This problem is NOT limited to Dalaran. I transferred 3 characters to both the PVE and PVP PTR servers, and in every combination I am getting crashes almost anywhere in the game - Orgrimmar, Dragonblight, Undercity - and yes, Dalaran. I have been able to stay connected for maybe 15 minutes maximum on one occassion, but usually it's between an instant crash when I log in and maybe 2-3 minutes before the crash. It's pretty ridiculously screwed up.

This is typical PTR behaviour. There is a difference between disconnects and client crashes.DCs are to be expected on the PTR, especially when it is brand new and a novelty. They just mean that the server is overloaded, while client crashes mean there are game breaking bugs.

I'm getting error#132 critical error crash every few minutes no matter where I am. I'm just not going to bother until the next PTR build.

This is my experience so far with two characters on two different accounts. I quickly went to Ironforge with both for respeccing and guild chartering and then to Stormwind with one of them for testing on training dummies and at best I have gone maybe 10 minutes without the game crashing. At worst I would go a couple of steps. (For example, I flew all the way from Ironfroge to Stormwind without a crash... Yet crashed 3 or 4 times before I got to the training dummies.)There has been a blue post that indicates they are aware of multiple crashing bugs and will be addressed in a future patch. -I sure hope it is soon, it quite literally unplayable as is for me.For what it's worth... I have seen crash reports from Win and Mac clients that look similar noting a bad memory access.
