  • Some older items may fail to cast their effects.
  • Transmogrfying items to look like the Fangs of the Father (Golad, Twilight of Aspects and Tiriosh, Nightmare of Ages) is not user-friendly.

Returning Player’s Guide

As with any update it is important to make sure that if you use addons that they have been updated. It may be a good idea to reset your UI to default to make sure that the old files aren’t causing any issues.

Cousin and I were doing the “Into the Darkness” quest and the 2nd part bugged out on him after we exited our first horrific vision. He has no eye to interact with to enable the scenario inside the heart of azeroth. It only is allowing him to sign up for another horrific vision. He tried disbanding the quest and starting over but is out 10k of the coalescing visions now. Heis character is Miz on the server Mal’ganis.


+1 on this, same issue for me. had to buy a vessel for 10k and run it again to get credit


Female worgen eyes are still missing their eye lighting effect, even when choosing a face variant that contains “glowing” yellow eyes.

And the issue of the Auction House not showing cloak (except for cloth users), off-hand, or shield items that are new looks when the option is clicked? Is that known?

In the Auction house when you have “uncollected only” checked it still shows every battle pet that is both collected and not collected.


Also quest wise there is one quest currently bugged it only works if you drop the quest and pick it up again. During the Allied quest line for unlocking mechagnomes the quest titled “A strong heart” it bugs out after killing the mob, meaning you can’t get the heart from Kelsey so you have to drop it and pick it up again.

Submitted a ticket, but since the patch the game is unplayable for me. IF I succesfully log in, the latency is between 4k-11k before I get disconnected with an error of wow51900319. I’ve gone through every single troubleshooting step, uninstalled/reinstalled the game, I run no addons, my firewall is properly set, internet is functioning for every other game or application. Warcraft was working just fine the day prior to 8.3


Could you add the fact that ZERO Macbook Pros work with this patch so far? Everyone is getting a major FPS loss randomly, then it even locks up the computer to the point where a restart is required. This is even with all addons off and graphics set to their lowest setting, which i’ve NEVER had to do until 8.3. Please add this to the “known issues”. for reference: Random game freezing 8.3


+1 here. Having similar issues.


I’m having the exact same issue with my MacBook Pro freezing and crashing and it’s making the game practically unplayable.


AH favorite list does not persist through logout. Have to re-favorite items every time I log in. Doesn’t seen intentional, and if it is not a useful feature


I’ve seen others post in a couple other threads, but thought it should be here too… you can’t put the flexweave underlay on your legendary cloak.

Kelsey Steelspark isn’t visible in Boralus. She is required for the quest “Urgent Care”. Issue seems to be linked to a certain player base who haven’t fully completed Mechagon on an Alliance character but have completed it on Horde.

Prince Erazim is missing from Rustbolt, can’t claim paragon chests, anyone else having this issue?


Cloaks still dropping in 8.3. I got one from the PvP weekly chest.

Was trying to push into the drag in a horrific vision and my game bugged and said I was in combat after I killed the first big boss guy. Still had three orbs but could not use them so I died standing perfectly still for 15 seconds. wasted 10000 coalescing visions and now have to wait a full week to finish the remnants of a shattered world quest. Great time, really want to keep playing the game now.
