Runelock Chest WQ Changes

I’m not sure how long this is going to take to change, but we’ll have it noted for you in our hotfixes list.

Hotfixes: June 26, 2019

  • The total number of points required for a faction to win the Battle for Nazjatar War Mode event reduced to 3000 (was 10,000).

Quests and World Quests
  • Players will no longer need to relog to turn in the quest "Saving Corin".
  • Players can now turn in “Scouting the Pens” to Neri.

World

  • Players can no longer loiter at the teleport location for the Heart of Azeroth quest line in Highmountain.
  • Cursed items found in Nazjatar will now take longer to affect your character, and the detrimental effects have been reduced.
  • Fixed a bug where being mounted while interacting with Arcane Device would cause visual issues.
  • Prince Wiggletail is now easier to defeat.
  • Moved certain Chitterspine crabs in Bitterstone Cove that were out of line of sight behind the water wall.
  • Duration of Glimmershell Fluid reduced to 2 minutes (was 30 seconds).
  • Upon re-entering the zone, previously selected combat allies will once again join your side in Nazjatar.
  • Weeping Sanya now spawns upstairs so she no longer interferes with the puzzle World Quest in the same building.
  • Due to many harsh lessons learned from gravity, we are increasing the "Slow Fall" spell duration obtained from the top of Kal'methir Citadel from 15 seconds to 30.

    I can't say I'm sad about the runelocked chest being changed. I spent about 45 minutes there, getting every color but what I needed when I wasn't getting bumped out of the game by random mobs. I finally gave up and went to try jumpin' jellies instead, but gave up on that too because I was so annoyed by the chest one lol. I give them some credit for trying some new stuff though.

    most can see yellow, the problem is that green and orange can often be "yellow" to us too.

    i had to ask in chat, but i usually ask my kids shit like this. i was told the H looking one was yellow but fuck if i know if i was lied to.

    nobody gives a fuck about colorblind people, you fucks all color-code the world but god forbid someone say something that could be linked to anti-homosexuality in 50 moves or less

    it's time for a colorblind-pride parade and for us to fight for our rights. everyone else has done it.

    1) colorblind mode fucking sucks, it's just a shade changer and really isn't even good at that.

    2) no, colorblind glasses are a scam, they are also just shade changers

    3) a colorblind mode where the first letter of a color was in the corner of an icon's box would be great, and some games have it

    4) or just put the icon itself in the quest text, this is 2019, we can do that. give me the dev toolkit and i'll have it fixed in 5 mins

    5) they claim to be able to do surgery to fix colorblindness in monkeys. ok. maybe that's an option one day but what i've learned as "yellow" will be different and who knows if i can handle that change in my life.

    And what flashy colors will you have (or assume you have) for all your colorblind pride parades??

    Wasn't even having a problem with Runelocked. The Leylocked puzzle on the other hand, I just said nooooope and logged out.

    ... right. "Reduced".
  1. Psygon's Avatar
    Ok so you can see less colors? Restrict it to that many.

    Name of the color next to it sounds like you're too lazy to give each specific shade a name.

    Can you differentiate? Who cares if its red or silver?

    I got him to 30 hp MEH. My line up for that type of boss was kinda lacking though. It seemed doable but tough.

    I apologise but I can't help myself - what colour flag would colourblind people have for their parade?

    Or Green or whatever color the quest asked you to match. The real issue is that Blizzard got it almost right. They made sure the game used symbols in addition to colors to differentiate the runes in the game. But then the quest tracker tells you a color and doesn't give an example of that specific color rune.

    I ran a screen shot through 8 different colorblind filters that I use for accessibility in my daily work as a UI/UX Developer/Designer and there is both a hue and brightness shift that makes every one look different enough.

    In the end someone missed the final detail of adding the rune to the quest tracker. Well that and that matching five of a specific rune can take some time if you are not an expert candy crush player.

    Jumping Jellies isn't actually hard if you figure out which jellies you should jump to. I tried so many tries with what seemed like the obvious jump order, but it was a trap.

    Basically, two simple hints:
    - At the start, do not jump to the "center" jelly, instead start with the one on the left.
    - When jumping towards the first big purple jelly, turn around in the air 180°, so that the purple one sends you back, and you should immediately get to the target.

    There is way more jellies then you'll ever need, no slow ascenscion towards the target, only like 4 hops or so.
    With these tips it took me only one more try to get it.

    I thought that game was Bejeweled, since I've never played Candy Crush I wouldn't know.

    But despite the fact it took me 30 mins, and got out of it because idiots keep putting us in combat, I actually had fun, it's a shame they change it to an numb stupid game instead.. what's harde in doing many 3x ?!

    (Then again I got it by luck)
