Bug/Glitch in 'upgrade level' assumption
Return to board index
Like many players, including myself, it seems Wowhead staff assumed that the 'upgrading fee' of weapons was solely dependent on their rarity; with epics being upgraded with VP/Conq and rares being upgraded with JP/Honor.
It seems, however, that this isn't so. Case-in-point:
Ka'eng, Breath of the Shadow
. Wowhead says this has two upgrade levels (upgraded with 750 VP each for +8 ilvls in total), and while this was also my first assumption, it isn't true. Proof:
I also went to the upgrader and they verified: 1500 JP for +8 item levels.
I assume it's because it comes out of a heroic that it's upgraded with JP, but either way I suppose it isn't as clean-cut as Epic = VP/Conq. Either that, or I guess we're looking at a bug in WoW's system at the moment.
I think this is a glitch on Blizzard's part and I'll see if I can bring it to their attention for a hotfix. The official patch notes (
) do make it seem that all epic PvE gear should be upgraded twice:
Rare quality PvE gear costs 1500 Justice Points to upgrade once for 8 item levels, while Epic quality PvE gear costs 750 Valor Points for 4 item levels and can be upgraded twice.
Rare quality PvP gear costs 1500 Honor Points to upgrade once for 8 item levels, while Epic quality PvP gear costs 750 Conquest Points for 4 item levels and can be upgraded twice.
I can also confirm that Headmaster's Will is also 1500 justice points for 8 item levels, but is listed as 2 upgrades for 750 Valor on Wowhead. I posted a reply on the Headmaster Will's page but figured I'd come in and also verify that this is an issue.
