45 Bugs in Dragonflight Talent Trees

Recommended Posts


Rextroy deep dives into the new talent trees and shares 45 bugs he discovered in the Dragonflight pre-patch. His latest video focuses on Plate wearers.

Originally, Rextroy planned a video for every class, but that would be too time-consuming, so he went for armor types and the first one focuses on Plate wearers with a total of 45 bugs. 

Short Description of All Bugs

Retribution Paladin:

  1. Sanctified Ground can be permanent, works through talent change
  2. Crusade damage boost works without avenging wrath
  3. Ashes to Ashes weird tooltip

Protection Paladin:

  1. Avenger's Shield procs precognition
  2. Blessed Hammer DMG reduction not working
  3. Inner Light DMG not working
  4. Inspiring Vanguard only gives 2% BASE strength
  5. Bastion of Light consumes Divine Purpose
  6. Sentinel duration is reduced with Aura of Reckoning procs
  7. Gift of the Golden Valkyr doesn't work with Guardian of the Forgotten Queen PvP talent
  8. Bulwark of Righteous fury tooltip range / radius bug
  9. Moment of Glory only counts auto hits

Holy Paladin:

  1. Glimmer of Light is inconsistent
  2. Divine Resonance stops working if you use it offensively, then have no target (screws over mouseover healing)
  3. Avenging Crusader works worse than intended

General Paladin:

  1. Seal of Order gives a bigger boost to Blessing of Dawn than intended
  2. Aspiration of Divinity stacks, not overlaps
  3. Obduracy speed has diminishing returns, probably avoidance too

Blood Death Knight:

  1. Voracious somehow makes the minimum heal of death strike become 37% stronger, not 15% like tooltip says.
  2. Tightened Grasp debuff is 10% damage increase, not 5% like tooltip says.

Unholy Death Knight:

  1. Coil of Devastation doesn't work in Arena
  2. Unholy Aura second point doesn't benefit pets other than main pet
  3. Viscera does less damage than intended
  4. Life and Death does not work on all healing

Frost Death Knight:

  1. Frost fever makes you stuck in combat sometimes

General Death Knight:

  1. Insidious Chill INCREASES the enemy attack speed, not decrease it.
  2. Unholy Bond makes hysteria only give 23 runic power, not 24 (also doesn't work with Razorice on hit damage)

Protection Warrior:

  1. Unnerving Focus doesn't benefit many rage gainers
  2. Brace for impact tooltip is misleading, its not 25% more damage blocked, more like 10%
  3. Enduring Alacrity only gives 3.4% armor instead of 5%
  4. Dance of Death duration increase doesn't work?
  5. Battle-Scarred Veteran has no cooldown tooltip

Fury Warrior:

  1. Reckless Abandon empowered raging blow doesn't work with Battle Trance PvP talent
  2. Recklessness doesn't benefit onslaught
  3. Tenderize doesn't specify slaughtering strikes as requirement

Arms Warrior:

  1. Warlord's Torment recklessness doesn't benefit Bloodsurge
  2. Sweeping Strike doesn't reduce rend damage done to secondary targets Dance of Death stops working when you change sub zone.

Overall Oversights:

  1. Hammer of the Righteous is inferior to Blessed Hammer, but they are a choice node
  2. Touch of Light scaling probably bugged or very bad
  3. Razorice scaling outdated? Based on weapon dmg
  4. Apocalypse DK enchant very undertuned
  5. Death Pact is "useless" at high dampening or healing reduction
  6. Some % based heals doesn't scale with versa (Indomitable) but some does?
  7. Storm of Steel damage reduction but no CD reduction?

The video showcasing all 45 bugs is nearly 21 minutes long.

And that's only for 3 classes. The real beta started when they released the pre-patch on live servers. Blizzard has been doing that for 3 expansions now, we just started the 4th one. We pay to beta test their expansions live.

There are many Bugs resolved and there will be many more Bugs to come its pretty normal that not every bug gets resolved before Live tbh if you can do it better Send you Working application to blizzard it seems they need to recruit you.

Blizz did better before beta was a PR stunt and they half derriered everything out the door.

Many...if not all...of these bugs are not something most players would recognize during beta. Only someone purposely looking for them...like Rextroy...would find them.

Rextroy has the uncanny ability to look between the lines on character building.  He's done it alot on his Paladin during Legion, BFA, and did do some work on some alternative characters during SL.  I'm not angry at the man just impressed that he puts in more time per build, per class, per specialization on his Characters than the average player does on a day or even on a weekly basis.

      The Dragonflight pre-patch event ends later today with the release of Dragonflight. Therefore, don't forget to spend all your earned Primeval Essences before then!
      Primeval Essence, the Dragonflight pre-patch event currency, can be turned in for item level 252 gear at Level 60. When the new expansion hits, the event will be gone, and the vendors will most likely despawn, leaving you with worthless Primeval Essence in your inventory.

      The currency is BoA, and you can send it to alts. Note that the alt must be Level 60 to buy gear. Low-level characters cannot purchase it.
      Check out our Primal Storms guide before the event's gone for good.

      It can be difficult to prioritize your daily and weekly goals whenever a new expansion releases. With the launch of Dragonflight, we've compiled a to-do list that you may want to check out!
      Content Not Available Before Next Week's Maintenance
      Before we dive into it, it is important to point out that the vast majority of content will not be available until next week's reset (November 29) to allow players to focus on leveling at their own pace. The following content will not be available until next week:
      Epic-quality Dragonbane Strongboxes from the Siege of Dragonbane Keep event. Mythic Dungeon Difficulty Weekly quests: "Community Feasts", "Aiding the Accord", "Show Yer Mettle", the Valdrakken profession quests, weekly PvP quests for Honor. Grand Hunt Spoils (Uncommon, Rare, and Epic quality) Dragonflight Launch Day 1: To-Do List
      Complete the Dragonflight Intro Quest leading up to the point where you unlock Dragonriding. It takes about 30 minutes when you start questing in the Waking Shores. Focus on collecting all Dragon Glyphs to unlock Dragonriding Talents that vastly improve your leveling experience. Focus on reaching Level 70 with your main character and completing the Dragonflight Campaign to unlock World Quests, Adventure Mode, and Renown.
      When you unlock all three, focus on:
      Increasing your Renown with the four Major Factions by completing World Quests and opening treasure chests. Running Heroic Dungeons to gear up your main character. Completing World Quests for gear upgrades. Levelling up your Professions. Dragonflight Launch Day 2: To-Do List
      Clear all Mythic +0 dungeons for gear when they become available. Complete the Siege of Dragonbane Keep event. Focus on completing the following weekly quests: "Aiding the Accord", "Show Yer Mettle", Valdrakken Profession quests. Every reset, clear all World Quests on your map to maximize your reputation gains. To-Do List for Alts on Dragonflight Launch Week
      Don't forget to park all your alts in a rested area so they can start earning Rested XP. Log in to the game with your alts. The login after Dragonflight launches triggers Rested XP. Someone on Reddit mentioned you do not need to log in, but we cannot verify that at this time. Abandon all quests using the following macro. /run for i=1,C_QuestLog.GetNumQuestLogEntries() do C_QuestLog.SetSelectedQuest(C_QuestLog.GetInfo(i).questID); C_QuestLog.SetAbandonQuest(); C_QuestLog.AbandonQuest() end; Level up your alts using Adventure Mode. That about sums up the priorities for Dragonflight Launch Week 1. If we forgot about anything, let us know in the comments!

      The Underlight Angler Artifact Fishing Rod from Legion is currently experiencing some issues with Dracthyr characters and the Fishing For Attention buff disappearing when you leave combat. Here's how you can fix both.
      Dracthyr characters currently have issues with the Underlight Angler and upgrading it with Artifact Power. However, @stoppableforceprovides a handy macro that seems to fix the problem.
      The second bug causes the Fishing For Attention buff to fall off whenever you get out of combat. The following macro temporarily solves the issue until Blizzard patches the buff to reapply automatically.

      Here's two more tips/reminders for leveling in the new expansion, as these focus mostly on alts or for those that will be leveling multiple characters simultaneously (or those that have a lot of gold laying around). You could even be leveling from 60 to 66 in 30ish minutes, but would have to expend a lot of crafting resources.
      The first one is an oldie but a goodie, as Slashzor308 pointed out you should be logging in to your alts  after the Dragonflight launch, to get that rested XP bar going again! As you know, when a new expansion drops all characters get the new levels added and ready to be filled with experience, but you have to log in to each character to get that rested XP going.
      How soon you need to do that depends entirely on when you're planning on playing these other characters, as it takes a while for the full rested XP to gather up - you gain 5% of your current level in bonus XP per 8 hours logged off in an inn or capital city, or per 32 hours logged off elsewhere. The cap is at 150% of your current level in bonus XP, and you can read more about the rested XP system here.
      Update: the below method seems to have been nerfed, as the bonus XP for crafting was significantly reduced.
      The other, slightly weirder tip is potentially much more significant, as you could be gaining XP extremely fast while using your professions. Now, this one is from about two weeks ago on the beta, so it's not 100% certain it will work on live, but considering it's a pretty expensive way to level, it just might work. Basically the new profession system brings a lot of XP for crafting, and with enough mats you can speed through the first 6-ish levels very quickly. Here's the full post:
      You can find the new scaled down Dragonflight XP tables here, and you can also check out our leveling guides for each spec for general tips, builds and more.

      We have a very detailed leveling guide to take a look at, as Mr_Roguery took a lot of time to make a document with all the tricks and optimizations to get to level 70 in the most direct way possible. Roguery goes through each hub, main quest, side quest and offers basically a speed walkthrough of the quests, noting where to go and what to do, as well as adding some tips in for good measure.
      Meanwhile, if you're looking for something lighter and more general, you can also check out our own leveling guides, which include builds for each spec, heirlooms,  as well as an overview of the questing,

      A sample from the document.
      This is a very long document, so if you're just looking for ways to level faster, this isn't it - but if you want to plan your leveling ahead of time and know what to expect and what to do, where the Dragonriding glyphs and everything else is, as well as some recommendations for fun and cool quests,  you're in the right place!
