World of Warcraft Classic Beta Re-Opened for Closed Beta Testers; Level 40 Character Templates Available and Level Cap Raised to 45


Blizzard has re-opened the World of Warcraft Classic Beta for those who had access to the game’s closed beta.

Classic’s final Pre-Launch test kicked off last Friday and to ensure that the fixes that have since been implemented all work properly, Blizzard has re-opened the game’s closed beta.

Blizzard Posts World of Warcraft Classic Beta Update; Oceanic, French and German Realms Announced

All previously created beta characters have been removed and Blizzard has made level 40 character templates available. In addition, the level cap has been raised to 45. This closed beta will end on August 16.

Thanks to your help testing WoW Classic, we’ve fixed many additional reported bugs since the Beta ended last month. To really ensure that these fixes are all functioning as expected and prepare the smoothest possible launch in two weeks, we’ve just re-opened our closed beta realms for additional testing of WoW Classic.

All testers who previously had access to the closed beta are now able to log into those realms. Characters that were previously created on the beta test realms were removed, and level 40-character templates are now available. The level cap has been increased to 45. Characters in this range will find level-appropriate quests to explore in zones such as Stranglethorn Vale, Swamp of Sorrows, Dustwallow Marsh, and Desolace.

As before, please use the in-game Bug Report button to submit issues encountered while testing. If you need more text space to explain an issue you encountered, please take it to our WoW Classic Support and Bug Report forum, which is now open for new threads.

This final closed beta test will end on Friday, August 16.

World of Warcraft Classic releases globally on August 26/27. Blizzard’s vanilla server option for World of Warcraft will be based on the final patch for the original World of Warcraft, patch 1.12 Drums of War.
