Raiding in Classic, who's in?

edited May 23 in World of Warcraft
I recalled Blizzard saying only 10% of the playerbase ever raided and I am sure those who even got to Naxx much less finished it before BC launched are very few.

So this time around for those intending to play, will you be raiding?

    I did raid a lot in Classic until we got Nef down. Then gradually lost interest and never really got to see much of AQ40 or Naxx.

    That being said, I'm planning on raiding in Classic in order to finally at least see those raids I missed at the start. Of course, playing retri is not gonna help much, but you never know!

    No raids or dungeons at all tbh, one of the things i want to do is have another go at playing a hunter again without doing a single quest, no heirlooms or gear that isn't readily available from the vendors, its going to be epic! ;)

    My gaming hours are weird, not sure if I'll be able to find people to raid in those hours.

    I was a hardcore raider back in the day and would love to try the 40 man raids again. Working through BWL was some of the best fun I've had in online gaming.

    GL findng a spot as ret....if nowadays is hard back then it was impossible , the only melee spots were for rogues/warrior/ shaman (just 1 to give windfury) , and thats it.

    melees were good because they didnt used mana , (remember using wand on Seal of wisdom to restore mana?)

    No feral , no retri , no DK/Monk/DH of course lol

    I'll definitely be raiding. Like 2/3 evening a week max with a casual guild that allows replacements. Already found one in beta.

    Raiding is actually a much easier way to get a good PVP gear, so I kind of have to whether I want to or not.

    Getting PVP gear through PVP in Vanilla takes an insane amount of time.

    It would be fun to play with people from here, under our MMORPG screenames although i would have to stop changing mine :(


      But to you answer your question @Kyleran I intend to play the classic reboot exactly as i played  original classic . I will take my time and play for a couple hours at night. When i hit max lvl is when i hit max level and when i do i will join a casual raiding guild thats pinnacle of progression will probably be the third or fourth boss of ZG and i will love every minute of it.

       I'll probably stop to admire & gawk at the no lifers who have full tier 2 MC gear and shoot the shit with them via whispers to talk about builds the same way i did in classic.

    I didn’t raid that much in Vanilla. But we did manage to down Ragnaros, Onyxia and Hakkar in one of the guilds I was in.

    Raiding will be my main focus in Classic.

    I think he means T1.

    As for raiding.. eh maybe, sharing 2 pieces of gear among 40 people was a pain and disheartening.

    I have never raided in any MMO I would love to do it but will probably wait for Pantheon:ROTF to come out before I do. I am just too busy working from home, spending time with family, and playing other games at the moment. I only get 2 hours to play a MMO a night. Sometimes 3 and I heard raids can last all night.

    Old school MC raids could take quite a while, especially when everyone was still gearing up.  Just a ton of trash mobs to fight thru at every step of the way.

    Some guilds out there will have a casual raid schedule like mine.  We will be raiding 2 days a week 2.5 hours at most per raid day.   We can do this because we will expect the people who raid to either show up prepared to raid or we will replace them.  We do not have time for players to spend an hour getting ready to raid.  All of us have families and real lives that we cant push the raid scene like we use to.

    Nope, because I won't be playing Classic Wow. Not because I don't find the idea intriguing, its just I can't bring myself to give the assholes any more of my money.

    Didn't exactly pwn Naxx, but made it that far. Still remember vanilla raiding vividly and the things that go with it. So no, not even if you pay me to do it.

    Yep, I never made it to Naxx, falling short at the Twin Emps. 

    As a healer it was a demanding experience which beat out of me any desire to raid ever again, at least not on a 5 or 6 night a week basis. 

    Ultimately I really don't enjoy scripted "Dance with the Stars" game play any more.

    Raiding is hell. I was a raid main healer. I don't want to do that any more. I will do dungeons but no raids for me.

    Not willing to be nasty, but if you needed 5 or 6 nights a week to beat Twim Emps... then maybe it was just the guild which was wrong.
