World of Warcraft: Classic is getting Dire Maul today ahead of the rest of Phase 2

Sorry, guy; you might know Mordenkainen’s Magical Watchdog, but you never actually said you were casting it, so now there’s ogres. Among other things, anyhow. Yes, World of Warcraft: Classic has opened the doors for Dire Maul ahead of the game’s other phase 2 content, allowing players to delve into the ogre antics that come along with it. It will also allow Paladins and Warlocks to undertake their class mount quests, so that’s another set of antics to delve into if you want your high-speed mount for less money than normal but plenty of time spent doing a quest.

For those of you who are more interested in the game’s retail incarnation, you’ll still have something to watch as the Ny’alotha raid moves into testing on Thursday and Friday, giving players first looks at the encounters that lay within. Specifically, it pits you against Maut, Wrathion, Ra-den, and the Prophet Skitra. It’s all on testing, of course, so don’t get too bent out of shape if you don’t get the drops you want. You can’t take it with you.

If you’re thinking that all of this seems a lot like a way to deflect attention from Blizzard’s ongoing public relations fallout the same way it cancelled a launch party and is no longer interviewing people after esports matches, well… we can’t definitively say you’re right. But it sure does seem likely, doesn’t it?

I ended up cancelling my subscription to WOW Classic thanks to their awful Human Rights Violation to appease China. Which sucks because I was thoroughly enjoying WOW Classic.

I remember setting alarms to log onto the auction house in the early morning to see if there was cheap runecloth for the ogre suit! Many moons ago…

As an original player on Eldre’Thalas, I approve/endorse this development.

Ny’alotha spoiler
Just noticed Wrathion (corrupted by N’zoth) is one of the raid bosses :( I hope he doesn’t die for real.

One of Bellular’s predictions is that Sylvanas’ war will end up killing everyone, thus, denying the Void.

So, according to him, that would be the reset that Blizzard would go for in WoW: Everyone dies, everything restarts from the beginning, no more plot armored NPCs.

Would have been easier to have rocks fall on everyone.
