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.

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.

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,

This achievement challenge will last 2 IDs so you have a bit more time to complete as much achievements as you can (until the monday 18th).

Ulduar PvE Tournament: Registration

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,

As of today you can apply your guild to The Legends of Dalaran tournament by following these steps:

1) Consult with your guildmates before applying, motivate them, organize the roster and decide the streamer.
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 this format:

Subject: The Legends of Dalaran – Speed/Achievement challenge.

We sign in 10/25 man mode, accepting the rules of participation.

Our streamer will be: (Name of the streamer/streamers), this is his/her stream link: (stream link).

The raid leader will be: (Name of the raid leader/possible substitute).

We will raid at: (raiding date and time).

4) Wait to the date of the challenge.
5) Good Luck!

F.A.Q.:

  • Can we participate without streamer or video recorder?

– That is unfortunately impossible, we want the entire raid to be streamed, recorded and sent to us.

  • Can a group participate if not all participants hail 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 Tier 8 – Ulduar Tournament (Speed run/achievement run).

– 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.

– Yes, but you can only 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. Howerver, 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.

  • What if we are missing people from our roster when the run starts?

– As Guild: You can bring ONLY guildmates as a replacement to your tournament roster.

– As PuG group: You can pick up any new players that are not participating already.

We’d advise that you include backup players in the roster just in case.

  • Can my group or guild participate in the Tournament after the Speed Challenge applications are closed?

– Yes, but you will only be able to participate in the Achievement challenge.

Thank you very much.

  • All the participants must appear at the Expedition base camp and must remain BEHIND Brann Bronzebeard. The players can start running when the radio says: Okay! Let’s move out. Get into your machines; I’ll speak to you from here via the radio.
  • All the bosses except Algalon are obligatory.
  • You can skip some trash if you can, as long as you find a legit way to do it. Note that with this we mean only trash and no boss adds from an encounter – you are not allowed to force a way to avoid them by any means.
  • The timmer will stop the same second that Yogg-Saron dies or the video ends if you do not kill all the bosses.

If you decide to perform a specific tactic and you have doubts about if it is legit, do not hesitate of writting us an e-mail.

This team can still present their video and be considered participant of the tournament if they have at least reached and killed Auriaya. Note that the following penalizations of time will be added to the timer per boss missing:

  • Ignis, Razorscale: 20+ minutes.
  • Mimiron, Freya, Thorim, Hodir: 30+ minutes.

Now, since the real challenge comes from the Hard Modes we have decided to remove from the final timer a set amount of minutes per boss. The Hard Modes must be on its harder version when available except for Yogg-Saron which has two options:

  • Flame Leviathan with 4 towers up.
  • Freya with 3 elders alive.
  • In the case of the Iron Council shall be considered Hard Mode when either Steelbreaker or Runemaster Molgeim is the last member being killed.
  • Yogg-Saron can be done in both, +1 keeper or +0.

PvE Tournament: The Legends of Dalaran – Ulduar.

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,

In the taverns all across Azeroth a song can be heard, one song played by the bards, yet no one remembers the first one to sing it. It is heard around all over the place, but everyone knows the truth, it is an echo of our citizens, inside our memory, it will be spread in times of joy and fear. It is a Legend but there is nothing that proves it, and Legends may be forgotten or changed so the song will change too. We need to do something to keep the Legend alive, to remember each name and each feat, and this is how it is born: The Legends of Dalaran.

All of us will remember some names, some families, famous for their strength, their passion or their victories, the truth will be constant for a while, but with time will only last as a rumor. The brotherhoods change and their leadership too; everyone is a storyteller with some dwarfish beer in their hand, but in Dalaran, there will be a special book. A magic book like our kingdom, where all those who made the bards sing, who destroyed all the enemies and were known for their bravery and power, will forever remain as Legends and be remembered with eternal glory.

Our enemies are well known, every one of us knows how to deal with their threat, how to silence them week after week, but now everyone has the opportunity to show the rest why they are Legends and the rest only mere soldiers. To become a Legend you will need to fight against your enemies but also compete with your partners, the rest of the citizens of Dalaran.

When the battle is big, the reward has to even be bigger. So your name will be remembered through generations in our world, Azerothian winds will whisper to the rest when you are close to them who are you, and what you did. The fame will surround you, not only by your titles, but also by your feats.

If you want to become a Legend, to never be forgotten and always be known by everyone in Dalaran, where the children invent tales of your feats, where the ladies blush in your presence and the knights bow before you, this is your call.

The Priests will bless your fate, the Mages will conjure your dreams, the Warlocks will slay your nightmares, the Paladins will grant you their light, the Rogues will murder your enemies, the Shamans will call the elements to your presence, the Warriors will respect your bravery, the Druids will whisper your history to the elders, the Death-Knights will plague your opponents and the Hunters will tame the wild for you. You will be known as the best of your era, and maybe of the rest of generations that you live with us.

The books of our magical Kingdom of Dalaran are waiting to be written by you, our Legend.



We are delighted to announce our plans to host for second time an unique event that has never been seen in the history of Private Servers – A progressive PvE Tournament: The Legends of Dalaran – Ulduar.

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 for 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.

We are currently searching for the Legends of Ulduar, but we will be searching for more in the future. Each of the eras will await for their heroes, and after that, they will await for their Legends.

The idea was originally born of a suggestion from our Staff Member: Averdoom, and of a from the player Tygra (http://www.dalaran-wow.com/forums/community/pve/topic/2262/guild-raid-race suggestion) on the forums, about a possible guild race. After a long period of thinking about possible structures, performances and so on (always keeping our ideals and thoughts), Legends of Dalaran became true and is considered one of the great highlights from our server.

This tournament will be hosted on our realm Algalon, it will not be game-breaking, 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 be the one and unique private server with such tournaments.
– To gain international and competitive PvE reference.
– To become the heart and exclusive home of the PvE players.
– To bring the most deep PvE experience in the private servers.
– 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 Ulduar and they will be present separately on both 10 and 25 modes.

1) Between 1st and 7th of May: First challenge – Speed Race.

Once the Speed Race is over, the Achievement race will take place.

2) Between 8th and 14th of May: On the second challenge, the guilds will have to accomplish a list of achievements (that we will provide) in Ulduar. 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. Will anyone be able to beat Obsidius guild, our Legends of Dalaran – Tier 7 winner ?

How can you participate?

– The Guild Master or one of the Officers must register their guild to the tournament. The registration for the Speed Run Tournament will be opened tomorrow friday, the April 24rd.

**Note: Only those guilds who can have at least one player streaming via Twitch or recording everything will be eligible to participate on the tournament.

We will explain through the forums everything, the table with the speed and achievement points value, rewards, rules, rewards, guidelines and so on.

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