Happy Closed Cataclysm Classic Beta day! World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Classic is now in closed beta, and it’s still possible to sign up. However, it’s better to do it sooner rather than later.

During theBlizzCon 2023 event, Holly Longdale, the Executive Producer ofWorld of Warcraft, graced the stage with an exciting announcement. This year, Classic progression realms are set to progress from Wrath Classic to Cataclysm Classic, with some player-driven adjustments and enhancements.

Also Cataclysm Classic aims to rectify certain problems from the original release, including faster levelling from 1-80, a more rapid patch release schedule, account-wide appearances, and more.

Now that the beta is live, Blizzard has shared a list of things available for testing, as well as a list of known issues. Currently, testing is focused on leveling from 1 to 80 among other things.
