We're in the process pushing the latest 6.0.2 PTR Build to the Battle.net app. You should be able to install the 6.0.2 PTR via the Battle.net app shortly.
As a reminder, the Battle.net app is mandatory in order to play WoW, and all updating/installing will now go through it. If you don't have the Battle.net app, get it here!
If you have an older version of the PTR build, you may need to uninstall it if your version doesn't automatically update. In order to install the PTR, make sure the Region/Account dropdown box is set to PTR: Mists of Pandaria.

Key things to note with this build: Build version is version 6.0.2. 18838. The Mac Version of the PTR client is not working quite yet. We hope to have it working in the near future, but I do not have an ETA at this time. Character Copy is currently down on the PTR. When we bring it up, it'll be via the new in-game option, found on the Character Selection screen. There is currently a known crash that occurs when changing to/from Windowed Mode while in game, or changing the Resolution in-game. We're working to fix that, although it may require a new build.
As in previous PTR tests for the Expansion Patches, this PTR will mimic what your live retail servers will look like on 6.0.2 Patch day (as opposed to the expansion launch date of Novemeber 13th).
This means that some restrictions will be in place compared to our Beta Realms:
Level Cap remains at level 90. Tanaan Jungle, Ashran, and the other Draenor zones will not be accessible. Garrisons, new dungeons, and new raids will not be accessible. Warlords Loading Screens
While not added in the most recent build, more users have been messaging us about new loading screens and finding the artwork cool, so we figured we'd post them for everyone! Click to enlarge.
New Warlords Mounts
Wowhead users have been very busy farming up mounts in the Warlords beta, here are some of the cool ones they've recently uploaded!
Level 3 Garrison Profession Buildings
For our complete set of Garrison resources and guides; from basics to buildings, followers to missions, and much more, check out our
Level 3 Garrison Profession blueprints can be unlocked when
is completed. We've completed a ton of work orders on the beta for our profession guides, so we already had all the blueprints unlocked.
With the recent announcement that Level 3 Garrison blueprints are account-wide, we were able to preview the Level 3 buildings on multiple characters on different factions.
The Level 3 Profession buildings currently offer an increased amount of daily work orders and players without that profession can access an NPC that will craft higher-level recipes for them.
Also keep in mind that many buildings have cool perks at Level 2 if you assign the right follower to them--it's covered in our
