WoW SoD phase 3 countdown: Exact start time and release date

Initiate the third phase.

World of Warcraft Classic Season of Discovery was an instant hint, and it’s almost time for phase three.

Recommended Videos

Blizzard has become the master of rolling out content gradually over the years, and its strategy also applies to the seasonal servers since players wonder when exactly WoW SoD phase three will be released. Whenever a new phase or season becomes available in WoW Classic, the realm server list starts buzzing again. Returning and new players flood through the gates for new content, which gives me a nostalgic feeling. In addition to the next content, I count down the days for phase and patch releases—and another one is just around the corner.

In WoW Classic SoD phase three, the level cap will be increased to 50, so there will be a new set of challenges waiting for you. The update also introduces the Sunken Temple (Temple of Atal’Hakkar) as a full-fledged 20-player raid. This monumental shift from the 10-player format of Blackfathom Deeps and Gnomeregan hints at even grander raids looming on the horizon as we approach the coveted level 60 endgame.
