Known 8.2 Issues Being Actively Worked on

Recommended Posts

7eOt6lV.jpg
 

Earlier today the devs mentioned an issue with the Nazjatar phasing and that they were aware of certain aspects of it not working properly and that's now expanded into them listing a number of 8.2 issues they're currently working on.

First off we have the very much hated Nazjatar phasing, possibly the worst we've seen in a zone so far, but the issue in question seems to be focused around the PvP event:

Then it's on to three other issues, first of which is  increasing the health of certain Mechagon and Nazjatar rares, as well as speeding up their HP scaling so more players can get to tag them:

Then we have a quest change to Dangerous Creatures:

And finally, the World Boss quests will now show up with the standard gold elite portrait instead of the silver one, to distinguish them from rare ones more easily:

Both phasing and sharding are atrocious right now.

Not only is the Nazjatar PvP event absolutely Horde dominated, but it is near impossible to find even a single Alliance player to flag yourself for a reward. It should not be that the best way to play the event is to find a group in the group finder that has some Alliance players in their shard, and to then just waltz into their base and murder everyone who dares to teleport in. The fact that the NPC guards hit like wet noodles doesn't help either.

And it's also superfun to walk into an area with seemingly no mobs in it, only to then get phased into a group of 10 casters that hit like a truck.

The streamers that have talked about the pvp world quests basically said to just hop shards until you get to one your faction dominates.

Horde wins. Always. That's not the issue (well. at least not for me as a Horde player, I guess). The real issue is that you might end up in a shard that simply has no enemy players in it. 4 times out of 5 I can just walk into the Alliance base, and it will be empty. I don't know if it's because the Alliance players know that they are gonna get steamrolled, so they just turn off WM, or if it's a technical issue. Either way, realm hopping should not be the solution. They should just scrap the "kill 1 enemy player" part if they can't provide me with even 1 enemy player. 

As a side not, sharding and faction balance seems to work fine in Mechagon.

It is the same on Alliance. In some shards there was no Horde, since people are hopping into those that are winning. Won some as Alliance with only few Horde showing up (and then they disappeared after losing some points), even with raid invading their base, there was no one present to denfend.

There is a serious faction balance issue, since most active communities are on Horde (most of former Alliance ones have faction changed as well). Normally I barely see other Alliance players, so had to turn it off a few times. While Realmpop shows 45-55 A:H ratio, it doesn't account for alts and inactive accounts, this effect escalates as people want to have advantage in numbers, there is huge difference in active population. Not enough people are playing.

I guess the only solution would have been to fill shards equally without allowing shard-hopping during event, but then remaining Horde would constantly play on empty ones. It would require to change this system to faction-agnostic, players from both factions form something like automated or pre-made groups as event is about to begin (so higher population on one faction won't mean anything), kinda like arenas allow to fight teams from same faction.

its actually insane that no one has mentioned the mob aggro range, and just how much mobs are stuffed in this small area...

thats the biggest deal breaker for me atm, i couldnt even do a quest today cause i keep aggroig 5-10 mobs at every pull

 

sharding is bs, and rare farming isnt fun, nothing new

      Because 49 max level warriors (yes, he got another 3 done since last we checked) isn't enough of a challenge, DesMephisto has also been trying to collect all the plate transmogs available. Now we all try to get as much transmog stuff as possible for our mains/favorite chars, but the difference is, he might actually get it done (especially since he's already at 97.82%)! We talked to him about this ongoing quest of his, but first let's celebrate the fact that he managed to get his final shoulder piece today!
      The final item wasn't even RNG-based, but a PvP one, with this arena match being the final step to 1800 rating, the Corrupted Gladiator's Plate Shoulderguards and 428/428 plate shoulders . His reaction is... intense (and profanity-laden)!

      And so a big piece of the all plate puzzle is completed, so we dived a little deeper into this particular obsession/passion of DesMephisto's in a short interview.


      How long have you been on this “quest” and why did you start in the first place?

      It started in Warlords, towards the end when Blizzard announced the account wide transmog. I had always loved having weird items, biggest joy was having Dreadmist helm from Scholomance in Vanilla and wearing it in town. So when Legion came out I started collecting everything in sight, then our good buddy Crieve made ATT (All The Things) and I was really into running old raids and getting transmog, but eventually took a break for a while as the having one lockout a week felt frustrating. (This is part of the reason why World of Warriors exist)
       
      How far along are you?

      I’m currently at 97.82% with the remainder of items being in Legion and BFA.
       
      Of the pieces you’ve gotten so far, which have been the most annoying/difficult?

      Obviously the most attempts would be Tusks of Mannoroth . I had basically brute forced it by using 15 warriors a week with a heroic Garrosh lockout. It took about an hour and a half each week over 4 weeks but it was definitely unreal when it dropped. I had tried beforehand at this but all in all I think the total kills came in around 90ish, which is fairly low.

      Before we had legacy mode enabled for Legion, the shoulders off of Mistress Alluradel were pretty hard to get. I took a ton of warriors to Legion and had to have friends help me kill the boss.

      Probably the shoulders that drove me the maddest were the Pauldrons of Za'qul. I would use a Za’qul/Azshara lockout and try and spam it on warriors. It was difficult though and I had already seen them drop twice before. When it dropped again, I offered 220k gold on the spot and the person was kind enough to accept my offer. Thankfully due to personal loot, it was made a lot easier, I can’t imagine this being very fun to farm in Shadowlands.

      Other crazy items involve Violet Hold, where specific bosses have to spawn and then have to drop the item you need. Both Legion and Wrath basically drove me to insanity trying to predict boss spawns (I think there might be some actual hidden % for Wrath that changes based on the day from what I saw...but maybe I’ve been driven mad by N’zoth)

      Currently my biggest struggle is the boots off Ra-Den which requires you to do all of heroic Throne of Thunder, he drops nearly 50 items, with only 6 at any time. A real needle in the haystack.
       
      Of the ones you don’t have yet, which do you think will take you the longest/which are the most annoying or difficult runs to do? 

      BoEs are probably going to be the hardest, Morlune's Bracer is a rare drop from Strathomle trash. I even attempted to farm it and ended up with the Rivendare mount before seeing it! They sell for around 70-80k currently, sometimes lower, but it is a pretty maddening drop. The Legion BoEs are also personal loot so it makes the whole process just take an obscene amount of time.

      There are the rares in Argus too which have a chance to drop world defiler pieces that can only drop from chests/certain rares. It is all RNG and no real way to target.
      Of course then there's clearing mythic content, I need to kill Carapace for helm. That is going to be a challenging feat considering I don’t raid really currently (I’m geared but just haven’t wanted to raid this patch).
       
      Are you saving any for the end and skipping them now?

      No, I’m an opportunist. If I get the option, I will definitely jump on it. I usually skip the easier ones and focus on the harder things as it feels more satisfying to go down a hill then up one.
       
      Do you have any 1 specific item in mind for the final one you’ll unlock for that 100% plate collection? And if not, pick one!

      Probably Morlune's Bracer, what better way to end something like this then with a transmog you’ll likely never see, lol.

      Are there any transmogs that are not available anymore that you regret missing?

      Mythic Helya, Elite Warlords of Draenor. Obviously the most important transmog, the most meaningful one, Corrupted Ashbringer. Absolutely incredible piece, I’m jealous of Sparty Smallwood. Really wish I had the mind to raid and do Naxx back in BC.
       
      Since we’re on the topic, give us your top favorite plate transmogs!

      The elite set from Tomb of Sargeras 2k PvP in Legion. It is just beautiful. The Mythic Helya set was also incredible.
       
      Also, what other projects/quests like this are you working on/planning on atm?

      It isn’t set in stone fully yet, I don’t know if I’ll be able to accomplish it, but we’ve talked in the community about Project Need for Speed 60, a 31 day charity event speed running all 31 specs from 1-60. We’re looking at supporting Trans Hotline as many autistic people are also often trans. I’m not entirely sure if my mental health will be able to handle it with everything going on lately though.

      Montabon runs World of Warcraft with quite the setup, using a VR treadmill to move in the game and HTC Vive.
      On his YouTube channel, we also found one recent video, where he runs a Blackrock Depths Arena farm using the same setup.
      This sure is an interesting concept that allows you to play your favorite game while also doing something for your health. What do you think of this unusual setup?

      Thoorium from the Party Tortollans Discord discovered that there is no loading screen as of the latest Alpha Build when teleporting from Oribos, the main Shadowlands hub to Ardenweald and Revendreth.
      It seems Blizzard has increased the range that triggers a loading screen because if you use the Oribos portal to Ardenweald and Revendreth, you will receive no loading screen, but your character is unable to move for a short duration before the textures load.
      This does not work the other way around and you will get a really short loading screen when teleporting from Ardenweald and Revendreth back to Oribos.
      We're not exactly sure if this is just an early iteration of the system and the devs intend to make moving between the new zones instant, but teleporting to and from Bastion does not currently work that way.

      The Optional Crafting Reagents system has been updated again, and it seems we'll be able to specify both Secondary Stats on crafted gear in Shadowlands.
      Optional Crafting Reagents allow you to customize the final output of an item craft. Blizzard increased the number of Optional Crafting Reagent slots to four (up from 3) in the latest Alpha build. The new slot allows you to specify a second Secondary Stat, meaning that the crafted item will have Stamina + Primary Stat (Int/Str/Agi) and two secondary stats of your choice.

      Blizzard also moved Elethium Setting (used to add sockets to gear) from Slot 2 that is used to specify Secondary Stats to the Bonus Effect slot.

      Recap of Optional Crafting Reagents
      Crafted gear can be modified with Optional Crafting Reagents in Shadowlands. Each slot enhances your item in a different way and there are four available slots:
      Slot 1 increases the item level of a crafted item; Slot 2 specifies a Secondary Stat of a crafted item; Slot 3 adds a bonus effect to a crafted item; Slot 4 (NEW) allows you to specify a second Secondary Stat of a crafted item. Slot 1: Increase Item Level

      Here come some more PvP adjustments, as Corrupted Glad Spite and Breach get tweaked, along with the Versatile Corruption Effect, Reaping the Flames, Conflict and Strife and the Mistweaver Chrysalis talent.
      PvP Tuning (source)
      We’re working on a set of PvP tuning changes that will go live with scheduled weekly maintenance (early on June 9 in this region). This is what we’re currently testing:
      Items
      Corrupted Gladiator's Spite can once again stack more quickly when multiple Corrupted Gladiator’s Spite trinkets are used against a target. Void Portal summoned by Corrupted Gladiator's Breach is now slightly larger and easier to interact with when there are nearby units. Corruption Effects
      Versatile ’s effectiveness has been reduced by 33% when engaged in combat with enemy players. Azerite Essences
      Reaping Flames (Major – Rank 3) no longer activates on player-controlled targets such as pets, totems, or guardians. Resolved an issue that prevented Conflict and Strife (Major – Rank 2) effect from providing additional defensive benefit from versatility under the effects of certain class stuns. Monk
      Mistweaver Chrysalis (PvP Talent) now reduces the cooldown of Life Cocoon by 25 seconds (was 45 seconds). As always, we’ll let you know if there are any further changes to be made, or adjustments to those above, and we’ll report the final live changes in our Hotfixes Update.
      Thanks!
