You need to know WoW: TBC Classic in Phase 2

Blizzard has finally unveiled an official release date for World of Warcraft TBC Classic's second phase of content.

World of Warcraft TBC Classic's Phase Two is on the horizon, and with that, the first season of PvP arenas will come to an end.

Depending on what region you're in, TBC Classic Arena season one will end on Sept. 7 following the normal weekly reset. For European servers, the season will end on Sept. 8 following that region's weekly reset.

Following the end of Arena season one, players will still be able to use leftover arena points until season two begins. Gladiator gear from season one will be discounted as well in preparation for the new season.

Once season two begins, any arena points that players have will be turned into honor. For every one arena point that a player has when season two begins, they'll receive 10 honors.

Along with PvP Arena season two, players will be able to take on two new raids—The Eye at Tempest Keep and Serpentshrine Cavern—beginning Sept. 15. These raids will be released to Classic servers in their "pre-nerf" state, giving players the opportunity to play through their encounters as they were in the early days of The Burning Crusade 14 years ago.

Phase Two will bring a sizeable update to TBC Classic:

Tempest Keep, which was notoriously bugged upon its original release, will presumably be fixed and completable. Serpentshrine Cavern, which was borderline impossible due to its immense difficulty, will still present a tough challenge for players of all skill levels and gear quality. If you and your guild are still struggling in raids from Phase One, though, you'll be happy to find that its PvE content is being nerfed once Phase Two launches.

New factions and open-world content

If you're used to the modern version of World of Warcraft, the first update after the launch of an expansion usually brings about a massive new zone with tons of new quests. That wasn't the case in The Burning Crusade. Instead, the only new open-world content that players will have the luxury of playing comes in the form of daily quests for two new factions: Ogri'la and the Sha'tari Skyguard. The latter of those factions rewards players with the iconic Nether Ray mounts for hitting the Exalted reputation rank. The Nether Rays stand out as some of the most well-made mounts in The Burning Crusade and are definitely worth grinding reputation for in Phase Two.

PvP season two

With Phase Two of TBC Classic comes the game's second PvP season. The second season of TBC Classic PvP will introduce several sweeping changes to the game, but none will be more prevalent than the alterations to PvP gearing.

Phase Two will add Faction Battlegear to the gearing process, which is essentially a shortcut for new level 70 players to gear up and get ready for PvP content. To earn a faction's Battlegear, a player must reach at least the Honored reputation rank with a specific faction. In addition to those changes, players can expect the PvP ladder to be reset, while there will also be an increase to the amount of Arena Points earned by players in matches. Gear purchased with those Arena Points will go down in price in Phase Two as well.

Plus, for players who partake in Battlegrounds, updates to the queueing systems should be expected in Phase Two. Blizzard has been testing Battleground matches taking place between members of the same faction to reduce queue times on Classic servers.

Quality-of-life features

Several quality-of-life additions, such as Guild Banks and Druids' Swift Flight Form, are going to be added to The Burning Crusade Classic in Phase Two. But no addition is going to have more of an impact on the game than the "Looking for Group" tool that's hitting the servers once Phase Two launches.

The tool will allow players to recruit other people for dungeon and raid groups, but the process won't be completely automated. You'll still have to do the legwork of bringing players into your group. In addition, you won't be able to recruit players who play on other servers to your group. While this new feature won't be as fleshed out as the automated, queue-based Dungeon Finder tool that was added to the game in Wrath of the Lich King (and still persists in modern WoW), it certainly lays the groundwork for it.

For now, you need to prepare everything now, investing in some items or storing more TBC Classic gold to enjoy TBC's new adventure. If you want to buy cheap WoW Classic TBC gold, mmopixel is a professional store. Feel free to visit us at any time.
