More changes in Patch 5.4.8

item upgades

When we first wrote about Patch 5.4.8 we told you about Changes to Black Prince reputation and Sigils drop rate and now a few more things were revealed to us.

First, the patch 5.4.8 will allow us to upgrade items two more time. This means that we an upgraded item will change from 2/2 to 2/4 when the patch hits. That will increase every player’s gear iLevel and obviously making all the encounters easier. More details about the upgrades are found in the blue post below.

But there is more… Garrosh’s Heirlooms are going to be buffed with +8 iLvl since we can not upgrade them. Keep mind that this is not the only change regarding those BoA weapons.

Patch 5.4.8 will also introduce a way to convert the 3000 Timeless Coins into 100 Valor points. We will be able to buy a token for that from Mistweaver Ai.

Gear changes are coming! First, in Patch 5.4.8 (which is currently in testing on the PTR), all upgradable epic items introduced to the game in Patch 5.4 will be given the option to upgrade 2 more times for a grand total of 16 item levels. This change will be applied to all items found on the Timeless Isle and in Siege of Orgrimmar. For instance, if you have an item level 553 Greatsword of Pride’s Fall and its Upgrade Level is 2/2 making it item level 561, once the new patch goes live it will display 2/4 and allow you the opportunity to bump it up to item level 569. Whether you’re working on a newly boosted character or progressing through Siege of Orgrimmar, we hope this change will provide you with the extra punch you need to take down your foes.

Second, we are also adding a new token called Deeds of Valor which will cost 3000 Timeless Coins, and can be used to grant your character 100 Valor Points. Players who wish to purchase the new token can do so by visiting Mistweaver Ai on the Timeless Isle next to the Celestial Court. Keep in mind, these tokens won’t allow you to go above the current weekly cap on Valor, but they do provide you an extra option to gain the points you may need so you can upgrade your gear.
Thanks everyone for your feedback, we will be bumping up the ilvl of all Garrosh Heirlooms by +8 in 5.4.8, since they are not upgradeable with Valor. The intent of the 5.4.8 VP upgrade change is to let people continue to progress, and we don’t want those who are using one of the Garrosh BoA weapons as their primary weapon to feel like they need to go get a brand new weapon due to this change.
Yes, legendary cloaks will receive the ability to upgrade two more times, but they will not be auto-upgraded.
