    New Mount Preview - Is That a Saddle, Gear Changes in Patch 5.4.8

    New Mount Preview - Is That a Saddle?



    Gear Changes in Patch 5.4.8
    Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
    Gear changes are coming! First, in Patch 5.4.8 (which is currently in testing on the PTR), all upgradable epic items introduced to the game in Patch 5.4 will be given the option to upgrade 2 more times for a grand total of 16 item levels. This change will be applied to all items found on the Timeless Isle and in Siege of Orgrimmar. For instance, if you have an item level 553 Greatsword of Pride’s Fall and its Upgrade Level is 2/2 making it item level 561, once the new patch goes live it will display 2/4 and allow you the opportunity to bump it up to item level 569. Whether you’re working on a newly boosted character or progressing through Siege of Orgrimmar, we hope this change will provide you with the extra punch you need to take down your foes.

    Second, we are also adding a new token called Deeds of Valor which will cost 3000 Timeless Coins, and can be used to grant your character 100 Valor Points. Players who wish to purchase the new token can do so by visiting Mistweaver Ai on the Timeless Isle next to the Celestial Court. Keep in mind, these tokens won’t allow you to go above the current weekly cap on Valor, but they do provide you an extra option to gain the points you may need so you can upgrade your gear.

    Will this Deed of Valor be soulbound or account bound?
    They are currently planned to be BoP.

    are they adding another 8 ilvls to the Garrosh Heirlooms?
    No, the heirloom weapons that drop from Garrosh won't be affected by this change.

    Ugh, more item upgrading? They're removing reforging, but I would honestly rather see them remove upgrading first. It's just a pointless Valor sink that is pretty much mandatory. They claim that reforging was a not fun min/maxing mechanic, but I find upgrading to be even more not fun. It adds way less than reforging ever did.

    Coolest mount I've ever seen, hands down.

    This is Blizzards way of nerfing SOO without slapping 30% reduces hp / damage done on things.

    I think it's the lesser evil, though I agree it's not a very fun system.

    Eh? THey are removing item upgrading for WoD as well. This is just a sneaky way of nerfing SoO while also giving non-raiders a chance for some additional gear progression. A decent way to extend game life tbh (though it does make it much more painful to get new gear, 1k valor to upgrade it now).

    it looks like a feral quiraji battle tank. I must have it.

    Well at least the new store mounts are explicitly ground mounts. It'd be ballsy of Blizz to keep selling new flying mounts while removing flying.

    The fuck is Blizzard doing with the poor qiraji mounts? That thing should be killed, not put on the store.

    Here is the nerf to SoO people asked for, 2 more upgrades.

    A primordial ravager maybe?

    My initial thought was, "That looks like an insectoid race of Old God followers that may show up in Warlords".

    The wing membrane texture really screamed mantid-like to me. Perhaps these creatures will be related to a future patch?

    It looks like a giant red raven claw with a face or a Qiraj battle tank, Maybe the wings are like the same thing like a chopper and it'll be a flying mount.
