    Even though i only tried Vanilla/TBC WoW on private servers. Enchancement Shamam was my thing before, and still is on current WoW. It plays better today being less dependant on auto attacks, but i miss the massive damage it dealt back when it triggered maelstrom weapon and a vortex covered the shaman to show the effect. It was very satisfying.

    Never liked mage, but never played them long...hmm... Frost mage.

    Your the second person that talked about engineering, whats really good about it ?
    Frost mage is awesome for pvp with all the chill affects. Male gnome lol will drive the opposition absolutely nutz and cause them to over extend, it's better than a pve taunt. Frost mage is only toon I ever got the Iron Man achievement: 20 kills with no deaths.

    Engineer for all the trinkets and early helms, plus it feeds my gatherer fishing lures. :)

    Demon hunter is pretty fun. DH havoc is so OP, you get a TON of self healing and pretty much immortal for most content. Mobility is by far the best, a very fast paced class and you can glide everywhere

    Oh. In that case if OP only wants the classic classes and doesn't care about DH/DK

    The classic classes that are probably doing good is Warlock (demo/destro are doing great), Paladin (not holy though) are both good. Warrior prot is most DPS for a tank, and Fury warrior has a TON of self healing and can solo most content better than any other class

    Personally I'm a fan of mage currently, got one to level 92 so far and its nice having a bunch of utilities like portals and what not. And its pretty fun, though pretty hard class without groping

    Druid is always a good choice and blizzard's favorite. Same with hunter. Druid resto is probably my favorite heal spec.

    Just depends what you want. If want to PvP, rouge is always a good choice for ganking and stealth. Rouge has been the #1 pvp class since the game was released.

     For soloing, I'd go fury warrior tbh but for a longterm safer soloing class (since fury warrior may change next expansion) warlock, hunter and paladin are safe choices.

    For group pvp, I'd go druid tbh, they are amazing for groups. Priest isn't too bad either and shadow is doing great DPS in groups, the #1 dps I think currently

    I'd avoid shamans, and I'd probably avoid monk too (if you care about lore, otherwise they are decent). Monks are forgotten and have no lore since MoP. There isnt even any monk npcs in the game, the literal forgotten class. But they are actually decent and mistweaver is AMAZING in groups and soloing. Shamans blizzard hates and even ion said their mechanic is to die. Never play a shaman unless you hate yourself

    Games change quite a bit over time sometimes, imagine you were an Eve Online player who had only experienced the last 2 years of the game, and you were suddenly dropped into Eve Online year 1, no safeties! can flipping and all sorts of shenanigans that todays Eve largely protects players from, it would be much the same for any WoW player who had maybe only experienced the last few years of WoW, the difference between that and Classic WoW are pretty extreme so unless you had been there since year 1 etc. which not many these days probably have, your experience is a little unique so you are in the enviable position of having a lot of knowledge that newer players do not. Once Classic WoW has released i dare say a lot of players interested in the game are going to be looking for as much advice etc. as they can.  ;)
    Those advices though are quite bad ones. At level 6, you have other things to worry about than to go out seeking flight path and other capital cities, unless of course, you enjoy that or you want to join some friends who started with another race.
    All you will get anyway is a repair bill... remember that run through Wetlands for any Night Elf wanting to join friends on Eastern Kingdoms ?
    Oh yeah, I recall damn spiders chasing me....

    In that case, paladin is probably best classic WoW class or hunter. Paladin and hunter are the two classes you can actually do stuff on your own in classic WoW. No one likes hunters in classic WoW though, you'll get blamed for EVERYTHING

    I remember helping a party of level 2 NEs make their way thru there.  Boy talk about monster bait. It was like the cookie on the chuck wagon ringing the triangle yelling "Come and get it!". Mobs from "miles" around would be eying up these NEs. They laugh alot for each time they died.

    @Jean-Luc_Picard many many better things to be doing around that level. But I mean, look who he is arguing with. Kinda makes all the real points fall on one side.

    I just did the run between Loch Modan and Menethil Harbor with my level 7 Warlock just now. 

    I can't believe so many are trying to make a big deal about it.... I gained almost a level of exp too that you wouldn't get much at higher levels. Hurbed, skinned and got a few flight paths along the way.  As I was going through Dun Algaz (tunnel network) their is an unavoidable high level Orc on the path.  I simply attacked him with my Imp instead of me to take the agro and ran right by him, didn't even kill my imp, EASY !.... The Alligator is easily avoidable as long as you know where his is. 

    Nothing worst than being available for a group event and not having the flight paths. I always get as many as I can early :)

    Skip.

    Just thinking about playing WoW again, the first question that comes to my mind is - why would I want to?

    Cant find any compelling reason as it wont be the same experience

    The game has changed 
    Players have changed
    And most importantly - I have changed

    Dont need a redo for WoW - as I know how the story ends already.

    Some things are best left as memories 

    Just my 2c

    Yeah in Vanilla classic there was no DH, none that was playable. Paladin was Alliance only, Shaman was Horde only. There were no DK either, Dk came in WotLK and Dh with Legion, and no monks as they came with the Panda expansion, or worst expansion imo.

    Furthermore, There were no Pandas, Worgen, Draenei, Blood Elves, Goblins, High Mountain Tauren, Nightborne, Lightforged Draenei, Dark Iron, Kul Tiran, Mag'Har, or Zandalari as playable races.

    It's called Vanilla WoW or classic as it was the very basic (although arguably much harder) game.

    Yeah I was there for release

    The best things I remember:

    1. Level up sword skill, get a good axe, time to level axe skill
    2. Class quests (they were amazing, shaman had some of my favorites, same with warlock and paladin one was really hard but super rewarding)
    3. Hunters had to feed pets
    4. Hunters had an actual quiver with actual arrows
    5. All content was viable and the world wasn't out of sync (for example of out of sync, in legion nothing happened in any part of the world except broken isles, with the demon invasion)
    6. Talents had far more variety (though one can argue a lot of it was weak/useless, I thought it was still better than how it is now)
    7. You had to buy (learn) spells to upgrade them or get new ones
    8. Money was super hard to come by, and it was hard just to buy basic NPC merchant armor

    Hmm, lots more...but I think those are some of my favorite things about classic.
