Upcoming Content Unlocks for WoW Classic

With the WoW Classic PTR now open for business, we have a test environment where we can dig into some of the content that is coming soon to WoW Classic.

To be specific, our plan is to open Arathi Basin on all realms the week of March 10. At that time, we will also kick off the Battleground Holidays system.

We plan to open Zul’Gurub and release the fabled Dragons of Nightmare in April.

We’ll let you know as soon as we have an exact time that those content unlocks will occur.

Thank you!

AB is coming a little sooner than expected based on the vanilla timeline, but ZG is showing up roughly on schedule.

This one is exactly in line with the Vanilla time line, but let’s not get facts in the way of a witch hunt.

“At that time, we will also kick off the Battleground Holidays system.” Does that mean the calendar is coming out?

Slow it down geez, this is gonna be like a 14 month launch -> naxx timeline, way too fast

BWL release was inline with vanilla? Lets adjust for that timeline and yes ZG is now early.

Interesting news. Can I offer up some feedback? The timeline is now moving faster than the last iteration of the Nost core, Northdale. Unless you guys plan on stretching out P5, BWL gear will become the “bis” of Classic because you’re releasing without ample time to farm said gear from other raids.

Which maybe is what you guys want so there is a bit more of a difficulty curve, whatever it may be, to AQ and Naxx. It’s a curious thought nonethelss. What’s the rush? Is it just a perception or is there a planned lull after P4?

I’m imagining people will get tired of ZG due to its frequency very quick, which may cause a rushed reaction from you guys for AQ? Is it a fair call out/concern to say that this feels rushed?

Thank you! This will fix the issue of people having issues in BWL - ZG catchup gear + enchants + buffs!

AB premades. AB PREMADES. Open it on the PTR please so we can atleast get the bugs/exploits fixed before you release it. The main ones being the fence jump at the start - rooftop safespotting flag caps.

Do you know what version of the ZG Head/Leg enchants that will come with release. Will you be using Dolls/Tokens or will Hakkari Idols come with Phase 4?

Thank you.

Just go check on the PTR. It’s up with AB, ZG, etc. all on it.
