How do I report a bug?

You can now report bugs directly in-game through the Customer Support portal. For more information about how to do this, please read this support article

The in-game bug reporting tool doesn't work for me! What now?

If you are having difficulty reporting a bug then you should try resetting your interface and disabling your add-ons.

You can press CTRL+F (Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Google Chrome) to quickly search this sticky for known issues, for example, pressing CTRL+F and typing in "Heirloom" then pressing the enter key will take you to the known issue/fix related to Heirlooms.

Patch Notes

In this sticky you will find a list of major issues and bugs that we are currently aware of. Please note that this sticky will be updated with any major reports and is by no means exhaustive. You can check the most current hotfixes here.

If you are experiencing technical issues with the game client, please consult our Technical Support Forum for further assistance.

Some extra things to keep in mind before reporting a bug in-game

  • Please read our current known issues sticky bearing in mind that we're concentrating primarily on issues specific to Warlords of Draenor content. The problem you’ve encountered may already be listed below.
  • Please don't feel that you have to report every problem you run into. It's important that you take into account how often something happens and whether or not you're able to reproduce it.
  • If something only happens once and the circumstances are a bit fuzzy, it's generally very difficult for us to find out why. Issues that you experience regularly and/or have a very obvious cause are what we're keen to hear about; not only are they easier to identify and solve, their regularity probably means that they're more important to you and thus a higher priority.
  • When reporting the issue in-game, please be sure to write a clear description of the issue with any information that you think may be helpful/relevant.
  • If you come across an issue with the game, try replicating it without using any add-ons as outdated add-ons are the cause of the majority of issues that our players experience after the launch of a new patch.

This has since been resolved but if you have been affected by this issue, please open a ticket so this can be investigated.

Common Warlords of Draenor reports that are not bugs

Please remember that this list is by no means exhaustive but will be updated as required.

  • I can’t add a specific toy in my Toy Box! Help!
    Some items (must be equipped, linked to a TCG code, use on another character, etc.) have not been added to the Toy Box yet.
    In case you find an issue with an item, don’t hesitate to report it using our in-game bug report feature.
    If you have any feedback about the Toy Box, please don’t hesitate to send a suggestion in-game.
    Please do not contact our support teams regarding being unable to add toys to the Toy Box as they are unable to assist with this issue

  • This specific item has not been added to my toy list!
    Some items may need to be added manually to your list and you’ll need to right click them to add them.

  • What do I do with the toys left in my inventory?
    You can delete them if you want and free up some space in your inventory. All the items in the Toy Box are account wide and available to all characters after being added.

  • I had an epic Toy in my bags but I can’t find it anymore!
    Only active items have been added to your Toy Box. Items deleted a while ago are not included.
    Note that unless a Toy is tied to an achievement or a quest, our support teams will be unable to assist you in recovering it.
    In case the item has been recently deleted, you can always try to find it using our Item Restoration feature.

  • Boosted characters with limited access to their spells
    With the introduction of patch 6.0.2, characters which have been boosted to level 90 using the Character Boost feature will find themselves in the Blasted Lands, on the front lines in the battle against the oncoming Iron Horde. By completing this questline your character’s level 90 class abilities, and riding skills, will be unlocked.

  • Mount achievements and New Chopper
    Please note for the achievement for having 100 mounts, a character must have access to, and be able to use, at least 100 mounts.
    The ‘Chopper’ mount has been automatically added to your list if one of your characters has been connected before the 30th September Search your mount list for “Warlord’s Deathwheel”

  • I'm not seeing the new character models!
    Be sure you have the option selected in your in-game options. [System] > [Advanced] > "Show new character models.

  • I'm not getting any more Ritual Stones from rares!
    Ritual Stones should only drop once a week from Isle of Thunder rare bosses. Additional kills of these rare bosses in the same week will reward 15 valor points.

  • I leveled up and can't see a Flight Point.
    Flight points are no longer learned by leveling up and now require players to interact with each flight master to learn flight paths.

  • I can't teleport out of the dungeon during a solo scenario.
    The option to teleport out of dungeon for solo scenarios has been intentionally removed to prevent multiple issues that can occur.

  • I was fighting a summonable boss on the Isle of Thunder and it just disappeared!
    Summonable bosses on the Isle of Thunder will despawn if the player who summoned the boss is killed.

  • My Account-Wide Pets, Mounts and Achievements are not appearing!
    In order for your pets, mounts and achievements to go account-wide, you must log into the characters that had those pets, mounts and achievements originally. We recommend logging into each of your characters in turn to ensure that all of your pets, mounts and achievements are visible to all characters.

  • My Shaman Totem UI has disappeared!
    This is working as intended and is part of the class overhaul.

  • I can choose Worgen/Goblin/Pandarian characters but I don't have the Cataclysm/Pandarian expansion pack!
    All box levels can now create characters of all races.

  • All my cooking rewards have disappeared!
    These have now been combined into a single currency: Epicureans Awards. This not only cleans up your currency list a bit, but means that doing the daily quests in Stormwind can help you buy the Chef's Hat in Dalaran! =)

  • My Shadow Dance bar is the same as my Stealth bar now!
    This is an intended change, Shadow Dance no longer has its own bar.

  • When I equip more Intellect, my mana pool does not rise!
    This is an intended change in the way mana works. Caster pools are now relative to your level.

  • My ranged/Relic/thrown slot has disappeared!
    Indeed, these have been removed from the game. Weapons equipped before the patch will go into your inventory. If your inventory was full, empty a few slots and re-log and the item should appear.

  • Subterfuge doesn't appear to be working as it should.
    Subterfuge will not proc if Shadow Dance is cast immediately before Subterfuge should have been triggered. The Subterfuge version of Stealth is immediately removed when the Rogue gains Call of Conquest.

  • Players are not able to place the legendary meta-gems into upgraded ilvl 496 helms.
    It is intended that you can't put the legendary meta gem on an upgraded 496 helm, but the developers are currently discussing how upgraded items may behave down the road.

  • I did a heroic scenario but didn't get a heroic chest
    If you complete a normal scenario and receive the reward, then complete a heroic scenario, you will not receive a second chest. You only receive the chest from your first scenario of the day, regardless of whether that scenario is normal or heroic.

Current & On-going Known Issues

'Paused' when queuing for instances
This issue is under investigation. For a possible workaround, please see here.

Character undelete feature not available / triggering the cooldown
The character undelete feature has only been activated on specific realms. If this feature is not available to you in-game, this may be because your realm has not been updated yet. Our teams are working hard to activate this feature on all of our realms.
If you have been unable to restore your character but the 30 days cooldown triggered, please open a ticket so this can be investigated.

Mobile Armory and Guild Chat issues
We are currently investigating an issue which prevents players from using the guild chat on our Mobile Armory app. Our technicians are investigating this issue and we will update further as soon as we have more details regarding a resolution for this issue.

We are aware the Armory is not updating as fast as it usually does for some players. This issue is being investigated, and should we have further news, we will announce it here in this post. While we are not able to force an update manually, the following has worked for some players:

  • Reset your account password, and reload your profile.
  • Logout of the game properly, and log back in, instead of forcing the game to quit.

Again, we cannot guarantee that these suggestions will work for you, but it doesn’t hurt to try. Your patience and understanding is appreciated while we look into this.

Ticket Icon Disappears In-game:
We're aware of an issue where the ticket icon disappears in-game after submitting a ticket.

While we're working on a fix, remember you can always check the status of your ticket from the account management page:
