Default Frostfell 2013 on Test

From the SOE Forums

Frostfell is active on Test!

There's plenty of Frostfell cheer throughout Norrath this season! Gigglegibbers and Frostfell elves are busy celebrating the holiday within the player cities, and encouraging everyone to visit the Frostfell Wonderland Village, accessed through the Magic Closets in Qeynos Province District, Freeport, Haven, Kelethin, Neriak, Gorowyn and New Halas. There you can assist Candice Cheriweth, Gardy Ex-Giftgiver, Mr. McScroogle, Queen Bunny, and Snarf Frostfoot with some holiday tasks, but only after you release them from their deep freeze! For those that have a talent for crafting, you can help Sogs Frostfoot, or gather presents to craft wondrous new Frostfell goodies for yourself.

May spend time putting formatting into the above to make it look more readable, but I want to get in and start testing before my busy Thursday afternoon schedule stops me.

It WILL take time for me to wade through things, so please, do not be one of the umpteen people who think today is a good day to spam me with tells, no matter how helpful you are trying to be. K? I'll be easily distracted, lose my train of thought, and likely have to redo whatever it was I was just doing. Fibro-memory stinks!

Thanks!

Unhappy Confused

I'm honestly kinda confused. Test Copy is apparently disabled. You can use /beta, but beta server is currently locked. How am I going to get my lovely crafter army from Unrest to Test or Beta?

You are not. If you want to help test, you'll need to make a newbie on Test.

(Test is a permanent population, copies are not allowed. The Test_Copy server, which was renamed Beta, is not available for testing right now.)

This one has a really short testing period, as it goes live in a week, and we've a chunk of folks running around like mad testing, so hopefully we'll give it a good shakedown even if you can't make it over. (We're already down for another patch to hopefully fix a few more things.)

Those who are on Test poking at Frostfell, make sure you're posting bugs and feedback in this SOE forum thread
