Yeah most of my friends interested in Classic quit regular WoW awhile ago. Only a few of them came back in 8.2.
There is a post on Reddit about which servers the big streamers are planning on rolling on. It appears that Fairbanks is the pst PvP server that won’t have the big streamers on it. Apparently they will be going to Herod which is east coast PvP.
Imagine actually having to use some skill and thought in managing your resources instead of brainlessly slamming buttons...
As an EQ1 player, my favorite thing about all the WoW Classic talk is laughing at people talking about how hard WoW classic is.
It’s not the dark souls of MMO’s, it’s just that it’s not the Call of Duty either. Having limited resources encourages decision making and an analysis of risk vs reward. It is crucial to teach new players that their resources are finite so that learn to pace themselves and tread cautiously in a dangerous world.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone say classic wow is difficult. If it is they are certainly wrong. I played EQ, DAoC, old Ultima, Shadowbane, etc. Those games were way harder than classic.
Hahaha, I did the same thing. Still play that same char now (though he's a void elf these days >_>). There's literally one spell that early and it runs oom killing one mob that you can then finish off hitting for 2 damage with your melee dagger. Then you afk for 10 seconds while your mana regens or just beat on things with your dagger which is about as effective as being afk. I don't know how I managed to get through this all these years ago, I guess the very novelty of it all carried me through but none of that is there anymore and I'm just left with the shitty, dated, tedious game design everywhere. If I were to get to 60 my options are go 9/21/21 and just spam one spell, the same one I had at level 1! Oh boy. Truly amazing the power and flexibility of these old talent trees that opened up so many ways to play.
Er, they added Battle of Dazar'Alor, Crucible of Storms (a short one) and most recently The Eternal Palace in raid terms, and they've just added Operation: Mechagon at the same time as The Eternal Palace in 5-man terms. It's in line with the usual pace of releases.
Until you can ban specs in MDI, I don't see how it can continue as an eSport considering views have dropped almost every time.
Bans sound dumb to me. But they could put reasonable limits on composition... like maybe no more than 1 of a single spec of a class.Until you can ban specs in MDI, I don't see how it can continue as an eSport considering views have dropped almost every time.
It's 99% Warrior tank, Rest Druid and now 3 outlaw rogues. As a viewer why would you want to watch?
It's not interesting and it has a lot to do with Blizz designing dungeons around the MDI instead of actually making them fun like in Legion.
Blizzard has an official thread for getting in touch with people from vanilla serversSo this is a super long shot but all the WoW classic stuff made me a bit nostalgic of my old raiding days...
Anybody here was on Dalaran (and/or Drenden once they offered free realm transfer) back around classic/BC/WOTC mostly...
I was raiding in "DOOM" on Horde side and "Flight of the Phoenix" on Alliance...
You do get a 370 weapon right away. And shortly after that you get your heart unlock and they give you like 1x 385 azerite piece and enough pearls to upgrade it to 400. Don't upgrade it. That quest is optional. Use the pearls you get for free to buy 4 pieces of 385 gear from the vendor of your choice (no weapons, rings or trinkets, but there is azerite gear there too).
Good information, thanks! I am currently on the quest for the heart upgrade and the enemies in the cave murder me. lol Might also be because I am a bit rusty with the class.You do get a 370 weapon right away.

I defected to WoW from EQ after I played the WoW beta. At the time it felt like WoW was far less of a time sink and valued my time more (I did the Monk and Cleric epics in EQ... the camping man the camping!) and you could actually make progress solo.
That’s definitely wrong. I think the timer was actually between 1-2 hours.
Yup, prioritize those emissaries when they're up. You can try to speed it up by just doing all their world quests whenever they're up but it's a slog.
Here's Blizz's own patch-by-patch synopsis. Each story beat gets a small paragraph but if looking for something more engaging there are a ton of talented YouTubers. I like Nobbel87 (sometimes the accent is a bit much, heh).Is there a good resource for returning players to learn what's new in retail? I haven't seriously played since WotLK and due to classic forcing me to sub I decided to jump into retail with a new level 1 and I feel completely lost. With Cata completely changing the classic zones, and all the npc's talking about the battle in Northrend, I was also wondering if there's somewhere that covers the lore so I understand what has happened in the world since I played.
Perfect, thanks! Now I just need help catching up on actual gameplay systems, it's so different than I remember lol...
Yeah, we're back in for our second night of trying her tonight, so I'm going to take on board all the advice this thread offered - and some fairly extensive exploring of logs and play mechanics over the weekend - to hopefully start making some decent inroads. We'll see how it goes!So after last night I've determined that Eternal Palace is gonna be BfA's "fuck you and your loot" tier for me. 20+ kills and I've gotten 3? drops. Cool. I have a work interference this week on Wednesday which is going to prevent me from being in raid for the full time which is shitty but I literally cannot get out of it so I guess I'll just miss out on more loot this week as well.
That said, we got 3/8 Heroic last night. Ashvane Heroic is something. I understand the fight from a tanking perspective and I think the rest of the raid understands the mechanics. It's just tightening everything and meeting that DPS check. That's intense.
Good luck! I saw a positioning tweak I want us to hammer out and then just people getting more gear in theory will help as well. For a first wall, she's not awful. It's just the damn shield DPS check! We'll get there. And so will you!Yeah, we're back in for our second night of trying her tonight, so I'm going to take on board all the advice this thread offered - and some fairly extensive exploring of logs and play mechanics over the weekend - to hopefully start making some decent inroads.
