In four weeks, October 27, 2020, World of Warcraft Shadowlands will go live. As the developers announced today, a final stress test will take place for the pre-patch of the new expansion before it – presumably – will be published on October 7th. All information below.

A stress test will take place on the PTR servers Anasterian and Benedictus on Wednesday, September 30th at 9:00 p.m. CEST and Thursday morning at 4:00 a.m. The developers have implemented some server updates behind the scenes of the Shadowlands expansion and want to invite as many testers as possible.

While the changes to be tested are barely visible to you, they are of great importance to the game service. These changes have already been implemented and successfully tested in the Shadowlands Beta, but never before with such a high number of testers on a single server.

The format of this test is straightforward. Please log in to the PTR Anasterian or Benedictus, create a character, enter the game and play as long as you want. The developers expect to be finished collecting data in around 20 to 30 minutes. Due to the potentially extremely heavy load on the game service, it is recommended that you create or copy a character in advance. It is possible for the realm to crash, and it is also possible for players to be disconnected from the game a few times to create more load spikes. Please re-enter the game with your chosen character if you had a disconnect.

The developers thank you in advance and look forward to the chaos of this test, followed by a smooth start of Shadowlands.
