Minor bugs to appear in patch 3.0.8

Eyonix posted a note about a few minor bugs that will appear when patch 3.0.8 goes live:
  1. Ritual of Summoning can only be used once every two minutes.
  2. Human females have animation errors when shooting a ranged weapon or using two-handed weapons.
Remember that with 3.0.8 Ritual of Summoning will be changed to create a summoning stone. The Warlock will cast Ritual of Summoning, which will drop the stone, which can then be used to summon other party/raid members. We are assuming that it's the actual casting of the spell to summon the stone that can only be used once every two minutes, and not the actual summoning of people.

We'll get some video of the animation errors up on WoW Insider as soon as we can, I'm sure there's some potentially funny stuff there.

And don't bother asking if 3.0.8 is coming tomorrow. While we think it's definitely possible, god only knows what Blizzard will actually do. I give it a 80/20 chance that it drops tomorrow morning.

Weigh in on the downtime debacle

It is no secret that servers have been seeing an awful lot of maintenance lately, and today has been the worst.

While the blues have been encouraging and supportive, the frustration has been mounting, and many players are threatening to call it quits.

Of course, players threaten this on a daily basis, so it comes as no shock.

The responses on the forums, when they are available, on our own site, and in our team mail have made the WoW Insider team somewhat curious. How are you feeling about Blizzard today?

Jump through the break to take our super-scientific poll!

Realms are being brought back online [Updated at 11:50 pm EST]

The opening announcement just told us all that realms are coming back online now. All the realms will be completely back up by 10:45pm EST / 7:45pm PST. Realms have been down today for an overly-extended maintenance period.

There will be an in-game mail sent to all players concerning the mail issues today. For those that are unaware, all mail that was in the mailbox prior to the downtime today was gone when the servers came up for a brief time today. We have covered everything we currently know about this. The mail will be reimbursed.

Let's all say a silent prayer that this is not how the next couple of days look. I don't know about all of you, but I actually want to play Wrath of the Lich King when it's released.

Update 11:50pm EST - All the realms are coming back up. We'll have more on fallout of this tonight and tomorrow.

Update 11:30pm EST - We've sent word to our contact at Blizzard asking for more information about today's issues. We'll let you know the response we get.

All previous updates are being kept after the break, check there to see a log of what's been going on.
Are you ready for the challenges that await you in Northrend? WoW Insider has you covered with our 8-day guide to Preparing for Wrath. Also, check out our feature on AddOns new, old and outdated and Essential AddOns for Wrath written especially with the expansion in mind.

Alterac Valley is now awarding honor correctly

Ever since patch 2.3 dropped, there has been speculation that battlegrounds have not been awarding honor properly. Because of the confusion over how the bonus honor from the daily battleground quests are awarded, I merrily ignored such debates and popped into Alterac Valley, as well as other BGs, like nothing was happening (hey, I wanted arena season one gear).

It soon became clear that at the very least, Alterac Valley was not shelling out honor as intended. You may have even noticed recently, a message delivered upon log-in, stating that the development team was currently working to resolve the issue. Fortunately, Eyonix has confirmed that the situation has been fixed and AV is once more running smoothly.

At this point, players all over the forums are requesting that honor be retroactively awarded. While I'm not sure if this is even possible, I doubt that we'll see it. Were you affected by the reduced honor, or did you not even notice? Are you seeking lost honor, or were you having fun in spite of the problem?

Robbing the guild bank

Players are reporting that their guild banks are being robbed by new guild recruits. While this is a known issue for Blizzard, many players are still unaware of the bug.

Currently, withdrawal limits are not reset when a character joins a new guild. Whatever a character's old guild status was carries over. In this way, officers are leaving guilds, joining new ones, and gaining officer access to the new guild's bank tabs. After withdrawing most of the loot, the character transfers servers or mails off the loot and deletes his toon. The guild logs report "Unknown" as the culprit.

In theory, any character could start their own guild, or get invited as an officer to a new guild (this is common when children start guilds), just to exploit this problem.

List of 2.3 known issues and bugs

A list of the current known issues since patch 2.3 arrived has just been posted on the forums by Hortus. It should definitely be read through before you post any "new" issues, although do note that the list does not include issues that are still being researched. Also, if you are bemoaning the plight of your class, just give this list a read-through; compared to the warp chasers, you're doing pretty well. In addition, it looks like it is not just hunter pets that are having pathing issues.

  • Dwarven racial Find Treasure is deactivated on death.
  • Undead Males main hand weapon is appearing larger than previous builds.
  • Equipping a thrown weapon while in the middle of an Auto-Shot will cause animation issues.
  • Inappropriate tooltip is displaying when a player hovers over Shartuul's Transporter on a flying mount.
  • Relogging on the flight path from Southshore, Hillsbrad Foothills to Ironforge, Dun Morogh in the entrance to Ironforge causes players to fly through a wall.
  • The flight path from Stormwind to Rebel Camp, Stranglethorn Vale clips through a tree outside of Stormwind.
  • Alliance flight path between Booty Bay and Stormwind goes through a tree.
  • There is a Feralfen Idol that is sunk into the floor in Feralfen Village, Zangarmarsh.
  • There is a tin vein in Hillsbrad Foothills that is unreachable.
  • There is a section of water that is clipping oddly into one of the waterfalls in Hatchet Hills outside of Zul'Aman.
  • The message "Zul'Aman Exterior InvisMan gains Cosmetic - Flame Patch X.X" appears in the combat log whenever a troll hut is burning in Hatchet Hills. This is one of my favorites!
  • There is a leanto in Agama'gor, The Barrens that has no tooltip appearing but will be highlighted when moused over it.
  • Players can wall jump a portion of the hallway to Gruul in Gruul's Lair to reach a overhanging log beam where they can evade the mobs.
