Welcome to Inner-Realms!
Hello, and welcome to Inner-Realms. This post will outline a basic overview of the Inner-Realms project, and answer some common questions you may have about us.
What is Inner-Realms?
Inner-Realms is a project currently focusing on providing a progressive content 3.3.5a server. Our development team has experience in projects such as OMFG.gg, WoWReach, and Astral WoW. Our first and foremost goal of the project is to teach newer developers who wish to learn more about private server development, while providing quality and frequently updated content for our players. Our current team has extensive knowledge that is needed to provide the type of quality we are striving for, including Database and Core changes.
Our mission is to create a friendly community that preserves that feeling of family, and provides an ingame experience like that of no other server project. Our staff and developers are dedicated to creating a truly great experience that is as blizzlike as possible. Our primary objective is to constantly dedicate ourselves to learning and improving the quality of our services.
What makes Inner-Realms different from other 3.3.5a Servers?
Inner-Realms has the following features that are uncommon on other servers.
- Revised Badge Drops for Progressive Content
- Blizzlike Patch Releases
- No "Pay to Win" items on Donation/Vote Store
- Direct lines of communication with Administration and Developers
- Dedicated Website and In-Game Support Systems
- Developer Training Program
In addition, we have tested every northrend quest that will be available at launch (Quests available as of Patch 3.0.x), and have found at least 95% of them to be working in our current state as of writing. (May 2017). Our goal before launch is to have at least 99% of the northrend quests working. As of now, ALL lore master achievements are able to be earned in-game without any auto-completed quests, or GM assistance. We are continuing to test content, including quests, dungeons, raids, and more to ensure that we continue to update and provide the best quality we can.
What is your stance on donations?
Inner-Realms is operating as a non-for-profit project. Meaning that any monetary gain will be used to:
- Pay Server Hosting Fees
- Increase Server Quality by Hiring Developers
- Purchase Additional Server Space
We will aim to be as transparent as possible with our community regarding how community donations are spent.
What is the current status of the project?
Inner-Realms is currently in an Open Beta state. We are currently allowing anyone to create an account and join us in-game for additional testing. Characters made during Open Beta will be completely wiped before the server launches for a final release state. We invite you to join us, and help test spells, dungeons, quests, and over-all server mechanics. We are currently rewarding all confirmed valid bug reports with vote points, that can be used to purchase vanity pets, and TCG mounts and other fun cosmetic items once the server goes live.
Can I join the Developer Training Program?
Absolutely! We are currently looking for enthusiastic new developers who are interested in learning more about how private servers work, and the development process. If you are interested in learning more about the program, please visit this forum post. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the program, and will help you get started.
I have a question that wasn't answered here.
