MMO-Champion - Patch 4.0.6 Notes Update, 4.0.6 Hotfixes, Haste Bug
Haste Issue Causing Ability Errors
Originally Posted by Bashiok (Blue Tracker)
An apparent last-minute bug which was not found on the PTR before the patch was finalized has caused the client and server to disagree on the way haste affects resource generation. This bug will manifest itself in the UI showing a player they have enough resources to use an ability, but the server correctly prevents it as they in fact do not. A death knight for example might see a rune light up that isn’t actually available so when they use the ability, it won’t fire. A rogue may think they have enough energy to use Sinister Strike, but they can’t actually afford it so when they push the button, they will get an error. This bug could affect rogues, death knights, hunters and Feral druids, because these characters all gain more resources from haste. It will also affect buffs that affect attack speed, such as Slice and Dice, Windfury, Icy Talons, and Hunting Party, but also attack speed lowering effects like Thunder Clap. We're currently working on a fix.

Patch 4.0.6 Notes Update
Blizzard added a couple of notes after the release of the retail patch notes, let's call it the "ahah! I'm in your raid nerfing your bosses!" update.

    i noticed the resource bug on my rouge along time ago , wish they would have noticed it sooner

    Halfus 10 man has been trivialized. We just oneshot it and we laughed doing it. The progress we had on him last week feels completely wasted, like our tank said, like we wasted a week of our life.

    I'm not whining, I don't really care either way, but it's a bit beyond me why they'd nerf HEROIC encounters so much when it's really not meant for scrubs anyway, and only for people who like a challenge? I know there's still shit hard heroic bosses out there but that doesn't justify raping an heroic encounter the way they did.

    That's not why they suck. They suck becuase they're trying to pass off a nerf to our hp generation as a "bug fix". They suck becuase they're such bad liars.

    Uh the vast majority of those "nerfs" were fixes to make the encounters even possible.

    If you were actually doing Heroic raids, you'd understand they were needed. This isn't dumbing the game down or an attempt to knock your self worth, it was to bring down the blatant and obvious overtuning and to allow 10 man guilds to actually progress. Did you ever wonder why all the top guilds did all the firsts on 25 man, the so called "harder of the two"? Disregarding that a few of them are actually easier, several of the 10 man Heroic counterparts were *impossible* to kill.

    World first regular kills were done in leveling greens and blues.
    No they weren't? They were done in normal/heroic dungeon blues along with crafted and reputation epics. Those guys were running normal dungeons and getting gear before most of us were level 83. Never understood why people have to attempt to play up the top guilds. I'm sure a few of them may have had the odd green (ie: wands), but to say they were a guild full of greens and blues, is hilariously wrong.

    It's you who don't know what you are talking about. They did not have time to gear up because they had to raid the first (euro) lockout of cata. They did kill a couple of bosses in greens and blues.

    When one bug is fixed, a pair of new ones is set to life it seems

    So when they say they added new rep faction achievements they mean they removed the title you earned because they're too lazy to make a new one.

    Thumbs down to their undocumented, 50% increase in the cost of Viscious Gladiator weapons (at least mainhands, it's all I'm interested in). If they'd even hinted at the price increase in the notes, I would have used my points very, very differently last week. Here's the middle finger to you Blizz for "forgetting" to tell players you're about to add another week to their weapon grind.
