WoD Beta: Level 3 Garrison Profession Buildings, New Loading Screens, Mounts, 6.0.2 PTR Soon
2014/09/09 at 1:35 PM
Beta coverage continues with updates on Warlords loading screens, screenshots of new mounts, and pictures of the Alliance and Horde level 3 Garrison profession buildings! We also did a ton of

6.0.2 PTR Coming Soon
We're in the process pushing the latest 6.0.2 PTR Build to the Battle.net app. You should be able to install the 6.0.2 PTR via the Battle.net app shortly.
As a reminder, the Battle.net app is mandatory in order to play WoW, and all updating/installing will now go through it. If you don't have the Battle.net app, get it here!
If you have an older version of the PTR build, you may need to uninstall it if your version doesn't automatically update. In order to install the PTR, make sure the Region/Account dropdown box is set to PTR: Mists of Pandaria.
More troubleshooting steps can be found in this
Key things to note with this build:
Build version is version 6.0.2. 18838.
The Mac Version of the PTR client is not working quite yet. We hope to have it working in the near future, but I do not have an ETA at this time.
Character Copy is currently down on the PTR. When we bring it up, it'll be via the new in-game option, found on the Character Selection screen.
There is currently a known crash that occurs when changing to/from Windowed Mode while in game, or changing the Resolution in-game. We're working to fix that, although it may require a new build.
As in previous PTR tests for the Expansion Patches, this PTR will mimic what your live retail servers will look like on 6.0.2 Patch day (as opposed to the expansion launch date of Novemeber 13th).
This means that some restrictions will be in place compared to our Beta Realms:
Level Cap remains at level 90.
Tanaan Jungle, Ashran, and the other Draenor zones will not be accessible.
Garrisons, new dungeons, and new raids will not be accessible.
Warlords Loading Screens
While not added in the most recent build, more users have been messaging us about new loading screens and finding the artwork cool, so we figured we'd post them for everyone! Click to enlarge.
New Warlords Mounts
Wowhead users have been very busy farming up mounts in the Warlords beta, here are some of the cool ones they've recently uploaded!

5.4.8 PTR: Stacking Valor Buffs, Deeds of Valor, and New Mount Models
2014/05/15 at 8:55 PM
The 5.4.8 PTR was updated to
the recent datamined build
, so Olivia and I checked out what was new! The new mounts were not seen on the PTR, although we do have 3D models below of them. But we were able to experiment with the new

buff and determined that it was automatically given to all players across PTR realms and stacked additively with
Valor of the Ancients
--great for alts!
Edited to Add
: Logging in to the PTR today, the zone-wide buff has been removed. We're now not sure how it's attained, but we'll let you know when we find out!

Scroll of Resurrection Program Retires, Recent Hotfixes, Old LFRs and Scenarios in WoD
2014/02/11 at 9:15 AM
The Scroll of Resurrection program is being retired on February 18th--it's your last chance to get
Spectral Wind Rider
. We have a dedicated thread to help match you together located
. Feel free to use it while you still can!
The time has come to bid adieu to the Scroll of Resurrection. It’s served its divine purpose, but like most scrolls, it only has so many charges before it loses its magic and crumbles into ethereal dust. For those who’d still like a chance to use the scroll, you have until February 18 before players are no longer able to send invitations. For those who have an invitation outstanding, that’s still good for 30 days from the time it was sent, after which point the invitation will expire and the benefits can no longer be claimed.
For additional information on the Scroll of Resurrection, please visit our

An interesting problem with LFR that's overshadowed by the group dynamics or difficulty level is that LFR contain

Battle Pets: Collections and Ability Scaling
Good news for pet collectors in 5.4! Lead Content Designer Cory Stockton
confirmed that the pet collection cap will be 1000 in 5.4, up from 650
. While this may seem like a big increase for right now, keep in mind that Mists of Pandaria added hundreds of
wild battle pets
, and we're sure to see even more next expansion.
We've also recently added battle pet ability scaling to
Wowhead petability pages
. Users have long been able to check out spell scaling for class abilities, so we wanted to do the same for pet abilities!
You can scale pet abilities now by modifying the pet type, breed, level, and quality under an
