WoW Hotfixes - June 22, 2022

    • Developers’ note: The ability to restrict the field of view was added in 9.2.5 as an accessibility measure to help alleviate motion sickness. All of World of Warcraft -- the art, combat mechanics, and player interactions -- are built within the parameters of the user interface experience and scale. Increasing the field of view beyond the limit that has been in place since WoW launched was not intended.

Burning Crusade Classic

  • [With realm restarts] To address a bug that prevented Midsummer Fire Festival bonfire quests from resetting for players who previously completed them, all Midsummer bonfire quests will be reset. This includes any yearly quests that players might have completed for the first time since the event began at 12:01 a.m. on June 21.
    • Developers' note: This fix requires that we restart all realms, so to get the fix applied as soon as possible, we're preforming realm restarts soon during off-peak hours in each region.

    Aye, I saw the news report on wowhead and thought "Oh shit, this is gonna get fixed FAST"

    Just like the auto cast for reticle based spells

    The bone-headedness of blizzard never ceases to amaze me, just like the max camera distance fix back in the day.

    People throw such fits because they claim WoW is "pay2win" and give some people an unfair advantage. And then throw the same fits when something that actually does give people an unfair advantage is fixed.

    It's a wonder some of you don't light yourselves on fire more often.

    Wasn't there an addon for increasing the FoV? I remember something like that being added for people who didn't want to use macros for whatever reason.

    Intersting, glad I am lucky to not have seen it since I always click bosses during our raids .
    I'll be on the lookout tonight during raid time.

    This gives the "Unfair Advantage" to the people that have it at 120 as opposed to 90.

    Pics and Video in that post on WoWHead that explains it pretty well.
    the difference between 90 and 120 isn't likely to be a major advantage. I can see it occasionally being a slight edge, possibly even the deciding factor in an extremely closely matched game. and that imbalance, small as it may be, is also easily solved. one way is the way blizzard did it. break the console command and have everyone stuck with the same maximum field of view. even playing field. but it's been pretty obvious time and again that this IS a feature that many players want and value. so surely a better solution, one that would have the exact same effect of evening the playing field but without any backlash would be... change the max field of view setting in the UI options so that people who know about the console command no longer have an advantage over those who do not. anyone can set their field of view to 120 quite easily. nobody has to, but anybody can. how is that not both the better and the more obvious solution?

    Hunters mark was starting autoattack was one of the problems

    Yes, compare a simple command that anyone can use to paying real money for advantage. Dont spill that gasoline on yourself by accident.
