World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Classic is currently undergoing beta testing ahead of its impending launch, and players might have noticed a bump in the level cap. Previously it was 64, however it's now been pushed to 68.

The change was announced via a forums post on the Blizzard forums (via WoWHead) which, among other things, brought a bevy of bug fixes to the beta. The Burning Crusade Classic started its beta last week and players have flocked to the next evolution of World of Warcraft Classic, to relive the MMO's first expansion, even if it's in a beta right now.

Among some of the fixes in the patch notes include taking care of issues surroudning AoE damage caps not working properly, as well as fixing the spawn point of Eye of the Citadel, which would sometimes spawn underneath the world when working through the Warlord of the Bleeding Hollow questline.

However, the real relevant bit is the level cap increase, as it signals that we could be seeing The Burning Crusade Classic inch ever closer to a full launch on WoW's classic servers. For those players who don't want to transition to TBCC just yet, when the expansion launches there will be separate Classic servers to help retain that pre-Crusade feel. 

Robin recently has been checking out the World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Classic beta herself and wrote up some of ther initial thoughts, especially the changes going from Classic to TBCC such as talent tree changes and more. In case you missed it as well, be sure to check out our interview with Blizzard from last month's BlizzConline to make sure you are prepared.
