A war is coming to World of Warcraft Classic and it looks like both the Alliance and Horde need to answer the call to arms. Both sides need to gather essential resources in order to fuel the Ahn’Qiraj war effort.

So what’s is Ahn’Qiraj anyway? This is actually a great desert fortress that had been sealed behind the Scarab wall. It also serves as the home to the insectoid qiraji, a race that are preparing to mount an assault on the continent of Kalimdor. However, lurking behind the walls of Ahn’Qiraj is the Old God C’Thun.

While armies are important, war is also about having the right amount of supplies. This means that the Alliance needs to ensure a steady stream of supplies to the Military Ward in Ironforge and the Horde needs to do the same for the Valley of Spirits in Orgrimmar. This then rewards the Ahn’Qiraj War Effort Supplies, which can contain items like the Alliance Commendation Signets or Horde Commendation Signets.

It’s not all supplies as players may also need to befriend dragons. To do this, players need to be able to start earning reputation with the Brood of Nozdormu by turning in Silithid Carapace Fragments. They then need to turn in the Head of the Broodlord Lashlayer in order to start The Path of Righteous quest.

Players are also going to be able to start a quest series in order to create the Scepter of the Sands. This should allow them to ring the gong in the realm they are on. The first player from each realm that manages to complete the quest and ring the gong becomes the Scarab Lord of the realm. The same player also receives the Black Qiraji Resonating Crystal, which summons a ridable Qirjai tank.

Once the gong has been rung, it’s going to start a 10-hour war that marks the arrival of Anubisath and Qiraji warriors. They can be found in:

  • Lower-level Players
    • Barrens
    • Thousand Needles
  • Higher-level Players
    • Silithus
    • Tanaris
    • Feralas

Being able to defend against these incursions lets players have a chance to earn gold, experience, and even reputation with the Brood of Nozdormu.

Once the 10-hour war is completed, these dungeons open to allow players to access the dangers and treasures within:

  • 20-Player Raid Dungeon
    • Ruins of Ahn’Qiraj
  • 40-Player Raid Dungeon
    • Temple of Ahn’Qiraj

What are you waiting for? Time to gear up and prepare for war.
