    Assuming the sever stays stable, are you planning on wiping in the next 8 weeks the server is in alpha?

    Is the alpha for getting the servers and the client stable? Or is going to be about adding things into the game after you stabilize the server?

    I don't believe there is any planned wipes, if there is no major issues i don't believe there will be any need for wipes but do not quote me on this as things may change.

    The alpha is mainly for players to get back into the original game and for us to test our back end system/stability to make it works for everyone.

    As bloodscar said the Alpha is primarily a stress test to make sure servers can handle the high loads we want to see in game (10,000 concurrent users/World). That said as soon as we get things stable which we're pretty much at now we'll look to open the flood gates a bit more on invites. On top of that we'll be starting work on implementing the early development roadmap. We've mapped out a lot of the changes already and Brad (Dest Locke) is flying around the world mapping out the new portal network right now.

    We'll be moving to the design development and changes/additions to the game logic phase soon. We already have artists working on a pipeline of assets and models as well as world builders learning the worldbuilder tool.

    Oh and some of us are trying to catch up on a dizzying amount of sleep lost since last Wednesday :).

    Any plans to load everyones' banks up with enchanting mats and rare ores so we can get to really testing everything out?

    I do hope there's no more resets. Gonna spend a bit of time building a city up.

    We're trying to avoid resets as much as possible but there may be a couple in alpha.

    We'll also look at ramping up everyone's starting resources. Right now the easiest solution is to give items to a users backpack on character creation. We've also ramped up the gains on resource nodes 10x roughly.

    PS: How was that like 100-200 player brawl yesterday guys at centre dungeon? The GMs were telling me about it sounded fun! :D

    If you do wipe, would you be able to give us enough building mods to build a city? I've spent over 24 hours harvesting just to understand the city building strategy and it seems that I haven't got even walls up!
