Burning Crusade Classic is a World of Warcraft Classic expansion that recreates what it was like over a decade ago to first step through the Dark Portal and into the shattered realms of Outland.
It’s here that players will face iconic WoW villains like Illidan, Kael’Thas, and then all the nerds on the opposing faction who raced to level 70 and got flying mounts before you so they could attack and gank you for hours.
Unlike the Classic, Blizzard is making some significant changes this time. But don’t worry; everything you need to know about the Classic expansion is here.
When will Burning Crusade Classic be released?
When Blizzard announced Burning Crusade Classic at BlizzCon 2021, it only confirmed that the expansion would be released later this year. We don’t yet have an exact release date.
Having said that, Blizzard has confirmed that a beta for Burning Crusade Classic will begin very soon, and you can already sign up. Because the beta will most likely begin in the coming months, Burning Classic will most likely be released later this summer or early fall.
How much will it cost?
Burning Classic, like the Classic, is included in a $15 monthly World of Warcraft subscription. You won’t have to pay anything additional unless you want to purchase a level boost or clone your character so it can continue playing on vanilla servers.
What to look forward to in the game?
-The level limit has been increased to 70.
-A whole new continent to discover, with some stunning and memorable locations.
-Mounts that fly
-Some of the best raids in World of Warcraft history.
-With the addition of arenas, the PVP experience becomes much more focused.
-Blood elves and draenei are two new races.
-Paladins can be played by Horde players, while shamans can be played by Alliance players.
Burning Crusade Classic and WoW Classic will be two separate games
Burning Crusade Classic and WoW Classic will be two separate games. It’s entirely up to you which one you want to play on. When the Burning Classic is released later this year, every player will have to choose whether to continue on to the Burning Crusade or remain in the Classic, where the level limit is 60.
All current WoW Classic servers will be carried over to the Burning Crusade, while players who want to stick with Classic will be transferred to a new set of vanilla servers where they can continue playing WoW Classic. Blizzard has also stated that you can clone a character for a fee.
The mechanics of Burning Classic will be similar to those of World of Warcraft Classic. The expansion will be divided into phases that are similar to the live updates that Burning Crusade received in 2007. Blizzard will introduce new raids, dungeons, and features every few months to simulate a new phase.
