The Big List of WoW Classic Guides and Resources
Last updated 22nd April 2019
This is a comprehensive listing of non-video format resources for WoW Classic players. It includes guides, opinion, tools, spreadsheets, data and other information pages that you may find useful when the game launches. Hopefully this page provides a portal to other community sites outside of Barrens Chat and helps everyone find what they're looking for :smile:

If you would like to add your resource to the list private message me or leave a reply below and I will do so at the soonest opportunity.

Nota bene I have done my best to curate this list of resources by selecting those of high accuracy and reputation. Many guides are however based on anecdotal evidence and private server emulations of Classic meaning that their viability in patch 1.13 could be affected.

Fantastic! This really helps with the pre-planning and prep. The mage section helps jog my fading memory. Thank you!

Our time will come.
