It looks like some World of Warcraft Classic players might not have been playing fair. Developer Blizzard has said that it’s identified a bug in the game that has meant people can farm final dungeon bosses over and over, without having to re-do the mobs leading up to them in the instance. The studio has created a fix for the problem, but it’s said it’ll also be looking for those who exploited it intentionally and will be handing out some “appropriate” punishments.

World of Warcraft Classic is upon us, and it’s safe to say that demand has remained high for the launch. Players on the biggest servers have suffered hours-long queue times to get in, and Blizzard was warning people to leave overpopulated realms even before those servers went live. You might even hit some substantial queue times on servers that don’t appear to be full, as it turns out the influx of players has even broken population reports.
One of the realms for World of Warcraft Classic has already filled up with so many players that Blizzard anticipates player queues of 10,000 or more on day one when the Ur-MMO launches later this month.
World of Warcraft Classic – the retro-themed version of WoW that takes the game right back to its starting days – is due to launch later this month, on August 27. Nevertheless, WoW Classic is already available to players on the test servers – where a potential problem with one of the game’s mechanics has shown itself.
Blizzard has confirmed that RP-PvP servers will be in place for World of Warcraft Classic in response to community requests. We’ll get a full breakdown of all the servers across regions sometime before name registration goes live next week – but for now, RP-PvP is only confirmed for North American players.
WoW Classic launches next month, taking players back to the earliest days of Azeroth. But while the MMO’s long-term fans are aching to relive those halcyon days, it’s fair to say that World of Warcraft used to be a little fraught. Thankfully however, it looks like Blizzard is a little better-prepared this time around – especially when it comes to gold farming.
MMORPG World of Warcraft has just got a pretty huge patch update called Rise of Azshara, which includes all kinds of goodies like new zones, quests, and systems. The 8.2 patch notes on WoW’s website are seriously meaty and make much mention of the new types of armour you’ll be able to grab, such as new Gnomes and Tauren heritage kit. Excitingly for many fans, however, is a feature humbly nestled pretty far down in the notes. Under Transmogrification Updates you’ll see something special – players can now make (almost) all of their armour slots invisible.
This is an odd one. World of Warcraft studio Blizzard has apparently announced that WoW is going to reduce its level cap – a so-called ‘level squish’ – at some point in the future, and it has done so via a customer survey asking if you knew about that.
Do you hear the river’s song? Have dreams of becoming the next Bard-ian of Tirisfal? If you’re within 40 in-game metres of some musically-minded folk in World of Warcraft, you might soon be hearing and playing a variety of songs – and not just the fishy Jinyu kind. A modder has just created an addon that lets you realise your dreams of becoming a bard.
Blizzard aimed for a faithful recreation of the original game—flaws and all. ARS T...
