World of Warcraft: Dragonflight’s latest update has made it so players can once again journey to the original version of the Naxxramas raid and Scholomance dungeon, allowing players to earn items that have been missing in Blizzard’s MMO for over a decade. However, players will have to work for the privilege, as the process for unlocking these classic instances is far from straightforward.
Scholomance back in 2004 was one of WoW’s original endgame dungeons. However, a revamped version introduced in 2012’s Mists of Pandaria expansion replaced the original, making all of the old items obtained within inaccessible. Naxxramas, on the other hand, was the final raid in original WoW, and so challenging that few players even stepped foot inside, let alone defeated the raid’s final boss, the lich Kel’Thuzad. That led Blizzard to bring Naxxramas back for the game’s Wrath of the Lich King expansion in 2008, albeit with different items.
All of the loot obtained within the classic instances, which players might desire for transmog purposes, is finally obtainable once again. However, the process for unlocking the old versions of the dungeon and raid are far from simple. Wowhead has a full rundown of the process, but for starters, players will have to use a specific toy in a specific location in the new version of Scholomance: a toy that is only dropped from a rare spawn inside. After using the toy, players will encounter the ghost of an unfortunate soul slain within the necromancy school. She tasks adventurers with tracking down her journal and performing a ritual, one that will unlock the dungeon for all characters on a player’s account.
