It’s time to test out the apex of power in WoW Classic’s first expansion, as the beta for The Burning Crusade Classic has just raised the level cap to 70. This also means that players can now take part in Heroic dungeons and Arena skirmishes while also taking part in the Eye of the Storm battleground, so there’s stuff to try out even if the game hasn’t yet thrown open the door for raid testing.
Meanwhile, character boosting. Yes, people are going to be angry about that one for a while, but it has resulted in more changes beyond just jumping into the game at level 58; there are actually new quests added to the game to provide a brief tutorial to anyone getting boosted and give a rundown of how to play the game. There’s even specific sets of gear for each armor class, although the sets are made from existing models and should look familiar to veterans of the classic game. Whether or not this mollifies anyone annoyed by character boosting remains to be seen (but probably not).
