World of Warcraft legacy servers now launched on Elysium

World of Warcraft legacy servers now launched on Elysium

After a week or so of account transfers from Nostalrius, the Elysium World of Warcraft legacy server project is now live.

Today is launch day for the Elysium Project and old Nostalrius accounts have been moved over for users who opted in to transfer accounts via a special token system. In the past few days, a total of 79,376 accounts have been moved to the new Elysium servers.

Both the PvE and PvP servers are now live as of this afternoon, and after a few hiccups with missing items, everything is now working as intended.

When Nostalrius met with Blizzard this year there was some hope that they could work with Nostalrius in creating official World of Warcraft legacy servers. When Blizzard failed to respond to Nostalrius and didn’t reveal any official plans at BlizzCon, Nostalrius decided to shut down Nostalrius and move their system over to Elysium.

What happens now with Elysium remains to be seen but it’s unlikely Blizzard will let it continue without some sort of legal action in the future.
