Naxxramas Raid Testing – October 16

Tonight, we will continue our raid tests in Naxxramas, with the Arachnid Quarter.

23:00 CEST to 03:00 CEST.

Available Bosses:

Anub’Rekhan

Grand Widow Faerlina

Maexxna

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 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.

Aura not working

No vendor inside naxx

Also would be good for future testing to add more consumables to the vendor.

after watching ptr streams looks like naxx needs buffed. Bosses are getting deleted faster than MC bosses lol

thats because of the insane just pretend buff

+3000 hp and +100% damage

Honestly I think naxx bosses will get deleted when naxx launches aswell. With the pretend buff we were doing like 1.3-1.5k dps. People do that already with world buffs. Some people that had full wbuffs + 100 extra dmg did push above 2k but it was 1-2 of em only so it did not matter that much.

A rai with full world buffs will be able to burst throught naxx. The only problem is that it is just a little longer but some trash packs seem easier and faster to clear than aq40.

As for bosse especially 4hmen I am confident it will be possible to burn 1 of them very fast without needing a tank swap and the 2nd only with a single tank swap.

Do you honestly think that any dadicated guild will NOT burn through Naxx in 2 hours on the first raid night with 0 wipes? Honest queation.

People wanted #NoChanges, so what do you expect.
