Kirin Tor World Quests Hotfix

Recommended Posts

8ib4Slb.jpg

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.

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!"

      Blizzard has responded to feedback on the Delves, outlining upcoming changes and addressing a bug that has been concerning players.
      First off Brann is getting buffed, with a focus on his survivability, but also his general usefulness overall. Secondly, players have been commenting on mob respawns within Delves and it seems that's almost entirely unintended, as a bug made them respawn. There may be some exceptions, but enemies will not be coming back once we take them out.

      Hi everyone!
      Thank you so much for the great feedback so far. We are looking at improving Brann’s survivability and usefulness throughout the delves. It is also a bug that enemies respawn. Aside from some exceptions, once something is dead in a delve it should stay dead. We’ll also be reviewing tuning for different classes, along with improvements to the pain points that have been mentioned here within certain scenarios.
      Thanks again, and please keep the feedback coming!

      In a completely un-shocking turn of events, Danta has created another great, fast, and easy guide for a raid mount, and this time it’s the Glory of the Thundering Raider achievement!
      Here’s the first hurdle: you have to do this raid 4 times to get the last achievement. Previously, this would have meant enduring 3 more "weekly" resets, which can be tedious as Danta himself admits. However, there’s a saving grace! Until MoP Remix ends, the Pandaria raids have a daily lockout instead of a weekly one, as confirmed by Blizzard.
      The second challenge is defeating the boss on Heroic difficulty. But the rewards - a ton of transmog gear and a cool-looking dino mount - make it worthwhile! 
      So what are we doing all this for? Well, completing the Glory of the Thundering Raider achievement will award you the Reins of the Armored Skyscreamer , a pretty cool looking dino mount!

      Image Source: Wowpedia.
      Additionally, you have a chance to obtain two other mounts in the raid itself: the Clutch of Ji-Kun is a rare drop from Ji-Kun and the Spawn of Horridon which is a rare drop from, you guessed it, Horridon, and in another shocking twist, the mounts look just like the bosses themselves.

      Danta also recommends using the Instance Achievement Tracker Addon that helps keeping track if you met the criteria for the achievement. So thanks to him for another very useful guide and our brand new mount(s)!

      The War Within pre-patch brings significant changes to leveling in mid-July! Check them out!
      An Overview of Leveling Changes in the War Within Pre-Patch
      We don't have a release date for the pre-patch, but it should be releases in mid-July. Leveling from 10-70 will be much faster in the pre-patch. You will find a separate news article covering the XP nerf here. Every time you reach max level (80) with a Warband character, you will receive +5% additional XP on alts, stacking up to 25%. (Five Warband Mentors: The War Within) When you reach 80 with your first char, members of your Warband will receive a 5% XP buff. When you reach level 80 with your second char, members of your Warband will rece a 10% XP buff. Chromie Time now covers levels 10-71 and includes Dragonflight as the default option (changed from Battle for Azeroth). We've got some Riding changes too, you will receive Master Riding at Level 30 which equates to 420% speed. Player scan switch between Skyriding/Dragonriding and standard flying. The Skyriding Skill Track has become streamlined with most abilities becoming passive. It automatically unlocks for new players as they level. Dracthyr Evokers will start at Level 10 (down from 58), which is why you should create one now! The Warband system brings account-wide reputation for Dragonflight and War Within factions, Warband bank for sharing items and gold, account-wide flight paths, and the option to send currency to your alts. For more details about all the changes, check out MrGM's video linked below.

      With the release of the War Within pre-patch in July, the XP required to hit Level 70 will be massively nerfed and we've got the details!
      Average Change for Each 10-Level Bracket
      When the War Within pre-patch hits, leveling from 10-70 will become much faster, because the XP requirements have been drastically nerfed.
      Average change for levels 1-10: +2.56% Average change for levels 11-20: -16.27% Average change for levels 21-30: -15.79% Average change for levels 31-40: -16.75% Average change for levels 41-50: -18.45% Average change for levels 51-60: -34.65% Average change for levels 61-70: -75.80% In the War Within pre-patch, you will need 53.94% less XP in total compared to live servers to level from 1-70.

      Here we have a table comparing the current live and War Within pre-patch XP requirements with the percentage indicating by how much they've been nerfed.
      Level XP Required on Retail XP Required in War Within Pre-Patch Change in Percentage (%) 1 250 250 0.000000 2 590 595 0.847458 3 1065 1085 1.877934 4 1675 1715 2.388060 5 2420 2485 2.685950 6 3305 3405 3.025719 7 4325 4460 3.121387 8 5485 5660 3.190520 9 6775 7005 3.394834 10 8205 8490 3.473492 11 9765 8150 -16.538658 12 11030 9210 -16.500453 13 12360 10335 -16.383495 14 13755 11510 -16.321338 15 15220 12745 -16.261498 16 16750 14035 -16.208955 17 18345 15385 -16.135187 18 20005 16790 -16.070982 19 21730 18250 -16.014726 20 23525 19770 -15.961743 21 25385 21345 -15.914910 22 27310 22975 -15.873306 23 29305 24665 -15.833476 24 31365 26410 -15.797864 25 33490 28210 -15.765900 26 35680 30070 -15.723094 27 37935 31985 -15.684724 28 40260 33960 -15.648286 29 42650 35985 -15.627198 30 45105 38075 -15.585855 31 45590 38430 -15.705199 32 46005 38725 -15.824367 33 46360 38970 -15.940466 34 46655 39155 -16.075447 35 46880 39280 -16.211604 36 47045 39355 -16.346052 37 47145 39370 -16.491675 38 47185 39325 -16.657836 39 47160 39225 -16.825700 40 47070 39070 -16.995963 41 46915 38860 -17.169349 42 46700 38590 -17.366167 43 46420 38265 -17.567859 44 46075 37880 -17.786218 45 45670 37440 -18.020582 46 45200 36945 -18.263274 47 44670 36395 -18.524737 48 44070 35785 -18.799637 49 43410 35115 -19.108500 50 42690 34395 -19.430780 51 47565 36305 -23.672869 52 52600 38265 -27.252852 53 57785 40275 -30.301981 54 63135 42330 -32.953196 55 68635 44430 -35.266264 56 74295 46580 -37.303991 57 80110 48780 -39.108726 58 86085 51030 -40.721380 59 92215 53320 -42.178604 60 194815 55665 -71.426738 61 214540 58055 -72.939778 62 234805 60490 -74.238198 63 255610 62980 -75.360901 64 276945 65510 -76.345484 65 298820 68095 -77.212034 66 321235 70720 -77.984964 67 344185 73400 -78.674259 68 367675 76125 -79.295574 69 391700 78895 -79.858310

      We have a bit of a shorter batch today, as retail gets some achievements looked at, while Cataclysm has class, raid and battleground improvements, as well as the reduced cooldown on character services!
       June 13 (Source)
      Achievements Fixed an issue causing some achievement-related creatures to despawn in Amirdrassil, the Dream’s Hope. Cataclysm Classic
      Race change, faction change, and paid server transfer cooldowns reduced to 3 days (was 30 days). Magmaw will no longer fall backwards during Impale, preventing players from doing damage. Fixed an issue where the Horde team was getting less resource points per tick with three locations captured in the Eye of the Storm, than the Alliance team would in the same situation. Improved combat logging of certain effects. Death Knight Death Coil will no longer critically heal for 300% of the normal value, instead of the intended 200%. Rogue Vendetta no longer persists on the target when the Rogue specs out of the talent.
