MMO-Champion - Heart of the Valorous Buff Live This Weekend
Update (10:30 PM EST): It turns out that it was never possible to get the Kor'kron Shaman's Treasure that rewards the Dark Shaman cosmetic set in Flex due to a bug. This should be fixed after the upcoming server restarts.

Warlords of Draenor Alpha - Build 18322

Heart of the Valorous Buff Going Live This Weekend
It appears the Heart of the Valorous buff has gone live on US-Oceanic realms! The buff is scheduled to be live this Saturday and next Saturday in China.

Beginning Friday, May 30 at 9:00 a.m. realm-time, through Tuesday, June 10 at 9:00 a.m. realm-time, we’ll be applying the Heart of the Valorous buff which will increase the rate of Valor Point gains an additional 100%. Don’t wait to get in on the action!

    Good, they should do that. It has nothing to do with difficulty. It has to do with TIME. I haven't been able to raid on my shaman for 4 months cause no one will except you without the cloak, and I just now got the 20 runestones. Who cares that my main is 8/14 hm. Gotta have the cloak on my alt. The cloak needs to be buyable on any account that already has it on one character.

    Turns out that my friend tweeted Watcher about a possible bug (the same with Sha of Anger mount) and now they're fixing it...

    you must be talking bs ive heard of none of these rediclous and ludicerous reuiremts for raids that people have put on flex/normal heck i get wispered on mytoons weekly asking me if i wana join for normal and the ilvl of my toons ranged from 543-555 that i do flex on.

    tho even tho this is ot i hate when people use the flex browser to queu and look for normal mode pugs it make finding and making grps harder

    Not bad. Got 450 valor from quick heroic scenario run.

    If only those goblin engineers that made that buff could have removed valor cap. But we all know that goblins aren't smart enough for that.

    Oh I'd bet it won't be anything major either. I'd bet nearly everyone waiting for Wildstar unsubbed from WoW long ago.

    Which is why it seems silly they'd make this weak gesture. If they don't fear losing subs, why have an event coinciding with Wildstar's launch at all. If they do, why not something better than faster valor capping.

    Unless it's an elaborate trick, as some have theorized, to let players on the fence grind their weekly valor faster in order to stay subbed to WoW while they try Wildstar. Yeah, I enjoy tinfoilhatting. So what. :)

    You might be right for a certain group of video game nerds that play a whole array of games at the same time. But I doubt that this is more than a small minority group.
    I was unaware that the majority of people who play World of Warcraft play WoW and no other games. Thanks for enlightening me.

    This isn't a pro Wildstar post at all. It's more to laugh at the fact that Zarhym came out and flat out denied they do this on purpose when there is ton of history to the contrary but to be fair Blizzard has got away with many instances of treating their playerbase like idiots.
    ^ Summed up my feelings in a nutshell.

    Umm... So the Shammy in my guild that tried to go to a flex run as often as she could essentially wasted months worth of time for something that Blizz failed to pick up on for over half a year? I'm sorry but that's a bit more than bullshit...

    The quest isn't difficult, though. I think you're confused. Running LFR every week and crossing your fingers isn't a challenge. It's just time destroying and boring.

    So glad they dropped this on Friday instead of Tuesday so I could waste about 60000 timeless coins on alts.

    This might be useful if they would increase the weekly Valor cap. At this point in the expansion, 1k per week is dumb.

    Pretty much my feeling, was hyped up on Wildstar (great game but I honestly cannot support another MMO that has a mainly raid end game, I'll try it out later after the potential/eventual aftermath) but I honestly still like WoW more and forgot MK8 was coming out and with a free game to boot (Windwaker HD here, its been 11 years since I played the original).

    Booted Tera back up and leveled the new Reaper class up and loving the shit out of it.

    Seriously though, just a 1.5 week buff with no cap increase? That's pretty fucking lame, Bliz....

    Yep, my feelings as well... mighty pissed by the whole affair tbh... Would like them to retro actively roll on the set for us for each attempt we missed out on.. but hey that's not gonna happen is it

    Yeah because this expansion wasn't 10 bucks not too long ago. Oh that's right when anyone other than Blizzard does it their game is a failure but when Blizzard does it it's a genius move right?

    Why waste time and money on other games?
    Obvious troll is obvious.

    The funniest part about all of this is if you seriously didn't think something was a threat you wouldn't even care. The fact that the mere mention of the Widlstar gets people all bent out of shape shows how paranoid you are about something posing a threat to your precious World of Warcraft not realizing that lack of competition allows nothing but stagnation in the industry. But hey if you enjoy doing Siege for the 900th time by all means keep at it.

    If WoW is the only game you really play then I honestly feel extremely sorry for you and the many gaming experiences you miss out on.
