Time Offline Now Counts Toward Refund Timer in Shadowlands

Recommended Posts

46025-patch-83-pushed-to-wow-vendor.jpg

Vendor-bought items have become non-refundable while offline in the Shadowlands pre-patch.

Before the update, your time spent offline did not count toward the refund timer, but now, it does, as indicated by the REFUND_TIME_REMAINING global string changes.

  • Patch 8.3.7: REFUND_TIME_REMAINING - You may sell this item to a vendor within %s for a full refund.
  • Patch 9.0.1: REFUND_TIME_REMAINING - You may sell this item to a vendor within %s (including time offline) for a full refund."

This seems like another weird choice nobody asked for. 

Tbh i don't mind it, because sometimes I would loot something, disconnect, and then when i came back and wanted to use it or sell it, it would ask me if i'm sure because I won't be able to trade it, so yeah i'm ok with not having this

i like this. I remember there was a moment where the timer was pretty annoying for me, when i bought old pandaria set items that were available for gold. So i bought like every skin i was missing, and had to stick with about 40 items in my inventory that had to stay there for 2 hours gametime. I logged in later and they still had the timer, which is why i couldnt sell them to a trader, because it would refund und i would loose the skin...
Or am i missing a way, where i could instantly sell the items without loosing the skin?

Actually a lot of people have been asking for this for years. It is a good thing for buying appearances on a character that isn't a enchanter.

You can toss them into your void storage or mail BoEs to an alt to remove the refund timer, or disenchant them. I'm happier just running the timer out so I like this change.

I've done the same, and been stuck as well with a 2 hour in game wait. Was very annoying, as in real life, it may be a few days to log back in, and still be stuck with the timer. Quite happy with this change. There are some items that will bypass the timer if it has an "on use effect" (trinkets, necklaces, etc). Once it is used, you can then sell it back as intended. Sadly, as most transmog items have no "Use effect", the 2 hour timer is what it is. Enchanting or socketing also used to kill the timer, but that can be an expensive/wasteful way to speed up the resale. Not recommended, but still an option.

      One of the cinematics that got us most hyped for its expansion when it first showed up, WoD's upgrade makes it even more impressive! SnazzyAI continues the WoW cinematic improvements, and it's now Warlords' time to both shine and get smoothed out! While the 4K upgrade looks great in its own right, it's the 48 FPS that's the bigger difference here, especially with the orc facial animations.

      It seems the pre-patch keeps bringing us new Scourge invasion-like oddities, despite the event not starting yet! The squish/scaling hits again, this time uncomfortably mimicking the real world, as we have another possible outbreak! This one isn't quite as lethal as the original Corrupted Blood epidemic, and it's a lot harder to spread, but there's still fun/mayhem to be had.
      The actual disease isn't anything new and has bee around a long time, as BlazingShadowAU and their group were doing ICC and when they were done they returned to the Great Seal, where people started dying all around them. They accidentally brought back Necrotic Plague, and the initial outbreak didn't quite last long as the disease isn't nearly as deadly as the old-school Corrupted Blood. However, if you have a group determined to have some fun with it...

      So, Necrotic Plague works differently since the pre-patch, as it apparently scales up quite a bit, to the point of 1-shotting players! Unfortunately this didn't quite work everywhere, and the Orgrimmar fields of Corrupted Blood death were not to be, with the main casualty in Org being the innkeeper and a few players. But, there was a better target available, as the scaling in BfA and Legion was quite deadly.
      It still took some effort, as the plague is on a 15 second timer and keeping the stacks high was part of the fun as it made it deadlier. And to do that you have to spread it to someone by dying, come back and get infected again by someone who has survived - and the higher the stacks get, the harder that is to pull off because players die faster and faster! Dispelling the disease also spreads it, but removes a stack, so there was probably a better way to get this done.
      In the end, the outbreak was limited to just a bit of fun in the Great Seal, as that's where the scaling was highest, and the close-by rez spot made spreading the plague easier.
      Unfortunately the reddit video embeds are still not working properly, but definitely head on over there and check out the full video!

      The stacks were getting pretty high at the end there!

      And so the group had a little bit of fun and there wasn't a full outbreak, with the Lich King's power growing a lot as players were dying all over the place and spreading the disease (perhaps if Bolvar had access to this, we wouldn't be in this whole Shadowlands mess to begin with). The pre-patch certainly continues to deliver on the weirdness, and we can't wait to see what it shows us next!

      The first Mythic Ny'alotha nerfs have arrived in the Shadowlands pre-patch. Blizzard reduced the health of enemies and nerfed Carapace of N'Zoth. More details will appear in today's hotfix update.

      Late yesterday, we made the following adjustments to Ny’alotha on Mythic difficulty:
      Damage and health of all enemies reduced 10%. Carapace of N’Zoth Infinite Void damage reduced by 50% per stack, Black Scar damage reduced by 10%, and Mandible Slam damage reduced by 25%. These hotfixes are live, and will appear in our next hotfixes update.

      Here's Rextroy's brand new video where he utilizes Shaman's Frost Shock and the Hailstorm that persists even when you switch specializations to one-shot players.
      Here's a bit of background information on how to perform the combo.
      Here's the Frost Shock combo in action.

      Learn more about how to reach Exalted with the Gelkis and Magram Centaur Clans in Desolace under an hour!
      If you're working on the 100 Exalted Reputations achievement and are still missing some reputations for the title and Pureheart Courser mount, we've got some good news for you!

      It's possible to reach Exalted with Gelkis and Magram Centaur Clans in Desolace under an hour. Note that both reputations count as one.
      If you completed the quests in Desolace before Cataclysm, you must complete a series of quests which take about an hour up to Death to Agogridon. Pick all quests in the surrounding area to get started. Don't forget to toggle the filter on your minimap to see quests that are below your level.
      If you completed the quests up to Death to Agogridon post-Cataclysm, talk to Karnum Marshweaver at 57, 48 who will provide you with enough reputation to reach Exalted with both factions.
