To be clear, this isn't happening from the live version of the Burning Crusade Classic Gold match but on its own public test servers. It's here that Blizzard evaluations upcoming modifications to the match, like the coming level cap squish (max level players will only be level 50, with the new level cap being 60 if Shadowlands releases) along with the overhauled new player experience. Butsometime after this fall, this event will launch on live servers--and if it is anything like what is happening today, it is going to be a bloodbath.
I'm not exactly certain if the event is working as planned. At the moment, Stormwind is absolutely overrun with ghouls that are rampaging through the streets and virtually everything that goes. The auction house, sellers, and even the lender are all unusable--that may be frustrating for players that, when the event is really reside, are only trying to go about their day to day company.
On the WoW subreddit, players also have found ways to attract the zombie infestation outside of capital cities, making entire regions of Azeroth uninhabitable.
Fortunately, WoW game developer Jeremy Feasel confirmed the zombie invasion portion of the event is only going to be active for a few hours throughout the day instead of all the time. I am actually a bit disappointed with that, frankly, because I believe it'd be fun to find yet another all-out, 24/7 invasion that gamers have to attempt to contain--something similar to World of Warcraft's infamous Corrupted Blood incident.
The Scourge Invasion is only one part of Shadowlands' pre-launch event. Players may also venture to the arctic wastes of Northrend to battle bosses and earn powerful loot, and there is also a new story quest to test .
If you're a WoW subscriber, you can check all of this out now by following these steps to get the public test server. Otherwise, you can wait until the event necessarily launches sometime in the forthcoming months.
Since publishing our initial story, YouTuber and Reddit user'KokushiGG' has posted a new movie showing off Ray Traced Shadows in the new zones in the expansion. You'll find the video down below. Like yesterday's screenshots, we can see the gap in Shadows is quite minimal with the newest feature enabled. Enabling Ray Traced Shadows, however, does buy TBC Classic Gold appear to greatly affect performance with FPS dropping from 120FPS to 60FPS in some cases.
