I think the focus on this mode should be the Risk vs. Reward and truly testing your skills as a player. Where one mistake, misstep or growing overconfident can become fatal. That thrill..

I can see the appeal of wanting to keep a character you have invested time and effort in, but that's not what this mode is about in my opinion.

If that is what you want to get out of it, opt for a regular leveling experience.

Yes it will be infuriating for a while when you lose a high level character you have grown attached to, but you get back up, start a fresh one and get right back into it.

I am very excited to share my many journeys, many iterations of mortals - to hopefully one day make it to immortality.
In a world where you can be anything, be kind.

Pepper and myself are planning to stream/do YouTube vid of us playing on mortal mode but is one question we have?

Is there a grace period where another player can ressurect you or is it instant deletion upon death?

Small informational update on Mortal Mode:

• Mortal characters will not be able to use Auction House.
• Mortal characters will be able to trade only with other Mortal characters.
• Mortal characters will be able to group only with other Mortal characters.
• Mortal characters will be able to send and receive mails only from other Mortal characters.

We still have a few issues to resolve before launching it. Stand by! In best case scenario would be great to have some client-side support for this mode, which is being worked on in 1.15.1.
Excitement!

I like that. Reminds me of that quote from the movie Heat, “ don’t get attached to something you can’t walk out on in 30 seconds flat”. Anyone doing the Mortal challenge should almost expect to lose their character. The goal and thrill is to defy that expectation lol.

Will the character be able to use AH, group with other non mortals, and other restrictions be taken off when they hit 60?

Finally a gaming style that lets you fully immerse yourself in vanilla World of Warcraft like never before... No questions asked if you die, well, you die... This makes friendships tighter, immersion greater, role-playing becomes natural, it will truly feel like you belong in Azeroth and that your actions really count for something.

End Game should be the long awaited hard journey to defend Azeroth from its most greatest enemies! Not a Raiding culture for items! If you quested hard until level 60, then Azeroth knows your name. You became a true Hero. So needed that the Spirit Healer itself grants you passage to your body again and again, for she knows how important it is to save and defend Azeroth.

My friends and fellow Azerothians our lives will now truly begin and we are not prepared!

Can we have a system default guild for every lvl1 mortal mode player? So we can group up rather than chatting in the world channel. : D

Thank you very much! I'm so excited to have this new mode!

Unlike hardcore, mortal mode will have normal exp rates, right?

I completely don't see any point of this mode considering power shortage, disconnects happen that can kill your character..

That is a very valid point!

I absolutely love this Mortal mode idea, but losing our character due to network reasons can be infuriating! Imagine doing a dungeon, well prepared, with all your mortal friends and while you are batteling along the way your ISP has fart in the head deploys something live into the their network and your home network goes offline for some minutes! I would cry just to know when I could connect again and see if my character suffered an ill fate....

The biggest problem is that although you can log disconnect events in the server side you can not discern voluntary and unvolutary disconnects, which could lead to cheating.

In the end its up to the devs how they find solutions for these problems. Because although the idea is wonderfull its implementation could have undesired effects.

It’s true that Internet access problem is annoying. But it is not the reason we turn against mortal mode. Anyway Luck is almost the most important part in our real life, same in the wow I will say.
Good luck! My turtle friends.
