Our test server is live! Please post here with requests on what equipment and NPCs you need to be able test our Foundry projects.
How to get started: When you log into the Classic client there will be a Classic Test option at server select. Create a character as normal. When you enter the training grounds it will prompt you to enter your character's name. After you do that it will level your novice skill points to the max and transport you to the next stage of the character setup area. Talk to the NPC Sprakki to change jobs and continue talking to her to get your character leveled up. Once you are level 90 she will teleport you to Izlude. Here you can talk to the Kafra NPC in the center of town to get zeny. North of the center of town are the NPCs selling basic equipment.
