Not a Bug List: August 30th

Recommended Posts

It looks like the Not a Bug list isn't going anywhere as we got our first post-launch issue! We have the dreaded escort quests coming up and the fact that escort NPCs really want you to stay close come up, as well as more frequent mob spawns in certain conditions.

Added the following to the list above:

  • Non-targeted, group, or AoE buffs will not affect party or raid members if you are flagged for pvp and your party or raid members are not flagged for pvp, or vice-versa.
  • It is much easier to not get quest credit for escort quest objectives in WoW Classic than in Battle for Azeroth. Follow your NPC allies closely to ensure quest credit is obtained!
  • Monsters will respawn more aggressively when reduced past certain thresholds of their original populations in many areas of the game. This is working correctly and is consistent with the reference client.

And here's the full list, updated with the above:

As we’ve discussed before, the nature of WoW Classic sometimes invokes different memories for different players, and this leads to certain misconceptions for some about what is or isn’t working as intended.

The following is a list of commonly-reported gameplay in WoW Classic that is not actually a bug, and is working as we expect it to:

  • Tauren’s hitboxes and their melee reach is slightly larger than other races.
  • Being critically struck while using /sit to sit does not cause abilities like Enrage, Blood Craze, and Reckoning to activate.
  • Using the “Automatic Quest Tracking” option does not auto-track newly accepted quests. (It instead will start to track an existing quest once progress towards an objective is started.)
  • Warrior health Regeneration is working at the expected rate.
  • Quests objectives and points of interests are not tracked on the map or minimap.
  • Completed quests are marked on the minimap with a dot. (and not a “?”)
  • Feared players and NPCs run fast.
  • Standing on top of other players while facing away allows spells and attacks to be used.
  • Creature respawn rates are much slower than in Battle for Azeroth.
  • NPCs which offer multiple quests may inconsistently display them as a dot or a “!” on the available quests list. They were inconsistent in 1.12, and we’ve reproduced the exact inconsistency they had back then.
  • Quests that are too low level for do not show up as a “!” in the game world.
  • Available quests do not display a “!” on the minimap.
  • On level up, the message: “Your skill in Protection increased to 15” was added in 1.12.1, and we’re intending to keep that.
  • You are unable to Polymorph enemy targets that are tapped by players with whom you are not grouped.
  • At all levels of player characters and enemies, aggro radius is set to the intended distance.
  • 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.
  • “Melee leeway” is working as intended in both PvE and PvP.
  • 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 and Felhunter 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.
  • The threat generated by Battle Shout is not capped at 5 party members and is increased when affecting targets such as Hunter and Warlock pets within the same party.
  • The chest at the end of the encounter with The Seven in Blackrock Depths does not prompt a loot roll. Beware of Ninjas!
  • Other players do not see a Hunter’s quiver on their back.
  • Shield Slam and other off-hand abilities does not proc extra attacks from Windfury.
  • Logging into World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth while playing WoW Classic on the same game account will disconnect you from WoW Classic. This is true in reverse as well.
  • Non-targeted, group, or AoE buffs will not affect party or raid members if you are flagged for pvp and your party or raid members are not flagged for pvp, or vice-versa.
  • It is much easier to not get quest credit for escort quest objectives in WoW Classic than in Battle for Azeroth. Follow your NPC allies closely to ensure quest credit is obtained!
  • Monsters will respawn more aggressively when reduced past certain thresholds of their original populations in many areas of the game. This is working correctly and is consistent with the reference client.

Hunter concerns:

  • 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.
  • 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, Wyvern Sting, and Freezing Trap share diminishing returns.
  • A Hunter’s Frost Trap ground effect will break players out of stealth.
  • The rate at which pet focus regenerates is not always consistent.
    • Note: While the actual amount of focus that can be generated per tick is inconsistent, the total amount generated over time is flat and consistent. There are slight variations in the time between ticks that cause this to display inconsistently.
  • Pet aggro radius is working properly and as expected. This is to say, it was extremely inconsistent in original WoW, and it remains inconsistent in WoW Classic.
  • Pets “remember” targets that they have been instructed to attack previously and when sending a pet to attack a different target, the pet will return to attack any remaining targets they were previously instructed to attack when the currently engaged target dies.
  • Pets that have been instructed to attack dead targets with a special ability or attack will attempt to approach and attack the dead target, but will return to the hunter’s side when the ability fails.
  • Other players do not see a Hunter’s quiver on their back.
  • Hunters can sometimes experience a slight delay before recasting Auto Shot after moving.
    • Note: There is a hidden “retry” timer that occurs if the hunter is moving when the normal swing timer finishes. This timer checks for hunter movement before trying to resume auto shot, and this timer refreshes every 500ms when the hunter is moving. This means that if a Hunter is moving and stops moving just after this timer refreshes, you need to wait until the retry timer checks again to validate that you are no longer moving and can resume casting auto shot. This is not a result of spell batching or server heartbeats, and is specific to the functionality of a Hunter’s Auto Shot. This is consistent with Auto Shot functionality on the Reference client.

We appreciate all of your feedback!

      We've seen some of the weirdness that came along with the process of opening the Ahn'Qiraj gates, including a whole faction blocking one person from getting Scarab Lord for 10 straight hours (and succeeding), but there's always more! The main focus of the activities is obviously PvP, but we also have some chronicles of the actual Scarab Lord questline in there as well, and we thought it might be nice to not only check out the recent Classic opening, but also find some truly old-school Vanilla videos as well!
      We start off with two videos from Gehennas EU (apparently the most PvP-heavy server in the region), as both Dreamstate and APES have made compilations of their lengthy experiences in various PvP scenarios, ranging from the gathering at the Un'goro entrance, bug farming, the re-taking of Duskwood as the Horde blockaded it, a particularly cute cameo, and just a whole lot of massive world PvP.

      Meanwhile, over on Herod:
       
      And now it's on to some old-school stuff, starting off with a perhaps less impressive video, but a historically important one, as it was the very first ever opening of the gates, on the Medivh US server!
      A more edited one:
      It really seems the vanilla videos were much more focused on the opening of the gates itself, as it was very hard to find really any PvP-focused videos, so let's take a look at probably the most famous AQ40 video instead, which inspired many to make machinimas, Jack's Ahn'Qiraj the Movie:
      And here's the original gate opening trailer by Blizzard themselves:

      We have a useful little discovery for enhancement Shamans in Classic, as you can combine the effect of Rockbiter Weapon with either Windfury Weapon , Flametongue Weapon or Frostbrand Weapon, so they're active at the same time! Spell batching makes this possible and it's not a universally useful technique, as it will spend a whole lot of mana, but there are plenty of situations where it might come in handy, from Vael, PvP or just the final burn phase of any boss fight if you have the mana to spare. Obviously Windfury is the best bet, as you can get all 3 of its swings with the extra 653 attack power from Rockbiter, packing quite a bigger punch.

      Here's the quick video and text explanation, and thanks to GideonAI for the heads up!

      Gorak's back with another of his Classic "guides", as the brave Orc has managed to clear the starting zone and found life outside it can be... different! In a pretty accurate description of what it's like to leave the Valley of Trials and assume the rest of the game will follow suit, and is honestly one of the things I miss most about retail. The machinima itself also reminds me of the old-school Vanilla videos in its simplicitiy and really captures that vibe well.

      The series has been going for 2 years now and is a pretty good watch so definitely check out some more of the 16 episodes made so far!
      And here's a couple words from the author:

      Today's hotfixes address a commonly mentioned discrepancy between Vanilla and Classic, as some AQ20 were turned un-tradeable in Classic. Blizzard have now fixed this for the Qiraji Hilt, Drape and Ring quest items, by making them non-stackable.
      August 7 (source)
      WoW Classic
      The Qiraji Hilt, Qiraji Drape, and Qiraji Ring quest items are now tradeable and will no longer stack. Developers’ note: In order to enable the ability to trade to eligible looters within 2 hours of looting the Qiraji hilts, drapes, and rings, we've removed the ability to stack multiples of them. Additionally, only one of these items are needed for the non-repeatable quest so there’s no reason for them to stack.

      Blizzard has applied a hotfix for Vicidus that prevented Frost Wands from weakening the boss in Temple of Ahn'Qiraj.
