The WoW Classic ZG content is being released today, April 15, as part of a new Phase 4 launch. Blizzard announced its plans earlier this month and have even revealed what time fans can expect everything to unlock. And the good news is that World of Warcraft gamers can expect a few other rewards thrown into today’s update.
Blizzard has announced that the WoW Classic ZG release time has been set for 3pm PST, in the United States.
For gamers in the UK, this will mean a late launch for the new Phase 4 content. Taking into account the time difference, gamers across the pond can expect the new WoW Classic Zul’Gurub update to go live at around 11pm, BST.
As ever, gamers should be ready for delays and changes to update schedules, especially during current world events.
Many companies have been timing their updates differently to make sure to alleviate the extra server strain currently being experienced.
And as mentioned above, the Zul’Gurub 20-man raid isn’t the only new thing being added to WoW Classic today.
On top of the Zul’Gurub raid, World of Warcraft gamers will also get access to the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza, and Dragons of Nightmare event.
Details on the new content coming to World of Warcraft can be found below, courtesy of Blizzard.
Hidden in the jungles of Stranglethorn, an ancient Troll city full of peril has been uncovered. Do you have what it takes to delve into its mysteries with a band of hardy explorers? There’s only one way to find out! Zul’Gurub is a high-level, 20-man raid instance with 120 new rare and epic items to uncover. Adventure awaits!
Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza
The Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza is a grand new event set along the coasts of Stranglethorn Vale. Early on the appointed day, friendly neighborhood goblins will visit Ironforge and Orgrimmar to inform aspiring anglers of the grand tournament and give instructions. At the appropriate time, the shout will ring out across Stranglethorn to bait your hooks and cast your lines!
The Dragons of Nightmare
Something is amiss in the Emerald Dream. Immense dragons with the shimmering emerald scales of the Green Dragonflight have been sighted guarding the portals at the Great Trees. These once-noble creatures crawl with a new, strange menace, not the peace for which Ysera is known. Bring many allies should you dare to confront them; their powers are formidable and they will not hesitate to crush any who draw near.
