    There are so many more thing bugged...

    - Anduin is not on his throne so you can't do several quests (such as cloak or Twilight Highlands prequest)
    - When you buy a weapon from your class order hall, level, log out, and log back in; the weapon you have equipped outlevels you which makes it useless.
    - quests popping up while in a timewalking mode from other xpacs which instantly fail when you try to pick them up.
    - cloak to remove corruption still usefull, while corruption is out of the game
    - corruption effects still show in grey, very misleading.

    Just a few tings I encountered. Have played since vanilla and never seen so many bugs in a patch.

    So many bugs make you understand why they delayed Shadowlands.

    The weapom part was hot fixed to require 45 intentionally. But yeah, who knew all those q&a testers that were laid off were needed? The blizz we knew and loved is long gone.

    They literally just laid off another 300 in France so they went on strike.....

    I don't even blame them. Fuck Activision and their shitty profit chasing margins. People are actually upset as fuck right now in France because of this. Imagine firing long time employees in the middle of a global pandemic. Disgusting.

    But you're right. Blizzard is long gone. It's Activision-Blizzard. Anyone who thinks they aren't pulling Blizzards strings at this point is delusional. Anyone who thinks the recent 800 and 300 firings weren't an Activision call needs to get their head tested.

    Imagine how the expansion is going to launch. Delayed or not it's going to be a shitshow.

    Yeah but the game has never before had a character level squish and a rescaling / revamp of the entire 1-120 questing and dungeon experience. The impact is massive. I'm sure we can all comprehend why there's so many bugs, even if we don't like it.

    Lol no?

    They had Public and Beta testing for this. There's zero excuse for a patch to be this messy. Stop defending crap like this already. They aren't your friend. They aren't gonna send you a little package with a free pet for defending them. And I'll say that for any fucking game that launches in such a mess because I've experienced them.

    A few bugs is understandable. This mess isn't. Games without PTRs and Public Betas launch in better states.

    Or maybe we don't all have the comprehension, I take it back. This is not a defense. Im not sure how someone can fail to understand what the changes mean. There are always bugs, there is no such thing as bug free software. The bigger the changes, the more bugs you have. Your testers will never fully capture all your bugs, because the final product goes into the hands of so many more peopke who do things in a miriad ways different than your testers did. Yeah, go be outraged if you want, insult them and anyone else who isn't massively bothetered by revamped questing bugs. Are you actually doing anything? Put in tickets? Unsub? Or are you just living ok with it while you trash it, since it actually doesnt bother you enough to do something about it.

    Those were laid off to increase people in development to fix more bugs.

    There arent half as many bugs now after patches compared to before.

    Happy to see them fix the Low Road quest. Reported that many times since early PTR.

    You seriously need to stop this nonsense about "Evil activision is controlling Blizzard". They have been the same for 10 years now.

    Activision is equally a part of all the good things about the game as well.

    The people laid of are basically people in marketing etc and has nothing to do with development and bugs. There are smoother and smoother patches and less and less bugs coming out.

    And considering former and current employees have anonymously said otherwise think I'll take their word over someone rabidly defending Blizzard. Thank you for your time.

    I have been in all PTRs since vanilla and never seen so many few bugs compared to the amount of changes. You arent even slightly biased?

    You will take any word that supports your own narrative. Even anonymously.

    Doesn't it even seem slightly more interesting to care about facts?

    What are you on about? I have tested all PTRs and the amount of bugs now is nothing compared to how it used to be.

    This is absolutely not new. What's also not new is everyone thinking the bugs and stuff are worse than ever.

    Just a silly little question.
    Mages who are not yet high enough level to fly can now take a portal to the abandoned Kirin Tor camp during the quest "The Deadwind Site".
    If it is true that flight ruins the on ground experience, why does this need to be changed?

  16. #16
    Worgen players are now able to save changes to their Human forms.
    Are human and worgen forms able to use the barbershop independently now? Or does changing one still change the other?

    I find that hard to believe. The problem is that if yuo choose to play through Legion you get artifact weapons at level 11, that don´t level with you. Meanign that you´re still playing with those at level 49 as no weapons drop in Legion content. Or do artifact weapons now level with the player?

    Biased towards what? There's just a lot of bugs, independently from how many changes there are or whatsoever. I think you're the one being biased towards Blizz. "There is so much new content so there canbe bugs" doesn't go for me. I'd rather have less content that actually works properly.

    Darkmaul Citadel quest is still bugged. I cannot queue for the dungeon, all I get is a message “you have not selected a valid slot” or something like that and the PG is 100% stuck there. Hope they will fix soon, I cannot believe such a bug could make its way live.

    Hi, I had the same issue, but I was able to select the dungeon after disabling ElVui.
