I apparently had a token that let me boost to 110. It hasn't crashed over a couple hours of play with the graphics turned up to 8. I have -idea how to play though. This is completely different than the last time I played around WOTLK.

Blizzard is one of the only companies that have TCC exceptions (go check out /System/Library/Sandbox/TCC_Compatibility.bundle/Contents/Resources/AllowApplicationsList.plist) so it's safe to say they are on good terms with the big A.

Woof. Yes, the game is vastly different from 3.x. (and will be even more vastly different when 9.0 drops. Hey, maybe it'll be fixed by then).

Looks like I picked the right month to stop sniffing glu ... I mean, playing WoW. That is a serious bummer, though I imagine as devSin noted that WoW is one app that will drive some response from Intel (no idea what drives a response from Apple, but I doubt that game crashes are high on that list).

It was particularly amusing as the scenario required to unlock the majority of new content in 8.3 was impossible to complete because of the bug for many. Add the expected 'lol maclusers' responses on the usual fora for extra comedy value.

Right, so, Space Legolas.

The (lack of) particles isn't generally a huge deal for me as I rarely raid, and don't any M+ content. I do, however, have an alt who tanks occasionally, and then it can be issue (it's hard to avoid the fire if you can't see it).

I'm hoping you're right devSin, and that it is addressed soon. There's a lot of angry Mac users on the Blizzard fora.

Is there a way to quickly get into the affected BFA content?

That's a good point. No, not unless you a) get a free 120 character boost with a monthly sub (which you would if you pre-purchase the Shadowlands 9.0 expansion), and b) you still need to do a bunch of BFA pre-requisite questing to unlock 8.3 content (which is all soloable, but would likely take you a few days to work through).

That said, I was experiencing the issue on a solo Hellfire Citadel (Warlords of Draenor) runs, which are trivial to do with a base 120.
