  1. Greetings! We are VERY excited to announce our new website is live www.elysium-project.org! The new website includes a new shop, realm statistics, character armory, account information (including any bans and the reason), character auctions, and other account related changes! Shop features: Unique Mounts unavailable in the game Vanity Pets Unique Tabards XP Stop tokens for twinks (stops the char from gaining any EXP while they own the token - can be destroyed to resume EXP gain) Account Services: Race change Faction change Email change Model changes (hair/face/etc) Name change (Also looking at limiting this to once a week or something to avoid ninjas/bad reputiation people getting away with things.) Character restore (restores deleted characters) Un-Stuck character feature Character Auction House Players will be able to sell their characters for Elysium Coins (the currency used in the shop). This can in no way be traded in for real currency. Players will put their character up on the AH for a certain amount of EC, and people interested in buying will buy for EC. This is the only legal/legitimate way for people to trade characters to each other. Also there is a Character Armory available (like realmplayers except for us, and way nicer) as well as server stats and some other cool features. Payment for Elysium Coins We have additional payment options on the way. Please be patient while these are added. For the time being, payment can be done through various REGIONAL options when you click "Buy Coins". Message me personally if you're having issues with this process and I'll do my best to help. Important Notice Please be aware that we will NEVER offer in game services or items that give ANY advantage to players. Pay-to-win is NOT an option on our realms, and we will always make project decisions with that in mind. The new website uses SSL to ensure all personal data are as secure as possible when using the new website. The website is still under development — so if you encounter any issues, please let us know!
  2. Greetings! Many of you have been asking questions about how we are funding the servers. During the stress test, all costs were handled by the staff. However, as launch is approaching, we turn to you for aid. Until now, we have had a hidden donation link where individuals could donate anonymously if they so wished. However, now we must ask for your help in maintaining the servers. We will always remain free to play, and never offer any sort of donation rewards. But as the project has grown astronomically with the merging of the Nostalrius project, this request has become a regrettable necessity. We are currently paying over 900 euros a month (620 from servers, plus additional fees for repositories, certificates, security features, etc), and this number will increase to over 1200 euros monthly with the release of the fresh server. We are all volunteers in this project. We have and will continue to contribute our own personal funds towards the hosting, but please understand that we cannot do it alone. We simply do not have the capability of doing so. We would also like to remind you that none of the funds contributed will ever go to an individual. Every cent will go directly to game server or web server upkeep. If you wish to help us, you have two options. Option one: The hosting company we are using allows for anyone to directly pay for server hosting. This way, you are able to renew the server. However, if you use this option, you must pay for the entire month, and not just a portion of it. Option two: If you wish to donate a smaller amount of your choosing, you may contribute to our Web Server Hosting. How to donate: Simply go to the control panel on our website, log in, and follow the links and instructions. In this time of need, we want to thank you all for your support and generosity.
  3. Greetings Elysium Community, We have some great news to share with you, but here’s a brief emulation history lesson first! Vanilla WoW was first released in 2004, and it’s now been more than 10 years since official support has ended. After these 10 years, the WoW emulation community has been unable to deliver (in totality) the same finalized product that took Blizzard 5 years to develop. This is despite all of the passion and dedication of multiple development teams. So what has caused such a delay in finalizing a stable, and accurate, WoW emulator? Initially, each team was developing its own core privately, and closely guarded its secrets. This caused individual development teams to work separately, rather than together for one goal. Often projects would shut down, and that hard work would be lost. Everyone tried to keep up with Blizzard’s timeline, but things weren’t done properly. Developers started working on Vanilla, then, without finishing, jumped straight into working on TBC. Then moved on to WoTLK, etc — and the cycle of leaving unfinished projects behind continued. Additionally, some projects were driven by ideology, while others endeavored to profit from illegal game servers. For the past 10 years, many projects have been selfish and cared only about their own survival. Developers drove players into flame wars on message boards, stole other team’s code and hid their own, and launched DDoS attacks on rival servers. The emulation scene is as competitive, combative, and selfish as it was back then. Despite their passion for coding and development, no open-source project has succeeded, while commercial projects continue to divide the community, driven by their financial interest. However, the winds are changing. Right now, emulation isn’t about “playing WoW for free” like it was 10 years ago, but more about restoring a Vanilla WoW experience that no longer exists. After Nostalrius shut down, new developers who’ve never had anything to do with WoW servers before became interested in the emulation cause. Ideologically, we’re in an incredible spot. We have community support, we have dedicated fans and developers, and we have a strong working team to finish what we have started. Which brings us to our big announcement today: The Elysium Project will be joining forces with the team over at Crestfall to combine our efforts and finalize development of Legacy WoW! From this point on we will be sharing our passion, experience, developmental, administrative and marketing assets in order to share and grow our community. Combining our team’s experience in data security will help us protect our work from the constant threat of hack attempts from other projects and various interests. This collaboration will deliver to you, our dedicated community and players, the experience you have been craving for the past decade: stable gaming servers that will stand the test of time, without the fear of having to transfer characters around or start from scratch. Together we hope to set an example for other projects, and hopefully the wars amongst the community will finally be over. We cannot stress this enough: we're not in this for money or fame. All we want is to deliver an amazing legacy experience. This may include, down the road, having dedicated teams for each expansion of the game. We’ve had the support of our players for many years, and now is the time for the WoW development community to step up, bury the hatchet, and get to work — together. Finally.
  4. Well Met and Lok’tar! Elysium team is proud to reveal several details surrounding the upcoming launch of our Burning Crusade realm. In keeping with the accelerated progression timeline for Nighthaven, we are anticipating a public launch date at the end of 2018. Since launching Nighthaven in November 2017, the Elysium team has received thousands of messages from players, asking us what has happened to their old characters. Our community is very important to us, and we are thrilled to announce that the release of TBC will finally enable us to unite all Elysium players, past and present, under a single realm! Characters from the following inactive realms will be eligible for transfer: • Nighthaven PVP • Darrowshire (Nostalrius PVE) • Anathema (Nostalrius PVP) • Zeth’kur PVP • Elysium PVP Legacy realm characters will be restored from their October 2017 state. Closed Beta Starting this Month – How to Participate: Our closed beta test realm will be opening on June 10th. Elysium is looking for only the most accomplished guilds to participate in the first round of closed testing, which will last approximately 3 months. If you think your guild is ready to cross through the Dark Portal, we want to hear from you! Interested Guild Masters can apply by sending a PM directly to me on the Elysium Project forum. Additional Information: • There will be a separate bug-tracker for TBC related issues, which will be available to the public on our github. • Nighthaven will remain online as Vanilla realm — even after TBC launch. • Following the closed beta, QA will be conducting a large-scale stress test of the server. Anybody with additional questions, concerns, or suggestions is welcome to contact the Elysium team through our Forums, Discord, or Social media!
  5. После следующего обновления сервера для регистрации на БГ будут доступны команды .warsong .alterac .arathi
  6. Всем привет! В первую очередь, мы хотели бы поблагодарить тех 50 бета-тестеров, которые сделали всё возможное, чтобы предоставить нашим разработчикам информацию о недоработках игрового мира The Burning Crusade! Вскоре бета станет полностью открытой для всех: https://discord.gg/Jer9dCG Следите за новостями! Где бы вы не играли ранее — на Elysium, Nostalrius, Zeth'Kur или Nighthaven: все персонажи объединяться для битвы в Запределье, в одном игровом мире! Переходим к другим новостям! Мерджу быть! Мы планируем объединить старые Elysium PvP, Darrowshire PvE (ex. Nostalrius PvE) и Zeth'Kur PvP с нашим основным игровым миров Nighthaven! Разумеется, объединение будет осуществляться так, чтобы ресурсы и золото объединённых миров останутся в балансе и не повлекут серьезных последствий для экономики. Приоритет в именах персонажей останется за Nighthaven; а вот Anathema PvP не подходит для слияния в ближайшей время, так как находится на другом патче, но тоже, в какой-то момент, будет слита с объединённым миром. Изначально мердж планировался перед запуском TBC, однако мы бы хотели, чтобы вы успели подговориться к переходу и поучаствовать в эвенте открытия Черного Портала вместе со всеми.
  7. Пока тестируем, еще не прошёл. 🙂
  8. Будут автоматически восстановлены 15-го августа 🙂
  9. Сбор ресурсов начат. Орда и Альянс объединяют усилия в защите своего мира от по-настоящему опасной угрозы. За Ордянс! 🔥 Желаем удачи.
  10. Этот маунт даёт 100% к скорости, не беспокойтесь 🙂
  11. Добрый вечер. 60% описаны в подсказке предмета, это визуальный баг. По-настоящему же маунт даёт 100% к скорости бега. О каком именно идёт речь?
  12. Dear community! To meet the growing interest in FRESH realms, the Elysium Project will be introducing a new realm each month. These realms will feature very fast progression, which means that the entire timeline will be finished within three months which meets the average lifetime expectancy of a fresh realm nowadays. Rates are tweaked accordingly, you can get to level 60 easily on a single day! Drop rates are increased 25x so you can get your preferred gear within 1 week. This won't take any influence on our TBC development, each fresh realm will progress to TBC as already announced for Nighthaven and our previous realms (Elysium PvP, Anathema and Darrowshire). Everyone will be able to enjoy our well developed TBC infrastructure while levelling regulary a new character on Vanilla. The first realm will open on the 1st May 2018 and is called Gliss'Kur Ultimate Fresh!
  13. If things go smooth, the merge will happen within 2 weeks. Hopefully, earlier...
  14. Greetings, Patch 1.9 — The Gates of Ahn’Qiraj coming soon! 4th august! One month has passed since the Dragons of nightmare got sent back to they're eternal sleep. But peace, as you already know, is very fragile. Rumours echos from the Travelers which passed Silithus. The sandstorms become heavier and the scarabs and bugs in begin to crawl around. Restless and anxious. Something evil is coming. Prepare yourself for Patch 1.9 The Gates of Ahn’Qiraj! 4th August, 2018. War Effort We're back with another Classic event. The Gates of Ahn'Qiraj are sealed by powerful magic, and to open them, an elite guild must brave a number of trials to reconstruct a long-lost artifact: the Scepter of the Shifting Sands. Both Alliance and Horde must work together to gather war supplies for the combined army of the two factions. Cooperation is key to the success of NightHaven! Prepare for battle fellow players, this exhilarating event in WoW history will begin on August 4th, 2018
  15. И там, и там можно. 🙂 Найдешь сам, не маленький!
  16. IMPORTANT NEWS: Merge of Elysium PVP & Darrowshire Characters! We\'ve confirmed the merging of our previous server characters, Elysium & Darrowshire, into Nighthaven! We will have a date for you shortly! Every merged character will receive a forced name change. For further information please visit this thread. The following limitations will be applied to each transferred account: 1,000g PER CHARACTER ONLY Guild Banks must contact Elysium Staff members Rain, Shenna or Crogge to discuss importing certain items and the expected limitations. High value raid and crafting materials will be a limited amount per character once the merge has started final numbers will be posted. TBC CLOSE & OPEN BETA Almost 2 weeks ago now, we launched our TBC beta realm and invited the top guilds on Nighthaven to help us test. We received an astounding amount of bug reports and feedback — we have since made some major changes. Thank you again to everyone who has been involved thus far! We look forward to a great TBC launch at the end of 2018 / start of 2019. Elysium\'s TBC Beta is now open to the public for testing! Please head over and follow our Discord for the vital information on submitting bug reports, how to create a TBC account as well as anything else you may need for testing purposes! Please keep in mind that this IS a beta. Although we are nearly complete in our development of the realm, there may be some bugs for you to report. At the end of 2018, once Nighthaven has had enough time to progress through Naxxramas, we will open the dark portal for all Nighthaven characters to transfer to the TBC LIVE realm. Nighthaven will STAY vanilla! You can create an account here: TBC Beta account creation PATCH 1.8 — COMING SOON Nighthaven players: Prepare yourself for Patch 1.8 Dragons of Nightmare, Coming this July 8th! SHOP UPDATES Some new mounts and companions have been added, such as: Snow Cub (Vanity Pet). The thick snow near Dun Morogh acts as camouflage for snow cubs learning to hunt. Reins of the Nightwatch Wolf (Mount) One of the six Direwolf pups found by the children of House Stark own Ghost today. Shadow Stag & White Unicorn (Mounts) Tired of walking? Level for level, meter for meter. Then this is what you need! A mount for level 1 with 0% speed! (Normal running speed) HARDWARE CHANGES The recent hardware changes (June 30,evening) are expected to improve some the the latency our non-EU players have been experiencing.

    We need a new PvE server!

    If we ever open a new Vanilla realm before TBC launch, it might be PVE :) But it can't happen anytime soon, because we can't split the population of our only left realm!

    Please contact me in PM and write your Payment method and the transaction IDs!
  19. We have noticed that one of our drives for the server is failing, we have planned a hardware swap regardless, the Lead Team has decided to swap the entire machine over to a newer system. We will be doing this tonight at 11pm server time (23:00) We have already set up an SQL replication so the downtime should be rather short. There will be no progression lost and no issues are expected to occur. The hardware changes are expected to improve some the the latency our non-EU players have been experiencing with a change of the server location. Thank you all for your patience! EXPECTED DOWNTIME: 2 HOURS ALSO, CRITICALLY IMPORTANT: As we are sure many of you have heard, (we have received many messages), the database of LightsHope was again compromised. This has happened a few times before. As a security measure, we urge all Elysium players and staff to change your passwords immediately. You can do this via the website user control panel at elysium-project.org or by typing in game; .account password $oldpassword $newpassword $newpassword We do not know the extent of the breach, we have received many emails containing forum database and screenshots showing two factor authentication recovery keys. If you have any affiliation, or even have an account with their servers, your account could be at risk. Please we encourage you to change your password.
  20. Инну спросите, только если она захочет)
  21. Результаты объявили уже давно и забыли про конкурс. Следите за новостями в ВК :) https://vk.com/elysiumwow?w=wall-58312512_131683
  22. Мы рады вам сообщить, что мир Elysium TBC Beta открыт для тестирования! Пожалуйста, обратите внимание на канал #tbc-announcements что в нашем Discord сервере (https://discord.gg/MUVvRKb), именно здесь вы найдете всю необходимую информацию о том, как правильно отправлять отчеты об ошибках, как создать учетную запись БК и всю другую информацию, которая поможет вам в тестировании! Напоминаем, это все еще Beta! Хоть мы и провели достаточно много работы над данным игровым миром, но в нем все еще могут находиться внутриигровые ошибки, отчет о которых мы с нетерпением ждем от вас. К концу 2018 года, когда игроки мира Nighthaven уже будут закрывать Наксрамас, мы откроем новый игровой мир с версией БК, на который будут (по вашему желанию) перенесены все персонажи когда-либо существовавших на нашем сервере! Сам мир Nighthaven останется классической версией WoW 1.12.1! Зарегистрироваться на открытое бета тестирование БК вы можете здесь: https://tbcbeta.elysium-project.org/ Также, мы подтверждаем, что в скором времени объединим персонажей наших предыдущих миров Elysium с миром Nighthaven! Как только Nighthaven перейдет на версию 1.8, мы также добавим персонажей с мира Darrowshire, чтобы люди могли вернуться к своим старым персонажам. Обратите внимание, что персонажи будут перенесены с ограниченным кол-вом золота/предметов влияющих на экономику.

    Vanity Shop Update

    Dear community, After the team meeting last night we came to the conclusion that we remove all XP tokens from the shop, this change is taking effect immediately. We will focus on the release of cosmetic items and features which take no influence on the gameplay. Furthermore, we came to the conclusion that we will gather community input before we introduce any shop features which may upset players. This kind of discussions will take place in our forums. We will post a general update about Nighthaven and our TBC Beta in the next days together with our monthly update email.
  24. This is one of the options. Not the Stratholme but at least Elysium PvP which is the same patch to Nighthaven. We might have a long way discussion with our community before we make any decision.
  25. Может на почте есть какие-то деньги?
