    To confirm, there are huge Ilvl bumps coming, tbc buffs are about 4 ilvls for normal dungeons (@70) and 14 for epics, with mgt heroic being + 15 ilvls and kael thas being + 16. I went and did most of the argent vanguard quests out in northrend and found at 70 that the quest items do scale up in Ilvl if obtained after this patch. Northrend dungeons also gained a 4 Ilvl bonus for rare items and + 10 to epic. I can report in more detail later today, but as of now that’s what I’ve found. And even if this was findings at 70, this will still effect 79s and just wanting to make aware

    When you say "after this patch", do you mean that people who do/did the quests before 8.1.5 are out of luck? The northrend quest greens I use on several twinks didn't change when I transferred them to the PTR.

    You have to obtain them after the upcoming patch to notice any change in them yes. I may be swapping factions on some toons just to re do these quests if this sticks when it goes live just to get them lol

    Yeah big changes are coming if 8.1.5 goes live as it apparently is. 79s will have access to mastery gems (cata gems need 102 ilvl for rare, 104 for epic), 70s might find dungeon gear better than SWP gear, 79s will no longer be able to use weapon enhancements (max ilvl 100 for oils/sharp/weightstones), the currently crap epic gear from Pit of Saron/Halls of Reflection/Forge of Souls may actually be good, ToC gear will be outstanding, TBC heroic dungeon gear might be competitive. All in all exciting stuff.

    do you mean they have access AND mastery is now a usable stat for lvl79 ? the cata blues gears have mastery stats on them, but if a lvl78 use it, it is a useless stat .. so mastery is gonna be a usable stat even for lvl79 now ? mastery currently only have effects on characters that are lvl80 or higher

    You’re wrong, anything that can heal can use it.

    I mean that you'll have the flexibility to gem mastery, if you so desire. I can't think of many classes that will benefit from it much, but e.g. resto shaman mastery is pretty nice. More options is always a good thing, it's a bit boring to have everyone gear/gem the same way :)

    Actually not all healing spells charge it. E.g. the Mistweaver heal pvp talent Healing Surge does not.

    that is not what i said, "any class that can heal can use it", ill go ahead and change what i said since it was also wrong to specific classes, all specs of monk can proc and use it, all specs of druid can use it, all specs of priest can use it, just wanted to add this since saying on healer classes can use it is inaccurate, hope this helps.

    You should be fine unless 70-79 works differently than the other levels I've looked at (19-49, 80, 99). Gear from after 7.3.5 will get the ilevel boost. Judging by my 80, greens just aren't changing at all in that level range. New quest reward greens on PTR are the same as the ones I already have (ilevel 99 at 80). My 80's dungeon blues go up to 105, dungeon epics to 111, heroic dungeon epics to 113, all from 100 on live.

    Oh man, this is disappointing to hear -- all that quest gear grandfathered with lesser stats.

    Are you sure about your info? I just did the questline for https://www.wowhead.com/item=38240/staff-of-the-purposeful-mendicant a few weeks ago at 59, and when I copy over to the PTR it scales up to the new ilvl just fine. Am I thinking of a different Argent Vanguard?

    edit- nevermind… I was. :confused:

    If you mean because of the sharpening stones/oils, I doubt it. Maybe for casters who have a few good quest green options. We'll see.

    Great guide, thanks so much! Following this closely on my mage currently!

    Are you able to confirm that all head enchants have been removed from the game? I see a few 79 twinks on XPoff that may have G-fathered their 15 stam / 17 resil head enchantments from previous expansions.

    PS: my mage is 79.

    Cheers!

    Chris.

    Happy you're finding it useful! To the best of my knowledge, head enchants are not currently obtainable.

    Even the ones that sat in banks unused, the head option got removed. At least the ZG ones.

    Can I follow this as a 70 or would a level 70 not receive the sockets from those bosses?
