Recommended Posts

There's a big test push coming starting tomorrow, including both faction scenarios and the actual BfA launch (minus a few spoilerific cutscenes). There will be a brand new realm with character copy waiting for those lucky enough to have the beta, so head on over there to check it out!
You can also get an instant level 120 character in the Gladiator's Sanctum server where you can try out the new PvP features.

For more info on all the latest BfA additions, check out our expansion hub.

Please join us in testing the initial scenarios of Battle for Azeroth this week in the Beta.

We intend to start at 2:00 p.m. PDT on Tuesday, July 3 with the availability of the Teldrassil scenario followed by the battle for Lordaeron on a new Beta realm called “Launch Test”. Testers will be able to copy your live characters to that realm, and then experience the full storyline (minus a few cut-scene spoilers that we’re saving for later).

We’ll then use the same realm, starting on Thursday, to test the subsequent events of the actual launch of Battle for Azeroth. Testers will need to have completed the Lordaeron scenario before Thursday to participate in this test.

On Thursday, July 5 at 2:00 p.m. PDT, we will test of the Battle for Azeroth launch on the “Launch Test” Beta realm. At that time, all testers who have completed the Lordaeron experience will receive your first quest inviting you into the expansion, and we ask that you spend the next 30 to 60 minutes playing through the content provided.

One of the purposes these tests is to check for bottleneck issues where many players are competing for the same resources. We will also be monitoring for server performance issues under high, concentrated demand. This will help us ensure smooth launches.

Thank you very much for your participation!

The beta players are seeing now is waaaaay behind the version they have at the office. Most if not all those "bugs" are already fixed. People for some reason haven't figured it out yet that the wow beta is only a demo for advertising purpose. Its not for players to find bugs. They limit the number of participants to support the streamers and youtubers and whip the community into a frenzy so they have to buy the xpac.

You must not have played very long. I encounter a bug every 5 minutes.

I wouldn't be overly concerned about most of the bugs. They aren't going to fix everything on beta. I can understand the expectation to think they would fix everything and that this is a full version of what they expect BFA to be. It's not. They will fix massive bugs most of the time. It's mostly to see if anything breaks the game, and not in little ways that most players are thinking. Once they have an internal build that we dont even see on beta has bug fixes, they dont worry about adding it to beta every time. So long as they know how to fix it, they arent worried about it. Don't get me wrong, they can still miss stuff, I'm not saying it will be 100% on launch, but I will say, with every launch Blizzard has had, it's gotten better every single time.

I have to disagree with the last bit. I feel as tho this is the least hyped I've ever seen people being for a WoW xpac. If thats how you truly feel, then streamers have failed massively.

Yeah that's why you have "Report Bug" button active all the time and they encourage you to submit bugs all the time. As a mythic raider i want the game to be as good as possible for launch.Im just concerned that there is no time... And i doubt there is Awsome and polished version of the game in the "office" and they keep the beta crap because ... reasons.

For example: Last night we fight world boss and my Chaos Bolts caused people to get disconnected :D :D :D Shocking shits like this.

Example 2: People with active War Mode cannot play with people who didnt activated it because ... reasons.

We still managed to create a group for a Elite NPC WQ, but can't see each other... and so on..

Lets not even talk about numbers and specs. Im pretty sure it will be awsome game at the end of the day, but im concerned that they are rushing it and its not ready.

Pretty sure this is intended, its not an easy problem to solve because you want to be able to invite people to your group regardless of their warmode status so you can do dungeons / raids together. But in world content people with different warmode preferences cannot see each other, even if they are in the same group.

      With weekly maintenance on February 25, more Coalescing Visions will start dropping from Assaults and Daily Quests. Blizzard is also removing the (5) inventory cap on Vessel of Horrific Visions, allowing you to cary as many as you like, and up to 4 Torn Pages of "Fear and Flesh" will drop in Horrific Visions on the rank 7-11 Legendary cloak upgrade quests (up from 2).
      Blizzard (Source)
      We’re working on a set of hotfixes to the game that should streamline upgrading your Legendary cloak via Horrific Visions.
      Coalescing Visions now drop in higher numbers from Assaults and Daily Quests. The Unique (5) inventory cap on Vessel of Horrific Visions has been removed, allowing you to carry as many Vessels as you like. Up to 4 Torn Pages of "Fear and Flesh" quest items can now drop in Horrific Visions from objectives on the rank 7-11 Legendary cloak upgrade quests (was a max of 2). You’ll need to clear more than two sides areas in one run to get more than two pages. The rank 13-15 quests will still drop a max of 2 pages, only from Lost Area objectives. These updates will go into effect with weekly maintenance (Tuesday, February 25 in this region).

      The Darkshore Warfront is available now on Heroic difficulty for Alliance players, meaning it's time to get your piece of gear that is equivalent to Heroic Ny'alotha loot (item level 460).
      Alliance players have access to the Warfront: The Battle for Darkshore quest in Boralus that rewards 15 7th Legion Service Medals, one item level 460 gear piece, and Artifact Power.
      You can purchase the Sandy Nightsaber mount if you completed the Battle for Darkshore on Heroic difficulty (Heroic: War for the Shore) and have spare  350 7th Legion Service Medals.
      "A rare color for a nightsaber, and rarely seen, they are prized amongst huntresses."

      You can find out more information on all mounts by visiting our 8.3 Mounts Compendium.

      The beta opt-in support page has been recently updated and now would be a good time to opt in for Shadowlands Beta if you haven't done that already.
      Blizzard (Source)
      To put your name into the pool of candidates interested in beta testing for Shadowlands, sign up on the Shadowlands home page using the Beta Opt-In link at the top of the page.

      Signing up for beta does not guarantee you will be chosen to participate, but players who have not signed up to indicate interest cannot be chosen. Customer Support is not able to provide access to beta. Blizzard has released the first encrypted Shadowlands Alpha build earlier this week and added the forthcoming expansion to the Battle.net App Catalog, suggesting that Friends & Family Alpha is really close. Opt in for Shadowlands Beta by visiting the link below!
