WoW Classic’s Burning Crusade beta has finally begun

Dead friends.

After a false start yesterday, it’s finally go time for World of Warcraft Classic’s march to The Burning Crusade. Blizzard opened the doors for the beta today, meaning the first opt-in beta testers should be getting their invites and downloads now.

The Burning Crusade Classic beta test has begun! Over the course of the test, we’ll be inviting opt-in beta testers and more to check out the upcoming Classic expansion and give us feedback.

Players selected to participate in the beta test will receive an email invitation directing them to download the beta client directly from the desktop app. As always, please be aware of phishing attempts—if you’re unsure whether your invitation is legitimate, please log in to your account to verify that there is a Burning Crusade Classic beta license attached (under Your Game Accounts).

If you’ve been selected to participate in the beta test, your account will already be flagged for access.

• Make sure your graphics drivers are up to date.
• Run the desktop app—it may need to update itself if you haven’t run it recently. If you don’t have the app installed, get started here.
• Once is installed and updated, select World of Warcraft from the list of games.
• In the Game Version drop-down menu above the Play button, choose the Burning Crusade (listed under In Development), then click Install.
• Allow installation to complete, click Play and select any of the available Test Servers.
• Create a new test character or copy over a character from your live WoW Classic account using the Copy Character button.
• Enter the game and test the content.

Whether you’re a tester or a looky-loo waiting for your golden ticket, you can keep an eye on the beta forums, where Blizz has already posted a known issues list. Either way, don’t panic. You’ve played this game before.

RIP to any MMOs coming out for the next six months to a year as this becomes a content black hole like Fortnite does.

Don’t forget to toss Blizzard some money for their new vanilla cash shop mount, so they can immediately turn around and lay off more workers!



Once the patch hits that makes leveling in Vanilla easier for solo casuals then I will be prepared.
