Mogu Rune of Fate – Lesser Charm Change

Community Manager
We’re deploying a hotfix late tonight that will reduce the number of Lesser Charms of Good Fortune required to purchase 3 Mogu Runes of Fate from 90 down to 50. Meaning when you log in Tuesday and purchase your 3 Mogu Runes of Fate, which are used for 5.2 raid boss bonus rolls, it will only cost you 50 Lesser Charms.

We recommend waiting until after the scheduled Tuesday maintenance to ensure this change has gone through before purchasing your Runes. Maintenance is currently scheduled to begin Tuesday, April 23, at 7:00 a.m. PDT.

We're almost there B.

Now dole out 5 Lesser Charms per Daily, and we'll be golden. ;)

Pretty sure a version of this already went live by accident, though it was broken. A guildmate of mine claimed two days ago to have turned in the quest on an alt for the cost of 50 Lesser Charms instead of 90. However, he was not granted the 3 Mogu Runes of Fate the quest should have given him despite the server deducting the 50 Lesser Charms from his currency tab and he was forced to submit a GM ticket.

Would have been nice to have a bit more of a heads-up regarding this, at least.

Like I posted 3 weeks ago, the 90 figure Blizzard set at MoP's release was too high. 50 is more of the sweet spot. You should be able to complete it in about 2 days worth of Golden Lotus dailies instead of 3-4 (or now, Thunder Isle Dailies, which reward 30 with phase 5).

Same thing goes for VP, which is approaching its sweet spot. That too, should be able to be knocked out within a couple of days. Takes about 3 days right now with LFR queuing, but heroic scenarios in 5.3 will be a lot more popular for organized VP capping than CMs were [yeah no one I know uses CMs to cap VP =(] and should bring that figure down to 2 days. I plan to get in on heroic scenarios for VP. That 150 VP Thunder Isle weekly is a huge help too.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

This makes farming them on alts (I have 2 raiding toons!) so much easier.

Seriously. I wish it was just a repeatable quest so those of us with a gazillion charms could actually make good use of them.

Have any ideas?

As somebody who starts every week with 0 lesser charms, I don't think there's many options/alternatives for lesser charms.

That's kind of the point though. We have so many I'll never have to do dailies on this character for them for a year. I can just focus on alts instead. These changes make it much easier for me to do my pet battles for mogu runes.

Define "Late Tonight". I still need to buy Mogu Runes for THIS week. (Been slacking on dailies.) How will we know if it's active or not? Will the quest actually say 50 instead of 90? Or would it still say 90 until after maintenance? I'd love to be able to get this week's for 50, then buy more tomorrow for 50.

Bashiok any chances you can let us get even more runes since the drop rate is so crap. I'd love to do more dailies and get more runes of Fate. I'm willing to do the work to get the lesser charms and trade it in for Runes.

I'm sure I'm not alone in this!

Probably when it's midnightish at Blizzard headquarters.

So to clarify for a guildy of mine, does that mean it's going live, or is this a ptr 5.3 hotfix?

This is really great news. I was thinking about shelving this alt because I just couldn't get 90 lessers on each of two characters ... but I'm pretty sure I can get 100 on two.

Thanks very much for making this change. :)
