  1. Hello everyone! If you read our announcement about Sethraliss’ 3rd content update, you’re aware that for a little while now, we started working on the development of 8.1 content on a 8.2 client. At first, only a few devs were assigned to it, but now almost all of them are working on it, which also explains why our 8.0 development is lighter now (less tickets in the live changelog is one of the symptoms). In that last announcement done in July, we mentioned that we were aiming for a release mid October: we’re halfway there, so we figured it would be a good time to share with you our progress and aims for the release! The ETA of the release is now the end of October (just a slight delay in 2 months worth of development). In the meantime, we’re still taking care of Sethraliss and making sure our 8.0 version is stable, don’t worry! A few developers are still monitoring it and making sure the important issues are addressed (major spell bugs, main questline / Uldir issues, etc). As we said before, the client itself will be an 8.2 client (the latest we can), but the content we are scripting is the one directly following what you currently have on Sethraliss: 8.1 questlines, zone & raid. We do not wish to skip anything from the content part, but having an 8.2 client will allow us to keep on scripting up to 8.2 without having to update the client again, which is a huge gain of time for us. So do not worry, you won’t miss on anything BFA has to offer! For those that remember our Legion’s development, we did a similar thing when updating our client from 7.1.5 to 7.3.5, without skipping any of the 7.2 content. One thing worth mentioning though is the class balance that will be taken from 8.2 right away when the 8.2 FS client is released. We’re aware that this means you won’t be doing the content with its related balancing, but there are several reasons that made us stick to this choice (again, the same way it was done on Legion): It drastically reduces dev time: between each game version, a lot of balance changes are done, including removal & addition of new traits or spells: Altering one spell for 8.1, and then again when we’d get into 8.2 content would take twice the amount of time. In essence, later versions are often “better” balanced than earlier ones: some bugs or unintended features are fixed, and the strongest classes are usually slightly nerfed while the weakest are buffed, which leads to a healthier state of the game. That point is up for debate, we’re aware, but it still explains why we also believed this was a good approach. For a few weeks now, our Quality Assurance team is focussing on making reports of class changes, and our developers are fixing them. On the side, some QA members are testing the next raid, Battle of Dazar’Alor (most bosses have their main script done, and require feedback for adjustment). As a reminder, you can apply to join our Quality Assurance team and help us bring out the best release possible here! Here is our developer assignment at the moment: 1 dev on Sethraliss monitoring & major bug fixing 3 devs on BoD (one per wing, so 3 bosses each) 2 devs on class fixing 2 devs on the continuation of the war campaign (one for each side) 1 dev on Darkshore 1 dev on PVP invasions Also, as you may have seen for the past months (and still ongoing) we have a few developers that work on low-level zones or older expansion questlines: Gilneas & Kezan have been rescripted, Elwynn Forest is on the way and we also have a developer working on WoD’s main questline: the idea is to then rescript fully a “leveling route” that will allow you to level up from 1 to 110 as easily as you can level up from 110 to 120 on BFA’s questlines. This means, broadly, scripting 1 zone of each level range available where every race can go without too much effort. Now for the more detailed list of what’s planned on our 8.2 client release! Currently on Sethraliss, every 8.0 content short of the Island Expeditions are available. We know we announced them a while ago, but their development got delayed: rest assured, one of our developers is working on them at the moment, and 3 islands should be available at the release! As usual, when doing a client update / new expansion release, a Public Test Realm will be set up so players can test the new contents. 8.2.0 release content at launch: 8.2 Class balance 8.1 War campaign continuation New allied races / Kultiran / Zandalari 1st wing of Battle of Dazar'alor New endgame zone Darkshore Siege of Boralus and Kings' Rest available on Heroic difficulty. PVP Invasions Azerite gear Vendor New Azerite traits Then, from there on we will script content as it was released on retail: 2nd and 3rd wing of BoD, then the full Mythic mode, then the 3rd Raid Crucible of Storms alongside its quests, and finally 8.2 zones. As you noticed, we plan on releasing BoD wing by wing (like we used to on Legion) and not fully at once as we did with Uldir. We initially thought that releasing the raid all at once would help deliver a better experience for players, and this point still stands; but what we underestimated was the impact in terms of workflow: It’s harder to test all the bosses at once for the QA, and harder for the developers as well, who have to make some bug fixes as long as 3 months after the boss was released. On top of that, we saw on Uldir that only a few guilds actually profited from the full release, as most were progressing (in HM at least) at a pace close to 1 wing / month, which is what we plan on doing on BoD. Easier to test & to fix means higher quality, to the “price” of quantity. We thought we could manage it on Uldir, but it wasn’t really conclusive so we’re switching back to the old, more manageable way! FIRESTORM Q&A It’s been a while since we gave you guys the chance to ask us about Firestorm, and the 8.2 client update sounds like a great opportunity! On Tuesday, October 1st 6 PM Server Time, we will be hosting a Questions & Answers on the public discord! Its system will be the same as the previous times: We’ll unlock a channel for you to post questions, then lock it and take time to answer them: there will be about 5 or 6 rounds. Please read carefully everything in this devblog to not waste questions on stuff that we already explained! EDIT: Transcript of the Q&A available here! Thank you for your time! We hope this will shed some light on the 8.2 client update! The Firestorm Staff
  2. Greetings! We hope you are having a nice summer! We made some changes to the shop, with some tweaking and additions. While this mostly concerns BFA, every expansion's shop got at least a little something! Let's start off with the BFA exclusive changes: All items in the shop that were still sold as 340 ilvl got updated to 395 ilvl. Some loots from World Bosses & PVP gear that were missing from the shop got added! Lootboxes prices have gone down by 10 Points per lootbox (Mythic dungeon ones at 20, Uldir ones at 30 / piece). New BFA Mounts have been added! They'll be present under the shop category "BFA Mounts". A new category has been added on the BFA shop as well: Upgrader items. Inside, you will find several different 'Upgraders': Tertiary Stat Upgrader (Leech, Speed or Avoidance): Allows you to add a tertiary stat of your choice on an item. Prismatic Socket Upgrader: Adds a prismatic socket on an item. Azerite Booster: Puts your Heart of Azeroth to level 35, unlocking every traits threshold for 8.0.1 content. ilvl Boosters (available in 2 versions: +5 & +15): increases the ilvl of the item you use it on. Only the +15 can be used on Azerite Gear, and none of them can be used on the Heart of Azeroth. You are still limited by the realm ilvl cap. We also heard your complaints that nothing really worth it is available in loyalty points outside of character changes (rename, race / faction change) right now. So we decided to include in this update some new loyalty points purchase options, on 3 specific things: Mythic Dungeon lootboxes (ilvl 365+) Tertiary Stat Upgrader (all 3 different ones) ilvl Booster +5 We hope that with those additions, retrieving your loyalty points daily feels more rewarding. As for the changes regarding all expansions, we reviewed Mounts pricing and downscaled them (a mount that costed between 300 & 350 points before now costs 180 points for example). On top of that, now all mounts in the shop can be part of the weekly promotion (roughly 25% discount). You can check the Firestorm shop through this link. We hope you'll enjoy those changes, and wish you a nice summer end! The Firestorm Team

  7. We cannot make it from BFA to BFA for the same reason we cannot give level 120 with Boris: ndue to the questlines and unlocking content, which is necessary for the character's progression.
  8. Following our last post about what's awaiting you in our new expansion Battle for Azeroth, many seem to still have questions about some of the features and systems. Most of the questions are related to the copy of your characters from Sylvanas to Sethraliss, and we are here to answer all of them! Let's get started. First and foremost, your characters will be copied. All of them, for free! This means that all the content you have on Legion will still be there. We are not forcing you to switch to Battle for Azeroth. With that being said, the progress you do on Sylvanas after the Copy moment (Copy will be done on the 15th at midnight CET) won't be updated on Sethraliss! Now for common questions that we have seen on the forums: Gold Gold limitation is indeed 10k gold per character. We have some limitations applied to prevent exploits. Our goal is to avoid Sylvanas’s huge inflation to also switch to Sethraliss. Items, bag and bank content Characters will keep their items, bags and bank content that they had on Sylvanas. Account bound data All the account bound data such as mounts, pets, titles, transmogs and artifact skins you have gathered in Sylvanas will be also copied over to Sethraliss. Guild Banks Guild bank gold and their content will be wiped. Migrations Migrations won't be available at the start but we expect to implement them soon! At least from other Legion servers. We won't do it at the start from other BFA private servers for balancing reasons. Future transfers We will allow players to copy again in the future at their own will! Characters already copied won't be able to be copied again. Greymane? We are not going to copy the characters from Greymane since Greymane is a fun PvP realm with instant level ups and other fun type realm features! Sethraliss falls under the rule of a progressive realm type with x3 rates (same as Sylvanas). Therefore, it's only fair we do not copy Greymane's database over to it. Why only copy from Sylvanas? Our players have the freedom to copy from any realm to Sylvanas. It felt right to only copy Sylvanas since its a direct progressive line. Legion → Battle for Azeroth. We hope this post makes things clear to everyone. If you have further questions leave them on the thread and we will add them to the main post. Thank you all and good luck on your adventures on Sethraliss! The Firestorm Staff

  10. Account banned due to Chargeback - How to proceed now If you are looking at this, probably it's due that your account has been banned. The main reason is because you performed a Gamepoints.mx (now Gamepoints.xyz) donation (paying using PayPal), you redeemed the code with the points, you spent the points, and after that, you asked for a refund to PayPal or the donation wasn't processed successfully (lack of funds, cancellation, etc...). This is considered an abuse of the system, and while this means permanent ban, we have a solution for this. If you want to get your account unbanned so you can play again, you need to follow the next steps in order: Contact PayPal and/or your payment provider and check what happened with your donation: why it didn't go through, or why did it get refunded. Complete the donation correctly or, if the refund was done on purpose, repeat the donation so you get the same points or more that you donated previously. Make a shop ticket informing about this. If the new donation covers the debt of the previous one, we will adjust your points amount and we will unban your account. Have a nice day. The Firestorm Staff
  11. The Closed Beta realm opened on February 11th, 2019! We are going to list several download method and options for downloading the BFA client 8.0.1 depending on your internet speed or your preferencies: Recommended (Method Nº1) Full client 8.0.1 (big initial download but stable client and gameplay): If you want to download and install the BFA 8.0.1 client since the beginning without depending on streamed downloads or slow downloads, this is the option you are looking for. (Torrent): Download the complete World of Warcraft client 8.0.1 for Firestorm using the magnet link that you will find if you click here. You will need a Torrent client in order to be able to process the magnet link properly. You can use uTorrent or Bit Torrent (there are more available clients, though). When installing the Torrent client, beware of the classic "offers" that they pop out on the installer, and make sure you uncheck all of them, since they are unintended software. Once the download is done (52 Gb), you will need to unzip it on the folder you want the game to be located. Do not forget that the folder must have full permissions (read and write) and it must be located on a normal folder (without restringed accesses, like Program Files). If you are using Mac, you will have to unzip as well the file WoW Mac.zip inside your game directory and execute Warcraft.app. If you have any problem related to your client or with your Mac, check this post. If you are using Windows, just execute the file wow.exe. A window will pop out asking you to select the language of the client (this can be changed later), and then the game will open with the starting cinematic. After the game opens, you will have to login using your Firestorm credentials. (Method Nº2) Minimum client 8.0.1 (play instantly but unstable. I want to play NOW!): This method is only useful if you don't have the client 8.0.1 and you want to play as soon as possible, avoiding big downloads. We do not recommend this method if you want to have an optimal gameplay experience since this method will cause you to have higher latency and fps drops during gameplay and accessing new zones. Do not forget that the method one, even though it might take hours to download the game, it will make you able to enjoy the game more, with no errors. This method will make the game to be downloading game files while you are playing. The first loads will be slow and it will depend entirely on your internet speed. It might take between 2 and 20 minutes to open the first time properly. In order to play with the minimum client, we have 2 different options: Option 1 (Firestorm Launcher): You can get the minimum client by using our Firestorm Launcher and play while the game is downloading. Follow the next images in order to see how to use this method properly. Do not forget that you need to download and install the Firestorm Launcher. Option 2 (Mega): Download the client from Mega using this link (for MacOS, you must use this one instead). Once it's downloaded, unzip the file on the folder that you want your client to download, and execute the file wow.exe / Warcraft.app. After that, the client will start downloading the basic files and after a while, it will open the game. If you have any problem related to your client or with your Mac, check this post. The Firestorm Team
  12. Greetings, Firestorm community! As we previously announced, on February 7th the Quality Assurance Team did a Livestream on our Closed Beta for BFA showing all the working content and features we currently have implemented there. In case you missed the livestream, or if you just want to rewatch it, don't worry! We got you covered!

  13. We don't know yet, but if possible, we will implement it.
  14. Hello everyone, It's been a few months since Battle for Azeroth was released, and although our players asked us to launch the expansion as quickly as possible, we had decided to finish Legion’s primary content first. As time went by, and as we were reaching the end of it with Antorus release, developers have gradually shifted towards BFA, and have been working on several aspects: Stats formulas, Classes, Quests, PVE content and Expansion features among others. Our goal is simple: Making sure our new Battle for Azeroth realm has the most content at release, with the highest quality available. We are close to that goal today and we feel like it's time to give our community the opportunity to try themselves what we have been working on. In order to achieve that, we are launching a Closed Beta realm and we will give access to players who want to help us test the expansion and give us feedback. Players will have all their Legion players available on this realm, so they will be able to test all the BFA content, dungeons, classes, mechanics… everything! The closed beta begins on February 11th. Players willing to help us test the realm will be able to apply for access from the Account Management Page. We will be giving access to players that applied in waves. All selected players for the closed beta will receive a mail on their Firestorm email address informing them. The progress on the Closed Beta won’t count towards the progress on the Live realm. The point is to test the content and report the issues, not to make progress with your copied characters! For obtaining the BFA client, players will have a full guide on the forum and on the website giving them several options to download and install it on different languages. There will be several options for downloading the client on the "Join us" page on the website, as well as on the Firestorm launcher! It will be added this week. Meanwhile, you can download the client using one of the following links: Minimum client for Windows (64 bits only) . Put the wow.exe in the folder you want to download the game and open it. Minimum client for Mac. Uncompress the files on the folder you want to download the game and open the .app file. Full client for Windows (64 bits only) and Mac. You need a TORRENT client in order to be able to open this link properly. Once it's downloaded, uncompress on the folder you want to play and execute wow.exe. For Mac users, there's a zip file inside the downloaded client called WoW Mac.zip. Uncompress it inside the Game client and execute Warcraft.app in order to be able to play. Do not forget that BFA client will be needed for the PTR Closed Beta Realm and later on for the Live Realm, so you will need it in order to play! If you ever find any glitch or issue while playing on the Closed Beta PTR Realm, you will be able to report them on our bugtracker so we can fix it before the release of the BFA Live Realm, Sethraliss. General Classes We have been working on the scripting and balancing of the classes since early September and kept reviewing them because we know how important it is: so far, more than 500 fixes have been made on spells alone, including damage / healing values, interactions with other spells, and hotfixes. The QA team has been working with the developers in order to provide you with the best experience possible when you are playing your class. You can see their work on the Live Changelog. Stats Formulas We updated our templates so that each race, class, and spec has the most accurate values possible across the board: from your primary stat to your dodge and parry chances, your haste scalings, your block chances and damage reduction, or your auto attack damage, everything was reviewed and updated to be as reliable as possible. New Allied Races Dark Iron Dwarves and Mag'har Orcs are unlocked without any requirements! Once you get to level 120 with the race you will also unlock the transmog set and mount! Azerite Traits and Gear: The Heart of Azeroth unlocks the ability to unlock Azerite Traits on new kind of Armor, This new type of gear is fully implemented and almost all sources of obtention will be available at release. We will then implement all other sources (weekly mythic chest, the new weekly PvP chest, world bosses and the first raid, Uldir). All traits are scripted. Learn more about them here: https://www.wowhead.com/heart-of-azeroth-azerite-traits-guide Player versus Environment Zones: On BFA, there will be 2 main cities for each faction, and they will be fully available at the release: Zuldazar for the Horde. Tiragarde Sound for the Alliance There will be a secondary zone of each new continent, Nazmir and Drustvar. Inside each available zone, you will be able to complete all the quests and chapters of the main storylines, fight against rare creatures, find lost treasures and also the world quests once you unlock them. The zones of Stormsong Valley and Vol'dun are still under development and will be released later. We will make announcements when the zones are ready to be implemented. You will be able to report any issues regarding these zones on our bug tracker. Dungeons: Fully scripted Dungeons and available when the Closed Beta opens: Freehold Waycrest Manor Atal'Dazar The Underrot Shrine of the Storm Under development and testing expected to be available during beta tests: The Motherlode Temple of Sethraliss Under development and testing expected to be available at launch on Live: Kings’Rest (Mythic+) Will come after release: Siege of Boralus (Mythic+) Tol Dagor Player versus Player Battlegrounds, Arenas and Skirmishes All currently available battlegrounds on Legion will be accessible at the launch of the realm. Two new arenas: Hook Point, Mugambala, and the remastered version of Nagrand arena will also be implemented. The ranked brackets will be up once the PvP season starts. The War Mode In Battle For Azeroth, the distinction between PvP and PvE in the open world no longer exists. It is replaced by a new game mode that can be activated or deactivated, which is called the War Mode: War mode is the new wild PvP mode of Battle for Azeroth. By activating the war mode, you will only meet players in war mode. In this mode, your PvP talents will still be active no matter where you are. Doing quests in war mode will give you bonuses to experience and rewards. Killing players in war mode will grant you Conquest Points. To activate or deactivate the war mode and choose your Honor Talents, you will have to be in Stormwind or Orgrimmar, according to your faction. Once activated, your Honor talents will also be active all the time, whether you are engaged in PvP combat or not. War mode offers a new way to engage wild PvP in BFA. In addition to activating your PvP abilities, this game mode allows you to kill players of the opposing faction and offers bonuses when becoming the assassin as well. The assassins who killed the most players (10+) will have bigger bounties for their heads. You can freely attack and be attacked by the players of the opposite faction. The item level of your equipment is adapted to not create too big imbalances between the players. If you successfully defeat 10 consecutive players, you become an assassin, increasing your damage and healing by 15%. If you kill a lot of players, your position will appear on the enemy’s player map and your head will worth a bounty. Regularly in war mode, a Horde Zeppelin will drop a crate on an area of Kul'Tiras and a flying machine of the Alliance on Zandalar. Such as games like "Battle Royale", you will have to go to the location of the supply crater to loot its content. Which means that the drop zone will be extremely dangerous, you will have to be ready to fight! To learn more, refer to this guide here. Dueler’s guild: a 1vs1 arena feature! This is one of the big news for PvP on BFA: you can now make the arena solo and you can fight directly other players. Several rewards will be available, such as high-facts, titles and tabards. You will need to be at level 120 and have War Mode enabled to be eligible for this feature. NPCs will be located in the Duelist Guild, in Boralus for the Alliance, and in Zuldazar for the Horde. To join the queue for the duel arena, you will need to contact the Guards of the Dueler’s Guild to play it. Once in the queue, you will be able to move around the area’s headquarters, but do not go too far or else you will lose your slot. After a while, two players are called into the arena to fight against each other, and a countdown of 15 seconds will be triggered to indicate the start of the duel. This outside zone is vulnerable to attacks by the opposite faction, although the guards will try to defend it during your match. War Campaign Fight and conquer the territories of the opposing faction, establish outposts and recruit allies to claim territory. Rewards will be given as you progress! You will be able to follow your war campaign missions in real time at the top right corner of the quest log. The upgrades for the war campaign will be available after level 114. They will cost war resources and give your character various bonuses into the open world or certain game modes. Just like Warlords of Draenor garrison missions or Legion's class hall missions, you can send champions and troops to complete them for you, using war resources. War resources are the main currency of the campaigns. You can get some by completing quests, by finding treasure chests and World quests (which will be available at level 120). The bases of the war campaigns are located inside warships placed at the capitals of Kul'Tiras and Zandalar. They will unlock many features of the expansion and will offer various rewards. There are two military campaigns: one for the Alliance, one for the Horde. These will be the main chain quests of this new expansion, just like Legion's class field campaigns. We hope our community enjoys this new expansion and we will keep doing our best to provide you with the best services and content The Firestorm Staff
