I mean, come on. The more involved community memed the referenced client as stock MaNGOS from the get go especially those of us who have worked on private projects in the past, we’ve memed the fact that Blizz uses it to justifiably hide their actions behind, but what’s with the contradictions? First Runeblade and now Arcanums?
There are still some enchantments occupying helpful slots – notably, the Arcanum enchants that will come from Dire Maul and other enchantments that are applied via item rather than via the enchanting profession. This was the case in our 1.12 reference.
We also noticed that our first round of enchantment fixes to prevent enchantments from consuming buff slots missed some of the enchantments that could be flagged to avoid consuming buff slots. The powerful ZG enchants, and “Arcanum” enchants are among these, and we also have a hotfix to keep these from consuming buff slots, which will also be out by next week’s maintenance.
Which is it? Does the reference client count them as a buff or not? Either the “reference client” isn’t credible at all or Blizzard is greatly out of touch with the Classic meta.
Asking for a friend. What’s the deal?
