Classic Wrath of the Lich King will include "some changes"

Classic Wrath : This news signals a change in approach to the creation of World of Warcraft Classic, which had the intention of being a 1:1 recreation of the first massively multiplayer online game.

#NoChanges is a hashtag that was initially made famous by the most devoted members of the World of Warcraft fan community. This hashtag encapsulates the underlying principle that guided the creation of Blizzard’s throwback version of World of Warcraft, known as WoW Classic. It was intended for WoW Classic to deliver an authentic recreation of the world’s longest-running massively multiplayer online game (MMO), and for the most part, it did so.

The original experience was preserved in Classic, flaws and all, with the exception of a few insignificant tweaks, such as the addition of a clock to the user interface (UI) from the very beginning (presumably to avoid players from abruptly realizing they’ve missed several days of labor). Nevertheless, in a post that was published not too long ago, Blizzard detailed a somewhat revised design philosophy, in which the company explained why certain adjustments are required to deliver the greatest possible experience. Let’s go through the most important differences.

Naxxramas Buff

The redesigned version of Naxxramas that was released in 2008 was supposed to be less difficult to complete than the version that was released in 2006; nevertheless, according to Blizzard, the revamp ended up being far simpler than it was intended to be. There was a long wait till Ulduar, and Naxxramas had been smashed into meaty bits by even casual raiders a long time before that. As a consequence of this, Blizzard will be increasing the health and damage of the creatures and bosses that are found throughout the expansive raid.

Keep Heroic Dungeons Relevant

Veterans of the original World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade may recall that around halfway through the expansion, Heroic Dungeons became exceedingly simple. As a result, players began to view them as a nuisance that needed to be endured in order to obtain their daily emblems. Blizzard intends to rectify that, making certain that the heroic dungeons continue to be difficult and continue delivering great gear – although the specifics are currently unknown, Blizzard is investigating ways to increase obstacles as the expansion progresses.

Perform maintenance on the Itemization and Raid Lock Systems.

Emblems and raid lock-outs had multiple revisions and changes as a result of Wrath of the Lich King, and it wasn’t until the Trial of the Crusader that they were standardized on a single model that would be used going forward. Blizzard is implementing this final model from the very beginning of the game in order to create a more uniform experience for players. This will ensure that raid lockouts and emblems operate in the same manner regardless of the material that is dropped.
