  1. 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
  2. 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!

    My character gone

    Hi there. When you log in - what account name are you using?
  5. 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).
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  11. 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.
  13. Greetings! We'd like to open discussion about the latest changes to Kel'Thuzad. The changes we implemented has made the encounter the most Blizzlike KT boss fight in the Private Server community. However, he is significantly easier due to it being a 14 year old boss fight. We want to know how the raiders of Elysium feel about doubling his HP and seeing if that brings the fight a bit more challenge. Thanks for the input!

    It is likely an addon. Disable all addons and try again.

  17. Terms of Use Agreement Revised: 2018-10-16 This agreement sets forth the terms and conditions under which you are bound by when registering or connecting to any Elysium service. If you feel a player has violated this agreement, please report them with the corresponding system. I. Code of Conduct The guidelines and rules listed below explain what behaviour is expected of you and what behaviour you can expect from other users both in-game and on the forum. Note that the following guidelines are not exhaustive, and may not address all manner of offensive behaviour. While using any Elysium service, you will encounter a large number of users who share different experiences and come from different backgrounds. While certain language and images may not be offensive to you, consider the fact that the same language and images may have a completely different effect on someone else. All users on Elysium must adhere to these rules. Violations will lead to the corresponding sanction on the player's in-game or forum account. A. Naming policy When choosing a character name, creating a guild, or otherwise creating a label that can be seen by other users using the Game or the service, you must abide by the guidelines set forth here, as well as the rules of common decency. If Elysium staff finds such a label to be offensive or inappropriate, it may, in its sole and absolute discretion, change the name, remove the label and corresponding chat room, and/or suspend or terminate your use of the service. Guilds which violate the policy will be deleted with or without warning. You may not create a name or label related, referring, incorporates or utilizes any of the following: Religion, Politics, Organizations; Nationality, Racism, Ethnics; Harassment or Defamation; Obscenity, Vulgarity, Insults; Sexually explicit, Violence; Hateful, Drugs, Unlawful; Staff member or any staff oriented name; Incomprehensible. B. Interacting with players and staff Communicating in-game with other users and staff members, whether by text or any other method, is a fundamental element of the Game. The following rules are not intended to be exhaustive. Elysium staff may use their discretion to decide what may break these rules. When communicating with other users and staff, you may not: Communicate any unlawful, obscene, racist or any such language and/or imagery deemed inappropriate by Elysium staff. Circumvent the /ignore function to communicate with a user, regardless of circumstances. Disrupt any feature of the Game and/or any component thereof in a manner that is deemed negatively on other users, including but not limited to, sending junk mail, repeated unsolicited messages, sending advertisement and/or services for goods or services originating outside the Game. Participate in any action that, in the sole and absolute discretion of Elysium staff, results or may result in a player being "scammed" or defrauded out of currency or any other items the user has earned. Advertise or operate services in-game and/or on the forum which in the sole discretion of Elysium staff is considered a casino and/or gambling. Send chat messages that has in any way been modified to change the publicly shown color of the respective message. Impersonate any user, including without limitation any "game master" or any other Elysium staff member. Communicate, post and/or direct users to information regarding a user's or staff member's identity and/or personal information. Institute, assist, threaten, or become involved in an attack upon any Elysium service or any of its users in an attempt to disrupt the servers or experience of users. Lie to, or attempt to deceive Elysium staff. Use non-English language in public channels. C. Gameplay a ). Player vs Player The Elysium staff recognizes all play styles to be valid and a part of the game and not harassment. Killing players of your opposing faction, including camping players at spirit healers, corpses and/or gravestones, is considered a part of the game. While playing on a Player vs. Player server, you should always remember to protect yourself in zones where the members of a hostile faction can attack you. b ). Streaming Streaming on any service is allowed by Elysium, however, we encourage you to research the TOU of the streaming service you intend to use in order to protect your streaming account. c ). Safespotting Safespotting is prohibited under all circumstances. This is the act of engaging in PvP combat while exploiting a position that cannot be reached with basic jumping (no wall-climbing), or engaging enemy players while being in an advantageous position where guards cannot reach you due to pathing, line of sight, or any other game mechanic. d ). Certain behaviour goes beyond what is considered fair and are considered a violation of this agreement. This behaviour includes, but is not limited to, the following: Using or exploiting errors in design, features, and/or bugs to gain access that is otherwise not available, to facilitate and/or grant you an advantage over other players. Engaging players through various world terrain, such as roofs that is otherwise not accessible to gain an advantage. Intentionally not participating in a battleground. D. Griefing In an effort to maintain our commitment to a "Blizzlike" experience, the GM team will not get involved with player "griefing" disputes in game. The only exception to this rule is same-faction griefing, as determined by the GM Team. Example: You're farming mobs or killing a quest mob, and a mage of your same faction spam Polymorph's your mobs, causing you to be unable to kill it and complete your quest/farming. This is actionable by the GM team. The GM team will review each case of alleged "griefing" and make a determination on its effect on a players experience. However, players should have the freedom to play however they choose to, so long as no cheating/exploiting is taking place. Please keep in mind that World PVP is a part of the game, and the GM team will not become involved in any PVP related disputes. Certain world bosses have had their coding modified to prevent exploitation of their mechanics which allowed griefing in the past, however we have not modified the scripting or mechanics to a non-blizzlike experience. E. Forum Use Elysium can't allow all kinds of discussion on the forum. The forum is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss ideas, give game-play advice, role-play, and converse about any other aspect with other players. Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow users with respect, courtesy and common decency. Therefore, please be civilized when participating. Elysium staff need to be able to read everything you post to ensure it abides by this agreement. Posts not in English are subject to deletion. Elysium staff reserves the right to delete, move or edit any post with or without warning nor explanation to the user. In extreme cases, Elysium staff may limit or block the forum access from a user. II. Account Information Elysium staff will never ask for your account details or share any confidential information. For the safety of your account, never share any of your account information, such as email addresses, account names, or passwords. A. Account security The account owner is responsible for the security of the account and that it's sufficiently protected. Note that Elysium staff does not recover hacked accounts. You should: Never share your account information; Enable Two Factor Authentication (2FA); Have a unique and complicated password that does not exceed 16 characters; Connect yourself from a secure computer and network; Never download unsafe files that might contain viruses/malware; Never use the same credentials (username and password) on another server or service. B. Account sharing/trading You may not purchase, sell, gift, share, lend or trade any account or offer to purchase, sell, gift share, lend of trade any account. Any such attempt will result in immediate account closure. The only exception to this is a guild bank. To be considered a Guild Bank no character on any server can be above level 15. If a guild chooses to create a shared bank it is at their own risk. No action to investigate, recover or punish anyone for removing any item from a shared guild bank will be taken by the Elysium Project. Sharing a guild bank is at your own risk. C. Forgotten your password Click this link to reset your password. Please note that Elysium does not recover lost accounts. III. Character/Currency/Item restoration Elysium staff can't guarantee the recovery of any lost or deleted characters. We have a limited ability to restore deleted characters and will do so if possible but it is by no means 100%. Game items such as experience, gold or equipment that you have lost through accident, very rare failure of the server, or otherwise, cannot be restored. There are two exceptions to this: Unique quest items or keys can be restored with sufficient evidence that the player had previously obtained them. Raid items with the rarity of Epic and above can be restored in the case of a server crash/roll-back, providing an in-game ticket is sent to us which fulfills the conditions below. This INCLUDES Legendary quality items. a. Exact date of the raid; b. Video of complete encounter which also shows the raid ID, loot and complete list of raid members; c. Name of the player who received or should have received the item. Restoration of any item is always at the discretion of Elysium staff. Falsified information will lead to immediate account closure. IV. Misloots Elysium staff does not handle requests for reassignment of loot from one player to another when the item was accidentally awarded to the wrong player. Players are advised to exercise caution when choosing to roll on items and when master-looting. In cases where a misloot occurs due to a bug or system failure, Elysium staff may (at our sole discretion), resolve issues with proof (such as screenshots or video) that the item should have been awarded. V. Cheating/Unlawful Elysium staff may suspend or close any account if you violate, or assist others in violating, the sections set forth below. You agree that you will not, in whole or in part or under any circumstances, do the following: Use, offer, advertise and/or distribute the following or assist there in: Cheats; methods to influence and/or facilitate the game-play, including exploits of any existing in-game bugs, and thereby granting you and/or any other user an advantage. Bots; including, but not limited to, any code, hardware and/or software that allows the automated control of the Game, or any feature or component thereof. Hacks; accessing or altering the Game code, memory, packet data, software and/or any component or feature thereof, which changes and/or facilitates the game-play. Electronic attacks; methods to block/delay connections, impede bandwidth, fragment packets and/or application or any such attempt to disrupt any Elysium server, network and/or service, or any feature or component thereof. VI. Trading Virtual Goods/Services Elysium does not condone the trade of virtual goods or services appearing or originating from the Game, or any other attributes associated with an account or any component thereof for real money, or exchange those items, currencies or services for value outside of the Game. Elysium staff reserves the right to close any account involved in such transaction. VII. Multiboxing Multiboxing is not allowed and refers to playing multiple characters simultaneously. Whether this is done via 3rd party software, alt-tabbing between instances, or by running multiple machines, does not matter. The only exception is that you may have up to two characters in the same major or goblin city temporarily, for trading, crafting, conjuring, portalling or using the Neutral Auction House to transfer items/gold to an alt. VIII. Staff Assistance We do understand that a player who's contacting the Elysium staff might be upset over an issue they experienced within the Game. However, the use of vulgar, abusive or disrespectful language towards staff members is unnecessary, inappropriate and unproductive. Players who engage in this behaviour will be told to stop, if they continue, a sanction may be placed on the account. A staff member will never ask you to do anything that would compromise an account or its personal information. Elysium staff will make every attempt to show you the respect you deserve. We ask that you show us the same respect. We take no joy in placing sanctions on an account, but must do so in accordance with this agreement. A. In-game assistance You can access the in-game ticket system by clicking on the red question mark located to the right in the interface bar. Keep in mind that if a staff member is unable to reach you in-game or if the issue does not require further information, the staff member will respond with an in-game mail. Before using this feature: If your issue is related to a quest, abandon it and reacquire it; If you are experiencing any bugs, disable all add-ons and restart the game; Clean out the game cache by deleting the "WDB" folder within the Game directory; Speak with other players to see if they already faced the same problem and how they solved it. Requests that will not be processed which are not necessarily limited to, the following: Incomprehensible requests; Requests for items and/or currency; Ban requests for players and/or accounts; Information and/or help for a quest; Please use our public Bug Tracker for any bug reports so that the QA team can verify and reproduce the bug and forward it to the developers; Requests not related to the server where the ticket was created. B. Forum assistance Please direct all help request related questions to the support section on the forum. If you believe a user has violated this agreement, please report the user by clicking on their forum name and then clicking ‘Report this member’. C. Staff member interaction Time spent processing issues that has already been answered keeps the Elysium staff from addressing other users' pressing issues. If a single player repeatedly creates abusive or multiple tickets and/or reports regarding the same closed issue, or otherwise misuse the respective system, they will be asked to stop, and if ignored, they will receive a sanction on their account. Any attempt to bribe an Elysium staff member will result in an immediate sanction being placed on the account. IX. Sanctions Any sanctions or warnings previously set on an account are taken into consideration should the account be found in violation of the ToU. Throw-away accounts in violation of the rules are always permanently banned. Some sanctions can be applied without previous warning. This will depend on its seriousness. e.g. A player spamming any public channel should receive a warning. If the spam is found to be excessive the Game Master can decide to bypass the warning and give the player a temporary mute. A. Warning For minor infringements, a warning is first given to inform a player about the rules and warn him about future sanctions. Warnings remain in the player's record. Spam; AFK in BGs; Extensive killing of important quest NPCs; Player harassment; Racist or offensive sentiments; Using color changing scripts in-game; Abuse of assistance system (forum or in-game); Safespotting; Lack of respect towards the server or the staff members; Casino's; Multiboxing; Any attempt to bribe a staff member; Non-English language in public channels. B. Mute or temporary account interruption This sanction can last anywhere from 3 hours to 14 days, depending on severity, and is given for repeated violation of the rules, or for any of the following: Scamming; Lying to, or attempting to deceive Elysium staff; Abuse of in-game bugs; Organized killing for farming rank and/or honor; Griefing on World Bosses. Organized cross-faction collaboration. C. Permanent ban The most serious sanction. This sanction is applied in case of multiple violations of the rules, or after multiple account interruptions, as well as any of the following: COD Scamming; Hacking; Using any means of botting (e.g. a program); Any client modification (libraries, executables, MPQ, etc.); Revealing the identity of an Elysium staff member; Advertising for other private servers or gold selling websites; Selling/Buying player names; Exchanging accounts, gold, items, or any ingame services for another game's features; Selling/Buying accounts, gold, items, or any ingame services with real money; Possession of any item(s) or currencies obtained with illegal methods; Publishing software, methods or articles on cheating which can be applied on the server; Abuse of major in-game bugs; Staff impersonation. X. Stream Sniping & Meta-Gaming Harassment Harassment is a serious offence on Elysium, and can lead to account closure if the behaviour is not corrected. Stream Sniping is a form of harassment, and will not be tolerated if it is found to be occurring. We realize that there is a fine line between PVP and when it becomes excessive to the point of harassment. The GM team will determine whether a violation of the ToU has occured, and the players involved will receive a warning. If that warning is ignored, it will lead to further sanctions on your account. Stream Sniping has always been a difficult policy to enforce without breaking the PVP element of the game. However, it is becoming more and more consistent, and is having a negative impact on the player experience for those choosing to be content creators. Elysium reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to increase a sanction, suspend or terminate your use of the service at any time, for any reason or for no reason, with or without prior notice to you.
