Below is a list of known issues for the initial WoW Classic Burning Crusade Beta release (build 38043). Please note that this list is not comprehensive and is not a complete depiction of what we’re aware of, but a sampling of issues we believe players may encounter with some regularity. We hope to have fixes to these issues in place soon for upcoming beta builds, but we cannot promise when or if any individual bug will be fixed.

As always, we encourage players to utilize the in-game bug reporter (and bug report mouseover hotkey – Default hotkey: F6) to send us information on bugs you encounter during the WoW Classic Burning Crusade beta.

Thank you!
