    I just got message today that I am a beta tester. Where do you all play so that I can get in touch with you all when I get in there? I assume that servers are exclusive and that they do not mingle at all. All I can say is that my toons name will be Dulwin. I nothing beyond that. :)

    We usually start in the "Hamlet of Gwenmoot". If you get on, do a /tell Mongo because I might be on.

    there is only one server, only one world on that server, but there are several towns. You can easily jump from town to town. Gwenmoot is a good place to hang out for a couple levels, then i usually go to Justan's Rest and head west/southwest to kill grobolds. About level 8 or so i head to bandit wetlands.

    Always get into groups, solo killing is very slow and dangerous and the rewards are slim. Groups, even just 2 or 3 people, have a tremendous advantage levelling.

    I have one character in n00bieland now, Cade, he is a 1st level rogue/archer. I am on late, like 10pm central time, look me up as Cade or Cynan, but my Cynan char is on the mainland.

    Thanks for the info, the d/l last night did not happen. I am assuming the servers were jammed with 3k people trying to d/l all at once in addition to those that were patching.

    Well I'm also a new tester and I'm currently playing Luin'tel Uns an Assassin. I'm currently looking for some good hunting grounds for a lvl 13 and currently I'm soloing giant boars and bears for good xp but it gets dull after awhile.

    I started a new char but then realized my ping was 4,000. I promptly stopped playing indefinitely.

    according to the SB boards, WP has an extra laggy version of the server in place right now to help find the problem. it's extra laggy because they've added a bunch of debug code to help them find the problem.
