PTS Event Today, 10/21 @ 4PM PDT – Black Garden Alt Mode: Stockpile

Posted by on 21 October 2011

As if Ember Isle & Instant Adventure weren’t enough – we’re preparing a brand new Alternate Warfront Mode, Black Garden: Stockpile!

Join us on PTS Today, 10/21 @ 4:00PM PDT (11PM GMT) for a test of this new gameplay mode for Black Garden!

Black Garden: Stockpile!

You and your team must race to cleanse corrupted planar resources – control of the battlefield could mean control of the game, but you’ll have to work together if you want to succeed!

  • Orbs continue to spawn in the center of the map, each player can pick up as many as three orbs – but watch out! Each orb you carry encumbers you and reduces your run speed.
  • When carrying orbs – take them to an activated cleansing point, but be warned: Each cleansing point can only be used a limited number of times before it’s deactivated and you need to find a new one to deliver the orbs to!
  • The first team to 500 points wins!

Character Copy to PTS!

You can now copy your character to the Public Test Shard! Simply click the Transfer button when you’re at Character select on the Live client and select “Copy to PTS” – it’s as easy as that! (though there may be a few bugs/limitations we’re working out). We will no longer be offering Gear/Leveling vendors with the introduction of this feature (except when testing requires it.)

You will need to download the PTS client if you have not done so already, this is approximately the same size as installing the full game and may take some time. For more information about PTS and how to access it please see:

Have fun!
