List of 2.3 known issues and bugs {WoW}

Nov 21st 2007 9:07AM @20(Justin): Which Nesingwary quests are you referring to, the ones in STV or the ones in Nagrand? If the latter, the XP rates only affect levels 20 through 60.

Leveling improvements for Patch 2.3 {WoW}

Oct 8th 2007 6:12PM I guess Jame better get crackin' on a new leveling guide.

Unofficial Patch 2.3 notes {WoW}

Oct 1st 2007 12:21PM I just noticed: Banish may no longer be cast on targets tapped by other players.

Boo. At least also include a change that lets our targets be tapped the moment we place a DoT and not 3 seconds later.

Around Azeroth: Trekking across Tanaris {WoW}

Sep 17th 2007 12:29PM Oh, and @maarek...WIN! That was hilarious.

Around Azeroth: Trekking across Tanaris {WoW}

Sep 17th 2007 12:28PM What's funny is when they have the wrong footprint for the type of mob or player. Didn't draenei have the wrong footprint at some point? I think I remember once my succubus or felguard having normal human footprints, complete with toes. LOL.

Bigger backpacks (and more) coming soon {WoW}

Sep 13th 2007 11:06AM At a bare minimum, they need to either increase the size of the default backpack, or allow the placement of a crafted bag in that slot. All my other bags are the primal mooncloth (and one ebon soul bag), yet I'm stuck with the 16-slotter in the backpack slot. What, is the damn thing sewn into my skin or something?

Sep 12th 2007 2:51PM Alrighty, if you won't read the link, I'll post the relevant text:

"The distinction between exploiting bugs and abusing game mechanics is a fine one. While bug exploitation involves the abuse of what is essentially a programming mistake, the abuse of game mechanics is the act of taking advantage of the limitations of the World of Warcraft game systems. Since the line between the sanctioned use and the abuse of game mechanics is sometimes unclear, we prefer to educate players before taking any action against the account being used.

This category includes using/distributing game mechanics in a manner unintended by their design that:

Damages another character, their gameplay, the service itself and/or its economy"

I'm not saying this is a bug or is an abuse, but it appears that Blizzard (or the GM in question) has interpreted this particular issue that way. In general, though, I would reply to you that it isn't always about "bugs" in the traditional sense. The TOS handles both bugs and intentional mis-use of game mechanics beyond what was intended by Blizzard.

Sep 12th 2007 1:41PM I'm with Squishy on this one. See Blizzard's policy on Bug Exploits here --> http://www.blizzard.com/support/wowgm/?id=agm01716p

The key words here are "intentional" and "repeatedly", I believe. Blizzard acknowledges that they cannot possibly find and fix every possible exploitable bug, so the policy is meant to address a player's knowing and repeated use of the bug in a way that damages other players or the economy. If you don't like these rules, you're free to quit the game. You accept them everytime the game is patched when you log in.

Sep 7th 2007 4:51PM It doesn't prove he's a hunter. Warlocks have the demon-tracking ability.
