WoW Classic: Is King Varian Wrynn Coming in 1.13?

The last official patch for the original World of Warcraft Vanilla was patch 1.12.1 in North America on September 26, 2006. At least the last one before The Burning Crusade — with the exception of Europe only (which got 1.12.2) and the Traditional Chinese localization only (Patch 1.12.3).

The Burning Crusade expansion was launched in the United States on January 16, 2007.

At that point in time, the Warcraft lore was in flux. Between Vanilla’s end with Drums of War (1.12) and the launch of World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade expansion, new lore had been brewed by the Creative Team.

Wildstorm Comics (later under the DC Comics label) launched the World of Warcraft comics series issue #1 on November 2007. Written by Walter Simonson (Known for his Thor, X-Men, X-Factor, Fantastic Four, and other works).

For the lore in the Comics to have been published on November 2007, that means the lore had been in development for at least a year — which coincides, precisely, more or less with Patch 1.12 (Drums of War).

How to buy Severely Rusted Lockbox in 8.2 Nazjatar?

There is sort of a Murloc vendor game that rewards a Severely Rusted Lockbox (sold by Mrrl). This box contains a random loot table (updating soon what it contains).

Confirmed so far: Barnackled Lockbox (Requires Locksmithing x 600).

To start the game, you need first to unlock access to Mrrl. This is done by searching for his injured body at Dragon’s Teeth Basin (48.26 45.20). Start the quest A Safer Place.

UPDATE: This guide has been rendered inaccurate. I have discovered that today the requirements to buy Severely Rusted Lockbox can be (4) (2) (4). Next day, it might be (1) (2) (1), etc. There is a random-generated value system in place. Therefore, no guide can ever be made.

In that quest, you escort him back to Newhome (Horde) or Mezzamere (Alliance). Then when he settles at Newhome (46.97 61.56) or Mezzamere (39.17 54.41) do the follow up quest “No Backs.”

That way you familiarize with the 5 murlocs needed to obtain Severely Rusted Lockbox.

How To Opt-In to World of Warcraft Classic Beta

World of Warcraft Classic Beta begins May 15, but not many people know how to join. First, there won’t be such thing as Beta Keys. Anyone claiming such has no good intentions. So don’t fall for phishing scams.

The true way to get into World of Warcraft Classic is by opt-in via your Battle.net account page (USA). Depending what your geo location is, you may want to change the “us.battle.net” to your location’s (i.e. Europe, China, etc.)

Not a lot of people will be chosen to participate in the Classic beta. Keep that in mind. But not everyone knows how to opt-in. So your chances just grew bigger.

Blizzard CEO Hints Multiple MMOs Using New World of Warcraft Classic Engine

During a Forbes interview Blizzard CEO J. Allen Brack hinted the World of Warcraft engine built for World of Warcraft Classic could be used to develop other MMOs, but specifically other type of World of Warcraft games.

This is quitely interesting, because Blizzard could actually create alternate worlds of World of Warcraft, or even set in other time periods. Think of it as a whole game based on the War of the Ancients time or shortly after the Sundering. What kind of world would that be storywise? Instead of a Caverns of Time dungeon, think of a MMO based on a particular time in Warcraft history.

Technically, the new technology built for the World of Warcraft Classic can also be used for a Overwatch MMO or a StarCraft MMO. It does have its challenges, but J. Allen Brack doesn’t rule it out. Read this exchange and make your own conclusions:
