<o =""></o><o =""></o>After DoD launched, we saw a lot of feedback from players that non-raid loot rewards weren’t appropriate for the difficulty of the content. Carefully evaluating the cases players brought up led us to audit the model that has been used for itemization for several expansions now. After a lot of evaluation on the potential impact, we decided to change the itemization model to bring single group gear closer to the level of raid attainable gear. Beyond providing more tangible upgrades in the expansion, this change should also have a number of positive effects on the game as a whole and is something we will continue to use when making items in the future.<o =""></o>

The changes are currently on test server and we are expecting them to go out to normal servers with the patch on November 16<sup>th</sup>.<o =""></o>
