The Public Test Server (or PTS for short) is a server that can be accessed by getting to level 20 on any class. Inside the PTS you will be able to test features coming in the next patch as well as being able to buy some items in the shop for free. Progress made in the PTS will not carry over to Live.
Though all players have unlimited funds on the server, not all items in the store are able to be purchased. For example, Chaos Chests are not allowed to be purchased as they may allow players to see what loot is in the chests for that week. Most packs are also blocked; however, Dragon Coins, Dragon Eggs, Mounts, Costumes, Wings, Flasks and Emblems and a few other items are all available. Some newly implemented packs that are not yet available on Live can also be purchased before the official release.
The player MUST have at least one character at level 20 to access the PTS.
If you have not met this requirement, the glyph launcher will show an error:
You don't have the right entitlements to play this game (Error# 2028)
Note: In some cases, the player will need to copy the normal server files from the Live Server folder to the PTS Server folder. (YouTube video on how to copy the files: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAjvSoZ7ppk)
