Fix for Repeat Instance Bug Exploit

Exploit bug : Easy way to farm boss?!

Posté le 16/09/2019

Blizzard pushed a hotfix to avoid people abusing layering in instance / raids in Classic WoW. Layering strikes again?!

Impact

This exploit allowed players to repeatedly farm certain mobs in dungeons, including bosses, without having to reclear to that location and probably bypassing the 5 dungeons per hour lockout since you never leave the dungeon. This means that the players who exploited this will be able to farm bosse very easily, so these players are likely close to their BiS gear and have plenty of expensive pieces of gear and recipes (or gold)!

We’ve recently become aware of a bug that could be exploited to allow instanced encounters to be completed repeatedly. We have developed a fix for the issue, and we are in the process of deploying it worldwide.

Realm restarts are scheduled for 3:00 a.m. PDT (6:00 a.m. EDT) in order to apply this fix.

As soon as possible, we will identify those who knowingly abused this bug in exploitative manner. We will then take appropriate punitive measures.As a reminder, Blizzard’s End User License Agreement 2 defines cheats as “methods not expressly authorized by Blizzard, influencing and/or facilitating the gameplay, including exploits of any in-game bugs, and thereby granting you and/or any other user an advantage over other players not using such methods.”

As always, thank you for your feedback on this matter.
