World of Warcraft developers are working on changes for rare spawns and the Battle for Nazjatar

Oops?

The launch of patch 8.2 for World of Warcraft was just about a week ago, but it turns out there are some lingering issues and balance problems. For example, even after all the time spent testing on test server, there’s a rather notable issue with rare spawns dying too quickly for players to even tap them, resulting in a number of planned changes. Quests requiring a rare kill have been reduced to just one kill, health and scaling values are being improved for rares, and world quest bosses will no longer falsely display with the silver dragon border.

Similar problems exist with the PvP event, Battle of Nazjatar, which was being pointed out as having a serious problem with lopsided matchups on roughly the same day that the patch launched. To address this, the event will now only start when roughly equal numbers of both Alliance and Horde players in War Mode are near the event; failing that, players will instead be treated to a PvE event to take out a number of elite Naga guards. The event is also available to players not in War Mode, so everyone can enjoy taking on the Naga.

There’s been quite a number of issues with this patch including dailies that make you dislike seeing your fellow players, even of the same faction. To Blizzard’s credit, they’ve addressed some of the more egregious problems.

Now, if only one day we could get cross-faction mob tagging, in PvE at least.

…personally I haven’t really seen much of my fellow players with all the somehow agro’d Naga mobs trying to eat my face. :(

Ugh, yes, the companions. I would not even bother with them if leveling them up was not required to advance quests & unlock stuff.

Curious only in that you mentioning have not seen much fellow players made me think to ask since i’m not going to pretend i know why

I started a whole new life in wow on an RP server and leveling everything from scratch, everyone said go with either Moon Guard, Wyrmrest Accord, or Emerald Dream not one to ever follow the crowd i went with Earthen Ring, had any of the others resonated with me i would have not being different for the sake of being different but to the point lol

I rarely run into anyone anywhere and it is f’in awesome, pretty much makes wow playable to me (thx again IronSalamander8 .) and any peeps i do meet are obv adults, so could not be more perfect, since i’m leveling from scratch i’m not following anything as in latest greatest news much, just focusing on rebuilding a wow life atm but anyway

Out of the blue… and this is my question :)

On the weekend Orgrimmar (only Saturday i think) was absolutely packed with players, it was like a classic beta, way over crowded, then next day ghost town again, what or why was that?

Just to be clear, this wasn’t a pointed criticism at social dynamics of other players in WoW…or lack there of. Rather at overly attuned content that are thick with mobs. >.<

Off topic, but Earthen Ring has been my home for 12+ years and I love the folks on that server :)
