Midsummer fails to reset...

Post by Doulmagnus » Mon Jun 22, 2009 11:11 am

Greetings!

While the Midsummer Fire Festival event has begun, we wanted to take some time to explain that there are some currently known issues with the Festival, and to let the community know that we are working on resolving them.

The first issue, and what seems to be the most prevalent reported issue, is regarding gaining Fire Blossoms from fire quests that were completed last year. This affects the Honor the Fires and Desecrate the Fires quests, as they appear to have not reset from last year. We understand the concerns many players have about being able to obtain enough blossoms for this year to buy what they wish, and we are actively working on the issue.

Second, there have been many reports that the quest “Unusual Activity” has not reset from last year. This is being investigated by development.

In addition, we have had many players report that Crown of the Fire Festival from last year is not granting achievement credit for King of the Fire Festival. This appears to be a result of the quest not having been completed while the achievement system was live (as last Midsummer was before the achievement system was implemented). If it were to grant retroactive achievement for King of the Fire Festival, it would have been granted upon launch of the achievement system.

While we do apologize for any frustration, we want to actively assure the community that we are working on resolving these issues, and any others that may appear.

We will update this information as it becomes available. The thread will continue on our Customer Service Forum here: http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/threa ... 4390&sid=1

Fortunately, Lealla only needs 1 more day to acquire enough blossoms to complete all the achievements. Others have not been so lucky, unfortunately.

I wants my proto-drake! At the rate I'm going it may be the first one I get.

Fires reset... hope noone stopped half way through.

6/22/09

We are in the process of applying an in-game fix that will restart all of the quests associated with the Midsummer Fire Festival event and allow players to complete them once again. If you are in the process of completing an achievement such as Extinguishing Kalimdor, this fix will reset your progress and you will need start over. This fix will require realms to be restarted.

Actually, its good if you were doing these already this year. Riding around to the fires is EASY money. I specifically completed Northrend in the hope that the fires would reset and I could do them again.

I finished the achievements fast knowing they would reset the event.

After the first day, the whole first page of the achievement forums was about everything not being reset.

Now I get to do them again for double the profit :)

I currently have three fire crowns. One from last year, one from this year that I got just for talking to the npc, and another after the reset. I use two of them to illuminate the outhouse at night.
