    How do you install the PTR and get your characters on it?
     
    To access the Public Test Server:

    1. Log in to the Star Wars: The Old Republic launcher using your username and password.
    2. Click the Settings button (gear) in the bottom left corner of the launcher
    3. Under “Enable Public Test Server Access”, select “Yes”
    4. Click “Save”
    5. Now the bottom left corner will have two buttons: select the new button next to settings
    6. Under “Pick an Environment” select “Public Test”
    7. Click “Next” and you will begin patching on the Public Test Server*
    8. Click “Play”

    They did take some guild volunteers last month to volunteer for the possibility of being copied over. However, at this time players are not able to copy characters from the live servers to the Public Test Server, but we plan to include this feature in the future. However, any new characters on the Public Test Server will be persistent and will generally not be removed at the end of any testing phase.

    P.S. There is an incentive for you to level a character to 10 on the PTR: we’ve been promised a special title in the live game for doing so.
