Wow ptr stuck on updating setup files
Copying characters is a one-way operation: You will be copying your character from the real server you play on to the PTR, as it was when you last logged out.
What you do on the PTR has no effect on your real character on the live realms.
The most common errors posted on the PTR forum are caused by people not following the bolded instructions. New for 3.3.5 PTR: Players MUST copy a character to the PTR before they will be able to log in to the client.
To actually copy a character, go to the character copy page and follow the instructions.
To use premades, you must have updated your account to Wrath of the Lich King at least 6 weeks before the PTR opened!
HOW TO INSTALL THE PTR IF YOU HAVE A PTR FOLDER FROM LAST TIME SCROLL DOWN IF INSTALLING FOR THE FIRST TIME: This is copy and pasted from last content patch we had. Please note I don't know what all the patch file names are as mirrors aren't up yet for me to check against.
Make sure you are not playing Wo W when attempting to copy your character.
Make sure you choose a realm that fits your play style, as there are both Pv P and Pv E test realms.
