WoW Patch 9.2 in February? Blizzard picks up the pace - seven raid tests announced


One of the first topics raised in the official Community Council forum was the short notice with which Blizzard usually announces raid tests on WoW's PTR. Now the developers are trying to take this into account and announce such tests a bit earlier - as in the current case. Because with a new post, the folks at Blizzard have announced tests for this week and next week alike. In addition to some mythic bosses, the next LFR wing is also on the schedule, as well as the normal difficulty.

The tests will begin next Thursday evening our time and will be active over each of the weekends. As in the past, the mythical bosses will only be available for about an hour, while the LFR wing will open right after that and will be testable for the entire weekend.

On the following weekend (from January 21, 2022), the battle against the mythical Anduin awaits us, which is hotly anticipated by many. Instead of another LFR wing, the normal game mode will probably be available for the rest of the weekend.

These tight timings already lead to the assumption that the WoW developers probably want to release patch 9.2 in February 2022.

As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a testing environment. We may have to change the time of a test session, change the bosses to be tested, or cancel a test altogether due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and we thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.

  • Q: How do I get to the raid zone?
    • A: In Oribos, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you can speak with Nexus Lord Donjon Rade IV to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport to a zone is not available when the zone is not open for testing).
  • Q: Which character should I use for testing the raid?
    • A: Whichever one you prefer. We will scale the players' effective level for raid testing to 60 and the item level to a value appropriate for the encounter(s) being tested.
  • Q: How long will the tests last?
    • A: The main purpose of the tests is to provide us with the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how the mechanics play out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we are satisfied that we have obtained this information for a particular boss, we finish the tests. Usually this takes between 45 minutes and 2 hours, but there is no guarantee.
