8.1.5 PTR Developers' Notes


We’re underway with the deployment of our first build of WoW 8.1.5 to our Public Test Realms. We expect it to be playable soon, and we want to start discussions about the features of the update that we’ll be testing:

• The Kul Tiran Allied Race unlock
• The Zandalari Allied Race unlock
• Naga invasion World Quests
• New portal rooms in faction capitals
• The next chapter of pet battle Raiding with Leashes
• Warsong Gulch and Arathi Basin visual improvements

Our testing in this first build will be primarily technical, so some 8.1.5 features will be locked/unavailable for the first few days while we work on initial concerns:

• New War Campaign quests
• New quests and questlines focused on Magni, Hati, and the eight non-gathering primary Professions
• Warlords of Draenor Timewalking dungeons
• New Brawl in Arathi Basin vs. AI
• Wintergrasp coming to the Epic Battleground list
• New Brawler’s Guild update
• New Darkmoon Faire roller coaster
• New Micro-holidays and updates to Children’s Week

Additionally, you may see some features referenced in this PTR (such as Ashran as an Epic Battleground) that are not part of 8.1.5, but may be introduced in a later update. We’ll keep an eye out for such things and make sure to let you know what we aren’t testing in this PTR.

As always, thank you for your testing and feedback.



Any info when realms will be available?


I thought portal room will be buff or movement so far with removing Dalaran, shrine portals this is huge nerf and disappointment.Horde has different races than ugly orcs more than 40% of horde are BLOOD ELVES someone would thought maybe portal room would by made blood elf-nightborne like nah put spikes on it red and you are done so ugly,If there would be portals in every major city I would never step to uglymmar and stayed in Silver moon/Suramar which is HORDE city for some reason less functional then random village in Eastern Kingdoms really disappointed with Horde portal room massive portal availability improvement or do not use it at all Azsuna portal except Broken Isles Dalaran showed how you see your paying customers like idiots which can not read , great insult dumbs will be praising it people with brain hate it.


Is the «no server available bug» fixed?


@Aerythlea Maybe you have heard the PTR is not available for A LOT of people.
Can Blizzard please make themselves heard on this? Posts have been going on for a week now but 0 replies and GM’s are saying we should post on the forums…
