That's right: 250,000 beta invites. According to a new post by our friend Community Manager Bashiok
, Blizzard is sending out another 250,000 Mists of Pandaria
beta invites to players tonight, just in time for the three- or four-day holiday weekend in the United States.
That's right -- we're in the process of sending 250,000 additional beta-test invites to Annual Pass holders. Keep an eye on your email and Battle.net account for an invitation to come test Mists of Pandaria
As with previous waves, it's going to take a while for the invites to process, so we recommend checking your games list in Battle.net Account Management to see whether yours has arrived yet. Once it does, you'll see the Mists of Pandaria
beta client available for download from there. We expect this entire wave to take a day or so to complete.
We appreciate the enthusiasm of everyone who signed up for the World of Warcraft
Annual Pass, and we're working hard to get you into the beta. We know you're excited to explore Pandaria and test the new content, and we'll keep you posted here in the forums when we're ready to send out another wave.
As normal, remember to check your Battle.net Account Management
page to see if you got beta access, as the email notifications tend to take significantly longer to get out.
It's open warfare between Alliance and Horde in
Mists of Pandaria,
World of Warcraft's next expansion. Jump into five new levels with new talents and class mechanics, try the new monk class, and create a pandaren character to ally with either Horde or Alliance. Look for expansion basics in our Mists FAQ, or dig into our spring press event coverage for more details!
