Anyone have trouble importing copying their account to PTR? I t just says upgrade for me instead of copy.
I had this issue too. I solved by creating a level 1 character, logging out of client and bnet app, then logging back in. Then it showed the PTR copy.
Others have said to keep making characters and switching characters until the "upgrade to ros" goes away so that might work too.
^Yeah I eventually got it by just exiting the game and reentering.
I haven't been able to get in game yet but people are reporting a lot of the stuff dropped is lv 61 and above so we cant even equip them without the beta. Kind of stupid, how are suppose to test the new loot when we cant equip?
To add to that, crafted amulets are not lv 61 required so we cant even equip our old crafted amulets in the PTR, lol.
I had issues copying my characters over too. The Upgrade banner kept hiding it. What fixed it for me was going to the character select screen and selecting my level 1 hero again. Then the upgrade banner went away and I was able to copy my characters over.
Hmm - apparently this isn't a 100% fix or anything. I also had to log in and our twice before above solution worked. I suppose I might have just gotten lucky.
I just played for a few hours, loving the much need DH skill changes. But definitely some major bugs. As Ras said with the lvl 61 gear dropping that you cannot equip. Plus you don't get any Paragon exp because your not a max level (70) yet. But you can't get to max level (70) without RoS.
Wonder how they missed these issues...
That said, it was alot of fun and the clans are awesome. Got to play with several other Dfans users. Without the clans that probably wouldn't have happened.
Well, that is the point of a beta. Some of the more obvious bugs might just be things that are on the list to fix that they haven't gotten to, but when you open the testing pool up from a few dozen (hundred?) internal testers to the entire world, you're going to quickly find tons of things that seem obvious in retrospect.
Llyria or however you spell her name has said that they're looking into the lv 61 drops for ptr testers and the the problem were we're not gaining paragon exp since we're at lv 60 which is capped in the ptr.
Hopefully they get resolved soon so we can actually test.
Maybe they still don't have a client specific for D3V with the RoS features, so they used what they have for RoS currently. And that's what caused the issues you described bernie.
Btw, do those "bugs" get in the way of testing how things will affect D3V? Legitimate question, I have no idea if they do (for instance, are items lvl 61+ all you get from mobs?)
You get a mix of 60's and 61's... so you can equip about half of what drops. but of course the 61 stuff looks much better. Should be an easy fix for them, so im hanging on to a few 61 pieces i found today incase they hotfix.
I think your right about the client. It seems like they just took the RoS Beta as-is and snipped out the Mysitic, ability to level 61-70, the new act, and adventure mode.
All the new skills and 4th passive slot are there and you can look at them but they wont unlock since you cant level. Such a tease! haha.
And since you can level you get stuck in this no paragon experience deal.
So yeah it is getting in the way of testing some things. But don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining, i'm more that happy to test out an early version of the game, even if it is a bit buggy. I didn't expect a perfect game on a PTR.
If anyone is using a crafted lvl 60 amulet it is now lvl61 and unusable. I figured this out after a bit and a wtf? type moment. Fortunately I had a saved junk lvl60 amulet which I am using till this get's resolved.
been on it for several hours and working all 5 old classis. First impression . Well its a somewhat failed effort if it would be this way ; well let me state that the loot 2.0 do seem to work on itse and the paragon 2.0 is actually IMHO doing great. But as is this do not alleviate the 2 big issue of D3. first is the lousy loot drop. Ok so loot 2.0 do give us better drop but what's the point if you cannot equip it. And mostly the new loot require crafting to work with it so player can finally be free of cookie cutter gearing and thus. BZ need to made the lvl70 crafting work not just for RoS but also D3 vanilla. The other is lack of end game gameplay. Adventure mode and all its are not there so players are back with keep repeating the same thing againad again. If that is the case with the final release I can see no incentive to it all. In summing it all up I say its good but not good enough. The game need that patch to deliver not just paragon 2.0 and loot 2.0 the game need the new content that wouldmade those 2 work and revive the game and that mean for now access to the Mystic and her service; adventure mode; and the torment difficulty.
