WoW: Beta of WotLK Classic

Another large wave of invites for the WoW: Wrath of the Lich King beta apparently went out over the weekend. Original: “Wrath of the Lich King Classic beta testing has begun!” – this message appeared out of nowhere on the official WoW website last night. We have all the info for you!

Update from 26 June 2022: Over the weekend, another large wave of invitations for the WoW: Wrath of the Lich King beta apparently went out. At least that’s what various players are reporting on Reddit. One WoW fan even says that ten guild members should have received the launcher update around the same time. Some of the lucky ones had not yet played the Classic version. If you want to check now if you can play the beta of WotLK Classic, don’t check your email inbox, but directly the launcher. Check the “In Development” category in the Game Version section of WoW. If “Wrath of the Lich King Classic Beta” appears there, you’re ready to go!

Original news from June 23, 2022:
The first beta phase of WoW: Wrath of the Lich King Classic started last night! The official World of Warcraft website states: “For the beta test, select players will receive an email invitation with instructions to download the beta client directly from the Desktop App. As always, be wary of phishing attempts – if you’re unsure if you’ve received a genuine invitation, log into your account and make sure you’ve received a Wrath of the Lich King Classic beta license (found under “Game Accounts”).”

The contents of the first beta phase

On the beta server, not all of WotLK Classic’s content will be available to us at the beginning. Invited players can level characters up to level 76 and test the following content:

  • Level and quest experience in the Northrend zones
  • Dungeons
  • New spells, talents and abilities
  • Death knight starting area
  • New systems and features like the new dungeon finder, vehicles, quest phases and inscription lore (plus glyphs).

In the second beta phase, for which there is no official date yet, it should then be possible to level up to level 80 and test heroic dungeons.

What to do when you get to play beta?

If you are selected to participate in the beta test, your account will be unlocked for access.
