The patch is now live on EU, NA and AU servers, after some difficulties with offline realms and connectivity issues, so Blizzard have shared some known issues as well as some additional info on upcoming hotfixes for BoA legendary acquisition via Wakening Essences and the honor/prestige level changes.

Hello all,

Below is a list of known issues for patch 8.0.1. Please note that this list is not a complete depiction of what we're aware of, but a sampling of issues we believe players may encounter more often. We'll try to keep this updated with trending issues when possible.

General
Mounts: Gladiator's Proto-Drakes do not display information on how to obtain mounts in journal.
Sometimes when summoning a player as they change zones, the summon prompt will not appear.

Stat & Spell Squish Impacts
There are multiple issues with legacy spells & monsters scaling incorrectly.

Dungeon and Raid
Legacy Loot: Many raid creatures no longer drop gold.
Highmaul: Highmaul bosses are not dropping the appropriate amount of gold when the raid is set to mythic.Dungeon Journal - Baradin Hold: There exists an option to view Baradin Hold in 10/25 man Heroic even though the difficulty does not exist.
A Lua error may occur if you try viewing the dungeon journal from the bonus roll prompt while outside of the instance.

Communities/Guilds/Groups/UI
Communities will reference "Starter Edition" accounts as "Veteran Trial".
Guild: Inviting players who are currently in your group to a guild may produce an assertion.
Opening the Character Pane after equipping a newly acquired item on a character may result in a crash.
Looting the corpse after a boss encounter while in a group may produce an assertion.
Communities: Blank spaces will appear in Guild rosters if players have not logged in for multiple years.
Players may be unable to whisper cross realm when selecting whisper from Communities UI.

Compatibility
DX12: Intel PSO caching issue with Intel unreleased driver.
DX12: Crash may occur when game uses more GPU Memory than hardware allows.
Performance on some GPUs while using DX12 is lower than DX11.

And here are some previous tweets we already covered, so you're up to date on everything in case you missed it, featuring Allied Race unlock requirements, Brawler's Guild currency conversion and Mythic mounts:

Twas the night before Pre-Patch,when all through my house

Not a pc fan was stirring,not even my mouse

The alarm was set with care,in hopes that by morning

Green Pickle Jesus his updates would share.

Come morning to Warcraft I flew like a flash....

"Hang on a second where's my fullscreen ,sufferin' succotash!"

Anyone has any clue about this?All I've heard is that it was a known issue during beta...

My whole screen turns green with DirectX12 😄.

Yeah the changes for DX12 are absurd. I run DX11 but Fullscreen's still missing for me? The "Fullscreen slider" they've added doesn't change a thing and because I run at 1366x768 everything is blurry for me because the Windowed Mode always runs at 1600x900.

Based on what I read in the past hours,I think Blizz could implement their own fullscreen support,other game companies did that.As for DX11 they left that there in case there are any compatibility issues on other graphic cards with the DX12,but somehow,also removed fullscreen mode from that too. I am by no means a techno / IT guy,hardly an amateur to things like these,buuuut,the window fullscreen mode really gave my performance a swift kick in the behind .

As far as my knowledge goes, the current implementation of WoW's DX12 should only be used on computers with AMD graphics. It adds no new effects or imaging technology, it just changes how the rendering engine works, so you won't miss any eyecandy by disabling it. It makes AMD graphics based computers faster, but may slow down or crash on Intel / Nvidia machines. Stick to the DX11 version if you are experiencing instabilities, DX12 is still considered a "public test" edition.

so, they added the random generation Legendary tokens back in...but you can only buy your class version? At least as of a little while ago that was how it was.

 

My hunter main has no need of any legendaries as he has them all.

Nor am I going to roll another hunter.

So, I have essences I can't spend on anything.

I would like to be able to purchase tokens for other classes.

Where is the best place to offer comment/complain about this?

You can change the skins at the place you put ap in traits of the artifact in your order hall.Transmog thing is only there for BfA where you wont have your artifact weapons on you.

      Scripe, the Raid Leader of Method and Guild Master of Echo, admitted he was involved in real money trading with the Gallywix boosting community.
      Blizzard recently suspended some members of the Gallywix boosting community that were involved in exchanging gold for real money.
      Today, Scripe confirmed that he decided to buy gold directly from Gallywix instead of buying WoW tokens, and the agreed exchange rate was apparently 50 USD/EUR for 1 million gold, based on the following spreadsheet posted on Reddit.
      Placeholder for tweet 1290652868115128322 In case the above tweet gets deleted.

      For the World First Ny'alotha Race progression when there was no Corruption Vendor, Method needed to buy BoE items with the best Corruption Effects for millions of gold across all servers and transfer them to Tarren Mill.
      The total expenses for BoE items and WoW tokens came to a whopping 128,473,245 gold, and you can find a list of all items the guild purchased here.
      Core members of Method raid team have reformed as Echo and the guild is lead by Scripe.

      SauceISR discovered something strange going on in Quel'thalas on the Shadowlands Beta.
      There is a Void Elf-like shield (skybox?) in one of the areas in Quel'thalas. It currently has no spawns/NPCs, and we do not know what purpose it should fulfill. Maybe it was intended for Void Elves at some point but was later scrapped during development. What do you think? Anyway, it's a cool find! You can check out MrGM's video of the skybox below.

      In the meantime Team BFC also scored a World First Mechagon Junkyard +32 clear, but there is no video available yet, so we will post that separately.

      It seems there have been some issues with a few servers and the connections between Garona and Icecrown and Malygos won't happen tomorrow as planned, but at a later date.
      Realm Connections (source)
      Due to a previously unforseen issue, we have decided to hold off on connecting Garona to Icecrown+Malygos until a later date, to be determined. The other listed realm connections will go ahead as planned tomorrow. The connections still happening tomorrow after extended maintenance:
      Realm Connections (source)
      During a special maintenance period (currently planned for 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. PDT (10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. EDT) on Thursday, August 13), the following realm connections will be made:
      The Frostwolf and Vashj realms will join Drak’Tharon, Firetree, Malorne, Rivendare, Spirestone, and Stormscale . The Blackrock realm will join the Azjol-Nerub and Khaz Modan realms. The Bloodscalp, Boulderfist, Maiev, and Stonemaul realms will join the Quel’dorei and Sen’jin realms. Garrosh will join Aegwynn, Bonechewer, Daggerspine, and Hakkar. We are planning more realm connections for low-population realms, and we will post further notifications like this one in the coming weeks.
      Thank you!

      Mirror of Envious Dreams is an interesting costume toy from Revendreth that makes your character permanently (for now) wear the full Tier 3 or Tier 6 sets even though you don't physically possess the items that form the set. The item currently has no cooldown on the Beta.

      The toy comes from a chest in Revendreth's starting area. The illusion has a 10-minute duration,  no cooldown, and remains on during combat and mounting.
      Using the toy makes your character randomly wear either the full Tier 3 or the Tier 6 set.


      We're not sure if the toy will go live in its current form, but it will probably be limited by cooldown as it would be unfair to those who bought the Tier 3 pieces through the Black Market Auction House.
      Thanks to @Blainiefor the tip and images.
