A new forum post from Blizzard has revealed the unlock date for Arathi Basin in WoW Classic.

The post from Community Manager Bornakk reveals that the Arathi Basin Battleground will be unlocked in WoW Classic on March 11 at 3p PDT.

“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 that same week, the Battleground Holidays will be kicking off. These will allow players to earn additional Honor and Reputation while playing a specific Battleground. We’ll post the initial schedule for these next week.”
