For a long time we had to be aware of new announcements about Patch 9.1.5. But now the developers at Blizzard have taken care of it after all. Even the biggest grind from Patch 9.1 will be significantly defused with the upcoming update. What is meant, of course, is the grinding of Cataloged researchto play up the reputation of the archivists’ code. This is extremely important in order to upgrade items as well as to get pedestals or media upgrades. So far there has been no help from Blizzards for this – every twink has to do exactly the same as the main character before – with patch 9.1.5 this will come to an end.

But if you have now hoped that the reputation and the resource will simply be unlocked account-wide, we will unfortunately have to disappoint you. Instead, there are some simplifications, new quests and at least a few things will be regulated account-wide in the future. Here is the official announcement in the latest patch notes:


Blizzard

  • Archivists’ Codex Reputation
    • The Research Reports (item upgrades) and Treatise items (bonus drops in 9.0 content) are now available for purchase account wide if a character on their account has reached the appropriate reputation Tier.
    • Players at Tier 6 can now purchase the item “Research Report: Relic Examination Techniques”, a new bind-on-account item they can send to an alt to increase the reputation granted by Relics and Relic Fragments by 50%.
    • The quest “Relic Efficiency” offered at Tier 4 now also increases the average number of Relics that will show up as bonus drops from rares and treasures as well as how many relics show up on daily quests or in weekly reward chests. This is in addition to the current reward of a 20% chance to receive double the normal Relic Fragment drops from rares and treasures.
    • Added two new quests, “Relic Clues” at Tier 3 which starts the bonus at an initial 10% chance at double Relic Fragments, and “Relic Hunter” at Tier 5 that will set the final chance for double relics at 40%. Both of these new quests will also increase the average number of relics you will see as bonus drops, on daily quests or in weekly reward chests.
      • Developers’ note: We want to improve the experience on alts looking to gear up through Korthia by providing immediate access to the upgrade unlocks and a reputation increase if a player’s main character has reached Tier 6. We also understand that the end tiers of the reputation are taking longer than we intended, especially for players with limited play time or are not powerful enough yet to delve into the rifts on Korthia. To that end we have added the new quests at Tier 3 and 5 and adjusted the one at Tier 4 to increase the Relic count from the weekly and daily rewards. This along with their other bonus of increasing the Relic Fragment drops we hope will speed up everyone’s progress to restore the Archivists’ Codex.

Unfortunately there is no German version of the patch notes yet. Hence the summary:

  • Most of the items sold to you by archivist Roh-Suir will soon be able to be sent across your account.
    • This also includes the investigation reports, thanks to which you can upgrade your Korthia equipment.

So in the future you no longer have to grind up your reputation in order to be able to upgrade your purchased tokens or found armor parts.
But all other items that help you to make faster progress with the archivist’s code or elsewhere are account-wide. For example the bonus items like treatise: The study of the anima and the use of every drop.

There are also a few new items that will only come into play with 9.1.5. This is how you can buy an item at reputation rank 6 and send it to your twinks:

This means that your twinks can get a reputation much faster – but that should hardly play a major role in 9.1.5. In addition, the item costs 2,500 Cataloged Research and must be purchased separately for each Twink.

New quests

There will also be new quests from Roh-Suir. These, too, aim to give you faster progress.

  • The existing quest Relic efficiency (Reputation rank 4 / grants you bonus relics for some enemies and boxes) now also increases the amount of relics that you get from quests and the weekly box.
  • The new quests Relic Clues (requires reputation rank 3) and Relic Hunter (requires reputation rank 5) give you a chance of 10 percent (first quest) to 40 percent (second quest) to get double the amount of relics.

With this, Blizzard wants to ensure that both twinks (who earn the reputation) and stragglers get enough cataloged research much faster,

How do you like the changes so far? Are you going far enough or would you prefer if the reputation and resources of all characters on an account were simply pooled?
