November 12 Hotfixes - Korrak’s Revenge and Classic Updates

WoW's 15th Anniversary
  • Korrak’s Revenge
    • The amount of Timewarped Badges rewarded for winning or losing Korrak's Revenge have been doubled from 10 and 5 to 20 and 10.
    • The repeatable quests “Irondeep Supplies,” “Coldtooth Supplies,” and “More Armor Scraps” no longer reward Timewarped badges.
    • Many quests in Korrak's Revenge now are daily quests and reset daily. They are as follows: “Irondeep Supplies,” “Coldtooth Supplies,” “Towers and Bunkers,” “Capture a Mine,” “The Graveyards of Alterac,” “Armor Scraps,” “Capture a Mine,” and “Alterac Valley Graveyards.”
      • Developers’ note: While acquiring supplies from the mines and mounts for the ram and wolf riders contributes to the battle, we agree with the feedback that these can be a bit repetitive. To that end, we have converted a number of quests within the Battleground into dailies and removed the reward for the repeatable turn-ins.

WoW Classic
  • The guards in Gadgetzan, Booty Bay, and Everlook now have a significantly longer range on their ranged attacks.
    • Developers’ note: We’re seeing some players attack others by abusing line-of-sight rules in Gadgetzan. This disruption is against our Terms of Service (as it was in 2006) and we’re taking action against players who exploit this game mechanic. While this new range differs slightly from original WoW 1.12, it better enforces the authentically intended consequence of PvPing in a goblin city by challenging the attacker to fight, die, or escape the guards.
  • The Discombobulator Ray will now correctly dismount mounted enemy players.
  • Abilities that provide a damage increase to the next auto attack (e.g. Heroic Strike and Raptor Strike) will now properly break crowd control effects if the ability was queued before the crowd control was applied.
  • Corrected an issue that prevented pets from attacking a target who entered stealth after the Attack command is used.
  • Corrected an issue with the Gnomish Cloaking Device that caused it to incorrectly drop the player from combat when used.

    Capturing mines and gy's, destroying bunkers/towers, killing Gal or Bal. You know...things that help you win.

    Not like finishing objectives. I went from 110 to 113 in one AV and each ding was after we destroyed or completed something.

    You got more for finishing objectives + additional "free exp" every minute.

    Getting people to stop grinding rams and play the BG is good, but it would be better if the badges were constantly rewarded throughout the match rather than just at the end.

    I worry this change is just going to create a "meta" where the fastest way to get the mount is throwing games. People aren't gonna want to sit through 10-20 AVs when they're hours long.

    For farming the mount from Korrak's Revenge, I suggest you do one of the following:

    If you don't want to rush it, then do it over several days, doing the dailies and getting the win/loss badge bonus. Most likely you'll be able to do all the dailies in the course of one full AV (Unless you join an AV that's already in progress. Then it's still doable, but you might need a second one).

    If you absolutely NEED that ram, and you need it TODAY, then queue up, join the BG, and do the dailies, just like in my no-rush tips above. Now, though, you start doing the ram/wolf return repeatable quest (which rewards 1% completion per turn-in). It might seem slow at first, but you should already have some %s from the dailies, so it should be easier.
    I started returning rams when I was at 35-40%, after I've done the dailies and got some %s from wins/losses, and managed to complete it in a few hours (doing other stuff in between BGs). The AVs I played usually ended by the time I did ~5 turn-ins, 5 being my turn-in goal for a single game. Combined with the win/loss (10/5%) bonus that will give you 15 or 10% per game.

    Now, keep in mind that ram/wolf turn-ins have a per-game cap. That means, if you hit the cap, the quest won't be available anymore in this AV, but it will be in the next AV you join (In my last game I did 9 turn-ins and reached 99% completion when it locked out... #feelsbadman, until I got the %s for completing the BG, at least). If the AV you're currently in is nowhere close to ending when you hit the cap, you might want to leave, wait for the deserter debuff to wear-out, and join a new one. I don't think it's a d**k move, because when you leave another person will join in your place anyway. If you don't want to leave, feel free to try and push the AV to complete the win quest, or just farm some free honor. I had to desert a single AV while I farmed the mount.

    As for the Korrak quest, the Amphitheater of Anguish in Zul'Drak has Korrak as the last boss, who also gives credit for the AV quest too. I don't know if this is how it's intended to work, but if you're playing as Alliance, this might be your only chance to complete the quest, as in 100% of the AVs I've been in, Horde always gets Korrak.
