Superbloom Play with the Blues – September 23

On Saturday, September 23, starting at 01:00 CEST, come join members of the World of Warcraft development team on the Iridikron PTR realm as we playtest the new Superbloom public events that are being added in the Guardians of the Dream update.

The Superbloom is the new major public scenario event in the Emerald Dream. You will follow an Ancient of Life, Sprucecrown, as he begins a ritual to bloom life all around Amirdrassil, the budding world tree. He will need your help with various tasks along the way, such as watering flowers and pulling weeds. But danger also awaits, as the Primalists will not stand idly by while we empower the tree with life.

The event begins at the start of the hour, every hour. For the purposes of this PTR playtest, we’re going to be starting at 01:00 CEST, so we encourage you to log on at 00:45 to prepare your character and get setup!

In addition to the Superbloom, there are other public events that will also be active during this playtest. For more information on the Superbloom and these other public events, check out our post here.

To prepare for this test session, make sure you’ve followed the following steps:

  1. Open the Battle.net App and select the WoW playscreen.
  2. In the game version drop-down menu, select Public Test Realm (DF 10.2.0) and Install.
  3. The Play button should take you right into the PTR, and select the Iridikron realm.
  4. On the character selection screen, select ‘Copy Character’ to test with a copy of one of your characters from live realms.
  5. Players can quickly teleport to the Emerald Dream zone by talking to the Questzertauren NPC found in the middle of Valdrakken.
  6. The Superbloom and Emerald Bounty events will immediately be accessible to players once inside the Emerald Dream zone.
  • Please note that the event begins every hour, on the hour.

For the purposes of this playtest, we are allowing players to fast track Dreamfruit progression by talking to the Sprucecrown NPC and selecting the dialogue option to unlock all four Dreamfruit. This is not indicative of the day 1 experience and is only for gathering system feedback.

We look forward to seeing you in the Emerald Dream on the PTR at 01:00 CEST on Saturday, and we appreciate all of your testing and feedback!

Any way you can make it happen earlier? 1:00 CEST is VERY late for any EU player, don’t expect anyone to show up. And it would be nice to help the WoW Creators as well to take part in such event.
