World of Warcraft Classic

Some World of Warcraft Classic ‘Bugs’ Are Actually Features

Diligent players have been reporting World of Warcraft Classic bugs as the game has just kicked off its beta test. Developers are typically quite thankful for bug reports as it helps them shore up any mistakes they may have missed in their quality assurance process. However, sometimes a feature or quirk is erroneously reported as a bug. Enough of these misreported bugs have popped up that Blizzard has decided to respond.

Blizzard has put out a ‘not a bug’ list that covers many commonly-reported features that seem strange to players, such as players and NPCs that are feared running faster, and quest objectives not being tracked on the map or minimap. Respawn rates for creatures is much slower than it is in Battle for Azeroth, and this is intentional – it reflects the respawn rate in the World of Warcraft version 1.12.

The “WOW Classic ‘Not A Bug’ List” has been posted to the game’s official forums. The list highlights several commonly-reported bugs that are working exactly as intended. Several of the items on the list seem like strange quirks, but several of the items can also be interpreted to be genuine bugs. That said, Blizzard is deciding to leave them in for posterity’s sake.

It looks like Blizzard anticipated a bit of head-scratching over it all from beta players, and clarified things in a forum post, first reported by Eurogamer. “As we’ve discussed before, the nature of WoW Classic sometimes invokes different memories for different players, and this leads to certain misconceptions for some about what is or isn’t working as intended,” Blizzard wrote. Finally, to enjoy all the features in the game, players can Buy World of Warcraft Classic Gold from at a reasonable price.
