17.4.2 Server Hotfix – Felfire Festival Quest & Battlegrounds Bug Fixes

A quick hotfix has just been released. The biggest improvement for anyone who jumped into the adventure too early last week is a fix for Legendary Quest. The adventure has been made available simultaneously on every server, but the Quest has been released with Tavern Brawl (which is always delayed on EU and Asia servers). Which means that lots of players could access adventure without having the Quest – and if they did finish Chapter 1 during that time, the Quest could no longer be completed once it came out. In order to fix it, you now need to replay the last mission of Chapter 1. Alternatively, another fix will come out in a while that will grant players rewards upon login without the need to go into adventure.

On top of that, a couple of Battlegrounds bugs got repaired – great!

It’s a server-side patch, which means that you don’t need to download anything.

As an extra note, Pirate Battlegrounds Heroes are also now available to everyone – they are no longer locked behind Tavern Pass. Aranna Starseeker still is, although you aren’t missing much, because early stats show that she’s pretty weak (sadly).

Hey everyone,

Later today Captain Eudora, Skycap’n Kragg, and Captain Hooktusk will be fully unlocked for all players in Battlegrounds! We’ve got a few bug fixes rolling out today as well:

  • Fixed an issue where upgrading the Tavern would prevent you from purchasing minions as Lady Vashj. Lady Vashj has returned to the active Hero pool.
  • Fixed an issue where Arcane Cannon would not fire when Golden Monstrous Macaw died after attacking.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented players from finishing the Happy Felfire Festival Quest. You can now re-play the final mission of Chapter 1 to complete the Quest. In the coming weeks we plan to release a second fix that will automatically grant rewards that were missed from this bug upon login.

These changes will take place on the server side, so you won’t have to download anything if you’ve updated to 17.4.1.

    I will not play the Solo Adventure again. It was a torture the first time already (I hate solo adventures). What a poor move not the give the reward to people who finished everything already.

      I’m pretty sure they didn’t do it out of spite. The issue was most likely harder to fix than they thought, so they’ve decided to put a band-aid on it now and then release an actual fix later.

      And you don’t need to replay the entire adventure – just the final fight of Chapter 1, FWIW. Yeah, it would be better if it was just awarded like they’ve said before, but what can you do.

      Sorry to hear that you hate adventures, though 🙁 I found this one really fun, at least as one time experience.
