Welcome to the beta test of World of Warcraft®: Warlords of Draenor™! As a beta test participant, you'll experience the new content and features of Warlords of Draenor before the expansion is released. Over the course of testing, you’ll venture through the Dark Portal, establish your Garrison, and fight back against the Iron Horde!

Feel free to share screenshots and video of your adventures and to discuss your experiences publicly. You'll find information on what content is currently available for testing on the Beta General Feedback forum.

Character Creation

    To get started in the Warlords of Draenor beta, you can either copy an existing character from live realms or create a level-90 template character. We're testing a new Character Copy system which is accessible at the Character Selection screen from within the beta game client. Note that this feature is currently only available to players with NA accounts. EU players will need to create level-90 template characters in order to access Draenor, which is also done at the Character Selection screen from within the beta game client.

Providing Feedback

Remember, your feedback will directly impact the quality of the final game—our developers are standing by!

Let’s go over a few things to keep in mind during the testing phase:

  • Please keep your feedback constructive and be very clear about what you like, or don’t like, about a particular aspect of the new content and features. By being specific about how your experience with Warlords could be improved, you can better provide us with actionable feedback.
  • To submit a bug or offer a suggestion from within the game, go to Game Menu (escape) > Help > Submit Bug or Submit Suggestion and provide us with as much detail as possible. The goal here is to ensure that we’ll be able to recreate the situation you were in when something may have gone wrong.
  • Lastly, test all the things! Get out there and dive into all the quests and random encounters, smite the rare spawns, and explore the new zones. The more you experience, the more information you’ll be able to share with us and your fellow testers.

Thank you for participating in the beta test of Warlords of Draenor, and we look forward to reading your comments, suggestions, and feedback!
