World of Warcraft Classic fans are counting down until the release of the next big expansion, WoW TBC Phase 2 – Overlords of Outland.
The Burning Crusade has proven very popular with the fanbase and is now set to expand with new content and features.
The Burning Crusade will soon boast The Serpentshrine Cavern, Tempest Keep, The Eye and the Guild Bank.
And having been put through some thorough testing, Blizzard is now ready to launch WoW TBC Phase 2.
WHEN IS THE BURNING CRUSADE PHASE 2 RELEASE DATE?
Blizzard has confirmed that the WoW TBC Phase 2 release date has been set for Wednesday, September 15, 2021.
And the good news is that a full schedule has been confirmed so that all WoW Classic fans be prepared to start playing together.
A message from Blizzard has revealed that the WoW Classic TBC Phase 2 release time has been set for 11pm BST.
For gamers in North America, All of the Phase 2 content is set to go live at 3:00 p.m. PDT / 5:00 p.m. CDT / 6:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, September 15.
The full statement on the new content reads: “or our Burning Crusade Classic players, we’re excited to let you know that the first major content update, Overlords of Outland, will be going live soon.
“Starting September 15, you’ll be able to take on Prince Kael’thas and Lady Vashj in a pair of iconic raids, engage in a new season of Arena combat, and more. We’re also working on something for WoW Classic players who’ve told us they’d like a chance at a fresh start, and will be sharing more on our plans soon.
“Creating World of Warcraft is truly a collaborative effort between the people on our team, across Blizzard, and all of you—and as we build, iterate on, and talk about what’s next, we hope we can demonstrate our commitment to making Azeroth the best place it can be for everyone.”
Blizzard has also provided a detailed guide on how gamers can access the latest Phase 2 content when it goes live in WoW: The Burning Crusade this week.
The next content update for Burning Crusade Classic is called Overlords of Outland and will make it possible to take on two of Illidan Stormrage’s most powerful lieutenants: Lady Vashj in Serpentshrine Cavern, located in Zangarmarsh, and Kael’thas Sunstrider in The Eye, the central wing of Tempest Keep in Netherstorm.
“Gaining entry to those two new raids requires the completion of certain quest chains with strict requirements. Some of these chains require you to pay a visit to specific dungeons in Heroic mode—each of which have their own requirements to access. Keep in mind that some of these requirements can be bypassed by grouping up with someone who has already completed them, and others can be sidestepped by certain classes or professions.
“Many of these quest chains can be started—and some even fully completed—before you reach level 70 and will reward you with powerful loot that you can put to good use when completing some of the later steps. It’s highly recommended you do most of these quest chains with a full dungeon group (one tank, one healer, three damage dealers), as many of them include visits to dungeons and elite group outdoor quests.”
