    Recently it was said gu 86 comes out next week, I suspected it would be on test server this weekend, but no downtime.

    Does gu 86 not need to be tested?

    It will not hit the test server.

    Do people even actually test any more? Just seems like it's a place for total cheap-os to have access to a lot of things without paying for it and people that "test" just to find loopholes and exploits they use when it first hits live until it's actually brought up and addressed.

    Some people use it for exactly that.

    But there are some dedicated testers who spend time attempting to double check things and give meaningful feedback. It can get pretty tough to get groups together for raids, however, with people actually interested in testing.

    I remember just recently joining a group to tank the TT open world boss when all of sudden the group leader has us in a queue for ZOOe because he really wants the trinket. Dropped that group like a rock, lol. 4 and 2-man content is much easier to test most of the time, lol.

    Or for speed hackers to test out their new moves. :/

    Live server is the PS test server... at least it's always seemed that way...LOL!

    Seems like if there is no testing needed then this GU will be fairly small and will probably not have any big impact.

    Is there any notes out yet or we left out in the blind for this GU.

    All we know it’s next week (this coming week) so it might be a bit too early for the update notes, we’ll probably see it a day before it goes live whenever that’ll be

    Just guessing:

    Another phase of style unlockings?

    Adjustments to Augments?

    A Summer Sale so flippin' spectacular it requires a whole update? (yeah, I know, probably not. But a girl can dream, can't she?)

    Nope.

    I will be happy to test my Power Harness with my Scrap of Soul Cloak and Rao Amulet on Wednesday.

    Looking forward to adding another tool to my toolbox to help in instances.

    Small, yes, probably not have any big impact...hardly doubtful. We can easily guess two things in this update...Style Unlock Phase 3 (<== click the link if you're curious how I know this) and then there's the third artifact slot as mentioned by Mepps in the announcement thread for the Double XP Weekend. There's not much to test with a third slot, and any issues can and will be addressed quickly on live. As for style unlock, that's not testable at all on test server...so that's a moot point. After that they'll probably add some fixes and whatnot.

    It’s probably to remove the ships in Metropolis. If I recall, they need an update to do that as opposed to just a hotfix.
