World of Warcraft PTR 5.4 – Siege of Orgrimmar 10-Player Normal Raid Encounter Schedule

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in World of Warcraft News

Blizzard Entertainment announced the raid encounter testing schedule for the World of Warcraft PTR 5.4. It begins this upcoming Monday and Tuesday for the 10-player normal setting. The 10-player Heroic version and the 25-player Normal versions will be tested at a later time as the PTR 5.4 progresses.

Stay tuned for future raid testing schedules. I’ll do my best to hop on PTR to post videos.

On Monday, June 24, and Tuesday, June 25, we will begin our testing of raid encounters in the Siege of Orgrimmar raid. We’ll begin with 10-player Normal testing, and then move on to Heroic and then 25-player mode as the PTR cycle progresses.

Each encounter should be available at approximately the listed times below for all Public Test Realms.

Monday, June 24

Fallen Protectors – 10 Player Normal
10:30 PDT (13:30 EDT, 19:30 CEST)

Kor’kron Dark Shaman – 10 Player Normal
16:00 PDT (19:00 EDT, 01:00 CEST)

Tuesday, June 25

Immerseus – 10 Player Normal
10:30 PDT (13:30 EDT, 19:30 CEST)

General Nazgrim – 10 Player Normal
16:00 PDT (19:00 EDT, 01:00 CEST)

As this is our first testing session of many to come, there is probably a slightly higher than usual risk of bugs or other issues interfering with the planned testing, so thank you in advance for your patience. If you’re unable to participate in this session, don’t worry, there will be plenty of other opportunities to check out these bosses. Also note that several of the art assets and sound associated with the encounters being tested are non-final, but we’d like to get started testing and gathering data and feedback on the mechanics as early as possible in the process.

As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a beta environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the boss 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.

Important Testing Notes

Q: How do I get into the raid zone?

A: In northeastern Vale of Eternal Blossoms, in the exposed foundations of the Mogu’shan Palace, there is a staircase descending towards an instance portal. That is the entrance to the Siege of Orgrimmar raid.

Q: What gear do I use to test the raid?

A: Whatever gear you have. As we did for Throne of Thunder raid testing, we will be scaling players’ gear inside the raid in order to facilitate testing. Gear will be scaled (up or down, as appropriate) for the purposes of testing the encounters, depending on difficulty and their location within the zone. — source
