RetroWoW 1.12.1 Info & Features
RetroWoW is running since January 2015 and is offering the following features:

- 5-Man Raids: Onyxia's Lair, Ahn'Qiraj 20/40, Zul'Gurub, Molten Core, Blackwing Lair and Naxxramas are all fully scripted and scaled for 5-Man raiding. Raids are carefully tuned to make sure that, despite the smaller amount of players required to run them, they still provide an experience similar to the one you use to know. Each mob and every boss is tested and adjusted properly though multiple retail-experienced teams.
Completing attunements is not required and to make sure you are able to progress fast enough, raids will reset every 2 days.
