Burning Crusade Classic Boost Quests: Brand New BC Content Burning Crusade Classic Boost Quests: Brand New BC Content We have the first brand new content added to the Burning Crusade in over a decade! The level boost for BCC has been a huge source of discontent in the Classic community, with many feeling it goes against the very point of Classic itself. It's sparked dozens and dozens of threads against its implementation (and a few defending it as well), and it seems the boost isn't coming to BCC alone, bringing with it another thing the Classic community isn't fond of: new additions.

Chronoboon World Buff Saver Details from the PTR Chronoboon World Buff Saver Details from the PTR The World Buff saving addition to Vanilla Classic has already arrived on the PTR and players have been playing around with it to see what the rules and limitations are. While not all of the mechanics uncovered seem to be intended and there's definitely some bugs present with the new item, there's a lot of information to go through. Also to note: this item will NOT be available in Burning Crusade Classic, where all World Buffs will be removed when a raid encounter starts. WoW Classic WoW Classic Mar 31, 2021 at 06:45 by Starym
World Buffs Will Be Removed at the Start of Raid Encounters in Burning Crusade Classic World Buffs Will Be Removed at the Start of Raid Encounters in Burning Crusade Classic Blizzard have been talking about World Buffs a lot today and in the discussion also mentioned the fact that they're planning on having them be completely removed at the start of a raid encounter in Burning Crusade Classic! This will presumably also include buffs from BC itself, like Hellscream's Warsong and Blessing of A'dal (in their original BC versions), and while we know a lot of the old Vanilla World Buffs will not be usable above level 63, it was unclear if there were going to be workarounds for some spficifc ones like songflower. Luckily this decision will make all World Buffs moot and will level the playing field. WoW Classic WoW Classic 3 comments Mar 31, 2021 at 02:29 by Staff
The Future of World Buffs on Classic Era Servers The Future of World Buffs on Classic Era Servers Update 3: You can read about how exactly the new system works, which buffs are affected, some triks and bugs and more, straight from the PTR here.
Update 2: The Chronoboon Displacer will be coming to the PTR soon and we have explicit confirmation that this is not an April Fools joke.
Update 1: Blizzard have clarified that this feature will come out before Burning Crusade Classic is released!


Blizzard have clarified how World Buffs will work on Classic (non-BC) Era servers, and introduced the  Chronoboon Displacer. The displacer will hold your buffs for you if you decide to "save" them for later! You can check which buffs you have stored, how much time there's left on them and - most importantly, you can die and not lose them while they're saved!

Leveling Is Slower on the Burning Crusade Classic Beta Than in the Original Leveling Is Slower on the Burning Crusade Classic Beta Than in the Original We already knew there would be a fair number of differences between the original Burning Crusade and BC Classic, but this one may not be exactly intended. As mentioned by many players, the leveling was feeling significantly slower than it used to back in 2007, and once some more curious/enterprising players dug into it, they figured out what was happening.
