Argent Dawn (Europe) is a European RP realm. Realm time is the same as Paris, or UTC+1 (UTC+2 during Daylight Savings). To further explain this, 12:00 noon in London would be 13:00 realm time (Paris,) and 14:00 in Istanbul.

The Argent Dawn for which the realm is named after, is an organisation of Holy Light zealots. Whilst the Argent Dawn are not as extreme as the Scarlet Crusade, they are known for their aggressive stance against the Burning Legion and undead Scourge.

As a roleplaying realm, Argent Dawn is subject to special rules that do not apply on Normal or PvP realms. New players are expected to adhere to these rules, as they are enforced by Blizzard. These rules include (but are not limited to):

  • You must use a roleplaying name (no abusive language, ThreeWordNames or movie references.)
  • You must not go Out of Character (OOC) in /say /yell or /emote.
  • You must not disrupt or harass roleplayers at roleplaying events.

Further information about the Argent Dawn realm can be broken down into three categories:

History of Argent Dawn (Europe)

At the launch of World of Warcraft in Europe, Argent Dawn was one of the first European roleplaying realms, the other being Earthen Ring. Argent Dawn was officially opened on February 11th, 2005EU_English_Realms_Info and has since celebrated it's second year in service. Players on Argent Dawn were offered a free transfer to Steamwheedle Cartel on January 9th, 2006EU_English_Realms_Migration.

In season one of the Arena Ladder, Argent Dawn was noted in the World of Warcraft Armory Hall of Fame for not having a single team in the top ten for any of the three categories of the Bloodlust battlegroup.

Whilst all realms share one common storyline and history, they all deviate slightly because of player created storylines and content. Every single realm is theoretically an alternative world; where the timeline, whilst having key points (eg. Blizzard-created events,) still has unique Player-created events, stories and adventures that only exist on that single realm. This makes each realm special in it's own right, and Argent Dawn (Europe) is no exception.

Communities of the Dawn

Players on Argent Dawn are encouraged to create small scale and realm-wide communities that help to foster a good roleplaying environment with an inclusion of all players.

Many people consider Argent Dawn to be one of the premiere roleplaying realms in the World of Warcraft game. It is unquestionable that Argent Dawn (Europe) is home to many excellent roleplayers, and that the players in general are working towards a strong and friendly community. However, the players must stay strong and work together (welcoming new players) if a community atmosphere is to become fruitful. The community is also victim to a split between the individual opinions of the many roleplayers. A case here would be that people want to keep their own roleplay traditional, whereas others want their's as well. An agreement does not seem to be within reach, and many roleplayers take up their fights to the public forums in attempt to force out those with different opinions.

A good way to check on the current status of communities, groups and guilds for RP would be looking at the realm forum, asking in public channels (such as GuildRecruitment) or simply scouting around.

Public Channels

The following channels are open to any player on Argent Dawn and are primarily concerned with helping the community to some description. If you know of any additional public channels, feel free to add them to this list. To join a new channel, type /join ChannelName.

  • OSR - Alliance-based. For players over level 60 looking for PUGs to old raiding instances (eg. Zul'Gurub, Onyxia, etc.)
  • AntiHorde - Alliance-based. For players looking for a group to participate in Player versus Player.
  • LFRP - The Horde and Alliance LFRP contain roleplaying and lore discussions, which have been increased with the coming of Wrath of the Lich King.
  • MCCeless - A Horde raiding community. Players over level 60 looking for pre-TBC raiding instances are here looking for PUGs.

The Argent Archives

Community Resources

Tabard of the Argent Dawn

Argent Dawn has become a very creative community with many people creating resources, projects, artwork, stories and beyond, all in the name of or relation to Argent Dawn. It is those contributions that help to create and inspire a community to build upon the realm, and the resources in this section are in no way a completely exhaustive list of every contribution ever made.

  • The Argent Dawn Content Wiki was a collection of articles specific to the Argent Dawn (Europe) realm, including official Warcraft lore and player generated content. The wiki appears to be down at this point in time.
  • The Snap Sisters have been providing a Gnomish insight into the world of Azeroth for a long time, including their excellent photography skills. Their site is primarily a roleplaying weblog with photographs of famous events and locations. The site has unfortunately not been updated since late 2008.
  • Chronicles of the Flaming Ruby was a regularly updated comic based on the World of Warcraft. The comic is the brainchild of Chidori and frequently featured members of the Argent Dawn community. Unlike many other Warcraft comics, Chidori's are hand drawn, giving them a much more personal touch. The site now appears down.
