WoW Classic 1.13.3 Patch Notes

With scheduled weekly maintenance in each region, we will update WoW Classic to version 1.13.3, which includes several updates to the game. We will deploy this patch with weekly maintenance starting at 7:00 a.m. PST (10:00 a.m. EST) on Tuesday, December 10.

World of Warcraft Classic Version 1.13.3


The fields of battle are open, and the Alliance and Horde are set to clash over Warsong Gulch and Alterac Valley.

Warsong Gulch is a 10v10 game of capture-the-flag, with each faction attempting to carry their opponents’ flag all the way back to their own base, while preventing the opposition from doing the same. Players fight in level-ranges in Warsong Gulch: 10-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and level 60.

Alterac Valley is a large 40v40 tug-of-war zone, with many quests, objectives, and areas of interest. All players at level 51 and higher are placed into a single level-range in this epic struggle, with rewards via reputation as well as quest rewards. Some Alterac Valley rewards are highly sought, such as Don Julio’s Band, Lei of the Lifegiver, and Ice Threaded Arrows/Bullets.

The Alliance entrance to Warsong Gulch is in Silverwing Grove in Ashenvale Forest, and the Horde entrance is near Mor’shan Base Camp in the northern Barrens. The Alliance and Horde entrances to Alterac Valley are in northern Hillsbrad Foothills. Both Warsong Gulch and Alterac Valley can also be entered by speaking with the appropriate battlemaster in your capital city.

Battlegrounds are cross-realm, which means you’ll fight alongside allies and against opponents from all of the realms in your region.

Elemental Invasions

Across Kalimdor, Blazing, Thundering, Watery, and Whirling Invaders now occasionally appear in Un’goro Crater, Azshara, Winterspring, and Silithus respectively. The elementals appear to be seeing just how far into these territories they can penetrate before being beaten back by the forces of the Horde or the Alliance.


The key button in your micro menu now opens your Keyring, an additional bag for keys only, that scales up to hold up to 12 keys.

Additional Updates

  • This patch includes client support for the Paid Character Transfer service, which may be enabled at a future date.
  • The World of Warcraft Classic executable file on your PC has been renamed.
  • Bug fixes.

Oh my, it’s actually a patch. And a keyring is coming with it. It’s happening!


And so it begins


“It’s never going to happen though”- Horde on these forums.


Hah i was right. Figured this was why we were getting the long maintenance.

Yes, posts on this board have repeatedly BEGGED them to offer a paid character transfer. I personally hope Classic does make a buck- so they will be sure to offer TBC and WOTLK servers.


Are you ready for every pvp server to be 90% of one faction?


Now I know I’m asking to see the more cynical side of the forums here (hell I’m pretty cynical myself), but do you really think after the free transfer fiasco and the Flamelash situation, they won’t end up being extra mindful of restrictions on a paid service? I certainly think they will, although I’ll admit I may be more optimistic than I should be there.


no reason not to, twice the people to raid with, no competition, and xrealm bgs so you can still queue and get r14. ded game world.


To quote the many many many folks who offered their sage advice on the matter of dealing with PvP on a PvP server:


Should be interesting how it rolls out though.


Better than holding people hostage with no way out outside of re-leveling 1-60, which few will do. At any rate, paid transfers WERE a part of Vanilla, whether a particular person likes it or not.




Thanks for the update!

I’ll be pleasantly surprised if they actually do put mindful restrictions on the transfers but I wouldn’t put any money on it.


So when will you open BWL?

We’ll have an exact timestamp for this content unlock to share with you in early December.


PAID CHARACTER transfer woot enable it next week please


I know it says that the cross-realm BGs will be enabled for servers in your region, but does this mean that east/west coast servers will be separate groups?

That seems like the most sensible way to split up the battlegroups to me.


I think “region” usually refers to NA, EU, etc.


Are cross realm BGs going to be seperated into battlegroups? If so is there a list available?
