I had no idea about this until about the fourth time I killed him, someone finally said something. Unfortunately we weren’t able to communicate to the Horde character wailing away on him to stop in time.

Not sure where to put this but i have yet to see any reputation rewards for Korthia in the covenant command table…is this intentional or are they coming later?

Is this going to increase weekly?

Even at 22k it’s eventually going to force players that don’t want to dump it into catch up gear to dump it into catch up gear.

JULY 7, 2021

  • Fixed an issue where defeating the bosses on Floor 5 were not providing credit for Touring Torghast.
    • Developers note: Unfortunately, this fix is not retroactive and you may have to run the Layer again to receive credit if it is the highest Layer you can complete. However, finishing any higher Layers will also complete the achievement criteria for the Layers below them, so there’s no need to enter the lower Layers again if you choose not to do so.

Quests

I’m crossing my paws for a slight buff to worgen racials :wolf: 5% snare reduction passive… Something? 1.5 min cd instead of 2 min cd of darkflight? Anything really.

Also another class for worgen to play as would be great. I don’t see why they can’t be monks. They even have the animations for the class

And if helm mogs and now the new glasses mogs didn’t clip through worgen’s ears that would be great. Or if glasses could be designed for worgen so they only get the lenses and not some strange earpieces running up their faces

All of this would be greatly appreciated :wolf: :heart:

It is that hotfix time of the day!

      • Fixed an issue where Dragging Chains and Desolation Beam could target the same player when there are other available targets.

Excellent! Thank you for this

Next Tazavesh Mailroom Mayhem plz :slight_smile: Or at least give a hint like “Works as intended, git gud”.

We are just gonna ignore Tazevesh??? The Mailroom Mayhem boss is bugged so bad people are going 4 dps and tank and out dpsing the mechanic to get past it. The grand Menagerie has a bug that when you die NO ONE CAN RELEASE.

ZERO COMMUNICATION IS NOT OK!

Can you just do away with the timer for those of use who have no desire to rush through content? We would like to get our cinder ash and move up to more difficult levels, but we don’t like to be rushed.

Sometimes people DC and we have to wait for them, sometimes the pizza man arrives at the door, sometimes people have to take a phone call.

Thank you

Oh and also, can you fix the colors in the new raid so that effects that are placed on the ground are more noticeable. I have a difficult time seeing dark on dark, and some of the effects seem to be be that way in the dark parts of the raid.

No Painsmith Raznal nerfs? He’s extremely overtuned. 30k raidwide damage combined with a constantly 1.3k dot and overlapping spikes and balls is pretty crazy. The balls also need to have their hitboxes doubled since Melee have to be damn near right on top of them to hit for some reason.
