Here's a really interesting visualization, as paraizord shared zone maps with highlighted locations of where Hardcore players had died and who killed them. This is based on data from the Deathlog addon, with 45,000 actual deaths logged in Classic. We also get to see what exactly killed them, as well as the level range of deaths by zone (you'd be surprised at the amount of sub-level 10 deaths).
There's plenty of locations showcased in the reddit post below, and the highest number of deaths is mostly related to how many players chose which starting zone, and oh boy, there were a LOT of Night Elves not making it out of Teldrassil, and most of those were under level 10.
Other VERY deadly mobs include Voidwalker Minions from Durotar, Son of Arugal in Silverpine, Wendigo in Dun Morogh, Defias Trapper in Westfall and the MOST deadly mob in this overview: Kobold Miners from Elwynn.
The later zones are much more interesting, however, as there are fewer deaths and the players getting there are presumably more dedicates, so let's take a look at the probably most classic Classic zone:
And here's the full list with the 14 zones that were examined:
Blizzard today announced Hardcore Classic with more details to be unveiled in the near future.
Today is a great day for Hardcore players, as they will no longer need to rely on add-ons because Hardcore gameplay will now be officially supported by Blizzard.
We will of course have a dedicated guide section for Hardcore. Stay tuned for more information!
As Senior Game Producer Aggrend just confirmed on the Hardcore All-Stars stream, we’ve been working to bring official Hardcore Classic gameplay to WoW Classic. We’ve been very energized by the community’s enthusiasm for Hardcore, watching along with you, and doing a lot of Hardcore play ourselves.
We’ll let you know much more about it soon!
A Hardcore server type has appeared in the game's database table in Patch 10.0.7, which means we could get official support for Hardcore Classic realms soon.
How Would Hardcore Realms Work in WoW?
Similar to Diablo, when your character dies, it will get deleted. Classic players currently replicate this behavior by using an addon, but some datamined strings hint at possible official support for Hardcore Classic realms. Specifically, the cfg_categories database table had a Hardcore string added in Patch 10.0.7 Build 48295.
Now, all we need is an official announcement by Blizzard.
The "WoW Dev 2" CDN branch has just been updated with a new encrypted Patch 1.15 build!
Sadly, the update is encrypted and we cannot see what is new. However, my gut tells me we're maybe going to hear more about Season of Mastery 2 soon.
As for the build numbers, the version got updated from 1.14.3 Build 48611 to 1.15.0 Build 49244.
(us) BuildConfig: 0b2a0c4 → 2279274! (us) CDNConfig: 68f2b69 → 13658c7! (us) BuildId: 48611 → 49244! (us) VersionsName: 18.104.22.168611 → 22.214.171.124244!
Here's a very strange and interesting bug (that was resolved pretty quickly), as EU Classic Era players were receiving the "realms will be unavailable in this region from January 23rd, 2023" message today, that was meant for the closure of Chinese realms earlier this year.
This issue did not affect all players on EU servers, but there were plenty of reports, and Blizzard did hotfix the problem fairly quickly (around 1-2 hours) after the first report.
Hi there u/Prodooc. Just stopping by to let everyone know that the WoW team is currently aware of this issue and working on getting it resolved! No ETA at this moment, but they are on it.
EDIT: Ok they have already fixed it! If you are still having any issues please restart your Battle.net app and check for WoW updates before opening the game.
