Horde guilds in World of Warcraft Classic have reportedly been having trouble completing the Scarab Lord quest chain due to griefing by a certain Alliance guild. The quest chain is part of the Opening of The Gates of Ahn’Qiraj event and will reward players with the coveted Scarab Lord title.
According to one Reddit thread, Sulfuras has been blocking Horde attempts to take down the boss prompting every eligible Horde guild to gather and try to zerg the boss down. Sulfuras then allegedly mass reported the player who was about to earn the Scarab Lord title who was instantly slapped with a 7-day ban.
The Green Scepter Shard piece is actually part of the Scepter of Shifting Sands questline, “We’ve seen reports that on some realms, players appear to be disrupting those who are working on the Green Scepter Shard portion of the Scepter of the Shifting Sands questline. Specifically, by bringing uninvolved and low-level characters to engage with a required enemy and buff its stats/abilities.” By the way, you can buy cheap WOW Classic (RU) Accounts from z2u.com, where you can enjoy a 3% discount by using the code “Z2U”.
This event caused concern among the playerbase and prompted some official responses, one of which was a follow-up to the event that confirmed that the Horde player was not in fact banned due to report abuse. But Blizzard also pointed out a portion of the terms of service that warns against people making malicious use of the report system and threatens actions against those that do; to that point, some accounts were found to be doing just that and have seen actions taken against them.
Another official reply further discusses another form of griefing whereby low-level players are being brought in to engage with the boss and thereby buff its stats and abilities for those legitimately attempting the fight; the studio has stated that those found attempting as much could receive suspensions. So at the very least, Blizzard is aware that this whole quest chain is a hotbed for griefing activity.
