Lotus-WoW Staff would like to invite you to participate in our last open beta on December 3rd 2021. Since our last appearance here we have finished scripting Townlong Steppes and we're closing in on finishing Dread Wastes (~85%). These include NPC texts, movement, phasing, quest chains & storylines (Completable achievements), quest scripting, gossips and emotes.
Alongside this, we've updated numerous core features that will allow us for a much faster and precise development. For example the MoveSpline system allows us to more quickly manage proper waypoint movement for NPCs. Another big fix to gameplay is Spell Queue for custom lag tolerance option working as intended.
Additionally, there have been updates to the dynamic respawn system that will be fully implemented on launch.
Vale of Eternal Blossoms has been restored to its initial patch 5.0 form! (Picture below) However, it will still not be available for the beta. You can use any 5.4.8 client for the beta.
Alongside the changes to the game-server, our website is being worked on. We'll be providing the players with an entirely reworked CMS with features such as a fully working armory (almost done), different PvE & PvP ladders. The Lotus launcher and our client (mandatory, other 5.4.8 clients will not work on Lotus upon launch) will be available several weeks before the server release which we expect to be late December/early January.
What is the purpose of the beta?
Testing endgame group content such as dungeons/raids/challenge modes. Players will be able to create level 1 characters and then decide for themselves if they wish to test the old content, boost the characters to lvl 85 to test Pandaria leveling content or boost to lvl 90 to participate in the endgame content. All of this will be provided via NPCs. All gems/enchants/profession NPCs will also be provided.
We are looking forward to build a stable and friendly community, together with YOU.
The Lotus-WoW team has lot of ideas for our bright future together.
