General Information

5.0.4 Survival Guide:

    Account-wide Mounts, Pets, and Achievements
It’s finally here, and you’ll be able to enjoy just about every mount and pet you own on any character, and any license, under a single account. You can also work on a wide variety of Achievements from multiple characters. Please be aware of the rules and guidelines we’ve just posted for how you can coalesce your account-wide pets and mounts smoothly and safely.

*To see all of your achievements, pets, and mounts, you’ll want to log into every character at least once.
Known Issues

Master Loot - Assigning Loot
    In a raid, Master Looters cannot assign loot to characters in groups other than Group 1. To assign loot to a player in your raid, move them and the Master Looter to Group 1. The Master Looter can then assign loot after reopening the loot window.

    Note: If you cannot resolve the issue with the above steps and need assistance from Customer Support, please include the following text (with brackets) in your ticket: [distribute]

Master Looter Promotion
    In a raid, the Raid Leader cannot promote himself to Master Looter after promoting a character in a group other than Group 1. To promote himself, the Raid Leader must first promote any other character in Group 1 to Master Looter.

Requires Artisan Riding Skill
    A “requires artisan riding skill” error will appear when a character does not have the correct specialty flying skill. Characters who receive this error should check that their riding specialization is correct for the area in which they are attempting to fly.

  • Azeroth: Flight Master’s License
  • Northrend: Cold Weather Flying

Inscription Ink Cost Displaying Incorrectly
    Inks sold by Inscription Supplies vendors will appear to cost Ink of Dreams. These inks can still be purchased normally with Blackfallow Ink.

Cage Pet
    Right-clicking on a pet in the Pet Journal and selecting Cage Pet does nothing at this time. The cage pet functionality will become available after Mists of Pandaria launches.

Profession Recipe Duplication
    When characters travel into a Cross-Realm Zone, recipes in their profession window will appear duplicated. Logging out and then back into the game will cause the recipe list to appear normally.

PvP Capture Bar Does Not Appear
    The PvP capture bar does not appear in certain areas such as Wintergrasp, Grizzly Hills, and Tol Barad. Objectives can still be captured normally. However there is no visual indicator of capture progress.

Mac OS X
    The Mac OS X client will lock up if it is closed with the Close Window button in the upper left during character creation.
