    Closed Beta Testing on May 26

    Closed Beta Testing on
    May 26


    by The Guild Wars 2 Team on May 22, 2015


    We’re pleased to announce the closed beta test for Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns™. If you obtained a portal to the Heart of Maguuma during the special event in Dry Top and the Silverwastes, you’ll receive an e-mail with all the details you’ll need to get started. Please ensure that you’ve signed up for our newsletter so that we can contact you! We’ll be randomly choosing a number of newsletter recipients for participation in the beta test as well.

    The upcoming closed beta will help us test the stability of our new PvE outpost-event content structure. Participants will be able to use a revenant—or any of the existing eight professions—to play a small amount of expansion story content, followed by two beta versions of outposts and their corresponding adventures in part of the Verdant Brink map. An early, partially completed version of the day/night cycle meta-event experience from Verdant Brink will also be available.

    Testing will begin on May 26, and will run in 2 hour blocks with breaks between each block. The schedule is as follows:

    • 11:30 a.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7) to 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7)
    • 3:30 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7) to 5:30 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7)
    • 7:30 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7) to 9:30 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7)

    This test is not under a nondisclosure agreement, and participants are welcome to stream and discuss their experiences. We hope to see you there!

    No portal for me, either, but I don't mind. I have a boatload of different games on my plate right now (GW2 being one of them) so it's not a big deal that I am missing out. Besides, I did get to participate in the original game's beta 3 years ago, so someone else getting a shot at a beta seems fair.

    So is it just for a day, or every day for the week, or wat?

    Sounds like you get the three two-hour blocks and that's it for this beta event.

    But it says it begins on may 26, so is it more than 1 day or did they just word it poorly?

    While I'm happy to have gotten in, the only thing I NEED to see is the Ranger elite spec, and sadly, elite specs won't be in this one. I have a Ranger and a Thief who I'm going to have to delete and reroll if the Druid ends up being any good, and they've both been put in stasis for a month now while this new info is (slowly) rolling out.

    This is just a glorified 6-hour stress test. Also you can only make a human, not a big deal, but for those who didn't get in, you're probably not missing very much. 'Cept for a kajillion human Revenants running around. God I hope Revenants aren't going to be as bad as Death Knights in WoW used to be (population-wise).

    (I know they will; it's inevitable.)

    Ugh I got to work, but I can be there for half of the 2nd test and the rest of the 3rd.
