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.
