So while I think the idea of Suramar dungeons being Mythic only and rep gated is fine, I really hate that they are part of the Mythic+ system. Two of the people I run with are playing on alts that don't have the rep yet, so every time one of the three mains gets one of those it is really annoying. And the dungeons themselves aren't really conducive to the Mythic+ system, they don't function well as speed run timer dungeons. They are really fun in their own right, but they are definitely some of the weaker dungeons specifically concerning mythic plus in my opinion. I don't know what they can do to fix this bar just removing them from being M+ options, but for now it has the possibility to kind of ruin a play session with friends.

E: Also, another reason I don't like the "your keystone starts high" system. Looks like one of our regulars can't make it this week, so gonna have to pug our 5th. Not really feeling like pugging for +7s, would just rather do some easier stuff. So we have to find pugs with keystones, and never get to use ours, and we have to constantly replace people instead of running a bunch with a set group. Mildly annoying.

At the very least I think the unlock should be account wide. Fucking no one wants to go through the whole Suramar quest chain on multiple characters, but at the moment it's like semi-mandatory for people who care about dungeons at all and play more than one character.

Can't hurt to try. Say "I completely forgot to do this" and make sure you send a follow up in-game mail to the guy who you sent it to, so that it's on the record.

Opened a ticket. Response time:24 hours

Let's hope the guy doesn't log in till then >_>;

I'd have been content with even double rep gains like you could unlock in pandaland. As is, I want to start up some alts but when I think about the Suramar grind (that I've enjoyed doing once), I don't want to do it all over agin.

I agree, that would go a long way in making it less shitty. Honestly, Blizzard has been REALLY reluctant to provide anything this expansion that makes levelling alts even slightly better, to the point where it almost feels like a direct effort to make people stick to their mains. No AP catch up for alts, no suramar catch up, the exact same content to level through no matter what alt you play, the same rep requirements to unlock world quests...

I really loved that system in Pandaria, and I also really liked that it kicked in at Revered even for your main. Felt very rewarding and really helped with that thankless Revered-Exalted grind. Dunno why they've never implemented this system again.

Anyone have any tips for farming Ancient Mana rather quickly? I blew all of mine on Withered Training and then got to the quest where you need 'pay' 800 to a shady character to continue forward. I'd like to forge ahead and finish up Suramar ASAP so any recommendations would be appreciated.

North East corner of the city. Where you did the quest to make the wine.

Manaseeker on shoulders and just ride around looking for nodes and killing shit. 800 isn't all that much, I had a guy ask for 1200 and managed it pretty quick.

So from what I've read on the Warrior forums, Fury Warriors are possibly getting some love soon? I sure hope so. I'm doing everything right and still falling behind the dps curve. I have moments of greatness when my CDs are ready, but man, when nothing procs, I feel like I'm sitting there with my thumb in my ass. I'm at iLV 849 and can't pull 160k+ consistently. It's really frustrating. My gear is pretty decent, my Artifact is 875 19 points in, my rotations are good. I hope they help us out, I feel pretty useless most of the time in dungeons/raids.

At the very least, more BoA tokens would be nice. I get the +250 Nightfallen ones from my Class Hall missions as BoA but why not just replace the Withered Army ones with BoA tokens? Feel like there's pretty easy spots to do something beneficial here.

The bay to the east of the Viking area is also pretty good for farming mana, be sure to go through the quest chain to get the water breathing/move speed buff though. Since I can full clear withered training starting with 8 crack fiends now, I've been selling excess Ancient Mana Crystals on the AH for 200g a pop.

If anything now's a good time to do it with the 50% more rep buff, but I am in agreement that the repgate is obnoxious for alts. I was hoping they would do something similar to Panda where if your main was exalted, they could buy the double rep item for your account.

Speaking of rep, I'm finally exalted with everyone, so now I can ignore all WQs unless they give loot and AP. I also got level 25 on my weapon, so now I have all 3 golden traits. FeelsGoodMan

Forget world bosses. Had a try, multiple times, at this weeks and what a crap show. First time dies several times and last run to get back and res he was downed. I got old for it apparently but not credit for the world quest. Second time was in a group and if the resets were not bad enough I didn't get credit again because I was dead. I mean come on it's quite hard to stay alive on these things.

Okey I was watching the Fatboss guide for the new Karazhan dungeon.

First 15secs I hear "We was playing around with it"

Then on 3min he says "In this encounter there is 3 mobs..."

Call me a grammar nazi but I just closed the video over there. Is my English wrong or are they way off? When did people became so lazy with a simple differentiation of was and were, especially when you make a video? Think if these guys learnt a another language they would commit suicide.

It's frustratingly common in England, unfortunately. You'll even hear it on TV, though it is generally footballers saying it :p

the only account wide is the glory achievement one

Really wish they'd make the "This Side Up" archaeology one account wide too. That's annoying ot do on so many alts. It takes 16 weeks at a minimum.

Also are Kirin Tor world quests bugged? I'm at one in Azsuna and there's no NPC.

Yes, I use TSM. No, I can't easily help you if you've watched videos and can't figure it out from there unless you have specific questions.

Man as much as I do like Legion, the game is absolutely far-and-away the most buggy it's ever been. Loading times are wildly inconsistent, I've had three quests that bugged completely (older, non-Legion quests) that a GM had to resolve them for me, and the "Retrieving Item Information" bug is spreading like a sickly plague to strike when its least convenient.

They've done a lot with the engine over the years so, look I get it, but man it can be a drag sometimes.

So I made a Darkmoon Deck: Dominion this morning. Yeah that was about 140k. Not sure exactly why, but it should be a slight DPS increase.

PERFORMANCE ANXIETY PRESSURED ME INTO IT.

At least it's only a handful of hours worth of herbing to make back the cost, lul.

Though herb prices have gone down a bit. Will have to see if they rise today since it's reset.

Teeming in Black Rook Hold is also funny. Groups with 6-7 mobs or 3 big Felguards during the Gauntlet.
And according to stories, since I wasn't there myself: The big group after Hymdall has 8 or even 9 mobs with teeming. :D

Really? That's what my group got and we were pretty stoked. Even with the timer change hotfix EoA was our 3 best runs last week. That double giant pull will be fun though... I'm more worried about +7 and higher, skittish this week will be un-fun with a mostly melee group...

God teeming BRH is my nightmare. I already hate that place enough.. That spider staircase is gonna be fun...

They really need to add main stats back to Neck/Rings, having pure secondaries on them is so bad.. I got a neck that is 35ilvls above what I got and its still not even an upgrade because of terrible itemization.

I think its like that for everyone.

That weird overlay it does (which I can't figure out how to remove?) doesn't help.

Managed to down Heroic Ursoc tonight. What a fucking ballache. I actually enjoyed the fight, but I'm tired as fuck and recovering from a cold so focusing on the quick taunts was a struggle at times and I wiped our raid a couple of times because of me fucking up. On the actual kill, I've never focused as hard during a boss as I was then. Crazy stuff.

3/7HC so far, 858 ilvl. Still no legendary.
