      Update: testing has been postponed a day:
      Warband (Source)
      Hello everyone. We’ve ran into some hiccups the Warband conversion and have to push the PTR testing date an extra day to June 18. We’ll be sure to keep you posted if anything changes.
      Please continue to keep copying your characters until June 18 in the meantime. Thank you!
       
      Original Post:
      Blizzard are holding a specific test for Warband integration on the PTR and asking players to help. On June 12th players will be able to copy any of their characters to the new War Within pre-patch PTR, and then on the 17th will be able to log in and test the Warband feature. 
      Warbands (Source)
      Come help us test the Warband feature on your favorite characters! We want to test how character info on multiple characters merge when it becomes account wide.
      This is how the testing will work:
      June 12 – The PTR realms for The War Within Pre-Expansion update (11.0.1) will become available to copy characters only. We will ask that you copy as many characters as you like to the PTR, especially multiple characters that you have played a lot will be particularly helpful for this test. June 17 – We will run the conversion and open the servers for logging in. Please be patient. The Warband conversion may take some time:
      Your account may take several minutes to gather and convert all characters on first log in. Not-yet-implemented: There will be a dialog letting you know your characters are being added to a Warband. When we open the servers for log-in on June 17, please reply to this thread and let us know your feedback, along with the answers to the following questions:
      For any achievements that are newly account wide, did they combine correctly across your characters? Did your Dragonflight reputation progress combine correctly (furthest progress on any character)? Do you have flight paths from all your merged characters? You know your character and accounts best, let us know of any problems you see! We will run future tests as needed. Please note that any characters copied after the test will not be accumulated into your Warband until a future date.
      Known Issues
      Copied characters will be missing Dragonflight reputations, any flight points, and certain existing achievement progress. Item Sort and Cleanup does not work as expected in all cases. Dragonflight reputations will disappear in the reputation tab when logging out. Appearance acquisitions are sometimes listed twice in chat. Deposit All Warbound Items deposits more than Warbound items. Deposit All Warband Items pulls items from Character bank. Some reagents cannot be used from the Warbands bank. Items cannot be swapped in the account-wide bank. Players cannot purchase account-wide bank tabs with money stored in the account-wide bank.

      While a Galakras skip will cost you 1,500 Bronze, it will save you a couple of minutes! Find out how to skip the boss in MoP Remix!
      If you're running Siege of Orgrimmar daily and the Galakras encounter bugs you, here are two skipping methods. The first one requires two Demon Hunter players who need to go through a small obstacle course. So in total, you won't save 5 minutes, but more like 3 minutes and 30 seconds.
      Galakras makes Siege of Orgrimmar unsoloable due to the tower mechanic, so for those who would like to skip it, here is another method using the Heroic Leap tinker gem.
      We're also including a screenshot in case it gets deleted. Thanks to krin132 for the screenshots!

      Blizzard has responded to feedback on the Delves, outlining upcoming changes and addressing a bug that has been concerning players.
      First off Brann is getting buffed, with a focus on his survivability, but also his general usefulness overall. Secondly, players have been commenting on mob respawns within Delves and it seems that's almost entirely unintended, as a bug made them respawn. There may be some exceptions, but enemies will not be coming back once we take them out. 
      Delves (Source)
      Hi everyone!
      Thank you so much for the great feedback so far. We are looking at improving Brann’s survivability and usefulness throughout the delves. It is also a bug that enemies respawn. Aside from some exceptions, once something is dead in a delve it should stay dead. We’ll also be reviewing tuning for different classes, along with improvements to the pain points that have been mentioned here within certain scenarios.
      Thanks again, and please keep the feedback coming!

      In a completely un-shocking turn of events, Danta has created another great, fast, and easy guide for a raid mount, and this time it’s the Glory of the Thundering Raider achievement!
      Here’s the first hurdle: you have to do this raid 4 times to get the last achievement. Previously, this would have meant enduring 3 more "weekly" resets, which can be tedious as Danta himself admits. However, there’s a saving grace! Until MoP Remix ends, the Pandaria raids have a daily lockout instead of a weekly one, as confirmed by Blizzard.
      The second challenge is defeating the boss on Heroic difficulty. But the rewards - a ton of transmog gear and a cool-looking dino mount - make it worthwhile! 
      So what are we doing all this for? Well, completing the Glory of the Thundering Raider achievement will award you the Reins of the Armored Skyscreamer , a pretty cool looking dino mount!

      Image Source: Wowpedia.
      Additionally, you have a chance to obtain two other mounts in the raid itself: the Clutch of Ji-Kun is a rare drop from Ji-Kun and the Spawn of Horridon which is a rare drop from, you guessed it, Horridon, and in another shocking twist, the mounts look just like the bosses themselves.

      Danta also recommends using the Instance Achievement Tracker Addon that helps keeping track if you met the criteria for the achievement. So thanks to him for another very useful guide and our brand new mount(s)!
