WoW: Up to 7 days bans and media downgrade for Stygia Explorers

Players who exploited the infinite Stygia farming exploit in WoW Shadowlands despite Eye of the Dungeon Master will receive a ban of up to seven days, depending on how much they exploited the bug. In addition, the collected Stygia of these players will be removed and the ranks of their media will be downgraded. How many ranks they lose also depends on the intensity with which they exploited the Stygia bug.

It is not forbidden to collect as much Stygia as possible, but the Eye of the Dungeon Master will eventually stop this and make staying in the Maw almost impossible. In addition, there are rare mobs like Reverberating Misery that you can always defeat for some Stygia. Since these rare mobs have a high respawn time, you won't be punished for them either.

Players exploiting the bug kept spawning and defeating many small mobs in a cave at coordinates 47/76 in the maw. These mobs did not count towards the progress of the Eye of the Dungeon Master. Since Stygia itself is only available in rough quantities via the quests in the Maw, this was an opportunity for players to buy an extremely large amount of the resource and stock up on any amount of socket slots via Spatial Realignment Apparatus and get all of their mediums to item level 226 thanks to Fragment of Unbound Reality. Below you can see how the ranks of the mediums are distributed and how many ranks the exploiters lost.

  • 7-day ban, -3 ranks on all media and exploited Stygia removed
