World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King Classic

In this article, we will be exploring the most frequently asked questions about WotLK Classic. As you may know, we talk to hundreds and hundreds of customers on a daily basis. We get a lot of questions regarding how the games we support work and try to answer them as much as we can. I wanted to write an article with all these questions so it is useful for everyone! 😊

Is WotLK Classic Worth it?

People have been waiting for this expansion to come to Classic for a long time. In another situation, this wouldn’t even be a question, to be honest. I feel like this is asked mostly because Dragonflight release is pretty soon and people are not sure which one to play. Let me clear this up first; WotLK doesn’t take a lot of time! Yes, you’ve read it right. After you are level 80 and somewhat geared, all you have to do is to raid once a week and maybe do some Heroic dungeons now and then if you are a semi-casual player.

For me, the most time-consuming part was the leveling. It takes around 45 hours of playtime if you are not playing a very slow melee class. If you are looking to just enjoy the expansion, you can buy a leveling boost service from Blazing Boost and get to 80 while you are busy with your real-life responsibilities.

TLDR; WotLK Classic is definitely worth it. Even feeling the atmosphere and playing with like-minded old-school people is relaxing!

How long will wotlk classic last?

WotLK Classic is supposed to last for at least 2 years. There is a lot of controversy around this topic actually. As you may remember, there was a poll posted by Blizzard right after WotLK Classic release asking if there should be a Cataclysm Classic. While some players think that Classic versions should stop at WotLK Classic, some want to experience it until at least WoD. Thinking that there is a huge fanbase of the expansion Mists of Pandaria, it’s most likely going to go on until then. If Blizzard decides to stop at WotLK Classic, it may go on forever (until there are only a few players remaining at least).

How much is wotlk classic?

WotLK Classic is free, as long as you pay for the monthly subscription 💰However, there are 2 upgrade options that give you certain benefits in the game. The first one is the Northrend Heroic Upgrade. It gives you:

  • Level 70 Character Boost
  • Expert Riding Skill for the Boosted Character
  • Appropriate Gear for the Boosted Character, a Mount, and Starting Gold (It gave me 100 gold 🤣)
  • Fishspeaker’s Lucky Lure, a toy to summon your very own Tuskarr Fisking Companion

The second one is Northrend Epic Upgrade and apart from the ones I listed above, it gives you:

  • Kalu’ak Whalebone Glider, a flying mount for your Classic characters
  • Tuskarr Shoreglider, a flying mount for your Non-Classic Characters
  • 30 Days of Game Time

So is it wise to pay for these? If you know how painful it is to level 1-70, you know that it is the wisest thing to do! 🥲

Can you fly in Azeroth in Wotlk Classic?

Sadly, you cannot fly in Azeroth in WotLK Classic. You are only allowed to fly in Northrend (if you have Cold Weather flying. If not, check out this article) and Outland. I also found out that if you fly around Dalaran in Northrend, you may get dismounted randomly.

Can you Buy Gold in WotLK Classic?

NO. In full caps: NO. We deal with a lot of situations for our customers. And this is the most frequent ban reason we come across. Blizzard literally tracks the gold you buy from mass sellers. It’s like IRL money with a serial number. Anyone who touches that gold is doomed 90% of the time. So what can you do if you are broke in the game?

If you have time, you can play the Auction House like the great investor you are and make a lot of gold. Another way, if you have too much time on your hands (and many seasons of Netflix series) is to farm mats and sell them at the Auction House. If you have a group of friends or if you are a tank/healer you can even rent yourself to people who are running dungeons and ask for blues they don’t need. After the dungeons, you can disenchant and sell the mats or use them yourself to create enchants for a bigger profit.

If you don’t have time to do these yourself, fret not! We offer gold farming services. Our booster literally hand-farms you gold and maybe even a profession you want in the meantime. We are very flexible, just throw in whatever you need and we will make you a bundle. Add us on Discord: BlazingBoost Classic#4507

Is there an armory for wotlk classic?

The original armory was first announced in 2007. I actually dug up the original IGN article about it. So, it was there before WotLK. We don’t have it in the current WotLK Classic for literally because of reasons we don’t understand…

We need to use third-party websites that don’t work properly. If you’d like to see someone’s arena progress you can check them on Ironforge. If you’d like to see their raid progress you can check them on Warcraft Logs and hope that they haven’t changed their realm recently, as they don’t come up. Another way of sharing your gear is EightyUpgrades. It’s not very viable though as you literally fill in all the information by hand. Thus, people could just fake their gear.

Your last alternative is to tell people to meet you in front of the Auction House for an inspection 🥲

Is there a dungeon finder in WotLK Classic?

There is no dungeon finder in WotLK Classic. There is actually something, an LFG tool but you cannot really call that a “Dungeon Finder”. It basically lists you for specific dungeons you want to do but you still need to interact with people and invite them into groups etc.

How to Get WOtlk Classic Addons?

There is nothing I like more than flaunting all the addOns I use to people! First of all, you can use the old-school manual way. You find an addOn on the internet, and put it in World of Warcraft>_classic_>Interface>AddOns, which requires you to manually download and copy the files every time there’s an update.

The other way is *drumroll* Curse Forge! All you have to do is to download it here. The UI is pretty easy to use. You locate your game folder and then download whatever addOn you need. It also shows you the ones that need to be updated. Here is my addOn list for WotLK Classic:

Will WotLK Classic Have Transmog?

Transmogrification was added into WoW with the patch 4.3.0, which is Cataclysm. We most probably will not see transmog in WotLK Classic but you can download the addOn Narcissus to try out gear on your character’s 3d model and take screenshots of it.

What are the best classes to play in WotLK Classic?

I see this question a lot and to be honest, I am pretty hippie about this: Play whatever makes you happy. Race? Pick whatever makes you feel the best. Do you feel like a gnome warrior with pink double ponytail hair? Become one! But I know in the competitive scene it doesn’t work this way. So let’s get down to the numbers. Here is the PvE class tierlist:

  1. Affliction Warlock (S-Tier)
  2. Unholy Death Knight (S-Tier)
  3. Assassination Rogue (S-Tier)
  4. Frost Death Knight (S-Tier)
  5. Arcane Mage (S-Tier)
  6. Demonology Warlock (A-Tier)
  7. Balance Druid (A-Tier)
  8. Survival Hunter (A-Tier)
  9. Enhancement Shaman (A-Tier)
  10. Marksmanship Hunter (A-Tier)
  11. Shadow Priest (A-Tier)
  12. Fire Mage (B-Tier)
  13. Retribution Paladin (B-Tier)
  14. Feral Druid (B-Tier)
  15. Combat Rogue (B-Tier)
  16. Elemental Shaman (C-Tier)
  17. Arms Warrior (C-Tier)
  18. Destruction Warlock (C-Tier)
  19. Fury Warrior (C-Tier)
  20. Beast Mastery Hunter (C-Tier)
  21. Blood Death Knight (D-Tier)
  22. Subtlety Rogue (D-Tier)
  23. Frost Mage (D-Tier)

Do not feel bad because you play a class that is A-tier, I spent all my time leveling a Frost Mage which ranks worse than a Blood DK (A TANK!) in PvE class tierlist! 🤣
