We will soon begin public testing of patch 5.0.1 of World of Warcraft, a patch that will precede the Mists of Pandaria release, and includes many features and functions that are new to the game.
We encourage all players who wish to test patch 5.0.1 with us to take careful note of the following:
Thank you for your continued support of our testing and tuning process. We look forward to seeing you in-game.
Notes: PTR Character copy seems to be enabled. (It is my copy just completed, do it now before the servers become overloaded!)
Template copy's are not enabled
PTR servers aren't up yet but i will update when they are.
Don't be a noob and expect much, this is basically ui stuff/new talents and maybe the pre-event if they decide to test that later.
However normally the PTR means a release date is incoming.
