World of Warcraft Classic Hardcore: One life, one chance
Blizzard is set to introduce a thrilling new experience to World of Warcraft Classic with the addition of hardcore servers. Taking inspiration from the popular community add-on “Death = Delete,” this mode imposes a strict one-life rule on characters. If your hero meets their demise, there will be no resurrection or ghostly return to their body. Even class abilities like the Shaman’s Ancestral Spirit spell or the Warlock’s Soulstone won’t be able to bring your character back to life. Additionally, Paladins won’t be able to rely on their bubble hearth escape strategy.
However, your character won’t simply disappear into oblivion. Instead, they will linger as a ghost, allowing you to maintain contact with guildmates and friends you encountered during your adventures. Should you wish to continue playing your deceased character, Blizzard will provide free transfers to non-hardcore servers.
