Passenger Mounts Make Players Take Much More and Do Less Damage

Recommended Posts

There's a very interesting bug going around with the Chauffeured Chopper Chauffeured Chopper and seemingly other NPC-equipped mounts, as players have been receiving a LOT more damage while riding them! Luckily it's not related to max level characters, but it's fascinating nonetheless, so let's dive in.

There have been a few posts surrounding this in the community, as players noticed getting double to 10-20x more damage and more while riding the chopper mount. This didn't get much attention, but then came in with some video proof:

As you can see, the attacks go from doing the expected 5-ish damage, to a SLIGHTLY higher 100-120! Several other players chimed in to say that it's not just a chopper bug, but that they've also experienced it with other mounts, citing the Reins of the Grand Expedition Yak Reins of the Grand Expedition Yak, which also has NPCs on it. In fact, it seems it's any passenger-related mount (excluding Dragonriding mounts, as they have separate mechanics), as even the Sandstone Drake Sandstone Drake is affected!

But that's not all, as you'll also be doing a lot less damage when you start casing while mounted on such mounts! This bug is even weirder, as the damage will be shown as normal over the mob, but will do a lot less actual damage to it:

It seems there's some bug happening related to the scaling of the NPCs, and possibly Chromie Time-Related as well, since it doesn't appear work with max level characters and it also doesn't work on Exile's Reach. tried to get into the details:

I think it could be one of two things:

1: The game sees that the mob is "L60" [as all mobs scale up to that level in Chromie Time, except on Exile's Reach, since you can't enter Chromie Time there], and treats the player as being "L40", since they're being driven around by their Chauffeur, who only scales up in level to 40. [...except this theory might not be entirely right, since the multiplier for increased damage seems to go down as the player levels their character, since a L1 gets hit for ~28.25x damage, the L8/9 got hit for ~14.23x damage, and the L20 got hit for only ~3.85x damage.]

2: The game is treating the player as a mob when sitting in the passenger seat of the chauffeured mechano-hog, and for some reason considering incoming attacks as player attacks.

EDIT 2: After further testing, this bug applies to any mount that can carry passengers (Traveler's Tundra Mammoth, Grand Black War Mammoth, Grand Ice Mammoth, Grand Expedition Yak, Longboi...)

 


The specific trigger and details of how the bug works are unclear, but you may want to avoid mounts with NPCs on them (and even the Sandstone Drake) if you don't want to get destroyed!

      Blizzard has added a completely new category to the Great Vault in the War Within. Find out more about the updated requirements!
      While we can't bring up the UI on the Alpha, based on datamining, we were able to figure out that the PvP row has been completely removed and replaced with a World row, as indicated by the new global strings for Build 54675.
      GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_INCOMPLETE - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a Great Vault reward. World activities count as Tier 0.|n|nThe item level of your reward will be based on your highest run this week.1 GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_COMPLETED_FIRST - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a second Great Vault reward. World activities count as Tier 0.1 GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_COMPLETED_SECOND - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a third Great Vault reward.

New World Category
      As you can see, you can complete delves or other world activities to unlock items in the new World row, which is cool for players who do not want to do Mythic+ or Raids.
      To unlock items in the new row, you must complete 3/6/12 delves or world activities. World activities count as Tier 0, as you can see in the global string.
      To increase the reward's item level, you must complete Delves at a higher tier. We have 9 tiers in total with the last two being only for bragging rights (awarding cosmetics).
      Great Vault Requirements in the War Within
      Here are the updated requirements for the weekly chest in the War Within.
      Raids

      Let's check out the unique and rare mounts available from the vendor in MoP Remix.
      MoP Remix introduces 29 new mounts for your collection. However, there are some additional very rare mounts from raids and world bosses with a drop chance of around 1%. The best part is that you can buy them from vendors once you have enough Bronze. Just keep in mind that these items have a minimum level requirement and are quite expensive.
      Reins of the Astral Cloud Serpent (1% drop from Elegon in Mogu'shan Vaults)

      Reins of the Cobalt Primordial Direhorn (1% drop from world boss Oondasta)

      Reins of the Slate Primordian Direhorn (Low chance to drop from the Zandalari Warbringer Rare Elite in Townlong Steppes)

      Reins of the Amber Primordial Direhorn (Zandalari Warbringer)

      Reins of the Jade Primordial Direhorn (Zandalari Warbringer)

      The limited time Remix event just got a lot less deadly, as Blizzard fix another bug. Certain high level boss abilities were doing double damage, but a hotfix has cleared that all up! 
      Remix (Source)
      With a hotfix that we applied a few minutes ago, we’ve fixed a bug that was causing some high-level boss abilities to unintentionally do double damage to players.
      For players who have been inside an instance since before the hotfix went out, there will be no change until you leave and start a new instance.
      Thank you for your reports and feedback!

      Players without the Dragonflight expansion have been having trouble after reaching level 60in the MoP Remix event. Their characters would become locked, as levels 60 and up were part of the Dragonflight expansion, so there was quite a bit of confusion since the event wasn't supposed to require the latest expansion. 
      Luckily Blizzard have now clarified that this was a bug, and have since resolved it! 
      Remix (Source)
      We believe that this issue has been fixed with an update that we deployed with realm restarts earlier this morning.
