  1. 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
  2. transfer

    Hello I started playing Wow arround a week ago with a friend. We started in Legion because we though BFA would be very buggy as it is a beta yet. Now, we want to transfer our legion characters to BFA bc there is more people active than in legion. I read in the firestorm forum that character copy will be implemented soon in the latest expansion. Is there a stimated date for character copy to be implemented in bfa? We dont really want to keep playing in legion if we wont be able to transfer our char to bfa anytime soon.
  3. The closed Beta of Battle for Azeroth (BFA) has been launched on February 11, welcoming hundreds of players to try it in early access. We thank all of them for helping us fixing different types of issues along the weeks and it is now time to officially announce the Sethraliss realm! The realm opens its doors on March 16 at 2:00pm CET A whole new realm named Sethraliss will be available for Battle for Azeroth next week. If you wish to have a glimpse of the new expansion of World of Warcraft you can already participate to the open Beta available until Friday, 15 March. The realm of the open Beta will then be deleted, as well as any character progression done on the server. Summary of the content Account Every character on Sylvanas will be copied to Sethraliss. Players will keep all their gear along with a maximum of 10,000 golds per character. Guilds will be saved but guilds' banks will be cleared out. PvE Two new allied races: Dark Iron Dwarf and Mag'har Orc. Four fully available zones (the two last zones will be completed later). Eight dungeons will be available at launch (the two last dungeons will be added later). No raid at launch. Addition of the heart of Azeroth. PvP Two new arenas will be available at launch, as well as a rework of arena. War mode will include air supply drops and the Dueler’s Guild. Prestige has been deleted and the maximum level of honor has been increased to 500 (honor is reset for every player of the realm). Professions Application of the professions rework.

You can also download BFA through the minimal client to enjoy the expansion more quickly or use the Firestorm launcher. You can already download Battle for Azeroth to play on the open Beta or to be ready for March 16: Download Battle for Azeroth Every character on Sylvanas (Legion) will be copied to the realm. On Sethraliss you will keep all of your gear and unlock content -only your gold will be lowered to start the new expansion. Every character will be transferred with a maximum of 10,000 golds in their inventory. It will avoid giving some players an unfair advantage that would unbalance the realm's economy. Guilds will be saved but the entire content of Guild's banks will be cleared out (items and golds). You will have the opportunity to start the adventure with one of your already existing character from Sylvanas or from scratch with a whole new character. On Battle for Azeroth the maximum level is 120 and every statistics of the game have been lowered (some items have also been deleted or edited): your characters and gear statistics will then all be lowered and some of your items may have been removed or edited (ex: mythic keystone or depleted items like artifact power tokens).

The first quest of the expansion will automatically launch once you arrive. New races Two new allied races come with Battle for Azeroth: Dark Iron Dwarf for the Alliance and Mag'har Orc for the Horde. Those two races will be immediately available and you will start at level 20 instead of level 1. Once you reach level 110 on the Dark Iron Dwarf or the Mag'har Orc you will receive a unique appearance set as well as the mount exclusive to this race. New zones Two new continents will be available in Battle for Azeroth, each with its own zones. On each continent, two zones out of three will be entirely available at the launch of Sethraliss: Zandalar, new continent for the Horde: Nazmir and Zuldazar Kul'Tiras, new continent for the Alliance: Tiragarde Sound and Drustvar Each available zone offers all of the quests (main & secondary), emissaries and world quests. Nevertheless, you can freely travel through Vol'dun and Stormsong Valley and set up the war campaign camp. You will need to set up the 3 war campaign camps (one on each zone of the opposing faction) to get access to emissaries and world quests. Vol'dun and Stormsong Valley will soon be entirely available. Dungeons At the launch of Sethraliss, 8 dungeons will be available (out of 10): Zandalar: Atal'Dazar, The MOTHERLODE!!!, The Underrot, Temple of Sethraliss Kul'Tiras: Freehold, Tol Dagor, Shrine of the Storm, Waycrest Manor The dungeons King's Rest and Siege of Boralus will be added later when the rest of the war campaign will be available.

The Dueler's Guild is a new PvP feature which allows 1v1 combats to obtain achievements. Go to Zuldazar for the Horde and Boralus for the Alliance to participate (more informations here). Prestige and honor Prestige has been removed in Battle for Azeroth and the honor level has been increased to 500. Now bound to the account, the honor level will be reset for every player.

  4. Tuning the Gnomecorder quest is bugged. Please fix it.
  5. 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
  6. 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! Also, if you want to jump to a certain point on the video, you can just click on one of the following links and it will open the video on a new tab on the precise moment where the feature is being explained: TIMESTAMPS Countdown 0:00 Intro 1:30:00 Heart of Azeroth Quest line: Hour of Reckoning 1:36:03 The Battle for Lordaeron 1:37:32 A Dying World 1:39:55 The Heart of Azeroth 1:50:22 Infusing the Heart 1:52:42 The Speaker's Imperative 1:54:42 Zandalar Quest line: Mission Statment 1:57:37 The Stormwind Extraction 1:59:32 Welcome to Zuldazar 2:04:41 Rastakhan 2:06:32 Speaker of the Horde 2:10:31 Discreet Discussions 2:11:57 To Matters at Hand 2:15:06 We Need Each Other 2:15:40 Zuldazar 2:19:26 Trust of a King 2:19:41 Tal'Gurub 2:21:18 The Port Of Zandalar 2:21:27 Needs a Little Body // The Urn of Voices 2:29:45 Fuel for the Voodoo 2:30:13 Rare mob: Gahz'ralka 2:34:18 Dungeon - Atal'Dazar: Trash Trash 1 - To the first boss 2:38:43 Trash 2 - To the second boss 2:45:03 Trash 3 - Way to the end boss 2:58:28 Bosses Boss 1 - Priestess Alun'za 2:43:43 Boss 2 - Vol'Kaal 2:49:33 Boss 3 - Rezan 2:56:00 Boss 4 - Yazma 2:59:53 Duel Area: Battle against Cybra 3:05:38 Battle against Cybra Nr2 3:07:38 Battle against Sketter 3:10:55 Air Drop: Air Drop Looting 2:23:48 Extra info: War Campaign 2:16:54 Level up and select trait 2:24:20 Firestorm Staff: Special thanks 3:17:28 Have a nice day!
  7. 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
  8. The implementation of the newest World of Warcraft expansion (Battle for Azeroth, BFA) is near and for that, we have enabled the tab on the website for being able to see every update performed on this expansion. Players will now be able to see the live updates on this expansion by checking this link. The Quality Assurance Team from Firestorm is recruiting! If you find capable of helping us as a member of the QA team, it's time to let everyone know you and postulate. The slots are limited. We will only accept the most motivated members in order to help us finding errors and making reports out of them on this new expansion. The official language of the QA team is English, so obviously it's required to have a decent level of English for ensuring proper communication. More info and recruit post The Firestorm Team
