    Summoning

    We had to make a change to the new warlock summoning mechanic at the last second to prevent an exploit. Our apologies to all the law-abiding warlocks who have to suffer with a painful cooldown on your summon in order to fix this problem. We plan on getting the Ritual working correctly as soon as possible. You won't have to put up with a 2 minute cooldown for more than a few days. Standard caveats apply that this could change for any number of reasons, but we wanted to keep you informed of our plans at this time.


    What ever happen to the few days

    Except it wasn't, since you could summon into BG's regardless of player limit. It's gonna take some time to get it coded correctly, especially for it to be a hotfix.

    Ok, coming from an ignorant, non-programmer aspect here. Couldnt Blizz just revert to the old code for the time being? At this point I'd be happy with just the old summoning, as would my guildmates and friends.

    Re: Summoning

    As much as its an inconvenience to my guild, its somewhat refreshing to be able to tell lazy pugs to fly from Dalaran to VoA b/c my summon is on a CD and we have 10 more people to summon (which means 20m). ;D 8)

    It allows me to summon with priority (ie. someone in org with their hearth down) and leave the lazy folks a flight point away to actually make some effort.

    Although, after all is said and done, I really hope they fix it soon. The 2m CD is just an guild-wide annoyance in raids.

    Re: Summoning

    i did 25 man vault today, and there were about 8 people at the instance, and surely some1 goes "lock, summon me." i reply with, "incase u didn't know, warlock summons now have a 2 min cd. I will not summon u if u are in northrend at all, in stormwind, or near an instance that u can ghetto hearth from, and in turn be in dalaran." in reply i get like 10 wispers instantly, hey, can u burn ur first summon on me? coming from a dude in dalaran. We ended up doing 25 man vault with 17 people, and having 6 people still sitting in dalaran asking for a summon wehn boss was at 15%.

    at the point its a good bug, finally i don't have to come to a raid with 50 shards filling my bags cause i know i will burn more then 1/2 of them getting the raid there. Bad point is when ur in naxx and multiple people die in the gauntlet, or randomly hearth cause its "dire necessity" to repair their yellow armor. If it isn't red yet its still good people.

    id like it to actually work the way the planned it to, sounded pretty sweet, shocker the cool thing for a lock is broken....

    Dont allow people to Repair...Simple.

    OR. Carry repair bots. We had em in BC but people seem to have forgotten Mammoths after a wipe?
    We just dont allow people to disrupe the flow of a Raid to repair solo. ITs everyone or nothing and if you die well so be it. Got forbid you have 200 less HP and do 100 less DPS for you helmet is Red.

    The only problem with this is the gauntlet. in a group of 25 there is always 1

    Re: Summoning

    It's nice to shake awake the lazy people who are always in dalaran when they should be there already. This also wakes up my raid leader to notice behavior that's not part of just killing bosses.

    Re: Summoning

    bug is fixed in 3.0.8a that went live on us servers today

    hopefully at our servers in europe tomorrow

    Re: Summoning

    Ehrm, its not fixed in US after 3.0.8a and the additional hotfix?
    Russia isn't afraid of US dude. That's why they are sending their bombers like 60km out of your shores. Infact they give 0 fucks. They know you wont dare to touch them.

    Re: Summoning

    I just read in the EU forums that the spell is still bugged. You get the meeting stone but you can only summon people in the same area as you. Basicly, if you're inside Nax you'll only be able to summon people that are already inside Nax.

    Strangely i haven't found any mention on this in the US forums.

    Can someone confirm this is happening both in EU and US, please?

    Re: Summoning
