This "Ashenvale region" map is the first map in my upcoming Azeroth ORPG series.
I started this project in late 2014. This version is from summer 2016. I have been working on the next map in the project for a while.
The next map will be "Winterspring" and beta version is soon complete. ATM I have made things abit "easier" in winterspring map.
There is no scrolls, only pre-set class spell books. Mobs have lower hp and basicly things is wilder and goes faster. Maximum hero level will be 50.
All items that you get in Ashenvale can be loaded into winterspring. And the items that are very hard to get in Ashenvale will scale.
Tier 1 items, mounts, potions (from plans) will scale hard. But most of the lesser items will remain the same as here. There will be no pvp and 6 total players.
I have created factions that you can gain reputation with to buy better items. I have made many more quests and chain quests. I will not spend to much time on winterspring.
It will be a zone to level from 30-50. Now that Blizzard removed the 8mb limit. I can finally start to make awesome raids and unfold my dreams for this project
This "Ashenvale" starter zone is very hard at the start. I would recommend to buy a pre-set summoning book at the start. It may require lots of hours to get to level 30.
The "Raise Dead" spell is bugged and can cause the mobs to stop respawning. I am fully aware of this and will change it in the next big patch that I will release with Winterspring beta.
