The first closed beta event for Astellia kicked off in the wee hours of this morning. Players who have been selected for the CBT can log in and play from now through July 1st.
The start of the CBT came as a bit of a surprise with servers coming on at midnight PST / 3:00 am Eastern. This, according to devs, is allowing them to "identify and resolve any issues that may arise with the start" of the beta event before prime time NA / EU play hours.
Later on this week we’ll be sharing the schedule for, and the location of the Level-Up NPC that will enable players to begin testing the Legendary Dungeon content. The initial focus of the first phase will be to allow us to get as much data on player progression rates, and identify potential pain points in the leveling process for players. Keep an eye out for more announcements later on this week!
