World of Warcraft: Classic Patch Notes
Version 1.13.7

Chronoboon Displacer

  • Players who complete Chromie’s quests in Andorhal can obtain an ancient artifact of Bronze Dragonflight magic.
  • Use the Chronoboon Displacer to store any world buffs such as Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer, Warchief’s Blessing, and Spirit of Zandalar for later use.
  • Click the Supercharged Chronoboon Displacer to restore your buffs with their previous remaining durations intact.
  • You may not benefit from additional world buffs until you have restored any that you currently have stored in the Supercharged Chronoboon Displacer.

Gameplay Adjustments

  • Beneficial buff priority system
    • Beneficial buffs are now prioritized, similarly to how debuffs have been prioritized.
    • This should help prevent situations where limited-duration or low impact buffs such as Renew, Rejuvenation, or 6-piece set bonuses would “push off” important buffs such as Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer or Flask of the Titans when used on a player that is near the buff limit.
    • Mark of the Champion, Rune of the Dawn, and Seal of the Dawn’s benefits are now marked as “passive” auras and will no longer count towards the player buff cap.
  • Spell batching removed
    • The 400ms “spell batch” window has been reduced to 10ms.
    • This should cause most player abilities to behave in a more responsive way, with damage and healing applied to targets faster. Certain operations in the game now resolve faster, such as purchasing multiple quantities of items from vendors rapidly.
    • Paladin seals will now persist on the Paladin for a very short time after they’re replaced by a different seal, so that “seal twisting” remains possible.

Naxxrammas

  • There is now no area of the raised platform in Heigan the Unclean’s encounter space that is safe from Heigan’s mana burn while Heigan himself is on the platform.
  • Fixed a few areas in the Heigan the Unclean encounter space where Plague Waves could overlap and deal double damage.

Items

  • Made several fixes and improvements to the combat behavior of guardians summoned from items such as the Vanquished Tentacle of C’thun, Defender of the Timbermaw, and Arcanite Dragonling to make them more likely to engage in combat in a wider variety of situations.
  • Shadow Oil and Frost Oil can now proc while the player is on the Global Cooldown.
    • Developers’ note: Shadow Oil is still bound by an internal cooldown however, and this is intended.
  • Resolved an issue that caused the Barov Peasant Caller trinket to only spawn 1 Peasant.
  • Resolved several issues with the Eye of the Dead trinket:
    • Spells such as Chain Heal and Prayer of Healing now only consume a single charge.
    • Heal-over-time spells now properly consume a charge when used.

Bug Fixes

  • The Cryptstalker Headpiece is no longer missing part of the red eye glow effect.
  • Resolved an issue that caused the Brimstone Staff and Rhok’delar, Longbow of Ancient Keepers to not properly animate.
  • City Guards now once again correctly respond to /salute and /wave emotes.

Sigh.

Did you really expect pre-patch when they’re still sorting out a lot of bugs? Would you rather wait for a better pre-patch or get the early-access alpha version of it?

No. You’re a big assumer.

602 days later blizzard has fixed the issues with classic wow, no one can accuse them of sitting idly by and ignoring them.

Can you give vanish ‘batching’ like you did for Paladin seals? Thanks.

Can you explain the priority system for buffs? It is very relevant for tanks and melee to understand what we still might want to cancel auras for.

Can we get more details on this?

  • This should help prevent situations where limited-duration or low impact buffs such as Renew, Rejuvenation, or 6-piece set bonuses would “push off” important buffs such as Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer or Flask of the Titans when used on a player that is near the buff limit.

Does this mean an effect like rejuv won’t even land or will it tick and get removed?

nah. paladin seal twist change is so they dont sink into irrelevance since its a large part of their dps.

the vanish batching thing is so you can exploit and avoid mechanics.

nah. vanish batching is so rogue don’t sink into irrelevance since its a large part of their pvp

Its crazy that so many people thought they were getting pre-patch when they haven’t even done testing for it.

Prepatch is still at least a month away. I’m thinking June 1st/8th at this point.
