    Default Classic Stress Test - June 19-21 - NA/Oceania Only

    Just saw that blizz announced that everyone with active subscription in America and Oceania region can join the next stress test so a lot of people that can test stuff.

    Should be a great time to test things.

    Sadly I am EU so I can't participate. I would have liked to setup all addons and macros now...

    Thanks !

    So far I haven't participated in any Beta stuff.

    If I wanted to join do I need to download or do anything special over and above than being up-to-date on the live retail WoW client and the current ISBoxer/Innerspace builds?

    Do I need a 2nd install of WoW &/or ISBoxer/Innerspace?

    Ill be running Census+ like I did the last stress test, got great info but had to delete my horde character to check alliance side.

    Hopefully can get my kill only quest route more figured out. The number of players in starting zones has be crazy each test. Impossible to level almost.

    Any insight on the Alliance side would be greatly appreciated. I plan on taking 5 gnomes (4-5 Warlocks & maybe 1 Mage) to at least level 20 ASAP for portals and maybe 35 for crafting.

    Ill just drop the stats here from the last test in May. Please remember this was the next morning not the night so a lot less players.

    Total unique characters: 5628 (alliance) Horde side I ran a test earlier in the night with 8018 unique
    Rest stats are just Alliance side.

    Dwarf 811 14%
    Gnome 776 13%
    Human 2583 45%
    Night Elf 1458 25% So nightelf zone has least number of players starting in it. on Horde Busiest starting zone was Undead>orc/troll>Tauren

    Warrior 951 16%
    Hunter 910 16%
    Mage 795 14%
    Paladin 760 13%
    Rogue 625 11%
    Warlock 563 10%
    Priest 537 9%
    Druid 487 8%

    Hope this helps others

    Thanks!

    For my main 3 Warrior+2 Paladin team that I plan to take to cap I am planning on all Human (or 1 Elf if I swap a Druid for a Warrior).

    I may actually however start and level the 5 Gnome team to at least level 20 first so that I can stage them as I go around the map for strategic summoning. The Gnomes traveling around may help my main as then I can then summon them where-ever I want (within reason).

    It may make sense to just quickly create the Gnomes and get out of the starting area ASAP as the Focus Fire of 5 Wands may open up options that aren't as viable for single players.

    I really don't know much about leveling casters so my limited understanding is that I start with Wands and don't know at what level I should be moving away from Wands (on a 5box team of either all Warlocks or Warlocks with 1 Mage). I don't know if/when would be the time to switch to AoE or whether just 5 focus fires is the way to 20. The main thing I want to do is to stock as many shards for summoning as I go ;-) .

    This approach may then allow me to later start my main team with less congestion.

    I've edited the title of the thread because long titles get cut off. Longer titles work fine on sites like reddit, but not so much on message boards.

    Could always just start a new BNet and attach some US accounts to it.

    Just make sure that Inner Space is pointed at the beta executable file, and your Characters are attached to it, so that it has a profile to launch.

    No?
    Do not send me a PM if what you want to talk about isn't absolutely private.
    Ask your questions on the forum where others can also benefit from the information.

    Just keep in mind you don't start with a wand equipped. The first easily available wand is at level 5 and will require tailoring/enchanting (tailoring to craft the greens to DE) https://classicdb.ch/?item=11287#created-by - Making 5 of them will require a ton of linen cloth (again, for the greens to DE and get lucky with an essence)

    Otherwise you'll have to wait until level 15 unless you get lucky with a random green drop https://classicdb.ch/?item=5208

    OK thanks Hksix. At this point I really just want to 5 box them as quickly & efficiently as reasonably possible to 20 so maybe I can just do that with regular spells and mana/pets if I do them as the first group. If I do them as a second group I guess I could easily provide the wands from my main group...
