WoW Remix Adjustments and Improvements Coming Today

We have been monitoring the impact of the Gulp Frog farming that some players did during the first three days of WoW Remix. We’ve also been working on ways to respond to player feedback about Bronze acquisition, increased difficulty at higher levels, and feeling too far behind those who took advantage of the frogs.

A small number of players received an extreme advantage that has distorted the gameplay experience for some in WoW Remix. With hotfixes later today, May 24, we will adjust characters with an unreasonably large number of Gulp Frog kills prior to the loot bug fix, and those players will see the power of their Cloak of Infinite Potential reduced to an amount that a very engaged player could reasonably achieve. This change will have a larger impact on players who took advantage of the situation for longer.

For everyone that did not take advantage of the frog farming, we’re providing three additional quests with large Bronze rewards for reaching levels 50, 60, and 70. These quests will become available from Momentus the item upgrader at the Jade Forest Infinite Bazaar. These milestone quests will grant characters an additional 3,000, 7,000, and 30,000 Bronze, respectively. Level 70 Timerunners will be able to complete all three quests immediately for 40,000 additional Bronze when this change takes effect. Characters that killed an unreasonably large number of Gulp Frogs will not be eligible for these quests.

We believe these milestone quests and the additional Bronze they grant will make playing Remix more rewarding for primary and secondary characters for the duration of the event. Players may choose to use this Bronze to upgrade their gear or purchase cosmetic rewards at the Infinite Bazaar, depending on their personal goals for that character. These milestone quests will be available for all Timerunning characters that are leveled up for the duration of the event.

We will continue to monitor the gameplay landscape of Remix and make improvements as needed. Thank you for your feedback!

what about ensembles? like LFR Sha-skin robes being wrong? and multiple other sets in the bug forums? when will those get fixed? Can you at least say its being looked at? so people can continue to unlock rewards? or will this be another “ignored until 4 years later”

This is horribly tone deaf. Why can you not take the easy win and just slash upgrade costs by 90%, and then just double threads rewarded to everyone not flagged as a Frog Farmer? You are doing this in an overly convoluted and messy way that ultimately does nothing to improve the major areas of concern that the Frog Farmers have simply shined a spotlight on.

Edit: ALSO, there better be plans to fix the cloak not being 1:1 on alts. That is balata t false advertising.

8750 bronze per dungeon/scenario sounds about right.

Thank you for confirming that Frogs was NOT an exploit, because if it was, you would have banned them instead of just rolling it back.

EXCELLENT.

The prices are STILL TOO HIGH. I will literally use up this 40k bronze gift in 5 minutes.

This sounds great on paper, but rhe reality is that the cloak is fairly irrelevant. The 40k bronze bonus is nice, but it still pales in comparison to the 100s of thousands of bronze they farmed doing the gulp frogs. Rollong back the cloak has very little effect when the stats on it are 1/2 of what a maxed chest piece has.

I appreciate the effort, but rhe fundamental issue is still the ridiculous cost of upgrading gear and your bonus brings us just 1 step closer. Nice but ultimately meaningless as a one time reward.

And what about the alts cloak being 1:1 please make this so.

Before too much hemming and hawing happens in this thread, I’ll get in and say that honestly I’m satisfied with this communication as someone who was mostly interested in collecting stuff. That’s a nice batch of bronze for leveling a character. Still plays into the inevitable infographic at the end of Remix applauding how many Timerunners were created, but that doesn’t concern me all too much.

Could we get actual numbers on what you guys consider “reasonably large” and “achievable by a very engaged player”

Apparently never. But hey everyone! you can upgrade your weapon 4 times now or get 1 mount. Isn’t that just great…

Like seriously enough with your sugar coating and fancy wording etc. how hard is it for u to just lower bronze cost and increase bronze drops from all sources ??? THATS LITERALLY ALL WE ARE ASKING FOR

Or more than 10 mounts, depending on which ones you’re looking at. The most expensive mounts are all available outside of Remix, so anyone who already has them isn’t going to be buying ‘only one mount’.

But they get to keep their 556 gear that they acquired from all the bronze they gained as well? Yeah this doesn’t fix anything.

Part of the problem is that item upgrade costs are far too expensive. It takes over 500k Bronze to upgrade items from 346 to 556, which was the main reason people were farming.

Either make gear drop above that item level or nerf the upgrade costs.

No talk of rolling back the full sets of fully-upgraded gear those players have, odd. That’s definitely over half their power at this point, so the cloak rollback will be a drop in the bucket.
