TOPIC: Having to do anything to earn it

Having to do anything to earn it 2 months 1 week ago #23217

One common source for this overpowered gear was from the weekly Mythic+ chest that players can find in their headquarters. Mythic+ dungeons have scaling difficulty levels and each week offer a powerful piece of gear that is dependent on your toughest completed Mythic+ dungeon. A Mythic+2 dungeon, for example, Gold in WoW Classic is pretty easy to complete but also rewards relatively weak gear. A Mythic+10 dungeon, on the other hand, rewards much more powerful gear.

Now that Battle for Azeroth's Mythic+ dungeons are available, next Tuesday players will be able to open their chest and get some shiny new loot. But this bug gave players who did Mythic+ dungeons during the final week of Legion a chest which they could open today.

The problem is that if you completed a Legion Mythic+10 dungeon before Battle for Azeroth launched, the bug made it possible to receive powered up gear as if you had completed a Battle for Azeroth Mythic+10 dungeon instead. The result is players were given insanely strong gear without having to do anything to earn it.On Reddit, players have shared screenshots of some of the gear they've received which is typically around the range of item level 385 to 400. That's a big jump up from the item level 340 to 355 gear most hardcore players have currently.

Players are understandably furious. Those who didn't log in this morning (or didn't do the required Legion activities back in August to trigger this bug) are left behind while others are now rocking god-tier armor and weapons that can't be matched. A bug like this seriously undermines all the time players have been investing to acquire the best loot since Battle for Azeroth launched.

With the new raid releasing today, this imbalance also threatens the fairness of the race that guilds compete in to see who can beat the raid first. Those who were lucky enough to earn some of this overpowered gear are undoubtedly going to have an edge over the competition Buy WoW Classic Gold."Very few situations warrant a rollback but this is absolutely one of them," wrote one Redditor. "The integrity of all server first races is completely shot, and this is a massive advantage for world first races (which have real world implications with sponsors and streams) to those who were able to exploit these bugs."
