  • #422 - Dearest $n, I look back upon our adventures together as if they happened yesterday. Several of my admirers informed me that you looked rather... sullen... when last we met. While I see no reason for such behavior when you had the pleasure of working with the world-renowned Johnny Awesome, I did feel a twang of... what was it... pity? Being as such, I felt it appropriate to send you this tip as a token of my appreciation for your efforts. Do people still tip? Listen, if people do NOT still tip, please return all attachments to me at once. I'm not made of money, you know. -Johnny along with a small amount of coin to cover my shipping costs. -Johnny

However, I must come clean - I have not been completely honest with you. The events which first brought you here were orchestrated - I knew you were the only one that could save the post office from an undue end. I cannot rely on you forever - the mail must be able to operate without your aid. I must ask you to help me orchestrate once more to guide more into these stamped halls to give me aid. Take the attached message and send it to someone you deem worthy to carry the torch forward. I've included a whistle to call Katy to your side should you need her aid. I trust you to the end. - The Postmaster
  • #427 (New) - $n, In your absence, things at the office have gone quite awry. There is mail everywhere - and I do mean everywhere! Katy and I will never sort all of this in a timely manner without your aid. I am afraid I must ask you to return to the office at once. We have a job to do. - The Postmaster

We Need You on the 7.3.5 Public Test Realm!

We need your help! Create a new character on the Public Test Realm (PTR), level as far as you can, and send us your detailed feedback. By leveling through the content and sharing your thoughts with us, you will have a direct impact on improving the new dynamic leveling experience.

We Need You!
  • What You Want: To help make World of Warcraft a satisfying and seamless world to level through.
  • What We Want: Your feedback—the good, the bad, and the ugly—so we can iron out the wrinkles.
  • How We Do This: Create a new character on the PTR, level up as far as you can, and send us your considered, original opinion on the overhauled leveling experience.

The Big Ask
As you may have heard, we are significantly overhauling the leveling experience in World of Warcraft to make life more interesting for all the lower-level characters out there. Leveling zones from 1–100 will dynamically scale to your character’s level for a certain range, so you can spend longer in the places you love and experience more of your favorite quest lines and stories as you travel through Azeroth.

This is where you come in. On the 7.3.5 PTR, we want you to level a character, then give us your detailed, original feedback on the changes: zones, dungeons, quests, and the entire end-to-end experience in the zones you love and at the pace you enjoy. Share your thoughts on the experience, warts and all, and give us valuable insight that will change the game for the better.

Just the Facts
  • You will need to access the PTR build for Patch 7.3.5 (see below on how to do just that).
  • Level up over the course of the 7.3.5 PTR and provide detailed feedback on the experience. Examples could include:
    • Specific zones you played, and what level you were when arriving and moving on
    • Pick a leveling range to tell us about
    • Tell us which zones you chose and why, and what dungeons you completed
    • Your thoughts on the difficulty, pacing (including any specific quests or areas you had trouble with), and rewards
    • You can also let us know about any bugs you find: big, small, and downright squishy
  • We would also like to know:
    • Class
    • Specialization
    • The bug was annoying” is nowhere near as helpful as “When I arrived in Hellfire Peninsula at level 58 the quests were grayed out.”
    • (In other words: the more detail you give us, the better you will help us make the game!)

How to Create a PTR Account:
  • Log in to Blizzard Account Management.
  • Select your World of Warcraft account.
  • Select Additional Services, then click Public Test Realm.
  • Click History/Status to create your PTR account.

Planning Ahead
Be sure to log in to your Blizzard account and select the Public Test Realm (PTR) in Game Accounts.

  • Download the PTR client from within the Blizzard Battle.net desktop app.
  • Log in to any of the available Test Servers.
  • Create a new level 1 character.

Forgive Us Our Maintenance
Champions take note! We plan to leave the PTR up throughout the holidays, but as with any test phase there may be short periods of downtime to apply changes, perform maintenance, and other trickier things that pop up. If the PTR isn’t available for any length of time, please know we appreciate your patience, good humor, and participation. We are working hard behind the scenes to keep everything on an even keel.

Dynamic Leveling Feedback: 7.3.5 PTR forum


Thank you, we truly appreciate the feedback you give and look forward to all you have to share with us. See you in Azeroth!

    Blizz, please give us the first 4 allied races in 7.3.5 (as a pre-order bonus). This would be a great way to keep players interested in the game, while waiting for BfA. Releasing them in 8.0 would be stupid, as most people would rather do the BfA content than to reroll.

    I actually legitimately love the direction Blizzard is taking at the moment. WoW has felt revitalised a lot for me in Legion and they seem to be moving forward in amazing ways.

    I think WoD was really a wake up call to them and it feels like the guys at the top have really kicked the team into gear. Which makes sense since after they hired so many new people in WoD they would all finally be getting comfortable with the Engine.

    I'm pretty sure the 4 Allied Races we are seeing will be the pre-order bonuses, that's the only logical reason why they would be included in 7.3.5, and why we haven't seen even a glimpse of Zandalari or Dark Iron Dwarves yet. Not to mention, the rewards for their racial armor are given at level 110.

    Skybox for the Lightforged Vindicaar map, probably related to Lightforged subrace stuff.

    everyone is asking for Allied race.. but did you forget you wont be able to play them till you unlock them (that is in BFA) .. so asking for them sooner is sorta pointless

    I vaguely remember something about an "A Team" and a "B Team", where the "B Team" took over development of WoW, while the "A Team" (formerly assigned to WoW) moved to a new IP. Not sure if this applies anymore, or when I first heard it, but I wonder if personnel have been moved around again.

    I'm envious that you managed to enjoy STD.

    Is this the first time Blizzard has directly asked for help with the PTR? I'm not recalling them ever doing that before.
