Ghostcrawler has updated us on the status of three major bugs that have been present since patch 3.0.8 went live last Tuesday.
- The Hunter Aspect bug, in which aspects are on a global cooldown like mechanism.
- The Warlock Ritual of Summoning, which had a two minute cooldown implemented to prevent some sort of undisclosed exploit.
- Howling Blast, which showed to not have a cooldown, but in reality had a five second one.
There is no word if these fixes will come in the form of a small patch to the client, or if they are going to be done server side. Since the Howling Blast is a bug that is linked to client data files, I would assume that fixing it necessitates rolling out a minor patch. However that's just an assumption based on the way things were done in the past, and Blizzard could have other technology present to circumvent the need for a full patch.
Nonetheless, a couple more bugs will get fixed tomorrow. This is a good thing.
