As the title suggests, the patch is now live, but even though i have a total of 357 levels accrued (according to the achievement tracker) i am unable to claim any of the portraits. There is an option on the progressions achievement to see the rewards, but nothing else.
They stated multiple times that it isn't effective retroactively. So start counting to 200 now.
It was clearly stated even in the patch notes that it is retroactive. But hey, i would love to see your "multiple times" proof/blue post etc.
Curious, so it is. I was wrong! After looking around, I found the Celestalon post detailing as much from the 29th. I must have misunderstood the initial postings, which seem to have been re-written a few times in the interim in the Patch 20.2 "Blue Post" on the homepage.
