World of Warcraft Returning to TBC
During the opening day of BlizzConline 2021, Blizzard Entertainment confirmed the upcoming World of Warcraft classic servers set in The Burning Crusade. The Burning Crusade is the first expansion for WoW that released way back in 2007 and soon fans of the original expansion will be able to experience it in all its glory through official Blizzard servers once again. World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is available right now for PC and Mac.
There are tons of caveats surrounding the release of World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade classic servers, with Blizzard allowing the transfer of some characters from existing Classic servers to the new TBC servers, a free level 58 to delve directly into the Outlands with (complete with dungeon blues and greens) and WoW fans can even have their cake while eating it as a character can be copied for the new Classic servers while retaining the original character that already exists on WoW Classic servers.
Just like the current World of Warcraft Classic servers, the content will be drip-fed to The Burning Crusade servers as well. The servers will launch with the Karazhan, Gruul’s Lair, and Magtheridon’s Lair raids, while Serpentshrine Cavern, Tempest Keep, Zul’Aman, Black Temple, Mount Hyjal, and Sunwell Plateau. While Mount Hyjal originally released with TBC, Blizzard Entertainment confirmed that the decision was made to release it later based on dungeon attunements locking players out of it at launch anyway.
