WoW Classic Season of Mastery

Note: Activision Blizzard is still under investigation by the state of California for serious harassment charges.

World of Warcraft Classic is getting a bit of a refresh soon. Blizzard announced the Season of Mastery today, revealing that players both old and new will have the opportunity to start fresh on new WoW Classic realms. This means beginning a level one character with completely reset Classic content.

Blizzard isn’t just giving players a fresh place to start, however. These new realms are also designed to offer players a bigger challenge than was available on the first Classic rollout. Just as with the first release of Classic, the developer plans to roll everything out in six phases, but they will unlock more quickly – over a period of 12 months. Don’t worry, since the pace will be increased, leveling will be faster too.

In addition, players should expect more of a challenge from raid bosses. While Blizzard tried to re-create the difficulty of old-school WoW the first time around, players apparently found it to be a bit easier due to experience. So, the devs have made some changes, such as disabling world buffs in raids, restoring specific mechanics, increasing boss health, and doing away with the boss debuff limit.
