    I have made some updates! Im getting to excited! So close! And such a long time coming to this point! Hope everyone is ready for this! ~Stella
  3. Lol i totally agree with that.. but you will have another chance to cap if you want C:

  4. I didn't cap because my friend was like "let's just stay at x level and PvP" which was a mistake in my opinion. Should've just capped as fast as I could and spent the rest of the time learning PvP when I have access to all my skills.

  5. most defiantly! I got to cap already so i might be leveling another character~

  6. Can't wait for second beta weekend. Gonna use it to cap level and then learn PvP stuff.
