After being defeated by Illidan Stormrage with the help of Kael'thas, Vash'j and Akama, Magtheridon was dragged to the Hellfire Citadel where he was left under the possession of the fel orcs.
Caged and banished, the former lord of Outlands now serves to power the Fel Horde. The orcs led by the Warchief Kargath Bladefist work restlessly to drain Magtheridon's blood to turn captured orcs to the fel and experiment with the powers of its corruption, ensuring their dominance over the Hellfire Peninsula and boolstering their growing army.
All those years of imprisonment and abuse left Magtheridon with not much love for his jailors. And those who set him free are likely to become targets of his unbridled rage.
After solving a couple of issues that held us back, Magtheridon's Lair is finally released today, 19.07.2017! We don't expect any major issues to be still remaining, but in case you happen to find any, please report them at our bug tracker.
With all those long 7 to 8 years of work, we have hoarded a lot of data. Since we don't aim at performing any database wipes, ensuring that any player may return at any time they wish to and find their characters just as they had left them, we decided it was a good time to move to a machine with better specs and more available disk space.
With this upgrade we plan to cease a lot of the downtime issues we have been experiencing lately. All of our software will be updated to their latest versions as well.
We expect the transition to happen at 28.07.2017, around 11AM server time.
Minimum downtime is 2 hours, our website will also be offline during this time.
It will not be required to change your realm list.
We are moving to another machine, but we are not switching hosts or location, you should not notice any changes to your latency.
Thanks to Etro's extreme dedication to keeping our website visual and style updated, our default forum theme will be receiving several upgrades. Several style elements received upgrades, like the background, images and fonts used across the board. You will notice a richer experience when visiting pages like our voting page and others when browsing our website.
Our bugtracker is also likely to be receiving drastic style changes as we transition to a more up to date version. Preview: https://www.mantisbt.org/bugs/my_view_page.php
Thank you all for your time and have fun!
