Yesterday, Blizzard announced that it had made a change to World of Warcraft’s Azerite Armor cache rewards from Emissary quests, which was intended to allow the armor contained in the caches to scale up to item level 370 depending on the character’s average item level. Unfortunately, however, something seemed to be amiss, as players reported receiving armor caches that were well below their average item levels.
Today, Community Manager Lore stopped by the game’s official forums to provide an update on the situation, saying that the team has identified “a strange behavior where a player’s loot history could be inaccurate depending on the loot specialization they had selected,” which apparently caused the aforementioned issue, and that the devs “have a hotfix currently in testing” to correct it. In addition, Lore says that the devs have decided that “the requirements for the 370 caches were a little too high initially,” and so they are “going to lower the average item level threshold required to see 370 Azerite Armor in Emissary caches slightly in another upcoming hotfix.” The team is aiming to have both hotfixes implemented “later today.”
In other news, the third wing of Uldir, Heart of Corruption, is now open in Raid Finder, which grants LFR players access to the final set of bosses, including the final boss, the Blood God G’huun. Be warned, however, as WoWHead’s Ketspooky reports in a tweet that there is an issue with the new quest that tasks players with defeating G’huun:
PSA: Careful when doing the new quest where you need to slay Ghuun to complete. When you use the item it seems to consume it but no credit. You need to stay in group, abandon quest, teleport out, get quest, then back in and use item on him again.
Until @WarcraftDevs fix it.
