Hallowed Be Thy Name, Happy Hallow’s End!

When Witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the Headless Horseman laughs and whispers,
’tis near Halloween


When the decorations of Hallow’s End light up Azeroth’s cities, you know there’s mischief afoot! Seek around the inns and get your hands on treats! Aid a sick orphan in a little trick-or-treating! Darkcaller Yanka, attending the Forsaken’s Wickerman Festival, and Sergeant Hartman of Southshore are seeking your aid in keeping the enemy out of their holiday affairs – are you up to the challenge?


Be careful with the Black Cats , as they will put a bad luck spell on you. Eat as many candies as your tummy can accept and if you can’t get out with it , use the sugar rush to your own advantage. G.N.E.R.D rage your enemies on the battlefield and collect the masks for all occasions . Don’t forget to use a Tooth pick to make your smile shine, and use all the magic wands to get ready for the Masquerade .


As soon as you have the Sinister Squashling and the Hallowed Helm , don’t forget to Check your Head , just to make sure you don’t get transformed into the Headless Horseman himself! We are not sure if that’s the spell that makes him come on every Hallow’s End.



 

Approaching the Second Era.

Hello Citizens of Dalaran,

 

A few months ago we gave you some strokes of information about the upcoming Second Era of Progression. We also gave you the opportunity to fill a survey in order to see your opinions about us performing a possible “Raid and PvP Soft reset”, emulating once again a Fresh WoTLK progression, without players losing anything.

 

As a quick reminder and briefly explained; we believe we have found a middle ground that should please old, current, returning and new players. It is a totally new system never seen before, so we want to make sure that everything is crystal clear and there is no room for doubts. Therefore, we are going to post a new, as well as open a new section on our website specifically dedicated to this Second Era during early October, where everything will be clearly explained. You will also be able to fill a very small survey after you read it, this way we will be able to see the overall reception of such idea.

 

After much consideration, we think it will bring the feeling of competition directly into the raiding scene and freshen the air for everyone, while emulating a fresh realm but, without erasing our player’s effort (remember, no one would loose items, achievements, pets, mounts, levels…etc).

 

We have been developing this idea for a long time (we explained its essence a few years ago), and we are really confident it will set a new path into the world we already know. We will be offering a new direction for the WotLK realms, as we did with the Progressive release/system, Pre-nerf mechanics, buffed up encounters, challenging content…etc. Making our ideals the WoTLK standard.

 

As we announced 6 years ago right before Algalon’s release, we wanted to always keep the Progressive content relevant and challenging. It is absolutely wonderful to look back, we feel really proud and full of nostalgia. Watching our Algalon’s video Trailer brings up many good memories of this beautiful journey. Now is the moment to proceed with the next step and, with the information we are going to announce we will explain how everyone will be able to benefit from this Second Era, no matter if old, current, returning or new player.

 

We would also like to share a reflexion about the previous Survey’s results. It looks like our community liked both The Soft Reset and the new realm similarly and there is a small fraction that wishes to keep everything as it is right now. We think that after the Second Era’s full explanation is released in early October, many players that preferred a new realm or to keep everything as it is may be pleased with the Soft Reset’s option (as it emulates a fresh raiding / PvP scene while honouring every player’s effort until now). This is why a small survey will also be available, so every one of you can tell us if you like it after fully knowing how this actually would work. Please, remember that no step will be done without our community’s approval.

 

We have ready the First Beta test for this second Era of Progression. It will basically consist into checking the mechanic quality from the first tiers (with the new improvements), buff values, and the functionality of some general systems we have been working on to support the Second Era.

 

As we have always been doing, the groups that have access by default to our Betas are the ones who participated in the last PvE Tournament. However, after such a long journey and since this is a very emotional moment, we would also like to offer the possibility to participate as special guests in The Second Era’s Betas to old Guilds, old Realm First players…etc. Of course, if a current guild wishes also partake, will be more than welcome. Anyhow, more information about Betas will be published after the upcoming announcement.

 

Thank you everyone for your support, we hope you enjoy what comes next!

 

Brewfest is here!

Dalaran-WoW, best private server with pure retail scripts. Brewfest event 2013

Ale y’all! Hop in the drum of celebration!
 
Prepare yourselves for a few crazy days of being surrounded by pink elephants, wolpertingers and the delicious smell of sausage in the air around Durotar and Dun Morogh, enriched by the aroma of the most exquisite beers from all corners of Azeroth. Ogres, Trolls, Dwarves and Orcs will offer their wares with the Brewmaster’s specific music in the zone, invite one of the revelers for a dance and have fun.
 
Participate in the Ram race! Advertise the Brewfest in Orgrimmar and Ironforge and you may receive a beer barrel on the way. You can also dress up in Brewfest clothes and dance in Dalaran after a few beers, if you haven’t had too many it might even net you a reward.
 
However, this holiday event will also claim the attention of the Dark Iron Dwarves, who will try their hardest to steal the beer and bring it to their Chief, Coren Direbrew, hidden inside Blackrock Depths’ Grim Guzzler bar – your mission will be to stop them and defeat their leader and his daughter.
 
Did you know that if you are present when Mekkatorque (Dun Morogh) or Vol’jin (Durotar) give their Brewfest speech, you will get a buff called Brewfest Enthusiast, which gives you an extra 10% experience? That will surely help you in your adventures!



Thank brew very much, cheers!

We will explain every single detail in order to show you a crystal clear idea about how everything is going to work. Rest assured that we value and respect the hard work you have put into your characters and nothing will be lost, while the competition will be fair and rewarding.


Additionally, many reworks and fixes are being deployed to Algalon with the intention to polish everything as much as possible before this new era takes place. Also, more information about forthcoming Beta sessions will be posted, stay tuned.


We are really excited about what comes ahead, and we can’t wait to start with it and show you what we’ve been working on.
