Subscribe To A Classic World Of Warcraft Raid Is Back, But Not For Long Updates
For a limited time only you can take part in a classic World of Warcraft raid. Yes, Blizzard is reaching deep into its pool of classic raids from bygone eras of its most popular MMO, and resurrecting them for gamers who may have missed out back when the raids were all the rage.
Over on the official World of Warcraft website, Blizzard announced that the Wrath of the Lich King Timewalking event has brought back the Ulduar raid. It's available right now and will last up until the middle of this current week. More specifically, until February 20th you'll be able to boot up your copy of the massively multiplayer role-playing game, and take part in the classic raid sessions from the Wrath of the Lich King expansion from a decade ago.
The news piece explains that the raid difficulty is set to normal and that it won't be available through the Raid Finder. The minimum level of participation is 80 or higher, so you'll have to put in a bit of time to earn your right to take part in the raid.
Like most raids in World of Warcraft, you'll be able to bring anywhere between one and 30 players with you into battle. If you're tough enough you can attempt to solo it, but obviously having 30 people will likely make things go by a heck of a lot smoother than if you attempted Leroy Jenkins your way through the raid. However, be sure to keep in mind that the raid will scale in difficulty based on how many people are in your raiding party and what gear you're decked out with.
You'll have to gather your party and travel to the Dalaran located in Northrend. Once you speak to Vormu you can then access the special Timewalking event version of the classic Ulduar raid.
While you won't be able to search out the raid from the in-game finder you will be able to use the new Group Finder utility to help create a raiding party to go take on the challenge. Alternatively, you can make use of the newer World of Warcraft features like the "Premade Groups" in order to quickly lob yourself into a party and go adventuring.
There have been lots of new expansions released since then, and countless updates to patch, fix, modify, and upgrade the long-standing MMO to keep up with today's times. It's kind of crazy to think that some of the people who helped make the expansion have gone on to lead development on games like Blizzard's Overwatch, which is currently available for home consoles and PC.
Nevertheless, if you want to take part in a small journey back in time via the Timewalking event, you can do so right now in World of Warcraft with the Ulduar raid.
