BFA Dungeons, Island Expeditions, and Raids

14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)

Friday, May 11th - Monday, May 14th
Normal Uldir

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 bosses 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.

Q: How do I get into the raid zone?

A: In Zuldazar, Boralus, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade III in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)

Q: What character should I use to test the raid?

A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players' effective level to 120 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.

Q: How long does testing last?

A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we're satisfied that we've received that information for a given boss, we'll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.
Any indication as to what time on Friday normal will be available?
Please fix the scaling on smaller groups before testing goes live. I would love to be able to get an accurate idea of how the fights will feel in a smaller group of friends rather than force myself to bring 30 pugs and potentially wipe just to have scaling not be an issue.
What time on Friday does it open, and what time on Monday does it close? Would help for planning. Thanks!
Normal testing will start shortly after heroic testing finishes. Somewhere around 16:00 PDT. It will end in the morning around 10:00 PDT on Monday.
Any chance of leaving it open THROUGH monday? It's mothers day weekend and many raiders have commited entire weekends to their mothers/wives/etc. We'll literally miss entire test window unless we can do it monday evening.

The raid schedule is an issue, period, if you are a regular joe-blow that works a job with daytime hours.
