Is it a bug or is it a feature? Some WoW Classic players are apparently not quite sure. Blizzard has therefore published a "Not A Bug" list, in which they often list user-reported content that actually works as intended. Update: In the meantime, the developers have added an entry to the legendary weapon Thunderfury to their list.
Update from February 20, 2020: Blizzard has the Not-A-Bug list added another point and reminded players that all sword-carrying classes are able to use the legendary weapon Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker to apply. This means that classes such as magicians and warlocks can also complete the associated quest line and equip the weapon themselves.
Update from May 25, 2019: Some non-bugs have been added. Among other things, the question of whether the size of the gnomes is correct after players noted that gnomes are much smaller on the live server than on the classic beta servers was clarified.
Update from May 21, 2019:
Community Manager Kaivax expanded the "Not A Bug" list recently added two more entries. For one thing, it will not be possible to turn an enemy target (into a sheep) if that target has already been tapped by a player you are not in a group with. On the other hand, the aggro radius has been adjusted at all player levels and now corresponds to the predicted distance. We have expanded the list in the original report accordingly.
Original message from May 18, 2019:
Some things look like bugs, but they are not. Because WoW Classic differs from current WoW in various larger and smaller details (buy now for € 6.99) including Battle for Azeroth as well as different from the memories of the players of Vanilla WoW, there is apparently often confusion on the WoW Classic beta servers at the moment. Because beta testers keep reporting about supposed bugs, which are normal or wanted game elements, Blizzard has now published a "Not A Bug" list (via Wowhead).
If you are currently or will be traveling in the WoW Classic beta in the future, there is no need to report the following things as a bug:
- The Hit boxes for tauren and their melee range is slightly larger than that of other races.
- The abilities tantrum. blood Craze and accounting do not activate on characters who are sitting suffer critical hits,
- Using the option Automatic quest tracking does not automatically track newly accepted quests, but begins tracking active quests as soon as a character progresses toward the quest's destination.
- The Health regeneration for warriors works as intended.
- The game shows Quest goals and important locations neither on the map nor on the mini map.
- Completed quests appear on the map with a dot (not a question mark).
- Gefearte players and NPCs run fast.
- Characters standing on top of other characters and turning away from them can use spells and attacks.
- The Respawn rates creatures / opponents turn out much longer than in Battle for Azeroth.
- NPCs that offer multiple quests will consequently display them as a point or as an exclamation point in the list of available quests. The developers have reproduced the exact state of the game with patch 1.12.
- Quests for which the level of the player character is insufficient do not appear as an exclamation mark above the NPCs in the game world.
- Available quests do not appear as exclamation points on the mini map.
- With patch 1.12.1 there was an ad: "Your ability in protection has improved to 15" – the developers want to keep this ad.
- You will not be able to oppose an enemy polymorphousthat has already been tapped by players who are not in a group with you.
- The Aggro Radius of opponents has been adjusted to the intended range at all player levels.
- Quest objects do not always have a text display.
- The fall damage is correct
- Balloons from NPCs can appear more often when multiple players interact with the NPC.
- Wanted quests over signs have no exclamation mark.
- A character's loot animation does not always occur, for example when collecting quest items.
- Gnomes and tauren are the right size
- The legendary Thunderfury sword can be earned and carried by all classes that can carry swords.
This list clearly shows how much the WoW community has already got used to various comfort functions that did not yet exist in Vanilla WoW. What do you think? Which points surprised you, which do you remember well? Let us know in the comments!
