Loot Tables Changes
We'll be testing out a new loot table with Tier 7. We're aiming to remove some of the rng from them, mainly the weapons. If this change works then we'll use this method in future raids as well as update older raids with it.
The general rate of earning gear will be drastically lowered. As Tier 7 is new content and endgame content, there should be a grind to earning and upgrading your armor. Since we allow unlimited reseting of instances we have to seek other methods to stimulate the gearing process.
Models on Gear
We'll no longer be adding models to tier/donor gear. Instead we will periodically release new Xmog tokens you can purchase with transmog badges, Gold Coins, Silver Coins, and/or Event tokens. Adding models to gear has been rather pointless when you can just change them to whatever model you prefer using the Transmog system. Since we want to include new updates with transmogs, we'll be using this method from now on to release any new models.
Tier 7 Daily
We'll release a daily quest for finishing Tier 7 at a later date, this will include all instances as well. We're delaying this because we want to see how the recent changes to gearing effect the player base as it will decide on what the quest will reward.
Tier 1 Rework
We'll be changing Tier 1 over the next week or two. The instance will be like an extension to the questing zone. As we create newer tiers, old tiers will be converted into soloable content. This is being done so we don't have lesser tiers requiring full groups for newer characters to earn their gear and slowing down their gearing process.
With Tier 7 done we can now focus a little more on class changes. A lot of classes need buffs and nerfs and we'll now have more time to sit down and work on them.
We'll keep making more questing zones for each tier. Expect tier 3 and 4 over the next few months. Holidays will be factored in for these projects so we cannot say exactly when they'll be finished.
Remember, Garrosh did nothing wrong in MoP!
