guidance for Beta quests/dungeons

6 posts in this topic

Hi priesties,

 

Wondering if I could get some guidance for the Beta testing - I'm almost level 92 now and am out of quests - one bit of advice was to play the other faction - makes sense, I can try that, but I'm more interested in trying out dungeons and understanding the garrison a bit more.

 

Gwenymph, others - do you have any advice? I googled "how to begin draenor beta testing" and Icy Veins came up tongue.png  but I didn't see anything that says, okay, do this, now, go here (ie, how do I get to SMV? should I have started by copying Maple over there?)

 

Appreciated,

Maple

As far as getting to SMV:

 

There is a portal in Stormwind next to the Twilight Highlands and Uldum portals out in the lake.

 

I like it more when transferring over your current toon yes but I have leveled both types of toons so far.  To get into a dungeon run, use the LFR interface and choose Warlords of Draenor Dungeon and Q up that way.  Garrisons are still a little buggy but you can level it up at least once to the "Fort"  Other than the Alchemy building I havent been able to add or upgrade anything else yet.  Some of the quests you send your followers on are bugged and you cannot complete them until a GM clears it out of your "in progress" tab.

 

You said you're out of quests so I'm assuming you already made it to SMV and were just giving an example ya?  The blasted land quest line is open now but I have not made it out there to try it out yet.

Sorry to say, no, I haven't made it out of the surrounding area where you create the garrison, though I've travelled a bit (found some 100s; they didn't like me being there tongue.png).

 

I plan to copy my priest over this weekend, so I will try to port to SMV from Orgrimmar and begin working on that area. Thanks for the tip about using the LFR interface.

Did you play through the Assault on the Portal event? That is for both factions.  I missed the part where I was trying to tell you how to get to SMV through SW as a horde..... lol   Otherwise create an alliance toon to check out SMV, it is A LOT nicer than Frostfire Ridge

Haven't yet been able to get back on the beta - RL sometimes demands more attention tongue.png

 

I think I will go back to my roots and create an Alliance toon - I don't recall the Assault on the Portal - I think I just got quests and starting hacking healing away at them.

There is a larger than life Khadgar in Orgrimmar and SW to send you to the Dark Portal and start that even chain.

      Union is an Alliance guild on Uldum (PVE server) - I will keep this short. We are looking to add two ranged dps to our core mythic team. We would prefer a hunter/shadow priest/boomkin. We are currently 9/10 Heroic in Nighthold after 2 nights of heroic raiding. We were 7/7M in EN and 2/3M in ToV. We raid:

      Tuesday - 8-11 EST
      Thursday - 8-11 EST
      Sunday 7-11 EST

      We recruit players that have a good attitude, have high dps and are good with mechanics and movement. 

      If interested, add me on btag: Stormcaster#1629

      A little bit of info about us:

Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids.

      We currently raid Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:00-22:00 server time. We run social/alt raids during off days in which all ranks of the guild are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is also welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with a 3 days a week schedule that you are expected to attend. However we understand things can come up but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons and world quests to gear in preparation for raids. This includes improving your artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared (i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      - 865 ilvl
      - 25 traits at the very least.
      - Experience on 4 or more bosses in EN Mythic.
      You will receive a response within 3 days but probably within 1. The trial process will last 2 weeks, sometimes longer. During the trial period you will not have loot priority over raiders however you may of course still roll.
