We would like to thank all Realmers near, far, old, and new, for sticking with us over the last four years of operating the game. We hope you continue to find joy in playing the game, and we look forward to to continuing to make improvements to keep you entertained. Today's update adds a few items to the game in celebration, keep your eyes on the Event tab in-game for a chance to get hold of them.
Today we're opening up a test server that will be in operation for a few weeks, in order to test some in-development features. Characters and houses have been copied to the test server from Finvarra's Fortress as of May 11th. There are no gameplay related changes between the servers. From the game launcher, if you select Finvarra's Fortress, you'll be able to select the test server at the server selection screen within the game.
There was a fair amount of server infrastructure code that needed to be cleaned up for this to work right, so we're hoping that you are all able to assist in testing this out before we push it to the live server.
Please let us know in the test server forum if you see any issues.

We've reworked the way melee weapons work a bit, and fixed some bugs in the process.
