WoW Classic Closed Beta Has Returned
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
Thanks to your help testing WoW Classic, we’ve fixed many additional reported bugs since the Beta ended last month. To really ensure that these fixes are all functioning as expected and prepare the smoothest possible launch in two weeks, we’ve just re-opened our closed beta realms for additional testing of WoW Classic.

All testers who previously had access to the closed beta are now able to log into those realms. Characters that were previously created on the beta test realms were removed, and level 40-character templates are now available. The level cap has been increased to 45. Characters in this range will find level-appropriate quests to explore in zones such as Stranglethorn Vale, Swamp of Sorrows, Dustwallow Marsh, and Desolace.

As before, please use the in-game Bug Report button to submit issues encountered while testing. If you need more text space to explain an issue you encountered, please take it to our WoW Classic Support and Bug Report forum, which is now open for new threads.

This final closed beta test will end on Friday, 16 August.

Thanks in advance to everyone who jumps in to test WoW Classic and help us prepare for its worldwide release on 27 August at 12:01 a.m. CEST!

    Trash beta for a trash game

    What about the 3 pre-made characters I made? They will stay right? Cause I made 3 and I can't make additional characters for this "new" test. And I don't wan't to lose the names/characters I made.

    Agreed. No amount of Beta testing will fix what is a fundamentally archaic, slow and broken game.

    I find it hilarious these Classic Zealots call BFA "broken" when Vanilla was a hundred times worse.

    And then people start complaining of bugs and how it should've "stayed in beta longer to get the rest of the bugs"?

    There will be bugs regardless. This is nothing more than a way to keep streamers streaming and generating hype in the wake of the servers not even able to handle name creation day.

    gotta defend the rotting husk that's left of his precious game, while taking a piss on what we know we'll enjoy. Sad right.

    Broken and difficult are two very different things.

    i never see classic players talk about BFA, but for some reason there are a lot of BFA players always commenting about classic.

    All I know is I did 1-10 undead priest on stress test this weekend. Every level felt like an accomplishment and I went through 2 levels grinding just getting my wand made.

    I did the same this on a live priest yesterday, took me under and hour and went so fast with so little effort it was boring to me.

    Everyone will have their preferences, but i prefer the work for it approach. *Don't tell my wife*

    You must be new here. It's all the bitching from Vanilla fans that Classic is happening in the first place.

    There's still "work for it" approach, it just doesn't apply as much to leveling and leveling only after so many years.

    Get excited about that? Knock yourself out. Others stopped finding leveling this journey of mystery upon getting their X(X)th alt to max level.

    Never underestimate just how delusional Classic flaggers are with their "This matters in Classic but has been REMOVED in Retail!!"-approach though. Apparently, we're literally prevented from meeting people, having fun and feeling rewarded all at the same time.

    BFA is like having sensory overload with a ton of instant gratification while Classic is more of a slog that actually feels rewarding once you manage to achieve something, be it a new abillity, gear or even new relationships.

    I don't hate BFA, I've played it quite a lot, but retail is just not for me anymore - not with classic released.

    I find it funny that you could like the piece of trash BFA is. It's damned loot pinata designed for the laziest of trolls. Enjoy your retail expac, and let those who want ot play Classic enjoy it. It's not for you, so stay the hell out of it
