That seems absurd considering the achievement is account-wide. I think they're just giving you the run-around. =\

The hotfix for the Safari Hat will hopefully go into full effect on Tuesday after server maintenance. According to Mumper, all toons on an eligible account should receive one in the mail.

I've only received one hat on an alt (that didn't battle ANY Tamers except for 1), so this leads me to believe that the hotfix either didn't work, or will require a complete server maintenance and not just a restart.


Haven't got the hat either, and truly hope that Constants' GM was indeed giving him the run around. If not, how would I check which battles I've done on which character ?

Mind you, I've sometimes done the taming quests on the "wrong" char (Horde quest turned in on Alliance char and vice versa, viva auto complete quests, hehe).

I put a ticket in yesterday about not getting the hat, here was the response:

This is the latest response from Customer Support:

there are still quite a few pet bugs they need to fix, i completed all about 90% of all the pet acheivs, got a hat mailed to each my level 90s. Guild mate has had heck of a time "and frustrating for guild chat" with not receiving his hat. The biggest bug to plaque me was Northrend tamer. even though i had a rare Devouring Maggot, it wasn't giving credit. Had to tame another using a dif toon. So my recommendation if its not fixed in this weeks maintenance, try using both factions and battle what tamers you can. Could just be simple as one the tamers didnt count correctly? Idk just suggestion.

Does Taming the World require 40 unique tamer battles? I've been sitting at 39 for a while now. It won't roll to 40.

Thanks

@ Talmar

Yes mate, one of each of the tamers to get it. It was 45 (i.e. all of them) but they dropped it slightly.

Also, back on topic, I've now submitted 3 tickets, and got varying answers ranging from "it's a known issue with no resolution" to "you should only be getting one per account"... I'm sure I read somewhere that Mumper had basically said every toon on the account should get one, or am I dreaming?

/submits ticket number 4, hopefully I'll be online to speak to a GM this time :/

Thanks Eldavido, I'm guessing I'm missing a couple horde Tamers then. Off to go look. :)

I use 2 accounts and managed to get 1 hat on each, 1 on the main (but not sole) pet hunting toon and 1 on a character that I'm not really sure has ever fought a battle. No other toon on any server has received a hat so it seems semi-random at best and a pain in the behind at worst for those still missing their new headwear :(

Ya got hats mailed to all my toons, even ones that have never pet battled like my mules etc. But they didn't mail on the first day post patch. It was the next day after the hotfix.

PS: Wonder if they nerfed xp a bit because we all have hats now?

Sidenote: Don't be alarmed if you get one on all of your toons. According to Mumper, that's how it's supposed to work.


Thank you for this. I was actually worried that if I completed this achievement on a Horde alt then I would not be able to get the hat on the character I want to have it.

at least you are luck enogh to get an GM's answer that make any sense, I oppened a ticket 3 days ago asking explain the issue and asking for a solution even a temporary one, and the GM just told me: " thank you for your for taking time and reporting a bug. we wont enter in contact but your report will be read, if you wanna talk more about it go to foruns".

I think he didnt read what i wrote.

I was so exciting w8 to complete the achievement and get my cool hat.... :(

Developers are still trying to pin down the problem and fix it. They haven't forgotten about us, but it seems like it's an especially tricky bug, so the most we can do is hang in there and wait a bit more.

I got a generic answer back from the GM, be prepared for that lol...
If they try to give you the run around, threatening to stop paying your subscription always works a treat. Also mention you are at an unfair advantage since others have received it but you haven't.
