Raid Testing Schedule - July 19

Game Designer
On Friday, July 19, we will continue testing raid encounters in the Siege of Orgrimmar raid. We're proceeding with 10-player Normal testing, and will then move on to Heroic and then 25-player mode as the PTR cycle progresses.

Each encounter should be available at approximately the listed times below for all Public Test Realms.

Friday, July 19

Spoils of Pandaria - 10 Player Normal
10:30 PDT (13:30 EDT, 19:30 CEST)

Thok the Bloodthirsty* - 10 Player Normal
16:00 PDT (19:00 EDT, 01:00 CEST)

*Depending on the status of a couple of bugs, we may test another encounter in place of Thok.

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

Important Testing Notes

Q: How do I get into the raid zone?

A: In northeastern Vale of Eternal Blossoms, in the exposed foundations of the Mogu'shan Palace, there is a staircase descending towards an instance portal. That is the entrance to the Siege of Orgrimmar raid.

Q: What gear do I use to test the raid?

A: Whatever gear you have. As we did for Throne of Thunder raid testing, we will be scaling players' gear inside the raid in order to facilitate testing. Gear will be scaled (up or down, as appropriate) for the purposes of testing the encounters, depending on difficulty and their location within the zone.

Can you please not announce testing <24 hours in advance? I was hoping the earlier testing announcements would set the pace for the rest of them :/

22.5 is pretty close to 24...

(Seriously, though, we try to announce as far in advance as possible. We weren't sure the new PTR build would be up in time to allow for testing this week, but it ended up happening, so given a choice between short-notice testing and no testing at all, we're going to go with the former almost every time. Apologies for the inconvenience.)

Quite understandable.

Do Garrosh if you can't do Thok today.

I'm not sure that'd be a good boss to drop on people last minute. That is going to require more organizing. If they had to sub in for thok it'd probably be the protodrake or a retuned repeat I'd hope

Hopefully we just get thok though, it's one I've had time to do plenty of prep for.
