The World of Warcraft: Legion alpha test is now underway! A small group of testers have already been trying their hand at the Demon Hunter, and today we’ve added some new areas for players to check out. Alpha testers can now explore the Stormheim and Highmountain zones, as well as the Halls of Valor dungeon. All classes except for Shaman are now available; character copy is currently disabled, but testers can create high-level characters using templates we’ve provided.
There’s no NDA (non-disclosure agreement) for the Legion alpha, so those invited to play are free to stream the game and take screenshots or movies. Please keep in mind that Legion is still in development—we’ll be making changes to the game as we continue to prepare for the upcoming beta test, and what you’ll see during the alpha test is not necessarily representative of the final game.
Once you’ve launched the game, use the Legion alpha template to create a character. This is located near the Enter World button.

We’d love to hear about your experiences on the Broken Isles, so once you’ve had a chance to play, please send us your feedback.
How do I opt in?
Once you’ve set up a Battle.net account and have attached at least one Blizzard game, you can choose to opt in to future beta tests from the Beta Profile page—just check the box next to which games you’re interested in testing. Once that’s complete, it’s simply a matter of waiting for an invitation.
Bit sad to see Dalaran "in ruin"... something I loved about Northrend's Dalaran was how perfect it was.
I spy with my little eye, a Cloud Strife NPC.Ahh, Aerith too.
I still want an item called Ravenholdt Tears
Thrall and Aggra, the most irresponsible parents on Azeroth.
It is weird to see the higher quality items and set dressings sitting on low quality walls and floors. Hopeful to see more updates as alpha goes along.
Is that Vanessa Vancleef? On the rogue hall?
Blizz gimme alpha and Ill start streaming I swear.
on #73 Is that Granny Smith? I can't blame her leaving Old Shattrath, what with that orc threatening her all the time.
That looks likes old dalaran? Just a placeholder for now?
I'm really happy to see Blizzard asking for feedbacks :), seems they are really proud of Legion... I hope they don't mess this up like last time, I think they won't because blizz already knows they screwed up
Thankfully for Granny Smith, I don't see Cro anywhere in that screenshot. That said, I STILL don't see any Green apples in her cart!
Let's hope when I get home I see a nice shiny Alpha invite
Rogue order hall looks nice. Appropriately dim lighting and lots of dodgy alleyways, but well-decorated and mostly clear of the filth one might expect in the sewers.
