Heroes Hotfix Patch Notes - February 18th 2015

Iron Docks Quest Chain Delayed
Bashiok confirmed that we won't see the Iron Docks quests in Patch 6.1. Keep in mind that it was never actually announced for Patch 6.1, a sign of it just happened to show up in a PTR build.

Lunar Festival
This year adds a few new items and modifies some older items. Be sure to check out the full guide on Icy Veins.

The Armor Casings for heirloom upgrades aren't in just yet, but they should go in with Patch 6.1 next week, so be sure to start saving up Lunar Coins.

Sounds like potential math fail on our end; thanks, will investigate. (WatcherDev)

Hello! We are having alot of problems with receiving 0 tokens from Blackhand kills. Ingame GM's say its RNG loot, what can we do?
(1) Blackhand currently offers a chance at universal set tokens-not a guarantee-with more chances as raid size increases. (WarcraftDevs)
(2) We’re discussing changing this, but not until next raid timer to avoid any advantage for kills later in the week. (WarcraftDevs)

Darkmoon Faire Race
with the shore strider if you mess up once it is impossible to get it done in 11 tolls & chances is it will come from the spring.
The races get progressively more advanced as time goes on. In months 2-4, you'll get more powers and more powerups. (Muffinus)

Reputation / Questing
some reps in WoD can't be increased from 0/1000 exalted to 999/1000. It's a minor thing but will we see it changed?
Appreciate the report! This bug is fixed in Patch 6.1. (WarcraftDevs)

Garrisons
Will Grand Master Draftsman achievement become account wide for 6.1?
No plans to make that account-wide at this time. (WarcraftDevs)

Hi! The Transmog-Ethereals in my Storehouse keeps moving around, interrupting my transmog-sessions. Could you make them stop?
They will be stationary in Patch 6.1. (WarcraftDevs)

Is there a reason my Tailoring Emporium vendors keep living in my salvage yard? Annoying to keep looking for them.
The Salvage Yard won't attract tailors anymore in 6.1. (WarcraftDevs)

Can we get some consistency with garrison mine carts? Horde respawn every 24 hours, Alliance respawn at 3 am.
This will be addressed in 6.1; mine carts will work the same for both Horde and Alliance once the patch goes live. (WarcraftDevs)

InstaDoom Mod
If you can't wait for the patch next week you can get your selfie fix with InstaDoom, a mod for Doom that adds a selfie stick and filters.

    Just awful.

    So now we have proof it was supposed to be in 6.1 nice. Something to worry about, if they are putting out the daily hub in 6.2 doesn't that diminish the chances of a raid in that patch? Considering it's in a different zone.

    Hahaha.. The only content Blizzard is able to deliver these days is making it easier to make fun of their fan boys and die-hard defenders.

    I'm laughing my ass off currently...

    If 6.1 is just the content they couldn't get at launch makes sense new content go to 6.2. In line with WoD, no surprises.

    On the bright side, 6.2 is looking pretty good. Iron docks quests and tanaan (right?). Too bad 6.1 still looks boring :P

    If 6.2 is just the stuff they couldn't get at 6.1, makes sense to just cut 6.3. They should up my sub while they're at it.

    There is no confirmation of Tanaan Jungle being in 6.2. We don't even know if they will finish the Iron Docks quests for 6.2.

    What are we even going to do at the Iron Docks after Blackrock Foundry is beaten? At least in 6.1 it would have been somewhat concurrent with the raid, but 6.2 will be after the raid's done.

    "Warlords of features delayed into a future patch"

    No so long ago a patch this small and so void of content would be a revision patch simply activated on a realm restart. Now they add two or three extra quests to the legendary quest chain, give it a patch number and a name like every important content addition.

    Shameful.

    Maybe prepare an invasion by ship into Tanaan Jungle.

    I guess now someone needs to update the screaming spanish guy video to show that content was cut.

    They're not even trying anymore. Just go with it.

    At this point, I just want this expansion to be over. It's been nothing but delays and disappointments.

    I don't think they have any ships though. And even if, more ships can't hurt.
