An Update to “Known Issues” for Cataclysm 4.4.0 – Several Hunter Issues Resolved, Missing Spells Resolved

an update to known issues for cataclysm 4.4.0 several hunter issues resolved, missing spells resolved

Blizzard is using this pre-patch as an opportunity to really dig down and see what issues are plaguing players and trying to take care of them before the release of the full Cataclysm Classic expansion. This time around we have a small list of issues that are now marked as “Issues Addressed”, with several of these being about pet classes or hunters in particular.

There was also a strange bug where people’s spellbooks would be missing spells, or they’d be in the wrong place, or you’d even see spells from expansions that there shouldn’t be! Oh my. Well, that should also be addressed.

That said, the bugfixing process can be brutal and there were also some issues added that they’re aware of but haven’t been quite able to nail down yet. For a full list of what’s been labeled “Addressed” and any new issues that have been taken note of, check out the original post below!

  • Some pet classes may have their pet action bar missing after logging out in a non-rested area.
  • Feral druid weapon normalization is not functioning properly, resulting in druids doing more damage than intended.
