UPDATED July 29

Character copy is now available, however, there are issues copying Demon Hunters and Death Knights.

Welcome to the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands test environment. Please read on for an outline of what’s currently being tested, what has recently changed, and what’s coming for testing later in the Beta.

Read the first developer update here.
Watch the July 8 developer update here.

Current Content Testing

Work in Progress
We’re currently working through the following issues and limitations:

  • In the new character copy function, Demon Hunter and Death Knight have a high chance of failure. We’re working on this as a high priority.
  • Testing with Dark Iron Dwarf characters is currently disabled.
  • The new starting experience can only be tested by level 1 Alliance characters.

Coming Soon
We’re unlocking much more content for testing over the next few weeks:

  • Pet Battle content
  • The Castle Nathria raid
  • More Character Creation/Customization Updates

Please note that the above is not a comprehensive list of features to be tested in the entirety of the Shadowlands Beta.

Thank you very much!

With the major changes coming to leveling characters from 10-50 in Shadowlands, we want to make sure that there is a navigational parity among all of the different expansions you can choose while questing. In the next version of the Shadowlands Alpha that will appear this week, testers are going to see an intentional change coming to Shadowlands for a couple of older Pathfinder achievements.

Specifically, the flight training rewards from Draenor Pathfinder and Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part Two will no longer be required for flying in Draenor or Broken Isles content. These will now be granted at level 30 with expert flying.

The achievements will remain in place as before, and Draenor Pathfinder will still be the way to earn the Soaring Skyterror mount, while Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part One will continue to reward increased mount speed in the Broken Isles.
