Kaivax commented on Have they removed WM bonus from dailies? 1 day ago

We’d like to confirm that, yes, the expected War Mode bonus for Visions of N’Zoth Daily Quests has been disabled since Thursday.

This was necessary for our team to work to quickly fix a different issue. Our top priority right now is addressing these concerns, and we expect to restore all intended functionality in the coming days.

War Mode and the bonuses granted by War Mode in all other content are unaffected.

Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.

Colateraldam:

Same issue. I am not receiving mail from AH on sold items.

Hello.

We’d like to clarify that nothing has been lost as a result of this issue. This is an issue with mail delivery, and we’re working to fix it. We currently expect that the fix is going to take a few days.

During that time, the mail you can’t see is not subject to 30 days expiry. It will only begin counting down from 30 days once we’ve fixed it so that you can see it and interact with it in your inbox.

We feel that the preventative solution is the more amicable one.
World of Warcraft Hotfixes: January 17, 2020 - WoW

Here you'll find a list of hotfixes that address various issues related to World of Warcraft: Battle For Azeroth.

Kaivax submitted Horrific Visions Rewards 3 days ago

We’d like to clarify some details about rewards from Horrific Visions. Items are awarded from Horrific Visions at the following milestones:

ObjectiveReward iLvl
Vision Boss Only 420
Vision Boss + 2 Bonus Objectives 430
Full Clear No Masks 445
Full Clear + 1 Mask 450
Full Clear + 2 Masks 455
Full Clear + 3 Masks 460
Full Clear + 4 Masks 465
Full Clear + 5 Masks 470

Each week, you can obtain each tier of rewards once, with a 100% chance to obtain the best reward that the you were eligible for on any given Horrific Vision.

For example, if on your first run of the week you clear 2 bonus objectives and defeat the Vision boss, you’ll get an iLvl 430 item. If you then repeat that run, you’ll get the iLvl 420 item that you were eligible for (because you’re no longer eligible for an iLvl 430 item until the weekly reset). If you then perform a full clear, you’ll get the iLvl 445 piece.

Please note: the presence or absence of other players in Horrific Visions does not influence the chance for an item to be rewarded. All loot tracking is personal, and a character must be alive and sane at the start of an encounter in order to receive credit.

⚠️ SPOILER ALERT ⚠️ An ancient corrup̶̧̠̘̣͐t̴̮̅̊͋̌ion has taken root across Azeroth, and an unexpected adviser off… https://t.co/k39vugdzSL

That was added in here in error. It’s been removed since Ulmath was introduced with Rise of Aszhara. Sorry for the confusion.
We’ll post about hotfixes as they happen. I can’t comment on the issue you mention specifically though right now.

Kaivax submitted Corruption Effect Hotfix Incoming 4 days ago

We’re working on a hotfix that will adjust the Infinite Stars Corruption Effect:

Items
Corruption Effects

  • Infinite Stars damage at all Corruption levels has been reduced by 25%.

This hotfix should go live in the next few hours, and will appear in our next hotfixes update tomorrow.

Bornakk commented on Auction House Issues 4 days ago

Here are some additional issues that we have identified and are actively investigating:

  • When items are returned in the mail from the Auction House, it can incorrectly contain more stacks than the displayed maximum of 16. This makes it look like some items are not being delivered. You will know if you are experiencing this if a mail appears empty but can’t be deleted.
    • To retrieve the missing items in this scenario, take out all 16 of the displayed stacks, then close and reopen the mailbox to see the rest (you may need to repeat this several times).
  • If a character buys commodities in high quantities, they may not be able to access their mail.
  • The favorites list is not saving properly.
  • We have resolved some of the issues causing the “Internal Auction Error” to pop up, but it is still occurring and we are continuing to look into it.
Kaivax commented on Temporarily Suspended until Sunday for... caches? 4 days ago

Hello.

We've removed the suspensions that were issued for repeatedly looting the Black Empire Coffer.

We hotfixed the underlying issue earlier this week. Our initial analysis suggested that there was exploitative behavior here: a series of actions that needed to be taken outside of typical gameplay in order to gain advantage. However, further investigation revealed this was not always the case. This chest could reset under innocuous or even accidental conditions.
