Apparently, Trion has decided to keep Perspice to trial players only, to keep the noobs away from the rest of us, I guess. So we are forced to move.

From the forums:
New Shard Tag: "Trial"

Greetings!

With today's update you may notice that several shards have been marked "Trial." These shards are the ones that we will be using for future large scale Trial programs such that they do not cause undue queues on paying servers, as we've all seen in the past. (We'll roll more info out on those new programs as their time comes.)

As always, under our current Trial program, new players remain welcome to sign up and play with their friends on existing shards, Trial or otherwise.

If you happen to be on a server that is now marked as a Trial shard, here are a few things you should know:

- For the time being, character creation is disabled for non-trial users on Trial shards.
- Subscribers with characters on them are able to transfer for free to any of the available destination shards.
- Subscribers can transfer characters of any level off of these shards (We're currently looking into an issue prohibiting transfers of characters under level 15)
- Subscribers who log into a Trial shard will be informed that they should consider transferring to a new shard at their convenience.

For more information about Free Character Transfers please see: Free Character Transfer Guide

Ok I will transfer my characters and the guild along with them. Ill try and get it done on my lunch break so you guys wont get booted from the guild when you transfer. Looks like the guild leader has to transfer first.

Keenblade good?

I am debating if I should grab it. Not crazy about monthly subscription games, but I suppose if I can get at least 10 hours of amusement out of it in that month i may be worth it

Well I grabbed Rift. Besides being on Keenblade, if I want to join your guild do I need to pick a specific faction?

Also, can you make a trial account then apply the full game CD-key to it, so you get 30 days + however long the trial lasts for?

You need to choose Defiant in order to join the guild. Both the Defiant and Guardians have different starting zones and storyline.

I started the trial and bought the game halfway through so yea, you can use your trial time then convert it to a full account by applying a CD-key. Your free 30 days you get for purchasing the game doesn't go into effect until you register to it to your account on the Trion website.

Also, sorry I haven't been around guys, few extra things to pay for so the subscription had to get bumped. I will pick it up again once I am able though. Had quite a bit of fun.
