    At Midnight (PST) we will be doing maintenance to backup the current server, and then bring our test server live for the weekend. The main purpose of this is to verify feature parity between the current server, and the test server which will be the foundation for our upcoming updates. It is also to ensure that we know of any bugs before we continue onto the next phase of our update schedule. The testing period will last until Sunday at Midnight (PST) where we will bring back the current live server, rolling back to the backup taken tonight.

    In regards to the Saturday GM event, we will do it as we would normally (it will occur on 11am-12pm PST), and we will mail out rewards on Monday. We will also be mailing out Deathwing as it will be unable to be retrieved by players at the end of the month due to the testing period.

    As for what to test, players should play the game as they would normally and report bugs that they find during the test period in the bug section of the test forum. In particular we are wanting people to test crafting (at different rarities), mainstory quests, dungeons, Guild PE/Territory PE and anything else you may think will bug.

    Becuase this is a very early build of our update, there are a few knonw bugs:

    Few chat i ssues, mostly related to linking items or guilds
    Sitheran and RG may have lower health and damage than the live server, though this bug is in the process of being fixed.

    It may seem as if you should not log in during the test period, but this is the time when we need our players the most. It has been a long 8 months to get the start of our updates prepared, and we want to make sure that when we do start releasing content that it is as bug free an experience as possible for our players. By helping test this update you will be ensuring that any issues will be taken care of.

    The beta is now live; just launch your launcher as normal and it will update your client.

    There is currently a bug after updating where you cannot use the launcher, and will get an update.inf error on the client; this should be fixed tomorrow when @Light is awake.

    Here is a temporary fix until @Light can get on to fix the issue properly: REMOVED

    I suggest backing up your Dragon's Prophet folder just to be safe. You will need to use x86 client to get in game.

    Now that the beta test is over and I've gone over the information so I know what we need to work on I figured I would report back to the players.

    The biggest issue, which we're still partially dealing with, is learning just how bad the patching/update system for Dragon's Prophet is. @Light has some ideas to fix it, or to replace it entirely so as to not have to deal with this problem again in the future.

    The known issue with Sitheran has a bit more headway into a fix, as it has something to do with the mobs themselves, and not something to do with the zone as originally thought. @Haterslayer did some extensive testing to find out what may be the issue, and it's provided some valuable information into finding a fix.

    The largest issue in game that was discovered was that Dragon Evolution is currently broken, and that we will need to fix that before we can start working towards updates.

    Some minor issues that will also be looked into were found, but for the most part the major issues are the ones above.

    We will begin researching the known issues, and then looking into fix them soon and will see how it effects the update schedule I posted previously.
