Naxxramas releases in World of Warcraft Classic on December 3, 2020. Players need to wait until the release of Phase 6 to get attuned for Naxxramas, but you can do a few things in advance to prepare. 

Naxxramas is the most challenging, and arguably the most fun, 40-man raid encounter in all of Classic World of Warcraft. At the time of the original release back in Vanilla, only about 1% of guilds managed to defeat Kel’Thuzad and clear it entirely.

  • Arachnid Quarter
    • Anub’Rekhan
    • Grand Widow Faerlina
    • Maexxna

    • Gluth
    • Thaddius
  • Frostwyrm Lair
    • Sapphiron
    • Kel’Thuzad
