Newsletter Nov 20: Happy 13th Anniversary WoW

Year 3, Issue 46

Hello, Readers.

World of Warcraft has been going for 13 years now. It's had its ups and downs (not naming names but we're looking at you, Warlords and you know it). Some of us pine for the halcyon days of old, hoping that the newly announced Classic servers will give us back what has been lost. Some of us look at the upcoming expansion, and freak out about the fact there is still so much to do and will the downtime between expansions be enough to catch up? (I feel like it's very slim odds but I'm feeling decidedly overwhelmed by how much I still have to do). However we look at the game now, we are all here together, playing a game that unites us despite our real life differences, and even our in-game differences. More importantly, in spite of the theme of the upcoming expansion, Blizzard are looking to give us even greater capacity to find those that share our interests.

Without Blizzard, without World of Warcraft, we would not have A3. A3 gives everyone a common interest, a chance to connect and reach out to people who we might otherwise not have talked to. At the end of the day, that's what it's all about: making the connections, the friends, who, at the end of the day, bring Azeroth to life far more than any coding the developers could do.

Azeroth could not be what it is without any of us, developer or player.

May Azeroth unite us for many more years to come.

PILGRIM'S BOUNTY DONATION DRIVE

The Pilgrim's Bounty has begun in WoW and so has A3's Donation Drive for Pilgrim's Bounty and feast-themed pets! Pilgrim's Bounty donation drive pets include the Bush Chicken. The A3 Donation Drive also includes some non-event feast-themed pets so that members can participate if they don't have the time to farm a ton of currency. These pets include: Crazy Carrot, Enchanted Cauldron, Fel Piglet, Lil' Leftovers, Mr. Wiggles, Pierre, Ridgeback Piglet and Thaumaturgical Piglet. All pets are worth 1 entry each.

Tiers for this donation drive are 0, 10 and 15. Members who contribute at least two pets to the drive will also have the option of choosing a Wyrmy Tunkins as their 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.

Whether entering a one-time competition or requesting your weekly pets, please remember these essential tips so your requests and entries aren't disqualified.

  •   Remember to keep an active level 20+ character attached to your site profile. It is a good idea to log in to this character before posting adoption requests to refresh your armory information.

      Please remember to check what pets you have before submitting requests! Add-ons don't always display things accurately.

      Please remember to report your request list if you acquire a pet you have requested. We've modified our system so that even if your post has already been flagged you can still report and make changes.

Local currency update coming November 16 for Canada, Japan, and New Zealand

2 days ago
In October, we announced that we’ll be converting from USD to local currency on Blizzard Battle.net® in Canada, Japan, and New Zealand. These changes will begin to roll out in these regions within the next 24 hours.

For players in these regions, Blizzard Balance will be unavailable during the brief update process, but purchases can be made using other payment methods. Any purchases made during this period will be processed in local currency.

For World of Warcraft® subscribers, the recurring subscription will continue to be charged in USD for the next 12 months. If there’s any interruption to your subscription, however—including an expired card, changes in payment methods, or account cancellations—any new subscriptions will be charged in your local currency.

We want to make as many of our players as possible feel at home in the Blizzard ecosystem, and make managing your account with us easier. By switching from USD to local currency, we’re expanding the types of payment we accept and helping some of you avoid paying transaction fees charged by financial institutions.

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!

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. 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, about 4% of our members contribute to the to these operating costs and around 1% 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.
