World of Warcraft Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • GrogmanWoW Grogman (@GrogmanWoW) reported

    @WarcraftDevs a time to reflect quest is broken. After accepting the quest there’s only about a 20% chance when talking to the quest giver to get a question.

  • Fevion24 Fevion (@Fevion24) reported

    @Warcraft @BlizzardCS I pre-ordered the Epic edition on the 9th and I'm still missing the Hearthstone Toy. I have had a ticket in since 4:37 EST Nov 9th... Any help would be amazing. Seriously it's going on day 3 now... Issue ID: #69410222

  • Necroxis9 Necroxis (@Necroxis9) reported

    It also seems pretty out of character for Baine, of all people, to tell the Vulpera, who were integral in stopping the Sethrak & saving the Horde's Speaker, that they're too busy to take in new allies. Just because of relatively minor problems that they then solve. #Warcraft

  • karensue30 Karen Sue Hondow (@karensue30) reported from Houston, Texas

    @WarcraftDevs I am continually getting applacation errors while playing takes me to a screen to write down what I was doing at the time and it gives me a number 3712CAA8-EACF-4F8B-A4C3-C3199C685708 that is from the last error

  • leowyld Leo Wyld 🦝 (Raccoonatic Commander) (@leowyld) reported

    The Worgen heritage armor quests are about convincing someone not to be a Worgen... and I find *myself* convinced of that the more I think of it. Feel a disconnect now. But I'm refocusing on Vulpera. Maybe that's what I needed after maining Worgen for nearly a decade. #Warcraft

  • GloriousKev 🦃🦃🦃⌨🎧 Gobble Gobble Kev🖥🖱🦃🦃🦃 (@GloriousKev) reported

    I wish @Blizzard_Ent would bring back Warcraft RTS. I understand that their focus has been on WoW and that the story has far surpassed where Warcraft RTS left off but it would be cool to even have stories set in that universe happening side by side in a live service game

  • mattwhotweets matt, with a job! (@mattwhotweets) reported

    It’s too bad world of Warcraft doesn’t take 17 hours to install like it used to. That way I’d be able to delete it and not have the energy to redownload it and that way solve at least 4% of my life’s problems...

  • Tha_Row Don (@Tha_Row) reported

    @xMeloo78 @Larsfest We don't know what he's going through because he didn't tell us, which IS the issue... For all we know he could be just playing World of Warcraft. You're a bit dim if you think not updating people who paid your rent is a smart or fair decision. This is how dead streams happen.

  • carl_daughter cody carlson (@carl_daughter) reported

    @ChuckDewland How is it ethical for @Warcraft to Sweep this HUGE issue under the rug like there isn’t a giant issue at hand...

  • DiceNDinosaurs Mankylosaurus but spooky or something I don't know (@DiceNDinosaurs) reported

    @JimSterling There was also an issue with the world or warcraft tournament at Blizzcon. Basically Blizzard had fans pay for the prize pool by selling a pet in wow and lead people to believe that they would also put in money. Could be worth a bit of research. Not sure if you already knew 🤔

  • RadiHood Radi Hood (@RadiHood) reported

    @F22DemoTeam toxic names to @Warcraft Hunter pets psychic. waiting mail, BG postal service original.

  • _Drekzz Connor O'Shea (@_Drekzz) reported

    @shutupdarrie @Warcraft I have friends who competed in MDI and blizzard was disgraceful to both the players and the fan base. Whether or not they stated the facts as a technicality is not the issue. This was intentionally misleading to the whole community. Love ya Darrie. Please be GM of my life x

  • halfogren Rhaego Halfogren (@halfogren) reported

    @PantheonMMO I think there should be a way you can have both. Like World of Warcraft has this problem currently too, and it could be easily solved if they disabled transmog appearances in instanced group content imo.

  • RadiHood Radi Hood (@RadiHood) reported

    I hope we'll not have the same tone issue as in W.O.W. (abreviation). Tweeting all in CAPSLOCK is rude. There is ./r red collow for yelling. In warcraft pretending to be a 12 Years old ain't exactly the attitude to get in BWL! All know. Got to 2B in shape 2b i raid limited slots

  • 666Ghosty Something Ghosty (@666Ghosty) reported

    @warcraftdevs #bugreport QuestID 50899 broken, no item for Alliance.

  • MrFlibble007 Bradley Weaver (@MrFlibble007) reported

    @jimbobaus @shutupdarrie @Snutztv @Warcraft For me the issue was it was a bit abstractly worded, and then after almost everyone interpreted it as %25 profits from toy sales being added to base pool and advertised it as such nobody from Blizzard put out a statement or contacted personalities to correct the misconception.

  • Veiledgg 𝗦𝘂𝘇𝘆 (@Veiledgg) reported

    @shutupdarrie @Warcraft My word. I’m even more saddened to hear about the practice and food issues. This is a very big deal and I’m really thankful you made this statement. Blizzard, please just take care of your people. Jesus.

  • shutupdarrie darrie (@shutupdarrie) reported

    @jimbobaus @Snutztv @Warcraft agree to disagree that the narrative promoted (and never discouraged) all year was that the toys boost the prize pool the other issues discussed in the post have merit, perhaps even more than the prize pool as they directly impacted the performance and experience of the players

  • crzypck Crzypck (@crzypck) reported

    @Warcraft @WarcraftDevs @Blizzard_Ent this sums up this issue pretty nicely. I've been a defender of most decisions you make. This is not one of them. You screwed up, and we deserve a statement. These guys and gals train all year, and you screwed them.

  • aetherlev Claire Ryan (@aetherlev) reported

    Character in Mekkaneer Madness: partially disabled mad scientist who doesn’t try to fix his disability because that’s like the least interesting thing he could be doing with his time He’s a cross between a goblin tinkerer from Warcraft and Hermann from Pacific Rim

  • OnlyOneSylvanas 🏹 Dark Ranger Ranathel 🌒 (@OnlyOneSylvanas) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent @Warcraft Please can you fix the insane lag on EU in Nazjatar this morning, guys - it’s nigh on unplayable 😤

  • creepybard The Bard's Gambit (@creepybard) reported

    Problem: After playing Starcraft 2, my instinct is to play the game AS QUICKLY AND EFFICIENTLY AS POSSIBLE. Warcraft 2 is not designed to accommodate this, and in fact discourages it in favor of careful planning

  • Mordecai7342 SHADOWLANDS (@Mordecai7342) reported

    Mulverick's beacon, an AV quest item doesnt seem to work correctly. I acquired it after turning in stormpike soldier flesh for the wing commander air strikes. I'm right in the middle of snowfall graveyard and I get an error saying it doesnt work. @WarcraftDevs

  • Spellweaver37 Etarberec {Gentle Oathsworn} (@Spellweaver37) reported

    I will only play Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled if Beenox adds Sylvanas Windrunner from World of Warcraft into the game. Otherwise, I have no motive to do so unless the point is yelling at Activision-Blizzard for being evil.

  • Shahdo81 Shahdo (@Shahdo81) reported

    @ItsLiviaChu @Warcraft my issue was people afking for the Wrath wing and then Cata wing we had Ragnaros bug out and kept loading us in over and over.

  • ChefPaulito 🇵🇷 Paulito (@ChefPaulito) reported

    @ItsLiviaChu @Warcraft Arthas went smooth for me.. Rag was a problem

  • FC_Hordz Hordz (@FC_Hordz) reported

    @Akinipool @Warcraft @WarcraftDevs That's not the problem. It's the fact that the 120 boost alone on both editions is making me suspicious that its the main reason for the bundles high prices. When the base game is already 35 euros / 40 dollars

  • JustFoges Foges (@JustFoges) reported

    @WarcraftDevs fix the imbalanced realms like stalagg or everyone is legit going to quit playing.

  • ataraxianautist 👻 Ghosty Gò.Ó 👻 (@ataraxianautist) reported from Wibsey, England

    Dislocation of mind from thoughts and body simultaneously. It causes a kind of discontinuity. Repetitive behaviour that produces a + b to fix; that's why I #Warcraft Spoon theory. 👍🖖

  • americangosh Tanner McSwain (@americangosh) reported

    Surely I'm not the first person to notice that the very serious premise for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands --that due to divine error, everyone who dies is being sent to super hell to get mega tortured -- is literally a plot point from @nbcthegoodplace

  • selk_matthew matthew Selk (@selk_matthew) reported

    @Warcraft Fix your classes

  • RobertHaynesJr1 Robert Haynes Jr (@RobertHaynesJr1) reported

    @InfinityWard You all should be working around the clock to fix this game. Blizzard did, with its bad releases of World of Warcraft! They even pissed people off and shut down servers on a launch night because of crashes!

  • Ratapai_ Ratapai (@Ratapai_) reported

    @facilez @Supatease @WarcraftDevs yeah I can see that and it's a bandaid fix for sure, dampening shouldn't even exist in the first place if the game was good

  • facilez facilez (@facilez) reported

    @Ratapai_ @Supatease @WarcraftDevs well if you start against dh war / tsg as jungle as disc even with vitality radiance you wouldnt make it until youre oom - insta dampening is just a bad bandaid fix

  • stubakka Stubakka (@stubakka) reported

    🤬 @Warcraft fix Onyxia and her strange aggro table. I played vanilla over 10 years ago and she never acted like this. I have tanked her countless times and it was never this random aggro mess it is now when she lands. On behalf of your player base. Fix it #onyxia

  • HighlordDalanos Dalanos Grimreaver (@HighlordDalanos) reported

    @HellPockets The only reason my Xbox is wired is because HiRez has shitty servers and Smite can’t handle WiFi. It’s the only@game I play that gives me problems with WiFi. Not World of Warcraft, not Street Fighter and not Overwatch.

  • Lezontatv Lezonta 🔜 Classic WoW P2 (@Lezontatv) reported

    @Milksteaklol @norththemage @WarcraftDevs We talked a lot to developers at Blizzcon about the lag, it won’t be fixed and suggested faction queues to force the bigger faction out.

  • OliviaDahan tiredcollegestudent (@OliviaDahan) reported

    @RockstarSupport I have hope I really do... but I uninstalled my world of Warcraft for this. I hope you guys fix this soon.

  • Bwilli1991 BWILLI (@Bwilli1991) reported

    @BlizzardCS @Warcraft I have not received a response yet. The guard issue is pretty irritating.

  • tamenctr Tamen (@tamenctr) reported

    @Summer_Sal @Volstatsz @Warcraft @LittleSparkzLFG @DevouringEye Oh. Yah we didn't have any weirdness with pets on Rag that I noticed. We had some "I'm standing in a bad spot" problems from 75% of the raid on the first pull, but we killed it on the second pass.

  • RyanMeese Ryan Meese (@RyanMeese) reported

    @id_Surge @norththemage @WarcraftDevs giving numbers will worsen the problem for sure

  • Volstatsz Volstatsz (Cory) (@Volstatsz) reported

    @Summer_Sal @tamenctr @Warcraft @LittleSparkzLFG @DevouringEye Huh. We, um, had other problems with Rag. If we had pet problems, they were certainly overshadowed by "I have no idea what's happening" problems.

  • yuyuy193 Tyler (@yuyuy193) reported

    @blizzardCS @WarcraftDevs how do i disable addons from telling me theres a error with one i really couldnt care less about knowing a addon isnt working i can figure that out for myself

  • Rainkiss Denise Hurd (@Rainkiss) reported

    @crusaderesper @Warcraft @DevouringEye We didn't have that problem, got through it after a couple of tries.

  • Frenaris Frenaris (@Frenaris) reported

    @Misfit_WoW @WarcraftDevs Eh. I had no issue, I thought it was cool and worked fine for me

  • KestrelWaves Naomi Knowles (@KestrelWaves) reported

    Office is trying to get me to play world of warcraft classic with them. Which would be great, but I keep turning every offer to socialise down, citing money issues. Besides, classic was good years ago, but I've done my time with it. My own worst enemy really.

  • _Zurilia Zurilia @ 🔜 PaX South (@_Zurilia) reported

    @crosseyedCOBRA Agreed it’s a shame the issues the game had cause I remember at one point thinking it would easily go toe to toe with World of Warcraft & FFXIV. Their biggest mistake was selling off to NCSoft and not spending one more year in house testing/development.

  • evertonbelmontt Éverton Stéffane (@evertonbelmontt) reported

    @WarcraftDevs currently being OOM as an afflic warlock in PTR while using drain soul with high haste. I assume it's not intended. Also, if we use inevitable demise and drain life for DPS with 40+ stacks, you REALLY get OOM FAST. Fix it please, make DS cost less mana at least.

  • Thepsychofreak Feidreva (@Thepsychofreak) reported

    @Skovald97 @ckaleiki @Warcraft I don't know what it is related to, but when I kill a player I seldomly get the chance to loot them. Probably a matter of lag or others having addons. I dunno but it's rare I can get any. the safer way to earn badges are to bring back rams, and to go to the mines. Sad, but true

  • leowyld Leo Wyld 🦝 (Raccoonatic Commander) (@leowyld) reported

    I transferred over my Worgen, who is using most - but not all - of the Eternal Traveler transmog and no crash. So, the issue is likely with the helm, boots and/or chest (the pieces my Worgen isn't using) #Warcraft #PTR

  • leowyld Leo Wyld 🦝 (Raccoonatic Commander) (@leowyld) reported

    I was gonna be on the Anasterian server but, after transferring my character with the Eternal Traveler transmog caused the character list to crash, I moved over to Nobundo. And that's probably will I'll be spending a good amount of time over the next few months. #Warcraft #PTR

  • ckaleiki Chris Kaleiki (@ckaleiki) reported

    @Restodroodopz @Warcraft We noticed that. We have a hotfix on the way to fix this. Thanks for the report!

  • RMR_1973 ® راشد العازمي (@RMR_1973) reported

    @Warcraft @BlizzardCSEU_EN @BlizzardCS @Blizzard_Ent you think you can fix it , but you don’t #battleforazeroth #WoWClassic

  • OrcLordBarbok OLBarbok (@OrcLordBarbok) reported

    Am I the only one having extreme lag in the #warcraft 15th anniversary event fights, right when the teleport animation starts until the fight ends my fps just dip to 5fps from 100+ @warcraftdevs please help

  • TruVillainManny Tru Villain Manny (@TruVillainManny) reported

    Also if you have the new weapon transmog, Wraithchill, take it off your character before transferring it over. It will crash the PTR client. @WarcraftDevs

  • Supercujos Johnathan Andrews (@Supercujos) reported

    @BlizzardCS @Warcraft @WarcraftDevs issue on ragnaros where you get ported out into firelands mid pull and receive no loot when the group finishes and you do not receive credit for completing it.

  • leowyld Leo Wyld 🦝 (Raccoonatic Commander) (@leowyld) reported

    A warning - I believe that having the Eternal Traveler transmog (or probably even its pieces) on a character that you transfer to PTR will cause it to crash every time it loads the character select screen. Change your transmog before transfer!!! @Warcraft #PTR

  • hoodnewzmedia Hoodnewzmedia (@hoodnewzmedia) reported

    @Qwik @XboxP3 @Blizzard_Ent Warcraft to Xbox gamepass is a sub seller and would be the biggest hit for that service since it was created. Make it happen. PC is Xbox And Xbox is PC. Retweet and like to make this happen
