15 days to buy your Closed Beta support pack for GGG. The Current support packs will be discontinued and replaced with micro transaction items and possibly other packs. No details yet as to what the store will hold or what will be available as a new package deal in OB. The perks sold with the support pack will go away as far as we know and the KIWI pet in all colors will become extinct. Get your Kiwi before they are gone. https://www.pathofexile.com/purchase
-All characters will be wiped to level 1, names will be saved and all stashes will be empty. Legacy league will also be wiped. The ENTIRE server - all items, all characters will be cleaned for open beta.
*Demigod amulets from previous race rewards will stay (also they will be discontinued for a new race prize when Open Beta starts, so participate in races for your chance to win one)
*All Micro transaction points will be saved, all items purchased with the points will also carry over to Open Beta (stash tabs, character slots, kiwi's)
-Purchases of micro transaction points guarantee that "your" account with GGG will remain on servers and not be wiped so long as the game lives.
GGG has stated that after Open Beta releases another full character wipe will not happen.
