Ooh! I love to see these alpha builds. Even when they are encrypted I still get excited. It just means we are closer and closer to a playable and datamineable version
Comment by Blakmane
I really hope they continue to keep encrypting all the data and we can have some mystery back into the game without having multiple websites spoiling all the new content the second its ready for download. Don’t get me wrong, I love you Wowhead but if Blizz can reduce datamining to almost zero the game will get back the wonder about discovering and exploring the world again.

I don’t use the wowhead website as often now, I use the discord webhooks.
They created separate webhooks by content (Classic / Retail / Development) feeds, and you can set up 3 separate channel, one for each feed – therefore, you get the notifications / info you want, minimizing spoilers. Was a little rough at the start, but lately they have really done a decent job to keep ptr / shadowlands stuff out of the retail feed. Cross-over still happens from time-to-time, but rarely.
Likewise, they have separate webhook search, so you don’t accidentally get ptr / beta info.

People asking for alpha right now : actually they are just in designing the world with 0 npc yet. It’s useless to ask alpha right now.

Okay I’m fine when it takes a while for the Alpha/Beta to hit, but I really would like at least some bits of information, the last one was at Blizzcon… I loved how the did it during Legion, where they posted articles on the expansion site with the class changes and stuff like that.

In this current world situation with most devs #WorkFromHome, I am happy that they push those encrypted builds once per week.

They will most likely release it when N’zoth is nerfed enough people can end the expansion’s story finally on LFR.

Anyone that knows how Blizzard works knows that they will release it for testing when New World releases it’s Beta for testing.
