Testing Availability and Fixes -- April 6

With today’s build, which is now available, the Burning Crusade Beta now allows testing of all leveling content up to level 70. Additionally, we have enabled:

  • The Eye of the Storm battlegroun
  • Heroic dungeons
  • Arena Skirmishes

Please note that ranked/rated PvP is disabled for testing.

At this time, the Burning Crusade Beta is configured to allow testing of content up to level 64. In the days to come, we will increase that cap as we become ready to test further.

  • PvP content is not available for testing at this time.

We will update this thread as we change the configuration of the test environment.

Black Qiraji Resonating Crystal (Scarab Lord Mount) is on the Global Cooldown when it should not be. It was not on GCD in Classic and all other mounts are still off the GCD in TBC Beta.

So is there any word on the wierd rendering issue on only the tbc client? Only present on the TBC client and no other clients. Its a wierd pinkish glow/outline around only my character (not my mount just the character itself) every other player/npc is rendering fine no outlines, made a thread about it and its not just a me issue others are having it happen to them also.

You can also see it on just the character select screen. You can turn up the resolution to 200% to reduce the effects but its still present and then causes other wierd issues when you do that.

Little concerning that its only the TBC client and still not fixed.

When you fully zoom out your character looks literally like garbage primarily around the gloves/legs/boots/chest cause the pink outline starts to overlap so it almost looks like you have no gear on just pink.

When can we expect the addons interface options panel to be fixed? Makes it hard to do any significant addon porting for addons that were heavily reliant on the interface options instead of creating their own custom ui options frame.

I wrote up a detailed report with possible fixes a couple weeks ago. Looks like it’s working now.
