Naxxramas Update



Credit: Hurricane - Naxxramas Trailer 2017

Dear Community,
In our last announcement, we told you that the Abomination Wing would be ready for testing in early/mid July. Development has been going very well, and we are excited to announce that on Sunday July 16th, between 17:00 and 19:00 (server time), the Abomination Wing of Naxxramas will be open for testing on the Kronos Public Test Realm (PTR). Testing will be open for one week. At this time, we are still on track for the full release of Naxxramas by the end of Q3.
The purpose of the PTR is to gather as much feedback from the community as possible, so that we can ensure the best experience when the full Naxxramas raid is launched. There are two ways that you can help us achieve this goal.

  • Providing detailed, high quality issue reports through the Issue Tracker. You can find instructions on making these reports, here.
  • Recording videos of your raid experiences on the PTR and sharing them with us. Enabling voice communications during your recordings is especially helpful.
Similar to the Spider Wing Testing, we will have special mechanics in place for the PTR.

  • The aggro range will be reduced to 10 yards
  • Players and their pets will deal 50% more damage, including every spell and attack
  • Creatures in Naxxramas will deal only 50% of their intended melee damage
  • Other similar changes such as increased player healing may be present
  • No other wings will be available for testing
In preparation for testing on Sunday June 16th, characters will be copied from the live Kronos realm to the PTR some time between Wednesday July 12th, and Thursday July 13th. Some commands that you may find useful on the PTR include:

  • .additem (to place an item in your inventory)
  • .mod money (to get gold for spells/repairs)
  • .command (to see a list of other available tools)
Thank you in advance for your testing efforts and your issue reports!

Release Notes





In addition to the Naxxramas development that has been going on, we have been hard at work resolving the backlog of issues on our issue tracker. Many of these changes address small details that bring Kronos closer to the original vanilla experience. Below you can find a summary of changes that have been made recently. A full list of changes can be found in our changelog. We would also like to announce that based on community feedback, we will not be making changes to Felwood flowers at this time.

NOTE: You will need to delete your WDB folder in order for all changes to take effect.

  • Updated AI, spawn points, spells, pathing, speech, stats, and more, on over 100 NPCs.

Just to be clear again about the PTR testing:
Guilds are only allowed to test on 1 evening, or can we go back multiple times during the testing phase?
Will the number of Boss attempts be limited?

Last time we had 2 resets to test out the spider wing. On first ID there was no "boss reset" limit if I recall right. I think that is fine and on the second ID you could limit it to 5 as it was back in january. Most of The bugs will be found out on the first ID anyways and GMs can closely monitor the testing as previously.

Thanks for the update, and have a smooth testing!

Is Naxx going to be buffed after all? E.g. Sapphiron aura superticks to prevent zerging him without frost res? Don't think it was answered officially.

And, of course, consider removing world-buffs in Naxx (thanks Bazzil for posting his opinion there, try to make sure it reaches the senior management).

Get yourself ready, save up your gold.
To see what secrets Naxxramas may hold.
Fight skeletons, zombies and try not to freeze,
horrifying bosses will try to get you on your knees.
Are you scared of spiders? I advise you stay here,
spiders there are humongous and will fight without fear.
Are you ready to do it?? Are you ready to go?
Then build a strong army and defeat every foe!
Are you just gonna sit there and wait, or what?
It's time for adventure and to kill Kel'thuzad!

Remove or increase itemlvl restriction please, nef and c'thun gear would be nice (as would fapping in ironforge wearing t3 :wub::wub:). Naxx is nerfed anyway, it's not a dps representation.
