December 11th by Blizzard Entertainment

The time has come to put your PvP skills to the test. The Warsong Gulch and Alterac Valley battlegrounds are now available in WoW Classic.

Warsong Gulch

Test your teamwork in this 10 vs. 10 capture the flag battleground. The first team to capture three of the opposing team’s flags wins the match and earns Honor toward their PvP ranking.

To join the battleground, you’ll need to be at least level 10 and visit the battlemaster in one of the capital cities to queue or, if you’re feeling adventurous, travel to the battleground in the Northern Barrens (for Horde) or Ashenvale (for the Alliance.)

You’ll be matched up with other players within a specific level bracket as follows:

Alterac Valley

Step into Alterac Valley and prepare to engage in a battle for every square meter across this battleground. You’ll need to coordinate with your team in a 40 vs. 40 grudge match to see who will come out on top.

To queue for this battleground, you’ll need to be at least level 51 at the battlemasters within the capital cities or head out into Alterac Mountains to queue up there.

You and your team will need to coordinate to meet both PvE and PvP objectives to win. You’ll control key locations such as mines, towers, and graveyards, which will help you push further into the map toward the main objective—the opposite faction’s general Vanndar Stormpike for Alliance and Drek’Thar for the Horde. You can make this task easier for you and your team by destroying enemy towers and killing the elites guarding the generals.

You’ll also be able to turn in resources that can be looted from mobs and players that can be turned in to gain additional bonuses and aid to your side’s cause of crushing the enemy.

Earning reputation within this battleground for the Stormpike Guard of the Alliance or Frostwolf Clan for the Horde will open up access to new rewards. You can also gain additional reputation by undertaking a  variety of quests within the battleground.
