Kolosseum des Kreuzfahrers – Neuer Testfahrplan
Blizzards Daelo hat im amerikanischen Betatestforum den aktuellen Fahrplan für die Bosstests im Kolosseum des Kreuzfahrers bekannt gegeben. Die amerikanischen Spieler werden wegen immer noch anhaltender technischer Probleme auf den dortigen PTR’s erstmalig die Gelegenheit haben, alternativ das 5-Spieler-Dungeon Trial of the Champion (Work In Progress) früher als vorgesehen zu testen.
Hierzulande geht’s am heutigen Abend wieder wie gehabt ab 19:00 Uhr (MESZ) los. In Europa stehen die Faction Champions im normalen, nicht-heroischen 10- und 25-Spieler-Modus zum Testen zur Verfügung. Ausserdem ist der nächste Tausendwinter-Boss Koralon the Flame Watcher in Archavons Kammer testbar.
Alle weiteren Infos könnt ihr Daelos Posting hinter dem Newsumbruch entnehmen.
Here’s the current schedule for Trial of the Crusader PTR testing:
On the European test realms:
Faction Champions – Saturday Night, July 11, starting at 19:00 CEST.
The issues that were preventing raid testing on the North American PTRs are still not fully resolved. We’re looking into alternative means of enabling testing on these realms. I’ll update this thread when I have more information.
Note that only the 10 Player and 25 Player difficulties will be available on PTR. The Heroic versions will not be available. If you are usually part of raids that easily crushes Ulduar Hard Modes, you should find the non-Heroic difficulties to be not difficult.
Koralon the Flame Watcher is also available to be tested in the Vault of Archavon depending on PTR Wintergrasp status.
Test Patchwerks (Tank and DPS versions) will also be available in the Argent Coliseum during similar times to other bosses. Instead of the previous tank test patchwerk that increased melee damage over time, the 3.2 tank test patchwerk will just hit VERY hard (as hard as Algalon) all the time to allow for more lengthy sustained tank parses. We’re always interested in seeing combat logs and parses for all raid testing on the PTR, but especially test patchwerk logs. These are extremely helpful to our class team.
This schedule could change at a moment’s notice due to server, bug, or patch status. I’ll try to keep everyone informed as much as possible. The Trial of the Crusader and the bosses to be tested will remain also open a variable length of time. How long they stay open depends upon a host of factors including designer availability, bug status, etc. These bosses are very much a work in progress, and this is a test server.
Quick Trial of the Crusader FAQ:
Q) Where’s all the trash?
A) There isn’t any in this raid zone. Really.
Q) Where’s the loot?
A) Loot is present on the bosses, but note that many of the items do not have final art.
Q) What about achievements?
A) Most of them are implemented, but there are a few still remaining.
Q) What about the Trial of the Champion (ie the 5 player dungeon)?
A) This will be available for testing quite soon.
The Trial of the Champion is now open on North American PTR realms. We’re going to leave it open for testing for a while, unless something is broken to the point of causing serious testing issues.
This is very much a work in progress, please make sure and post bug reports and feedback for this dungeon.
Make sure you note if you try normal or heroic mode, as well as your gear and dungeon/raid experience when posting feedback.
