The Pit is almost ready to be opened, it will be fully opened next Saturday (October 13). However, we are going to be having an open testing period for it today, following the drop party (Use /dp ingame to see the drop party time).
The testing period will last around four hours and be open to everyone. There will be five types of low-tier mobs throughout the area. When you kill one of these low-tier mobs, there's a small chance of a boss spawning. The low-tier mobs are all under 100HP and are pretty easy to kill, but the bosses can have up to 500HP. The bosses also have armour and special abilities. We recommend taking on bosses with a group.
Normally, mobs and bosses in the pit would drop special items and tokens that can be used to purchase keys and exclusive items. However, for the testing period, all drops are disabled. We're looking for feedback on the balancing of the mobs and bosses. There will be a forum post up for feedback that you can reply to once you've tried The Pit.
