This article is an information page for the Kel'Thuzad realm (server)

The contents herein are entirely player made and in no way represent official World of Warcraft history or occurrences which are accurate for all realms. The information and events listed are of an independent nature and applied for roleplaying, fictional, speculative, or opinions from a limited playerbase only.

Kel'Thuzad is one of the original 43 PvP servers that were opened upon the release of World of Warcraft, and is named after the lich Kel'Thuzad. The server runs at Mountain Standard Time.

The realm has a player base intensely active in both PVE and PVP play and currently has an Alliance to Horde ratio of approximately 3.2:1. This causes some balance issues in world PvP and events, such as Wintergrasp.


Kel'Thuzad has a long history of server issues and high population. Months of crashes, lag, and downtime were mostly resolved when the server was transferred to a new hardware cluster. Kel'Thuzad has remained a high population server since its launch, despite several periods where Blizzard opened free character transfers off of the server.

Some notable events in Kel'Thuzad's history include:

  • Exodus scored a US First/World Second kill on M'uru, putting Kel'thuzad back on the map for PVE progression. They also put out one of the first videos for it. They also were the fifth guild world wide to kill Kil'jaden in TBC.
  • A Pick-up group (Horde Side) which formed multiple times a week under the leadership of Shiektal successfully defeated all of Blackwing Lair and Ahn'Qiraj 40 up to C'thun's trash mobs every week. Nearly 100 players showed up weekly to the meeting spot to get an invite.
  • Opening the gates of Ahn'Qiraj. Kel'Thuzad was one of the first 30 servers (and the 11th PVP server) to open the gates.
  • Horde players from the guild Fortis kited [Kazzak the Supreme|Lord Kazzak] from the Blasted Lands into Stormwind City. This led to a hotfix by Blizzard preventing kiting Kazzak.
  • Massive PVP zergs in the Hillsbrad Foothills after the implementation of the honor system which included more than 400 players.
  • The Goon Squad and Pacifist guilds teaming to kill Onyxia for the first time on the server. Their videos (including a 1% wipe) and strategies were studied by thousands of other WoW players.
  • Several multi-guild attacks on the leaders of capital cities launched by both Alliance and Horde. The attacks involved hundreds of players. Which lead to numerous server crashes from both factions raiding cities.
  • The legendary Vidas rape by lvl 29 alts from Fortis.
