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!
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.

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.
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)
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.
