Public Test Realm
The World of Warcraft Shadowlands patch 9.2.5 release candidate from a few days ago is apparently the release candidate, because Blizzard has posted to their official site that we're getting patch 9.2.5 next week, on May 31.
The first patch cycle of Shadowlands has arrived: patch 9.0.5 is now live on Public Test Realm (PTR), featuring Valor Points and a number of systems changes.
In World of Warcraft, we're seeing the public test realm spin up and the spoilers for characters and storylines in patch 8.2 already starting up.
I've been on the PTR for patch 7.2 a bit this weekend, testing out things like the tweaks to the transmog system and the Demon Invasion systems.
Update: The Legion pre-patch, patch 7.0.3, is now live on the PTR!
If you haven't been an active WoW player during a patch cycle in the past, you might be a little lost at all the buzz around the recent release of patch 6.2 on the game's public test realms. We'll walk you through what you need to know.
