Some fresh, very fresh news!

Much fresh information with few specifics and explanations.

Fresh realm, bonus experience, and transfers! Tune in!

Fresh cataclysm realm

Our Dragonwrath realm has been around for more than 6 years, it has survived many changes, implementations, patch changes and crashes. It has been and still is, a home to hundreds of thousands of players all across the globe. We're proud of what we've created and still want to keep it available for players to enjoy for free, that is why we have made plans to release a fresh cataclysm realm which has yet no planned release date.

With our experience gained throughout these over 6 years, we plan to provide a splendidly working content for everyone. To polish and rework all 1-85 zones.
As well, before anyone asks:

  • Will Vashj'ir be there?
    - Yes
  • Will the rest of Twilight Highlands be there?
    - Yes
  • Will Badlands be there?
    - Yes
  • Will the content be prepared beforehand?
    - Yes

Our Dragonwrath players will be able to transfer some characters based on rules which will be published in the future.

We will begin with content from patch 4.0.6a and progress into 4.3.4.

We will prepare many mechanics to allow players to experience the 4.0.6a content patch in the best way possible on a 4.3.4 client.

And many more specifics which are yet to be agreed upon and published.

Experience Bonus x3

With our weekend bonuses as voted for by our community and after receiving questions as to when's the next bonus. As to encourage those who are already so tired of leveling a new character, thus in the next week we'll enable an x3 bonus experience for the duration of server transfers (more below). Those who still wish to stick to slower leveling will be able to change their experience gained to x1 with an in-game command.

Spread the word, invite your friends and family and stay tuned!

Character transfers

As the Dragon Soul Heroic practically forecasts the end of progression for a cataclysm realm, we want to allow players to transfer their characters from other servers to experience all of the present content, the transfers will most probably be conducted in the same manner as the previous ones, although the specifics will be published within the next week same with an exact date (somewhere in the next week as well).

Players will be able to transfer their fully leveled up characters from all expansions up to Mists of Pandaria and receive a fresh 80 level character with a basic item set and basic skills.

 


Crossfaction Battlegrounds

The system is near the end of their development, soon you'll be able to see the results of this work on the main realm, which hopefully will help with Alliance to Horde ratio in PvP until it evens out.

Dragon Soul HC

Of course, we haven't forgotten about the release of Dragon Soul Heroic.

As you can witness in our latest changelog, Pelekon has been working hard with the testers to check all boss mechanics and prepare them for the final release. The last thing that's left are final tests!

i think its a bad idea this will split our population. it is alrdy small population.

Some bad, very bad news! I played on so many private servers ! I've seen a lot of servers die because of this ! If the server starts falling, make it shine again, don't divide it in 2 or bring new expansion, make this one great first ! Bring all content missing first ! Get 2000 online players at least on one realm first ! You are ending this server, you won't get new players, or only very few and people will start moving between realms making each realm's population around 200 or 300 until people starts leaving ! Good job with that really ! I just hope I went full retard and didn't understand what I just saw up here !

I think better thing to do is just open fresh 4.0.6 pvp realm only

@polytra I hear your concerns and I am familiar with them as well as I do understand them. These concerns are valid and we have plans for features to avoid that because we've noticed the results of that on other servers. More information will be posted in the future.


Velar

Velar 2018-07-22 10:39:06 #

that means you will be able to transfer every 80 you have on dragonwrath to new realm and have insta 80 characters with basic stuff on them?


Iliaden

Iliaden 2018-07-22 10:52:24 #

So, there will be a MoP server instead of Dragonwrath?

With respect and no hate intent to the decision of yours, I understand you guys are trying to make improvements of the server that you guys created from scratch 6 years ago. Which has brought countless of people together from all around the world and started the bond friendship and also enemies"on some extent" among them along the journey throughout cata experience.. but the decision of making new fresh realm only divides the people as the population currently is low on current realm.. some might like the idea to start fresh but everyone don't share the same goal.. it makes no sense having 2 separate realm but the end goal is the same that is patch 4.3.4 "unless the population was like more than 4k every day" it would make sense to implement new realm to stabilize. These are my thoughts.. once again I m sorry if i criticised the server but I meant no disrespect. Thank you for your time


kroater

kroater 2018-07-22 11:18:43 #

That's a great idea! High time for making the best Cata server ever.


Valkasar

Valkasar 2018-07-22 11:44:35 #

I back Yanarp's thoughts: new server sounds lovely on paper but, to be blunt, the reason I no longer play in Atlantiss (while I still care about the server as a whole) was the lack of effective population. If the new server means to split in two that already receding population, I dread to see all you worked so hard on completely ruined On other angle: will transfers be allowed between 4.3.4 atlantiss into the new 4.0.6b server? or only transfers from another servers out there?


kapeika

kapeika 2018-07-22 11:57:10 #

@polytra @valkasar you're talking about splits guys, but haven't you thought that the new realm can actually bring lots of other new players as well? It's an actual big pros for you, as you will be able to transfer your character to more populated server.

relinkosed 2018-07-23 12:54:01 #

Will the release be during the summer?


BlueHound

BlueHound 2018-07-23 01:23:22 #

Also the zones that you mentionned, meaning badlands, twilight highlands and vashj'ir, are they gonna be available on the old realm aswell or just on the new one ?


yggr

yggr 2018-07-23 02:11:31 #

@bluehound They will be on Dragonwrath


Mikelelel

Mikelelel 2018-07-23 02:23:36 #

So there be a 2nd realm but nothing will change on Dragonwrath? I mean all chars be the same as they are now ?


Mikelelel

Mikelelel 2018-07-23 02:24:22 #

I would have expected the future opening of a new expansion. Sin :(

well might be the time to go back to atlantiss for 10 weekly Santo's FL

I'd love to see the new realm, just pure excitement. I wish the content was stuck on firelands and never got further, dragon soul ruins every cataclysm server in terms of balance. Additionally, getting a fresh realm to have equal chances with others would be great! Full support, waiting for it to happen. Thanks for hope, another realm- if advertised well will bring people here. I have a question about transfer too - will I be able to hijack my characters from dragonwrath and paste in the new one? After a month or so when people get 85s, that'd be cool :D

What are the time gaps for the new realm? Will it be released by the end of the year?(2018)

Will both the ralms share RDF(till lvl 80) and AH?

Myamsar123 2018-07-23 06:08:33 #

That's some nice news. I really, really hope that the enslave demon thing from warlock will be available after the polsishing. And I hope more and more people will be using atlatiss servers after the realese.

Nice! Now i can wait 1 hour in dungeon finder in another realm !!! :)

I am very excited to hear these guys! I like this server, I hope it doesn't die, it's hard finding good servers nowadays


AurexXx

AurexXx 2018-07-23 08:14:19 #

I'm really afraid, that new realm will just reduce Dragonwrath's population


lakanman

lakanman 2018-07-24 02:39:39 #

Will MOP come to Dragonwrath? If so I will continue there. Otherwise I think I will start play on the new one only because I came into Dragonwrath pretty late.


ozzy91

ozzy91 2018-07-24 06:19:12 #

Sounds good. It is possible that this might lure some players, but it might do the exact opposite. For me - I'll play, haven't really achieve anything here yet. When will it lunch, so that I won't waste time on old realm?


Fernando90232

Fernando90232 2018-07-25 12:01:38 #

Release date pls!!


New__Prince

New__Prince 2018-07-25 03:09:13 #

Its very bad idea


New__Prince

New__Prince 2018-07-25 03:10:15 #

I like ply 4.3.4 and hc dragon soul


kapeika

kapeika 2018-07-25 04:29:28 #

The only bad thing I can see that it will slowly decrease the current Dragonwrath's realm, since newbies are waiting for the new realm. Atlantiss team shouldn't had to post such news so early, especially when the new realm won't be coming soon. Congratulations Dragonwrath, from this day your pop is going down! Sad truth. I'm hyped for the new realm! :)


Eight666

Eight666 2018-07-25 06:43:24 #

For a start I want to say hello Atlantis. I think this is quite wrong, we are all here because we support and love to play in this server. The majority of players want just a good worked 4.3.4. Why do we go back to 4.0.6? And why should we throw hours of play? If we had 3 or 4 thousand players, make a second server well, but given that there are about 800 regular players, it is just devastating everything built up to date. And for final just advice from me take into attention, how many players would like this and how much they would be against. I wish you good luck, and hopefully it helps the server.


Axemplar

Axemplar 2018-07-25 07:52:04 #

It seems like the majority of people posting comments are current players on the current Atlantiss cataclysm server. Most prospective players do not yet have account to post comments in this forum. As a prospective player I am very excited for a new progressive realm with a potential server population that well exceeds Atlantiss's current population. I do not want the developers discouraged by the majority pessimistic responses. Please continue with this project.


Bonzaiii

Bonzaiii 2018-07-26 09:04:46 #

What the heck means „hundreds of thousands of players”????? XD pls answer im curious af


MrAudino

MrAudino 2018-07-26 12:54:11 #

Honestly, as much as I am confused, I am not sure this would be such a great idea because I don't ever see more than 800 players online. We'll have to w8 and see... I hope things work out for the best.


Valkasar

Valkasar 2018-07-26 04:53:09 #

I maintain my question, and sorry if it's been answered, I looked but didn't find: Will we be able to transfer characters from Dragonwrath to the new server?


Dancingirl

Dancingirl 2018-07-26 11:41:34 #

Good job! I' really glad there's finally gonna be a server with Vashj'ir! Is it only gonna be on the new server or both? Like many people though, i'm worried about the pop being divided...And since not every character will be able to transfer, I don't see the point of starting to play on Dragonwrath (or continuing my lowbie) till the new server arrives. What are gonna be the transfer rules?


Trax444

Trax444 2018-07-28 01:29:34 #

Some fresh air is everything our server needs. This is great i like it.


bluepentahealer

bluepentahealer 2018-07-30 05:03:09 #

I have many friends with years on these accounts, and myself I have wroked very hard to build a wonderful large guild that makes me very happy. We are upset and worried about this because half our server wants to stay and half are willing to leave... I dont understand why cant you guys just patch up our current server..or do full Transfers? with the Gear and everything to LEVEL 85, not just MOP. Im upset that all the work weve all put into this server could now be worthless because both will be split instead of making this one stronger....


Arwyd

Arwyd 2018-07-30 08:44:41 #

So, when is this server releasing? Is a release date announced somewhere or is it still a project in the works? I've seen that transfers have been reactivated, but I assume that is for the Dragonwrath realm. Will we wait for DS HC before the new server? I'm kinda hyped to re-explore Cata and I've been searching for quite a while, but found no release date.


Volik13

Volik13 2018-07-30 01:20:34 #

That's good idea i think. People like fresh servers. But we have exp with hades, it was huge hype but it dead after 2-3 months. And, actually, i don't know why.
