Today’s roundup of blue posts covers Allied Race boosting through Recruit-a-Friend, the Azerite system, Flight Master’s Whistle working in Legion zones & more.
Allied Race Recruit-a-Friend Boost
If your play an Allied Race and your friend grants you levels through RaF, you will be ineligible to receive Heritage Armor.
Receiving granted levels from Recruit A Friend would make the character ineligible for the heritage armor set.
If your friend grants levels to one of your Allied Race characters, it makes your character ineligible to receive the Heritage Armor.
If you grant levels to one of your friend’s characters, that won’t effect your eligibility for the armor.
But only the recruited player accumulates levels that can be granted, so that would be your friend. If they were to grant any of those levels onto your Void Elf, that would make your Void Elf ineligible for the armor.
Azerite System Underwhelming
It’s too early to consider the Azerite system underwhelming. Quest gear only contains generic traits and Azerite Armor from raids has better traits.
Surely im not the only one who feels this way? The azerite gear is essentially the netherlight crucible. Most traits are passive and boring. Does it get better as the xpac goes on or..?
Some of the default Azerite items from questing don’t have a lot of variety because you’re still leveling up. Once you’re at 120 and getting them from vendors, WQs, and dungeons you start seeing a lot more variety and some pretty neat stuff.
Like there’s one for Ret that reduces the cooldown of Divine Steed and it gives a speed buff to your entire raid when you use it. Which I thought was pretty rad.
It’s definitely early, but I’m eager to see how it plays out and how this system shapes up as well as what else we might do with it. It has potential, and I’m pretty excited about that alone as a player.
Unintended Conquest Cap
A bug in the Battle for Azeroth pre-patch caused players to receive Conquest from certain PvP activities, but that was never intended outside of Seasons.
With the Battle for Azeroth Pre-Patch, we incurred a bug that caused some PvP activities to reward Conquest. Conquest was never intended to be accessible while the season is not active, and while Conquest did appear for some players on their Character Currency tab, it wasn’t useable. There aren’t any items that can be exchanged for it in-game right now.
We’ll be deploying a hotfix soon that will change any activities that are currently awarding Conquest to award Honor instead.
When BFA Season 1 begins, players will start earning Conquest as planned. At the same time, we’ll convert any unintended Conquest that players earned during the post-season to Honor or gold.
Additionally, new one-time PvP quests will get reset when BFA Season 1 begins. We want to make sure you can complete those quests to earn Conquest from them as intended. These quests are located in the same place where you turn in Conquest quests, so they should be easy to spot.
We apologize for any confusion this may have caused, and we’re working to make the fixes and conversions as seamless as possible.
We look forward to everyone engaging with the new Conquest System upcoming in Season 1 of Battle for Azeroth! Click here to learn more.
Flight Master’s Whistle
Flight Master’s Whistle will be upgraded to work in BfA zones when you unlock world quests. If you didn’t play Legion or destroyed your whistle, you’ll receive a new one that will work in Legion zones as well.
