As the topic says, I wonder what area(s) of the game people will be focused on testing and submitting feedback for. If it's the whole package, focus testing certain areas of the game like the starter experience, crafting, PvP, Dungeons, endgame content, you name it.

In short, what will your focus be?
Beta character name: Deadlock (if available)
Class: Cleric
Souls: Still undecided

My guess would be a group of different things in each phase of beta like for example phase 1 they only enable Pve or certain dungeons/areas and 2nd phase they open up more of the world and enable more things. That way they can cover everything but not overwhelm us. Less pressure and more time on us testers as well.

Will of course try classes and try find unbalanced spells and stuff, but also I'll focus on trying to exploit the **** out of the maps to help with that. There's definitely going to be a lot of easy accessible areas that shouldn't be available.

I'm going to test pvp aspects if they are available and then finding exploits so they can fix them before launch

I'm thinking that when I get in there, I will be going full on, one soul to 51. If possible, I will have 4 soul configs with 1 soul each to test the higher end skills of each.

okay people here is some info a lot of you seem to be over looking
THIS weekends beta Dec 3-6 is Defiant ONLY so there will be no guardian players thus no pvp anyway.
This is a lvl 1-20 test you can only get to lvl 20.
This only last 3/4 days TOTAL so this is a very short beta.

The next beta is Guardian ONLY and is still TBA on when it will be and for how long.

THE NEXT AFTER THAT is the only one that will have both factions at the same time running and once again is TBA on when and how long it will be.

Thank you all for reading

Also I am with Grem and Agrios in chanting EMAIL EMAIL EMAIL COME EMAIL EMAIL EMAIL COME EMAIL

Sider Kilans - Archon Warlock ?

Jarion Evarmir - Warlock Necro ?

If I get in on beta testing, I'll definitely be checking out instances and the world as a whole. I'll be looking for relative difficulty in instances and the necessity of certain classes in them, and in the world, I'll be looking at the general environment and finding ways to glitch out the world in my favor (later to be reported, of course...). I'll also check out questlines and such, to see how engaging the lore and plot are for the game. If my other friends who are planning on trying out crafting say it's good enough, I'll probably grab a few gathering professions of my own, just to make some money on the side, but that won't necessarily be for testing purposes.

Of course, I would love to test out end-game content, but that doesn't look like it will happen any time soon in the beta testing.

I like to try and see as much of the country side as possible exploring the nooks and crannies for interesting places off the beaten path.
the older games had some great little random spots you would just run across in the middle of nowhere.
most of the other games these days have more of a railroad experience to the game and running off the path gets you a whole lot of nothing.
here's hoping we have some life outside the quest lines.
