[HOT] : WoW: Burning Crusade Classic Adds Two New Raids, Guild Banks & More

Players can now venture into the Serpent Sanctuary Cavern to take on Lady Vashj or ascend Storm’s Eye Dungeon to defeat Kael’thas Sunstrider in the first World of Warcraft content update: Burning Crusade Classic, Overlords of Outland.

While the update, which launches today * i, makes the new raids technically available, a lengthy harmonization process is required to enter each instance. Players will need to have completed several other raids, long quest chains, and heroic dungeons in order to truly participate in the new content of Burning Crusade Classic. The update also marks the start of a new Arena Season, with new gear up for grabs, as well as the introduction of two new factions with which to gain reputation in exchange for rewards.

Aside from the new content, the update adds some highly anticipated features like Guild Banks. Prior to this point, guild leaders often created multiple level one characters and used their bag space and bank to store the various guild crafting materials and supplies. This process quickly became cumbersome, with those who manage guild banks having to log out of their main character, log in with one bank character (or more), and coordinate materials between all of them. Guild Banks greatly simplify this process, making it easy for members to deposit and withdraw items.

While not the automated matchmaking tool introduced in later expansions, Overlords of Outland also brings a group browser game tool. This allows players to list their party, or themselves, available for various activities like dungeons, raids, PvP or quests in the tool, from which they can send invitations or be invited themselves more. easily. Before the tool, players recruited for dungeon games or raid members by simply using the in-game chat features and manually inviting players into groups.

Overlords of Outland comes as Blizzard seeks to clean up its culture both in-game and outside following a lawsuit in California accusing Activision Blizzard of fostering a culture of harassment and discrimination against women. Following the allegations in the lawsuit, Blizzard has pledged to remove inappropriate content from World of Warcraft, which will include removing several references to former Blizzard developers like Jesse McCree in the upcoming 9.1.5 patch for Shadowlands.
