So I was sitting on the couch last night, watching Project Runway (if they take Jeffery off the show, I’m writing a letter) when I received a new email:
“Welcome to the beta test of World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade!
We’re excited to have reached the beta-testing stage for the expansion, and we’d be grateful to have your assistance in finalizing the content. There are a lot of new things to see and do in Azeroth and Outland, and we look forward to receiving any feedback you can offer on your overall expansion-beta experience, including quests, spells/abilities, monsters, zones, aesthetics, and more. We would also appreciate reports on any bugs you may find.”
Booyah!! I entered a beta tester code when I got my Murloc card from BlizzCon, and I’ve been wondering if this email would ever come. I did a happy little WoW dance in my living room, and then sadly rememebered that I was going away for the weekend with my S.O. But on Sunday, I’ll be copying Glaukos over to the test realm, and probably
make a lvl 60 to test the end game stuff ! I’m so excited!
Only… 47 hours til it’s done installing. Oops, make that 107 hours. Guess not a lot of people are on the torrent yet. I can wait though, I’ve come this far. Full reports coming, well, eventually.
UPDATE: I’ve learned from a source that there will be no creation of lvl 60 characters to test Outland:
“Please note that we’ll be unable to provide pre-made characters, in-game gold, or in-game items. Closed beta participants will all be able to create brand-new characters to experience the new starting-zone content for the Blood Elves and Draenei, the two new playable races being introduced with the expansion. In addition, those testers with level 55+ characters will be able to copy some of them over to the test realms to take a look at the Outland portion of the expansion beta.”
GAH! This isn’t the same as the last time I was in test realms. Glaukos is only 52. Guess I’ll have to level him quickly.
