UPDATE 11.09.2017: Further details regarding the Naxxramas release

Naxxramas will open at 17:00 CEST (server time), Saturday, September the 16th. All wings are available right away. For the AQ release, it was attempted to adjust some base stats of creatures in order to make the difficulity of the instance more in line with what it would have been when it was originally released by Blizzard. It is undeniable that class mechanic changes over the course of vanilla had a large impact on raid difficulty, and while the initial tuning of certain parts of AQ was not perfect, some middle ground in terms of stats tuning is likely to make up for some changes made between patch 1.9 and 1.12.

Naxxramas was tuned for, more or less, the same mechanics as we are playing with today. This means we do not need to take the same tuning considerations we did for AQ. At the same time, no one expects a 2006 tuned Naxxramas to last very long for the best guilds. It has been an active discussion, both amongst the community and the staff, there should be any modifications to make the race for the first Naxxramas clear last a little longer. In the end, we believe we have found a good middle ground which will not alienate guilds that would have been able to clear the content with no modifications, while at the same time making the progression slightly more interesting for the most hardcore.

Naxxramas will be released with no custom damage, health, armor, or resistance tuning. The first 2 weeks (until September 27th), no world buffs or soulstones from non-raidmembers will be usable while inside naxxramas. Once entering the instance portal, world buffs and soulstones will be removed. All other regular player buffs and consumables will not be touched, and soulstones placed on players by raidmembers while inside of Naxxramas will not be affected. This feature is, as mentioned, temporary, but should provide the best guilds with a more interesting challenge, as has been a wish from many players. At the same time, we stay true to the original tuning of the encounters.

To clarify exactly what will be removed when entering Naxxramas:

Any soulstones
Rallying cry
Warchief’s Blessing
Spirit of Zandalar
Elune’s Blessing
Songflower Serenade
Mol’dar’s Moxie
Slip’kik’s Savvy
Fengus’ Ferocity
Soul Revival
DMF buffs
Paladin blessing (for Horde players)

Legion is here! sort of.

Have you ever wanted to play TBC with Legion NPC models?
Today is the day! Thanks to BambyTube we can!

Is wowme required?

Apparently a version with many mounts and other things is in the works but requires WoWMe to operate.
This version doesn’t require WoWMe.

Is it bannable?

Check with your local server if it’s a bannable offense.
I definitely had fun playing with it on Outland/Warmane but your mileage may vary.

Installation Instructions

  • Download the MPQ file here
  • Copy the file into the Data folder. (c:\wow\Data for me)
  • Login and enjoy, it’s that easy!

What is Super Mario 64 Online?

SM64 Online is a project by Kaze Emanuar, Melonspeedruns and Marshivolt. Built atop a Super Mario 64 ROM which lets people connect online, choose a character from the Mushroom Kingdom and play the game however they want. You can do traditional stuff like just clearing stages, you can have speedrun races or even just build a giant battle royale!

The official website for SM64 online is sm64o.com

With all things similar to private servers, the fear is that copyright strikes are on the way. This online version of the game is built off a Super Mario 64 ROM and the team behind it previously got hit with a DMCA takedown from Nintendo. The original launch video has already been taken down via DMCA from Youtube but for now, this is an awesome addition to a classic!
