Blizzard Entertainment announced that the Ahn'Qiraj event, which is well-remembered, will be starting on the World of Warcraft Classic servers on July 28.
The Gates of Ahn'Qiraj Event will be launched in WoW Classic on July 28th
After unlocking the gates to the city-kingdom, players can access two raids: a 20-player raid or a 40-player one.
World of Warcraft Classic's developers have announced the date when the Ahn'Qiraj, one of the most memorable events in the game, will start. It will take place on July 28th this year.
A post on the official forum for the game.
Ahn'Qiraj will test the Covenant and Horde members and will require them to work together and abandon animosity. To finally open the gates to Qiraj's city-kingdom, the players will need to collect many resources and complete a series tasks. Then, they will be able to fight the inhabitants of Qiraj.
After opening the gates, players will be able to access two raids: the Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj (20 players) or the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj (30 players). C'Thun, the most powerful antagonist in World of Warcraft Classic, will be the boss of the second raid.
The original Gates of Ahn'Qiraj
The screenshot above shows that the climax of the original event, Gates of Ahn'Qiraj (or the battle for the gate), is fondly remembered by those who were able to participate in it. It is worth noting that this was the first large-scale event of its kind in the game's history, and the first time such an experiment was conducted by the developers. It was not without difficulties - at one point, the servers crashed - but this moment is a highlight in the game's history.
We remind you that World of Warcraft Classic servers launched in August 2013. The classic WoW is still available. However, the "normal" WoW will be unavailable. This year's production by Blizzard Entertainment studio will include Shadowlands, an eighth addition.
