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.

    So whats thats happened in the northern part of the map where the horde first landed? Hellscreams fist looks like its either been removed (thank god don't want his name tainting pandaria's landscape) or its just now a nameless hub, and a village has appeared where it use to be.

    Wish they fixed the choppy flapping animation on those dumb birds if they were going to re-use them again and again.

    Vengeance now requires Defensive Stance.
    It seems blizzard is afraid prot warriors will top meters with the 7k devastates we have now, if we are allowed to switch stances while not tanking. Fair and balanced. I guess the ability to kill a few mobs while leveling or questing as prot was too much to ask for. And why is not DK locked to blood presence if they want vengance?

    Not bad. I like the phoenixes. And the paladin changes are nice, I suppose.

    Good stuff. Good job on fixing all the class changes!

    They've said on numerous occasions over the years that they feel that rogue is the best-designed class in the game. So, they don't tweak it much because they consider it pretty much just right. It's the rest of the classes that they're constantly tweaking to try and get them into the same sweet spot as rogues.

    Ahh, Rune Strike is off the GCD again. /cheer
    I much prefer it this way, particularly with the new rune system. It ought to make rune generation a bit easier for tanks now.

    They DESTROYED SW: D. Well, under 20% health (down from 25% in Cata btw) it's extremly potent, for bosses... but for pvp it's useless indeed. Also you kinda NOT want to use it above 20% health, as it will only scratch the target, while raping yourself bad! (thinking of movement fights, where I would throw some sw:d around, replenishing my mana while doing "some" damage... now completly useless)
