The Burning Crusade has proven very popular with World of Warcraft Classic gamers, and more content is being planned by Blizzard.
Instead of providing everything included in the original expansion, WoW Classic: TBC will see several phases released across 2021.
The Burning Crusade will soon boast The Serpentshrine Cavern, Tempest Keep The Eye and the Guild Bank.
For now, Blizzard has not revealed when the returning content will be released, but it appears things are getting closer.
WoW Classic: TBC Phase 2 has been in testing on the Battle.Net PTR for some time, and August seems like the perfect time to launch the next content drop.
WHEN IS THE BURNING CRUSADE PHASE 2 RELEASE DATE?
Blizzard has not confirmed a full release date for WoW Classic TBC: Phase 2 but based on previous launches, The next Burning Crusade could be available between August 18 and August 20.
This remains a prediction for now, meaning there could be delays or changes in how Blizzard decides how to launch its next big patch.
If anything is being planned for this week, Blizzard will share an official update before everything kicks off, possibly on August 16.
The official name of the new update will be Overlords of Outland and will likely require some kind of maintenance period.
And here’s everything we know is coming as part of Burning Crusade Phase 2, via the PTR patch notes:
- Slay the twisted Lady Vashj and her vicious fiends in her watery lair—Serpentshrine Cavern.
- Raid bosses: 6
- Level: 70
