Just to be clear, this may have existed long ago, but this is a NEW bug in the sense that a month or so ago everything was working fine. It only started happening in the past few weeks, so some recent update triggered this bug.

Well, how often did these divide-by-zero crashes occur? It couldn't have been every time the bug occurred, since people simply didn't get crashes anywhere nearly as often as this bug is happening in raids.

Prodigy's the one that has looked into this. I'm just relaying the information I have.

Anyway, allowing units to have more than 64 auras apparently breaks some group/party packet. So malformed packets are sent to the client and that ends up crashing some addons or the client itself on some cases. From what I know, it was happening often at Wintergrasp.

well.... whom I have to buy a beer to get the fix for this shit :D

Today in ICC I was playing without RIP for like 90% of time, only luck is I have "feral rotation " memorized for the first minute or so, so there wasnt problem with my dps, but .... later when I dont get CPs in time or after moves / changing targets or so .... its impossible to manage that dots and play this game.

Seriously ... I ll send 5 cans of beer ( 5 kinds of Slovak beer, yea we have awesome beer ) to the person who will fix this ... and I dont care from where you are. I promise you will get it !
