As the first expansion pack of WoW Classic, Burning Crusade Classic relives the era when players first entered the Shattered Realm of Outland through the Dark Portal many years ago. Players can freely choose whether to enter the Burning Crusade Classic era, or stay in the original game without the first expansion pack.
The Classic TBC Gold pre-expansion patch on May 18th begins the transition to Burning Crusade Classic. When players log in after deploying the patch, all players must choose whether to continue entering Burning Crusade or transfer to a special set of servers that will remain locked in the Vanilla Era WoW where the level cap is still 60. Like WoW Classic, Burning Crusade Classic is included in a WoW monthly subscription at a cost of $15. The player does not need to pay any additional fees, unless the player wants to purchase a level upgrade or clone the player's character so that it can continue to play on the original server.
Burning Crusade is WoW's first expansion. It is a very different game from modern WoW, but it also does a better job of forcing players to socialize and collaborate. Classic is about going back in time, just like WoW Classic, the many rough edges of Burning Crusade will be people's favorite. However, if players are already playing WoW Classic and have a great time, Burning Crusade Classic will be amazing.
Burning Crusade Classic and WoW Classic will actually be two separate TBC Classic Gold games. Players can freely choose which game they want to play. When Burning Crusade Classic is launched, each player will decide whether to continue into the Burning Crusade era or stay in the classic era, with a level cap of 60. All current WoW Classic servers will continue to enter Burning Crusade, and players who want to continue using Classic will be transferred to a new set of vanilla servers, where they can continue to play WoW Classic.
In addition, Blizzard provides a role cloning service for all players. Players can pay to clone a character so that players can play it on WoW Classic servers and Burning Crusade Classic servers. It is essentially just a copy of the player's original character. Burning Crusade Classic works in roughly the same way as WoW Classic. The expansion pack will be divided into several stages, roughly similar to the real-time update that Burning Crusade originally received in 2007. Every few months, Blizzard will launch a new phase and introduce new raids, dungeons and features. Players can visit MMOWTS to accumulate a large amount of Classic TBC Gold in advance to experience a brand new gameplay.
