    Attention Worldwide Testers! The Beta Test starting 2/28 is designed to stress test the North American Megaserver. We’d love for you to join us, but if you have the EU beta client installed, please visit this article for instructions on quickly switching to the NA Megaserver:https://help.elderscrollsonline.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5836

    So anyone playing from the EU will have to change there set up to the USA or it wont work.

    From the patch number, you will encounter most (if not all) bugs from the previous beta test. Tips for new testers:
    - /reloadui is your best friend. You'll get stuck at the end of many conversations and this will take you out of it. Same helps, when your stuck on crafting, too.
    - The main quest is stuck at around lvl 10. At that point you have to enter a portal into an area, that is not part of the testing.
    - There is no level cap. Only that you dont get story quests higher as 17. You still can get beyond that by massively playing pvp (AvA) in Cyrodiil. Highest chars last beta already were 23. (Maybe even higher, but 23 was the highest, I ve seen.)

    Just as a reminder... Launch the ESO Patcher from time to time. Just because a beta isn't announced yet, doesn't mean they aren't updating the Beta version of the game.

    I am currently patching a 2.2gb update for the game. This is the Beta version, not the PTS version.

    I suspect another beta is coming in 2 weeks.

    I wonder if we NA players will have to do the same thing when the Devs want to stress test the EU Megaserver? Here's hoping! -)

    So as a test (imagine that...from a tester!), I changed my ESO folder's name to "Elder Scrolls Online (EU)" which was the reverse of what the European version of the ESO testers/players were told.

    Results: The North America (NA) beta version of the game is currently patching the whole game again. I have the settings for European (EU) server but it defaults to NA server.

    No worries, I will soon have all 3 versions...NA & EU betas and the Public Test Server (PTS).

    Now if I can get the private beta server, I would have a set...and a reason to get 2 more hard drives to add to my RAID system!

    Yeah...RAID instead of SSDs...because when I got this system, SSDs were still way over priced! -)

    ESO added another 4.9gigs of downloads to be patched. So far, this patch is equaling 21.8gigs original client + 3.8 gigs additional content + now 4.9 gigs additional somethings = 30.5gigs total.

    This means when it is done, I have to patch the EU version to get that additional content. I should be done by April 5th! -)
