The Burning Crusade Classic Deluxe Edition & Rewards

Recommended Posts

56975-the-burning-crusade-classic-intern

There will be a Digital Edition of Burning Crusade Classic with 3 cosmetic rewards that include a completely new mount and two TCG toys!

It looks like those who buy the Deluxe Edition of TBC Classic will receive 3 rewards. 

  1. Warp Stalker Mount - a new datamined mount found in the Beta client. You can find a detailed preview of the mount here.
  2. Dark Portal Dark Portal (toy) previously available through the Trading Card Game.
  3. Path of Illidan Path of Illidan (consumable toy) that leaves patches of flame on the ground wherever you go. Stacks are unknown at this time, but the item was also part of the Trading Card Game.

Man.... they could at least make these trading card items they re-release have a slightly different color or something.... to set it apart from ones people actually got from the TCG.

Where is your Proof that this Datamine is actually what you claim it is? 

Are you acusing Icy Veins of lying?  I mean any datamine should be taken with a pinch of salt until it launches, sure, but your post is kinda accusatory.

I mean "TBCC: DE" - The Burning Crusade Classic: Deluxe Edition" would seem to make sense, no?

From what I've seen, reactions from community have been mixed. In classic you just paid subscription and were able to play, here they are introducing deluxe edition. Looks like they are trying to ease people into more microtransactions in classic. So much for "no changes" crowd... I wonder though if they won't start introducing rewards both for classic and current game.

The datamine was from The Burning Crusade Classic: Database of Enums? DE? Speculation like this only hurts games.

I mean, technically this does ebb to far from the "No Changes" considering TBC had a "Collectors" edition which is pretty much the same concept.

On top of my Previous Comment, Icy-Veins is saying, THERE IS going to be a Digital Edition for purchase that, uh, Has not been confirmed by Blizz.

It's almost like Icy Veins is one of the premiere sites for WoW/Blizz related news and what they say can usually be trusted to be accurate....

But you're obviously just looking to pick a fight and I have better ways to spend my time.

Premier lol. They don't get any more information than WoWHead, and WoWHead isn't even making these Claims because they're unfounded. Also, they got this information from some Rando-Twitter account that was Datamining that image.

Well all those sites did is post some datamined strings. So there is some evidence what it could be, just not confirmed.

"Could be" are key words here, I'm just pointing out that Icy-Veins, is a site Trusted(wrongfully) by so many people for their news information, and the consistently on a regular basis post things worded as Fact when they should post it worded as Speculation.

Who hurt you?

Icy Veins has always been a site that posts both fact and rumor-mill stuff for discussion of interest.

They have this toxic behavior of posting Rumor Mill stuff as Fact. Where as every other news site has it labeled as Speculation.

That nice some extra investment is going into the game to make it better than private servers, however this leads to some interesting questions:

- If I am an original collector edition (or other added package) subscriber of that game tier do I get these add ons for free? Or is this another way to extract $$'s for Bobby's next round of payouts?

- If I collect mounts/toys in a classic era environment are they added to my retail account collections?

Blizzard should just re-offer the collectors ed. of TBC. The same exact one they did back in 07 and everything that came with it. This new version they are offering that comes with a unique mount and TCG toys should be stuff added to current if you buy that version. In my Opinion adding new mounts and "stuff" completely ruins TBC "original" experience that people wanting to play the game gives. I may be wrong but I really think Blizzard is going to shoot themselves in the foot on this one. The player base that wants TBC wants a BC original experience. Blizzard adding new things to TBC means your not really getting a authentic version of TBC. So what are they going to do next. Release 2 versions of TBC, an original classic and then TBC with extras. We could go down this rabbit hole forever. The BC with Updated Graphics, TBC with new dungeons and Raids, TBC with...........

      This week on the BCC beta we have some new PvP additions, as level 70 Battlegrounds and Arena Skirmishes have been added! 
      BCC Beta Additions (source)
      We’ve enabled Battlegrounds and Arena Skirmishes on the Badge of Justice realm, allowing those activities to be tested at level 70 with template characters.
      Speak to Donjon in Shattrath to be sent to Orgrimmar or Stormwind, where you’ll find “King” Dond offering gear suitable for PvP.

      A new patch is coming to Classic tomorrow, with the World Buff-saving Chronobbon Dispenser, buff priorities, spell batching removed and some changes to Naxxramas and some items! 
      1.13.7 Notes (source)
      With scheduled weekly maintenance, WoW Classic will be updated to Patch 1.13.7.
      World of Warcraft: Classic Patch Notes
      Version 1.13.7
      Chronoboon Displacer
      Players who complete Chromie’s quests in Andorhal can obtain an ancient artifact of Bronze Dragonflight magic. Use the Chronoboon Displacer to store any world buffs such as Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer, Warchief’s Blessing, and Spirit of Zandalar for later use. Click the Supercharged Chronoboon Displacer to restore your buffs with their previous remaining durations intact. You may not benefit from additional world buffs until you have restored any that you currently have stored in the Supercharged Chronoboon Displacer. Gameplay Adjustments
      Beneficial buff priority system Beneficial buffs are now prioritized, similarly to how debuffs have been prioritized. This should help prevent situations where limited-duration or low impact buffs such as Renew, Rejuvenation, or 6-piece set bonuses would “push off” important buffs such as Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer or Flask of the Titans when used on a player that is near the buff limit. Mark of the Champion, Rune of the Dawn, and Seal of the Dawn’s benefits are now marked as “passive” auras and will no longer count towards the player buff cap. Spell batching removed The 400ms “spell batch” window has been reduced to 10ms. This should cause most player abilities to behave in a more responsive way, with damage and healing applied to targets faster. Certain operations in the game now resolve faster, such as purchasing multiple quantities of items from vendors rapidly. Paladin seals will now persist on the Paladin for a very short time after they’re replaced by a different seal, so that “seal twisting” remains possible. Naxxrammas
      There is now no area of the raised platform in Heigan the Unclean’s encounter space that is safe from Heigan’s mana burn while Heigan himself is on the platform. Fixed a few areas in the Heigan the Unclean encounter space where Plague Waves could overlap and deal double damage. Items
      Made several fixes and improvements to the combat behavior of guardians summoned from items such as the Vanquished Tentacle of C’thun, Defender of the Timbermaw, and Arcanite Dragonling to make them more likely to engage in combat in a wider variety of situations. Shadow Oil and Frost Oil can now proc while the player is on the Global Cooldown. Developers’ note: Shadow Oil is still bound by an internal cooldown however, and this is intended. Resolved an issue that caused the Barov Peasant Caller trinket to only spawn 1 Peasant. Resolved several issues with the Eye of the Dead trinket: Spells such as Chain Heal and Prayer of Healing now only consume a single charge. Heal-over-time spells now properly consume a charge when used. Bug Fixes
      The Cryptstalker Headpiece is no longer missing part of the red eye glow effect. Resolved an issue that caused the Brimstone Staff and Rhok’delar, Longbow of Ancient Keepers to not properly animate. City Guards now once again correctly respond to /salute and /wave emotes.

      We have a new record for a Naxxramas clear in Classic, and it's a solid 3.5 minutes faster than the previous one, with a completely insane and game-changing approach!
      We've seen the 50 minute barrier get broken during last month's Raid Masters tournament, but now we have a regular clear (well, an extraordinary clear really) by Progress who have gotten the run down to 45 minutes and 18 seconds! And to top it all off there's the insane 24 SECOND Sapphiron kill to go with it (usually Sapph takes about 2 minutes for other speed runs):

      By carrying the Thaddius Polarity Shift buff (which can give up to 190% increased damage) with them to Sapph (by waiting with the Thaddius kill until he cast a fresh Polarity Shift), they managed to get some insane amount of DPS. They also had to use Light of Elune to keep everyone alive, as they all had to stack in top of the tank, so he'd get the damage buff and have a chance at keeping aggro. But that's not all, as 38 players had to use Flask of Petrification (which gives damage immunity) to remove the Thaddius buff without dying and preserving their World Buffs.
      And here's the result in the DPS department:

      You can check the full logs here.
      And here's the full run as well, and the logs for it:
       
      Huge congratulations to Progress on this truly amazing and innovative strategy, and it's really great to see that there's always new and crazy things we can expect, even from a literally 16+ year old piece of content!

      Here comes another potential change for Classic, this one affecting only Chinese servers as the WoW Token has made an appearance!
      MrGM spotted the addition with the new Burning Crusade Classic build, as the token showed up on the Auction House with the "China Only" parenthesis:
      The WoW Token was added to the game back in Warlords of Draenor, and while it has allowed many to extend their game time by simply playing the game itself, it is also very widely used by bots to extend their play time, as they have access to large amounts of gold.
      While this is only the beta and only the China region, where playing habits are different, players have been very concerned with the addition of the character level boost and group finder additions, with many predicting the token is next in line to be added.
      It does seem unlikely that Blizzard would add the token to Classic in the West (at least for now), it's interesting to see it show up on this side of the servers with a clear "China only" marker, making it at least look like Blizzard is testing the waters to see player reactions to its addition.

      A new build went live on the Burning Crusade Beta, and here's what's new.
      Gear Vendors Removed
      Blizzard has removed Flaskataurs (vendors)  that offered free gear for testing.
      New Premade Realm
      Blizzard added a new realm called Badge of Justice, where players can create premade Level 70 characters, likely for the upcoming raid testing. For now, the realm remains offline.

      Item Changes
      Two items have been changed on the Beta. Drakefist Hammer and Annihilator are now Main Hand only. Previously, the items could be used in both hands.

      Vendor Changes
      Ge'ras in Shattrath no longer sells Primal Nether for Badges of Justice, the currency obtained from Heroic Dungeons.
