The Legion Alpha Test Is Back

Posted Image

Official Blizzard Quote:

Our gnomish engineers have returned from their adorable little Winter Veil vacation to bring the Legion alpha test back online—and they’ve made a few updates in the process!

In addition to all of the content that was previously included in the alpha, testers can now explore the new Val’Sharah zone and delve into the new Darkheart Thicket dungeon. The Shaman Order Hall is also now available, and the new Demon Hunter Vengeance (tank) spec is ready for testing. The raid boss Ursoc has also made an appearance . . . and he can bearly wait to meet you. Character copy is currently disabled, but testers can create high-level characters using templates we’ve provided.

As a reminder, there’s no NDA (non-disclosure agreement) for the Legion alpha test, so participants are free to stream the game and share screenshots or movies. Please keep in mind that Legion is still in development—we’ll be making changes as we continue to prepare for the upcoming beta test, and what you’ll see during the alpha test is not necessarily representative of the final game.

Players selected to participate in the alpha test will receive an email invitation directing them to download and install the alpha client directly through Battle.net desktop app. As always, please be aware of phishing attempts—if you’re unsure whether your invitation is legitimate, please log in to Battle.net to verify whether you can install and play the Legion alpha.

Getting Started

1.If you’ve been selected to participate in the Legion alpha, your Battle.net account will already be flagged for access.

2.Make sure your graphics drivers are up to date.

3.Run the Battle.net desktop app—it may need to update itself if you haven’t run it recently. If you don’t have it installed, get started here.

4.Once Battle.net is installed and updated, select World of Warcraft from the list of games on the left.

5.In the Region/Account drop-down menu above the Play button, choose Alpha: Legion (listed under In Development), then click Install.

6.Allow installation to complete, and click Play.

Once you’ve launched the game, use the Legion alpha template to create a character. This is located near the Enter World button.

Providing Feedback

We’d love to hear about your experiences on the Broken Isles, so once you’ve had a chance to play, please send us your feedback.
  • For general feedback, use the in-game Feedback interface.
  • For crashes, please use the Crash Reporter feature that appears when the client crashes.
  • For general game bugs, use the in-game Bug Report interface.
  • If you’re getting a wrong version error, please uninstall and reinstall the client.
  • Discuss the alpha with your fellow testers in our Legion alpha General Discussion and Bug Report forums.
How do I opt in?

Once you’ve set up a Battle.net account and have attached at least one Blizzard game, you can choose to opt in to future beta tests from the Beta Profile page—just check the box next to which games you’re interested in testing. Once that’s complete, it’s simply a matter of waiting for an invitation.
