Creating a character on the Public Test Realm (PTR)

Creating a character on the Public Test Realm (PTR)  | read this item

Poyzon has created this guide which should help you create a character on the Public Test Realm (PTR) and download the PTR client so that you can play.

  1. Go to World of Warcraft Community Site
  2. On the left side of the page, click on Account Management.
  3. Log in, if prompted.
  4. Accept the Terms of Use Agreement, if prompted.
  5. Choose your game account to manage, if prompted (you will only see this if you have multiple WoW accounts merged with a single BNet account)
  6. Log in to BNet, if prompted.
  7. Look for a link titled PTR Character Copy (should be in the middle column of the page under Free Services). Click it.
  8. Choose a WoW account, if prompted. (You will only see this if you have multiple WoW accounts merged with a single BNet account)
  9. Choose to either Copy Your Character (if you want to use your own) or Copy Premade Character (if you want a max level character with high level raid dungeon equipment).
  10. Choose one of the available characters by clicking Copy Character next to the one you want.
  11. Choose the realm you want to copy the character to. (As of this guide, Anasterian (PvP) and Broxigar (PvE) are available).
  12. Click the Continue button.
  13. Read the disclaimers and click Yes, Copy Me!
  14. At this point you may see a Character Copy Successful! message. From here you can copy another character or finish. If you don’t see this message, you’re probably in a queue to have your character copied over.
  15. If you click Finish, you will be taken to a page where you can download the client.
  16. Choose PC or Mac for your download.
  17. Save the install program to your drive and run it.
  18. Incomplete/Unconfirmed: I haven’t verified the following, so if someone wants to do some leg work and add a reply with the next steps, I’ll update this guide.
    • Install the PTR version (I’m guessing to a folder separate from your normal WoW installation).
    • When setup is complete, run the PTR version of WoW and log in.
    • If you have recently changed your password on your account, you might have to use the old password.

What is multiboxing?

Multiboxing is a term used to denote one user playing multiple accounts simultaneously. Typically you will have 1 player controlling multiple characters at the same time.

For example, in World of Warcraft, 1 person may be controlling 5 Shamans at the same time.
