As requested from few members, full explanation of Frozen Nexus Realm with all features can be read bellow.
What is Shadowburn?
- Shadowburn is small community with few dedicated developers that work on our favorite expansion - Wrath of the Lich King.
- Our goal is to make something unique, that will provide solid PvE and PvP experience while having fun in every other aspect of the game.
Why custom and not Blizzlike?
- There are many servers world wide that provide Blizzlike experience.
- We decided to change and add some 'features' to the game which will, hopefully, provide extra fun for players to enjoy.
- Having said that, we will not offer custom items that will give any sort of advantage while in Dungeons, Raids or Battlegrounds and Arenas.
- Our custom items are only towards Transmogrification and nothing else.
Then why Progressive realm?
- We spent a lot of time to fix and make every raid or dungeon available without issues.
- Since we are not "Fun" custom server, our Dungeons and Raids are fully scripted.
- Bringing back some old features that Blizz decided to remove wont affect on PvE or PvP at all.
- Our custom features on the other hand already exist on retail and we try to add them to Lich King version as well.
What kind of 'features'?
- Some of them, for example Titles were in the game before, and we decided to bring them back, to make PvP a bit more interesting.
- We also have custom Battleground which will work like any other, without any custom rewards.
- Beside those, after release, we will introduce Warfront, Isle expedition and custom Dungeon.
- You can check full list with more information bellow.
What about rates?
- Rates are 1x, but we reduced experience requirement for every level.
- For example, to reach level 80 you need almost 2mill. and we reduced it to 1,1mill.
- Gold drop rate is increased to 2x, same as Reputation.
- When it comes to Professions, we decided to boost them little as well. Mostly, it's about chance to gain new skill, even when it's on 'gray'.
Are there custom items?
- Yes, we made few custom items but they wont affect on game play at all.
- Our main goal with custom items is to be towards Transmogrification and nothing else.
- It would be really unfair to gain any sort of advantage in PvE or PvP with those.
Custom Warfront, Expedition or Dungeon?
- Our unique custom features, will give you chance to obtain some older vanity items that have been removed from game.
- While in Warfront, which is PvP zone 24/7, you will have chance to obtain Toys.
- In Dungeon, there will be chance to obtain some older mounts that have been removed from game.
- When it comes to Isle Expedition, there will be chance to obtain few rare pets.
- It's a new thing that Blizz added in last few expansions and we decided to make it work in Lich King.
- At the moment, while raiding ICC and when u "Release Spirit", you will be spawned outside raid.
- With Dynamic, your new respawn point will be your previously killed boss.
- It will work same in every Dungeon or Raid.
- Definitely, will save some time.
Are there Vote and Donate shop?
- There is Vote page, but we haven't completed Vote store at the moment.
- Once it's done, it will provide same items as Donate shop.
- Donate shop will offer Pets, Mounts, Toys and Transmogrification items.
- Beside those, there will Character options to change Race or Faction.
- Once all Realm 1st Achievements are taken, there will be option to buy Level boost up to level 58.
- Last on the list is Premium Account.
What is Premium Account?
- Once purchased, player will get "Book of Powers" which will allow him to access to few really nice options.
- You will be able to spawn your Trainer, Auctioneer or Bank (NPC will be there for 1 minute, but won't assist in combat)
- There is also option to mount from level 1 (60%), which kinda works like Taxi Chopper on Blizz.
- Beside those, there are few Morph options and teleport to Dalaran.
- Do note that Mount option will be disabled until all Realm 1st Achievements are taken.
Transmogrification and items?
- You will be able to Transmog you gear to desired and obtained items or sets.
- There is option to Donate for Vanilla and Burning Crusade Tiers.
- We also made few unique Transmog Weapons like Frostmourne, Ashbringer and Shalamayne.
- You can see example of Shalamayne in our Promo video.
Teleporter and Portals?
- We decided to use Teleporter NPC for this.
- It can be found in any Capital city, near Flight Master.
- Each location have specific level requirements to be seen on the list.
- Yes, spectating is available as well.
- We decided to enable command, so players don't need to run back to city to spectate someone.
- Simple command - .spec spectate Knindza (For example)
Auctioneers in Dalaran?
- Idea came from community and it was really good one.
- Faction Auctioneers are spawned in the middle of Dalaran - Don't worry, you can't attack them.
- Yet another idea from community.
- You are able to chat and group between factions.
- We have also enabled Crossfaction Battlegrounds and Raids, which will help a lot.
- Beside that, we added small icons to LFG chat, so there won't be confusing from which Faction is player.
Dueling and Cooldowns?
- Health, Mana and Cooldowns will reset after each duel.
- Also, while in Duel, players will be phased alone, so there will be no help from others.
In-game Email delivery?
- In-game email delivery system is reduced to 1 minute (Down from 10/60)
- There is no reason to wait whole day when someone send you something.
Recruit a Friend?
- Recruit System is available (RAF) - Will earn Premium Account for 1 month.
- Cause there's no perfect system for this yet, all RAF will be checked by myself before adding Premium Account.
Transfers (Will be available 6 months after release)
- Transfer your character from any server - You will get an 'template character' with 190 ilvl.
- Guild transfers are possible as well - For bigger guilds, we will make an Guild House.
