[09:45] Website is currently under heavy load while players restore their accounts, if you are experiencing technical issues or receiving errors, take a short break and try again.
We're ready for launch, however we would like to postpone it until morning to allow for rest for some of us that have been working around the clock since yesterday's disaster. This will also allow us to have two active independent backup systems active at the time of launch and resolve minor technical issues that we were previously encountered. Forums are expected to be open shortly. Here is what to expect:
Based on join date:
- 100% of coin refund from all donations back to accounts
- 10 - 50 coins to all accounts (including non-donors)
- 200 - 400 points to all accounts
- 3 - 5 levelups per account with 0 - 3000 gold on each
- 1 - 3 professions per account (excl. recipes)
- Starting gear: 2 heirloom sets and 2 PvP sets to all accounts
- Vote points on all accounts will be set to December 29, 2014
- Vote points spent on some promotional items will be refunded
After recovering an account, gifted refund coins and points would have to be spent within 30 days before they are reset. Unrecovered accounts can still be recovered for the next 5 months. We will have extended support available to help with account recovery. MoP iLvL in the marketplace will be increased gradually during this time from 498 to 528 by the end of February 2015.
Nothing is final, please feel free to share your view and feedback on our forum.
