    Greetings! We’ve opened up a test shard named “Test Oceania” to test server performance on our new hardware located regionally in Australia. We invite you to join us in this test. The shard has a recent Oceania shard backup on it as well as test center rules. Any time played on this shard is only for testing purposes and will not affect your actual Oceania characters. Thank you for your time and we value your assistance.

    And this is a perfect example of a rumor spiraling out of control....the pet's had nothing to do with a server save transfer thing. Learn to comprehend. That was in talking about a very old exploit INSIDE the pet thread, completely unrelated. Jesus people.

    Sorry about that! I've corrected an issue with the database. You should now be able to see the shard in the list. Thanks for your patience.

    :D

    I'll take one of those neon orange Dread Warhorses that anyone can ride.

    You can get these by riding your normal nightmare to the entrance of Ice Dungeon in Felucca, then dying 8 successive times right on the server line, to a rat mage, while carrying castle deed and a orange natural dye in your pack and wearing a blaze tutu.

    As you die the 8th time, try to simultaneously dye and cut up the tutu with scissors. Catch is the scissors can't be in your pack, you have to leave them on the ground and access them in just the right spot.

    Anyway, after your 8th death, you will have a neon orange dread warhorse.

    If you did it right.

    Go try it now, no one's looking.

    Most Oceania players' reaction is pretty much the same:
    Also works with a guild deed.

    Oh, almost forgot.

    Then you need to transfer it while standing on a serpent pillar, and you have to be wearing the same tutu.

    So it's all for naught if the tut is lost, destroyed, or dyed in the attempt.

    First transfer to the normal TC, then to Siege, then to the shard of your choice using the famous Windows 98 "non-script scripting" exploit that I think everyone remembers so well.

    Hmmm...I'll stop now.

    Its not the pot calling the kettle black at all. While you may say you were using sarcasm, I'd argue that your reply was not sarcastic at all. The replies below yours regarding exploits are very sarcastic.

    Here is a definition olduofan:
    –noun
    1.
    harsh or bitter derision or irony.
    2.
    a sharply ironical taunt; sneering or cutting remark

    I'm having a hard time seeing the harsh, bitter derision and irony in your comment as it relates to what you were replying to.

    I also can not hear you so cannot tell if it was a sharply ironical taunt, or a sneering cutting remark. My computer does not have voice back with emotions and attitudes.

    So please, before you type, know the definitions of the words you are using.

    For instance:
    I can see how one might think your reply was ********.

    ********:
    –verb (used with object)
    1.
    to make slow; delay the development or progress of (an action, process, etc.); hinder or impede.
