What’s Disappearing with Wrath of the Lich King when WoW Cataclysm classic releases

As the WoW Cataclysm Classic release patch rolls out, specific items and accomplishments will become unavailable or more difficult to secure, due to substantial changes to the environment. This impacts the accessibility of some unique mounts and items. 

  • Swift Zulian Tiger. As Zul'Gurub evolves from a raid zone into a leveling area, this mount will become unattainable. 
  • Swift Razzashi Raptor. This mount will no longer be available after Zul'Gurub undergoes its transformation. 
  • Razzashi Hatchling. The Zul'Gurub overhaul entails that this non-combat companion will no longer be acquirable. 
  • Tome of Polymorph: Turtle. Even as Zul'Gurub evolves, this tome will continue to be accessible via alternative methods. 
  • Crusader's White/Black Warhorse and Swift Alliance Steed/Swift Horde Wolf. The elimination of the attempt-limited homage system from Heroic Trial of the Crusader means the Argent Crusade Tribute Chest will cease to appear, making these mounts unobtainable. 
  • Reins of the Blue Drake. The Reins of the Azure Drake will remain exclusive to the 25-player mode. 
  • Mimiron's Head. The drop chance for this mount from 25-player Yogg'Saron with no Keepers reduced. 
  • Invincible. This coveted mount will also have a decreased drop rate from the Heroic 25-player Lich King encounter. 

Changes to Quest and Loremaster 

The cataclysmic comeback of Deathwing will forever reshape Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms. As these lands undergo dramatic transformations, adventurers will find new quests designed for 1-60 lvls in the revamped regions. Consequently, a big amount of quests will be discontinued following the upheaval. Any quests affected by the modifications will be automatically removed from your quest log. Quests that remain pertinent and are included in the updated version of Azeroth will persist in your quest log, enabling you to finish them. 

Significant changes will impact the Loremaster achievements for the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor. If you have already completed the Loremaster of Eastern Kingdoms or Loremaster of Kalimdor achievements, rest assured that your achievements will remain intact. For those who have started but not yet completed these, be aware that the removal of certain quests may affect your progress. Any discontinued quests will no longer contribute to your achievement count, potentially causing your counter to decrease. If you are nearing the completion, you better complete them as soon as possible. 

The imminent reshaping of Azeroth will also bring a redesign to the Loremaster achievements, making them more manageable. Rather than necessitating that players undertake a multitude of quests spanning an entire continent, the revised requirements will emphasize finishing a specified number of quests within each distinct zone. After successfully completing the required quests in all the specified zones of a continent, you will be awarded the Loremaster achievement for that particular continent. Players who have already achieved the Loremaster of Kalimdor or Eastern Kingdoms under the old system will not lose these achievements. Moreover, you will have the opportunity to pursue the new zone-specific achievements within these continents, allowing you to experience and earn recognition for the updated quest content in each area. 

End of “Insane in the Membrane” Feat of Strength 

As WoW Cataclysm Classic release makes its debut, the notable "Insane in the Membrane" Feat of Strength will be discontinued. This means that players will no longer be able to earn this particular achievement once the expansion goes live. If you’ve been aiming to achieve this challenging title, now is the time to complete the necessary requirements before it's retired.
