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!"

      Toad mounts are finally coming in Tides of Vengeance, as Blizzard added two tints in the latest 8.1 PTR build. At this time, it's hard to tell the exact source of both mounts, but they could come from Glory of the Battle of Dazar'alor Raider or reputation paragon caches.

      Blizzard agrees that earning Azerite Armor in Mythic+ feels overly based on luck and in Tides of Vengeance, players will have more control over the Azerite gear they earn through Mythic+.
      Blizzard is adding a new currency in Patch 8.1, which you'll earn from your weekly Mythic+ chest and from scrapping and disenchanting epic-quality Azerite Armor. The weekly chest will no longer reward Azerite Armor. Thaumaturge Vashreen will be selling caches that reward a random dungeon Azerite Armor piece for a given slot that will be separated by item level.
      To give players even more control over Azerite Armor, Vashreen will also offer ilvl 385 versions of the specific dungeon Azerite Armor pieces for each class, sold at premium.
      Only Azerite Armor scrapped in 8.1 will yield the new currency. Vashreen's wares will increase accordingly when the second Mythic+ season starts.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Couple quick clarifications based on feedback so far: Only Azerite Armor that drops after Tides of Vengeance is released will scrap/disenchant into the new currency. Don't worry about hoarding the Azerite pieces you're earning now. When the next Mythic+ season starts, and item levels increase, the item levels of Thaumaturge Vashreen's wares will increase accordingly. We recognize that PvPers want more options and choice too. We're talking about that separately. Check out our Tides of Vengeance content hub for the latest Patch 8.1 information.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Throughout the discussions regarding Azerite Armor, there’s been a lot of talk about how you earn Azerite pieces from Mythic+ dungeons. Players have told us – and we agree – that the process of earning Azerite Armor through Mythic+ feels overly based on luck, and that there isn’t enough control in the players’ hands. Even with our bad luck protection systems in place, the sheer number of potential Azerite pieces you can get from the weekly chest means that trying to get ahold of a specific piece feels hopeless. That’s a problem we want to solve, and give you some control over the Azerite gear you earn through Mythic+. So here’s what we’re working on for Tides of Vengeance:
      First, we’re adding a new (as yet unnamed) currency, which you’ll earn from your weekly Mythic+ chest as well as from scrapping (or disenchanting) epic-quality Azerite Armor. This currency is rewarded in addition to the item in the chest (which can no longer be an Azerite piece), and the amount you earn will scale up exponentially based on the highest level Keystone you’ve completed. For example, completing a level 10 Keystone will reward you with about three times as much as clearing a level 7. Similarly, scrapping higher-item-level Azerite pieces will give you significantly higher amounts of this currency than lower-level pieces.

      To spend that currency, we’re bringing back an old friend: Thaumaturge Vashreen. He’ll have two main types of items for sale. The first are caches that reward a random dungeon Azerite Armor piece for a given slot (helm, shoulders, or chest). They’ll be separated out by item level as well (at 355, 370, and 385), with higher item level caches requiring significantly more currency to purchase. But we recognize that with six or more options per slot, this may still not be enough control for high-end players who want to be able to work towards a specific piece that perfectly complements their build. Thus, Vashreen will also offer Item Level 385 versions of the specific dungeon Azerite Armor pieces for each class, sold at a premium.
      We’re still nailing down the exact numbers, but our goal for tuning this new currency is that you’ll be able to purchase one of the Azerite caches that lines up roughly with the item level of the gear you’re getting from your Mythic+ runs every two or three weeks, with the specific 385 pieces as long-term goals for top players.
      Overall, we believe that this change will improve things in a lot of different ways:
      Mythic+ players of all skill levels will now have a clear path to upgrading their Azerite slots High-end Mythic+ players will have a way to target specific Azerite pieces to optimize their setups Duplicate or unwanted Azerite pieces from other sources (such as raiding) now have some additional value The piece of gear in your weekly chest will have a more reliable item level You should see all of this hitting the Tides of Vengeance PTR sometime in the next week or so. We really do appreciate your feedback, and believe that this, in addition to the new traits and other improvements coming to the Azerite system in Tides of Vengeance, will help ease a lot of the concerns about Azerite Armor in Mythic+ and as a whole.
