Thread: Join PTR

  1. #1

    Join PTR

    It is possible to play on the PTR as well as my usual Realm? I recall reading something about copying characters over to the PTR and then playing those there. If I download the PTR client update, do I have a choice as to where to play?

    and yes.

    no. As you have noticed, you copy your character data. That does not mean they are deleted on the live server.

    ^ Thanks for the reply. What I meant with the last question was can I choose to play on the PTR (with the copied characters) or on the live server (with my live characters)?

    You have start a different Game Client for the PTR. If you start the normal Game Client, it's all like it was when you have made the Copy.

    Useful info on how to download the PTR and copy over chars. They've improved the char copying process since early PTRs, when you had to create new char and then delete them and other work arounds. That said, when I got on v1.08 yesterday it failed twice to copy over my chars, and the first time it somehow brought up verisons of them from like, 6 months ago. Which was weird, as it even included a long-dead HC char.

    I did another copy over and it worked fine the 2nd time.

    Thanks, Flux.

    I have the latest, updated retail client. I've downloaded the PTR installer program. It says I need 15GB free space. Does the PTR installer download the whole game again?

    Or does it just involve downloading the patch itself -- 35MB, or thereabouts?
