Burning Crusade Classic Hotfixes – Updated November 10

Hotfixes

NOVEMBER 10, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • Fixed an issue where players wouldn’t get taken to the Twin Spire Ruins graveyard in Zangarmarsh if they had taken control of it before entering a Coilfang Reservoir dungeon.

NOVEMBER 9, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • The Botanica, The Mechanar, and Arcatraz dungeons now require Expert Riding skill to enter.
  • Fixed an issue where multiple spectators could not join the queue for a Spectator Match War Game.
  • Fixed an issue where Poison Cleansing Totems from Horde Shaman would dispel 2 stacks of poison instantly when used, instead of the intended 1 stack.
  • Fixed an issue where a player that was attacked by a Rogue that immediately vanished after would sometimes drop out of combat much quicker than intended.

NOVEMBER 3, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • You can now report players from the /who menu.
  • Fixed an issue where an extra confirmation pop-up would appear when entering a War Game.
  • Fixed an issue where keybinds were not correctly loading for the War Game Commentator User Interface.

NOVEMBER 2, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • Fixed an issue where players who accepted a battle resurrection into a raid boss encounter after releasing their spirit could be teleported to their Hearthstone location.

NOVEMBER 1, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • Fixed an issue with the quest “Helboar, the Other White Meat” that caused an extra Tainted Helboar Meat to be consumed.

OCTOBER 12, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • All “pre-made” groups may now queue for Battlegrounds. Grouped players will primarily face opponents who queued in groups of similar sizes.
    • Developers’ note: With this change, the matchmaker will now match raid groups of 6 or more players against at least one group of 6 or more players. If the total number of players in your raid is smaller than the maximum size of the Battleground, the matchmaker will automatically fill your side with other groups or individuals. If there are no large pre-mades in the queue, party groups of 5 or fewer players will be placed against other parties of 5 or fewer players. Queuing alone or in small parties will not guarantee an opposing team with no large pre-mades.

OCTOBER 4, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • Brewfest is again up and running on all realms, and will end at 23:59 server time tomorrow, October 5.
    • Developers’ note: We initially set up Brewfest 2021 in Burning Crusade Classic to run for the same duration as it ran in 2007 in original Burning Crusade, but we’ve decided to bring it back for another day.
  • Hunter
    • Feeding pets Sporeling Snack and Kibler’s Bits no longer generates threat.

SEPTEMBER 28, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • Fixed an issue where Lady Vashj would sometimes evade when backing up into the shield generators around her encounter area.

SEPTEMBER 27, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • [With realm restarts] Spell Haste now lowers the global cooldown (GCD) to a minimum of 1.0 second (was 0.75 seconds).
    • Developers’ note: This hotfix is intended to bring the behavior of the GCD in line with version 2.4.0 of Burning Crusade, which the gameplay conditions of Burning Crusade Classic 2.5.2 are based on. Due to a bug in the original 2.4.0 code, players with high Spell Haste in original Burning Crusade were sometimes able to cast certain spells less than second apart, and they would also sometimes be delayed to over a second, based on how their actions were lining up with the server’s tick rate. We’ve decided that the fairest and most accurate thing we could do is to replicate the intent of the original game and enforce that Spell Haste cannot reduce the GCD below 1.0 second.

SEPTEMBER 23, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • Items that are disenchanted should now be available on the Item Restoration support page to self-restore, as long as the materials gained are still present.
  • Creatures and NPCs
    • Some missing NPCs around the world are now visible again.
  • Dungeons and Raids
    • Fixed an issue where enemies, such as Kael’thas Sunstrider and Lady Vashj, could wipe threat from their primary target after mind controlling players.
  • Quests
    • Fixed an issue preventing Druids in Flight Form from using Skyguard Bombs during the “Bombing Run” quest and using Skyguard Blasting Charges during the “Fires Over Skettis” quest.

SEPTEMBER 21, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • The Shartuul’s teleporter event has been enabled once again.
  • Fixed an issue where some bosses in Serpentshrine Cavern and Tempest Keep were missing certain items from their loot table.
  • Fixed an issue where Horde characters weren’t automatically barking when riding a ram through Orgrimmar for the Brewfest quests “Bark for T’chali’s Voodoo Brewery!” and “Bark for Drohn’s Distillery.”
  • Fixed an issue during “Terokk’s Downfall” that prevented Skyguard Ace from casting Skyguard Flare.
  • Fixed an issue preventing some players from using Skyguard Bombs during the “Bombing Run” quest.

SEPTEMBER 16, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • Fixed an issue that prevented the pop-up notice that is displayed when a Battlefield is ready from hiding when you leave the queue.
  • Fixed a sound issue when riding ram, horse, talbuk and deathcharger mounts.

SEPTEMBER 15, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • The Shartuul’s Transporter event has been temporarily disabled, due to a bug.
    • Developers’ note: We expect to have it fixed in a few days, and we’ll post an update here when we do.

AUGUST 6, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • The Midsummer Fire Festival has been configured to run for 16 days, in order to give players a little extra time to complete its many quests. This means that Burning Blossoms, which expire after being held for 14 days, may disappear if they were collected in the first two days of the event and then never spent.

AUGUST 4, 2021

Burning Crusade Classic

  • Midsummer Fire Festival
    • “A Thief’s Reward” is now available after returning the flames of all major enemy city’s bonfires.

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

Burning Crusade Classic

  • The Hellfire Peninsula buffs Nazgrel’s Fervor and Trollbane’s Command are no longer removed upon entering a Hellfire Citadel dungeon.

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

  • Fixed an issue where bonuses to a specific class spell – such as the 2-piece Incanter’s Regalia set bonus – would affect a different spell when applied to another class.
  • Mages spellstealing Shadow Trance from a Warlock no longer makes Fireball instant cast, true to reference behavior.

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.
  • Karazhan

Honor still needs to be tuned higher. 7 Hours of pvp today and I gained 7k honor. Just let us have fun for once. Servers were alive with people queing BG’s, it was a great atmosphere.

Inb4 someone says “those are the correct values, be happy with what you get” - We get 10 days of prepatch, and a buggy one at that. If the gear is “irrelevant” in two weeks then you shouldn’t have an issue with people getting it.

Stalkers ally is working for some hunters and not others where the 50ap tier 3 4 piece bonus is not being applied to the pet. Also protection paladin reckoning is disabling melee swing when it procs and the paladin just stand there while being beaten on.

same for me

I would be nice to be able to turn in marks for honor. Currently we are earing marks at a much faster rate than honor given the cost of the items. Being able to turn in marks for honor would help with that. And fixing the Call to arms quest would be nice.

Revert the honor you idiots.
2006-2007 prepatch honor was NOT this hard to get. Marks were the bottleneck.

There is obviously something deceptive going on.

Except those werent the correct values. It was easy to get honor in 2006 prepatch, everybody knows that. Marks were the issue.
