Public Test Realms Available For New WoW Patch
9:34 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
As part of preparing the upcoming 1.7 patch for World of Warcraft, Blizzard has opened Public Test Realms and is encouraging players to participate in the testing. Including a new raid dungeon, battleground and a host of other features, the new patch will no doubt keep testers busy.
Players can participate in the test realms by creating a character or by copying their characters from existing realms to the test realms. Those who have previously copied their characters to the test realms will need to do so again, as all previous characters have been removed from the previous test realms. To copy your character and to download the test client, visit our Test Realm Character Copy page. Only players who created their accounts before August 2 will be able to login to the public test realms. Also, players will not be able to log in to the public test realms if they have changed their password since August 16. For more information about the upcoming patch and the Test Realm, follow the links below.

Please be aware that the test realms are there to allow us to test major content patches before the patch goes public. Therefore, some changes may be introduced to the public test realms before a patch goes live, and some changes may be introduced to the patch after the test realms have closed. To read more about the test realms, please review the Test Realm FAQ. We truly appreciate our players taking the time to help us test the latest changes to the game; thank you all!
