8.3 New Tame Bugs

Unread post by Wain » Thu Jan 30, 2020 1:55 am

I'm closing this thread, now most 8.3 stuff is fixed, I've moved the remaining stuff to the main BfA pet bug thread. Thanks for all your reports, and please continue to post there :)

I know you have Rukhran listed for size/scaling issues, but I wanted to add that he also comes with some really odd UI issues. He's impossible to stable at Stablemasters, because in the Stable UI he shows up as invisible. I have screenshots to show what I mean if necessary.

The latter could be a caching issue. Does it still look that way after deleting your cache?

The cache helped the UI issue, though it appears they have fixed Rukhran's scaling problem already.

Not after taming but before... Lalathin is SUPERTINY.

And Rukhran....is MASSIVE on your login page. But I will say I can stable him just fine. He's a bird icon for me.

Thanks :) The scaling on the login page *could* be some kind of caching issue too, but I'm unsure. Hopefully it settles with time.

Any sort of flying pet (Ji-kun, Aqir wasps, etc) that are placed in the Animal Companion slot have unorthodox and faulty pathing. For example, I had Ji-kun following me up the stairs in Throne of Thunder, but in a weird "sliding on its belly" kind of motion, and then later, when I was descending stairs, it flew in a direct line towards me rather than obeying the geometry of the ground. Someone on discord mentioned that it was able to chase a flying player in PvP as well, which is a bit messed up since pets are very capable of dazing.

Crawgs are the best hunter pet. Prove me wrong.
Oh wait...you can't!

Name the game these characters are from, and I'll be amazed.

I talked Ruhkran almost immediately and never had a scaling problem.

As for other things: Faultline is tiny compared to other clefthoofs once tamed.

Shassera loses her name when tamed. (Not a big thing since you can just name it that but yea)

Definitely turned to Serpent for me. Renamed her to Slither cause I couldn't stop looking at how it slithered through the air haha.

I just tamed her now and she definitely kept her name. Maybe it was a glitch, or another caching issue.

I got Rukhran set as my animal companion and he seems to position himself real far back when attacking things, with him positioning himself so far back are all abilitys hitting properly?

Suntouched Falcon in Uldum, seems larger than they should be. Also, they do not have an icon in the summon pet spell. If you have one on you and go to the stablemaster, they disappear, though taming another made him return.

I wanted to test this out, and from what I'm seeing: no, Rukhran's abilities are not all hitting properly.

I set Rukhran as Animal Companion (stable slot) and as the active main-pet. In both cases he would periodically stand at a "range" to the target, and would attack from a distance. Stomp would go off, but would miss. Kill Command would work, but that's likely because KC has such a long range anyways. It did appear that some auto-attacks did land, but it would come out to a slight DPS decrease when using Rukhran.

My guess is that somehow it's based on Rukhran's actual programming as a boss. Not sure if that actually is the case, but in the dungeon he attacks players on a platform from a distance, and it does appear that the bug of "standing at a range and attacking" does mimic his behavior pre-tame as a Boss encounter.


Edit:
Also note that the Fel Fire armored Dread Ravens and Rukhran seem to have ESPECIALLY loud combat sounds. It sounds a lot like how Chromaggus and some other Core Hounds (when they first were tameable) were extremely loud and could be heard from far away. Using the blue/black unarmored Dread Raven seems to be completely normal, but the two armored fire-birds definitely have an above-average sound file. I wouldn't have considered this a possible bug, until I compared it to the unarmored birds and just found the differences in sound-levels actually quite massive lol

Have you tried emptying you game cache? The icon part could be just this.

Just tried clearing my cache a moment ago, logged in and took a look-clearing the cache did nothing to fix the icon or the fact that the pet is missing in the stable.

In this picture I have her as my summoned primary pet when I go to the stable, named her Wren-she shows on the summon pet still as the whistle icon and should be the fourth pet visible in the stable screen but is not there.

Image

Also for size comparison next to the tiny void elf.

Here is Wren-the suntouched falcon summoned as a pet.
Image
Her wingtip is just s smidge from the track questing sidebar here (the yellow dot on the side).

Next, without moving my character or the zoom on my screen, I dismissed her and summoned a random hawk that I tamed in Borealus:
Image
This other hawk is much smaller, with the wingtip nowhere near the track questing sidebar (that yellow dot again).
