Coming out on September 1st Update 2.5.2 for WoW: Burning Crusade Classic. Also included: guild banks, the group search and the update on arena placements, with which team ranks are visible and information on reward thresholds for certain arena NPCs is available.

We had that Dungeon browser already viewed on the public test server and cannot optically detect any modernization. On the official WoW website the Blizzard developers have now presented the “new” group search of TBC Classic in detail.

With Lords of Outland, the user interface of the classic group search gets a few background improvements. While everything stays the same for looks and feel, these changes should make the feature even better than you remembered, including more available activities, group entries, and more. Jump back into the fray and find companions for your adventures.


As with the original release of The Burning Crusade the dungeon browser (standard key I) can be called up via a new symbol next to the sociability button in the action bar. This will open a window in which you can decide whether you want to create a group or join one that is still looking for members. Depending on your choice, the window “Search for group” or “Search for members” will appear. You can easily switch between the two user interfaces using the tabs at the bottom.


Unlike the original tool, which could only be used by individual players, both individual players and entire groups can register for up to three activities in the group search tab. These activities include dungeons, raids, zones (for quests as a group), heroic dungeons, battlefields, and arenas.

As soon as you have decided which of these activities you would like to register for, you can enter a comment (for example to inform other players which roles / specializations you can take on) and click on the “Register yourself” button to sign up for register the group search. Only players on your realm and from your faction can see your entry. The activities of an entry can be changed after creation by changing them and then clicking on the “Update” button. Last but not least, you can also sign up for activities while queuing for a battlefield or arena.


The Search for Members tab allows individual players or small groups to search for additional players to complete a group. Select your desired activity from the drop-down menus (for example, choose Raid and Karazhan if your Karazhan group needs a few more people) to see players who have signed up for that activity. There you can also see the current zone, level and information about group members.

The group leader can click on a player name from here to send a group invitation or message. With “actual.” you can display new entries.
