Lesser charms nerf?

Postby Beardydan » October 15th, 2014, 11:37 am

So far today I've done the Celestial Tourny, Dos Ryga, Kafi, Earth & Air spirits and Yon. 0 Lesser charms that wernt quest rewards.
Anyone else not getting them from Trainer/Fable battles.
Not checked wild pets yet either.

Add Burning, seeker & ti'un to the no charms list.


Also were the beasts of fable allways lvl 24, I'm sure i remember them being 25's and Pet biscuits & Mini-Treats are Boa Now?

I thought the BoF were all lvl25 too.

I thought the biscuits and mini treats were BoA before?

The treats were already BoA. I've mailed them cross servers and cross faction before.

The treats/biscuits weren't always BOA, and the BoF were definitely Level 25 before! I haven't done them all yet since the patch, but Lucky Yi is down to Level 23. :shock:

They definitly did a ninja nerf on lesser charms drops down to not giving any at all. I simply do not get why they could not have waited with that move until the release of WoD. They pretty much made getting lesser charms for upgrades a kill grind - or a hunt for unrewarding repeatable quests :cry:

They might be planning on introducing a new form of currency to replace the lesser charms. They do tend to do that but you don't get them until the expac hits.

Ok, thought I'd add my findings to this.

Today I did the Pandaria loop to level a pet; Hyuna, Whispering, Yon, Fire Spirit, Zuushi, Water Spirit. I received 2 lesser charms from each battle and ended up with one stone and a water spirit. My pet did not regain full HP at each level though.

I guess I just don't spend my lessers like some of you do. My main has just short of 12000 lesser charms.

well yeah its easy with 12,000 to sit there content with how it is

the problem is battles with wild pets would give 5-6 a battle. now we get ZERO. or two from a trainer. that makes it so none of us will be able to really get a lot of them.

I had a couple thousand, and have gone through them quickly, have 1k left, and just based off not getting them in wild pet battles, I will be running out very quickly into expansion if they don't introduce a new "charm" or currency.

There is a new pet currency in the xpac (I forget the name off-hand, "Pet Charms" maybe?), and I bet the reason they made the change to the lesser charms drop rate was because now they are used for upgrading gear at your faction shrine (50 lesser charms per upgrade, instead of 250 valor points). Now people will have to do dailies to get their charms for gear upgrades - assuming there will be any reason to upgrade Pandaria-level gear once WoD lands (which there really wont be, except for twinks, if anyone even bothers with that anymore).

The drop rate on charms for bet battle was a bit silly to be honest, they now drop a lot more from PvE kills though. Farming timeless isle can net you about 500 an hour.

See now, this is interesting! I didn't know that you could use them to upgrade gear! Thanks for letting me know!

Oh yes, I spent around 2k upgrading everything I hadn't before I stopped playing 8+ months ago, and still had > 10k left over...
