PVP flag issue

Postby Kalasbyxan » Wed Nov 30, 2016 3:18 pm

Hello!

I am trying to gather information about stickied PVP flags on players. We want to fix this but need to find a link between the affected players to find the error. If you are experiencing a PVP flag that is unwanted and can't be turned off, please provide information there. It can be where you were when you got flagged, how long it's been, simply just any information you can give regarding the issue.

Thank you!

I have seen it when doing PVP quests. I have to flag to do the quest, like capture a tower in Terrokar. After capturing it, I can disable PVP and the countdown timer will start. If I stay on playing without doing any PVP, once the timer finishes the PVP flag stays permanent till log out.

PVP quests seems to do it most of the time for me.

Blastage mage 80 allied. Cannot turn off PVP. I can turn on PvP then thurn it off to get 5 min timer, After timer ends PvP still on. .Logging out does not clear. Been like this for months. No relief.

I think this has to do with combat flagging...I'll be testing this when I can get back on (if I can get back on) to try to narrow this down a bit further.

Well, I was close.
When you're flagged for PVP, any action you take will reset the flag timer.

Things that reset it out of combat:
Summon Charger
Divine Plea
Flash of Light
Eating/drinking (Succulent Orca Stew)
Changing Auras
Landing at a flightpath...?

Things that reset it in combat:
Art of war procs from melee hits (but not melee hits)
Vengance procs from melee hits
Or any ability really

Dismissing buffs doesn't appear to cause a reflag, but changing auras does. If you sit there and do nothing (but travel), you should drop the flag in 5 minutes as per normal (I did anyways).

Probably why people have issues getting it to go away. Until the devs can find a fix for this, just sit tight, and it will fade on its own.

Thank you Enki for this information! We will look into confirming this as the cause.

I have noticed that sometimes I'll randomly find myself flagged for PvP and have to stay still for over 5 minutes for it to go away. Any PvE action on my part will result in the timer resetting. I think this is because the code counts any self healing or self buffing (which happens by default just for fighting on my DK), as helping a flagged player. On the official servers, this doesn't happen since I figure there's an exception in the code for buffing/healing oneself.

That being said, I also noticed my niece was in Azure Watch the other day on her Night Elf Warrior. She had the totem there targeted and she used her Shadowmeld ability, which immediately caused her to be flagged. Just an example of flagging when not desired.
