|The re-release of World of Warcraft Classic in May last year was one of
the biggest gaming drops in modern memory. On launch day, the servers
hit their cap. 1.1 million more fans sat watching on Twitch as players
battled log-in issues.To get more news about WoW Gold Classic, you can visit lootwowgold news official website.
While main-franchise expansion Shadowlands is expected any day now — Asmongold even admitted he’d end his Twitch hiatus early if the alpha goes live — it looks like Blizzard hasn’t forgotten their Classic fan base either.
The first sniff the game’s original expansion The Burning Crusade could be on its way came in the form of small email surveys sent to WoW Classic players. It looks like Blizzard are set to reveal how they’ll manage Classic’s next era.The developers have to be “very careful” with how they approach this follow-up nostalgic release though, Asmongold warned. Make one mistake in regards to the new launch, and they may “lose Classic fans forever.”
Ever since the release of WoW Classic, and how well it did — I think Blizzard even said it more than doubled their subscriber numbers — it comes as no surprise to me that they’re going to want to continue that success,” Asmongold said.
“Giving fans the opportunity to play the expansion again, and go through the Dark Portal for the first time is great… I myself can’t f**king wait. It’s like going from Dark Souls 1 to 3, it’s an improvement. They [Blizzard] have to be careful though.
“The first option Blizzard gave out [in the surveys] was to upgrade all the Classic servers into Burning Crusade servers. Do not do this. There’s a reason people are playing Classic, moving them on from that will alienate them all.Asmon added this would be a “big mistake,” as would Blizzard’s second choice: a full reset. A level reset would be “the most authentic,” he admitted, but disagreed it was the way forward. He dismissed the survey’s third and fourth options too.
According to the Twitch streamer, the best way forward for The Burning Crusade re-release would be to “make a 2.0 server” that everyone can transfer over to with their level 60 ‘toon.’ The kicker? They bring none of their gold or items.
“Have everyone transfer over to that server with no gold and no items, and then in two months, have the dark portal open, and have The Burning Crusade officially begin. That’s what I want to see Blizzard do with this release,” Asmongold said.
For players moving to the Crusade servers, they will have something to work towards, and a time period to do it — the two-month gap before the link between Azeroth and Draenor warps open. They won’t, however, be left with nothing.The streamer added Blizzard can’t expect to please everyone. Citing his experience across “every expansion since vanilla World of Warcraft,” Asmongold stated the game “loses players in translation. That’s just what happens, it’s unavoidable.”
Therefore, he continued, they should focus on “making sure it’s the best experience for the players that remain.” Basically, Blizzard should aim for quality over quantity when they return WoW’s faithful to the war against the Burning Legion.At the moment, nothing official has been released from the World of Warcraft creators apart from the player survey. It stands to reason though, if they’re asking their player base about how to release the expansion, it’s close.
The main-franchise expansion Shadowlands will have its beta drop very soon, ahead of a late 2020 release. Blizzard wouldn’t want to have their two big WoW expansions — both classic & modern — compete against each other.
That means we can either expect to see Burning Crusade explode onto the scene quite soon — just like its story, ironically — or potentially drop in early 2021. For WoW diehards eager to jump back into the expansion, let’s hope it’s soon.

|In vanilla WoW, player additions to how WoW looked and gave them
feedback and information were very limited. Some offered a svelte way to
report additional information across the top or bottom of the screen.
Others provided small, discreet windows with additional displays,
whether they were for specific Classic WoW classes, or to track an item
that was obscured in the default UI.To get more news about Buy Cheap WoW Items, you can visit lootwowgold news official website.
Today players tweak nearly every part of the game’s interface. All-in-one packages such as ElvUI change everything from the minimap and spell bars, to damage and healing numbers, and even the chat logs. Some of that is because WoW’s default UI is in desperate need of an overhaul, given that modern principles of usability weren’t pervasive 16 years ago. Some is because today’s Warcraft players are more familiar with the game and technically savvy about what mods can do and how to install them.
The good news for modern players returning to Classic WoW is that addons now exist to provide at least a few contemporary conveniences to the original version of the game. While nothing will provide all the quality of life improvements WoW itself has added over the years to one of the best MMOs of all time, these will give you a few important windows into modern life – nostalgia ain’t all it’s cracked up to be.
Deadly Boss Mods is a must-have WoW addon for 2020 players who participate in group dungeon and raid content, so we’re grateful there’s a WoW Classic addon version. It gives you warnings for events that are happening during boss-fight encounters, timers for when the next events in the fight are going to happen, and advice for what to do as a result.
DBM-Classic comes with voice packs in English, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Chinese, and Korean along with a couple of packs spliced together from celebrity voice tracks. It includes timers and information for the five-man dungeons Deadmines, Wailing Caverns, Shadowfang Keep, The Stockade, Ragefire Chasm, Blackfathom Deeps, Razorfen Kraul, Razorfen Downs, Gnomeregan, Uldaman, Scarlet Monastery, and Zul’Farrak. The developer notes that functionality for the vanilla WoW raids has been built, but couldn’t be tested during the Classic Beta due to level caps.
This simple addon for the WoW Classic Auction House won’t help newcomers, but will save trade veterans a lot of time and effort by simplifying inputs, searches, and letting you spam the buy button to purchase in bulk. If you plan on making a lot of gold through the AH then this is a great time-saving WoW Classic addon.
Questie attempts to provide one of the most useful features of modern WoW’s map UI: the ability to see where quest objectives and turn-ins are located. This WoW Classic addon is still a bit of a work in progress, but it solves one of the most frustrating aspects of Classic WoW. Quest descriptions in vanilla varied widely in their wayfinding tips, so sometimes the area where the thing you were supposed to find/kill/collect wasn’t immediately obvious.
OmniCC is a lightweight little mod that adds digital countdowns to pretty much everything that has a cooldown in World of Warcraft: your spells, your abilities, even items in your inventory. Providing much more specific information than the traditional analog timer sweep in Classic, this vanilla WoW addon allows you to make intelligent decisions about what you can do next when you’re in a fight.
It turns out that the Live version of OmniCC works perfectly in Classic, so a helpful developer dressed it up and reposted it for vanilla players. As a note, this means that you can download the current version as well, if you like, as long as you enable out-of-date addons in Classic WoW (so that the version number doesn’t trip up your install.
