Here comes another WoW Classic stress test, with the level cap going up to 15 this time around, and even better news - everyone that has an active account from the Americas and Oceania regions is getting access! In terms of content we'll have Warsong Gulch and Ragefire Chasm, Wailing Caverns and Deadmines available, as well as the level appropriate zones.

The stress test is coming on Wednesday at 2:00PM PT and it will remain up for 48 hours.

We’ll have our next stress test for WoW Classic on June 19, 2019, 2:00PM PT.
This stress test will be accessible to anyone with an active World of Warcraft game account in the Americas & Oceania region. For players who have not yet tested World of Warcraft Classic, the game will become available for download late tomorrow, June 18.

For this stress test, all races and classes will be available for creation, and the maximum character level will be capped at 15. In addition to the open world, there will be instanced content available at that level. This will include Warsong Gulch for PvP as well as Ragefire Chasm, Wailing Caverns, and Deadmines. Of course, Deadmines will be a challenge for players to complete at this level.

Please focus as much play as possible during the first three hours of the stress test. During this time, we’ll be looking for more issues to address under initial launch conditions. The stress test realm will remain available for 48 hours.

If you encounter any issues during the test, please let us know by using the in-game bug reporting tool. If there is anything you’d like to discuss further, feel free to post here in the Classic Discussion forum.

Thank you very much!

There's a town in Holland called America, guess it doesn't fall under "the Americas"? Otherwise I would move 😉

I just got access to classic. Is this just for tomorrows Americas test? It is only 3GB. Praying it is full access and I can get in as soon as the DL finishes and it isn't just for tomorrow.

Looks like it is just for stress test. None of the realms are currently active for me.

So, if classic just appeared on the launcher for me, and I'm in UK, does that mean I now have beta access??

If so Blizz have done a boo-boo. I'm not opted in to beta for classic, I'm sure that there are people much better placed than me to receive this...........

As far as I've understood everyone with a Battlenet Launcher can access this stress test, its intended to melt the servers.

      We've already seen the Alliance take down the deep breath queen with only 3 players, now it's time for the Horde to have some fun as well! It seems around 40-50 minutes is the sweetspot for downing Onyxia with 3 players, as all the kills took about that long. The Horde compositions are set for all three videos, as Warrior, Shaman, Hunter is the go-to for 3-manning the dragon lady, which is the faction swapped equivalent of the Alliance kill we covered, which just had Paladin instead. If you want to see further humiliation for basically WoW's first raid boss, you can check out 33 druids killing her, 33 hunters taking under a minute to down her or even naked raids taking her down.
      So let's take a look at 3 videos of 3-man Onyxia!

      The last one is also the most recent, and the title is misleading as it is not the Horde first kill, but it's still impressive!

      Update: the exploit has been hotfixed, as Blizzard announced in the August 28th notes.

      We have a new and major exploit in WoW Classic, which is allowing Mages to have a permanent 100% critical strike stat for as long as they don't die or log out. We're not going to get into the specifics of how to do this, except to say it involves the Combustion talent, which can be stacked up to 10 times for a 100% crit boost, even though it's more likely to be at 5-8 stacks, which is still plenty and can get you to a whole lot of crit.
      Blizzard will hopefully soon be made aware of this issue, as it's already been reported both on the forums and reddit, so a fix should appear quickly. While we won't link to the related threads to not spread the exploit, we will show you the results of it, in a rather painful Warsong Gulch match, as a Mage with 10 stacks runs amok. Warning for quite loud meme sounds.
      Hopefully this post helps bring this matter to Blizzard's attention, and if you manage to dig up the exploit on your own, don't use it - not only is it unfair and clearly not intended, but there might be bans for players abusing it as well.

      We're looking at a player who soloed Hogger in WoW Classic at Level 1 without dying. It took them 19 minutes and 22 seconds to do so! 
      Here is the VoD with Hogger at ~5% health left, so you can watch how the infamous Level 11 Elite gnoll got down!

      In a very weird/troll-y forum post named "What bots/hacks are allowed?" where a user asked which of the hacks and botting software is allowed because they keep seeing flying and botting players around, report them and nothing happenes, Blizzard actually responded and gave us some useful information to boot! Apparently the daily number of botting accounts being actioned (no specifics on the amount of time suspended) is in the thousands, as community manager Kaivax clarified:
      Bots (source)
      No hacks or cheats are allowed.
      Our anti-cheat team takes action against botters and hackers 24/7, and every time I’ve asked them “how many botters were actioned yesterday?”, the number is always in the thousands. That’s a global number, by the way.
      Our anti-cheat team focuses on popular botting spots, especially areas that are commonly reported by players. For example, Dire Maul has been one such area for cheaters, so a lot of attention from my colleagues has been put on Dire Maul recently.
      Please be encouraged to keep using the in-game reporting system for cheat/hack reports. Those complement our systems that automatically look for the ever-changing strategies and software that the botters are using, and reports really help us zero in on new hacks more quickly than we would have without them.
      Thank you!
