Wrath of the Lich King Coming to World of Warcraft Classic

Following the annual release rhythm, Blizzard has announced that it will be adding the Wrath of the Lich King expansion to World of Warcraft Classic this year. One of Warcraft’s most highly regarded expansions, Wrath will send players to the lands of Northrend, where the titular Lich King Arthas Menethil and his ever-growing Scourge Threatening the entire existence of Azeroth.

One of the most important aspects of WoW with Wrath is allowing players to take on the character as the game’s first new hero class, the Death Knight. Death Knights will be adding the classics in the pre-expansion patch, and as usual, every available race can turn into one of these undead powerhouses. Both factions can use them, and new death knights start at level 55.

Dungeon Finder, which allows players to cooperate in a 5-player dungeon with a group of random adventurers, is considered to be contrary to the spirit of World of Warcraft classics, and will remain unavailable in the game.

Other features that come with Wrath of the Lich King include an inscription crafting pro and a barbershop that will offer more options than the original iteration that debuted in this expansion. Also, using the barbershop does not require real money transactions like it originally did, which is yet another breakthrough in reliving these expansions at the time, but the quality of life has still changed.

Wrath of the Lich King is coming to Warcraft Classic this year, but all we know is a vague 2022 timeline. We will forward more information about its release when it becomes available.

In addition to announcing the return of Wrath, Blizzard also revealed the latest expansion pack for the live game called Dragonflight, which brings the heroes of Azeroth to the long-awaited Dragon Island.
