Thanks for the head's up information. I'm glad I'll get a bit more time to play this upcoming weekend.

 

I just hope they do not decide to delete the Phase 4 characters. So far they have said they won't, but it is subject to change of course.

Took me just shy of an hour to d/l the beta client. Im on a T1 wifi, if that matters.

4 hours to d/l? Sounds like your internet provider might have you capped or throttled.
maybe they want you to "upgrade', for more $$$ per month, of course, LOL

I dont mind a wipe after phase 3. Theres so much to do (raising classes and professions) that I wont mind if I have to remake my character.
They are also adding many things to the game after phase 3, so a reroll wont be a mirror image of phase 3 while (re)levelling.
