With weekly resets the week of February 14, we will remove the caps on the amounts of Conquest and Valor that can be earned and held by players. They will remain uncapped for the rest of Dragonflight Season 1.
As before, we like how in the early season, these caps reduce the feeling of being left behind for many players when it comes to PvP and Mythic+ gear. However, once several weeks have passed, we want to see players feel free to quickly gear up alts or return to the game after an absence and feel as though they can catch up quickly without hitting caps.
At the same time, I think it would be funny to see the complaints where someone hits 70 at the mid point of the 1st week of the season, queues for arena, and runs into someone with a full conquest set.
My thoughts on the conquest cap are that it should be removed when it would have allowed for the purchase of a full set of gear for 1 spec.
Would it be possible to do something like this for raiding as well? My fear is with this change on the horizon, a lot of folks may just decide to give up progressing on raiding because, once again, Mythic+ will become far and away the easiest way to get loot.
When that happened, SL raiding participation fell off a cliff… and honestly, I’m gonna have a hard time motivating myself to smash my face into H Raz again next week when I know I can just get about 100 more Mythic+ points, then spam +2s to my heart’s content for better rewards.
