All characters taking part in this challenge need to register in game. Use ".ironman info" in game to find out how to do this. Signing up will automatically put you into the Ironman Contender guild if you are not already in another guild. You may be in a different guild but do not use Guild Repairs nor can you use the guild bank to assist your character in any way. There is no limit to how many times you can attempt this challenge. Death Knights are not eligible for Primal's version of the competition.
Breaking any of the Rules will disqualify you and you will receive an in game notice of your disqualification. If you are disqualified you will be removed from the competition although you may register to try again on another toon. Read the FAQ, be aware of the rules.
Contenders who complete the challenge successfully will be rewarded with the [Reins of the Bengal Tiger] on level 70 toons on that account on the PrimalWow Server. Read the next post in this thread on how to claim your mount.
Adjudicators are Dana and Errorista. You can contact them if you are a contender and have a problem.
Dana (Ironman contender Devanna or ask in world).
Errorista - best contacted by pming on this forum.
These judges decisions are final and no correspondence will be entered into if you are disqualified. However, we would be happy for people on the server to report any rule breaking if seen (preferably with screenshots) and please cheer on the contenders are you see them around the world. Buffing them is a nice thing to do.
- Do Not Die! - this is the most important rule of the challenge. If you die your character will be moved to the Honourable Dead List.
No gear higher than White quality.
No profession other than FIRST AID.
No Potions or Flasks to be used. (Health and mana pots only are ok - we are talking about spellpower pots, agility pots etc) This includes Healthstones if you are not a Warlock.
No Elixirs (except those that count as elixirs for quests). PLEASE NOTE: Quests that require Elixir use (like Drakuru's Elixir, a Wotlk quest) allow for only ONE USE of the elixir per quest. Extra uses of the Elixir will disqualify you.
No food buffs or other external buffs (including scrolls) are allowed. Class abilities, racials and personal buffs (eg. Kings if you're a Paladin) are okay! If a mage/druid/paladin etc runs past and buffs you, that is fine, asking them to buff you is not.
No enchantments on your gear.
You cannot join a party, raid or group with the intent of getting help to further yourself in the challenge. No dungeons or raids to be completed. No ports or summons.
No Battlegrounds or Arenas allowed.
No Refer-a-Friend or other XP-boosting activites, gear or buffs (Darkmoon Faire, etc). DO NOT use the in game xp boost. Rested exp is ok.
Account-wide Abilities: Not Allowed. The basic idea here is that you should be using what would only be available to your character if that was the only character on your account.
Shirts and Tabards are allowed as long as they do not provide a boost / gain / skill that your character wouldn't normally have. You can get a tabard from the Ironman guild bank to cover your God-awful looking gear. Please return it when you leave.
You may use your talents and spec changes are allowed.
Do not send your character anything from another character, including bags. The only exception to this rule is fashion gear, if you want to wear for instance the Noble's Monocle, mood rings or a pretty dress.
This is for those folks that are going to level solely through bloody combat, basically without questing. The main difference here is focusing on obtaining Kills that grant Experience as well as keeping under the Quest Completed Threshold.
- Minimal Quests Completed - You are allowed to complete only 75 quests before losing this challenge. However if you go over the limit, you will be moved to the Ironman challenge.
If you die to a server glitch SCREENSHOT it with the combat log showing and apply to me to have the death removed from your armoury. Once the armoury is edited you can then continue. DO NOT continue playing your character until the armoury shows no death for your ironman character and you have received the all clear from me or Errorista.
Some bugs are not included in this way around glitches. Charge and blink are known bugs and can be avoided simply by not using them. Undercity elevator deaths do not count for this as generally they are due to lag (not server lag) or moving into the elevator too late. Each death will be considered individually and you will be notified of the result by pm.
