    Castle Nathria Raid Testing Schedule, AQ40 Cleared, WoW Patch Hotfixes - August 4

    Castle Nathria Raid Testing Schedule - August 6th & 7th

    Thursday, August 6th

    Artificer Xy’mox - Heroic Castle Nathria
    13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)

    Sire Denathrius - Heroic Castle Nathria
    14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)

    Friday, August 7th

    Hungering Destroyer - Mythic Castle Nathria
    13:00 PDT (16:00 EDT, 22:00 CEST)

    Lady Inerva Darkvein - Mythic Castle Nathria
    14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)

    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.

    To facilitate testing, players who have not committed themselves to a Covenant can speak with Acquirer Ta’est inside Castle Nathria to temporarily bind themselves to one of the four factions.

    Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
    A: In Oribos, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade IV 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 60 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.

    We appreciate you taking the time to test our content and look forward to reading your feedback.

    WoW Classic

    • The Blue Scepter Shard, Green Scepter Shard, and Red Scepter Shard quest items are now Epic quality.
      • Developers’ note: We're changing the item quality on the Scepter Shard quest items to Epic (purple) so that they'll be easier to distribute to the correct person in raids using Group Loot or Master Looter.
    • Fixed an issue that caused C’Thun within Temple of Ahn’Qiraj to incorrectly delay casting Eye Beam when engaging in combat.

    So AQ was cleared on the same day it opened?

    Mmm... Who could have predicted this... I bet madseason's next video will be like "Ok, AQ was cleared in a day, but Naxx won't be"

    And then, Naxx will be cleared in a day.

    After being told for more than a year how Classic will be for hardcore players and us filthy "casuals" can remain in ez mode retail, every repetition of this sentence is warranted.

    Blame it on toxic classic-lovers and their failed perception of what it will be.

    Everyone who told you Classic/Vanilla is hard was delusional... but i keep seeing this exact same post under evey single thread about the game.
    It is just not needed.

    I am Classic lover and but i also hate these toxic super hardcore min-maxing elite players.
    I expect to clear AQ40 within 2 evenings with my non-hardcore (but raiding every week since beginning) guild.

    Or maybe they remember that vanilla was not always on patch 1.13 with op classes and hundred times nerfed raid bosses. Original C'thun kills lasted severel times more time than the current kills.

    He was unkillable basing on players experience 15 years ago.
    I am almost certain now that with current knowledge and min-maxing he would be doable. I can be wrong tho.

    I proved you can tank better than a Warrior as a Shaman in most cases so I win Classic.

    Takes significantly more grind and is about as difficult as the ap grind and corruption grind in retail. Yet people are crying rivers over that relativly tame grind...
    None of us really changes over time. We only become more fully what we are.

    that was because people didn't know how to do shit before and most people had shit internet connection, shit pcs and were also shit at the game. The people clearing cthun back then are more or less the same as the lfr clearing folks today.

    Because he was flat-out broken. Once he got fixed, he lasted about as long as in Classic.

    Its patch 1.12. Nax was already released in this patch. Therefore, cthun was already fixed.

    After you clear your AQ40 within evenings how about swap to retail and see how long will be until you clear mythic Nzoth. See if it takes 2 evenings aswell.
