Be Prepared! This is what’s in Burning Crusade Classic’s five content phases — Phase 5 is now live!

Like WoW Classic, Burning Crusade Classic starts at a late patch (2.4.3) but game content will roll out over the course of five phases, as well as a prepatch interval I’m terming “phase zero.” It mimics the original game release to an extent, but there will be some items whose availability will be unlocked as well over the course of the phases, which we’ve noted below.

We’re presently in a fairly late Phase of the game: Phase 5 launched on May 10. And the major highlight of the Phase, the Sunwell Plateau raid, will launch on May 12. Let’s check out just what will be in the Phases — particularly the game’s last, which will be starting soon.

The phases of Burning Crusade Classic

Phase 0, now live

Phase 1, now live

Phase 2, now live

Phase 3, now live

  • Tier 6 raids Battle for Mount Hyjal and Black Temple opened on January 27
  • PVP Arena Season 3

Phase 4, now live

  • Zul’aman raid opened on March 24
  • PVP Arena Season 3 continues
  • Badge of Justice are now available from raids and dailies

Phase 5, now live

  • Sunwell Plateau raid, launching May 12
  • Magister’s Terrace dungeon
  • Isle of Quel’danas questing hub
  • PVP Arena Season 4
  • Epic Engineering goggles will be craftable

So what comes next? While we don’t yet have a release date, we’re going into Wrath of the Lich King Classic when Burning Crusade Classic wraps up.
