Hmmm, character data is a 1 kb hex file... makes me wonder if you can alter the values and get a character that shouldn't be.
Hmmmm...

Looks like things are definitely moving along with the Live Letter on 8/8.  Pre-order code registration begins too.

With head start being 7 days long
Woah, that's the first time I've heard that. Is this just common knowledge that I missed, or was it announced somewhat recently?

Pretty common. Preorders get early access for a week after phase 4 happens. I call shenanigans about it,but meh.

This image was taken from an EU ad that was circulating and almost immediately got removed, so take it how you will. The official word is that early access is still TBA.

Didn't you link a mini roadmap for the remaining time til launch that showed a week of preorder access before retail launch? Cell phone processing makes me lazy so I can't bother strumming back a bunch of pages, but I swear it's on this thread somewhere.

I wasn't aware of that image at all and I guess that I forgot or never paid that much attention to the roadmap. In any case, thanks for the information, both of you.

It was on the original roadmap but that path is skewed to hell and back. I think the fact that they pulled the ad might be indicative of them having to change the original plan, which is of course their prerogative. I think at this point people just want to play instead of waiting and speculating. Thursdays Live Letter can't come soon enough.

Yeah, the beta forums are pretty damn spammy and obnoxious right now.  They need to announce a date ASAP.  I didn't think it could become even more of a cesspool than it was.

No kidding. It's like they are so desperately waiting for the game that all you find is indiscriminate trolling, pointless inflammatory threads and just general douchebaggery. I used to find a few meaningful discussions that had interesting ideas but now... It's like they've been locked in a basement for too long and are eating their excrement out if sheer boredom.

Live Letter Details:

August 17-19th is Phase 4, Early Access is August 24th. Players who participated in Test 1 and 2 of Phase 3 get into Phase 4 on August 16th.

Servers will not go offline between Early Access and Launch. Fishing, is in fact, boring as fuck. Sorry fans of XI's fishing.
Endgame will be inaccessible till 8/27.

Arcanist looks to play kinda like an Affliction Warlock from WoW. Tons of debuffs and DoTs plus pet.

Not going to lie: level 20 cap and 2-3 days of Open beta is more than a little disappointing.  This seems more like a marketing move than an actual test.

All open betas are PR/Marketing. I'm disappointed its so short, but I can understand they don't want players wasting content for free. It would really make Early Access pointless otherwise. I'm digging the new job/classes though. Arcanist is hot.
