Public Testing Realm
The PTR is a separately set up server used by Artix Entertainment to test totally new features. Originally it was used to test new PvP and stats functionality and apparently the relevant parts of the game were fully rewritten. The PTR was online for short periods of time, till the point enough information about bugs was gathered. The first test ran on november 6th, but was closed quickly due to processor usage. 5 days later on 11 november it was reopened for the second test run. After testing these features are to be integrated into the main core game engine.

Notes
  • They use two items, Scroll of Chain Lightning(max 9) and Health Potion(max 9).
  • There have been glitches where you will have 11111 of either Scroll of Chain Lightning or Health Potion.
  • The new pvp includes a general with 50000 hp who looks like the black knight, some brawlers to defend captain (or general) and two, recovers to heal the captain (when you defeat one the captain loses some power).
  • The Prepared Strike, Decisive Strike combo still works in the PTR, but the amount of mana regained is little, so the combo loses some of it's power in battle. You find yourself very quickly with out mana
  • As of 2/20/10, all daggers are dual-welding, Unarmed, Polearm, and Dagger animations are updated. According to Minimal, gun animations will soon work.
