The time has come and we all are getting ready for the new era of WoW Classic. TBC Classic is just around the corner and Burning Legion is waiting for you in Outland. In this post, you will learn about WoW Burning Crusade release date 2021, WoW Burning Crusade classic boost and cost for other services and passes that Blizzard has to offer.
WoW Burning Crusade Classic Release Date
TBC Classic will arrive in two stages. First, there will be WoW pre-patch release and after that TBC Classic. So WoW Burning Crusade Classic pre-patch releases 18th May with new features like playing for Draenei or Blood Elves and experience the two races’ new starting zones in the Azuremyst Isles and Eversong Woods, preparing their new heroes for the opening of the Dark Portal. In the picture below you can see Burning Crusade Classic Global Releasing Timing Map.
And after that WoW Burning Crusade Classic Release Date is set for 1st June 2021 with phase 1 on TBC. From the day of the patch through launch, players will also be able to participate in a limited-time in-game event as demonic agents from beyond the Dark Portal pour into the Blasted Lands and assault key locations across Azeroth. WoW TBC Classic phase one includes:
- Phase 1: Karazhan, Gruul’s Lair, and Magtheridon’s Lair Raids will open
Together with pre-patch, you will be able to purchase different services that allow you to boost your champions and more.
WoW Burning Crusade Classic Boost and Transfer Cost
Starting from May 18 with the launch of the Burning Crusade Classic pre-expansion patch, WoW Classic players will choose whether to progress each of their characters to Burning Crusade Classic with the rest of their realm or continue playing the original WoW Classic content on brand-new Classic Era realms also launching that day. Players who wish to experience the best of both worlds will be able to use the optional character cloning service (available May 18, $15 per character), which will allow them to continue playing a copy of an existing character on a Classic Era realm while also advancing into Burning Crusade Classic.
We remind you that you can choose only once and there is no transfer back. You can transfer your WoW Classic character to WoW Burning Crusade Classic for free but there is no reverse. So if you want to leave your character on Classic you either need to level up a new one on TBC or copy it for $15. But this cost is per 1 character.
Also, from 18th May you will be able to purchase Dark Portal Pass for $39.99 which allows players to boost one character of their choosing on a Burning Crusade Classic realm to level 58 (limit one per World of Warcraft account; not usable on blood elf or draenei characters).
WoW TBC Deluxe Edition
Blizzard offers even more. There is special optional Deluxe Edition of WoW Burning Crusade Classic for $69.99 starting from 18th May which includes:
- The Reawakened Phase-Hunter mount, a creature that draws on the otherworldly energies that transformed Draenor into Outland, for use only in Burning Crusade Classic and designed to match the look of the original expansion
- The Viridian Phase-Hunter mount, a variant for use in modern World of Warcraft (including Shadowlands) and reflecting the game’s current visual style
- A Dark Portal Hearthstone for use in Burning Crusade Classic, providing a unique visual effect inspired by the gateway between worlds
- The Path of Illidan toy for Burning Crusade Classic, which causes your character’s footsteps to leave flickering fel fire in their wake for a short time
- The Dark Portal Pass, which boosts one character to level 58 (same restrictions as standalone Dark Portal Pass apply; cannot be combined with standalone Dark Portal Pass purchase)
- 30 days of World of Warcraft game time, providing access to WoW Classic, Burning Crusade Classic, and the modern game
So as you can see Deluxe Edition doesn’t offer transfer of your WoW Classic character and you still need to purchase that service separately.
