    After months of rumors and leaks, Blizzard announced World of
    Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic, which will bring WoW Classic players
    to the Burning Crusade expansion soon. But revisiting the expansion
    won’t be exactly the same as players remember, as the Classic rerelease
    will include a number of changes from the original.To get more news

    Burning Crusade was a huge moment in World of Warcraft history. The
    game’s popularity exploded during the expansion’s original launch in
    2007, and it introduced important new features, like arena, and popular
    playable races, like the Blood Elves and Draenei.

    In the time since WoW Classic’s release, Blizzard has become more
    willing to make small technical and quality-of-life changes to the game,
    straying from the studio’s original design philosophy of keeping the
    game exactly as it was 15 years ago. This is being carried forward into
    Burning Crusade Classic, as a number of significant changes will make
    for a different experience than the one fans first played over a decade
    ago.



    One of WoW: Burning Crusade Classic’s biggest changes comes in the
    form of allowing players to create Blood Elf and Draenei characters
    prior to the expansion’s official launch. This will give players time to
    level their characters up to 60 before Burning Crusade’s release, an
    option not available back in the day.



    Blizzard will also be offering paid, once-per-account level 58
    character boosts. These are intended to allow players who didn’t play
    through WoW Classic to jump straight into the new expansion, rather than
    spending hundreds of hours leveling through the original game. Notably,
    these boosts will not work for Blood Elves and Draenei.



    Much like WoW Classic, Burning Crusade content will roll out in
    phases. This is a big change from the original, which technically
    included access to the majority of the expansion’s content all at once –
    even if most of it was inaccessible without spending hundreds of hours
    completing various attunement requirements.Many players complained WoW:
    Classic’s raid bosses felt weak, thanks in large part to WoW Classic
    running on a late-game patch that adjusted bosses and game mechanics,
    oftentimes making raids easier. That won’t necessarily be the case in
    Burning Crusade Classic. Though the game sounds like it will also run on
    an easier, late-expansion patch, certain bosses will be in their
    pre-nerf states, at least for a time. This means guilds will likely find
    many raid encounters more challenging in the first few weeks of any
    given raid’s availability, until Blizzard makes adjustments.
