Following the announcement of the brand new expansion of World of Warcraft (titled Dragonflight), WoW Classic enthusiasts got their due with the announcement of Wrath of the Lich King Classic.
The classic expansion will return under the spotlight in 2022.
The Death Knight class will obviously be available and will start at level 55. On top of that, there will be changes made to the original expansion to better fit players who love the Classic experience. A few more options will be added to the barbershop, but no real money will be charged. You’ll be able to pay for everything with in-game gold.
The Dungeon Finder will not be included as the developers don’t see it as a good fit for the Classic community. Arena Teams have also been removed.
A level 70 boost will be available alongside the level cap increase to 80.
If you’re unfamiliar with World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, it was released as November 2008 as the second expansion of Blizzard’s venerable MMORPG. While many loved it, a subset of the community saw it as the beginning of WoW’s downfall following the golden age of Burning Crusade.
Of course, it’ll include a ton of new (or returning, if you want to see it from that point of view) content including the continent of Northrend, home base of Arthas the Lich King himself.
It’ll certainly be interesting to see what effects it will have on the Classic community.
World of Warcraft Classic is currently available exclusively for PC.
