Condividi su WhatsApp  WhatsApp

Settimana fin qui carica di grandi novità per World of Warcraft dopo un periodo di sostanziale silenzio dovuto principalmente alle vacanze Natalizie, ormai passate da qualche giorno.
Questa notte gli sviluppatori di Blizz hanno infatti pubblicato dei nuovi update nel Reame Pubblico di Prova che riguardano principalmente le razze Kul Tiran e Zandalari ed i test del raid Crucible of Storms.
Proprio in merito all’ultimo citato, Blizz ha comunicato che il 10 Gennaio alle 22 sarà disponibile The Restless Cabal in versione eroica e dovrebbe restare online per 45 o massimo 120 minuti.

Per quanto riguarda la patch, quella aggiunta ieri è la 8.1.5 e sblocca finalmente le razze degli Zandalari e dei Kul Tiran; inizia inoltre la World Quest dell’invasione Naga, sono stati aperti i portali di fazione nelle Capitali e sono stati anche provati alcuni update che saranno sicuramente protagonisti nuovamente in una futura patch.
Di seguito tutti i dettagli provenienti dal PTR di World of Warcraft, vi auguriamo una buona consultazione ed un buon divertimento.

We’re underway with the deployment of our first build of WoW 8.1.5 to our Public Test Realms. We expect it to be playable soon, and we want to start discussions about the features of the update that we’ll be testing:

• The Kul Tiran Allied Race unlock
• The Zandalari Allied Race unlock
• Naga invasion World Quests
• New portal rooms in faction capitals
• The next chapter of pet battle Raiding with Leashes
• Warsong Gulch and Arathi Basin visual improvements

Our testing in this first build will be primarily technical, so some 8.1.5 features will be locked/unavailable for the first few days while we work on initial concerns:

• New War Campaign quests
• New quests and questlines focused on Magni, Hati, and the eight non-gathering primary Professions
• Warlords of Draenor Timewalking dungeons
• New Brawl in Arathi Basin vs. AI
• Wintergrasp coming to the Epic Battleground list
• New Brawler’s Guild update
• New Darkmoon Faire roller coaster
• New Micro-holidays and updates to Children’s Week

Additionally, you may see some features referenced in this PTR (such as Ashran as an Epic Battleground) that are not part of 8.1.5, but may be introduced in a later update. We’ll keep an eye out for such things and make sure to let you know what we aren’t testing in this PTR.

As always, thank you for your testing and feedback.

On Thursday, January 10th we will be conducting our first raid tests of the Crucible of Storms.

Thursday, January 10th

The Restless Cabal – Heroic Crucible of Storms
13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)

As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses 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.

Q: How do I get into the raid zone?

A: In Zuldazar, Boralus, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade III 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.)

Q: What character should I use to test the raid?

A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players’ effective level to 120 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.
