BFA Launch Testing This Week

We intend to start at 2:00 p.m. PDT on Tuesday, July 3 with the availability of the Teldrassil scenario followed by the battle for Lordaeron on a new Beta realm called “Launch Test”. Testers will be able to copy your live characters to that realm, and then experience the full storyline (minus a few cut-scene spoilers that we’re saving for later).

We’ll then use the same realm, starting on Thursday, to test the subsequent events of the actual launch of Battle for Azeroth. Testers will need to have completed the Lordaeron scenario before Thursday to participate in this test.

On Thursday, July 5 at 2:00 p.m. PDT, we will test of the Battle for Azeroth launch on the “Launch Test” Beta realm. At that time, all testers who have completed the Lordaeron experience will receive your first quest inviting you into the expansion, and we ask that you spend the next 30 to 60 minutes playing through the content provided.

One of the purposes these tests is to check for bottleneck issues where many players are competing for the same resources. We will also be monitoring for server performance issues under high, concentrated demand. This will help us ensure smooth launches.

Thank you very much for your participation!

Battle for Azeroth Beta - Build 26970
Build 26970 will be deployed to the Beta realms soon. The PTR build is flagged as release.

    They're lowering the level requirement for class hall mounts. Probably a good decision to not force people through the Broken Shore quest line.

    This is probably just some update on the old artifact weapon effect. Possibly keeping Hati around even with a de-powered artifact?

    It would be a HUGE thing to suddenly keep double pet around for BM hunter in BFA, not something they would do at this point in the Beta. Too close to release for fundamental changes.

    Looks like the water elemental is less buff now. Dude was probably a sports-drink before.
    Also, pretty nice to see the requirements for order-hall mounts being changed. Now I can focus on the order-hall quests and getting alts to max for the Mage Tower.
