- In-game Character Copy is coming online, so try it out if you'd like to bring over a character to the PTR. You can access this in-game via the Character Selection screen once you've logged onto your PTR account
- Garrison information is currently not copied over along with your character due to how it's saved on live retail realms, so if you copy a character right now they won't have a garrison on the PTR. We're working on a way to resolve this, but I don't have an ETA right now.
Just wanted to share some early information regarding the 6.1 PTR. Note: this information is subject to change as plans are implemented. I'll update this thread or make a new one as I receive more information.
- PTR Accounts and realms are currently locked to Mists of Pandaria. Upgrading the PTR accounts to Warlords is a lengthy process so I don't have an exact ETA, but it's something we're actively working on.
- In-game Character Copy is currently offline. The plan is still to use the in-game system as opposed to the old website version (which hasn't been functional since 5.4).
- Characters were wiped after the 6.0.3 PTR realms were brought down last month, and cannot be retrieved at this time.
