Hi all, I'm brand new to EQII. Have pre-ordered the expansion, and am looking at jumping into the beta to get a feel for things. <br /> <br />Unfortunately, I'm a little lost on how to get to the new zone. Upon making a boosted 100 trial character from the beta login screen, I ended up at the travel Spire plane with no explanation of what to do or where to go. I've read <a href="https://forums.daybreakgames.com/eq2/index.php?threads/welcome-to-the-chaos-descending-beta.586713/" class="internalLink">this dev post</a> about how to get started, but besides getting the equipment bags, that merchant didn't have a 110 beta buff. <br /> <br />The post also mentioned heading to the expansion starter zone to get that buff. Looking at the travel map, I see the Library, but I don't meet the requirements. I can't post questions in general chat because I'm a brand new F2P account, and apparently I can't use the broker (someone posted somewhere about getting a 110 buff via brokers) because again, F2P.<br /> <br />What am I doing wrong. Is it because I made a beta 100 trial character instead of copying over a character from the live servers? Or am I gimped anyway because I'm F2P. Thanks for the advise in advance!

I believe F2P can read/chat in newbie channel. Are you in game atm? I can get a bauble to you.<br /> <br />Edit to add: As to your question about being level 100 heroic, I've no idea. I just copied characters from live and or made level 1s. Someone probably has the correct answer to this part.

I'm not in-game at the moment as I've been waiting for the verification email to arrive, but the bauble (which I assume is the 110 buff?) would be very helpful. Ty! Character name is Taeyana.

I'll mail it to you. Will take approximately 30 minutes so hopefully will be there when you get on. Make sure to /join Newbie. I think F2P can use that channel and someone will likely see your question/chat.
