CLOSED - The Xmas Gift Boxes

Postby Fallenseraph » Sun Dec 25, 2016 11:50 pm

Hello everyone

Thanks to one player, I managed to conduct an investigation on the mystery of the Xmas gifts that do not work in Orgrimmar and Ironforge.

As many know, since yesterday, I have been awarding TRB players with the harmless "Festive Gift " ( http://db.vanillagaming.org/?item=21363 ), that rewards the 10 days soulbound wand, "Wand of Holiday Cheer" ( http://db.vanillagaming.org/?item=21328 )

But with the real boxes not working, a lot of one-time quest obtainable items become unavailable, including :

Mechanical Greench ( http://db.vanillagaming.org/?item=21325 )
Preserved Holy ( http://db.vanillagaming.org/?item=21213 )
Winter Veil Cookies ( http://db.vanillagaming.org/?item=21254 )
Winter Veil Eggnog: ( http://db.vanillagaming.org/?item=21241 )
Winter Veil Roast ( http://db.vanillagaming.org/?item=21235 )
Green Helper Box (http://db.vanillagaming.org/?item=21301 )
Snowman Kit ( http://db.vanillagaming.org/?item=21309 )
Red helper Box ( http://db.vanillagaming.org/?item=21305 )
Jingling Bell ( http://db.vanillagaming.org/?item=21308 )

As those come from the boxes to players trough the quest interface, and since we from TRB Staff prize ourselves in making sure that players recover any item whose property can be verified trough the quest register, I took it upon myself to investigate the reason why players are not being able to get their Xmas gifts this year.

Many players said the quests were disabled in order to avoid AH abuse. But upon investigation, the truth was much darker than that....

*************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

THE IRONFORGE AND ORGRIMMAR GIFT BOXES WERE STOLEN!

Stolen and replaced with cheap empty forgeries !

Oh no, not under my watch.

Working in league with Spymaster from the Shattered Hand, Iceeyou , I managed to get this shot before the poor Shattered Hand spy was captured and slain:

http://prnt.sc/dntj5s

If any of you recognize that place, please msg or mail me in game or else post what you know here, so we may assemble a strike force (or maybe two....) and start acting. I mean, those guys, they are playing with your toys, using your gifts and eating your Xmas food !

I have info on good authority that the only way into that place is trough the old Arena entrances.... Those damn magical contraptions that will only open at the same time, and only if there is enough Hero Material (guess, Sherlock....) on both sides of the ring ! If Court Mage FrostSeraph deduction is right, that means we must strike from both sides at the same time using Ally and Horde teams. That rings a bell.....

But of course you guys are all adults, and will patiently wait for the other faction to loot their gifts first, even under the risk of being unable to loot your own after they do it.... Right ?

Also, the same sources say that those guys will go away, taking all gifts with them, after the end of the Winter veil gift event (Dec 25th to Jan 1st ), so we should act fast.

Remember that the boxes they stole work in quest format and can only be used once each per character. We can plan multiple raids on the gifts, so there is no need to multibox.

Please contact me when you guys are ready to go there and get your stuff back !

UPDATE: Event is over! See you guys next year !!!!

Maybe next year I'll get the gifts. I'm 0 for 2.
