Burning Crusade Classic Known Issues List

Recommended Posts


As the BCC beta has begun, Blizzard have also listed some known issues that they've noticed in comparison to the original Burning Crusade, so players testing it can know what doesn't need to be reported:

Below is a list of known issues for the initial WoW Classic Burning Crusade Beta release (build 38043). Please note that this list is not comprehensive and is not a complete depiction of what we’re aware of, but a sampling of issues we believe players may encounter with some regularity. We hope to have fixes to these issues in place soon for upcoming beta builds, but we cannot promise when or if any individual bug will be fixed.

As always, we encourage players to utilize the in-game bug reporter (and bug report mouseover hotkey – Default hotkey: F6) to send us information on bugs you encounter during the WoW Classic Burning Crusade beta.

Thank you!

      This week on the BCC beta we have some new PvP additions, as level 70 Battlegrounds and Arena Skirmishes have been added! 
      BCC Beta Additions (source)
      We’ve enabled Battlegrounds and Arena Skirmishes on the Badge of Justice realm, allowing those activities to be tested at level 70 with template characters.
      Speak to Donjon in Shattrath to be sent to Orgrimmar or Stormwind, where you’ll find “King” Dond offering gear suitable for PvP.

      A new patch is coming to Classic tomorrow, with the World Buff-saving Chronobbon Dispenser, buff priorities, spell batching removed and some changes to Naxxramas and some items! 
      1.13.7 Notes (source)
      With scheduled weekly maintenance, WoW Classic will be updated to Patch 1.13.7.
      World of Warcraft: Classic Patch Notes
      Version 1.13.7
      Chronoboon Displacer
      Players who complete Chromie’s quests in Andorhal can obtain an ancient artifact of Bronze Dragonflight magic. Use the Chronoboon Displacer to store any world buffs such as Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer, Warchief’s Blessing, and Spirit of Zandalar for later use. Click the Supercharged Chronoboon Displacer to restore your buffs with their previous remaining durations intact. You may not benefit from additional world buffs until you have restored any that you currently have stored in the Supercharged Chronoboon Displacer. Gameplay Adjustments
      Beneficial buff priority system Beneficial buffs are now prioritized, similarly to how debuffs have been prioritized. This should help prevent situations where limited-duration or low impact buffs such as Renew, Rejuvenation, or 6-piece set bonuses would “push off” important buffs such as Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer or Flask of the Titans when used on a player that is near the buff limit. Mark of the Champion, Rune of the Dawn, and Seal of the Dawn’s benefits are now marked as “passive” auras and will no longer count towards the player buff cap. Spell batching removed The 400ms “spell batch” window has been reduced to 10ms. This should cause most player abilities to behave in a more responsive way, with damage and healing applied to targets faster. Certain operations in the game now resolve faster, such as purchasing multiple quantities of items from vendors rapidly. Paladin seals will now persist on the Paladin for a very short time after they’re replaced by a different seal, so that “seal twisting” remains possible. Naxxrammas
      There is now no area of the raised platform in Heigan the Unclean’s encounter space that is safe from Heigan’s mana burn while Heigan himself is on the platform. Fixed a few areas in the Heigan the Unclean encounter space where Plague Waves could overlap and deal double damage. Items
      Made several fixes and improvements to the combat behavior of guardians summoned from items such as the Vanquished Tentacle of C’thun, Defender of the Timbermaw, and Arcanite Dragonling to make them more likely to engage in combat in a wider variety of situations. Shadow Oil and Frost Oil can now proc while the player is on the Global Cooldown. Developers’ note: Shadow Oil is still bound by an internal cooldown however, and this is intended. Resolved an issue that caused the Barov Peasant Caller trinket to only spawn 1 Peasant. Resolved several issues with the Eye of the Dead trinket: Spells such as Chain Heal and Prayer of Healing now only consume a single charge. Heal-over-time spells now properly consume a charge when used. Bug Fixes
      The Cryptstalker Headpiece is no longer missing part of the red eye glow effect. Resolved an issue that caused the Brimstone Staff and Rhok’delar, Longbow of Ancient Keepers to not properly animate. City Guards now once again correctly respond to /salute and /wave emotes.

      We have a new record for a Naxxramas clear in Classic, and it's a solid 3.5 minutes faster than the previous one, with a completely insane and game-changing approach!
      We've seen the 50 minute barrier get broken during last month's Raid Masters tournament, but now we have a regular clear (well, an extraordinary clear really) by Progress who have gotten the run down to 45 minutes and 18 seconds! And to top it all off there's the insane 24 SECOND Sapphiron kill to go with it (usually Sapph takes about 2 minutes for other speed runs):

      By carrying the Thaddius Polarity Shift buff (which can give up to 190% increased damage) with them to Sapph (by waiting with the Thaddius kill until he cast a fresh Polarity Shift), they managed to get some insane amount of DPS. They also had to use Light of Elune to keep everyone alive, as they all had to stack in top of the tank, so he'd get the damage buff and have a chance at keeping aggro. But that's not all, as 38 players had to use Flask of Petrification (which gives damage immunity) to remove the Thaddius buff without dying and preserving their World Buffs.
      And here's the result in the DPS department:

      You can check the full logs here.
      And here's the full run as well, and the logs for it:
      Huge congratulations to Progress on this truly amazing and innovative strategy, and it's really great to see that there's always new and crazy things we can expect, even from a literally 16+ year old piece of content!

      Here comes another potential change for Classic, this one affecting only Chinese servers as the WoW Token has made an appearance!
      MrGM spotted the addition with the new Burning Crusade Classic build, as the token showed up on the Auction House with the "China Only" parenthesis:
      The WoW Token was added to the game back in Warlords of Draenor, and while it has allowed many to extend their game time by simply playing the game itself, it is also very widely used by bots to extend their play time, as they have access to large amounts of gold.
      While this is only the beta and only the China region, where playing habits are different, players have been very concerned with the addition of the character level boost and group finder additions, with many predicting the token is next in line to be added.
      It does seem unlikely that Blizzard would add the token to Classic in the West (at least for now), it's interesting to see it show up on this side of the servers with a clear "China only" marker, making it at least look like Blizzard is testing the waters to see player reactions to its addition.

      A new build went live on the Burning Crusade Beta, and here's what's new.
      Gear Vendors Removed
      Blizzard has removed Flaskataurs (vendors)  that offered free gear for testing.
      New Premade Realm
      Blizzard added a new realm called Badge of Justice, where players can create premade Level 70 characters, likely for the upcoming raid testing. For now, the realm remains offline.

      Item Changes
      Two items have been changed on the Beta. Drakefist Hammer and Annihilator are now Main Hand only. Previously, the items could be used in both hands.

      Vendor Changes
      Ge'ras in Shattrath no longer sells Primal Nether for Badges of Justice, the currency obtained from Heroic Dungeons.
