pls fix Blizzard bug - Priest Inner Focus infinite sound loop

#1 » Post by Errorista » 09 Nov 2019 10:19

Hello! Just minor QoL thing I would like to improve on this server. I suggest fixing blizzard bug when Priest talent Inner Focus have annoying infinite sound until some spell is cast (https://truewow.org/bugs/view.php?id=2996). As it was bugged on Blizzard servers as well I was told to use forum suggestion instead of bugtracker report. Devs said it is not complicated to fix it so I hope it is just a formality here. Thank you for your time reading this.

I don't personally see a problem with this. Even though the bug does indeed appear to be Blizzlike, we can take such bugs on a case-by-case basis to see if it would be beneficial to the community to repair those unintended effects. As this one has no effect on gameplay mechanics, it seems innocuous to correct. Provided we find a suitable replacement sound file this could stop requiring the client-side change. If accepted this would likely be low priority for implementation, again because it doesn't affect gameplay ability at the moment. Any suggestions for a replacement sound ID?

Also, still looking for anyone else who may have feelings for or against this idea? Don't want to dictate the decision alone if anyone else feels differently.

As long as any fix for this is not used as a baseline for future suggestions regarding other blizzlike bugs, I see no reason to oppose this.
For example: "You fixed one blizzlike bug, why not fix the others too?"
This is an exception and should be treated as such.

French fries are like steaks, where the potato is the cow and gets cut up, like meat does, only on a smaller scale

That's a 2007 Retail video demonstrating a glitch that was promptly fixed.
Inner Focus was rendering all spells free of any mana cost without being consumed at all.
That being said, the video does give good idea of the infinite sound loop being discussed here.
