This means we will fully convert the CATA realm to MOP. We won't keep any CATA realm anymore since we will move all characters to MOP but we are taking in consideration the chance that we will open a new CATA realm in the future if the population will be high enough.
Please keep in mind our development/content plan explained here (short version: content will be progressive like it was on retail - pvp seasons, pve content, questing, professions, etc)
A changelog with the THOUSANDS of fixes we've done on MOP so far will be posted in the following days. Thank you for your patience and support. You won't be disappointed
You can download the 5.4.8 wow client here

In case you didn't download MOP 5.4.8 client yet, you can get it here. On the test realm you will use the same account you are using in 4.3.4 (accounts are not working yet but they will start working when we launch the test realm public).
Here is how we want to do this:
1. First, we want to test Pandaren zone and level 85+ leveling zones and quests (with an XP rate of 1x since we put so much effort into scripting quests. This is not the rate we will use on the live realm, to be discussed later). This means all races start from level 85, except Pandaren which will start from level 1. Pandarens will receive instant 85 when they finish the quest chains in The Wandering Isle and choose horde/alliance faction so they can continue testing the level 85+. We also want to test world zones, vendors, spawns, creatures, etc.
Dungeons and battlegrounds / arenas will be closed for a couple of days until we make sure the server is stable enough. During these first days we also want you to test classes (they're not fully fixed and we know that, we hope you know that too). Regarding classes, in the first phase we want to test the mechanisms not the actual damage/heal/etc values. Those will be sorted out later (in case they're incorrect)
2. After a couple of days / one week we will open the battlegrounds and dungeons (and Dungeon Finder too most likely) and we'll start testing the battlegrounds and dungeons.
3. We don't know how much the test realm will take, but it will be active for one month probably (more or less, hopefully less), depending on how many bugs we encounter. We will also open a public bug report. Test realm characters will be deleted when we close the test realm and move to live !
REMINDER: THIS IS A TEST REALM ! There will be a lot of bugs, crashes, instability, etc. If you can't handle them, please don't login until we confirm the server is stable

Hence, we hope to launch the test realm in 2 weeks maximum, we're trying our best to make sure this is the last postponing !
