For context:

With the recent annoucement that our Season 3 and 4 Tier gear going Legacy and being disabled upon pre-patch, I’d like to ask how are we going to get this seasons tier gear since we can only catalyst our seasonal gear into tier?

I’d also like to talk about the future of Cosmic Flux.

Currently, we have a TON of options on how to acquire Cosmic Flux and I think it’s in a good spot for the current version of the game. We get it from PVP, Raids, World Quests, Mythic+, World Boss, Weekly Quest, and Torghast. However, once Dragonflight comes out, I assume our only way of acquiring more Cosmic Flux is via World Quests in Zereth Mortis and the weekly.

Why would anyone want to get the tier gear when the tier bonus no longer works come prepatch?


People love transmog, and some people just love collecting gear to fill up that ATT Collection bar. I propose decreasing the amount needed to Catalyst gear into tier by half, while also doubling acquistion rate from ALL sources.

This will help ease the acquistion rate in Dragonflight and beyond as World Quests may be the only option to get Cosmic Flux, and the tier gear moving forward.

With the Dragonflight pre-expansion patch, the powers on the gear will be disabled. That’s the only change being made to that gear. You’ll still acquire that gear and upgrade it in the same ways in the future as you do today, and the Catalyst will remain in place as before.
