Test Server:

  • Treated same as a live server (must create new characters, no buffers of any kind, and no data is wiped on this server).
  • Marketplace works same as live servers (real money transactions).
  • We grant an XP bonus on Test server to help with leveling.
  • Test server receives content before live servers.


Beta Server:

  • This server is replacing what was Test Copy.  The Beta server may not be accessible at all times.
  • This server is wiped periodically, meaning all current characters will be deleted.
  • You can copy your Live and/or Test characters over to the Beta server.

Other Beta server info (subject to change at any time):

  • Buffers available
  • Free Marketplace
  • Grants Gold Membership (all classes and races available)
  • Grants free Alternate Advancement respecs
  • Claims are disabled



To patch and get into the Test or Beta servers:

  1. Start your live launchpad
  2. In the top-left corner, click the ‘Version’ link which will open the ‘Select Game Version’ panel
  3. In the drop-down you can choose ‘Beta’ or ‘Public Test’ then hit ‘Apply’ to patch the corresponding server
  4. Hit ‘Play’ once the patching completes



How to copy your Live and/or Test character over to the Beta server (two different ways):

  • You can click the 'Beta Copy' button on the character create screen to copy the currently selected character.
  • You can log in your character and then use the /beta command.



  • Beta and Test install into subfolders and both require about the same amount of space your live install takes.
  • Remember to set the ‘Version’ back to your regular setting to get back onto your normal servers.
