Hotfixes

May 16, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Hunter

The Ancient Hysteria effect from Hunter Corehound pets will now clear properly after encounters end.

May 15, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Darkmoon Faire Island is now set to open on May 26 through June 1.
The Stratholme Main Gate entrance should now place you in the correct location when queued through Random Dungeon Finder.
Exhaustion, Sated, and Temporal Displacement will now be cleared from pets when they are cleared from their masters.
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.

Warlock

Fixed a problem with the values shown in the Warlock Molten Core talent. It will now correctly state that it reduces cast time by 10/20/30% at 1/2/3 talent points.

Warrior

Deep Wounds damage will now be reduced by effects that reduce damage taken by a percentage.

May 14, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Fixed missing text in guildmaster’s Rank Permissions panel so that it is clear that the checkbox controls whether the guild rank is considered an officer rank.
Fixed an issue that would cause Cockroach Cabins to be uninteractable, preventing the daily “Roach Coach” quest from being completed.
Fixed an issue that prevented players from interacting with the objects required to complete the “Would You Like Some Flies With That?” daily quest.
Mage

Fixed a problem with Focus Magic being useable while not talented into it.
Living Bomb critical strikes will no longer trigger Ignite. It did not trigger Ignite in original Cataclysm, as even its final detonation was considered periodic damage.

Shaman

Flametongue Totem will no longer stack with other Spell power increasing effects.

Warlock

Drain Life will no longer turn its target permanently green until they log out.

May 10, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Blood Queen Lana’thel should now Vampiric Bite more consistently.
Kadrak now allows players to complete “To the Rescue!” even when Brutusk is busy.
Fixing an issue where sacks of oatmeal were not interactable during the “Keepin’ the Haggis Flowin’” quest.
Fixed an issue that would prevent players from completing the “Devastation” quest. “Devastation” can now be reacquired by walking near the foliage that begins the quest in the Badlands.
Fixed an issue that would prevent players from interacting with Sewer Caps on the “Fungus Among Us” quest.
The Troll racial ability Berserking will now reset when an encounter ends.
Paladin

Selfless Healer now correctly increases Word of Glory healing when Word of Glory is cast on others.

Priest

Fixed some issues with Prayer of Mending. Twin Disciplines now properly increases Prayer of Mending healing by the amount stated in the tooltip. Grace now works properly on healing from Prayer of Mending. Glyph of Prayer of Mending now increases healing from the first bounce of Prayer of Mending by 100%.

Shaman

Flametongue Totem will no longer stack with other Spell power increasing effects.

Warlock

Incubus pets can now be renamed by Warlock Demon trainers, just like other demon pets.

May 8, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Professor Thaddeus Paleo has returned to Stormwind and Orgrimmar to continue collecting Darkmoon decks and he will continue to do so until the opening of Darkmoon Faire Island.

Spiked Gauntlets of Anvilrage
Scepter of Bronzebeard
The Innkeeper’s Daughter

Night Elf

Wisp Amulet

Silver Scroll Case

May 7, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Legendary appearances may now be added to your Transmogrification collection. In anticipation of community response to this change, we have also added a pitchfork.
Fixed an issue that would cause the Monstrous Clams in the quest “Clammy Hands” to be non-interactive.
Fixed an issue that prevented Naralex and his discipline from correctly spawning in the Southern Barrens.
Druid Thrash now benefits from and consumes the Clearcasting effect from Omen of Clarity.
Fixed an issue where Blessing of Kings and Mark of the Wild were incorrectly stacking their stat increases.
Fixed an issue where level 80 boosted characters were not properly learning their class and spec’s Mastery abilities.
Prayer of Mending now scales by the intended amount from spell power.
Conflagrate will no longer consume lower-rank Immolates belonging to other Warlocks.
Player versus Player

Fixed a bug causing Resilience to do much less mitigation than intended.
Fixed an issue where crowd control effects were breaking at a lower damage threshold than intended.

May 6, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Account wide achievements that reward titles now grant them at an account level.
Fixed an issue that prevented players from receiving daily Random Battleground rewards.
Smoke Bomb will now properly cancel Stealth, Prowl, and Shadowmeld from enemy players.
Fixed an issue that would prevent Warden Stillwater from spawning during the “Lawn of the Dead” quest.
Fixed an issue where Death Knights in Blood Presence could be incorrectly, critically hit by all melee attacks.
Reduced the cost of all honor and arena gear from Wrath of the Lich King, to better match honor gain while at level 80 compared to level 85.
Holidays

Made some improvements to the Children’s Week Quests “The Banshee Queen”, “Malfurion Has Returned!”, and “The Fallen Chieftain” to more consistently grant quest credit.

Warlock

The Warlock Demon Soul ability will now work with the Incubus pet.
Fixed an issue where Warlock Demonology pets were not properly updating from Mastery.
Fixed an issue with the incorrect tooltip on Demonic Pact. It should correctly read that it grants the Warlock 2% increased personal spell damage.

May 3, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Fixed a bug causing Hunters to do trap dropping animations twice.
Account wide pet collection achievements now correctly grant rewards.
Fixed an issue preventing Bloodlust and Heroism from working as intended.
Mounting the Violet Proto Drake now grants Master Riding to players who are at least level 80 and have Artisan Riding trained.
Heal-over-time and damage-over-time ticks should now behave as intended in Cataclysm when refreshed.

Developers’ notes: Previously, refreshing a DoT just before it finished its last tick could cause it to miss out on a tick. That was the correct behavior in Wrath of the Lich King, but not Cataclysm.

Holidays

The Children’s Week holiday is now extended for one additional week.
“Ridin’ The Rocketway” can now be completed.
Craggle Wobbletop and Blax Bottlerocket now sell Yellow and Green Balloons for Children’s Week.

Cataclysm Classic

If a Paladin misplaces the Symbol of Faith during the quest “Materials of Significance”, they may now buy a replacement from the Lost and Found vendor in Booty Bay.
Fixed the Children’s Week quest “Cruisin’ the Chasm” so that it can now be completed.
Boosted Paladins should now have Collective Book of Healing or Secondhand Book of Healing as expected.
Fixed an issue that prevented Worgen from being eligible for some daily quests.
Mage

Ignite damage will no longer be counted double toward Combustion.
Refreshed Ignite that now has 3 ticks over 6 seconds will do the same amount of damage on each tick.
Ignite spread by Impact and Fire Blast will no longer have a missing 2nd or 3rd tick that adds damage to future Ignites.

May 1, 2024
Cataclysm Classic

Archaeology digsites that appear in Uldum, Twilight Highlands, and Hyjal once players hit 450 Archaeology should no longer appear until the zones are accessible on official Expansion Launch.
Paladin

Fixed an issue with Seals of Command where Seal of Righteousness could trigger too many procs when it hits multiple targets.

Please note that some issues are fixed directly, not via hotfix, and are reflected here.
