Rates & Features

We have fine-tuned some aspects of the original features and systems to provide the most engaging The Burning Crusade experience possible for everyone playing on Sunstrider.

To ensure the high-quality standards we set for our project, we'll keep a finger on the pulse and adjust features and systems accordingly if necessary.

Server Location

The Sunstrider game server is located in Europe, France.

Experience Rate

The rate at which players earn experience is set to x5 by default.
It’s possible to manually lower the rate by using the service panel when logged into your account on our website.

We've made a few changes to compensate for the increased experience rate.

  • Training costs are removed.
  • Available spells are automatically learned when meeting the level requirements.
  • Weapon skills increase at a faster rate.

Progression through phases

Content release through 5 phases. Click here for more details.

  • Phase 1: Launch. Karazhan, Gruul's Lair, and Magtheridon's Lair. Arena Season 1 will release during this phase.
  • Phase 2: Serpentshrine Cavern, Tempest Keep - The Eye, and Arena Season 2.
  • Phase 3: Hyjal Summit, Black Temple, and Arena Season 3.
  • Phase 4: Zul'Aman.
  • Phase 5: Sunwell Plateau and Arena Season 4.


Items are set to their 2.4.3 values.

Buffed content

The difficulty of raids and dungeons is adjusted to match the itemization and ensure everyone is in for a challenge.

PvP content adjustments

To encourage players' participation in PvP related content, we're adding a few things to make it even more satisfying.

  • Achieve PvP titles known from the classic era (private, sergeant, champion, etc.) by getting honorable kills.
    Kills on players within 5 levels of you count as honorable kills.
  • The daily quest [Call to Arms] is available on launch instead of its original release with patch 2.3.
    We're adding one more daily PvP quest for players to do - the quest can be picked up from the same quest giver.
  • Start arena matches sooner with our ready-check system.
  • Players inside arenas won't have their current location shown in the /who section.
  • During weekends, everyone earns 20% extra honor points.

Dual Talent Specialization

No Spell Batching

No spell-batching works to make the game more responsive in those hectic situations, where milliseconds make the difference between life and death. We don’t batch spells up, but instead, execute them as fast as possible.

The Armory

Inspect characters, guilds, arena teams, and more using our detailed online armory.

Speed Run System

Compete and compare with our speed run system.
The groups of players with the fastest clear time of every dungeon and raid are shown on the PVE leaderboard on our website.
Beat the time, and your group will take the leading position!

Anti-Bot & Anti-Spam System

We've developed our anti-bot system to have a chance at standing up against violators.
We will never accept the use of third-party software to automate any facet of the game.

Our anti-spam system has been developed to sanction abusers and gold-sellers continuously spamming in-game text channels.

Catch-up mechanics

We will be looking into different ways of letting trailing players catch up as we go.
We want our server always to be approachable and appealing to new players, casual-minded players, and hardcore-minded players alike.
