The reason we have +9 as the limit is so there would be like a "no limit" limit on the server, which i feel farm servers should have, But i will be glad to change anything in the favor of what the community thinks, after all it is you guys who will be playing it.
seeing gear is going to be possible on our panel, You may not be able to login to the panel right this second, that is due to there being no characters on your account.
There is no current ETA on the server, Going to open a "Suggestion" section on the forum, PLEASE feel free to drop by and leave your thoughts of the Good and Bad.
We don't have all the fancy events and what not of alot of the servers have such as death match and rival system, all those files where bought.
Drop list has not yet been assembled but it will be by the end of the day, along with the client being released.
We will open like a "free-lance" version of the server where when the server is up you can logon and do w/e you please, Stage before the beta i suppose.
