Technical Beta: Phase 2 is live!
Phase 2 is now available, let’s see all the nice additions we made for this new testing phase. I also want to share a bit of future acts progression, and invite you to share your questions and vote for the next video.
General information regarding T-Beta Phase 2
Is it representative of the Beta or the final game?
No. The Technical Beta has limited content on purpose and doesn’t reflect the Beta or the final game. Everything you will experience is still a work in progress.
What are we testing?
For this phase, our technical focus will be on the stability of the 14 international servers and on the ability to join a pending game with your friends. These 14 servers are spread to ensure that everyone throughout the world can have a low latency, don’t hesitate to let us know if you have latency issues and specify your region.
How long will the TB-2 be available?
The servers are open from November 22nd to December 6th, 2018.
How can I install the Technical Beta?
1. Go to your Library and right click on Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem to choose the “Properties” menu.
2. Choose the Beta tab on your menu, and select the Beta branch.
Is matchmaking already available?
Not yet. We’re still working on this feature.
Phase 2 content
All the content from Phase 1 will be available, except for the cave dungeon that we replaced with a graveyard architecture from the Necropolis.
Shields, two-handed axes, daggers, and pistols come back in the game. Although shield and gun combination is not available for this phase, all other weapon combinations will work.
Along with the shields, you will also be able to loot the new tank armor!
All previous TB1 content still available, including uniques. Since we’re adding new weapons and combinations, it only seemed fair that we add more uniques to go with it! Here are some of them, and more can be found in the game:
As told at the beginning of the news, you will now be able to join a pending game, see your friend list and invite your friends in your group while you’re playing. In addition to this option, creatures are now scaled depending on the number of players in the group.
We’re adding three specialists and one champion for this phase. The Beta Spitter, the Beta Screecher, the Animated Martyr and the Sadistic Thug will be joining the party!
4 skills are added in this version, and each of them has 4 Active Skill Tree options to improve efficiency.
Annihilation is the ancient Gaze of Ot-mah. This spell allows you to cast a channeled umbra ray to decimate your enemies.
Bulwark of Dawn is a new spell allowing you to heal yourself and your friends.
Arctic Spear if the ancient Frost lance, its mechanics have been improved.
Arrow Wail allows you to cast a rain of arrows on your foes.
The Archivist returns
The Archivist is waiting for you in Nowhere, he no longer sells skill books but Enneracts. Enneracts allow you to learn spells or skills, you can also sell them to the Archivist in exchange for Primordial Affinity. Primordial Affinity allows you, through the Archivist, to gain skill levels of your choosing.
A lot of players are currently working on various localization and we already have additional languages to propose for this Phase 2. Many thanks to CoTTo from wolcen-game.de, Vatjjar, Rindow, Alk0zAuruS and Destiny for their help on the German, Finnish, Japanese and Russian localization!
If you wish to contribute, don’t hesitate to join our localization topic to see what is currently in progress.

Our teams continue to work both on the Beta and on future acts. Here is a quick preview of the environments we’re currently working on:
Q&A for the next video!
Some of you asked for a Q&A on various topics regarding Wolcen and our company. We would like to answer them in our next video.
I’m going to centralize the questions on our Discord server and allow you to vote for them on the channel #ask_the_devs. The questions will be gathered on this thread [THREAD LINK ON STEAM] and with the help of our community fansites.
Once the questions are on the channel, you will be able to vote for them with a thumb up, and the questions that will receive the more votes will be answered in our next video.
