The Gates of Ahn'Qiraj Opening in WoW Classic - July 28th (29th in EU)
Blizzard has revealed that the next stage of WoW Classic will open on July 28th (29th in the EU) for all realms.

The Ahn’Qiraj content will unlock with the weekly raid reset on July 28 for all realms in this region.

At that time, players can begin the quest chain to craft a Scepter of the Shifting Sands, and players can turn in gathered resources to advance the Ahn’Qiraj war effort.

Once both of those activities are completed on a given realm, the gates of Ahn’Qiraj will be available to be opened.

We’ll see you there!

    Assuming all the turn ins are done quickly isnt the opening gated behind the quest? Anyone know how many lockouts it will take to compete all that?

    The hardcore minority min/max EVERY game where its possible. Not sure how it affects you personally? If you can't get into PUGs then make your own groups.

    Also the min/maxing started on Retail servers and THEN made its way to private servers, just in case you were gonna try to steer the argument towards that..

    I can't imagine a guild being so bad that they require world buffs and consumables to clear the content. LOL everything is LFR levels of easy in Classic.

    No I take that back, LFR is harder because you have to move and deal with more than one mechanic on top of having a rotation that's more than one button.

    For the opening: don't forget that the someone with the scepter also needs to farm a lot of reputation. So even if they all finish the turn-in quests on day one, they still need about 1-2 month for the reputation farm. And that's on a PvE server, PvP servers might take a lot longer.

    You really think they aren't just going to pick the person that is doing the quest and just assist them in grinding it out?

    And it didn't even take months in vanilla, it took 20 days.

    Pretty sure the gates will be opened on the first days of the 2nd lockout since the patch releases.

    Can almost guarantee it'll be opened as soon as a guild can get back in and full clear BWL again.

    Noice, 10/10 for missing the entire point of world buffs. It is not about the PvE difficulty, it is about speed running/parsing against other players and guilds.

    Really, lying to your most dedicated players, and make them waste 100s of hours? If you ever wonder why you are not running a business, here is why.

    I doubt you can "faceroll" BWL and AQ with Preraid bis.

    And making piss easy content even easier? Sounds pretty dumb tbh. If you don't want difficulty and challenge why are you even playing video games?

    Are you trolling?
    I'll repeat, maybe you'll get it this time. It is not about the diffculty of the content, because it is already super easy. It is about the competition between guilds. And sure, how dare someone have fun in their free time, doing something that is not challenging.
