Upcoming PvE Tournament, Betas and more.


Hello Citizens of Dalaran,

As we have stated in the past news, 2018 comes with a lot of activity and we would like to share with you some of our plans and the next steps that we will take, alongside some suggestions made by our community.

First off, the most imminent event: our desired High-End PvE Tournament – Icecrown Citadel (speed run and achievement run). As you may already know such kind of tournament wasn’t seen until we forged it; we did it so players could have some extra challenges as well as have some fun while the new content’s release was approaching. Sadly, we had to skip this tournament during the Trial of the Crusader’s era, in order to focus our energy on handling the heavy workload and preparing the Icecrown Citadel patch. Now, as people have been progressing through the latest content, we believe it is time to celebrate our PvE Tournament: Legends of Dalaran. We will be giving further information regarding this matter: how to participate, tournament rules, rewards, and so on.

Secondly, another upcoming event is the Beta testing for The Ruby Sanctum. This will be happening right after the PvE Tournament. Only the guilds that take part in the tournament will be able to participate and have access to the Beta. We will publish very specific news about it, explaining everything that you need to know.

As we look back into our own footsteps, we feel really proud of what we have accomplished. We were pioneers creating a progressive server, we offered harder content compared to the 3.3.5a patch by tuning the bosses and making it a real and fun challenge for everyone, we recovered the pre-nerf status from every boss in this expansion with the objective to recover the Blizzlike feeling of a challenging progression. In order to accomplish this, one of the main things that we felt like it was necessary, was performing Beta testing sessions before releasing each tier of new content, and that is what we have always been doing.

Those features, alongside the strict Blizzlike feeling and the essence of Wrath of the Lich King, have always been the main pillars of Dalaran-WoW for the past 5 years, and they will always be. After all this time we feel very glad and satisfied of being the first ones on the private server scene who introduced and developed some features, concepts, and ideas that made possible a progressive server: properly tuned and buffed content, pre-nerf status encounters, several systems to emulate the Blizzlike’s high-end progression for each character, dedicated Beta sessions before releasing each of the tiers, PvE Tournaments, among others.

Now, why are we thinking about the past and pointing out our ideas? During the last year, many of you have been suggesting us to launch a new realm, where Kel’Thuzad would be the greatest menace once again. It is important to remember the reason why Dalaran stands as a progressive server in everyone’s mind. We would like to answer you back; we hear you. But first of all, we need to finish the remaining tasks, and since this is quite a big decision, there are many things to consider very carefully. It is something that we keep in mind and we are thoroughly thinking and discussing about it.

We shall have the community updated. We really appreciate your feedback and we will always listen to your suggestions.

Lunar Festival is here!


Hello Community!

It is time to honor and give your respects to the Ancestor’s Spirits around Azeroth, visit the ghostly Elders around and be rewarded with the Coin of Ancestry. And while respect, tradition, and honor are the guide to your pilgrimage to become an Elder yourself, remember to celebrate it with the druids of Moonglade with the huge range of Fireworks available during this week. Also, if you feel fit for the task and want to be blessed by Elune you can defeat Omen, the corrupted demi-god.

The Lunar Festival will take place from 17th of February to the 3rd of March.

Enjoy!

We started a new era, we renewed content no longer active, we exalted the importance of the journey and the little details, and with your support and our love to this expansion, we raised once again the magical capital of Azeroth: Dalaran.

It has been a truly learning experience, we came from nowhere with our ideas, but alongside our enthusiasm and effort, your constant support and constructive criticism made us keep pushing our work and keep our feet on the ground so we could continue our quest to perfection.

We will continue offering to you our best, stand up for the ideals that made us create Dalaran, keep our essence in everything we embark as we have been done since Dalaran was created 5 years ago back in 2013.

Love Is All Around

How Charming!

I just got my Heart-Shaped Box! Let’s see if the Lovely Luck is on our side, because after Tough Love and Flirt with the Disaster, I Pitied the Fool that wears the Vile Fumigator’s Mask. I would share the Lovely Charm Bracelet, so they would feel a bit less Lonely, everyone needs a powerful Love Token by their side because a Dangerous Love or a Sweet Tooth can get you Perma-Peddled.

We could make a Nation of Adoration together spreading just a Fistful of Love within our comrades, what a Lovely Charm is if you get Shafted! or under the influence of the Rocket’s Pink Glare in the meanwhile!

But remember, My love is like a Red, Red Rose or a Big Love Rocket, we just need to tell each other: Be Mine.

Signed:

The Love Fool

Good New Year, everyone!


Hello Citizens of Dalaran,

We would like to wish you a Happy New Year, full of feats and achievements.

We think you can extrapolate into your life that in every difficulty you may need a good Tank that knows when to taunt and protect you from the enemy, you will need Support to accompany you to face your fears, and never forget you may require a Healer in order to heal the wounds. Surround yoursef with a good team and the progression will become a nice memento. Keep dinging levels and unlocking new content, and make the 2018 a year where you face and surpass every challenge.

We have planned some important releases (aside of Ruby Sanctum’s) and announcements to be done during this year, and we would love that every of our players find what they are looking for with us, as well as the new ones that start with the amazing journey of our WotLK progressive content. A new era approaches.

May your 2018 goals be achieved, and you enjoy and take part on all our future endeavours.

Best wishes from Dalaran, your WotLK home.

Happy Ho-Ho-Holidays and Winter Veil!

winter-veil_header

I don’t want ICC gear for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don’t care about the Epics
Underneath the Christmas
I just want it for my own
More than Arthas could ever know
Seeing the Invincible in the loot
All I want for Christmas is this cute, ohhhh

Hello community!

We would like to take advantage of the Winter’s Veil seasonal event to wish you happy Holiday on behalf the staff of Dalaran-WoW.

We really hope you enjoy this WotLK Home and have a wonderful time on these special days. We also want to thank you for your constant support and collaboration and of course, we also would like to thank every staff member that helps with their passion and devotion for this project.

We will keep giving our best, including our singing skills for this special occasions!

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to bite
Every recipe from Winter Veil.

Dashing through Ironforge
On a mount or in open sleigh,
Over the Barrens we go,
Laughing all the way;
Bells on BB King,
Making spirits bright,
What A Long, Strange Trip It’s Been,
With the Frosty Shake tonight.

Ooh!
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
In Orgril’la all the time.

Dashing through Dalaran
With a Little Help from My Friends,
Crashin’ & Thrashin’ we go,
Letting It Snow all the way;
Bells on Abominable Greench,
Making spirits bright,
How Naughty have you been,
To get Merrymaker tonight.

Soo, Jingle bells, Human spells,
Night Elves only pray,
Taurens are bulls, Gnomes small,
Forsaken have decay, hey!
Jingle bells, Draeneis have tails,
the Orcs can enrage
Trolls are fun, Blood Elves are afraid
and the Dwarves are a good mate.

Oh! and before I forget, I also have a special seasonal song on behalf Lothloryen:

Last Christmas, I gave you my fix
But the very next day you exploited it away
This year, to save me from tears
Please report it to the bugtracker.

It’s beginning to smell a lot like Turkey!


And now is time to cook some achievements!

Becoming a chef has never been so important, acquire the Bountiful Cookbook and start your journey with the delicious seasonal recipes. Keep in mind that you may need to do a bit of a pilgrimage between the cities in order to obtain the special delicacies to craft them.

Remember to make a good food fight with your allies as well as share the bounty with them passing along the dishes, but also take a seat with your enemies in their cities, but to make it more perilous you will have to dress for that occasion if you want to transform it into a feat.

And while you may need to hunt, dominate and slaughter those Wild Turkeys before you triumph on your tasks, do not forget to blast every rogue you find around or even defeat Talon King Ikiss.

Enjoy the event, don’t chicken out!

PS: Careful when you are beside a Campfire with your Plump Turkey pet, because he will not be able to resist jumping into his destiny.
