Title: Nostralius Reborn
Post by: Kailef on December 10, 2016, 06:15:19 AM
The Nostralius classic World of Warcraft servers - Reportedly with all of the former user data intact - Will be coming back online at the end of this month.  There was an official announcement on the original Nostralius website about it, confirming that they had released their source code and data to the Elysium Project.  You can read about it both here (https://elysium-project.org/) and here (http://forum.nostalrius.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=44550)

Here's Elysium's video on the upcoming release:

I found more news on this:

https://forum.elysium-project.org/index.php?showtopic=22768

They have officially confirmed that former Nostralius players will get their characters back, exactly as they left them!

I'm taking a "wait and see" attitude about this, but I'm certainly hoping that this all turns out to be true.

They've posted instructions on how to get your old Nostralius characters back.

The link is here:

I'm going through the process now, I'll report back on the outcome any issues I have.

I'm done, and it was pretty easy.  You just follow the instructions, it's pretty easy to do.  The only thing that might confuse the less computer-savvy members is (A) you need to remember your old username and password for Nostralius, and (B) you need to copy the key that Nostralius gives you and paste it where Elysium says to paste it.  Fortunately it's quite easy to do, you just need to make sure you copy the entire thing.

When I was done, I went to their control panel and checked, and they had my characters:

Nostalrius PvE
Dwarf Male Hunter Ariyn
Human Male Paladin Sherpah
Night Elf Male Priest Tymmeron
Human Male Paladin Kailef
Night Elf Female Hunter Ariynne

Apparently I have registered an account on Elysium. Now I cannot seem to log in or get to a place where I can enter my log in information.

Unfortunately I can't do it for you because they're somewhat careful about things like IP addresses and so forth.  Maybe I can remote control your PC and do it?

Just shy of eighty thousand people have transferred their Nostralius characters over to The Elysium Project.  That's pretty impressive.  I hope these guys are up to the task, that's a lot of players!

Interesting... Marvel Heroes 2016 *has* gotten tiring recently... I might have to logon and see what's what.

It's at least moderately fun.  The had some major logon queue wait at first but it's pretty quick and easy to get on, now.  The PIF Silvergate guild exists, but it's fairly empty as only myself and one other member are actually playing it at this point.

I'm splitting what free time I have between Shroud of the Avatar (which I love) and Classic WoW, which is very nostalgic.  That said, I'm vaguely interested in looking at this weird top down space MMO called Star Sonata.  I might check it out this weekend.
