  1. If you have multiple accounts, we're now allowing you to merge them together.

    This will move all your game accounts under one Ice Account. When logging into the game, you will see a Game Account list to choose from.

    Simply create an admin ticket requesting a merge. The ticket must include the email of both accounts, as well as any proof you have that you own both accounts. Merge requests may be denied if we're not convinced the submitter owns all involved accounts.

  2. As you may have seen, we recently fixed an enormous amount of class bugs. But we're not finished yet!

    We rely on your reports to find and fix bugs on our realms, and we'd like to show our appreciation with bug bounties. What does it mean? Put simply, if you find and report important bugs to us, we'll reward your account with credit that you can use on the store!

    The amount rewarded depends on the severity and impact of the bug reported. For example, reporting a very serious exploit that gives players an unfair advantage could reward up to €100 store credit!

    Cross-Realm Chat

    It's now possible to talk to players on other realms!
    To whisper a player on another realm, simply type their name as "CharacterName-RealmName".
    For example, to whisper the player "Leeroy" on the Hyjal realm, you type "/w Leeroy-Hyjal".

    Also supported is a cross-realm global chat channel.
    It is not a default channel and therefore you must join it to make use of it. Simply type "/join Global" to join it.
    All realms can see all messages in this channel, but only players who joined it.

  4. Sorry that we never clarified why it was shut down at the same time. It's because of the login system change.

    You log in with your email now, and it's using a completely different newer account system to handle that. That newer account system is not supported on the 4.0.6 software, only the newer 4.3 software.

    Therefore, for eternian to work at all on IceCold, upgrading it to 4.3 is necessary. That takes much time and resources, which are focused elsewhere right now

    -Fixed base melee attack power for all classes

    -Fixed Magic Suppression
    -Fixed Blood Boil not doing increased damage against diseases targets
    -Fixed death and decay damage handling
    -Fixed Death Coil healing amount
    -Death Pact now sacrifices the targeted minion instead of always random
    -Fixed Glyph of Dark Succor
    -Fixed Death Strike healing
    -Fixed Blood Death Knight Mastery
    -Fixed the rune regeneration part of Improved Blood Presence
    -Fixed the heal absorb debuff of Necrotic Strike
    -Fixed Glyph of Scourge Strike
    -Fixed the cooldown of Rune Tap not being reset by the Will of the Necropolis talent
    -Fixed Glyph of Resilient Grip
    -Fixed Mastery not having an effect on the shadow damage of Scourge Strike
    -Fixed Festering Strike not extending the duration of diseases
    -Fixed Chains of Ice
    -Fixed Glyph of Chains of Ice
    -Fixed Chilblains
    -Fixed Glyph of Pillar of Frost
    -Fixed Dark Transformation not removing stacks of shadow infusion
    -Fixed Glyph of Strangulate
    -Fixed Resilient Infection

    Point #1 I have yet to see anybody even think about pvp. Everyone is too caught up in farming 342 ilevel gear to get into a dungen.

    Point #2 It would be more balanced. However 50% of the spells don't work.

    Both your points are short-term. Classes are still being actively repaired. Players will turn to PvP as the instances are finished farming. My post is about how much worse and harder to fix the current problems would be if the stats were higher.

  7. Oh boy, the gear topic again...

    This is something we've spent countless hours discussing and changing during development. For most of it, gear was much more like you described. Item levels began at about 400 and stretched to around 560. We shared your view about feeling that bit more custom.

    But then the consequences of doing that started showing. As we discovered, classes and their abilities were designed by Blizzard with maximum secondary stats in mind. Going beyond those maximums throws class balance out the window very fast. Scaling becomes insane on certain abilities, etc. It becomes a mess, and you don't even have to go very far over the maximums to start seeing it.

    It would be a massive clunky task to try and hack the classes back to some bit of normal balance after boosting all their stats. And still being a PvP mode server, the balance of classes is important to us. So instead of destroying that, we decided to just extend our custom items to the maximum allowed before scaling becomes an issue (ilvl 420).

    So yes, the blizzlike stats was not something in our original vision, but it became a compromise to stop a bigger problem. I hope that sheds some light on it.

    I have some real concerns to the so called not vip gear. Thanagor said in game that there will be no vip gear anymore its just the best farmed gear. To us vip's who have spent alot of money to only get the best farmed gear i think is unfair. We didnt spend money for farmed gear. I hope this will be better handled than what i saw in game about vip gear, being farmed gear. I hope this isnt the case on this...

    Tier 8 (which is the best gear) comes from the Firelands raid. This raid won't be available for several months. And even when it is, it requires full raid groups to attempt. So realistically if you have bought the higher sets, you do have better gear than the best available free gear for a long time.

  9. Hi,

    As we've said before, IceCold has switched to fully email-based login. To achieve this in the game, we are essentially hijacking and using its Battle.net system. This involves a couple of small patches on your client (which the Launcher handles for you).

    Unfortunately, we have so far been unsuccessful in getting this Battle.net patch to work on the OS X version of the game. This means that OS X is currently unsupported for IceCold-WoW.

    If you are an OS X user, you still have a couple of options available to play:

    1. Use the Boot Camp feature on OS X to install Windows on your Mac, without affecting OS X. This is the recommended method.
    2. Wine is an emulator that allows you to run Windows software on OS X. We have not tested this method, and results can vary widely. Advanced users only.

    We will continue to research ways to properly support OS X. We're very sorry for the inconvenience in the meantime.

  10. Hi all,
    We've just completed the bulk of moving character and guild information to Project Fire. As we have said in the past, Project Fire is a fresh start in nearly every way. Therefore a very limited amount of old data is moved. Here is what is carried over:

    • Basic character information such as name, race, class, appearance, play time
    • Basic guild information such as name, information, MOTD, emblem
    • Guild memberships
    • Friends lists
    • Vote Points

    Anything not in the above list will not be transferred.

    Note about guilds:
    Although guilds and guild member lists have been transferred, it has reset all guild rank and permission data. All members are on the default (Initiate) rank, and guild masters need to set up ranks and permissions again.

  11. A lot of maintenance needs to be done on the network while the servers are down, and converting old data takes time too. Not to mention all the tests we need to run. So there will be some bit of time between old Reaper shutting down, and new Reaper coming online.
