    Well met.

    Could you tell me if Reign of Shadows will have upgraded (increased) levels for the Advanced Adventure Writs? That would be SO great-

    Will there be overland quests? There's no mention; I'm a casual player, so Heroic instances & raids aren't useful for me.

    Anyway, thanks for the information :)

    Do we know yet if the bug is being fixed tomorrow for not having access to prior content with the pre-order? I have a second account I was playing around with but I'm stuck cause I haven't updated it in years so I cant access the other content.

    So you want to preorder Reign of Shadows?

    Thanks, but no thanks.

    And for the players that dont buy the expansion leave their AAs alone and dont ruin them like this expansion will.

    If Monks or Bruisers get a Gi appearance, I might just have to use the 120 booster on my already 120 just for the appearance.

    Thank you for the update! Has Beta been fixed yet? Last time I tried getting in, it was glitchy!

    when we upgrade, we'll still get all the stuff right in that tier range?

    Correct, the only item that wont be available from launch on is the preorder item. Until next year of course.

    The thing about the mount and merc is you get up to 40 free crates a month, and the amount of coins varies from 3 to 10, and if you are sub'ed you get double. With them upping the stats, it means you can just use the free crates for the coins and maybe get the item you want. Not saying it is ideal, but it is possible. (40 crates = 1 per day with Heritage Overseer quest, + the 500 SC 10 crates you can buy when your sub renews)

    Dreamweaver, I have boosted a character and noted it was 110 level as from the BoL starter chest.

    Since I boosted now, is the upgraded armor/gear not available to my character when the expansion goes live, or will there be a claimable box of 120 gear???

    Are you sure that infuser is going to increase stamina by the amount mentioned?
  18. Tanto Done, finished, gone.

    Each infusion layer has a cap at a certain % of the base value iirc. I don't know for sure, but I know this is why we were maxing out stamina infusion of BoL gear with CD infusers. Perhaps someone could chime in if they know the bonus layer has a cap and what it is?

    Are any of these claimable on Kaladim, and if so, do you know what the stats would be on them?
