When WoW Classic's version of the AQ event from jack's blog

Unfortunately, plans for what's to come from Blizzard's MMO are scarce at present. Since there is no BlizzCon next year WoTLK Gold, information about future versions of WoW Classic or even what the game's new expansion will be will have to wait to be announced.

WoW Classic The Player's Quest To be a Scarab Lord highlights What Is It That Makes the Game's AQ Event so Special

World of Warcraft content creator Barny64 set out on a journey during the summer of 2020 to become a Scarab Lord in WoW Classic's renowned Gates of Ahn'Qiraj event. After nearly two years more later, her documentary detailing her journey has been completed and it's quite possibly the most thorough look into what makes the game's AQ event so distinctive.

First, a little context. "The Scarab title Lord as well as an exclusive bug mount is awarded to players who have completed an extremely long quest-chain as part the AQ event in a set time frame. Even getting to that point is a collaboration across the server, because everyone from Horde as well as Alliance players must donate enormous amounts of cash to"the "war effort" to enable the event to start. The first player to finish the quest and sound the Scarab Gong will actually bring the event to a close in a short period of time and be greeted with the launch of two new raids.

It's then a contest for players to complete the quest and then turn into it before the deadlines run out. It's not even getting into the requirement that the quest practically requires a whole guild's worth of people to complete through a myriad of different levels which includes one that requires players to collect 42.000 of one specific item by killing thousands upon many bugs. It's for all the reasons above that few players ever took on the title at the time it first appeared in vanilla WoW back in 2006. and those who did went down in WoW history.

When WoW Classic's version of the AQ event rolled around on the horizon in 2019. players were in a state of readiness. They knew what items to stock up on and what they had to do in the quest chain, and the obstacles they would have to over. Unlike the original version of the event, in which players went in without any prior knowledge and only small number of buy WoTLK Classic Goldplayers could claim the exclusive mount and title, some WoW Classic guilds had a firm intention of having as many players get the title.
