Blizzard is significantly overhauling the leveling experience in Legion's final content patch. The new system needs extensive testing and YOU can help make it better!

We need your help! Create a new character on the Public Test Realm (PTR), level as far as you can, and send us your detailed feedback. By leveling through the content and sharing your thoughts with us, you will have a direct impact on improving the new dynamic leveling experience.

WE NEED YOU!

  • What You Want: To help make World of Warcraft a satisfying and seamless world to level through.
  • What We Want: Your feedback—the good, the bad, and the ugly—so we can iron out the wrinkles.
  • How We Do This: Create a new character on the PTR, level up as far as you can, and send us your considered, original opinion on the overhauled leveling experience.

THE BIG ASK

As you may have heard, we are significantly overhauling the leveling experience in World of Warcraft to make life more interesting for all the lower-level characters out there. Leveling zones from 1–100 will dynamically scale to your character’s level for a certain range, so you can spend longer in the places you love and experience more of your favorite quest lines and stories as you travel through Azeroth.

This is where you come in. On the 7.3.5 PTR, we want you to level a character, then give us your detailed, original feedback on the changes: zones, dungeons, quests, and the entire end-to-end experience in the zones you love and at the pace you enjoy. Share your thoughts on the experience, warts and all, and give us valuable insight that will change the game for the better.

JUST THE FACTS

  • You will need to access the PTR build for Patch 7.3.5 (see below on how to do just that).
  • Level up over the course of the 7.3.5 PTR and provide detailed feedback on the experience. Examples could include:
    • Specific zones you played, and what level you were when arriving and moving on
    • Pick a leveling range to tell us about
    • Tell us which zones you chose and why, and what dungeons you completed
    • Your thoughts on the difficulty, pacing (including any specific quests or areas you had trouble with), and rewards
    • You can also let us know about any bugs you find: big, small, and downright squishy
  • We would also like to know:
    • Class
    • Specialization
    • The bug was annoying” is nowhere near as helpful as “When I arrived in Hellfire Peninsula at level 58 the quests were grayed out.”
    • (In other words: the more detail you give us, the better you will help us make the game!)

HOW TO CREATE A PTR ACCOUNT:

  1. Log in to Blizzard Account Management.
  2. Select your World of Warcraft account.
  3. Select Additional Services, then click Public Test Realm.
  4. Click History/Status to create your PTR account.

PLANNING AHEAD

Be sure to log in to your Blizzard account and select the Public Test Realm (PTR) in Game Accounts.

  1. Download the PTR client from within the Blizzard Battle.net desktop app.
  2. Log in to any of the available Test Servers.
  3. Create a new level 1 character.

FORGIVE US OUR MAINTENANCE

Champions take note! We plan to leave the PTR up throughout the holidays, but as with any test phase there may be short periods of downtime to apply changes, perform maintenance, and other trickier things that pop up. If the PTR isn’t available for any length of time, please know we appreciate your patience, good humor, and participation. We are working hard behind the scenes to keep everything on an even keel.

WHERE TO SEND FEEDBACK

Dynamic Leveling Feedback: 7.3.5 PTR forum 

Bug squishing: 7.3.5 PTR bug forum 

Thank you, we truly appreciate the feedback you give and look forward to all you have to share with us. See you in Azeroth!

If I level a character on a PTR realm, is it going to be on my main account, or is it just a "waste" to level a new toon up? 
By waste I don't mean that testing isn't a good thing, but yeah - level a new toon and might just "lose" it again would suck.

      Ah yes, the World of Warcraft South Park episode. It spawned many memes and was a pretty big deal for WoW at the time, bringing it even further into the pop culture mainstream. It seems the episode still echoes in people's minds, as ianxplosion took it upon himself to reenact the boys' plan to level to (the then max) 60 killing only boars. Obviously this has only recently become possible with the old world level scaling changes in 7.3.5, and while he didn't only kill Elwynn Forest boars (even heading to Outland for a short while) he did stay true to the episode's ideals and dinged 60 a few days ago. 6 days played, a month and 19 thousand boars later, here's the clip of the final victory, and a longer section of the stream from the final day:


      Live to win indeed.
      And finally, just in case you aren't familiar with the episode in question, or just haven't watched in a while, here's the inspiration for ianxplosion's quest, and one of the better South Park episodes in general, Make Love, Not Warcraft:

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a growing raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of four within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.

      We care more about the people we play with than their item levels or progression rankings. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 3/11 Mythic, Heroic AOTC Antorus progression.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid.
      We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for raiding the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      DPS: Will consider all specs, but would love to add a dedicated Elemental Shaman.

      The Nitty Gritty
      If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you a deeper dive into the raid team.
