Double Legendary Acquisition

We were going to talk about this anyway, but a listener of the show, Zander, asked a two-parter question that we felt was appropriate to ask now. 

“Not sure how spoilery you guys want to get on the show but I would love to hear your take on the rep requirement for the ability to wear a second legendary. First off, Is Revered to high? I think it should be at Honored. I feel like it is something you should have at the beginning of the raid and from what I hear, it sounds like you won’t be able to get it until the raid has been out like 3 weeks. And that is if you don’t miss one day of rep. That is crappy in my opinion.

And secondly, is there an inherent problem with daily rep gains? I feel it leads to a big FOMO if you have to miss a couple of days. I know they only take 20-30 minutes but a lot of people can’t log on every day. Some people might have a lot of time to play but only on like 2-3 days a week. I wish there was something implemented that if you missed a few days you could make it up.”


Solo Shuffle Discussion

Desvin joined a Community Council discussion to talk about issues with the Solo Shuffle.

  • Early leaver penalties
  • Protection Paladins squaring off against each other rather than other tanks
  • Brawl used to test for further issues.
  • Brawl will be heavily incentivized to encourage testing.
