We Might Be Hearing About Burning Crusade Classic by the End of the Year? (Rumor)

Recommended Posts

After the recent survey that went out and talked about interest in the Burning Crusade Classic, we now have a fairly reliable source talking about more news on the much expected continuation of Classic coming before the end of the year!

Nano, formerly a core staff member of the Nostalrius private server team, who had a meeting with Blizzard about how they made their server while Vanilla Classic was being developed, tweeted this yesterday:

While he may theoretically have been referring to the survey, the tweet was posted significantly after it, so it seems more likely this is related to an actual official confirmation/announcement, especially since it refers to a schedule specifically. This comes after Nano correctly predicted/leaked the release schedule for Naxxramas, but also had a time set for the TBC Classic beta in said earlier leak:

So this source has been pretty reliable in the past, and this tweet sure makes it sound like we won't have to wait for BlizzConline to hear about the Burning Crusade coming to Classic!

I don't know why they are not continuing the classic wow with patches...let tbc to be another standalone game..

It's not confirmed yet if TBC classic is going to replace current classic. If it happens, I guess there's going to be pretty huge outrage, after all there are those who want pure classic to remain.

I know that this was a few weeks ago, but really? WTF was the idea of a "classic" wow, then?  Adding TBC or any other content at that point, Classic no longer classic.  If people want to play TBC, let it be a different game as someone mentioned already.  Or better yet, give folks a menu that allows one to turn on or off the different add-ons allowing one to make the game of their choice since it is from 1 to 60 now. If you turn on a certain add on then you will only see those who have that add on turned on.  Programming this should be no different than adding 4 extra slots or more to that 1st backpack Blizzard said that they could not do back a few years ago.

      Gorak's Guide has been a steady producer of great and very funny WoW machinimas for quite a while now, and he's back with another one! This time the theme is the end of Classic and arrival of BC, but I've also included an earlier one we skipped, as it's my favorite in quite a while (well that and the World Buff one).

      Here's another crazy accomplishment, as Rommildrey managed to finish up their huge Classic goal JUST before Burning Crusade Classic hit, and got 60 characters to level 60 without boosting, dungeons or questing!
      Yes, you read that right, all 60 characters were leveled exclusively by killing mobs, completely reliant on rested experience. So how long did this all take? Around 316 days played, including everything related to it (bank transfers etc), and if you calculate that you'll probably conclude there was some multiboxing happening, or they spent basically ALL their time on leveling for the past 2 years.
      While the below images only show 58 characters, Rommildrey assures us that there were 2 extra level 60 Warlocks there, but they had to be deleted. And really, why would someone lie when 58 is just as insane a number as 60.
        
        
        
      Source.
      And here's a whole lot more info from Rommildrey on this awesome goal that they accomplished:
      In WoD I decided to level 100 characters to 100 for the fun of it, as leveling was super easy with recruit a friend, heirloom gear and just overall more smoothed out leveling. It didn't scratch the itch for a hard leveling experience, so when they announced classic WoW I pretty much instantly knew I wanted to do 60 60s, knowing that the leveling in the game is the slowest and hardest that it ever was.

      I was motivated the whole way through because I knew that I wanted to do it, I knew it was going to scratch that itch and make me stop wanting to do big insane projects like this. I think it worked, I only kinda want to do 70 70s for Burning Crusade.
      ...
      I wouldn't say I had a favorite zone, I would basically find humanoids of the levels I needed at that particular time so I rarely interacted with the rest of the zone apart from the inn keeper and and the mobs I was grinding.

      There were plenty of areas that sucked at times, like grinding the trolls in northern STV, had tons of traffic from ZG and a huge number of 60s helping level 30 warriors grind for their Whirlwind Axe. Not often very friendly. The blood elves in Azshara were also pretty painful at lower level, their aggro range is huge and their heal is massive if you fail to interrupt it.
      The gear I was leveling with was basically just the best greens for that class, passed on by the other characters that didn't need it. So when a green str/agi item drops on my warlock, instead of vendoring it I can give it to a warrior, rogue, feral druid or paladin etc. So for the most part I had best in slot green gear on most of my characters.
      ...
      I love grinding, so to me it was basically just a super chill grind the whole way through until I was nearing the end and closer to pre-patch. Going mob by mob means I had a lot of free time to watch shows, movies, listen to and discover new music etc.
      ...
      Haha I was waiting for someone to call me out on that! In my final days of grinding 2 of my warlocks to 60, I had to continue grinding despite knowing they were going to be deleted in a few days to be replaced by paladins. I assure you they did exist!
      ...
      About 316 days played working on this project, including banking, transferring items etc.
      ...
      I found 3 pairs of Edgemasters, 1 Wardens Staff, 2 Glowing Brightwood Staves and probably 45-50 other random epics worth very little. I also got every single bad BOE blue possible, just not a single good one.
      ...
      Until I decide if I want to continue on to 70 70s and 80 80s, all of my Faerlina and Stalagg characters will probably just rot, I was fully prepared for blizzard to cap characters allowed to be brought into BC since boosting was such a big thing, so I never really had any intention of doing anything with them after classic wow.

      I do plan on going fairly hard in Burning Crusade, I will probably get use out of most of my Herod characters.

      A really crazy feat, and we hope to see Rommildrey again with 70 level 70ies in two years time!

      With World Buffs leaving the Classic meta tomorrow with the Burning Crusade's launch (at least for those that decided to move on to the expansion), awesome and funny machinima maker Gorak decided to give them a fond farewell, by comparing the original Vanilla experience with the buffs to the way they were handled in Classic! The results are pretty great:

      Blizzard have announced specific plans for the Classic Era realm connection process, detailing which specific servers are getting connected in both US and EU regions.
      Classic Era Realm Connections (source 1, source 2)
      US:
      As we approach the moment when WoW Classic players will make the choice to move on to The Burning Crusade Classic (version 2.5.1) or stick with Classic Era (version 1.13.7), we will be connecting many Classic Era realms during maintenance on Tuesday, May 18.
      This means that in each region/locale, we will create connected realms among groups of Classic Era PvP realms, or groups of Classic Era Normal realms, or Classic Era RP realms.
      In this region, we will connect:
      Anathema, Arcanite Reaper, Bigglesworth, Blaumeux, Fairbanks, Kurinnaxx, Rattlegore, Smolderweb, Thunderfury, and Whitemane Arugal, Felstriker, and Yojamba Ashkandi, Mankrik, Pagle, Westfall, and Windseeker Atiesh, Azuresong, Myzrael, and Old Blanchy Benediction, Faerlina, Heartseeker, Incendius, and Netherwind Earthfury, Herod, Kirtonos, Kromcrush, Skeram, Stalagg, Sulfuras, and Thalnos Our goal is to maximize the opportunities for Classic Era players to establish strong communities and carry on enjoying their way of play. We hope to see healthy populations of connected realms for Classic Era players, and we’ll continue to monitor and consider further connections in the future.
      Thank you!

      Blizzard is lowering the price of the WoW Classic cloning service from $35 to $15, in response to some fairly heavy community criticism on the decision.
      (Source)
      Salutations, WoW Classic players! We’d like to inform you about a course correction we’re making.
      When you log in to WoW Classic after the patch next week, each of your Classic characters will choose between staying in Classic Era (version 1.13) and progressing to Burning Crusade Classic (version 2.5). For those who want to play a character in both versions, we’re offering a service to purchase a character clone in the other version of the game.
      This service – providing a player with a second copy of a character in a different game – is new for us. Our original concept of the value of this service was largely based on how we price other optional items and services. We want players who choose Classic Era realms to feel as though their choice comes with the possibility that they’ll be able to build relationships and guilds with other players they can count on.
      However, over the last week or so, we’ve gotten a very large amount of feedback from the community, and we’ve decided to lower the price. A lower price will likely still accomplish our goals with the new service, while allowing many more players to explore the option of playing characters on both Classic Era and Burning Crusade Classic realms.
      After careful consideration, we’ve decided to lower the price of a cloned character in WoW Classic to $15.00 USD ($20.00 CAD, $20.00 AUD, $24.00 NZD). You’ll see the lower price in-game when the service becomes available next week.
      As always, we deeply appreciate the passion and thoughtfulness of the WoW community. We play WoW alongside you, and we can’t wait to join you next week on Classic Era realms, in the Burning Crusade Classic pre-patch, and as we step through the Dark Portal with you in June.
      Thank you very much,
      – The World of Warcraft Development Team
