The day has arrived for the Ahn’Qiraj opening events to begin in WoW Classic.
In order to unlock the 20 player Ruins of Ahn’Qiraj raid and the 40 player Temple of Ahn’Qiraj raid, Horde and Alliance players have to collect supplies in Orgrimmar and Ironforge to support the coming war.
Upon collecting enough supplies, a 10 hour long war event will be unlocked. That will bring Anubisath and Qiraji warriors to Barrens and Thousand Needles, for low level players, and Silithus, Tanaris, and Feralas for higher levels. Fighting there will gain you gold, loot, and faction with the Brood of Nozdormu.
And all of that begins today once the servers are up. Blizzard has a post up describing the event in more detail. And, it seems that at least one server has all the supplies they need stored up in advance, so it will be a very short event there indeed.
I also got a reminder that Holly Longdale is on the WoW Classic team on Twitter this morning.
Let’s hope it isn’t too much like the Sleeper event and the server doesn’t go down.
Meanwhile, Blizzard thinks it has a handle on the lag issues that the event may cause, but we shall see.
