Ulduar is one of the most iconic raids in World of Warcraft, and it’s finally arrived in WoW Classic.

In this guide, we will cover everything you need to know to successfully conquer this raid. It includes raid makeup, boss strategies, and tips and tricks to help you and your group achieve victory.

WoW Classic Ulduar Raid

As players gear up for the Ulduar raid in WoW Classic, they will need to bring their best equipment and strategies to tackle the formidable bosses within. Among the bosses they will face are XT-002, Yogg-Saron, and Algalon the Observer. While some of the encounters may have undergone changes since the original release, many of them will be similar to their original, un-nerfed forms. 

This means that even experienced players may find it difficult to defeat some of the bosses on their optional hard modes. The Ulduar raid is considered one of the most challenging raids in WoW Classic and requires a high level of coordination and skill from the players. It will be a true test for any raid team and will require them to bring their A-game.


On January 16th, Emblems were introduced for players in WoW Classic. These emblems include Emblems of Conquest, Valor, and Heroism. To obtain the first two emblems, players must defeat Heroic dungeon bosses. Furthermore, they will have to kill bosses in Ulduar. Moreover, they will need to complete the “Proof of Demise” and “Timear Foresees” daily quests. To collect Emblems of Heroism, players must now exchange Emblems of Conquest and Valor at money changers in Dalaran. 

As always, players can still trade in Emblems at Dalaran vendors (one in Sunreaver’s Sanctuary for the Horde and another in The Silver Enclave for the Alliance) for a variety of items, including Raid Sets. These emblems can be used to purchase powerful gear, weapons, and other items that will help players to be better prepared for the challenges ahead.

Non-Ulduar events

The WoW Classic Ulduar Raid patch also introduced new events beyond the raid itself. On January 16th, players who ventured to the northeastern region of Icecrown may have noticed the Argent Tournament Grounds. These are currently under construction and will soon host the Argent Tournament. On January 17th, players were able to participate in the sixth Arena Season. 

If you did not take part then dont worry. You will still have the opportunity to earn the prestigious “Furious Gladiator” title and the Furious Gladiator’s Frost Wyrm mount. You can get it by being among the top PvP champions. These new events provide players with additional activities and challenges. These will keep them engaged and allow them to showcase their skills and earn unique rewards.

Emalon the Storm Watcher

On January 23rd, Emalon the Storm Watcher will be added to the eastern wing of the Vault of Archavon. Players who are able to defeat Emalon will have the opportunity to earn valuable loot.

This is a great opportunity for players to acquire powerful gear. Players will also improve their chances of success in the WoW Classic Ulduar Raid and other challenging content. It also provides an additional challenge for players to take on and test their skills.
