The Mad Scientist outfit is a five-piece costume that will be awarded to any members who attend at least four of the Combat beta weekend events. To acquire the set, log in to a beta world between 4:00PM Friday and 10:00AM Monday (BST/British Summer Time) and participate in that weekend's event.
Around mid-September, the five-piece outfit will be awarded to players on the live game. If you haven't completed 4 out of the 5 required events (as marked by Yes in the table below), you will not receive any pieces of the costume at all.
