Honestly they could make the bonuses the most amazing thing in the world, that won't change the fact that players spent millions of gold on making their heirlooms level higher, then they brought the level cap down to the level they stop at without upgrades.The XP bonus is one thing, but that's small potatoes compared to the fact that all those upgrades are now meaningless.
good insight from an expert, tbh
Plain and simple. For the money spent on those heirlooms over the years, if the experience bonus is gone, then they need to make them OP. I dont care. Putting crappy bonuses on them is not good enough. It's either OP or give us our gold back.
People complaining about losing XP bonus from heirlooms are PUZZLING. You can literally level 1-50 in under 20 hours, and you want a speed boost? Wth happened to the MMO community?It doesn't matter that you spent time and G on obtaining heirlooms....that's how every xpack goes, you gain and lose stuff. You thought you'd keep them forever?
I disagree that the temporary power creep would be a big problem. If Blizzard holds to recent patterns, heirlooms will be available again to level with from 50-60 around the release of patch 9.1.5. I think many people would be fine with better heirloom perks that go away at 50 (but you get back fairly early in the expansion to use through 59) rather than lackluster perks that you don't even notice when they go away. If nothing else, the 2-piece and 6-piece bonuses need changed. I'm the type of player that would stop playing when my rested XP expired because in my mind I wouldn't be getting the full benefits available to me.
it doesnt effect quests at all, and msot of these set bonuses are completely useless
How obvious has it become that they try to artificially drag out things? If this type of s**t goes on for Shadowlands as well I'm out for good. Enough with this, they know what the players want.
Utter garbage. 30%/60% boost to rested experience? Every long time player I know when leveling up an alt burns through it in a week or two, therefore they have little or no "rested experience". As for the regen boost and triggered state buff, totally pointless in leveling where the battles are so trivial that unless you happen to pull 10 adds by mistake the fight won't even be mildly challenging. I would prefer Blizzard just straight out say "we are making heirlooms cosmetic only" than insult up with this tripe.
