Muster your Forces on March 22:

The release of the content update for Burning Crusade Classic provides a variety of changes to help you prepare for your adventures within the heart of the one time capital of the Amani tribe—Zul’Aman.

Dungeon and Raid Updates

  • All Outland dungeons now have been adjusted to their final, reduced difficulty state.
  • Heroic dungeon keys now require Honored reputation (down from Revered).
  • Zephyr has made her way to the World’s End Tavern in Shattrath City, offering players who are Revered with Keepers of Time a free teleport to the Caverns of Time in Tanaris.

Epic Gem Updates

Magtheridon’s Black Sack of Gems and Jewelcrafter’s Brilliant Glass can now contain epic gems. Note that existing Brilliant Glasses and previously looted, unopened Black Sack of Gems will not contain epic gems.

Additional Updates

  • Primal Nether and Nether Vortex are no longer soulbound.
  • Nether Vortex can be purchased for Badges of Justice from G’eras in Shattrath.

Enter Zul’Aman and More March 24:

In the Eastern Kingdoms, just south of the once beautiful elven kingdom of Quel’Thalas, the eerie Ghostlands beckon would-be adventurers, daring them to enter the Amani stronghold of Zul’Aman.

Enter Zul’Aman

Bring your staunchest allies with you if you want to face the dangers within the heart of Zul’Aman and claim the treasures within.

The stronghold of Zul’Aman has stood for millennia as the Amani trolls’ seat of power and bastion of the fearless, cunning warlord Zul’jin.

Zul’jin has spent several years plotting behind Zul’Aman’s walls. Furious at the Horde for allowing his hated enemies, the blood elves, to join its ranks, he eagerly embraced a scheme that the witch doctor Malacrass proposed: to seal the power of the animal gods within the bodies of the Amani’s strongest warriors.

Face the Warlord Zul’jin

Will time be on your side as you fight your way through Zul’Aman to defeat the devious warlord Zul’jin at the seat of power of the Amani trolls and stop him from exacting his deadly vengeance?

New 10 player raid: Zul’Aman

Defeat the devious warlord Zul’jin at the seat of power of the Amani trolls and stop him from exacting his deadly vengeance.

  • Raid bosses: 6 (Nalorakk, Akil’zon, Jan’alai, Halazzi, Hex Lord Malacrass, Zul’jin.)
  • Level: 70
  • Location: Ghostlands, Eastern Kingdoms

There is no attunement required to enter the instance. Zul’Aman has a 3-day reset lockout.

Timed challenge: Amani War Bear

Zul’jin and his lieutenants are holding several hostages in Zul’Aman. When you enter the instance, the Amani will begin preparations to terminate them. If you defeat one of Zul’jin’s lieutenants and reach a hostage before time runs out, you’ll be rewarded with an additional piece of loot and a timer extension—a brief stay of execution. Rescue all hostages, and your raid will be rewarded with one Amani War Bear epic mount.

Beyond Zul’Aman

Outland World Boss Changes

Doomlord Kazzak and Doomwalker are now more eager to share their spoils. Their loot is now Bind on Equip (from Bind on Pickup).

Badge of Justice Updates

The following bosses can now drop Badges of Justice, giving you more opportunities to obtain this valuable currency:

  • Doomlord Kazzak and Doomwalker
  • All bosses in Karazhan, Gruul’s Lair, and Magtheridon’s Lair
  • All bosses in Serpentshrine Cavern and Tempest Keep
  • All bosses in Zul’Aman

In addition, G’eras in Shattrath now has new, more powerful wares to offer in exchange for Badges of Justice.

Profession Updates

The following Leatherworking items can be trained or have their recipes purchased from Outland faction vendors:

  • Greater Drums
  • Knothide Quiver
  • Knothide Ammo Pouch

Zul’Aman’s army grows more powerful by the day, hungry to exact vengeance in the name of its fearless leader, Zul’jin. Will you bear up to the challenge?
