Blizzard released PTR 3.1.2 for testing, adding the new Argent Tournament Mounts, and a lot of class changes for Death Knights, Druids, Mages, Priests, and Warlocks. You can create premade characters level 80, so hurry up while it is possible to create them. You can test the Equipment Manager finally and a variety of Glyphs.  Help by providing feedback on any bugs or suggestions while you can before these features make it into the live realms. Check out the full patch notes after the break.

This is a list of frequently asked questions on the PTR.

Blizzard Quote:
1. What is the current version of the PTR?

  • The current PTR client version is

2. Will there be premade characters available for this testing phase?

3. Where can I read the latest PTR patch notes?

  • PTR patch notes will either be available on this forum, or at the following link:

4. I have copied a character over to the PTR, but it is not showing up on the server. Why?

  • Characters copied to the PTR are put into a queue with everyone else that is trying to copy characters over. This queue can grow quite large, and extend the time that it takes to transfer characters over. Please check the character transfer status, if it says “pending” then your character is still in queue to be transferred.
  • If your character is transfered successfully, but is not showing on the server still, please copy another character over. We will be unable to deal with character copy issues on an individual basis.

5. When I try to log into the PTR realm, it says my username and password are wrong, what do I do?

  • Your PTR login may not directly reflect what your login is for live servers. The login information used for the PTR is separate from live, and is typically cached from several weeks prior to the PTR becoming available.
  • What you should do: Please try any current or old passwords when trying to access the PTR. If you have converted to a account, please try both your login, and your previous logins.
  • If you previously had an authenticator on your account, and have removed it, you may still need to use the authenticator to access the PTR.
  • If after all of the above options you are still unable to access the PTR, you will have to wait until the next testing phase to try again. We will be unable to deal with PTR login issues on an individual basis.
