Hello there:

This new feature is a product of this post.

We will explain step by step how to use the new Instant 70 feature. There are two different options which will be explained in detail.

The first one will be: Instant 70 with some starting gear and 900 gold – 12 Donation Points.

First of all, you need to have one character created in your Dalaran-WoW account which has to be lower than level 70. (If you want to use this feature with one Death Knight, your character has to be level 59 or higher and lower than 70).

ss1.jpg

You will have to enter to the world and log out to continue with this steps.

ss2.jpg

After that, you have to go to your website's Account Pannel.

step1.png

Scroll down a bit and you will see at the character services tab one option called: Instant level 70.

step2.png

When you click there, you will see the Instant 70 feature menu. Here you have to:

1) Select the character you want to level up to 70.
2) Select the option: "Only instant 70".
3) Be sure you have the required Donation Points (12 DP) (they are shown as gold coins at the Top menu).
4) Press the buttom: "Next step".

step3.png

In this step you will have to choose your initial gear set. As you can see on the following example, the class of the character Malkavia is Warlock, so we will select: Cloth (Spell Power).

You can select the material of your initial set but be consequent with the stats written in brackets. For example: all the leather gear will based on Agility as main stat, the mail gear will be based on Agility as main stat, and the plate gear will be based on Strength as main stat. So, lets say one Elemental Shaman wants to have Spell power gear; then he can't select "MAIL (Agility)", he must select "CLOTH (Spell Power)".

step4.png

Once you have choosen it, an alert message will appear in order to confirm your decision, so be sure you are selecting the correct character and gear's material.

step4_5.png

If all the information is correct, then you will have to click on "Yes" to continue or "No" to change something.

step5.png

Once you have finished this steps, you can log in game again, and you will notice some changes:

1) The level of your character will be 70.
2) Your character will be located at the capital city of your faction (Orgrimmar for Horde and Stormwind for Alliance).

ss3.jpg

Your character will be inside the main Inn, and you will have some mail notification:

ss4.jpg

If you go to the nearest mailbox, you will be able to get your initial gear and your starting gold.

ss5.jpg

You will have two messages from the Customer Support, take both to start your journey with us in Dalaran-WoW.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The second option you have, is Instant 70 + 2 Heirloom Items + Tome of the Cold Weather Flight. - 23 Donation Points.

This option will also contain the same starting gear set and the 900 golds.

First of all, you need to have one character created in your Dalaran-WoW account wich has to be lower than level 70. (If you want to use this feature with one Death Knight, your character has to be level 59 or higher and lower than 70).

ss1.jpg

You will have to enter on the world and log out to continue with the steps.

ss2.jpg

After that, you have to go to your website's Account Pannel.

step1.png

Scroll down a bit and you will see at the character services tab one option called: Instant level 70.

step2.png

When you click there, you will see the Instant 70 feature menu. Here you have to:

1) Select the character you want to level up to 70
2) Select the option: "Instant 70 + 2 Heirloom Items + Tome of the Cold Weather Flight"
3) Be sure you have the required Donation Points (23 DP) (they are shown as gold coins at the Top menu).
4) Press the buttom: "Next step"

step6.png

In this step you will have to choose your initial gear set. As you can see on the following example, the class of the character Malkavia is Warlock, so we will select: Cloth (Spell Power).

You can select the material of your initial set but be consequent with the stats written in brackets. For example: all the leather gear will based on Agility as main stat, the mail gear will be based on Agility as main stat, and the plate gear will be based on Strength as main stat. So, lets say one Elemental Shaman wants to have Spell power gear; then he can't select "MAIL (Agility)", he must select "CLOTH (Spell Power)".

step7.png

Now you will be able to select the Heirloom Shoulders. You can see a tooltip of each item before select it, this way you can always be sure that you are choosing the correct one.

step8.png

After you have selected the shoulders, you will have to repeat the previous step with the Chest.

step9.png

Once you have choosen it, an alert message will appear in order to confirm your decision, so be sure you are selecting the correct character, gear's material and Heirlooms. (The Tome of Cold Weather Flight is included by default).

step10.png
step11.png
step12.png
step13.png

Once you have finished this steps, you can log in game again, and you will notice some changes:

1) The level of your character will be 70.
2) Your character will be located at the capital city of your faction (Orgrimmar for Horde and Stormwind for Alliance).

ss3.jpg

Your character will be inside the main Inn, and you will have some mail notification:

You will have three messages from the Customer Support, take them to start your journey with us in Dalaran-WoW.

Hello there, I was very happy about the insta 70 feature but now i see i have to donate atleast 20€ and thats a bit too much for me, so i was wondering if you could atleast lower the price to 10 dp or give the people that donate 10€ just 2 more points just for this (short?) time until we get SoR.
Edit: Or you could even put a new donation price like 12€ for 12 dp so more people would buy dp

Thank you

Regards

Feels a little bit frustrating we have to pay 20 Euro's, I think 10-12 Euro's would have been fair or to make it cost only 10 DP. Or even another option, 10 DP and 20 VP? I would also like to add, how lots of other private servers have there price quite a bit lower then the current set and we need to attract new players like you said, so it should be more lower :D

I can only agree that 12DP is a really strange decision and many will be put off by it when they realize that means a larger donation. Wouldnt it be better to have many people give x10 instead of a handful of x20 ?

I think the reason for these prices is to avoid everybody to bennefit from the feature.
What I mean, almost everybody here could spend 10 euros for this feature. But if that happends the of number people who will skip 1-70 leveling will increase drastically and the other people who won't donate for this will be left to leveling alone, then low level rdfs will be even more rare, and the whole leveling atmosphere of the server is going to be ruined, because there won't be so much people who will level 1-70 (like one privete server we all know, who ruined their leveling atmosphere with simmilar feature) so they will just pay 10 euros and will skip 1-70, where is the blizzlike in that? Don't we all came here to play in blizzlike server and to refeel once more the atmosphere which blizzard provided in WoTLK. Remember, the staff said it at beginning , this will be the most blizzlike server, Blizard don't have leveling boost feature (only SoR , but there the things stands in a different way.)
So now only the laziest people will bennefit from this feature. The rest of us will level normal way.
Gratz Dalaran-WoW , I think you made the right decision.

I don't know if I am the laziest of people but I gave it a try on a secondary char to unlock DK. I have but one complaint: the gear you get. Why don't you get a full set? I didn't even get a weapon for my DK, luckily he's got a ilvl 70 sword from the DK starting chain, but I can't imagine a Warrior trying to kill something in Northend with a lvl 1 starter sword. Also, some basic jewellery would be nice.

Otherwise than that it works ok and let's hope it will attract more people to the server!

Cheers

I stated my opinion on the matter few times before so i wont bother you with it again.

Can you play retail WoW for free? You cant.
You have to pay 10euros or whatever ammount is now,every month.
Can you play here for free? You can.
"Price" you will pay is,that you will level how God of MMO gaming intended,slowly and progresively.
Or you can pay 20 euros and get instant 70 (and thats 2months of retail gametime)
Here for that price you can get unlimited gametime.
Point is,you can always play for free or you can pay and play again in almost same way.
Try to play retail for free.Premium features always had nice price tag on them.Get used to it.
Cheers,Haldron

Maybe i said things little harsh,but it is really starting to get annoying.First people want pure "blizzlike",then people dont want to level so they want instant,now they get instant,so again complaints start..its too expensive,gear sucks,give it for vote points.So its starting to look that people want "fun server" actually.Why simply not go to retail then,i pay for the game? This constant complains are really too much.Its just "Gief! Gief! Gief!" 80% of forum comments are like that. Like i said,if you dont pay for the game,you can still play it and level up like we all did. Seriously,guys. There is no way in universe staff can give to all what they want. Cuz most of people,you give them hand and they will rip out your entire arm including stinky armpits.

This time, I agree with you Haldron..

I must admit that I'm quite happy with the situation. By setting ~20 euros for instant 70, server devs showed how much they appreciate efforts of us who are doing things hard way. Thank you :)

Quote some guy:
I would rather donate to instant 80 lvl then level it. Why? Simple math. I earn more money / hour then I would spend on instant 80. And if I level a toon and spend a week of leveling it's huge loss of my money.

What's your excuse?

really people? first you wanted to get the instant 70 option, and so they made that possible. now you complain about the price? really? running a server aint cheap and the work you put in to it aint really a 1 nighter kind of work. you can still play if you dont want to pay, so deal with it.

@squaj, i bet your one of those "people" that i mentioned above. also seeing your account i bet you havent really played here yet.

Im also someone who did the instant 70 , only 1 thing that was a bit strange was the level 1 Wep u get , u get enough money to buy some high level wep but i didnt find a shop :( , i think the price is good , i was one of the lazy people who didnt wanted to train but you never heared me complaining :) .
if they do this for 1 week they can get a nice amount of money to improve the server / keep paying it , some people think it isnt 'blizzlike' i agree but they just try to get more people + money to keep the server up !

Suggestions for the instant 70. I recently donated myself and was wonder if...

- 4x Small Bags? 4-6 Slot ones added? (at least its something)
- Wep Skill could be scaled to Max for level 70? (not a big issue, can be leveled quickly enough)
- Perhaps some level 60-70 Green weps added in?

Everything seems to be ok , but i am unable to understand the concept of DK level 70. Why will anyone buy instant 70 for DK when you have to level it till 59 (its already 55) and upon that you get same stuff as normal character get.
There should be something extra, because for making a DK already you have to level a char to 55.

According to me there should be something extra with the DKs.

Gotta love the mega-nerds raging as if someone is stealing their candy. Grow up babies. You are missing the point. This temporary feature is here to boost population by bringing in new faces - not boost the current chars.

The question here is how efficient that will be? These 12/23 points are "clever" way of forcing you to donate more because to get 12 you need to donate 20E for 21 points. But hey if you are going for 21 why just not go for 27 and and 25E and get the better option right?

I guess this is the plan but that really is too much. You can add a 15 Euro donation for 15 points and be done with it instead of this "clever" way of luring the player to donate more.

Bottom line is - what's better? 10 people to donate 20 euro or 100 new people to give 10/15?

Of course that's only my opinion.

I very much agree with an option of donating for 12 Donation Points or simply make the 'Instant 70 feature' cost just 10 Donation Points.

For the sake of Dalaran-wow, I think increasing the population should have the highest priority right now. Once you've got the people playing the server you could increase the prices. But for now, let as much people as possible have a taste of Dalaran-wow and it's awesome Retail-like details. Let them see the progress it's making and the potential it has.

Once you've got a big, stable and satisfied population, I'm sure the money will flow, right?

Greetz, Florizz

hello community,

we have received accusations via forums, private messages, tickets and global chats this days due the instant 70 feature, so we have written a post explaining the reasons about the decisions we have made . the donations table modification is not as simple as people think, there are lots of things to have mind before do so. the tables were made before the release and as we have said several times, we are developing two new systems that are intrinsically linked to donations:

1) donation point trading system.
2) character trading system.

so for those who like to accuse us of being greedy (in the forums , private messages, tickets and kirin tor's global chats), they should get a little more of base knowledgement, get informed better or even ask me by private message why this has been done this way, instead of trying to expose and ridicule us, presenting a feature chosen by the community as a subtle strategy to make money by the staff.

i guess this is a product of laziness, how easy is to sit at the computer and rant every “clever†thought that happens through one's mind, instead of spending a bit of time trying to elucidate reasoning why the things have made ​​this way. if one gets informed and after it speaks with us exposing his ideas, this is how he really helps, and not throwing his opinion without contemplating the possible negative consequences this can carry to the server.

if the main target of dalaran wow would be to make money, we would have gear or items without any kind of restriction on the donation shop and we would not have managed such posibilities as “leveling boost†features which can define the future of dalaran-wow, using a democratic system as base. we would have decided the simplest option, that would require less development time no matter what the community thought and that this non-blizzlike out. the model of server we are creating, is not oriented to raise our economy at all. money is necessary because we need help with the high costs this project's development, maintenance and advertisement requires, but i can assure you it is not what defines us.

as you can see, the option and the corresponding concept design adaptation proposed by us (scroll of resurrection) is the option that would entail more development time, is the option which most benefits to the community and less to the financial support of dalaran-wow. just a quick example, you would receive the mounts which are only obtainable via donation points, by the mere fact of using a cheaper scroll of resurrection... etc.

read our post from the blog , please, i insist.

we are starting to get fed up about some accusations based on mere ignorance without previous knowledge acquisition . whatever we do, people are never satisfied even though we squeeze our brains trying to find the best solution that suits everyone's tastes. we abide any criticism as long as it is a product of intelligent processing of the current available information. and of course as we have already shown, we listen carefully, considering each and every single one of the suggestions.

we understand that some people can disagree, is all natural and instinctive in human being, but please, if you are going to accuse us of something which can easily damage us, or may damage the overall image which is costing us so much work to build, i urge you from now on to get informed first; inquire, research and once you get all the information, process it objectively, and then, throw it against us if you really consider it appropiate. a well structured review might make change our point of view, we listen to the people.

think that your accusations can hurt us, and we are a server that takes little more than a month and is the community what strengthens us.

we will add an intermediate donation between the firsts two options as soon as we can, before the useless accusations continue, so the donation points and character trade systems will be delayed due to the need to adapt them to the new donation table. we thought it was more important to provide the option to get donation points to those who can not donate.

best wishes.

I personally salute you Lothloryen and the rest of the team of Dalaran-WoW, because you guys are seriously trying to make this server a special place with a true blizz-like feeling and you have been "forced" into this instant 70 situation. I remember when talking to Infers even before this server has started how much it was important for Dalaran-WoW to change the experience of playing from other servers (like Molten for example) and as a part of the community here I can only feel ashamed of the disrespect part of the community has showed you back.

I guess the "clever" part was reference to my post. Well first let me clarify that though it sounds harsher it does not attack, ridicule, expose or in any way label you as greedy. It was just an illustration of simple math.

And no - if your goal was to make money you wouldn't add items because the whole idea of this project and its target audience is people who want fair retail experience. I can only salute you for this but as you said money is necessary, it's just how the world works.

The point of my post was not to expose you or whatever you want to call it BUT to make a suggestion (as others also did - for a middle donation ground). Becuase yes I donated and I would again, heck if I could I would donate 100000 because I appreciate the work and the project's idea and execution so far.

But I don't understand how you first listen to the community and add the option they want - but then say (in the blog) that you DISLIKE this option that they chose - so you made it harder to achieve.

Also I do not understand the harm in this TEMP option. Let's say 100 people join and pay 10E for it. They don't get uber gear, achievemnts, nothing unbalancing. They are 70 so what? If you don't know your way around the game it won't do much for you. Once they see how the community is like - some will leave some might stay. But in the end you also said that this is only a SIDE way of attracting people - not the main way - so no harm done - they donated, you profited - WE profited because the money supports the server and allows you to do more.

This was my point - that I'd rather see a spike in population - more people who will also donate and help the project (even if they dont stay) - than a hard to swallow price that will put people off.Because a NEW random guy will not search for reasons why you did it 12p instead of 10. But will do the simple math that I did and think - another donation trap - and go away.

Anyway. In the end of the day - I'd like to UNDERLINE that everything I say as suggestions, reports or tickets stems from my desire to help and support this project and the people behind it.

I agree with Riddermark on this issue, yes he was a little harsh but that dosent justfy or rather dosent clarify the scale of the cost and the reward items that are being granted to Donors for use of this instant 70 option.

Seems like we are slowly but surely going away from blizzlike server that I was hoping we would be; I want to be clear on one thing so people dont call me hypocrite I didn't vote for this option or wanted any kind of system that would deviate away from retail's Wrath of the Lich King.

Also iI want to add that instant 70 option does not faze or graze the true WoW, blizzard thought of it (hell even I took one friend to MoP with their "simmilar" prize), but what scares me is the mention of the prizes like DONOR only titles, and DONOR only mounts.

Yeah donors are special, they keep the server alive, but then again dont think that donors are only ones that play on this server, you might start making donor only gear and start producing and changing the game that revolves only around them, let me tell you now that if you want that just say it loud and clear so we don't get the "cold shower" when we find out about it later in the future.

Many reasons why I like this server, friendly gm's, comunity is still fresh for me so I'll start to praise it once I hit 80, don't become some smug server that prizes itself and looses it's larger view - yes we all want the best, want to be the best, but we also know that we can only get there if GM's let us.

So in the end don't loose hope listen to critics and make us understand why you did what you did.

Regards, Hama.

Sorry Hama, but this is bulls**t. They never said they will have anything like donor-only items. Yes, you can get some items from donor shop that are not available from the vote shop (i.e. for free) but you can get all of these by normal gameplay so what the heck?

I NEVER said that Game Masters expressed the need fot those items, you need to read my post again not just pick and choose what you didn't like about it and then try to rip on me. Nice try tho I apriciate the time it took you to go thru my post.

I only said it "mentions" never said by who. How did you make the pieces that aren't even there??
