      Well, I totally do agree with the UI part and some of the other optimizations, but WoW really hasnt gone better overall. Like some good classic food your parents made to casual fast McMeal with no particular flavour. Eg "Timmy plays few days, Timmy gets same gear as Johnny and James who have been working for it last couple of months" or that you can do sooooo many things solo. Too many, in fact. Group mates come, they go, meh yolo. Just press a few buttons. 2-3 max. Every class can do everything, meh, yolo. Its not fun. Just my opinion and I problably have no life and my mother was a hamster and I'm a noob and so on :)

          streamers are literally cancer, and the people that follow them are even worse!

              Sorry Jesse, ffxiv has beaten wow. Wow is number 2 now. Once the classic numbers die down you'll see.

                I find I like it so much better though. Going back to potions is a lot more fun.

                        I wasn’t very good at video games when this was released and never reached endgame. It’s like getting a second chance to experience everything that was replaced before I could attain itZ

                          Never played any WOW

                          As a Warframe fan, does WOW have anything for me?

                            Heya there, Rus, and you too, Yuval. This is going to be a long response, but if you'll entertain that: I don't know anything about Warframe really, but as someone who's loving Classic WoW right now, I would say that the biggest draw is simply summed up like this: The game is difficult from the early on in a player's starting zone of choice all the way until the final possible confrontation with Kel'thuzad, the Arch-Lich that commands the most difficult instance in all of Classic WoW. The mobs in this game hit like a freight train at times (especially if what you're fighting is even one level over you in your journey to level 60), and when they don't smack like Muhammad Ali then you're likely fighting weaker enemies like murlocs, these little fish-men that travel in packs and can swarm you from behind at a moment's notice like goblins. The cockroaches of the sea, I call them. You will die a lot, and in WoW when you die your soul releases from your body to find itself at a graveyard, whereupon the player must perform a slow walk of shame back to their corpse if they want to resurrect themselves and resume their quest. All the while they will be left with nothing but their own thoughts on how and why they died (hint: it's almost always the player's own fault if they die, even if they don't want to admit it, at least in PvE scenarios. If it isn't their fault then it's something like a raid mechanic that just one-shots one unfortunate person of fourty, and said individual(s) often receive a mid-combat resurrection to rejoin the fight and make up for them taking the hit on behalf of the raid group.) In any case, I mention this because while you will be spending much of your time while leveling up solo, you will often find certain tasks that prove rather challenging, if not impossible to accomplish without aid from fellow players. And so, you do the natural thing and follow the area''s road back to town and look for help, asking if anyone wants to join up and work on the same quest, dungeon, or what have you. There are other ways of finding party members, such as zone-wide chat channels, but my point is, the game challenges the player to the point that they will NEED to seek out allies to overcome certain obstacles, and other times, it's just convenient, fun, a friendly thing to do, or some combination of all of the above. You work together to overcome adversity against hyper-powerful enemies designed to be taken on by fourty individuals at once. You band together and work towards common goals. You forge friendships and make memories together seemingly every other hour, or at least I do as someone who's playing an Arms Warrior that always carries a spare shield and one-handed weapon so that I can tank a few hits for my allies if I happen to make any while journeying through a zone and assisting its inhabitants, fishing up food and crafting cloth bandages to mend my wounds, ogling landmarks, taking in the scenery, and overall just enjoying myself. I try to help everyone I can along the way and often hand out free items that look good for classes that would like them as friendly gestures while interacting with others, and if someone seems to be in danger I always try to assist them and distract the enemies while the survivor runs for the hills. That sort of thing goes a long way in this game, and I could not be happier to say that it does. Beyond this, modern games often hold the player's hands too much, showing them exactly where to go on the map and precisely what to kill instead of making them think and investigate in a more organic way. Don't say "go to this point on the map exactly and kill some bears," tell me "we need a sample from the bears to learn what has driven them rabid. Me must investigate. Head out of town and follow the road east, then follow it south until you find the den mother. Though it pains me to ask this of you, I must ask that you put her down and bring me her head, so that I might search it for the source of this corruption." Classic also doesn't have micro-transactions (including no paid skips to any level at all), no flying so you have to deal with the terrain whether you like it or not (which makes the world feel much more real to you, more tangible, and it feels as large as it is instead of simply gliding over the entire thing at 310% speed on a flying mount like you can in Classic, which makes the world feel much smaller as a result.) No loot boxes, no paid DLC shit, no weird corporate shenanigans, just a good old game from 2005 that's been flung into the future of like Samurai Jack.

                                    I miss the good ol' days. These days, everyone's so exclusive on ESO, and MOBAs are taking storm. It's not too bad, as I have made some buddies on League, for instance, but... yeah, I miss those exploratory, friendship-buildin' kinda games.

                                      You get chain heal by the end I think. it just wasn't very good in Vanilla, which is why they made it so OP for TBC. Anyway, of course you were going to like it. WoW since wrath has been a solo game, WoW on launch was a multiplayer game. Playing with the same people over time was why people liked these sorts of games to begin with, and it's just gone from retail.

                                        I started playing wow when it already was the burning crusade. And quit when it turned into the lich king. Then played again when pandaria came out and havent played since then. Im 25 yrs old now and just dont have the time to invest in wow. I also used to play with irl friends that dont play anymore wich makes it less attractive to go back.

                                                    Yeah, no. My thoughts about classic stays the same. It's for people with enough time to play more than an hour a day. I'm far too busy for that and prefer more casual gameplay.

                                                        Is there still a max of debuffs so some classes cant use their spells/poisons on raidbosses and stuff or is that also a thing they have modernized? It was something like that. Shut up, i'm old.

                                                                                Vanilla is wow when it was first released. Classic is blizzards name for it because vanilla is a pretty unofficial term. But make no mistake, classic, legacy server, vanilla, all means the same thing

                                                                            • TrumpFor UKPM

And I revive my personal vanilla experience already playing on feenix and elysium private servers. Awesome times. I think I won’t pay these assholes another 11€ for playing a 15 year old game.

                                                                                    • Forsh Eisenfaust

                                                                                      Classic will save WoW from suffering Everquest's death. The original codebase doesn't exist so the best there is are private servers like P99. I will be resubbing to WoW at the end of this month because of Classic being released.

                                                                                      • Awareness Network

How do I find it I thought Blizzard said they deleted the old servers and patches! I'm about to start playing again but I'd really really love to play the classic again. At least have the option to!

                                                                                        • Ixis Divine Cattle
                                                                                          Ixis Divine Cattle  4 months back

                                                                                          I started playing vanilla wow on a private server about 1,5 years ago - quit six months ago about half way through Naxx as our guild was struggling with people using the guild as a stepping stone to the faster clearing guilds. Regardless.
                                                                                          The leveling process was something i dreaded when i started because i remembered it as long and cumbersome. To some extend it also is. But in away it is an increadible relief from some of the instant satisfaction, no sense of achievement that prevails in retail. It often feels like the leveling process in retail is there just because it used to be (with character boosts it seems developers agree).
                                                                                          But leveling in classic gives you something else. You remember how big the world is as you travel around questing, you feel like an adventurer again. You realize a sense of danger in the game as most classes are unable to handle more than two mobs at a time - and some areas have quick spawn rates, closely placed agressive mobs and so on. So you feel like there is some hardship to avoid in the leveling process. Further even non-elite quests can be insurmountable alone, and because of the long leveling progress and being bound to a single realm you will frequently find people in the area to take on these quests with. After having done the quest you might part ways, but meet up a bit later to do another quest your both on or even a couple of levels later. Eventually just the leveling progress becomes a part of the social interactions, and builds up your friendlist.
                                                                                          You start sticking around areas where you just completed a particularly nasty quest, because someone else came along and you know how tough it was - and people will stick around to help you in such situations as well.

                                                                                          The leveling progress is long as hell - took me 9 day of played to get to level 60 (Because of crafting as well) on a non pvp sever - and 10 days on the early stages of a pvp server because there was a lot of world pvp. I wager it can be done a lot faster if you skip professions - but for an average person that is prolly like 7 days played. But i actually didn't mind - because i seriously enjoyed the slow paced adventure sense.
                                                                                          And trust me - i did not enjoy leveling back in the day - and i dreaded doing it. I will be enjoying the entire process again when Classic launches - and i can't wait.
