  • WoW Classic: Wrath of the Lich King Release Date

    Like the original WOTLK version, Death Knights will start at level 55. However, players do not need to have a character that is at least level 55 as they originally did.

    Announcement from Blizzard:

    Heroes of the Alliance and Horde fought against evil in Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms, against the demons of the Burning Legion in Outland, and against each other - unaware of the looming threat in the vast and icy continent of Northrend Approaching.

    Sitting in the ominous Icecrown Citadel, the Lich King Arthas Menethil seeks to take the world to himself - a plan that threatens all life in Azeroth. Heroes of the Alliance and Horde must contend with an evil creature who dares to claim to be the only true king of Azeroth...and seek to plunder all life from the world.

    Later this year, you'll once again explore creepy lands, breach Icecrown Citadel, and stop the Lich King's nefarious efforts. Only the toughest will be able to challenge the Lich King and end his reign of terror in the re-release of the 2008 expansion.

    Just as it rocked WoW® in its original release, Wrath of the Lich King Classic Edition™ will delight veterans and newcomers alike with a host of improved features and content:

    The Frigid North - Heroes will begin their journey in one of Northrend's two regions - the Borean Tundra or the Howling Fjord - and explore some of the most epic landscapes and the most beloved in all of Warcraft. Welcome to the storyline before breaking the Lich King's throne of power. ice cap.
    Rise of the Death Knight - Available to both factions, starting at level 55, the Death Knight - World of Warcraft's first hero class - harnesses the power of darkness to help fight the evil that threatens Azeroth. While death knights are limited to one per server and require a character level 55 on that server to create, in Wrath Classic we're bypassing the player's first death knight requirement.
    New Class - Inscriptions - This new class allows players to write arcane runes that modify spell and ability attributes (cooldowns, damage, etc.), as well as craft powerful trinkets and off-hand items.
    Achievements Unlocked - Achievements are coming to World of Warcraft Classic, offering new rewards for players' exploits and achievements.
    Dungeons & Raids – Relive 5-player dungeons like Azjol-Nerub and Eliminate Stratholme, and lay siege to Naxxramas in 25-player or 10-player raids - taking them down in previous 40-player raids An update to the original iteration expands World of Warcraft.
    Included with existing WoW subscriptions - Like previous WoW Classic editions, anyone with a WoW subscription can also play Wrath of the Lich King Classic Edition for free.

    Additionally, we want to provide a better experience for our classic players, old and new, with the following changes:

    Level 70 Boost - The level cap will be increased to level 80, and we're introducing a level 70 boost so those who haven't played the Burning Crusade classic but want to play Rage with friends or explore Northrend can do so right away. This enhancement is available on every account and can be used on any class except death knights.
    No Dungeon Finder - Players rediscovering Wrath of the Lich King Classic will not find the Dungeon Finder feature originally added in patch 3.3.5. We've heard from the Classic community that the importance of social bonding is a big part of what makes Classic a go-to game, and we agree.
    Individual Arena Ratings – Throughout The Burning Crusade Classic, our PvP community has made it clear that they prefer the flexibility of individual ratings to being tied to a fixed team, so we're removing Arena teams in Rage Classic .
    Barbershop Improvements - Since the first addition of the Barbershop in Rage, World of Warcraft has added additional customization options, including some that were originally only available as a paid service. Instead of reverting to the real 2008 behavior, we'll be incorporating all of these improvements in Wrath Classic.
