[GUIDE] Wow-Mania Custom Content

Postby Kalasbyxan » Fri Sep 30, 2016 12:04 pm

This is a post intended to inform you about the custom features of the server with detailed information and an intricate section about the Maniac Points Currency and what they can buy.

I want to emphasize that all nearly all custom content can be avoided or excluded for those who wish to have a full blizzlike experience. When it can't be excluded, the information will tell you so.

Thank you for reading this information guide. I hope it eases your stay at WoW-Mania :) If you notice any information lacking or faulty, please do throw me a PM and I will look into it. Now please don't raise tickets over things said in this post. We do not refund laziness!

XP rates & Double XP Weekend

Postby Kalasbyxan » Sun May 21, 2017 5:54 pm

1.0 XP rates & Double XP Weekend
Wow-Mania has a default 2x experience rate to ease the journey to level 80. This can be changed to 1x (blizzlike) at Shortstuff Maniac in our WoW-Mania Mall or at your starting zone.

1.1 Double XP Weekend
We also have a Double XP weekend from 00:00 on Saturday to 00:00 on Monday. This gives a full Saturday and Sunday with twice the amount of XP, scaling with the XP rate you set for your character. Unlike the rates, the double XP weekend can not be changed as it is embedded in the game.

1.2 Even higher XP rate
You can set your XP even higher, to 4x or 6x if you have a VIP subscription going.

2.1 Commands available when VIP
The subscription comes with six custom commands:
.vip mail - Access your mailbox on command.

.vip bank - Access your bank on command.
.vip unstuck - Use the unstuck function to get you out when stuck in the world.
.vip XP #rate - Set your experience rate to 1, 2, 4 or 6 times normal rate (.vip XP 6 for example).
.vip end - Shows the date your VIP subscription expires

2.2 The Maniac Title

Cross Faction Chat and Trade

Postby Kalasbyxan » Sun May 21, 2017 5:54 pm

4.0 Cross Faction Chat and Trade
To compensate for the lower amount of players (compared to retail) we enabled Cross Faction Chat and Trade to enhance the social aspect of the server and the economic aspect too. We used to have cross faction dungeons and raids, but it caused too much stress on the server to maintain as the population grew. When you log in to the game, "/join world" to interact with players of both factions and you can use "/join x-trade" for trading business. You can also mail both factions.

Tip! Use the World Chat to encourage players to queue Battlegrounds.

Level 10 mount and Azeroth Flying

Postby Kalasbyxan » Sun May 21, 2017 5:54 pm

6.0 Level 10 mount and Azeroth Flying
On WoW-Mania you are able to ride a mount at level 10. Once you hit level 10, you gain the right riding skill and your mount is placed in your inventory. If your inventory is full at the moment, you will need to open a ticket to get your mount manually added. If you do not wish to use the mount at level 10 and want a blizzlike experience, you can simply wait to use it until you hit level 20.

6.1 Azeroth Flying
You are also able to fly in Azeroth with specific mounts if you pruchase the maximum riding skill and have Cold Weather Flying (for flying in Northrend). The mounts able to fly in Azeroth are:
Swift Red Windrider (for Horde)
Swift Blue Gryphon (for Alliance)
All WoTLK mounts purchased with Maniac Points
All Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria and Warlords of Draenor mounts

Currencies

Postby Kalasbyxan » Sun May 21, 2017 5:54 pm

7.0 Currencies
There are a few custom currencies the server uses. Read further to grasp more knoelwdge of each one of them or refresh your memory on a specific one.

7.1 Maniac Points
Maniac Points (MP) is the custom WoW-Mania Currency. It can be found in your currency tab once you earn one if you use our client or by the command ".reward view" if you don't. You can spend your MP at the custom NPCs in our WoW-Mania Mall. Keep reading to get the details. You can move MP between your characters on the same account and realm here.

7.1.1 How to earn Maniac Points
You earn Maniac Points through playtime, added every 10th level.
Level 10 - 5 MP
Level 20 - 10 MP
Level 30 - 15 MP
Level 40 - 15 MP
Level 50 - 15 MP
Level 60 - 15 MP
Level 70 - 15 MP
Level 80 - 15 MP
TOTAL: 105 MP

You can also earn Maniac Points through playing at level 80. You get 1 MP for each Arena Match lost and 2 MP if you win 1 MP for a finished Wintergrasp or Battleground. (Changed to EoF and PvP token). You also earn 1 MP for the first completed instance through Random Dungeon Finder each day. MP are sometimes used as a reward for GM events in game as well.

The last way to earn Maniac Points is through voting. You can get up to 6 Maniac Points per day (or 12 during the first week of each month). The MPs are deposited on the next day to the first character that logins in. Beware that this is based on your IP so if someone else in your household logs onto their account before you, they will be deposited to that character. Besides the MPs you will also accumulate "Vote Points" Since May 2017 no more MP can be earned by voting

7.1.2 What other ways are there to get MP?
You can trade gold into MP at our mall. The rates are:
50 MP for 5500 gold
100 MP for 11.000 gold
200 MP for 22.000 gold
500 MP for 55.000 gold
1000 MP for 110.000 gold

You can also purchase MP at our store. The rates are:
50 MP for £5
100 MP for £10
220 MP for £20
345 MP for £30
600 MP for £50


7.2 Vote Points Since May 2017 VP is replaced by Vote Tokens.
Vote Points is the currency earned through voting for the server. You can get up to 6 VP per day (or 12 during the weekends, so like the MP, it's doubled on weekends). The VPs are deposited on the next day to the first character that logins in. Beware that this is based on your IP so if someone else in your household logs onto their account before you, they will be deposited to that character. You can spend your VP at George Maniac in our WoW-Mania Mall, Orgrimmar (outside the Auction House) or Stormwind.

The WoW-Mania Mall

Postby Kalasbyxan » Sun May 21, 2017 5:54 pm

8.0 The WoW-Mania Mall
Using a WoW-Mania Teleport Stone will instantly bring you to our custom mall. This is where we placed all custom NPCs to avoid them interfering with the original world. Here you also find portals to major cities, common food vendors and a Jeeves for repair.

8.1 How to get the Teleport Stone
You will find this stone in your inventoryif you create a new character. If you already have a character but no stone, you can go to Orgrimmar and find Kaja <Guns & Ammunition> (the hut left of the Auction House), Stormwind and find Gunther Weller <Weapons Merchant> (the house opposite to the Auction House) or Dalaran and find Ildine Sorrowspear <Enchanting Supplies> (The enchanting shop right of the Violet Citadel).

8.2 The Gurubashi Teleport Stone
The same information goes for the Gurubashi Teleport Stone, which brings you to the Gurubashi Arena in Booty Bay. This was an idea suggested by a player in the early days of WoW-Mania and encourage players to PVP in the arena (or easily get to Gurubashi for GM PVP events!).

8.3 Teleport Stone Cooldowns
Both teleport stones shares a 30 minute cooldown. Keep this in mind before you use either to avoid being stranded in a location. It does not share CD with your normal Hearthstone.

8.4 The NPCs in the WoW-Mania Mall
Keep reading for detailed information about each NPC.

The Bounty Hunter

Postby Kalasbyxan » Sun May 21, 2017 5:55 pm

9.0 The Bounty Hunter
At our WoW-Mania Mall, you find Bounty Hunter <The Dog>. At him, you place bounties on players for either 20g, 40g, 100g or 200g. This amount will be withdrawn from you and the player that lands the killing blow on the target you bountied will be rewarded the same amount as you placed. There will be a server message saying "A bounty has been placed on Playername. Kill Playername immediately to collect the reward!". You can also view a list of the current bounties to find your next prey. The Bounty Hunter can only hold 10 players at a time.
