WoW Classic Phase 6 might be coming earlier than we’ve been expecting. There’s a rumor going on that this content update might be dropping at the start of December 2020. The source is a Tweet from Nano, a member of the Nostalrius Project.
As you may or may not know, Nostalrius was the largest private WoW Vanilla server before WoW Classic was released. The private server was eventually shut down by Blizzard. Some of the members were consulted by Blizzard regarding the release of WoW Classic.
When asked about the source of the rumor, Nano said that he is protecting the identity of the informer as he doesn’t want the person to lose their job. This suggests that it might be a Blizzard employee. Nano also says that he is not 100% sure about the accuracy of the rumor. Nothing was officially confirmed yet and until then we cannot tell for sure when Phase 6 will come.
BlizzCon as we know it will not be happening this year due to the pandemic outbreak but this doesn’t rule out the possibility of an online event. If that happens, we might have more info about WoW Classic Phase 6 in about a month or so. BlizzCon normally takes place at the beginning of November.
WoW Classic Phase 6 is the wrap-up of the year-long release. We’ve had Phase 1 that brought the two 40-player raids Molten Core and Onyxia. Phase 2 came with the honor system and world bosses. In Phase 3, 40-player raid Blackwing Lair was added. Phase 4 saw the release of 20-player raid Zul’Gurub and Arathi Basin battleground. Phase 5, the phase we are in right now, brought The Scepter of the Shifting Sands quest chain and the war effort event that led to the opening of the two Ahn’Qiraj raids.
Phase 6, whenever it may come, will bring that last raid available in WoW Classic. This is 40-player raid Naxxramas. This last phase will begin with the Scourge invasion. This server-wide event will see some of the high-level zones invaded by flying necropolis.
There will also be PvP events in Silithus and the Eastern Plaguelands. During these two events, players can earn Argent Dawn rewards. The events conclude with the opening of Naxxramas. This is a five-wing raid. Players can clear the first four wings in any order. The last wing unlocks after the first four are cleared. The fifth wing has two bosses: Sapphiron and Kel’Thuzad.
If you need more WoW Classic gold to prepare for the last phase, there always an option to buy them at GoldPiles.
