A bug fix for a spell that increased players’ resistance to magic was implemented in the Burning Crusade. Blizzard has now confirmed it will be reverted back into its original form as intended.
Blizzard has released an explanation regarding the bug fix regarding spell resist in Burning Crusade Classic. The patch is scheduled to be released on May 16th, 2014. Read more in detail here: tbc known bugs.
We’ve looked through this carefully and feel that resistance are now working more as they did in the first Burning Crusade.
We discovered and resolved an error that prevented several skills that resisted particular mechanics (such as Unbreakable Will or Surefooted) from appropriately mixing with school-based resistance stats during the creation of patch 2.5.2 for Burning Crusade Classic. Because to the problem, resist chances in patch 2.5.1 differed somewhat from those in the original 2.4.3 Burning Crusade.
We looked at how the resist chance formula changed between patches 1.12.0 and 2.4.3 as part of this repair. This led us to find a number of significant alterations that had occurred during the creation of the original Burning Crusade. Changes to the sequence in which spell strikes and spell resistances are administered were among them. We implemented these changes in Burning Crusade Classic patch 2.5.2, and we’re now sure that our Burning Crusade Classic resist chance formula appropriately reflects the behavior of the original Burning Crusade patch 2.4.3.
We first missed several modifications as a consequence of the bugfix, but we have since found them. The following are two significant examples:
- Excess spell hit may no longer be utilized to nullify the benefits of abilities like Unbreakable Will, which resist certain mechanics.
- All other fundamental game mechanics and formulae are based on patch 2.4.3, which was established in patch 2.4.0 of the original Burning Crusade.
- In PvP, Rogue’s Cloak of Shadows now appropriately resists spells at 90%, rather than 80 percent.
- This was originally said to be 80% in the beta for the first Burning Crusade. Cloak of Shadows, on the other hand, received a 90 percent resist probability in PvP after a subsequent update to the resist formula during that Beta. Cloak of Shadows’ resistance was set at 90% when the first Burning Crusade was released, and this was not modified throughout the expansion.
We regret for the delay in getting back to you on this matter. We’re looking into these problem complaints as they come in, and we’re satisfied that the spell resist formula modifications have consistently pushed us closer to the original Burning Crusade.
The “burning crusade classic specs” is a bug that Blizzard has fixed. The change was made in patch 3.2.0, which went live on October 10th, 2009.
