Dissecting Archivist's Codex Improvements with Patch 9.1.5 - Faster Progress, Account-Wide Unlocks
19.09.2021 um 00:37
With the latest PTR build, Blizzard has added a number of improvements to the
reputation progress and its related rewards. These changes include faster progression through later ranks and a number of its rewards and unlocks being made account-wide.
Official PTR Notes
From Blizzard's development notes:
Archivists’ Codex Reputation
The Research Reports (item upgrades) and Treatise items (bonus drops in 9.0 content) are now available for purchase account wide if a character on their account has reached the appropriate reputation Tier.
Players at Tier 6 can now purchase the item “Research Report: Relic Examination Techniques”, a new bind-on-account item they can send to an alt to increase the reputation granted by Relics and Relic Fragments by 50%.
The quest “Relic Efficiency” offered at Tier 4 now also increases the average number of Relics that will show up as bonus drops from rares and treasures as well as how many relics show up on daily quests or in weekly reward chests. This is in addition to the current reward of a 20% chance to receive double the normal Relic Fragment drops from rares and treasures.
Added two new quests, “Relic Clues” at Tier 3 which starts the bonus at an initial 10% chance at double Relic Fragments, and “Relic Hunter” at Tier 5 that will set the final chance for double relics at 40%. Both of these new quests will also increase the average number of relics you will see as bonus drops, on daily quests or in weekly reward chests.
Developers’ note: We want to improve the experience on alts looking to gear up through Korthia by providing immediate access to the upgrade unlocks and a reputation increase if a player’s main character has reached Tier 6. We also understand that the end tiers of the reputation are taking longer than we intended, especially for players with limited play time or are not powerful enough yet to delve into the rifts on Korthia. To that end we have added the new quests at Tier 3 and 5 and adjusted the one at Tier 4 to increase the Relic count from the weekly and daily rewards. This along with their other bonus of increasing the Relic Fragment drops we hope will speed up everyone’s progress to restore the Archivists’ Codex.
Research Reports and Treatise Items Reputation Requirement Now Account-Wide
The first change is that now Research Reports and Treatise items reputation requirements are now account-wide. This means that once one character in your account reaches Tier 6 with Codex, any character will be able to purchase these items.
Items affected by this change:
Right now Research Reports to unlock Rank 5 and Rank 6 upgrades still require alts to reach Renown 61 and Renown 75 respectively, but that might be just a PTR bug since the notes mentioned "...providing immediate access to the upgrade unlocks if a player’s main character has reached Tier 6".
Unlocking the reputation by doing the initial questline starting with
is still currently required for Upgrading Korthian Armaments and purchasing Research Reports and Treatise items from
does not unlock upgrades to rank 5, so you need to buy both
for rank 6 items.
Since it unlocks
, this change makes so you can do the one-time relics unlocked by this research before its normal unlock which was Tier 5.
New Research Report - Increased Reputation Gains
One of the removed items from Patch 9.1 PTR, is making a return,
. This item is able to be purchased by characters that unlocked Tier 6 and can be send to any character in your account to increase their rate of acquiring relics. This effect is not account-wide and you need to send a Research Report to each character you want the effect on.
It costs 0
and only characters with Tier 6 unlocked can purchase it, it is not currently affected by the change that made other Research items unlocked to every character.
New Relic Efficiency Quests
Patch 9.1.5 adds new efficiency quests, on top of the already existing
for tier 4, for tiers 3 and 5. These new quests will provide similar effects, with increased 10% and 40% efficiencies instead. On top of this change, these quest now also increase the number of tokens received from daily and weekly quests as well.
For instance, while
on live servers rewards 5 tokens of 150 research each, while on PTR it rewards up to 7 or 8 with the 40% efficiency instead.
