  • 1. 550 Challenge Solution
  • 2. The 550 Challenge • Select a character from Inevitable Betrayal • Based on their current item level, devise a strategy on what they need to do to get to a 550 average item level
  • 3. Average Item Level • Shown as two numbers on your character sheet : Equipped / In bags
  • 4. Average Item Level • The average item level of all 16 gear slots – 2 hand weapons count as 2 slots.
  • 5. 1 7 2 8 3 9 4 10 5 11 12 13 15 6 16 14
  • 6. Slots Slot # 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Items Helm Neck Shoulder Cloak Chest Wrist Gloves Waist Slot # 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 Items Legs Feet Ring 1 Ring 2 Trinket 1 Trinket 2 Main Hand Off hand
  • 7. The 550 Challenge • My method: – Backwards by design: • 550 average for 16 slots • 550 X 16 = 8,800 • So, looking to get as close to 8,800 as possible
  • 8. The 550 Challenge • Remember: – Gear item levels & upgrades have a cost Item Level Source Upgrades to Upgrade Cost 528 Siege of Orgrimmar LFR 536 500 VP 535 Timeless Isle Token + Burden of Eternity 543 500 VP 540 Siege of Orgrimmar Flex 548 500 VP 553 Siege of Orgrimmar Normal 561 500 VP 553 Crafted Belt and pants 561 500 VP 553 Tier hands and Legs from Celestials 561 500 VP
  • 9. The 550 Challenge • Constraints: – Limited to earning only 1,000 VP each week. – Gear drops are all random – Celestials have a chance to drop 553 gear, but only have one chance each week – Can get a bonus roll by getting Warforged Seals (weekly quest from Elder Liao - Collect 50 Lesser Charm of Good Fortune), but limited to 3 each week.
  • 10. The 550 Challenge • Constraints: – Crafters can make 553 Belts and Pants, However • Takes 21 days to make the mats for the Belt • Takes 28 days to make the mats for the Pants – Legendary Cloak with a 600 Item Level can be earned ; however it takes time (lots of it) • Exalted with Black Prince

  • 21. My recommendation Do the run for the Legendary cloak • Cloak strategy is more about time than luck and is more flexible • Guaranteed a cloak, if you put in the time • Either way requires lots of time, patience and luck.
