Blizzard Launches World of Warcraft Classic Pre-Launch Test; More Hunter Issues Have Been Fixed
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
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.
