Burning Crusade Classic Hotfixes – Updated 26 July

Hotfixes

JULY 26, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • Player versus Player
    • [With weekly maintenance in each region] The formula for Arena Points has been adjusted to increase Arena Points awarded each week. This will equate to approximately 100 additional points per week for most 5v5 teams, about 88 additional points for most 3v3 teams, and about 76 more points for 2v2 teams. Teams near 1500 rating will get more, and the curve still tapers to the same maximum as before.
      • Developers’ notes: In original Burning Crusade in 2007, players could expect to receive 450-500 Arena Points per week by playing at least 10 matches and winning more than 50% of the time. At that time, a team who lost most of their games could expect to get about 300 points per week. Starting from a team rating of 0 has created a points-per-win curve that has been significantly below that, so we’re raising the point floor to compensate for the additional time needed to raise your rating. With this change, all 5v5 teams over 100 rating should get at least 300 points per week.

JULY 15, 2021

JULY 1, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • You must be level 65 or higher to enter The Shattered Halls or The Steamvault.

JUNE 28, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • [With regional restarts] Feral Druid Energy Regeneration now increments on a fixed 2 second loop, independent of other factors such as changes to mana or health regeneration rates, or shifting between forms.
    • Developers’ note: With careful timing, Cat Druids should be able to receive their full 20 Energy regeneration tick immediately after shifting. For more information, see our full post about this change here.
  • [With regional restarts] Team ratings should now more closely follow personal rating changes on Arena teams.

JUNE 23, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • Warlocks are no longer revealed on the arena frames if they sacrifice a demon before the gates have opened.
  • Magtheridon’s Lair
    • Fixed animation issues with Blast Nova and Quake.
    • Blast Nova now always has a raid warning when cast.
    • Blast Nova will no longer be immediately recasted if he was interrupted before he began channeling.
      • Developers’ note: Magtheridon’s Blast Nova was set up in original Burning Crusade in a way that it was possible for players to see a raid warning for an attack that would never come, or for Mag to use an ability without warning. These misbehaviors were recreated in Burning Crusade Classic as we matched the boss configuration with our pre-nerf reference. With the fixes above, we’ve made it so that Blast Nova is used consistently after a raid warning, and no longer fails to be put on cooldown if interrupted during its cast.

Last time i looked for it it wasnt there - and i had the necessary riding skill to unlock the quest.

Maybe fix the size of Shade of Aran’s blizzard, since it shouldn’t be the size of 55% of the room and shouldn’t last as long as it currently does. That’s not pre-nerf, that’s just broken. I have seen pre-nerf Shade and this isn’t it.

BUG : In TBC the mage clear casting is not working at it originally did. When used with arcane missiles it used to be on each missile hit and not just the cast of the spell. So as the tooltip states on hit and arcane missiles hits 5 times per cast so there was 5 chances for it to prock on with one cast

Eye of the Storm 500 point Bonus Honor tick for Horde and Alliance are different.
Horde gains 21. Alliance gains 2.
On top of that - i don’t know if it’s a bug or a fix - the flag captures don’t give any honor at all for ~1-2 hours now.

So when is the fix for this coming? For someone making gold through alchemy consumables where the scale of purchases is massive and competition is fierce, constantly requiring to monitor, cancel, and repost hundreds of auctions this is extremely frustrating having “Internal Auction Error” flashing every few seconds, having UI show it performed action properly, but knowing that it most likely didn’t go through, having to reload every auction page for the item every time to cancel/post it properly again, multiple times, and having to go to the mailbox and back to make sure that you’ve bought the correct amount of materials for crafting.

This is just so, so much worse than any kind of auction lag that may have been occurring in the past.
