Limited Open Beta (LOB) followed the end of Closed Beta (CB) on 18/03/10 at 02:00AM GMT. This update was particuarly anticipated as all characters were wiped from the system in the transition, with the prospect of no future wipes, so players could play knowing their efforts provided permanant results. LOB began at 18:00 GMT on 19/03/10.
There were few updates from the transition of CB to LOB, with the most significant being the character wipe.
The name of the server changed from New Moon to Dragon.
Text on the area maps of Su Zhou, Lou Yang, Da Li and Guild City were "optimised", with appropriate spelling changes and capitalisations made.
As mentioned twice already, characters were wiped from CB to LOB
TLBB is giving players the opportunity to win 50 exclusively made plush panda pet toys.
To be in with a chance of winning one, a player needs to complete Chess and pick up the drop from the Ancient Chess Soul. The loot should contain the item Bamboo, sometimes 2, one bound, and one unbound. Once a player has gathered 20, bring them to Mr. Sun (173,146) in Da Li and exchange them for a Panda Medal. It appears that a player needs to simply have the Panda Medal in their inventory, bank or player shop in order to have a chance of winning one of the plush toys.
