The new animations for Prismatic Barrier and Blazing Barrier are lazy and half arsed re-skins, probably took them 5 seconds to create, Prismatic Barrier is Mana Shield's old look and Blazing Barrier is a flame animation pasted over the 2D bubble, both texture and bubble is used elsewhere.Demonic Infusion is is Demon Spikes.When you put "New Spell Animations" in the title do you even know what it means? What does the word "New" mean to you because I think you find that the reality is far different than what you are using it for so please stop posting false titles, it's a lie and you know it.
Can't wait to learn more about the tokens for Bnet balance. Would like to be able to purchase boosts with them as well. And, the limit should be lifted, allowing as many tokens on a character/account as the player wants to buy.
Thereby reverse penalling all people who did it the long way...thanks blizz. 700-1000 would have been the fair approach.Why do I say that?You just have to push yourself to 10 and do some WQs and the Suramar-QL its ridiculous how much AP you will gain and this is really unfair for people who did it the long way. I have it running on 3 chars and one is above AK 13 right now...and I play for weeks...I fell stabbed in the back by Blizz Devs again. Why not have hockeystick curve up to 15? 30mins be the first and 70h the last...I guess that would be fair.
I agree - AK should be ACCOUNT wide - I would gladly give up thousands of Order Resources to make that happen.I'm sorry, but Blizzard really hosed how AK is done for ALT's on this "ALT FRIENDLY" expansion they promised.YES... I see the days trimmed down a little bit on my ALT's, but to be honest it's really crappy catch up and not ALT friendly.YES... 7.1.5 looks great to take ALT's up to 15 after grinding 1-10 slow as can be already. So when does it release? (Dec? Jan?) Too little - to late if you ask me. This AK change should have been done in 7.1 if they actually wanted to see more people playing. Right now I'm burned out trying to keep 1-2 ALT's caught up and my MAIN has had to suffer in AP because of this. Not even touching ALT's on the other faction since I'd have to hit 110 prior to even starting AK grind. (Why bother)
FUTURE SCALING of this 1-15?In order to "FIX" this long term for those joining Legion later in the cycle we should see is scale beyond 15 as each patch comes out.7.2 would be 1-20 for example.7.2.1 would be 1-257.3 would be 1-30etc... you get the point (As you move the content out and the months go by you need to ramp up this AK catch up mechanic to be fair to new players.Just a suggestion. Right now most "First Leveled" 110's are already past AK 15 levels and by the time 7.1.5 drops I'm willing to be several will be at the 20 level so this catch up is already 5 levels behind those that started on day one. (About right, but still a bit behind by 2-3 levels IMHO)
They're not offering a way for players to instantly gain AK on their mains - they're removing a penalty on alts. My understanding is your main will still have to wait for the AK to be researched.
