Turtle WoW Unique Features

Post by Torta » Mon Aug 19, 2019 10:21 am

Greetings! If you want to learn more about Turtle WoW, you've come to the right place! We've been online for almost three years and we have decided to make a summary of what's been done and what's ahead.

First of all, we run on 1.15.x game client — the first ever fully-interactive story expansion for Vanilla WoW. This expansion takes a different path from Burning Crusade, emphasizing the familiar Azeroth of Vanilla WoW over the cosmic battle with the Legion. It's heavily based on the background lore from Warcraft 3 and Vanilla WoW, and seeks to follow some of the story threads from those games without breaking established lore.

You can read about it here: https://turtle-wow.org/expansion

New Factions and Reputation Rewards

Alliance Quartermasters Horde Quartermasters Neutral Quartermasters Hardcore Mode
Inspired by Diablo games and actual Hardcore Challenge of Classic realms, we welcome you to join the true test of your player's skills: leveling as a mortal being: viewtopic.php?f=37&t=1636

Discord Rich Presence
Our modified client comes packed with a system that shows that you're playing on the server on your Discord profile, tracking time played and showing you're a real turtle. If you want to opt-out of this you can disable Rich Presence in your Discord settings. If you're worried about its contents you can check our source code at: https://github.com/slowtorta/turtlewow-discord-overlay

No! :) There'll be different quests. [What Tomorrow Brings] is a part of another quest chain and will be available once server is ready for it.

Dude I love the idea of this server!

I especially appreciate the attention given to details for the survival and bounties, alongside the holy strike quest.

This is great. I wish that I could develop coding skills to help you guys out.

not sure if you guys know about this but I noticed the other day that people cant queue BG and Arena at the same time. I'm sure if that would be a possibility more people will do Arenas.

I see that Outland, Ghostland, and Eversong Woods will be added; I'm curious what form they will take. Will the level cap be pushed to 70 for Outland, will Ghostlands retain it's identity as a level 10-20 zone for Horde, will Eversong be made available to Alliance rather than Horde since they have High Elves?
