Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl disabled, new round of hotfixes released

The Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl, second of the new micro holidays introduced in patch 7.1.5, was scheduled to be released today. Unfortunately, players looking forward to the micro-holiday are going to have to wait a while longer. Due to some previously undiscovered issues that didn’t pop up in the PTR, the holiday has been disabled for now, according to a blue post by Ornyx.

The Kirin Tor Tavern Crawl micro-holiday is unfortunately suffering from some issues that didn’t come up in PTR testing, and we have been unable to correct via hotfix. As such, we’ve had to disable it.

Apologies for the inconvenience!

There’s been no mention of if or when we’ll see the holiday make a return as of yet, so we’ll just have to cross our fingers and wait to see if there will be a rescheduled appearance taking place in the near future. Although the Tavern Crawl couldn’t be hotfixed, there were several other issues that could — Blizzard released a new round of hotfixes yesterday addressing a variety of issues, including a couple of fixes for encounters in The Nighthold as well as some PVP adjustments for Demon Hunters, Paladins, and Priests.
