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 Blackwing Lair speed runs continue unabated, and there's been a few more fastest runs, with Progress claiming the most recent/current record, taking only 20 minutes and 30 seconds to get Nefarian and co. down! Their run was actually a massive jump both from the current second place holders SALAD BAKERS (1 min 10 sec) and from the last one we covered, GUSY (1 min 23 sec), so this one will probably stay up there for a while. To make things even better, they conjured up a little celebration video as well, with some of their... ahem, "fans" "cheering" them on at the start. The video itself is pretty short, with highlights of the kills and a pretty damn good soundtrack as well, so let's take a look.
      This particular speed required over half the raid to be warriors (21, in fact), and also starred 6 priests, 5 rogues, 3 paladins, 2 hunters, a warlock, a mage and a druid. Here are the current standings in the seemingly most prestigious ongoing race in Classic at the moment, with the top 10 being separated by all of 3 minutes:

      We have another South Park Live to Win champion on our hands! DrFive had taken it upon himself to ignore every non-boar mob in Classic and get to max level as close to how the boys from South Park did as possible (but obviously couldn't quite stay in Elwynn Forest only). This isn't the first time someone has taken up and completed this very weird challenge, as it was conquered on retail back in 7.3.5, but that one took a trip to Outland to finish things up.

      This Classic attempt took almost 10 days played, 10,000 boars downed, 30 deaths and 22 million damage, but it was a success in the end, so let's take a look at the final moments, as well as some details on how he got there (including a whole lot of rested XP, help in pre-clearing Razorfen Downs etc):
       
      The entire journey will be uploaded to youtube, and there's already 36 videos up there to check out if you really like to see boars die.

      In case you don't feel like checking days' worth of footage, there's this theorycrafting video from before Classic's release on the very subject, and while DrFive didn't necessarily keep to this exact path, it's still a fun video to check out!

      Congrats to DrFive on this very weird challenge, and to everyone that keeps doing weird things in all of WoW, as we love seeing things like this make the game feel more alive. Also, make sure to re-watch the Make Love, not Warcraft South Park episode that started all of this.

      It seems the crowding has been (somewhat) alleviated, as Blizzard have disabled layering on all US servers, after having enabled it for select servers around a month ago. It remains to be seen when the same will come for EU servers.
      Layers (source)
      At this time, we’re contracting from two layers to one on all realms in this region that were layered.
      As we’ve constantly watched and analyzed realm populations over the last few weeks, we’ve seen enough of a recent trend to justify returning to the intended population arrangement for each realm. At the same time, we’ve unlocked any realms that were locked for new character creation.
      All Paid Character Transfer restrictions have been left in place. We’re going to continue to use our ability to disable that service as a stopgap, and we’ll let you know when we open or close it further.

      Nefarian and co. are having a really bad month, as APES' previous speed clear record has been taken down! The previous fastest guild had already taken 26 seconds of the time we had previously reported, and the new champions GUSY have taken another 20 seconds off that, which may not sound like much, but when your clear is that fast to begin with, it's still pretty impressive.
      Shockingly, the raid had 18 warriors and 7 rogues, with the rest of the DPS classes fighting it out for 6 slots, and the priests also joined in the DPS fun with a whole lot of smites as well! Congrats to GUSY on the run, and we're sure to see even more extremely close clears, as the guilds now compete in terms of seconds.

      Today's hotfixes focus on Classic and a fix for the recently announced permanent addition to it, War Games.
