Known Issues – Dragonflight version 10.0.2 -- Updated November 15

The second Dragonflight Pre-expansion patch is now live. Please read on for a list of known issues that we’re working on, and further information about this update.

Updated November 15


  • Swapping between Choice Nodes on the Talent tree may not properly swap the abilities on player’s action bars.
  • (Covenants) The Deepening Bond effect earned through Renown incorrectly states that it increases players’ stamina. These effects have been adjusted to increase movement speed in patch 10.0.2 and their tooltip will be fixed in the near future.
  • Classes with Starter Builds updated in patch 10.0.2 may experience issues with Starter Builds. Players in Starter Build mode when the patch launches will still have the previous Starter Build. If you are having issues with Starter Build, leave Starter Build by changing a talent or selecting a different loadout, and then reselect Starter Build to get the updated build. At a future date, all players with outdated Starter Builds will be removed from Starter Build mode on login. You can then reselect Starter Build to get the updated build.
