Mage Tower

General Discussion
I wish blizzard would bring the mage tower back as a scaling timewalking event. Truly regret missing out on those transmogs.

I agree. To simply remove an xmog because it was attached to an event that they could have easily transitioned is something I'm rather salty about.

I hope they don't. Many of us pushed hard to get all we could done before the time line was up. I managed 24/36. It deludes the work of those who pushed hard for it to put it back into being able to be obtained. Like the MoP and Draenor challenge gear, it needs to stay unobtainable.

Sorry, but if you wanted it, you should have done the content then. They nerfed the mage tower three times before 8.0 went live. They even had a bug in one of the challenges that worked in our favor that they never fixed (Imp Mother).

But more importantly those challenges are designed and balanced around the specs as they are for that particular expansion. They're not going to waste time and money on updating old content like that.
I hope they create new expansion-limited solo challenges with all new rewards for us all to enjoy.

This.
If they brought back one challenge from a previous expansion, they’d have to bring back all the previous challenge modes and that’s just not happening.

A more realistic thing to happen is them continuing to create challenge modes each expansion with limited time rewards. Which works great imo
They shoved scaling down our throats for all aspects of the game.

Yet the one place where it would have felt more self-contained and optional....they determined .... "nah". It doesn't make sense there.

I don't think mage towers should have been removed. For the same reason I am glad they kept M+ appearances.

This is coming from someone who collected every appearance on every character.

It is something to do in your down time.

Its the reason I still run old raids for mogs/mounts. Why I have started to do PvP for old vicious mounts, despite not really liking PvP or current mogs.

Appearances are a popular motivator even for old content without the need to "rehash" every 8 months.

It's not about scaling. The challenges were designed around the artifacts and how classes played in Legion. They can't scale that. Some would be too easy, some would be impossible. Sucks that you missed out, but that's life. They have removed transmogs and mounts from old content before just because, it's not new.

If you want the reward, do the content in time.

Less qq. More pew pew.
No. It was a limited time thing. Wanted it? Then you should have got them when Legion was current.

You even had more than enough time to do it when they put the tower up until the end of legion and gave you a max artifact.

Yep. This in a nutshell. I completed all 36. I wanted them. I went in and I did them. Everyone else should have done the same if you wanted them.
I'm glad they removed it. Scaling can never capture how it was, too many talent/ability/stat changes from xpac to xpac. What I do hope though, is that they make new challenges of a similar nature going forward, with new, exclusive rewards.
They said from the day it was announced that the Mage Tower was a limited time event that would disappear when Legion was over. While there are plenty of valid criticisms to be leveled at Blizzard for other subjects, the Mage Tower is not one of them. They were perfectly and abundantly clear from the beginning that if you wanted the appearances you had to get them during the window of availability.

That window is now closed, and opening it again would be 100% wrong.
I managed 35/36 before Legion ended, couldn't bring myself to do the Sub rogue challenge. But I pushed for all the others because Blizzard stated from the get go that they would be removing the mage tower at the end of legion. They would have to rework all the encounters with all the squish/talent changes that happened, and I'd rather they spend that time developing current/future content.

No you're both wrong

Blizzard brings them back you'll then want the skins or try to beg them to make different color ones so that it wouldn't insult others who did the challenge at content

Then you'll want WoD ring back and MoP cloak

Not our fault you didn't get to do it at content
Nah..you had your chance.
Old stuff is gone, that's how it goes.

The actual content/experience being gone is a little sad, though. Those were some (most?) of the best solo challenges in the game for sure.

I didn't get a single mage tower xmog. I would LOVE to have some of them, but I simply did not want to spend the time and energy (I get mad at myself when I continually fail) doing it.

with that in mind, stop QQing.
Had your chance at the end the expac where you could straight up buy your bis legendaries to make them easier. If you couldn't get them after that then it's on you.

This.

Mage tower was fun though. Something similar in the future seems like a good idea.
