The raid tests in beta for the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion Shadowlands begin on this Thursday, July 23 and Friday, July 24 at 8:00 p.m. CEST. The goal is Hungering Destroyer, Lady Inerva Darkvein, Sun King's Salvation and Sludgefist in heroic mode in Nathria Castle. As usual, testing takes between 45 minutes and 2 hours per boss.

To give all testers access, the characters are scaled to the new maximum level 60 and the equipment is raised accordingly. The teleporter NPC for the raid, Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade IV, can be found in Oribos, Dalaran, Orgrimmar or Stormwind. It teleports you directly into the instance as long as the test is running. Below the Bluepost with further information:

"On Thursday, July 23rd and Friday, July 24th, we will be starting our raid tests in Castle Nathria.

1:00 p.m. PDT (4:00 p.m. EDT, 20:00 CEST)

Lady Inerva Darkvein – Heroic Castle Nathria
14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 21:00 CEST)

Friday, July 24th

Sun King's Salvation – Heroic Castle Nathria

As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test 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 Oribos, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade IV 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 60 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.

We appreciate you taking the time to test our content and look forward to reading your feedback. "
