There has been some change in plans for World of Warcraft: Classic release by Blizzard. In the original plan, Blizzard was going to give World of Warcraft: Classic a total of four phases which were going to be built around the early raids in the MMOs.
However, after the company received the player feedbacks and discussed it internally, they have decided to extend it to six phases.
When is the World of Warcraft: Classic releasing?
The World of Warcraft: Classic is releasing in the summer. This update is going to bring back some of the game’s earliest days’ stuff. You will get the patch 1.2, which is going to be followed by another patch with 1.3 and 1.4 respectively. There has been no date announced for the updates as of yet.
What can you expect from the World of Warcraft: Classic update?
You can expect changes made to the cadence of raids. But, as you will get the first phase of World of Warcraft: Classic, it is going to have Onyxia’s Lair and Molten Core. However, Dire Mal is going to push back a little as the loot might affect the progression which is made in the other raids. However, there is a lot more shuffling done by Blizzard.
In the original plans of the company, the raids were supposed to be more staggered. For instance, when you would squeeze multiple patches with each other you would have ended up with Zul’Gurub and Blackwing Lair which would appear together. This is because it does not reflect how was the vanilla WoW really like. In the later phase, you will find the Zul’Gurub.
The release schedule of World Of Warcraft: Classic raids is as follows
Phase 1 Molten Core Onyxia Maraudon Phase 2 Dire Maul Azuregos Kazzak Phase 3 Blackwing Lair Darkmoon Faire Darkmoon deck drops begin Phase 4 Zul’Gurub Green Dragons Phase 5 Ahn’Qiraj War Effort begins Ahn’Qiraj raid opens when the war effort dictates Dungeon loot reconfiguration: Tier 0.5 Dungeon gear, Relics, drop rates and location changes Phase 6 Naxxramas Scourge Invasion
