For those looking for something to do in World of Warcraft Classic, good news! Later today the Arathi Basin will open up to Classic players. 

The Arathi Basin battleground will unlock at 3pm PDT (6PM EDT) for players in Classic, giving those level 20 or above from both factions the ability to dive into the action. 

At 3:00 p.m. PDT (6:00 p.m. EDT) on Wednesday, March 11, we will unlock the Arathi Basin Battleground in WoW Classic. Players who are level 20 or above will be able to queue after this time.

  • The League of Arathor faction for the Alliance is in the town of Refuge Pointe in the Arathi Highlands zone. The quartermaster here is Samuel Hawke and he’ll be in the town near the entrance to the Battleground.
  • The Defilers faction for the Horde is in the town of Hammerfall in the Arathi Highlands zone. The quartermaster here is Rutherford Twing and he is just north of the town near the entrance to the Battleground.

Later this week as well the Battleground Holidays will kick off, giving players the chance to earn more honor and reputation while fighting in a Battleground. More details are yet to come on this event, but definitely keep a look out if you're still diving headlong into World of Warcraft Classic.
