I’ve always wondered about AI and how it will actually shake out when we finally create a fully smart artificial mind. If movies are to be our guide, we’re not doing well.
It’s the queue. Let’s chat.
JALAMENOS THE SAVED
Setting up Windows 11… Microsoft is really aggressively blocking you from making Chrome the default browser now.
My Rogue and DH now only need three LFR bosses. So do I just kill the three and a single Great Vault item? Or up to five, which means two large vaults, but thins out the pool more?
If the LFR runs seem relatively solid, always kill more bosses. It’s pure gambling and has absolutely no basis other than that I like to kill bosses, but it also means a chance for every boss to drop something too.
JALAMENOS AGAIN BUT THIS TIME I ANSWER TO HIM INSTEAD OF A 2001 CLIP A SPACE ODYSSEY
Hmm, if Chromie Time is adjusted to work from 10-60 in Dragonflight, I wonder if they also adjust exp gain.
I only tried it once, in Draenor, and I got to 50 just as I entered Nagrand – but I had some minor exp boosts active, I’m not convinced you can squeeze out 10 more levels just in Nagrand once Dragonflight is out.
Chromie Time is set so if you have absolutely no XP boosts apart from resting in taverns/rest rooms you will reach 50 by the end of the available leveling content. So my Orc hit the high 40 and is almost done with Outland, for example. I believe it will in fact be realigned so you can turn 60 with it†
At least that’s the basis as Ion Hazzikostas laid them out in that interview. They’re going to rebalance Chromie Time so each expansion will take you from 10 to 60, and for a first time player it will go Exile’s Reach to BFA to the Dragon Isles, skipping the Shadowlands entirely.
I wanted to talk about the Hall of Fame Socialintroduced to keep track of the top 100 mythical boss kills for each faction. Socialinitially stated that this would help dictate when mythical cross-realm would open up. That when the first 100 Horde and 100 Alliance guilds killed the last boss on mythic, you could battle cross-realm. It also seemed hoped that maybe some of the 10X Horde guilds would switch factions to get Hall of Fame. At the time of writing, we are currently at 74 Horde guilds that have cleared mythical and 6 Alliance guilds. Will we see changes in the Hall of Fame with the upcoming cross-faction raiding? Has Hall of Fame passed?
I missed this question when I was doing the podcast email, so here it is instead.
I have no idea if they really thought Horde guilds would trade to Alliance, that definitely doesn’t seem to be the case. At least as far as guilds progress the fastest, the heist scene is completely dominated by Horde. I’m sure someone or several people have already theorized why that is – is it the general perception of players that one faction is superior? Is it the lemming effect, true, because top raiding guilds skew Horde, other guilds follow them? Is it a legitimate mechanical advantage of specific breeds? I don’t know.
Since only 9 Alliance guilds have completed the same content as 100 Horde guilds, I’m wondering, are there many more Horde players in general? More of them involved in robberies with their guilds? Have players either give up the Alliance and go to Horde, or have the Alliance favor players who just left Wow all for games like FFXIV who by the way have no faction conflict Wow is doing? Again, I have no answers for this. But I think it’s a pretty telling situation, and I think it’s outdated at this point to associate cross-server Mythic raid grouping with the Hall of Fame, especially with cross-faction grouping for friends coming up.
Okay, that’s the queue for today. See you next week I hope.
