A Warning About Korthian Relics, Banks and Archivist's Codex Reputation

Recommended Posts


Here's another of our Warnings, as particular interactions between the many Korthian relics you can turn in, the bank, the Darkmoon Faire  and the Archivists Codex reputation are either bugged or don't work as you'd expect.

You can read more about the Archivists Codex reputation and rewards in our 9.1 guide here.

First off and most importantly, as spotted by several players, there is a bug with the relics and storing them in your bank. Basically whenever you to turn in any relic, it will automatically also take ALL relics you have stored in your bank along with whatever you have in your bags, and NOT give you ANY reputation for the bank items. Strangely, players still got their Catalogued Research currency from the banked items, but no reputation in sight.

Archivists' Codex Rep is bugged with items from bank not giving any reputation

I had catalog research items in my bag and in my bank. When i went to the npc to turn in the ones in my bag, the items from my bank also got turned in for the currency. But i only get rep from the ones in my bag.


I had 150 in my bag and the other 3k in my bank. All 3.2k got turned in, but i only got 75 rep.

Warning: If you have any Cataloged Research items in your bank, talking to Roh-Suir to deposit research items from your bag will instead consume items from your bank and you won't gain reputation

Being stuck at the point where I couldn't deposit the relics I had in my bags because I had too much, but I also don't have anything worthwhile spending it on, I decided to bank all my cataloged research items in hopes that the cap would be removed. I then returned to Korthia and received a couple of cataloged research items from handing in a daily quest.

I figured I may as well deposit this research item. I talked to Roh-Suir to deposit cataloged research, and instead of consuming the item in my bags, the game ripped several relics from my bank. I gained 1365 cataloged research but I only gained 100 reputation.

When I looked in my bank, my Korthian relics were gone, as were most of my rare and epic relics.
- Antisceptic
Now it makes sense. I had 3.1k relics and only got 247 rep, cos most were in my bank. What BS. ? - Aryiana2669
I'm also hit by the same bug, missing 2862 rep, I hope they fix and rectify the issue for people affected by this.
If the mass-return is pulling items from your bank, those items should count towards your reputation. - Brightmist

Part of the reason players might want to keep the relics in the bank (aside from the pretty obvious bag space one), is because many thought that the Darkmoon Faire reputation buff would wok on the Archivist's Codex. However, this is not the case as WHEE! WHEE! does not affect it at all (as spotted by Wowhead).

Now players are hoping for some sort of restitution (and, obviously, a fix for the strange bug), so hopefully something can be done about that.

Along with the cap, the bag space issue has been getting pretty bad.  Seems every patch, something is added that you have to hold onto.  with Queen's Conservatory, I already have too many things (Wildseeds, stacks of catalysts), not to mention anima ITEMS (which, by the way, does NOT count toward the weekly 1000 anima quest if it ends up in your MAIL BOX because your bag is too full).  I also keep a stack of Stygia items because in that form, it won't be take away if I die in the Maw.  The stupid crap I have to do . . .

Sometime before, a dev asked WHY we had bag issues.  Which means they are aware that many of us do.  And yet, they continue to fill up out bags with more and more items.   Why not make it so we can CLICK on an anima item to make it a pile of anima (that any anima item can become).  Why not have Queen's Conservatory catalysts that can be stacked to 100?   Why can't we have our trinkets and other items with cool uses just become toys? 

But the fix here should be (for immediate concern) that the items from the bank NOT be taken for the Archivists research.

stupid bug for sure but is there a reason to be storing relics in your bank and not just turning them in? pretty sure DMF rep bonus doesn't work with them.

is there any daily or weekly relic limit ?. Everything was ok, but today because I killed a few rare and found a few chets, now everything is empty, only poor comes out of them, same is in chets. If so, it is a bit sad, because the blister with each addition spoils Wow

There are diminishing returns: the more you loot in a day the less loot you get from each thing.

Once you are at the point you just get poor or green relic items you are "done" for the day basically 🙂

Zyski maleją: im więcej łupów dziennie, tym mniej łupów otrzymujesz z każdej rzeczy.

Kiedy już jesteś w tym punkcie, po prostu dostajesz słabe lub zielone relikwie, w zasadzie „gotowe” na cały dzień 🙂 

it is nonsense, instead of attracting blizzard it rejects the player, because if it is so, it does not pay off to play, at this time the player looks for another game and finally moves to where he can develop all the time if he is allowed to. I wanted to continue to play and collect the relic, but it does not make sense since there is a limit and nothing is going well for me anymore. Sad that the blizzard destroys the game himself. Today there were a few relics, then a few green ones and now nothing, I wonder how tomorrow will be with quests?

      The recent Activision Blizzard lawsuit is having effects in World of Warcraft as well, with many players staging various kinds of protests, including sit-ins in Oribos while raising money for charity, and checking up on a disappearing NPC.
      The most prominent of the protests is from the Fence Macabre RP guild who stages a sit-in on the Oribos steps with hundreds of players, and also managed to raise a huge $9,500 for the Black Girls Code non-profit organization during it:
      The guild tried to get as many individual players together on the same shard via raid groups, but there were still plenty you can't see in the screenshots.
      Another interesting "event" in the game is players heading to Stormwind to "check up" on a specific NPC, namely Field Marshal Afrasiabi (who is named for Alex Afrasiabi, one of the people mentioned in the lawsuit allegations, and who also left Blizzard in 2020).

      The more interesting thing, however, is that Blizzard has seemingly started despawning the NPC, as he was not there when some players arrived. Players had actually been asking for the removal of all references related to Afrasiabi, so this might just be Blizzard listening, although there are other references still in-game.

      And finally, a message from one group of players to the other:

      In terms of actual player comments on the matter there are, of course, many more threads discussing the issue over on r/wow, so if you want to see more community reactions head on over there, with most comments in the main lawsuit thread.

      Blizzard President J. Allen Brack sent an internal email to Blizzard employees, addressing the allegations from this week's lawsuit.
      The president called them "extremely troubling" and said that he'd be "meeting with many of you to answer questions and discuss how we can move forward", according to Bloomberg's Jason Schreier.
      Placeholder for tweet 1418512291218264065 Here's a full transcript of the mail (courtesy of Jason Schreier).
      J. Allen Brack
      Hello Blizzard - 
      I personally have a lot of emotions coming out of yesterday, and I know you do, too. The allegations and the hurt of the current and former employees are extremely troubling.
      I know many of you would like to receive more clarity. While I can't comment on the specifics of the case as it's an open investigation, what I can say is that the behavior detailed in the allegations is completely unacceptable.
      It goes - without saying - it is completely unacceptable for anyone in the company to face discrimination or harassment. It goes - without saying - that everyone should feel safe working here, whether we are on campus, at BlizzCon, or working from home. It goes - without saying - it takes courage to come forward, and all claims brought to the company are investigated by internal and (when needed) external investigators. We take these claims very seriously. Claims made without fear of retaliation, and many times, I attend to them personally, along with our other leaders. Stepping back - when I talked with Bobby about taking this job, one of the first things I mentioned was a revered saint of the Brack household - Gloria Steinem. Growing up, the value of women as equals, understanding the work that had been done for equal treatment, and the fact that there was still much to do, were common themes. This is just one of the reasons why the fight for equality is incredibly important to me. People with different backgrounds, views, and experiences are essential for Blizzard, our teams, and our player community. I disdain "bro culture," and have spent my career fighting against it.
      Iterating on our culture with the same intensity that we bring to our games is imperative, with our values acting as our north star. This is some of the most important work we do, both as professionals and human beings.
      A company is more than a legal construct that exists as a piece of paper in a filing cabinet in Delaware. The people that work at the company make it what it is, through their actions and creations. Each of us plays a role in maintaining a place of safety for one other. And it is also up to each of us to continue to craft the Blizzard we want - and commit to doing our part in keeping Blizzard great but always aspiring for more.
      The leadership team and I will be meeting with many of you to answer questions and discuss how we can move forward. In the meantime, I wanted to know that you can talk to any man ager, any HR partner, any member of the legal team, or to any one on the executive team [including, Hey J]. If you feel more comfortable by talking to someone outside of Blizzard, or prefer to be anonymous, you can contact the Way2Play Integrity Line (CENSORED).
      I feel angry, sad, and a host of other emotions, but I also feel grateful to work alongside a set of leaders and thousands of employees who join me in their commitment to continuous improvement.
      Thank you Blizzard.

      Domination Socket Helper is an addon that prevents you from replacing/destroying Shards of Domination in Patch 9.1.
      Shards of Domination should always be extracted using Soulfire Chisel. However, if you decide to replace them, they will be destroyed in the process, which is where Domination Socket Helper comes in handy.
       What Does the Addon Do?
      Prevents you from replacing a Domination Shard and adds a button next to the socket which safely removes the shard.

      Destroying the item or selling it to a vendor is also blocked.

      I will add more functionality when I have time. (Hopefully, a window that lets you add shards without dragging them from your bags)
      You can download Domination Socket Helper here.

      It's been a big few days for the Race to World First, as the EU re-clear meant an actually pretty tense race for World 3rd, as Pieces and BDGG went at it trying to see who can defeat Sylvanas first and we got 5 guilds past the Banshee today!
      While the top 2 has been determined for a while now, that doesn't mean the race is over, and we had yet another EU vs. US face-off on our hands! We actually had 8 guilds progressing on the final boss of the Sanctum today, but only BDGG, Pieces and Method were actually close to a kill. After a lengthy re-clear, both Pieces and Method were back progressing on the boss, and Pieces were doing well, managing to get under 50% in 134 pulls, and then after a few wipes, this happened:

      Yep, that's right. 0.16%. THE closest any guild has come to defeating Sylvanas... without actually defeating her. It took Pieces over an hour to recover from that close of a call, but they did manage to focus up and get that extra tiny fraction of HP down, claiming and defending their previous World 3rd!

      BDGG were the biggest  movers in this tier, as they caught up to Pieces quite quickly and gained 5 spots on the world stage since Nathria, earning their World 4th!

      And finally, we got our 5th place guild today, as Method also improved from their Nathria performance, climbing 2 spots!

      We still have plenty of guilds still progressing on Sylvanas, 6 to be exact, 5 spots in the top 10, and the Asia first yet to be crowned! And as a final treat, here's Complexity-Limit's multi-PoV World 2nd video:
