re: Test phase Wrath-era free server

0

Been tinkering with rates quite a bit this week, trying to dial in settings that are "fun" but not "faceroll"... 2x honor and rep was too little, 5x seems to be too much; going to try rep at 3.33 and leave honor rates high for a few days.

Transmogrifiers have been added ingame; Alliance is spawned outside the Auction House in front of the weapon master's building, Horde is in Orgrimmar in the Drag (close to the AH and Flight master) and a "neutral" TM is spawned in the very center ring of Dalaran (NW of the memorial monument/fountain, along the wall).

One reforger has been added, but is deliberately disabled since it is not certain if this is even really needed until legendary gear sets are introduced (level 285-300+)

you had me at 'Please'.  Since retail is dying and doomhammer is just in itsfinal days this is interesting.  As you know I never got into wowrage, so might need some hand holding on either installing the correct version needed

Internal/nearby pressures to recreate WoWRage in some form or other are mounting... my counter-proposal is a PvP realm with the PvP ranks system and server wide PK announcements and hot streaks and so forth, who knows... the PvE thing is a bit boring, especially since we have done away with teleporter NPCs and free starting gear....  I enjoy the challenge, but when tuned for solo play, the world really is missing something... like, um, DANGER....

However, in the works this coming week, we are introducing a few features found only in Cata and MoP- 3.3.5a playable Wrath-era [popular game name] with "re-reforging"(r) and "transmogrifablahblahblah" (tm) I wanted to toss void storage in there too, but it appears to be too much at this time, besides I am stuck working with 32 bit compiles and Win7 until I buy/build my next server system (sometime later this year).

So, we're stuck at PvE for the moment, and if I can actually get playerbots working properly, I will surely reconsider offering PvP again, maybe even two realms... something TRiGGS and I only ever dreamed of.

 

Cheers

Hello

 

Please count this as confidential info for now; we're months away from any kind of public launch, but we are offering a free to play emulation server for Wrath-era [popular game name]. The Client version required to play is 3.3.5a (Build 12340), which was the last one before Meow-aclysm, and the most popular and easy to find one. Because of the EULA and nature of private gaming servers I do not host and cannot provide links to any copies of such a client nor do I know offhand where to find any. but [SEARCH ENGINES] are your friend, and you're bound to turn up a .rar, .zip, or torrent file somewheres on this great big internet. Ditto, a "TrinityCore connection guide" on how to easily edit your realmlist text file.

So as to avoid any confusion, this is not a retail replacement and folks should realize that even though we will have this going for many years to come, Blizz could come down hard on those who play both retail and emu servers.... also bear in mind, they never have and likely never will, since they just want your money.

Also, not everything works, naturally, but almost everything does; even Wintergrasp vehicles. I'd say classes are 99% complete, and instances work 96%... raids also around 95% or better, ditto battlegrounds and arenas.

Rates range from 2x to 10x for exp and drops, money and average rates are 5x, with Honor and Rep both at 10x to avoid "rep grinds" and other timesinks. Regular mobs have been weakened by about half, and elite NPCs are toned down to about 1/3 of what they normally dish out, Bosses are at about 1/10th their regular strength for now until we have better tuning. This is going to be a soloable server, though you may want a friend, a boxed toon or a working player_bot for raids.

I can't promise alot of custom stuff and really don't want any; I may be giving players teleport commands instead of having teleporter NPCs, and using .home and .unstuck commands instead of the usual Hearthstones. 

No one starts with money or extra bags or anything; it's pretty much straight up [popular game name] but faster.

OH- and there's also 2x talent points, and players can take any/all tradeskills on any/every character that they wish.
