World of Warcraft runs like a well-oiled machine, practically 20 years into its existence – but it surely’s not with out its share of bugs. Most of those are unremarkable, and a few are disruptive, however as soon as in a blue moon, they really create a brief unfair benefit – though generally you’ll be able to have an excessive amount of of an excellent factor, like this WoW Felguard bug.
It’s this type of bug that Reddit consumer cc4s2b9x (little question named after their paternal grandfather) encountered. The bug began when our alphanumerical warlock buddy visited Torghast, Tower of the Damned, an ever-changing, procedurally generated dungeon. Said dungeon has a mechanic referred to as Anima Powers, momentary buffs that enhance talents and buff stats – which their Felguard pet Rinnrike obtained, beefing up its harm and well being.
However, when the warlock and their companion left Torghast, the buffs endured. Running Mists of Tirna Scithe afterward, Rinnrike the Felguard logged a DPS of over 12k, hitting for 10k on common and critting for 22k. While this will likely look like a dream come true, exploiting a bug to achieve a bonus can simply see you getting slapped with a suspension or ban.
cc4s2b9x took each measure to rid themselves of this golden anchor. Resummoning didn’t work, and neither did killing it, respecing, making an attempt Torghast once more, doing area, doing Mythic+, altering addons, renaming it… seemingly the one path to not getting hit with a suspension was simply altering to a special spec completely and leaving Rinnrike to dream of world destruction in his nook of the nether realm.
Thankfully, after conferring with different Reddit customers, a workaround was discovered. The Glyph of Wrathguard is a beauty merchandise that transforms your Felguard right into a Wrathguard, the demonic Draenei troopers of the Burning Legion. Clearly, additionally they haven’t been pumping the ‘roids as a lot because the Felguard both, as upon utilizing this glyph, the Felguard went again to its puny, pre-Torghast stat line. All with out a ban or suspension, too.
For some really intentional adjustments to pet performance, rise up so far on the upcoming adjustments to Hunters within the Dragonflight growth.
