Custom Changes

In order to provide players with the best experience on The Barrens,
we have made the following custom changes to the server.

Cross-faction
This allows players of both factions to play together and includes -
chat, friends, groups, guilds, dungeons, raids, mail, trading, and the auction house.

Battlegrounds will still be faction versus faction!

City-wide buffs from handing in [Head of Onyxia] and [Head of Nefarian] will be applied in Stormwind and Orgrimmar
simultaneously, not just the receiving city.

As paladins and shamans can now group together, a few interactions have been limited to maintain overall balance.
  • Blessing of Kings overwritten by Windfury, Strength of Earth and Grace of Air Totems
  • Blessing of Wisdom overwritten by Mana Spring Totem
  • Blessing of Salvation overwritten by Tranquil Air Totem
  • Resist Auras overwritten by Resist Totems
  • Devotion Aura overwritten by Windwall Totem
  • Windfury can only proc from physical Paladin damage.
    For example, the extra holy damage added by Seal of Righteousness will not proc Windfury.
    However, SoR will still add its effects to any additional attacks provided by a Windfury proc.
XP rates
XP Rates can individually be modified to give you an opportunity to boost your incoming experience points.
Rates of 0x, 1x, and 2x can be set by talking to an NPC in each capital city.
You must be level 6 or higher to modify your XP rate. If you have a level 60 character on your account,
you can also select 3x.

On the occasion we also have an XP event where any player can select a 4x option.
This is for special occasions usually surrounding a major announcement.

As part of the XP rate increase we also reduce the cost of spells and abilities from class trainers,
it is a direct division of the XP multiplier, so if you select x2 the cost is halved,
if you select 4x the cost is quartered.

Respec cost
Respec costs have been decreased and capped to 5 Gold.

Training dummies
Training Dummies have been placed in Orgrimmar and Stormwind to test your abilities, rotations and power.
