Patch 7.3.5 Dev Tweets

Recommended Posts

34577-faction-embassies-in-patch-735.jpg
 

As is usual with a new patch, there are plenty of new issues popping up and aside from the hotfix posts, the devs also give us some info over the official dev twitter. Here's what they shared in the last few days that wasn't covered in the hotfix notes:

First off, some players discovered an issue with a couple of battle pets and it was swiftly fixed:

This general issue was mentioned in the hotfixes, but there's specific info on Na'zak the Fiend, and I for one deinitely enjoy the use of "smashed":

It also seems more class ability bugs are popping up, specifically "on death" triggered ones, but no solutions for these for now:

We then have a reminder of how the Seething Shore will unlock:

Then there are the mount and transmog issues:

And then there's the still pending issue with the latest and final Antorus LFR wing:

And finally, a reminder on the new Wakening Essence legendary vendor and his interaction with bad luck protection:

I just don't understand how all of this could go through the PTR into live. This is an unusually high amount of bugs for WoW.

I think the level scaling was a HUGE undertaking and took a massive amount of resources so the other stuff just kinda fell through the cracks.

I had to duck out of a raid tonight at the Coven because I just couldn't justify myself being there with sub 5fps, I hope they fix the issues in due time, I'm still enjoying myself after coming back from a break.

some players also don't report certain issues. Especially when the bug gives them an advantage, like extra damage or extra loot/gold.

I do agree, I rather had them wait a few weeks longer. Then again PTR is not the same as live. Nothing is better at finding bugs than a live game ;).

Well there is a difference between live and PTR so you can't really expect no bugs when you apply the patch to live realm.There was also alot of stuff they had to work on this patch,

Just consider for a moment the number of people in the development and QA teams and the actual amount of players. This also brings up the server strain into account. For example feature 'X' works fine when it is used by 50-100 players at a time but breaks when 500-1000 people try to use it simultaneously.  ()

Forget my post from before. It’s certainly understandable as to how stuff could break into live with such a huge patch and Blizzard does a better job at fixing things than most other companies.

      This is a classic in the making. Aside from just going over all the major events/expansions, the video delves deep into the nuances of Horde-Allaince relations throughout the years, portraying the ups and downs of the faction conflict almost perfectly. I can't say enough good things about the in-depth and thoughtful portrayal of WoW's history and Blizzard's thoroughly consistent writing throughout. Enjoy:

      Despite being mid-attack for Horde, the Heroic Darkshore Warfront opened on European realms with the start of Season 4 which was not intended, but Blizzard decided to carry on with it in the region instead of disabling it.

      The Heroic Darkshore Warfront opened on European realms with the start of Season 4, despite it being mid-attack for Horde. This was not intended, but we think it's best to carry on with it in that region, since it has now been underway for several hours. Initially, the plan was to enable Heroic Darkshore the next time a certain faction would attack the zone in a given region in Season 4.
      Blizzard (Source)
      The option to queue for Heroic Battle of Darkshore will become available when the next time a certain faction commences an assault on Darkshore in a given region. Regions that are already partway through a Battle of Darkshore attack cycle will be able to access Heroic difficulty the next time Darkshore comes under attack in Season 4. Heroic Darkshore Warfront offers item level 460 loot and you will be able to buy the Sandy Nightsaber with Service Medals once you complete it.

      Since the introduction of the new Auction House in Patch 8.3, we've seen bugs pertaining to delayed Auction House mail. Blizzard posted an update on the matter and it turns out the issue is fixed on Americas realms with the same fix coming to European realms in approximately three hours.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’ve received confirmation that all of the AH mail that was delayed is now delivered and available on Americas realms.
      The same fix for European realms will take place in about 3 hours.

      Rajani Warserpent is a new mount sold by the Rajani Quartermaster for 1 Pristine Cloud Serpent Scale. Up until now, we didn't know where the scale drops from, but it turns out it's from a Rare Elite called Rei Lun that spawns during Warring Clans Assault on the Vale of Eternal Blossoms.
      The Warring Clans will be assaulting the Vale for the next 2 days and 13 hours on US realms, so make sure to follow these steps to get your Rajani Warserpent:
      1. First, go to Vale of Eternal Blossoms and find the entrance to Guo-Lai Halls (22, 24).

      2. Go straight down the hallway until you come across Mogu traps, pass them, go down the stairs and you will find Rei Lun, the Chalcedony Construct who has a chance to drop Pristine Cloud Serpent Scale. The Rare Elite is located at 22, 12.

      3. You don't need to wait for the mob to spawn on your server. Simply, use the Premade Group Finder to search for "Rei Lun" groups, join them, kill the Rare Elite and leave the group.

      As with most Rare Elites, you get one attempt per day on a single character to get Pristine Cloud Serpent Scale that can be exchanged for Rajani Warserpent in Mistfall Village. We tried server hopping and killed Rei Lun for two hours straight, but didn't see the scale drop.
