T1 PvP Fists weren't updated with PvP power/upgrade

Go ahead, go to the T1 Conquest Point vendor, and take a look at the PvP power on the 1H Axes/Maces/Swords, and then on the Fist weapons. The Fists actually have half the PvP power now that they stealth buffed the PvP power on the other weapons.

Moreover, if you currently have the fist weapons, you'll find that you aren't even able to upgrade them with conquest points! This doesn't happen to any of the other weapon categories, and only to the T1 fist weapons, so it looks like that once again, they forgot fist weapons! :/

Please, if you can, report this issue in game and let's keep this thread up so people who decided to go with the fist weapons don't remain gimped for the rest of season or something because Blizzard doesn't seem to remember that Fist weapons even exist anymore.

I found it quite funny at the start too, "Haha, they forgot fist weapons again!"

But then I realised that we could very well be stuck with 2385 less PvP power than everyone else just because we decided to buy the fist weapons :D

Nothing to investigate, you only need to look at the facts, and the facts are that the fist weapons, again, have been overlooked. Isn't it just awesome to have chosen both the Shaman class AND fist weapons on a day like this?

EDIT: :):):) happy faces

Take that, poster below

They have not been overlooked, the PvP power adjustments simply did not apply to them and we are investigating as to why and sorting out a resolution. It is not a simple matter of flipping a switch, but we are working to have the correct amount of PvP power on fist weapons as soon as possible.

Seriously, Ice Barrier got screwed up, it got more than 25% nerf and now you need to investigate lower PvP power on first weapons.

Well I can save you the invistigation, it has lower PvP Power stat than other PvP weapons - results of my investigation, now fix your game please.

Yeah, you're welcome. If you're actually in contact with people who are in a position to answer this - are GMs going to be able to refund the PvP Fists since people who bought them before a certain date (today?) can't upgrade them?

Either that or an ETA are very much welcome at this point.

Edit: Please just ignore the people being hostile for no reason. All we really want is assurance that we won't be completely screwed for weeks to come in case that's how long it takes you to 'investigate'.

Fair enough, and for the first time in a long time I can confirm that something has happened fast, the PvP power has been fixed as of this second.

Also Nakatoir: how come the fist weapons in particular have been missed twice now?

Indeed, the PvP power on the fist weapons has been hotfixed to match other weapons - however, people who bought the weapons before today are still unable to upgrade them.

We'd appreciate if you could report that as well please Nakatoir!

My best guess is that since they most likely got a new item ID when they got forgotten the first time (since they had to remove them from the vendors and then add new ones that costed 1750) they weren't updated as their ID range might have been outside the array of PvP weapon IDs.

We have now hotfixed the the PvP power on fist weapons as you said, however being unable to upgrade fist weapons purchased before 5.1 is unrelated and as such requires some additional investigation to solve. We are still looking into this and hope to have it sorted out as soon as possible :)

Good that it's acknowledged, got any kind of ETA (today, tomorrow, next patch, the next expansion)? It seems the ones that are on the vendors are upgradeable but not the ones that players have already bought.
