The Final Test — World PvP Events & Release Date

Dear players,

We are happy to announce the details of the third and final stress test! We’re extremely excited about this one, as we have quite some enjoyable events planned. As with the other tests, this one will begin on Sunday, December 4th, at 12:00 PM EST/6:00 PM GMT+1. Additionally, some time after the test is over, we will be announcing our release date! We hope you are as excited as we are and will join us for this final event. So let’s get to the details of what we have planned!

This week’s test will involve an all-out faction brawl! We’re pitting the Horde versus the Alliance in a global game of King of the Hill. We have designated the following four locations as the points of battle:

  • Blackrock Mountain,
  • Gurubashi Arena,
  • Hillsbrad Foothills (Southshore and Tarren Mill both count as a point.
  • Un’goro Crater Mountain.

Whichever faction holds the most points after 90 minutes wins the event. Once the victor is declared, we will unwind with two additional world bosses to conclude our testing. Upon entering the world, make your way to your capital city where you will complete a quest to become level 60. You will also be greeted by vendors in order to equip yourself with PvP gear, and trainers to prepare yourself for battle. There is one catch, however! You will not have ANY flight paths, and so you must get there by foot! Don’t forget to capture strategic points along the way to hinder your opponent’s progress!

All characters from the previous tests have been wiped. The sign-ups for stress test #3 is now available. On the account creation page, we will be providing with a breakdown of how many people are on each faction, and we ask you to balance them out 50/50. May the odds be ever in your fav… uh,... good luck to you all!
