Today, July 6th, World of Warcraft developer Blizzard launched a Twitter campaign advocating for players to vanquish specific demonic mobs and share a screenshot of the act for a chance to win a beta key for the upcoming Legion expansion

The tweets began at 10:00 am UTC, with Dreadlords being the first demon to be hunted by players. Next, the Shivarra were put on Blizzard's bounty, an hour after Dreadlords. Most recently, Wrath Guards are the current demons needed to be decimated.

The campaign is receiving a lot of community participation, with a lot of players hoping to be some of the first players to experience World of Warcraft: Legion prior to the expansion's release next month on August 30th

The latest expansion to the popular MMORPG adds the new area of the Broken Isles to Azeroth, raises the level cap from 100 to 110, and introduces the Demon Hunter hero class that starts the game at level 98. The expansion will initially include ten 5-man PVE dungeons, and two raids.

With the World of Warcraft: Legion alpha testing finished, Blizzard Entertainment is wasting no time in getting its beta testing started. The beta starts at 2 pm PDT today.

What is World of Warcraft: Legion?

World of Warcraft: Legion is the sixth expansion pack for the legendary MMORPG World of Warcraft, following Warlords of Draenor. The schedule for release is August 30th, 2016. The game will take place after the events of the previous expansion, in the Broken Isles -- an island chain near the Maelstrom in the middle of the Great Sea.

The expansion raises the existing level cap from 100 to 110, features artifact weapons for each class' specializations, includes a new area on Azeroth called the Broken Isles. It also introduces the new Demon Hunter hero class that starts at level 98. It will initially include ten five-man dungeons and two raids.

What will the beta include?

The beta includes a ton of content to keep eager testers busy throughout. Blizzard has noted that all the content within the beta is still in development and details may be subject to change at any time during the testing.

What testers will see during the beta may not be what reaches the final product. Beta testers will be able to create characters using level 100 templates, so they will be primed and ready to explore the newest content.

The new content testers can expect to experience includes:

  • New Hero Class: Demon Hunter
  • New Continent: Broken Isles
  • New Dungeons
  • New Raids
  • New World Bosses
  • Character Changes
  • Class Changes
  • World Scaling
  • Revamped PVP and Honor System
  • New Transmogrification Collections System: Appearance

These are just some of the features that participants will be able to explore and test during their time in beta.

Time to get busy

With such an enormous amount of new content, testers are sure to be kept busy. There is no NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) for the Legion beta test. Players will be able to discuss their experiences of the game with family, friends, and players alike.

The lack of NDA means that players will be taking screenshots, making and uploading videos, and streaming. The sheer amount of content that is in the beta test looks amazing. If this is what is coming in the beta, I can't begin to imagine what the complete final product is going to be like.
