In this episode of ZTV News, Katealyst talks about Early Access Beta, reveals the results of her last challenge, issues a new challenge, chats about a Twitter and Facebook contest, and offers a glimpse into some of the coolness that awaits you once the Heavenly Test has been beaten.
 
 
Test Server Images
 
While journeying on the Test Server, trekking through distant lands full of wonder and adventure, I have discovered magnificent things. Fierce mounts that will do much more for you than simply give you a lift, faithful pets eagerly awaiting the call to arms, and stunning environments that will surely enthrall their travelers. Luckily, I have brought you all back some screenshots which are available on the Zentia Forums. While it isn't quite the same as being there, it will certainly give you much to look forward to in your Zentia future!
 
 
Serene City Challenge
 
As part of the continuing celebration in honor of the start of Early Access Beta, we will be introducing another new contest! I will be asking trivia questions about the NPC's residing in Serene City from now until the end of August. The questions will be found on both Facebook and Twitter. You may find that the questions will be very specific, so make sure you pay close attention throughout your adventures for your best chances at success. I will randomly select one CORRECT answer from each question to earn a Gold Chip! Get to know those NPC's, answer some trivia, and start spinning that Lucky Wheel!
 
 
New Heavenly Challenge
 
As most of you will remember, in the last episode, I issued a challenge to defeat the Heavenly Test before the end of closed beta. You all worked hard, turned in materials, and perfected your gear and in return were able to overcome the challenge. For this, you will be rewarded with a Blaze Horse - the incredibly awesome, very fast travel mount. However, I am now issuing you another challenge to be the first clan or guild to pass the Heavenly Test. For those of you who earn a place for your names on the temple wall, you will receive 500 Tokens for use in the Token Shop! This challenge will have a winner from each server, so there will be one group from Hare and another from Tortoise that earn the prize. Who doesn’t like free money?
 
 
GM Outfit
 
Because we value the opinions of our players so much, we would like you guys to pick the GM outfits. These will, of course, be the outfits the GMs will wear and will be rotated every three months. This time around we have three options, one of which you can vote for on the forum poll. The Outfit Option with the most votes will win, so let your voice be heard!
 
 
 
Most Awesome Community Manager in the World
 
On YouTube, Blade Wars recently claimed to have the Most Awesome Community Manager in the world. You can find my YouTube response here.  The Gauntlet has been thrown.

Congratulations! You have been invited to join the Zentia Early Access beta.
 
Congratulations, adventurer! You have been chosen to begin your next Zentia journey early as part of the Early Access Beta. You will be able to charge back into battle beginning at 4:00pm (PST) on August 16, 2010 and get a head start on all the action. Players invited to participate in the Early Access Beta will be able to keep their characters into open beta; there will be no character wipe - that's right, this means you can begin working on your permanent character as early as Monday! The immortals beckon…..will you answer?
 
P.s. Nenny is calling…She wants her dance line back.
 
 
Early Access Beta Leveling Contest
What's better than being one of the first level 40's on the server? Well, how about some handsome rewards to go along with it? The first 10 players to reach level 40 on each server will receive five Gold Chips to celebrate finishing their journey through the first 40 levels. Players must post a screenshot of themselves at level 40 in the Zentia Forums for verification purposes. Good luck!
 
 
Facebook Celebration
Join us on Facebook as we celebrate the beginning of Early Access Beta by giving away prizes to use in Open Beta.  You will receive plenty of opportunities to win Gold Chips for use in the live game. What are you waiting for? Don’t you want to spin that miraculous wheel of fate?
 
 
 
Heavenly Test Completed in Closed Beta
To all of you who sought great prestige in the world of Zentia, I issued you a challenge to overcome the rigors and challenges of the Heavenly Test before Closed Beta ended … and you succeeded! You will be handsomely rewarded with a Blaze Horse and become the envy of all those who will cast their jealous gaze upon you in Open Beta!
 
 
Gate Crasher Event!
The Gate Crasher event that took place from August 5th through the 8th was a memorable experience to say the least. All players received 200 Tokens to spend in the Token Shop however they saw fit. To fully indulge the players, we took it a step further and priced all items at just one token, giving everyone the opportunity to spend to their heart's content. As if all this wasn't enough, the weekend also gloriously granted double experience, allowing players one last shot to finish up their characters. We came, we saw, we spent recklessly. To top it all off, I fulfilled a life goal of turning everyone following the agile Nenny into a Chamber Pot; who could really ask for more?
 
 
New Mounts Discovered – Find Them on Facebook!

Zentia ZTV VideoCast - Gate Crasher Event!

Today marks the beginning of the Gate Crasher Event.  Help us crash the server August 5th through 8th!  This is the last opportunity  to conquer the Heavenly Test and earn a Blaze Horse for Open Beta.
 
 All players who log on during the event will receive:
* 200 Tokens that are used as currency for the Token Shop
* Full access to the Token Shop where all items will have the modified price of one Token
* Double experience gained for the entire weekend!
 
 
The Nenny Showdown ended up being quite a success as each server valiantly unified under a common cause… to dance the night away.  When the contest first began, things were looking rather grim for the Tortoise server as Hare took a quick and convincing lead.  But, it would appear that perhaps not all hope was lost for the Tortoise players as they banded together, shouting across cities, to courageously follow the agile steps of a dancing child.  Right before the event closed, a flood of screenshots was submitted for the Tortoise server as the nail was hammered in the coffin and a victory was secured.  It looks like the old fable of the Tortoise and the Hare certainly proved true during this contest - always be sure to not get too comfortable with an apparent advantage because you never know when the Tortoise is going to surprise you!
 
 
 
To all of you who seek great prestige in the world of Zentia, I am issuing a challenge to overcome the rigors and challenges of the Heavenly Test before Closed Beta ends.  For those of you valiant enough to accomplish this task, you will be handsomely rewarded, earning yourself a Blaze Horse and becoming the envy of all those who will cast their jealous gaze upon you.  The time is now upon you to make your name and leave your mark! Everyone who completes the Heavenly Test will be given this beautiful mount to use all through Open Beta. The Catch is, if you fail to complete the Heavenly Test then the offer will be void and no one will receive this fast mount.  So, heroes, what are you waiting for?  Start gathering those items and preparing for this epic adventure…make haste, for there isn’t much time!  For more information and to see a screenshot of the Blaze Horse up close, head to the Zentia Event Forums.
 
 
In other news, Tempest has completed Water Palace!  Water Palace is a level 30+ instance that contains quests, mini bosses that have a high chance to drop talismans, and the Tortoise King who has a 100% level 30 talisman drop rate.  I would like to Congratulate Queezy, DarkMaster, CLiNTN, Cricket, and Buiden on their impressive feat!  If you would like to see a video of their Tortoise King kill, head to the Zentia Forums.
 
 
Keep on gaming,
