Starting Again In Late Classic WoW - My Thoughts & Experiences

    I wanted Classic+ from the very start, because I knew Classic would be fcked up. I predicted this atleast ~3 years before they announced Classic: I knew warriors were overpowered late game. I knew there were going to be hordes of bots. I knew mages were going to AoE farm dungeons and complete destroy much much more than just the market. I knew there would be a min-max mentality, where everyone knows everything due to SEblacks and addons. All they needed to do was to remove the slow effect from Blizzard on elite mobs. BOOM.

    1 massive tip though. You guys should learn to whisper other players more for dungeons instead of only asking in chat. :d

    I have to say that as a TBC player who played classic to see how Vanilla was at least remotely like, the ruining of the immersion started pretty quickly already. Sure the nostalgia of coming back to wow in general after quiting in early cata kept me going strong and in the end I quit classic vanilla because I just didn't have the time available to sometime spend 3 or 4 hours just on setting up your bank, doing your proffessions, having your bank char clean enough. Only to then still spend a lot of time getting a group together have actually a decent amount of douchebags that would ragequit because 1 or 2 players were actually new to the game and a dungeon like Maraudon is quite daunting for the first time. (and early vanilla the groups came pretty quickly but even as a healer and a tank it could still take time to get people to come to the dungeon and get it started) But the fact that there was this whole ghosting into a reset dungeon and actually ressing at a boss to farm dungeon gear (or however they did it) just actually destroyed the game. Especially because Blizzard couldnt reroll anymore because that too would've upset people. Also the phases were done badly. No meaningful honor system for the first phase of pvp actually just didn't make sense to anyone that didn't actually play Vanilla wow during the patches where pvp didnt give honor. Sure pvp for the sake of it isn't a bad thing but when youre already on a tight schedule, doing pvp for no honor feels about the most pointless thing in the world. And joining a full PvP server, to then not having World PvP for the first month or 2 in Vanilla Classic is just completely pointless. How they handled the servers as well is a major point of contention. Waiting 10 hours to log in on the first day on the server I specifically reserved my name on 2 weeks prior and having to wait another day before actually getting a server that we could comfortably play on was also just another bad start of the journey. Especially because on that 2nd server the names we wanted to reserve were already taken. :) So yes I actually quit like 1 month into classic. Which sort of surprised me because I had expected to take time even in the worst case. As always, real life did have it's neccesary impact. :) And ironically I lost my job just before corona so I shouldve had plenty of time but I did not consider going back. Although that was quite a concious decission. Going to play wow 24/7 after losing my job to name just 1 thing was not going to be a great thing for my mindset while in my late 20s. :d Of course, it was always going to be a mess. That is why we didn't get Vanilla servers in the first place. They only did it because it made them a lot of money and still does. But things like not having enough servers ready only to then have several servers introduced within hours feels like levels of incompetence that wouldn't even be tolerated at a small company. So how they did not forsee this? :)) It cost them a good deal of long stay subscriptions I am sure.

    The reason wow is a dead game nowdays is the exact same that people prefere the easy and fast way for everything ... idk i have leveled over 150 chars in 1x and it is still the most fun thing to do and people prefere playing private servers getting max level etc ..

    I agree on a lot of your points. I've reported bots in retail and they will get banned but they will also get to run 24/7 for months before the ban wave happens. In that time they've already made enough to cover the cost of new bot accounts. The dungeon boosting is annoying for sure. One could either join a guild that does boost runs for their alts and you or try to start your own groups for the dungeons as you level. I admit that you may not be able to find a legit group for all dungeons while leveling. That being said I think now is actually the best time other than at launch to play wow:classic. The hardcore and most of the bots will be moving to TBC, leaving behind those who truly want to be there. It's not perfect but it was never going to be.

    It takes way too long to level which is why I won’t play TBC. I can’t start at level 1 and spend 6 months to get to 70. And I refuse to pay to boost a character. Oh well. I’ll have to find satisfaction in watching videos like this.

    I suppose if you arrive at a "sweet spot" time you can enjoy something of the old wow. The two times I came in, either everybody was there or, like now, nobody is there. Everyone now is either 60 in outland, or 60 boosted, wow starter continents are dead. Pity the new player!

    Its unfortunate man. I have a lvl 60 and 30. I really wanted to make a blood elf for the new xpac but this game is impossible unless you have a 60. Boosts , meta, and cheaters. Its literally impossible to get to 60 normally. What a good game that could be so much better. You should play but just know your gonna have to solo 1-60 so be prepared to spend 1 month and at least 300 hours to get it.

    Classic WoW ultimately for me isn't worth the work. I'd really enjoy an EZ server with 100% XP boost and 2x item drop rate and 2 x spots in each honor rank. Tryharding with worldbuffs and max consumables also becomes pointless when everyone else does it. Heck, why did people need maxbuffs for MC anyway? Sure it may take 1-2 hours longer but farming consumes took much longer than that. In the unlikely event I'd ever play Classic again I'd make my own guild this time. Each player gets to reserve items and whomever did gets to roll for them. No DKP, no loot council, no drama. No maxconsumes, just chill and fun. Raid with PvP specs.

    Great review! As someone who didn't get into WoW until Cataclysm and more or less missed the "glory days", I found your verdict to be a bit of a bummer but a huge relief at the same time. I haven't played Classic yet, not any WoW in probably 2 years. I kinda wish I played back in the day just to be part of the community of ppl who look back on it so fondly. I do have nostalgia for the time I spent in jumping in and out of Cat and Legion, but I know it's not as strong as for those were in from launch thru Wrath. Expecting to rekindle or experience that through Classic is probably asking too much. Like you said, the meta has changed too much. Blizzard has changed. Times have changed. Oh well. It's a relief though because if I'm being honest, the time I would spend grinding in Classic is much better spent on other things. I might still jump in here and there for a quick play session for what its worth, but I won't be trying to max out my experience. Maybe, just maybe, the league mmo will be a similar great experience as was vanilla WoW. Here's hoping. 🙏

    i fucking hate world buffs, and totally hate how much it ruined the immersion of this game. its also a compete min max game at this point, very little exploration and goofing off. and yes i agree with future expacks feeling like a level race, pushing through too linear and destroying the immersion.

    What killed it for me was how they decided to release classic wow right before college started back in August. Like yeah those 2 weeks were pretty damn great but once school started I had no time to play classic, which leads to my friends to stop playing. Best case scenario in the far future is everyone who boosts gets tired of playing, leaving a the few people tho occasionally come back and play legitimately, but I'd doubt it.

    #NoChanges was ironically the biggest change Blizzard ever made to the game. When it became clear that the world buff meta, boosting, and other problems would plague the game (around a month after its original launch) Blizzard should have gone in and addressed those issues. It sounds like they plan to be a little more proactive with TBC Classic, but I'm not holding my breath that that game won't have its fun min/maxed out of existence.

    Lvling from 0 is actually much better in TBC than in vanilla. It's still slow, just not as painfully slow (due to this is also no biggi to go without boosting) No world buffs Classes are much better TBC is when vanilla lvling zones are at their peak.
