Please accept our deepest thanks.

Thank you, everyone who made the time to test this with us today. We identified a number of issues, as expected, and we couldn't have done it without you.

We look forward to doing something like this again soon.

Thank you very much!

=================================

Edit: 2:00 p.m. PDT

Hi all,

Slight change of plans, we're going to bring realms back up a bit earlier than we originally messaged.

Beta Realms are coming up now (~2pm PDT). Go ahead and login and start working on the pre-launch quests that are currently offered (this will be Broken Shore for most characters). Once you're past Broken Shore, continue on through quests until you reach the final Dalaran Quests (City Under Siege, Anomalous Anomalies, Author! Author!).

================================

Tomorrow, July 7, we’re going to test launching Legion with the Legion Beta, and we’d appreciate your help.

At about 11:00 a.m. PDT on July 7, we’ll take the Beta down for a few hours to prepare. Then, at 3:00 p.m. PDT, we’ll bring the Beta up for testers to log in. During this time, you will only have access to Warlords of Draenor content, and any of your characters above level 100 will temporarily be unable to login. Once enough players have logged in, we will begin broadcasting server messages to indicate that Legion is about to go “live”.

As the expansion “launches”, you will be automatically prompted with new quests to start your adventures in Legion. Please follow them through to conclusion, and play through your class Order Hall opening quests. This will give us a useful look at our live launch.

We need your help identifying issues, and we’ll be looking for your feedback on the test launch in this thread and via in-game bug reports.

Thank you very much!

At the end of the Broken Shore Scenario where both Horde and Alliance go up to Gul'dan. Both Thrall and Jaina's bridge were made but they are not moving triggering the final stage of the scenario


We're investigating this right now, apologies.

After the book quest from Kara, there is nothing else to do. Do we just wait now until they open up the others?


Once you complete "Author! Author!", you just need to wait for us to "launch" legion. We'll be sure to message via server notice when we're ready to flip that switch.

We just restarted the servers, when they come up they should be fully Legion Launched, all your characters should be unlocked, etc.

Thank you so much for the testing today, we learned a lot! We may repeat this in a few days to gain more confidence in our fixes.
