    Flames of Xoroth bug?

    It doesn't matter what my previous demon was, it doesn't matter how recently it died, it ALWAYS pulls out my imp. Every single time. I've tested it extensively, cycling through all of my demons, and every time, it pulls out the imp. I could see this being a huge issue in a raid. Is this a bug? Has anyone else noticed this?

    Loading screens reset its "memory", and it falls back to the default pet: the Imp.

    Ah. Well, I can understand why (since reloading your UI also does a data dump of temp memory), I really wish it didn't. Too many times I've lost my voidie and summoned my damned imp lol. Thanks for the info.

    I wish they'd fix this too. If only I had 1g for every time I've used Xoroth and died watching my imp try to tank...
    Some mornings it's hardly worth chewing through the restraints.

    It's been bugged so long at this point I wish they just made Xoroth a temporary buff for an instant summon of your next pet. Then we could just macro it in with whatever pet we want.
    Warlocks aren't looking for anything logical, like money.
    They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with.
    Warlocks just want to watch the world burn.

    Yep this is infuriating and unreliable. How this hasn't been fixed in the last 3 years is just crazy.

    It's not a bug, it's just a limitation.

    If it's not working as intended then it's a bug.

    It is working 100% as intended.

    Flames of Xoroth's use case is the following: "I am in combat, my demon just got killed and I need to resummon it quickly."
    This is the only use case. So Netherspark is right, 100% working as intended.

    Flames of Xoroth
    10 Burning Embers
    Instant cast 1 min cooldown
    Requires Warlock (Destruction)
    Requires level 79
    The flames of Xoroth instantly revive your last demon.
    Not
    The flames of Xoroth instantly revive your last demon, unless you have had a loading screen in which case it will be an imp.

    Not working as intended, so is a bug. but not a huge issue if you just remember the loading screen problem.

    "Bug" implies an unexpected error. But Blizzard know about the limitation, they knew about it before they even made the spell. This is just how it works, it's the only way it can work, and it is working exactly the way they designed it to.

    Just because you're not happy with its functionality, doesn't mean it's a bug. And no matter how many times you claim so, Blizzard cannot change this without heavy alterations to hard code.

    OP and others are probably using the ability before the pet dies. If you use it once it dies, it never bugs out. Using it while its still alive, you don't technically have a previous pet so ofc its going to summon an imp

    That's not what they're doing, it "bugs" out often.
    As mentioned, there is a loading screen/memory dump limitation.

    Code:
    #showtooltip
    /stopmacro [pet:nodead]
    /cast Flames of Xoroth
    FTFY. Enjoy.
