Now located in the frozen wastes of Northrend, Naxxramas makes its return to World of Warcraft Classic via the Wrath of the Lich King expansion.

This necropolis with the Lich Kel'Thuzad at the helm is back and better than ever. Now that the Lich King has begun to make his moves and his army is in dire need of more firepower, players will return to the scourge fortress that was the final raid of vanilla World of Warcraft.

Here is all you need to know about Naxxramas in Wrath of the Lich King Classic.

In just a few hours, Naxxramas, alongside Eye of Eternity and Obsidian Sanctum, will go live as part of Wrath of the Lich King Classic's Phase 1.

Naxxramas Loot: Notable Drops

THE LOOTFUL LICH: Kel'Thuzad drops several key items

To start things off, instead of Tier 3 Naxxramas will now drop Tier 7. The tier will be a new look on the initial gear and will also hold new set piece bonuses.

Following that up will be items that were considered valuable in the initial version of Naxxramas, which means trinkets and weapons. Trinkets such as Embrace of the Spider, Spirit-World Glass, Grim Toll, Dying Curse, Soul of the Dead, and Bandit's Insignia come to mind. While weapons such as Armaggedon, Damnation, Life and Death, Touch of Horror, The Turning Tide, and Sinister Revenge will be highly sought after.

Other than that, the usual ring or two, and cloaks will also be valuable depending on what stats the player needs.
