Assuming you play on US servers...

1. At the world of warcraft official site, under the General Guide heading on the left side, hover over "Under Development" and click "Public Test Realm" in the menu that pops up. (Alternately, http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/ptr)

2. This takes you to a page with links to download the client and copy a character to the PTR servers.

3. Click PC or Mac and save the downloader to your computer. Run it and follow the directions. The PTR is large - it's a copy of the game, so this will take a while.

4. Run the game from the location you installed to. It probably also put a shortcut on your desktop to use also.

One important thing a lot of people fail to tell others about installing the PTR.. do not install it into your current WoW folder. The PTR install should be placed into its very own folder.
