3/4 Green Dragon Spawn Bug Still Active

My server Arugal (OCE) originally had 3/4 Green Dragons spawn last week where the Hinterlands boss didn’t spawn. This was then fixed by Devs force spawning all the dragons again.

However, then layers were introduced. The Green Dragon on Hinterlands layer 2 did not spawn with all the other Green Dragons on layer 2 after layering was implemented.

It has been now been 48 hours without a Hinterlands layer 2 Green Dragon spawn. This is well outside the normal spawn window for a “reset” spawn.

Possible reasons include;

  1. Hinterlands inherited layer 1 spawn timer despite all the other layer 2s spawning
  2. Layer 2 was copied from Tuesdays maintenance which originally had the Hinterlands no spawn bug
  3. The bug was never fixed in the first place.

Reason 1 is bad because it means the dragons are not synced properly.
Reason 2 is bad because it potentially means that both Layer 1 and/or Layer 2 will continue to not spawn four Green Dragons after this Tuesdays maintenance.

This bug could also not be limited to just my server but could be affecting all servers on all layers.

The other reason why this is significant is we don’t yet know if the respawn for Green Dragons is from the first Green Dragon killed or the Last (third/fourth). Since they all spawn at the same time.

If it’s from the last Green Dragon killed and one dragon continues to not spawn, then we might never get a second wave of Green Dragon spawns. Only 3/4 spawning once every reset for each layer.

Not sure why this was moved GD but i’m going to assume it was a mistake;

Update after maintenance:
Once again only 3 dragons have spawned. The fix that went live last week has not propagated through the weekly maintenance (if it ever worked at all).



Just had the same issue on a single layer server. All three spawns other than Hinterlands did not spawn when the other three did.

Ashenvale, Feralas, Duskwood (Ysondre, Emeriss, Tearar) all spawned simultaneously this evening on Bloodsail Buccaneers (Single layer), but no HInterlands.

Bloodsail Buccaneers saw no sunday/monday world dragon respawns last week either.

Just had all green dragons but ashenvale spawn on a layer on Benediction. As of now only 3 total. :frowning:

3 of 4 on both layers Arugal (OCE)

only 3 of 4 on westfall spawned

Only 3/4 spawned on Anathema. No hinterlands.

Same here. Just had three dragons spawn, no fourth.

Thanks for the reports about this, everyone. We are currently investigating this issue.


same thing is happening to old blanchy us, 3/4 dragons always spawning and its not in ashenvale.

The timer cycles after the last one dies. Since We only could kill 3 the timer wont reset. We wont get another spawn this server reset without blizz intervening.


The same thing happened on Kirtonos on Tuesday night: Emeriss, Taerar, and Lethon spawned in Duskwood, Hinterlands, and Ashenvale, but Ysondre did not spawn in Feralas.

Any update? It’s been two days and you already know they won’t spawn again until you spawn the last one and it dies. I

Checking in on this as well. The entire server community is concerned that we won’t see another spawn during the respawn window even though we killed all the available dragons (3). Can we get an update?

I didn’t even notice this until just now. Layer 2 isn’t even randomizing the spawns. It looks like whichever dragons you got on Layer 2 will keep repeating.


The server Anathema is also experiencing this issue. Only 3/4 dragons have spawned in the last two spawn cycles. Specifically, there has been no dragon spawning in the Hinterlands in both times. Also, both times it was Taerar that did not spawn.

This right here. Also on Anathema. Confirming that same dragon spawned at each location as Tuesday with no spawn at Hinterlands.
