WoW Classic Realms Population Report: August 31st

Recommended Posts

5PEXfn6.jpg

Four new Classic realms have launched since our latest population report and queue times are still very long despite Blizzard's effort to decrease queue times by increasing the max realm capacity on all servers.

You can find the latest information in our WoW Classic Realm Population Hub!

Welcome to our final population report for this month. Blizzard opened two new Classic realms in the EU and the US yesterday. All are currently sitting at Low population. Players are now deeply invested in their characters and it will be hard to force them move to other servers without offering free server transfers from crowded realms.

Long queue times continue to plague Full servers. Logging out literally means you won't be able to play the game for up to 5 hours on Firemaw, Golemagg, and Shazzrah.

I just would like to ask Blizzards: "Don't you guys like Euros" 😊 Otherwise it's hard to understand why they keep European servers at full  without adding even an option to play on less crowded one. It's clear that their greedy attitude won't let them open free transfers between servers which would ease up the situation a lot and would generate a lot more happy customers and logically way more long term income, still they seem to be short sighted and extremely greedy to understand this. But if they are really so greedy they should at least open servers to play on. May be they are not only greedy, but not smart enough...

      Dire Maul is now live and we've updated our guide section with the Dire Maul Dungeon Hub, which contains links to individual guides for all wings (North, East, West), quests found in the zone, the Quel'Serrar weapon questline, and the Shen'dralar reputation.
      Dire Maul is now open ahead of Phase 2 launch; check out our Dire Maul Dungeon Hub to get started! Below is the official preview of the dungeon by Blizzard.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Built thousands of years ago to house the kaldorei’s arcane secrets, the formerly great city of Eldre’Thalas now lies in ruin, writhing with warped twisted forces. Competing covens once fought for control of Dire Maul’s corrupted energy, but they have since settled into uneasy truces, choosing to exploit the power within their own territories rather than continue to battle over the entire complex.
      Located in Feralas, Dire Maul is a sprawling 5-player dungeon encompassed within three wings. Adventurers can explore its ancient corridors for fun and profit and even infiltrate the entrenched ogre tribe on a Tribute Run to claim powerful rewards and buffs. You can also battle your faction-mates in the free-for-all outdoor PVP arena “The Maul” within the Broken Commons outside of the dungeon. It’s a great way to hone your PvP skills among friends.
      HOW TO GET THERE:
      The closest flight path for Horde players is Camp Mojache. From there, then run west until reaching a road in the High Wilderness that forks to the North. Alliance players will fly into Feathermoon Stronghold as their closest flight path then run east until reaching a road in the High Wilderness that forks to the North. Bosses: 16
      Level Range: 54-60 (Recommended 55-60)
      QUESTING
      There are many quests available to undertake within Dire Maul beginning at level 54, but it’s recommended that players reach level 55 to have a higher chance of success. Dire Maul is a particularly dangerous dungeon for the unprepared and you’ll need dependable teamwork to make your way through all three of its wings.
      GETTING KEYED UP
      If you want to go further than the East Wing of Dire Maul, you’ll need to procure a couple of additional keys, have a rogue with a high enough lockpick skill, use a Large Seaforium Charge, or use a Truesilver Skeleton Key (which can be created by blacksmiths) to make your way into the two additional wings.
      To get a key to the remaining areas of the dungeon, you’ll need to track down (and chase down) the imp Pusillin in the East Wing who can drop Crescent Keys. He’ll lead you on a merry chase, but don’t be fooled when you think you have him cornered at last.
      You’ll need an additional key to make it all the way into King Gordok’s room as well— the Gordok Inner Door Key. This key can be looted from Guard Mol’dar in the Gor’dok Commons.
      Dire Maul East
      Warpwood Quarter
      Lethtendris (Level 57)
      Dire Maul’s warped energy drew Lethtendris from afar, giving her an unbearable craving for arcane magic. Using the sinews and ligaments of sacrificial victims, she constructed a web to siphon, the corrupt power out of the east wing. To her delight, she discovered that the device has the capacity to gather vast reserves of overwhelming strength, enough to destroy all her enemies.
      Loot: Lethtendris’s Wand, Band of Vigor, Quel’dorai Channeling Rod, Felhide Cap, Runecloth, Dried King Bolete, Lethtendris’s Web (quest item), Libram of Rapidity, Libram of Focus, Garona: A Study on Stealth and Treachery (quest item), Codex of Defense (quest item), The Arcanist’s Cookbook (quest item), The Light and How to Swing It (quest item), Harnessing Shadows (quest item), The Greatest Race of Hunters (quest item), Holy Bologna: What the Light Won’t Tell You (quest item), Frost Shock and You (quest item), The Emerald Dream (quest item), Foror’s Compendium of Dragon Slaying (quest item).
      The Shrine of Eldretharr
      Alzzin the Wildshaper (Level 58)
      Alzzin the Wildshaper seeks nothing less than the total corruption of Feralas, but until he discovered the Shrine of Eldretharr in Dire Maul, he had little success. With the power of enslaved ancients at his command, Alzzin concentrated the vitality of the surrounding forest into his lair, allowing him to manipulate it at will Loot: Gloves of Restoration, Fiendish Machete, Energized Chestplate, Ring of Demonic Guile, Ring of Demonic Potency, Merciful Greaves, Energetic Rod, Razor Gauntlets, Whipvine Cord, Shadewood Cloak, Runecloth, Libram of Rapidity, Libram of Focus, Garona: A Study on Stealth and Treachery (quest item), Codex of Defense (quest item), The Arcanist’s Cookbook (quest item), The Light and How to Swing It (quest item), Harnessing Shadows (quest item), The Greatest Race of Hunters (quest item), Holy Bologna: What the Light Won’t Tell You(quest item), Frost Shock and You (quest item), The Emerald Dream (quest item), Foror’s Compendium of Dragon Slaying (quest item).
      Zevrim Thornhoof (Level 56-57)
      Desperate to show his worth to the Burning Legion, Zevrim Thornhoof told his master she could enslave the formidable ancients who still roamed Dire Maul. When his own power proved insufficient, Thornhoof turned to other living creatures for additional energy, butchering them atop his sacrificial altar and harvesting their essence in their final, agonizing moments.
      Loot: Gloves of Shadowy Mist, Clever Hat, Helm of Awareness, Fervent Helm, Satyr’s Bow, Dried King Bolete, Runecloth, Libram of Rapidity, Libram of Focus, Garona: A Study on Stealth and Treachery (quest item), Codex of Defense (quest item), The Arcanist’s Cookbook (quest item), The Light and How to Swing It (quest item), Harnessing Shadows (quest item), The Greatest Race of Hunters (quest item), Holy Bologna: What the Light Won’t Tell You (quest item), Frost Shock and You (quest item), The Emerald Dream (quest item), Foror’s Compendium of Dragon Slaying (quest item).
      Hydrospawn (Level 57)
      When the satyr Zevrim Thornhoof sought to control the elementals in Dire Maul, he focused on Hydrospawn, who calmly resided in the pool beneath his altar. As he performed his profane sacrificial rituals, the elemental grew agitated and restless, striking out at Thornhoof’s demonic minions. As the years passed, Thornhoof used his victims’ energies to whip Hydrospawn into an unbridled fury, little by little binding its will to the satyr’s commands.
      Loot: Core of Elements, Elemental Water, Globe of Water, Breakwater Legguards, Riptide Shoes, Tempest Talisman, Waterspout Boots, Waveslicer, Essence of Water, Ace of Elements, Hydrospawn Essence (quest item), Libram of Rapidity, Libram of Focus, Garona: A Study on Stealth and Treachery (quest item), Codex of Defense (quest item), The Arcanist’s Cookbook (quest item), The Light and How to Swing It (quest item), Harnessing Shadows (quest item), The Greatest Race of Hunters (quest item), Holy Bologna: What the Light Won’t Tell You (quest item), Frost Shock and You (quest item), The Emerald Dream (quest item), Foror’s Compendium of Dragon Slaying (quest item).
      Dire Maul West
      Prison of Immol'thar
      Immol’thar (Level 61)
      In a desperate bid to restore the power and immortality they lost when the Well of Eternity was destroyed, the Shen’dralar summoned a demon into the western wing of Dire Maul and captured him within a force field, allowing them to use the void terror’s energy for their own spells. Unable to fight back or even move for nearly 10,000 years, Immol’thar could only watch and wait for the day he might break free and rend the flesh of his captors.
      Loot: Vigilance Charm, Blade of the New Moon, Quickdraw Gloves, Odious Greaves, Evil Eye Pendant, Bile-etched Spaulders, Robe of Everlasting Night, Cloak of the Cosmos, Eyestalk Cord, Demon Howl Wristguards, Vigilance Charm,  Libram of Rapidity, Libram of Focus, Garona: A Study on Stealth and Treachery (quest item), Codex of Defense (quest item), The Arcanist’s Cookbook (quest item), The Light and How to Swing It (quest item), Harnessing Shadows (quest item), The Greatest Race of Hunters (quest item), Holy Bologna: What the Light Won’t Tell You (quest item), Frost Shock and You (quest item), The Emerald Dream (quest item), Foror’s Compendium of Dragon Slaying (quest item).
      Prince Tortheldrin (Level 60-61)
      After the Well of Eternity’s destruction, Prince Tortheldrin maintained control over the surviving Shen’dralar by imprisoning a demon in the ruins of Eldre’Thalas and letting his subjects siphon its strength. The exposure to demonic power twisted Tortheldrin’s mind, and when the creature faltered, the prince ordered the deaths of many of his vassals so only he and his most fanatical followers would be left to enjoy the corrupt energy.
      Loot: Chestplate of Tranquility, Bracers of the Eclipse, Timeworn Mace, Silvermoon Leggings, Eldritch Reinforced Legplates, Fluctuating Cloak, Stoneshatter, Distracting Dagger, Emerald Flame Ring, Mind Carver, Runecloth, Libram of Rapidity, Libram of Focus, Garona: A Study on Stealth and Treachery (quest item), Codex of Defense (quest item), The Arcanist’s Cookbook (quest item), The Light and How to Swing It (quest item), Harnessing Shadows (quest item), The Greatest Race of Hunters (quest item), Holy Bologna: What the Light Won’t Tell You (quest item), Frost Shock and You (quest item), The Emerald Dream (quest item), Foror’s Compendium of DragonSlaying (quest item).
      Court of the Highborne
      Magister Kalendris (Level 59-60)
      When Prince Tortheldrin demanded the slaughter of the majority of his subjects, his most loyal lieutenants were tasked with executing his will. Magister Kalendris murdered many unsuspecting Shen’dralar without hesitation, but one of the doomed elves mortally wounded him during a destructive battle. Despite his demise, Kalendris’s spirit still roams Dire Maul as a defender of Tortheldrin’s rule.
      Loot: Amplifying Cloak, Magically Sealed Bracers, Mindtap Talisman, Flamescarred Shoulders, Elder Magus Pendant, Pattern: Big Bag of Enchantment, Runecloth, Libram of Rapidity, Libram of Focus, Garona: A Study on Stealth and Treachery (quest item), Codex of Defense (quest item), The Arcanist’s Cookbook (quest item), The Light and How to Swing It (quest item), Harnessing Shadows (quest item), The Greatest Race of Hunters (quest item), Holy Bologna: What the Light Won’t Tell You (quest item), Frost Shock and You (quest item), The Emerald Dream (quest item), Foror’s Compendium of Dragon Slaying (quest item).
      Capital Gardens
      Illyanna Ravenoak (Level 60)
      Illyanna Ravenoak, along with her faithful companion Ferra, was once Prince Tortheldrin’s most valued hunter, until she refused to carry out her leader’s order to execute her friends. As punishment, he killed Illyanna and her bear, but he used his demonic power to bind their spirits to their bodies, condemning them to remain in Dire Maul’s undead protectors.
      Loot: Bouquet of Red Roses, Well Balanced Axe, Gauntlets of Accuracy, Force of Imbued Gauntlets, Padre’s Trousers, Runecloth, Libram of Rapidity, Libram of Focus, Garona: A Study on Stealth and Treachery (quest item), Codex of Defense (quest item), The Arcanist’s Cookbook (quest item), The Light and How to Swing It (quest item), Harnessing Shadows (quest item), The Greatest Race of Hunters (quest item), Holy Bologna: What the Light Won’t Tell You (quest item), Frost Shock and You (quest item), The Emerald Dream (quest item), Foror’s Compendium of Dragon Slaying (quest item).
      Tendris Warpwood (Level 59-60)
      Tendris Warpwood was a staunch defender of Eldre’Thalas, his heart inexorably entwined with the fate of the city. When the Sundering Shattered the land, his resolve never wavered, but as corruption seeped into the ruins over the next 10,000 years, so too did it infect the ancient’s spirit.
      Loot: Savage Frond, Petrified Bark Shield, Stoneflower Staff, Tanglemoss Leggings, Warpwood Binding, Heart of the Wild, Libram of Rapidity, Libram of Focus, Garona: A Study on Stealth and Treachery (quest item), Codex of Defense (quest item), The Arcanist’s Cookbook (quest item), The Light and How to Swing It (quest item), Harnessing Shadows (quest item), The Greatest Race of Hunters (quest item), Holy Bologna: What the Light Won’t Tell You (quest item), Frost Shock and You (quest item), The Emerald Dream (quest item), Foror’s Compendium of Dragon Slaying (quest item).
      Dire Maul North
      Gordok Commons
      Guard Mol’dar (Level 58-59)
      Mol’dar is a zealously loyal guard from the Gordok ogres. He is convinced King Gordok gifted him with a pair of enchanted gauntlets that have enabled him to become his people’s arm-wrestling champion for six years running. In truth, King Gordok threw the powerful armor away: Mol’dar simply found it first.
      Loot: Gordok Inner Door Key, Ogre Warbeads (quest item), Gordok Shackle Key, Hyena Hide Belt, Robe of Combustion, Modest Armguards, Gallant’s Wristguards, Unsophisticated Hand Cannon, Jagged Bone Fist, Ogre Pocket Knife, Gordok’s Nose Ring, Bulky Iron Spaulders, Denwatcher’s Shoulders, Heliotrope Cloak, Sublime Wristguards, Hedgecutter, Happy Fun Rock, Libram of Rapidity, Libram of Focus, Libram of Protection.
      Stomper Kreeg (Level 59)
      One more than one occasion, skulking assassins have met their doom after accidentally disturbing Kreeg’s ale mug. Though he’s often passed out drunk on duty, nothing rouses the ogre into a berserker fury faster than the sound of his precious drink splattering on the stone floor.
      Loot: Gordok Shackle Key, Robe of Combustion, Hyena Hide Belt, Modest Armguards, Unsophisticated Hand Cannon, Jagged Bone Fist, Ogre Pocket Knife, Gordok Nose Ring, Happy Fun Rock, Libram of Protection, Runecloth, Libram of Rapidity, Libram of Focus, Garona: A Study on Stealth and Treachery (quest item), Codex of Defense (quest item), The Arcanist’s Cookbook (quest item), The Light and How to Swing It (quest item), Harnessing Shadows (quest item), The Greatest Race of Hunters (quest item), Holy Bologna: What the Light Won’t Tell You (quest item), Frost Shock and You (quest item), The Emerald Dream (quest item), Foror’s Compendium of Dragon Slaying (quest item).
      Guard Fengus (Level 59)
      Ever since Cho’Rush the Observer told him he was destined to meet a mate while on duty, Fengus has spent almost every waking moment patrolling Gordok territory.
      Loot: Gordok Shackle Key, Robe of Combustion, Hyena Hide Belt, Modest Armguards, Gallant’s Wristguards, Unsophisticated Hand Cannon, Jagged Bone Fist, Ogre Pocket Knife, Gordok Nose Ring, Happy Fun Rock, Libram of Protection, Runecloth, Libram of Rapidity, Libram of Focus, Garona: A Study on Stealth and Treachery (quest item), Codex of Defense (quest item), The Arcanist’s Cookbook (quest item), The Light and How to Swing It (quest item), Harnessing Shadows (quest item), The Greatest Race of Hunters (quest item), Holy Bologna: What the Light Won’t Tell You (quest item), Frost Shock and You (quest item), The Emerald Dream (quest item), Foror’s Compendium of Dragon Slaying (quest item).
      Guard Slip’kik (Level 59)
      Some might think Slip’kik is merely cautious, but he’s also lazy. Rather than challenge King Gordok directly, Slip’kil tinkers with traps and old broken magical devices hoping to eventually deliver a coup de grace without an ounce of risk or a drop of sweat.
      Loot: Gordok Shackle Key, Robe of Combustion, Hyena Hide Belt, Modest Armguards, Gallant’s Wristguards, Unsophisticated Hand Cannon, Jagged Bone Fist, Ogre Pocket Knife, Gordok Nose Ring, Happy Fun Rock, Bulky Iron Spaulders, Denwatcher’s Shoulders, Heliotrope Cloak, Sublime Wristguards, Hedgecutter, Runecloth, Libram of Protection, Runecloth, Libram of Rapidity, Libram of Focus, Ogre Warbeads (quest item) Garona: A Study on Stealth and Treachery (quest item), Codex of Defense (quest item), The Arcanist’s Cookbook (quest item), The Light and How to Swing It (quest item), Harnessing Shadows (quest item), The Greatest Race of Hunters (quest item), Holy Bologna: What the Light Won’t Tell You (quest item), Frost Shock and You (quest item), The Emerald Dream (quest item), Foror’s Compendium of Dragon Slaying (quest item).
      Captain Kromcrush (Level 61)
      Even among ogres, Captain Kromcrush is infamous for his hair-trigger rage toward anyone who dares to insult him or King Gordok. He crushes dissent ruthlessly, but he has still less patience for those who continue to spread the rumor of his torrid affair with a gnoll long ago.
      Loot: Monstrous Glaive, Kromcrush’s Chestplate, Mugger’s Belt, Boots of the Full Moon, Gordok Shackle Key, Happy Fun Rock, Runecloth, Libram of Protection, Runecloth, Libram of Rapidity, Libram of Focus, Ogre Warbeads (quest item) Garona: A Study on Stealth and Treachery (quest item), Codex of Defense (quest item), The Arcanist’s Cookbook (quest item), The Light and How to Swing It (quest item), Harnessing Shadows (quest item), The Greatest Race of Hunters (quest item), Holy Bologna: What the Light Won’t Tell You (quest item), Frost Shock and You (quest item), The Emerald Dream (quest item), Foror’s Compendium of Dragon Slaying (quest item).
      Cho’Rush the Observer (Level 60)
      Cho’Rush doesn’t usually take sides, but when Ulrok was rising to power, it was clear there was nobody who could challenge him. The king quickly appointed Cho’Rush as his chief adviser, believing that his twin heads would make him twice as resourceful as the average ogre.
      Loot: Mana Channeling Wand, Cho’Rush’s Blade, Observer’s Shield, Insightful Hood, Happy Fun Rock, Runecloth, Libram of Protection, Runecloth, Libram of Rapidity, Libram of Focus, Ogre Warbeads (quest item) Garona: A Study on Stealth and Treachery (quest item), Codex of Defense (quest item), The Arcanist’s Cookbook (quest item), The Light and How to Swing It (quest item), Harnessing Shadows (quest item), The Greatest Race of Hunters (quest item), Holy Bologna: What the Light Won’t Tell You (quest item), Frost Shock and You (quest item), The Emerald Dream (quest item), Foror’s Compendium of Dragon Slaying (quest item).
      King Gordok (Level 61-62)
      To rule the Gordok ogres, one must simply proclaim oneself king…and then destroy all who might disagree. King Gordok—then merely known as Ulrok—solidified his power by convincing a dozen of his people’s strongest warriors to challenge the king at the same time. The wild melee left most of the contestants dead or wounded, and Ulrok’s blade easily cut down the survivors and the battle-weary king. To this day, Gordok ogres speak in hushed tones about the “Day of Da Blood.”
      Loot: Barbarous Blade, Grimy Metal Boots, Band of the Ogre King, Brightly Glowing Stone, Leggings of Destruction, Bracers of Prosperity, Crown of the Ogre King, Harmonious Gauntlets, Happy Fun Rock, Runecloth, Libram of Protection, Runecloth, Libram of Rapidity, Libram of Focus, Ogre Warbeads (quest item) Garona: A Study on Stealth and Treachery (quest item), Codex of Defense (quest item), The Arcanist’s Cookbook (quest item), The Light and How to Swing It (quest item), Harnessing Shadows (quest item), The Greatest Race of Hunters (quest item), Holy Bologna: What the Light Won’t Tell You (quest item), Frost Shock and You (quest item), The Emerald Dream (quest item), Foror’s Compendium of Dragon Slaying (quest item).
      Fortune Favors the Brave
      Dire Maul has plenty of challenges to undertake and loot to glean from within its halls if you know where to look and includes many Horde, Alliance, and class-specific quests.
      Orb of Deception: The Orb of Deception is a world drop that can be found throughout Azeroth, but many players choose to farm for it within the halls of Dire Maul due to the number of available creatures to kill. With this random drop, you can change your identity to that of the opposite faction. Just beware that not all are easily fooled and when engaging in PvP, your name will still appear as an enemy despite how you look. Librams: There are three Librams available to earn via quests within this dungeon. Libram of Focus- Used to create the Arcanum of Focus which permanently enchants a leg or head slot with +8 to Healing and Damage from spells. Libram of Protection- Used to create the Arcanum of Protection which permanently enchants a leg or head slot item with 1& dodge. Libram of Rapidity- Used to create the Arcanum of Rapidity which permanently enchants a leg or head slot item with 1% haste. Royal Seal of Eldre’Thalas: Each class can complete a quest available at level 60 within Dire Maul to receive a beneficial trinket. You’ll need to loot a book from the creatures within to turn in for your reward. Class Quest Reward Druid The Emerald Dream Royal Seal of Eldre’Thalas

You’ll need to defeat Hydrospawn in the east wing of Dire Maul to loot the Hydrospawn Essence and turn it in to Lorekeeper Lydros in the Athenaeum.
      Warlock and Paladin Epic Mounts
      Both warlocks and paladins can earn an epic mount beginning at level 60—but they’ll need a little help from their friends to claim their new rides.
      Warlock players will be able to follow a series of quests to earn the Dreadsteed of Xoroth epic mount. The questline begins with Mor’zul  Bloodbringer in the Burning Steppes where he’ll detail what you’ll need to complete in order to summon and capture this steed.
      For paladins who have reached level 60, you’ll begin your venture to claim the epic Charger mount with Lord Grayson Shadowbreaker in Stormwind starting with the quest, “Ancient Equine Spirit.”
      Paying Tribute
      There’s more than one way to get through the North wing of Dire Maul. You can take part in what’s known as a tribute run. The goal is to avoid killing all the bosses up to King Gordok. Once you’ve reached the king, you can kill him and claim your place as the new king of the ogres.
      To create the suit, you’ll need the following items: Bring 4 bolts of Runecloth, 8 Rugged Leathers, 2 Rune Threads, and 1 Ogre Tannin to Knot Thimblejack and he’ll create a Gordok Ogre Suit for you. This will allow you to disguise yourself as one of the Gordok Ogres.
      Forging Quel’Serrar
      Last, but certainly not least, paladins and warriors can create and claim the epic weapon, Quel’serrar.
      To begin your quest to add this weapon to your armory, you’ll need to collect Foror’s Compendium of Dragon Slaying from within Dire Maul. You’ll need to turn it into Lorekeeper Lydros in the Athenaeum within the dungeon. He’ll give you A Dull and Flat Elven Blade. Your next step will involve a confrontation within Onyxia’s Lair where you’ll need her to breathe fire on the Unfired Ancient Blade, then drive the blade into her defeated corpse. Once you’ve completed your epic quest, you’ll receive Quel’Serrar.
      What are you waiting for? Dire Maul is now open and waiting for your party to plunder its ancient halls! 
      Dire Maul is now available in WoW Classic and we've updated our guide section with guides for each wing, the Quel'Serrar weapon questline, and more!

      Dire Maul will be available later today at 10:00 AM PDT // 7:00 PM CEST. Blizzard decided to open the dungeon ahead of Phase 2 which brings World Bosses and the Honor System including PvP Rank Rewards to WoW Classic.
      Phase 2 will launch later this year, according to the latest interview by Game Director Ion Hazzikostas.

      Following up on our announcement from last week, Dire Maul will become available today, October 15, at 10:00am PDT.

      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas today talked about WoW Classic and Phase 2 in the latest Developer Content Update Preview. He confirmed that Dire Maul was, in fact, coming not in Phase 2, but on October 15.
      The developers have decided to break Dire Maul out separately and release it as soon as possible. The dungeon will be available starting October 15. Phase 2 will be all about World Bosses and the Honor System including PvP Rank Rewards.

      WoW Classic launched back in August and Blizzard's plan according to the latest information is to remove layering two months after launch. While we still don't have a date for Phase 2, it's time to look at what's coming to WoW Classic next.
      Phase 2
      The first content update for WoW Classic includes two world bosses, Dire Maul, and an Honor System with PvP Rank rewards. Blizzard also confirmed they will remove layering by Phase 2.

      What are plans for phase 2 if some realms are horrifically overpopulated at 50K+ players? Will layering stay?
      We're absolutely committed to reaching one layer per realm by Phase 2. This is why we need to have upper bounds on the number of players connected to the realm at one time, and queue players past that point. That, of course, is why we're willing to open new servers if necessary, and we've even started doing that in response to the incredibly positive reception we've had during the name reservation period!
      Azuregos & Lord Kazzak (World Bosses)
      Azuregos will be found in southeastern Azshara. It will take more than 30 minutes to kill him. Blizzard did this intentionally to prevent corpse running during the fight. You can find more information about the encounter over at WoWWiki.

      The second boss is Lord Kazzak that will reside near the Dark Portal in Blasted Lands. You can read more about his abilities and loot here.

      Dire Maul (Dungeon)
      Dire Maul is a three-wing dungeon is located in Feralas. It was once a Highborne city which is now overrun by ogres, satyrs, and undead.
      Both the world bosses and Dire Maul were not added in Phase 1, because it would badly affect progression through Molten Core and Onyxia's Lair.
      Blizzard decided to break Dire Maul out of Phase 2 and it will go live on October 15.

      Our first phase primarily focuses on launching Classic with Onyxia and Molten Core, but we’ve decided to hold off on Dire Maul for a while. Maraudon is still in the first phase, because it was originally released on December 18, 2004, just two weeks after the first player hit level 60, but we recognize that Dire Maul is in a different category. Some of the loot that’s attainable from Dire Maul is so good that it would affect progression through those early raids. We’re also planning to hold off on releasing Kazzak and Azuregos at launch as well, for the same reasons. Honor System & PvP Rank Rewards
      While the initial phase of WoW Classic has no Honor system, this will all change in Phase 2. You will be able to acquire ranks and gear through outdoor PvP. Keep in mind that Battlegrounds won't be added before Phase 3 and it will take a substantial time investment to rank up through the Honor System just as it did back in Vanilla.

      Since we broke down the six phases of content that we’ll be rolling out for Classic, we’ve heard the increase in requests for PvP details so we wanted to get you up to speed on our plans there.
      As was the case when World of Warcraft originally launched in 2004, there won’t be a formal PvP system in WoW Classic at the outset. You’ll still be able to PvP, of course, and there will be no Dishonorable Kills, so you’ll be free to repeatedly hunt down every player and NPC in, say, Stranglethorn Vale to your stealthy heart’s content.
      That’ll change once phase 2 rolls around and we add the Honor System, which will introduce Honorable Kills, Dishonorable Kills, and PvP Rank Rewards. The items you earn from the PvP Rank Rewards will be the versions from patch 1.12. Keep in mind though, just as it did originally, it will require a substantial time investment to rank up through the Honor System. For those interested in the Rank Rewards, earning epic gear will require consistent dedication over a long period of time as a top contributor on your realm. We don’t expect to see many people running around with these items early on, but we’re certain Hillsbrad Foothills will still see its fair share of action!
      In the third phase, we’ll introduce the first Battlegrounds: Alterac Valley (version 1.12) and Warsong Gulch, alongside with their associated vendors. One thing to note is that there were a couple of updates to these vendors over the course of the original patch releases, so some items won’t be available right away. For example, the Spell Penetration trinkets available from the Warsong Gulch vendor weren’t introduced until Patch 1.9, so we’re currently thinking that we’ll add these in phase 5.
      The Arathi Basin Battleground will follow in phase 4, along with its specific vendor. It’ll be interesting to see how many people stay behind to guard the flag. 
      Finally, in phase 6, we’ll have the world PvP objectives in Silithus and Eastern Plaguelands, which will come out at the same time as Naxxramas.
      Here’s what the PvP content looks like mapped to the phases we recently posted about:
      Phase 1 (WoW Classic Launch)
      You can PvP one another in the world, but there is no tracking, and no formal rewards for doing so. Phase 2
      Honor System (including Dishonorable Kills) PvP Rank Rewards Phase 3
      Alterac Valley (version 1.12) Warsong Gulch Phase 4
      Arathi Basin Phase 6
      World PvP objectives in Silithus and Eastern Plaguelands

      Redditor Rhianolord posted a detailed WoW Classic map of Azeroth on /r/classicwow. He stumbled upon the Brady Games WoW Azeroth map (released back in Vanilla) and updated it with various points of interest including flight paths, zone level ranges, world boss locations, and more.
      The result is a very detailed high-resolution map of Azeroth with all important locations.

      Map Preview
      Three versions of the map are currently available for download ranging from the low quality version (15MB) up to the highest quality TIF with the size of 470 MB.
