What’s different in WoW Classic Season of Mastery?

As with the first release of WoW Classic, we’re planning six content release phases. In WoW Classic Season of Mastery, however, phase unlocks will happen faster. We’re planning for a 12-month cadence, with phases unlocking roughly every couple months. Here’s the current outline for the six phases:

Phase 1 (WoW Classic Season of Mastery Launch)

  • Molten Core
  • Onyxia
  • Maraudon
  • PvP Honor System and Battlegrounds (up from Phases 3 and 4)
  • Dire Maul

Phase 2

  • Azuregos
  • Kazzak

Phase 3

  • Blackwing Lair
  • Darkmoon Faire
  • Darkmoon deck drops begin

Phase 4

  • Zul’Gurub
  • Green Dragons

Phase 5

  • Ahn’Qiraj War Effort begins
  • Ahn’Qiraj raids open as the war effort dictates

Phase 6

  • Naxxramas
  • Scourge Invasion

Patch Notes

 

For more details on Season of Mastery updates, read the patch notes.

 


You are now able to create additional characters up to a maximum of 50 characters in each of our three games:

  • Up to 50 characters total in World of Warcraft Classic (includes Season of Mastery)
  • Up to 50 characters in Burning Crusade Classic
  • Up to 50 characters in World of Warcraft and World of Warcraft: Shadowlands

Characters that were created for the WoW Classic Season of Mastery Open Beta will not be available to use in WoW Classic Season of Mastery.

To create a character and play WoW Classic Season of Mastery, you will need to download and install the client first.

  1. Open the Battle.net desktop app and select World of Warcraft in the game selection menu.
  2. Select World of Warcraft Classic. If you have more than one World of Warcraft account, you’ll see a second dropdown for Account. In that column, select the active account you want to play on.
  3. Click the Install button. You’ll see an installation progress bar that will show you when the installation is available to play.
  4. Once the installation is complete, click the Play button.

You’ll need to select the Season of Mastery realm you want to play on which will be identified in the Realm list. Then select Create New Character. You’ll be able to choose your faction, class, and race, as well as fully customize your new character and name them.

Before you put your plans too firmly in place, we encourage you to gather your allies together to select your new home realm. If you’re looking to reconnect with your old friends and guildmates, be sure to check out our Classic Connections forum.

Once you’ve created your new character, all that will be left is to synchronize your chronometer with your friends and allies and prepare for your world (of Warcraft) domination. We’ll see you in Azeroth!

      Molten Core has been cleared and it seems Season of Mastery is off to a pretty good start, difficulty-wise, as it's already quite a lot more demanding than original Classic was! It's taken two weeks compared to Classic's 6 days, as we now have the guild w h o taking down Ragnaros, and with SoM's faster leveling pace they had even more time available for the raid, so it's actually taken even more time!
      As initially spotted by Sazakiii, the kill was pretty dramatic at the end there, with most of the raid dead:

      With 6 Hunters, 7 Mages, 2 Warlocks, 4 Rogues and 8 Warriors, along with the 2 Warr tanks as well as 1 Druid, 4 Paladin and 6 Priest healers, the guild got the very first kill of Season of Mastery in, so congratulations! You can check out their Ragnaros logs and more over here.
      This bodes well for future Season of Mastery raids and their potential difficulty, as we might just have some proper races on our hands!

      Season of Mastery's Soul of Iron/hardcore/ironman challenge has proven to be quite fun for many players, and difficult as well. However, there are some that are making the 1-life mode a LOT harder for those that visit Stormwind, and the players that get taken down in the seeming safety of the Alliance capital have some... harsh words to share with the perpetrator.
      Kiting the elite dragon Teremus to Stormwind is a 17-year-old tradition at this point, however due to the Soul of Iron mode in Season of Mastery, it is perhaps not as funny for some today. Taestiranos aka Frond has been playing how to train your dragon (onto players) for a long time now, and he's continued this practice during Season of Mastery as well, taking down some hardcore/Soul of Iron players, and as you can imagine, their responses weren't too positive (this is from one day only):

      And here's the actual event that prompted some of the messages:

      However, this isn't a Frond-only situation, as there's an even bigger threat over on Obsidian Edge, the unofficial hardcore server where there's plenty more Soul of Iron players, as someone else seems to have had the same idea:

      That's a lot of souls ironed. And here's a meme to close it all out:

      Only a day behind the softcore version, we have the Soul of Iron/hardcore/ironman max level challenge completed, as two players reached level 60 at the same time!
      Well-known Classic streamers Tommysalami and Tactical were quest-leveling together and reached the final level at the same time as well, only 3 days and 4 hours after they started (which is only 12 hours slower than the softcore 60 we covered yesterday). Here's the clip for the double-ding, as spotted by gandalf45435:

      A very interesting bit of trivia here, the spot they finished in is actually the same spot another famous speed leveler, the actual first WoW Classic 60, JokerD actually died in earlier this week as he lost the hardcore challenge at level 50:

      JokerD is also a little famous for ninjaing a staff from Molten Core, after which he was removed from his esports org!
      But back to the actual first Soul of Iron 60ies in the Season of Mastery: congratulations to Tommysalami and Tactical!

      Have you ever gotten ambushed by an entire world event that isn't due for over 8 months? No? Well, it seems Season of Mastery is really demanding a lot of mastery, including the ability to survive the Ahn'Qiraj gate opening event invasion quite literally sneaking up on you! The Old Gods really are powerful, as they seem to have started interfering with the game's code now too.
      Therinlahhan fell victim to such an unprovoked time-traveling attack, as the elite Anubisath mobs jumped him after a crystal spawned in the middle of the Barrens - with the Horde defenders showing up as well, only for it all to literally disappear 2 minutes later!

      Luckily it wasn't hardcore/Soul of Iron, so not that much harm done, but I do have to say that despite this being a pretty hilarious bug, I wouldn't mind temporal incursions like this one being an actual feature. Well, perhaps not literally insta-spawning an entire event on top of a player, but you get the idea.
      I also wanted to mention one of the best comments in response to this little event, as phurbain may have come across the oldest Old God plot in the game:
      Looks like we found out what happened to mankrik's wife

      We have a 60 ding in the Season of Mastery, as Zarant_ managed to solo-quest his way to the maximum level first! As spotted by Wowhead, he did it using the (paid, with a 1-20 trial) RestedXP  guide and addon (which he also contributes to) on a Beast Mastery Hunter, aka the king of solo. It took 2 days and 16.5 hours and you can check out the final moments below!
