Thank you all for being so patient since we took the server down in order to give us time to prep the preview server. We ran into an unforeseen issue, which we will work around in order to allow everyone to test out RiF as soon as possible.
Please note that the RiF patch has not received heavy or load testing, and there may be bugs, stability issues and fringe issues. However, we'll be here working on each issue the moment it's reported. A further note is that we do not have the most recent DB tables on the preview server but are working to push those. Until then, there will be limited availability for rune and gear vendors, but the team will the our best to place them each day when we can.The Reforged in Flame Preview Server will open on Monday 21st. We will give you 15-30 minutes notice in advance.
Due to legacy issues when we fix a change or bug, it may be that we need to wipe the server of character data. We'll ensure this happens few (or no times at all) times, and XP and Gold values are dramatically increased - we will also spawn mobs that will drop massive amounts of gold and XP around safe holds while we can, before the newest DB is pushed.
Thank you for reading.
