Patch 6.2 PTR: Weitere Raidtests am Mittwoch und Donnerstag

Letzte Woche haben die ersten Raidtests für die Encounter der Höllenfeuerzitadelle stattgefunden. Wie Game Designer Ion ‘Watcher’ Hazzikostas im offiziellen Forum bekannt gab, folgen am heutigen Mittwoch, den 29. April 2015, sowie am Donnerstag, den 30. April, die nächsten Testläufe auf den PTR-Servern für WoW Patch 6.2.

So geht es heute Abend um 22:30 Uhr (deutsche Zeit) dem Hohen Rat des Höllenfeuers an den Kragen und im Anschluss um 00:00 Uhr (deutsche Zeit) Mannoroth.

Morgenabend könnt ihr den Höllenfeuerangiff ausprobieren und danach dann Socrethar den Ewigen. Alle vier Bosse werden im heroischen Modus zum Testen zur Verfügung stehen. Wie immer bei den PTR-Tests gilt, dass sich an den Plänen der Entwickler kurzfristig etwas ändern kann.

Falls ihr an den Raidtests teilnehmen wollt, benötigt ihr einen Stufe-100-Charakter auf den öffentlichen Testservern zu WoW Patch 6.2. Sobald die Höllenfeuerzitadelle dann geöffnet wurde, könnt ihr euch über einen speziellen NPC in eurer Garnison, oder in den Hauptstädten eurer Fraktion in den Raid porten lassen.

This Wednesday and Thursday, we will continue our Hellfire Citadel raid testing. 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.

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 PTR servers.

Wednesday, April 29

Hellfire High Council – Heroic Hellfire Citadel
13:30 PDT (16:30 EDT, 22:30 CEST)

Mannoroth – Heroic Hellfire Citadel
15:00 PDT (18:00 EDT, 24:00 CEST)

Thursday, April 30

Hellfire Assault – Heroic Hellfire Citadel
13:30 PDT (16:30 EDT, 22:30 CEST)

Socrethar the Eternal – Heroic Hellfire Citadel
15:00 PDT (18:00 EDT, 24:00 CEST)

After the conclusion of our final Thursday test, we will open the Halls of Blood Raid Finder wing (Council, Kilrogg, and Gorefiend), and we plan to leave that wing active through the weekend. There will be no scheduled Friday testing.

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.
