New to the project, had some questions.
I was most intrigued by the 21 unique classes that were featured in the trailer and the site's section for Conquest of Azeroth. I've registered an account and am currently downloading the client. I had a few questions.
- What is the difference between Ascension and Conquest of Azeroth?
- I see that to try the classes I need to donate. Which is the proper server to purchase the privilege on.
- If I get access to the alpha, when will it be available to play?
- I see that I need 50 DP to purchase access to the alpha. Clicking on the purchase option takes me to a coinbase transaction that says will give me 48 DP (15 x 3 +3 bonus) when complete. Won't I need more?
- Is there a way to see details about the items that I will get from purchasing a bundle? I don't know what most of them do, like the Scrolls.
- Can I delay delivery of the bonus items? I may not want them on the character that I create first.
Hello @Grug16, welcome!
I'm also "new" to Ascension so I can try to answer some of your questions.
- Ascension currently have 4 servers running, they are all named thematically.
First is "Area52" this is the main server where you make a char, get any talent and any skills, based on a pointbuy system. This is known as FreePick.
Second is the new season 8 server "Thrall", this is a draftcard system, you make a char, then you roll random skills at level 1 and again every even lvls after lvl 10, this is a seasonal server because after the season ends, your char and everything you earned will be merged into Area52 and Season 9 will then require a new char and a new beginning.
You'll get access to both of these for free.
Third is the Conquest of Azeroth (CoA) "Rexxar" server this is currently in alpha, and on this you get to pick 21 pre-defined classes that are completly custom, you will have to pay 50DP* for access to this.
Fourth and lastly is the Wotlk alpha server "Grizzly Hills" this is also a freepick server, but it's wrath content currently being tested.
you also have to buy access to this with DP.
When someone buys access to this, there is a serverwide announcement from the lichking himself, and everyone "baus" in chat.
Access to both of the alpha servers can also be bought with GOLD on the two main servers, so you could end up not having to pay anything if you play a bit on either of those servers.
CoA is the only server to have "classes" and this is the one you will need to get access to in order to try them out, the other servers do not have classes at all.
Both alpha servers are running atm and you can play on them as soon as you get access, when they go live, is unknown atm.
Yes you will need more, 48 DP is not 50 DP welcome to the scheme of making you buy more then you need.
Items in the bundle can sometimes be found sold seperat in the shop you can see it there, otherwise you can make a level 1 char on Area52 and run to ORG/SW and search the AH for the items so see what they do. Otherwise pop into discord and ask all your question there.
I pre-ordered my bundle so I go it on the first char I made on the new season 8 server, but I believe that when you buy a bundle now, you need to have a char on the server before you can complete the purchase in the shop. You will be asked to pick a char to get the items delivered to.
I hope this helped you out, otherwise keep asking questions
@Grug16 Heh, welcome to the club. That's what got me and where I started. I've since transitioned over to the Thrall Server, alliance side if you wanna look me up
1, Ascension is the guys who run the servers not the servers themselves. Conquest of Azeroth is one of the servers (specifically the one that has the 21 classes).
2, There is only one server that has the 21 classes you only have access to it if you purchase it otherwise Thrall and Area 52 that are free, the former is a draft mode ability pick (every two levels from 10+ you get three abilities at random pick one), the later is pick any ability as you level to take. I can't remember the servers name that has the 21 classes while they were fun the server wasn't super populated and currently still has a level cap (going up periodically). I sign in periodically check out the changes and go back to Thrall for the community.
3, It's available immediately
4, you can buy different amounts of DP via a drop down menu, yes you will need 50.
5, You can find some of them in the online store but TBH your better off logging into Thrall and finding them there as most if not all of them are on the AH and you can see them quickly via searching there, or like I said msg me on Thrall and I can help you out with that there.
6, you cannot, when you buy the items in store they will be delivered to whatever character you have assigned. That being said MOST of the items get added to your vanity ingame so you can then give them to ALL your crated characters (with some exceptions).
