Hi, what are you looking for?


The WoW: Wrath of the Lich King Classic beta is live – has a lot of bugs

The Wrath of the Lich King Classic Beta has begun. You can finally go back to Northrend and relive your WoW childhood.

Slowly but surely, a childhood dream is within reach for many WoW fans. Wrath of the Lich King Classic is coming in 2022 – and it’s now in beta. Blizzard wants to put the “new, old” expansion through its paces here. This is also necessary, because there are still numerous strange or serious errors that would spoil the fun of the game.

What is already available in the beta? In the first week of the Wrath of the Lich King Classic beta, Blizzard wants to test the basic gameplay during the level phase, as well as the revision of the group finder tool. At the same time, the use of interface extensions (addons) is completely prohibited, so that all players are initially forced to play with the standard interface. But that also helps to get pure feedback, in which possible errors caused by addons are definitely ruled out.

How to play? If you still want a chance to get into the Wrath of the Lich King Classic Beta, you can sEsports Extrasup for it on the official WoW Classic site.

Are there any restrictions? Yes. For the time being, the maximum level is limited to 76 in the beta, after that there is an XP ban. In this way, Blizzard ensures that the content in the level phase in particular is extensively tested, limited to the first areas.

Later, the level cap will be removed as the focus shifts to testing the heroic dungeons and other endgame content.

Numerous bugs still in the beta: The fact that Blizzard cannot simply take over “the old WotLK from back then” 1:1, but has to reset a lot of content by hand, is also shown by the abundance of bugs and errors that still exist in the current version. Some of the funniest – or even the most serious – mistakes are:

  • Mana and energy regeneration for several classes is not yet working correctly.
  • The Argent Tournament in Icecrown looks pretty bugged. It’s missing a lot of objects and actually needs to be removed entirely (since it doesn’t exist at this point).
  • Haste rating does not increase cast speed.
  • The “Battle for Undercity” questline still has many bugs and cannot be completed correctly.
  • Death knights have many bugs: missing voice effects, death runes don’t work.
  • Demons scale incorrectly with Warlock stats and are way too strong.
  • Leaving a vehicle can result in a disconnection.
  • Many NPCs in Orgrimmar spawn out of place, becoming half or fully buried.
  • Vendors in Dalaran are still buggy and are already selling loot from later patches.

As you can see, there are still quite a few bugs and issues that Blizzard is already aware of, in addition to those that players will hopefully uncover in the beta.

Are you in the beta and already leveling your first hero in Northrend?
