Blizzard Entertainment has announced that World of Warcraft Classic has been updated to bring Blackwing Lair into the game. In the new raid, level 60 WoW Classic players can take on eight bosses in the Burning Steppes and earn some of the game’s finest loot if they’re lucky.
In the dark recesses of Blackrock Mountain’s peak, Nefarian, the eldest son of Deathwing, conducts some of his most awful experimentation, controlling mighty beings like puppets and combining the eggs of different dragonflights with horrific results. Should he prove successful, even darker pursuits rest on the horizon.
Entering the raid, however, requires an attunement quest that sends players off on a journey to slay General Drakkisath in order to access the Orb of Command. Once done, the raid opens for those who have completed the quests.
There are great reasons to plumb the depths of Blackwing Lair: Each class has the chance to score some “Tier 2 set items and their associated bonuses”. Items include bracers, belts, boots, gloves, shoulders, and chests. In addition, other items can be dropped and players will be able to loot the much-sought-after Elementium Ore that can be used to begin the journey to forge Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker.
