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!

      It seems new Hunters are going to be a little lonely for a while in Season of Discovery and Classic Era. The quest that unlocks beast taming is currently bugged, but Blizzard are working on it.
      Tame (Source)
      We’re aware of this issue and working on a fix for it.
      We expect the fix to require realm restarts, so please keep an eye out for that.
      Thank you for your reports!

      Update: Blizzard have added the twice weekly reset for Sunken Temple PvP Rank 10 to the notes.
      Blizzard just shared the notes for this week's Season of Discovery Phase 4 launch! We have the launch time, raids and dungeons, new rune slots, runes from previous phases changed to baseline abilities, new world events, reputations and more.
      SoD Phase 4 Notes (Source)
      Phase 4
      Season of Discovery Phase 4 officially begins on Thursday, July 11 at 1:00 p.m. PDT (22:00 CEST). Players will be able to level up to level 60 for the first time, and will gain access to new dungeons, quest and zone content, and a variety of other fun features.
      July 11 at 1:00 p.m. PDT (22:00 CEST) – Phase 4 begins and the level cap is raised to 60. July 18 at 1:00 p.m. PDT (22:00 CEST) – The Tainted Scar and Storm Cliffs raid instances become available. July 25 at 1:00 p.m. PDT (22:00 CEST) – Onyxia’s Lair and the Molten Core raid instances become available. General
      All cosmetic trinkets such as the Atal’alarion’s Enchanted Boulder and the Bargain Bush are no longer trinkets and may now be placed in the Keyring for storage. Now, when you obtain one of these items, it will go directly to the keyring automatically. Please be sure to check there first if you feel you misplaced or lost the item. Developers’ notes: Inventory space in Season of Discovery is at a premium, but due to the fact the Classic Era client does not yet have the full collections interface that Cataclysm Classic has, we’ve enabled these items to function as toys and be stored in the Keyring as a stopgap solution so that players don’t feel like they have to choose between a fun toy item and bag space. This is not a permanent solution. Ziri Littlesprocket in Gnomeregan now has an option to allow players who own the 60% version of the Florescent Green Mechanostrider to obtain for a 100% speed version of the mount in exchange for 800g plus the original mount item. Mai’zin in Stranglethorn Vale ha had a few updates to his wares. He will offer players the option to upgrade their Golden Sabercat or Mottled Blood Raptor to a 100% version of the mount for 800g plus the original mount item. Bloodstained Commendation honor tokens are now purchasable for 25 Copper Slaughter Coins. Slaughter Coins are the new Blood Moon Currency earnable from player kills above level 58. The Alliance have gained access to a version of the Warchief’s Blessing world buff effect: The Might of Stormwind. This new buff is gained for turning in a new quest “End of the Dark Horde” in Stormwind and is mutually exclusive with Warchief’s Blessing. The maximum of Rank 10 is now available in PvP. Rune Engraving and Discoveries
      Players may now earn additional runes for the cloak slot as well as special weapon skill and spell school specialization runes for the ring slots. These runes are hidden in various places all across Azeroth, waiting to be discovered. Good luck and happy hunting! A number of former rune abilities have been converted to baseline abilities and are now learned via spell books. These and other special Season of Discovery spell books are available to purchase from Milton Sheaf in the Stormwind Keep library in Stormwind for alliance players, and from Zor Lonetree at Grommash Hold in the Valley of Wisdom in Orgrimmar for horde players. Priests can now discover a method to unlock the ability for utilize a second Priest-specific racial ability such as Fear Ward, Devouring Plague, and Starshards. Developers’ notes: We’re going to be keeping the nature of this discovery secret, but there are elements of this process that involve a one-time server-wide unlock. May the power of the light (or shadow) guide your way! Raids and Dungeons
      Starting on July 18, Azuregos and Doom Lord Kazzak will become available as instanced single-boss raid encounters. You may find portals to the Tainted Scar in the Blasted Lands and to the Storm Cliffs in Azshara. These encounters are designed to be completed with 20 players but the instances themselves allow up to 40 players to be present. The difficulty and number of loot drops does not scale according to the number of players in the instance, however. These two raids reset twice per week. Starting on July 25, Onyxia’s Lair becomes available. Like Azuregos and Kazzak, this encounter is tuned for 20 players, but the instance allows up to 40 players to be present. The difficulty and number of rewards does not change based on the number of players present, however. This raid resets twice per week. Starting on July 25, The Molten Core becomes available. In Season of Discovery Molten Core is a 20-player raid featuring 11 bosses. Players will find a new variable difficulty system in place to allow for additional challenges and in some cases, additional rewards. Players may speak with the Hydraxian Waterlords agent inside the raid instance to change the difficulty. This raid resets once per week. Bosses in the Sunken Temple raid now provide a sizable amount of experience points when killed. The Sunken Temple raid now resets twice per week. Many classic Molten Core raid drops and endgame dungeon drops have been revamped for Season of Discovery. Additionally, many brand-new item rewards have been added to various different types of endgame content for players to discover. A new max-level dungeon has been added to the game. Players will need to explore Azeroth to discover how to attune to and access this new dungeon. Most dungeon boss creatures over level 55 will now drop a currency called Tarnished Undermine Real which may be exchanged to a certain vendor in Booty Bay for exciting rewards. This currency drops from each boss once per day for each player in the group. The Dungeon Upgrade set item quests will be available in the game starting on July 11 along with the launch of Phase 4. Players can discover new and improved versions of the classic 8-piece dungeon sets in various classic dungeons and upgrade these items into powerful new versions with several role-specific variants via the Dungeon Upgrade quest chain. World Events
      A new timed event has been added to the Searing Gorge, Blackrock Mountain, and Burning Steppes: Blackrock Eruption. Every 2 hours, Blackrock Mountain will become unstable, causing additional spawns to appear and adding additional environmental hazards to certain areas. While the event is active, players will gain access to a number of daily quests that will award reputation with The Thorium Brotherhood and Hydraxian Waterlords. Participating in daily quests and killing certain event-specific creatures in these zones will award players with Firelands Embers which can be exchanged along with Thorium Brotherhood crafted items to upgrade said crafted items into stronger variants. These items may be exchanged at Lohktos Darkbargainer in Blackrock Depths. While the event is active, player kills award zero Honor in Searing Gorge or Burning Steppes, however, player kills award triple Honor inside Blackrock Mountain itself. Nightmare Incursions event and quests have been adjusted. The repeatable mission quests have been converted to daily quests and may no longer be repeated multiple times on the same day. Daily quests now have a maximum level and can no longer be obtained. For Feralas and Hinterlands this is level 53. For players at max level wishing to finish off their Emerald Wardens reputation, special repeatable versions of the Moonstones, Moon Dragon Scales, and Moonroot gathering quests are available. These quests award no gold or experience but continue to award reputation through exalted with the Emerald Wardens. The power level of certain creatures within Nightmare Incursions has been reduced to make these quests more manageable in smaller groups or solo. Reputations
      The Argent Dawn and Timbermaw Hold factions’ quartermaster vendors now allow players to exchange the base version of the crafted reputation items that they previously offered along with some other thematically appropriate materials for high quality epic versions of those same items. These new upgrade items may be purchased at Honored with Argent Dawn and Friendly with Timbermaw Hold respectively. These items are Bind on Pickup and require skill in the profession correlating with the item themselves to be worn. Developers’ notes: These new epic upgrade items are in many cases pre-raid best-in-slot or outright best-in-slot, for Phase 4, for one or more classes or roles. Our intent here is to take crafted recipes that were lackluster before and give players a reason to craft and trade them so that they may be upgraded. We also want to give players with Blacksmithing, Tailoring, or Leatherworking a selection of very good items to work towards that are likely to maintain their value for a decent timeframe. Additional rewards have been added for earning different levels of Hydraxian Waterlords reputation. Duke Hydraxis in Azshara will make his selection of goods available when players reach Honored or better with the Hydraxian Waterlords.

      You must earn at least 15 Honorable Kills in PvP to rank up starting July 15 in Season of Discovery, as Bloodstained Commendations alone will no longer suffice for progression beyond Rank 7!
      (Source)
      Greetings,
      As we prepare to release WoW Classic patch 1.15.3 tomorrow and open Phase 4 on Thursday, we want to remind you that any players who gained Honor via Bloodstained Commendations will need to make sure to gain at least 15 Honorable Kills against players of the opposing faction in normal PvP (i.e. Battlegrounds or World PvP, not in the Blood Moon event) during the week, in order to be eligible rank up the week that begins on July 15.
      Gaining honor from Bloodstained Commendations alone is not sufficient to rank up, regardless of the amount of Honor gained in this way. To summarize, the requirements to progress past Rank 7 are:
      Level 60 At least 15 HKs Sufficient Honor to increase in rank Reminder: in Phase 4, the maximum rank in PvP is Rank 10.
      Please note that Bloodstained Commendations will not be purchasable with the old STV Blood Moon Coins after the patch on July 9. We recommend that you use Massacre Coins to buy any Bloodstained Commendations NOW. After the patch, they will no longer be available using that currency.
      Thank you!
