WoW Hotfixes - Updated March 20

It would seem so. Last night the client became unstable with my bank alt interacting with the AH. First I could click on the auctioneer repeatedly but the window would not open. Meantime, I could check mail. So I tried to log out but choosing that from the menu resulted in nothing happening. So, I had to terminate the client with extreme prejudice I might add. I logged back in. I tried to list two of the same item and a progress bar I never see (probably because it happens too fast for it to display normally) was frozen midway with I guess one item listed and another not? In any event, same sequence of events basically. I had to terminate the client again. I returned and it hung again in the middle of trying to cancel something else. Each time I clicked to cancel I would get an AH Internal Error message box pop up. That something else was lost in the ether I guess during the crash and as of today it’s nowhere to be found so it is just gone. I’m glad it was not an expensive transmog item or something but instead was something cheap. Just the same, that’s a bit alarming that you can just lose something into thin air like that.

It gets better though sort of. After that last crash when I tried to log in yet again I got a less than helpful error message informing me “That character name already exists.” Several attempts and same thing. It dawned on me that my bank alt was probably still in the world. Just for fun, I logged in an alt nearby and took a little look. Sure enough, there’s my bank alt standing in the AH with the lights on but nobody is home. After a little while I witnessed the vanishing and logged off the alt. Finally, I could log in again. At this point I had had quite enough of this patch already. I never have issues like this thankfully which is why I am inclined to blame the patch. That was my fun playing WoW last night. I gave up.

Today, after even more maintenance my bank alt seems functional, the canceled item as mentioned exists no more and now I find that my bag sorting is broken. I have them set up for trade items, consumables, etc. but when I loot anything it all goes to the first bag now rather than say, some herbs going to the trade items bag. It happens on more than one character. I have too many to bother checking them all.

And this company wants me to buy an expansion? Surely they jest. Sometimes I question my own sanity in putting up with what Activision has done to a game I once loved and still want to but boy they are not making it easy.

Haven’t been able to log in since the hotfix. Already tried full restart and scan and repair.

error report ID:


How did they mess the game up so bad with this patch. So many more buggs. And none of the old ones fixed. Sucks but not to shocked.

Ruby Life Pools. The game wont show the circle for Burn Out cast or the boulder. Even set my setting spell density to essentials. Nothing. Worked fine before the update.

Hoping you could fix the incarn stealth rake bug that disconnects feral Druids, it’s kind of a big deal.

Where is the patch notes for all the Guardian Druid stealth nerfs?

why is Bear in a worse state than before the rework?

did the game need to have a Tank spec in D tier?



I think you dont understand what the term stealth nerfs mean if you want patch notes on it.

a nerf that massive cant be a stealth nerf. and should never be a stealth nerf. as given there is nothing explaining it, i can only assume its a massive bug.

Where you at it can you fix please the bug I mentioned with my first post or at least to say you are aware of it and we can expect a fix soon

It’s been over 2 years and Arcane Mages STILL cannot resummon a Mana Gem without manually deleting it or using up every charge, we should not need a macro and an addon just to make the button function the same as Healthstones (even though it’s ridiculous that what is now essentially a major cooldown is an item with charges).

People have been reporting this bug since you brought Mana Gem back and it still hasn’t been fixed.

Now, only the dragon you’re mounting when customizing doesn’t get their changes persisted. The other are persisted.

When in the area of some elite world quests Druids can’t go stealth. Just get an error can’t use that yet. But able to mount, so it’s not a combat thing.

Hey all! Here are today’s hotfixes.

January 26, 2023


  • Druid
    • Protector of the Pack healing bonus to Regrowth and damage bonus to Moonfire has been increased by 60%.
      • Developers’ note: Previously this talent was gaining extra benefit from various modifiers on the Druid class. With the patch, we changed it to grant the exact bonus listed in the tooltip for clarity and to reduce the swings in value. However, this left the talent feeling a lot weaker, so we’re increasing its spell power substantially to compensate.
    • Guardian
      • Fixed an issue causing Raze to consume extra Tooth and Claw stacks.
  • Warlock
    • Affliction
      • Fixed an issue to where the 4pc set bonus, Cruel Epiphany, was being removed when casting Seed of Corruption, causing it to not benefit.
    • Demonology
      • Fixed an issue where Grimoire: Felguard affected the cooldown of Guillotine, Demonic Strength, and Felstorm.
      • Guillotine, Demonic Strength, and Felstorm now put each ability on cooldown for the appropriate amount of time.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Vault of the Incarnates
    • Sennarth, the Cold Breath
      • Sennarth no longer casts Chilling Blast immediately before entering Phase 2.

Enemies and NPCs

  • Fixed an issue that caused the rare enemy, Bloodbeak the Ravenous, in Nokhudon Hold to have its health scale with attackers.
  • Experience granted by enemies associated with the Cobalt Assembly has been greatly reduced.
    • Developers’ notes: From the start, the Cobalt Assembly was intended to be a max-level feature, and Sundered Flame enemies should not have granted significant amounts of XP. Having a max-level player kill enemies while in a party with lower-level players who stand around and do nothing but receive XP and reputation is not the sort of gameplay we wish to encourage. We’ve adjusted the XP rate, rather than removed it completely, to encourage players to level in more fun, interactive ways, while still leaving this as an option that is no longer the best option.

Items and Rewards

  • The Falling Star Flinger and Falling Star Catcher can now only be used outdoors.
  • Thanks to the assistance of a couple Bronze dragons, the Legion timewalking vendor items now reflect the correct item levels.
  • Removed the holiday requirement for many holiday transmog rewards.
  • Fixed an issue where using Windscar Whetstone caused other on-use trinkets to remain unusable for several additional seconds past the displayed cooldown.

Player versus Player

  • Warmode
    • Fixed an issue that prevented characters from earning “the Horde Slayer” and “the Alliance Slayer” titles.


  • Fixed an issue where crafting EZ-Thro Gravitational Displacer would craft ordinary Gravitational Displacers at certain qualities.


  • The Azure Span
    • In addition to completing tasks for Big Kinook, players can also earn credit for the quests “Community Feast” and “Aiding the Accord: A Feast For All” by throwing any discovered meat into the pot, or by yelling “Yes Chef!” when given a new task.
  • Storm’s Fury
    • Fixed an issue that can cause players to continue to gain stacks of Warmth when at the Temporal Conflux area after the event is over.
    • Fixed an issue with portal capture so that captures occur faster based on number of nearby players.
    • Fixed an issue that caused the lighting to rapidly change when entering or exiting a heat source.
    • “Resisting the Storm” can now be completed when in a raid group.
    • The HP of all Bosses in the Storm’s Fury event has been significantly reduced.
    • The HP of the Winter’s Aegis enemies during the Glakis, Winter’s Wrath boss encounter has been significantly reduced.

How about you fix the sad state bears are in after you nerfed us MORE with your rework?


That is a great way to at least temporarily deal with the lack of tasking given on super busy servers. Excellent.


There’s bugs since beta but this you fix quickly
