'Something will happen at the start of the Battle for Azeroth that will result in everyone losing their artifacts. 'How... disappointing. Grind like crazy for AP then take it away. Kinda a finger up from blizzard to me.On another note my wife said she love that shirt. She always got some of the coolest shirt on. (:
"We'll keep iconic legendaries" basically sounds like they're either going back to MoP/WoD-style legendaries where it's an expansion-long questline or (less likely) pre-MoP-style legendaries where a static raid group needs to help a chosen person put it together. The Heart of Azeroth neck kind of *is* a MoP/WoD-style legendary, from what it sounds like.
I mean they said it from the very start. And it is the same as any other part of wow. You grind and then an expansion comes along and resets it all. It's part of the fun
Artifact Weapon - Mixed feelings. Always expect to just get rid of past expac gear, immediately. But, the weapon required quite a bit of effort to grind out, so, it feels a bit different than your typical gear turnover. Would be nice to see 'something' as a result of the effort put in.Legendary's - Good, they didn't feel legendary, and 18 of the 22 I have right now just sit in my bank, never getting used (and never a chance of being used either).Warforging/Titanforging - I have to say this system annoyed me greatly this tier (ToS), and I think it's because all reward items are on the same table. What I mean is, gear you are awarded from World Quests, PVP stuff etc... is on the same table for WF/TF procs, as stuff you'd get in raids. For months I've watched useless vendor trash proc WF/TF, while seeing none of that in raids. Highly annoying. That having been said, this was more of a frustration over my own luck, rather than caring about the system itself. I could take or leave it really.
'Something will happen at the start of the Battle for Azeroth that will result in everyone losing their artifacts. 'I hope this "something" is your character retiring from their class order and handing the artifact over to the new leader. I would hate for cool weapons such as the Ashbringer to get destroyed.
I believe they said prestige system is staying, so maybe it'll directly reward the mogs on reaching the required level - just my theory.
Um... Shouldn't TLDR be putted on the head of the article? xD
Also to clarify - in the latest Q&A with Ion he stated that the Fishing Artifact will be staying in BFA :) Hooray!
But when will it be released? Are we to hammer out Antorus raid and AP world quests until the end of next summer? In that case ill just put it on the shelf and save myself 6-8 months of sub fees.
I've asked before and I'll ask again, does this mean we are going back to regular weapon drops? nowhere is this specified, and TBH (at least in my opinion) it would really suck going back to that system after Artifacts
A simple necklace cannot be made into an artifcat. >.<
So if I don't play BfA I get to keep my artifact weapon? Sure, I won't get to enjoy the new content but soul flame makes farming old content so much faster! I really hope we somehow get to keep that trait.
I'm down with most of the things that may or may not happen in this expansion... That being said... There were a lot of traits and spells that were given to us by the artifact. What will happen to those traits? What about Hati :(? Don't take away my second friend <cries>
It was said since the beginning, so nobody shouldn't be surprised about the loss of our weapon.BUT the fact is that the great storyline they put into it, the fact that we develop it little by little and we see it growing in power in our hands, the fact that it is so deeply linked to the character...said reasons make it way different than anything we got before.Sure there was great questlines in both MoP and WoD, but honestly it was nothing compared to the effort to develop our artifact. That's why I am à bit sad thinking I will lose my artifacts.And since I main a hunter, I am sad to lose Hati as well. I haven't tamed it but it's part of the family nowadays.../sadface
