World of Warcraft (WoW): Classic has released two world bosses that long-time gamers have been waiting for.

The two world raid bosses are Lord Kazzak and Azuregos, who were both featured in Vanilla WoW.

Both have a storied history in the franchise and have appeared in some form or another in multiple expansions. It’s back to square one for these world raid bosses, as both have been brought back to their original plotline in WoW.

WoW Classic’s “Phase 2” has brought these two world raid bosses into the game, and they are ready to be tested by WoW players.

Lord Kazzak

Location: Blasted Lands, within the Tainted Scar
Suggest Player Level: 60
Number of Players Suggested: 40

Lord Kazzak is a menacing doomlord and commander of Burning Legion forces. After the Third War, Lord Kazzak and his minions retreated to the Blasted Lands, where players will find him patrolling around the Tainted Scar.

If a group takes down Lord Kazzak, the Eye of Shadow is a guaranteed drop. It’s an epic trinket, which is used in the quest The Balance of Light and Shadow. When the quest is completed, the player will be rewarded with either Benediction or Anathema. These two staffs are rated as Best in Slot Priest 2 Handed Weapons for Phase 1 and 2 of WoW Classic. Benediction is for Healing Priests, and Anathema is for Shadow Priests.

The raid boss has been seen in a few different expansions. Lord Kazzak opened the Dark Portal to the Outlands, which ushered in the first expansion of WoW, The Burning Crusade. For the deed, players could battle the promoted Doom Lord Kazzak in Hellfire Pennisula. Players could also fight Supreme Lord Kazzak in Tanaan Jungle during the expansion Warlords of Draenor.


Location: Azshara
Suggested Player Level: 60
Number of Players Suggested: 40

This world raid boss is a mighty blue dragon and a member of the Blue Dragonflight. Malygos has tasked him with the safekeeping of magical artifacts.

He resides in Azshara, near the ancient night elf city Ruins of Eldarath. If Classic gamers want the Blue Dragonflight artifacts that Azuregos protect, they will have to gather a large group of players to try and defeat the intimidating dragon.

Defeating Azuregos will leave prized items up for grabs, and one of those drops is the Ancient Sinew Wrapped Lamina, an epic quiver for Hunters that increases ranged attack speed by 15 percent.

Azuregos has had a roll in multiple expansions, including Cataclysm and Legion.

World Boss battles are always a fun time in WoW and fighting these throwback bosses are reasons why people were so excited for WoW Classic in the first place.
