It has been some time since we have had a news post, there is usually little need as most of our changes are discussed in Discord.
However, when it comes to official patches, and server direction, it is important to make sure everyone is well informed.
ToC took a lot less time than expected. We planned to release ICC early next year, however, with content progression advancing at a very fast rate, its important we keep NexusWoW fresh and exciting.
As a result, I would like to announce that the release of ICC will co-incide with the very beginning of 2018. Thats right, January first, 12AM 2018 will see the final "official" patch release for NexusWoW.
ICC will be released in both 10 and 25 man modes, along with heroic modes. Arena points and rating will be reset, along with honor points.
In order to help slow things down a bit and avoid burning through all the content at a supersonic rate, Hellscreams Warsong buff will be completely disabled along with the instances FoS, PoS and HoR.
These will be later released depending on progression difficulty.
Now what about after ICC you say? how are we going to keep things progressing?
several months (undecided) after the release of ICC, ICC will be drasticly overhaulled. Bosses will be much harder, and item drops will become vastly more powerful (respective of already aquired items). at the same time, we will see an overhaul to Burning Crusade content. This overhaul will consist of BC raid boss scaling modifications, item changes, reputation reworks, quest reward reworks, and the re-introduction of Shattrath as a main hub.
These changes will be rolled out in content releases, much like BC was originally released, with ICC always staying at the very top of the raid difficulty spectrum.
The aim of these changes is to keep NexusWoW a fun and fresh experience for us all, even after the "official" Wrath of the Lich King content has been exhausted.
These will be some massive changes, and they may not go quite down the path we would like them to. as a result, please consider this post as a "watch this space".
Thank you for reading.
