Beta hype! Do you have an idea of what categories you have in mind for tester selection, @Darkrasp ?

With regards to tester selection, we're thinking the form will basically ask people to identify the area of the game they know the best, then when we're wanting to test a dungeon, for example, we can scoop up a handful of people who know that dungeon really well.  We haven't decided on the exact format yet, we'll be discussing it over the next little bit.  We don't want a form where people can overstate their knowledge just because they think it will get them into Beta sooner.

The reality is we will be inviting people not based on how hardcore a player they are, but by how well they know the specific content we are working on at that time.

@Darkrasp Thank for the update, do you think we can still hoping for Q4 ?

Great update, this project is just oozing potential! Definitely excited to play, hopefully before February comes around which can be a reasonable expectation I hope.

Do you think that when you get around to making the web database for the server you could implement the rolls and stats for randomized green items? Considering the values will be different depending on slot, rarity, level, etc. it's hard to say what's worth looking out for. Would really enjoy being able to see what kind of loot is possible.

Bows and guns use exactly the same templates, and though you didn't mention it, it bears noting that there are no crossbows in the game with randomly generated stats.

We're working hard and still hope to launch before year end.  That said, if it takes longer than that, so be it.  We won't launch with a buggy, crappy server.

Nice update, but its hard to get some kind of perspective on how much is left before beta etc. Might be hard to put a % on it, but is it possible to get some statistic/data or summary of that :) ?

Thanks for the update. Glad to see @Nogar and others help out with the db side of things.

Oh, and because you asked for it, all the random stat green gear is going into the game in it's weakest, pre-buff and/or post-nerf state, and will remain that way for ever.

I never asked for this. In fact if I knew we can ask, I'd ask for the opposite :D.

  We built some retail sniffers and Daribon has been poking around on the retail PTR (just about nobody is hanging around Outland/Northrend there, so no interference), and sniffing every waypoint, every spell, every speech entry, every bit of gossip text, every sound effect, etc.

This on the other hand made me excited.
