Icecrown Citadel Beta: Friday 16th to Monday 19th

world-of-warcraft-review

 

Hello citizens of Dalaran,

We are glad to announce that the Beta sessions of the Icecrown Citadel patch are already structured and the first Beta will start on Friday 16th and will last until Monday 19th. This will be a meticulous process and we will ask a thorough collaboration from the group of testers.

The testers will receive a wide list of things to check out that will require a full raid or group environment. After each Beta session, the testers should make a compendium report with the results about each of the points. The testers can also check out other things that are not in the list and add it later as a result.

The first Beta session is scheduled to only test the different raid difficulties of Icecrown Citadel (10 and 25 Normal and Heroic). The testing requirements could be summarized into; Tactics with their abilities/spells, visual and cosmetic details and feedback regarding the lack of buffs.

We would prefer if players willing to participate in the Beta sessions are raid groups already attuned to enter Icecrown Citadel and geared enough to have a proper raid performance. There will be no attunement required to enter the raids on the PTR.

We have tried to polish the content as much as possible with a lot of effort, love and motivation and in fact we think that the results are great (from roleplays, visual effects, events to encounter mechanics). We do expect some issues to appear when it is tested on a real player based raid environment though, but nothing major that it can not be quickly fixed before the official release.


A representative from the guild groups that are willing to participate in the First Beta Sessions regarding Icecrown Citadel raid has to send the registration to: dalaran.beta@gmail.com with the subject title: Name of your guild – Icecrown Citadel Beta.

The content of the email should be:

1) A list of the participants from your guild, keep in mind that the volume of players can be as long as you desire and you can divide them in the number of raid groups you consider best, you can bring alters to help with the testing purposes.

2) The raid modes you are going to test. Can be multiple options too.

More details and instructions will be sent through email to the representative of the guilds.


Once the Icecrown Citadel raid is fully tested, we will open a new Beta session to test out additional content that will also be released during this patch, that will include:

  • The Forge of Souls, the Pit of Saron and the Halls of Reflection in normal and heroic modes, with their related quests.
  • The Return of Quel’Delar and Shadowmourne quest chains.
  • Toravon the Ice Watcher inside the Vault of Archavon.

We will announce if we will need another Beta session for this content after receiving the reports from the first one. If there is no need for another session, then we will announce the next Beta for the additional content and its process to participate in it, since we are aware many players are willing to participate on this Betas, but maybe they can’t provide a raiding environment, we will offer the second Beta to the rest of the players that are willing to participate with party groups to test the dungeons or exceptional individuals to test the Quest lines.

Thank you very much.

Koralon the Flame Watcher

Hello Citizens of Dalaran.

We have just released Koralon the Flame Watcher inside the Vault of Archavon.

Only those who already have The Secrets of Ulduar will be able to encounter him, if there is any player in the raid group without this achievement, the boss will not be available.

Regarding the Trial of the Champion requirement, we have agreed to downgrade it to the Keepers of Ulduar (10 or 25), instead of the Secrets of Ulduar.

Thank you very much and enjoy it.

The Arena Season 7 has started

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,

The Arena Season 7 has already started, we hope everyone enjoys it. We are currently working on many class corrections in order to make the experience much better, we shall slowly deploy them to the Algalon realm.

Koralon the Flame Watcher was supposed to be released today, however we are going to postpone its release to the next Friday, due the recent amount of unexpected issues and world events/dungeon releases.

Thank you very much.

ToC 5, Koralon and the new PvP season

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,

Now that everything is a bit more settled, we can already release Trial of the Champion dungeon and welcome to the new PvP season.

The dungeon will be opened the next Tuesday, December 1st and the PvP season will start the Friday 4th, on which day Koralon the Flame Watcher shall be also available.

We hope everyone enjoys it.

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.

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.
