When does Cataclysm Classic Phase 2 launch? July 2024!

Cataclysm Classic Phase 2 is scheduled to go live in July 2024, and while Blizzard has not given an exact date, we expect Phase 2 to begin the week of July 23, 2024 at weekly reset, with new raid dungeons launching July 25, 2024. Since Wrath Classic Phase 2, most of the Classic expansion phases have arrived every 9-10 weeks, and thanks to the 2024 Classic roadmap we know we can expect a similar schedule for Cataclysm Classic. Look for each phase to begin at Tuesday reset with endgame content arriving on Thursday, two days later.

As we wait for an announcement on when Cataclysm Classic Phase 2 officially arrives, let’s look at what we can expect it to bring when it does!

What’s in Cataclysm Classic Phase 2?

  • Zul’Aman
  • Zul’Gurub

Originally, patch 4.1 Rise of the Zandalari brought back two dungeons — Zul’Aman and Zul’Gurub — as level 85 heroic 5-player dungeons with an interconnected questline about Vol’jin and the Darkspear Trolls fighting against the Zandalari Trolls. It’s reasonable to expect that these will return in Phase 2 but this may not be all that’s coming. When Cataclysm Classic was first revealed, it was announced some changes made during Wrath Classic would be making it into Cataclysm Classic. Wrath Classic’s new Titan Rune Dungeon system specifically called out as something Blizzard wanted to expand on.

Titan Rune Dungeons brought a new layer of difficulty to Wrath Classic dungeons and gave players another route to earn 10-player level raid gear from each of the previously released raids. Combined with some additional power scaling for raid gear in order to reduce the feeling of power creep, Titan Rune Dungeons offered a bridge to earn some higher level gear that would “last longer,” so to speak.

We haven’t received any additional information since BlizzCon 2023 but if a version of Titan Rune Dungeons does indeed make it into Cataclysm Classic, Phase 2 would be the perfect time to implement it. I expect it would be a similar system, with more difficulty modifiers for a chance to get 10-player level gear from Cataclysm Classic Phase 1 raids, just under a different name.

Cataclysm Classic Phase 1 just released so it’ll be some time before we hear anything about Phase 2 but once we learn something, we’ll be sure to let you know, so check be sure to keep your eyes on the site!
