    There are people intentionally running high keys to fail them to raise their IO score, though. Not because it's fun, or because the loot is better, but because they want to inflate a score that has absolutely no relevance on anything at all in or outside of the game.

    It has relevance to getting into a pug m+ in a decent timeline as a dps. That is to say applying and getting into one in 1 - 3 groups applied into vs getting into one after applying to dozens of groups that reject or time out before getting into one.

    I am not sure that happens to people who are at the level these people are. This isn't people at 1000 or even 1300, it's people who are just waving their rio score around like a dick, it seems.

    For the sake of numbers -- the highest-value out-of-time +23 key was this run by Safenko, which was worth 302.4 score. This is less RIO score than the lowest-valued in-time +22 key, which was this run also by Safenko and worth 314 score (and the instance doesn't influence RIO score, it's all percentage-of-time based. there's a timed freehold within 0.1 score of that run).

    Scuffing keys is heavily punished in the RIO scoring algorithm, it's not a thing.

    zeny what's up did you betray us again

    I didn't betray anybody. Im just really into RP and i've decided to abstain from the war in order to not help sylv-

    pffffffft.

    No i've actually just not given much of a shit about WoW for a while. I had a lot of real-life stuff piling up and then also I started to play a lot more other games and went "hey do I really care about resubbing? ... nope!"

    I do this a lot, that is take hiatuses from mmo's and then stumble back in months later. I get super burnt out otherwise.

    So "yes I betrayed you" then? Cool

    A betrayal would suggest I was on your side in the first place. When have I ever been on your side in anything zekkan.

    I still need to get exalted with Zandalar Empire, so I guess I'm trolling every ZE world quest I can find for the next 12 days.

    ok so if I understand conquest rewards right THIS week is a shield OR a back BUT I can hold my conquest to next week if I want to wait because those rewards are useless?? right?? and the way you see this is find the blog post and count forward weeks?

    Unless they've changed a thing, failing to get the conquest reward for this week will mean you'll still have it as your reward next week. It just builds and builds and builds a backlog of rewards you need to earn.

    Dumb question, but I can't seem to find an answer anywhere: Do you need to be exalted with Zandalari and have completed the War campaign on the same character?

    Also, I may not make the raid tonight due to work. I might be able to show up for the first hour or so, still not sure.

  • BucketmanBucketman Call me SkraggRegistered User regular
    I believe you just need the Zandalari exalted achievement. At least that seems to be reddit's assessment.

    Thawmus
  • DysDys Registered User regular
    They've also said that you need to complete the war campaign up to a certain point.

    On the same character as the exalted rep? Not sure, but I'd expect that to be the case.

    Rep isn't account-wide, so having two parts of the checklist done across different characters does not seem like it would work.

  • ThawmusThawmus Registered User regular

    To play it safe I'd work with whichever character is closest or has already achieved Exalted status and do the war campaign quests with that toon. It'd take you maybe 2 hours, tops, to bang those out.

    so basically I should just turn this thing in asap

    Nominal raid start is at 8 central. People start prepping and assembling 5-10 minutes before then.

    Raid talents, raid azerite, bonus rolls, personal food, etc

    it doesn't matter, if you hit the conquest cap for a week and you're caught up with the rewards, you won't start getting progress until next week until... next week

    unless you're behind, in which case you just keep rolling through all the rewards until you've caught up

    Hmm, I may have to just wait until I have a toon on Cho'gall. I don't like bugging random people, begging for an invite to a raid for a guild I'm not in (yet) . I'm too shy for that, apparently. Just sat here hoping for one, but I know I need to just ask for one, but can't manage to do it. Weird. Brains are fucking weird.

    I've narrowed it down to ElvUI. If I have it enabled when I start the client, voice chat server unavailable. If I start up the client with ElvUI disabled, everything works fine. I can even enable ElvUI and reload the UI afterward, and voice chat will still function. But if I restart the client with ElvUI still enabled, voice chat server unavailable.

    What the fuck would ElvUI have to do with any of that?? Jesus, all I ask it to do is make my screen pretty.

    Looks like it's been reported on the ElvUI forums so I'm not alone.

    Its alright. Seems disabling Elvui during login, and re-enabling it post-login gets around the issue so I at least have a path forward.

    I forgot to ask zau before he left the m+ but is that stupid paladin ret sheild that absorbs then explodes damage pve or a pvp talent?

    I only ask cause I think I saw it during the raid and thought to my self "damn that is a sweet button if its pve as well"

    and its not divine sheild, I dunno what it is but it owned me alot until I stopped hitting ret paladins with it on

    Shield of Vengeance, baseline ret spell. It's real good!

    its also stupid in that its a dps increase if you deliberately stand in poop and bomb the boss on cooldown but also its a good defensive
