Blizzard has announced that it has launched the final World of Warcraft Classic Pre Launch test ahead of Classic’s release later this month.

We reported on Classic’s final pre-launch test last week alongside the game’s PC requirements. This final test has now kicked off and is available to all World of Warcraft players with a current subscription or active game time in all regions. The maximum character level is level 15.

Alongside the start of this final test, Blizzard has also announced that it has fixed more Hunter Beta issues. Some reported bugs have been added to the ‘Not a Bug List’, but numerous other Hunter issues have actually been addressed. We’ve included the list of changes down below:

Not A Bug:

The rate at which pet focus regenerates is not always consistent

  • Note: While the actual amount of focus that can be generated per tick is inconsistent, the total amount generated over time is flat and consistent. There are slight variations in the time betweenticks that cause this to display inconsistently.

Pet aggro radius is working properly and as expected. This is to say, it was extremely inconsistent in original WoW, and it remains inconsistent in WoW Classic

Confirmed Fixed:

Attacking in melee cancels the hunter’s active Auto Shot timer

  • Note: This remains a high skill-cap maneuver, but using a melee attack while an Auto Shot timer is active, then re-enabling Auto Shot for a ranged attack should be much more responsive now and should no longer completely reset the Auto Shot timer

When a Quiver or Ammo Pouch is equipped, the tooltip for Aimed Shot incorrectly reflects an attack speed bonus from the Quiver or Ammo Pouch that it does not actually receive

The Hunter’s quiver may occasionally appear in the Hunter’s hand instead of the Hunter’s equipped weapon

There is a slight delay on Hunter and Warlock pet’s auto-cast abilities

The Auto Shot sound and animation will cycle each time you change targets while Auto Shot is active

Hunter’s Mark can stack on a target with different ranks of Improved Hunter’s Mark

Multi-shot can hit totems

Hunter pet abilities are not automatically populated to the pet bar when trained

Eagle Eye and Farsight abilities will fail if targeted on a location that is more than 100 yards from the player

World of Warcraft Classic launches globally on August 26/27.
