Please join us on June 18, on the WoW Classic PTR for a stress test. We’ll turn our attention to Silithus on the PTR at about 2:00 p.m. PDT, and the stress test will begin at 3:00 p.m. PDT (6:00 p.m. EDT).
On my first realm, Frostwolf, it was an all-nighter for me. The opening happened in the early evening in my timezone, and I spent the first four hours or so just trying to get from Eastern Kingdoms to Kalimdor.
It was then another six hours at least to actually do something in Silithus.
1:25 p.m. PDT
Our plan is to make the test realm available in a few minutes, so that testers can begin logging in and copying their characters over (or creating a template level 60 test character).
1:35 p.m. PDT –
The test realm is now open!
In the Blizzard Desktop App playscreen, select the WoW icon on the left, then go to the version dropdown on the bottom and change your version to “Public Test Realm (Classic)”.
The Install button will then install what you need to play.
