[Rejected] Lowering arena rating requirement for tier 1 arena weapon

#1 » Post by Gnurg » 24 Oct 2016 10:04

Currently the tier 1 Wrathful weapon requires 1800 rating to purchase. This season 19 teams (unless someone dropped rating after having reached 1800 rating) made it past 1800 rating. Out of these teams, I only know that 3 of them did not have the weapon from before.

Unlike the Wrathful armor, there exist no Relentless counterpart (unless you got it from previous season), meaning you either have 0 or ~90 resilence compared to the ~80 or ~96 resilence from the armor.

With PvE having such a huge impact, it would help squishy players survive by having easier access to the WFT1 Wep, opening for other comps than awar/hpal.

My suggestion would be to lower the requirement. By how much, I am uncertain of, but I think 1500/1600 rating would be more reasonable. Please state what rating you think would be reasonable.

** this is a suggestion for next season.

Maybe instead of lowering the rating requirement for T1 weapons, I would, instead, add Relentless weapons for arena points but with no rating requirement.

However, this is for another topic, I guess.

Yeah, I thought about that as well. Problem is that it is supposed to serve as a legacy weapon, only obtainable by the 'great' gladiator of that season.

Vengeful Gladiator's items served the same purpose, but were eventually added for transmog purposes.

I wouldn't see a problem with adding Relentless weapons in a similar fashion, however, we would have to make sure that they require a sufficient amount of arena points in order for them to be obtained, otherwise they could be abused and choosed as entry level weapon for PvE raiding.

Placing them at the same price as the relentless armor (2-3 weeks of farming) would be more than expensive enough. They weapon would become obsolete in the PvE very quickly anyways. Either way, lets leave that for different a suggestion.

Anyone else got an opinion on the suggestion mentioned in the first post (WF T1 Wep down to 1500/1600 rating)? I would like to know if you're against this suggestion as well, better to have the idea shut down than leaving it without any feedback.

I think my shaman can only use the dagger. If there was a spell haste mace, I'd take it. :-)

Keep T1 weapons at 1800.

Make relentless weapons available and cost honor + arena points.

Also honestly Gnurg, the PvP on this server is just too low for the amount of effort you put in to try change it.

When clickers can get boosted to ~2k and full SM+STS+HC DBW warriors loses to clickers, there is a problem.

You can move this to rejected as there seems to be more interest in making the Relentless T1 Weapons purchasable, which would have the same effect at this suggestion.

I would prefer that second suggestion aswell. Rejecting as requested by OP.
