Boss ‘Fixation’ Bug and Hotfix

(Locked)

Community Manager
Due to a fix applied earlier today a bug was introduced that is causing bosses which have any ‘fixate’ abilities, meaning those that will fixate on and/or chase a certain player, to not function correctly. This is currently noticeable for most players on Atramedes in normal or heroic, and Ascendant Council and Sinestra on heroic, but affects a great number of other bosses throughout the game.

We have a fix currently in the testing stages but it will require realm restarts to apply. We’re currently anticipating rolling restarts to happen early tomorrow morning during off-peak hours. We apologize for any inconvenience for those attempting bosses tonight with these mechanics.

Well restart them NOW! Everything is borked, ugh.

I'd rather lose 15 minutes than have some encounters being completely random for 1 of our 3 weekly raid nights.


If they restart them NOW, they won't be able to test the fix properly.

If they don't test the fix properly, then far worse bugs could pop up. And certainly not everything is 'borked.'

It's a different tune when you've been grinding through difficult progression content and have a low percent wipe on one night and can't even attempt the boss the next.

You mean that patch didn't get vigorously tested like the one for moving a guild from realm to realm?

If they restarted the servers now, during prime time, they would likely be down for far longer than 15 minutes as the login server would die a horrible death from so many people trying to get back in at once.

Wait, if "Fixate" isn't working, doesn't that mean it's actually easier now? The tank can just grab back the agro from whomever the boss would have otherwise fixated on...

lol, yea. Fun times. We couldn't figure out what the hell was going on. Having not downed him yet (couple attempts last night and then ran out of time) we thought we all horribly missunderstood the fight.
