Pre-patch Event Current Issues and Complaints

Recommended Posts

While some of the pre-patch issues have been resolved, there are plenty more where that came from, and we'll be taking a look, as the EU event is set to go live soon.

First off we have a couple of Nathanos World Boss issues:

Then it's on to the Icecrown rares, which don't have as many actual bugs or unintended interactions, but still have plenty of problems:

  • Heavy lag on some servers is making it very hard for players to tag a rare in time after it spawns, as their HP goes down very quickly.
  • The drop rate for epic gear is quite low (some say 10%), but the 34 slot bag seems to be a little higher.
  • The main complaint players are having with the system is the 20-minute wait for each rare spawn, especially since that means the 1 rare that drops the bag everyone wants, Bronjahm, spawns once every 6 hours and 40 minutes.
  • Not an issue, but nice to know generally - the Skadi rare also drops the Reins of the Blue Proto-Drake Reins of the Blue Proto-Drake mount, same as its dungeon version.

The actual quests are also running into some issues, with few zombies being available to complete one of the daily quests, as the plague has been made opt-in.

Starting the event quests will lock you out of the old, regular Argent Tournament dailies from WotLK until Shadowlands, as well as lock out out of the old Icecrown zones (as some players like to mine there and similar). Zidormi or a simialr NPC is not present to swap you back to the old version. One potential solution would be to Party Sync with a lower level player.

  • The cutscene not playing if you were dead as Nathanos died has also been resolved.

I just completed Nathanos on my hunter, I never died, and the cutscene still did not play. The screen goes black for a few seconds after Nathanos goes down and then cuts back to the game world.

I am on a heavy pop realm. Lag isn't really an issue. 1 tag and you got it.

 

34 slot bag....2 more slots.... no one is waiting 6 hours for that or cares- set spawns so download an addon.

i love how in wrath the event was just wild there was nothing special about drops etc apart from the momento the players made it fun.... now you have to opt in to get plagued by flagging for pvp the toy is already down to a few 100g on the ah and the broom is not even a toy. i was hoping for wrath 2.0 but hey maybe its a good thing we only have 2 weeks of this event now as im basically done with it on day one.

      Image: a copyright lawyer lying in wait.
      It seems Blizzard do read reddit and take some cues from there, as an update to the PTR today came directly from an earlier post on r/wow!
      A few days ago, redditor GrandmasterBow spotted that the copyright line at the bottom of the login screen hadn't been updated since the new year, and made a funny post/very serious copyright claim 3 days ago:
      It seems Blizzard did not want to get into the global conversion rates for hugs, as Tyrsenus spotted a change on the PTR client today, with the copyright line being updated!

      That's too bad for GrandmasterBow, as their plans to take over the game have been thwarted, but we can all be on the lookout next year, and already start thinking about all the things we'll change if we call dibs on the copyright in time!

      The current patch 9.0.5 PTR build (37774) has been marked as a Release Candidate, meaning we're close to it going live. Blizzard have already stated that the patch is expected to arrive some time in March and this very much confirms that. The 23rd would be the best guess but we may see it as early as the 16th as well, so here's hoping!

      While 9.0.5 isn't a major content patch it's still bringing plenty with it, from the new Mythic+ Valor System as well as improved M+ loot to many tuning passes for legendaries, Covenant abilities and classes, Epic Battleground, Maw and Torghast changes and more. You can read all the changes here.

      Blizzard just announced an upcoming tuning pass for 3 bosses in Castle Nathria and several changes to Sanguine Depths! 
      Raid and Dungeon (source)
      We’re working on a slate of adjustments to several encounters that we intend to enact with scheduled weekly maintenance (early a.m. PST on March 2 in this region). Here are the planned changes:
      Dungeons and Raids
      Castle Nathria Lady Inerva Darkvein Healers are now chosen as a last resort target of Shared Suffering and Concentrate Anima on Raid Finder, Normal, and Heroic difficulties. The ambient damage of Loose Anima for open containers has been reduced on Raid Finder, Normal, and Heroic difficulties. Targets of Shared Suffering no longer take damage from the beams they are wearing on Raid Finder, Normal, and Heroic difficulties. Passing through the opposite edge will continue to damage targeted players. Hungering Destroyer Health reduced by 5% on Mythic difficulty. Reduced the damage players wearing Gluttonous Miasma take by 10% on Mythic difficulty. The damage increase of Essence Sap has been reduced by 20% per stack. Expunge now shows up in the combat log when it is applied to players. Volatile Ejection now shows up as a debuff when a player is targeted with this spell. Sun King’s Salvation Increased the amount of healing Essence Overflow heals Kael’thas to 2.5% of his maximum health on all difficulties (was 2%). The tooltip will be updated to reflect the change in a future hotfix or patch. Increased the healing done bonus from Sinfall Boon to 100% per application on Mythic difficulty (was 50%). Reduced the strength of the Cloak of Flames damage shield on Shade of Kael’thas by 10% on Mythic difficulty. Sanguine Depths Wicked Oppressor’s Wrack Soul cast time increased to 2 seconds (was 1.5 seconds) and is cast less frequently. Regal Mistdancer’s Echoing Thrust damage reduced by 20% and is cast less frequently. General Kaal’s health reduced by 10% during the gauntlet event. Thank you very much for your feedback!

      It seems it's the week of leveling tricks, as we now have a very fast method on our hands, after yesterday's very low-effort one. Unlike that one, however, this one is definitely leaning on the exploit side of things, so keep that in mind.
      Leavaris came across a bit of an anomaly over in Silithus, as the Hive'Zora location is home to some weird scaling, XP-wise. The mobs seem to have their XP values in a twist, but you need employ a little trickery first via Chromie Time and Party Sync. The mobs will now grant crazy amount of experience and could get you from 50-60 in under 2 hours, as Leavaris claims! We haven't tested this one out, but it seems to be working quite well in the video. There's a solid possibility that this might be considered an exploit, so keep that in mind if you plan to try it.
      Party Sync has been a little weird XP-whise in general, but this one will (and should) get fixed pretty soon.

      Here come two more weeks of Mythic+ logs, with the class tuning changes having settled in. This week saw a +26 get taken down and not that many changes in the rankings since last time, as the meta seems to have very much settled in, so we'll be looking at the DPS, tanks and healers in all keys and some higher ones, as usual.
      Note: The logs are based on POINTS (as noted in each image), and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We'll also be switching back to the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity.
      In the 95th percentile we see some movement: unlike in raids, Mythic+ players haven't utilized the new Frost Mage buffs as much and even though the spec has jumped up a little, it's nowhere near the huge spike we've seen in Nathria. As for the all percentiles chart, we do have a new No.1, as Outlaw has taken Fire down a notch.

      Healer Specs
      Not many changes to healers, as the rankings are pretty much the same as a couple weeks ago:

      Tank Specs
      The tank meta seems very much set, as there haven't been any changes to the rankings for a long time now, as Vengeance dominates all:

      High Keys
      And now it's on to the high-end, as we take a look at the +15 and +20 all percentile data for DPS roles, where things look a lot different week-to-week every time, as there's much less data to work with. Of note this time around is the disappearance of Assassination from +20ies, as they were on top for quite a while and are now at the very bottom. The +15s are much more stable due to many more runs, and the big change since a few weeks ago is that Fury dropped down a little, as the hype over the buffs seems to have died down a little and Fire/Windwalker returned to their 2nd and 3rd places.
