Some extra things to keep in mind before reporting:

Please read our current known issues sticky bearing in mind that we're concentrating primarily on issues specific to 4.3 changes and content. The problem you’ve encountered may already be listed below.

Please don't feel that you have to post about 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 regularly probably means that they're more important to you and thus a higher priority.

Please be sure to write a clear description of the issue with any information that you think may be helpful/relevant.

Commonly Reported Issues That Are Not Bugs.

There are many issues that are repeatedly reported in this forum that are not considered bugs and should not be posted here in this forum.

Please check this list before making a new post in this forum. Many issues that appear to be bugs are actually intended functionality or should be reported in other places.

1. Realms are down or crashing.
Example: Players cannot get past “Authenticating” or the Hyjal Realm is not currently online.

    Blizzard Technicians continually monitor all of our realms and work to resolve issues as quickly as possible. QA does not have information about realm status. Information regarding realm status can be viewed at the Service Status Forum: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/1028280

2. Exploits, Cheats and Hacks.
Example: Several players are using cheats to win PVP.

3. Forum Avatar levels and guilds do not match in-game characters.
Example: In-game character is level 70, forum avatar is level 63.

    The Forum information is not updated in real time, it can often take weeks before avatar information is updated. You can read more information about this issue here: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/blog/1400553

4. Armory Information is incorrect/incomplete/out of date.
Example: The Armory page does not list a characters correct guild.

    Errors in Armory information should be reported via e-mail at WoWArmory@blizzard.com.

5. “Impossible” simultaneous actions.
Examples: Rogue Vanish being broken by attacks, Two Mages polymorphing each other, Paladin Divine Shield being dispelled as it is cast.

    Because of the Client-Server nature of the game it is possible for two mutually exclusive actions to occur at the same time resulting in some unexpected behaviour. Although efforts are made to minimize these situations they will still happen on occasion.

6. NPCs and player pets attack stealthed players.
Example: A hunter sends its pet after a druid who then uses Prowl, the pet continues to chase and attack the druid after it has entered stealth.

    Stealth is not intended to be an escape mechanic, Vanish should be used to escape combat in these situations. If you feel this should be changed please post your feedback in the appropriate forum section.

7. No experience, loot or quest credit for mobs killed exclusively by pets or totems.
Example: A shaman uses Fire Nova Totem to kill several quest NPCs and gets no credit.

    This is an intended behaviour, a player must do damage to an NPC for it to give credit.

8. Guards in Capital Cities can see through Vanish.
Example: You are in an enemy city and have been spotted, using Vanish does not take you out of combat.

    Guards will be able to see through Vanish and continue pursuing you until you have either run out of range or have been killed. This applies for other classes as well when using abilities such as Feign Death and Sanctuary.

9. Bortega is male but has a female voice.

    Even though Bortega is a male orc, when you speak to the NPC the audio is female. This is actually intended and the NPC's original gossip text explained the reason.
    No, you aren't hearing things. I actually do have the voice of a young orc woman. But you listen here, [gender], time travel does strange things to a body. By the way, it's 250 years.
