We would like to mention that we have many great news to announce. However, we are going to start first by talking about the Legendary PVE Tournament we have been preparing for some time.
As you probably know, we have been hosting the unprecedented Legends of Dalaran PvE tournament for some years, which consisted in several contests (speed run / special and unique achievement run – feats we propose, nothing custom) within the available Top Tier at that moment. This time, this remarkable PvE Tournament will be for everyone, it will include different and new contests/challenges for every single raid tier, from Naxxramas to Ruby Sanctum. Therefore, no matter if you just reached level 80 and started doing Naxxramas, if you are raiding the Heroic modes of the top raids or even if you are thinking to start anew the WoTLK progression, you may participate and earn some gratifying rewards, dashing through a challenging, progressive and pre-nerf content with this competition.
We are currently finishing its shape and form – everything will be explained through further news, such as how to participate, details, dates/schedule and rewards. We are looking forward to hosting this Legendary PvE Tournament and hope that every one of you enjoys it as much as we will.
“Do you hear the screams from the Scourge under the Ziggurat? Do you think yourself strong enough to not bow down before The God of Death? Will you rise among the Champions and make your faction proud? Are you feeling the shivers when you approach The Frozen Throne? Will you dare to enter into the realm of shadows and face the Twilight?
The cycle is constant. Altogether we are going to defeat every enemy once again, but this time under a new quest. We are looking for The Legends of Dalaran to outshine their foes. Are you one of them?”
We are delighted to announce our plans to host for third time our PVE Tournament, Legends of Dalaran.
From the beginning, we have been searching for Legends who can achieve the impossible, and we tried to bring the attention of all the players we could, even before Dalaran-Wow was released. Now that we are known as dedicated, persistent and devoted people to our server and to our citizens, we can proudly host one of the most epic tournaments right before each tier/season ends.
On Dalaran, not only the Realm Firsts that players have achieved will last, because there will also be Legends around, people known as the best. Eternal glory in our Kingdom awaits you, and believe us when we say that the race will not be just based on luck. Your dedication, teamwork and partnership, must be better than the rest if you want to have any chance.
This tournament will be hosted on our realm Algalon, and each and every one of the participants will have their reward.
What do we plan to achieve with this?
– To increase the competitive spirit among the players.
– To bring the “hero feeling” to our players and to spread the competition to possible new players to come.
– To gain international and competitive PvE reference.
– To have a centralized, unified and active community.
– To bring a challenge to experienced players.
– To advertise the server and to spread our quality around, in order to increase our popularity and grow as a unit.
– To give fame and reputation to our players and guilds towards the World of Warcraft community.
The PvE tournament will consist of two different races inside Icecrown Citadel and they will be present separately in both 10 and 25 modes.
1) Between 18th and 25th of May: First challenge – Speed Race.
Once the Speed Race is over, the Achievement race will take place.
2) Between 25th of May and 1th of June: On the second challenge, the guilds will have to accomplish a list of achievements (that we will provide) in Icecrown Citadel. Each of the achievements will have a specific point value.
The guild having more points between both of the challenges, will be proclaimed the winner.
How can you participate?
– The Guild Master or one of the Officers must register their guild for the tournament. The registration instructions for the Speed Run Tournament will be announced on a separated post soon.
We will explain through the forums everything, the table with the speed and achievement points value, rewards, rules, guidelines and so on.
If you want to become a Legend of Dalaran, this Tournament is for you.
We are also happy to announce the Ruby Sanctum Beta Test session will be hosted from June 1st to Sunday 3rd of June. If players are happy with the work that we have put on these encounters this new content shall be released a week after the Beta.
Thank you very much
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.
Hello Citizens of Dalaran,
We would like to inform the community that we are going to introduce the first zone buff (5%) inside The Icecrown Citadel raid, as well as reduce some of the extra health buff pool from certain encounters: Professor Putricide, Sindragosa and The Lich king (all difficulties).
This changes will be active the next Friday 6th.
More news regarding the Ruby Sanctum Beta and release will be published afterwards.
Thank you very much for reading.
