Last patch broke SOM

What’s up with all the new bugs from the last SoM patch?

Mobs in the water ie the turtles in Hillsbrad or the crocodiles in Dustwallow Marsh are all spawned half in the water and half under the earth, when you agro them they swim straight down under the world for 50yards before swimming up another 50 which takes 30seconds plus.

The zeppelins get stuck just before they port over the water.

How does something that isn’t changed in the patch notes get messed up?

How does blizzard ruin things they don’t even touch. It’s not even maddening anymore it’s actually amazing.

Just wanted to pop in and let everyone know that we are aware of the issues with creatures pathing through non-ocean pools of water and are working hard on a fix now. This is a pretty complex issue to fix as it involves modifying the terrain itself in most areas of Azeroth and requires a lot of testing before we can build confidence that our fix didn’t cause other issues. Additionally, the fix will require deployment during a weekly maintenance and at this stage we think it’s pretty unlikely this will be tested and ready for deployment during next week’s Tuesday maintenance. We hope to have more info soon on when we’ll be able to apply this fix.

As for the cases of the mysteriously missing boats and zepplins, we are also working on a fix for this and we hope to have that fix out by sometime early next week.

Thanks for the reports on these issues, and stay tuned for more info!
