World of Warcraft Classic is bringing back another old-school event next month. The Gates of Ahn’Qiraj will unlock on July 28 when the weekly raid reset occurs, opening a new quest chain.
The date comes from a community mangaer on the Blizzard forums. The note said that version 1.13.5 will go live in July, which will unlock a quest to craft the Scepter of Shifting Sands. Players will also be able to contribute resources to the Ahn’Qiraj war, and once both activities have been completed on a realm, it will open the gates.
The original event took place in 2006, and opened raids in the Ruins of Ahn’Qiraj and the Temple of Ahn’Qiraj. It also consisted of elite quest chains and a lengthy war sequence. The gates were permanently opened in a subsequent update in 2009, but then the quests were closed in the Cataclysm expansion.
