Key art

Patch 3.4.0 is the pre-patch and release of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Classic.


Become a Death Knight[]

The Lich King's armies present an ever-present threat to all life on Azeroth. Some of his most terrifying servants are known as Death Knights—unliving instruments of the Lich King's will.

Learn the Art of Inscription[]

Wrath of the Lich King Classic brings back the first iteration of a beloved profession—Inscription. Learn how to become a master scribe and get the most ink for your book right here.

Begin Earning Achievements[]

Players will be able to begin earning Achievements in Wrath of the Lich King Classic. To view Achievements you've already retroactively earned or see a list of available new Achievements, you can open the interface (default-Y key.) With the launch of the pre-patch, players will be able to view and begin earning Achievements that apply to WoW Classic and Burning Crusade Classic right away. With the launch of Wrath of the Lich King Classic on September 26, all additional Achievements will become available.

There are multiple categories of Achievements that can be earned: General, Quests, Exploration, Player vs. Player, Dungeons & Raids, Professions, Reputation, World Events, and Feats of Strength. By viewing the Summary, you'll also be able to view the latest Achievements earned and any progress made toward earning any additional category Achievements.

Surviving the Zombie Infestation and Scourge Invasion[]

The Lich King is poised to strike! Learn how to (maybe) survive the upcoming plague and Scourge invasion in the Wrath of the Lich King Classic pre-expansion event.

Returning to Wrath of the Lich King Classic[]

Gather your allies and heed the call to arms as Azeroth prepares to face the imminent threat blowing in from Northrend. But if you’ve been on a hiatus, you may just need an assist getting back in fighting shape. To help you, we've put together a support guide to make sure your account is ready for your journeys ahead.
