Phase 4

Phase 4 will include Zul’Aman (10 men) and allow players with less time to play to catch up. Unfortunately, this phase will not include a new Arena season per. Blizzard’s comments so far.

CATCH UP: Zul’Aman is the only new content that falls into Phase 4 and will act as a catchup instance without adjustments

We estimate that this phase is starting around April 16, and ran to 15th of July.

Phase 5

Phase 5 will include Quel’Danas (zone), Magisters Terrace (5 men), and Sunwell Plateau (25 men).

BIG BAD: The Kil’jaeden are waiting for players in Phase 5 of the TBC Classic

This massive final phase is likely to begin around June 16 and will run until the WoW Classic Wrath of the Lich King is unveiled, then proceed to its huge pre-patch.
