WoW Classic: Hotfix fixes bug of Dragonslayer World buff and other bugs

As promised, Blizzard has applied a hotfix to the WoW Classic servers that, among other things, fixes a bug with the Dragonslayer world buff. As we recently reported, players were able to exploit this bug to specifically cancel the buff by stopping the associated NPCs during the headshot event via headshot. This will cancel the event and the buff will not be awarded.

Blizzard said in a blue post that in the original version of World of Warcraft it was not possible to headbutt the NPCs and cancel the event. As a result, the team wants to provide a hotfix that "more accurately reflects the correct behavior [of NPCs] from the original WoW."

Headbutt no longer cancels the event

The developers have since responded and fixed the problem via hotfix as announced. The team writes in an official bluepost (via Wowhead) that the use of Headbutt on the NPCs Supreme Leader Runthak, Major Mattingly, and Field Marshal Afrasiabi "no longer prevents Battlecry of the Dragonslayers from being cast during their event dialogue." This means players can no longer deliberately prevent the buff by briefly knocking out the associated event NPCs as a rogue of the opposing faction.

The hotfix also fixes two other bugs in WoW Classic (buy now €24.99 ):

  • Spell animations are no longer interrupted when there is a short pause between casting each spell.Some issues with Tyrion not offering quests will be fixed with the next regional reboot.
