PTS has some utility terminals and vendors that allow you to very quickly create a character, get it to level 70, get geared, and get into the GotM operation. Here's the general flow:

TLDR Quick Start Guide:
  1. Create a New Character
  2. Use an "Odessen Teleporter" terminal to transport your character to Odessen.
    • There are Odessen Teleporters on all of the starter planets, located just a few seconds' run out of your starting instances. They're just sort of plopped down into the middle of the path, so hopefully they're not too hard to spot
  3. Click on the "Level Booster" terminal. This will set your character to level 70, and give you 500,000 credits.
    • If you need more cash, just keep clicking for 500,000 credits a pop!
  4. Use the various PTS vendors located at the Odessen Landing to gear up your character as you see fit. The following vendors are available:
    • Tier 1 Artifact Gear (230)
    • Tier 2 Artifact Gear (234)
    • Tier 3 Artifact Gear (240)
    • Tier 4 Artifact Gear (248)
    • Tier 4 Artifact Components (248 Mods / Enhancements / Crystals / Barrels / Hilts)
    • Augments (228/236/240) and Kits (Mk10)
    • Stims, Adrenals, Medpacks
    • Grenades
  5. Walk up to the phase gate at the end of the Lightbridge to Nowhere at the Odessen Landing to enter the Gods from the Machine operation.

See you on PTS!

Hey Matt,
In the livestream you guys said that MM GOTM is balanced around at least 252 gear. Are you gonna make that available on the PTS?

They did say that, they also said that they wanted data of how people were performing with 248 gear.

So go in there with augmented 248.

So I take it that PTS character copy is *not* enabled this time around?

Getting the exact same error, that "You do not meet the requirements" error. Not sure if intentional or not, but now we cannot buy augments.
