Classic hotfixes: Somnus evade bug and swing timer macro bug fixed

Classic Hotfixes Somnus Evade Bug And Swing Timer Macro Bug Fixed

Kaivax has posted on the official WoW Classic forums that they have hotfixed two issues today.

One is for Somnus, a level 62 Elite dragon from Swamp of Sarrows. The fix corrects an evade bug when he is being kited over long distances.

The second fix is for a bug where specific macros would pause the swing timer, allowing it to be exploited with abilities such as Slam.

I’ve updated the OP here with recent Classic hotfixes:

January 7, 2020

  • Somnus will no longer become stuck evading when he is kited a great distance.
  • Fixed a bug that caused /stopattack and /startattack macros to pause the swing timer (rather than reset it) when used with abilities such as Slam.
