Access to 5.0.1 PTR and Mists of Pandaria Beta
Patch 5.0.1 is right around the corner on test realms! It also means that the release of MoP isn't too far either.

We will soon begin public testing of patch 5.0.1 of World of Warcraft, a patch that will precede the Mists of Pandaria release, and includes many features and functions that are new to the game.

We encourage all players who wish to test patch 5.0.1 with us to take careful note of the following:

  • It will not be possible to access the 5.0.1 PTR realms with a game account that accesses the Mists of Pandaria Beta.
  • If a game account has been flagged with a Mists of Pandaria Beta license, it can only be used to enter Beta realms.
  • This limitation is on each World of Warcraft license, and is not Battle.net account-based.
  • While testing 5.0.1, players will not be able to access zones or content that is a part of the Mists of Pandaria expansion.

Thank you for your continued support of our testing and tuning process. We look forward to seeing you in-game.

    If by 'for Christmas' you mean 'late August/early September', I would agree with you. Because...it'll be out before Christmas.

    I don't even know why people would be upset by this. I'll get to try out the Systems patch when it goes live, until then, I'll keep testing raid bosses and such in beta. I think I win that fight? ::shrugs::

    Why would you even want there as a beta player? You have all those + crapload of other stuff on beta. Why do people just WANT EVERYTHING FOR THEMSELVES even if it's a downgrade?

    Bearing in the beta has only been running for 3 months and 11 days, I doubt the ptr to test 2 weeks of content is going to be 3 months long.

    Right around the corner? They already announced the MoP cinematic was being unveiled past mid-August.

    You can't test it in the beta, as in the beta they don't give out random faction and race changes. :P
