    Icecrown Citadel Progression Update

The extended length of the initial 28 day delay is simply due to the timing of the Holidays.

    In other news, the initial number of attempts to defeat the major bosses at the end of each wing of Icecrown Citadel has been increased by 5. This means you’ll have 10 attempts for Professor Putricide, 15 attempts when The Crimson Halls are available, then 20 when the Frostwing Halls becomes attackable.
    Halls of Reflection Disconnect Issue Resolved
    Let me be the first to say "yay!". You can hug your local Gamemasters for taking the time to resolve this issue every time it was possible.
    [blizzquote="Bornakk;http://blue.mmo-champion.com/1/21723843673-halls-of-reflection-disconnect-issue-resolved.html]We have recently implemented a fix that allows players to walk up the ramp and open the item chest at the end of Halls of Reflection as intended. We are actively working through the tickets we received on this issue and will handle them as quickly as possible. We thank you for your patience as we worked through this issue and apologize for any inconvenience. [/blizzquote"]

    Patch 3.3 Inventory Issue

    --

    There is an issue currently affecting the cross-realm dungeons when one player wins an item roll and then trades that item to another player who is from another realm. Under these circumstances, when leaving the instance the item may appear to be lost for some players. We expect this issue to be resolved as soon as possible, but want to remind players that they will need to have space available in the original backpack for the item to be returned when the resolution is complete.

    See, Blizzard don't want us all having free epics! xD

    Good to see they're fixing the ramp issue in Halls of Reflection already as well.

    Ty as always Boub for keeping us updated

    i like how they changed the limited numbers alrdy, without people even reaching those bosses and failing with the attempts in place :3

    I think you'll find it means the vendor will now take your frost and give you triumph.
    Just how the triumph vendor now exchanges to conquest now, rather than having to go down to the sewers.

    Wait, seriously?! You mean... handing in Conquests for Triumphs, and handing in Triumphs for FROST?!!
    Damn... i've got over 100 conquest badges from Ulduar hard mode raids and stuff... full tier 10 here I come!

    This was already the case, as far am I'm aware.

    This seems like Bornakk just typed it in wrong.

    If not, woot.

    just to clarify this for people that aren't understanding, it means that you SPEND your emblems of frost to get triumph emblems, just like you spend your triumph to get conquests now this is not an "here, go exchange your 405 emblems of conquests for triumph, and then go change that to frost, and get full tier10 in 1 day"

    Re: Patch 3.3 Hotfixes, Blue posts

    - Give 1 Triumph, receive 1 Conquest
    - Give 1 Frost, receive 1 Triumph

    Was it really that hard to figure out? :P

    On topic, i'm glad Blizzard are on top of things, ironing out the bugs. Had problems on my shaman getting disconnected repeatedly at the end of Halls of Reflection.

    he wrote it more like

    (the vendor receives) one triumph in exchange for one conquest
    It's just a game.

    What you're saying is not what was said. Give 1 Triumph, receive 1 Frost.

    I think it's pretty obvious that's not what Bornakk meant. It's Frost -> Triumph, Triumph -> Conquest. Bad wording, that's all.

    The problem being it was written from the NPCs point of view not the players, the NPC does indeed exchange a Triumph for one of your Frost

    Emblem of Triumph quartermasters now exchanges (gives) one Emblem of Conquest for (the cost of) one Emblem of Triumph

    Was it so hard?

    You know just as well as I do that that is not the way people typically write things. The item being turned in is the first word after the word exchanges in most cases. They're just writing it from the point of view of the NPC, which is stupid.

    Just to bring the issue to light on the "Saurfang not spawning" issue..
    Server restarts are slated for early-ish morning, according to a GM I spoke with.
