I'm guessing beta is going to be going away tonight or tomorrow. If you're downloading the full 18 GB or whatever it takes to fully install beta... you're too late :S

Copy your live folder into that beta folder, then run patch. Will be a much shorter and faster download.

Stop the download. Copy over the music and paks to the BetaServer folder. Then re-start the Launcher and allow it to patch. It'll go pretty quick. I would suggest that you create a level 1 character and let the Beta Buffer send it to 100, then see Oliver either in Mara or the Forge of Brell in Maldura to get tradeskill buffed.

I think it takes about 3 hours to do the whole tradeskill line. It takes me at least a day to do the whole adventuring line of quests.

Just copy everything, the patcher will update the beta files that are needed.
