*** Update *** The bar for the first week of raiding will be set at 20 artifact traits --- Going forward in Legion raiding, we have decided to implement a change to the way EP is rewarded that will be in effect for the foreseeable future. EP you receive will now be affected by the number of artifact traits you have acquired relative to the person in the raid with the highest number of traits using the following formula: EP = EP * (T / B) ...where T is the number of traits you have, and B is the bar we have set for artifact points. This caps at 100%. For example, if the bar is 20 and Kaustos has 20 artifact traits, Chugg has 22, and Zalvator has 6, then EP would be rewarded like so: Kaustos gets the max of 300 for a night. Chugg gets 300 also, because 22 / 20 >= 100% Zalvator would receive 90 EP for the full night, because 6 / 20 = 30% * 300 EP = 90 This change is intended to reward people who put in the effort to maximize their Artifact, something that is done outside of raid, because the Artifact will easily be the biggest bonus to your output this expansion and is not something that can be ignored.
