In what is now a tradition, Cataclysm Classic has been followed with a list of known issues. This covers things that Blizzard are aware of and working on but have not yet fixed.

Of course, with the Beta being in the state it was, this list having some concerning entries is not entirely surprising. Here are some of the highlights from their list so far.

Pet classes are having a lot of issues, including not having a pet bar, not having the Assist option for their pets, having the Assist function without it working, and pets being a lower level than intended. I hope you weren’t planning on playing a Hunter day 1!

Maps are currently not displaying in some instances, such as Zul’Gurub or End Time. This does not make any mention of the fact that those dungeons should not be available at all currently, the issue is only that they’re missing maps when you are there.

Guild chat is currently not displaying as expected. I’m not quite sure what this means, but this is the only “Very High Priority” issue listed, so at least we can hope this will be fixed soon.

Heirlooms also still have Spell Power where they shouldn’t, as Spell Power is almost entirely reserved for weapons.

Hopefully this should all be fixed fairly quickly, time will tell!
