Here's a list of patch 4.01 bugs that I have been experiencing and compiling. Some of them are driving me crazy while others are merely small annoyances. Either way, I don't understand why they were introduced with the last patch and I just wish they'd get fixed already. I really hope they're not here to stay.
Missing Transmute: Ametrine. For some reason, this spell has gone missing. I didn't learn it before the patch and the trainer doesn't have it after the patch. I don't know why this happened but by the time it will be fixed, we'll all be in Cataclysm and it will be too late anyway.
Missing glyphs. Glyphs such as Glyph of Mage Armor have also disappeared. Why? No one knows. I don't personally use that glyph or others like it but this is pretty serious for those who use them.
Consolidate buffs option is screwed up. Under Options > Interface > Buffs and Debuffs there's an option called Consolidate Buffs. I keep this one unchecked because I like to see all my buffs at all time. From time to time, my buffs become consolidated on their own, quite randomly. This seems to be triggered more often when joining a new group. Going and checking/unchecking the option will fix it. It's annoying to have to do this every time. Fix it Blizzard, dammit.
The new raid frames which replace character portraits are nice but occasionally and randomly their size gets reset to a default (small).
My tracking options get reset every time I log in.
The minimap zoom gets reset on some characters, but not others.
Sometimes when I die in an instance and I click the release button I find myself in the graveyard, alive but with very little health left, something like 1%. While it seems nice at first glance, it's extremely annoying because I can't rejoin the group due to having to run back to the dungeon through a lot of hostile territory.
The inspect option doesn't work in dungeons. I like inspecting people's equipment and talents but thanks to this stupid bug (or is it a feature???) now I can't.
Sometimes when I dismount my character is stuck in a perpetual running-in-place animation. It's annoying because it's distracting. I can't fix it until I log off.
The drake mounts glide continually instead of flapping their wings occasionally. This one is a very documented bug and I've heard many people complain about it. It's the least annoying bug to me but still... At least I've seen confirmation that they'll fix it soon.
So have you found any annoying bugs that I haven't covered here? How are you coping with them? Don't you just love patches which break perfectly functioning features?
