For a company with so many years of experience with some pretty intricate lore, Blizzard sure seems to be in need of practice when it comes to killing characters.
I have to say, this is probably Blizzard's worst run in-game event in a long time. Granted, Cataclysm is only a couple of months old, but Winters Veil wasn't this bad when Wrath came out.
Yeah some of these events have been, well, a complete dog's breakfast! And while some people regard them as bits of fluff (which they are entitled to), for myself, being a collectaholic, having these bugger up (like Childrens Week) can and does literally set you back 12 months...
What I don't get is Blizzard's abysmal record when it comes to just communicating about these issues. Yes, there's a forum post in the European forums. Where's the post in the North American forums? These issues are generating many, many threads, but I don't see a sticky, as there should be, to help answer people's questions.Sadly, this is typical, rather than an oversight on their part.
A pity that it's on the European forums, otherwise I might ask that they fix the BB King achievement, while they're at it. As much as I want to pelt Muradin Bronzebeard to see if he smashes, I can't find him anywhere. ;)
Guess this is more reason to look for a new game with a developer who pays attention and gets the job done.
Looking at 4.0.6 patch notes (if you have 1 hour) it seems 4.0.6 is (mostly) what Cataclysm should be when launched, besides of the long list of bugs and issues they also ignored world events. This time they make players use command line to buy items which is absolutely pathetic, last time was the cogwheel crash, I don't want to think about the (new) bugs introduced with this new patch.
I had 50 lovely charm bracelets saved from last year. I got them the day after the event ended for something like 2s each. I held onto those damned things for a year waiting to auction them off for 50-100g each when the event started; well, for some reason or another they just disappeared. POOF! Gone with the wind.
I got the Love Fool title back in 2009...went to put it on my character yesterday and it was gone :/ Still showing the achievement but no title. Stinkers, not only can I not complete this on toons without the title but it's gone from the ones I already finished it with.Edit: Just got a responce to my ticket on this matter...they told me to hit C and select from the drop down list /facepalmThey just got a much more irate second ticket telling them to fix the problem and not be morons.
what's sad is that
Note to above posters : when you run that script you need to be standing in front of the merchant in question with that merchants window open. You do not, however, need to be on the correct page. That should fix your error.Note that I am not discussing how incredibly sad it is that you have to run a custom made script to buy something from a vendor in a game that is this old.
Ah ha. There you are. I have a bone to pick with you:I'll have you know that I didn't just get a high post count by having irrelevant conversations in threads!...Wait ... dammit.
I bought my "Love Fool" box today, placed it in Org to try it out, saw it worked, and went off to Northrend to do the I Pitied the Fool achieve. Imagine my disappointment when I got to Naxx and the box had disappeared. Anybody else having that issue?
Alas, its one time use :(I discovered another thing to be aware of... If you are playing on a little used alt and you happen to also pick up the quest to take a boat from Storm Wind Harbor to Vashj'ir (?) Then Snivel will not be present on the docks due to phasing. Its really simple to fix, just drop the quest. Of course this is after you spend half an hour running around trying to find Snivel :(
Something tells me this is going to be a repeat, log in and complete the dungeon only to ever get JP :-(
