Icecrown Citadel ID sharing system.

Hello community,

With this announcement we want to clarify any possible doubts that may arise with the new ID sharing system that will be present for the Icecrown Citadel raid.

The IDs will be the same for 10 Normal and 10 Heroic modes, this will also happen for 25 Normal and 25 Heroic. So, for example, if you kill a boss in 10 Normal it will not be possible to kill that boss on its Heroic version the same week.

As you probably know, in order to access The Lich King encounter you will have to defeat 3 bosses first during the same lockout: Professor Putricide, Blood-Queen Lana’thel and Sindragosa.

The weekly quests inside the raid will also be shared between 10 Normal and 10 Heroic, the same will happen for 25 Normal and 25 Heroic.

Remember that even if the raid is switched to Heroic mode by the leader, every player will still need to have the proper attunement in order to enter, as explained in our last new.

Some quick clarifications:

– Icecrown Citadel 10 Normal and Icecrown Citadel 10 Heroic will have the same ID. If you kill a boss in one mode it will not be possible to kill him in the other. The same will happen for 25 Normal and 25 Heroic.
– If you switch between Normal and Heroic difficulties, all the raid members will need the proper attunement in order to enter into the raid.
– In order to have the possibility to engage The Lich King Heroic: Professor Putricide, Blood-Queen Lana’thel and Sindragosa have to be defeated also on their Heroic version.
– You will have 25 attempts each week to defeat all the ICC bosses in Heroic mode. Each wipe on Professor Putricide, Blood-Queen Lana’thel, Sindragosa and The Lich King shall remove one of the available attempts.
– If you reach 0 attempts in Heroic: Professor Putricide, Blood-Queen Lana’thel, Sindragosa and The Lich King will stop being available this week in this difficulty.
– If you reach 0 attempts in Heroic and switch to Normal mode, you will still have the possibility to kill those bosses who were not killed already.

Some random situations, as examples:

A) Your raid kills Professor Putricide in Normal mode and the rest of the bosses in Heroic mode: The Lich King Heroic will not be possible to engage, you will have to fight him in Normal mode. It will be the same outcome if just one of the required bosses is killed in Normal.

B) Your raid kills all the bosses in Heroic mode, but reaches 0 attempts during the Lich King Heroic encounter: you will not be able to continue with The Lich King Heroic. However, you will still have the possibility to defeat him if you switch to Normal.

C) Your raid kills Professor Putricide in Normal, Blood-Queen Lana’thel in Heroic and reaches 0 attempts while fighting Sindragosa in Heroic. You can switch to Normal mode and defeat Sindragosa, and then continue with The Lich King. But, Professor Putricide and Blood-Queen Lana’thel will not be available since those bosses were already killed, not matter in which mode. This means: those bosses killed in Heroic mode will not be spawned in Normal mode, and vice-versa.

Thank you very much.

Maintenance and ToC 5 release

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,

There will be a quick realm maintenance (downtime: 5-10 minutes), in order to deploy some fixes and release The Trial of the Champion dungeon (normal and heroic).

Remember that in order keep the progression feeling you will need at least The Secrets of Ulduar 10 player achievement to be able to queue or enter to the dungeon.

If you consider there is something urgent to be reported regarding this, use the emaildalaran.community@gmail.com, if it is not an urgent situation report it through our bug-tracker.

Thank you and enjoy it!

Dates and further details about the new content.

toc_header

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,

We would like to let the community know certain dates and details about how the next content is going to be released.

First of all, as you already are aware, the Trial of the Crusader raid (every difficulty on their pre-nerf status) is going to be opened this Saturday November 7th, this will happen at 20:00 Server Time. Each player will need to have completed Ulduar on normal mode in order to be qualified to enter ToC, which means you need to have achieved The Secret of Ulduar (10 players) if you want to enter into ToC/ToGC 10 man and The Secret of Ulduar (25 players) for ToC/ToGC 25 man.

We will not mention Onyxia’s Lair, as we have to perform a previous Beta Test before it is released, but you shall be updated regarding this matter once the realm first is achieved. However, as mentioned before, Onyxia’s Lair will be available around 2 months after ToC’s release.

Now, as we would like to make every release enjoyable without breaking the progression feeling, we are not going to open the Trial of the Champion dungeon this Saturday, but the November 20th. Koralon The Flame Watcher will be available with this update as well. Also because of this, the Northrend’s Heroic dungeon bosses will not drop any Emblem of Triumph yet, we will announce when they are going to after see how the guilds are progressing through the new content. Remember that in order to be entitled to loot these emblems the Keepers of Ulduar personal achievement will also be required. We shall explain everything before update Algalon with such feature. Of course, every Emblem of Triumph or item which is not supposed to be obtainable right now but it was due our mistake shall be wiped this Saturday.

The arena season ends this Saturday as well, we are going to announce the beginning of the next one and the rewards through another new. Before the next arena season starts, we are going to check every wintrading report in order to exclude them from the rewards and the season itself, so we can perform the proper punishment.

Thank you very much.

 

Edition:

Due the massive amount of suggestions that we have received through tickets and e-mails about reconsidering the entrance requirement for ToC, we have decided to accept them. So, in order to access ToC/ToGC 10, each player shall need to have achieved The Secret of Ulduar (10 players) and The Secrets of Ulduar (25 players) for ToC/ToGC 25.

However, as we want to have a healthy and active patch, we will be open to suggestions during the next content’s progression. As always, we are really thankful to every player who respectfully presents his opinion thinking the best way to improve the server.

Thank you very much.

Information about the upcoming RDF release

Greetings!

We have always listened to our community and we really appreciate all the votes and feedback that we have received regarding this matter.

That being said, the RDF system will release on November 28th with the following traits:

Low level rewards will remain untouched and players will be rewarded normally: i.e. both experience and bags.
Gold rewards will remain untouched and players will be rewarded normally.
– Since we are still somewhat in the initial stages of progression (Ulduar), for the time being players will not be rewarded with emblems (Frost or Triumph) when completing their task.
– Normal and Heroic modes of Trial of the Champion will remain closed and not available through RDF until Trial of the Crusader is released.
– Normal and Heroic modes of Forge of Souls, Pit of Saron and Halls of Reflection will remain closed and not available through RDF until Icecrown Citadel is released.

Newcomers who are not well informed will not be asking if the feature is “broken” anymore. Enjoy yourselves.

Golganeth

Hello there,

We want to clarify some possible doubts about certain matters, and take advantage of this post to inform about on what we are currently working:

  • You can PLAY NORMALLY with us, as always. Just be sure you have changed your realmlist to: set realmlist logon.dalaran-server.com
  • Right after the unscheduled and 4 hours long maintenance which happened during the past Sunday, all the players have been playing on Algalon or Kirin Tor realms without any issue, and not on a temporary realm.
  • You can forget and erase the previous realmlist (logon.dalaran-wow.com). Check how to change it to the correct one here: http://www.dalaran-wow.com/news/58/realmlist/
  • The Recruit a Friend mail delivery is again working as it should, now when you recruit a friend an automated message with all the instructions will be sent.
  • We have been setting back the infrastructure bit by bit, if you encounter some issues, let me know by private message, and I will report it for a fast fix if needed.
 
  • We have resumed our development schedule, back to fixing quest bugs, classes and so on (you can check our bugtracker).
  • Website synchronization with Algalon realm is also on the way, we will announce when you can use your Algalon character as Main Avatar on the forums.
  • Since the Ulduar realm firsts achievements have been taken, we will announce the release of theArgent Tournament (World Event), after some scheduled fixes and tasks.
  • With the release of the new website section: Legends of Dalaran, the PvE Tournament, we will also publish the news and rules of the participation on the next step from the Legends of Dalaran Tier 8: Ulduar.


Regards.

As you probably know, the RDF system is planned to be released with the correspondant content patch. However, we have received too many suggestions regarding this matter asking to release it sooner than expected without the emblem rewards.

As we have always stated, we listen to the community and we appreciate your ideas. So, we would like to know which are your thoughts about releasing the RDF system now, during the next few weeks.

Regards.
