Season 21 - Trials of Tempests - July Hotfix Update

This morning we launched a hotfix to address updates for Season 21: Trials of Tempests. Thanks to your feedback, we’ve been able to focus on audio and visual accessibility issues and the functionality of the Seasonal Theme procs. FYI, as a hotfix, you will not need to update your game. Simply exit out and re-login to grab the update.

Hotfix Notes:

• Lightning flashes will no longer occur when the seasonal effect for Lightning Breath and Tornadoes takes effect.

• Audio horns has been removed from the PC version of the game. Console versions has had horns replaced with a light drum.

• Pets can now generate stacks of the Seasonal theme.

• Players can no longer carry an ongoing Seasonal theme effect into a Greater Rift. (Lightning Breath, Meteors)

• Players can no longer carry a Seasonal theme effect to trigger outside a Greater Rift to only have it begin inside. (Tornadoes, Snowball, Fire Wave)

• Pets no longer proc the seasonal theme in set dungeons. This is to address the issues of users having issues completing set dungeons.

As the season progresses, we welcome more of your feedback and want to give a big thanks to all of you for helping us get here - See you in hell!

This might fix solo pushing, but not group play?

Too bad this does nothing to fix the way people are exploiting the stacks to clear GR150s.

Are y’all doing anything to the leaderboards or to anyone that exploited this seasonal theme?

Seem like a good start, far from perfect from what i expect!
Nice to see that you are working on this, eventhough its a fatal error to let something like this get to live. Especially since all current Bugs/Exploits were known and reported on PTR.

Next time longer PTR or just do Season Themes like this or S19! :^)

That’s the effect, not the stack saving.

n that egg there was a bird
A rare bird and a rattlin’ bird
The bird on the egg
And the egg on the bird
And the bird in the nest
And the nest on the limb
And the limb on the branch
And the branch on the tree
And the tree in the hole
And the hole in the bog
And the bog down in the valley-o

KEKW And the bog down in the valley-o
