Raid Testing Schedule – August 12-13

Quote from: Blizzard
On Tuesday, August 12, and Wednesday, August 13, we will continue Warlords raid testing. As always given the nature of beta, it is quite possible that there will be technical or gameplay issues that disrupt the testing. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.Remember that Heroic difficulty scales for any group size between 10 and 30 players, so feel free to assemble and bring a group of any size within that range. Our general plan is to test every encounter on Heroic difficulty first, and then test sections of the raid on Normal and Raid Finder, alongside targeted Mythic tests.

Each encounter should be available at approximately the listed times below on all Beta servers.

Tuesday, August 12

Hans’gar & Franzok – Heroic Foundry
13:30 PDT (16:30 EDT, 22:30 CEST)

Blast Furnace – Heroic Foundry
16:00 PDT (19:00 EDT, 01:00 CEST)

Wednesday, August 13

Kargath Bladefist – Heroic Highmaul
10:30 PDT (13:30 EDT, 19:30 CEST)

Operator Thogar – Heroic Foundry
13:30 PDT (16:30 EDT, 22:30 CEST)

Blackhand – Heroic Foundry
16:00 PDT (19:00 EDT, 01:00 CEST)

As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a beta 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, fire, 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, Dalaran, Shattrath, the two Vale Shrines, 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.) Note that new teleport NPC locations have been added to other expansions’ capital cities, as well as near the zone portals in Stormwind and Orgrimmar.

Q: What character should I use to test the raid?

A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players’ effective level to 100 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.

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.

WoD Cinematic Image, The Gaze of the Black Prince Returns, WoD Beta Dungeon Tuning, New Mount And Pet

Blizzard shared this image today of the WoD cinematic, which will get released on thursday. It looks amazing as usual!

The gaze of the black prince will return this week.

The Gaze of the Black Prince Returns

Beginning Thursday, August 14 at 10:00 a.m. PDT, through Tuesday, August 26 at 9:00 a.m. PDT, we’ll be applying the Gaze of the Black Prince buff which will increase the reputation gained with the Black Prince by 100%. It will also increase the chance of obtaining items from his foes needed as a part of the Legendary Cloak quest line including: the Secrets of the Empire, Sigil of Wisdom, Sigil of Power, or Titan Runestones.

To learn more about the Legendary Cloak quest line, check out our previous blog posts: I am Legendary and The Time Has Come: Legendary Quest Line.

Celestalon went onto the forums to tell us that currently the dungeons on the beta are overtuned.

Quote from: Blizzard
Our dungeons are currently overtuned, yes, with a few exceptions. We’ll be dialing in the tuning significantly in the weeks to come.

I do want to note, though, that “having mechanics” isn’t a problem. That’s gameplay. It’s certainly possible to have too many mechanics, but that’s more of a clarity issue where complexity prevents an encounter from being readily understood or processed. But making content accessible shouldn’t and doesn’t mean removing interesting gameplay.

In a sense, difficulty is measured by how many mistakes we allow you to make and still succeed. The problem is that we are currently punishing mistakes too harshly.

Crafticus previewed a new pet and the 250 mounts achievement reward on twitter!
