The original 36 items that were available in pre-alpha 1. Legends of Equestria now features around a hundred items.

Open Server Events were a key event during pre-alpha and alpha development in Legends of Equestria, allowing the public to experience periodic previews of the game.

In these events, development on the game would be paused, while the cloud-based development servers were repurposed to relay necessary data that allowed the game to run on temporary clients. Open Server Events were integral in helping the team stress-test their game infrastructure in a variety of real-life contexts, including a DDoS attack on February 2015 [1].

In December 2016, Legends of Equestria entered its Limited Access Release phase, where the servers stay online constantly. As such, there will no longer be Open Server Events carried out.
