As soon as i saw the name Testificate", i knew that it must have ment something in some other launguage. I went to work immediatly. First i treid Swedish, but nothing. Then latin. In Latin "Testificate" means "Witnessed". In italian, it means "testify". I just tought id share this. If i find out it means something else, like an easter egg of sorts, il post it here.

I thought it was regarding the testicle-like nose of the NPCs...

I like them, and although these ARE supposed to be the priests I don't think it'll end up having had anything to do with testifying or witnessing... it's possible, but I'd assumed it was just a silly name with the word test in it.

Albuquerque! See, I can do it too.
Snorkel!



On topic though, maybe it's just a word someone made up (or the Italian translation of "testify")

Same here.
Attention, retards: "just ignore what you don't like", "just play 1.7.3", "just play creative", and "just quit" are NOT valid solutions. If you don't understand why, then you don't understand the issue at all, and need to STFU. Get it?

Seriously noone gets the name Testificate?


It's dressed like a monk...

it's a TEST npc.


pon·tif·i·cate/pänˈtifiˌkāt/
Verb: (in the Roman Catholic Church) Officiate as bishop, esp. at Mass.
Noun: (in the Roman Catholic Church) The office of pope or bishop.

using the term pontificate loosely in a religious connotation it's a testificate... a test monk in robes :P


that's all there is to it.


it's dressed in monk robes arms crossed piously it's a test mob therefore a testificate instead of a pontificate

possible of course, I'm not sure if that is the idea however, do all the different classes have test-role names? guess  we'll probably find out, it would make sense but we can never say for certain until someone confirms it.
