Raid Testing Schedule - November 8th-12th
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

BOTH FACTIONS:
Testing is open for both factions. However, for some bosses, raid members will temporarily re-live events as the opposite faction using a story flashback.

Thursday, November 8th

Jadefire Masters - Mythic Battle of Dazar'alor
13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)
Conclave of the Chosen - Mythic Battle of Dazar'alor
14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)
Horde will experience this boss as if they were Alliance.

Friday, November 9th

Mekkatorque - Mythic Battle of Dazar'alor
13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)
Alliance will experience this boss as if they were Horde.
Grong - Mythic Battle of Dazar'alor
14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)
Normal Battle of Dazar'alor
16:00 PST (19:00 EST, 1:00 CET)

As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses 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.

Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
A: In Zuldazar, Boralus, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade III 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.)

Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players' effective level to 120 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.

Q: How long does testing last?
A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we're satisfied that we've received that information for a given boss, we'll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.

    I miss the old talent trees and being able to buy gear and reforge it and I miss resilience.

    Look no further than:
    LEVEL 110-111

    OLD = 831,450 - 717,000 = 114,450
    NEW = 831,000 - 537,730 = 293,270

    293,270 / 114,450 = 256% new vs old xp

    Maybe there is some added catchup continuum to account for the gap, but that's where the too good to be true is located - the % column is also misleading if comparing by level.
    I did notice this. They decided to siphon XP from 20-110 and just shove all of that shareholder-important gametime into that one level. At least BfA has a whole bunch of quests that I usually didn't do because I was maxed by the time I got here, so now you get to do more of those. And I think it's better to just do it in one level and be done with it instead of having them split this 300k XP over the rest of the levels - 110-111 is probably the easiest range to level in.
    Also there will be those daily incursions that are going to function like Legion Invasions catchup-wise. It's probably going to get a little faster on the whole.

    And if not, people will quickly notice how long it takes to get that first level and start complaining loudly in the forums. Maybe they'll get around to changing that next expansion.

    Kids these days
    old talents were useless trash lol the only reason we had more spells and abilities back then was because you had access to all specs abilities but while at the beginining you're like oh wow i have so much i can use once you learn you barely use any of that and use your main spells and abilities just like now lol. like im not using tank shit in fury and same with arms.....
