Teaser Bild von Patch 8.2: Videos zu den Raidtests der vergangenen Woche

Wie bereits durch einen zu Beginn der Woche in den Battle.Net Foren von World of Warcraft durch einen Bluepost des Entwicklerteams angekündigt wurde, haben die für die fortlaufende Entwicklung dieses beliebten MMORPGs zuständigen Mitarbeiter von Blizzard Entertainment im Verlauf der vergangenen Tage die ersten richtigen Raidtests auf dem aktuell laufenden öffentlichen Testserver von Patch 8.2: Rise of Azshara durchgeführt.

Während dieser an zwei Tagen durchgeführten Testphase durften daran interessierte Personen erstmalig in die heroische Version von Azshara’s Eternal Palace eindringen und dort dann gegen vier verschiedene Encounter aus der ersten Hälfe dieses kommenden Schlachtzugs antreten. Damit selbst die nicht auf dem PTR aktiven Fans von World of Warcraft einen ersten Blick auf diese neuen Bosskämpfe werfen können, haben netterweise viele Streamer und YouTuber ihre Begegnungen mit diesen Ecountern in Videoform festgehalten und kurz darauf dann auf ihrer favorisierten Plattform hochgeladen.
