You're now able to copy your characters to the Testbed in Pirates of the Burning Sea (Test server). This will save considerable amount of time, no need to level up new characters all the time!

Copying your character from a live server to Testbed will delist all your auction house listings from the live server. While you will not lose those delisted items, they will be removed from the auction house and you will be able to relist those items again. We are working now to remedy this issue, but we will not delay further character copies to await that fix. We appreciate your patience and will keep you updated on our progress as we know more.
Testbed is a really useful tool that allows players to try out a build before it goes live. The downside is that it takes time and energy to level up characters on a test server, and that means we don’t get as much test feedback as we’d like to see. To that end, we are introducing the Character Copy tool to allow you to copy existing characters from other servers onto Testbed. That means they’ll be ready and able to test the latest features right away.
Here’s how it works:
- 1) Log out and exit the game.
- 2) Log into the Pirates of the Burning Sea website.
- 3) Finally, open the Character Copy page and follow the steps presented there.
You can copy as many of your characters to Testbed as you like, but normal server restrictions apply to the Testbed server (including, for example, the number of characters you can have on Testbed, or the number of economic structures you can own).
A few things will not be copied over with your character:
- Auction listings.
- In-game mail sent to the character while you were logged out.
- Accumulated landmark unrest.
- Any association with a society the character has.
The Character Copy tool will be up for a limited time, so copy your character now and get testing. We have created this forum thread for your feedback on this tool. We appreciate your help!
