The next Reaper of Souls patch is going up for PTR testing later tonight, and there was great excite throughout the house. PTR: Reaper of Souls Patch 2.2.0… soon:
We are preparing to launch patch 2.2.0 on the PTR. You may notice that the PTR is currently available for download in the Battle.net launcher.
At this time, the PTR is not yet live, and you will receive an error if you attempt to log in.
Patch 2.2.0 includes migration to a new file system called CASC (which you can read more about here). As a result, the installation may take longer than you’ve previously experienced. We’re also running additional internal tests before opening up the PTR to the public. Once the the PTR servers are available for testing, we’ll update this thread accordingly and post patch notes. Keep an eye on our front page for more information.
We’re excited to share our latest patch and thank you for your patience as we make our final preparations.
Refer to the recent Patch 2.2.0 preview for details on what’s going to be available for testing, but there are new goblin types, new item sets, new legendary items, new bounties and exploration tasks, and more. (Not necessarily all right away, though. Patches on the PTR usually get content added and fixes made over time. That’s what the PTR is for, after all.)
I’m eager to get on and test some, but I’m also torn since I’m doing well in Season Two and was planning to go for GR40 tonight with my HC DH. (A fast clear on GR37 last night put me into the top 100 HC on Americas, for all classes.) Alas, testing duty calls, as I can pretend you guys are waiting another batch of our mega PTR testing articles.
