What are we?

Menethil is a cross-faction realm where we want to improve the experience of World of Warcraft's most popular expansion and patch release: Wrath of the King King (3.3.5) in various ways through many quality-of-life changes, including game design changes if deemed reasonable. To name one minor example of this, The Tribunal of Ages event in 5-Player dungeon Halls of Stone has been redesigned to have a much faster pace.

Many changes have been the result of feedback and suggestions from the founding community thus far, and we believe that there's always room for improvement in all areas of the game. Such changes will be ongoing as time goes on. We read every piece of constructive feedback and suggestion posted on all platforms.

Our team is in constant communication with the community with no imaginary barriers between them. Each player on Menethil has the ability to contribute in shaping the realm into what they want it to be. The bugtracker will never be ignored, and no reports go unacknowledged.

You cannot purchase combat gear, achievements, titles or prestigious mounts on our donation or voting store, with the exception of heirloom items for leveling. Should you wish to contribute to server costs, you'll be rewarded cosmetically or with a level 80 character boost, bypassing the leveling process.

Regards to the Heroic Dungeons, adjustments will be made, and generally the idea is to bring dungeon difficulty just a little bit due to increased gear access over the standard version of the game.
