No Loot from Icecrown Rares if You're Turned Into a Zombie

Recommended Posts

54025-death-rising-week-2-now-live.jpg
 

We have a bit of a public service announcement today for those of you farming the rares, especially after the recent increase in their spawn frequency. As the Scourge invasion event arrived this week, many players are spreading it all over the place, and some are going to Icecrown while zombified and infecting others.

This all sounds fine, all in good fun, but unfortunately, if you're turned into a zombie during your fight with a rare, you will not get the loot from it at all. You won't be able to loot the body even after you die and rez up, and it won 't arrive in your mail either:

Apparently something similar happens with Nathanos as well, but since his loot is tied to the world quest, it just means you'll have to re-kill him.

So to all if you still bagless and possibly blue protodrake-less, it's time to enable zombie apocalypse protocols and be very careful if there are some of the infected undead around!

I was going to try this but every time I take a portal it clears the infection. Also, you have to port as infected but before you go full zomb. Zombies can't use ports.

Do you know if this is affected if you have been turned into a zombie in any zone cause I wasn’t turned at all in icecrown but was in the barrens and when farming 5+ rares in icecrown shortly after received no loot from any of them ??

I've had zero issues with loot drops after playing around as a zombie. In fact, after my initial attempt to infect Icecrown rare groups went bust, I just joined in on the next boss and got my usual 20-30 stones.

I got hit in the Blightcaller fight. I just ran off to one of the hills to stay near but out of the raid. I got noticed and killed by other players, but hung around after I died, and got credit/loot for the boss kill/world quest. I guess the other players did me a favor.

Generally if I get infected I'm just running off alone and exploding myself. I really don't want to be part of the event... I especially don't want to be flagged for PvP. Not really happy having it forced on me. At least it's only for a week.

The guild vendor cloaks (cooperation, unity, etc.) which have a use effect to take you to your capital city do not clear the infection, or at least they didn't as of Sunday night.

      Blizzard have detailed what's been going on in relation to server stability and the long queues some servers are experiencing:
      (source)
      Since shortly after the launch of Shadowlands, we’ve experienced some service issues that are negatively impacting gameplay on a small number of realms. In this region, we’ve been monitoring and working around the clock to solve these issues for:
      Area 52 Frostmourne Illidan Stormrage Tichondrius We increased realm capacity to let more players than ever before into a single realm, but extreme demand on a few realms has exceeded even that capacity, so we have dialed down some of our earlier changes. We are trying to carefully balance service stability and accessibility, and exploring multiple avenues to get everyone online and playing smoothly.
      This issue is our number one priority. We will continue to work to solve this as quickly as possible, and we will provide further updates as necessary.
      Thank you very much for your patience.

      The most controversial issues of the Shadowlands has begun creating real problems already. Many players are having huge issues when switching Covenants, as there's either bugs in the way or, much worse, actual intended consequences of the switch. We will be looking at only a few of the many reports of problems/badly designed switching systems from reddit.
      The biggest issue reported so far is for players who chose a Covenant, only to find out they don't really like it and, since it was explained that switching them was NOT a big deal, while switching back was, they swapped early and are now screwed for an entire week's worth of progression and story content.
      We don't know if this is unintended, a bug, or exactly how it's supposed to work, so there may be hotfixes incoming (hopefully).
      What seems to be happening with all of the above is that they "spent" their currency on their previous Covenant or it was "locked" by default because it was earned pre-switch, and the souls needed to progress the campaign are now VERY hard to come by (only possible through World Quest drop) because of the weekly limitations.
      So if you're not liking your Covenant, either wait until late in the week to switch, or maybe if you haven't done ANYTHING in it, it could be safe to do so, but we can't be sure. Let's hope there's hotfixes coming soon and this isn't the way it's intended.

      The Shadowlands really look incredible, and the visuals really are one of the strongest aspects of the new expansion, but there's even more to them (or less, in this case)! Players have been exploring the afterlife, and after many, MANY "Bastion is really bright" memes, it seems players have taken to dimming things down, and the Inky Black Potion from the Darkmoon Faire makes the Shadowlands really true to their name!
      Let's start with Oribos, as the contrast really pops:

      And the infinitely bright Bastion:

      We even got a comparison shot for Maldraxxus!

      But truly, Ardenweald is the star of this Inky Black show:

      While Revendreth just looks more Revendrethy:

      The Maw, however, sort of loses some of its uniqueness:

      Source: thadakism.
      We even get a clearer view of Torghast back in Icecrown with the potion!

      Source: tiniestjazzhands.
       
      In any case, if you have some potions handy, definitely take a look around each zone while you're in there, or if not, don't forget to stock up the next time the Darkmoon Faire is in town!

      Did you always get slightly upset when Pelagos and Kleia would mount up on those cool flying lion-looking mounts in the Bastion quests and you couldn't? Well now you can! The Silverwind Larion has been found, or rather the way to get him has, as you'll "just" need to collect 50 tiny Anima Shards in Bastion.

      Image by Warcraft Mounts.
      As Belivious677 pointed out, the WoW secret finding community has recently found the final 50th one, and you can find all their locations (and details on the hunt itself) in this google document, or they may have already been uploaded to the HandyNotes: Shadowlands addon as well (the creator put together the google doc as well), or they will be soon.

      These aren't all of them so definitely check out the google doc for the full guide.
      So once again, thanks to Belivious677 for pointing out the secret has been solved, to HandyNotes maker Zarillion for putting the search together and to the WoW secret finding discord for, well, finding the secret!

      We have a very useful list/visual made by TempusSimian today, as they've taken a look at all the Covenant-related mounts you can acquire, and you don't even need to be in that specific Covenant for all of them (although you might need help from someone who is)! This isn't a definitive and final list, as TempusSimian has just researched the matter and the expansion is 2 days old, but it's very useful nonetheless! It's also a giant image so zoom in for the best results!

      In terms of actually being able to ride the mounts when not in that specific Covenant, the non-Covenant specific section SHOULD be usable regardless of affiliation. Another thing to note: it's likely that after Shadowlands, all of the Covenant exclusive mounts will become available to everyone, as you won't be in your Covenant for the next expansion's content (presumably, at least). We can't be sure on that last one, but it's a safe/reasonable bet. Also, don't forget, you can swap Covenants if you're just after the mounts for your collection and mounts collected total number (so maybe one of your alts will be the Covenant traitor and go around collecting mounts)!

      Source.
      So thanks a lot to TempusSimian for assembling this and hopefully it will aid you in your mount collecting journey!
