Classic WoW Servers Go Live in August
- Server stress tests will precede launch date.
- Secure your character name on August 13th.
- Servers will launch in version 1.12.
It was only three years ago that Blizzard devs answered fan demands for classic servers with their infamous “You think you do, but you don’t” line. Well now at last this idiocy is fully put to rest with the official release date of Bilzzard supported classic servers: August 27th, 2019.
On the official website, you can check exactly what hour each time zone will be able to log in to these servers, as well as the stress test schedule for those currently in the beta. For those who currently have an active subscription, you’ll be able to secure character names starting on the 13th of August.
Remember that these classic servers will be set to the 1.12 Drums of War patch, the final version of vanilla WoW. That means that battlegrounds, itemization, and class mechanics will conform to their 1.12 forms, but as was mentioned in an earlier post, raid rewards will still be gated behind similar time frames as they were in early vanilla.
Who among you will be going back, and why? Who among you will not, and why? I, myself, most likely won’t have the time for it, though even if I did, I don’t know if I’d want to deal with all the emotional weight that comes from revisiting the past. Perhaps for me, the Undercity is better left as a memory, but you never know… the Alliance aren’t going to kill themselves, after all.
