    Burning Crusade Classic - Honor Rate Increase in Phase 3, Hotfixes - January 26, 2022

    Burning Crusade Classic - Honor Rate Increase in Phase 3

    Hi Zuelase,

    Thank you for the feedback! This is a topic that we have been closely following along and discussing internally. For some transparency, we want to be extra careful when adjusting significant systems such as rewards in Burning Crusade Classic. We strive for authentic recreations as the best approach with our design as substituting our own judgements has great potential to harm the spirit of the original game. For example, we risk negatively impacting the perceived value of these items or affecting other areas of the game by changing the rate of power progression.

    That said, we hear your frustrations with the current rate of PvP reward acquisition and think there are ample reasons to justify a #change. When we compare PvE and its rewards, there’s a stark contrast with the level of effort and time investment required. Players are better now, all the best raid strategies have been figured out, and those rewards are much more accessible!

    We attempted to address this in Season 2 by introducing PvP faction items early (a change introduced with Sunwell’s release) and reducing the costs of previous season gear by half, but we don’t think those changes were nearly enough.

    The following changes are planned to release with tomorrow’s Phase 3 content unlock:

    • PvP faction items now have an Honored reputation requirement (from Revered).
    • The battleground mark costs for Season 1 gear have been removed.
    • The battleground mark costs on Vindicator items have been reduced by half.
    • The amount of bonus honor rewarded from the marks-to-honor repeatable quest has been increased.
    • The Call to Arms daily quest now provides 3 battleground marks and the bonus honor reward has been increased.
    • The Halaa and Terokkar PvP daily’s bonus honor reward has been significantly increased.
    • The Hellfire Fortification PvP daily now provides a bonus honor reward.
    • Tier 4 and 5 tokens can now be exchanged for season 1 and 2 gear at tier vendors.

    We hope that this will make a significant impact. Please continue to tell us how you feel about this, we’ll be listening!

    Are the people who bought their Vindi gear this week going to get a refund on the difference of the cost of marks? Would be kind of crappy if we didn't.

    An obvious change that should have happened months ago. As usual blizzard being a day late and a dollar short.

    Happy for the change but I just finished buying all the gear from a patch released A WEEK ago. Horrible timing. Crazy how a positive change can highlight the poor planning and devalue the effort people put in. I understand that effort/gear depreciate with time, but literally one week is a slap in the face.

    When you buy something, but that thing goes on sale right after you are just unlucky.

    It can happen anytime. For some people it is unluckily the day right after the bought something.

    Do why? Because of few days before change ? All could say like that no matter when bought items.

    Good change. having a tedious grind attached to PvP is always a terrible idea.

    Very good timing with the change.

    A bit before half way through the expansion so that late comers can catch up.

    IT would not make any sense before as everyone was starting from 0. But now you´d have way too much gap between new comers and people who started from release...

    I am fine with this.

    Altough BG's will become even more infested with fresh 70's, it was already a nightmare before but now it's going to get worse.

    It's being presented as something new, when in reality, it isn't.
