Since the release of SunwellCore, more and more Wrath of The Lich King private servers are considering to migrate from TrinityCore 3.3.5 to a SunwellCore-based solution. This article will introduce the key differences between TrinityCore (branch 3.3.5) and AzerothCore (the open source SunwellCore-based project).Continue reading
A new PR for TrinityCore authored by kvipka introduced several improvements to the Blink mage spell:
- blink in abyss
- blink by path ( rechecking each step )
- where player can walk – blink will available there
- implemented check on dynamic objects ( locked doors, etc… )
- implemented total path of blink
The 6.x branch of TrinityCore has been created almost 11 months ago and according to the TrinityCore forum download counter, the 3.3.5 is still the most used branch by the TrinityCore community.
In fact, all of the download counters (week, month and year) are showing that the 3.3.5 database has (the more or less) twice of the downloads of the 6.x one.
CMaNGOS and TrinityCore have a great feature that retail hasn’t, a true PvP statistical system.
It consists in two parts: a core modification and a web application.

Now there are two official branches, the stable 3.3.5 and the newest 6.x.
The 4.3.4 branch was not stable nor new, but the deletion of it caused malcontent and led to the creation of a separated repository at GitLab which aims to continue the development of the 4.3.4 game version. Behind it there are some TrinityCore DB developers:
The DB releases for 4.3.4 will be published in another repository located at GitHub:
If you are using TrinityCore, you can forget about importing the *.sql files one by one when you install/update your core.
This will save a lot of time to TrinityCore users and simplify a lot the installation process. However, it is still disabled by default and has to be enabled by editing the worldserver.conf file, in the “UPDATE SETTINGS” category.
In order to set up the world database in a fresh TrinityCore installation, you will have just to download and import the latest release of the TDB database and enable the automatic updater. Then you can run your worldserver daemon and it will do the rest: it will update the world database, importing all the sql/updates/world/*.sql files. If you are using the 6.x branch, the same is for the hotfixes database. When needed, it will also update automatically the characters and auth database.
Happy time-saving and thanks Naios for this great change!
