Hotfixes

SEPTEMBER 27, 2022
Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • The maximum amount of in-game currency that can be transferred to another realm is now 500g for player-characters at levels 10-30, 2,500g at levels 31-50, and 25,000g at level 51 or higher.
  • Players who enter a battleground while mounted on a flying mount or while shapeshifted into Flight Form will now return to their flying mount or shapeshift form upon exiting the battleground.
  • Fixed an issue where skill level requirements were not enforced when casting the Skinning spell from your spell book.
  • Fixed an issue causing Wartook Iceborn to sometimes disappear during the quest “Across Transborea.”
  • Fixed an issue in “The Battle for Undercity” where King Varian Wrynn was attacking an NPC that should not be part of the event.
  • Fixed an issue with the quest “Mission: Plague This!” where Greer Orehammer would not offer another flight to players who already had Orehammer’s Precious Bombs in their inventory.
  • Fixed an issue with “The Last Rites” quest where a player could cause Thassarian to become stuck under certain conditions.
  • Brewfest
    • The Dark Iron Brewer in Blackrock Depths will now correctly drop his Mug of Dire Brew when sufficiently drunk. Bottoms up!
  • Karazhan
    • Nightbane no longer requires completion of the associated questline and can now be summoned by any player using the Blackened Urn object on the balcony.
  • Utgarde Pinnacle
    • Grauf should no longer regenerate to full health when flying off if it is not killed within a single pass during the Skadi the Ruthless encounter.

SEPTEMBER 23, 2022
Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Raids will now count towards the 5 instance-per-hour limit.
    • Developers’ notes: The hourly instance limit prevents players from entering instances that they’ve entered at least once already within the last hour. With this change, farming a dungeon should not prevent you from entering a raid instance, so long as you don’t attempt to reset and re-enter that raid instance multiple times.

SEPTEMBER 22, 2022

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • Brewfest’s Coren Direbrew dungeon is now available in the Group Finder for players over level 68.

  • Fixed an issue with Warrior’s Warbringer talent which prevented Intervene from breaking root effects.
  • Call to Arms Battlegrounds now reward the proper bonus Honor.
  • Quests that did not display completion text when being watched have been fixed and should display the text on what to do next under the objective tracker.

Wrath of the Lich King Classic

  • During the quest “City of Light,” Khadgar’s Servant will now continue giving its tour even if the player is not nearby.
  • Zombies are no longer unstoppable by benefitting from Preparation at the start of battlegrounds. Alterac Valley weekend is saved!
  • Gathering nodes will now have a sparkling visual effect when being tracked.
  • Fixed an issue where Group Finder activity level ranges were not correct. They should now more closely match the levels of the Meeting Stones for those dungeons.
  • Players can now list and browse the Group Finder for dungeons that are below their level.
  • Latency and other performance information is now visible in the tooltip of the Game Menu button.

  • Player versus Player

SEPTEMBER 1, 2022

Yes, you are in right!!

Yesterday, thousands of people had problems getting into the game, the game crashed, people complained on the forum. You game admins, you must know that this game is NOT free!!! We pay you for your poor service, for your bad servers, and if you don’t know how to write a single letter on the forum, or to apologize, you’re not OK!

Remove the dang-blasted carets from the minimap. They’ve been there since 1.14 and they belong to the Legion pre-patch!

Theyre lovely , arent they <3 hahahaha

What the actual fck blizz. My ghoul is permanent, yet every damn time I fly off the ground the ghoul dissapears and I have to summon him with cd/dust again. Its rly annoying to have such a trivial think fcked up. What the fck are we paying for? Game is 14 years old ffs. Get your sht together. I bet I could find private servers less buggy for no monthly fee. I read about it on US forum and you said it will be hotfixed 3 days ago! Ur not even trying ffs!

Most of these don’t seem like they would be hard to find or hidden bugs. Did you guys not do a beta?

I’ve collected some more work for you guys: (Press F5 if it shows 404)

Hello, please is there any chance that the dungeon finder will return to the game, I don’t understand that blizzard removed such an important part of the game, the party finder is useless crap. Why doesn’t blizzard listen to the fans anymore and is hurting a great game. Thanks

One more for your list.
To be removed: Carets still in Minimap (added in Legion pre-patch)

And they said Quest tracker will only come later - so not a bug.

Songflower is not working currently.

When you will fix “Survival of the Fittest” talent from feral Druid? Still instead of giving 33% Armor we get 66 Armor…thats simply a joke…

Wsg weekend yeah right where is the bonus honor than ? when queuing for it it still says 1 honor.

and why did u remove the marks of honor from the bgs ? its not like its a massive advantage for new players if they get them? clarify this please.

than again Auction house is still freaking slow,

looting or herbs or mines, it so slow that the new node spawns after u finish looting.

Queues are just bs, had a 2.5 hour queue about 3 nights in a row like really ?
u could of known 1000s of poeple wanted to try out LK again as this was the games Xpac.

This feels like u put ur interns on this project?

Sort you stuff out and quick.
