Blizzcon 2018 – World of Warcraft overlook

World of Warcraft Classic

First off, Classic will be released summer 2019 and will be included in your normal WoW Subscription. No extra fees!
Staged content was confirmed. We will start our journey from patch 1.12 which was the last patch before then first expansion Burning Crusade. The big feature this patch introduced was being able to play Battlegrounds with people from other realms.
Below is the planned content release/update order:

Stage 1: MC, Onyxia, Dire Maul, Kazzak, Azuregos

Stage 2: Blackwing Lair, BG & PvP Rewards, Zul’Gurub

Stage 3: Ahn’Qiraj, Tier 0.5, Silithus Content, Green Dragons

Stage 4: Naxxramas, Scourge Invasion

Looking at this, I’m sure I’m not the only one excited at finally being able to grab the old T3 set, and for the hardcore players… maybe even the weapon with a legendary reputation, the Corrupted Ashbringer. On a side note, items acquired on Classic will not be transmoggable on Live.

A new in-game cinematic was recently released.

The conflagration of war continues to burn brightly between the Horde and Alliance. Even as the Horde continues to entrench themselves within Darkshore all is not quiet on the warfront.
