World of Warcraft is a massive game. One that has, for many people, become a stable for over a decade. As with most long running games, there are features and improvements that might be lost over time. In terms of World of Warcraft, it would be the Ulduar raid. However, it is returning for a limited time.
Ulduar was introduced in the second expansion, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Litch King. Since the expansion released ten years ago, Blizzard Entertainment thought it nice to reintroduce the raid to its game for a little while. Yes, you can go back to your World of Warcraft roots, when Ulduar returns to World of Warcraft during the week of 22 May 2018.
Players can group up with up to 30 players, and complete the raid in all of its classic glory. Newer players need not fret, however. The raid has been updated to make use of the new additions the game engine has received since then. It also has support for the game’s modern difficulty settings and current “more relevant” loot drops and drop rates.
Getting into Ulduar is as easy as using the in-game group finder. A non-playable character (NPC) called Vormu is located in the Crystalsong zone, at Dalaran in Northrend. Vormu will help you on your merry way to Ulduar. Once in, players can expect 14 boss fights which include Old God Yogg, Saron and other terrifying foes.
There is one teeny catch. Ulduar will only be available in this new state until the weekly reset. After that, Ulduar will return to being a legacy raid. This is not the first time Blizzard has reintroduced a raid to modern players with new systems. The company reintroduced the Black Temple raid in the past, during the Burning Crusade Timewalking weeks.
