Legion : Court of Stars!

Even as Legion troops patrol the streets, casting a pall over the grand city of Suramar, the socialites of the Nightborne nobility continue to cling to custom and routine. On this clear night, the cry of revelers echoes through the chill air, as the largest mansion in the Noble District opens its doors for a grand gala. Rumor has it that Grand Magistrix Elisande herself may be making an appearance, in an effort to reassure several of her closest allies despite recent turmoil.

https://www.wowhead.com/npc=104215: Captain of the Duskwatch, Gerdo has devoted his life to keeping the peace within the walls of Suramar. Though he has a growing unease since the arrival of the Legion, he remains faithful and loyal to the leadership of Suramar. Elisande has safeguarded them for generations, and she knows what is best for the people of the city. Tonight, Gerdo's task is to ensure that only citizens with the proper credentials are able to enter a gathering of particular importance at the manor. https://www.wowhead.com/npc=104217: A sadistic eredar sorcerer, even as she understands the importance of the nightborne to her master's plans, Talixae chafes at the indignity of standing guard over a building full of elves. Nevertheless, she and her lieutenants remain vigilant, and while they live, no intruders will disrupt the gathering. https://wowhead.com/npc=101831: First Blade of the Grand Magistrix, Melandrus rarely leaves Elisande's side. He has eschewed the magical arts, instead harnessing the power of the Nightwell to heighten his reflexes and his movements to inhuman levels.

Tomb of Sargeras (Mythic)
Information • Full Mythic mode release • Item level cap upgraded to 955

Hello everyone

We are pleased to announce the full release of Tomb of Sargeras in mythic difficulty on  Wednesday, 12 September 2018 at 18:00 (CET) on Sylvanas and item level cap will be increased to 955.

We know most of our community do not do this content due to its difficulty. But for us, it's important to have as much content out as possible. Especially end game content such as a Mythic raid! This instance is truly a challenge both for you but also to our developers so if you find any issue while progressing through please report it here!

 

Also this is the final release of 7.2.5 content and as we already previously talked about, Argus release should be here within a month! Yes we just said a month!

What can you expect? Well here's what we got so far:

Full quest line (yes full, you can complete it on day one) Seat of the Triumvirate (Heroic and Mythic/Mythic ready) World Quests Invasion points (Greater invasion points included) Antorus (1st wing release within 2 weeks after initial release)

Are you prepared? Good luck champions

Server Migrations

Hello everyone,

One of the most questions we receive from players and other players coming to Firestorm is if they're able to transfer their characters from other communities to here. We heard you, and we're glad to say we will be allowing server migrations from other servers. Below you can find the information about server migrations;

Server Migration - Eligibility List: Any server between 7.0.x or 7.2.x.   Server Migration Information: Enter your username and password on that service (Note: You can temporarily change your credentials on that service until the transfer is completed and then revert it back to your old stuff). The characters that you wish to transfer will not have anything affected to them, everything will remain intact. Fill in the form and evidence that is requested on the page (such as: server name, character name, race, class, etc). Two characters can only be transferred to Firestorm.   Server Migration Conditions - Transferable: Gold will be capped at 20,000 per character. Legendary Items. Items that are bound to the character and in bags will be transferred. All reputations will be transferred. All professions will be transferred.   Server Migration Conditions - Non-Transferable: Achievements. Titles. Honor Levels or Prestige. Mounts that are in the shop or not obtainable in-game. Artifact Level, Artifact Power and Artifact Relics.

However, with us providing server migrations you must provide us the information above and fill a small form in. Once your form is filled in, it will be processed and your character will be transferred from that character to our realms and your account.

Re-balancing the Arena Rankings

For several months, there have been several spells that gave advantages over the other ones and resulted in many players having high ranking by abusing it. After we had updated to 7.3.5, the classes were not well balanced but we worked day after day until today (Click here to view Changes). We would like to thank the Quality Assurance Team (PvP) and you for your bug report on these issues. We're going to re-balance the two rankings with the following the changes;

The 2v2 & 3v3 ladder will be reset and have a cap of 1800. A team with more than 400 rating over another will not win any points by beating them, however will receive the usual end-of-arena rewards. We will distribute 100 Firestorm Points for players affected by resetting the rating to 1800 in 3v3 as compensation. A decay system will arrive as of Monday, August 13th, 2018 and this will help with cleaning the ladder. You will need to at least do a minimum of 5 matches per week to not be affected by the decay system. If you have the decay on your character, you must do 5 matches to have the penalty removed from your character. 1 week without completing 5 arena matches: -25 rating. 2 weeks without completing 5 arena matches: -50 rating. 3 weeks without completing 5 arena matches: -75 rating. 4 weeks without completing 5 arena matches: -100 rating.

The end of the arena season will be decided around the end of September, there is no specific date set in stone but we'll announce it before it happens.

Tomb of Sargeras - Last Wing
Information • Last Wing (Available) • Loot and Achievements will be available. • Modes: Normal and Heroic (Mythic Mode will be available within a few weeks).

Aegwynn used this sacred temple of Elune to lock away the defeated Sargeras’ avatar. She hoped it would remain dormant, buried deep within the earth, but the lure of power has continued to draw foul entities to this site. When Gul’dan reentered the tomb, he tore down Aegwynn’s wards and opened a doorway for the Legion to invade. Now the fel army tears at the vault, hoping to reclaim their master’s power.

Champions, gather your strength! Take your guild members or friends and its time to put an end to the Legion Invasion! You will be able to find the last four bosses available within this last wing;

http://wowhead.com/npc=118460 Once, this was a sacred burial site for the Night Elves, but the Legion has twisted these grounds with the Engine of Souls. This foul machine draws upon the energy of the dead, twisting them into abominations. Due to this corruption, these tormented spirits have become monstrosities, looking to feed on any who descend into the tomb's depths. http://wowhead.com/npc=118289 Charged by Aegwynn to defend the Tomb of Sargeras, the Maiden of Vigilance has stood watch for hundreds of years. Yet, the guardian did not forsee what effect the avatar's seeping fel energy would have on this titan construct. Slowly warped by this maleficence, the Maiden now seeks to destroy any in her path. http://wowhead.com/npc=120436 When Aegwynn defeated the Avatar of Sargeras, she was unable to destroy his avatar. In an effort to seal it away, the armor was entombed beneath the Temple of Elune, where it remained dormant for hundreds of years. Now, with the Legion tearing down the tomb's barriers, Kil'jaeden is in a position to reanimate the armor and unleash its power on Azeroth. http://wowhead.com/npc=117269 Since striking the bargain that chased the draenei into the stars, Kil'jaeden believed the Legion could not be stopped. Yet, none of his deceptions have prevented you from reaching this critical moment. Infuriated that Sargeras' promise of victory has never come to pass, the demon lord prepares to face you himself, for a final battle that will shape Azeroth's destiny forever.

You can take part in this raid on Wednesday, August 1st, 2018 at 18:00 (server time). If you encounter a bug or any issue with the raid, let us know by leaving the information here.

The following changes will be made with the addition of the last four bosses:

The maximum item level cap will stay to 940 until we do release Mythic Mode, then it's gonna be 955. Legendary Items will now be 970 when picked up. If you already have legendary items, there is a quest available "http://wowhead.com/quest=49473" in which you can upgrade your legendary item.

Development Blog — July 2018

Hello everyone,

It’s been a while since we’ve done one of these “development blogs” and given you guys an insight on what’s next for Firestorm. We would like to share the current development status, and what our plans are for Firestorm over the next quarter.

Update Flow: We’ve been working hard to improve the flow of updates you guys receive on the realms. With this recent change in the workflow, you will receive content faster, better and quality updates to classes. We now have at least two updates per week to apply the changes. These updates will happen every Monday and Thursday before noon.   Team Improvements:

Alongside the development team improvements, we’ve also improved the Quality Assurance Team. We now have four teams working with each other in order to improve the quality on Firestorm! You have the following now; Class Masters General Quality Assurance Player vs. Environment Quality Assurance Player vs. Player Quality Assurance.

You can contact and see these members on the forums and Discord with the tag, and quality assurance rank.   Game Points Partnership: We're proud to announce our partnership with Game Points. Game Points is a service that allows the players to buy codes that you can redeem for getting points on several pages. After buying one, you can send the code to your friend and they'll receive the points or redeem the code yourself. Game Points and PayPal are available. Read more at here.   Live Changelog: Rest assure, you can stop asking when you will receive the next change log with this latest feature that has been worked on. No more looking for change log, change log when and tag a specific person, where is the change log! You will be able to browse the change log yourself via the website, you can check out the fixes that were applied and insight to the issue that was specifically fixed. We plan to upgrade the Firestorm Addon to display the latest changes when you log in. We’d love to hear your feedback on this feature, please don’t hesitate to give us feedback!

http://www.wowhead.com/zone=8524:

The current four bosses are waiting to be released; we plan to have them on the live realms in the third quarter. Here is a brief status of each boss.

http://wowhead.com/npc=119072

Final testing period.

http://wowhead.com/npc=118289

http://wowhead.com/npc=120436

Testing period (#1).

http://wowhead.com/npc=117269

Argus:

The Campaign:

The campaign is currently in testing phase, and our Quality Assurance Team has given us good feedback on it, so far! This new adventure will be after the release of Kil’jaeden. You can read more about the campaign here: http://www.wowhead.com/comprehensive-argus-guide.

World Quests

The world quests are currently in testing phase, similar to the Campaign. It’s expected to be available with the release of the Campaign.

http://www.wowhead.com/zone=8910:

This is currently in development phase; http://www.wowhead.com/npc=122316 is finished and will enter testing phase. We'll try to release it along with Argus campaign and world quests of this zone to deliver the best experience possible since they are linked to each other.

http://www.wowhead.com/zone=8638:

Antorus scripting will start when Tomb of Sargeras is fully released. You can expect the first bosses to be released between mid August 2018 and the start of September 2018.

Why: Since the announcement of Battle for Azeroth, we’ve spoken a lot internally about this expansion. We have decided to implement this new expansion to the project. As you read before our team has worked on Legion to release all this content this expansion. We don’t want to reproduce the same issues that we encountered during the transition between Warlords of Draenor and Legion.   When: We have started to work on this and it’s in early stage of development, it’s currently under beta testing on retail and systems change on every update. The development team cannot start working on new spells until the release on August 14th, 2018.   What about the other expansions, will they be abandoned?: No, to answer your question! We don’t want to reproduce issues that we encountered with Warlords of Draenor. The current developer (Zhelyazkov) will be active for Mists of Pandaria and a new database developer will be hired to improve the scripting quality.  As for Cataclysm and Wrath of the Lich King, the development team at WoWCircle will continue to provide updates for those servers.
