WoW Classic "Not a Bug" List Update: January 7th

Recommended Posts

The Juju Flurry buff works just like Seal of the Crusader in that it increases your Attack Speed, but at the same time, lowers your DPS by the same amount. Blizzard filed a bug for this behavior which wasn't fixed until the Burning Crusade pre-patch, so the current behavior is not a bug.

Ok so the first screenshot is of my character pane showing my MH dps to be 100.6…I took off a piece of gear so that the math would be simple and as close to 100.0 DPS as possible. Now when I use JuJu Flurry which gives you +3% attack speed…that should make my base DPS 103.0 correct?

SORRY but Mod/Blizz employee you will have to delete the Space before dot com I don’t know why I couldn’t include my example screenshot. Also is this the place to report a bug?

here is the first screenshot of 100.6 dps.

Now below I will post a screenshot of juju flurry being used. As you can see the dps DOES NOT MOVE from 100.6 to 103.6…all that changes it the weapon attack speed AND IN FACT…THE ACTUAL DAMAGE OF THE WEAPON GOES DOWN AND IS NERFED AS WELL? So why would something thats supposed to be a BUFF actually hurt your damage?

Below is a BEFORE & AFTER example of how I start with 100.0 DPS and use Slice and Dice (+30% Attack Speed) and you will see how I go to 130.0 DPS which is CORRECT.

Hi All,

Wanted to chime in and mention that the Juju Flurry buff is currently matching the behavior exhibited in the 1.12 reference client. As others in this thread have correctly guessed at, Juju Flurry behaves similarly to Seal of the Crusader in that it increases your attack speed but also lowers your DPS by the same amount.

We also did some digging into our bug database from the Original WoW era and found that we had in fact filed a bug for this behavior while the original game was current, but the issue was not actually fixed until the Burning Crusade pre-patch (patch 2.0.3). As this bug was present throughout Original WoW, we do not currently consider it to be a bug and is merely an aspect of the original game that was carried over into Classic.

We will update the Not-A-Bug list with this information shortly. Thank you!

Below is the current list of all misconceptions that are working as intended in WoW Classic.

Blizzard LogoBlizzard (Source)

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.
  • Offhand attacks that occur while on-next-hit abilities such as Heroic Strike are queued do not suffer the dual wield to-hit penalty.
  • Eternal Quintessence is not yet available to players and will arrive in a future phase.
  • Stuns from procs such as Improved Revenge and Improved Concussive Shot do not diminish and are not diminished by Controlled Stun abilities such as Hammer of Justice and Kidney Shot.
  • Various Plans and Recipes from the Thorium Brotherhood are not available until later phases.
  • Practice Dummies in the Undercity cannot be attacked. There are no “Training Dummies” in WoW Classic.
  • Overpower procs will be lost if the Warrior changes targets away from the target that dodged.
  • The Eye of Shadow has a higher drop rate than many players expect.
    • Note: This was changed late in Original WoW to have a much higher drop rate.
  • The objective of the quest “Touch of Zanzil” will fail if the player is not targeting Doc Mixilpizil when they /lay command is used.
  • A summoned Infernal that is no longer under the control of the Warlock will only affect PvP flagged targets and targets that are on its threat table and will quickly despawn when no viable targets are available.
  • Some monsters have a “Thrash” mechanic and can proc multiple attacks against players in a very short duration.
    • Note: Most of these monsters can also “store” these procs and unleash them all several seconds later. An example of this is the Princess Theradras encounter in Maraudon. The Princess will store her attacks if kited and can land several attacks instantly when she catches up to her target. This behavior is consistent with the reference client
  • Righteous Fury grants additional threat on all holy abilities, not just attacks.
  • Sharpening stones have “hidden” level requirements and higher level stones cannot be used on lower level weapons.
  • The Juju Flurry buff increases attack speed but also lowers overall DPS by the same amount.

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.
    • NoteThere 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.
  • Reckoning stacks are lost when you mount up.
  • Reckoning stacks are lost when you initiate an auto-attack against a target and cancel it before it goes off.

We appreciate all of your feedback!

      Blizzard just outlined a new round of class changes hitting Season of Discovery on March 5. 
      (Source)
      As players continue to level up to 40 and experience all that Phase 2 has to offer, we’ve closely monitored in-game progress, feedback from the community, and bug reports. With scheduled weekly maintenance next week, we’ll make the following adjustments to some classes that are underperforming.
      Hunter Chimera Shot damage increased to 120% of weapon damage (was 100%) and Chimera Shot Serpent Sting damage increased to 48% of Serpent Sting damage (was 40%). Explosive Shot base damage done before Attack Power increased by 15%. Carve damage increased to 65% of weapon damage (was 50%). Mage Frostfire Bolt base damage increased by 50%, and its increased damage from bonus spell damage increased by 16%, identical to the value for Fireball. Spellfrost Bolt base damage increased by 50%, and its increased damage from bonus spell damage increased by 14%, identical to the value for Frostbolt. Regeneration, Mass Regeneration, and Chronostatic Preservation spell power coefficients increased by 88%. Developers’ notes: This is to compensate for Mage healers wearing primarily items which grant “damage and healing” instead of “healing”. Chronostatic Preservation mana cost decreased by 44%. Resolved some tooltip issues with Chronostatic Preservation. Paladin Seal of Martyrdom damage increased to 50% weapon damage per swing (was 40%). Seal of Martyrdom Judgement increased to 85% weapon damage (was 70%). Seal of Martyrdom Seal and Judgement effects now benefit from talents and effects that modify Seal of Righteousness, particularly Improved Seal of Righteousness. Warlock Grimoire of Synergy now increases damage done by the Warlock and their pet by 25% when it is active (was 5%). Warrior Devastate damage increased to 150% of weapon DPS (was 100%), before being increased by number of Sunder Armor stacks.

      The Stranglethorn Vale world boss Kha'damu surprisingly dropped a Level 125 sword in the Season of Discovery.
      This two-handed sword, named the Bloodthirst Blade, requires players to be at least Level 125 to wield it. Below is how the tooltip appears in-game:


      Given that the item is marked with the Unique (0) attribute, players cannot even loot it. This raises questions about the developers' intentions for this sword.

      Last month, the WoW community participated in a poll to determine the top class for Season of Discovery Phase 2, and we've got the results!
      Season of Discovery Phase 2 kicked off on February 8, and it's been interesting to see which class the community thought would shine, especially before the latest balance updates went live.
      Poll Results
      The Fury Mage spec emerged as the frontrunner, predicted by the community to excel in Season of Discovery Phase 2. Following closely behind were the Arms Warrior in second place and the Feral Druid in third.
      At the lower end of the spectrum, the Retribution Paladin received 2.31% of the votes, the Elemental Shaman garnered 3.13%, and the Destruction Warlock came in just slightly higher at 3.19%.
      Fury Warrior - 28.29% (957 votes) Arms Warrior - 13.39% (453 votes) Feral Druid - 10.4% (352 votes) Fire Mage - 5.56% (188 votes) Enhancement Shaman - 5.05% (171 votes) Balance Druid - 4.76% (161 votes) Shadow Priest - 4.76% (161 votes) Survival Hunter - 4.32% (146 votes) Combat Rogue - 3.64% (123 votes) Arcane Mage - 3.31% (112 votes) Destruction Warlock 3.19% (108 votes) Elemental Shaman - 3.13% (106 votes) Retribution Paladin - 2.31% (78 votes)

      Blizzard laid out their plans for Molten Core in their latest Season of Discovery update!
      The raid size at Level 60, which is the max level planned for Season of Discovery, will be 20. This applies to both Molten Core and an unannounced Level 50 raid coming in the next phase.
      Blizzard also explained Molten Core would be easier to scale from a 40-player raid down to a 20-player experience compared to other raids.
      (Source)

      Raid Size at level 60
      Recently a hot topic of debate is the raid size at level 60 and we’ve been watching the commentary on this closely. To help quell confusion, here’s a look at exactly what to expect in the net few phases in terms of raid size:
      The yet-to-be-announced level 50 raid will be a 20 player experience Molten Core will also be a 20 player experience in Season of Discovery Past that, we are still discussing exactly what raiding in the later tiers of Season of Discovery will look like in terms of raid size.
      For a bit of background, when we first concepted Season of Discovery we felt that it was perfectly natural for a version of Original World of Warcraft to have 40 player raids. This is partially because the development time needed to scale them was not planned within the scope of what we set out to accomplish on the aggressive schedule we have, but mostly because 40 player raids felt like such a defining characteristic of Original WoW and are utterly unique to this version of the game. It wasn’t really even in consideration to eschew them entirely.
      When we set out to create our level-up raids however, we did feel that asking people to field 40 players would be a tall ask at level 25. We wanted these first few raids to be somewhat easy to form pick-up groups for as well. As a result, we decided on 10-player experiences instead for the first two level-up raids. As we’ve played the game ourselves and watched how players approach community building, we’ve realized that we’ve set some communities up to potentially struggle a bit by asking them to recruit up from one or two 10-player raid groups to a full 40, should they choose to. As a result, we wanted make it clear now what our plans are to start “bridging” from 10 player raids to higher raid sizes.
      While overhauling all 40 player raids down to 20 would be theoretically possible, this may be prohibitively difficult and detract significantly from the other features and content we have planned to implement in a post-60 Season of Discovery. We are doing some investigation now to help us understand what would be needed and what the framework of the Original WoW data can support in this regard. There are some features that just cannot currently exist in Original WoW as well, such as Flex Raiding, so we are constrained in exactly what we are able to do here. Molten Core is definitely unique here in that it is simple enough mechanically and under the hood that it would be relatively easy to pare down to a 20 player experience.

      There's a whole lot of class tuning in today's hotfixes, as Druids, Hunters, Mages, Paladins Shamans and Warriors get a varying amount of changes. We also see the reduction to the much-discussed and very high Gnomeregan boss armor values, and tuning for the High-Yield Radiation Bomb.
      February 27 (Source)
      WoW Classic: Season of Discovery
      High-Yield Radiation Bomb adjusted: Its slow effect can now be removed with snare removal effects. Its damage-over-time is now correctly Nature damage and a Poison effect (was Magical). The initial damage of the bomb now works on enemies that are typically immune to slows. The initial damage of the bomb will now always go off when it hits. The increased armor value of certain mechanical bosses in Gnomeregan has been reduced slightly. Developers’ notes: The higher armor values on certain mechanical enemies in Gnomeregan was correct and intended, but we will adjust the armor on Crowd Pummeler 9-60 and Mekingeer Thermaplugg slightly to provide up to a 10% increase in physical damage received, depending on modifiers present. We also checked the Mechanical Managerie, and it is using the correct armor values. Druid Lifebloom mana cost reduced by 50%. Developers’ notes: Lifebloom refunds half its new base mana cost per stack when it expires or is dispelled. This part has always functioned in this way, and we’ve seen a bit of confusion around how the mana return portion of Lifebloom functions. Living Seed now heals for 50% of the critical heal that planted the seed (was 30%). This heal now blooms from non-periodic healing received, in addition to any damage taken. Nourish mana cost reduced by 27%. Moonkin Form now also reduces the mana cost of Moonfire by 50% and increases Moonfire periodic damage by 50%. Sunfire also benefits from this change. Moonkins can now cast non-healing Restoration spells without cancelling their shapeshift. This includes: Remove Curse, Remove Poison, Abolish Poison, Innervate, Rebirth, Revive, Mark of the Wild, and Gift of the Wild. Fury of Stormrage improved: when this rune makes Healing Touch instant, it now also makes it castable in all shapeshift forms. Lacerate critical strikes can now trigger Primal Fury. Nourish is now instant cast when Fury of Stormrage is active. Nourish no longer breaks Moonkin form when Fury of Stormrage is used to cast an instant version of the spell. Hunter Dual Wield Specialization no longer grants a 30% damage bonus to Raptor Strike for wielding two weapons of the same type. Mage Chronostatic Preservation no longer checks for a target within range or line of sight on the first cast. Its tooltip states that it has an Unlimited range, andthe first part of the ability now does, but the unleashed heal has a range of 40 yards (46 yards talented), which is unchanged. Paladin Crusader Strike now deals Holy damage instead of Physical damage, ignoring armor, and is now affected by Holy damage prevention. Crusader Strike is still considered a melee attack, and not a spell. Seal of Martyrdom can no longer trigger Art of War, and will no longer be triggered by Frost Oil or other weapon procs. Rogue Redirect no longer triggers or is affected by the global cooldown, and its own cooldown has been reduced to 10 seconds. Developers’ notes: when Redirect is combined in a macro with other Combo Point related abilities, it often does not function as expected. We recommend not including it in such macros. Main Gauche now generates 3 combo points on your target and base Energy cost reduced to 15. Just a Flesh Wound threat bonus increased such that Rogue tanks will generate approximately 30% more threat. Shaman Two-Handed Mastery rune now also provides 10% increased Attack Power and 10% increased chance to hit with spells after hitting a target with a two-handed weapon. Shamanistic Rage rune now grants 5% of the Shaman’s maximum mana per
      second, instead of a value scaling from Attack Power, Spell Power, or Healing Power. Spirit of the Alpha rune now grants the casting Shaman 20% increased Attack Power if they cast the spell on a target other than themselves. Earth Shield mana cost reduced by 67%, and charges increased from 3 to 9. The base amount healed now properly scales with level and is about 50% higher than previously at level 40. Power Surge tooltip revised to clarify functionality. This rune periodically grants mana every 5 seconds, equal to 15% of the Shaman’s intellect. Some potential timing issues that could have sometimes made it give less mana than intended have been fixed. Ancestral Guidance cooldown reduced to 1 minute (was 2 minutes). Warrior Rallying Cry now correctly benefits the Warrior's entire raid (was: the Warrior’s party only).
