Today we have received the 1.15.0 update for Classic Era. This patch is likely the welcome wagon for Season of Discovery content, but it does tackle a few things I’m sure many players will be glad to see corrected.

Right off the bat, Enemy castbars are now toggle-able within the the default UI, something that has only been achievable through addons otherwise. Additionally, debuffs on Enemy Unit Frames will now display their duration.

A new vendor, Rix Xizzix has been added just outside the Old Port Authority in Booty Bay and will sell players “misplaced” quest reward Trinkets, allowing them to get them back.

We also have a decent list of basic bug fixes, with one major highlight being Taurens being back to their appropriately extended melee range, instead of the default for all other races.

In an additional post, Aggrend has listed a handful of known issues for the patch. These are issues that Blizzard are aware of and actively addressing, but that are still an issue as of this update. This includes a game crash when changing Shadow quality from Low to any other setting, interface errors when leaving dungeon groups, various spells having incorrect visuals, Ancient Qiraji Ripper having an incorrect icon, and Warrior Tier 3 having some odd texture issues.

The full patch notes can be found below.

World of Warcraft Classic Era Patch Notes
Version 1.15.0
November 14, 2023

 

Default UI Adjustments

  • Enemy castbars can now be enabled in the default UI in the Options menu under Interface.
  • Damage over time abilities and other debuffs will now display their remaining duration on the default enemy unit frame.

Developers’ notes: These are oft-requested quality-of-life features that are easily accessible using addons, so we’ve decided to just go ahead and add this functionality to the default UI, especially since this functionality has never been a restricted part of the Interface API.

Lost and Found

  • Added the lost and found vendor Rix Xizzix. This vendor will sell you certain quest reward trinkets that you may have misplaced. He’s located just to the south outside the Old Port Authority in Booty Bay.

Bug Fixes

  • The NPC Names Setting in the Options menu under Interface now functions properly.
  • Fixed an issue with the “clucking” animation that plays when you use the Skull of Impending Doom that caused the animation to not loop properly.
  • Taurens are now properly limbered up and their extra combat reach has been restored. Remember, it’s always important to properly stretch before doing physical exercise.
  • Warrior – Fixed an issue that allowed you to incorrectly swap to the stance you are already in.
  • Fixed an issue that would sometimes cause incorrect options to appear when right-clicking a member of a shared Battle.net group to send a whisper.
  • Fixed various interface errors with the Options menu.
  • Fixed an interface error that sometimes occurred when abandoning a quest.
  • Fixed an issue that allowed raid and party members without assist or set target markers.
  • Fixed an issue where some class and profession trainers were missing gossip options or had incorrect gossip options.
  • Fixed an issue that caused Redoubt to not proc when the Paladin is not wearing a shield.
    • Developers’ notes: This is authentic behavior which was fixed/changed at some point during Classic, and we’ve decided to restore it for Classic Era, Hardcore, and Season of Discovery.

I love MMOs of all shades, especially the nitty gritty numbers parts of them. You might recognize me from the Shadow Priest discord, otherwise I play a little bit of everything, especially games with support roles available.

Will the Classic Era servers be open all the time and parallel to them the SoD servers will be created ? 
Is Blizzard going to close the Classic Era servers ? 
I can’t find this information anywhere. 😀
