Does anyone know when the open beta will end?  I haven't seen any announcement from Blizzard yet.  

I'm thinking it will end on Thursday night or Friday afternoon.  They will need the weekend to prepare for Tuesday's launch.

I would think the last day would be Friday or Saturday.  That gives them 3-4 days to prep the hardware and such for release.

I really hope they get the next patch (which is due this week) in before release so it can get banged on a bit before the 23rd.  I doubt we'll see anything other than stability/security/exploit fixes for a little while after launch.

WoW website has the announcement and the open beta is finished on Thursday.  All the servers will be wiped clean so no one is keeping their beta characters for the commercial release.

Oh...too bad  :roll:  So now can whoever was telling me I was being unfair for saying blizzard was just insulting our intelligence with THIRTEEN stickied discussion posts about the character wipe get with the program? They never had any intention of leaving it this way-they just couldn't in a game with easy access to alts, mailboxes to send equipment and money, and fast levelling characters. It just wasn't practicable, everyone knew it, and they treated everyone on the boards as if we had the IQ of, well, the Battle.net message board posters.

Anyways, cant wait to get started for retail, I just cant choose a damn class!!

Hey koz-even if i go warrior I will definately have a mage alt. I know the class well, and can level one up very quickly regardles. I just am trying to decide which class I will enjoy playing as my primary-or at least "first" character-since I imagine with the relative soloability i will have two 60s eventually. Plus, two mages are freaking crazy powerful together smile its all good baby!!

It’s Thursday now and I just got done playing a few minutes ago.  I just watched and took part in a huge raid on an Orc camp; three full raid groups of people, a truly awesome sight.

Any of the other servers do anything like this?  I was on server 19 by the way.

I was in a huge horde raid late last night, on test server 36.  Holy hell it was fun.   There was probably 100+ of us in 2 or three raid groups running together, calling other horde players.   We went from the troll noob villiage area to the barren's crossroads and then all the way through the night elves  area.  Killing any Alliance PVP players as we went.  The big stopper was the sentinals (town guards) at the main elves town, (ashvale?).  Those guards just ripped us apart, maybe level 62 guards?  We had to regroup outside the town.

Anyway, it ended when 100+ Alliance players fought us with their town guards.  The battlefield was littered with bodies.  Just awesome to be apart of something so massive.  My famerate dropped a couple times, but the test server held up great with all those players battling in one place.   Never was kicked out.
