  1. Hi there. It's because you transferred the character from another realm. This is to avoid selling transferred chars for money. Thanks! Rain
  2. Hi there - no there is no system setup like you mentioned. The only potential issue could be related to an addon you're all using, or for some reason, your WDB cache folder had to be cleared. This is the first I'm hearing of the issue since we started a few years ago. If it happens again please take a video and let me know. Rain
  3. Easter Event Update It's Easter Weekend, the Elysium Project is running a themed event from April 22 to April 28. Farm the Eggs The druids of Azeroth have summoned forth Easter Rabbits to hide eggs throughout the world for players to collect. Farming gold and mats for raids is fun, but think of how impressed your raid leader will be whenthey hear you took a couple of days off to search for eggs that the Easter bunnies have placed around Azeroth. Collecting will not be easy though; the more valuable rewards can only be found in the higher level contested zones. Three different types of eggs can be found: 1. Magic eggs will transform you. 2. Rotten eggs. 3. Collectable eggs are sought by the collector NPCs found in the faction capitals and can be exchanged for various rewards. Note: Contrary to earlier reports, a PvP death will not result in the loss of any eggs collected. Rabbit Invasion Throughout the day Cottontail the Easter Spirit will appear in Elwynn Forest or Durotar, accompanying the egg dispersing rabbits. Players can collect these eggs, but should be wary of the Easter Spirit catching them doing it. As with all things in Azeroth, with Light comes Void, and Cottontail will require taming now and then, or to avoid local players getting debuffed.

    My character gone

    Hmm - it seems it was disconnected from your account upon the merge, or, your account itself wasn't brought over. I've restored the character to your current account, Scorv. Enjoy!

    Hi there. When you log in - what account name are you using?
  6. Greetings, Thank you all for voting this week on the new Vanilla realm we will be launching on March 30th! Here are the results: EXP Rate: x1 Blizzlike EXP Battlegrounds: All BGs open at launch (AB/AV/WSG) - We have made changes to the queue system to correct issues from Nighthaven. Hopefully these issues will be fixed. Raid Dungeons: MC/Ony/BWL Open upon launch Patch Progression: Fast paced. Same as Nighthaven (Approximately 1 year to complete all content). Timeline to be released soon. PVP Gear: Update @ Patch 1.7 Riding Costs/Training: 900g @ Start of realm for training. Mounts BOP. (Originally this is released in 1.12) We appreciate everyone's conversation while determining the best fit for the next realm launch. Our decision to not run a increased XP realm was a tough one, as the poll was very evenly tied. However the main points to avoid increased EXP were: Increased EXP allows certain illegal activities to become easier, such as: Account selling, which comes from: Botting Multibox grinding Gold Farming Increased levels at a quicker pace allow higher grade mats, crafting, and profession related gold farming to be easier We have always been a Blizzlike realm, and wish to maintain that identity x1 rate allows for a longer term of time on our realms. Although there is Classic launching in 4/5 months, and our TBC realm in Q2, we do want this realm to be a long term realm that people will invest time in. Whether Classic is all its made up to be or not, we want a fresh experience for players going into 2019. To make up for the potential time constraints for some players going into Classic, we wanted to launch the realm with open BGs, raids at a quicker pace, and tedious patch changes (such as mount costs) at an earlier stage in the server progression than previously done. Again, thanks all for your continued support of Elysium. We're all very thankful for you playing here - and we're looking forward to our latest launch on March 30th! Rain (and the lead team).
  7. Greetings friends, Nighthaven & Elysium’s past year and a half has been amazing. With Crogge & Shenna leaving the project and new ownership at Elysium for the past 4 months, we have seen some incredible turn around. Nighthaven has just under 2.5 million characters, and almost 1.1 MILLION accounts. Many of you have reached out over the past few months for information on our upcoming Burning Crusade expansion realm. The support has been phenomenal! The hype is real between both our wonderful community, and our staff. We have had countless hours of testing from our QA staff and Nighthaven guilds in preparation for this launch. We certainly would not be where we are now without that dedication. When we decided to start TBC development, we had one goal in mind: Be the best. So, what does that mean to us? Flawless day 1 launch (Anyone who follows other servers has seen how rough their launches have been the past few months) Realm/server capability of handling over 10k connections 95%+ Quest completion 100% Dungeon and raid completion Dark Portal Event Fully Blizzlike experience No custom content Blizzlike class and gameplay mechanics Ability to transition your characters seamlessly from Nighthaven to TBC 100% working arenas and battlegrounds Given these high standards we’ve set for ourselves, we have pushed hard to have everything complete by end of Quarter 1 2019 (end of March). This, unfortunately, is no longer a viable date. We have had some developer IRL issues the past 2 months that saw our main devs go very part time until their lives were sorted. We’ve hired on new people, but it’s a difficult process to find people who are as dedicated to this project as we are. That being said, we have recently gained access to some new developers who will be coming on board to assist us in the bulk of what’s remaining (quests and database related issues). These final fixes aren’t difficult - they are simply time consuming. So, we’re going to push back our TBC release to end of Q2 2019 - released before the summer! Obviously we don’t want to do this, and I would love to launch TODAY - but it’s just not complete, and I don’t think its fair to offer a product that isn’t going to perform to the high standard we set for ourselves. That brings me to my next announcement … Our thought process has gone something along the lines of “Well, we’re in 1.12 on Nighthaven, we’re losing players due to no end game content, and we have no choice but to delay TBC. What’s the solution?” Then … a booming voice came, seemingly out of nowhere, like SIL himself had entered our voice chat: “FRESH”. By the grace of SIL, it was decided. Lets launch a Fresh Vanilla PVP realm for our community to race to 60, start some new classes, experience FRESH content, incorporate some players from other servers that are closing, form new guilds and new friendships - and once TBC launches, allow the transfer to TBC from BOTH realms if they choose - regardless of patch progression. “But what about my Nighthaven character? I’ve worked so hard!” - Yes. We know. We 100% agree, and we don’t want you to lose that progress. It will be completely transferrable to TBC upon its launch. Nighthaven will stay online, of course. Fresh Realm Details: Fast Paced Vanilla (Same patch progression as NH) PVP Launch date: Saturday, March 30th (Mark your calendars!) Name: TBD (Likely we’ll have a player contest to name it!) Elysium/Nostalrius core Monthly PVP Tournaments PVP Battleground Optimizations Transfer to TBC Expansion Realm During Nighthaven’s infancy, we had some issues with mount costs, and world bosses. We want to stress to everyone that those issues have been fixed and won’t be altered at any time by the staff. Yes, we realize Classic is launching sometime in the “summer”. We intend to be in TBC at that time, and anticipate people will still want to play for free, on our truly classic server - not Activision’s business model classic. Time will tell! I know a lot of you will be disappointed with the TBC delay - but lets keep our chin up, keep playing the game we love, and leave it up to me to whip the devs into shape. Thanks all! Rain Administrator, Elysium Project
  8. There is a fix for this somewhere on our github. Please search for it. https://github.com/elysium-project/bug-tracker/issues We don't support addons.
  9. This also needs more context. I don't know what I'm looking at with your screenshot. Is this on our TBC beta realm? Where is this exactly?

    Transferred charachter from Nostalrius

    Hi there. If you played on Anathema with that character, it will be restored (hopefully) in January! However if you played on Elysium PVP or Darrowshire, it has already been merged into Nighthaven and should be accessible! Rain

    Metzen not working again for me

    Did you try deleting the items in your backpack related with the quest before accepting the quest again?

    Winter Veil

    They should be there! Sometimes they get taken and the respawn rate is variable.
  13. Hi all, After implementing the latest evasion mechanic changes, our wonderful devs have now begun the uphill battle of cleaning up our spell resist code and making it as Blizzlike as possible. This will be a fundamental change to our code, and its important to get feedback and any additional information/references from players. Please take a look at the GitHub post below: https://github.com/elysium-project/classic-bug-tracker/issues/1002 We are also very interested in any evidence you have on what boss spell resist levels should be. If you have input or suggestions, please make sure to provide references and as much information as possible to backup any claims. Thanks everyone!

    Metzen not working again for me

    Hi there. I would suggest abandoning the quest, deleting your WDB Folder, and picking it up again. The quest is confirmed as fixed.
