New Beta Build Coming Up Later Today (May 8)

(Locked)

Community Manager
We have a new build of the World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria beta client almost ready to push live, and it will come up later today. This new build includes a new zone (Townlong Steppes), new quests, and new scenarios.

Please be aware that players testing on 64-bit versions of a Mac OS will be unable to play during this build. There is an issue in this build with Mac-64, and we didn’t want that issue to delay testing for the majority of players.

We expect that we will release the next build, which will include a fix for the Mac-64 issue, later this week.

Thank you for your feedback and continued testing of Mists of Pandaria.

That would be my guess, Scyl, as MoP is definitely not ready for prime time!

We see when it goes live! :D
Is this why it's saying all the servers are offline for me? Sorry I know it sounds dumb, but I literally just finished downloading the MoP client and logged in just to find that the servers are offline. any help would be appreciated.

Yes, the servers are down, they were up about 30 minutes ago. I'm sure they'll let us know more information about the patch release as the servers come back up. This is kind of standard fare for beta testing, so it's good to get used to it. Remember there's always live wow to play as a backup!

On my Windows computer, I have a checkbox in the launcher to switch between 32-bit and 64-bit mode. Does the Mac launcher have a similar checkbox?

(Edit:
Oh, I misread the blue post. Re-reading, it looks like anyone with a 64-bit Mac may have issues. All modern Macs are 64-bit, so ouch thats a shame.)
