To people looking to play classic

danwest58danwest58 Member RarePosts: 1,927
I put this in the guild section yesterday but no one looked a it so I put this in the wrong area.

I am just asking to see if there are other like minded players out there like me that come classic will be looking for this kind of guild that I am considering running.   I know we are around 8 months before launch with that said I just want to get a feel for what is out there right now.   

I am considering running a guild that focuses on helping new and returning players play in classic because a lot of people forgot that you need to be careful of your pulls, you need to CC and the slower pace of the game.  With this guild if there is enough interest we will do 20 man raiding and if we have enough people 40 man raiding.  With that said it will be a causal schedule 2 days a week max because I want to play with adults like myself that cant dedicate 3+ nights raiding every week.  I also want like minded people that agree that no raiding or end game will be done for the first 6 months because the slower pace of leveling, and we want to play the game like it should be played as a journey not as a treadmill.   I dont want to say its a casual guild because NO I dont want a guild chat which is what a lot of casual guilds are today, I want a guild that has members who will make time a few days a week to do dungeons, some twink PVP, walk all the way to discolace together and all the while having a good time on discord.   

I am looking to do this on an (NA ET) (PVE) server as Alliance.  I am just wondering if there is enough like minded players out there that would fit with 5 to 10 of my friends who are going to be playing classic.

    I'm sure there are plenty of people like this for classic. The people who still play classic servers have been in my opinion, more helpful and decent than all the newer players who just want to grab gear and move on. That just might be because you actually need to act as a community to get things done with how classic is. I mean shit, I never even joined a guild in the past 2 expansions and I cleared all normal, heroic, and a good amount of the mythic content. 

    I'm looking forward to classic coming back, and hope that it can sustain a player base.

    I'll at least try out classic when it launches.  And one of the first things I like to do is try to find a guild of like-minded folks.  As such, when the time nears, I'd be down to join a guild based here at MMORPG.com.

    For years now I've been playing Vanilla I could always play it for free.  But to show support I may subscribe when released.... I LOVE Vanilla that much where I want developers to know this is the way to go !  

    Anyway if I do, I could be in for a mmorpg Guild.  I could offer my humble help on finding groups to do content (yes, I can be humble). 

    Speaking of group's... I wonder if they will enhance the social panel to make it even more effective ?......But any sign of a Cross LFG finder and I'm out !

    I might come and take @Kyleran so he can finally clear Naxx--whenever that releases--the way it was meant to be.

    Do you like: 
    Wailing Caverns, Horde ? 
    The Deadmines, Alliance ? 

    I know how to get to Wailing Caverns being alliance, but not The Deadmines playing Horde. 

    I guess I just need to think about it.....Jzzz…. Cant figure this out. Duskwood, but how do you get to Duskwood being Horde !

    I have while playing WoW done some crazy stuff. I took a Horde Orc hunter to Teldrassil to get an owl. It took hours and hours and many, many deaths. Getting on to the boat alone from Auberdine took 5 deaths I think. It's really a challenge and the character was below level 10, I left as soon as I got the tame pet skill. I also did the same with a Night Elf hunter and getting past the wolves in Ashenvale was harder than the Orc guards at the tower near Durotar to get to Echo Isles for the Durotar Tiger. While playing with my husband I took his Night Elf druid to Wailing Caverns with my Night Elf warrior. We finished the whole dungeon without doing any quests though this was in days of the  Burning Crusade expansion.

    I always wanted to try for those spiders in Azuremyst Isle with my Troll hunter but I never figured out the boat routes properly those days or there wasn't an easy way in I think because I never tried. 

    It's doable you just need to be patient and of course the number of deaths will probably leave you naked so equip only stuff you can afford to lose. It was a fantastic adventure.

    You just need to get to Stranglethorn Vale to get to Deadmines because getting to Westfall is a matter of many ,many death and spawning in the graveyards.

    Nice story :)  

    Stranglethorn Vale, that's what I thought as it's the only way I could think of.  But Stranglethorn Vale is hard to navigate even in the high 30-low 40's. 

    Thanks !

    That's why you have to use the graveyards to travel. You die you move forward. It helps if you can hide like the night elf can.

    One time my friends and I were in our high 30's and we were trying to get our friend around lv. 15 or so through Stranglethorn.  At the top (northern end), their was a Wolf on the road that would ignore us and go right for him and one shot.... We had a hell of a time getting him the flight path to Booty Bay.  

    Ahhh Booty Bay, I love it there

    You don't.  You figure how you are going to clear AQ40 so you can move on to Naxx.

    If it really is a true vanilla / classic experience most everything one does (in PVE) should be in support of 40 person raiding.

    40 person raiding is/was the pinnacle of vanilla WOW, if you aren't doing it, your playing the game wrong.

    I never got into raiding, I like the mid game experience. I live on East Coast USA (EST), everyone seems to Raid late at night. 

    I used to be able to play every night, and all day on weekends when time allows.  Something happened to me and can't do that anymore.  Also the wife gets mad.

    The way things are going, i am not sure Blizzard is going to manage it, i put a lot of hope into Classic and its pretty much the only version i am currently interested in. BfA is dying on the vine, but i am having reservations about whether Blizzard can even do this, if it turns out to be a sharded nightmare of a game, then i might just have to put aside my morals and look to the private servers.  :/
  • cheyanecheyane Member EpicPosts: 5,930
    There are no PvE private servers so that's out for me.

    My secondary was a NE hunter. . I remember getting the white lion?  From  Barrens.  I got killed so many times.  I also went into some dungeon in Horde Land solo to get an armoured Boar.  I think I ended up with all of the unique pets.   The day they made them all the same for "balance" was the day they truly lost me.   There was that stealth cat as well. . super cool and such a great side game for hunters.  I hope they keep those in.

    That white lion was a quest spawn. Eeecheyake or something like that right ?

    They had ZG and AQ20.  Both were very fun raids to do.  
  • danwest58danwest58 Member RarePosts: 1,927
    It seems like there is interest in this type of guild which is cool.  I am glad there is interest.  I will not be pulling anything together until shortly after we get a release date.   If you are interested send me a Direct Message and we will keep in contact.

    I'll join when it launches, I'm probably not going to be plowing through content. Probably just leveling slowly and enjoying it again.
