My impressions of Classic so far

    I've never played WoW pre-TBC (was playing other games), so excuse my ignorance here.

    What exactly is there to do at Classic endgame? Get to lvl 60, then what?
    Truthfully? The Classic endgame was good because the community did tons of events, RP stuff and organized mass world PvP battles.. or alliance city sieges.

    Back then the RPG fans were the majority, instead of the MMO fans. It wasn't about chasing loot, it was about having fun for the sake of having fun.

    I worry Classic will get boring very quickly if they can't, or don't, get as organized as they used to be.
    Reaching for a new, bigger player base has been what has changed MMO's more than any other factor. When RPers became a minority there was a huge change, then when solo players became the majority just as big a change, followed by the casual easy mode that the whole of gaming came under the spell off. This had more of an effect than even F2P and cash shops.

    MMO's made for players who were mostly Rping, grouping and did not want a bite sized entertainment experience were simply made in a different way.

    I played for two weeks.  It's all I could manage.  Just isn't what I'm looking for.

    Enjoying it.
    Taking my sweet time, not rushing anything.
    Very relaxing.

    Shame there aren't more games like this anymore.

    I've been having a great time. The server is lively, people are talking to each other, helping each other complete quests and dungeons, making new friends and revisiting old ones. Spending way more time playing than is responsible, but I'm cool with it. It's nice to be pulled into a game like this again.

    I have 3 toons and they are all around 16. I am playing very slowly helping people and just talking to people and being friendly or a nuisance depending on their point of view. If anyone asks for help I will be one of the very first to offer my assistance. I think this makes playing the game so much better. Yes occasionally the people I help know nothing about strategy and get me killed by rushing ahead but I think this is all part of their learning experience. We all started somewhere. Many new players who have never played WoW are playing.

    My Orc Warlock is alone on the Horde side getting no assistance with crafting items unlike my Paladin and Hunter on the Alliance side who seems to always get drops that benefit the other classes. I promised myself although this has been so very hard to do, not to roll a Shaman or Druid on the Horde side until I get the other three to level 30+. I do love the lovely Cow eyes I can make with the Tauren Female and the awful milk jokes I can crack.

    It's strange but every trip and I am making a lot of trips back and forth due to limited bag space and the lack of banks and so on does not bother me. I just enjoy the scenery as I slowly trot back and hand in quests and take others and I have no urgency in my actions. Just plain enjoying the pace of the game and I am not the only one as the server I am on that is often shown as medium in terms of population has people all over. I think people accept the pace and they themselves also slow down and don't play the game at breakneck speed to prove something because it is fixed at level 60. It won't go higher than that and this may have some effect on the perception of time and playing slowly to enjoy everything.

    I'm so tempted to make a Troll Hunter just to make the dangerous trudge to Teldrassil to get the Strigid Owl for the heck of it. I mean why not just do everything you can to make the experience interesting. If not for the bow bonus I would make her use a gun even and  take engineering to boot like my Paladin.

    Or make a Night Elf hunter and make him get Ressan the Needler. Not only you get a very rare pet, but flyers are the best leveling/farming pets because of their AOE agro.

    Although I encourage you to play anything you want. Keep in mind tauren have extra hp which is great while leveling, which is really good.

    Is it just me or they really made Classic easier than it is on pirate servers?

    If you leveled up early before major content patches like BWL, it's going to be easier for sure to the point some classes make it seem like a joke. Not sure what patch it was 2.0.1 or 1.12 that nerfed raiding content by 30%, but if that's in the game then even pugs will be doing most raids.

    I think Pservers made it harder than Vanilla.
    Classic is the real deal.

    Personally I like Pserver difficulty more.
    None of that Spellcleave shit. I hate it.

    Update: I broke all my promises. I dumped the Paladin and Alliance Hunter. Went all HORDE. Made a Tauren Druid which is my main now and I love it in spite of the awful milk jokes then my Troll Shaman which is my avatar and believe or not, an Orc Rogue. The Orc warlock is on hiatus I may play her later.

    I think the rogue is quintessentially what roleplaying is like in an MMORPG .The poison quest the way you stealth up and pickpocket and then backstab is so much fun. I don't PvP but when they introduce the BGs I am going to try my luck at it with the Druid, Shaman and Rogue. I have never actually played one before but may be long last after all these years in this genre my tastes are changing. Although I am best at playing a healer I like the rogue to bits. Plus I have the funkiest hairdo on her.

    I had a Troll hunter who I even took the Zeppelin to Grom Gol to get to Westfall to get the screech from the Carrion Bird there and I took engineering even for guns but I lost interest in her after awhile. Could be because the fighting on the Hunter is simply too easy. I may go back to her after getting the other three to 40+.

    So far still enjoying the game. I think the way the game plays, the pace, allows you to really appreciate the music, art and environments to their fullest and the community is helpful and patient. Few bad hats but this is a normal RP server so you don't get too many badly behaved players.

    It is easier
  • AxxarAxxar Member UncommonPosts: 102
    Love that the dungeons are difficult again. You can get really punished when you mess up in the end game dungeons. UBRS for some reason stands out as being easier than the others, except for perhaps the dog boss and Drakkisath. But Scholo and Dire Maul North and West in particular are pretty dope.

    Two months in and 80% of Servers are High, 10% Full and 10% Medium at peak times.

    It doesn’t look like is nostalgia.
    I met many ‘new’ vanilla players and they are all loving it.
    Everything you achieve is so meaningful compared to retail where items and achievements rain on you like there’s no tomorrow.
  • JakdstripperJakdstripper Member RarePosts: 2,408
    i have to say that for me it was definitely nostalgia that brought me back. that nostalgia did wear out in about a month and i decided to cancel my sub but mostly because i just don't want to pay the monthly fee. 
    however, i must say that it was very refreshing to play Vanilla. no over-complicated, convoluted skills with a page-long explanation. defined class role (things that only your class can do). a distinct challenge in both mob difficulty and leveling (having to watch what your pulls and saving your mana). people walking around in world, making it seem alive and vibrant. good old fashioned interactions to find a group with people ACTUALLY wanting to group and finish the dungeon. the general slower paced combat. real, and spontaneous world pvp. 

    it is astounding to me that in 2019 just about all mmos out there still pale in comparison to good old fun of vanilla WoW. we have gone leaps and bounds in graphic details, but haven't been able to even replicate the simple, fun, engrossing and satisfying mechanics of a 15 year old game.
