If you’re still not testing the PTR (Public Test Realm) with us, and you want to, we’ve made it easy to get started. Just follow these steps:

CREATE A PTR ACCOUNT:

  • Log in to Blizzard Account Management.
  • Select Games and Subscriptions.
  • In the Starter Editions & Public Test Regions section, select Create PTR Account.
  • Click the Create Account button.

JOIN THE PTR:

  • Open the Blizzard Battle.net App and select World of Warcraft from your Games list.
  • In the selector above the Play button, change your Region / Account to PTR: World of Warcraft.
  • Click Install to install the PTR client. This becomes a Play button when ready.
  • Click Play to log in to the PTR, and select any of the available Test Servers.
  • Create a new test character, or copy over a character from your live account using the Copy Character button.
  • Enter the game and test the new content!

This is already the case, and has been for a very long time. I just did clean installs of the retail game and then the PTR, and the PTR download was about 1/10th the size of the retail download.
