Following the Scourge Invasion event that kicked off WoW Shadowlands, WoW Classic is in for its very own undead rampaging signalling the opening of Naxxramas. Blizzard’s Community Manager Kaivax posted a message on the official forums of the game to reveal how the invasion will be adjusted compared to its 2006 debut.
Given the number of endgame players per realm nowadays, as well as how much more knowledgeable players are when it comes to optimizing gameplay, we feel that it is pertinent to make several changes to the event. We calculated that it would be easy for some realms to be completely done with the invasion portion of the event in less than five days, so our primary goal is to allow more time for players to participate and not feel rushed.
- The number of zones needed to complete each stage has been increased to 100/200/300.
- The total duration for the bonus dungeon bosses, vendors, and quest givers has been increased from three to four weeks and will end on December 31.
- An additional one-week period has been added, beginning after 300 zones have successfully been defended on each realm. During this extra week, invasions will continue to spawn to allow players a final chance to participate and gather the rewards.
- This additional week cannot extend beyond the end date of December 31.
