Incursion in Zul'Gurub PvP Community Event, May 5th

Recommended Posts


One of the best things in WoW is when players get together and do something creative with the game that wasn't designed or planned or intended by the developers, when communities use the World of Warcraft to do interesting things. One such event is coming soon, as there's about to be an incursion of the PvP variety in Zul'gurub, with level 20 characters!

The event takes place on May 5th and is looking like it'll be a whole lot of fun and mayhem, using the entirety of Zul'gurub's architecture for the action, trying to catch and kill the opposing faction's leader. The folks at Wow20 took quite a bit of time and effort to organize the event, so a big thanks goes out to them for investing in the WoW community and creating new and different thing for us to enjoy.


It seems the Alliance is aiming to retake the entire Eastern Kingdoms after their sort-of victory at Lordaeron, and Sylvanas has called the Horde to take a stand in that no longer Hakkar infested Zul. Obviously the only heroes up for this particular task are fresh recruits, as the veterans are off in Zandalar and Kul Tiras fighting tentacled monsters, so level 20ies will have to do the job!

The wallpaper for the event is damn impressive on its own.

As far as specific rules go, the game starts with the attacking team at the entrance of Zul'Gurub while the defending team has to bunker up in the temple of Bethekk. The attackers have to find a way to enter if they want to kill the enemy leader. Everything is allowed: items, toys, consumables and mounts.


As you can see from the glaived fellows above, the event starts this Sunday, May 5th and since it's all level 20ies, anyone can play, regardless of subscription. Just create a new starter account (or use an existing one if ya have it) and get to leveling before Sunday! Those of you that have a subscription can just roll an Allied Race on the day and be ready to go. All you have to do is join the discord so you can be invited to the action:

So NA servers then? Might be worth mentioning that. 

Indeed, it will be on European servers for this event. But our community gathers 228 American players as well, and we plan to do several US events in future. Don't worry, we do both sides!

      We have some interesting statistics to take a look at today, as redditor Quasiwave created an infographic looking at population data for both factions, the most popular races and classes, as well as a (somewhat less relevant/accurate) "most commonly paired race/class combos" diagonal. There's not that much shocking info in there, with Blood Elves being staggeringly popular for the Horde and Night Elves and Humans for the Alliance, but it's interesting to see all the stats anyway.

      Now, the numbers can never be exact (or even close to it), as Blizzard doesn't share that kind of data anymore, but Quasiwave took the next best thing, as the data was taken from Warcraft Realms and features 300,000 characters (not unique players).

      Here's some more info on the methods used by the author himself and you can check out the reddit thread for even more statistics debate on the methods used, whether it's a realistic representation, and just how accurate or not those diagonal boxes are.

      We're back to small hotifxes, as today's have only one actually, with the N'Zoth fight getting that multiple Spike Tentacle cast on the same player bug sorted out.

      Chromie is casually chilling on her hourglass near embassies in Stormwind and Orgrimmar, allowing players to pick an expansion/timeline they would like for leveling from 10 to 50 before heading to Shadowlands.
      New players that have not played through Battle for Azeroth and reached level 120 yet with at least one character won't be eligible for this option and must play Battle for Azeroth by default when Shadowlands goes live.
      Any subsequent characters you create will be able to pick from the following timelines for leveling:
      Kalimdor & Eastern Kingdoms
      Deathwing's emergence from Deepholm altered Azeroth's landscape forever and weakened the veil between this world and the elemental planes. Deathwing won't know what hit him!

      The Dark Portal has once again opened, and the demons of the Burning Legion are advancing on Azeroth! Make sure their plans have a rather... Azerothian-sized setback!

      The tragic fall of Arthas Menethil and his ascension to the frozen throne as the Lich King is a moment in history that has permanently left a lingering scar across all Azeroth. Stopping the Lich King would really put the Scourge's plan on ice.

      An ancient and mysterious land shrouded in fog for over ten thousand years appeared due to the events of the Cataclysm, and its people could really use the help of an adventurer like you. Going back to Pandaria is a great way to see that life is worth savoring!

      The orcish clans had a very unfortunate fate in our timeline, but the meddling of Garrosh Hellscream brought forth a force that threatened the very existence of all life on Azeroth--the Iron Horde. Travel back through time and meet the orcish clans and the draenei for the first time... again!

      Broken Isles
      The Burning Legion sought to conquer Azeroth and enslave its world soul and now that the Tomb of Sargeras has been reopened, they advance on our world. History will remember that you stood between the Legion and annihilation!

      You can return and talk to Chromie to select a different timeline whenever you feel like it.
      There is also a whirly screen visual and clock ticking sound when you select a timeline.

      Chromie also has some cool replies to go with your expansion choice:
      Vanilla/Cataclysm: "Who would have thought someone named Deathwing would bring about so much destruction?" Outland: "You look quite prepared!" Northrend: "Do not exercise restraint when showing your great power to the Scourge." Pandaria: "Whatever you do, do not get between a Pandaren and their brew. It'll be unbearably painful if you do!" Draenor: "If a scary orc offers you something to drink, you probably want to say no." Broken Isles: "If you find a powerful weapon, just make sure it isn't corrupted by the Burning Legion or Old Gods, okay?" Note that timeline icons are currently messed up on Alpha.
      Chromie Time allows you to select an expansion/timeline for leveling in Shadowlands.
