Rank 3 Uldum Accord and Rajani Reputation Essences Now Require Revered
A hotfix implemented tonight has lowered the requirements to purchase the rank 3 version of the following new essences (rank 1 earned from the Black Empire campaign intro quests) from exalted to revered, which lessens the grind by quite a bit!

    Need Exalted for the rune.

    This is good. Now make R2 Essences BoA and the cloak acquiring chain instantly available in the Chamber for alts.

    Nice, less grind? Is Blizzard finally starting to be player-friendly?

    no. The Cloak Quest is current Content and it doesnt take very long to get it since you can skip the longest Part anyway

    The cloak requires 1 Scenario to be finished, atleast put some effort into it.

    As someone who has done it around 15-16 times now, yea, it really doesn't take much time at all. Got it down to just over an hour maybe? I don't time it though.

    Rank 2 is the quest once a week for 3 weeks. After that you get R2 for offspec doing it once.

    it's only less grind if you don't want sockets on all your gear. if you want sockets you still have to do the dailies for coalescing visions.

    I think almost everyone that has been doing the dailies hit or is about to hit revered this week.

    Good change, but not enough.

    We NEED some system to make essences easier to obtain by alts.

    Even if they made them easier, people would call for them to be even MORE easier... it's a never ending cycle.

    Could they be a little easier? Sure, make it honored instead of revered if you already have it. Should they be free? Hell no, put some effort into your alts or you don't really want to play them.

    This is no rush and mostly for characters that will have bis gear. I don't have to do it on every alt anymore. Without pressure of "get exalted asap" I can focus on doing 3x invasion per week + mini visions daily and be fine.

    The whole "have to grind for the sockets!" things is just silly. It's really nothing more than a nerfing mechanism overall (on top of other things) by the time a lot of people start even getting them their progression will be over.

    So what are you saying here? That we can't please people because there'll still be people who aren't pleased? Doesn't that apply to... everything? Ever?

    not really. i imagine people who stayed on top of it can start getting a socket a week in 2-3 weeks orso. sooner if you can already pull off 4-5 masks runs now.
