World of Warcraft The Burning Crusade, also known as TBC or BC, is the first expansion to World of Warcraft. It was launched on October 28, 2005 and was released in Europe the night of January 16-17 2007. It includes a higher level cap of 70, the introductions of Draenei and Blood Elves as playable races, Outland, which includes many new zones, dungeons and quests, as well as many monsters. There were two versions of the expansion: a Standard Edition as well as a Collector's Edition.
The Burning Crusade quests are a continuation of the original World of Warcraft timeline. The quests take players to Outland, the former Draenor world. The main story revolves around Illidan, a traitor, and his experiences over the years since WoW Classic. You can also complete quests to either assist Illidan or prepare for his downfall. There are many connections between the former Draenor world and the current Outland. For example, the opening of Medivh's Dark Portal can be relived in Caverns Of Time. Additionally, there are various quest lines that offer insight into the relationship of ancient Orcish shamans with the Burning Legion well before the First War.
The following annotated gallery contains images from the Burning Crusade Launch.
