    I would temper your expectations till more is know, i would not put it past them that there is some sort of time sink involved just to get those active numbers back up again for a few months.

    Same goes with storing Anima, they have made system changes or additions in the past where resources obtained before the change would not carry over. While anima is not directly linked to player power so it seems less likely it is hard to give them the benefit of the doubt when it comes to designing systems players actually want.

    so i assume, the plan is, shortly after reaching renown cap, 9.1.5 will be released. this would be somewhere in november. which perfectly fits typical wow shedule behaviour of Blizz in the recent years. mid november would offering them:

    - something to release when the summer is over (a while) and the gaming season starts.
    - something to release a while after T6 in TBC Classic, to stretch things.
    - something to keep ppl subbed from autumn to xmas.
    - something thats relatively „actual“ while xmas holidays.

    i bet 100 bugs, they release 9.1.5 mid november, 1-3 weeks after reaching max renown. its nearly obvious.

    Ah, my mistake, it has been a while since i switched (And scurried back)...

    Anyway, they put in a renown catch-up a while ago, i'm pretty sure that for the first 50 levels or so they'll toss renown at you for anything you do, there was a bit about an option to skip the covenant campaign and get the renown for it anyway, and anima rains from the sky up in Korthia, so that's not as bad to catch up as it used to be, either.

    Haha nope. You don't have PTR yet even.
    All my ignores are permanently filtered out and invisible to me. Responding to my posts with nonsense or insults is pointless, you're likely already invisible and if not - 3 clicks away. One ignore is much better than 3 pages of trolling.

    We will have to wait for that in a years time.....when its too late, with some sort of excuse why they did it without admitting they were wrong yadda yadda yadda. Seems to be the trend with blizzard.

    That's when the next classic patch releases. No chance they will overlap the little bit of "content" they have.

    So far no word on souls. So you won't be able to get everything simply by being gated by souls and other progression items.
    #1) MMO-C should be glad that the British Empire is no more, because they'd want a piece of all the copium trade here.
    #2) Angry players come to the forums to complain about the game... but what loser only comes to the forums to complain about the forums and its users?
    #3)Felating Blizzard too eagerly may lead to oxygen deficiency and worst case asphyxiation. Long-term effects range from delusions up to cerebral necrosis. #4) The WoW playerbase doesn't deserve housing.

    I mean each covenant has their own quest for it, so you can probably do them all in parallel, but you need quite alot, so you probably won't be able to unlock everything in less than 8 weeks with the current numbers.

    Not really, 80 is just 7 weeks away from PTR start. I don't expect we will have to earn it on other covenants, but catch up is fast as hell anyway.

    Don't get question "whats the point". When you get 80 Renown, it stays here when you swap back. Point is to have ability to play different covenants during week. For example Night Fae is my BIS covenant for raid, but I want some M+ and other covenant is best of that. Beside that I would like progress Venthyr party, which you can progress only once a week. It's impossible to it all in 9.1, but will be in 9.1.5.

    Sort of .. the only thing I doubt is that you'll be able to use them without being affiliated to the covenant they belong to on that character.

    So far Blizzard has not yet specified how it works.
    You keep all you had in a specific covenant. Same as it is now.
    You dont lose anything when you switch, so I cant see why would be diferent.

    Each covenant have their own renown lvl and anima resevoir.

    The Renown catchup is in place for any week where you aren't at the cap for that week. So the week resets, you don't do your weekly Anima quests, go to raid wednesday night, the bosses can drop Renown, thus allowing you to skip the weekly renown quests if you want. It happened to me once or twice this patch.

    No way this goes live in 8 weeks. They need the sub, they will push it in under 1 month. It is not like a huge content update more like pre launch fix for new expansion

    You reach max once and that is it. The only logical conclusion from the official posts.

    even when they really in trouble now and need to provide output fast.

    9.1.5 will be before or right at the launch of endbringers its the patch meant to cripple ff14... as insane as that is to consider.

  18. #38
    So no we know that anima is not going to be account wide, but at least transferrable among your chars.
    That most likelly means that Grateful Offerings are not going to account wide, which means indeed you will have to spend weeks and months per covenant to farm those to buy all cosmetics.

  19. #39
    They said a way to tramsfer anima if you have a "fully upgraded sabctum". I have no interest in this and just want to go cosmetic covenant shopping, so still banking anima just to be on the safe side.

    This is a pretty good assumption to make. I don't think they'll make it a talent row or anything, swapping will be done just like it has always been done but without the grind, you'll continue where you left off last time.
