Need help with Baa'l

Post by Lazuliann » August 27th, 2018, 1:41 am

I've collected all the pebbles and I can see him in Frostfire Ridge, I also have a fully upgraded Uuna, including the word tour portion at the end.
However, she does not debuff him at all.
She just stands there and does and says nothing, while Baa'l retains all his health.
I've left the zone and come back, I've tried resummoning her several times, but nothing works.
What else can I do? I worked hard for this pet, and I want it.

I read somewhere, you need to "kill" him with Snail-toy (https://www.wowhead.com/item=98136/gastropod-shell) from ToT to reset him..
When Baa'l respawn Uuna should debuff him as intended.

I haven't begun the hunt yet myself, so no idea, if it works or not.

Unfortunately, I do not have that toy, despite weekly farming, nor do I know anyone with the toy.

You can farm it, if you don't kill the bird boss. Just kill the 5 snails, go out, reset, go back in: 5 more snails to kill. Repeat.

I have the toy, but sadly you play on the "wrong" side of the Atlantic, so I cannot help you, beyond hints..

Maybe it's worth waiting for someone else with Uuna to come by, or asking on one of the public chats (General/Trade)? I'd try to help you, but I also play in the wrong region.

I had this glitch as well. I tried leaving the area, removing Uuna and bringing her back, etc. However, the snail toy DID work. It killed him and once he spawned again (almost immediately), Uuna was able to do her magic.

Thank you all for the replies.
I'll keep trying, I made a ticket, because this event is clearly not working as intended.
Hopefully if I wait long enough maybe Baa'l will be reset.

I finally received a reply to my ticket.
The GM said it's a known issue that the Devs are aware of, but there is no solution on the horizon as yet, and to keep watching the hotfix notes.
I was told, "It may take a while for things to get fixed".

IN the meantime Baa'l appears to be unobtainabaa'l on Feathermoon.
There was another horde out there today with his upgraded Uuna and it wasn't working for him either, just like the two alliance nelves that were there last night watching their Uunas not working.
No one I know has the Gastropod toy, and no one has responded to my requests for anyone with the toy that can use it on Baa'l.

We did it about an hour ago. We waited until we found someone who had the Gastropod toy. Everyone there, we were not grouped up, we had everyone dismiss their Uuna. The person summoned the Gastropod, it killed Baa'l. He reset then we had 1 person, and only 1 summon their fully geared Uuna 10 sec after he respawned, and he shrunk to the small size and we were able to battle him.

NOTE: that if you bring someone in with the toy they HAVE to have completed all the pebbles or not have already tamed him, or they will NOT be able to see him. We had that problem with someone who was nice enough to come into the group but he had already collected Baa'l so he could not see him. Same with another person who didn't start the quest line yet, they couldn't see him either.

I finally managed to get him.
I was camped out there for the day, and another person who was trying to get Baa'l as well, remembered me from the conversation we had at the time.
He came back in the evening with a friend who had the toy to reset Baa'l.
We were phased from each other so he didn't see me there, but I had told him I would be there all day, hoping for a way to get the pet.
He remembered and invited me to a group with him and his friend, so I was finally able to get Baa'l.
I love the battle pet community!
