This coming Tuesday, August 6, 2013, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. PDT, select members of the World of Warcraft Development and Community teams will be hosting a “Play With the Blues” event on the PTR! Anasterian and Broxigar will be the two realms you can choose from where you can play alongside Ghostcrawler, Bashiok, Zarhym, Nethaera, Daxxarri, Rygarius, Lore, and Crithto. The Blues will be divided among the realms, participating as both Alliance and Horde and we’re hoping you will join us as we explore the mysteries of the Timeless Isle.

One of our goals is to have a lot of fun! And at the same time, we’re also hoping to receive your feedback about the island. Hidden chests, spooky caves, ghostly ships, angry rare mobs, helpful power-ups, and birds that will pluck you from your boots and take to the sky; this will be a wild event where you’re sure to walk away with some cuts and bruises. And maybe even some epic lewtz!

To copy a character to the Public Test Realm, log into your Battle.net account, select World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria PTR listed in Your Game Accounts, and then click on the link that says, “PTR Character Copy”. You may also create a pre-made level 90 character of your choice. Either way, we truly hope you’ll join us and share your feedback about the new content.

UPDATE: The date of the event has been changed to next Tuesday, August 6, 2013, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. PDT.

Many of you have already experienced some of the adventures on the Timeless Isle and there are a few updates we’d like to share with you. Listed here are some adjustments that will be implemented in time for the Play With the Blues event:

  • Based on initial feedback, we’ve lowered the health and damage of many of the creatures on the Timeless Isle.
  • Several avoidable mob abilities have had their damage reduced, or have been given a more obvious visual warning.
  • Celestial abilities will no longer hit players outside of the Celestial Arena.
  • Using the Censer of Eternal Agony will no longer make you hostile to friendly NPCs.
  • Many new quests have been added to the Isle which are designed to tell more of its story.
    Come Monday, we hope we can all have a great time testing these new adjustments and many of the other features on the Timeless Isle together. And of course, your feedback is important, so please feel free to post it in the PTR Discussion forum.

    If you're looking for us, we're scattered about on the Timeless Isle. Those of us who are logged in and playing will have the title BLUE in front of our names.

    Level 90 characters will receive a quest when they enter the Vale which will lead you to speak to Chromie. Just follow the quest info from there. ;)

    Thank you all for joining us on the PTR for stress testing & necessary chaos. <3 Patch 5.4 development continues!

    That was fun, too bad the server crashed.

    Thanks, blues! 'Twas fun hanging out with y'all (and being led into traps by Nethaera >.> )


    Meh.. we lived ;p Mostly. I had a great time with you all too. Sorry I couldn't talk to people more, there were just so many whispers and chats to read through.
