Trial of the Crusader

Hello there,

The Trial of the Crusader will be opened in few minutes, we really hope everyone enjoys it.

We have tried to polish the scripting with the help of every Beta tester. However, there might appear some minor glitches. If anyone finds any issue regarding the scripting, please write us an e-mail to dalaran.community@gmail.comand let us know, so we can hotfix it as quick as we can.

The proper vendors shall be spawned during this night.

Remember the raid is on its pre-nerf status and the bosses are tuned in order to make it changeling to the players.

Those pre-nerf and tuned were tested already by raids with Ulduar equipment, so try to not report those things, please.

Once again, thank you very much.

Dates and further details about the new content.

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.

Trial of the Crusader official release.

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,


We are really glad to announce that the official Trial of the Crusader’s release will happen on 7th November, Saturday.


Before the opening, we are going to explain everything in detail, from the raid requirements to how the next patch’s content is going to be distributed and released. Of course, we would like to remind you what we already said few weeks ago:


“Remember, the next content patch’s release shall include Trial of the Crusader raid (every mode and difficulty), the new 5 man dungeon (both modes), Koralon from Vault of Archavon along with the new tier set, vendors, emblems and the start of the new PvP Season. Onyxia’s Lair shall be released a bit later, most likely between 1 and 2 months after the ToC’s official opening, with all that it implies – the remaining parts of the legendary chain quest. Since it will be an extraordinary event, we will announce it with time enough so the players can prepare themselves and compete for the legendary mount.


The duration of this patch will be much shorter than the previous tiers, being Icecrown Citadel and its dungeons released in few months.”


We really hope everyone of you enjoys the new content.


Thank you very much.

Recovering the planned schedule:

ask_header

Greetings,

The major instability issues that have been occurring over the past few weeks seem to have been corrected and we can return to our planned schedule. That means that some of the fixes that were reverted during the daily maintenances will be re-deployed and we can continue improving the server.

We are also working on several things that will help us keep you notified more easily regarding the updates and new content in the months to come.

In regard to Legends of Dalaran Tournament: Ulduar rewards and the Beta ToC invitations, please stay tuned – we will publish the results and grant the rewards, as well as contact you via the email addresses provided before announcing the final date.

Unfortunately, the unexpected issues made the last few weeks quite chaotic for us. As you may know, we are a small team and much of the planned work had to be postponed to identify and root out the problem. We offer our sincere gratitude for the patience, support and trust you have shown us – it has certainly helped us work harder and get it done faster. With work back on schedule, the rest of the announcements and fixes will come during the following days.

Thank you again.

Back to normal: Information

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.

Also do not forget to vote about the RDF release: here

Ulduar: Important.

Greetings,

As you might be aware we have zero tolerance people using hacks or exploits. With the opening of the gates of Ulduar it may be very tempting for some to try and cheat their way to victory. We would like to remind you of the consequences and advise you against it.

If a raid member uses a hack or an exploit in any of the raids, he will be banned permanently, should the rest of the raid members are aware of that and allow that player to continue with them, all raid members will share his fate.

If we see any kind of weird behavior with the mechanics of the game, due an exploit of the tactics, or using buffs that do not belong to the raid environment, the ban will be also permanent for the user and for all the raid members with him at the moment we see it.

If you have knowledge of any kind of illicit behavior by a player, your duty is to report it immediatly. Should you choose not to do so and are in his group when we catch him, you will all suffer the same punishment.

We have designed the encounters to be done in their natural way for every boss. If we see any of you trying to avoid one of the steps in order to progress further and faster by avoiding some fights, there will be no excuses, you will be banned, same as all your raid members if they did not report you for that.

Let us keep the battles clean and fair.

As a side note:

– Vendors related to this tier content will be deployed during the next week.
– Emalon in Vault of Archavon will be released during the next weekend. You will need Naxxramas 10/25 achievement in order to be able to defeat him.
– Reply Code Alpha quest will be deployed during the next weekend.

Secrets of Ulduar: Opening

ulduar_stormpeaks_header
For millennia, Ulduar has remained undisturbed by mortals, far away from their concerns and their struggles. Yet since its recent discovery, many have wondered what the structure’s original purpose may have been. Some thought it a city, built to herald the glory of its makers; some thought it a vault containing innumerable treasures, perhaps even relics of the mighty Titans themselves. Such speculations were wrong. Beyond Ulduar’s gates lies no city, no treasure vault, no final answer to the Titan’s mysteries. All that awaits those who dare set foot in Ulduar is a horror even the Titans could not, would not destroy, an evil they merely… contained.


Beneath ancient Ulduar, the Old God of death lies, whispering…. Tread carefully, or its prison will become your tomb.


Their gates will open at 19,00 Server Time during the next Friday 26th, enjoy this epic raid and good luck to the future Death’s Demise and Celestial Defenders!
