WOW Classic Ahn’Qiraj War Effort is a preparation part of the raid content, which can now bring new emotions due to the release of an updated version of the vanilla WOW Classic. In War Effort content players from different servers will need to collect a huge amount of resources to prepare for the great battle. Once all the necessary resources have been collected, WOW players can launch a 10-hour war and loot different items.


Collection of necessary resources

Players of both Horde and Alliance will have to complete quests from different NPCs. Quests can be found in the Valley of Spirits in Orgrimmar or in the Military Ward in Ironforge. In addition to differences in tasks, different factions will also have to collect different materials. The tables below show the main types of resources needed to prepare for war.

And finally, the Alliance and the Horde will need to extract materials from a common list.

As you can see in the lists, all the quests will have to be completed more than once, so success in quick preparations for war depends directly on the activity of all players. And if they do not show proper activity, the battle will have to wait long enough.


Collecting Commendation Signet

After completing the quests, you will receive special commendation signets that can be exchanged for Box of Ahn’Qiraj War Effort Supplies. The Alliance has the Alliance Commendation Signet, and the Horde has the Horde Commendation Signet. The quests differ in complexity, but for each completed quest you still get only one token. The reward in the boxes may vary depending on the complexity of the quests, but the number of tokens remains unchanged.

The reward in the boxes is increasing by the cumulative effect. If you open only a few boxes, you will get only bandages as a reward. However, opening a large number of boxes (which will confirm your active participation in WOW Classic Ahn’Qiraj War Effort) will allow you to get epic items. So, completing quests is not only part of the PVE content, but also an excellent source for farm gold, equipment, mounts and gold.

On our Legacy Boost website, you can order an hourly driving time service for your character to pass WOW Classic Ahn’Qiraj War Effort. In this content we will help you with the passage of the same type of quests for collecting resources and, perhaps, we will find nice epic items for the development of your character. It’s better to spend time profitably and have a good evening than endlessly collecting resources and waiting that other WOW players will do the same.


Scepter of the Shifting Sands 

WOW Classic Ahn'Qiraj War Effort Scepter of the Shifting Sands

To access WOW Classic Ahn’Qiraj War Effort, at least one player needs to have Scepter of the Shifting Sands. By the way, having the Scepter will let you gain greater loot after completing the war. To find the Scepter, you will first have to go through the chain of quests. The whole raid story begins from this and there you will be asked to run at different ends of the map. 

During the completion of quests, too much attention will be given to dragons and interaction with them. Some tasks are even related to group content, for example, you will have to pass the Blackwing Lair and kill Broodlord Lashlayer to bring his head to the so-called Baristolth.

The entire storyline begins at level 60 in Cenarion Hold, where you will be sent on a mission to find Brood of Nozdormu. After several conversations with different NPCs, Baristolth will offer you a quest to obtain a neutral reputation with Brood of Nozdormu. Further, this chain continues for some time, but this topic is about another guide. If you need help with gaining the Scepter of the Shifting Sands, then the Legacy Boost team is ready to help you with completing the quests.


The questline
