The third phase race was a killer… not spent that many hours in PFO in a week in a long time…. or left so many husks for a while.

Aw, you're making me blush smile

Could you remind me what is needed to be able to test things on Zog? I haven't been as interested before but with the alchemist role I am interested.

The first thing you need is access permission. If you have that already, you'll see a section called Test Server on your Account page with a link for downloading the Test Server Client. That will install a separate copy of the game on your machine that will connect to Zog instead of Live. If you don't have access yet, just write to customer.support@pathfinderonline.com and I'll get you set up.

We haven't quite worked through how to keep your characters activated on Zog, but for the moment you can play in Free Trial Mode. We'll get that sorted out before the Alchemist goes up on Zog. I can also set you up with XP, achievements, items, that kind of thing, just again write to customer.support@pathfinderonline.com and we'll arrange a time to meet on Zog. I can also reactivate settlements or stock up settlement vaults, that kind of thing, just send in a request.

Well, you actually got a taste of the Alchemists in Seekers from the Citadel whenever you ran into mobs that looked empty-handed and throwing things at you for their attacks. They were using NPC variants of some planned Alchemist attacks (their numbers get adjusted to act like they just use unlimited average ammo).

For the full Alchemists, I had the bulk of the initial content work done before needing to pull it out of the build. I expect it to take another week or two to reintegrate all that content and finish up a couple loose ends. That's when things get trickier, because this is the first complete Role I've added and I'm not quite sure what I'm likely to find I've done wrong, or forgotten to do, once testing starts. There are also a couple small programming tasks that need doing, but nothing too complicated. Finally, I suspect the Alchemists will need a decent amount of time on Zog to get feedback and iterate on them before moving them to Live.

I'm hoping that all translates into late January or early February to officially release them in OE 2.

The Eternal Youth Sequences have all now stopped, leaving whatever escalation was running in each hex to finish up naturally and then be followed by the usual fallow time before being replaced by a random escalation. That means there's still one Seekers from the Citadel out there, along with two Over the Crowns, plus the remaining Nhur Athemon Sequences.

Looks like you missed one from the list.
Fort Ouroboros 4-4-4: was likely between Duergar and Elementals when you posted.

Good catch, I'll make sure they're in the next one, along with everyone else.
