Stress Test Complete

Thank you to Blizzard and the community
this was breath taking.


I think the things that surprised me most were, the graphics/art looked much better than I recalled & the world seemed much, much bigger.

All of it. Seeing the world alive, dangerous and especially the bosses running around in Stormwind.

My favorite parts was just going around and doing random stuff in the world with people I came across for no reason at all. Then the final boss battle in Stormwind was super fun, and happy they gave us the opportunity to be part of it.

People in general on the stress test seemed more willing to strike up conversations, and the world just felt more alive.

Some of the fun/silly stuff I did with people or just people I came across -

  1. When I had made a Human, I came across a Human and a Gnome RP walking to Stormwind. They greeted me with “hello traveler”, and I joined them for their little RP walk for a while to/through Stormwind, where they would greet people they walked by. I managed to walk by them again later on and they were still together :).

  2. Came across a group of people in The Barrens(about 5 of them). As I was walking by, they called for me to stand in their line. They were celebrating how one of them got a green dagger(I think that’s what it was) at lvl 5. They asked me to join them, but I was going to Org.

  3. Came across a Troll on a Zeppelin to UC. I found them again when I went back into the main UC door near the throne. We started messing around on the throne and just making jokes. We went to Sylvanas, and started talking to her about stupid things, like how we wanted to convince her to not burn the tree in the future. We said “Sylvanas, idle bounce(night elf) if you agree with us.” lol

  4. When I would go through the Undead starting zone as a Tauren, some people would stop and talk to me saying hi since I was a Tauren. I came across another Tauren there, and I recall him saying something like “Hi brother!” and an Undead there was happy to see a Tauren.

and more :slight_smile:

It was just a lot of silly stupid stuff, where people seemed more likely to speak out about random things, and it made things seem more lively and connected between the player base.


It was glorious

The part where I was stuck on character creation on and off for 4 hours before I went to bed. It was totes kewl.


You’re all talking about the stress test that happened yesterday, right?

I had gotten an invite to the first stress test, but wouldn’t you know I took overtime at work and ended up missing it. x_x

It would have happened at the perfect time right as I was waking up, too. lmao.

The stress tests are live for 24 hours from the time they start. It went from last night to 6 PM pacific tonight.

By far my favorite part had to be being in SW 2 hours before it closed, with thousands of players and Ragnaros on top of the entrance. Also the guild I joined banding together to pool gold to make a guild tabard
Oh and of course GM Omar just summoning stuff in Northshire Abbey and instakilling Asmongold

Are you serious?

I thought it only lasted for two hours for some reason. : /

Yup, I was playing a good amount today. Luckily, there’s another one next week as well with the same 24 hour thing.

How do you download the client?

Your launcher “beta & stress test” on your WoW page if you’re in. Under “Region/Account” drop down.

It was amazing and brought back fond memories. I was happy to be apart of both yesterday’s log in raid boss and today of actually being able to log in. The biggest highlight of all? Was able to be part of the creation of a new community(guild) for when classic WoW releases… We all added each others btags and created a discord for use to stay in touch. This, by far, has probably been my best current experience on WoW.

Hoggers In Chat ftw! :rofl::rofl:

XDDD awesome guys
