A new Play with the Blues event is taking place on the 10.1 PTR this Friday, March 31. Blizzard will be looking for feedback on general PvP combat and changes introduced in Embers of Neltharion.
On Friday, March 31, please join members of the World of Warcraft development team on the Embers of Neltharion Public Test Realms (PTR) as we playtest PvP content in tandem with our new Embers of Neltharion items, PvP talents, and system changes. We’ll be observing and looking for feedback on general PvP combat, and we’re particularly interested in feedback on our new and updated PvP talents and our changes to crowd control.
We’ll get underway at 3:00 p.m. PDT (5:00 p.m. CDT, 6:00 p.m. EDT) with an hour of random Battlegrounds.
To playtest with us, log into the PTR, open the Group Finder (default hotkey: i), then select Random Battlegrounds, and click Join Battle.
Starting at 4:00 p.m. PDT (6:00 p.m. CDT, 7:00 p.m. EDT), we’re going to switch over to Rated Solo Shuffle for one hour. To playtest with us, log into the PTR, open the Group Finder (default hotkey: i), then select Rated Solo Shuffle, and click Join Battle.
Before the playtest, we recommend taking some time to get your character setup properly for PvP combat. All of the PTR realms support cross-realm queueing, so feel free to make your character on any of the realms (the World of Warcraft development team will be on Benedictus, for example.) Additionally, this week we’ve updated the PvP Gear Vendor located in Orgrimmar and Stormwind to sell Season 2 PvP gear, so we highly recommend wearing the new armor so everyone is on the same playing field. Additionally, please check out the various other gear and profession vendors in Orgrimmar and Stormwind to utilize the latest trinkets, gear, and class sets in Embers of Neltharion.
We look forward to playtesting with you and reading your feedback afterward. See you there!
