Dalaran Wow 

Hello Koray, our rates will be x1, all is going to be Blizzlike (encounters, promotions, events…etc). We have 0% custom content.

About the migrations, we won’t have migrations yet (yes in a future for characters with high play time and that are from Retail or another x1 rate servers).

We do so because we want people to have the opportunity to win the Realm Firsts achievements for themselves.

About our website’s subscription, is not for Beta Access. If you have submitted your e-mail you will be notified about the Release date in 2 weeks more or less.

We can’t know how many players there will be first days, but we have ETA on a good ammount of players being there on the start. There are much players interested on joining us.

Nikolay Asenov

 I want to ask.When will the server be released,i mean 1st of July or after that and also,will the shadowmourne quest work?Thank you.

Dalaran Wow 

We do not know exactly the date yet but we will let you know when we do, don’t worry. It will be on early July, thats for sure.
About Shadowmourne, yes we have Shadowmourne’s quest working perfectly already.

Alexandru Daraban 

They all want Shadowmourne lol.. Could you tell aprox how many players are you expecting to have on the opening?

Alexandru Daraban 

how about the player cap for the first realm?

Dalaran Wow 

We can’t know how many players we will have on the opening. But there an insane amount of people subscribed and interested, much more than we expected.

Dalaran Wow 

We will start with 1.000 players as cap, and will go increasing it progressively.

Fabio Gayoso Maguiña 

Como haran con el sistema de donaciones? Seria bueno q exista limites sobre estas, sin eso se arruina el estilo server blizzlike

Dalaran Wow 

SPANISH:
Hola Fabio Gayoso Maguiña, nuestro sistema de donaciones es muy restrictivo, no te preocupes que lo hemos diseñado considerando varias limitaciones. La esencia Blizzlike no se verá afectada.

ENGLISH:
Hello Fabio, our donation system is very restrictive. Do not worry, we have designed it considering several limitations. The Blizzlike essence will not be affected.

June 28:

Many people asked us about this, so we will put it down here: website and the server will become public exactly on the same day. At that moment, people will be able to start using all of our services such as website control panel, forum tools, account managements, character management through the website…etc. Even some different services such as a “Refer a Friend”. We shall provide a full community system. Thank you for your interest, currently we are receiving tons of questions from a lot of people.

June 30:

Greetings and salutations,

We are proud to announce that Dalaran-WoW Official Release will be held on 20th July. The following days we’ll bit by bit, start revealing many features that have already been implemented.

Please, feel free to ask whatever you are interested in. 

Thank you all.

Comments:

Martin Netopil 

Didn’t you say EARLY July?

Dalaran Wow 

Yes, that was the original idea that we’ve thought of, it’s going to be successfully executed at the expense of the concrete information and a few details with the hosting, but the thing is we couldn’t know the exact date of the release.

Now, when we defined every single detail, we locked up that day as a final day of release. Making it public and being sure that it will go smoothly.

Patience is a virtue as they say, we don’t want to rush things.

Fabio Gayoso Maguiña 

How many bugs do yo think are gonna be? Or is gonna be a server with no bugs?

Dalaran Wow 

All we can say is that Dalaran-WoW will be the most bug free WOTLK private server you will find out there.

Cyrilian Almario 

is this will ba 3.3.5a? or 4.3.4?

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Cyrilian Almario, like Navizarian SG says, it will be 3.3.5a. You can find all the information you need here: https://dalaranwow.wordpress.com/2013/06/05/dalaran-wow-private-server-presentation/

Rafał Fundowicz 

Why to reveal features? Isn’t it supposed to be pure Blizzlike server?

 Dalaran Wow 

Hello Rafak, yes it will be.

But based on the questions we have received, we see many people who come from different private servers whom don’t know yet some Blizzard’s features that are going to find here.

Anyway, we also refer to the website.

 Henrique Shaadow 

Where will be the host? just to know if i will have some lag problems

Dalaran Wow 

Our first Realm’s Server will be located in France. We do not know yet where will be the rest of the servers located.

We will be improving our servers gradually, so do not worry.

Fabio Gayoso Maguiña 

Sounds great ^^
There will be donation sistem? and if there is one i hope people can’t donate for weapons and trinkets

Dalaran Wow 

Yes, there will be a donation system, very limited though. We have carefully selected every single item having in mind not to break the gameplay experience.

Filip Hajduk 

Great to hear that,finnaly not 90% of ppl with legendaries 

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Filip, of course not, those who want legendary weapons such The Shadowmourne for example, will have to work on completing the correspondent quest.

Eric Olarte Rodriguez 

Ulduar working? as well as realm first title for yogg saron?

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Eric, yes of course. Ulduar is working as well as realm first achievement after kill Yogg-Saron.

Eric Olarte Rodriguez 

Grats 

Irfan Nikocevic 

Will druid resil work completely because on other servers it dont works fine.

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Irfan, yes of course, all the classes resilience will work perfectly.

Irfan Nikocevic 

hmm I like that

July 1:

After receiving a lot of questions related to Pahfinding, Collision and Line of Sight system which is already implemented, we can clarify that it’s perfectly working. 

On Dalaran-WoW you won’t see mobs going through textures, terrain creatures flying after you, castable/channeling spells going through the walls…etc.

July 2:

We would like to share the following questions and answers with all of you, which were asked yesterday by one person (more specifically, user named Ghostifcationful) on our YouTube channel. Those questions will help everyone to clarify few more things related to our server and you can read them right here:

Ghostificationful:
Hello there. Got a couple of questions here, which, probably, not only I would be interested in. All about the things that make the server, like, different.
First: will there ever be a pathfinding system on it? If not for all the creatures in the world, then maybe only for guardians\minions at least? It requires a huge amount of work and some good hardware, but still, would be very nice to see.
I even think there is no WotLK server with this feature implemented correctly yet. You can be first.

Dalaran-WoW:
Hello Ghostificationful,
First of all, thank you for your interest.
1st: Yes of course, we have already implemented a perfectly working Pathfinding, Collision and Line of Sight system. You won’t see mobs going through textures, terrain creatures flying after you…etc, mostly all the creatures in the world have decent AI. Some initial testing on bosses still has to be done yet since they are the most important part of all the encounters.

Indeed, it does need a good hardware to execute everything properly, so we are going to settle a concrete server the first month after the official release as a product of “initial test”, and we shall improve it to a better one after the first month if it’s going to be necessary. We have arranged some future plans with hosting company already, no worries.

Ghostificationful:
Second: nothing ruins the immersion more like all those generic ‘Greetings Charname’ you see constantly in dialogue windows. Do you plan to deal with that or at least to have some swift-responding bug tracker that would allow _such_ things to be submitted on it?

Dalaran-WoW:
2nd: Of course not, we like details and we have focused on that kind of things since the very beginning. We want our users to enjoy as much as they can, while they are immersing themselves into the world. Anyway, the world is insanely large so there might be one of those tiny bugs here and there and if that is the case of course, you can freely report them on our public bug tracker. (in addition, we’ll fix them with a lot of joy, that’s for sure).

Ghostificationful:
Third one: nobody ever has made engineering working 100% well and good. Partially because of pathfinding system, I think, partially because usually there are more things to care about. Would you?

Dalaran-WoW:
3rd: Assuming that you are thinking about Software Engineering, we are going to work hard on making the most strong and stable base system, bit by bit we’ll continue to implement and rewrite some core features in the future.

But if you think of in-game engineering profession, at this moment it’s working just fine. Of course, the collisions and LoS are important here, so in consequence you can feel the result with this profession. Anyway, any kind of problem that our users will find, we’ll spend our effort on fixing it, as we said, details are one of the most important things to us.

Ghostificationful
Fourth one: will be there any auto-complete feature for, ohgosh, quest chains that got bugged (maybe after some update in the future) and overlooked after that? Or at least any GMs that’d be available at least at some guaranteed server time to complete them for specific characters? And how much time would be an average ticket response?

Dalaran-WoW:
4th: Yes, of course. If there is a reason you can’t complete the quest that is our fault, we are going to assist you in completing it anyhow we can. About GMs ingame, do not worry, we have complete team of professional people ready to help and do their duties. (We’ll start with 8 specialized and truthfull Game Masters and like we said in our presentation article, we know each other for a long time and we have a good, organized and fast comunication system with hierarchy established).

The average time on the tickets response will be variable, it depends on many factors. But as you can infer, most of the time it will be quick enough to answer all your questions or to assist you with any kind of problem.
We’ll also have a premium support through website.

Ghostificationful:
And fifth, the most important one: if you ever allow transfers from the first realm to the progressive one, how would you deal with all that gear which people will bring from ICC, Halion and such?
Also, lack of gear donations is nice, but one still must pay for server and I’m just curious if it can run properly without that.

Dalaran-WoW:
5th: Yes, this is an important one, we have discussed about many options for this but we haven’t choose one yet. Anyway, we can assure that the gameplay experience on the second Realm won’t be broken at all at any given point. Don’t worry, we thought carefully about this.

Yes, that is completely true, every single word. Like we said many times our donation shop will be restricted, but of course some things will be there in order to keep the server alive and at full mode.
In addition, we also have many premium services which are always following or finding equivalences to retail.

July 4:

We just realised that a lot of people who are asking about all the features that Dalaran-WoW will provide were previously playing on many other private servers where those features aren’t implemented. So, we decided that we are going to throw few of them right here for those who are not informed what kind of features Blizzard had in the days of Wrath of the Lich King expansion:

– Wintergrasp: If your faction is not dominating the current territory, you cannot access the instance (Vault of Archavon) to kill the bosses inside, at all.

– Battlegrounds: If your client crashes, let’s say you get disconnected from the server, or you decide to relog or anything else third that will close your WoW client while you are inside the Battleground, you will always log back in on the same exact spot where you logged off in the battleground and continue your game inside the BG without getting a debuff “Deserter”. (Of course, there will be a limited time to come back, approx 4-5 minutes max).

– When you are in Raid group in some instance, and if you decide to relog you will not be redirected upon logging in to the place where you set your hearthstone, after loggin in you won’t be bugged out or kicked from the raid group. Instead, you’ll be exactly on the same spot where you logged out.

– If you use the Random Dungeon Finder, you’ll have the buff called “Luck of the Draw” (http://www.wowhead.com/spell=72221/luck-of-the-draw) meanwhile you are doing the instance.

– PvP Line of Sight: Just a quick example: when some caster starts casting some spell to hit another player, if that target hides behind the wall, any kind of texture, object, the spellcast will stop automatically. This makes the game experience much more realistic. (For example, Arcane Missiles from a mage won’t go throught textures here). So basically, you won’t be able to cast or do any kind of damage through textures at all.

– Duels are allowed and working in Dalaran’s Underbelly.

– There aren’t any understandable Cross Faction chats or even Cross Faction Auction Houses (just the Goblin ones).

-No combat bug: If a combat bug occurs during the raid after the boss is dead or the trash is dead, the system will force check every player in the raid if he is in the combat bug and it will force him out of the combat.

This feature mostly stands for PvE aspect and the bosses. We cannot guarantee that it won’t happen in PvP since even on retail, this bug is present everywhere.

Ali FG Rvl 

You guys doing great job which i never saw in other private servers till now that buff for rdf and some other things i hope every single quests will be work fine. we are waiting for Release ! 

Dalaran Wow 

Hello, having a 100% workable quests running is a very difficult thing to achieve, and even harder on the start.

Anyway, we’ve already the most of the quests working and we shall continue to improve every single one of them so they can work as they are intended.

Ali FG Rvl 

that’s cool i hope that release will be faster then we can see every things. 

Budulis Lietuvis 

I don’t get this part(Arcane Missiles from a mage won’t go throught textures here). Channeled spells are supposed to continue even if targets go behind an object.

Dalaran Wow 

Maybe it was a bad example and it will bring up some misunderstandings.

What we meant with LoS and casts, is for example when you are going to cast a certain spell and your target hides behind any kind of object, your cast will be interrupted.

About channeled spells: Yes, the Line of Sight is done before the spell starts bein channeled and the target can not loose the LoS, he only can avoid the damage going out of Range.

July 5:

This is the second part of Dalaran-WoW Trilogy, which consist on showing why PvE, PvP players, and those who enjoy to live in Azeroth and use to focus on different challenges such as roleplaying, leveling, crafting…etc, can have a real motivation to establish their home with us.

3/3 will be for those who strive to explore, “feel” and relish Azeroth and Outlands.

Páll Þorsteinsson 

Will ICC have the 30% nerf buff ?

Dalaran Wow 

Yes, it will be enabled at start. But with time, we will enable the option to remove it for those who do not need Varian’s or Garrosh’s strength

July 8:

All those who are concerned about hackers and cheaters getting certain advantages in our server, no need to worry, Dalaran-WoW will have its own Anti-Cheat system active since the very first minute, but also, we will have a full team of GM’s watching every mischievous activity going on the server.

We know that it could be very irresistible for some users to use these kinds of techniques in order to get one or several of the Realm First achievements, for example. So, that is the reason that our GM’s will be on high alert to verify that all Realm Firsts are correctly earned, and will ban permanently the IP of those who try to get it through hacks or cheats.

Comments:

Eric Olarte Rodriguez

 Does this mean you will re-enable the realm first achievements if they are obtained via these sources?

Dalaran Wow 

Yes, of course, we would reset the achievement and people would get permanent IP ban.

Anyways, we will be (in the case of raids), watching every attempt, looking if people are abusing any kind of instance, patrolling areas meanwhile people is leveling…

Of course, a GM never will interfere in the users Gameplay, they will be invisible.

Also, please refrain from naming hacks here, so it doesn’t give ideas to new comers.

Dalaran-WoW will have ZERO tolerance when it comes to hackers or exploiters.

Damn King 

how will you recruit gm?

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Damn King. Currently we are not recruiting any GMs, as we said already we are going to start with a good number of them from the very beginning. Anyway, in the future if we have to recruit more, we will announce that to our community over website in a dedicated place for it.

Eric Olarte Rodriguez 

These hacks arent really hacks, they are tools used by the GMs to work around, if someone else finds out what tool your server uses, then you might wanna be changing that sporadically

Dalaran Wow 

When someone uses any kind of client side software that allows you to do certain things that your account level is not allowed to, it will be considered a hack.

Anyways, we are totally aware about these kinds of “tools”, so in the exact moment one of our GMs see the minimum evidence that some player is using it (ANY evidence), that player will be automatically permanently banned.

In fact, a few weeks ago we generated an environment in which our GMs where training themselves to track and detect this kind of behavior, in order to be able to use our awesome Ban Hammer

July 10:

We have made a video explaining the advantages that our Premium users will have. You can see and hear them in this voice-guide video.

Of course, all the information through the website is a simple example that we have created for the video.

Comments:

Saul Goodman 

Doesn’t it kinda destroy the gameplay to have shadowmourne for sale to donators ? 

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Saul Goodman, as you all can see in exactly the minute 03:32, there is a tooltip on the right side, where there is already explained that is just an example.

We will not have the Shadowmourne, or any kind of items which can break the user gameplay. We had filled the Donation shop with several items of different qualities, in order to show them on the video and internal website tests. But of course, they will not be there after the release, do not worry.

We hope this solved any kind of doubt, regard to Shadowmourne.

Thank you.

Tomas Atanasov 

So , once you donate .. you are premium forever ? Or you must donate for specific amount of $$ and the time is limited ?

 Dalaran Wow 

Hello Tomas Atanasov. Exactly, once you donate with your account, it will be permanently upgraded to Premium Status. There won’t be any other conditions, whatever sum of money we have available for donation that you decide to donate, you will forever stay a Premium Member.

Robin Hasselgren 

will we be able to donate before the server releases? and howw long will it take for the account to become premium

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Robin Hasselgren, all the features will be active with the server release, so no, you will not be able to donate before. The upgrade of the account is instant. Thank you for your interest.

Ivan Pučić 

why are pets like 20 donate points, and shadowmourne is 25 :S

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Ivan, like we said many times, those are just examples. Shadowmourne will not be able through donations and that items and points are just random for our internal tests.

Vedran Marinković 

will there be royal donatores like on morlterns? i scared can’t go players verse player coz shadowmorne.. and ples fix gupish so sarufang can’t crossed our ship! will there be singardosa figt?

Ivan Pučić 

oh thank god there will be no shadowmourne, in donate shop..im playin here 100% looking forward to it ! and ty guise for great work 

Vedran Marinković 

i will taek metal umberal for maksimum proktestio

Nathan Evaristo Pereda 

In the video, it shows that Shadowmourne will not be available for donators. Only things like pets.

Ivan Pučić 

i think it shows that you CAN donate for it..look at 4:00

Dalaran Wow 

Ivan Pučić, please take a look at 03:32 and read the tooltip on the right.

Filip Hajduk 

Hi again..so i have question about donating.Will there be some option where someone else can donate money for different person? Im asking that because i see alot of ppl that have that small ammount of money,but dont have access to credit cards,their country is in the middle of nowhere so internet banking term is like a myth and so on.Keep up the good work,looking forward to play on your server.

Vladimir Rancic 

this is a good point actually. Because on most other servers where you needed donations, you had to provide someone else with your username and password in order to get payed, thus exposing your account to the risk of being hacked. Many servers even forbid “trading donations” for this very reason. Implementing this kind of option would prevent any account theft caused by donations, and maybe even increase overall number of donations, now that players would be safe donating for others / accepting donations from others.

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Filip Hajduk. Yes, there will be some implemented option in the future to allow donations from another person. We are still working on that though, but we don’t really have ETA on the release, maybe it will take a bit more time but we’ll have it available soon.

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Ben Caspy, End-Game Pve content will have accurate Blizzlike scripts, we have worked a lot on it to have all the roleplays, scenes and all the possible details for each boss out there available. Of course, if everything is not working we will work on that until it’s perfected.

Anyway, heroic mode instances will be unavailable to players from the beginning to allow our community to conquer and achieve normal content first and then heroic later.

By the way, we have some Lordaeron Beta Testers and they are amazed with the quality of the scripts.

July 13:

DALARAN-WOW REQUEST: 

Hello all, 

We understand the request Lilqn Lukov has made and we would like to know what the people who are interested in joining us think about this. 

He requested a video showing few things of the current content, like some bosses and features. We didn’t show anything of this, thinking about not spoiling anything because we understand that most likely there will be many people who prefer to discover it on their own.

Our request is: Say here if you want to see before the release a video with some High-End boss scripts and other features from Dalaran-WoW, or no. Just say if you are agree or disagree with this on the comments below. If a lot people want to see it, we will have it ready in one or two days.

As you can understand, all the staff is insanely busy so the video wouldn’t be too long.

Thank you.

Dalaran Wow The majority agrees with the video as we can see, so we will start working on it tomorrow and we will publish it around these days. Thank you for your participation and the vote you gave including a private messages.

Hello community,

For those who has already subscribed with your e-mail onwww.dalaran-wow.com, we have found an equivalence present like Blizzard did in the past for all those who were first, with one e-mail improvement. So, if those who signed stay active for full 6 months, they will get a loyalty present directly from Dalaran-WoW as a token of being such a great support.

We will not reveal the present even if you ask for it, it has to be maintained as a surprise. Of course, don’t expect something special that Blizzard didn’t gift to their players before.

On the side note, you still have time to subscribe until this Friday (July 18th).

hello what did you mean by subscribing? i sent my email to that notify option thingy and it said that i will be contacted soon and i didnt get anything 

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Nikola Aleksic, yes exactly there. We will send in 1-2 days a reminder to those people who subscribed because, like we said, this reminder will be sent a few days before the release. Thanks.

Nikola Aleksic 

thanks  looking forward to the release

Kern ForeverUnited Vidal 

i just wanted to ask if this is the place to ask questions ? or there some other area i dont know about?

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Kern ForeverUnited Vidal, people is asking us via e-mail mostly (admin@dalaran-wow.com) or even via Private message here on Facebook.

Kern ForeverUnited Vidal 

ok thanks for taking the time to respond 

July 19:

Hello community, 

We are a bit delayed answering some of your questions, these past days a lot has been spent for final preparations and for the release, all the staff members are giving their best, even the community manager is helping with the last details. 

First of all, thank you all for your support and your great words we really appreciate them. As you all probably know, we are receiving insanely amount of questions in all the possible ways (private messages, e-mails, social networks…etc), we are trying to answer all in arriving order and avoiding answering the questions that have already been answered several times.

We have noticed that many people are asking some things related Refer a Friend feature. Seems that we didn’t clarify that the extra features (x3 experience, summon and grant a level) will not be enabled until the realm first class and race achievements are taken, or else, it wouldn’t be fair for those who play alone.

Anyways, you can refer without problems and the system will be enabled in the same moment that the achievements are earned, so you will benefit from all the features if you refered from the start. The only features that are disabled are the leveling ones, so if you refer tomorrow, you will be able to get both mounts (Rocket and Zevhra if you meet the requirements to get it) and after the achievements are earned, your account will be linked with your friend’s, and you will be able to enjoy the extra features (x3, summon and grant a level).

The official release will be at 16:30 GMT+1 Time and in that moment you can start creating your account, refering and playing.
Answering to all those who already have the 3.3.5a client, you just have to change the realm list to ours, which you will be able to see on the website tomorrow.

“Citizens of Dalaran! Raise your eyes to the skies and observe!” – Rhonin, Kirin Tor leader.

The server is gonna be only english? Or spanish too?

Dalaran Wow 

Hello there Fabio, it’s an international server where the main language on global chats shall be English. Though, there’ll be people from all over the world

 Fabio Gayoso Maguiña 

Ok, and just to know, there is not to be donation for gear items right?=

Dalaran Wow 

No, there won’t ben any high-end game gear available through our Donation Shop. As we said many times, our Donation Shop will be very restricted in the term of gear, there’ll be only items no longer available in-game.

how many players are you expecting when the server starts?

Dalaran Wow 

We can’t know the exact number that we will have at the start. All we can say is that we already have an insane amount of people interested on joining us since the very beginning.

Nikolay Asenov 

great!

Nikolay Asenovposted toDalaran Wow

I want to ask about the donation.Will people be able to get items or just mounts,glyphs..etc..

Robin Hasselgren 

I belive you wont be able to get glyphs. They’ve stated that it will be a restricted shop and glyphs can be sold on the AH for gold. I belive you will be able to find mounts/pets/vanity items in the shop

Nikolay Asenov 

yeah thats what i want to know..because if people can get items it would be stupid.

Dalaran Wow 

Hello, as Robin Hasselgren says, there will be items on Donation Shop, but items such a Glyphs, of course not. Easy obtainable items won’t be there.


Filip Hajdukposted toDalaran Wow

Hey..one more question..will there be proper scripting in end game raids,because now,as i see it,real bosses people are fighting are bugs not actual bosses?

Dalaran Wow 

Yes of course,we have a have a very good quality scripts, we are sure you all will enjoy it. Of course, our encounters are totally based on Blizzard’s retail.

Nathan Evaristo Peredaposted toDalaran Wow

I have a question.
All private servers that I am aware of open with the last patch of the expansion. Are you going to open with 3.3.5, with the spell changes and effect changes? Or are you going to open with 3.0?

Alexandru Daraban 

They said that they will start with the 3.3.5 Realm first and after a while they will open a second one a progressive realm that will start from 3.0.1 . You can read more here in their presentation:https://dalaranwow.wordpress.com/2013/06/05/dalaran-wow-private-server-presentation/

Nathan Evaristo Pereda 

I noticed the two (three) separate realms, but I did not see where they specifically stated whether or not realm 1 would start at 3.3.5.

Robin Hasselgren 

first realms will probably be 3.3.5

second realm I’m not sure becuase of that dalaran-wow wrote on their presentation “we will publish the updates and instances gradually in exactly the same chronological order in which Blizzard did in his days for WOTLK”.

This makes me a little confused if the 2nd server will go from 3.0.1 or if it will start at 3.3.5 and remove instance portals for the raids that the dev dont want to be raided from the start

Dalaran Wow 

Hello, we had considered the option of starting the second realm with the patch 3.0.1 and develop a special Dalaran-WoW Launcher which would download the correspondent patches to our users.

But at the end, we have decided make it easier because, afterall, what we want for the second Realm is to always be progressive so, even once the content is published, people still will have the restrictions to enter into certain Raids/Instances, making the Realm a eternal progressive one.

This means, if someone joins right after the launch, he will experiment the same that one who joins 6 months after. Of course, there will be a lot of limitations that we will explain before the second Realm’s release (like vendors restrictions…etc all according to each character’s progression).

PvP of course, will be also totally progressive.

Let’s solve your doubts:

First Realm, “Kirin Tor”: Patch 3.3.5a.
Second Realm: Patch 3.3.5a.

Robin Hasselgren 

the only difference I guess is that the player that joins 6 months later will be able to get boosted though the raids 

Also will the next raid be raid able right after you’ve done the last raid? For example. You finish naxx/eoe/os, are you then able to just enter ulduar or will the entrances be locked until a certain time

Dalaran Wow 

Both are correct, right after the release we’ll wait untill few guilds clean the current content which is opened and then we’ll enable the next challenges.

Robin Hasselgren 

ty for the fast answer 

July 4:

Nathan Evaristo Peredaposted toDalaran Wow

How many players will the server be able to hold with stability? I know at least 1000 people will want to play on your impeccably made server, so hopefully it isn’t a 1000 player cap?

 Dalaran Wow 

Hello Nathan,

For the start, Kirin Tor will have a 1.000 players online cap. We will go increasing it as needed, never more than 4.500.

About stability, like we have answered to Ghostificationful with: “we are going to settle a concrete server the first month after the official release as a product of “initial test”, and we shall improve it to a better one after the first month if it’s going to be necessary. We have arranged some future plans with hosting company already, no worries.”, the first month we will have a “test” dedicated server and we will be constantly monitoring the perfomance, if there is any kind of problem (Lag, overload…etc), we will immediately request the new dedicated one, as we have arranged already with our hosting company.

Anyways, the first server should be good enough for hosting all the incoming users.

We also have a premium feature that will allow the users to skip queues when there exist, but we will explain all services this kind of accounts will benefit from before the release, do not worry.

Nathan Evaristo Pereda 

Thank you for the speedy, concise reply! Very professional. I hope the pop cap goes up, but it makes sense to open it up with 1000,

Well… I think… Maybe you can give more information in Spanish, because some people don´t know a lot english…

For instance : ENGLISH : This is the second part of Dalaran-WoW Trilogy

ESPAÑOL : Esta es la segunda parte de Dalaran- Wow Trilogía

Suena prometedor.. éxitos. !

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Andres:

We appreciate your interest, but we cannot do this. If we do it, will be a bit unfair to the rest of the people that also speaks another language instead of english. We are an International server so all the news and publications will be on an international language (english). There will be section on the website to speak and participate in different languages, for now the only help we can offer to your friends is answering them by private message.

Thank you very much for your interest and your suggestion.

Nathan Evaristo Peredaposted toDalaran Wow

I have another question for you.
I understand that you are opening with 3.3.5a. Does that mean LFD will be available? I am not asking in hope but fear. Aside from that, LFD is slightly pointless if there is only one or two servers.
What are the plans with that, if I may ask?

Robin Hasselgren 

considering that it’s WOTLK it should be open and you will probably be able to join it at lvl 15+.

I think it could be quite usefull considering not everybody will join a world chat channel and when it finds 3 dps, 1 healer, 1 tank the que pops. The “LFD” I belive was changed to RDF (random dungeon finder) and the program will set up your group for you so you don’t have to check every min if a tank is looking for a group.

Nathan Evaristo Pereda Indeed, I meant Random Dungeon Finder, not LFD. lol. I felt that RDF took away from the community a little bit and made it so we didn’t have to travel

Robin Hasselgren

no travel = faster lvling

Nathan Evaristo Pereda

I know, hah! Just a fools hope that it would be more difficult lol

Dalaran Wow

On Kirin Tor it will be working, like Robin said, people will be able to join it as soon as you reach level 15.

Otherwise, we are still thinking about implementing this tool or not on the second realm.

Sky Clawposted toDalaran Wow

Is there gonna be open GM / Moderator applications?

Dalaran Wow

Hello Sky: Currently we are not recruiting any GMs, as we said already we are going to start with a good number of them from the very beginning.

The same with Moderators.

Sky Claw

Eh, that’s not cool. Because GM’s or at least moderators should be some new people, not only your friends, so people make sure there won’t be any cheats from your side.

Im curious what connection and host you have prepared. Calling all hardcore pvpers means that you realize that with high ms ingame ppl are not able to show their maximum potential. Where will be the server located? And one more question about delay. Too high ingame ms or too low ingame ms are both not the exactly same as retail. There was a specific delay there that for example allowes rogues to vanish a blind. Im curious what you have prepared.Keep the awsome work, this preview rly impressed me!

Robin Hasselgren

I belive they have stated that realm nr1 will be in france

Dalaran Wow

Hello Ivan Kanev,

As Robin mentioned, our first host will be located in France.

If you don’t mind I will quote you a related answer we did a few days ago: “we are going to settle a concrete server the first month after the official release as a product of “initial test”, and we shall improve it to a better one after the first month if it’s going to be necessary. We have arranged some future plans with hosting company already, no worries”.

Anyway, this “test” server should be more than enough to host flawless the incoming players with low latency.

Thanks.

Никола Рајчевић Џониposted toDalaran Wow

Im interested about Recruit friend option… Are we going to get swift zhevra mount as they awarded on retail for this option… This would be great and bring more bizzlike spirit to the server.

One more thing what interest me … When u open second/maybe third realm in future … Is it posibile to make dungeon finder to work cross realms like on retail ?

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Никола Рајчевић Џони:
When Blizzard had WOTLK expansion active there were two different promotions for feature “Refer a Friend”. In the first one, they rewarded the users with the “Swift Zhevra” mount, but after a while they changed this reward with the “X-53 Touring Rocket” mount, making impossible to get Zevhra ever again if you used “Refer a Friend” after the change.

So, we thought making available to get both mounts, the normal one
which will be X-53 Touring Rocket with the rest of the characterstics and the “extra” one which will be the Zevhra if someone achieves to refer 5 friends successfuly. They will have level up until level 15 or more though(to avoid some creation of a dummy accounts). There will not be any other way to get those mounts, they will be exclusive to those users that refer a friend to play with on Dalaran-WoW.

About your second question, we have already started to rewrite some core parts in order to have future Cross Realm feature for Random Dungeon Finder and Random Battlegrounds. Though, this is a very delicated and tedious feature and it will take some time.

Thank you for your interest, best wishes.

Robin Hasselgren cross realm battleground will probably not be active imo considering that people on realm 1 will be able to have all gear able in wotlk while realm nr2 will start with only naxx

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Robin:

Cross Realm Battleground will be available when at least a part of the community on the progressive realm is raiding in ICC for example. We will enable this feature not to benefit any realm more than another. Also to be clear we will not set it up until we have 3 active realms as a minimum

Никола Рајчевић Џони 

If i understand this good. If i refer one friend and he achive lvl 15 … I will get rocket mount and if i get 4 more i will get zhevrah…. Does my friend geting mount as well or only me ? And can i chose on what character mount will go ?

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Никола Рајчевић Џони :

Your friend will be able to get the mounts, if he follows the same steps as you to get them, do not worry we have prepared a FAQ article about this feature explaining how works and how to benefit from all the advantages.

Of course you will have the option of choose to what character the mount will go with an easy management through website.

Thanks.

modes of donation with time, do not worry about that. Thanks for your
interest and your suggestion.

Yousef Abbas
posted toDalaran Wow

Omg this server seemed interesting you guys claimed that there wouldn’t be anything custom.
1. V.I.P treatmant for donators?
2. DONATION Shop
3. Pay to be special
This will be like one of those other shitty servers who cares more about the ones who pay.

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Yousef:

Even Blizzard has different accounts services if you pay or you do not. In fact they also have some extra features available in their shop, and the users had to pay for them. We just made equivalence with these kinds of services, because we want to reward the economical help that our users donate to Dalaran-WoW.

1. The treatment will be exactly the same to both kinds of users. The only difference is that a Premium user can make a ticket through the website support tickets system (all users will be able to contact a GM via private message in the website). The answers that Dalaran-WoW staff will provide through the website, forums or in-game, will be totally unconditional and unbiased.

2. Since the beginning we mentioned that our Donation Shop will be there and would be a very limited one. Of course only the user who donates will be able to access the Donation Shop, the same as Blizzard does with their store and their TGC loot (the only way to obtain some special items was paying for them).

3. No, donate to support the server, and with that support users are helping the community, so we in return are offering some characteristics (not at all game breaking), the content and quality of the gameplay will be exactly the same for all players, the same with the support from Dalaran-WoW staff. The only thing that makes the Premium users “special” in-game, is the pet: Core Hound Pup. We cannot offer the services of the Authenticator (the only way to get that pet in Retail is buy this extra service of protection), so we offered it to the users that donate towards Dalaran-WoW as a token of gratitude since they are helping the community.

We are a server that cares about our members (Premium Users or non-Premium Users) the status of the accounts does not entitle a player to special treatments.

Henrique Shaadowposted toDalaran Wow

What about transmog ? i’ve seen some servers with this system, so i have to ask

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Henrique:

Transmogrification is a feature released with Patch 4.3.0, so even if it is Blizzlike, it will not be available for our realms, because we will stay
faithful to the WOTLK expansion.

Janez Kuhar 

That wouldn’t be blizzlike for WotLK. So I guess not

Lilqn Lukovposted toDalaran Wow

I really like the things i just saw here and on the website.But there is something that makes me a little suspicious.Atm i am playing on another server which presents itself like 99% working scripts,instances,classes,etc.But things are not like that at all when u get inside.I think in order for us to rly believe that your server will have so much working things,u should do something more.My proposition is this:Make a lifestream one of the days before the realm is released and show us those features u mentioned ingame…this is fairly easy u can use twitch or other such webside.Just show me your gamemasters clearing ulduar and fighting in Wintergrasp and me and a lot of other players will be yours for a long time!I dont want to do the huge grind with the bliz xp rate,only to realise that this scripts actually arent implemented.We,private server players have seen a lot of empty advertisement,do sth for us so we believe it for real 

Dalaran Wow 

Hello Lilqn:

Your proposition is interesting, we already made a post asking our future users if they want to see it in a video or not. Our words will be
accomplished and we will continue working until our server is by far the
most clean and the best private server focused on WOTLK with all the
content working, as we said in the trailer and the presentation article.

We want to make the Home of the WOTLK players here. Our players will see a constant work and dedication in the server and the in community needs.

Thanks.

Yes, we have most of the cases working. We are still testing and improving it though, there are some special cases we need to review.

jacob Smith 

Wotlk is, pve-wise, one of the most poor expansions. Your first realm will be just like any other server. You will rush your ass to 80, in a few days you have enough gear to do Icecrown Citadel, which is an incredibly boring raid, and after that yousit on your ass in Dalaran because there’s nothing much to do.

DalaranWoWcommunity 

@PinoySolstice: Thank you, hope to see you there afterthe release.

@jacob Smith: We have explained all in our blog, you can check it out in the Information.

Tobi 

Stop complaining people your just heading on Molten private server but that oneexcists for already 4 years and thats why they gathered many players cause the Wrath of The Lich King realms were gone at retail and went to the new expansion cataclysm and thats why molten went to make a WOTLK private server so the retail players could experience the fights and encounters once again and such as they love the content too.

So please do not interupt this server by posting negative comments..

Kenan Fišeković

A friend of mine told me about this. I stopped playing wow last year, but I am actually looking forward to try this server out. I hopethat you guys won’t give up after a few weeks as all other private servers cuz they can’t get a decent player base in the first few weeks..

DalaranWoWcommunity 

Hello Kenan, will be a pleasure having you on the release. Of course we won’t give up, as you can read in our blog’s presentation, we are already growing as a strongand stable Home to be. Do not worry about the players, we have a good amount of them interested.

CaliburMusic 

Ine of my dreams is to start a lvl 1 twink population somewhere. i cant find people who play lvl 1s anywhere except for retail 😦 This server looks ideal for it, though. I hope someonewill join or help me with this, really looking forward to the server! ^^

Yup, I think I might become a part of this server and the community. Been awhile since the last good wotlk server. I like the effort you guys have put especially the presentation blog and explaining everything, I also can’t wait for the second server where everything will be blizzlike release. I signed up and waiting for your email guys I hope it’s soon so I can take work vacation and play for like 5-6 days and enjoy myself. Keep up the good work and thank you for this.

I don’t wannastick my nose into things but for the second real just don’t allow transfer, k thanks and much love

DalaranWoWcommunity 

Our Transfers from first realm tothe second one, will be very restricted. It won’t break the gameplay experience for no one.

WhiteWidowmaker92 

transfers wouldbe great! And if not, the ability to transfer some heirlooms to the other server so we can level a character faster that way would be good.

WhiteWidowmaker92 

after the first realm is released, howlong until the second will be released?

DalaranWoWcommunity 

We do not have accurate information about the release of the second realm yet, but we’ll make sure that we keep our community informed though. Anyway, there might possibly betransfers from the first realm to the second one.

Watershed92 

Willthat shitty Looking For Dungeon system be on this realm? I hope not, it was part of the reason I quit retail wow.

PurePhunkTv 

yeah I don’t think looking for dungeon system is any good and that’s why I also quit wow. I loved to get together with guild members or other people trough chat and then argue whohas an epic mount and fly there to summon, good stuff 🙂

DalaranWoWcommunity 

Hello Watershed, on the first realm yes, it is already implemented. But on the progressiveone we probably won’t.

How’s Pvp goint o be onyour progression realm?

PvP will be also progressive, making public theseasons and the correspondent gear gradually (as well as the battlegrounds, in concordance with the PvE content).

Rok Galun 

May I ask what is the first song called?Looking foward on playing here 🙂

DalaranWoWcommunity 

Hello Rok,first song is called: Audiomachine – Land Of Shadows.

ghostificationful 

Hello there. Got a couple of questions here, which, probably, not only I would be interested in. All about the things that make the server, like, different.

First: will there ever be a pathfinding system on it? If not for all the creatures in the world, then maybeonly for guardians\minions at least? It requires a huge amount of work and some good hardware, but still, would be very nice to see.

I even think there is no WotLK server with this feature implemented correctly yet. You can be first.

DalaranWoWcommunity 

Hello Ghostificationful,

First of all, thank you for your interest.

1st: Yes of course, we have already implemented a perfectly working Pathfinding, Collisionand Line of Sight system. You won’t see mobs going through textures, terrain creatures flying after you…etc, mostly all the creatures in the world have decent AI. Some initial testing on bosses still has to be done yet since they are the most important part of all the encounters.

DalaranWoWcommunity 

Indeed, it does need a good hardware to execute everything properly, so we are going to settle a concrete server the first month after the official release as a product of “initial test”, and we shall improve it to a better one after the first month if it’s going to be necessary. We have arranged some future planswith hosting company already, no worries.

ghostificationful

Second: nothing ruins the immersion more like all those generic ‘Greetings Charname’ yousee constantly in dialogue windows. Do you plan to deal with that or at least to have some swift-responding bug tracker that would allow _such_ things to be submitted on it?

DalaranWoWcommunity

2nd: Of course not, we like details and we have focused on that kind of things since the very beginning. We want our users to enjoy as much as they can, while they are immersing themselves into the world. Anyway, the world is insanely large so there might be one of those tiny bugs here and there and if that is the case of course, you can freely report them on our public bug tracker. (in addition,we’ll fix them with a lot of joy, that’s for sure).

ghostificationful 

Third one: nobody ever has made engineering working 100% well and good. Partially because of pathfinding system, I think, partially because usually there are more things to care about. Would you?

DalaranWoWcommunity 

3rd:Assuming that you are thinking about Software Engineering, we are going to work hard on making the most strong and stable base system, bit by bit we’ll continue to implement and rewrite some core features in the future.

But if you think of in-game engineering profession, at this moment it’s working just fine. Of course, the collisions and LoS areimportant here, so in consequence you can feel the result with this profession. Anyway, any kind of problem that our users will find, we’ll spend our effort on fixing it, as we said, details are one of the most important things to us.

ghostificationful 

Fourth one: will be there any auto-complete feature for, ohgosh, quest chains that got bugged (maybe after some update in the future) and overlooked after that? Or at leastany GMs that’d be available at least at some guaranteed server time to complete them for specific characters? And how much time would be an average ticket response?

DalaranWoWcommunity

4th: Yes, of course. If there is a reason you can’t complete the quest thatis our fault, we are going to assist you in completing it anyhow we can. About GMs ingame, do not worry, we have complete team of professional people ready to help and do their duties. (We’ll start with 8 specialized and truthfull Game Masters and like we said in our presentation article, we know each other for a long time and we have a good, organized and fast comunication system with hierarchy established).

The average time on the tickets responsewill be variable, it depends on many factors. But as you can infer, most of the time it will be quick enough to answer all your questions or to assist you with any kind of problem.

We’ll also have a premium support through website.

ghostificationful 

And fifth, the most important one: if you ever allow transfers from the first realm to the progressiveone, how would you deal with all that gear which people will bring from ICC, Halion and such?

Also, lack of gear donations is nice, but one still must pay for server and I’m just curious if it can run properly without that.

DalaranWoWcommunity 

5th: Yes, this is an important one, we have discussed about many options for this but we haven’t choose one yet. Anyway, we can assure that the gameplay experience on the second Realm won’t be broken at allat any given point. Don’t worry, we thought carefully about this.

Yes, that is completely true, every single word. Like we said many times our donation shop will be restricted, but of course some things will be there in order to keep the server alive and at full mode.

In addition, we also have many premium services which are always following or finding equivalences toretail.

ghostificationful 

Thanks in advance. Answers on these questions decide if me, my friends and probably more people wouldplay here and try to make it better.

Cheers.

DalaranWoWcommunity 

Thank you for such detailed questions, as you said, many people are also curious when it comes to questions like these, if you do not mind, wewill post them on our Facebook page too.

ghostificationful 

Ofcourse. Thanks for the swift feedback, looking forward to see you in-game ;j

Kaargg 

Dang, I wish the progressive realm was outfirst.

Kaargg 

That wont stop me playing herethough! this looks epic.

Miljan Grubanović 

I played at a lot of private servers and most of them are crap. Exceptfor molten, until all realms came to Lordaeron and the players became egomaniacs. Anyway, most of the things that annoyed me with other servers were the things that ghostificationful mentioned, but i have few questions of my own. 1st: Will there be cross faction chat? 2nd: With which patch will you start the server? Thank you in advance and i hope that the server will go online soon.

DalaranWoWcommunity 

Hello Miljan,

1st – There won’t never be cross faction chat, this would be a clear non-blizzlike feature which we automatically refuse it.

2nd – We will start with the patch 3.3.5a.

Thank you for your interest, ourofficial release is scheduled on July 20th.

Miljan Grubanović 

Great. I have one last question andit’s a big one. What should i play?

Nathan Evaristo Pereda 

I have a question! What is the population cap for these servers? I hope it isn’t 1000. You’ll have a lot morepeople than that! The effort you put into this will be noticed. It already is.

I hope a lot of effort is also put forth to keep the community as amiable as possible!

DalaranWoWcommunity 

Hello again Nathan,

We have alreadyanswered you on our Facebook page.

Thanks.

kuristofa c 

when will be the server okay can I play it here at PH is it Payto play like WoW? hope its not

DalaranWoWcommunity 

Hello Kurisofa,

The server will be released on July 20th and yes of course, its totally free toplay.

You can freely donate to economically support our server maintenance.

Thank you.

HellOwnerz 

Very nice video. Hopefully server willbe nice aswell. 🙂

Wrath Redemption 

So, this realm will be 100% blizzlike, withnothing custom at all? Nothing a little custom?

DalaranWoWcommunity 

Hello Keldrick, the only thing which could be considered custom is our donation/vote shop.But as we have explained already many times, will be very restricted and limited. So it will not break the game experience at all.

We are totally Blizzlike and even with things such as events or promotions, we have tried to design and develop the correspondant equivalences. For example, things like Blizzard Authenticator, Aniversary gifts, Refer a Friend rewards…etc.

We will keep the WOTLK essence.

Wrath Redemption

only those? you justleeft out the part that people who donate can be premium users… wtf?

paismovicard

BULLSHIT. I had an interest of joining this realm, but when you guys just released the video about the features for PREMIUM users. I didn’t evenwanna finish the video. That donators gets extra features and don’t have to que and shit. And that they have pruple auras so people will know that they are the special ones. Fuck this shit. I had a big interest for this server, but now with the fucked up premium features thing, I just thought fuck this shit.

RenegadePhunk 

it’s better not having whinybitches like you on this server, move along please

TjcQTPIxoxoxo

The purple aura surrounded them is on the forum mate. A purple aura around there avatar, not in-game rofl.

Donators get to skip the queue (There isn’t even any queues right now) andhave other small features which do not affect the gameplay whatsoever.

DalaranWoWcommunity 

As you mentioned yourself: “extra features” – That doesn’t mean that the currently available features will be needed to play the game. About the purple auras, they will soon be optional in the future (you’d have a choice if you want toshow it to the community or not).

We are a private server as you know and all the support we’ll get from our users will go to upgrade the servers such as hosting services, security measures, so that way all the players will benefit from donations.

Our premium features aren’t breaking gameplay experience at all on our servers, blizzlike essence is still kept untouched.

You can disagree with them but wearen’t “punishing” the non premium users in any way, just rewarding with small gifts those who support us.

TjcQTPIxoxoxo

Hi, Really interested in joining your server as it seems to be what I’ve always been looking for in a private server. I pretty much only do arena so I’m wondering, will there be arena seasons the same as retail? Also will it ever be possible to donate for ICC or RS gear in the donor shop? Because I’d like to play arena on a server which is very similar to how it was on retail where itwasn’t very often you would see someone with end game PVE gear which highly imbalances the game.

DalaranWoWcommunity

Hello TjcQTPIxoxoxo:

Answering to your question: yes, the arena seasons will be exactly released as on the WOTLK expansion. Even most of the news we are posting on our social networks are related to PvE content, we have also focused on PvP too. Do not worry, we have not forgot good, old Wotlk PvP.

As we said before, our donation shop will be very restricted and will not break the gameplay experience at anypoint whether in PvE or PvP aspect.

Thank you.

Best wishes.

Giedrius Podlipskas

will you be releasing patches one by one? what i mean is icc toc ulduar and higher pvp tiers wont be avaible just when the server opens andthose instances and higher tiers will be patched one by one when time goes on? i think thats what makes server good

DalaranWoWcommunity

Our first realm sill be opened without any restrictions to enjoy the currently released content (only the normal requirements), the second realm will be progressive.We thought on the idea of adding patches, but we want an eternal progressive realm, that will be totally equal for players that join the realm at the earlybeginning or later. So we will lock the raids/dungeons in the same chronological order that Blizzard published even when all the content is already published.

Martin CHIRA 

Nice.. really nice… I’ll join u guys, but when cani dowloand the server or the patch?

DalaranWoWcommunity 

Hello Martin CHIRA:

We will make public our torrent in our social networks, but anyways all the information willbe on our website too.

Thanks.

Masuta Doragonzu 

Can I play it on Philippines? If I can isit like wow that u need to pay money for me to play?

DalaranWoWcommunity 

Hello Masuta:

Yes, you’ll definetly be able to play from Philippines and you won’t need to pay any money to play. It’s a matter of choice if you want to donate to Dalaran-WoW to support them and in exchange you’ll be rewarded with some points to spend in their shop and youraccount will be upgraded to a “Premium User” account. You can check most of the features for that type of account in this video: Dalaran WoW Premium Features Overlook – Voice Guide Included.

Thanks for your interest.

ghostificationful

Btw guys, will there beany kind of in-game chats moderation and if yes, which things will be allowed and which wouldn’t?

DalaranWoWcommunity 

Hello again ghostificationful:

Yes, they will have chat moderators and they will publish on the websitetopics about the behaviour rules and guidelines.

Hello MystakesWoW, no Dalaran-WoW will be only focused on the Wrath ofthe Lich King expansion.

Cuddlebuglol 

Looking very forward to this! i just hope there will be little to nobugs and everything working as intended, sick of Moltens bugs and lag ;D

brotalnia 

so does this mean the server will start from the first version of wotlk and progress through the patches? it would be great to play with the early wotlk spells/talents, i really miss my Sealof the Martyr and the old version of Seal of Command 😀

Tyszuszek

licuriciftw 

Shadowmorune will be obtainable from quests or donation ? dont say donationsplz 😀

i think this server will bebetter than sex

xDarkPheonix1 

This site looks fantastic.I’ll be making my characters on Dalaran WoW when it opens.

EdgCatman 

the server is from ? what’sthe GMT ?

DalaranWoWcommunity 

Hello EdgCatman:

The dedicated server will be located inFrance.

Thanks.

hectorian0 

you saying normal users cannot make alliance and horde characters… what aboutif people make 2 account 1 for horde and 1 for alliance?

xDarkPheonix1 

In the beginning, Blizz didn’t allow users on PvP servers to make Horde AND Ally characters on the same account. They claimed it was against the spirit of the game because it allowed a person to run around as Horde and track other Horde characters then quickly log to their Ally characterand go run them down and kill them. But Blizz lifted this restriction around the same time they allowed PVE characters to move to PvP servers, which screwed PvP’ers who geared up the traditional and harder way.

Stefan Andrei 

I hope the server hasa very low xp

archmagemagus 

From the menu visible at 10:01 what’s the difference between “Refer an Account”and “Recruit a Friend”? And will RAF gifted levels be from recruit to veteran only (i.e. do I have to get my friend who hates leveling to recruit me so I can give him levels)?

DalaranWoWcommunity 

Hello archmagemagus:

Referan Account was disabled few days after that, it was a mistake while we were doing some initial tests. We’ll have available “Recruit a Friend” feature. About the level gifting, it works exactly as you mentioned.

Thanks for your interest.

[There are more comments but we didnt answered or are not a question]

Not if you are immortal likea GM is =)

DalaranWoWcommunity 

Hello Niny Srnec:

As MrGodzlord says: they were with Game Master’s powers, so that allow them to show and control encounters smoothly. You can also check they have killed some bosses just being 4 of them with no high-endgame gear.

Thanks.

Registration openon 20th?

Hello Naz Zebra:

Yes, registration will beopen on 20th July.

Thanks for your interest.

paismovicard 

You guys should totally fixthose inferno spawners…. make them invisible or something.

DalaranWoWcommunity 

Hello paismovicard:

Those“Infernal NPCs” are triggered because they are visible only in the debugg mode for Game Masters. Anyway, we hope you liked the video in the general term, and didn’t allow that some little NPC’s invisible to players make you think different.

Thanks.

paismovicard 

Alright, but that Saurfang encounter, was a little bug. Those Dwarves or something should fly a little higher in the air while they were being choked.

MrGodzlord 

Right, that affects the entire encounter so hard it’s impossible to execute the fight properly. All those little details will get fixed over-time for sure, there is no need to worry or comment here about them. They are probably very well awareof all the issues they have to deal with…

/sarcasm

paismovicard 

Ok.

C-sar 

isthe icc initially available for players?

croenigma19 

Ithink half of people of corrupted molten will come here 😀

datkitchen 

Highly unlikely. Molten harbors masses of stupid and uneducated individuals who believe that Molten is actually good, when they have no iota of credibility when they say that they’re the best.Censorship is Molten’s agenda on the forums, and anything and everything anti-Molten is almost always removed.

awol2shae 

Most importantly, isthere any pathing ?

Gordin508 

I also played on Molten for 1,5yrs because it was #1 on most voting sites. Their scripts were so bad, ICC in RS were yet the only raids really doable on Molten but still bugged and corrupted as hell. I really hopy people give Dalaran WoW a real chance. If the raid quality is at least 1/4 as good as i hope i’ll donate the hell out of you, evenif i don’t get anything as donation reward. Go Team Dalaran!

Vollzer 

my god thisis gona be so epic

Hey. i am trying to join the server. However when i put in the realmlist. I just receive “Unable toconnect to server” or stuck on “authenticating”. Any feedback?

how is this proper pathfinding if half of themobs body goes through the tower?

daraban alexandru 

It’s becauseof those mobs size bro.

Hello Niny,

As Daraban Alexandru says, in this case is because of mobs size. Anyways, weare still developing this system and it shall be improved with time.

Thanks.

Questions and Answers: Dalaran-WoW Blog

Hello Community, we will make some posts with all the questions and comments we answered in order of arrival in our social networks, this way you can read it chronologically and see our ideas and how we were answering with all the information we could every moment, explaining more detailed each doubt.

This post will be about our public questions and answers related to our first post in this blog:

DALARAN-WOW PRIVATE SERVER PRESENTATION.

PUBLIC QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS;

Anya June 27, 2013  22:33

AAAAND EXPECTATIONS DOWN AFTER NO RP TALK :_(

Answer: Hello Anya, if you mean RolePlay, of course there will be players and guilds playing it, despite we won’t have an exclusive server for it.

Squick June 29, 2013 01:12

I’m glad to see you guys working on this project. But there’s one little thing that’s bugging me out. You said “First pure blizzlike server”, does that mean that donations will be limited aswell? Or you just gonna open full donations, so ppl can donate whatever they want. Cuz donation is not blizzlike at all.

Ty and looking forward on playing here with bunch of friends from other server.

Answer: Hello Squick, our donation system is going to be very strict and limited. Gameplay experience won’t be broken at any point despite the donation shop we’ll have.

Of course, we’ll have more items available than Blizzard’s Store, but they will be carefully selected having in mind to balance the realm properly. We’ll keep the true Blizzard essence, there is no need to worry about that.

Thank you for your interest.

Squick June 29, 2013 19:44

 Good , good. Any approximate time for the release that we can expect? Within next month, two??

Answer: Hello again Squick, we have made it public today. Dalaran-WoW will be released on July 20th. You can stay tuned here: https://www.facebook.com/dalaranwow

Thank you.

(Chain of questions)

DrDonkey July 2, 2013  13:14

Hi there, I have a question about the release of PvE content on Dalaran wow that I didn’t understand from the presentation. When the first and second server opens, which raids will be avaliable? Will it be just Naxx, OS, and Maly for the first few months? Or will everything be released at once, and to enter the next raid tier you need the achievement for the tier before it? I for one really hope that the raids will be released as they were when WotLK launched, so that we can really enjoy each raid tier until the next one is released.

Looking forward to the release!

 Levi July 2, 2013 16:04

They are releasing the first realm with all content and the second with progressive, but I wish it was the other way around!

I’ll still play here though.

DrDonkey July 2, 2013 16:47

I wish that aswell. I’ll wait until the second server is released if that is the case. I just hope there are more people like us who have the patience to wait.

It would be a shame if the progressive server suffered from low populations because it got released later and got less attention.

Guess we’ll have to wait for an official reply! :)

Levi July 2, 2013 19:18

Indeed!

Noname July 2, 2013 17:07

Ye, im waiting for progressive with my friends aswell. It’s a shame it’s 2nd.

 Azerothian July 2, 2013 19:52

I think is not a shame, they are working hard and we can’t start blaming them before see any result. I’m sure it will be epic.
By the way I will level up my alter character on the first realm meanwhile I wait for the progressive realm, and once its opened I will run with my main for the Realm First (that way I can enjoy the gameplay with my alter) I don’t want to wait more than the official release, so I think is a good option.
Anyway a lot guildies will do the same and we will transfer to the 2nd realm in the same moment they allow it.
Cya in Dalaran-WoW, I hope also in Kirin Tor realm 

 Levi July 2, 2013 20:04

Yeah I’ll be there until the 2nd! What faction you guys interested in?

DrDonkey July 2, 2013 20:27

I said it would be a shame “if” it would happen. I’m not trying to blame anyone. I just wanted to clear up some confusion on my part. I’m sure the release will be awesome!

Your plan is excellent, and I shall do the same!
I’ll level my alt on the first server as well and start my main on the progressive server once it opens.

Oh, and I’ll be rolling horde.

 Levi July 2, 2013  21:08

Apparently we can transfer our chars to the progressive realm

Azerothian July 2, 2013 21:20

DrDonkey, ok then i misunderstood. Yeah! we will see on the bg’s then, I will play Alliance.

Noname July 2, 2013 21:30

Azerothian, BG’s are for beginners. See ya in arenas everyone. 

 Azerothian July 2, 2013 21:40

noname, I know, but you can’t do arenas if you aren’t 80 lvl. So in the travel we will kill each other on bg’s 

 Answer:

Hello all,

First of all, do not worry about second server population, there are a lot of people waiting for it that will be playing on Kirin Tor until the release.

As Azerothian mentioned, there will be transfers from the first realm to the second one, transfers which at any given point will breake or unbalance the gameplay experience.

Feel free for ask whatever you want to know.

Levi July 2, 2013 20:22

Oh cool!

And if we had items that were in a later patch they will be removed? (because of the progressive content) and substituted?

Anyway that’s great, I’m glad I can start on the 20th :) .

 nonameJuly 2, 2013 20:25

Wait, what do you mean transfers?
When 2nd realms open, don’t tell me ppl from 1st realm can transfers immediately?

Or just later? Sorry for double post. 
It might be that I missunderstood something here.

Anywhoooooo, cant wait to step my foot to azeroth with new realm. :D 

Answer:People will be able to transfer from first realm to second one after all the class/race realm first achievements are taken on the second. So, it will not be inmediatly.

Do not worry about achievements, gear…etc. We have thought carefully on all this.

 Levi July 2, 2013 21:43

Awesome!

Quas July 2, 2013 22:58

We are proud to announce that Dalaran-WoW Official Release will be held on 20th July.”
If I may ask, when is the scheduled date for the 2nd realm (the progressive one) to be released?

Answer:

 Hello Quas, there is still no date for the second realm’s release but we can say that it will not take much time.

 QuasJuly 3, 2013 02:11

Thank you for the quick answer, looking forward to play on one of your realms.

Best regards.

Achilleslol July 3, 2013  16:46

Well pure blizzlike wotlk means that after we hit lvl 80 we gonna do classic WOTLK dungeons (utgarde , gundrak ,dtk, HoS , CoS , AN etc. ) and after naxxramas , then ulduar and stuff ?  just asking , if this is correct , that’s the reason i will join you cuz i miss those times…

Answer:

@Achilleslol:

Yes of course, that is the idea. We want to keep the original Blizzard’s essence, and that is one of the ways you can choose to experiment it.

(another chain of questions):

DarioJuly 3, 2013 09:29

hello there, i have some question about this server.
1 why dont u release the progressive realm first?
2. which version of the game i need to have?
3.when are u going to post a complete info about whats gonna work ( i mean which raids, which instances etc, what bugs are goona be, what talents are not going to work etc) at the release of the server?
4. why dont u open the forums some days before the release, i mean this cause im not a english speaker and nor are my friends, we are from latin america, so we could use the forums to try to find all of the ppl that are from region and say which faction are we gonna play, creat a guild, etc this could be very helpful for a lot of other ppl too….cheers…hope u answer

DrDonkey July 4, 2013 00:48

I agree about the forum. It would be great to have a place to talk before the release.

NonameJuly 4, 2013 02:04

I they they should put on their site torrent link for wotlk wow with appropiate patch for download.  

Niblet July 4, 2013 14:39

They already have a personal torrent with the correct Wotlk client, they are just waiting to get more seeds before giving out links to it for people to download it.

 Answer:

Hello Dario,

1- We can clearly tell you that from the very beginning of our announcement, a lot people are interested in the second realm, but as we mentioned before we have to think for majority and general groups.

So, we thought of giving the opportunity by default to all the WOTLK lovers to actually start without restrictions and enjoy the currently opened content we have available, not just PvE/PvP progression.

The second realm will be specifically designed for those kind of users which are in love with pure hardcore progression like it was present back in the days when Blizzard was releasing content gradually.

Basically, we choose the generic option for start.

2 – Yes, you do need to have 3.3.5a World of Warcraft Client in order to play on our servers. We shall provide a full Torrent file already prepared for download and we’ll make it public really soon, no worries.

3 – We’ll try to keep the community updated with a full report before the release, though we are not sure if we’ll be able to, mainly because of a lot of initial testing in the world, since the last LoS and Pathfinding implementation.

Anyway, we can assure you that we’ve already worked a lot to have perfectly executed encounters for most of our raids/dungeons whether it’s Vanilla, TBC or Wrath expansion.

4- We’d like to publish our forums before the release, but we simply cannot, because our website has a system which is linked to the in-game characters. You will be able to access it on the same day when we release our official web-site, servers and everything else.

On the side note, we already know that a lot of people whom speak spanish might join us the first days, as we wrote the article already here [1]. If you wish you might comment there in the meanwhile or even talk with them there.

Thank you very much for your interest.

thanks for ur answer…hope to see you ingame soon

excuse me…i would apreciate if you can tell me in case you know, about which factions ppl from latin america are choosing or any info about that…thanks in advance

Aressius July 5, 2013 09:17

“…3 – We’ll try to keep the community updated with a full report before the release, though we are not sure if we’ll be able to, mainly because of a lot of initial testing in the world, since the last LoS and Pathfinding implementation.”

Does this means NPCs, Pets and Mobs won’t go trough the air, but rather try to find appropriate ground path? I know AI pathfinding was never implemented before – you’d be the first server to do it.

Answer:

@Aressius Yes, we mean exactly that.

Glusk July 4, 2013 10:29

What do you plan to do once the expansion “runs out” or in other words where do you see the future of this server a year after the 1st Light of Dawn group? Stagnation in terms of pve content is one of the reasons why Blizzard won’t set up their own WotLK servers(lets not talk about what a logistics nightmare it would be for them  ). As much as I like this expansion I tend to agree with them.

About the progressive realm… Will all the players have to complete a certain raid instance before attempting a new one(like a certain lock), or will you add patches for each realm first so that the new content is made available to everyone ?

Answer:

As we mentioned multiples times, we want to make the best and the most perfect private server focused only on WOTLK expansion (and the previous one), we want to host the WOTLK home for those players that love this content like we do.

Where Azeroth is not devastated, where the most powerful enemy is playing with the soul of the prince of Lordaeron and where Horde and Alliance have battles together against him. After exhausting battles to be able to rest in a populated Dalaran, enjoying all the possible content with your friends, discover all the quests, all the role-plays in the world…etc.

Every player can make their own challenge with the content we have, because we will work on allowing them to play with the most quality features that this expansion has to offer. Wrath of the Lich King is more than hardcore PvE raiding, it has many more things to discover or re-experiment.
Also, we shall provide in the future many ways to experience it and make it more challenging.

We thought on the idea of adding patches, but we want an eternal progressive realm, that will be totally equal for players that join the realm at the early beginning or 6 months later, so the experience will be the same. So we will lock the raids/dungeons in the same chronological order that Blizzard published to make the progressive experience real, even when all the content is already published on the realm. We will take care also of the vendors, emblems and so.

Also of course PvP content will be also progressive.

Froaster July 9, 2013 07:08

 hi can u make it more hardcore like a player cant get exp for 70+ till he kills illidan (at list till realms first achi is earned by sombdy) in my openian it will be more fun for geting realms first as many players wil be trying for it

Answer:

Hi froaster:

We appreciate your interest but the option you are suggesting is a bit custom. So even we are glad to read suggestions, yours will be not considered as an option, sorry, and thanks for your opinion anyway

or tambo July 10, 2013 00:24

Your house is valueble for me. Thanks!…

Blaer July 10, 2013 00:26

Will the players be forced to level on 1x experience on all servers? I understand you want to keep the original WotLK experience as pure as possible, but most of your players will likely be returning veterans who have already leveled through vanilla 1-70 content many, many times and that really isn’t so enjoyable after the fifth time. If the rates are 1x, being able to start at level 68 or 70 would increase my chances of me finding myself playing on your server.

Answer:

Hello Blaer:

Yes, the players will have to level up on x1 rate in all our realms, another rates would not be blizzlike, and we want to mantain as much as we can the essence of the original content. We will offer some character transfers between our realms when we have more, from another private servers and from retail as long as the rate is also x1 and have vast lifetime; but only once our community achieves the Realm First achievement in all classes and races.

Thanks.

Glusk July 13, 2013  14:34

Please don’t ever allow transfers from anywhere but retail! Pretty please 

nonameJuly 13, 2013 23:38

@Glusk
How can you transfer from retail, when retail is MOP, explain me, 

eNkorr July 10, 2013 14:20

Is there gonna be open GM / Moderator applications?

Noname July 10, 2013 23:51

I don’t know if I missed it somewhere, what will the server time be?

Pova July 11, 2013  15:14

There will be any transfer change from other server cuz who have caracter with 140 days playtime/and much achievements wont leave from other servers…

Answer:

Hello Pova:

Yes we will offer this option but not in any near future. Of course we will not allow achievement transfers too, since it would not be fair to our community, the same goes for gear or items in the characters inventory.

If the achievements that you don’t want to lose are already earned by our community is another case that we are discussing these days, so we cannot answer now on that aspect.

Thanks.

WONDERFUL Post.thanks for share… waiting for more.

Yewlord July 12, 2013  22:46

for those of us that dont play pve will there be option to donate trinkets from icc and toc such as bauble and solace ?

Answer:Hello yewlord:

No, our Donation Shop will be very restricted in gear terms. Even if the players are not into PvE, the only option to get these trinkets will be farm to it in their respective raids. Like on Retail, it will be hard to find PvP players with high-end PvE gear, this way only those who really work on earning it will have the best composition of the gear to play the kind of game they want.

Thanks.

[since this point we stoped to answer some questions because or they were already answered or was in a really close date to the release and we had a lot of work to do]

the patch in the second realm (progressive) will be the 3.3.5a with only naxxramas open or it will be 3.0.2?

Second realm will be 3.3.5a with only Naxx open at start, then gradually the rest will be released, but to enter the later tier of raids you will need the previous raids achievement completed.

Aluciel July 16, 2013 23:42

Hello! This sounds like a great project, specially if you have been able to implement a form of pathfinding that doesn’t involve pets/mobs slamming their way through terrain constantly. This has been a real immersion-breaker elsewhere. The whole thing sounds extremely well-built, and I do very much hope that it delivers (please don’t take that as doubt, but instead as anticipation).

I see that the preview video shows a working Wintergrasp. Have you had an opportunity to try it under any form of high load? I remember that WG could bring the live servers to the knees, so I will confess a small amount of concern there as WG was an integral requirement for many pieces of PVP gear.

LonerinJuly 18, 2013 19:48

Heya there, just a simple question:
if iit’s true that progressive realm will still be 3.3.5a with the only difference that there will be only Naxxramas, Obsidian Sanctum and Eye of the Eternity as open raids, classes will still be ruled with 3.3.5a theorycrafting?
Also, it would be very usefull to get an idea of when you planning more or less to open the second realm in order to let us decide if to play on first realm meanwhile or just wait for the second one.
Thank you, and wish u good luck and all the best for this amazing project, can’t wait to test it out.

Orcman July 18, 2013  20:03

Hi,your project looks pretty solid, but i was wondering where your servers will be located ?

Niblet July 19, 2013 00:33

They said that the 1st server would be located in France.

Rithrin July 19, 2013 13:23

 Hey, will there be any kind of bonuses on the first days after the release for new players?

Oh, and will there be any GM control on the server? other WoTLK servers (like molten-wow) have absolutely terribe GMs and a very unfair ban/report system. They’re just massively spoiled…

Also, as a hardcore pvp player (multiglad here!) is it possible to report broken spell mechanics etc and actually get a response about those? thanks!

Mircoss July 20, 2013  11:44

When will be server opened?

Niblet July 20, 2013 15:22

On the 20th of July at 16:30 Gmt+1

Dalaran-WoW Private Server Presentation.

Official Website: www.dalaran-wow.com

What is Dalaran for us and why we choose this name?

Dalaran was the heart and soul of World of Warcraft, Wrath of the Lich King expansion. It was the meeting point after intense battles and places desired by all those who would set their hearthstone there. It was a city of all kind of possibilities, there were all the professions and trading market, a departure to new destinations, a place to share experiences with others, a place where the atmosphere was charming and comfortable… a place to be and where countless epic chronicles were written.

Ultimately, it was the home of Azeroth, a safe house, stable and friendly where habitants created unforgettable stories. Dalaran’s shining soul remained until the arrival of Cataclysm, after catastrophe everything changed and this wonderful city was completely empty. It’s one of the reasons why our server is called Dalaran, because Cataclysm will never arrive and Dalaran will not fall. It will always stay populated, meaning the heart of WOTLK will stay alive.

That’s the idea we want to transmit using the name of this Magic Kingdom, representing a stable place where you feel at home and where you can experience the essence of this expansion as you deserve. We would like to show people, when they will be playing, the same feeling that flowed through us when we were playing so they could feel the power of Dalaran once again.

The streets of Dalaran are waiting for you, eager to see you all together laughing until the late hours of the dawn awaiting for the inscriptors to begin to write your glorious stories full of adventures.

The streets of Dalaran are waiting for you, eager to see you all together laughing until the late hours of the dawn awaiting for the inscriptors to begin to write your glorious stories full of adventures.

We are waiting for your history!

Why the slogan “Make your home here”?

We used the comparison with the taverns of WoW, because we want you to establish your WoW-home here with us, that you set up in Dalaran-WoW, where you are going to be able to enjoy every detail of this game, a place where the community forges the warm essence of the home, returning the life and magic to Dalaran that has always been known. We want you to feel as you are at home, where you can perform heroic feats with your characters as you complete your story without fear of falling into oblivion, thanks to the security and stability that we offer.

In our house, the doors are always wide open for everyone.

Come to Dalaran WoW and make your home here.

Make your home in this inn.

Who are we?

Our project consists of components based on players which have many years of experience from their past adventures in Azeroth and Outlands, in all the areas of the game from PvP, to High End Game raiding (even some of them have over 9000 achievement points in WOTLK) . We’ve also been guild leaders for a long time. We began in retail and we were there until Cataclysm came, after that we tried different private servers. None has the characteristics we were looking for, so we decided to create the true Blizzlike server, and share it with the people so they can also enjoy it.

We are a multidisciplinary, international and qualified team. We have merged our skills, knowledge and experience together with our passion for The Wrath of The Lich King expansion. We are Software Engineers, Developers, Sociologists, Pedagogues and Designers, so we are a team full of different sciences with great perspective. From students to professional developers with years of experience in different companies. Each and every one of us loves this expansion.

We are dedicated and committed, if we do something, we do it right. In our team, we are all experts in something, both in the game and in the area we are developing the project. On top of that we have knowledge how to adapt balance between quality of service and quality of gameplay.

Why choose us and not one server with more “life-time” and more population?

We have created a perfect world for people around the world who really miss to play WOTLK, in which we are endeavouring to ensure that everything runs smoothly and our users can access all available content of this expansion of the way that was experienced on Retail in the past. We want to make this project successful that will consist of one of the largest community based solely on WOTLK, being the first, truly faithful server to the restrictions and regulations established by Blizzard, a true Blizzlike server that keeps the original essence and quality.

We are fully aware that there are a lot of private servers now, but we have focused and specialized on WOTLK, and we have not included any custom content and we never will. All our realms are and will always stay WOTLK.

Our main goal is to improve the content and have the bug free World of Warcraft server that has been never seen so far, we shall even try to fix the bugs that were kept for a long time originally from Blizzard. Check it out yourself and see that they are not only mere words.

We offer several ways to experience all the content. On our first Realm available after the release, the content is released in the normal way. However, the next Realm, will be exclusively progressive, in which we will publish the updates gradually, in the same order that Blizzard did in his time. So our community will have the opportunity to experience the way they prefer.

We want to provide an appropriate environment where our community will continue to grow comfortable and stable, because we consider it as one of the most important parts of WoW. We shall unify the different ways in which everyone can participate and keep abreast of what is happening in our world, providing constant activity to the community both in game and on the forums. Our website is synchronized with the game and with social networks, so you can enjoy these tools both individually and together with other people.

The loyalty and perseverance will be rewarded as Blizzard did with small prizes or gifts on certain dates. Of course, consider it essential to recognize people’s contributions to the community, work hard in game, etc … Those who demonstrate their commitment, both in Azeroth and forums will be taken into account by our staff. For example we shall provide The Hall of Fame to those who perform well, those who support guides or videos of our server strategies, or any kind of epic videos, etc…

Regarding the guild, we think that we as managers must appreciate the effort and hours spent into any area (not only in High End Game Raiding or Hardcore PvP), so when a guild or a player does something remarkable, we take care of that to share it with our entire Community.

For example, everyone will know when someone will achieve Realm First:”Death’s Demise” or Realm First:”Celestial Defender” and simillar achievements and they will be known as true hardcore players which will be remembered on The Server Hall of Fame.

We watch, we listen to people, since we have been players for many years and know well the role of a player, we understand your needs and problems. As we said our main goal is to create a “house” so you can feel more comfortable than you ever felt in WoW. We are here for you in pain and glory. We will give you the opportunity and we shall reward those who deserve it and we shall punish those who cheat or do not respect our rules. All “well-documented” reports will be taken into account.

Something that stands out, is how well us staff members know each other from staff members and how close we have been for years, we are extremely hardworking and perfectionists. You will see that yourself how we constantly update and improve our web-site and in-game experience.

Our brains are generators of ideas, and with them we will be creating and inovating new features, always consider the opinion of our community. You are the one who is going to spend so much time playing with Dalaran-WoW community, you are the one that will direct us so we can adjust everything that you might like and it will fill your needs.

We’re waiting for these, so called, legendary heroes who will get Realm first achievements. During the development of this project, we have received much support from the people, and we are surprised by the number of people who are very interested and decided to join us after the official release. With that, the fact that you can get Realm first achievements on the server that will preserve and there is a large community, is very valuable and that is a worthwhile thing to do.

Why do we exactly do this now even being aware that there are many servers?

As already mentioned, we are a professional team, each of us has worked or studied something related to its role in the project and we have many years played through WoW in Hardcore PvP / PvE aspect, aswell as leading the top guilds. Which brings us to: “Why do we do this?”. We have tried and mastered everything and we want to make reality of this utopia we’ve always invisioned, which in our eyes is a server with a community which can grow and be respeted by many others meanwhile we develop the best and the first pure Blizzlike Server: promotions, encounters quality, original rates…etc, a perfect World Of Warcraft place to be for a long time.

As players, we felt the lack of justice and attention from managers and GMs on the other servers, we had all kind of problems ingame and we have been completely ignored. So, after a series of disappointments, we started slowly creating the idea of ​​this project, a server where the staff cares and listens to the people, in which every single person feel at home no matter what, and can enjoy the quality of the content. We wanted to create the support system as we would have liked to have: Objective, fair, comprehensive, that understands the game, who cares about us and our well being / ingame experience, and create an environment in which everyone can play by the rules and guidelines of conduct established by us. In short, professional support, organized and easy to access, that listens to users. Basically our goal continues to create a strong Warcraft community.

When we finished defining the basic idea, several close people more, felt interest and joined the team. People multidisciplinary with studies in sociology and pedagogy, which develops a very important part of the project.

Merging all this plus a insane portion of illusion, Dalaran-WoW rises.

For what kind of players is Dalaran-WoW?

It is an International server and this is what you can be focused on:

As happened in Retail, you can focus on what interests you most, whether you’re a person who loves quests and want to get the Loremaster, as if you are a pvp lover born and want to focus on the season of arena or do any kind of pvp (indoor, outdoor …). We consider it very important to complete the story of the characters, so those who are some achievement hunters will find here a perfect place to stay and accumulate the most achievements points possible or if you want, just explore the world. Of course, the PvE is one of the great qualities of WoW you’ll enjoy it being as Casual or Hardcore Raider. If you are someone who loves the thrill of patches strict progressively you have the option of these kinds of challenges on our progressive realm.

Dalaran-WoW have room for any kind of guilds, both Hardcore PvE or PvP, as Roleplay, leveling guilds, twink guilds or social guilds where your character is without any special purpose. No matter what guild you belong to, you’re at home and you can enjoy your community, both ingame and on the website/forums.

What kind of Realms do we have?

Our expectations are to have 3 realms, but we do not exclude out the possibility of including more in the future, whatever is needed so our users are able to enjoy the best experience when we have a high population. As mentioned previously, we found that there is already a large number of people who are interested in joining us, so it is possible that we will have to open some extra realm for balance population.

The main difference between PvP and PvE realm is that entering any contested or enemy territory automatically flags you for PvP combat and you cannot unflag yourself while in these zones, so a PvP Realm fits perfect with both kind of people, PvP and PvE. (More info here)

All our servers, will be strictly x1 rate. Nothing will be modified from the original version of Blizzard’s WOTLK expansion.

First Realm: With the release, we will open one server:

  • The PvE content will be published as normal with some exceptions, at the expense of the first brave who clean of all the normal mode raids to release some heroic modes then. The core of this server is PvP .

Second Realm: will be released a little bit later:

  • This will be the Progressive Realm we have mentioned previously, we will publish the updates and instances gradually in exactly the same chronological order in which Blizzard did in his days for WOTLK, so that people become available for new challenges, and check who are the true heroes that will become legends. So, our community will have the opportunity to choose the way to experience the content. A small point for those interested: The content will remain progressive, the instances / raids maintain restrictions for entry, in the chronological order in which they were published. So, let’s say you hit level 80 and want to access the Icecrown Citadel, you must have made all the WOTLK dungeons/ raids earlier. For example, if you want to enter The Eye of Eternity to defeat Malygos you will have to have theachievement “Fall of the Naxxramas” completed or if you want to raid Trial of the Crusader, the forces of evil in Ulduar (Yogg-Saron) will have to be defeated first in order to step into the new instance.

Third Realm:

  • We consider a fundamental opening of PTR (Public Test Realm), with the aim so you may test the new challenges before deploying the servers. This way, we can keep a good performance after every update on the official servers.

Futures Realms: For now, we would only open new realms in case necessary for excess current population. It would be open for discussion and suggestions by the community as long as they follow the restrictions that come with being a Pure Blizzlike server.
