Around 3:45pm EST, Blizzard Entertainment switched the Shadowlands Alpha text from the dropdown menu to Shadowlands Beta. Three minutes after I noticed, build 35167 began to be auto-downloaded.
This means closed beta invites might be rolling out shortly. The best way to find out if you have access is checking the World of Warcraft dropdown tab above the PLAY button in the Blizzard Launcher.
The email invitation can arrive within minutes up to 8 hours later depending how far in the mass-email queue you are. So it is faster to check the Blizzard Launcher. Do not click any links in any email. Even if the sender says @blizzard.com — this can be spoofed by phishing scammers.
To join closed beta click the opt-in button here. You must login to your account first.Read More

Alongside my coverage of the Shadowlands event server, I was able to take part in a group interview with Ion Hazzikostas about the expansion and WoW in general. The interview went, round robin style, from one person to the next until we ran out of time. I ended up being able to ask three questions. While there was some very juicy information revealed from others’ questions, I don’t want to steal anyone’s thunder. I’ll let those parties share those answers on their own time.
Here are the transcripts for the three questions I asked Ion and his answers.Read More
Yesterday, I had the chance to play on an event server for the initial build of the the upcoming Shadowlands beta, featuring The Maw and the venthyr covenant.

Oribos received a few cosmetic updates. There are now tons of broker camps surrounding the city, but they lack NPCs. Sometimes guards walk past and stare at the empty camps for a moment, then resume their patrol.Read More
