The Scourge Invasion

The Scourge Invasion threatens all of Azeroth with massive amounts of Undead attackers. Players must come together to defend their zones from the undead horde to defeat the invasion.

The Scourge Invasion has been updated from its Vanilla WoW form. The number of mobs and number of required zones defended to win the Scourge Invasion has been doubled in Classic WoW to account for better players.

This means players must defend 300 zones from the Scourge Invasion before it is complete.

You can read over our Scourge Invasion guide to get a full overview on how to participate and the rewards you can earn.


WoW Classic's final raid will be Naxxramas. This raid is by far the most difficult yet, and offers massive loot including Tier 3 armor.

Naxx Attunement

To get into Naxxramas, you'll first need to be Attuned.

BIGGER THINGS: We aren't in AQ 40 any longer

To get Naxx attunement, you'll need to complete a quest at Light's Hope Chapel in Eastern Plaguelands, which requires players get Honored with the Argent Dawn, then turn in a ton of gold and expensive materials.

Players that push to higher reputation levels with the Argent Dawn, however, will save tons of gold in the process. This is because higher reputation levels have to pay less for the Naxx attunement quest. Those reaching Exalted with the Argent Dawn won't have to pay a thing.
