Here’s how to play World of Warcraft Classic

Today is a big day for World of Warcraft fans, as Blizzard is launching WoW Classic. WoW Classic is Blizzard’s official attempt at (and answer to) vanilla servers that have proven to be popular with WoW fans. With it, fans will be able to play World of Warcraft as it more or less existed shortly after it released in 2004, with no expansions and none of the major modern improvements.To get more news about buy WoW Classic Items, you can visit lootwowgold official website.

If you’ve ever felt nostalgia for the old days of WoW, then this release is aimed directly at you. Expect progress to be a lot slower, with more of a focus on questing and gradual improvement over a longer period of time than simply getting to endgame content as fast as possible. So, when can you play?

For those of us here in the US, WoW Classic launches today, August 26th, though depending on where you are in the world, its release date may be Tuesday, August 27th thanks to the wonderful magic of time zones. Have a look at the map below for when WoW Classic will launch in your region.

This is definitely a North America-centric launch, with the game going live at 6pm EDT in the east and 3pm PDT in the west. If you’re in Europe, you’re looking at a late-night launch – 12am on the 27th for France, to be specific. Folks in Taiwan, Korea, and Australia are stuck with the game going live in the morning hours of the 27th, so they have it even worse.

Unlike the latest retail expansion, WoW Classic doesn’t need to be purchased upfront before you can play. All you need to play is an active subscription to WoW – which means that most people who are interested either don’t need to do anything to gain access to WoW Classic since they’re already subscribed or simply renew their subscription. Subscriptions to World of Warcraft run $14.99 per month, and while monthly subscriptions are a rarity here in 2019, WoW is still popular enough for Blizzard to justify requiring them.
