Here is a report about the current status of each Akarra shard. It will be updated from time to time as things change.
http://www.akarra.segasages.net/: Currently operating under the name Classic Akarra, this server is running a plain akarra server while new content is developed behind the scenes. There will be a character wipe when switching to the new content.
http://akarra.site88.net/: Gorgorath has set up a server. Initially it will be up 24/7 on his days off work, and about half that during work hours.
