Looms should be equal to grey items.

Don't stop there. A full set of looms should have stats so negative that they wrap around and cause you to heal whatever you attack and actually lose experience/gold for completing quests. And the heirloom mount causes you to move backwards

Have you been reading the ptr forums? You aren't that far off from what the "community" is publicly clamoring for there.

Yeah, the "new user" argument cracks me up.

The game is 13 years old ffs...are there still "new users" trying it out for the first time 13 years later? Sure, but they are vastly out numbered by those of us that have been playing off and on (or all 13 years) for years already. "New users" are few and far between at this point.

If there is an XP boost being offered in the cash shop, I don't think it takes much of a mathematician to figure out what the real "problem" of heirlooms actually is for Blizzard.

Overall these changes are mostly welcome, though I don't understand the Heirloom nerf nor do I see the need for two types of scaling for world mobs.

I guess we'll just see how it all plays out.

So the heirloom bonuses are being monetized?

Im seeing people on the official forums saying that it actually feels better now than live does for leveling so we'll see, but wether that means "better" in the sense that its a snails pace through old content consistently, or very little different overall than live

It has been that way in asia for a long time. They sell them in individually or in packs of 5. They give 100% countries for an hour.

So, if it is coming then, yes they have removed the heirloom do bonus and are now selling it to you.

It is now on the ptr, but some reports say that it has always been there as a glitch. We won't know until it goes live

In what way will making the game even more horrifying to get to your max level friend involve a better experience for new players?


Obviously not all new players are being grandfathered in by a max-level friend, but for someone who is, if it is so desperately important to play with their friend immediately, they should buy a boost, or the max-level friend should roll an alt with the new player.

Nobody new thinks playing through the game properly would be 'horrifying', that's a perspective of someone who's leveled way too many alts.

The leveling system in this game with pruning is so bad it is horrifying
