WoW fans, start checking your inboxes. Blizzard has announced that the beta of WoW: Mist of Pandaria is now live. Over the course of the test, Blizzard will be inviting Annual Pass holders, press, fansites, friends and family, and opt-in beta testers to participate. This first phase of the beta focuses on the 1-10 starting experience for new Pandaren. High-level content as well as template characters will become available in future beta updates, but you can still copy over your own high level characters now if you’d like to test the new talent system.
There is no NDA, so you can post screenshots and videos to everyone and – naturally – this beta is not representative of the final game. Blizzard will be making changes to the game as the beta evolves.
Players selected to participate in the beta test will receive an email invitation directing them to download the beta client directly from their Battle.net account. Be aware of phishing attempts and if you’re unsure whether your invitation is legitimate, log in to your Battle.net account to verify that there is a Mists of Pandaria beta license attached.
