    I love how off-topic this forum gets at times. Isn’t there a separate Remix thread

    Remix is 10.x content. Falls under the topic of this thread.

    I don't think I will ever upgrade the gear in Remix.

    Why would I spend millions of Bronze on gear that is destroyed the second TWW prepatch hits instead of getting the permanent cosmetics this mode was made for?

    The gear upgrade currency should have been something different. How has Blizz still not leaned that forcing people to choose between looks and power will never end well?

    Isn't it funny to think that there are Draenei older than IRL human civilisation. Lightforged Draenei would be worshipped as sun gods in ancient Egypt. Peak race.

    I literally said "Once they obliterate upgrade costs".

    It makes sense because upgrading gear allows you to get more bronze quicker. That's why the Charm exploit existing was an issue.

    Whole thing feels like some fake competition on birthday party, where everyone is doing it for fun but one parent took things way too seriously and act like a clown. Of course in WoW community madness spread like wildfire, so frog farm had to be removed or soon you couldnt find group for anything.

    They can't do that because people have already invested bronze in the upgrades.

    And? They nerfed things before everyone else could have a chance at similar bronze/hr gains. It's not like they are nerfing the people who spent their bronze that way.

    Yes they can. Blizzard and other companies have done that before. You can make a change going forwards.

    People would go mental if they had wasted millions of Bronze on upgrades with no refunds possible.

    Because you'll hit 70 and start abruptly getting OWNED IN THE FACE. I don't know what level your character is right now, but I know they aren't 70 from you saying this. Your performance will drop drastically at 70. Stuff that would have done 30-40% damage to you at say, level 40, will abruptly start one-shotting you at 70. Actual just normal non-elite quest-mobs will one-shot you sometimes even.

    You don't need to spend millions to get out of that, but you do need to spend tens of thousands.

    They should have, yeah.

    Let them. It's tiny number of people who have done that, and it's not "millions" - if they've made that much Bronze, they can make more.

    I'm 70 and it absolutely sucks. Would have frozen the XP gains around lvl 30 if that were possible in Remix. But alas, Stormwind and Mr. Twink are off limits.

    But the gear upgrades are way too expensive to even think about them when they use the same currency a the cosmetics that were supposed to be the main point of the event. They should have used Infinite Flightstones it some shit for the upgrades.

    And how could it be only tens of thousands when a weapon alone costs like 100k?

    Yep. That's why only way is to buff bronze gains. Not only frog enjoyers spend bronze on gear, normal people do it too. Cosmetic are not THAT expensive if you focus on stuff exclusive to the event.

    Having fun with Remix. Fresh 70 (non pumper) was a bit rough until I got better gear and started gemming stuff (yes. I didn't use gems until 70. It was a enough of a nightmare having to resocket tinker and cogwheels whenever I got an upgrade. I didn't want to add any more resocketing stuff).

    Is there a list of things that are definitely only obtainable in Remix?
    Stuff like the Shado-pan ensembles are Remix only, and things like the class-armour-type are semi-unique I guess. But I notice a lot of world armour sets and toys in the bazaar seem to be just stuff you can get in Retail.

    Good chance it could be. I wouldn't mind that personally. Blizzard has been killing it with mega-dungeons since Operation: Mechagon.

    The first time we see dominated Anduin is in the final phase of the Sylvanas fight - Then the Jailer immediately walks into Zereth Mortis.

    The cutscene where they're still building Kingsmorne was even released after Sanctum came out.

    You're assuming they couldn't refund the Bronze people spent on upgrades - They can, easily.

    The first time we see him dominated is the opening of 9.1 when he attacks the archon.


    He then shows up in both ardentweld and the maw to get the to get the other runes while dominated.
    All I ever wanted was the truth. Remember those words as you read the ones that follow. I never set out to topple my father's kingdom of lies from a sense of misplaced pride. I never wanted to bleed the species to its marrow, reaving half the galaxy clean of human life in this bitter crusade. I never desired any of this, though I know the reasons for which it must be done. But all I ever wanted was the truth.

    Anyone knows what addon this is?



    Would make remix a whole lot better to see which mounts I already have and which ones not.

    Why should they refer to a megadungeon as a raid internally?

    And in Ardenweald he probably killed quite a few locals. I think that is what is implied in the short story with
