    Changes in 10.0.5 to Item Upgrades

    War Mode and Primal Storms gear are no longer be upgradeable by trading gear and upgrade currency (Trophies of Strife, Storm Sigils) at the previous vendors (Malicia in the Gladiator’s Refuge and Rethelshi in the Sapphire Enclave). These items now use the other item upgrade vendors that Valor, Honor, and Conquest gear have used, such as Corxian in the Gladiator’s Refuge.

    War Mode and Primal Storms gear obtained at level 70 prior to this patch will still be upgradeable. However, War Mode gear obtained pre-level 70, before the patch, will not be upgradeable.

    • New pre-level 70 gear obtained after the 10.0.5 patch went live will be upgradeable.

    There’s a bug fix in patch 10.0.5 that made The Drakebreaker’s Breastplate now cost 10 Trophies of Strife to upgrade. This was done to make it consistent with other chest pieces.

    What godawful prick thought it would be a good idea to screw over alts and casual players? I still had 4 pieces left to upgrade because of the Storm Sigil time gating. Can't upgrade anything right now.

    You can still upgrade them, you just need to go to a different person. Ask a guard in Valdrakken for the Item Upgrade NPC. Its in the hall with the PvP vendors. you can upgrade there same as before
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    Incorrect. I have tested it with the old items and a newly bought item. Both say they can't be upgraded.

    You can upgrade them, maybe go to the upgrade vendor as the blue post says.

    I got the same issue. All the 359 items I bought on Monday says "can no longer be upgraded" So I bought a new 359 belt and it says "can no longer be upgraded". This is from Corxian.

    No issue upgrading valor mythic+ items on the same toon

    Also disabled all add-ons just to be sure, still failed

    I just tried wit ha bit of gear i had in my bag and the same bit i just bought, neither can be upgraded.
    1) Load the amount of weight I would deadlift onto the bench
    2) Unrack
    3) Crank out 15 reps
    4) Be ashamed of constantly skipping leg day

    do you have the currency needed to upgrade the piece? I think you're misreading it.

    Upgrading was blocked due to an exploitable bug i believe.

    Note the "upgrade 1/2"

    Seems like they might have fixed it. After not working all morning I was just able to upgrade an item I bought today.
    I found I enjoyed the game significantly more when I stopped paying attention to all the people on the forums telling me how much I am supposed to hate it
    All this complaining is simply further proof that Blizzard could send each and every player a real-life wish-granting flying unicorn carrying a solid gold plate of chocolate chip cookies wrapped in hundred dollar bills, and someone would whine that Blizzard sucks for not letting them choose oatmeal raisin.
