It seems N'zoth is a bit stickier than Blizzard were planning and was staying around even after he was cleansed, and today's hotfixes fix that!
May 24 (source)
Brother Pike has reviewed the ritual and will now properly remove the Gift of N'Zoth for Alliance players that complete “His Eye Upon You”. Nailok has consulted Akunda and should now properly remove the Gift of N'Zoth for Horde players who complete “His Eye Upon You”. Players who previously completed “His Eye Upon You” should properly be cleansed of their previous Old God corruption. Previous hotfixes.
The Classic "Not a Bug List" has been updated with new entries, including WANTED signs not having "!", fall damage being equivalent to expected and verified values, and no player animations when looting and interacting with quest objects.
I’ve added several items to the list in the OP:
Long quest objectives don’t have text wrapping. Fall damage is equivalent to expected and verified values. Broadcast text can be seen multiple times if multiple players interact with the same NPC. WANTED signs do not have “!”, and are also not highlighted. Player characters do not animate when looting/interacting with quest objects (e.g. collecting pumpkins). Gnomes and Taurens are the correct size. The last one has been carefully verified.
The initial stress test has ended on Classic Beta, but the stress test realm will remain accessible for play until Thursday, May 23 at 6:00 pm PDT, meaning you still have enough time to play within the level 1-5 range if you were invited, because many players had difficulties logging in to the game for many hours.
UPDATE: It seems Closed beta realms are back up for testing, or were never offline to begin with (needs confirmation).
For the time of the stress test, Closed beta realms aren't available, but should be after the stress test realm goes down. Here's a blue post from Blizzard:
At this time, we have wrapped up our active testing period. The stress test realm will still be available for play until Thursday, May 23 at 6:00pm PDT. If you were selected for just the stress test, there will be no realm to login to at that time tomorrow.
The closed beta realms will soon be available again for those testers.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the WoW Classic stress test!
While the stress test schedule's fluid, the next one is planned for May 29th and the level cap will be raised to 10.
Stress Test 2: Wed May 29– Thurs May 30 Stress Test 2: Wed Jun 19– Thurs Jun 20 Stress Test 3: Thurs Jul 18– Fri July 19
The PvP Honor System and Warsong Gulch will be available for testing on Classic Beta later today. If you've got Beta access, queuing up for the battleground requires your character to be level 10 or higher.
Beta players will be able to test out the battleground until Sunday. You can queue up for the battleground by talking to the Warsong Gulch battlemaster in capital cities.
Greetings Beta Testers,
Starting on the afternoon of May 24, we will be enabling the PvP Honor System and the Warsong Gulch Battleground in the WoW Classic Beta realms. Beta players are invited to queue for Warsong Gulch from 12:00 p.m. PDT to 4:00 p.m. PDT on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26 as we try to spin up as many instances of the battleground as possible. While we’re targeting that timeframe to help capture data, players who are logged into the beta will be able to queue for Warsong Gulch at the Warsong Gulch battlemaster in capital cities at any time throughout the weekend.
As a reminder, queuing for Warsong Gulch requires your character to be level 10 or higher.
We have a few known issues related to Warsong Gulch:
The Battleground Scoreboard does not currently display Flag Captures and Flag Return statistics. The Battleground Scoreboard stat numbers are misaligned with player names. Have fun racking up those HKs and don’t forget to submit any bugs or issues that you encounter using the in-game bug reporter.
Even wondered how hard it is to play WoW on your TV using a controller? We tried just that and it's easier than you might think. In this article, we're taking a closer look at how to play the game using a controller.
Note: This is mainly intended for leveling and world quests, not end-game raiding.
ConsolePort: A WoW addon which natively supports Xbox and DualShock controllers. WoWMapper: Third-party software for keyboard and mouse emulation. This software is not against the ToS, because it does not automate your gameplay. Multiboxers are without any issues using ISBoxer for instance. Xbox or a DualShock controller: Alternatively, you can use a Steam controller and enable Stream streaming. Setup instructions can be found here. DualShock's touchpad acts like a mouse, which is quite nice. A long HDMI cable: In case you decide to hook up your PC to a TV. Instructions
Extract ConsolePort to Interface/Addons. The addon can be downloaded through the Twitch app too. Make sure the addon is enabled when you log in to the game. Install WoWMapper and connect the controller to your PC via cable or bluetooth. Make sure the controller is recognized by your operating system. Log in to the game and make sure ConsolePort is enabled. Now it's time to choose your controller layout. Grats, you can now start playing the game with a controller. (Optional) Enable Action Camera for extra immersion by typing /console ActionCam full, /console ActionCam basic or /console ActionCam default, depending on whichever you prefer most. You can turn it off by typing /console ActionCam off command.
