Tagging Alani

 Sky crystal not tagging Alani

Update: Yay for hotfix (Patch 5.0.5) October 19

It is no longer possible for other players to tap Alani in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms while the Sky Crystal is being channeled.

Alani-tagging is back to how it is supposed to be. I'm glad the issue got sorted so quickly!

Old post

Just a head's up:

If you're one of those people who grinded sky shards for hours, and finally created their crystal, be mindful when you decide to pull Alani.

I feel very sorry for this guy, you can hear his disappointment in his voice -  I mean, grinding these shards for hours and then getting her stolen away like that...

If this isn't a bug, here's two things to pay attention to:

  • Don't announce in trade/general/even guild that you're going to use the sky crystal.
  • Find a quiet time on your server, early hours etc., find a spot that's away from the daily hubs, and then pull Alani.


  1. Ouch, that would suck... a lot. Poor guy. Hopefully he can ticket it and least get something back out of it.

  3. For clarification - latest hotfix has made it so it is impossible for other players to tap Alani while sky crystal is being channeled.

    1. I'm very glad about this, thanks for pointing it out. Good that some things get fixed so quickly!
