Quest Log Glitch Hotfix: August 1st

Recommended Posts

2bVwRgR.jpg

Blizzard identified a bug that causes the quest log to become empty when changing zones and they have rolled out a hotfix, but it may take some time to cycle through and update across all realms. Affected players will not have their quest progress reinstated.

Logged on this character a few minutes ago and noticed in my inventory that my raid mission quests were showing they could be accepted. Checked my log, it's completely empty, which included a ton of stuff partially complete. I accepted one of the quests to see if it was just a display error, it is unfortunately not.

We're starting to see a number of these reports come up. Let me ask, do any of you use addons that related to questing and your questlog? Those that might have the ability to abandon the quests? 

I'm wondering if this is a new bug, or perhaps an addon is out of date and doing something it shouldn't.

Thanks all. This is being looked into.

Sigh, I SUPPOSE not. Doesn't fix my broken quest tho

If you are referring to the quests abandoning, it certainly can. By "we're looking into this" I mean that our QA team is investigating the quests abandoning. If they can then figure out why they are abandoning they can put out a resolution that will stop that from happening. 

A resolution and an empty box still gets you a very useful empty box that can be used to hold some of your most favorite things... oh and the issue resolved so you can pick up quests and hold onto them when you are zoning. 

As soon as I have more information I'll update this thread.

So the question is will quests be restored, including the status that the quest was in, or are we gonna have to start all over? lol

I don't know if that is possible, Kamarel, but that is certainly part of the discussion about this situation. For the most part you should be able to just pick the abandoned quests back up, but for those who had partially or fully completed the quest, there may not be a way to verify that progress to restore it. One step at a time, let's get the quests to stop abandoning upon zoning first.

Don't want to tell you how to do your job, but you're basically telling people: We messed up, and you'll pay the price. Start over.

First, please watch the language. 

I am not trying to diminish the impact of this issue at all, it is obviously a huge deal. Especially depending on the quest that was lost... Bugs are regrettable when they happen, and we do what we can to deal with the outcome. I don't want to make any promises on a resolution when I don't know what may be possible here. 

As an update, a fix has been found and implemented and it is populating through the live realms now. It will take a little while to cycle through and update across all realms/shard but folks should stop losing their quests.

Should it not be possible for those of us affected to post someplace and have our quests restored from before the glitch started?

Likely not, Tawsh. We have no way to update quest progression, we're unable to grant partial progress, etc... . If we could, verification would require extensive log searches that may not actually provide a full history if some of the progress was made outside the scope of the logs (i.e. within a month on average). 

As it stands it is unlikely that we'll be able to assist directly with restoring quest progress. If the quest required you to collect items that were not labeled as "Quest", they should still be in your inventory and the quest will update when you pick it back up. 

You should otherwise be able to pick up any quest that you had before this incident by returning to the NPC that provided it. 

We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience this issue has caused.

Really, guy?

As all knowing as you may think they are, they cannot track every item for every character on every realm, ever.  Just aint gonna happen.

      Blizzard has updated the character creation screen, making newly-created characters wear fancier, better-looking armor, to give players an idea about how their class would look wearing an armor set.
      The Demon Hunter set remains unchanged, so we're listing the remaining classes that have received new armor sets for preview. Note that the sets are there just for preview and they're not actual starter sets!
      Death Knight

      Druid

      Hunter

      Mage

      Monk

      Paladin

      Priest

      Rogue

      Shaman

      Warlock

      Warrior

      Ardenweald Zone Preview (Screenshots) Fire Mage Class Changes: June 3rd Ardenweald and Night Fae Covenant (Official Preview) Oribos Portal Added to Portal Rooms in Main Cities Torghast Development Notes: June 3rd
    • By Starym
      We have one of the biggest Torghast updates since Alpha launched today, as all classes are now available and have anima powers, Torments have been revamped to be additional challenges instead of a timer, and a lot more Anima power tweaks, bug fixes etc.
      June 3 (source)
      All classes now have Anima Powers and can venture into Torghast.
      Many classes have received new Anima Powers that affect their Covenant Class abilities.
      Torment Update!
      Torments no longer scale with time.
      Torments are now additional challenges based on the floor types you have encountered on this run.
      Developers’ notes: We’ve heard your feedback that Torments were adding too much time pressure. The Jailer may still torment you on higher levels of Torghast, but Torments will not scale with time. Breath of Coldheart  now increases the health of enemy monsters by a flat percentage based on the number of Coldheart Interstitia floors climbed.
      Mort'regar's Echoes now increase the Magic damage enemy monsters inflict by a flat percentage based on the number of Mort’regar floors climbed.
      Might of the Upper Reaches now increases the Physical damage enemy monsters inflict by a flat percentage based on the number of Upper Reaches floors climbed.
      Developers’ notes: The changes above were inspired by feedback that Torments that reduce your power feel worse than torments that affect your enemies. As always, we will continue to tune and keep a close eye on difficulty. Rewards and Access
      Legendary materials now only drop from cell block runs, not from the Twisting Corridors.
      Developers’ notes: Looting a Resonating Chest may generate a message that says that you have received “bonus materials” for a “timely completion”. This is an artifact from a previous design that has since been removed, and can be ignored. Chests in the Twisting Corridors now drop Twisted Dust , which will be used for cosmetic rewards.
      Portals to the six cell blocks (not the Twisting Corridors) now take you to fully-randomized 6-block runs, rather than the pre-set quest run. This includes a Wayfinder on floor 1 that allows you to choose your difficulty.
      Two of Torghast’s six cell blocks are open per week. For testing purposes, the available blocks will change daily. They will change weekly in the final version of the game.
      Access to the Twisting Corridors will always be available in addition to the two theme blocks.
      Developers’ notes: Players who seek Legendary materials alone can do so in Torghast’s cell blocks, and can earn more materials by climbing higher. Players who are looking for cosmetics, or who simply want to play without pressure, can do so in the Twisting Corridors. More Notes
      This build includes many bug fixes. Thank you very much for your bug reports! Remember: Alpha is alpha. Things will still change, especially rewards, tuning, and Torghast’s interaction with outside systems. We really appreciate all of your testing and feedback. Many huge Torghast changes have arrived today.

      Blizzard today outlined changes coming to Fire Mages in the near future on Shadowlands Alpha to give players more agency over spreading Ignite.
      The devs want to give Fire Mages more agency over spreading Ignite. At first, they wanted to make Fire Blast spread it, but the spell is used for Hot Streak, so they will make Phoenix's Flames baseline for Fire Mages, giving players more choice over when to spread Ignite. A replacement talent for Phoenix's Flames will be added in future builds.
      (Source)
      We want to make Ignite spread something the player has agency over, and first experimented with the past system of making Fire Blast spread it. However, because of the importance of using Fire Blast for Hot Streak very frequently, we’ve seen feedback that this creates a lot of tension and still makes it difficult to control when you and don’t want Ignite to spread.
      In the next alpha build, we’re going to try letting Phoenix's Flames fill this role, as a baseline spell for Fire Mages. This gives Phoenix's Flames a unique function and identity as a core spell, as well as allowing for more choice over when to spread Ignite. If we continue with the change, we’ll look into a new talent to replace Phoenix's Flames in upcoming builds.
