56 posts in this topic

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.

battle-for-azeroth-download-available-firestorm

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).

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.

New zones

battle-for-azeroth-download-available-firestorm

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:

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

I have two questions if you do not mind. Will non-BoA non-BoA items be kept like mounts and sorts? Also, you said that one gets 10k gold per character. Does that mean if I have 10 characters with 10k gold on them (each), I get 100k on my entire account transfer?

Edit: I also forgot. I want to be able to farm the skins I am missing on legion before moving to BfA. Can I transfer my main character again after the copy?

They said they don't want players with a lot of gold screwing up the economy. And what they mean by that is...they sell gold in the cash shop for real money! You starting to get the picture now?

We are doing this due to Sylvanas inflation being screwd due to some gold exploits we had at the start of Legion!  This way everyone more or less will start at the same level! and we will monitor the gold in the realm closely to prevent said exploits if any is left

Awesome news, guys! After years of terrible back pains, can't wait to finally stand straight as an orc xD

I just want to know about the names: are we gonna have to confirm/rename at 1st login or the characters keep their names automatically?

Thanks a lot of the information, @Bestial I appreciate it.

Will you consider my suggestion here:

A lot of the players want cool names on any realm start. Most of the those names are taken by people who are no longer active and if the copy goes, those inactive characters will reserve the names on the new realm. If you flag low level and/or inactive characters, that will allow the users to have the names.
