Bug reports:

You can report potential bugs on forum in the appropriate section. Please consider if it is really a  bug and if it wasn’t already reported

Please keep in mind, that this is a BETA test and unexpected and unannounced restarts may occur based on needs of GMs and testers.

We ask all BETA test participants to really focus on testing and not to bother GMs with unnecessary requests and questions. 

We thank everyone for helping us finetune the live server launch.

In response to players' requests, we have modified static spawns of WBs. There was also a change in the 1st and 2nd class transfer prices in the adena. For details, see section "About server".
