PvP Belohnungen: Hotfix bringt Vielseitigkeits-Items zum Händler

Community Manager Lore hat nun im offiziellen Forum einen Hotfix für die PvP Belohnungen angekündigt. Zudem erklärt Lore, was man wirklich in den PvP Schließkassetten finden kann.

Diese können nie Belohnungen enthalten, die beim Eroberungspunkte-Händler gekauft werden können. Ebenso kann es keine Umhänge, Halsketten oder Ringe in den Schließkassetten geben. Auch Gegenstände mit Setbonus können dort nicht gefunden werden.

Man arbeitet an einem Hotfix, der die Gürtel, Füße und Armschienen, die Vielseitigkeit als Wert haben aus den Schließkassetten entfernt. Diese werden stattdessen beim Eroberungspunkte-Händler zu kaufen sein. Nachdem Hotfix werden die Schließkassetten also nur die folgenden Rüstungsslots beinhalten: Kopf, Brust, Hände, Schultern, Beine und die Schmuckstücke mit einem zufälligen Wert.

Since the release of Patch 6.2, we’ve gotten a ton of feedback regarding the Champion’s Strongboxes rewarded from Ashran and Rated Battlegrounds. We’ve been discussing that feedback heavily since the patch released, and wanted to take a moment to clarify some confusion as well as share an upcoming change.

To start, we’d like to clarify exactly what can be found inside a Champion’s Strongbox, as some (though certainly not all) players seemed to be anticipating items that they’d never have been able to get from the Strongboxes anyway:

  • Strongboxes can never reward items that can be purchased with Conquest Points.
  • Strongboxes can never reward cloaks, necks, or rings.
  • Strongboxes can never reward items with set bonuses.

With that said, we definitely recognize that the Strongbox rewards (or rewards from any box, for that matter) are unclear, and that’s something we’re looking to improve upon in the future.

In addition, we’re currently in the process of applying a hotfix that will remove the Versatility belts, boots, and bracers from the Strongboxes, and make them available on the Conquest vendors instead. Once this hotfix is active, Champion’s Strongboxes will only reward helms, chestpieces, gloves, shoulders, and legs, as well as the Accolade random stat trinkets. Remember that armor pieces earned from Strongboxes do not grant set bonuses, so most players will only want to equip one of those pieces.

We feel that this change will allow there to still be a benefit to earning the Champion’s Strongboxes over the course of the season, but due to the fact that you’ll still want to complete your set bonuses, that benefit will be a little extra flexibility in gearing choices instead of simply having Versatility items another player may not have won. This also greatly increases the chances of earning a desirable item from your Strongbox (at least, until you have everything you want from them) by reducing the overall number of possible items you could get.

Thanks again for all of the feedback on this topic. We’re hopeful that this change will greatly improve the gearing experience in Warlords Season 2, and are taking all of your feedback to heart as we plan for future seasons.
