Naxxramas Raid Testing – 4 November

Tomorrow, Wednesday, 4 November, we will continue our raid tests in Naxxramas.

23:00 to 03:00 CET

Bosses Available:

  • Sapphiron
  • Kel’thuzad

This testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.

Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
A: To facilitate and expedite testing, there is an NPC named Johnny McWeaksauce that has taken up temporary residence at Light’s Hope Chapel in Eastern Plaguelands. He will provide players with Naxxramas attunement and instant teleportation into the Naxxramas raid. Johnny’s brother Jimmy, can be found within the raid and will provide access to consumables and reagents.

Q: Can I test with less than a full, content-ready raid group?
A: There will be a zone aura present within the raid that will provide players with a significant health and damage boost, as well as some Frost Resistance, to help them overcome the challenges of Naxxramas. The intent of these raid tests is not to provide a challenge that perfectly matches what we expect players to experience when the raid goes live. The intent is to exercise boss mechanics and give us additional confidence that the raid encounters are behaving as expected. The hope is that even if you cannot muster a full 40-person raid to test with, or wish to form a pick-up-group on the PTR, you can still participate and make considerable progress within the dungeon if you so desire.

Please use the in-game bug reporter to send us any bug reports or issues that you encounter while playtesting on the PTR. We appreciate you taking the time to test this content, and we look forward to your feedback.

see ya there

Frost aura is ticking every second instead of every 2, and iceblock targets keep taking damage from aura. That seems wrong judging by some vanilla videos.

Every gear we farmed so far becomes useless now.

Who could have seen that coming?!

Quote from the post

Technically speaking Frost Aura ticks every second but due to the frequent reapplication (every 2 seconds) it clips itself (imagine a warlock spamming drain life every global, it wont actually tick every second since it wont reach the second tick before the aura gets reapplied). […] Frost Aura does indeed clip itself with the reapplication which is why in practice it only ticks every 2 seconds.
