Arena Season 5 and 25 Man Raid Opens (4th-5th April)

top-img

This is a call to arms for all Gladiators and Champions of Northrend!!

A new adventure is about to start in Algalon. The Lich Lord of the Plaguelands now commands Scourge forces in the Dragonblight region, from above in his floating Necropolis which hovers over Wintergarde Keep, Naxxramas .

The Lich King yells: Invaders…here?! DESTROY them, Kel’Thuzad! Naxxramas must not fall!

Only 25 brave heroes will be recognized as Conquerors of Naxxramas and they will be forever known as the first ones who step a bit more into the future of the Fall of the Lich King.

Keep in mind there will be ones who defeat Sapphiron , the Guardian of Naxxramas and former agent of Malygos, that will get in there possession the Heroic Key to the Focusing Iris . This eye acts as a key to Malygos’s home: The Eye of Eternity, and they will rush to kill Malygos , The Spellweaver.

Malygos: I am without limits here… the rules of your cherished reality do not apply… in this realm, I am in control…

Those who are the first to aid Alexstrasza in Nexus War and limit the powers of Malygos, will be forever known as the Heroes of Dalaran and the realms very own Magic Seekers.

But Dragonblight is still being under dark influences and the Obsidian Sanctum is another threat coming into our world. This time, not only Nightfall and Twilight Vanquisher are awaiting you.

Sartharion: I will see you burn before any harm comes

Dalaran is waiting for those who will show to the rest that they are truly Obsidian Slayers.

Not to forget that the arena season will start for all those gladiators, to face each other and to see who is the most skilled among all of the Challengers. We will recognize only the best ones, from now on you will see walking the streets of Dalaran, the most SavageHateful and dangerous of all Deadly Gladiators.

Be careful if you face them defending or attacking the Wintergrasp Fortress , in the Battlegrounds or in the Arena. You may need Olisarra the Kind’s services, known to be the First to Your Aid in times of need.

Release of 25 player Raids and start of Arena season 5.

Hello Community,

We are glad to announce the release of the Arena Season 5 the next friday, the 4th of April and the 25 player raids (tier 7) the next saturday, the 5th of April, both at 16:00 Server Time.

Media section will be updated gradually with many screenshots and videos, so feel free to send us everything you have. We will also publish all your videos in our official Youtube channel.

As a side note: we will keep the community informed about the Ulduar Beta test we are already preparing. There will be an application to fill so that we can have random players from Dalaran-WoW testing our work on it, about a month before the release.

Enjoy it and good luck.

The Obsidian Sanctum – the powerful Onyxian threat.

sartharion image

 

A new danger is threatening our world: Sartharion the Onyx Guardian and his three drake lieutenants.
In the Chamber of Aspects inside the black dragonflight area, a clutch of twilight dragon eggs are located within the Obsidian Sanctum. Dalaran’s Council of Six are in the hopes that able-blodied adventurers can enter the sanctum and destroy the twisted progeny of Deathwing.

You won’t achieve that goal easily, as Sartharion is charged to watch over the twilight eggs, and will not be afraid to call his liutenants for help: Tenebron, Shadron and Vesperon, twilight drakes that will call their own help with Twilight Portals where dangerous disciples or acolytes can be found inside.

If you face them one by one, the reward shall be of great magnitude and will impact on the fight heavily, but if you face them all at once, the final gift of your feat will be equal of your level of challenge and maybe you are going to be one of the lucky citizens that will have the honor to ride the Black or Twilight Drake.

Even if Tenebron, Shadron and Vesperon never trusted Sartharion as the true Onyx guardian, they will aid him in battle if you try to defeat him while they are alive. They will open their Twilight Portals in the middle of the fight to help themselves in order to defend the sanctum at their full might and force. Same will do the Mistresses, Generals, Captains and Guardians around that they will come to help Sartharion if needed.

If for some reason one of the brave citizens of Dalaran try to avoid the waves of flame that Sartharion summons in the battle, the entire raid group shall suffer the mortal Pyrobuffet since Sartharion will not tolerate any kind of attempt of desertion. All those who shall flee away will suffer the eternal fire of the Onyx Guardians.
The Nightfall and Twilight Vanquishers of Dalaran will be recognized as true heroes and brave warriors that did an amazing fight to stay remembered as it was back in the past of the original world.

_________

We have fully revamped and completely reworked the raid of The Obsidian Sanctum, making it the most Blizzlike out there. We are most likely the first private server with the most quality Obsidian Sanctum scripts out there to bring you the closest experience how the fight was done back in the days of retail.
This is more or less the resume of our work:

Bug Tracker report

You will find there the things which are all fixed already and will be deployed today at 22:00 with a small maintenance on the live server. You can see the dedication of Dalaran-WoW, quality and infinite work full of enthusiasm and details.

As long as the community belives in us, we will keep pushing forward and never give up.
So you will now face a truly challenging raid if you try to defeat Sartharion with all 3 Drakes, since their abilities are now fully working, including portals and buffs/debuffs. Details as well, from all the quotes and some minor fixes as well.

This way, all the players that will now defeat it, will have the true, earned achievement which was made with a lot of blood and time, same fact stands for the mount as well. Achievements, titles and mount will be reseted/removed.

Have fun if you dare to try this incredible 10 man raid for now, the release of 25 man raids and the arena season will be announced during the next few days.

Thank you very much.

Algalon’s Brief Info.

algalonobserving580

Hello there,

Since a lot of new incoming people will start to play on Algalon without previously playing on Kirin Tor, we’ll explain in brief words some valuable and interesting data.

  • Rates: x1 rate in everything.
  • Version of the Game: 3.3.5a
  • Patch evolution: We will not be patching the content, we’ll be “unblocking/releasing” it gradually in consequence to your individual progression.
  • Dungeons and Raids: They will be closed to the personal progression of each particular character, and they will be opened gradually for every player as it was back in the days of Retail.
  • Season: There are going to be active arena seasons which will start from Season 5, and we will keep the current season for several months, linked with their correspondant PvE raid.
  • Random Dungeon Finder: It shall be disabled until Trial of the Crusader is released.
  • Emblems: They will be adapted to the personal progression of each individual character, and will only drop the correspondant emblem of the raid.
  • Refer a Friend: It will be disabled until the Realm First level 80 race/class and Grand Master Professions are taken. You can refer someone who doesn’t have account made on Dalaran WoW here, and in the same moment when all these achievements are earned, all the benefits will become available and active for you and your friend.
  • Heirlooms: They will not be available until the Realm First level 80 race/class and Grand Master Professions are taken.
  • GM Assistance: Take a look on: How to use in-game ticket system properly. Anyway, until all the Realm First Level 80 race/class are taken, we will not offer assistance in completing quests across Northrend. Also we are not permitted to help you out with any daily quests as well.
  • Bug report: You can easily submit your issues here: [url=”https://github.com/dalaranwow/dalaran-wow/issues?state=open”%5DBugtracker. It is placed within the Menu tab. Any report made on Forums will be deleted permanently. Take a look to the proper format to make a report.
  • Tranfers: WILL NEVER BE AVAILABLE FROM ANOTHER PRIVATE SERVER OR RETAIL. Transfers will become active after the Realm Firsts are taken from our realm Kirin Tor, read this restriction list.
  • Ban-hammer:Any kind of a attempt of hacking, exploiting, using Third-party softwares will result into permanent ban. If you are caught hacking, there is going to NO MERCY and ZERO TOLERANCE against any game breakers, there won’t be any absolute chance to EVER appeal the ban after it was delivered. There is also a great risk that all your progression on Kirin Tor, if you had one, will also be lost completely and permanently. Like we said, if you won’t play fair and square, you will have to deal with the permanent ban. We are not going to give multiple chances to anyone, you have one and ONLY ONE chance to play by the rules, so be on your guard and cautious. Ban-hammer’s victims.

For any kind of questions regarding this thread, clarifications, doubts, thoughts, suggestions please use the comment section below in our Forum’s post. We’ll answer you as soon as possible. Thank you.

News regarding Algalon and Kirin Tor

ask_header

 

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,

As you all know the great adventure of Algalon will begin this Saturday the 15th. The time has been set at 16:00 GMT +1 (Kirin Tor Realm time). As already indicated,we will reward all those who we think that have been really loyal from the day Dalaran-WoW was born. They will have a chance to reserve their characters names on Algalon (apart from those who participated in our advertisement campaign). The selected ones will receive news from us during the following days.

We have a huge content improvement for Algalon in comparison of the current state of Kirin Tor, both epic quests being scripted (new quests and old ones improved) and improvements in many general systems (AI, Pathfinding, Line of Sight, Spells/Auras, Roleplays, script improvements in all kind of level dungeons, full scripting of many world NPCs, some bosses mechanics corrections, exploit/crash fixes… etc). The vast majority of quests are working now, and the few that aren’t, they are going to be auto-completed upon taking them (except some special cases) meanwhile we continue working on them. We believe you will enjoy some of the surprises that you may find while leveling.

Of course, all this content and improvements will be implemented this week on Kirin Tor as well (some instances may be temporarily disabled to safely apply the changes).

There will be no boost available until all the Realm First level 80 (classes, races and grand master professions) are taken. We are implying that not a single player will be able to use the joy and advantage of Heirlooms, Refer a Friend and instant 70 feature on Algalon until the statements above are achieved. In this moment the character transfers from Kirin Tor will be enabled, your character must be at least level 50.

Also, if for some reason any player finds an issue meanwhile questing through Northrend, he will not have our assistance in completing those quests since it could bring a huge dis/advantage for other players. This will be active only while the race for the realm firsts are up. Like we just said, most of the quests work and if not, they are mostly set on auto-complete, though there is always a small chance to find something wrong with them.

Also, we shall keep ZERO tolerance when it comes to hackers, exploiters and those who think that can take advantage in the Realm First Race. If you are caught hacking, your account, your alt account, any account related to that account will be permanently suspended and there won’t be any chance to appeal it. Which in conclusion means, you will also loose your entire progress on Kirin Tor. There is going to be a huge team of Game Masters patroling all the areas, checking all the possible hackers and believe us: we know the differece between a hack, exploit and a fair play. Play safe and everything will be fine. Decide to play dirty and you shall suffer the consequences.

Thank you very much for reading this.

Side note: We apologize for the delay and lack of response in these days (mostly me: Lothloryen) on some private messages through the web, even ingame or Premium Tickets. We have been working very hard and without stop on all the preparations for a smooth release and improvements on both realms. Once both realms are up and stable, our personal attention will be as fast as always have been.

Algalon: How the progression will work.

Hello Citizens of Dalaran:

The Systems we will present here will not be changed before the release of Algalon. However, if the community speaks out and there is a general desire to make a specific change in the future, we will listen and consider it. Of course, our systems will continuously being improved and optimized.

Algalon´s realm content will be a bit different from Kirin Tor’s, so you can find some things that work on Kirin Tor and that do not work on Algalon, and vice versa. But soon they will be equal, thus improving the content and quality of both realms.

If you have any doubts and it has not been explained here, it does imply that it works exactly as in Kirin Tor or as it is supposed to do on the 3.3.5a patch.

There will be 2 Eras which will define Algalon Realm:

  • 1) First Era: The raids and arena seasons will be gradually released and will last as “the current raid/season” for around 3 months (depending on the raid).

    For example, as soon as Algalon is launched, you will be able to enjoy Naxxramas and arena season 5 for about 3 months (will post exact dates and times with the official release), once the time to open the next tier raid and season arrives, Ulduar and arena season 6 will be opened.

    There will be an exception with the way to release some of the first 25 player raids. Eg: Once the realm is opened, there will be available only 10-player mode of Naxxramas. Once Kel’Thuzad is defeated on his 10 player mode for the first time, then we will open the 25 player mode. In this way, we avoid rushes to the Realm First of Naxxramas 25 and we grant some time to stabilize the player base so that everyone has the same chances to obtain it.

  • 2) Second and final era: Once all the content is released, there will be a constant and eternal progression. Thanks to the systems we have implemented, Algalon has been designed with certain restrictions and features that allow the players to progress through the content making each raid / arena season a real challenge for everyone. If you want to progress in the game, either through PvE or PvP, you have to earn it and make an effort.

PvE

  • Northrend 5 player Instances

    Access restriction: There will be no restriction on accessing the Northrend instances, except: Trial of the Champion, The Forge of Souls, Pit of Saron and The Halls of Reflection. Only those players who met the previous requirements (having progressed through the content prior to these instances), will be able to enter.

    EmblemsEmblems of Triumph will be dropped only to those players who have already progressed through the content up to Trial of the Crusader.

    Example: If your character has progressed up to Ulduar (and has not yet managed to get The Descent into Madness 25 players achievement), he will not receive any type of emblem after defeating bosses on 5 man heroic instances.

    However, if your character has progressed up to Trial of the Crusader (which means, you have already got the achievements of Naxxramas/Ulduar) then you will be able to loot the emblems of triumph as reward for killing bosses in heroic mode of 5 man instances.

  • Raids

    Access restriction: Each raid will require the previous tier raid’s achievement on the same difficulty the player is trying to enter. For example, if you try to enter in Ulduar 10 player mode, you will need to have The Fall of Naxxramas (10 players) . Hence, the same goes to 25 player mode, you will need The Fall of Naxxramas (25 players) if you wish to enter into Ulduar 25 players.

    Emblems: Bosses will always drop that raid’s correspondent emblems for everyone. Example: Players get Emblems of Conquest upon killing any boss inside Ulduar, no matter what is the character’s progression.

    Gear restriction: Every raid will have a certain item level restriction. Players will not be able to equip not a single item which item level is higher than the allowed for that raid (nor switch weapons in combat), unless every single and each of the raid members have already progressed through the instance and obtained the maximum achievement. All the difficulties of the same raid will share the maximum item level restriction. In the case of Naxxramas, they would not be allowed to equip any item with higher level than 213 on any of the versions (25 and 10 players). Let’s see some examples:

    Scenario: Naxxramas 25 players with 213 as the maximum item level allowed (with the exception of Kel’Thuzad 25 items, with item level 226).

  • -Situation 1: There are players in the raid who have NOT yet progressed through Naxxramas 25.

    No one in the raid can equip an item which level is higher than 213 (except items of Kel’Thuzad 25), if a player which character has progressed up to Trial of the Crusader equips a 232 level item, he will be kicked from the raid and teleported out of the instance. The system will notify him and the whole raid so that everyone knows who and why he has been kicked.

    With this system, if a player has an item obtained in Ulduar 10 (item level 219), he cannot equip it within Naxxramas if there is at least one member who has not yet progressed enough. However, he could equip an item with 226 item level if it has been droped by Kel’Thuzad 25 players.

  • Situation 2: Each and every one of the players in the raid has progressed through this instance and has obtained the maximum achievement of Naxxramas 25.
    They can equip the item they want, this raid has earned the right to play Naxxramas as they like.

Of course, this is applied to all the raids, so that it will be scalable and coherent.

The system we have implemented is complex, dynamic and intelligent. It adapts itself in real time to the raid’s general behavior. It does detect and classify diversity of overall raid’s behavior, as well as the player’s by individually.

  • Exceptional case: Vault of Archavon.

    Every boss within the vault was released in a chronological order and synchronized with the WoTLK raids. Therefore, we have designed a system to analyze and contemplate the overall raid member’s progression. The bosses will be available or not depending on the progression of the players. Here’s an example:

    Archavon will be always available, regardless of the players progression as it was released with Naxxramas, thus since the very beginning of the WoTLK. However, Emalon was released as the same time as Ulduar, which implies that he will be available if each and every member has completed the Naxxramas raid. What if there are several players who have not completed it yet? The other bosses are not available for the raid until these players leave the instance, there will be just Archavon. If just one player does not meet the requirements, the bosses will disappear and the instance will configure itself in real time.

    Other quick example: every raid member has progressed already up to Trial of the Crusader (this means they have Naxxramas/Ulduar achievements), then Vault of Archavon will configure itself and there will be available Archavon, Emalon and Koralon.

PvP

All vendors have been set and will be adapted to each arena season so that will be impossible to get equipment that does not correspond to the current season. The PvP is subject to constant rotation; it will start in the season 5 and end at 8. When the 8th season ends, we will go back again through season 5.

  • Arenas, Battlegrounds, and Wintergrasp:

    There will be gear restrictions depending on the current arena season. For example, with the release of Algalon the current season will be 5, and there will be no chance that players have items with higher item level than that which correspond to this season or the current High end raid (as I mentioned all PvP vendors in Azeroth/Outlands will be fully configured ). However, once the season have rotated, there will be people who own PvE or PvP high gear ( Eg. Wrathfull or even trinkets like Deathbringer’s will ), but the 5th season would be running again, thus everything will be restricted again with the appropriate level as maximum. Hence, these players cannot equip those items within Arenas, Battlegrounds and Wintegrasp and create an imbalance in regard to those who are not geared yet. With this, we have created a tight and really challenging PvP, where all that the players get, will be hard-earned and always with the same conditions for everyone.

-Donations: Of course, as we have stated many times, there would never be high end game gear in our shops. Algalon’s shop will be more restrictive than Kirin Tor one.

-Random Dungeon Finder: As already discussed, the random dungeon finder will not be active yet.

-Weekly quests: The weekly raid quest will not be available.

-The related professions, talents, mechanics… etc will have the same systems specified by the patch 3.3.5a .

We will not answer questions that have already been answered or explained in other posts, so please, if you have any questions, be sure you have read all the information.
Discuss or inquire in this thread strictly only on how Algalon will work, unrelated posts will be deleted without warning.

Thank you very much.
