TBC Update & Restoring 2017 Characters!
First off, we'd like to thank the over 50 TBC testers for dedicating so much time to the testing and reporting of our TBC Closed Beta! You all have been phenomenal, and TBC would not be able to launch without your dedication.
We have some interesting news regarding TBC, and we'd like to get the communities input on Character Restorations.
The Burning Crusade Closed 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 a great amount of bug reports and feedback — and have since made some major changes.
TBC Beta v2 is now LIVE and is working phenomenally! If you were a level 70 on the original TBC Beta (previous revision), please message Rain on Discord to get your levels restored.
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 (Plenty of time planned for NH Naxx progression!)
October 2017 Character Restorations:
This is where we'd like your feedback. We are considering merging all previous Elysium PVP (October 2017 and before) character data into Nighthaven with strict stipulations. These stipulations would be:
- NO characters from realms that are not at the current patch (1.7) will be able to be transferred.
- Limits on the number of gold, materials and other items that could adversely affect Nighthaven economy.
- Nighthaven characters would retain all names and merged characters would be forced to rename.
We were originally planning on only restoring these characters for the TBC launch at the end of the year, however, with the demand - we're seriously consideringmerging them into Nighthaven ASAP.
Every day we see new players finding their way to Elysium — and every day we get more and more requests for pre-October character restorations. We would love to bring back some of those players. Please tell us what you think — and if you have any suggestions!
Thanks again Elysium!
