We're currently bringing the 5.1.0 PTR up. I'll be updating this thread with time estimates and updates as I receive them.

Initial time estimate is 5-7 hours from this posting.

As always I keep this thread open and relaxed, please keep the discussion respectful and reasonably game-related.

Do we have to download the entire client or can we patch from the beta client?


When it's available you'll have to redownload, the previous PTR and Betas cannot be patched.

Going to push back the time a bit, probably going to be around 5 hours from now. First push of a patch cycle usually takes a bit longer.

No 90 templates as of right now.

We didn't purge the PTR realms, characters you made there should still be there.

I'd say 1-2 hours from now.

Also big caveat, I'm going to make a sticky about this in bug reports, Battle Pets do not work in this build. There's a crash when you finish a battle, so if that's what you're excited for in the PTR you'll have to hang tight.

Yeah you should be able to copy your live characters.

Templates aren't my call but I will note that there's a lot of desire for them.

So I was incorrect in my estimate and I apologize. We've hit a minor snag and we're going to halt this push for the evening. It should be up early tomorrow morning.

Again I apologize for the inconvenience.

Sure - but a few hours ago, I couldn't download the client due to a file error that stated the client couldn't contact the server, essentially. Now I can connect to a server and download files. Are these 5.1 files? Just trying to be explicitly clear here.


Yes, if you attempt to download the PTR now you should be getting the 5.1 build.

Yeah the PTR was up for a bit than I ran out to help a friend and what do you know its down again. Anybody know if we are able to access pandaria content?


That's why they're currently down. We're fixing some flagging issues.

I don't have a good ETA for when they'll be back up but we are actively working on this.

Heh, we're working on it. Everyone should be flagged now, making some more stability changes. Should be up sooner than later.

Should be within the hour. The previous issues should be resolved.

im not seeing any servers


If you're not seeing servers you're probably using your Beta account (likely WOW2)

Try using the other wow account (likely WOW1).
