Burning Crusade Classic Patch Notes
Version 2.5.4
March 22, 2022

New 10 player raid: Zul’Aman
Defeat the devious warlord Zul’jin at the seat of power of the Amani trolls and stop him from exacting his deadly vengeance.

  • Raid bosses: 6 (Nalorakk, Akil’zon, Jan’alai, Halazzi, Hex Lord Malacrass, Zul’jin.)
  • Level: 70
  • Location:Ghostlands, Eastern Kingdoms

There is no attunement required to enter the instance. Zul’Aman has a 3-day reset lockout.

Timed challenge: Amani War Bear

Zul’jin and his lieutenants are holding several hostages in Zul’Aman. When you enter the instance, the Amani will begin preparations to terminate them. If you defeat one of Zul’jin’s lieutenants and reach a hostage before time runs out, you’ll be rewarded with an additional piece of loot and a timer extension—a brief stay of execution. Rescue all hostages, and your raid will be rewarded with one Amani War Bear epic mount.

Oof, a little early IMO.


Never post again… Elitist


Thanks for the update Kaivax :kissing_heart:


Now I do not need an addon for this, right?


Absolutely not. Why keep that annoying attunement 2 months after the content is released???


are the attunements removed today with the update or when the raid releases on Thursday?


Noob here, I tried googling but what does this mean?


Not really. Everyone that has been here is all ready attuned.

Removing attunements makes sense if you want players to return to the game.


attunements should be required. if you want to play this game, you should have to play this game. if you don’t like it, play a different game.


so we won’t be seeing you in wolk I assume?


still got this message when try to login “An updated version of World of Warcraft is available. Please launch the Battle.net app to download the update.”

they screwed up the launcher again. I think it was 2 or 3 weeks back I had an issue with the launcher and I ended up having to delete it and reinstall it from the battle.net site. Hopefully this issue is as easy to fix.

heroics should be noticeably easier. I don’t have values for you but if you have experience doing heroics in the current version of tbc and you do some heroics from today onward, you should feel that they get a lot easier.


I’m definitely in the “removing the attunements from BT and Hyjal is a little early here” but on the other hand, I have two alts about to hit 70 and now I don’t have to do anything other than the Hyjal attunement for the ring. Blessed. That being said, if you haven’t done the quests on one character, you really should. I just wish Blizzard had removed the attunements for people who completed them on one character, and if it is your first character, you still need to get it done. I think that would have been a good balance. The quest is cool, you should do it anyway.


Fighting the good fight against that toxicity problem I see…


Will Zul’Aman reset 3 days after the Thursday release, or will it reset on Friday to follow the same schedule ZG and AQ20 are currently resetting on? (ZG and AQ20 just reset this morning so their next reset is on Friday)

It keeps people interested in running T5 content. BC, unlike all the following expansions, had all raid tiers maintain relevance well into t6. It doesn’t seem right for people to jump directly from gruul/mag/za pugs into Hyjal/BT.

The very small barrier of t5 completion offered some level of assurance that the members of your PUG group (because this isn’t a relevant discussion for guild runs) have at least raided something beyond Karahan.


Feels a little early to remove attunements, we’re in the 9th lockout, T5 didn’t have attunements lifted until lockout 12 or 13.
