The World of Warcraft®: Mists of Pandaria™ beta test has begun!Over the course of the test, we'll be inviting Annual Pass holders, press,fansites, friends and family, and opt-in beta testers to participate. Thisfirst phase of the beta focuses on the 1-10 starting experience for newPandaren. High-level content as well as template characters will becomeavailable in future beta updates, but you can still copy over your own highlevel characters now if you'd like to test the new talent system.
As there's no NDA for this test, you're likely to start seeing lots ofscreenshots and new video around the web. Please keep in mind that theexpansion is still in development — we'll be making changes to the gameas the beta evolves, and what you'll see during the beta test is not necessarilyrepresentative of the final game.
Players selected to participate in the beta test will receive an emailinvitation directing them to download the beta client directly from theirBattle.net account. As always, please be aware of phishing attempts —if you're unsure whether your invitation is legitimate, please log in to yourBattle.net account to verify that there is a Mists of Pandaria beta licenseattached.
