…hopefully that’s not the only problem y’all noticed with Flame Wreath.

Does this require a realm restart, or is it just not active yet? I’m still stuck at 9/30 and returning to Oribos after both relogging and exiting completely hasn’t resolved the issue.

FYI, still bugged as of 45 minutes ago.

How many so-called hotfixes does it take for you to realize LFR players do exist and at least deserve a reward give them a title or recolor of mount.

Regarding the “Crossing Fate” quest, has this fix been deployed to the Oceanic realms yet?

I’m currently stuck on 9/30, and have been to/from Oribos, multiple times.

All help gratefully accepted.

Crossing Fate still not fixed.

Teleported to Oribos, flown to Oribos, logged out and back in, exited game. Tried everything and still not fixed.

You deserve it? Why?

Today’s hotfix update:

AUGUST 4, 2022

Dungeons and Raids

  • Mythic+
    • Affixes
      • Quaking
        • Players will no longer be damaged by Quaking during Skulloc’s Gronn Smash in Iron Docks and during Grimrail Depot cutscenes.
    • Grimrail Depot
      • Skylord Tovra
        • Fixed an issue that could prevent Skylord Tovra from appearing once conditions were met.

Items and Rewards

  • Fixed an issue where the spell effect on Ring of Collapsing Futures was scaling incorrectly.

So do a normal

The quaking related hotfix on Skulloc is insufficient. You might not take damage during the smash, but if quaking lines up to end right after the smash ends, you are still stacked up, and you still die to quaking.

I’m not sure on the best way to handle this, but a suggestion would be for quaking to not be able to trigger while Gronn Smash is active, or if quaking has already triggered, to be cleared (if that is possible in the system). Alternatively, a short term immunity following Gronn Smash would be reasonable, even if slightly unintuitive.

Kara tuning when?

The Oribos fix for the Crossing Fate bug still isnt working and it looks like Blizzard has given up trying to fix it that way.

The only fix now is to re-kill the bosses that you didnt get credit from. But, for me, I dont remember what bosses didnt give credit so now Im going to have to re-do the entire raid.

Awesome.

Well done update Blizzard, totally not rushed out the door and completely alleviates any fears about Dragonflight.

They can’t design content that stacks your group in M+…or either make it so quaking doesn’t trigger during these times, but that might be difficult to code. I wish they fixed tazavesh quaking as well. During the menagerie boss I’ve had a full wipe because quaking went off right as everyone was pulled together. Mailboss can also suck. If quaking lines up with a soak and that person doesn’t have an immune you are screwed. Blizzard has to stop designing situations with 0 counterplay. The best play can’t be “let that person die and battle rez them” …that’s terrible design.
