“Programmers have scoured through seller lists and treasure tables to get items that were added in patches, then attached them to the staged material unlock plan,” they wrote. “This means that when a new item was originally added to some dungeon boss’s loot table with classic gold wow with Ahn’Qiraj, you shouldn’t expect it to look at WoW Classic until Phase 5, that’s the stage that contains Ahn’Qiraj content.
“Along the way, we’ve seen many questions asking if we are also retracing the steps of incremental adjustments to individual items and their stats which might have happened throughout original WoW. Such a plan could be called progressive itemization.'” Itemization, for example, will be taking cues from patch 1.12 of the classic World of Warcraft, choosing not to factor in the progressive tweaks which were created with various subsequent updates.
“Here is a good example of innovative itemization,” wrote the devs. “The Tier two warrior Helm of Wrath originally had Spirit and Agility on it, as well as critical strike chance. In Patch 1.5.0, the helm’s stat budget has been altered to Stamina, Strength, and Defense, together with elemental resistances. Then in Patch 1.7.0, the quantity of Defense on the helm was reduced. In Patch 1.8.0, the 5-piece set bonus which included the helm was adjusted to operate with Whirlwind, and in 1.9.0, it obtained a better look with an art update.

World of Warcraft Classic, in whatever form it will take, hasn’t been slated for an specific release yet, however BlizzCon is not too far away today, so there is a fantastic chance we’ll hear more afterward.
Blizzard embarked on the complicated process of creating World of Warcraft Classic, a separate project from the ongoing game which will see a reboot into the match system, bringing it back to how it played when the MMORPG behemoth first came out many years ago. However, as its statement, almost nothing was said about it out of the simple fact that it’s in development and seemingly going smoothly to buy wow classic gold. Now, however, we did receive a tidbit of where the process is at.
