I've been testing out TBC server and was wondering if there's a good place to post them. For now, I'll put my first set of notes here. Please let me know if you want a different format, want anything specific tested or posted in a different location.
Portal trainers: On the Horde side, you have to go to Org, Undercity & Thunder Bluff to train in all three portals. On the Alliance side, the portal trainer in SW trains five of the six Alliance city portals missing only the group Darnassus port.
Mail issues: The mail isn’t working. If you send items it will eat them and the recipient will get an email w/o any attachments with the name of what was sent in the subject line.
Zeppelin: The zeppelin from Org to Gromgol is apparently broken. It never showed up. When you ask the little goblin she said it just arrived there. I was able to go from Undercity to Gromgol.
Nat Pagel, Angler Extreme – this quest is broken. I spent two hours between Feralas and Desolace trying to catch the named fish and after 100+ catches in each zone at the correct spots, I was never able to fish one. This blocks anyone from leveling fishing past 225.
Most of the places where I found floating wreckage had a second pool of fish underneath it. It’s not all but most and definitely not classic.
Fishing pools are bugged. You can only have one successful catch per pool. After that, even when they are trivial, when the bobber shakes, when you click to catch the fish, the bobber disappears and it removes one spawn of the node.
The trunks you get from fishing have a very high rate of having nothing in them which is not classic. The only time they didn’t have anything in them was when it was the fishing pools tracking book . It might have been post TBC. If you already had fishing pools tracking memorized and fished another in a box, when you opened the box you saw nothing inside but it didn’t poof the box. You could then trade it to someone that hadn’t learned it yet even though the book was bind on pickup. This was true with bind on pickup recipes that you found in junk boxes from pick pocketing.
Preparing the salve: Hellfire spineleaf respawns in the exact same location within 30 seconds so someone could stand on the same spot and get all 12 in 6 mins.
Voidwalkers gone wild: I cast frostbolt on a rogue voidwalker and it resisted the spell but didn’t agro.
My spell hit rate was 72 = 8.67% + Arcane Subtlety & Arcane focus but I was getting resists with arcane missiles from regular mobs in Hellfire Peninsula (like a level 58 buzzard when I was 61).
There is a delay from when your spell hits the mob which should kill it and when it actually dies. Like ½ second or so, enough time for the mob to get an extra hit on you.
At the dark portal in Hellfire Peninsula (near Horde flight path), two NPCs have a portal open to Org but you can’t click on it.
Improved arcane missiles – I’ve been interrupted by a number of mobs which stopped me from finishing my 5 bolts. Example the undead horsemen in Hellfire have a charge stun. On live it would stun you but your bolts would continue to shoot.
Arathi Highlands – rare spawns Molok the Crusher & Geomancer Flintdagger both had no loot other than coin. Also, Kregg Keelhaul in Lost Rigger Cove (Tanaris). It seems like most (not all) rare spawns aren’t dropping anything. They should almost always have a green or better item.
Maurading crust bursters in hellfire chain cast 700+ damage poison ridiculously fast. Way over tuned.
The Fel cannon mki in Hellfire chain fire super fast also.
I distinctly remember when TBC first opened, there were ore nodes behind the dark portal/the stair of destiny in Hellfire Peninsula. It was a “safe” place to mine since there were no mobs.
