We've finally decided that the character name database won't be shared for both realms. You will be able to choose a nickname which is already taken on Feronis without any problems.

Some time ago we've promised to make events with increased Experience Rate - and promises should be kept. We have to change the form and length of this event, because as you can see: the population is very high and we don't want the players to wait in queues.

So!

Experience Boost x3 (not x4, because it might look unfair for some people: everybody gets the same Experience Rate without supporting the project). 
The event will be enabled from Friday, 15:00 GMT+1 (Realm Time) to Saturday, 15:00 Realm Time. 
Time and date have been set up like this just not to surpass 5400 Players Online: the online cap that we don't want to increase.

We are aware that not everyone can support the project and it's not a problem. We'll try to make events such like this in the future, if the player count allows us to.

Hello, Sunwell! Let's talk about Mining and Herbalism - we have applied some changes.

First of all, you've probably noticed the overwhelming amount of mining & herbalism nodes in both Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor. It was caused by node grouping: some mining veins or herbs were not connected to a group, some groups were spawning simultaneously with randomized spawns. Result? Too many veins, too many herbs. Sometimes there were even 3 mining veins spawned on top of each other. We know many of you loved that but this wasn't intentional.

We've heard your voice and we have fixed this issue, once and for all. We have applied many corrections to node grouping and spawns. Both Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor have all the nodes corrected and the spawning works as intended. You should no longer discover nodes spawned on top of each other. What about Outland and Northrend? Outland nodes were alright and didn't require our attention. On the other hand, we have slightly reduced amount of spawned Saronite Veins in Storm Peaks (Northrend).

Have a nice day!

Hello! You are asking us whether we will organize a 3v3 tournament at the end of the season. The answer is simple, yes!

We have already found one person who accepted our offer, but to make the whole tournament better received, we need one more person. Our main requirements are fluent use of English and a lot of knowledge about PvP. Arena Spectator allows you to watch the arenas of almost all players (command .sp sp nick), so please send a few minute recording with your commentary to the arena. Recordings sent directly to the Shatter on Discord, or in a private message in the forum. We will take care of the entire organization, your only task will be to comment. After the tournament, the commentators will be awarded 2000 Sunwell Coins.

More information about tournament will be announced a month before the season finishes.

We are pleased to announce that we are planing 2 days of free exp boost x3 in the next weekend. Ulduar is coming soon, so we suppose that a lot of people want to reach 80 lvl before releasing this fabulous raid. Announcements concerning exp boost event will be published on Reddit and Facebook(also as a paid ads). Feel free to inform your friends about our event as well!  6k players simultaneously online after releasing Ulduar? Would be great and we believe that we'll do it together!

In the last month, Sunwell was attacked by bots that were connecting from Japan and Chinese VPNs. The bots used brute-force (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brute-force_attack) to crack player's passwords. Last night we've made a login restriction that will not affect you, but will definitely make brute-force impossible - but it doesn't mean that your accounts are 100% secure.

We have talked to the players that were victims of account hacking. It turned out that most of them had accounts with the same credentials on servers such as Warmane and Light's Hope. In order to perform a brute-force attack, the attackers need to have player logins - and people responsible for these attacks definitely had a username database.

We don't want to throw accusations at the servers I've mentioned as we don't have 100% proof, but we ask the players that played on Warmane & Light's Hope to change their passwords immediately and to protect their accounts via Two-Factor Authentication (the option can be found in Settings on Sunwell.pl). This is the only option that will protect your accounts with 100% success rate.

Yesterday, we've tracked the gold and mats stolen from the accounts. They're being sent to characters owned by websites that sell gold. Gold, that they have stolen from other players. By buying gold, you're one of the causes that somebody loses his time, his character. You're supporting thieves. You should know that.

Two-Factor Authentication will be enhanced soon. You can also use IP Lock option that was introduced yesterday. Safety of your accounts is our number one priority, that's why we're going to work hard to eliminate all possible threats.

Faction change will be enabled on the first May Sunday(6.05.2018 at 20:00-20:30 Realm Time). Players demand this service for a long time, but faction change isn't healthy thing for the server balance at all and that's why changefaction will be enabled only for 30 minutes. So you will be able to do it, but we cannot let you massively change your faction, therefore the price of this service will be high and we hope that ONLY people who have the really big need of change will buy it. We'll let you know on Saturday if transfers are enabled in both ways or only in the one way - for instance from the Horde to the Alliance.

Good evening, dear players!

Time for a small update, as the list of topics we'd like to talk about gets only bigger and bigger. We want everything to be clear.

  1. Pet Movement System - the system is present for a week and counting, but we hear your concerns and we know that not everything is working perfectly as it should. That's why we've analyzed weak spots of the system and tomorrow you might expect an update to make pet movement system working as intended. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

  2. Angrathar has received a better (in the context of our emulator) machine. The limits of the new hardware/software configuration are yet to be seen, however with yesterday's 4500 online players the diff was 45 on average!

  3. After optimizing the pet movement system, Lukaasm will perform further optimizations in order to increase the performance of the emulator. We want to optimize the Auction House and aura system. That will allow us to increase the visibility range even further. We aim to finish it by the end of May.

  4. Yesterday I wrote a statement as a response to discontent of some of our players regarding Ulduar release date. We hear your voice, your opinion matters to us; we've decided to settle on some changes. We cannot change Ulduar launch date, however we can extend the raid week. American community is just as important as European community, that's why it's very important that they have enough time to raid Ulduar on the first week to be able to compete with European guilds.

In order to level the playing field and give the American guilds comfortable return after 28th May holiday, we've extended the raid week.

Changes: The first week of Ulduar: 23th May - 1st June; Second week of Ulduar: 1st June - 7th June; Third week of Ulduar (we're going back to the usual lockout resets - Wednesday): 7th June - 13th June; Fourth week of Ulduar: 13th June - 20th June.

We hope that our North American players will welcome that change. That's all we can do regarding that matter. We are going to add an auto broadcast announcement in the game to tell all the players about it.

  1. You can drop your exclamation marks as Malygos bug has been fixed and the patch is live on Angrathar. We're sorry that it took so long, but sometimes there are bugs that are very hard to diagnose and fix. We've finally managed to do that, though.

Have a nice day!

Dear players!

I'd like to remind you about changes in raid IDs duration due to launch of Ulduar and share information about Emalon (2nd boss in Vault of Archavon) release :

1st ID : 23th May - 1st June  - Ulduar released 26th May

2nd ID : 1st June - 7th June  -  on this ID Emalon will be released in both 10man and 25man VoA (this way nobody will start ulduar with T8 set items just because they got "lucky")

3nd ID : 7th June - 13th June  - and we're back at our normal "raid reset" day

We would like to encourage all of you to watch the last description video concerning Ulduar!

Furthermore, we have something that we promised to create for the community before releasing Ulduar. We modifed DBM and now it's completely compatible to our Ulduar version.

Honor, stone keeper's shards as well as arena points will be reset on Saturday's morning. After restarting the server we'll add the new NPCs, so the official beginning of Furious season will take place on Saturday's morning as well. 

Ulduar will be released on the same day at 19:00 - as we announced many times.

 1 - Tomorrow (3.07.2018) between 8:30 - 9:15 AM Angrathar(including website) will be offline due to changing the location of the servers. As I mentioned before, Angrathar will be based in Germany. Ping for NA players should be a bit lower: ~10-20ms.

2 - I hear your voices and requests concerning the exp boost event. So, the x3 Experience Boost event will start on Saturday (7.07) at 13:00 Realm Time and will last to Sunday (8.07) 23:59. So, you will get 35 hours of free exp boost x3! Have a nice evening!

3 - Transmogs system will be released on Friday morning. Have fun with collecting the gear. Join our Facebook profile - https://www.facebook.com/SunwellProject/ We will organize many transmogs contests soon!
