Hey everyone, the Classic Wrath of the Lich King prepatch is right around the corner, and with it comes a bunch of time limited content for you to enjoy, some of that stuff will disappear eventually, but some of it you will get to keep forever, and there's definitely a lot of stuff that you'll want to obtain before it's gone here. So I figured today we'll go over all the content that the prepatch has to offer and how to can do to take advantage of it, from crazy good items to hidden stuff to fun interactions, today we're exploring all the things that the prepatch will bring for you once it releases and how you can obtain all of it in the limited time it's gonna be up for.
Alright so first, when you think WOTLK prepatch you obviously think Zombie Invasion, this event is the headline of this prepatch, and you may know it as the one and only period of time in wow where devs intentionally tried their hardest to make the game unplayable for players. The way it works is that at first, those conspicuous crates start to appear in booty bay and in most capital cities, at first the only way to turn into a zombie is to intentionally click on those crates, for the first few days you won't be able to spread the plague to other players but you'll still be able to attack them and cause mayhem. And then as the prepatch progresses, new phases will start and each phase makes the world more and more chaotic by making the zombie plague bigger and harder to contain, and easier to spread, notably by biting other players. And the thing is, this plague doesn't just affect capital cities, but also the outside world, including most starting areas and even Shattrath. So that's why this event is so infamous, back in the day in 2008 players complained at lengths for not being able to level their characters, use the auction house, or simply get anything done at all in the game, it was pure chaos and it seems like Blizzard is bringing that back.
Scourge assaults around the world, the scourge invasion is a series of mini events that will take place around the world, every now and then one of six zones will be attacked, those being Blasted Lands, Winterspring, Eastern Plaguelands, Tanaris, Burning Steppes and Azshara. When one of those zones is attacked, there will be a series of crystals around the zone that you will need to destroy, the way you do that is basically by killing the scourge that spawns around these crystals, until four cultist engineers will appear, you can disturb those which will then turn into a Shadow of Doom, a powerful elite enemy and defeating that will reward you with a bunch of Necrotic Runes, you also get Necrotic Runes by killing the smaller enemies too.
Those Necrotic Runes are the main currency of this event, because with it, you'll be able to buy a bunch of stuff from the Argent Dawn Quartermaster, which is where most of the time limited stuff available with this event will come from. Now to be honest, if you're not specifically into collecting stuff, most, if not all the things here will be completely useless for you, that being said, if you have a bunch of level 70 ungeared characters like I do, getting them the undead slaying sets is gonna be the easiest way to gear them. This gear is comparable with Karazhan gear, so nothing really special here, but it 's definitely gonna help you when levelling throughout Wrath, both the shoulders and gloves are obtainable from here, but the chest and legs drops from the elites that appear in the scourge invasions around the world that we talked about a second ago, the chest drops off the Shadow of Doom and the pants from some rare elites that appear random around those crystals too. The other noteworthy items from this vendor are the trinkets, Argent Banner, Argent Tome, and probably the coolest of them Argent War Horn, both the Banner and the tome are pretty boring, they do a bit of AOE but they're definitely not worth equipping over any other trinket. The War Horn, however, will summon a paladin NPC that will fight at your side for 30 seconds, this NPC looks good, especially for Horde, it's basically a blood elf wielding Ashkhandi and a fitting transmog, the alliance version is just the grand marshal set and sword, and the fun gimmick that this guy has is that once the 30 seconds run out, he will cast bubble and start fading away, pretty cool and fun interaction and this is definitely a trinket I'll be getting just for the sake of having. Other than that, honestly as I said, unless you're a collector who wants to get everything from here, there isn't anything else important to get, personally I will definitely try to get everything from this vendor because why not, but if you're not after gear or the fun war horn trinket, you can just skip this all together, it's up to you.
Next up, other than the scourge, the Lich King also sent a few of his lieutenants around the world too, inside dungeons and raids specifically, from Shadowfang Keep to Scarlet Monastery to Karazhan, most of those bosses are not very much worth doing, unless again you're a the people who want everything, that being said I don't think any of those appearances are unique, with the exception of one, which is the one you get from the boss in Karazhan, Tenris Mirkblood. Infact Tenris is the only boss who has his own quest which you can pick up from your capital city, you'll find him in one of the rooms above Attumen, he's not very hard but obviously it's Karazhan so you'll be bringing 10 people anyway here. Now he drops two items, first and least important of which is the Vampiric Batling, a pet, which actually everyone in the raid will be able to get, so this is quick and easy to get and remember there's a pet tab now so this is not gonna take bag space. But the second, coolest, and most important item to get is the Arcanite Ripper, this, is a freaking axe which can turn you into undead for 10 seconds, this is one of those items which is extremely rare on retail nowadays and that everyone wants because it looks so cool and has such a unique effect. But I couldn't get a clear answer to how rare this item is, unfortunately, even if it's 100% drop chance, only one person in the raid can get it, and raids reset every week, and the prepatch will only last for 4 weeks at most, and there's a reason why this axe is so rare, I wish you good luck on getting it.
Finally, level your characters, because on top of the already active Joyous Journeys 50% experience buff, boosting levels through Azeroth and Outland is also gonna get way faster in the prepatch. The moment the prepatch drops, you'll notice that the XP required for every level has been reduced by an incredibly big amount, your character will start doing way more damage overnight, and you'll also notice that a lot of quests are way easier to do around the world, so really, I would take this opportunity to level as many characters as you possibly can. I can't give you an exact number of how long it's gonna take to get from one to 70, but I bet you'll be done with it in first of the time it used to take you before, so take advantage of it.
