Game Glitches

In all the years I’ve been playing WoW, there have been many in-game glitches. Some are quite amusing, while others result in some really good “What The” moments. I’ll admit it’s more common to find them just after a big patch and not just because your Addons need updating. I recall riding through Arathi Highlands the day after a big patch hit only to find raining Kodos and other wildlife.

There’s the standard too far away error text when you’re supposedly too far way to loot something even though you’re standing right on top of the mob or when you change your view one smidgen to the left or right and suddenly you’re outside of the dungeon/raid (this happened to me when I stood on the RHS of the Blood Queen’s chamber in ICC). Perhaps you need to talk to an NPC or something and they are classified as ‘Unknown’ So many bugs so little time…

So here’s a collection of some of the bugs I have caught in-game. I used to have more than these but over the years the collection has dwindled.

This particular Harpy died in a very peculiar position.

Have you ever gone to preview something only to see something like this?

How about logging in only to find a room full of naked people?

I guess that’ll teach Huga not to pounce at Alliance in AV as he became stuck in the snow.

Questing in Un’Goro, Coolidge was stuck mid cast like some funny BE statue.

Coolidge tries to kill me not once but twice…

Ok, I admit this one isn’t really a game glitch, but it was too amusing not to add.

My all-time favourite “What the” screenshot taken from one of Coolidge’s character screens. From what he told me, only Huga was buggy. All I can say is Teenage Mutant Ninja Huga :P

The last two pics always make me giggle :)

My 4.2 Breakdown

I must say, I was looking forward to the new patch for several reasons. New quests and rep to grind; new tier and raid plus a 2nd boss in BH. There weren’t any changes to note for Discipline, although there were a few for Shadow. Basically DOTs do less and my boom boom spells have been increased.

But why, oh why did they have to change the animation for Aegis? It was one of my most favourite things for my spec. When I crit it just looks like I just popped a regular bubble with sparkles. With any luck they will change this back. Probably just wishful thinking though. The other thing I’ve noticed is one new hairstyle for the female BE. I feel Jamaican with the long plait in my native black colour. I even experimented with a lighter shade but soon went back to black. It would have been cool though, if you could see the plait with my helm showing.

It’s interesting to note how many new achievements have been added for quests, in particular. It was especially nice to log in on Wednesday and see a number of achievements added to my tally automatically. Particularly for the non-combat pets. Three new pets in the mail were a nice surprise. It’s taken a bit of research to see what achievements I can accomplish so far and I’m doing pretty well – getting 3 just today :P

The new raid so far seems quite easy, well the trash at least. With a few attempts on Shannox too.

This is how he’s been described by Blizzard.
The ferocious flamewakers of this Elemental Plane are terrifying enough, but Shannox has brought companions to his side in defense of the Firelands. This mighty hunter will require that you find a way to deal with his blazing pets before he burns you to a crisp.

Probably why he’s on the G wallpaper :P The theme seems pretty popular with the votes so far – 4/6 as of this writing.

Anyway, look forward to opening up another NPC to get some nice stuff in a couple of weeks :)

That reminds me, I need to check out the balloon thing in Org tomorrow…

I Feel the Earth Move

Give me Wings

It’s been a couple of days since Patch 4.0.1 was implemented and we’ve all had an interesting time trying out our new talents and working out all the new changes and bugs which followed. With missing enchants, sporadic enemy name plates and glytched vertical corpses, just to name a few.

Dec 7 is still a fair way away but if you haven’t felt the earthquakes yet you must have been hibernating. Coolidge and I decided to check out Uldum yesterday. No change could be seen on our side of the gate though.

So what changes have you enjoyed or not appreciated so far? I must say I’m quite enjoying my smite healing build. I’m also loving the fact that all my mounts are now 310% speed meaning I can go back to my Sunreaver Dragonhawk. Oh and my wings are just a welcome and long awaited bonus :D
