I didn't expect an actual catch-up weapon. Now the campaign feels like a good way to gear up alts; a near-full armour set of pieces upgradable to ilevel 197 and an ilevel 187 weapon. Wish rings and trinkets were a bit more common and the anima upgrade cost was somewhat lower but that's certainly better than nothing.
I'm not an alt person, but this might make me more comfortable to play alts.Pretty much getting close to 200 ilvl worth of gear and only having to do last 2 bosses of normal and all of heroic for raid gear seems reasonable.
Venthyr quest seems kinda bugged - the final fight ends and it seems clear there should be a cutscene, but it just boots me out of the scenario. The quest is completed, but I'm certain I didn't see something.
I am going through the exact same thing. As soon as the Venthyr campaign scenario's boss HP hit 0 I was booted out. Quest completed, but it's more than clear that there was supposed to have been a cutscene there.
The scenario is bugged for Venthyr. Right at the beginning the NPCs that we must kill can't actually die and the portal is really buggy as well. Can't complete it for now :/
My druid alt is on renown 14, looks like the catch-up mechanism stopped then so I will just finish the Kyrian campaign with my pala.
All I want is account-wide same covenant sanctum level. For example if I have covenant story finished with main character, they should allow our alts to have same renown level with THAT covenant. Plus you need tons of anima to farm... "mOsT aLt fRiEndLy eXpAnSiOn" - HOW? how this is alt friendly? only stupid Fate thing? that is peak of the iceberg... storyline is easy to do, main problem is upgrades of sanctum.
Venthyr campaign finale is buggy. Scenario starts needing a scripted NPC that doesn't always spawn in (fixed by leaving scenario, abandoning and reaccepting quest, and starting over). It also doesn't play the final cutscene; you finish the last stage of the scenario and it hard stops, boots you back to portal with quest completed.So glad to have such a thrilling climax after 2 months of waiting for it because of time gate. /s
Exit the portal/mirror and go back in until you get Kael'thas as a companion. He is needed to progress the scenario.
This is an example of a good catch-up system. My freshest alt will be almost 190 tomorrow when this goes live in EU- the majority of that is from this quest (couple of world quests to fill the spots). There’s room for improvement for alt friendliness but this is a good step forward from Bliz
I just wish there was more weapon model options (coming from a Plate-wearer).Night Fae have a 1H Mace, 2H Mace, and Polearm.Kyrian have a 1H Axe, 1H Sword (with a diff spellblade), 2H Mace, and 2H Sword.Venthyr have a 1H Mace, 1H Sword (with diff spellblade), and 2H SwordNecrolord have a 1H Axe, 2H Axe, and Polearm (and 1H Mace for Casters)We REALLY need more visual options that match more. Being with Night Fae is such a "Well... these maces look pretty meh... and the polearm is kinda lackluster too", despite liking the armour set.
Seems the Night Fae campaign gives you both tokens for off hand and main hand.. My characters on Venthyr and Kyrian had to choose 1 of the 2.
I completed all 4. Fae was given both weapon tokens as a reward (aff lock). The others, only award one token.
