Leveling in Shadowlands: Heirloom Bonus Overhaul, Experience Elixirs No Longer Work
Blizzard has detailed the overhaul to Heirloom and other experience bonuses in Shadowlands--their experience buffs will be replaced with other benefits.
Equipping heirloom armor will unlock six-piece set bonuses, with perks like increased out-of-combat regeneration and more rested experience. Blizzard will also be deprecating some valuable experience items like
, which increase experience gains by 300% and are highly prized by speedlevelers.
With the revamped leveling experience and level squish coming in Shadowlands, Blizzard felt that the process was faster and the experience gains from Heirlooms were no longer necessary.
Leading into Shadowlands, the leveling experience will undertake a complete rehaul – the current max level 120 will be squished down to level 50, a new introductory excursion that will teach you the fundamentals of the new character that you created, and a new starting experience that will allow you to select an expansion to level through and experience its full story.
Heirlooms and other experience gained bonuses were originally introduced as a quick fix for alts to not have to spend over 100 hours leveling. With the revamped leveling experience, you can look forward to reaching the new max level more than twice as fast than before. With the quicker leveling experience, the fundamental problem to the long leveling process has been solved and we found that the experience bonuses that come from Heirlooms were no longer necessary and instead, made the new leveling experience feel very awkward with the extra leveling speed.
We want to ensure that players' investment in these Heirlooms continues to offer unique benefits while leveling, so we're planning to replace the experience bonus on Heirlooms with unique Heirloom set bonuses.
(2) Set: Rested experience consumed is reduced by 30%.
(3) Set: Increases your out-of-combat regeneration in the outdoors, normal dungeons and battlegrounds.
(4) Set: Gaining a level triggers Burst of Knowledge, dealing Holy damage to nearby enemies and granting you 40% primary stat for 2 minutes. Defeating additional enemies extends this effect, up to 2 additional minutes.
(6) Set: Rested experience consumed is reduced by an additional 30%.
The new set bonus can be obtained from all Heirloom pieces except weapons and trinkets. Please keep in mind that the new Heirloom set bonuses are a work in progress and may have additional changes during the course of development and testing.
There are a few other experience bonus items that will also see changes due to the new leveling experience. Monks Peak of Serenity
buff will be changed to granting rested experience and
will become Poor quality and no longer usable. The
will still retain the 10% experience bonus but will now be capped at level 50.
We hope that you look forward to the new leveling changes that introduces a faster and more flexible leveling experience than ever before.
