Power Realized Achievement
It is an Artifact Achievement. I got it yesterday, I was striving for it. Not for the Achievement but for the trait after that.
Getting this “Power Realized” achieve didn’t resonate well with me because the final traits that I was filling in were super weak traits. Of course I saved the crummy ones for the end. The last ones that I accomplished with massive AP, mind you, were the tiny weak traits.
The next, however, is a huge 5% buff to all my things.
Ideally, the achievement would have and should have included this 5% buff. Then the Achievement would be a true reward. Maybe they were afraid we would not continue. This is called “paragon”, the traits after filling your Artifact.
In 7.2 we will get a bunch of new traits. I hope that they are “good” ones. WatcherDev in the recent interview said that they don’t know what they will do and said perhaps that they’d “refund our AP”. I would be sorely bummed if they took away the Paragon trait buffs.
Trait 35; Paragon 1
- +5% Damage – DPS bonus
- +5% Healing – Healer bonus
- +10% Armor – Tank Armor
- +5% Health
The next is only a one percent step taking you to 6%, then next is nothing; riding on the 6% then 7%. As you can see, it is slow going but there is nothing else to use the AP you’re gaining upon.
With 7.2 being easily 10 weeks away, I might be close to an overall 10% buff to all of my stuff. With higher gear levels, this will be significant except that everyone else will be on the same train.
Still, I don’t want a refund. Putting points into future traits like “2% speed buff after a successful kill for 10 seconds” (I made that up) will be a big step down from an over-all percentage buff.
