More About How to Test on PTR

Here’s some very important information regarding our closed beta and the test environment:

  • There are no region restrictions, so North American and European players can play on the same realm together.
  • Currently, there is no CS support. Unfortunately due to the fluid nature of the environment, we cannot offer our usual Customer Support backing – no item restorations, etc.
  • No “home” play! Because this environment receives very early game builds, sometimes data can become corrupt. In order to ensure we have a sterile area with little chance of unusable data, sometimes character wipes will happen.
  • There is no guaranteed uptime on the test server. Partly because of potential issues, and partly due to testing schedules, the test server may not always be available, or may suddenly go offline with little-to-no warning. We will do our best to give you as much advanced warning as possible.
  • Only Active Accounts! You must have a valid game subscription/existing game time in order to access the test realm at this time. However, have no fear – during different phases of testing we will be inviting a broader audience (many with little to no experience with WildStar) to test much of the content already on the test server.

Now that you’ve decided to help out and test an upcoming patch, why don’t you download and install test client as this client is not compatible with your normal WildStar client. Once it patches, jump in the game and create your character!

Here’s where the fun begins! While the early game experience is always good to test, sometimes our changes affect Elder Game content. Instead of having you level all the way up to level 50, why not take advantage of our special Cheat Service? This feature is only available to our currently subscribed players.

Once you load into the Arkship (your faction selection doesn’t matter), turn to your left and NPC Marissa Scarn will be waiting for you. After talking to her, she will port you to the “Core Test Hub,” which is just a fancy name for where we dump you in Illium or Thayd.

Once in your faction city, you should have another special NPC, Michael Scarn, waiting for you nearby. And BLAMO! With his Infinite Cosmic Powers, you’re now level 50, with 41 ability points, 45 AMP power, and 10 platinum to use all for yourself. But don’t run off just yet! You gotta get your gear!

Just past Michael, the Booster NPC, is “Bev-O-Loot” – a huge robot vending machine. But don’t fear this one…this one is special. It’s a vendor in disguise, and it’s full of loot! Bags, AMPS, level 50 weapons and armor…all waiting for YOU! Also specially discounted for the PTR (even though we just gave you 10 plat!). How can you go wrong? Wait…don’t answer that.

Bev-O-Loot in Thayd:

Bev-O-Loot in Illium:

Alternatively, you can also copy one (or several) of your live characters over to the test server! Simply log into the desired character you wish to copy, and within the chat window type „/ptrcopy“. You’ll receive a system message confirming that your request has been queued, and after several moments, an in-game mail will be sent confirming that your character has been copied over to the server — items and all!
