PTR patch 2.4 changes to Primal Nether and Primal Vortex?

Hey, interesting piece of news I heard last night…

Word is, on the PTR last night, they changed the Primal Nethers at the heroic vendor so they are Bind on Equip.

And they added Nether Vortex at the heroic vendor for 15 Badges of Justice, and 8 Gold, and made THEM Bind on Equip.

So yeah… that news should give you something to freak about… I know I’m thinking, for casuals, this rocks. And for those with those epic patterns that are tired of farming Nethers or Vortexes… this also rocks, since folks can now do Kara to get the Badges to get the Vortexes to provide all mats for the items they want made.

I’m sure someone, somewhere, will cry about it though.

But from our Guild discussion last night, what this does mostly is spur us on to want to run SSC even more, so we have recipes that can USE those Vortexes.

  1. Oh and BTW Surabear, I’m sure the one person you know that can make the belt of blasting… well… isn’t the only one. A person in my guild that you’ve probably never heard of can make both belt and boots (but isn’t currently raiding SSC). So I’m sure there are plenty more people out there.


  2. Finally! I’ve been wanting Primal Nethers to not be BoP for the longest time. It really hasn’t been fair to be running heroics for months, and never be able to roll on the 100-150g item at the end. Ever. And then to have to pay out for it when I wanted something crafted. (I’m alch/herb) This is excellent news!


  3. But… aren’t you guys too much a bunch of assholes to raid SSC? ;D I still get a kick out of that.Yay! I actually got a primal nether on my druid a while back because nobody, including me, had any crafting professions. It was weird. Anyway, now i can do something productive with it.All these patterns make me wonder whether maybe i should drop my gathering professions and level leatherworking and perhaps jewelcrafting. *ponder with skepticism* … I hate crafting. >:/


  4. There are going to be some OBSCENELY wealthy crafters on my server if this change holds. Namely, the ONE person known, at least alliance side, to posess the knowledge to make the Belt of Blasting. Sure, you can provide your own Vortex now, but the crafter still gets to charge whatever they want for a combine fee!On the plus side, I’ve been so lazy about my leatherworking that I have like half a dozen nethers sitting in my bank, waiting for people who need quivers/leg armors. I wonder what they’ll be worth on the open market (as in, I wonder if it will even be worth putting them on the AH).


  5. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa-aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa-aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa-aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa-Hoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo-ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo-ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo-ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!Ahem.I thinks this would be a good, imho.


  6. This is such a good change! The patterns that call for these mats still require a high end instance or raid, so this should really help people who are making things to sell or trying to find someone to make something with provided materials. The only people that I can think of offhand that might complain are those who want to corner the market on “Making [item], your mats my nether. 100g!”.This will likely make some hard to find items more available to those who aren’t in SSC and beyond, and will probably help people working on raiding get better gear via the AH or the trade channel.
