The latest raid testing schedules have been released for the Legion Alpha. Make sure you know what is being tested and when!

 

You can check out the full post from Watcher below:

 

Blizzard Icon Raid Testing Schedule

 

On Monday, May 2 and Tuesday, May 3, we will continue our Legion Alpha raid testing. (I'd initially suggested testing would be Fri/Mon, but we're moving the dates so people don't have to choose between their Diablo Season 6 ladder aspirations and raid testing.)
 
Remember that Heroic difficulty scales for any group size between 10 and 30 players, so feel free to assemble and bring a group of any size within that range. Mythic, of course, requires 20 and does not scale.
 
Monday, May 2
 
Il'gyoth, Heart of Corruption - Mythic Emerald Nightmare
13:30 PDT (16:30 EDT, 22:30 CEST)
 
Cenarius - Mythic Emerald Nightmare
15:00 PDT (18:00 EDT, 00:00 CEST)
 
Tuesday, May 3
 
Chronomatic Anomaly- Heroic Nighthold
13:30 PDT (16:30 EDT, 22:30 CEST)
 
Grand Magistrix Elisande - Heroic Nighthold
15:00 PDT (18:00 EDT, 00:00 CEST)
 
As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of an alpha environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the boss 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.
 
Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
 
A: In Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade Sr. 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 110 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.

      Australian players will need spend more money for select WoW services starting June 26. Subscription prices and NZD pricing remain unaffected.
      Blizzard (Source)
      World of Warcraft is played in many regions around the world, and we regularly conduct reviews of the prices of our games and services in all currencies. From time to time, it’s necessary to make changes to certain pricing based on a variety of factors, including global and regional market conditions. Following a careful evaluation, we wanted to provide notice that we’ll soon be adjusting the Australian dollar (AUD) prices of some of the select services available for World of Warcraft.
      The new AUD pricing, reflected in the table below, will go into effect on 26 June AEST. Subscription prices will not be affected.
      New Zealand dollar pricing will be unaffected by this price change, and players in New Zealand will continue to purchase digital game software, virtual items, subscriptions, and optional game services at the current NZD pricing.
      We know that people have a lot of options for entertainment, and we never take pricing adjustments such as this lightly. We appreciate that players choose to spend their time with World of Warcraft, and we’re committed to ensuring the game continues to provide Australian players with a great entertainment value.  
      New Price Starting 26 June -  AUD Name Change $13.50 Appearance Change $20.00 Helms $20.00 WoW Token No change Character Transfer $34.00 Race Change $34.00 Pets $13.50 Mounts $34.00 Warforged Nightmare $40.00 Pet & Mount Bundle $47.00 Faction Change $40.00 Guild Transfer $47.00 Guild Faction Change $54.00 Guild Name Change $27.00 Character Transfer & Faction Change $74.00 Character Boost $80.00 Guild Transfer & Faction Change $88.00

      The amount of Experience granted by War Mode has been decreased to 10% in Battle for Azeroth Beta Build 26871.
      War Mode
      In Battle for Azeroth, Blizzard effectively eliminates two server types: PvP and PvE. WoW will only have two realm types going forward: Normal & RP realms. Enlist in War Mode (Enlisted) and activate World PvP, increasing quest rewards by up to 10% and enabling PvP Talents in the outdoor world. Enabling War Mode grants access to PvP talents that can be used in the outdoor world (even for questing). The amount of Experience gained by enlisting in War Mode is now 10% (down from 15%). War Mode will be available in the 8.0 pre-patch.
