"It's such a huge game with a lot of little nooks and crannies. Our players have been excellent in WoTLK Gold identifying areas where we need to do further research," Birmingham said. "We are able to dig deep and strive to ensure that we're getting things as accurate as we could. I'm very proud of how close we were to getting this so close."

The WoW's The Burning Crusade expansion was an enormous success. The first expansion to WoW that was released, it introduced many big and forward-looking updates and enhancements to the MMO. As you reflect back on it in the present, 14 years after What do you think about its legacy and impact?
Brian Birmingham: I feel that One of the main things that it did was to expose us to the meaning having an expansion that to us was much like unlocking a new area to explore and exciting routes to explore. And this otherworldly space that is available to explore in Outland is just such an attractive and fascinating place to go through. Some of the early raids, especially Karazhan which is among my favorites and being capable of delivering on this kind of promise, "Hey, there's a novel chapter, a different task to tackle." It was a thing that was quite exciting in this expansion.
John Hight: WoW has been so big that even when you first started exploring it, you could feel the power in WoW at the time that it debuted. What can you do to improve it with an expansion? I'm convinced that the imaginative nature of each of the zones, plus introducing some new races into your character playable, was a thrilling experience. I'm aware that I had some preconceived notions about the game Burning Crusade would be, and they were a lot smaller than what it turned out to be and the thrill of crossing over through the dark Portal...I tried to not know what I was about to experience on the other side. I didn't take part in the beta so it was quite a surprise.
It's time to revisit it. The Burning Crusade Classic through WoW Classic can be truly an experience, watching it complete circle like this. Are there things you see that you notice buy WoTLK Gold, appreciate, or even notice more deeply or with greater clarity now?
