    Most of that is speeded up a lot with the increase of drops, also you don't need to do dungeons if you dislike that like me.

    Only SoO, though, as it now has a catch up mechanic as well.

    Actually, I loved that aspect in TBC.

    I started in Jan 2008 and had a goal to get what I could before WotLK launched. I got Champion of the Naaru by a hair! Sure this all takes longer when you do the very linear raid by raid journey, but then it is just that, A JOURNEY.

    Let's not get in that debate here though.

    I could look it up when I got home, but ...

    My lock has had particularly horrid luck with rings, as I still have a Fleshshapers (the other is a nice valor piece). Can you get rings out there?

    the ppl that don't like this are those with few or no alts, and feel cheated per say

    This is good, very welcomed now. Should this have been in MoP start then not so much.
    There was no such thing as "ability bloat" just l2fp.

    Totally agree with that. My dk has ilvl 525. What a big upgrade he will have with 530 <.<.

    Newcomers? NEWCOMERS!? There's newcomers in WoW? Very few, I'd venture saying.
    This is all about addressing the endless QQ durin Mists about how hard it is to gear up alts.
    Ask and ye shall be given.

    So this patch...is pretty awesome. Let's be honest, there's no reason catch up mechanics shouldn't be near instant this late in an expansion. We're on the last raid tier and this makes perfect sense. Additionally the ways to obtain the gear are rather fun. The Isle is very interesting and Flex raids already seem to be a hit. I've gotta say, I think they are headed in a great direction.

What if your raid needed you to start tanking or dps'ing in SoO? Best way to get to that point is to farm Timeless Isle for a day with your current main and send all those goodies to your alt.

    I really like it.
    Yeah, I'm planning to do this. I've got my resto Druid alt at 87, 2 well-geared characters, and 1 that's in the middle (but still needs a weapon upgrade). I've not checked, but are Timeless coins BoP? I mean, I plan to send almost all of the tokens to my Druid ready for 90 but if I could get a weapon with the coins without having to farm them on the mid-geared alt, then that'd be a bonus. It's not a big deal if I need to, I just figure they'd learn from the issue many people had with lesser charms and motes/spirits (i.e. not account bound). Since the Druid is resto, I absolutely don't plan on farming TI with it at all until I get a full resto set from the tokens and thus enough gear to crossover to balance to make it effective.

    EU maintenance started about 30 mins ago, so another 7:35 hours to go.

    It's worse than LFR. LFR has awesome trinkets, sockets and set bonuses. The only pieces I can imagine that are better at the Timeless isle are boots, bracers, weapons, capes(lol), necks and rings. And can you even obtain the last 4 of those?

    When elitist jerks would not artificially inflate requirements then maybe such catchups might not be needed.
    But they continue to do so.
    Usual biased anti-blizzard rant with no consideration for the reasons.

    It is either that or dungeons which you can then ignore for any reason other than valor, and would complain about instead.

    So just to clarify (all the disconnected info about Timeless is getting jumbled in my head).

    I have one "geared" character (Hunter, iLevel 485) from very early MoP before I left back in late 2012, and then the rest are level 85 alts from Cata.

    What would be the best way to approach gearing those alts up if I want to bring a stable of characters together for amusing myself in Proving Grounds? Level each class to 90 and spam Heroics for 463s + JP? Or would farming Timeless Isle be better? If so, should I just use the Hunter for that, or level each character and go through the Isle personally?

    496 won't get you far when majority of raiders are dangling at 540+, the cap for a newly dinged player to get into raiding is way too long..

  19. #59
    Except 496 is utter crap gear that won't even put you in ToT normals

    What's going on in Syria is disgusting. What this is, on the other hand, is allowing people to gear up alts for the current tier.

    What is it with people like you throwing around the word 'disgusting' over nothing?
