Account Security

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,

We have detected an unusual activity based on advertising other websites coming from accounts of random players

This seems related to a recent user information data-mining on external projects, wich means that those users who use the same password for several websites should change it for a new one as soon as possible.

We strongly encourage all our players to not share their account information with anyone and change the password through our account panel.

We have locked the affected accounts, if yours is one of them write an e-mail to:dalaran.community@gmail.com

As a side note:

In order to improve your account’s security, we strongly encourage you to change your password if you use the same one in multiple places.

We have also posted this information on our social media: Facebook, Twitter and Reddit. Share, like and retweet so your friends will also be aware of it!

Thank you very much.

Recruiting Testers.

support_header (1)

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,


We are excited to announce that we are currently recruiting volunteers in order to help us with the testing tasks.


We are looking for dedicated players with vast experience and knowledge of every aspect of the game, who will have access to our PTR and will help us test the new fixes before they get applied to the live realm. The testers will need to pay attention for small details, and write accurate reports in case it is required.


If you are interested write us an e-mail to: dalaran.recruitment@gmail.com with the following format:


Subject: Testers recruitment – Name of your Algalon’s main character.


Content: Explain us your knowledge and experience with the game, as well as your preference (if any) in case you would like to just focus in a single aspect of the game such as quests or spells.


Thank you very much.

A Gift of Wisdom

Greetings citizens of Dalaran.


We wanted to bring back a long-lost feature, one that we believe is necessary for our players and will spice up the daily lives on Dalaran-WoW.


As you are aware, our team was quite small these past few years and several features and improvements had to be delayed or put on hold to focus on more pressing matters. With the great help of our new additions to the Development and Game Master teams, we can once again resume that work.


The feature we are talking about is, of course, the celebrated Changelog. Each new addition is special, as we have put much care and hard work into them and each one has a thematic relevance to it. We have also kept the old Changelog entries in the Archived section, as we believe they were worth preserving. We would also love to document and publish in a future all the work done until now as archived changelogs.


Onwards to the people doing the development work: Robinsch is our main class developer, Rushor is working on general development and Jonanone is polishing quest areas. We would also like to inform you that a few of the primary staff members that started with us as Game Masters are also collaborating with the developers and are helping with fixes and testing, most noticeably Khazgorath and Golganeth. There is also an extra developer in the process to start collaborating to the class and PvP fixes.


In order to streamline the process, the Bug-tracker has been greatly improved with the addition of new tags, templates etc. and all Game Masters will be more active there as well. We continue counting on your help with feedback and well-organized reports, as they both aid us greatly in identifying and fixing outstanding issues. It is your reports that bring most of the problems to our attention and without this constant effort from your side, Dalaran would not be the same. Is this team effort that unites us in our quest for the perfect WotLK home.


On a side note, we have already set up a permanent PTR realm to test all the changes before they are deployed to the live realm, we have been thinking of inviting a few players to it for intensive testing sessions (dungeons, full quest zones, etc..). We will make a selection process for the Tester position, more information will be in a future announcement.


We would also like to take advantage of this announcement to thank the community for the efforts made to adapt to the social rules and for reporting those who were ignoring server rules of behaviour. Thanks to you, the overall quality and mood of our global chat has vastly improved and we are certain that all newcomers will be happy to join the community jokes and conversations. It is our belief that good community interactions are an important basis for Dalaran, and it is something every citizen can help with to make our home even better. Keep it up!



Cheers!

 

New team members.

Hello community,

We would like you to inform you that we have already selected 5 developers from all the applicants. Two of them will be fully dedicated to the classes and spells. These two developers will also work in the PvP content and overall server optimization once the classes are vastly improved. We will also have a quest developer, as well as 2 more collaborators who will help us with dungeons and overall server polishing.

With the introduction of the new developers, we are going to open a new subforum dedicated to the changelog. There you will be able to see all the fixes and all the changes performed very easily, instead of having to go to the bug tracker and check the closed reports.

In a few days, we will be recruiting a few volunteer testers, whose task will be to verify the new fixes made by the development team, before implementing them into the live server. We will give more detailed information about this position when the time comes, as well as an announcement in the website, stay tuned.

We would also like to give a warm welcome and to congratulate our new 4 Game Masters. They started a few weeks ago and they seem to fit perfectly in our team. Their effort and dedication can be already noticed by the players and the in-game assistance has improved quite a bit. They are solving the most common and basic in-game issues.

Anyway, we will be rechecking all the Game Master applications we have received, since we would like to incorporate 2 more of them, in order to better cover the NA times. If none of the current applicants can fit the time schedules, we may be reopening the recruitment with that specific requirement.

Since the tasks are now better distributed between the staff members and the workflow will be less heavy for everyone, our communication with you, the community, will be more constant and effective.

We are really excited about this and we are looking forward to improve our content even more. We will continue giving our best and never stop until we achieve a perfect WoTLK home.

Thank you very much.

Onyxian Whelpling

Hello community;

We would like to remind that Onyxia’s Lair will be opening at 17.00 server time.

In order to remember this moment, as you may know, you can adopt a little Onyxian Whelpling from the shops.

There are many whelps waiting for a new parent, do not hesitate to ask them to take a deep breath every once in a while, we promise it will not hurt as much as her beloved mother’s breath.

We are certain that under your protection, they will not want to follow their grandfather’s cataclysmic footsteps.

Enjoy it!

The Scepter of the Shifting Sands quest chain.

Hello community:

We would like to give some information concerning the quest chain: The Scepter of the Shifting Sands.

Onyxia will drop only one Chapter VI: Draconic for Dummies per raid.

Note: The first person to loot it will get it. Be careful with that because we will not provide assistance in case of a mistake, ninja looting or similar.

Regarding the Scarab Lord achievement, title and mount:

1) Anachronos will offer “The Might of Kalimdor” quest, where he informs players that they must now wait until the forces of the Horde and the Alliance arrive to Silithus.

2) The entire realm will need to wait 7 full days before the scepter bearer can bang the gong. After that, the quest: “Bang a Gong!” is offered and can be completed. This quest will cease to be available 10 hours after it is first completed on the realm. A World Message will also take place in order to inform the players.

3) After 10 hours, Jonathan the Revelator offers: “Treasure of the Timeless One” quest, that finishes the chain.

All the players who complete the quest Bang a Gong during the first 10 hours will be rewarded with the achievement, legendary mount and the title: Scarab Lord.

Thank you and good luck!

Ban announcements.

Hello community,

The number of cheaters has increased lately, so we have decided to bring back the world announcements when a player gets banned.

We believe this will cause potential cheaters to think it twice before doing so, as they will be able to witness in-game every ban.

We would also like to bring some attention and remind the rules of our server (including in-game chat and forums). Our bans are severe, most of them are permanent with no chance of appealing. We have zero tolerance with those players, no matter if it is you or a friend who was using your account.

Keep in mind that:

– Any person caught speed/fly or teleport hacking (with tools of any kind) will be getting a permanent ban.
– Any person caught botting, will be getting a 30-day ban. If repeated, it will be permanent.
– Any person caught exploiting will be banned. The duration of the ban will scale appropriately with the severity of the exploit (from 1 week/month to permanent). Your duty as a player is to report any exploit you encounter, not to abuse it. If you decide to take advantage of an exploit, you will be punished.
– Wintraders: We will deal with all of them. The first ban will be 1 month, duration will increase if they do it again. We will also remove everything obtained by wintrading.
– Disrespectful or inappropriate behavior will be warned and punished with mutes or temporary bans if repeated. Read the rules about how to behave in global chats and you should be fine. (http://www.dalaran-wow.com/forums/news-and-rules/rules-and-guidelines/topic/7005/reminder-mutes-and-bans)

Our Game Master team has been increased during the past few weeks, so we will be able to monitor players better. We have been constantly warning and banning players. You can always submit reports via in-game ticket (try to add proof if it is a social behavior report: spam, immature, racism, etc..). All the reports will be looked at carefully before proceeding to take action.
