Love or hate the Garrison feature in the latest World of Warcraft expansion, the Warlords of Draenor, you probably weren’t ever too keen on naval missions. Sometimes buggy, always unpredictable, you could lose your ships even when chances of a win are close to 100%, most of missions would simply give XP and little other stuff worth investing efforts for. Come to think of it, most of my follower missions now work at the same principle, and I don’t know what to do with all of that XP, I’d rather have some special, rare missions!
Well the new hotifx – not update, mind you – which is not scheduled yet, merely announced, will bring some long overdue fixes to naval missions. Check it out – it should improve things a bit!
Rare naval missions should now appear more frequently.
Increasing the chance of success on a naval mission will now also decrease the chance a ship will be destroyed on failure. If the mission success chance is at or above 90%, no ships will be lost on the mission.
Naval blockade missions now have a shorter duration of 30 minutes (down from 4 hours), reduced Oil cost to 50 (down from 100), and increased the amount of time before a naval blockade returns to 7 days (up from 5 days).
Ships and Crews
Increased success chance bonus on missions provided by a Human Crew by 50%.
Increased success chance bonus on missions provided by a Pandaren Crew by 33% and the bonus will now apply to Missions that are 12 hours or longer (was 18 hours or longer).
Significantly increased the effectiveness and bonuses provided by Naval Equipment items by 100%.
The Alliance Conquest Quartermaster, Holly McTilla should now correctly offer Warmongering Gladiator’s Medallion of Adaptation for sale and the Horde Conquest Quartermaster, Malukah Lightsong should now correctly offer Warmongering Gladiator’s Medallion of Cruelty for sale.
