Ulduar Raid Makes a Comeback in World of Warcraft, Complete With Modern Loot

The Wrath of the Lich King expansion for Blizzard’s long-running World of Warcraft MMORPG holds a special place in my heart for a few reasons: it’s where I stopped regularly playing the game after finishing all of its end-game content, and it’s also where I believe the game saw its peak usercount and its best content. Now, a favorite raid from that expansion is returning.

The classic and beloved Ulduar raid is now available for players currently at the game’s end-game content, but is limited to players level 80 and above. The raid was made available via the Wrath Timewalking event, with content to match current end-game stats, so pending your level you’ll receive gear relevant to your stats.

It’s worth pointing out that this event is limited and unfortunately runs out on February 20th, and once the raid becomes unavailable, it will go back to its Wrath of the Lich King difficulty and gear sets.

Blizzard regularly does these revivals of older raids with limited, timed events where you only have a week to farm the raid for the retro-styled gear. The only other raid to get a modern revival prior to this was the Black Temple from The Burning Crusade. If you missed this slot for Ulduar, it will return on May 22nd.

World of Warcraft’s latest expansion, Battle for Azeroth, was recently confirmed for a summer 2018 release. In related news, a new “Classic”, Vanilla-content version of the game is coming, and PVP-only servers were removed.
