Dungeon Izmene i Hotfixevi, Warlords Season 1 Conquest Gear Fix, Blue Teme

Dungeon Izmene i Hotfixevi

We’ve been going through a lot of player feedback and concerns regarding changes to Dungeons and the Dungeon queuing system. In response to this feedback, we’re making a number of changes and wanted to give everyone a heads up on the changes that we’re working on to address these concerns.

Reverting Default Loot Method to Need/Greed:
Going into Warlords, we wanted to try to improve the dungeon loot experience by using Raid Finder’s personal loot system that had been successful in Mists. While the personal loot system was successful in eliminating drops that weren’t usable by anyone in the group, and reducing loot contention in some cases, we’ve also heard a significant amount of player feedback about how the system feels unrewarding and unsatisfying.

In response to these concerns, we are reverting the default loot method in Dungeon Finder back to Need Before Greed. As always, players who queue with a full premade group may change group loot settings, and may use Personal loot or any other method if they so prefer. We will be evaluating how to better present and structure dungeon personal loot, and hope to re-introduce the system in the future.

We’re adding an award of 50 Garrison Resources for completing the first Random Warlords of Draenor Heroic Dungeon of the day.
This change is self-explanatory. Yay for more resources!

Adding Call to Arms for In-Demand Dungeon Roles:
The Call to Arms system for roles that are in-demand was not functioning properly for the max-level Warlords dungeon queue and we have a hotfix in the works to address this. In addition, the Satchel of Savage Mysteries will be updated to always contain an Augment Rune, which is a tradeable item that provides a consumable buff that is ordinarily only available through Raid Finder.

Hotfix for being unable to queue from Ashran Cities:
We recently implemented a hotfix that prevents players from queuing for dungeons or Raid Finder while actively engaged in PvP; to prevent players from circumventing item level requirements by using scaling PvP gear. However, this logic was mistakenly counting Stormshield and Warspear as active PvP areas and preventing queuing from there. That is being corrected (the hotfix will require realm restarts).

Keep in mind that these hotfixes and changes are still being tested, and are not live yet. As always, your continued feedback is welcomed and please let us know how these changes play out.

Warlords Season 1 Conquest Gear Fixevi
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Source)
As many of you reported, at the launch of Warlords of Draenor, there were a few issues that allowed players access to Conquest gear prematurely. Conquest Points (and in some cases, actual pieces of Conquest gear) were being rewarded from various locations, including Ashran, despite there being no active PvP season.

We’ve now corrected those issues, and no more Conquest points are being earned or Conquest gear being awarded. However, to preserve the integrity of the upcoming PvP season, we need to do something about the Conquest points and gear that some players were already able to acquire.

So, before Warlords Season 1 begins on December 2nd, we’ll be converting any remaining Conquest points into Honor, similar to the end-of-season conversions we’ve done in the past. Any excess Honor over the 4000-point cap will be converted into gold at 35 silver per Honor. Any existing Primal Gladiator’s (Conquest) gear will be converted into its corresponding Primal Combatant’s (Honor) counterpart.

We apologize for the confusion that these issues have caused, but are looking forward to a clean start to the PvP season on December 2nd.

Level 1 Blueprint Book Hotfix

Characters that for whatever reason did not automatically learn the Level 1 blueprints during the upgrade into a Level 2 Garrison will be able to purchase this book to learn all the building blueprints they're supposed to have access too.

However, there's a known issue where the book isn't being consumed when learned and the item cannot be sold or destroyed at this time. We're working on another hotfix to correct this issue but wanted to get this hotfix out so affected characters can progress.

For everyone's benefit: currently, you need to collect 100 Artifact Fragments and turn them in at your Garrison. As Jinx mentions, turning them in to the NPCs in Ashran itself will remove them from your character and not count for the Apexis daily.

We're also experiencing an issue for some players where the quest tracker will say "0/1 Artifact Fragments" and never update. If you experience this issue, you are still able to complete the quest by collecting 100 Artifact Fragments and turning them in at your Garrison. The quest tracker just won't tell you that you've completed the quest.

We're working on correcting these issues, but in the meantime, following those instructions should allow you to complete the quest. (Source)

Mob Corpses Despawning Quickly
Intentional or a bug?
The change to have corpses despawn more quickly was intentional and was made to improve performance in heavily populated areas (where a large number of things are being killed). We're planning to increase the duration again after things calm down. (Source)

Postmaster Hotfix
We had a discussion with the Postmaster a bit over a week ago regarding their mailing habits. Seeing that they haven't changed their ways, we're going to have another talk with them. In the meanwhile, I can visualize the Postmaster picking through a deserted dungeon like some sort of reverse Treasure Goblin and mailing things back to you. (Source)

Raid Lockout Systems Recap
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Source)
Lockouts at a Glance
Raid lockouts limit the number of times a character can kill a boss in a week for a chance at obtaining loot from that boss. Throughout the years, different raid lockout systems have been used, and multiple systems exist in the game depending on the system used at the time a raid was introduced.

To check your current raid lockouts press your ‘O’ key in-game, select the Raid tab, and click on Raid Info in the upper right. This will display your current lockouts, and time left until they reset.

There are three types of raid lockouts used in the game.

Loot-based Lockout
Used for: All Raid Finder raids, Siege of Orgrimmar Normal/Heroic, Warlords raids Normal/Heroic.

  • You can kill a boss as many times per week as you like, but only loot it once per difficulty.
  • Anyone can join anyone’s instance.
  • Bosses are never locked to you, and you can always go back and kill them later even if you’ve skipped them by joining a group that had progressed further.
  • Raid sizes can be anywhere from 10 to 30 players, and difficulty automatically scales to match.

Flexible Boss-based Lockout
Used for: Normal difficulty raids from Wrath of the Lich King through Throne of Thunder.

  • You can only kill a boss once per week, and you may not enter an instance where a boss is alive that you have already defeated that week.
  • You can move from group to group during a week as long as you’re joining instances that don’t have bosses alive you’ve already killed.
  • If you enter an instance that is more progressed than your own and get saved to it, you will be locked to all prior bosses.
  • You can move between 10 and 25 raid size, given these constraints.

Strict Instance-based Lockout
Used for: All classic raids (Molten Core through Sunwell), Heroic difficulty of Wrath of the Lich King raids through Throne of Thunder, and all Mythic difficulty raids.

  • Progress is tied to a fixed instance ID. Once tied to an instance ID, you may not enter any other versions of that raid of that difficulty until your raid lock resets.
  • If other players complete that instance while you are absent, the instance will be empty for you as well, because progress is tied to the instance, and not your character.
  • You may not switch between 10-player and 25-player raid size once locked to one size or the other (does not apply to Mythic which is 20-player only).

But the quality of the content does not excuse the subpar launch experience we delivered, and I apologize for that.

The first two days of the expansion were not a great experience, with many of you facing high queues or significant gameplay problems. We worked around the clock to tackle the demand issues and technical challenges, and fortunately things started looking better on Saturday. While millions of you were able to get in and play over the weekend, with many already reaching level 100, others still ran into very lengthy queues, particularly on the highest-population realms.

To help address this, we’ve expanded the new instancing tech we used to improve queues on Saturday and we’re continuing the process of applying that to raise the capacity of all realms again. This will result in approximately double the prelaunch capacity on each realm, which should greatly reduce queue times for most realms if not eliminate queues altogether.

In recognition of the difficulties so many of you ran into when trying to play over the first few days, we're adding five days’ worth of extra time to every subscription in the Americas, Oceania, and Europe that was active as of Friday, November 14. Things are already in a much better place than they were going into the weekend, so I hope you’ll now be able to focus on having a ton of fun with this expansion.

I also hope you'll accept my apology and keep your faith in us. The support voiced by many of you as we worked through the challenges was immensely appreciated. We're extremely grateful to be part of such a passionate community. We love World of Warcraft, and we're very proud of this expansion, so stumbling out of the gates like this was very disappointing for all of us.

On behalf of the World of Warcraft development team, as well as everyone at Blizzard, thank you all again for your patience and understanding.

See you in Draenor.

Followeri i Garrioson Misije XP, Patch 6.0.3 Hotfixevi - 17 Novembar, Blue Teme

Followeri i Garrioson Misije XP
Originally Posted by Blizzard

When Followers are below a mission’s level, they get a reduced percentage of the mission XP as well as any bonus XP earned.

Followers that are 1-2 levels below the mission level:
  • The Follower’s level number is displayed in orange, meaning they only receive 50% of the mission XP and bonus XP.
    Followers that are 3 or more levels below the mission level:
  • The Follower’s level number is displayed in red, meaning they only receive 10% of the mission XP and bonus XP.
    Before a hotfix that was implemented at 5:52pm PST, followers in red received 0% of the mission XP; and we felt that was not what we wanted since the UI didn’t indicate that was the case.

Note that while level 90 missions may only award ~100XP, level 100 missions award much more, closer to the range of ~1500XP. So 10% of that is still a good amount for a level 90 Follower, even if they won't be doing a great job at getting the bonus loot until they gain some combat experience.

We’d love to continue hearing feedback on how it feels to level Followers, what missions are available, and how these new numbers feel.

Obtaining it, yes, as it's only usable in War Games. Using it to bypass ilevel requirements is not. (CM_Lore)

just a thought: scale the 680 rings back to 640 for anyone without the quest completed
We're exploring options, too early to say at this point. (Rygarius)

Doesn't seem to mention the change made to the Smuggler's Run loot table - no resource boxes any more?

Also, since I've seen this come up a few times, the currency turn-in quests for the Tempered Seals of Fate that are used for Draenor bonus rolls are not available until the first raid zone, Highmaul, unlocks during the week of December 2. Take your time and enjoy Draenor; no need to worry about having to stockpile bonus rolls ahead of time. (Official Forums)

Queues and Character Transfers
Just to answer some of the people who are unhappy with the queues, I don't have any specific answers I can give on Free Character Moves as of yet. I'll repeat what I said in the US forums that we are working to make sure realms are stable and performing well before we do further evaluations on what FCMs would look like should we do them. i.e. Which realms would need them and where would the moves be too, etc. I don't want to promise anything at this time, but we're not unaware of the concerns and frustrations people are experiencing with queues.

We've seen an increase in performance overall and have many more people playing and able to play than the past couple of days. We realize there are still queues to contend with, but we haven't walked away or called things "done" as of yet.

Neth, you guys really are not doing much to alleviate any issues. It would be nice if at least one of you would come out and admit your too cheap to pay for the proper hardware to handle the work load and feel like it wont be needed in the long run. Our short term discomfort (until subscriptions fall off after launch) is an acceptable trade off for blizz. Seriously, someone from blizz just come out and admit you guys messed up and this issues will subside once the player base decreases. I bet you would have a lot less upset players if you just told the truth. Being lied to and screwed over is worse than just being screwed over.
There are no lies being perpetrated in regard to the efforts being made on our end to alleviate issues. I know people like to think this is a truth and it seems really odd to cling to that. There is a very high demand by people to play the game. We are making efforts to support that demand in a variety of ways and we've been making great progress. We're still very early in the day today, so we will continue to be watching the effect of these changes once we get into the more populous times for the realms. Seriously. The efforts or the teams on this end are constant and ongoing at all levels. They are incredibly dedicated to doing what they can to get everyone into the game and playing the great content we have waiting for them.

I'm sorry you are frustrated. I want nothing more than for you to not be frustrated. Hopefully today will go better for you and many others. High population realms may be problematic when it comes to queue times, but we are making efforts to get more people in than hanging in the queues. Our efforts aren't stopping any time soon. No one is sitting on their laurels (I'm not sure why you'd want to really.) People will accuse us of many many things I'm sure. Conspiracies arise that just aren't true and there isn't much we can do to counter them than to keep working toward improving the experiences of the community that is here to play. We are very seriously continuing to monitor all of the changes we've made and their impact. Things have improved a great deal and we will continue to make improvements where we can. That's all I can really say. Some will believe and others won't. That isn't going to make us throw up our hands and give up. We wouldn't do that. (Official Forums)

Stable, yes. Sufficient, no. It's a simple matter of Blizzard blindly putting it's pocketbook ahead of its customers. Money > Rep
There is no problem I've had in the last 72 hours I could fix with money. If there was I'd do it. Actually not true: there was one, and we had more blades next restart -- problem not as simple (kurtismcc)
One cant fix problemshappening now with money, but better preparations could have been made. 2 hour queue time still.
Some servers are very high pop. We know this is a problem, but problem can't be solved with more hardware. We are still working on other solutions. (kurtismcc)
The calibre of those solving problems now doesn't absolve Blizzard's lack of preparation.
You choose your perspective on such matters. Mistakes were made, but there's no grand money conspiracy. (kurtismcc)
Blizzard had a good idea on the amount of people returning from expansion sales
Sales does not equal engagement, and engagement drives concurrency. We have a very engaging expansion, and I'm happy to have worked on it.
but your network should be able to handle enough users to equal your subscriber # and then some for growth
load isn't linear - clumps are the issue like the forum post says - it's an n-squared problem (kurtismcc)
Since it was known that high pop realms would be a problem; there should have been free migrations prior to launch.
even if we'd predicted it, wouldn't have helped; most people wouldn't have seen the need to move prior to launch (kurtismcc)

As much as I hate to report it, you can mount up while moving with Ice Floes. I assume that's not intended.
We're going to allow it for now. If it becomes a problem, we'll change it back. (Celestalon)

Not even a single mention of Blood Elf models through the whole Blizzcon? If you're not doing them, tell us please.
We're doing them. Nothing else to announce until we have previews to show. (WatcherDev)

Character / Items
Who should I tweet about profession-type stuff? Looking at the cap on Apexis Crystals currently
What's the concern with the cap? That's more an item issue than professions per se. CC: @olandgren (WatcherDev)
If you could instead save up 37k or w/e then choose a slot to fill, I might actually do it
Very reasonable point - we'll discuss. We usually have at least some slush room on currency caps. (WatcherDev)

Where is our Champions Treadblade? My living mounts legs hurt.
Paulie in Old Town, Stormwind Cost: 100 000 Gold (TerranGregory)

Are there any plans to make 5v5 skirmishes?
No. Skirmishes is meant to be an introduction to the arena experience. Considered only doing 2v2 but know people would want 3s. (holinka)

combat log event "encounter_start" happens in pve any chance of having this in pvp, to enable accurate arena/bg combat logging?
yes we have it on our todo list (holinka)

Does MMR get Zero'ed at the beginning of each season along with the Character rating?
Your MMR gets reset when you gain a level but not between seasons. (holinka)
is there a design reason for this? Starting season on 1500 MMR win 100 lose 30 would you have the same final CR as 2k MMR start?
We don't think resetting MMR each season is good for the game. High rated will stomp over low rated. No value in that. (holinka)

Hey Holinka, will PvP Items have sockets? And what about tertiar stats?
Not at launch. Perhaps down the road. (holinka)
Ah thank you^^. I don't know what that means"down the road". Do you mean at the start of WoD Season 1 on 2nd of december?
It means, we haven't decided if or when. (holinka)

Ever thought of a battleground dota/smite style, 5vs5 3way?
Yes but it's a very odd fit for WoW and there are a lot of other games (including Heroes) doing it. Doesn't feel natural. (holinka)

Unfortunately Jaina is too far gone. Corrupted just like everyone else in the alliance.
Not at all, man. Jaina doesn't trust the Horde to self-govern... Can you blame her? (DaveKosak)

In WoD timeline: Gul'dan the only one with fel energy/green skin? Possible exposure changes rest? Or staying brown?
Gul'dan won't stay down for long - he'll find other fools. I mean, followers. (DaveKosak)

I said that the Kirin Tor's ability to assert control over how the alliance uses magic has waned over time. (craig_amai)
That doesn't mean it's gone entirely. We haven't seen it come to a head in a while amidst other crises. (craig_amai)
Thank you for the clarity. Could you take more questions on this? Are you able to say more on the topic?
I keep up with lore, but my focus is more on gameplay and world. Mr. Copeland will typically be a bit stronger with the lore-fu. (craig_amai)

Any chance Blood Elf Paladins can get a red casting animation, or anything other than the yellow hands? Blood Knight love?
Part of your lore is giving up the blood aspect/draining the Naaru and embracing the light, no? (Muffinus)

WoD Stability Update, Novi Boosted Karakteri i Zaobilaženje Skill Procesa, Problem sa Garrisonom

We’re continuing to work toward greater realm stability and address the service issues impacting latency. Our current biggest hurdle is the concentration of players in specific areas and zones, and an unexpected effect of that concentration on the realm stability. We’re continuing to maintain a lowered realm population cap to help with the stability, which is resulting in increased queue times. We’re seeing some increase in individual zones drop which are causing localized player disconnections as we get into primetime in the Americas, and if someone is disconnected they will quite likely run into a queue to log back in. Work is progressing on improving realm stability through fixes targeting individual in-game issues, as well as on the backend game and network services.

[Update] 8:00 pm PST

Our top priority continues to be service issues impacting performance and long wait times on North American realms. We recently pushed a server change that caused disconnects, and as a result login services are heavily impacted as players attempt to (re)log in to the game. If you experience issues logging in, please be patient and wait a few minutes before trying again. We’re continuing to work to address other stability and latency issues as well as make additional improvements in game performance.

[Update] 9:00 p.m. PST

We’ll be performing maintenance on all NA realms beginning at 5 a.m. PST in order to address issues with realm stability. We anticipate this process will last approximately 4 hours and appreciate your patience during this time.

Once you go through the Dark Portal and as you progress through Tanaan Jungle, more spells and abilities will be unlocked. Once you’ve completed Tanaan Jungle, you should have most of your spells and abilities (for level 90) available to you. The remaining will be unlocked shortly after the beginning quests in Frostfire Ridge (for Horde) or Shadowmoon Valley (for Alliance). This system has been designed to help players who have newly boosted to ease into their new character.

If you’re a veteran player and are absolutely sure that you want to skip this progression of spells and abilities, you can either swap specs or queue for an instance. This will unlock the remaining spells and abilities for you.

While these restarts progress, this may result in characters not being able to phase into the Garrison, or become temporarily stuck while phasing in. This is a temporary effect and should resolve as these services return.

We're continuing to look into other issues outside of this impact on Garrison access, including realm latency and its affect on gameplay and questing elements. We've implemented dozens of hotfixes over the last few hours, and will be continuing to work toward resolution of any outstanding issues.

It doesn't matter if the garrisons are working when we can't even quest do to the ridiculous lag.
The majority of our fixes are aimed at issues that are resulting in latency. Latency itself is not a singular issue, but is the effect of many compound issues--a few of which are related to Garrisons.

Warlords Launch Mini - FAQ
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Source)
I've seen a handful of questions with regards to what happens when Warlords of Draenor launches, so here's a brief FAQ that should hopefully clear up questions.

When will the launch of the game happen for my time zone/region?
Warlords of Draenor will launch in:

  • Europe at 12:00 a.m. CET on Thursday, November 13
  • North America (US) at 12:00 a.m. PST (1:00 a.m. Mountain, 2:00 a.m. CST, 3:00 a.m. EST) on Thursday, November 13
  • Oceanic will launch at the same time as the US.
  • Korea at 12:00 a.m. KST on Tuesday, November 18
  • Taiwan at 12:00 a.m. CST on Tuesday, November 18
  • China at 12:00 a.m. CST on Tuesday, November 18

How do I get to Draenor?
When the clock hits midnight (or whatever respective time zone you're in), you'll see the following things happen:
  • A server message (yellow text in your chat window) will be displayed, signaling the launch of Warlords of Draenor!
  • If you've already upgraded your account to Warlords of Draenor, a quest will popup in your quest log, directing you to the Blasted Lands. You do not need to be in a major city to receive this quest. If you haven't upgraded your account, you won't be able to receive the quest or venture in Draenor until you do.
  • Once you get to Blasted Lands, speak to Khadgar outside the Dark Portal to head to Draenor!
  • Note: you don't need to be online at midnight to get the quest, it'll be waiting for you whenever you do decide to login.

Do I need to install Warlords of Draenor or use the install disc?
If you're already playing on retail realms, you have all the files you need to play Warlords of Draenor - no further downloads or installs are required. If you haven't updated your WoW client to version 6.0.3 yet, you can either just run the Battle.net app to do so, or install the game using the Game Disc DVD (if you bought a Box Copy of Warlords of Draenor).

Do i need to logout at midnight before I start leveling?
Nope! If you've already upgraded your account to Warlords of Draenor, you won't need to do anything! You can always double check your account status by logging into the Account Management page at https://us.battle.net/account/management/
  • What happens if I boost a character to level 90 after Warlords of Draenor launches?
  • If you haven't upgraded your account to Warlords of Draenor yet, your boosted character will be placed in Blasted Lands.
  • If you've upgraded your account to Warlords of Draenor, boosted characters are placed directly in Tanaan Jungle.

Will I be able to invite a friend to my realm and quest together, vise versa? didn't see anything pertaining to this answered, would be nice to know.
Yup! You'll be grouped together on the same realm.

What happens if someone boosted a character, he's in Blasted Lands with the Iron Invasion quest chain but he can't login to play again till after WOD goes live?
The quest chain actually doesn't disappear when WoD launches. The Feat of Strength (and associated title) is no longer awarded, but you can still do the quests, gaining the quest rewards (gear) and the pet, Iron Starlette. So your friend would be able to continue the quest chain in Blasted Lands and unlock the rest of his abilities.
