    I'm all for Blizzard bashing, but when you apply stuff to Live servers, shit can get wacky. At least they're trying to fix stuff.

    I'm lvl 57, and did all quests till half way in Maldraxxus. I didn't encounter any problems tbh, and the xpac, till now feels great with extreme potential.
    Hope for the best that Blizz learned from past mistakes and will keep them in mind, not just acknowledge them and continue tu fk up like how a shtfest the BFA's systems were (ALT UNfriendly, gated and with azerite power-s feeling of "always missing out, always being on a catchup,corruption shtshow that made pvp at it's lowest ever and so on).

    Probably the damage effect will not interupt your HS casting.

    Immediate Extermination
    Instant
    Your healing taken is increasingly reduced. When your healing taken reaches -100%, you suffer Shadow damage until you die.

    I would turn that around and I would say it's a shame players don't do testing/reporting anymore and treat beta invites as early access/content for streams/etc.
    you can only fix bugs your testers told you about...

    Im also not shy of bashing Blizzard lately as they went full on corporative, Activision's influence grows by the day.
    However, i must totally agree with you.
    Streamers can use in their defense that blizzard kept shifting things and that they were tired of leveling over and over again. And that can be true to some extend.
    They used their early access to actually promote them self and make "guides" and "tier lists" most of which paid no attention to actual bugs. Kuddos to those which actually did.
    Its also Blizzard's fault to some extend with not having (or including) "influencers" in their FIRST wave of Beta invites. They should have been invited mid-beta, when game was in playable state. We lived trough MONTHS of "the sky is falling" videos just to end up with expansion in quite good state and nice pace.

    And kuddos to Blizzard to doing massive work during Covid and reduced efficiency. So far expansion is gorgeous with primase of being a bit toxic (literally) in few dungeons on higher keys.
    I agree that release date is not best one there is with holidays around, but ey, its WAY better than still being stuck in BfA.

    I would rather take full page of bluepost fixes than another day in BFA.
    Losing Legion borrowed power hurt badly, but man getting rid of BFA borrowed power never felt better.

    if you would even be in a position to do that as a developer, developers would do it. but most things are discovered when there are people experiencing them.

    you cannot change a gargantuan, one million code lines bearing monster of a game without having small problems.

    on my first playthrough i didn't encounter anything gamebreaking. dunno how you can see the fixing as a problem.

    Male gilnean guards had female voices? Wonder how that happened.

    As for immediate extermination, how do you get rid of that debuff? I was in the middle of doing a campaign quest, but I need selfheals to be able to do the quest. So I just had to stop playing. Does it go away after a week or what?

    Your Eye of the Jailer resets with the daily reset.

    I reported the same bug in Exile's Reach for months that still made it onto the pre-patch before getting hotfixed after release.

    Blizzard has become notorious for not taking care of little bugs like you've seen being hotfixed since Shadowlands was released.

    I am still experiencing this issue and have no redeemed souls. I have been locked out of doing ANYTHING on my main since I got to the quest "Home Improvement". Blizzard has not responded directly to me to try to fix this. The patch DID NOT FIX MY ISSUE.

    Did they fix the issue in revendreth where you can't get another quest to progress the side story for the achieve? I believe the npc doesn't give the next quest to kill lord chamberlain in the dungeon. Can't finish the achievement due to this

    yes. but a beta will never have live numbers. take the beta "launch" for example, which had no problems at all since there were probably only thousands of players instead of whatever the live numbers are.

    all in all these are small bugs which may occur due to strange behaviour (again, almost impossible to detect unless thousands of players engage with it) in the live environment. had a non-interactable door which worked the day before. so what. these aren't showstoppers.
