END OF STAGE 2 BETA
Quite some time has gone by since we first announced our project. During this time, we've had a total of two public testing stages where our goal was to gather as much information as possible about the state of our realm.
We would like to thank every single one who showed interest in our server and spent several hours helping us improve it by reporting any issues encountered during this time. We're satisfied with the results, and have decided to bring it to an end.
The server will be closed for the public starting April 16, 2020 23:59.
CURRENT PROGRESS AND CHANGES
Our developers have been working both individually and as a team on various changes and fixes to our server. A majority of updates have been implemented to our PN Tester realm, where we've been working together with our testing team to ensure its quality.
As Neltharion moves into closed beta, all changes will be implemented to the main realm. We will then continue to work towards our goal of officially releasing the server.
We have not yet decided the exact release date. However, we wish to release the server as soon as possible and we expect to have a release date by the end of May. The release date will be announced at least one month prior to the official release.
One of our most recent updates includes a rewrite to the combat system. We received several reports and complaints on this matter, and we are now happy to tell you that it should no longer be an issue and should now provide a good experience while playing.
We have put together a changelog containing noticeable changes done so far here.
CATACLYSM MYTHIC DUNGEONS
We would like for Neltharion to be a unique and fun server to play on, without going too far into the custom content category. We have discussed a few options and we are now happy to tell you that we are working on a Mythic Dungeon system.
For those of you who might not know what Mythic Dungeons means - it's an addition to the dungeon system, with increased difficulty depending on the level of your Keystone. The timer is also a crucial part of the system, beat the timer to upgrade your key/difficulty and receive rare bonus rewards.
The Mythic system will have no impact on the actual expansion itself other than competition, glory and cosmetics. It will provide new challenges and a new way of doing Cataclysm dungeons. There will be no Mythic gear rewards, but instead rare rewards such as transmogrification items, mounts etc. Drop rates will depend entirely on the difficulty of the dungeon. The harder the dungeon is, the higher the drop rates will be.
The core system has already been completed, and we are now working on affixes to make it even more interesting. More information about the Mythic system, affixes and loot tables will be announced at a later date. You can watch the first system test on the video below.
CHANGES TO THE WEBSITE AND STORE
During the open beta, we decided to make all items available in the website store, along with free points and coins. This enabled everyone to test out any item in the game, and we were able to recieve feedback on items that have an impact on the game experience. This also gave us the ability to ensure that the website is working as intended, due to the fact that it has been built from scratch. All issues found with the website has been fixed.
We have no intentions of keeping these items in our store, not now nor in the future
As we end our open beta, the following permanent change will be made:
This means that all Cataclysm raid items will only be obtainable in-game.
We have also slightly changed the design of our website recently.

You can now also view your own account information on the my account page.
When we announce our official release, we will do a full character wipe:
