Realm Description

Mysteries of Azeroth — is a story expansion made by the Turtle WoW Team, inspired by the Warcraft universe of Blizzard Entertainment.

This expansion aims to take a different path from the Burning Crusade, emphasizing the familiar Azeroth of Vanilla WoW over the cosmic battle with the Burning Legion. While being heavily based on the lore from Warcraft 3 and Vanilla WoW, Mysteries of Azeroth seeks to enhance the game by adding content that matches the already well-established lore of Warcraft Universe.

The best vanilla WoW server, don’t look further, this is it. It even has features that Blizz removed during WoW beta like survival profession, gardening, tauren fast running and many more. Guilds can have a house anywhere in the world and you shouldn’t be worried about numbers because pve content is cross faction so you will always find groups to do stuff. Also there is an awesome pvp ranking system so I highly suggest that you at least give it a try. https://forum.turtle-wow.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=728

This is by far the best vanilla server that I have ever been on.
People are terrific, scripting is stellar and the staff are cool – And this is all despite the short livespan of this server. It seems to be growing everyday.
So are you looking for a vanilla experience, with social and cool people, then this is the server for you!

Still going and still the friendliest private server by a long shot. This is how you remember wow, with quests you’ve never seen before and people willing to help at every turn. You don’t have to role play, there aren’t any toxic try-hards and not being ganked everytime you land is really nice. The staff are knowledgeable, helpful and very active in game and on discord. Try it, you might like it!

I played this server for about a year and I enjoyed it the darker nights and hardcore mode work out a lot better than I thought it would and the new content they are working on was also looking good but two of my characters a hunter named duckcommand and my druid named elderlarry they did not like those names which is why I went elsewhere so if you play turtlewow be careful with your names.

hey Torta, why do you delete legit complaints or downvote them?

Those are very REAL experiences, and you’re silencing their voices, preventing them from being heard.

If all you want are comforting lies, than you’re as fake as your server is GOOD.

Pancake

So I gotta say this video is not full at all. I have played many servers and this one I have played for several mounths now so here is the honest feedback. The servers population ratios is more like 15-85 horde to alliance. The script is nice and there a lot of custom quests that help you level quickly unless you plan to play hard mode. There very good and friendly people that will help you out and that you can raid with , but there is a big BUT . The server has a lot of toxic players some of them are actually part of the staff. If you plan to PvP on horde side then get ready to lose weeks in a roll and to be gloated from the alliance and the staff which are biased towards the faction. The server has 0 class or faction balance, the paladin holy strike which is the the only ability added just for alliance deals 1k normal dmg on any player and crits for +1500, it’s totaly unbalanced for example a 58 lvl paladin will crit for 2k with green gear. Get used to play 2v1 or 2v2 matches and hope you get a single badge or an honorable kills. Also if you evade in WSG alliance players mainly GMs then you better get used to threats for getting banned as well and feel free to abuse if you’re alliance and graveyard camping.
But of course there are some good people and I happy to know them and do content with them. The server is definetly horde player UNFRIENDLY, I got a message from one of the staff that states that all horde players are scum.
I do hope the staff gets their head right, but I think that’s a long shot at best.

So true, toxic staff, muting people out of nowhere, using kill commands to kill off your character, and other stuff. The premise is great execution and support from the staff is bad as hell.

Hey Pancake, my name is Stonecrusher and I played Alliance (a 60 paladin).

Just so you are aware, I completely agree with ya! I brought it up in chat, even tried sticking up for horde players (which got my ousted from groups and guilds alike).

It’s sad that the server suffers from an insane bias like this. I got banned btw for calling “Mannerheim”, one of the “Gloaters” as you put it, “hitler”.

I got muted for SEVEN DAYS for calling him hitler!!!!!
And after 4 days, I was banned completely. Every account I had was banned too, so either it’s a mangos error from me trying to login too quickly, or they actually just banned me because they hate the truth.)

Anyway, I feel for you. I posted my thoughts here and my “comments” never made it passed approval because the truth hurts.

You are completely correct, Pancake. I played alliance here to 60, and noticed it as well.

Calling it out got me called “Horde Fanboy” and other things like “u clearly play horde.” (despite this Dwarf Paladin being my only damn 60).

That said, I feel for you. Gonna try and keep reposting this as my comments keep getting deleted despite not breaking any forum rule.

I’ve been part of the community for quite a while and I do feel like I can write an honest review.

1, Leveling
The leveling experience is nice, with tons of custom content that helps you level up quicker, some custom modes, like lower rates, no rested bonus, etc. If you more into the social aspect of the game I would suggest you bring a friend or better 5 friends to run dungeon content with you as you probably will have problems with finding a group.

2, Endgame
Endgame content in turtle wow is divided into little “cells” which are not very keen to join forces with outsiders. You have one team doing AQ40 and the rest stuck in MC, Pugs are not a thing so not expect to do raids unless you are part of a guild with staff members.

3, PVP
PVP is pretty much dead, BGs do not work as they should, your only option is Arena fight over Arena chest or WSG which is usually something like 3vs3 with dev on one side telling you how much you suck just because you don’t play alliance.

4, Staff
Staff is helpful most of the time. You come across few people who are helpful and few people who are straight-up rude towards the player base. Just do not argue with them otherwise they will mute you out of nowhere, threaten you with banns, or whatnot just because they think they better than the players.

In general, this server has a very good premise, and I do think them devs mean well yet sometimes it seems like they suffer from a lack of attention to detail. The alliance is prioritized and the scale of custom content on one side doesn’t match the other. Also, don’t try to help them in any way they will just tell you that “nobody asked”.

Comunity 4/5
Scripts 4/5
PVP 2/5
Staff 2/5

In the end of the day if you are willing to give it a go you might have a good time.

Frostyfyre, it’s not crossfaction in terms of BGs, so it does matter — at least if you wanna rank up and get gear.

And honestly? He’s not wrong — the general chat on this server is beyond toxic. It’s not uncommon to be made fun of for playing horde (even in Guilds) and my only 60 on this server was a Dwarf Paladin.

The community seems to hate Horde players in general ( and Horde Lore but thankfully noone role plays here so that doesn’t matter).

Ultimately, if you play Horde, any other server (Darrowshire in particular) is much better assuming you don’t mind the PvP-always-on.

Nostalrius this server is not.

Boy, you definitely don’t seem bias’d at all.

You are correct though. It IS the best “Rp PVE” server out there. Not because it’s earned that title, but because it’s the ONLY server that’s both RP and PvE.

Considering you’re name, I assume you played a female human mage of the same name, who posted sardonic and out right incorrect information in general chat regarding any complaint to balance.

But hey, it’s easy to mock and shame others than it is to make ACTUAL arguments.

Toxic Community if you look closer.

Anything that doesnt fit the established world view of this server, be it on discord or world chat is met with an absurd toxicity, if you dont want to join the community and just go out an play its a great server, but dont ask questions else you get ridiculed and jumped by multiple persons. i came here because i thought the community was nice, but i all got was rejection and arrogance, the GM’s are toxic in world chat “sanctified” belittles people on a regular base and calls it banter, even if people say they dont like it.
the same attitude is met if you get in contact with “valrosh” the lore writer for the server who rejects any lore that doesnt fit his world view and bends the existing lore to his interpretation, if you critzize or question this behaviour your met with fiercy followers who would do anything to make you look bad and if so constantly brings it up to discredit anything you say, making memes and openly jokes about you.
Moderators will mute you if you “accuse” people with your opinions.
you can argue with reason and get called names, in public discord chats you are constantly exposed to people who will troll you, even if you tell them that you have autism or problems to understand sarcasm or jokes, they will just continue. just for asking if something is normal, you are made to feel stupid, with the explaination “dont tell me somewhere it is different”, so the reason for being picked on :” everyone does it” is a accepted philosophy under turtle wow players. i am no snowflake, but if i join a server and am met with no serious answers atall, i personally think something is wrong.

TLDR, play the game ignor the community and you get a decent wow, with no game breaking bugs.

So many people talk about how great this server is, that I’d just like to point out that for every “great thing” it has, it also has a rather ugly thing that reveals itself.

PvP balance is non-existant. They balance the game around PvE in the worst way– fury warriors can top dps in the best gear?

Well, let’s make every class do that, while nerfing things like “Slam”. Not only that, they don’t nerf things that would normally offset this. Warriors take 10% more damage from EVERY source to get their dps. Paladins do not make that kind of sacrifice.

I’m fine with us getting Holy Strike, but reckoning makes it a complete joke– run up to an enemy, get all 5 stacks, unleash holy strike and destroy a 60 horde warrior in the best gear while i’m in BRD blues.

This is what makes this server a mess. If you only PvE, you’re probably ok. But you might as well play a Druid or a Paladin, because you’re in for a bad time with warrior (unless they somehow buffed them too, but it doesn’t look like it). Frost mages and rogues are even more broken in PvP, and druids are probably super cancer now in WSG. You know, the things PvPers HATE ABOUT VANILLA.

As I stated in my Topic above, the server administration is very bias’d and truthful statements are often struck down. You’ll find yourself being bullied by 10 people using sarcastic responses rather than any logical response.

For example: “I think Warriors deserve to have a few QoL changes for pvp to make them less frustrating to play.”

Will get this response “Lol…. biased to warriors. I’m gay.” rather than “Well, why do you feel that way?”

I guess that’s the result of having High Elves in vanilla wow; we get more “High and MIghty” responses rather than real responses.

Anyway. If you’re into casual pvp and you like classes like Warrior or Disc Priest, you’re better off playing on Darrowshire or any other vanilla server that exists.

F*ck TurtleWoW.

TurtleWoW = Nazis??

You know what special group of people banned communication outright because they disagreed with dissent? NAZIs, that’s who.

My “news” that was posted broke zero rules. It wasn’t harassment, as I played on the dang server in question. I stated what I liked and what I disliked. A little harsh, but nothing a 5 year old couldn’t handle.

Many people and voices have been silenced here, and banning me without warning is rather questionable at BEST.

My point stands: TurtleWoW is an unbalanced mess with hypersensitive administrations.
They ban and mute for no reason; one guy said he was muted for simply not knowing the word “cis” meant in a big conversation that was happening in his guild chat.

it’s absurd, and the rampant immaturity shown by not only the developers, but the community managers as well, is disgusting.

0/10, don’t play or support these people.

I played this server for a little over a week with the highest level being 19.

This server is annoyingly buggy. I wanted to like it, so I stuck around despite its flaws. I noticed the mobs tend to follow much further than they should. The priest I played felt so weak and the warrior I played felt so strong compared to other servers.

I was muted by a GM for using slurs, when I never used them in chat. In fact I didn’t say anything when I was hit with a mute. That was the final straw for me.

Kind of weird to see so much negativity against Turtle in these comments – with positive ones being downvoted. Meanwhile, the old and cynical Reddit has always been all sunshine and rainbows about Turtle? Weird. Shills?

Either way, Turtle is an incredible server. The very fact it has continued existing as a small RP-PvE realm for 4 years is an achievement in and of itself. And now it has exploded in popularity, to 2400 concurrent players? That’s insane.
https://turtle-wow.org/#/population-graph

Regarding the mods – I’m quite autistic and edgy, talked politics recently, and all I got was a whisper to stop, I stopped… and that’s it. Nothing remarkable, but at least I was neither muted nor banned. That’s the song of my people either way.

Don’t listen the trolls in the commenent’s complaining about how they got banned for nothing. It’s load of bull, listen guys. Turtle wow staff are simply keeping the discipline in the server, you can’t get away with toxicity and racism. I played for ages there, joked around with guild mates and no one gets banned unless you act as pure cunt, you know the type of average warmane player. They might even be warmane refuges can’t say, just know that with increasing pop there’s many assholes but thankfully staff is filtering that garbage

Very toxic community on this server. Don’t act like you’re new to the server or you will get hassled. Don’t ask questions and for sure don’t let anyone know you’re from the USA, you will not stop being harassed. Have seen death threats against Americans, just for being from America in world chat and no the staff does NOT do anything about it.

Good luck!

I just got banned, asking for the truth over the accusations if torta is shenna, well it dindt took 5sec to delete me from discord and the server, furthering my concerns, as i got even deeper into reddit rabbit holes i adressed the topic with well established and known guilds, witch then confirmed most of it to be true and some are just plain coincidential stupidities, but…

In the conversation there came a few things up i cant ignore, Everyone does it, people think shenna is bad ? according to many people, everyone in this scene does it. not only torta, they are all in on this, they want you to not now the truth. even if you care or not, all they care about is their income, because they appear to not have any besides private servers.

i get it they feel threatened but… lying and censoring. not talking to people, just whipping away anything negative.

decide for yourself if you want to play on private servers, i am gone. i wont support lying, censoring thiefs. they could just tell the truth, ppl dont care actually… but to resort to such things with even the GMS and Admins in on it and instructed to prevent it in any case.

it feels… well more like a mafia than someone who wants to create something fun, milk as it lasts, change the name and forget the past… well gl guys.

from a player who is playing on private servers for 15 years and is familiar with elysium / lights hope case .
let me tell you something –

shenna got a lot of toxicity irl because of that situation with whitekidney , according to some russian youtuber she even got physically attacked by some crazy ppl irl because of that and spent some time in hospital . so having to hide her identity now is completely understandable
.every private server is first of all a business that is created to make money for its creators . noones gonna pay for hosting and waste time to create something good only for the love of community or anything . its business . but retail is much bigger in that case so i dont understand ur frustration ?
whitekidney never was a white knight rofl . i dont understand why anyone is believing that guy when he has bigger thief / goldselling history than anyone else in pserver community .
i mean welcome to private server community where a girl gets attacked irl for something everyone else does too and having to hide her identity because of crazy ppl now . its a business just like retail . why is anyone surprised ?

because integrity and you said it yourself for them its buisness, for me its not. so their choice is money>game, so they will just apply anything to make money, and that always comes at costs for the “customer” or player.

and there are enough projects i would rather give my attention, and the key word is, all do it, who cares about shenna or torta or anyone, i only care for integrity and truth. i would do the same thing if it was whitekidney or crogge or anyone of those people who sold services, where shenna is the least evil of all
for me its, opening my eyes, i never was involved in the scene, it was fishy to begin with stealing IP from blizz etc etc. but i loved the game so i was just coping, by i cant ignore my consiousness supporting, potential sociapaths who dont give a fuck about their own kind

ok i tried turtle wow and i figured why this server has so low population . this servers administration is overly woke as u can imagine – u will get banned instantly both in discord and on server if u say anything that they dont like . kinda funny tho – they are always so surprised why they get no ppl playing on their projects and their population literally drops like crazy when they literally ban everyone . all the negative feedback in this thread was totally well deserved .

Good server with new spells and items wich i really really like but sadly very Bad GM’s
they mute you very fast.
Disagreeing with them is not allowed and results in a mute or bann
i feel like that they need to show people who is the boss because they are scared of not controlling people or their opinions.
if the world chat is saying words they dont like they threaten to mute you, even for simple non rude words.
they act like 12 year olds who feel important or something.
