Tests für Herausforderungsmodi und Mythische Raids stehen an

Für Warlords of Draenor wurde ein neuer Beta-Build auf die Server aufgespielt und dank diesem ist es nun möglich alle neuen Herausforderungsmodi der Instanzen zu testen. Dazu könnt ihr entweder manuell zu den Instanzen reisen oder einfach mit Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade in den Hauptstädten sprechen und euch hinporten lassen, nachdem ihr euren Schwierigkeitsgrad auf Herausforderungsmodus gestellt habt.

Starting with this beta build, all Challenge Mode dungeons are accessible. You can access them either by zoning in manually, or by setting difficulty to Challenge and speaking with Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade (in major cities or your garrison).

Tuning is definitely a work in progress. Some things are brutally hard, bordering on impossible. Some of the mob kill counts are off, and we’d like to hear about that – if you fall short of the kill count without using Invis/Shroud to skip any packs, or if you’re completing the kill requirement well before the end of the dungeon, let us know. And of course, Gold/Silver/Bronze times are very much placeholder.

Please use this thread for any feedback and reports of issues you encounter.

Natürlich ist das Tuning aktuell noch weit vom eigentlichen Ziel entfernt und braucht noch viel Arbeit. Aber genau dafür sind diese Tests ja auch gedacht. Also schnappt euch eine Gruppe und testet die neuen Instanzen auf Herz und Nieren.

Neben dem Herausforderungsmodus habt ihr morgen auch wieder die Möglichkeit der Schwarzfelsgießerei einen Besuch abzustatten. Es stehen weitere Tests im Mythischen Modus an. Am morgigen Freitag, um 19.30 Uhr MESZ könnt ihr gegen Beastlord Darmac kämpfen, gefolgt von Iron Maidens um 0 Uhr MESZ.

On Friday, September 19, we will continue Warlords Mythic 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.

Mythic difficulty is designed for a fixed-size 20-player group.

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

Friday, September 19

Beastlord Darmac – Mythic Foundry
10:30 PDT (13:30 EDT, 19:30 CEST)

Iron Maidens – Mythic Foundry
15:00 PDT (18:00 EDT, 24:00 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.
