Acherus is an IRC theorycrafting channel for Death Knights. It was formed in the summer of 2011 by Fengore (EU-Earthern Ring) and is currently moderated by myself, Tsukiyuri (US-Dragonmaw) and Heartless (US-Gnomeregan).
Acherus is over a year old and has become a recognisable force, both in the Death Knight and wider WoW theorycrafting communities. We are home to some of the smartest and most talented players in the game, both theory and play-wise. This includes all 3 of the current EJ DK OPs, top ranking players and several DK sim designers. The channel has a healthy mix of both US and EU players.
We operate under the belief that intelligent discussion about the class and game mechanics in a Live forum can result in better theorycraft making it to paper, along with the many benefits of having a community to support and contribute to said theorycraft.
We collaborate frequently when it comes to testing out mechanics, sharing results, sims and posting on various forums. Indeed, we can proudly state that a large portion of the feedback and conversation surrounding Death Knights during the Mists of Pandaria Beta was driven by us.
We welcome newcomers to our channel, both veteran and relatively newer players, in the hopes of being able to widen our circle and bring in new perspectives and ideas. We encourage in depth discussion, not only of Death Knights but of WoW in general. It's OK to idle in the channel at times, and you aren't expected to prepare a thesis before entry.
We expect that all visitors will adhere to a simple code of etiquette, which entails being polite to and respecting fellow participants, not linking inappropriate material in the main chat channel and avoiding flame wars (both starting and furthering).
The channel is located on the Coldfront server, and can be accessed by a number of means including:
1. www.mibbit.com/chat (Select "Coldfront" from the list of servers and type in #Acherus as your selected channel)
2. http://www.coldfront.net/tiramisu/ (Type in /join #Acherus once the system logs in to Coldfront)
3. http://sonofalich.com/?page_id=1183 (Direct access from Heartless's personal blog)
We look forward to seeing new faces in Acherus soon!
