List of 2.3 known issues and bugs

Amanda Miller

A list of the current known issues since patch 2.3 arrived has just been posted on the forums by Hortus. It should definitely be read through before you post any "new" issues, although do note that the list does not include issues that are still being researched. Also, if you are bemoaning the plight of your class, just give this list a read-through; compared to the warp chasers, you're doing pretty well. In addition, it looks like it is not just hunter pets that are having pathing issues.
