Ruby Sanctum PTR Testing Dates
Daelo just posted the dates and time we will be able to test the upcoming
raid dungeon on the PTR. The first testing date will be 2 days from now on
May 13, 2010
starting at 7PM EDT for US realms and 7:30PM CEST for European realms.
Since there are some issues with the character copy on the EU PTR realms, Ruby Sanctum testing has been pushed back to Friday May 14th at 7:30PM CEST.
Due to ongoing character copy problems, testing dates have been rescheduled; the US testing times are yet to be determined, and the EU testing times have been pushed back to Tuesday May 18th at 7:30PM CEST.
Now that the 3.3.5 patch is available for PTR testing, we wanted to have a round of focus testing for Ruby Sanctum this Thursday, May 13. Only normal mode will be available, with Heroic testing to occur at a later date.
Everything related to this zone is implemented for this test, please note any issues with the trash creatures and sub-bosses, loot, achievements, and quests.
