The BCC Launch Experience: Gryphon Singularities, Almost Instant Fel Reaver Kills, Huge Crowds, Lag and More

Recommended Posts


The Burning Crusade Classic finally launched today and we'll be taking a look at some player experiences, from the giant masses piling up in front of the Dark Portal just before it opened, to the Thrallmar traffic jams, immediate Fel Reaver kills and Valor Hold... gryphon singularities??

We'll start off with the pre-entry ones, as the Classic servers were filled with so many players just itching to get in, it was quite something to behold:

Then we're going through the Dark Portal, into the Horde town of Thrallmar, where it's getting really busy:

Meanwhile, the Alliance counterpart, Valor Hold, was having some serious gravity-related anomalies, as a gryphon singularity formed and was not letting any players out:

Some intrepid scientists even braved the phenomenon and got some up-close images from within the event horizon:

And further into the peninsula, some players gathered up and went for a 33-minute-after-launch Fel Reaver kill!

Despite latency and disconnect issues due to some DDoS attacks over on the NA servers, the launch seems to have gone fairly well overall, especially compared to the pre-patch arrival, and it's great to see so many players enjoying Outland once more!

      Blizzard have implemented fixes for two large issues affecting the BCC AH! 
      Auction House (Source)
      With hotfixes earlier today that are in place on all realms, we’ve implemented updates to address Auction House service issues on the largest Burning Crusade Classic realms.
      In today’s hotfixes update later, you’ll see them listed like this:
      Auction House
      Implemented settings changes intended to lower the time it takes to search the Auction House. Players who list, bid, buy out, or cancel a very large number of auctions may now incur a delay between consecutive actions. As before, we’re paying very close attention to the Auction Houses, and we’ll make further adjustments as necessary.

      Some very short hotfixes for BCC today, as the Netherwing reputation quest-starting NPC arrives to Shadowmoon Valley and Aran gets better at facing people.
      June 9 (Source)
      Mordenai has arrived in the Netherwing Fields of Shadowmoon Valley with a request for your kindness. Fixed an issue where Shade of Aran in Karazhan can fail to face his target when casting Dragon's Breath.

      The hotfixes continue with the second edition in 2 days:
      June 8 (Source)
      Players can now obtain pets from the Original World of Warcraft Collector's Edition from Landro Longshot in Booty Bay if the license is on their account. Prayer of Mending can no longer bounce to targets outside of the priest's group. Mage’s Arcane Blast cast time reduction is now effective immediately with subsequent casts. Feign Death will no longer drop the Hunter from combat during raid encounters, consistent with the mechanics in the original Burning Crusade. Resetting raid encounters using Feign Death is still possible. Felbane Slugs and Hellfire Shot are once again available from ammunition vendors. Fixed an issue where the Communal Idol of Life relic was not increasing Druid’s Rejuvenation periodic healing. Fixed an issue where the Karazhan Chess Event can fail to give loot upon defeating the encounter. Shattrath daily quests that are actively offered by the Consortium are now shareable. Fixed an issue where some WoW Classic items were granting stat values of 1 instead of the stats displayed on their tooltips. Fixed an issue where WoW Classic items would sometimes drop with unusual stats, or stats that did not exist on those items in the original game.

      Epic gems are already available in the game on the Burning Crusade Classic live servers, but how is that even possible?
      In Patch 2.4.2, Blizzard gave Brilliant Glass a chance to contain epic gems. Given that Burning Crusade Classic servers run on Patch 2.5.1, players can obtain epic gems like Seaspray Emerald through the Jewelcrafting item, but they cannot cut them into sockets, because those patterns are sold in Mount Hyjal and Black Temple raids that will become available later in Phase 3.
      This is probably not intended and we do not know at this time if Blizzard plans to address what looks like an oversight on their end.
