  • BlizzCon Exhaustion
  • Chromie is only able to keep you anchored in the past for a limited time. Once exhausted, you will need to wait until she has regained enough energy before attempting to come back.
  • Duration: 60 minutes

BlizzCon Exhaustion was the debuff the player received during the World of Warcraft: Classic demo to limit the amount of playtime. The debuff was no longer applied on the second day of BlizzCon.[1]


The demo started with a playtime limit of a cumulative 60 minutes and a cooldown of 90 minutes. Here are some examples of how it may have worked:[2]

  • If one plays for 30 minutes and then log off for 60 minutes, when they come back they'll have a fresh 60 minutes.
  • If one plays for 60 minutes, they'll be disconnected and then have to wait 30 minutes before they can play again.
  • If one plays for 20 minutes, log off for 20 minutes, then play 40 more minutes, they'll be logged off and wait 10 more minutes.
