Followed by WoW Dragonflight 10.1Blizzard released a series of hotfixes for the iconic MMORPG. For those who spend their days in the bathhouse World of WarcraftSeemingly endless raids, a small change to the LFG tool means finding a squad to fight Aberrus, Shadowed Crucible is now much easier.
Aberrus is the second Dragonflight raid and comes with patch 10.1, Embers of Neltharion. Delving into the heart of the Obsidian Citadel, players will encounter some of Neltharion’s most deadly failed experiments.
That is if you can find a group. When the raid started, its name (Aberrus, Shadowed Crucible – try saying that three times fast) was just too big for the LFG tool, meaning you couldn’t see if a party was queuing for normal or heroic difficulty. Sure, it’s hardly the end of the world to check it out, but it’s annoying.
Not anymore, though, as Blizzard has subtly tweaked the system with the latest round of patches. Although not listed on official listone eagle-eyed fan noticed that the raid is now simply called Aberrus, meaning you can easily see what level of raiding the group plans to do.
“Blizzard covertly patched the LFG tool to shorten Aberrus’ name so we can see at a glance if the group is Normal or HC!” They writewith another comment: “Hey Blizzard redditor, I know you’re reading this comment so all I want to say is thank you.”
This is not the first trifle I’ve reported that it’s had quite a few changes, and it’s often the tiny quality-of-life tweaks that really matter to long-term fans. As a former raider myself, I can imagine how frustrating it would be to search through tons of different groups to find a Heroic Run – Blizzard, you’ve done a good job on this one.
