    PTR Update

    Public Test Realm has been updated to 9.0.1.

    Realms currently down, though.

    I'm actually surprised they're deploying it this early. We may be seeing the pre-patch as early as September. (Which would mean an October-November release date for the expansion.)

    Prepatch to the PTR...for the unwashed masses who don't have beta
    "Can't you see this is the last act of a desperate man?"
    "We don't care if it's the last act of Henry the Fifth, we're leaving!"

    Seems par the course for September-ish pre-patch and then November expansion indeed.

    Cool. I can test the Shadow Priest changes without being invited to beta. Assuming the SP changes will be live for pre-patch

    Because I'm genuinely curious: Is this the first time we've seen a prepatch on the PTR before an expansion release date was known?

    I haven't decided what I want to play for SL.

    It's either Frost Mage, BM Hunter, or Shadow Priest. So hope so.

    It's there, I've copied a couple so far about 5 minutes ago (just gone midnight UK time). Although I'm currently getting a buggy black screen of nothingnes now.
    e: Just taking forever to load stuff in.

    When I log in the background for character selection screen is black and I have no "Create New Character" button. I tried copying some Live characters and it says Copy Failed instantly. I tried "Copy Account Data" and after loading for 2 minutes it copied my main, but it continues loading (probably intent on spending 1 hour copying all my alts too....) so I closed it and reopened, but my main wasn't there and I still couldn't do anything..... and for some reason the PTR downloaded with 2-3 mb/s whereas my download speed is 20mb/s... all this wait for nothing. I could've played Horizon instead before work... my precious relax time :/

    TL;DR: I am in the PTR and cannot play.

    depends how many weeks it is I guess. I reckon prepatch will hit October, run for 4 weeks and we get the expansion November

    An October release is now looking somewhat possible. Each pre-patch since WoD (I didn't look back further) seems to land 4-5 weeks before the pre-patch itself lands, & pre-patch tends to last about 3-4 weeks before the expansion launches. If this follows a similar trend, then October is possible, although I'd still wager November is more likely given how much there is to tune.

    8.0 PTR: 14/06
    8.0 Release: 17/07

    7.0 PTR: 15/06~ (can't find for sure)
    7.0 Release: 19/07

    6.0 PTR: 11/9
    6.0 Release: 14/10

    I'd only endorse BM if you played it and liked it between Uldir and BoD. Until it gets a rework or at least a talent pass it's pretty garbage. Shadow is super fun to play!

    Some nice new performance options, you can now set a target frame rate and change the spell density which should help in raids massively.
