I'm so excited about the new expansion! Does anyone know when Beta testing will open up and how to apply for it? This is my first MMO so I'm kinda new to these things, but would really love to be a part of beta testing and feedback on it.

Aren't we still beta testing EoF? Or did that change magically overnight?

I beta tested this game before launch and a list of other games and expansions.   I would be very interested in beta testing this too.   I will be watching for the information.   <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

My guess is that beta will start some time in Aug.(wich is about when EoF Beta opened) wich would put the sign ups in July. Also correct me if I am wrong but alot of times they hand out beta invites durring Fan Fair... atleast for latter beta when they are starting in on the Stress Test phase.

I'd definately interested in beta testing this expansion as well. I've never been lucky enough to get in on an EQ or EQ2 beta but have beta tested many other mmorpg's over the years.

Ya lets see if i can manage beta this time through <img src="/smilies/908627bbe5e9f6a080977db8c365caff.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> lol

Next time please use the astalavista translator.

Well. Beta tested KoS... Was ok... Beta tested EoF... Had a blast. If RoK is going to be anything like EoF then I really can't wait for a chance to beta-test it.

I can't wait! This sounds like it will be the biggest and best expansion for EQ1 or EQ2 so they will need great beta testers (like me <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />).

When I saw RoK come out, I immediately wanted to beta test.  Then I realized since I'm a software tester, maybe I should see if there's any real positions available for testing EQ2.  I looked, and it appears that only positions are available in San Diego, and none in the EQ2 department for testing.  <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />  Oh well, I'll just hope that being a software tester will get me into the beta sooner.

<p>Does anyone know anything about the beta keys that are supposed to be handed out to Fan Faire attendees?  Is this something you actually have to pick up physically or is it something that is e-mailed out or what?  Does everyone get one, is it first-come first-serve, or is it random/lottery?  Also, are these beta keys going to be valid for RoK beta???</p>

Or if I promise to kill my grass to spell out something to promote it? Ah... I really hope I get in this beta. My new prayer at night will have something to do with the ones I love and health and blah blah .. and being in this beta. PLEASE LET ME IN, EH! I bought your huge Sony Bravia TV!!! I am a devoted customer!! I love you!! Please pick me!!!</p><p>I'll follow up when I see they are starting to accept folks for it. I'm actually not a lunatic. But this thrills me. </p>

 When the actual beta starts, then you can start asking about keys. It is not in beta, they will announce when it is and how people can sign up. It will probably be late september.

So want into the beta for this!  As if I didn't lurk around these boards looking for info enough...But no one's asked the big question yet:How are they going to kill our house cats this time?

I am patiently waiting too and want to beta test it.   I wish they give at least an estimated start date.
