WoW Classic: Phase 5 Guide, Ahn'Qiraj, T2.5

Following recent testing on the PTR, Blizzard recently announced the release date for Phase 5 of WoW Classic. Phase 5 is planned for Wednesday July 29 and will most notably include new raids in the form of The Temple & The Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj (AQ20 & AQ40)

Two moths after the release of Phase 4 of WoW Classic, Blizzard recently announced Phase 5: The Opening of the Gates of Ahn'Qiraji event and AQ20 and AQ40 will be available on US servers from 29 July 2020!

The trailer dates back to the original release of Ahn'Qiraj, given that we're still waiting for something new from Blizzard for this phase. It's sure to bring back fond memories!

Ahn'Qiraji War Effort

The Ahn'Qiraji War Effort is a event that, while active, is available to all players on the server. It will remain available as long as Gates of Ahn'Qiraj still closed, with the event leaving the game when once the gates are opened. This is a major event, with most of it taking place in Silithus. The Ahn'Qiraji War Effort can be split into 3 phases:

  • Obtaining the Sceptre of Shifting Sands, reserved for high level guilds.
  • Collecting War Effort materials, available to all players on the server
  • The Six Hour War shortly after the Gates are opened, once the two other preceding quests are compelted and the Scarab Gong has been rung

Once these three major phases have concluded, the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj will open and both The Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj (AQ20) and The Temple of Ahn'Qiraj (AQ40) will be available to you, with the formidable C'Thun awaiting you in the latter.

Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj

The Ruins of Ahn'Qiraj, often abbreviated to AQ20, is a 20-man raid that is accessible once the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj have been opened. Originally released in Patch 1.9, The Gates of Ahn'Qiraj, AQ20 is the living core of the Silithid Empire. Crawling with all sorts of insectoid creature, this raid culminates in an encounter with the powerful Ossirian the Unscarred and rewards players with more powerful non-set gear than in Blackwing Lair.

Temple of Ahn'Qiraj

The Temple of Ahn'Qiraj is one of the most iconic raids in WoW Classic. Originally released in Patch 1.9: The Gates of Ahn'Qiraj, the temple offers up a doable 40-man raid and provides players with better rewards than in AQ20, as well as a new set: Tier 2.5!
