      What is a Game Master ?

      A Game Master's role is to help players, to guide them in their journey and to make sure that everyone's stay on Firestorm is as pleasant as possible, by making sure that we all respect the rules, and each other.
      You will thus be a support for the whole international community in game, and on the forum.  
        Prerequisites: A good knowledge of WoW as a whole, but with a strong emphasize on the expansion you are applying on.  Proper english skills, including a flawless spelling and the capability to follow and answer in a voice conversation. Having a great level of patience and compassion when in contact with players! Being at least 18 years old, and mature Having a functional mic, and a valid discord account A strong will to help, and being able to listen, not just hear! Being able to organize and schedule your own time  Being available at least 10 hours a week, regularly (if you can log 10h the weekend, but not at all during the week it won't do!) Being able to work autonomously but also being comfortable talking with your team!   Will be a good addition to your resume: Having a knowledge of GM Commands (Trinity / Mangos) Having a GM experience, even on another server (if so, which one ?) Anything that you can put forward in your application, that would make us chose you over someone else!  
       
      How to apply?  
      ↓ If you think you would fit in the position, and wish to join the International GM team, please write us an email here: ↓
      »   fsrecruitmentinter@gmail.com   «
      Knowing and mastering everything isn't required!

Example: Discord#1234 All of your Firestorm account emails Your forum account name       The more information and details you provide, the better! It shows involvement, but also helps us evaluate your potential as individual, and within the team.
      Telling us that you're motivated in two lines probably won't work out: we expect to get to know you a little bit when reading your application. To get some insight on you, your personnal experience and knowledge!

      Your application will be reviewed and we will send you an email back with our answer, usually within a week. If it gets accepted we will contact you directly on discord to proceed with a voice interview in order to get to know each other better!

      International Moderator Recruitment   04/27/21

        Greetings, The Firestorm Team is currently looking for Forum and Discord Moderators to reinforce its ranks. It is possible to apply for one of the two platforms only.     Who are we, what are our jobs? The moderators are the people mainly in charge of monitoring the Firestorm forum and the International rooms on the public Discord. They have almost no power in game and will never intervene in game (except in very exceptional cases). They monitor the forum in terms of its content, moderate, warn and sanction people who do not respect the rules. They also provide assistance to players and respond to those who encounter problems.     How to apply ? Applications should be sent to the following address: >> fsrecruitmentinter@gmail.com <<
      The subject of the email must start with the [Moo] tag.
      A minimum of information is to be provided when applying. It goes without saying that two lines to say that you are motivated will not be enough.
      We expect from you in this application an expression and development of your experiences / knowledge / personal information. If your application interests us, you will be contacted automatically by Discord or by email for a possible interview and then a test period will follow, the duration of which will depend entirely on you. Please indicate your nickname on the forum and that of discord so that we can look at your background and your behavior there.
      Are required in your application: Be 16 years of age or older. Impeccable spelling. Know how to use a forum correctly. A minimum of knowledge on WoW. Being able to keep your cool, have rigor, regularity and autonomy. Discord & a functional microphone to facilitate intra-staff communication. Will be a plus for your application: Relatively wide schedules. Have already been a moderator on other forums or other discords (if so, indicate which ones). And what you may find interesting to highlight.   Please indicate your nickname on the forum and that of discord so that we can look at your background and your behavior there.   The Firestorm Team thanks you for your future involvement.
      See you soon.

Three months ago, we discussed for the first time the state of the upcoming update on Sethraliss, our BFA realm: the 8.3 patch Visions of N'Zoth.
For those of you that missed it, or simply want to compare the evolution since then, you can find the post here. We also had our first talk about what comes afterwards: Shadowlands.

While it's still too early to give additional details about this next expansion of World of Warcraft, we thought it was time to give you some fresh news on the 8.3, and every change it includes.
As a reminder, our current client is in 8.2.0 version, which means it will need to be updated when this ships to live: some of you are used to it, it will consist on a small patcher download (around 40Mbs), that will need to be placed in your client folder and started to get all of the new assets & client changes. Simple ! Content will then be released progressively, to reflect what happened on retail, and what you're used to here.

But I'm getting ahead of myself: rest assured we'll cover that in details in due time. For now let's take a look at what we have in store !

  • The Horrific Visions system is working, and testing phase has already started: those are scenarios designed for 1-5 players taking place in alternative versions of Stormwind or Orgrimmar where N'Zoth's corruption thrives. You need to hold as much as possible before losing all your sanity: this mode will allow you to upgrade your legendary cloak.
     
  • The legendary cloak Ashjra'kamas' questline has been scripted: this item can be upgraded and will offer protection against sanity loss during your Horrific Visions run, and against Corruption on equipment. Its different appearances are working, but the two spells it can bear are still a WIP.
     
  • The Mythic+ Season 4 Affix: Awakened is fully scripted, including commanders. Final tests will be done to check if everything is working as intended.
     
  • The new PVP Season's rewards have been scripted and tested for the most part at the moment. The reworked Deepwind Gorge is also working !
     
  • Assaults are soon done, then testing phase will start. Happening in either Uldum or Vale of Eternal Blossoms, they will come with dailies, events, rare mobs to slay and even more !
     
  • The 2 new World Bosses will be worked on shortly, and will then require testings
     
  • Operation: Mechagon will now be splitted in two (think like Return to Karazhan in Legion) and available in Heroic & Mythic+ difficulties. The developper in charge has scripted everything, and testings are ongoing !
     
  • The first wing of the new raid: Ny'alotha is fully working and has been tested quite extensively. Following wings (that won't be released at the same time) have already been scripted for the most part, and tests have begun.
     
  • Most class balance changes have been reported, scripted, and confirmed as fixed !
     
  • The 2 new allied races (Vulperan & Mecagnomes) are close to be fully operationnal: only one Vulperan racial still needs work.
     
  • The new system that replaces titanforging, called Corruption is fully working, and the corruption spells themselves have also been scripted, and they are being tested as we speak.
     
  • Titanic Purification will be worked on soon: this will allow you to remove the corruption effects from items. An alternative way exists that will swap the corruption effects for a guaranteed socket !
     
  • The Azerite vendor has been updated, but tokens still need to be fixed: reminder that unlike the last season change this time you will NOT keep your titan residuum so don't mind spending it now !
     
  • The reworked Auction House will be fully working!
     
  • Some older contents received a bit of love, but this part is still a work in progress, so we're keeping it a surprise for now !

As you can see, things have evolved since last time, but there is still quite a lot of work to be done especially on the testing side since a client update induces a lot of generic changes: we want to make sure that your player experience is improved upon release, meaning everything that works now needs to be working, alongside all of the new content we'll bring !

For those reasons, we still cannot give you any estimated date of release yet, but we're getting closer every day, and doing our best to make it a successful and enjoyable release ! As a reminder, if you wish to help testing you could do so by joining our Quality Assurance team: if you're interested, or have any question feel free to contact Astagan#6584 or Tarkkhbeast#8316 / Beastial, respectively Head and Admin in charge of the BFA QA. You can both find them on our public discord.

Thank you for your patience and fidelity,
The Firestorm Team
