Hunter Beta Issues - Not a Bug, Fixed and Actual Bugs

Recommended Posts

We have a large post over on the WoW Classic beta forums where Blizzard are addressing all the outstanding issues with Hunters. We have a huge amount of problems listed below, from the now expected "not a bug" things players report that are actually working as intended, to bugs that have already been fixed or will be very soon, and actual bugs that aren't fixed yet but are on the known issues list.

Greetings!

Since the beginning of beta, we’ve seen a lot of bug reports around the Hunter class in particular, and we’ve been working diligently over the past weeks to shore up some of the issues that players have been reporting to us. We felt that it would be helpful to post an update on our progress as well as to clear up some confusion around issues that were reported that are behaving consistently with the Reference client and are not considered to be actual bugs.

The following issues are behaving as expected and are considered to be “Not a Bug” (we’ll be updating the Not A Bug list with these issues as well):

  • Hunter “dead zone” is working as expected and is consistent with the Reference Client
  • A wolf pet’s Howl buff is consumed by anything that causes damage, even if it does not benefit from the buff
  • A Hunter pet’s Bite and Claw ability damage will not change in the tooltip based on the happiness of the pet. The tooltip will always display the damage as if the pet were Content (yellow). This is consistent with the Reference client
    • Note: This was reported several times to us based on 1.2 patch notes which seem to have been misunderstood. The intent here is simply that damage displayed is what the pet would deal if it were Content, not what it deals based on its current happiness level.
  • Traps can sometimes not be triggered if a player moves over them very quickly (i.e. a Warrior’s Charge ability). This behavior is consistent with the Reference client.
  • Auto Shot does not make a sound when cast during the animation of Hunter’s Mark and certain other abilities
  • Scatter Shot and Freezing Trap share diminishing returns

The following reported issues are either confirmed fixed in recent builds, or we have upcoming fixes currently in testing:

  • Crocolisk pets cause noticeable server lag when summoned
  • Beast lore does not display the targeted creatures armor in the tooltip
  • Feign death does not immediately drop the Hunter from combat in a Battleground
  • Feign Death does not cause the Hunter’s health and mana bar to zero out as if the Hunter was dead
  • Feign Death does not kill the hunter if they stay feigned the entire duration
  • Hunters are performing a WalkBackwards animation while strafing left during Auto Shot
  • Hunters have the ability to tame pets 2 levels higher than the Hunter’s level
  • Hunter Pets do not auto-cast Dash or Dive when engaging their target
  • The Bonus Armor from Thick Hide is dropping off of Hunter pets shortly after talenting into it
  • Sending Hunter pets into combat with a special ability such as Bite does not also trigger your pet to begin attacking
  • Multiple instances of Hunter’s Mark can be applied to a target
  • Hunters are unable to cancel the animation associated with placing a trap by moving
  • Explosive Trap and Frost Trap place the hunter into combat each time they apply their associated effects or deal damage
  • Enemies will ignore collision when in combat with a player
    • Note: This isn’t hunter specific and was a global issue. This did affect Hunter pets so we listed it here
  • Pets do not display a “ding” visual when leveling up
  • Activating a Night Elf Hunter’s Shadowmeld racial ability at the same time that the Eyes of the Beast cast completes will give the player control over pet movement without snapping to the Pet’s point of view
  • Ranged attacks cannot be blocked
  • Training pets may cause your client to become unresponsive
  • The spell animation for flare is significantly different than the animation used in 1.12

Please note that this list is not comprehensive. There have been many other issues that affect hunters that have been fixed recently, and we are still hard at work fixing other bugs.

The following issues are confirmed bugs and are still Known Issues as of our current Beta build:

  • Hunter pets that died while the hunter was in a battleground are resurrected in an unhappy state when the battleground ends
  • Auto Shot does not animate or display a missile when it fires immediately after Aimed Shot
  • Aspect of the Pack will sometimes attempt to apply itself to mounted party members
  • When a Quiver or Ammo Pouch is equipped, the tooltip for Aimed Shot incorrectly reflects an attack speed bonus from the Quiver or Ammo Pouch that it does not actually receive
  • When taming a pet that teaches the Hunter a new Beast Training ability, the chat message does not report the ability’s rank
  • The Hunter’s quiver may occasionally appear in the Hunter’s hand instead of the Hunter’s equipped weapon

We hope to have fixes in place for these issues before launch, but please note that we can never guarantee when or if any known issue will be fixed.

Thank you all for your reports on the WoW Classic Beta so far!

      The in-game quest helper obviously didn't exist back in Classic, so players resorted to various addons to help them track quests and Questie is here to fill in the blanks!
      What's Questie?
      Questie is a quest helper for Classic WoW, which adds icons to the map for quests which are currently present in your quest log. It's mainly designed to help you track down objectives and their location on the world map.


      Questie displays available quests and objectives on the world map.
      Not all functions have been ported over to Classic so far and the addon is still under heavy development, but it's working quite well and you will be able to test it out during the final global stress test. Don't forget to report bugs and join their Discord to chat with the development team! The addon isn't currently available through the Twitch app, so you will have to download and install it manually.
      Click here to download Questie from WoWInterface
      So far, we looked at multiple Classic addons including AtlasLootClassic,  Azeroth Auto Pilot, and TukUI. We will continue to preview interesting Classic addons on a regular basis, as we approach launch.

      Mark your calendars for August 13th! Two weeks ahead of launch, you'll be able to create up to three characters per account with US character creation opening a bit earlier than elsewhere.
      If you can't wait to play Classic and would like to reserve your name, you will have the chance to do so starting August 13th. Americas character creation will open slightly ahead of said date and an active subscription is required in order to create up to three characters.
      Realm names will be announced later, but we know for now that that Classic will have Player vs Player, Player vs Environment, and Role-playing realms.
      Initially, Blizzard didn't want to separate EU realms by language (with the exception of Russian), but based on community feedback, they later decided to add French and German realms to the pool of available Classic realms. We're still waiting on more details on the US server structure.

      Create Your Character
      If you’re eager to claim your character name in WoW Classic, take note: we’ll be opening character creation on Tuesday, August 13.*
      Players with an active subscription or game time on their account will be able to create up to three characters per World of Warcraft account. We’ll have more information on realm names closer to launch, but rest assured—you’ll have plenty of time to figure out your plans for realm domination!
      * To align with other regions, the Americas character creation will occur slightly ahead of August 13.

      Today, we're looking at AtlasLootClassic, an addon which will be useful for browsing loot tables in WoW Classic.
      In Vanilla WoW, there was no Dungeon Journal, so players relied on addons to quickly browse loot tables of all dungeon and raid bosses.
      AtlasLootClassic will be available for Classic when it's out and you will be able to install it straight through the Twitch app, just make sure the addon's enabled when logging into the game. Typing /al in the chat will open up AtlasLoot, where you can sort loot tables by dungeon, raid, and boss.

      There will be a final global stress test soon and if you're looking for a sleek elegant UI for Classic, don't forget to check out TukUI!

      WoW Classic Beta ended last week and there was supposed to be a final global stress test scheduled for next week on July 25th, but Blizzard today announced they're not quite ready and need more time before the final pre-launch worldwide test.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hello.
      We’re hard at work preparing for the launch of WoW Classic, and we’ve reached the conclusion that we’re not quite yet ready to do our Global Stress Test (previously scheduled for next week). While we’re still on track to launch WoW Classic on August 27, we need a bit more time before this final pre-launch worldwide test.
      We’ll have a more definite date Soon™ and we’ll post it here as soon as we do. Thanks for your patience!

      We're back to the interpretation of how exactly Vanilla patch 1.12 really worked and today we have more suspects being confirmed innocent, as Blizzard expand the Not a Bug list, from Cone of Cold and Arcane Missiles to Escape Artist and Hunter pet taunting.
      Not a Bug (source)
      Hi All,
      I’ve just updated the OP with the following:
      Cone of Cold is behaving consistently with the reference client. Arcane Missiles does not put the caster in combat . A Hunter’s Frost Trap ground effect will break Rogues out of stealth. The Berserking Troll racial ability is behaving as expected and matches the reference client. The pet that a Warlock has when initially logging into the game world does not restore a Soul Shard when dismissed by taking a flight path or moving out of range. The trigger range on Hunter’s traps are reduced by Stealth when the stealthed player is a similar or higher level than the Hunter. Soul Link cannot be dispelled by dispelling the Warlock’s pet. A Warlock’s Succubus pet cannot cast spells if they are out of line of sight of the target. Manually cancelling Stealth after using Vanish will remove the Vanish buff as well as the Stealth buff. Escape Artist has a very small chance to fail when used to escape an effect that has a decreased chance to be dispelled (e.g. a Rogue’s Vile Poisons talent). Rogues are not broken out of stealth by Blizzard until they take damage. Taunting Hunter pets that are set to Aggressive or Defensive mode will cause them to attack the taunting player. I additionally modified the wording on the following to be a bit more clear:
      “Melee leeway” is working as intended in both PvE and PvP.
