Will the dungeon finder be working? Will spell coefficients, Bosses' HP and Abilities be blizzlike?

The dungeon finder, if I recall correctly, was not implemented until 3.1 or 3.2. Which is when it will be added, though, it most definitely does work and works well. With all the bells and whistles.

The Bosses are scaled as they would have been on retail, as well as their abilities and HP being exact coefficients from the time. You'll find a very accurate raiding environment from all of the raids T7-10 & dungeons/heroics as well. Hard modes included, by the way.

 

Edit: It seems it went live with ToC in 3.3.0 That's when I'll enable it. :)

I just looked and apparently its 3.3.0. I wondered whether youd implement it earlier (since the client is 3.3.4 anyway) for the QoL it brings.

Will the levelling zones like ice crown be correctly scripted with the phasing and vehicle quests and whatnot? Thats usually a problem among most Wotlk servers.

Will toons from other expansions be able to transfer? If so will you be able to dupe the toon?

Are you gonna do it like an event with having people lvl to 70 Before wotlk comes live?

That's correct. We may enable it before hand.. but definitely not during the leveling process and early gearing stages.

Yes. Don't worry about vehicle combat being any issue.

Please focus on SWP first!

Don't worry, my friend. We have the next three bosses coming sometime this week or next. Depending on tests. They're ready for you.

Short answer: Maybe, maybe not. Two different bases, so it'd be a challenge.

Is there a planned gap between tier releases? If not, any guesses, or how will server be informed about them?

So, what I'm imagining in my head is what we'll try to do. Imagine this:

There will be a gap in between content due to the fact that once you kill the bosses, it's still not done. There are meta achievements, GDKP runs, mounts and titles to get alongside killing the bosses. This is something we haven't had before outside of a few outliers here and there. 

The idea is this: (and this is obviously not final, or guaranteed just a concept).

  • Release Tier 7 (VoA, Naxx, OS & EoE) two weeks after launch. The content is over once Sarth +3 has been done AND KT has been Killed on 25 man. This does NOT mean this is when the tier ends. We'll decide collectively when the tier is considered over. Then there will be an announcement that the next tier and PvP season will be coming.
  • Once we announce 3.1, which contains Ulduar and some other things including PvP Season 6 (Correct me if I am wrong). Which means Yogg + 0 will be the head honcho and the thing we consider the last element of the tier. 
  • 3.2
  • 3.3
  • 3.3.5 

You get the idea. Yes there will be content gaps. But not like you see on AA. This is more or less a gating of content so that it's met by its fullest potential and then, only then, will we release something else. Once it's exhausted and all there is to get is achieved.

How will you handle Deathknights? 

Level any char to 55 and switch to dk?

Yes. The DK starting experience is also very smooth and well polished. Once you hit 58 then you can leave the starting zone after having finished all of the quests and be on your way to Outland.

I just wanna thank you Zerix, the work you guys have done on Feenix is amazing with this server release AND the next 3 SWP bosses coming! The last few months have been amazing on Archangel from the point of view of someone who has been playing here for a long time. 

And to top it all off, the timely reponses to questions is just the icing on the cake. I just hope you guys on the Feenix team contiue to be more "transparent" and responsive to the community!

We lav ya guys <3

Good question. We're discussing multiple options for rates, which we have not finalized. If that's a popular request, we'll consider it even further.
