We expect WoW Classic servers to go down at least an hour ahead of the Burning Crusade Classic launch - but Blizzard have yet to release the official schedule for this.

COMING SOON?: We expect servers to go down well ahead of the TBC launch time

This means players can still hop into the game now to get ahead by getting in front of the Dark Portal early. Players can also get quests done and prepped to turn in right when the new expansion begins, getting up to a half a level of experience before setting foot in Outland.

GOODIES: There are a couple options to get ahead of the pack for TBC

The Dark Portal Pass offers a level 58 character boost (one per account).

The Deluxe Edition offers this character boost along with new mounts, a month of game time, pets, and more.

Both of these deals will be available after the Dark Portal opens, so if you aren't satisfied with the class you've chosen, you can always boost your next choice (as long as it isn't a Draenei or Blood Elf, which can't be boosted).
