Shadowlands PTR - Zombie Invasion Changes and Stress Test
Since we last covered it, the Zombie Invasion in Capital Cities has received a few changes:
  • Ghouls now take fall damage and falling higher than 10 feet will cause instant death.
  • Ghouls are now active for 60 seconds and are spawn capped to about 15 ghouls.
  • Ghouls can no longer attacks players and players can no longer attack ghouls unless they turn on War Mode.
  • A new buff "New Recruit" is now given to players that complete the New Starting Experience in Exile's Reach.

Thanks to reddit user Siggythenomad for sharing these changes! If you would like to test them out, Blizzard is going to have a stress test this Friday at 8:00 AM PDT / 5:00 PM CET.

Please make sure you select “Public Test Realm” in the Battle.net App, and log in at that time, and join Blizzard employees in Stormwind and Orgrimmar as we test the updates to the event that were made in this latest build.

Thereafter, please leave any feedback you have on the experience in this thread.

We’ll see you in Stormwind and Orgrimmar. Thank you!

    How is the event ruined? Turn on warmode and it'll act just like it should.

    This means pre-patch is either next Tuesday or the Tuesday after.

    Well, good way to ruin such a fun and unique event.

    Great changes! Copy/paste event I did 12 years ago I don't really feel I want to bother with again. They could have made this so much bigger than this nuisance, like making them invade properly like the Legion forces did pre-Legion, but on the other side it's good they just focus on getting Shadowlands ready instead.

    15 ghouls at a time, and they all need consent to attack? I guess King Terenas' warning was just him being overly cautious.

    Without its masters command the restless scourge will...wait till you activate PvP before attacking you.

    I believe it's only 15 player ghouls at one time.

    Most likely npc ghouls and it might be a per player cap.

    Where is the owner they are stinking up the place.

    Oh well no harm done they are just running around like fools.
