It seems like blizzard has decided on how they want to give us new content while waiting for the expansion. The new content comes in the form of limited time buffs to try and get us playing with the content we have on our mains or alts, or trying new things maybe.
We have had the increased valor buff. We currently have the black price buff. To my knowledge there have been no other buffs data mined so we can only guess this it is, this is all the new content we are going to get for now.
The real question is, what is next? Will they roll over and start from the beginning of their two buff cycle again and give us the valor buff once more next month or will they try to sneak something else in there.
I think it might be in the best interest of blizzard, and us of course, for blizzard to mix it up. We will not be getting any real content, but these buffs can work for what their intention is, to give us something to do, to take our minds off the content drought. Not like it really will, but it can serve as a distraction.
So why not give us some more buffs to play around with, more than just the valor one and the black price one. Rotate those for the last 2 weeks of each month and give us something else for the first two weeks of each month.
I can think of a few buffs that might get people more active in game and maybe even have them do something they have not done in a while or maybe never did.
So here are a few buffs I came up with off the top of my head that might make for a pleasant distraction from the content drought for some people.
[Knowledge of the Ancients]
Increase all experience gained from anything that would normally grant you experience by 20%.
[You've Got Personality]
Increase all reputation gains by 20%.
[Scent For Blood]
Increase honor and conquest gains by 100%.
Receive double the amount of items you normally would when using gathering professions and archeology.
[Aren't You The Lucky One]
When you defeat a boss you get a chance to use a lucky gold coin which will allow you to choose any one piece of loot off that bosses loot table. You only have one lucky gold coin per week so use it wisely.
[Honor of the Celestials]
Every time you defeat a celestial you get a buff that increases all stats by 10% for 6 hours on all your characters. This buff does not stack and persists through death. Killing a celestial while time is remaining will increase the buff to a maximum of 6 hours.
What idea for buffs can you come up with?
