    Awuidor: The Adumbral Depths [Raid] and Doomfire: The Molten Caldera [Raid] will be opened to the public starting after the 10/31 update. Enjoy!

    did these get opened???
  3. Gninja Developer

    yup, they are open, but they are open with the same way they will be on live. No "beta" portal. So to enter the Doomfire one you will need to have completed the sigline and have gotten the account unlock key on /key (this wasn't added till yesterday so you may need to rerrun the sigline on a new copy to get it)

    The Awuidor portals are out in the old world zones ( think places with water :p )

    how old are we talking and is the water zone key as well or should just be open
  5. Gninja Developer

    Could be in any zone that's not in planes. Probably near oceans :p There are 4 entrances and each takes you to a different place in the zone.

    That's a lot of work for those of us that already completed the sig line prior to the key being added. I would like to test the zones but I'm not going to be able to spend the time to go through the sig line from scratch unfortunately.

    Is there no way to add the key to the beta buffer? Maybe with some way to check the sig line has already been completed? If possible this would certainly encourage more testers to run the zones and I have to imagine that would be a good thing.

    the keys will be account wide though right

    You only need 1 person with it to get the whole raid in. The keys are not account wide on beta but are on live. We need to make sure it works or no one is raiding on live when it comes out :p

    Do we need the key for the water one too?
  10. Gninja Developer

    Only requirements to get into the Contested Awuidor Raid zone is to be level 110 and own the expac.

    What resolve level is the contested raid zone? Raid 1?

    So, we have to search old content to find the new content to test and give feedback on? Well, here is some feedback. Once you zone in from the Isle of Mara the only way out is to die and revive in the library. Portal to zone back out doesn't work.

    That was fixed yesterday and should be part of today's update.

    Is the beta raid gear testing guy available in these zones or somewhere to test these fights?
  15. Monstuhr Active Member

    Has anyone else tried these out? I zoned into the doomfire zone with someone who had the raid testing gear and his resolve only went to 911 (I had heroic testing gear on that toon and ended at 901). That is a problem considering the T1 trash has 1492 resolve.

    I took my toon that had the beta raid testing gear into the contested zone and my gear only scaled to 801 resolve. Pulled one trash to test to see if it would jump up it didn't - the result was not pretty...

    We tried to test the doomfire zone last night and zoned in with 4 groups on the chance that the scaling buff just wasn't showing correctly inside the instance if you were not in a raid, however had the same result. Resolve for people wearing the beta scaling gear and looted heroic items was on average 770 - 1000 so we were unable to test any of the encounters.
