I'm not sure if we're supposed to be able to or not yet, so heads up if we are supposed to be able to copy toons over. It's disabled still. I tried the buff thing, but without /claim or some way to get a flying mount quickly, I didn't have time (Homework and scholarship hunting for next term, as well as a sewing project involving a 7 foot tall plush robot with light up eyes) I just think I'll hold off till I can play my comfy Necro.
(Not that I could have copied today. lol All my played toons are ... were... on Crushbone. [I still say the best option for all playstyles would have been taking Dark Age of Camelot's idea of basically keeping the servers as sort of an instanced version so peeps/guilds could keep their names, cross server travel would be as easy as a world bell (for subscribers), people looking for groups/guilds/raids or looking to view houses could search all servers, and those of us who try to avoid crowds could run off to the least populated servers. All kinds of win win... except for the already overburdened programmers, but hey, job security, right?]) Tongue

Now that the first server merge is done, is there an ETA for when we can /beta our toons to the beta server?

Are you guys patching the beta server after the main server patches? I'm just wondering because I tried to beta copy my toon on Perma and it says still not available. While I am having fun testing the beta its really not the same without our main Chars.

I will say that some of the beta buffed characters I made are pretty badass and don't even need a merc to fight stuff and live (like I thought I'd need). Once we get our geared toons in, we're going to plow through this stuff like it's nothing.

/beta should work on euro servers right now even without the patch.

It can take up to 30min to go through especially if a lot of requests are happening and a lot of requests are happening Smile

I dont think we will be getting the one shot from any quest mobs. Last years xpack was a level change and huge mit change to gear. I didn't see a huge mit change in the current quested gear just way more STA.

Just verified characters are getting copied over the script is pretty backlogged though from the number of copies so just give it some time to catch up

/beta works fine on european servers or at least on Valor.

Now it would be awesome to get a fix for Vista please...

Will sitting at the character select "auto-update" for the /beta characters or do you have to keep logging in and out of the game to see when it transferred?

I did mine at around 9:30 PST and it's still not there yet so I'm guessing they are really backed up atm.
