MMO-Champion - Mists of Pandaria Beta - Build 15781
Mists of Pandaria Beta - Build 15781
A new beta build will be deployed on beta realms soon. Our notes should now be mostly complete, so be sure to look over your classes' changes once again!

Raid Testing - Starting Soon
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
We plan to start Mists of Pandaria Beta raid testing this Friday, June 22. We'll begin testing with the 10 player Normal difficulty version of the Stone Guard in Mogu'shan Palace. Available testing times for testing will be posted soon. 25 player Normal difficulty testing should begin next week, with Raid Finder and Heroic difficulty testing to follow in the weeks ahead.

You must be level 90 to participate in the raid test, and level 90 character templates will not initially be available. We do have some new technology that automatically raises or lowers your items to the appropriate level for testing. So as long as you have a Mists of Pandaria quest or dungeon item in every slot, you'll be fine.

Note that player interface add-ons are disabled on the beta at this time while we work through some technical issues. They'll be available once again at some point in the future.

As always with raid testing on beta or public test realms, the schedule is subject to change or cancellation with very little warning. Server issues, build issues, newly discovered encounter, combat, or class bugs, and many other reasons could prevent testing. While I will endeavor to provide warning about future tests, this will also not always be possible. Whatever I do know, I'll post here in the Beta Dungeons forum as soon as possible.

I'm really looking forward to everyone's feedback (it really does matter!), and my thanks to everyone who's able to participate in the upcoming tests.

    Waiiit a second here.
    Holy paladin BUFFS? What's this world coming to?
    Funny enough, Obi Won told me that "these are not the buffs you are looking for". We've lost so much haste with the loss of DF and Judgments of the pure that the class feels almost unplayable.
    We do have some great spells, but everything seems to be a 2.4 second cast. Now I know it's all gear dependent, but I haven't seen huge upgrades in gear yet. Maybe it'll change after they open up raids...I do know a LOT of holy palys that are re-rolling due to the haste and mana nerfs we've been so graciously given.

    is it just me or do those phoenixs look like they have something on thier back... a saddle perhapes

    also: PET_BATTLE_TRAP_ERR_6 - Your enemy pet is not caputurable. wanna say its spelled Capturable lol

    im dumb and dont know how to interpret mmo-champion spell changes

    Blackout Kick (Windwalker) Kick with a blast of Chi energy, dealing (12 8 * (MainHand DPS + 50% of OffHand DPS + 7.1% of AP - 1)) to (12 8 * (MainHand DPS + 50% of OffHand DPS + 7.1% of AP + 1)) Physical damage.

    is that a nerf or a buff? does red = old numbers or new?
  1. Slowpoke is a Gamer's Avatar
    I'd be wary about the class changes. Things got split up without any reason for the split, and damage was nerfed for everyone. There may be some bugs here.

    Anyone else feel that the female Pandaren child model's eyes are just a bit too big? Almost creepy/clown-like...



    Not to mention D3 Templar based/reference achivements:

    Pandaria
    Exploration

    A Worthy Opponent (New) Defeat one of the powerful champions of the Pandarian races that wander the continent.
    Could We Find More Like That? (New) Defeat one of each type of Pandarian champion.
    Glorious! (New) Hunt down and defeat each and every one of the Pandarian champions.
    Heh, touche... I just hope they aren't as annoying (to complete) as the Templar is.

    are rogues in a good place in MoP? i haven't been paying too much attention but it seems since they haven't altered them like at all in the passed couple of months, i guess they're fine? they looked weak in the few streams i watched a while back.

    I have only one thing to say. If we do not get smelting ghost iron fixed I will start calling Blizz customer service and scream. I don't mean swear loudly, just scream.

    Hmm, no more Hellscream's Fist or Wayward Landing in the new Jade Forest map....
  1. Kirse's Avatar
    I'm really intrigued/excited by the Disc Priest changes (and priest changes overall). Disc is great live, but missing too many abilities in beta making it a little boring. The additions listed sound great, and I'm looking forward to seeing them Thanks Blizz

    wonder if the champions will be "rares" like the WOTLK/BC achievements or just Elites that roam that are not rare.
