My Zoom is horny

Post by Thupid » October 6th, 2016, 8:52 pm

Wish they would fix this bug with Zoom multiplying in the pet stable, I have sold more than 30 of these things and now, getting tired of clearing my pet journal.

Zoom just self replicates to the max 3 allowed in your journal (like the old Mr. Bigglesworth bug), and can be boxed and traded/sold. I sold a couple and then thought about it and stopped, as it's obviously not intended and could possibly be considered exploitative if Blizz felt like dropping the hammer on it.

Exactly, I hate having duplicates. I sell them for less than 100g, guess I will just have to wait until they fix this bug.

Maybe they fixed it? I'll try throwing my extras away to see. You can't make it replicate, it just does it on its own - not sure if it's time or zoning or whatever, but I keep ending up with 3 no matter what.

LOL! Great screenshot. Yeah, I'm back to 3 Zooms again. Wish they'd fix it, this drives me crazy!

Did you get him from the achievement or buy from the AH? As far as I can see the bug is related to the achievement.

Confirmed, with the latest patch they removed the self replicating zooms.

Yay for the fix - though I had to manually throw away the last batch of spawns in my pet journal.

I think they switched him to uncageable as well. All my cages seem to be gone, and I can't find any on the AH anymore.

I'm curious - are there people who bought the pet, but did not complete the achievement and subsequently lost it?

No, still have mine that I got off the AH for 100g.

Though you are correct, he is no longer tradable (and is now unique).
