You’ve taken Azeroth by storm. Now a dark frontier awaits you beyond the Dark Portal. Return to a lost era of Azeroth and enjoy the timeless stories that defined this world at war.
Burning Crusade Classic is a faithful recreation of the original release of World of Warcraft®: The Burning Crusade®. Enter the Twisting Nether and explore Outland—the shattered remains of the once beautiful orc homeworld, Draenor. Battle to level 70, ride majestic flying mounts, and master two additional races: the mystical blood elves and the pious draenei.
With the release of Burning Crusade Classic, new realm types will be added to WoW® Classic. If you already have characters on WoW Classic, you’ll have to choose what path your characters will take going forward.
Will you carry on to Outland and face the challenges beyond? Or will you remain a stalwart champion of Azeroth and continue to defend this world at war?
Characters on Progression realms will continue to experience content updates as they become available and will have access to all the features included in Burning Crusade Classic. All current WoW Classic realms will become Progression realms.
Characters on Era realms will continue to play in the Shadow of the Necropolis content update. We recommend this realm type for players who want to continue to adventure only on Azeroth. Before Burning Crusade Classic launches, you’ll have the opportunity to move your existing characters to an Era realm for free.
