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 would like to remind that Onyxia’s Lair will be opening at 17.00 server time.
In order to remember this moment, as you may know, you can adopt a little Onyxian Whelpling from the shops.
There are many whelps waiting for a new parent, do not hesitate to ask them to take a deep breath every once in a while, we promise it will not hurt as much as her beloved mother’s breath.
We are certain that under your protection, they will not want to follow their grandfather’s cataclysmic footsteps.
We would like to give some information concerning the quest chain: The Scepter of the Shifting Sands.
Onyxia will drop only one Chapter VI: Draconic for Dummies per raid.
Note: The first person to loot it will get it. Be careful with that because we will not provide assistance in case of a mistake, ninja looting or similar.
Regarding the Scarab Lord achievement, title and mount:
1) Anachronos will offer “The Might of Kalimdor” quest, where he informs players that they must now wait until the forces of the Horde and the Alliance arrive to Silithus.
2) The entire realm will need to wait 7 full days before the scepter bearer can bang the gong. After that, the quest: “Bang a Gong!” is offered and can be completed. This quest will cease to be available 10 hours after it is first completed on the realm. A World Message will also take place in order to inform the players.
3) After 10 hours, Jonathan the Revelator offers: “Treasure of the Timeless One” quest, that finishes the chain.
All the players who complete the quest Bang a Gong during the first 10 hours will be rewarded with the achievement, legendary mount and the title: Scarab Lord.
Thank you and good luck!
Hello citizens of Dalaran,
We are really glad to announce the release of Onyxia’s Lair, which will happen on Friday, May 13th at 17:00 Server Time.
The dreaded brood mother of the black dragonflight Onyxia has come to the forefront of Azeroth, and she awaits you lurking inside of her lair. Be careful heroes, because if you get in her line of sight, she will shatter the ground making the lava rise to hurt her enemies and protect her brood. Only those prepared to face the Trial of the Crusader or Grand Crusader challenges, will be allowed to face this new threat (this means that every player must have earned the Secrets of Ulduar achievement in order to face Onyxia).
To celebrate the release, available only for a limited time, everyone will be able to purchase the Onyxia Brood Whelpling from the shop for only 1 vote/donation point.
As many of you already know, Onyxia’s release has an important role in being able to complete the following quest chain: The Scepter of the Shifting Sands, which rewards a legendary mount and the title ‘Scarab Lord’. The quest ‘Bang a Gong’ will not trigger the War Effort event, since the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj are just being re-opened and not opened for the first time. The quest will cease to be available 10 hours after it is first completed on the realm. Once the first player starts it, several worldwide announcements will take place.
Currently, we are also preparing an announcement with the beta testing dates for Icecrown Citadel. It will require some heavy testing in raid environments, and it is almost certain that a few sessions will be required – the more people helping us, the better. We are pretty excited about it, as we are aiming to have this raid as perfect and polished as possible with all kind of details, including events and roleplays.
Thank you very much for reading.
