PvE Tournament: Guidelines and Rewards.

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,


We are glad to announce that we will be hosting our PvE Tournament from the 9th to the 30th of August. You will have 3 weeks to complete all the challenges we propose.


This tournament will require to perform different tasks through every WoTLK Tier starting from the Tier 7. It will be divided in 2 stages: First one will cover Tier 7 and Tier 8, while the second one will cover the Tier 9 and Tier 10.


At first, we designed a complex Tournament system with many branches, choices…etc. However, after giving it a lot of thought and perform many tests we came to the conclusion that it could be a bit confusing or overwhelming, as well as hard to recreate in a real raiding environment. That’s why we have decided to merge ideas and simplify them while offering only 2 possible paths or choices for each Tier: Achievement Run or RNG Box. Every group will have too choose a path for each Tier as they like (E.g: RNG Box for Naxxramas, Achievement Run for Ulduar, RNG Box for ToC and RNG Box for ICC).


Let us explain individually in what consists each path:


ACHIEVEMENT RUN:.
A selection of Feats to do proposed by us, we will fish out some of our favourites from the past but we will also be adding new ones that are ideated to be challenging and fun. This way new participants can have a dash of joy (and pain) from our previous tournaments.


The full and definitive achievement list with their corresponding points will be published a week before the Tournament starts.


If anyone wants to see of the old ones, you can take a look here:

 

 

Score:
– Points are earned upon the completion of those feats.
– This path will allow a group to accumulate a slightly higher amount of total points than the RNG Box’s path.
– There will be an extra bonification if at least the 30% of the group gets attuned in the run.

 

RNG BOX:.
If a group chooses this option for a certain Tier, they will be have to “open” a RNG Box the same day the Stage starts. The content of this box will be a totally random set of different challenges that need to be accomplished during such raid, this will make each group to have a unique set of tasks to do. Some tasks will make a run quite bearable and easy, while some others may increase the difficulty noticeably. Although several are just for fun…


Here are just a few mere examples about what may be inside the RNG box:


– Everyone needs to be barefoot during the whole raid.
– You may have an invisible and helpfull GM within your raid (or the opposite, you may have trickster GM who will make you suffer while fighting bosses…).
– The group needs to shrink the evilness from bosses (both mentally and physically).
– You receive a constant punishment for that raid (e.g: one player needs to die when the encounter starts and remain in that way until it ends, or one member from the group has to be the last man standing every encounter).
– There needs to be a pirate race between bosses.


All the possible options for the Naxxramas and Ulduar RNG Boxes will be published altogether with the full achievement list (including point distribution and details), which is a week before the Tournament starts. In the other hand, ToC’s and ICC’s RNG Boxes possible content will be revealed halfway during the Tournament, before the Stage 2 starts. The entire list will be quite big, however once a group “opens” the box, a small set of tasks from such list will be randomly generated for them.


Additionally, each RNG Box will have a chance to drop extra rewards and small amount of bonification points.


Score:
– Also in this case, points are earned upon the completion of those tasks.
– This path will allow a group to accumulate a slightly lower amount of total points than the Achievement Run, but remember that there is a chance to receive a small amount of bonification points when the RNG Box is opened.
– There will be an extra bonification if at least the 30% of the group gets attuned in this run.

 

In the case there is a tie, we will set a Speed Run between the groups and the winner of the race will be the winner for that tier.


Therefore, the Legendary PvE Tournament will be divided in 2 stages:
Stage 1

 

 

Stage 2

 

 

 

REWARDS:
Participants:

 

 

Stage 1 Winner:

 

 

Stage 2 Winner:

 

 

Tournament Winner:

 

 

We want to offer every kind of group the chance to enjoy a proper challenge, or even just have some fun altogether while earning some nice rewards, you can choose your own path.

 

DATES: We will be hosting our PvE Tournament from the 9th to the 30th of August, it will cover 3 possible Raid IDs.

 

HOW TO REGISTER:
As of today your group can apply for The Legendary PvE Tournament by following these steps:
1) Consult with your guildmates before applying, motivate them, organize the roster and decide who will record the runs.
2) Decide in which mode you want to participate – 10 man and/or 25 man.
3) Send an e-mail to: dalaran.community@gmail.com with the subject: Legendary PvE Tournament – your group name.
4) You don’t need to choose right now which path your group will do, we will ask you about it by mail once we’ve revealed the achievement list and the RNG Box full content.
We will contact you if we need anything extra from you.

 

F.A.Q:
Can we participate without a video recorder?
– This is unfortunately impossible, we need it to be streamed/recorded. Videos need to be uploaded to Youtube and the links sent to us.
What platforms can we use to publish the video?
– This time, only Youtube will be allowed.
Can a group participate if not all participants are from the same guild?
– Yes it can, there can be Picked up Groups. But their members will not be able to participate with their own guild as well for the entire duration of the Tournament.
– You have to decide the name of your group and specify it in the application in the Guild name slot as Pug Group. Example: PUG group: The archmages with arthritis.
What do we need to do to be considered at least “Participant” and earn the rewards?
– If the majority of the group is already attuned and raiding ICC, you need to participate on every Tier to be considered participants (hence, receive the corresponding rewards). However, if your group is currently still progressing through the content (for example, in Ulduar), and wishes to participate only in Naxxramas and Ulduar, you are perfectly able to do so – you will be considered participant and earn the rewards. Do not hesitate to write us an e-mail and ask if you have any question, please.
Can my guild/group participate in 10 and 25 man?
– Yes, but you only can participate in each mode once.
Can I participate with different PuG groups or guilds on several stages or challenges from the same tier?
– Not with the same character, if you choose one group or guild, you will be able to only participate with them during the whole Tournament correspondant to the current tier. However, you can participate with one character with your guild, and use an alter to join a pug group, for example. This way you will be allowed to receive the rewards with both of them even if they belong to the same account. There is no limit on how many groups you may join but remember, you must use different characters.

 

We really hope everyone enjoys this PvE Tournament.


We would also like to take advantage of this new, to let you know that we are celebrating our 6th Anniversary soon, stay tunned!

Quick notes

Hello community,


We are really thankful for the massive participation in the Survey, it is really exciting to see so many players collaborating and giving their opinions. We are currently studying and discussing the results; we will keep you posted about any decision we take in the near future.


Additionally, we would like to communicate that the following promotions will NOT be active anymore from now on:


– Free instant 70 promotion (we won’t be accepting new applications either).
– Free Faction Change from Horde to Alliance.


Stay tuned because there are some upcoming news: the PvE Tournament, our 6th-year Anniversary event, staff recruitment and some interesting changes.


Thank you once again for your participation and suggestions, it has been a blast for us to see what you think about the home we have worked so hard to create for every WotLK player. Hopefully, we can raise higher the bar with the incoming Second Era of progression.


 

PvE Tournament: Free instant 70 for current and new players.

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,


As we mentioned in other news, the PvE Tournament will have different phases and challenges through every WoTLK raid so any kind of guild able to raid can take part (you can read a bit more about it here and here). Therefore, many players may want to participate with fresh characters to take advantage of the Attunement Challenge or there might be new ones who wish to take a quicker path in order to join/create a guild and partake in this adventure that is about to come.


In any case, we have decided to ease the possibility for everyone to join our Legendary PvE Tournament, no matter if you are a current or a new player. This way, it becomes a great opportunity to get those characters ready to start in Naxxramas and progress their way through the rest of the raids altogether in the competition.


We thought to offer it with enough time before the beginning of the PvE Tournament so players can organise their guilds, groups and recruitments while taking advantage of this holiday season. Thus this promotion will be active until the Tournament begins.


In order to use it, you just need to access your Account Pannel on the website, then click on Instant 70 and you will be shown a Free boost choice.


On the other hand, if you are a new player you will have to Apply for Free Instant 70. You will see a button in order to do so, just click on it and follow the given instructions. If any issue appears or any doubt arises, feel free to open an in-game ticket and our Game Masters will help you.


– It is totally free and you do not need to be premium.
– The free pack will contain the starting sets and a Cold Weather Flying book.
– Once you have used it over one of your characters, you can’t use it anymore.
– If you have donation points but you are eligible for the Free boost, the free boost shall have priority and no donation points will be deducted from your account.


We really hope you enjoy it, thank you very much.


More info about the upcoming Legendary PvE Tournament.

Hello everyone!


We would like to give you a bit more of general information about the upcoming Legendary PvE Tournament.


1) We are working to make it as open and accessible as possible so that everyone can participate, from old players to new ones, or even those who are not yet playing in our server, we’ll give more details soon about this.


2) There will be several categories/races to participate in, this way a new fresh guild could compete with the most dedicated one for the top prizes. Players will be able to choose the path of their participation, there will be separated branches that will lead to the final results, based on each group’s decisions through each stage.


In past tournaments, we presented 2 kinds of challenges; the Speed run challenge and the Achievement run challenge (special feats proposed by us). The group with more points in total was the winner.


However, for this new version of the tournament, we have added more types of runs and phases, so everyone can join and compete while deciding which challenges suit them best for each stage/phase (no matter their current progression through the Tiers). Some will be fun, some will be hard, some will be chaotic, some will be based on random; every group chooses their path. To quickly mention few, we will present the addition of Attunement challenges, Dare challenges, Creative challenges, “Hate the GM, not the Game” challenge…etc.


We want to offer everyone the possibility to participate, compete and have a good time thanks to this more than epic tournament and of course, earn some juicy rewards while savoring again the WoTLK raids.


3) It is a big tournament, the dates are yet to be set, but it will require several IDs.


4) Even though the tournament specifics are mostly set; if anyone wishes to send us some suggestions they will be welcome. Feel free to write us an e-mail to dalaran.community@gmail.com. Any idea you think that may be fun, challenging or impressive is always good considering.


5) Everything will be published and explained properly through further news. Once we’ve announced every relevant detail, we will post a thread on the forums which will gather all the information and can be used as the main source of reference.


This is a call to arms, we are not looking for Heroes, we are seeking Legends! Tell your friends and gather your team!


Legendary PvE Tournament: WoTLK raids.


Hello Citizens of Dalaran,

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?”

PvE Tournament: The Legends of Dalaran – Icecrown Citadel.

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,


As announced some weeks ago, our PvE Tournament Legends of Dalaran: Icecrown Citadel will start the 18th of May.


We have published some useful information about the Tournament:





The Achievement’s challenge specifications and rules will be published soon.


Remember, If you want to become a Legend of Dalaran, this Tournament is for you.


Ruby Sanctum Beta and PvE Tournament official dates:

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
