Titanforged in Raids and the End-Game Reward System in Legion - Mon, 27 Jun 2016 21:42:54 -0500 With LFR Emerald Nightmare raid testing over the weekend, several players noticed they were getting extremely good rewards--the ilvl of which rivaled gear from higher difficulties. Watcher weighs in on how the end-game reward system is shaped in Legion.
All gear has a base item level, and a diminishing chance to be a higher ilvl in increments of 5.
There is a max ilvl cap across all gear--around 850 for Legion launch, and going up to 895 for Nightmare.
The Legion Beta recently added special World Quest puzzles for the Kirin Tor of Dalaran. While most World Quests will send you to loot objects or kill NPCs in a certain area, Kirin Tor world quests have more creative objectives. These spawn very infrequently across zones, unlike other types of World Quests.
