WoW Classic TBC continues to improve with regular post-launch updates making balance changes, bug fixes, and plenty more.

With this in mind, here's all the latest WoW Classic TBC updates and their patch notes.


Latest - Karazhan, Magtheridon's Lair Improvements and Bug Fixes

The last few weeks of WoW Classic TBC updates have been very active, with patches touching on both Karazhan, Magtheridon's Lair, and then plenty of bugs and QOL improvements across the board.

These are the latest WoW Classic TBC updates from the last week:

Burning Crusade Classic - June 15-22

June 21

  • A new upgrade to Auction House service responsiveness was implemented for all realms.
  • Players who have completed the Trials of the Naaru without receiving the Tempest Key can now obtain one by speaking with A'dal in Shattrath City.

June 18

  • [With regional restarts] Area 52 Bruisers are no longer shirking their job duties and will now intervene to break up nearby fights.
  • [With regional restarts] Fixed an issue where repeatedly clicking a Soulwell would unintentionally consume additional charges under certain conditions.
  • Fixed an issue where a Priest’s Prayer of Mending would persist on the target if it fails to find a new target to jump to, true to reference behavior.
  • Activating Prismatic Sphere's cooldown should no longer put enchanting materials on cooldown.
  • Fixed an issue where Socrethar was not made vulnerable by Voren'thal's Presence for “Turning Point.”
  • The Aldor will now come to your aid during the quest “Deathblow to the Legion.”
  • Fixed an issue where Halaa Battle Tokens were not granted as expected.
  • Fixed an issue where Warchief Kargath Bladefist could charge outside of his area and reset the encounter.

June 17

  • Warlocks are no longer revealed on the arena frames if they sacrifice a demon before the gates have opened.
  • Magtheridon’s Lair
    • Fixed animation issues with Blast Nova and Quake.
    • Blast Nova now always has a raid warning when cast.
    • Blast Nova will no longer be immediately recasted if he was interrupted before he began channeling.
      • Developers' note: Magtheridon's Blast Nova was set up in original Burning Crusade in a way that it was possible for players to see a raid warning for an attack that would never come, or for Mag to use an ability without warning. These misbehaviors were recreated in Burning Crusade Classic as we matched the boss configuration with our pre-nerf reference. With the fixes above, we've made it so that Blast Nova is used consistently after a raid warning, and no longer fails to be put on cooldown if interrupted during its cast.
  • Karazhan
    • Fixed an issue where Shade of Aran's Dragon Breath was dealing more damage than intended.
  • Fixed an issue where the title "Champion of the Naaru" would be repeatedly granted to players who had earned it.

June 15

  • Short term buffs are no longer removed upon the Arena gates opening, true to 2.4.3 reference.
  • Fixed an issue where the events from “Deathblow to the Legion” Netherstorm quest could fail to progress.
  • Paladins who are defeated in Netherstorm or Tempest Keep dungeons and resurrect automatically at the Spirit Healer will once again generate threat with their periodic abilities.
  • Fixed an issue where weapon master’s would also teach the Crossbows skill when learning the Bows skill.
  • Fixed an issue where Priest’s Shadowfiend would attack enemies that are crowd-controlled.
  • Repaired an issue where some dungeons and raids were not applying PvP rules on PvP servers, causing PvP flags to incorrectly expire.

AH, Enchantment Improvements

Burning Crusade Classic

  • [With regional restarts] The Auction House has been upgraded to improve performance.
  • [With regional restarts] Commander Ameer in Netherstorm has salvaged a prison orb from his last scouting mission and could use your help retrieving a key to unlock it.

PVP Objectives Fixed to Work in Instances

PVP objectives in TBC are very rewarding for players in all areas, be it leveling with quests, dungeons, or in open world PVP.


These objectives offer buffs for the faction controlling them, and with the latest WoW Classic TBC update - they've been fixed to work properly inside local instances.

Check out the latest update's patch notes below:

Update Addresses Character Boost Errors, Buffs PVP Honor Gains

PVP has been a hot topic since the start of the WoW Classic TBC pre patch - most especially on how much Honor points players should gain during this time.
