So, to try the test server I have to sit here and watch the downloader work and not get to play? Hmm, unless there is some real perk for going to the test server, I think I will stop the download and just play now. Since I do not have TV, sounds like I will go stir crazy.
Not being able to copy a character from live servers is a total mood killer. How much can one possibly test being a lvl1 in the newb zone?
Course, I can see the other side of the coin, give me an incentive to stick with one toon just to get up to what I tested. but, really, to be helpful with the testing, I DO need to know what I'm doing to make an accurate test.
Ok, that's me on both sides of the fence.
Very disappointed to find out you have to actually level a new character on PTS. Wasted an afternoon downloading the client to find out. And yes it's mentioned that there is only a leveling merch during events, but I think a lot of us considered this massive 1.2 patch an event. The two people I grouped with last night in newbie zone did not know there was no level merchant either.
So, to anyone reading this.. YOU MUST LEVEL A NEW CHARACTER FROM LEVEL 1 TO PARTICIPATE IN THE TEST SERVER. Now you know

I've been trying to get PTS server working for 4 days.
Downloaded it 3 times still the same problems.
If I download it I get the update button and then the play button, when clicking play it comes back please use Rift launcher.
The Download never puts a rift launcher in the folder, I have copied the one from main rift launcher but without any luck.
If you delete the rift alpha patcher and update using the self updating it says 2 more hours of downloading, and about 5 gig. the file deleted was only a few kb.
if you run recover it takes about 5 hours of patching again.
" We currently do not offer character copies to the Public Test Shard "
Does that mean we have to level up our own character for now or?
We currently do not offer character copies to the Public Test Shard; however, the character you create there will generally be available forever and during events we often create leveling and gear merchants for your use.
Alright, I'll get straight to the point.
Any goodies for doing this? Not that I don't mind testing something out, its an honor to be able to do so. But is there anything for my character for doing this?
I don't want to spend too much time away from my character (level 34, first character) when I only have so much play time out of the day. So is this worth taking the day off leveling?
