    Man, it'd ruin the experience for me if I participated in the Beta. Still it's nice to have. At least the DDOWiki people can get some facts in ahead of time.

    Assuming that druid class can be built for beta, will be more then happy to test it out and see how it goes before reincing my main into it.

    If druid isn't available to test out, i probably will just not bother.

    That's irrelevant.

    You asked who would want to. I gave one answer.

    Anyone can access Lamannia. They don't need to have any kind of "beta" in order to put things on Llamaland.

    Since the Forgotten Realms adventures are supposedly going to take place on their own servers and since there are lots of features that can be activated on an account by account basis, I'd be very surprised if the "beta" were anything other than access to some of the new features on the live servers.

    I am still interested in one of the original questions. Will this be a client like lam we have to load or what. My machine is 2007..upgraded with ram/graphics card.. but very limited in gig ...the reason I cannot do lam. Loading 2 clients is a no...3 is my computer packing its bags saying it feels like it's just not attractive to me anymore :P But serious can you let us know how beta is going to operate ?

    Yes I can read. I just find it funny how companies always make it so small.. I say make it bigger so people can see it that have eye sight issues don't have to struggle to read it..

    I'm interested in knowing how this will work as well.
    Will it be separate from live servers ? If so, will we earn anything for our live characters from participating ? The biggest issue with Lamannia, in my opinion is that nothing you do there benefits your live chars : people go there once, maybe twice; then go back farming "for real" on live servers.

    Will it be on live servers themselves ? If so, is there any security for our testing screw-ups ? I don't know, it could go from stupid leveling choices to bugs breaking our chars/deleting our items (Reincarnation bug found on Lamannia 3 days before U13 launch anyone ?)

    Looking forward to it. If I can help squash a couple of early bugs I would be glad to lend a hand. Plus get a early look at content and get an idea of new functionality; great.

    Wonder why you have to be over 18 to participate? You do not have to be over 18 to buy the pre-order. kinda strange. I am over 18 but this makes me wonder . Will the current beta participants have to sign a gag order type contract? Will they have their own forums like mournlands testers? Is all feedback gonna be hush hush?

    kinda interesting. Can't really see why these would be put in place unless Turbine did not want to keep all info under strict lock and key. If any joe has access to it who bought the pre-order before march 31 ,then you can bet your butt info will be leaked. So why the strict secretive fine print?

    More than likely an NDA will be involved.

    If you are under 18, your status as a minor complicates you entering into a legal contract.

    Any word if the Enhancement pass is connected to the Expansion, and included in the Beta?

    Or, is it tied to Update 14, and coming in August?

    While I did pre-order the expansion I think it would be much better to have an open beta. I think this would not only increase revenue for Turbine (people try then buy) but would also help test many of the bugs I'm sure won't be noticed before live in a limited trial. This just feels like a tactic to push people in to buying the expansion instead of letting the expansion sell itself.
    At the very least, my hope is for open beta week/s or weekend/s.

    Got to say I am very annoyed that you guys are taking the NDA beta approach for this considering that just means less feedback on a product with a set ship date not to far off.
