As you know we switched and merged our core with "VMaNGOS" (continued Nostalrius core) back in July 2018.
Right now, we've pulled all fixes from past 4 years from the VMaNGOS core and merged them with our core.
What's changed?: You may expect lots of bug fixes and possibly new bugs/crashes in the beginning until we fix them.
What about raids/custom content?: Raids/custom content will be almost the same but you'll see some mobs have more spells now.
Battlegrounds: We've decided to keep Alterac Valley blizzlike instead of the current "boosted" version. NPC stats (HP and damage) will be blizzlike and not boosted as it is on live.
Once you login with a old character, you'll see that the appearance of your character has been changed.
This is because of the new character db structure. It will use the stock values for older characters.
We've made the Barber & Appearance NPC temporarily free, so you can update your appearance if you wish.
The PTR (Public Test Realm) is now available for testing. (Last imported Character DB December 2022)
Once you login for the first time with an older character, you'll see that some items are missing. The missing items will be sent automatically to your mailbox.
The BugTracker has been cleared and is ready for new reports. https://github.com/RetroWoW/RetroWoW/issues
Once we confirm everything is stable, we'll push it live.
Thank you for your assistance during the test phase.
