Is The Burning Crusade a Paid Expansion?

Not at all. The Burning Crusade will be able for free to all World of Warcraft Classic players at launch. However, there are some paid features and privileges that you can optionally get in The Burning Crusade.

Dark Portal Pass

Costing players $39.99, the Dark Portal Pass will allow you to boost one character of your own choice to level 58 in the world of The Burning Crusade Classic. Keeping in mind that this boost will only be usable on one character per account. Also, you cannot boost blood elf or draenei characters. Here’s what the boost delivers to your character:

  • Apprentice Riding skill
  • Race-specific mount
  • Weapon skills up to level 58
  • Access to certain flight paths
  • A set of level 58 magic (green) quality gear
  • Up to four Runecloth Bags (14 slots each)
  • A little bit of gold to start their journey

Deluxe Edition

If you are looking for ultimate privilege over your opponents, you can choose to buy the Deluxe Edition for $69.99, which brings in the Dark Portal Pass along with the features below:

  • The Reawakened Phase-Hunter mount, a creature that draws on the otherworldly energies that transformed Draenor into Outland, for use only in Burning Crusade Classic and designed to match the look of the original expansion
  • The Viridian Phase-Hunter mount, a variant for use in modern World of Warcraft (including Shadowlands) and reflecting the game’s current visual style
  • A Dark Portal Hearthstone for use in Burning Crusade Classic, providing a unique visual effect inspired by the gateway between worlds
  • The Path of Illidan toy for Burning Crusade Classic, which causes your character’s footsteps to leave flickering fel fire in their wake for a short time
  • The Dark Portal Pass, which boosts one character to level 58 (same restrictions as standalone Dark Portal Pass apply; upgrading from the Dark Portal Pass to the Deluxe Edition does not grant a second boost.)
  • 30 days of World of Warcraft game time, providing access to WoW Classic, Burning Crusade Classic, and the modern game

World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade will be available for free for WOW Classic on June 1st on PC.
