Newsletter July 10: Put Your Feet Up While You Can

Hello, Readers.

I hope you're all having a good week and have been making the most of the Pet Battle Bonus Experience. There's still a little bit of time left so make sure you put in a last push for leveling your pets if you can.

Well done everyone who donated pets to the Midsummer Fire Festival; it's always wonderful to see a good turnout for our donation drives, especially for ones like Midsummer where tedium is the word of the festival. It was even more awesome seeing people banding together and offering flights around the continents in Discord. Working on the principle of 'time flies when you're having fun', it can certainly make the blossom collection infinitely more bearable to have friends you can group with.

I hope you all have a good week.

Piwakawaka

MIDSUMMER FIRE FESTIVAL DD

#47 Fenrasta
A total of 98 Fiery-themed pets were collected during this donation drive! Way to go everyone! These in-game pets will be adopted out to current and future A3ers who haven't collected them yet.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Donation Drive and congratulations to our winner!

Please check your private messages on the forum for information on claiming your prize.

Wild Pet Capture Service
Above all else... A3 loves collecting pets! Collection doesn't just stop at pets that can be traded and adopted though - there are a few worlds' worth of wild pets out there waiting for collectors, too! A few of us would like to offer our love of hunting wild pets to A3 members to help them also round out their wild pet needs.

Each week (sometimes a few times each week!) we will comb zones to help members find the wild pets they are still after. We will turn a zone upside-down and inside-out looking for your pet(s) and message you once we've found them. You will then come and capture it! If you would like to take advantage of this service, but aren't available during our typical times, please don't hesitate to contact us and ask about alternative days and times.

Specifications Allowed

✔ Both Factions
✔ All Zones
✔ All Pets
✔ Any Quality
✔ Any Breed
✔ Any Specifics (color, size, etc.)

Pet Suppliers
Do you want to help supply pets for adoption that A3 needs? We have a Pet Suppliers thread where members can sign up to sponsor certain pets they are willing to supply. When the supply of certain pets starts to run low or we have an upcoming project where we’ll need more of a certain pet – we’ll send out a notification about that pet to our suppliers! There is no guess work and no 24/7 farming because we’ll let you know when we’re in need of the pets.

There are no quotas to meet when supplying the pets that you signed up for. You can provide whatever amount you are comfortable with.

New supply options were recently added! New options include common vendor and non-Legion pets.


There are 100's of supply options available, but below you will find the newest options added to the supply request sign-up sheet. These options are especially in need of suppliers right now.

Please note that the sign-up sheet is organized according to which expansion each pet was introduced in, not the expansion "zone" that they are found in.

This Month in WoW®: July
July in Azeroth starts off with bursts of flying color throughout the capital cities as the Midsummer Fire Festival comes to a close. While the holiday may be ending, the work within the Tomb of Sargeras continues this month as raiders continue to plumb its danger-filled depths. But, don’t worry. It won’t all be serious business when the main auction houses in Orgrimmar and Stormwind set up Azeroth’s biggest dance parties.

In-Game Events
Tomb of Sargeras – Raid Finder Wing 2 and 3 Open [July 11 & July 25]
With the Pillars of Creation at hand, the Class Orders have paved the way to The Tomb of Sargeras where they will seal the Burning Legion’s portal into Azeroth. Two more Raid Finder wings open this month
Burning Crusade Timewalking Event [July 11–18]
While this event is active, players level 71 or higher may access a special Timewalking Dungeon Finder queue, which scales players’ levels and gear down to revisit past dungeons from The Burning Crusade expansion. While Timewalking, bosses will yield loot appropriate for a players’ regular level.
Black Temple Timewalking Event [July 11–8]
Travel back in time with your group of stalwart heroes and take on this iconic raid dungeon from The Burning Crusade expansion. While Timewalking, bosses will yield loot appropriate for a player’s regular level.attle!
PvP Brawl: Deep Six [July 11–18]
Deep Six pits teams of six players against each other in three iconic Battlegrounds: Warsong Gulch, Silvershard Mines, and Temple of Kotmogu. Each Battleground offers a little variation on the traditional format, such as flags that area bit closer in Warsong Gulch, less carts to keep track of in Silvershard Mines, and only two orbs within the Temple of Kotmogu.
Auction House Dance Party [July 11–18]
The main auction houses in Orgrimmar and Stormwind have been cleaned out and turned into dance parties for the day! Crowd on in and show some faction pride!

But wait, there's more; read all about it HERE
The Black Temple – A Journey Through Time(walking)
Patch 2.1 – The Black Temple released on May 15, 2007. Among many other features (such as finally being able to fish in Underbog!) the patch included the long-awaited Black Temple raid, location of the final showdown between Azeroth’s greatest heroes and Illidan Stormrage.

Ten years later, World of Warcraft: Legion players were invited to journey back into the Black Temple through Timewalking—offering longtime WoW raiders a chance to revisit an old favorite, and newer players an opportunity to experience this defining chapter in Azeroth’s history for the first time.

To read all about the designers reminiscing about the original raid, and what is involved in the timewalking version, click HERE

Connecting A3ers through Discord
Image
A3 is always looking for new and interesting ways to connect with its members. One of our greatest hurdles, though, is connecting members to each other. With everyone playing on different servers, different factions, and the limitations of the friends list – many of you have probably never had a chance to connect. We hope to use the Discord App to help solve that!

The major perk of an app like Discord is that communication is live. Meaning – you can see it on the fly (assuming you are logged in). This will be an advantage over the forum or twitter where you need to check in throughout the day. It will be especially helpful with organizing groups, sharing rare spawn information with others, or just getting to know your fellow A3ers!

A3 Forum Games

A3 has a number of forum games going for members to participate in. Members are also encouraged to start any new forum games they have ideas for. Head over to our new Games forum and jump in!

Help Support A3
Did you know that A3 has bills? It’s true! A3 has monthly and yearly bills related to the cost of operating the Agency. We earn some funds from ads on the site but most of A3’s operating costs are paid out of pocket.

Operating costs are the costs required to run the community – these do not include the costs of sponsoring giveaways. A3 is a volunteer operated project and we need the help of our members to keep the site online.
Currently, less than 4% of our members have contributed to assist with operating costs. Fewer than 1% of our members have contributed more than once.

A few spare dollars here and there can go a long way! Donations are accepted through PayPal and Patreon.

For more information about donating financially please visit our Supporter's Page.
