Firebird's Finery Bonus Temporarily Disabled(1)Category: WizardAugust-26-2014 11:37 AM PDT (7 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
During the final steps of deployment of Patch 2.1.0, an issue came up with the reworked Wizard set Firebird's Finery. In the patch, we updated the set bonus to be much more powerful than before; however, due to a bug, the set is not functioning correctly.

Rather than hold up the patch until this bug is fixed and verified internally, we have opted to release the patch with the 6-piece set bonus disabled. We are preparing a hotfix for the set and will apply it as soon as possible. Our best estimate is sometime tomorrow at the latest, but our team is working hard to have the hotfix applied as early as later today.

Thanks for your patience! We're as eager as you are to burn things with fire.

Update 3:46PM PDT - Hotfix is being deployed and should be available in all games soon.

I just spoke to the QA team who retested the Firebird's Finery set bonus, and confirmed it is working correctly. Basically, the 6-piece bonus works like this...

  • It produces less damage than on the PTR as it ramps up
  • It produces the same damage as on the PTR once it is infinite

In other words, the attack starts off a bit slower now before building to PTR strength.

Thanks, guys! We tested the issue again, and discovered the 6-piece set bonus is incorrectly basing its damage off of whether or not the first ability cast to trigger it was a critical hit or not. While we unfortunately don’t have an ETA on when this will be fixed, our goal is to address it as soon as possible. Thanks for helping us catch it!

Also, special thanks to Sigmund, Unolydesire, Nightshade, Vdizzle and Atmo for keeping the thread constructive, and Kurono for video proof of the bug! ;)

This seems to be fixed on live as of now.

This is correct. The hotfix went live last night, so it should actually be fixed now - but as said earlier, please let us know if the problem persists.
