When the first WoW expansion, The Burning Crusade, arrives on the WoW Classic servers, a lot will change for Classic fans. At least that's what an anonymous leaker, who according to his own information works for Blizzard, claims. What is true about the leaker's claims, only Blizzard itself knows at the moment. The reddit user DarkPhenomenon has summarized the statements of the leaker - and because the Classic community discusses them eagerly, we did not want to withhold them from you.
