2019-08-21T22:00:00Z, please join us on the 8.2.5 PTR for an old school Alterac Valley Play with the Blues.

Starting promptly at 3:00 p.m. PDT, Blizzard employees will be testing our 15th Anniversary rendition of AV on the PTR, and you can join us for some strife in the Field of Strife.

Please log into the PTR by that time and then open your Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and switch to the Player vs. Player tab. You’ll see Alterac Valley waiting for you to join.

Afterward, please return to this thread with your feedback.

Thank you!

Thank you all for testing Classic Alterac Valley with us on Thursday afternoon and posting the feedback above! It was fun to reminisce about the Alterac Valley of olde while we got more information on issues that we can address:

  • There were some NPCs (notably Durgen Stormpike) who weren’t the correct level. We’ve fixed this issue and other related bugs players have reported.
  • We hear you about the item-level of rewards from Classic AV, and we’re working on increasing them. We’ll let you know what that looks like once we’ve made a final adjustment.
  • We really appreciate your feedback on specific NPCs you thought were too easy or too tough, and we’re going to take all of it into account as we make a final tuning pass.

We noticed some players had questions about the specifics of this event battleground that haven’t been answered yet, so here are some additional details:

  • Players can queue up from level 10 to level 120, and will be set to level 60 in the instance.
  • Lower-level players will earn experience from monster kills, completing quests, and participating during events in the battleground, so we hope it will be a fun way to level characters during the World of Warcraft 15th Anniversary event.
  • Rewards are intended to be appropriate to your level.
  • You can queue up with a party or even a complete raid!

Thanks again, and we’ll see you again in Alterac Valley.
