So we are getting closer and closer to the date of the TBC release on 1st June. But we are even closer to the pre-patch update on 18th May, so it is high time to get prepared before it starts. In this post, you will learn more about things you can do before WoW TBC Classic comes out.
How much gold to save before TBC?
This is one of the most urgent quests right now. While you still have time you should think about all the stuff you’ll need to purchase in TBC. You will definitely need to learn flight and buy mounts, also you need to cover repairs, professions learning, the hard set etc. All of it is rather expensive in WoW Classic and TBC as well.
So the minimal number for you is around 8.000 gold, but it won’t cover all the expenses while let you buy an epic flight and at least one profession. Thus, you should focus on getting at least 10.000 gold to be sure that you can get ready for raiding fast. In case, you are good at farming gold you can save 25.000 gold which will be very useful and get you covered in any possible situation. Soon we will write a guide about pharming gold before and in TBC.
Get Wrath of Cenarius ring
If you are going to play Protection Paladin in WoW Burning Crusade Classic it is extremely advised to get Wrath of Cenarius ring. It is very powerful and will help you make a strong character.
You can get it after you complete Champion’s Battlegear quest in Silithus. It is a repeatable quest taken from Vargus. But you must have an Exalted reputation level with Cenarion Circle to see this quest. We will let you more in our upcoming guide.
Get useful trinkets
There are two useful trinkets that you can take from WoW Classic to TBC to help you up. Those trinkets are Scarab brooch and Styleen’s Impeding Scarab. The first one will boost your healing and the second one block rate.
- Scarab Brooch drops from Viscidus optional boss from Temple of Ahn’Qiraj Raid.
- Styleen’s Impeding Scarab drops from Flamegor the sixth boss at Blackwing Lair.
Both trinkets gives powerful bonuses and Styleen’s Impeding Scarab is also considered to be one of the best-in-slot trinket for Protection Warrior.
Paladins can consider taking Scrolls of Blinding Light. It drops from Firemaw the fourth boss at Blackwing Lair. Scrolls of Blinding Light trinket transfers to Burning Crusade Classic with some changes but still will be powerful for a start.
Mages can get Mind Quickening Gem. Before you go farm it, make sure to have the quest for Vaelastrasz the Corrupt the second boss in Blackwing Lair. It will appear in TBC with changes too, but it fits for the start for sure.
In addition, you can also get Mark of the Champion trinket. It is not restricted to class, so it is useful almost for everyone. But it is rather hard to obtain as you need to complete the whole questline to bring The Phylactery of Kel’Thuzad to complete The Fall of Kel’Thuzad quest.
Make sure to pick the right class for TBC with our guide: WoW Burning Crusade Classic Class Picking Guide.
Max out professions
You would really like to enter TBC with max out professions. Levelling them can take a lot of time and investment so it is very important to save that time and level them up beforehand. Especially if you have any tailoring or alchemy arms used for cooldown crafts level them to level 50 before TBC. But alchemists should be level 68 and tailors at least level 60 as you will see a lot of benefits starting from these levels that will boost you a lot.
Get the best PvP Titles
When WoW Burning Crusade Classic releases your highest PvP military rank from WoW Classic will show up as an option to be shown next to your name.
ALLIANCE MILITARY RANKS
- Grand Marshal
- Field Marshal
- Lieutenant Commander
- Sergeant Major
- Master Sergeant
HORDE MILITARY RANKS
- High Warlord
- Lieutenant General
- Blood Guard
- Stone Guard
- First Sergeant
- Senior Sergeant
So if you want to get Officer ranks to fight for them right now. As the TBC ranking system has been reworked you won’t be able to get those titles when it releases!
Complete Questlines for extra XP
There are many quests that you can complete right now and boost your character almost to level 62. All these quests contain pick-up quests, raid questlines, hidden quests etc. Almost each of them is described on WoWHead and we will write a simple guide to it soon.
