    Ok, so I am not getting my vet bonus on test server. Is this separate from live? How does this work?
    Also I got a message that my instance will shut down in 10 min and this is 6 min before server shut down, but no updates listed here.

    Test server bonuses are seperate from Live servers. 20 percent per adventure/tradeskill as appropriate.

    Instances shutdown 4 to 15 minutes prior to the server comimg down for both Live and Test servers.

    Updates may or may not be listed. Depends on what is being updated, and if it was part of the Live server change or something seperate, or something for a upcoming Live event.

    :D

    I forgot one item, Test server actually gets a 100 percent Test server bonus also, besides the Vet bonus and vitality bonus.

    I think all the live servers get this, at least for members. I'm not sure about others, but I have a persistent 100% server bonus on AB.

    Well, yeah, maybe, but where do you think it was tested first? :cool:;)

    How does test currently work now? A couple years ago when i was more active on it, there was a test buffer npc, that auto leveled you to cap, equipped you with current BIS items, aa's and everything in order to test. Is that still a thing or no?

    You're probably thinking of Beta, which isn't the same as Public Test. With Beta, yeah, you got all those things because they were being Beta Tested before going to Public Test (if they made it to there), and were probably using your pre-existing characters. On Public Test, you create new toons from scratch to test everything, but you can always access them. :)

    It's also on silver accounts. So not a member bonus. I think someone just forgot to turn off the holiday bonus.

    My guess is that this is what's going on.

    Once someone realizes "the button" got stuck, we'll be back to regular xp and then I'll be wah wah about it, it's so easy to get used to more xp :D

    While what you're referring to was "test_copy", which eventually became the beta server, you CAN get at least a jump-start on Test if you so desire, with free unlocks of trial level 100 heroics.

    Oh, those are wonderful! I've tested those myself, and can verify: those tokens you can get from a very specific vendor only work to unlock the trial level 100 heroics indeed, the ones created at level 100; they don't work to advance a current character from, say, level 57 up to 100. But they also sell tokens that can kick a level 57 crafter, for example, up to a level 100 crafter...complete with maxing out Tinkering, Adorning, etc., everything basically tradeskill related. :)

    At first, I was like, "No, no; I shan't just level my crafters the easy way; dangnabbit, I worked hard to get my main Carpy up to 100! Sweat! Blood (or at least, outraged Carpal Tunnel)! Tears! I'm not gonna -- hang on; 500 Tinkering? Automatically...? Hmm..." So, even though I have more than 9 toons on Test, I went ahead (shame-facedly, at first) and got all my 9 main crafters their tokens and shot them up to 100, each of them. ;->

    The "extra" folks will have to do it the hard way. ;->
