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

      Lady Jaina Proudmoore was not dropping any Glacial Tidestorms on Mythic difficulty after they buffed the drop rate to two mounts per run. As a result, she has been reverted to only drop 1 mount until the underlying issue gets fixed.
      Blizzard is currently investigating a bug that affects Mythic Jaina in the Battle of Dazar'alor raid and she now only drops one Glacial Tidestorm until further notice.
      Customer Support won't be granting additional mounts while the drop rate is reverted, according to the official support page.

      We should have received two mounts after today's hotfix, however after we kill Jaina we receive no mount at all.
      We identified an issue were Lady Jaina Proudmoore was not dropping any Glacial Tidestorm mounts on Mythic difficulty. She has been reverted to now drop only 1 mount again while the underlying issue is investigated.

      Customer Support will not be granting additional mounts while the drop rate is reverted.
      In the latest round of hotfixes, Blizzard buffed the drop rate of Glacial Tidestorm and Ny'alotha Allseer to two per run, because it took up to 20 weeks for a full Mythic group to get the mounts for each member. You can find more details here.

      Head to Dalaran and talk to the Archaeology Trainer to receive the The Right Path quest where you are sent to Thunder Totem in Highmountain to collect Bone Fragment of Eche'ro for the Spirit of Eche'ro mount.

      Download MapCoords or some other addons that displays coordinates on the world map. Teleport to Azsuna from the Stormwind/Orgrimmar Portal Room or use your Dalaran Hearthstone to reach Dalaran. Go to 41,26 find Dariness the Learned and learn Archaeology if you already haven't. Accept The Right Path quest from the Archaeology Trainer and fly to Thunder Totem in Highmountain. Talk to Lessah Moonwater to accept Laying to Rest. For the quest, you must collect 600 Bone Fragment of Eche'ro from four digsites in Highmountain.

      Hurry up! You only have until February 26 to get the mount!

      Redditor Arang_Choi is back with two more recreations of Warcraft lore icons in Minecraft, after his Lich King one we've already covered. We get to see how Illidan, Ragnaros and Deathwing were made in their truly massive scope (or megabuilds, as they're called), and they're really impressive.
      While I'd say Ragnaros came out the best of the three, Illidan is really great as well, even coming off a little Protoss/Zeratul-y with the low details in his face - or maybe he's just wearing a Defias mask:
      Ragnaros is his old fiery self, but it seems this version is post-Molten Core, as some raiders have taken Sulfuras from him and/or doused it in a whole lot of Eternal Quintessence!
      Deatwing is appropriately gigantic, and maybe we can get him and the Stormwind recreation together to re-enact the ending of the Cataclysm intro cutscene.

      Which one is your favorite?

      In the latest round of hotfixes, Blizzard increased the number of Mythic mounts that drop from BfA end bosses to two, meaning Jaina will drop two Glacial Tidestorms and N'Zoth two Ny'alotha Allseers, instead of just one. 
      It took a whole raid group up to 20 weeks to obtain Mythic mounts from BfA end bosses, so Blizzard decided to increase the number of mounts that drop on Mythic difficulty to two given that both mounts will have their drop chance reduced to 1% once Shadowlands goes live.
      Glacial Tidestorm drops from Lady Jaina Proudmoore on Mythic Difficulty in Battle of Dazar'alor.
      "Though she commands a variety of magical powers, Jaina has always been most proficient at summoning powerful elementals of water and ice."

      Ny'alotha Allseer drops from N'Zoth on Mythic difficulty in Ny'alotha the Waking City.
      "To find him, drown yourself in the Circle of Stars."

      You can find more about Visions of N'Zoth mounts here.

      We have a whole lot more Mythic mounts coming in as both Jaina and N'Zoth are dropping double the amount, more nerfs for healers in Horrific Visions (in groups of 2), as well as specific Stormwind vision nerfs, a brawl switch for PvP and more.

      For Classic we have a fix for a disconnect issue when queueing for a Battleground.
      February 14 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Battle of Dazar’alor Lady Jaina Proudmoore now drops 2 Glacial Tidestorm mounts (was 1) when defeated on Mythic difficulty. Ny’alotha, the Waking City N’Zoth the Corruptor now drops 2 Ny'alotha Allseer mounts (was 1) when defeated on Mythic difficulty. With these mounts becoming quite rare once Shadowlands comes out, taking 20 weeks or more for a full Mythic raid group to get the mounts felt excessive. Horrific Visions
      Reduced the health of enemies for groups of 2 or more that include at least 1 healer. Developers’ note: We expected that groups with a healer would gain efficiency by taking more risks, but we've found that this gain is offset by healers shifting focus from damage to healing as group size increases, so we're adjusting creature health accordingly. Stormwind Alleria Windrunner Darkened Sky now drains 40 Sanity (was 60 Sanity). When the Trade District bonus objective is complete, Chains of Servitude is now cast once during the fight (was twice). Items and Rewards
      Corrupted Items Fixed an issue which prevented items from being forged with the +12 Corruption version of Ineffable Truth (Corruption Effect). Player versus Player
      The upcoming Teeming Islands Brawl has been replaced with Temple of Hotmogu. Temple of Hotmogu Brawl’s bonus movement speed and haste have been increased to 50%. WoW Classic
      Fixed an issue that could cause the player to disconnect from the game while waiting in a long queue for a Battleground.
