Raid Testing Schedule - April 17

On Friday, April 17, we will begin our Hellfire Citadel raid testing with one Heroic encounter: the Iron Reaver. As this is the very first raid test of this PTR cycle, it is quite possible that there will be technical or gameplay issues that disrupt the testing. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

Remember that Heroic difficulty scales for any group size between 10 and 30 players, so feel free to assemble and bring a group of any size within that range. Our general plan is to test every encounter on Heroic difficulty first, and then test sections of the raid on Normal and Raid Finder, alongside targeted Mythic tests.

Each encounter should be available at approximately the listed times below on all PTR servers.

Friday, April 17
Iron Reaver - Heroic Hellfire Citadel
14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)

As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a beta environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the boss being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.

Important Testing Notes

Q: How do I get into the raid zone?

A: In Stormwind, Orgrimmar, and your garrison, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.) You can also teleport to Tanaan and just walk in the standard entrance.

    Felblood!.....so all the savage blood I collected gettgin ready for 6.2 is now useless!! thanks a lot!!! FFS!
  1. Xentronium's Avatar
    So Felblood is the new crafting material. Just need info on new token upgrades, if any, and if savage bloods are being replaced with fels.

    Updates answered my question. Two new tiers? Mighty Essence - 30 Fels for 690 weapon, 700 armor. Savage Essence -30 Fels for 705/715.

    It's almost as if you could have learned from, oh, every single previous xpac that they change things between tiers. Did you carefully stack T17 raid tokens to be able to disappoint yourself when T18 has a new bonus roll currency too?
  1. Chickat's Avatar
    Savage blood will still be useful, because you need it to craft the first 4 tiers of gear to get to tier 5 or 6

    - - - Updated - - -

    Though, it will probably be a lot cheaper, but thats a good thing. I hope beasts in Tanaan will drop savage blood or something, because if you are farming just for Felblood, no one will ever have savage making the prices skyrocket. Just thought of that. Hopefully blood will drop from beasts or skinning.

    Raid tokens are different and I would fully expect teem to change so that example doesn't realyl work. But when the first 4 stages of crafting have been one item from "tough" elites, why change it for the last upgrade?

    Because it always happens, there's always been a new crafting reagent for every new tier. The most recent was MoP, which had a different crafting reagant every tier, if you've forgotten. HM and BRF are both Tier 17 and the crafted items appropriate for that use Savage Blood. Hellfire Citadel is tier 18, so it's felblood. If there's a tier 19 in WoD, it'll be Shadowblood, or Iron Blood or whatever. This isn't a new thing. WoTLK had Frozen Orb, Runed Orb, Crusader Orb and Primordial Saronite. Cataclysm had some stuff with Essence of Destruction being the final one. Mists was Primal Spirit/Blood Spirit for Preraid/T1, Haunting Spirit for T2 and Spirit of War/Balanced Trillium for T3.

    So happy they're reverting the monk changes. It just looked like the class would feel extremely crappy outside of tigereye brew.
  1. BagramDeus's Avatar
    TBH, they should have made a new base gear that would be able to be upgraded with the new fel blood infused items, instead of making us having to get 2k (exaggeration) crafting mats
