Legion
The Emerald Nightmare

The Emerald Nightmare is the first raid on Legion, originally created by the Titans. The Emerald Dream served as a model for shaping Azeroth. For a long time, it was luxuriant and immaculate reflection; An original image of nature as if it existed before the arrival of so-called civilization. For many years, Druids and Guardians were observing the manifestations of disturbing presence in the Dream.

Under the influence of the Legion and the Nightmare Lord Xavius, this rampant corruption is now emerging and will soon swallow up all of Azeroth unless it is eradicated at the source. The Emerald Nightmare is teeming with branches and gates that with plunge you even deeper into the madness that reigns on the premises.

On Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017 at 5:00 PM (server time), http://www.wowhead.com/zone=8026 will be available on our Legion expansion. This raid will be available in Normal mode and LFR mode. The following bosses will be available at the release;

http://www.wowhead.com/npc=100497 http://www.wowhead.com/npc=102672 http://www.wowhead.com/npc=102679 http://www.wowhead.com/npc=103769 http://www.wowhead.com/npc=105393 http://www.wowhead.com/npc=106087 http://www.wowhead.com/npc=104636

Legion
Development Blog 6

Here is a development blog where you can find all the work we have started and are upcoming to all of our expansions. In order not to disappoint most of you, we will not give you precise dates but estimates.

 Wrath of The Lich King and Cataclysm: Next week we will launch an update on the two expansions with the latest fixes from our partners at WowCircle. Updates will be posted at the time the update is available. These patches correspond to about five to six months of work. For example, on Cataclysm the MMR was reviewed and fixed.   Mists of Pandaria: We have recruited a new developer who is assigned full-time on this expansion. He has already begun to work on spell corrections and the end of Siege of Orgrimmar raid normal.  The work has already begun on Siege of Orgrimmar and should arrive within one to two weeks with several fixes on the previous bosses. When the normal version is fully out, this developer will continue on the heroic version.   Warlords of Draenor: Unfortunately, a lot of delays have taken a part of the development of Hellfire Citadel due to the particular work that we provide on Legion. We apologize for the delay and commit ourselves to release it by the end of the month. The first test wing is available on our Gul'dan realm (including Siegemasater Mar'tak, and Kormrok).   Legion: We are developing two content updates. The first one as we mentioned, we're working on the development of Emerald Nightmare. The raid will be available in full normal and LFR.  We are currently in the initial testing stage and should be out in the next coming weeks. Now to address the upcoming patch 7.1.5. We decided to spend time mainly on this patch in order to balance the classes and to have the latest patches for our players. In addition to the future content: Return to Karazhan, Trial of Valor, The Nighthold and the new rewards system in battlegrounds. This will allow us to stay on this expansion longer, save resources by having no other patches to develop, and while having large mass content to provide to you.  Many tests have been carried out on this new version, we no longer notice any critical bugs, although we don't have the Sylvanas population on it.  We will launch the first arena season one to two weeks after the release of 7.1.5, which will allow us to correct the last bugs that we didn't have during our tests. This arena season will be a pre-season, you will have everything from a real arena season, except things will be lowered in terms of iLvl and rewards. The decision is motivated by the fact we want classes well balanced and fixed to start Legion Season 1. We would like to point out that 7.1.5 is the reason for a smaller number of spell corrections on Sylvanas in our recent weeks, where as many spells have already been corrected, rather than continuing on version 7.0.3 that we will soon abandon.

Tournament merge conditions

We have planned to merge Tournament with Gul'dan. However, we have received numerous of feedback on what should be in the conditions of the transfer. The administrators have discussed this and we have come to the conclusion on the conditions to transfer:

Every character with less than 1 day of playtime (from this announcement) will be wiped. Professions will be removed upon transfer. Gold will be removed upon transfer. Tournament specific mounts will be removed upon transfer.

Those who bought items from the shop etc. will still have their items. There is no limit on how many characters you can transfer, however they must have more than one day of play time. Please post your feedback and concerns on this thread. There is no set in stone date, when we have the date we'll let you guys know.

We're hiring developers!

We are hiring developers (yes, paid) to expand our WoD and Legion development teams. 

We are looking for the following profiles: 

- Developer core (C ) either to script PvE content (raid and dungeon) or to make correction on class problems (spells, talents, artefacts, item effects ... etc) 

- Developer DB (SmartAI) to script zones, quests, scenarios, instances ... etc. 

You need to know C (or SQL / SmartAI) and have already worked with TrinityCore. We are only looking for developers with experience on the WoW / TrinityCore environment able to provide quality work. 

We will not respond to wacky candidates, people wishing to learn or developers who have no experience with TrinityCore. 

If you are interested and you meet the requirements, please send an email to recrutement@firestorm-servers.com with you can do and what you have already done.

Legion
Development Blog 5

Here is the new development blog about the work being done on Legion and what's planned in the next coming weeks.

http://wowhead.com/zone=7546 should be available in Normal and Heroic either this weekend or next weekend. This will bring the number of dungeons currently available to Legion at 5. The dungeons that are currently available are http://wowhead.com/zone=8040, http://wowhead.com/zone=7673, http://wowhead.com/zone=7996, http://wowhead.com/zone=7812, and http://wowhead.com/zone=7546 . Which means that these will open in mythical mode by the end of the month if everything goes well.

Many of you ask for news about World Quests in http://wowhead.com/zone=7334, they should be available in the next one to two weeks.  As for the World Bosses in Azsuna and Val'Sharah,  we would need World Quests developed first.

Professions such as mining, herbalism, etc. should be put in place next week. We're still working on the development of professions and we cannot give a precise date.

The first Arena Season, we want all talents from Player vs. Player to be functional before we start the arena season. We plan to launch the first arena season with the release of the first boss of the Legion Raid.
