wow Kirin Tor World Quests Hotfix

14 posts in this topic

It happened with Suramar World Quests in the past and now the issue is back with the Kirin Tor. Players were unable to complete The Kirin Tor of Dalaran to get their Kirin Tor ChestKirin Tor Chest given the few quest spawns and Blizzard has deployed a hotfix that resolves this issue. All you need to do is log in and get your chest.

This is just a temporary solution to the problem and once Kirin Tor World Quests are back, the team wants to make sure that enough quests are up to get the emissary chest.

I would appreciate a hotfix that removed the 'like the wind' quests. Horrible horrible stuff.

Haven't done it and went and had a look at it

So... essentially they introduced a world quest in which you can actually die in?

I am trying to see how this is a bad thing? ^^'

Ive completed both the Suramar and Azsuna "Like the Wind" world quests on 3 toons, and had done the Azsuna one a few days prior, and having said that, while it's certainly quite tedious and frustrating to get a handle on it and complete it the first time, I can assure you that all that trial and error pays off as the next time you encounter that world quest, it will be nowhere near as intimidating.

 

And because I'm all too aware that my enjoyment of these quests is a rarity among players, I can offer two tips that made the ordeal far less painless for myself:

1) Zoom your camera into very-close 3rd-person (or even 1st person); that way, you have a much more precise notion of exactly where your toon is at in case you find you need to fall into a sphere.

2) Hold down your right mouse button throughout the entire exercise. Doing so will cause your character to face the exact direction that the camera is facing, making it easier to aim your dash into a sphere.

And also, just keep in mind, while the quest is extremely fast-paced, the hardest part is getting into the proper groove to sail thru the route, but one you've got it down, it starts feeling surprisingly simple...

Oh and as for the prospect of falling to your death while failing, that happened to me once on the Suramar version several days back, but today I fell in the same area and hit the ground but rather than dying, my life dropped to 1, I was instantly ported back to the top of the waterfall, and my gear did not incur the 10% durability damage that comes with death... So I dunno.

In any case, I hope this helps some folks out in the future.

Couldnt agree more, but sometimes the issue was latency... you know those with horrible latency will be having hard times finishing these kind of wq...

a good game will see what other games are doing and may implement similar content, why in the hell the jump quests from maplestory seemed like a good idea is beyond me. those were bloody awful. especially the boosting mechanic and trying to orientate yourself in 3D space. i did what i could find but not without extreme amounts of profanity. those new WQ are just awful.

I personally liked those quests. 

Considering the other ones are so ridiculously easy...  Besides - its completely new territory for WOW in general, other than maybe the Havoc Hidden appearance fight?  Kael'thas, how many expansions ago...  Vortex Pinnacle...?

But even those are... vague comparisons.

That might have been my problem, I had PTSD flashbacks to MS while doing them. Vanilla was so unforgiving and if you wanted your pink flowered earrings you had to suffer for hours!!! Was even worse on the mobile games XD.

Hey, I don't blame you tbh. I think those are fair things to have bad flashbacks to! :p

Seems odd that the Nightfallen would get the least amount of reputation from the Kirin Tor emissary. Story-wise they are the most important to get to exalted.

I believe this was due to the fact that they wanted to ensure it stayed gated for long enough at the start of the expansion. Perhaps we'll see an increase to the 1500 on their token in the future since it doesn't really matter anymore.

Makes sense. Now they are just adding things each week as far as the questline is concerned.

Yeah, this was probably the better approach. I would expect that they thought people would then complain that there wasn't enough to do, whereas this way they could simply say "It's there, you just need to farm the rep!"

      A guide that focuses on gold gain "on the go", no tedious tasks required.
      Highlights
      All materials sell fast No need to check out crafting value vs. profit You make gold "on the way" engaging in a wide variety of activities that don't focus on gold making, such as World Quests or Glory of the Legion Hero. Blood of Sargeras
      Get Boon of the Bloodhunter. It gives a lot of extra bloods. You will notice Bloodhunter's Quarry dropping from enemies. It will contain anywhere from 1-5 Bloods of Sargeras. Engage in content that gives you a lot of bloods, the best are Mythic+0 dungeons. After having acquired enough bloods at the end of the day, visit this website to determine the most recent gold value of Blood of Sargeras. On most servers, you will get the maximum value from Potion of Prolonged Power, but we'll be focusing on raw materials. Find Illnea Bloodthorn in Dalaran. If you found which item has the most value, create a macro depending on the item you'd like to buy: /run BuyMerchantItem(1) - Order Resources Cache /run BuyMerchantItem(2) - Lean Shank /run BuyMerchantItem(3) - Fatty Bearsteak /run BuyMerchantItem(4) - Big Gamy Ribs /run BuyMerchantItem(5) - Leyblood /run BuyMerchantItem(6) - Wildfowl Egg /run BuyMerchantItem(7) - Cursed Queenfish /run BuyMerchantItem(8) - Mossgill Perch /run BuyMerchantItem(9) - Highmountain Salmon /run BuyMerchantItem(10) - Stormray /run BuyMerchantItem(11) - Runescale Koi /run BuyMerchantItem(12) - Black Barracuda /run BuyMerchantItem(13) - Aethril /run BuyMerchantItem(14) - Dreamleaf /run BuyMerchantItem(15) - Foxflower /run BuyMerchantItem(16) - Fjarnskaggl /run BuyMerchantItem(17) - Starlight Rose /run BuyMerchantItem(18) - Leystone Ore /run BuyMerchantItem(19) - Felslate /run BuyMerchantItem(20) - Stonehide Leather /run BuyMerchantItem(21) - Stormscale /run BuyMerchantItem(22) - Unbroken Claw /run BuyMerchantItem(23) - Unbroken Tooth /run BuyMerchantItem(24) - Shal'dorei Silk /run BuyMerchantItem(25) - Arkhana /run BuyMerchantItem(26) - Leylight Shard Example: I found that I will get the most value from Fjarnskaggl, So I create this macro:
      /run BuyMerchantItem(16) You can adjust the amount of stacks you want to buy, but the best is to just spam the macro until you're out of bloods if you want to deplete them all.
      Enchanting
      Greatly synergizes with blood farming. You get a lot of gold by disenchanting everything. Don't disenchant BoE purples! Chaos Crystal is the main source of income and disenchanting epic gear has a chance to yield a Blood of Sargeras. The key is to obtain as much gear as possible from World Quests (look for quests that award purple items when doing your daily cache), Mythic+0 dungeons, LFR  and other sources. If you're doing Heroic dungeons, disenchant every rare item to get Leylight Shard. Disenchant all green gear you come across into Arkhana. Sell all crystals, shards and dust. Order Hall Missions
      To further improve your gold gain, don't forget about missions that award gold! If you're success chance is 200%, you're guaranteed to receive bonus gold. Don't forget to put everything in the Auction House.
      Closing Tips
      Mobile Armory is far more comfortable to use than the in-game Auction House. Legion Companion App can be used for Order Hall Missions. Sell all Defiled Augment Runes you get from LFR, Order Hall Missions.

      Build 23623 added five mounts that will be available from Reputation Paragon. For every 20,000 reputation gained beyond Exalted with Legion factions, you'll receive a new emissary cache that has a chance to contain one of the mounts.
      Mounts are tied to specific zone caches. No indications if they are a 100% drop though.
      Collecting 10 caches awards the Paragon of the Broken Isles achievement. You can obtain the following mounts (sorted as they appear in the video).
      Highmountain Elderhorn Wild Dreamrunner Cloudwing Hippogryph Valarjar Stormwing Leywoven Flying Carpet Highmountain Elderhorn and Wild Dreamrunner are probably only ground mounts.
      Which of the mounts do you like most?

      Mages are getting a flying disc (Archmage's Prismatic Disc) as their class mount in Patch 7.2. After talking to Archmage Kalec, you accept the quest Dispersion of the Discs and the objective is to complete a Ritual in the Eye of Eternity.
      These discs are radiating with power! It must be their proximity to one another. We must take them from here should they resonate further and cause a catastrophe in these sacred halls.

      I'll send them to the one place I know where we can reign their energies in, preventing any sort of explosion. I'm speaking of the Eye of Eternity.

      There we will be able to safely finish what Antonidas was unable to complete. Speak with me again when you're ready to leave.
