17 Feb Ending Support for Windows XP and Vista Starting later this year, we will begin the process of ending support for Windows XP and Windows Vista in World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III, Hearthstone, and Heroes of the Storm. Microsoft ceased mainstream support for these versions of Windows in 2009 and 2012, respectively, but since a decent portion of our audience was still using them at the time, we continued supporting them. However, there have been three major Windows releases since Vista, and at this point, the vast majority of our audience has upgraded to one of the newer versions. After these older operating systems are no longer supported, the games will not run on them, so we encourage any players who are still using one of the older OSes to upgrade to a newer version. We’ll be rolling out this change on a staggered schedule, and will post further notices as we get closer to making the change for each game.Radathryl0 17 Feb
05 Aug Error #132 after Windows 10 Anniversary Update We have been seeing reports with World of Warcraft crashing with Error #132 after updating Windows 10 to the Anniversary update that came out on the 2nd of August. Many of these crashes look to be caused by the Game DVR in Windows 10 being enabled. Please try the steps below to disable it: Search for "Xbox" and open the Xbox app (You will need to log into your Microsoft Account). Once open, click on the settings option on the left (Cog Wheel). Click the slider for the game DVR to turn if off. If disabling the game DVR does not resolve the issue, please also ensure that your graphics drivers are up to date: NVIDIA video cards AMD video cards Intel video cards After that, if you're still experiencing Error #132 crashes please create a new post with a DxDiag attached or contact customer support.

17 Feb 2015 Legion 7.1.5. - Common Issues [08.02.] ★ Patch Notes (US) ★ Known Issues List ★ Technical Issues & Fixes ★ Hotfixes ★ Please follow @BlizzardCSEU_EN for current service status. Welcome to Patch 7.1.5! If you experience issues when logging in after the latest patch, reset your user interface and remove all addons! Here's what you are contacting us about the most right now: Dangerous Love - Achievement Not Granted KNOWN ISSUE: We are aware that the Dangerous Love achievement may not be granted after completing the required quests. The issue is being worked on but please note that Customer Support will not be able to grant this achievement. Characters missing after transfer KNOWN ISSUE: Characters who have recently used a paid transfer may be missing from both the source as well as the target realm. The issue can be self-resolved by creating a new character on the target realm to refresh the character list. Quest: No credit for killing Viz'aduum in "The Tower of Power" WORKING AS INTENDED: Players do not receive quest credit for killing Viz'aduum if they have destroyed the Head of Thar'zul. Doing so does not remove the quest from your log, but it can no longer be completed. Quest: "Into the Nightmare" unable to complete after deleting item WORKING AS INTENDED: Emerald Nightmare order hall quests cannot be completed if a player has accidentally deleted the questgiver item. This is an intentional mechanic to avoid potential problems with the item. Quest: "Touch of a Titan" - Essences of Aman'thul may not get converted KNOWN ISSUE: Essence of Aman'thul that is not in the player's inventory at the time the quest is picked up does not get converted into its quest version. For example, any Essence retrieved from the mailbox (as sent by killing a boss in Suramar when your inventory is full) will not count towards the quest goal. Please report any additional suspected bugs using the “Submit Bug” option in the ingame support portalNatryndon1 17 Feb 2015

12h Possible BUG in app authentication So I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but so far I haven't found a Bug report subforum, so I'll just ask here and try to keep it as short and straight forward as possible. app lets me log in even if I misstype my password, but only if the string I type contains the correct password; Let's pretend that "correctpassword" is my password (the following strings DO NOT contain my actual password, they're just examples): Typing "correctpassword" will let me login. Typing "wrongpassword" will obviously NOT let me login. Typing "correctpassword123" will let me login, even though it's not my password!. Yeah, sure, it contains it, but it's not it!. Is this the intended behaviour of the app? EDIT (additional info): - I have a authenticator (App doesn't ask me because I already allowed it). - It does not happen on the website. - It does not happen on my other bnet account (which hasn't authenticator). Kind regards,Crausser1 12h
13h "You haven't collected this appearance" bug Hi, last month i installed an addon which tracks transmog, however i later uninstalled the addon. But now theres a problem, every new gear piece i get regardless of armor type it says "You haven't collected this appearance". If i loot a plate item which i haven't collected as transmog on my paladin it says that regardless if i can equip it or not. This makes it hard to see what new gear i can equip and not just what my alts can. I have tried to install the addon again and disable all settings, but that did nothing. Scan and repair also didn't work. Any help would be really appreciated.Wolfery2 13h

15h Game Freezes for about 1-5 seconds Hi there. My game keeps freezing/stop responding from time to time ( kinda frequently ) for about 1-5 seconds and it´s starting to drive me absolute crazy! Doing a BG, freeze, dead. Doing a raid, freeze, dead because of a mechanic, kicked from the raid, I think you get the point? Anyone with similar problems or some sort of fix to this?Hyporah5 15h
16h Can I install from the Legion disc? Hello, I had to replace my hard drive recently and I need to redownload/reinstall the game. I'd like my download to be as small as possible. Does the retail disc version of Legion contain actual install data (to help mitigate the download), or does it just install the launcher and force you to download the full 40gb? A simple answer would be much appreciated.Kormag4 16h
16h Long loading times since legion Heya, Ever since legion, I've experienced very long loading times. It's not just the loading screen either, after zoning in to say dalaran, the different forms won't load for a minute or so on my druid (shifting into the form earns their speed bonuses, but still displays the normal character). Anyone experienced the same, knows a cause/fix/whatever? ThanksKéày1066 16h
22h Error WoW51900319 Like the title said, me and my brother we are experiencing this error about 20-30 min intervals, disconnecting us with no apparent reason, even in other games, in Overwatch for example, i experiencied the same disconnection. I did the wtf, cache and interface cleaning, and reinstalling the client, drivers are up to date, same as almost... everything.Kirathael1 22h

22h M'uru bugged, doesn't spawn in SP (BC) Hiya, I am sorry if this is in the wrong forum section, I can't think of anywhere else to put it. This section explains the situation the best. Basically, I was in Sunwell Platueue and when I get to M'uru, he never spawns, it's completely bugged. Therefore I can never get to Kil'jaeden because there is a wall preventing me from going to him. I need to kill M'uru to get to KJ. Is there a fix to this? Seems other people have been through this bug, but no one knows what the fix is, M'uru either spawns or doesn't, it's random. Will this ever be fixed?Saturnbeat3 22h

1d Issues starting and running the game since 16/03 Hi there, Ever since yesterday morning I've been experiencing crashes and screen freezes randomly during the game, or even when it's not fully booted yet and sometimes in the app as well. I've tried the standard stuff: - let the updat download fully - reboot (pc and game) - update add-ons - delete add-ons - delete cache folders etc. - ran repairs So far nothing has worked and I;m getting a bit fed up because I can't do anything. Anyone that can help?Valkyli4 1d
1d Hellfire Citadel portals problem The portals inside Hellfire Citadel don't work sometimes. Last time the portal that you have to take after you kill Gorefiend it didn't work. The portal that takes you to Mannaroth sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. But the portal that takes you to Archimonde it never ever worked for me, there has to be warlock to summ me every time. Even the portal from the beginning of the raid sometimes it works some times it doesn't. What is going on ? How do i fix this annoying thing. In game ticket didn't do a thing, no answer.Volvoxaureus2 1d

1d Outdated Beginner's Guide PDF So.. Anybody noticed that the Beginner's Guide (can be found on > is little bit outdated ? Imagine you are new to WoW, and you are about to check that guide out to know what's going on, and u realize, that there aren't 2 classes... Monk / Demon Hunter... Monk was available when the Pandaren comes out, so why Pandaren race is there, but not Monk?Shadowhoe1 1d
1d Input lag Hi so simply putting it is going to be hard but I'll try First my specs: Alienware laptop: 16gb ram 880m video card i7-4710mq 8core 2.5ghz Windows 10 64-bit My problem is simple its input lag but where its coming from I have no idea. I have good internet connection with ~30ms+ my laptop specs are decent as well I don't run the highest settings in game or anything. Some noticeable and weird things I noticed when dealing with this input lag is that it basically disappears when I have big haste so when I pop crusader and my haste becomes huge I don't experience it but when my haste goes back to normal it appears once again and sometimes I have to wait almost up to half a second before my other global cd starts it just gets stuck on it and creates a delay between spells. Sometimes disabling and enabling "optimize network speed" option makes it go away or makes it become less annoying but usually its still there. I've tried reinstalling windows, wow removing all addons... Playing on cable does reduce it and sometimes makes it go away completely on wifi it tends to be more strong and more noticeable so I'm open to any suggestions you might have on how to understand where my problem lies? Is it my hardware? Internet? Jus wow things? Any suggestions of how to fix it are welcome Ill try anything.Diksypixy2 1d
1d Unable to connect - error: BLZ51901001 Getting this error when I get to the login screen of WoW itself. I haven't seen this ever before.

I already flushed my DNS, disabled my firewall and tried plenty of other things to make it work, but so far no luck. Also searched at your forums, but the things I found and tried, didnt help at all.

2d Unleashed Monstrosities Bug(?) I was online the other day, and wanted to check my progress on the Unleashed Monstrosities achievement. Upon doing so, I realized that I didn't have credit for Withered J'im. Except I've killed him three times already. My profile history does not unfortunately go back far enough to display this, but I killed him once the last time he was available, and twice the first time (because my 1st attempt didn't give me kill credit). I'm not sure if this a bug with the boss, or with the achievement itself...but any insight on it would be appreciated.Berserkfury6 2d

2d Issues with the game Having issues with random pixels appearing on screen and in wow i have black lines tearing up the screen,it happened all of a sudden while questing,PC is new 2 weeks old Spec details are Operating System Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview 64-bit CPU Intel Core i5 @ 3.40GHz Kaby Lake 14nm Technology RAM 8.00GB Single-Channel Unknown @ 1066MHz (15-15-15-36) Motherboard ASRock Z170 Gaming K4 (CPUSocket) Graphics S24D300 (1920x1080@60Hz) 4096MB ATI Radeon RX 470 Graphics (MSI) Storage 223GB GOODRAM (SSD) 33 °C 465GB Seagate ST3500413AS (SATA) Dont really know what to do had some news that AMD cards are problematic but not to this extend,i even type letter and random pixel appear on my screenArchive4 2d

2d Siege of Orgrimmar(Mythic) Lockout problem I was going to do Siege of Orgrimmar(mythic) on my warrior the other day so I joined a group running it, apperantly they had already killed 2/14 bosses so I decided to leave and do it from the start. So I left the group while they still hadn't progressed to kill another boss and hearthed out of there. Then 3 hours later I decided to go do Siege of Orgrimmar(Mythic) but as soon as I got into the raid, a message box popped up in the middle of the screen saying something along the lines of "14/14 bosses killed". And obviously my reaction would be "WTF?!?!??!?!?!!" Since I have no clue how this could have happened, noting that A; I was not apart of the raid killing the bosses, and B; I wasn't even zoned into the instance. So I guess I just randomly lost a week of lockout out of pure BS. Now, any suggestion of what might have caused this so that it doesn't ever happen again...? ThanksStache7 2d
2d Loading screen with white/blue square and red bar Hi there, I've tried to sort it out but nothing seems to work. I've read other topics concerning this, but none of them seem to provide a solution to this. Since when legion prepatch hit, I've been getting loading screen with a blue or white square in the top right of the screen and a red loading bar. Rest is black. Here's the screenshot I've tried running the repair from battlenet, but after scanning for a good 15min nothing happened. I tried upgrading my GT970 drivers to the latest 372, still nothing happened. Same problem. I've gone through deleting cache (you always suggest this, even though it never solved a single problem for me), but naturally nothing happened. What am I supposed to do? The loading screen is normal in the first second, then turns to white square/red bar, then turns normal again. So well, the loading screen picture does exist, but I don't get why this happens. And no, do not suggest to reinstall the game. I'm not going to reinstall 50gb of stuff.Schizoid9 2d

2d Performance issues For some time now WoW has been really hard on my computer for some reason. My computer barely makes any sound usually but when I've had WoW up and running for a bit it sounds like all my fans are in full panic mode. A few times a day while playing WoW my monitors go black for two or three seconds and then flash before "resetting" everything. If I was streaming something the connection would be lost, the battlenet app would be up but not functioning and all my taskbar icons would go away and then automatically be replaced. For some reason WoW itself would be fine. I have gotten a BSOD twice when this happens. I don't really notice any fps drops and I have !@#$ internet so lag is already expected. I just don't know why WoW is so much harder on my pc than every other game.Polyzor1 2d
