Black Lotus e Ineffable Truth nel mirino dei devs: altri hotfix in arrivoWhatsApp
Black Lotus – Sono in arrivo su World of Warcraft diversi interessanti aggiornamenti, che andranno a colpire oggetti come il Black Lotus o l’abilità Fist of Justice.
Per prima cosa si segnalano gli ultimi interventi pubblicati sul server live, una lista di hotfix che ha già introdotto su Azeroth una correzione per l’encounter N’Zoth nel raid di Ny’Alotha. Oltre a questo intervento, pare però che ve ne siano almeno altri due in arrivo nei prossimi giorni.
La prima modifica riguarda l’interazione tra l’Ineffable Truth e le abilità come Fist of Justice (e simili): secondo i devs vi è infatti un malfunzionamento che altera la reale riduzione del cooldown, un problema che comunque pare essere sulla via della risoluzione, e di cui sapremo maggiori dettagli nelle prossime ore.
Infine, si segnala l’importante aumento del tasso di generazione dell’oggetto Black Lotus, l’aggiornamento rapido per alcuni luoghi di Warsong Gulch (ai quali i giocatori non dovrebbero accedere) ed anche un rapido hotfix per far si che un giocatore risulti “occupato” (o busy) se contattato per uno scambio mentre sta consultando la posta o la propria banca.
World of Warcraft – Black Lotus e altri
# Ny’alotha, the Waking City
- N’Zoth the Corruptor
- Fixed a bug that could cause Spike Tentacles to repeatedly target a player with multiple casts of Pain Spike in succession rather than randomizing targets.
#Black Lotus and Warsong Gulch
Via hotfixes, we’re working on several quality-of-life improvements that should go live in the next few days.
Black Lotus scarcity has been consistently among the top issues we’ve seen player feedback about, so we’ve decided to update how we handle Black Lotus spawns. Since the launch of WoW Classic, the game has used the spawn times and locations from original World of Warcraft, but population and social factors have led to Black Lotus being much more scarce than it was in original WoW. While these issues affect all mining and herb nodes to some degree, Black Lotus is especially affected because it has the special property of only having one spawn up at a time in each of the zones it spawns in.
In original WoW, designers planned Black Lotus around a technical limitation – only 10 spawn locations per node type could be active at the same time in the same zone. We no longer have that limitation, but it gives us a design intention that we can work with: Black Lotus was supposed to spawn in the widest variety of locations, while there could only be one up at a time in each zone. As always, our goal is to minimize differences from original World of Warcraft, and we feel this is a case where we can follow that design intention in a way that is warranted by modern conditions as well as beneficial to players.
We’re going to increase the spawn rate of Black Lotus, and we’re going to add many additional possible spawn locations in each of the Black Lotus zones. With a different hotfix, we’re working on making it so that a player cannot see a Black Lotus on-screen or on their minimap if they’re dead, unless they have 300 Herbalism.
For Warsong Gulch, we’ve identified a number of locations in the battleground where clever players have found ways to get to a place they were never intended to go. These exploits are decidedly unfair, so we’re putting a stop to them. In most cases, the way we prevent such things is to place an invisible gate that blocks the unintended path. However, that’s sometimes impossible, so we make the out-of-bounds location fatal.
We’re also working on a hotfix that should put a stop to one small annoyance – now, if a player is actively engaged with the mailbox or bank, they will be considered “busy” if someone else tries to initiate a trade with them.
We’ll have all of these changes noted for you in the next Hotfixes Update that follows them going live.
#Fist of Justice Hotfix
We think we’ve found a way to fix a bug, and we’re planning to deploy the fix in the next day or two.
The bug is with the Corruption Effect Ineffable Truth and its interaction with abilities like Fist of Justice causing more than the intended amounts of cooldown reduction.
The hotfix will make it so the flat cooldown reduction provided by Fist of Justice (and similar abilities) will not be unintentionally increased by effects that increase your cooldown rate (such as Ineffable Truth).
We’ll confirm that the fix is live in our hotfixes update posts.
