Blizzard has applied a hotfix for WoW Classic servers. This hotfix, among other things fixes a bug in the Dragonslayer world buff. We recently reported that players were able, via headshot, to cancel the buff by stopping NPCs associated with the buff. This will cancel the event, and the buff won't be awarded.
In a blue post, Blizzard stated that it was impossible to headbutt NPCs in the original World of Warcraft and cancel the event. The team is working to create a hotfix that more accurately reflects the correct behavior of NPCs in the original WoW.
Headbutt has stopped cancelling the event
As announced, the developers responded to the issue via hotfix. In an official bluepost (via Wowhead), the team stated that the use of Headbutt against the NPCs Supreme Leader Runthak and Major Mattingly "no longer stops Battlecry of the Dragonslayers being cast during their event dialog." Players can no longer intentionally prevent the buff by temporarily knocking out NPCs associated with the event as a rogue from the opposing faction.

- Spell animations can now be interrupted if there is a short pause between each spell. This will fix some issues with Tyrion's inability to offer quests.
