We promised to share updates as we get closer to the merge. Original information was that the merge will take place sometime between 17th January and 29th January.
We have now decided upon a date: 24th January 00:00 MST, 07:00 UTC.
Please be advised that you have a bit over a week of 2x XP event left. Once the servers are merged the event will come to an end.
For the duration of the merge all services will be down (realm, forums, website). We will be available on Discord during the merge process to answer any questions you may have.
We've estimated the time to complete merge would be around 12 hours. However, it can take more or less time, depending on how smooth the proccess will be.
Now for some numbers:
Current amount of Characters on Stonetalon: 27432
Amount of Characters merging from Wildhammer: 43236
Total amount of Characters on Stonetalon after the merge: 70668
Empty and banned accounts, including their characters, will be deleted from database.
After the server goes live again, characters with conflicting names will be flagged for a rename. If two characters share the same name, the one with more /played time will keep the name, the other character will have to be renamed.
Stonetalon will continue as PvE realm.Please remember that the only difference between a PvE and a PvP realm is that no one is being forced into PvP activity inside a contested zone.
