SWTOR Patch 2.8 PTS to open on Thursday

PTS servers for patch 2.8 will be going online Thursday if everything goes well. You can now copy your characters over to the PTS.


2.8 PTS Character Copies | 04.30.2014, 01:58 PM

Hi all!

We have wiped the characters from the 2.7 Public Test Server release and you can now safely copy your characters over in anticipation of 2.8 testing.

I know the first question to this is going to be "When is that going to be, Tait, you valiant Knight of Information and Glory?" so I’ll go ahead and tell you that we are aiming to put it up on the PTS this Thursday, May 1st (2014, if you’re reading this way in the future).

While I don’t have an exact time yet, I’ll let you know when I do. And this, of course, is subject to change and I will update you all when I find stuff out!

For instructions on PTS Character Copies, see below!

-tait, valiant Knight of Information and Glory

To transfer your character the Public Test Server, follow these instructions:

  1. Log into www.swtor.com.
  2. Click on your account name in the top right hand corner of the site.
  3. Click “My Account.”
  4. In the left column, scroll down and click the link entitled “PTS Character Copy.”
  5. Select the server and then the character that you wish to copy from.
  6. Click the “Copy Character” button.
  7. The site will display the current status of your character copy at the top of the page. Additionally, you can click the “View your character transfer history” link to see if the copy has completed.

    any idea of the content

    • Averzaath

      shouldn’t that be DP NiM ?

      • Robert Hindy

        And new GSF ships.

        And probably Part 2 of Forge Alliances.

        Besides that, we do not know.

        • Darth Marr

          i want part 2 of the story

        • Guest

          The new ships are delayed indefinitely.

          • Shaun Salisbury

            no there are new ships just not new ship roles

  • Brianac

    Hm i am interested to find out about this also.

  • Trogdor

    I discovered a hilarious glitch. If you put Mira’s jacket on Lord Scourge, it puts a bra on him and makes the exposed part of his torso fair skinned and textureless.

    Weird question – but are there any titles to obtain nowadays by playing PTS? trying to hunt down as many as I can, and I saw on your list that there are some obtained from the PTS, but do they transfer (and is it still possible to gain) to your live account?

    • Shaun Salisbury

      No because the PTS is there to test and fix things not for you to get titles from

      • Stilluff Fogg

        Thanks, friend, I’m guessing you’ve never read this part before in her Titles guide then;

        “These titles are rewarded to characters on the live server for doing activities on the PTS.”

        • Shaun Salisbury

          I guess you haven’t read the fact that they haven’t given PTS titles away in a long time because they realized people like you only come for the titles and not to help test things.

          • That One Guy

            BUUURRRNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!

          • Stilluff Fogg

            Nah, I’ve been away for closer to 2 years. I also love the fact that you jump right to the assumption that the only reason I’d play the PTS is for the title. It would be a bonus, hence the question.

            • Shaun Salisbury

              it’s simple you fit the profile to the letter of the type of player that gets the title and stops playing the PTS.

              • Stilluff Fogg

                And you base this on one post. I’m pretty sure your standard profiling is seriously flawed. Thanks for helping, though.

              • Shaun Salisbury

                all I really need to use is this quote right here “trying to hunt down as many as I can, and I saw on your list that there are some obtained from the PTS” that alone there shows your only care is hunting down titles you have yet to get that were on the PTS clearly exposing your intent.
