WoW Patch 7.2.5 Hotfixes: Black Temple Timewalking lockouts and Tomb of Sargeras bugs

Mistress Sassz’ine

Good news everybody! No, the slime is not flowing again, but Black Temple Timewalking lockouts are now fixed. When the first Timewalking raid came out on Tuesday, players quickly found out that the raid lockout was working like Mythic: players were locked to the instance ID rather than per boss. This meant that people could not join another fresh or in-progress group if they had already killed bosses. The lockout issue will be resolved with realm restarts in the morning.

Tomb of Sargeras is also seeing bugs dealt with. First up is the incredibly annoying Dresanoth bug, where the NPC for the world quest was not spawning correctly in the watery halls. What was happening, however, was that he was putting everyone in combat as they ran through on the way to Mistress Sassz’ine. No pre-pots, no eating, no rezzing. We had to get creative with deaths in order to get out of combat and our loot addon working at the end. Also fixed is another annoying bug in Mistress Sassz’ine’s room — the loot window would keep closing itself while trying to assign loot with Master Looter. Unfortunately it seems like the same loot window issue in the Sisters of the Moon room is still there.

Read on for the full list of changes.
