Warlords of Draenor: Weitere Raidtests am 31. Juli 2014

Heute finden weitere Raidtests auf den Beta-Servern von Warlords of Draenor statt. Wie immer solltet ihr mit zahlreichen technischen und spieltechnischen Problemen rechnen, wenn ihr die Bosse angeht. Denkt auch daran, dass der Heroische Modus eine flexible Gruppengröße von 10-30 Mann zulässt.

Getestet werden dürfen Flamebender Ka’Graz in der Blackrock Foundry (Schwarzfelsgießerei) um 22.30 Uhr MESZ und Beastlord Darmac ebenfalls in der Blackrock Foundry um 01.00 Uhr MESZ. In den Raid gelangt ihr über den NPC Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade, den ihr in Stormwind, Orgrimmar, Shattrath, Dalaran, in den Schreinen (MoP) und in eurer Garnison findet.

Sprecht ihn einfach an und er teleportiert euch in die Raidzone, die zum Testen freigegeben ist. Dabei könnt ihr jeden Charakter nehmen, da diese automatisch auf Level 100 skaliert werden. Nun aber viel Spaß beim Testen. Der ein oder andere Kaffee könnte aufgrund der Uhrzeiten wohl auch nicht schaden.

On Thursday, July 31, we will continue Warlords raid testing. As this is early in the overall beta raid testing cycle, 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.

Thursday, July 31

Flamebender Ka’graz – Heroic Blackrock Foundry
13:30 PDT (16:30 EDT, 22:30 CEST)

Beastlord Darmac – Heroic Blackrock 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, 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.
