From the Dev site:


We have gotten to a point where it is time to update the public test server again (New Telon) so today I did just that. What you have on this server now is:

- All new world-wide NPC and Object spawning (still not a complete pop, but most named)
- New Spells/Abilities, with the following classes having (partially) usable abilities:
-- Cleric (level 1 - 10)
-- Paladin (level 1 - 10)
-- Warrior (level 1 - 10)
- Other class abilities:
-- Bloodmage, Dreadknight, Necromancer, Ranger and Rogue, spotty test spells :)
More spells to come, soon!
- Vendors and Trainers should be working still
- Doors, Music and Sound should be working still
(I say that about the above 2 lines because this is all brand new data, let us know if they do not work)
- Bindstones and Riftways should work
- Signs on buildings, signposts should work

And for the major feature update: We now have the beginnings of Questing implemented. Thanks to the hard work and mind-scrambling efforts by zippyzee, the Isle of Dawn has the following quests for you to try out:

    Go to Kiri Tentrees
    Listen to Kiri TenTrees
    Report to Sixfish
    Warming Up
    They Hate the Smell
    Go Train
    Return to Veteran Sixfish
    Drive Them Back
    Aide for the Hermit
    Family Tools
    Hobgoblin Menace

As an added bonus, zippyzee began investigating Diplomacy and as a result we have a sample of how our Diplomacy mini-game might work. Go to any Diplomacy Instructor (or Rin Go Tentrees in IoD) and give it a try. Keep in mind this is just a prototype, so please no /bug reports on Diplomacy.

Note, this is a massive update to this server so while I feel pretty good about how well we tested it, there still could be crashes or unexpected results. If the server crashes, stay calm and breathe slowly - one of the devs will get it back running again shortly.


PS: We're maintaining a list of Known Issues at the Dev site. Please do not report bugs about known issues. Thanks!

Just to let everyone know, we did a data wipe of all the players and guilds. You will need to recreate your characters/guilds next time you log in. Sorry for the trouble, but expect this to happen routinely as the developers work on the game!

Character wipes can and will happen during dev phase. Char wipes are actually a good sign - it means that so much has changed that to take advantage of all the new updates, the team needs to wipe it all and start fresh.
