Garrosh Loot Table Hotfix & Compensation

(Locked)

Community Manager
Greetings,

When Patch 5.4 released, Garrosh Hellscream was set to drop one tier token on 25-player Normal difficulty. This was inconsistent with other bosses in the zone, and we planned to correct that via hotfix. Our intent was to release this hotfix during weekly maintenance to keep rewards consistent throughout this reset; unfortunately, due to an error on our part, the hotfix was applied early to the North American and Asian servers. This has resulted in an unfair advantage for guilds that defeated Garrosh later in the week, not only against the NA/Asian guilds that defeated him before the hotfix was applied, but also against all European guilds that have defeated him (as the hotfix has not yet been applied there).

Fortunately, this only affects a small number of guilds, so we are able to correct the error. We’ll be reaching out to all guilds who only received one token from a successful Garrosh kill this week and providing the Guildmaster with an extra two tokens at random, which can then be distributed to any raid members who were present at the time of the kill.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience or frustration that this has caused. Thanks for your understanding, and good luck in Heroic difficulty!

Cool stuff. We only got 1 token on our kill on 25m. So this is a nice hot fix :)

Yay tokens! Now the woes of trying to figure out who should get them...

Oh, so 25 mans not only get increased chance of Warforged items, more items per boss per player ratio, and now they get even more tier pieces off the final boss? Fantastic.

They have always gotten more tier tokens. Garrosh was bugged with dropping one.

Good stuff. Glad to see this can't be used as an excuse when it comes to world firsts next week.

The only ones killing Garrosh at this point are top tier full guild runs I'm sure.

Is this way we are currently getting the "world server down" error, or is that a completely different issue? tried logging into my toon today and got the error, and checked the realm status and it says all my realms are still active. Anyone else getting this issue? and any info from Blizz on this issue?

How about fixing the spellpower shield, it's barely an upgrade without the sockets.

Depresses me more that people have already completed the raid.

Curious if any guild has gotten the tokens yet or the usual (soon)™ considering could help tomorrow's heroic progression.

So question... does 10m get *any* of these tokens?

Or is it a strictly 25m thing?

25 only since was suppose to be 2 tokens not just the 1 we got this week.
