Here are PTR specific changes applied;
  • You can now choose level 60, 65 or 70 at the NPC (thanks to Robinsch)
  • You can now get any profession (thanks to Robinsch)
  • New players will from now start in front of these NPCs
  • A crash cause has been fixed.

Nostalrius Staff.

Great update! One small question: wouldn't it be a good idea to have the player receive their faction's 100% mount spawned in their back, alongside those Primal Mooncloth Bags? Since they all spawn at either IF or Orgrimmar now, why have them go all the way back to their own capital cities to buy them, instead of running straight towards Outland?
Also, now that you can opt to instantly hit 70, why not have the mount vendors sell the BG Marks of Honor for free again?

Much needed update, but still lacking

Selecting a profession seems to set your character to level 0, crashing the game client and permanantly disabling the character.

Horde characters also seem to be spawning below the world in EPL

yes creating a new character now is extremely painful as horde:

1) walk through plaguelands as lvl 1 to the zeppelin/orgrimmar to level up
2) walk to your native capital to obtain a mount (and trainer, if you're a paladin)

it was much better when blood elves started in their actual starting zone (and lvl 60).

also horde paladins don't get any lvl 58 pvp gear. they can get lightforge. yay. making it even more painful to test anything on lvl 70, because the gear is terrible.

i do fairly ok with my lvl 58 pvp gear but it's still very annoying to not be able to buy battle ground marks. i don't see the problem with them being free since lvl 70 is now on the NPC anyway. there is no reason to exploit them.

i cast any spells on 70 i go oom instantly because my gear is so low level.

When choosing blacksmithing it teaches us alchemy for some reason.
