Phase 2 Contents

Lord Kazzak

Kazzak’s fight is hard one and usually, you have to watch out on his Shadow Bolt Volley. He drops level 60 epic end game items as well as a quest item. The item is called Eye of Shadow and Priests will have their hands on it.

Azuregos

Azuregos is a member of the Blue Dragonflight and a lieutenant of the aspect Malygos. He is incredibly interested in magical artifacts and their protection. Because of that, he guards the ancient night elf Ruins of Eldarath in Azshara.

Azuregos has some neat epic level drops. Hunters will be the ones that are most interested in downing this boss. In other words, Azuregos has a guaranteed drop on Ancient Sinew Wrapped Lamina. This item is Hunter’s quiver which provides an extra 15% attack speed.

PvP Honor System

The PvP Honor System has arrived in WoW Classic as part of the phase two update.

This phase of WoW Classic introduces the so-called “Climbing the Ladder” system. Therefore, facing enemies who are within 10 levels of your own character and defeating them will earn you Honorable Kills. In conclusion, these Honorable Kills will help you advance in the PvP system and unlock access to a variety of rewards, such as a PvP trinket, cloak, potions, and more.

However, not all Honorable Kills are valued the same. For example, killing the same enemy multiple times will result in a decreasing amount of Honor gained. In addition to this, diminishing returns also apply to killing faction leaders. Diminishing returns from repeated kills on a single target are these:

The value of the Honorable Kill is weighted by the rank and level of the defeated player. In other words, you will earn more Contribution Points by defeating players who have more PvP experience under their belt. However, defeating a player who is new to the battlefield will result in fewer Contribution Points. Moreover, each week your rank will be updated based on your activity relative to the other members of your faction.

Falling From Grace

You will be given Dishonorable Kills for killing civilian NPCs which immediately impacts your Honor rating. Therefore, every dishonorable kill costs you some of the honor that you’ve earned in previous weeks. In addition, reaching the higher ranks will be difficult if you have dishonorable kills counted for your character. These will appear in the Honor tab immediately.

The status of your character can be checked under profile > Honor tab. This tab shows your character’s current title, rank, honor, honorable and dishonorable kills.

There are 14 ranks, and each rank provides access to new rewards. You’ll need to head over to the Officer’s Barracks in Stormwind or Orgrimmar to purchase your new items.
