Everyone that pre-orders The Broken Mirror gets immediate access to the beta server once it is available. Playing The Broken Mirror on the beta server also has perks for your live server accounts! There is more information coming soon about the rewards players will be able to earn by testing expansion content on beta.

Here is some information to help you get started in Beta:

How to provide testing feedback:

Use the /bug command in game to open a window and submit information. Include as much information as you can about the problem so that we can reproduce the issue.
Out of game, issues can be reported via the Daybreak Issue Tracker.
Post additional feedback in The Broken Mirror Beta Forums (Note: You have to be active in the beta to be able to post on these forums)

How to set up a test character for beta:

We want people to be able to test the content with a variety of classes and levels. To beta buff, use this command on a level 1 character: /betabuff <level> <class>

For example:

/betabuff 105 necromancer

How to copy your character over to the Beta server:

Log in to your character on your live server and then type the /beta command.
Characters flagged for beta will be copied periodically (typically every morning).
To patch and get into the Beta servers:

Use the beta launcher.
If you don’t already have the beta launcher, you can get it here

Other Important Information:

Beta installs into a separate folder that takes about the same space as your live game version.
The Beta server may not be accessible at all times, as patching occurs when it is necessary.
The Beta server is wiped periodically, meaning beta characters may be deleted with or without notice.

We look forward to hearing your feedback about The Broken Mirror and seeing you on the beta server!

Pre-ordering gives you immediate access to The Broken Mirror beta server and Shroud of the Bokon, a special illusion item. If you haven’t already pre-ordered The Broken Mirror, you can do so here.

We need a new forum set up for this expansion and everybody post info as you get it. Such as traveling info, spells, tasks, etc. Or websites with the info.

pretty sad indicator of the state of the game when the entire player base is invited to the beta

Well, things change the same way is not always the best way. Having more people in beta from the start and doing a focused daily activity sounds like a good thing to me.It's also not "everyone, it's the first time early access was available for anyone that wanted to shell out for the expansion, sounds like a good idea since those are the people supporting the game. Hell that dude that quit playing who used to do guides "Rasper" tried to get them to put him into the beta for free and they told him to f'off basically. Which is to me a good thing :) I've been invited to the last few betas and sadly since I don't really have that much game time all I did was kill stuff trying to get tokens for the goodie handout, this time you actually only get tokens for actually testing stuff, another good thing even though it means I have even less a shot at said goodies.
