Arena season is over and so is raiding season. Sure players go try to do some missing achivement or get a missing piece of gear but the race is over due to talent/damage changes etc.

More and more players spend time at the end of the xpac in bg's or practice arena.
Ontop of this, the changes to Wrathful gear increase the people doing PvP even more, which is nice :)

A few big bugs are annoying tho.
I'm thinking primarily on pet classes.

  • I expected 4.0.1a to fix the resiliance bug for pets. Not really fun to have a pet that get 2 shotted, especially not for the classes that depend heavily on their pet.

  • I expected 4.0.1a to fix the dissmount & resurrect bugs. Hunters suffer from their pet being at 50% hp and warlocks that their pet does not always resummon upon resurrect when it should.

  • I expected 4.0.1a to fix the Succubus issues as well.

  • So what is the word on this from blues?

    Although we currently have no information we can share with you regarding the status on specific issues or bugs, we want you guys to know that we are working hard to have these fixed as soon as we possibly can.

    We do understand the frustrations some people are having when things aren't exactly working as they should, and we also recognize the desire for you guys to know that we are indeed worked on resolving the bugs and fixing the issues that are annoying you.

    You may not know this, but there has been a lot of progress on fixing issues since patch 4.0.1 was launched. In fact, hundreds of bugs have been fixed pretty much on a weekly bases, and plenty of hotfixes have been deployed. We would like to keep you guys informed every time we fix something, but it is not always possible for us to do so, although we of course try our best. With this in mind, I would like to quote a post made by Ghostcrawler a short while ago on the topic of fixing bugs:
    Q u o t e:
    Please don't interpret [no blue post] as "we aren't going to fix this."

    As issues are discovered, fixes are being developed to address those issues. In the cases when issues cannot be hotfixed, those issues will be fixed in a patch instead. Fixes can unfortunately take some time to develop, which is a big reason why it sometimes takes a while before an issue is resolved, but when we are sure that a fix will work properly and not break something else, it will get implemented.
