The Warcraft Devs Listened!

Good afternoon guys, I was going to post this blog yesterday, but a number of things popped up that meant this post was slightly delayed, but have no fear, it comes with some epic news…

You Think You Do… And We Do Too!

As you’ve probably noticed already via Twitter, or in-game, the Warcraft Devs have listened to the pleas from the World of Warcraft community and have extended the ‘Winds of Wisdom‘ Buff. The buff will now be extended until the release of the Shadowlands pre-patch. You’d have read in my previous blog post, that Towelliee had hinted that the Devs may extend it if the COVID lockdown was extended, and given the friends he knows within Blizzard, I felt he maybe knew a little more than he was letting on.

Experience is Key, but so is Reputation…

Not only that, but the Devs also added another buff called, ‘Impressive Influence‘ until 18th May. As you’ll know, the ‘Winds of Wisdom‘ buff offers an experience gain of 100%, with the ‘Impressive Influence‘ buff, we also benefit from a reputation gain with factions within Legion and Battle for Azeroth expansion. Please be aware, that the Devs have excluded the Rajani and the Uldum Accord from the buff.

Below is an image from Wowhead outlining all the factions available for the buff.

I have been somewhat slack on the Rustbolt Resistance reputation, so this is great news for me. Mechagon had just been released prior to my IRL issues, so I missed a great deal of the new content and found myself considerably behind the curve (so to speak) once I returned. This will help me push for the Revered essences, although the materials may be a pain to gather.

The new reputation buff will be of great interest to players still seeking their mounts from the paragon chests within Legion. I still have a ton to collect, so when I’ve finally caught up with the Rustbolt Resistance, I’ll be heading over to complete the Legion World Quests

In Before The Crash…

Before I dash, I just wanted to add, that the Gold Making has been incredible the last couple of days. I’m unsure whether it was a result of the weekend (increased amount of players), or maybe people panicked to get their last 120’s over the line, in preperation for the XP buff which should’ve finished today. Thankfully, this news today, means this resurgence to the economy, will continue. However, I feel with more people getting involved in the markets, prices will sadly crash. This is evident with the Uncanny Gear, down to around the 800g1500g mark. Only a few weeks ago, those pieces of gear were bouncing out of the Auction House around the 10k15k mark. Best to make the most of it, before it all crashes…

Anyway, I’m off to Mechagon, until next time…
