‘World of Warcraft Classic’ Release Date, Latest News, Update: Details About PvP Content of Reimagining Finally Revealed
The team behind “World of Warcraft Classic” has pleased its community once more by announcing details regarding their plan about PvP content. To put briefly, the developers are planning to roll out changes through the six phases that have been previously announced.
“As was the case when ‘World of Warcraft’ originally launched in 2004, there won’t be a formal PvP system in [World of Warcraft] Classic at the outset. You’ll still be able to PvP, of course, and there will be no Dishonorable Kills, so you’ll be free to repeatedly hunt down every player and NPC in, say, Stranglethorn Vale to your stealthy heart’s content,” said community manager Bornakk.
He added that the second phase will add the Honor System, heralding the arrival of Honorable Kills, Dishonorable Kills, and PvP Rank Reward. The third phase of “World of Warcraft Classic” will focus on the addition of Alterac Valley and Warsong Gulch with their respective vendors.
Arathi Basin Battleground will be inserted in the fourth phase. The fifth phase has little to do with PvP other than potentially adding some items that are missing in the shop during the launching of the third phase’s vendors. And lastly, the sixth phase of “World of Warcraft Classic” will inject Silithus and Eastern Plaguelands, introducing the world PvP objectives.
Following the announcement, players were quick to praise the team as they have so far kept their promise to make the reimagining as authentic as possible. And with the developers already addressing spell batching in “World of Warcraft Classic,” the PvP content of the game is becoming more and more appealing.
The problem here is that Blizzard has yet to provide information on how long these phases will roll out, which means there’s no telling how long gamers will be stuck in a particular phase. The first phase will start on Molten Core and the sixth phase will add Naxxramas. Regarding when “World of Warcraft” Classic will be released, Blizzard hasn’t announced anything on that front either. As of this writing, the only details about the game’s launch is that it will drop sometime this summer.
