A few readers have reported in to say that character copies are currently up for what we presume to be the patch 3.3 PTR
(not that surprising, considering that Blizzard has been forthcoming with Icecrown info today
), but before you go running over to send your character racing to meet Arthas
, don't forget that usually in this situation, character copies get wiped before the PTR goes up anyway. You can try a copy, but don't be surprised if, when the realm finally does go up and Blizzard is ready, you have to do it again.
That said, this is a pretty good sign that the PTR is just around the corner -- Blizzard's got the content in a workable state, and they're just about ready to let us have a look at it and run it through the ringer for them. Icecrown or bust
