The Burning Crusade launched in 2007 is said to be the first official Wow expansion. It kind of set the standard for the Wow expansions that followed after this. The Wow Classic players often say that the Burning Crusade is a server that is true to the game’s authentic mood.
In this expansion, conflicts and various bugs were identified and fixed upon while the level cap was raised to 70. It won’t be wrong to say that the Wow Classic Burning Crusade’s fans are still loyal and large in numbers. We have personally not seen such a craze fanbase for any other version of the game.
The Wow Classic Burning Crusade Gameplay:
In the Classic Burning Crusade, two playable classes were introduced: the Draenei and the Blood Elves. The primary was for the Alliance, whereas the latter was for the Horde. Blizzard saw an opportunity to expand more and even introduced a full-fledged planet, known as Outland. The planet was said to have various quests, raids, zones, creatures, and whatnot!
This expansion even marks the end-game raid boss’s introduction and other prominent characters from The Frozen Throne. It was at The Burning Crusade that Blizzard started to incorporate more of WOW in the storyline.
The standard ground mounts were more accessible and cheaper, whereas the flying mounts were just restricted to the corners of the Outland. The expansion paved the way for customization of the talent system and new abilities, as the level cap increased by ten times, right from 60 to 70.
The Shaman and Paladin classes are now only a part of Vanilla, making them automatically exclude themselves from the Horde and Alliance.
More stat boosts started being added up to the players as the server brought a rise to the jewel crafting profession. Speaking of additions, let’s not forget that the Arena PvP was first witnessed here.
- One of the few servers to remain authentic to the core game
- Has a large fan base even today
- Lots of features that we get to see today in WOW marked their debut from this expansion.
- Became a base for all the expansions that were released after it.
- It’s very much time-consuming in comparison to other expansions. It may take you 20+ hours to complete this expansion.
- Lots of features of the expansion have become outdated and provide a horrible playing experience. TBC is just good for nostalgic purposes.
- Each year, The Burning Crusade gets older and older.
- Many players feel that this expansion is all about the ‘kill 25 demons quests’ stereotype.
- How long was NAXX out before TBC?
Ans: There’s around a six months gap between Naxx and TBC, as the latter got released on January 16, 2007.
- What level to start playing Burning Crusade?
Ans: The minimum requirement and the recommendation level to begin with Burning Crusade is level 10.
- How long did the Burning Crusade last?
Ans: If we take out an average, then we see that all the expansions last for some two years, before the next expansion hits up. Mostly Blizzard announces the release of expansions at BlizzCon, and Gamescom.
The Burning Crusade is one of the most criticized expansions and one of the most popular ones. Surprised? To be honest, this response of TRS is something that even surprises us! On one side, we have a group of players who have long ago moved on from TRS, whereas on the other side, there’s a group that still sticks to the core and talks praise of the TRS. At the end of the day, it’s up to you whether you want to enjoy this expansion or move on ahead from it!
