Hotfixes

July 10, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Tabard of Flame item will no longer destroy itself on login. The transmog is available via the appearances tab in collections, and the item itself is available via purchase from Landro Longshot in Booty Bay.
Fixed multiple spells so that they now log properly and can be detected by addon authors and third-party web sites.
Titan Rune Dungeons have been updated to allow for a single player to activate any of the three difficulties.
The Lil’ Deathwing pet now appears as expected in the Collections UI for players who previously added the Cataclysm Collector’s Edition to their account.

July 3, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Fixed an issue preventing the completion of the Bounce achievement.
Cataclysm raid premade group activities are now available in Group Finder.

June 21, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Shaman Fire Elementals will now prefer targets that have their master’s Flameshock active on them, and will switch to those targets over targets without their master’s Flameshock. This check occurs only once every several seconds, so may take a little time to occur.
Temporarily removed the Elemental Shaman (2) Set Bonus on the Burning Crusade Tier 4 set.

Developer’s note: The 2 Piece Elemental Shaman Tier 4 bonus has a bug that existed in original Cataclysm, but was found later on in Warlords of Draenor. If this bonus were to remain in its bugged state, it would cause Elemental Shamans to wear 2 Pieces of The Burning Crusade tier for the entire expansion and we kind of like it when people have to progress their gear. Because the real fix we wish to do requires server restarts, we are removing the 2-set bonus off of the set for the weekend, and then placing it back after server restarts in its fixed state.

June 18, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Faster than the Speed of Light and Vigorous VanCleef Vindicator are now granted properly after completing the achievement.
Archaeology Survey equipment should now appropriately despawn.

June 13, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Race change, faction change, and paid server transfer cooldowns reduced to 3 days (was 30 days).
Magmaw will no longer fall backwards during Impale, preventing players from doing damage.
Fixed an issue where the Horde team was getting less resource points per tick with three locations captured in the Eye of the Storm, than the Alliance team would in the same situation.
Improved combat logging of certain effects.
Death Knight

Death Coil will no longer critically heal for 300% of the normal value, instead of the intended 200%.

Rogue

Vendetta no longer persists on the target when the Rogue specs out of the talent.

June 12, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Druid

Balance

Developer’s note: We noticed that Balance druid gameplay was seeing a trend towards sitting in Solar and trying not to leave it, especially in Multi-DoT situations. Not engaging with a decent chunk of your core rotation to stay in Solar Eclipse is not a playstyle that we nor the original developers had intended, so we released a change last week that was aimed at preventing mastery snapshotting pre-pull by resetting Eclipse when engaging a boss.
We understand this could be a damage reduction in many scenarios and to address this, Insect Swarm now deals Spellstorm (Arcane/Nature) damage so it can now benefit from Lunar Eclipse. This means that when you end up in Lunar Eclipse, you will still be buffing your two core DoTs. We estimate this change to be about a 15% damage increase to Insect Swarm, which is typically a Balance Druid’s second most damaging ability on non-single target encounters. There may still be situations where staying in Solar Eclipse is ideal, and that’s totally fine, we just don’t think it’s healthy for that to be every situation and on every pull.
Starting a boss encounter resets Eclipse energy to 0.
Insect Swarm is now considered both an Arcane and a Nature spell, causing it to benefit from both Eclipses. The tooltip will be updated in a future update.

June 11, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Valor Points will now behave like Conquest and the current weekly cap will be replaced with a rolling seasonal cap.

Developer’s note: If you’ve missed any Valor Points in previous weeks since Cataclysm Classic launched, you’ll now be able to catch up from those weeks.

There is no longer a cap to the number of times you may earn Valor Points from Random Dungeon Finder each week, up to your normal Valor Points cap.
The Hood of Malefic wing affect should work once again.
Fixed an issue where the Wrack spell during the Sinestra fight could cause your game to freeze and crash.
Fixed an issue that prevented the Staff of Disintegration from working to help you in the Tempest Keep Kael’Thas encounter.
Rotten to the Core is now granted properly after completing the achievement.
Darkmoon Faire

Starting this weekend, Darkmoon Faire will become available every two weeks, instead of once a month.

Hunter

Scatter Shot will now correctly break if the target takes damage and it is absorbed.

Mage

Fixed an issue with Living Bomb behaving incorrectly when refreshed on multiple targets.
Pyromaniac now counts Ignite as a damage over time effect.

Paladin

Hand of Sacrifice will now correctly break Scatter Shot and Dragon’s Breath when damage is transferred to the crowd-controlled Paladin.

Priest

June 6, 2024

June 5, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Fixed a bug in Conclave of Wind where a player dying could lead to Nezir dropping no loot.
Druid

Clearcasting will no longer be consumed by Nourish.

Developers’ notes: This mirrors a change that was originally made in patch 4.0.3a. Nourish is a low cost heal and is intended to be a filler spell. It simply doesn’t feel good to be casting Nourish and have Clearcasting go off, and then spend it on the incoming Nourish.

Paladin

Fixed an issue where Paladins could start Arena matches with Inquisition or more than 0 Holy Power.

June 3, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Honor rewards from completing a random battleground or a holiday battleground have been increased by 100%.
Fixed an issue with Admiral Ripsnarl’s visual effect.
Fixed a bug preventing the completion of the achievement Acrocalypse Now.
Priest

Atonement healing will now de-prioritize pets, and will only heal them if their health is very low compared to available player targets. It will treat them as if their health percentage is 50% higher when evaluating targets.
Fixed an issue with Shadowy Apparitions that prevented them from being summoned under certain circumstances.

Shaman

Fixed a problem with Precision where it was granting an unintended additional 1/2/3% chance to hit.

May 30, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

When Nitro Boosts malfunction in a raid encounter, they will now also grant increased movement speed as well as damage their user.
The Greater Inscription shoulder enchants available at exalted with Therazane are now Bind-to-Account.
Death Knight

Fixed an issue where Death Knights sometimes did not gain the benefit of Improved Blood Presence.

Priest

Fixed an issue where the spell casting haste from Time Warp and Primal Rage was able to stack with Power Infusion’s spell casting haste, which was not intended.

Rogue

Blind can no longer trigger poisons applied to the Rogue’s ranged weapon.

Warlock

Fixed an issue where some Warlocks retained the benefit of the Nemesis talent from Wratch of the Lich King Classic, which no longer exists in Cataclysm Classic.

May 29, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Fixed an issue that could cause disconnects while aiming and shooting the Siege Tank during the “Battlezone” quest in Uldum.

May 28, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Fixed an issue that was causing Glubtok to summon adds in Normal Deadmines.
Fixed an issue with many guild profession achievements not tracking as expected.
The Twin Peaks battleground is temporarily unavailable while some issues are addressed.
Death Knight

Fixed an issue with Desecration not being removed by Bladestorm.

Druid

Leader of the Pack’s tooltip now correctly states that the Druid’s melee critical strikes in Cat and Bear for cause them to heal 4% of their total health (incorrectly showed 5%).

Hunter

Primate Hunter pets now understand that they can’t move while using their Bad Manner ability and will successfully cast the spell without interrupting themselves.
Furious Howl will no longer stack with other % Crit chance increases such as Leader of the Pack and Rampage.

May 23, 2024

Fixed a bug with achievement completion tracking for the meta-achievement Classic Dungeonmaster.
Death Knight Brutal Gladiator gear on the Outland Armor Quartermasters in Stormwind and Orgrimmar has been discounted so that their prices match those of other classes.
Mor’norokk the Hateful can no longer be erroneously killed by players on the quest “On Second Thought, Take One Prisoner”.
Fixed an issue that was removing the Dormus’ Rage aura from players who were teleported to Feralas.

May 22, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Fixed a bug preventing Diabolical Plans from dropping in Ashenvale for Horde players wanting to do “Never Again”.
Cataclysm Honor Vendors should now be available in Stormwind and Orgrimmar to purchase ilvl 352 Blue PvP Gear for Honor Points.

Conquest and Elite Conquest vendors will not sell anything until Arena Season 9 begins with next week’s regional resets.

Fixed a bug with the Thirty Tabards
Fixed a bug preventing Engineers and Alchemists from making discoveries while crafting.
Crafted “Vicious” gear that was unintentionally created at item level 377 has been adjusted to item level 339.
In “Stonefather’s Boon”, the Stonefather’s Boon buff duration has been reduced to 10 seconds (was 3 minutes).
Fixed some quest issues. Erunak Stonespeaker should now still be visible to players who have advanced further in the quest line at the original location to turn in “Call of Duty”. “All or Nothing”, “Blood and Thunder”, and “Defending the Rift” should no longer fail to complete if you are sitting or mounted.

May 21, 2024

Fixed a bug preventing pets from displaying in the Stable as intended.

Mage

When Combustion gains damage from Ignite, that Ignite damage will not get increased a second time from Fire Mage Mastery Flashburn. It was already increased once by Flashburn when first applied.

May 16, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Hunter

Mage

Fixed an issue where dispelled Ignite effects were increasing the damage done by future Ignites. Dispels from the Glyph of Polymorph and duels ending will also now clear the damage done.

Rogue

Fixed an issue with Deadly Momentum that caused its increased critical chance to be consumed by auto attacks that did not benefit from that increased chance. This is a true-to-reference 14-year-old bug, but was clearly unintended, so we fixed it.

Shaman

Fixed an issue with Healing Stream Totem where it was not benefitting from the Shaman Restoration Mastery ability Deep Healing.

Cataclysm Classic

Fixed a bug in Conclave of Wind where a player dying could lead to Nezir dropping no loot.
Druid

Clearcasting will no longer be consumed by Nourish.

Developers’ notes: This mirrors a change that was originally made in patch 4.0.3a. Nourish is a low cost heal and is intended to be a filler spell. It simply doesn’t feel good to be casting Nourish and have Clearcasting go off, and then spend it on the incoming Nourish.

Paladin

Fixed an issue where Paladins could start Arena matches with Inquisition or more than 0 Holy Power.

Druid

Balance

Developer’s note: We noticed that Balance druid gameplay was seeing a trend towards sitting in Solar and trying not to leave it, especially in Multi-DoT situations. Not engaging with a decent chunk of your core rotation to stay in Solar Eclipse is not a playstyle that we nor the original developers had intended, so we released a change last week that was aimed at preventing mastery snapshotting pre-pull by resetting Eclipse when engaging a boss.
We understand this could be a damage reduction in many scenarios and to address this, Insect Swarm now deals Spellstorm (Arcane/Nature) damage so it can now benefit from Lunar Eclipse. This means that when you end up in Lunar Eclipse, you will still be buffing your two core DoTs. We estimate this change to be about a 15% damage increase to Insect Swarm, which is typically a Balance Druid’s second most damaging ability on non-single target encounters. There may still be situations where staying in Solar Eclipse is ideal, and that’s totally fine, we just don’t think it’s healthy for that to be every situation and on every pull.
Starting a boss encounter resets Eclipse energy to 0.
Insect Swarm is now considered both an Arcane and a Nature spell, causing it to benefit from both Eclipses. The tooltip will be updated in a future update.

Shaman Fire Elementals will now prefer targets that have their master’s Flameshock active on them, and will switch to those targets over targets without their master’s Flameshock. This check occurs only once every several seconds, so may take a little time to occur.
Temporarily removed the Elemental Shaman (2) Set Bonus on the Burning Crusade Tier 4 set.

Developer’s note: The 2 Piece Elemental Shaman Tier 4 bonus has a bug that existed in original Cataclysm, but was found later on in Warlords of Draenor. If this bonus were to remain in its bugged state, it would cause Elemental Shamans to wear 2 Pieces of The Burning Crusade tier for the entire expansion and we kind of like it when people have to progress their gear. Because the real fix we wish to do requires server restarts, we are removing the 2-set bonus off of the set for the weekend, and then placing it back after server restarts in its fixed state.
