    It wasn't harder, it was just slower. Took longer to kill mobs, more xp to level up, gold wasn't as available and things like mounts and leveling cost a lot more, reps were grindier and no daily quests to help out. Everything just took longer to do.
    You just contradicted yourself. It was slower because it was harder.

    Classic WoW is like rewinding your girlfriend back to when she was 16.....except now you are 45 and the whole thing is frankly quite disturbing :)

    I'm not sure how can possible apply a perverted analogy to a video game.  Cant watch an old good movie either because its like going out with an under-aged girl?  Wtf?

    I would have preferred them to have attempted a hybrid version myself, a sort of Classic plus, keeping content that expanded gameplay area. But who knows that may be next on the cards. After all new regions do not necessarily come with new rulesets.

    But that's just a possible future for now here is hoping classic takes off, and as all the other classic servers have in other MMORPG's I see no reason this one will not too.
    I'm thinking you are right. It's inevitable that a lot of newer features will be missed once players start playing it.

    I see this:
    "as players progress, we’ll introduce more content like Alterac Valley, the Ahn’Qiraj War Effort and Naxxramas."

    MMOExposed, is that the AV you are talking about?
    Yes. Old AV is a must for me. To do all that grinding again to be competitive,  I must have my old AV fetish satisfied. That was a straight up classic. Being scared of NPCs while watching my faction from enemy faction player army was a great feeling. Choke point and all. If they release that version of AV from the patch before TBC, I cant cosign that because it killed Old AV to make Arena the new main PvP. So we will see which version of AV they go with.
    If Korrack is missing from AV in Classic, I'll be extremely disappointed with the AV aspect.

    WoW Classic is an opportunity for Blizzard to make money.
    Holly fudge the level of deduction that was put in this one is astaonding, how do you do it!

    Its elementary by dear @Branko2307


    If you stop and think about it though the "clamour" for classic WoW has existed for years - and was not just ignored by Blizzard but actively dismissed.

    So what has changed? As @Phry says BfA seems to be another expansion that "underperformed". It sold - clearly - but then people left. And Blizzard is seeking a return to the gravy train that was millions of subscribers every month and not simply a  short term blip every 2 years.

    Ugh i was being sarcastic.

    You can sum it up by saying Classic is a version of WoW made for adults before it was infantilized to chase a new market by alienating their old audience.

    How was the Warlock back in vanilla days? Back in the early days I only played Paladin and Mage back in 2004 and only got into Warlocks much later in WoTLK and then it became my favorite and most played.
    How to describe them? A pet class combined with dots? Imps being the typical pet - for dps and you kiting (not quite an EQ1 druid but);  or voidwalker to tank plus dots (not quite an EQ1 mage or illusionist).  

    Also:
    Corruption back then wasn't a dot though but a "delayed bomb". Huge damage but a delay of something like 20s. I remember being in a group doing Scarlet Monastery (I think) and a cleric asking (ranting) why I had just cast corruption on a boss they had just cast sheep on - they calmed down when I pointed out that it didn't break Sheep (or whatever Sheep was called). From memory the delay before it went off was slightly longer than the duration of Sheep. Sheep wore off, corruption exploded and boss was on half health. ; and then it would go off and take out c. 50% of the boss's hp.

    And then there were soul shards. Not a problem ordinarily but for raids - Molten Core needed lots - you had to spend a while beforehand (like 20 minutes) farming them. Saved us in one of the first  (ever not beta) Onyxia raids though - but not Molten Core - even though we had all the servers max level 'locks!

    Have to try and remember how it played in e.g. Scholomance - I largely have memories of vivid green though!
    I'm partial to the DOTs'R'us affliction game play over other specs and after some googling it seems the consensus is that afflocks were in a good place in Vanilla... I know what I'm going to play :)

    Corruption was always a Dot. You're think of Curse of Doom which is in classic as well, a different skill that also has a chance to summon a doomguard.

    @Iselin Forgot to mention that affliction warlocks were - probably - the most "fun" spec to play.
