    Mists of Pandaria Beta - Build 15781

    Mists of Pandaria Beta - Build 15781
    A new beta build will be deployed on beta realms soon. Our notes should now be mostly complete, so be sure to look over your classes' changes once again!

    Raid Testing - Starting Soon
    Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
    We plan to start Mists of Pandaria Beta raid testing this Friday, June 22. We'll begin testing with the 10 player Normal difficulty version of the Stone Guard in Mogu'shan Palace. Available testing times for testing will be posted soon. 25 player Normal difficulty testing should begin next week, with Raid Finder and Heroic difficulty testing to follow in the weeks ahead.

    You must be level 90 to participate in the raid test, and level 90 character templates will not initially be available. We do have some new technology that automatically raises or lowers your items to the appropriate level for testing. So as long as you have a Mists of Pandaria quest or dungeon item in every slot, you'll be fine.

    Note that player interface add-ons are disabled on the beta at this time while we work through some technical issues. They'll be available once again at some point in the future.

    As always with raid testing on beta or public test realms, the schedule is subject to change or cancellation with very little warning. Server issues, build issues, newly discovered encounter, combat, or class bugs, and many other reasons could prevent testing. While I will endeavor to provide warning about future tests, this will also not always be possible. Whatever I do know, I'll post here in the Beta Dungeons forum as soon as possible.

    I'm really looking forward to everyone's feedback (it really does matter!), and my thanks to everyone who's able to participate in the upcoming tests.

    Don't care if that skeleton is recycled, that phoenix looks awesome. Also, seems Pandaren girls now have a model!

    I require this Phoenix! Where might I acquire it?

    Phoenix is approving for a reused skele. Love it! Want the blueish red one.

    Also, Clemency just got a hell of a lot better. Anyone want to say QQ from Melee with double Hand of Protection in PvP? LOL

    I wouldn't expect "very close" until 2 weeks into raid testing.... even then it could take a while.

    I've heard rumours that MoP will be released without raids, and they will be put in after 1-2 weeks. Just rumors, but that can make the PTR phase come quicker.

    Easier then you might think.

    You see before the patch servers server push a patch live to the beta realms it gets uploaded to the CDN servers first. Blizzard has access to three of those and always uses a very predictable path to all the patch files. For new builds its the same URLs except with a different build number.

    So if you know the places the files are uploaded and their names you can figure out the URL for a new build you just gotta know the new build number.

    CDN servers will give the standard reply of "File not found" as a string for a file that's not there.

    There are several ways of finding out a new build number from the slightly complex of querying the patch server in a special way to the dumber and slower way of simply continually downloading new build numbers until you get valid patch files.

    So now you have a set of new patch files.

    From there you just toss it to some automated analysis tools to rip the patch apart and give you all the data you need for a post. You take that data and throw it at something that formats it nicely for a post , proof read it then post it.

    That's in essentially how it's done in a simplified fashion
