Top issues

Warlords of Draenor trial
Some players will have received an e-mail regarding a free 10 day Warlords of Draenor trial. This offer is only available to players who have not already upgraded their account to Warlords of Draenor.

If you have activated the trial and this is preventing you from upgrading to the full version please contact our customer support.

Unable to connect to your character (stuck)
If you experience errors such as 'World Server Down' or 'Character not Found' and are unable to connect to a character, please contact our support team and they will move the character to a safe location.

If you see 'Character With That Name Already Exists' there should be no need to contact support. Simply stay logged out of the affected character for around 20 minutes and try again.

Highmaul Colosseum chest
We are investigating an issue where the winning player cannot loot the chest.
Please note that CS is unfortunately unable to help in this matter.

Missing Garrison NPCs
The Lunarfall Inn/ Frostwall Tavern quest NPCs may not all be present at the same time when handing in a large amount of quests. You can find a workaround for this issue here

'Stay Awhile and Listen' Achievement
A hotfix is currently being tested but has not yet been applied to the live realms. The change will mean that only 10 daily inn quests will be required for the achievement, down from 20. If you have completed 10 or more of the quests you will still need to complete 1 additional quest to trigger the achievement once the hotfix is live.

Bonus Objective rewards
Some players cannot complete bonus objectives or obtain their reward despite meeting the required criteria. We are investigating. Leaving, then re-entering the area can sometimes trigger these rewards.

Character undelete feature triggering the cooldown but not restoring the character
If this has happened to you, please open a ticket so it can be investigated.

Item refund timer – "Internal Bag Error"
This is due to the refund timer still being active on old Valor and Justice items. In order to resell your item, simply wait for the 2 hour timer to expire. Note that the reselling price is lower than the purchase price like most of other in-game gold transactions.

Quest issues
  • Standing United : Hulda Shadowblade was not awarded as a follower after completing the quest. This should now be fixed, and the quest should once again be available and award the follower upon completion. If you are not able to take the quest again, contact our support team.
  • Thunderlord Invasion cannot be started with a level 3 Garrison. This quest is no longer necessary for your progression and you can abandon it.
  • Pets Versus Pests may not unlock the Menagerie. We are investigating.
  • It's possible the quest Nemesis: Hunter - Hunted (Alliance | Horde) may not be offered to players.

Other bugs
  • Changing outpost in Spires of Arak does not update the zone-specific ability.
  • We are investigating reports of Leeroy Jenkins not being awarded after completing the Leeeeeeeeeeeeroy...? achievement.
  • Grand Marshal Tremblade, High Warlord Volrath, and other bosses can despawn in combat and never respawn.
  • It is possible to loot Sha Crystals when disenchanting Warlords of Draenor items. We are investigating, however Customer Support are unable assist in replacing these materials.
  • The Achievement "The Stable Master" may not be awarded despite meeting 6/6 criteria. We are investigating. The problems seem to come from the criteria “Moth of Wrath Killed” which starts as completed 1/6. Doing all the required actions to fulfil this criteria should grant you the achievement.

Reported issues that are not bugs

Poundfist spawn rates
Due to phasing mechanics and features, Poundfist may spawn in different phases and be not visible to you at a given time. This creature is also very rare and hard to find, and it can take up to a few days to spawn.

In order to be eligible for loot from the NPC you must have actively participated in the encounter by dealing damage or healing your team mates. If during the encounter, you die and stray too far, disconnect, or reset your aggro toward him (mind control for example), you will not be able to loot him.

Our support teams are unable to assist you with this queries related to Poundfist.

Personal Loot
We are currently seeing a lot of confusion around Personal Loot :

  • When a boss dies, the game automatically decides who won loot, and grants those players a specialisation-appropriate item to be picked up on from the corpse or loot chest.
  • In Warlords of Draenor, the Personal Loot system can now be used in raids. This is also the default loot method in dungeons.
  • To see if you are eligible for a reward, you’ll have to loot the boss. If you’re not eligible for loot, you will receive a consolation reward such as some gold.
  • In addition, all players in the group will always receive an item from the final dungeon boss.

Salvage crates
We have recently made some changes to the salvage rewards from missions:

  • Level 90-94 missions will only award a Bag of Salvaged Goods (Level 1 reward) regardless of the level of your Salvage Yard.
  • Successful Level 100 missions will now always reward a salvage crate appropriate for your current Salvage Yard: Crate of Salvage or Big Crate of Salvage
  • Level 95-99 missions remain unchanged.

Boosted characters with limited spells
Recently boosted characters will need to complete a series of quests in either the Blasted Lands or Tanaan (depending on your box-level) in order to unlock all their skills and abilities. Alternatively, using the Group Finder tool to queue for a Dungeon, Raid or Battleground, or respeccing your talents at a trainer will also unlock all abilities and skills!

Quest "Fight, Kill, Salute!"
Due to a recent hotfix, some quests do not reward conquest points as stated in the description and this is intended. The season has not yet started, and all conquest points and items will be converted to honor points, or the equivalent honor items. Note that any item acquired before the fix will be converted before the beginning of the season: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/15355225379

Replacing follower traits
Using items such as the Supreme Manual of Dance or the Hearthstone Strategy Guide on your follower will permanently replace one of their existing traits, the trait to be replaced will be chosen at random.

The Follower Re-training Certificate will remove all of a follower’s abilities and traits and replace them with a randomised a selection of both.

Mount achievements and the new chopper
Please note for the achievement for having 100 mounts a character must have access to, and be able to use, at least 100 mounts.

The "Azeroth Chopper" mount has been automatically added to your list if one of your characters connected to the game before the 30th September.Search your mount list for Warlord’s Deathwheel.

      4. Add the Follower again to make items spawn.
