Die Tests auf dem öffentlichen Testrealm neigen sich dem Ende zu, nur noch wenige Bosse wurden nicht getestet. Dieses Mal stehen drei weitere Encounter auf dem Testplan: Socrethar the Ethernal, Hellfire Assault und Xhul'horac.
Apologies for the short notice here - we were waiting on confirmation of PTR build status before proceeding. We will be continuing our Hellfire Citadel raid testing in the new PTR build. As is always the case with PTR raid testing, it is quite possible that there will be technical or gameplay issues that disrupt our plans. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
Each encounter should be available at approximately the listed times below on all PTR servers.
Thursday, May 28
Socrethar the Eternal - Mythic Hellfire Citadel
11:30 PDT (14:30 EDT, 20:30 CEST)
Hellfire Assault - Mythic Hellfire Citadel
13:30 PDT (16:30 EDT, 22:30 CEST)
Xhul'horac - Mythic Hellfire Citadel
15:00 PDT (18:00 EDT, 24:00 CEST)
We will also be opening the Halls of Blood Raid Finder wing over the weekend (Hellfire High Council, Kilrogg, and Gorefiend).
As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a PTR environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the boss being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
Important Testing Notes
Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
A: In Stormwind, Orgrimmar, and your garrison, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.) You can also teleport to Tanaan and just walk in the standard entrance.
Q: How long does testing last?
A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we're satisfied that we've received that information for a given boss, we'll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.
