Blizzard has confirmed that the long-awaited Ahn’Qiraj update for World of Warcraft Classic will be released on July 28.
“We’re putting the finishing touches on the next patch for WoW Classic. Version 1.13.5 will go live in July,” reads a post from a Blizzard community manager on theWorld of Warcraft forums. “With that patch, we’ll be ready to unlock the content we’ve been testing on the PTR. The Ahn’Qiraj content will unlock with the weekly raid reset on July 28 for all realms in this region. At that time, players can begin the quest chain to craft a Scepter of the Shifting Sands, and players can turn in gathered resources to advance the Ahn’Qiraj war effort. Once both of those activities are completed on a given realm, the gates of Ahn’Qiraj will be available to be opened. We’ll see you there!”
As that post notes, it seems that the July 28 release of the Ahn’Qiraj update will be proceeded by a patch designed to help Blizzard push that update live. While there’s no word on when that patch will hit (outside of that vague July window) it doesn’t seem that WoW Classic players will be able to access any new content on the live version of the game until July 28.
As long-time WoW fans know, though, the nature of this update means that there’s really no guarantee regarding when WoW Classic players will actually be able to participate in the new Ahn’Qiraj raid.
that would be a mistake considering the quarantine, most guilds are 8/8 Nefarian down, so no aq for months ? what is there to even do
I doubt most 40 man teams are even close to having all the gear they need from BWL. People are still getting global’d by broodlorde and the 3 drakes on a regular basis.
Back in the day, you would need to farm gear on a boss by boss basis, to progress through the raid. But since we have 1.12 gear and talents the first two tiers are jokes. I doubt AQ will be unclearable with the gear most guilds have from BWL at this point, but it certainly won’t be a cakewalk unless they are stacking massive world buffs and have piles of consumables.
Whats with you people trying to accelerate the game? Most of the population isn’t even on these forums and they seem to be happy with the current release timeline.

Looking for the AQ WoW Classic release date? Players patiently awaiting Phase 5 content in Classic World of Warcraft finally have a release date. The new content includes the questline for Scepter of Shifting Sands and the Ahn’Qiraj War Effort. Completing the War Effort leads to the opening of two raids in southern Silithus for Phase 5: 20-man Ruins of Ahn’Qiraj and 40-man Ahn’Qiraj.
Here’s everything you need to know about the AQ WoW Classic release date and the Ahn’Qiraj War Effort.
AQ WoW Classic Release Date
According to Blizzard, the Ahn’Qiraj content will unlock with the weekly raid reset on July 28. During this time, players can begin the quest chain to create the Scepter of Shifting Sands and start turning in supplies to advance the Ahn’Qiraj war effort.
After both the Scepter of Shifting Sands and War Efforts are complete, the gates of Ahn’Qiraj will be available to open. During this time, a ten-hour long one-time event to obtain the rare Black Qiraji Resonating Crystal is also active.
Becoming a Scarab Lord is no easy task, though. The questline includes 32 quests, with many of them requiring full geared out raids to complete and a minimum of seven days of your time.
What is the Ahn’Qiraj War Effort?
The Ahn’Qiraj War Effort is a server-wide event that takes place before the opening of Ahn’Qiraj. There are three phases to the event, including The Scepter of the Shifting Sands questline, collection of War Effort Supplies, and the Ten Hour War in Silithus. Here are all the required War Effort Supplies for both Alliance and Horde.
Ahn’Qiraj was the toughest raid in vanilla WoW, and one of the most important pieces of original content. We are excited to see if players get the authentic classic experience with rubberbanding and endless disconnects. On the other hand, perhaps fifteen years of optimization will allow for a smooth launch. Either way, the biggest event in World of Warcraft Classic is only a month away. Who will be the first guild to down C’Thun?
WoW Classic Phase 5 release date: War Effort start time and AQ launch latest
World of Warcraft: Official 2010 cinematic trailer
“Due to the raid requirements in the quest chain leading up to the “Bang A Gong!” quest, the earliest that the gong-ringing can occur in Silithus on highly-motivated realms will be just over a week later.
“Once the gong is rung on a realm, the 10 Hour War begins. Once the 10 hours has elapsed, "Bang a Gong!” can never be turned in anymore, the two Ahn’Qiraj raids will open, and the “Treasures of the Timeless One” quest will become available.
“During the 10 Hour War, world bosses do not only spawn in Silithus. Resonating Crystals that spawn major enemies will appear in Tanaris, Feralas, Thousand Needles, and Barrens.
“This is important to know because we expect there to be an overcrowding issue in Silithus on realms whenever large groups of players all go to Silithus at the same time.
"While the negative effects of overcrowding can’t be eliminated, we’re taking several steps to mitigate the worst outcomes.”
Details on becoming the Scarab Lord can be found below, courtesy of Blizzard:
“Ringing the gong can only be done by players who have completed all of the steps of the Scepter of the Sands quest chain before the end of the 10-hour window.
"In addition to raid requirements, players are able to use the Proxy of Nozdormu to deputize other players to help them amass Silithid Carapace Fragments, so this is likely a guild-wide effort to help a chosen individual complete the quest chain.
“Only the first player on a realm to ring the gong will be announced across the zone in Silithus. On realms that have multiple layers, once the gong is rung on one layer, the 10 Hour War will begin on all layers. All players who complete the questline and turn in “Bang a Gong!” before the 10 hours are up will receive the Black Qiraji Resonating Crystal mount.
“Any player who completes the questline up through “The Might of Kalimdor” will be eligible for “Treasures of the Timeless One,” which rewards an Epic weapon, regardless of whether they were able to complete “Bang a Gong!” in time.”

World of Warcraft Classic: Ahn'Qiraj opening, guides, and everything we know
WoW Classic is finally here. And if you love nostalgia, this remake aims to rekindle that insatiable desire to grind that kept so many of us up late into the night. World of Warcraft's vanilla launch—before expansion packs took players to faraway locales and significantly changed the core game—is one of the most pivotal moments in PC gaming. With new (old) features on the way, we're slowly getting a better idea of how the game will be supported moving forward.
Here's everything we know about WoW Classic, including the latest news, update schedule, and more.
What's the latest news on WoW Classic?
Now that World of Warcraft Classic is released, the big news is what features and updates players can look forward to over the months and years to come. Here's the biggest news about WoW Classic:
Right now, WoW Classic is currently in Phase 4, which includes the Zul'Gurub raid, Green Dragon World Bosses, and more.
Coming soon is one of WoW Classic's coolest events ever, the Opening of the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj. Blizzard is currently stress testing its servers in preparation for this event, since thousands of players will congregate in one spot to unleash the terrors hiding beneath Silithus.
World of Warcraft Classic has a botting problem, and Blizzard is only just starting to take extreme measures to curb it. Just last week, 74,000 accounts were banned, and more are coming.
Since launch, World of Warcraft Classic has more than doubled the subscription numbers of World of Warcraft. I guess a lot of people really like Classic.
In addition to all of that, we recently spoke with game director Ion Hazzikostas about Classic's launch and future. The interview is worth reading in its entirety, but one of the more interesting tidbits is that WoW Classic's post-release updates won't follow a regimented deadline. Instead, Blizzard will release new updates when it feels the community is ready based on data collected on how many players have completed whatever the latest endgame activity is.
"We want to make sure that we're not rushing players through content ever and not obsoleting stuff before it has a chance to breathe," Hazzikostas said. "If we're rushing players onto Ahn'Qiraj when most of them only have three or four pieces of their tier-2 sets from Blackwing Lair, that's kind of cutting the content short. We want to avoid that."
Is WoW Classic worth playing?
Absolutely. We gave WoW Classic a score of 80 in our new review, because it's a remarkably faithful recreation of old school WoW that does a great job of evoking that feeling of exploring Azeroth for the first time. While it's clunky and punishing as hell, the community is what makes Classic a joy to play. Players are constantly working together to complete quests, craft gear, and run dungeons, and that social atmosphere alone is worth experiencing.
What WoW Classic server should I play on?
One of the first decisions you'll make when you start playing is choosing which realm you want to play on, and there are quite a few PvP and PvE options to choose from. Take a look at our WoW Classic servers list to see what's available in your region and decide which realm to commit to.
Keep in mind that queues right now are extremely long for most servers during their local evening hours—often extending to two hours or more. So if you want to play when you get home from work, either prepare for a long wait or find a way to log in before the evening rush.
What are the best WoW Classic addons?
Despite Classic being so old, you can still update the user interface with some modern bells and whistles thanks to addons. These mods range from meters that track your aggro against enemies to inventory reworks that make managing bags much easier. And unless you're a purist, we absolutely recommend using at least a few addons to make playing a bit easier.
Check out our recommendations for the best WoW Classic addons.
What WoW Classic race and class is best?
That's a complicated question and one that largely relies on your preferred playstyle. Take a look at our class guide which breaks down each individual class and their relative strengths and weaknesses. Our race and class combo guide will also help you determine the best race for each given class—though we strongly recommend you to go with whatever combination you think is cool. Min-maxing isn't everything.
How much does WoW Classic cost?
The price of WoW Classic is simply the price of a WoW subscription. No additional purchase required—you don't need to go out hunting for an original boxed copy of World of Warcraft. Those who already subscribe to WoW will have WoW Classic included in the price of their subscription. Those who don't actively play WoW will have to sign up to pay the usual $15 USD a month to play it.
How do I level up quick in WoW Classic?
Getting to level 60 is an enormous marathon—something that will take the average player a hundred or more hours. Fortunately, we have a leveling guide that'll help you get to 60 fast. Using this guide, you'll pick up some nice tips especially tailored for this opening week of WoW Classic, when the servers are swamped and quests are hard to complete with so many players competing to kill every monster.
How do I make gold in WoW Classic?
There's a ton of ways to farm gold in WoW Classic, but one of the best methods requires learning crafting professions and selling items on the auction house for other players to use. Have no fear, though, we have a guide to the best professions for those looking to amass an ungodly amount of wealth.
What is WoW Classic, exactly?
World of Warcraft is practically a different game than when it first launched back in 2004. Through a continuous cycle of updates and expansions, systems have been changed, entire continents added, and character classes overhauled countless times. Many people like these changes (modern WoW is more accessible than ever), but a lot of people are nostalgic for Warcraft's days of yore and the way it used to play.
Until WoW Classic was announced, there were hugely popular private servers that illegally emulated World of Warcraft as it existed in 2004. But now Blizzard is creating an official version that it plans to support with continual updates.
WoW Classic is an almost exact recreation of World of Warcraft as it existed in 2006, just before the first expansion, The Burning Crusade, came out. That means combat will be much slower and more lethal, quests will be less intuitive and dynamic, and getting around the world will take a hell of a lot longer. At the same time, WoW Classic resurrects that hardcore breed of MMO that so many people originally fell in love with.
How does WoW Classic work?
WoW Classic is built using patch 1.12, titled Drums of War, that released on August 22, 2006. The reason for this specific patch, Blizzard has said, is because this patch represents the vanilla version of WoW at its most feature-complete, stable, and well balanced. But, like modern World of Warcraft, WoW Classic won't be a static game that never changes. Blizzard wants to recreate the experience of playing WoW between 2004 and 2006 by releasing updates in Classic on roughly the same schedule as the original. The idea is that these updates will introduce new dungeons and core features but won't tinker with specifics like item or ability balance—which will stay the same over the course of WoW Classic's life, rooted in patch 1.12.
Blizzard has plans to roll out six phases of updates that will each introduce new raids, dungeons, items and equipment, and PvP features. These six phases are as follows:
- Molten Core
- You can PvP one another in the world, but there is no tracking, and no formal rewards for doing so.
- Dire Maul
- Honor System (including Dishonorable Kills)
- PvP Rank Rewards
- Blackwing Lair
- Darkmoon Faire
- Darkmoon deck drops begin
- Alterac Valley (version 1.12 869)
- Warsong Gulch
- Green Dragons
- Arathi Basin
- Ahn'Qiraj War Effort begins
- Ahn'Qiraj raid opens when the war effort dictates
- Dungeon loot reconfiguration: Tier 0.5 Dungeon gear, Relics, drop rates and location changes
- Scourge Invasion
- World PvP objectives in Silithus and Eastern Plaguelands
The world events associated with these dungeons and raids, like the Opening of the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj, will also happen. So your dreams of being a fabled Scarab Lord can still be realized.
What comes after is anyone's guess, but I'm personally hoping Blizzard announces plans to also add The Burning Crusade and the other expansions that followed, similar to EverQuest progression servers.
One thing to keep in mind is that while WoW Classic will roll out updates in similar pattern to its original release, all equipment, items, and abilities will mirror their final 1.12 versions. For example, the Tier 2 Helm of Wrath won't undergo constant stat revisions like it did between patches 1.5 and 1.9. Instead, no matter what phase you finally get the helmet, its stats will always be derived from its 1.12 patch version.

World of Warcraft Classic
2019 massively multiplayer online role-playing game by Blizzard Entertainment
2019 video game
World of Warcraft Classic is a 2019 MMORPG video game developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment. Running alongside the main version of the game, Classic recreates World of Warcraft in the state it was in before the release of its first expansion, The Burning Crusade. It was announced at BlizzCon 2017 and was released globally August 26, 2019.
Main article: Gameplay of World of Warcraft
Classic recreates the game in the state it was in after patch 1.12.1, c. September 2006, before the launch of The Burning Crusade expansion. The maximum level of the player characters is set to 60, all expansion content is absent, and almost all the gameplay mechanics of the original version have been exactly replicated. As the game's multiple expansions have dramatically changed the gameplay over time, Classic allows players to relive the original experience, albeit some modern interface and functional enhancements introduced in later expansions have been integrated, as well as re-patching of bugs and exploits that were present at the original release of patch 1.12.
Players can choose from the eight original races of World of Warcraft: humans, dwarves, gnomes, and night elves for the Alliance, and orcs, trolls, tauren, and the Forsaken for the Horde. The original nine classes are present: druid, hunter, mage, paladin, priest, rogue, shaman, warlock and warrior. As in the original version of the game, only Alliance players can become paladins, and only Horde players can become shamans. Races and classes added in the expansions are not available in the game. The game world is restored to its original, pre-Cataclysm state, and expansion areas such as Outland are not accessible.
To emulate the original game's patch release cycle, content in Classic was released in phases. This means that game content originally released in patches, such as the Blackwing Lair, Ahn'Qiraj, and Naxxramas raids, battlegrounds like Warsong Gulch and Alterac Valley, and certain items and quests, became available after launch according to a six-phase schedule. Unlike the content patches for the original game, these phases did not modify the core game mechanics such as character abilities in any way; the game balance has been set to the 1.12.1 version of the game since release.
The option of Classic servers has been a long-standing request in the World of Warcraft community. Every expansion has removed or replaced old content and introduced controversial or unwanted mechanics, resulting in many players expressing a preference for older versions of the game. For example, the game's first expansion, The Burning Crusade, removed the original level-60 version of Kazzak, and in the process, all of the items that he dropped became forever unobtainable. Burning Crusade also added flying mounts, which were criticized for their effect on world PvP; raised the level cap to 70, which was criticized for making all level 60 content obsolete; and opened the formerly faction-specific Paladin and Shaman classes to both factions. The second expansion, Wrath of the Lich King, removed the original versions of the Naxxramas and Onyxia raids and all items that could be obtained from them; added a Random Dungeon Finder tool, which many players felt spoiled the "social aspect" of the game; and made certain UI improvements that were criticized for reducing the need to read quest descriptions. Blizzard repeatedly refused to create legacy servers so that players could stay on older versions of the game. One of their oldest refusals was posted on Feb 21, 2008 by Drysc, who stated "We were at one time internally discussing the possibility fairly seriously, but the long term interest in continued play on them couldn't justify the extremely large amount of development and support resources it would take to implement and maintain them. We'd effectively be developing and supporting two different games."
Versions of World of Warcraft that existed prior to the launch of The Burning Crusade were often referred to as "vanilla" by players, but were referred to by Blizzard as "classic" at least as far back as November 29, 2009, when Vaneras wrote "We occasionally see requests for us to open pre-TBC realms, or classic realms if you prefer. Lately there have also been requests for pre-WotLK realms, and I am sure that once the next expansion pack is released there will be requests for pre-Cataclysm realms as well. We have answered these requests quite a few times now saying that we have no plans to open such realms, and this is still the case today. We have no plans to open classic realms or limited expansion content realms".
Demand for Classic and other legacy realms significantly increased when the Cataclysm expansion revamped the entire original game world, making the majority of the classic or "old world" content forever inaccessible. Blizzard's response at the time, as provided by Tom Chilton, was "Currently, my answer would be probably not. The reason I say that is because any massively multiplayer game that has pretty much ever existed and has ever done any expansions has always gotten the nostalgia of, 'Oh God, wouldn't it be great if we could have classic servers!' and more than anything else that generally proves to be nostalgia. In most cases - in almost all cases - the way it ends up playing out is that the game wasn't as good back then as people remember it being and then when those servers become available, they go play there for a little bit and quickly remember that it wasn't quite as good as what they remembered in their minds and they don't play there anymore and you set up all these servers and you dedicated all this hardware to it and it really doesn't get much use. So, for me, the historical lesson is that it's not a very good idea to do". When the issue was raised at a Q&A panel at Blizzcon 2013, J Allen Brack famously responded "You think you do, but you don't", a phrase which would become the subject of ridicule years later.
Meanwhile, many private servers were being created by the community. Originally, private servers were mere novelties used for experimenting with alterations to the game rules, such as raising the level cap to 255. These early servers rarely had properly scripted raids, quests, or anything else. However, as expansions progressed and demand for legacy realms grew, private servers reversed focus and were seen as a way to faithfully re-create older versions of the game. Private servers emphasizing fidelity to the official versions of the game were referred to as "Blizzlike" and included Feenix, Molten Core, Emerald Dream, Nostalrius, and Light's Hope. The most popular was Nostalrius, which opened in February 2015 and had 800,000 registered accounts and 150,000 active players when it shut down in response to a cease and desist letter on April 10, 2016. In the wake of Nostalrius's shutdown, a Change.org petition for official Classic servers was created and received over 200,000 signatures, and ex-World of Warcraft team lead Mark Kern personally delivered it to Blizzard's president at the time, Michael Morhaime. Blizzard acknowledged the community's desires, and stated they had been discussing legacy servers internally for years but technical problems prevented them from implementing them. Consequently, the Nostalrius team released their source code to Valkyrie-WoW, another long-standing private Vanilla WoW server, hosted in Russia, and the Nostalrius servers returned on December 17, 2016 under the name of Elysium Project, with the player database as it had been just before the shutdown in April.
On 3 November 2017, at BlizzCon 2017, the then-Executive Producer of World of Warcraft, J. Allen Brack, announced Classic on stage during the WoW panel. Details of the project were further revealed in interviews: it was going to be a faithful recreation of the original version of the game, but running on the modern infrastructure. A developer blog post published on 15 June 2018 further detailed the technical implementation, and a panel was held during BlizzCon 2018 that explained the development process behind the game. To create Classic, Blizzard ported the original 1.12.1 game data and assets to their modern server and client infrastructure. This allows Classic to share much of the source code between the modern version of the game, which removes the development overhead of maintaining two different versions of the game, and also means that Classic will have all the performance and security improvements added to the original game server and client that were absent in the 2006 version.
Burning Crusade Classic
In March 2020 Blizzard sent out a survey to Classic players gauging their interest in a Classic Burning Crusade game. After positive reactions it was verified in February 2021. and in the last week of May 2021 it became available for download leading up to its release on June 1st.
PC Gamer scored Classic an 80 out of 100 and wrote, "WoW Classic is more than just a new version of an iconic game, it feels like a window to a time where interacting with people online still felt novel and exciting."Polygon praised the difficulty of Classic and its overall design to nurture "social connections" in comparison to its modern counterpart, calling it a "faithful snapshot of a moment in time".
Since launch, Blizzard has faced some criticism from players for their use of layering technology for the Classic servers. In addition to splitting the communities within each unique realm, players were found to be using the "layers" to exploit the in-game economy. However, as of October 10, 2019 most realms are down to a single layer, with only the highest population servers still utilizing additional layers.
The game won the award for "PC Game of the Year" at the 2019 Golden Joystick Awards, and was nominated for "Game, Classic Revival" at the NAVGTR Awards.
