Das Tal is still a ways off from operating an ongoing alpha program, but the team is throwing a one-day test for this Sunday at 1:00 p.m. EDT to show off some of its improvements and even a new feature.
“This will be the very first time that testers will get a chance to try out the new small events,” the team announced. “We are really interested to see how the addition of these smaller, yet more numerous opportunities, change the flow of the game.”
The test will also show off new map icons and some wicked cool tree designs. Fairytale Distillery said that it’s continuing to work through a checklist in order to get 24/7 servers online for the PvP MMO.
The classic EverQuest progression servers have proven pretty popular, enough that the two servers are going to deviate from one another in terms of update pace. But what if you rolled on one and now want to update pace of the other? Starting on July 30th, you’ll have the option of transferring from Lockjaw to Ragefire or vice versa for free, ensuring that you’re at the pace that most closely matches your own feelings on expansion releases.
Free transfers will run until August 10th, at which point players will still be able to transfer between the servers but will have to pay money to do so. That option will also be removed when the Ruins of Kunark expansion goes live for one of the servers; at that point, you’ll be stuck where you are, like it or not. So get ready to move early and hopefully not often if you’re excited to be reliving the past slightly faster or slower.
