WHAT TO DO WHEN NEW BUILDS ARE PUSHED OUT
Often times over the course of the PTR Blizzard will push a new build out to the PTR.
The best course of action is to open the Launcher inside your World of Warcraft Public Test folder.
This may download a small .mpq file in your World of Warcraft Public Test folder then kick up the appopriate downloader.
Back when I was actively answering posts on the PTR I was seriously answering at least 2 posts a day when people were having problems installing with this advice. Also it's been confirmed by a Blizzard rep that's pretty much their preferred way to push out new builds.
If it doesn't work for you you might need to download it from a mirror
tuba_man on Apple test labs : "I imagine a brushed-aluminum room with a floor made of keyboards, each one plugged into a different test box somewhere. Someone is tasked with tossing a box full of cats (all wearing turtlenecks) into this room. If none of the systems catch fire within 30 minutes, testing is complete. Someone else must remove the cats. All have iPods." (
