Known 8.2 Issues Being Actively Worked on

Recommended Posts

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

      Blizzard talk about the specifics of the Valor caps and how they will be accelerating them due to the systems late addition, with a 5000 cap to start, increasing by 750 each week. You also won't be able to hoard it, as a character can only hold 1500 at a time.
      Valor (source)
      As we’ve tested and iterated on the changes in patch 9.0.5, we’ve concluded that Valor for Mythic Keystone Dungeon gear would benefit from an immediate kickstart, so we’re adjusting the configuration of Valor caps. This currency is being added well into Shadowlands Season 1, so we want to pace it as though it’s been available for several weeks, giving players a large measure of gear catch-up capacity from the start.
      In 9.0.5, there will be a weekly Valor cap that increases by 750 Valor each week, and the cap will start at 5000 Valor earnable in the first week. In the second week of 9.0.5, the Valor cap will be 5750. In week 3, the Valor cap will be 6500, etc. There will be a cap of 1500 on how much Valor a character can hold at a time. As always, thank you for your testing and feedback.

      The Alliance Castle Nathria Mythic Hall of Fame is finally full, but it appears that a Chinese boosting guild has filled it with many Cutting Edge runs discovered by players through Warcraft Logs.
      The Alliance has filled the Hall of Fame 29 days after the Horde, but according to reports, a Chinese guild named Q728 has sold more than 50 Hall of Fame / Cutting Edge pilots this tier. The alleged boosting occurs in each tier, but it is super obvious this time around.
      Reddit user Drathos1337 provided us with two interesting Warcraft Logs links. The first one links to their rosters and contains hundreds of characters with oddly similar performance on the final bosses after not performing that well on early ones, which hints at pilots. The second link contains their calendar, where you can view the individual runs.
      Many players are calling for a complete overhaul of the Hall of Fame system due to the boosts and Alliance taking a long time to fill it.

      We've seen plenty of WoW recreations in other games, from Minecraft, the Sims and so on, but this is a pretty new one as a part of Stormwind has been made in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater!
      While the details aren't exactly high, the architecture seems to be all there, but more importantly it looks to be a pretty solid skate park, with plenty of places to grind, wheelie and other skating terms I definitely know and didn't google like like ollie, boardslide and darkslide. The music isn't half bad either!
      This particular map is only available on the PS4, however, but it's still damn cool to just look at.

      It seems there's a much easier way to handle Devos, the final boss of the Spires of Ascension, as many players have been using this extremely powerful cheese/creative use of game mechanics/exploit to speed things up and make the encounter trivial.
      As spotted by the WoW Highlights Youtube channel, the method actually kind of breaks the boss, as Devos does none of her mechanics after the cheese, and it's pretty easy to pull off too. While this seems like an extremely obvious exploit, it's interesting to know that something very similar happened back in King's Rest, where you could do the same thing to Mchimba the Embalmer, the second boss, and Blizzard actually allowed that, even in the MDI, as Ellesmere points out and explains this new Spires method:

      You can see the results of the method here, as the boss just does nothing after the first spear throw interrupts her:

      And here are two more examples, where we can actually see the method being done directly (in the first two examples):
      This particular one seems like it will be getting fixed fast by Blizzard, however, as it is the final boss and the method basically removes the majority of the fight and makes it very trivial.

      Here we are in Nathria week 12 where there's still a lot of movement, with Retribution and Arcane jumping unexpectedly, heading into the upper reaches of the rankings. Frost has gone back down after its surge,sticking to the middle of the pack in the higher percentiles, as Balance, Affliction and Fire remain at their top 3 spots.

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.

      Retribution Paladin by Urthearso

      And here's a look at Heroic this week as well, where things really don't change much week-to-week, but it's still a nice comparison to the higher performing Mythic players.
