* Latest Updates* - More bugs!

1) Turn in frags - npcs do not take it, so we can keep getting our portals up, knights and fangraal!

2) Tour of duty bug, every time you win event the timer is refreshed to 5 minutes, however you can leave after ur first 5 minutes you wont get the debuff

3) The books that drop from rares, like the rogue preparation books are still oudated, kinda useless!

4) Warlocks by the portals can be enslaved/bribed and we can take them where ever we want.

5) AA has yet to be seen!

6) We are not getting honourable kills
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You can play in Ashran if you want but its really buggy, still fun! =P

All you have to do is run in Ashran and you will be in queue, same way like you used to or you can queue up as a group or a raid even for premades.

1) Maps are not working - mini map and the big map bugged. if you press M you will see world map and not ashran, you will need to click to see the ashran map even then it doesn't always work.

2) Rares are like raid bosses now, takes long to kill them, so you cant solo it or with 2-3 people because that can take you 30+ minutes lol

3) All roles are bugged everyone is shown as no role ,so you cant really tell who are ur healers unless you ask them, unless you queue as a raid set ur roles, and then queue up, it should be fine then!

4) When you join, you will need to enable pvp by clicking on ur portrait, everyone will need to do this or healers cant heal you. they can only heal the people who have pvp enabled.

5) You can queue as a party, but if you drop out, go afk and want to join back, that will be tough because it tends to throw you in another ashran happened to me several times, hope this gets fixed!

6) If you try to join someone by grouping up with them if they are already in ashran, you will be thrown in another ashran at the moment,


7) You can fix ur roles by joining as a raid, choose ur roles and join ashran, you will have the same roles in ashran... you all know what that means right? lol............ We can all queue as a raid...............

8) Legendary rings/Trinkets/Gliders no longer work in Ashran but nukes still work for some weird reason

I assume we are not meant to play ashran at the moment, its why we cant queue by using the new option, but people are running in Ashran anyway lol. Blizz is most likely working on these things because Ashran is really messed up.

I still did 1 rotation smoothly with all the above problems and it was still fun, pvp still happening! Vol/Trem hit really hard and they can kill you fast like a raid boss!

Not sure how long it will stay this way, but for now this is what is going on in Ashran, you can still play in Ashran the rewards are Mark of honor, boxes & gold!

Thanks for making this thread. We're working on getting Ashran back up and running properly and I want to give you an update on some of the issues you mentioned.

We're working on a fix for this.

The target item level for PvP templates was set too low. Players were given stats on par with someone in 700 item level gear. We've already bumped that up to 740. This change should help a bit with this problem.

We have a fix in testing for this problem.

5) You cannot bring any premades in, if you try to join someone by grouping up with them you will be thrown in another ashran

We'll investigate this one. It should follow the same behavior as battlegrounds. You should be able to enter with a party of up to 5 people.

6) Legendary rings/Trinkets/Gliders no longer work in Ashran but nukes still work for some weird reason

Engineering toys like gliders will have their functionality restored in a future patch. Sorry no ETA on that. It is a complicated fix. The other items you mentioned are not intended to work.

Not sure how long it will stay this way, but for now this is what is going on in Ashran, you can still play in Ashran the rewards are 200 honor, gold & a box, but you don't really get honor.

We have a fix in testing to change the rewards to a strongbox similar to what you get from a battleground and a Mark of Honor (useful for buying old PvP gear sets).
