Developer Update

In the 1st developer update since announcing the delay, the team has outline a few objectives that will be available to test in future builds

Conduit Confusion

After detailing the way conduits work in an article last week, the team is making several changes to the conduit system.

  • No longer a weekly lockout and will instead use a charge base system
  • Each change of a conduit uses 1 charge and you get a new charge each day
  • Adding an upgraded conduit to your library also provides a charge
  • All soulbinds have been revised to have 2 potency conduits only
  • Aiming to make the system less punishing to multispec players and players changing loadouts between various content
    • Joce’s two cents… Seems to me like there was a much easier solution than giving us another currency to track, even if it’s earned automatically. A weekly lockout on changes would have been fine, if soulbinds were spec specific. This is the same thing we wanted with Azerite Armor. Just let us have it ffs.
