Pet Battles

Player versus Player

  • Fixed an issue that caused Fire Mages’ Conflagration (Talent) to interfere with PvP diminishing returns on enemy targets.

October 4, 2019


  • Rogue
    • Assassination
      • Fixed an issue that caused the tooltip of Fan of Knives to display an incorrect amount of Combo Points.

October 2, 2019


  • Heart of Azeroth
    • Blood of the Enemy, Artifice of Time, and Sphere of Suppression Rank 2 now requires 10,000 Honor (was 15,000 Honor) and Rank 3 now requires 30,000 Honor (was 50,000 Honor).
      • Developers’ note: We fixed a bug that incorrectly allowed Honor rewarded from quests and mercenary mode bonuses to contribute toward the “Battlefield Brawler” and “Battlefield Tactician” achievements required to unlock these Essences. To account for the quests and mercenary mode rewards no longer contributing credit toward these achievements, we have reduced the Honor amount necessary to earn these Essences. Rank 4 for these Essences will remain unchanged. Players who are now at or above the new Honor value will need to earn some Honor for the achievement to update.

(Kaivax) pinned #2


Fix warlock pets reeeeee

(Angel) #4

What about Echo of Garrosh Hellscream for the allied orc quest. Entering the scenario breaks your item levels (I think mine all became 10) so I only had 42000 hp’s . As well, when you die you can’t enter the instance to get to your body but instead have to accept res sickness.


How about fixing the healing spec imbalance of Disc priests and Holy pally’s they have over everyone else in raids?


Lesser soul fragments are misbehaving! Where’s the fix for that?


That Druid line should also include fixing melee sounds.

(Angel) #8

Just tried the Echo of Garrosh again after the latest reset. Still puts my item level at 10 and his basic attacks go through my mage shield. Obviously I get creamed… Been happening since the 8.2.5 update.

This makes it impossible to unlock the Mag’har now… :disappointed_relieved:

I cant get into 25H/N of the Firelands at all. Can we get a fix please asap.


Any update on Warlock’s Felhunter cooldown bug??

Shown here:

(Salana) #12

25N/H version of firelands doesn’t exist anymore, neither does 10N/H. Patch 8.2.5, released last week, turned firelands into a scaling raid (not just for timewalking) similar to all the raids released since Siege of Orgrimmar. There is a normal version that operates as the old 10N/25N and a heroic version that serves as the old 25N/H. When doing the dungeon with a character that satisfies the legacy loot rules you will then receive loot as if 20 people were in the raid (since the raid is a scaling raid 10-30 people, 20 people is the average).

Here is the source for that last piece of info:

What this means is that even though you were able to get 25 people’s worth of loot before you can now only get 20. The 10 man versions of the raid (as I can remember) had the same items as the 25 man it’s just that you would get less loot since it is a smaller size. You can however now run normal and heroic versions of the raid, when before you couldn’t.


Heres one i would like to see

The Honeyback harvester is now NOT restricted to one faction !

one can only hope ya?


Im curious does Blizzard find it funny or looks at all at how it can look when you name things you don’t like as bugs. The fact that you name this merc bg thing a bug just because you dont like how people were getting honor does not mean its a bug. Restricting ways people can achieve the honor that is needed for some bad achievement, that is just forced playtime to rank up a terrible essence system. It is not a bug its just you guys restricting things you dont like that were emergent. You have done this a lot this xpac, and you wonder why people view BFA so terribly.


Fix Arcane Linguist Passive Ability for Mages, not being able to speak other Horde languages destroys my ability to RP and essentially makes my RP mage useless. Plenty of RP players speak only in there native language and My mage was a translator for parties and guilds.


Any updates on the Vicious Saddle bug?
