Weekly Server Update – November 13 2016

Hello everyone,

With the new site comes a new weekly update to the server. While updates were happening to the server codebase before, it was never on a regular basis and there was never a list of what has changed. These updates will be posted on the weekend, listing all the changes made throughout the previous week.

Now, onto the changes for this week:

  • Database updates
    • Stratholme had a major rehaul, with much of the instance being redone, some completely from scratch.
    • Much of the NPC equipment was fixed/changed
    • Major fixes to the pet system
    • Many other minor fixes
  • Core updates
    • Fixed 2 major causes of crashing, so hopefully the server will be much more stable now. Unfortunately the Auction House Bot was one of the major causes of crashes, so it has been disabled for now.
    • Authentication bypass was fixed
    • Calculations for experience were changed to better reflect those of Classic
    • There should be no more damage from falling after stopping at the end of a flight path
    • Fix to talents that required a global talent reset.
    • Many other minor fixes

As you can see there is a fair amount that changed, but an even larger number of changes are not listed. With these updates becoming more regular we will be able to give a more detailed listing of what changes were made.
