To kick off the start of summer, and 3 months after SF's 9th birthday, we are happy to announce the addition of new Legendary Weapon Models! 35 new models have been added, raising the total amount of them to 305 (up from 150). Many of these models were discovered and prototyped as potential legendary items in the 2014 summer update by GM Awoth, but were unable to be added due to the 150-item limitation on vendors, so we had to limit ourselves. With our multivendor system in place nowadays, we can easily bypass this and allow more room for such items, finally allowing more of them to make its way onto the live server.

The cost has not changed and they will still be obtainable in two separate ways:

  • 150 Weapon Fragments (from PvP and PvE daily quests)
  • 2050 Arena Team Rating and 3750 Arena Points

It's March 22nd, which means Smolderforge has turned another year older. It's truly incredible to think how long Smolderforge has been online and running -- we're one of the oldest now! It has been such a memorable, and educational journey through many moments, both fun and trying. If you have ever played on Smolderforge -- thank you -- you've helped shape this community and create a fun environment for those who still enjoy playing TBC at level cap, even though it has not been the current expansion for some time now. =P

Running Smolderforge has been a life-changing thing for me. Not only the skills and knowledge I have acquired, but the people I have met around the world who I've been able to share a connection with over a game we've played. I've visited many of you, stayed with you, and even in a more recent case -- migrated across the Atlantic to Sweden due to a job offer made possible by one of you. Thank you. It's been incredible, and Smolderforge has been a privilege to run, and I'm so ever grateful for the fun environment you have all shaped to really make Smolderforge what it is, and give me something fun and creative to work on over these years.

With humbled love,
Henhouse

Inspired by the recent efforts of other servers, we have taken the step as the first TBC server to implement a functional 2FA into both the game and the website. This feature allows users to safe-guard their account further from unauthorized use and access by requesting a unique time-based code to login with upon detected IP address change. This feature is optional, but we highly recommend all users enable and use it.

To get started, please login and view the Account Security tab in your account manager. You will need to verify yourself via the email address registered to the account to begin the process.
