Release date - 5th May, 2019!
● What is Shadowburn?
-Shadowburn is small community with few dedicated developers that work on our favorite expansion - Wrath of the Lich King.
- Our goal is to make something unique, that will provide solid PvE and PvP experience while having fun in every other aspect of the game.
● Why custom and not Blizzlike?
- There are many servers world wide that provide Blizzlike experience.
- We decided to change and add some 'features' to the game which will, hopefully, provide extra fun for players to enjoy.
● Then why Progressive realm?
- We spent a lot of time to fix and make every raid or dungeon available.
- Since we are not "Fun" custom server, our dungeons and raids are fully scripted.
- Bringing back some old features that Blizz decided to remove wont affect on PvE at all.
- Our custom features on the other hand already exist on retail and we try to add them to Lich King version as well.
● What kind of 'features'?
- Some of them, for example Titles were in the game before, and we decided to bring them back.
- We also have custom Battleground which will work like any other.
- Beside those, after release, we will introduce Warfront, Isle expedition and custom Dungeon.
- You can check full list with more information bellow.
● Are there custom items?
- Yes, we made few custom items but they wont affect on game play at all.
- All items we made are towards transmogrification without stats on them.
● Custom item drops in Warfront, Isles or Dungeon?
- As i said above, custom items wont affect game play, since there is no stats at all.
- And yes, from our custom features, you can obtain some transmog items, pets or mounts.
- Most of them are removed from game and we wanted to give chance to players to obtain them trough those.
● What about rates?
- Rates are 1x, but we reduced experience requirement for every level.
- For example, to reach level 80 you need almost 2mill. and we reduced it to 1,1mill.
- Gold drop rate is increased to 2x, and we might increase reputation as well, but that depends on community votes.
● Are there Vote and Donate shop?
- Donate shop is almost ready and we working slowly on vote.
- Mostly in them, players will be able to get Vanity items, Pets and Mounts.
- Class, race and faction change will be available as well.
- When it come to level boost it will be only up to level 58, 1 month after server release.
- Other then that, there will be Premium Account.
● What is Premium Account?
- Premium account with few unique features, like spawning your trainer, bank, auctioneer or level 60 mount.
- You can use mount from level 1, which works kinda like Taxi Chopper on Retail.
- Also include few morph options.

- Arena spectate is available as well.
- You can spectate any player with, yet again, simple command - .spec spectate Knindza (For example)
- Auctioneers added to Dalaran (Alliance and Horde sides) so players don't need to run back to other cities.
