Ooooo.... what's up? Or should we say what's going down?

While traipsing through Nektulos one quiet Norrathian morning, Dr. Arcana beckons to you, rather urgently, causing your concentration centered on the day’s adventuring and, more importantly, breakfast to evaporate. Panic and fear are evident in Dr. Arcana’s eyes, and following his gaze reveals the nature of both.

A portal has been opened, but what could be causing such fear? Take a trip through the portal into a world which has been broken into pieces, like glass that has been shattered.

During testing on Beta, here are some parts of the Game Update you can test:

    • Imprinted Memory: Origins of the Felfeather [Heroic]
  • 15 New Collections
  • 7 New Missions

Join Beta server today to find out what has caused this panic, and how you can help to mitigate any damage it will surely cause.

We also encourage sharing your feedback and bug reports with us on the forums in the new  Beta section.

If you're interested in participating during a beta test, here are the details about how to do that. Note, the content in Shattered Overture will be level 125 and you will need Renewal of Ro expansion to play.

To patch and get into the Beta server: 

  • Open your LaunchPad. 
  • In the top-left corner, click the 'Version' link which will open the 'Select Game Version' panel. 
  • Choose 'Beta' in the drop-down menu, and then hit 'Apply' to begin patching. 
  • Hit 'Play' once patching has completed. 

 Other Important Information:  

  • Beta installs into a sub-folder that takes about the same space as your live game version. 
  • Remember to set the 'Version' back to your regular setting to access your normal server. 
  • Players who wish to participate in the Game Update beta with their Live characters can use the /beta command in game to copy characters to the Beta server. This process can take up to 1 hour to complete. 
  • If your copied /beta character is not displaying on the Beta server, please create a level 1 character on Beta, log that character in, and then log it out. Copied character(s) should then appear on the character select screen. 
  • The Beta server may not always be accessible as patching and Beta server maintenance will occur whenever it’s necessary. 
  • The Beta server is wiped periodically, meaning Beta characters may be deleted with or without notice. 
  • Anything you do on a Beta server is exclusive to the Beta server, and will not affect your live characters, except when Beta rewards are offered for you to /claim on live.
