This doesn’t feel right.

By all means, I’ll gladly take a quicker path to the next essence slot.

Glad to hear it, I was dreading having to grind levels to catch back up.

They REALLY have no idea what they are doing anymore. They’ve changed the values so many times now. Sure, any nerf is a benefit to the players but this just tells me that they absolutely had no idea how the system would play out over the course of two years, which means the system wasn’t even designed (let alone designed well) in the first place.

If you were at 50 in 8.1.5 does that mean you start 8.2 at almost 54?

Of course not. It just means instead of 50k to reach lvl 51, you only need 17,5k.

No this means that to get to 51 from 50 will only require 17.5k essence and so on. This is just a change to how much AP is required to level and how the artifact knowledge will amplify that. Similarly to when you get Artifact Knowledge it doesn’t work on Azerite retroactively gained

People care about AP this xpack? Even with the handful of traits in the 8.2 system, itu2019s still boring and not worth grinding out unless youu2019re a World Firster.

It was Blizz trying to make the massive loss of Artifacts easier on us and less time-consuming/interesting so we could do other stuff (see: the farce that is the War Effort table and no more BoA rep tokens). Obviously, they realized they had nothing else to offer, as Blizz is incapable of coming up with anything new anymore and wonu2019t even bother to steal ideas from other games that arenu2019t named Farmville. So now they have decided to try to drag out this half-assed Heart of Azeroth thing and see if they can stretch what minuscule interest there is in it to the end of the xpack.

No kidding. Grind the hell out of AP before they hotfix the bug…

Counterpoint: It’s an extremely adaptable system, and well designed because of it. Them knowing that they don’t know exactly how the system will play out over the course of two years let them design an adaptable system. It sounds like you have unrealistic expectations.

Should just scrap AP all together anyways, not a single person is a fan of this system and there was no reason to transfer it over from Legion.

It’s not a bug. This is modern blizz design. Create annoying grindy content that doesn’t mean anything, then in next content patch introduce massive catchup mechanic that lets new/returning players reach the same level that took weeks for active players to achieve.

You complained about it being too easy and too grindy in the same sentence. The levels of stupidity most of the playerbase has stooped too is absolutely mind blowing. You realize the nerf to the amount of AP going forwards not only has no bearing on the work you already did which you benefited from, but that you also dont have to push for those higher levels of AP to advance your neck. As it turns out noone is above 50 at all right now. Also please cry some more about gatekeeping players coming in late into the expac because thats the only way you can feel good about yourself or get an advantage, when you’re on an even playing field you get ^&*! on

Not at all surprised that there are people finding ways to complain about this.

Sorry I want to have a chance to play with different class and alts and without AK it’s much harder. Do you even understand the point of artifact knowledge?

They complain when it’s too easy…r

They complain when it takes too long…r

I’m starting to wonder if they just post because they like to complain…
