Garrosh heirloom items shouldn't be shown as upgradeable
Return to board index
Multiple people that already got an heirloom from Garrosh confirmed that they are not upgradeable here:
Here is also a character on the armory that has a heirloom equipped, it's also shown as not upgradeable:
Therefore, all those items shouldn't be shown as upgradeable on Wowhead:
Wowhead shouldn't react to a temporary bug, they will likely be changed to be upgradeable soon. Unless they already count as upgraded, dunno.
They are already 8 item levels higher than the usual item level of the same difficulty, which exactly matches two upgrade levels.
Who says that it is a bug that they are not upgradeable?
We added the upgrade functionality based on this Blizzard tweet from September 9th:
@Bashiok hey bash, can you confirm Heirloom garrosh weapons can be upgraded?
@FrankRenos That's what I hear! They should be BiS.
I've reached out for clarification and hopefully will hear back today.
Heard back, they shouldn't be upgraded and Warforged items are intended to be better. We're working on a fix today.
Clear cache/refresh, the items shouldn't have upgrade details anymore.
Seems like it's even worse now. Yesterday only the item pages showed the upgrade cost and the "Upgrade Level 0/2" string in the item itself, but the tooltips on the search page didn't show any upgrade info. Today even the tooltips show "Upgrade Level 0/2" and the item pages are unchanged.
Yes, I've cleared my cache and even tried different browsers.
I pushed a cache refresh on the search page you linked in the OP and that seemed to clear up the tooltips. However, linking the items here still shows the upgrade option on the tooltip so my guess is that there's a larger cache issue that will likely resolve itself if there isn't a way to force it globally.
The intent wasn't to mislead you and to say they are fixed when they are not. They are fixed--this is what the item page looks like for me now without having to hard refresh:
We can look into forcing the cache issue to fix itself sooner so that nobody is affected and seeing the wrong/old results.
Dat staff tab...
And yeah, cache can be a fickle thing, earlier today the tooltip of
didn't display 0/2 for me, now it does... the individual page does not, though :)
Item pages are updated now for me too. Tooltips still wrongly show the upgrade string, but I assume that this will also fix itself after some time. If it doesn't, I'll post again ;)
Thanks for the quick fix.
Tooltips should be fixed now, they needed another poke from our devs :)
