Today Blizzard started wave four of the Beta Invites going out to the Annual Pass holders. A wave of 250 000 invites, of which I finally got one. I have to say that Blizzard are acting fairly fast after all, since they now have over half a million people with Beta access.
This of course means that the Beta servers are quite busy. I tried logging in today to have a look and you can’t really do anything since there’s too many people. The reason Blizzard are inviting so many people at once I suppose is because some won’t even care enough about the Beta to logon, some will play a Pandaren Monk for a few levels and never login again.. and the rest of us will wait until they’re all gone and have a pleasant Beta testing time.
I’ve made myself a Pandaren Monk named Rhauralie, but I won’t get to play her until the servers calm down a bit. Character copying doesn’t seem to be working at the moment, once it does I will transfer over the classes I play the most, though obviously Warlock is the one I want to test out the most.
I will be writing more about the Beta and especially Pandaren and Warlocks later on. In the future all posts about the Beta will have a [Beta] tag in front of it. So if someone wants no spoilers at all, they can steer clear of them. (I generally don’t discuss lore or quests though, but I can understand if some people don’t want to know anything about what’s coming and so I will respect that and put the tag on my Beta posts.)
In the meantime, I wish everyone a Happy Easter/Noblegarden.
