Naxxramas PTR opening for further testing

Recommended Posts

Dear players,

The Naxxaramas PTR will be open for testing on the 14th August 2017 at 18:00 server time (6PM).

Our development team since the last testing session have been working non-stop to ensure the quality of Naxxaramas, and to that end; ALL wings will be opened up for players to test.

Please read the following information regarding this weeks testing period:

  • Players will be able to create level 60 characters.
  • Anathema, Darrowshire and Elysium are invited to test.
  • In Orgrimmar and Ironforge, you will find an NPC who will give you consumables, frost resistance gear, various raid gear and enchants. This NPC will be located where you teleport to after speaking to the Teleport-NPC which is described below.
  • There will be a Teleport-NPC located in all starting areas to get you to Orgrimmar or Ironforge. This NPC will allow you to be directly teleported to Naxxaramas, as well as other locations in Azeroth, in order to test the 'Scourge Event' which will be added to the PTR during the next few weeks.
  • Initially, we want feedback on all parts of Naxxramas. Once we have enough feedback on a certain wing or boss we may close these sections. This is so we can focus testing on other areas so our developers can start working and gaining more feedback on the wings where it's most needed. They will then be re-opened for testing once issues have been resolved. 
  • Each boss in Naxxramas will despawn 30 minutes after being pulled. This should provide enough time to locate any bugs. If we find that more time is needed, we will make the appropriate changes.
  • GM's and testers will be available throughout the testing period. They will be able to assist you with problems that may arise during this time. 
  • Players are kindly asked that if they can, to record their runs and if you encounter a bug or problem, post them on the Naxxaramas testing  page located on Github using this link:

Note: Any bugs, recorded on video or not are to be posted here.

Regards,
Elysium Staff.

When does this close?  This is very short notice, and many guilds primary raid day(s) do not line up with the 14th.

It's going to last for probably a couple weeks. Chill, it's not a 1 day thing.

Polz here from Work In Progress. I will be here to help out as much as possible, to ensure that potential bugs are smashed! 

I'd like an estimate on how many hours/days you will continue the PTR for Naxxramas, depending on this, i might have 20-25 other players from Work In Progress come over here and Help me out.

PTR will be open as long as there are bosses or other content that lacks testing. I give no guarantees, as it primarily depends on when guilds are able to test, but it will likely stay up the way it opens tonight for a weeks time, more if the content has not been fully tested yet, less if we have all we need. The server will then stay down until there are new fixes that requires more testing. How long depends on the type of bugs we may uncover.

Bosses in Naxxramas will be disabled over the weekend. The PTR will stay open and trash will still be available for testing. Bosses will be re-enabled sometime next week after fixes.

Here's an idea. 

Give players incentives for testing and reporting bugs, like a unique tabard on the real servers for downing a boss in Naxx.
