Hi everyone, Yori here; let me just briefly introduce myself.
I first got into playing WoW at my bud's place, using his dad's PC (bc our shit PCs couldnt run it lol). That was back during the closing days of Vanilla. By the time we reached lvl 60 TBC had already been released. It was the first expansion that I played to its fullest, getting all they way to the Black Temple and sweet druid T6.
After what I refer to as the ICC debacle (i.e. weekly content nerfs...ty blizz) I quit playing WoW serioulsy and only played more or less casually, checking out all of the new expansions up until Legion during which I actually got back into raiding with my Warlock and stuck to it until recent BfA. I quit playing BfA after a couple of months when it had become clear to me that BfA was nowhere near on the same level of quality as Legion had been. I actually made it to region (EU) #1 Paladin tank on raider.io up until I quit playing. I cannot not say I did not make an effort to make the most out of the expansion, but in the end BfA just wasn't for me.
And so here I am, awaiting to re-release of Classic WoW in (hopefully) summer this year!
Currently getting myself super hyped over Classic WoW, sucking up every bit of information etc. that I can find;)
Cool, so many new people! Welcome everyone!
That's basicly me since Cataclysm.
I check new expansions in hopes they will go back to the roots, but nope, and i quit after 40 days.
BFA was the first time i didn't bought an expansion, and i am glad i didn't, what a waste of money that would have been...
Long time lurker of r/classicwow and noticed this community pop up now and again, decided to join!
The hype is unreal.
Hope to see some of you on the EU realms this summer!
Massive thank you to @teebling for introducing me to this forum via the awesome classic BG's post from Reddit!
My names Tom. Online I go by the handle of Redzy.
Started playing WoW in 2005 up till End of Cata. Re-joined at the end of MoP through to BFA, currently on a break from live until patches come in to fix the game. WoW introduced me to MMO's / RPGs & I've been in love ever since!
I spent quite a few months beginning to research & develop my own level strats on private servers to prepare for Classic WoW's launch. Ended up taking a break after starting to stream on Twitch (no private servers allowed sadly) in April 2018 but feel the itch to jump back in soon to finish preparing for Classic's launch.
I streamed leveling every class to 'cap' on the Blizzcon 2018 Demo, jumped back into retail to try a project 60 & BFA felt terrible after playing through the Classic Demo!
Incredibly excited to return to my favourite version & time in Azeroth, looking forward to making some friends & meeting like minded players to adventure with!
"Times up, lets DO this!"
Look forward to meeting everyone!
Hello everyone! I’m Hawk! Nice to meet you all! I’m Planning to roll a troll mage on a PVE server.
I always wondered how I’d fare in vanilla wow where gear was harder to get and things took
more time. WoW Classic is my chance to find out!
I have been playing WoW since 2005. I am fully hyped for Classic WoW and cannot wait to relive all of the amazing memories we all once had! So glad i found this forum!
Hello! Big thanks to Teebling for making this forum. I really enjoyed reading through all the posts before making an account. I may not post much because I prefer to read, but this place here is so much more positive, upbeat, and enjoyable than the other popular forum alternative. Now that I have this place I can stop reading there altogether.
And a big thanks to all those who posted before me. Can't have a good forum without good people.
To: Relik,Redzy, Hawk, Revz, and Linguine
Subject: Welcome to Barrens Chat!
Nice to have you on the forum. Please make yourselves at home. Killer Brew's in the fridge.
Hi I'm new here, but not new to WoW! I started in late Vanilla and I've played off and on ever since. I cannot wait to go back to Classic, the OG WoW.
Welcome everyone! I hope that a few of you can join my guild and I as we tear through classic :) (see the Epoch of Thought recruitment post).
Even if you can't, please let me know if I can help in anyway. I've played entirely too much vanilla wow in my life; always leading a raiding guild and always playing a warrior.
Make sure you thank Teebling for this awesome forum!
I used to play Priest in Vanilla (first days of MC until the end of NAXX) in EU-Magtheridon on the guild Sigil (Alliance), I was one of the main healers (Holy/Disc)
I was a bit known in the server for having all recipes /patters of enchanting and tailoring
I am planning to play in Classic with the same objectives (main healer on a friendly raiding guild and collect all tailoring/enchanting patterns/recipes )
If anybody from the days remembers me "probably not ;)", feel free to contact me, it would be great to play again with some of the greatest players I have met from that time.
I started playing WoW in BC, gotta admit on private server first, I later decided to get the real thing and bought the game. Since I had to start everything from scratch I was lvl 50 when WotLK dropped, but no-lifed the game and managed to hit lvl cap soon after. Really enjoyed the game, made it into a semi-hc raiding guild, farmed everything that was available (reps, mounts, achievs, you name it).
Then Cataclysm hit and very soon I relized the game was headed in a direction I wasn't fond of, so before Pandaria hit I decided to quit for good.
Every now and then when there were news about WoW I checked it out of curiousity, and saw that leaving was the right thing to do.
Always told myself the only reason I'd come back to playing WoW if Blizz would officially release vanilla servers. Never actually thought it'd happen, but here I am, burning with anticipation.
I know it'll be different to whatever I have played then, but I'm sure that experience will be closer to whatever I've enjoyed about the game. I love a good challenge, alone or with partners. A good example would be the robot chicken escort quests: I remember finding those while questing, having to escort it halfway thru the world, and it was a b**** of a thing to do, failing many times in solo, but when I finally managed, that was satisfying, the kind of moment that makes it worthwile. Later it was nerfed when you had to escort it for a few meters with almost no opposition along the way. It was easy but disappointing.
I wanna try, I wanna fail and I wanna try again, until I manage.
Honestly, classic is the only thing I'm legit hyped for this year, summer just seems so far away.
Welcome new people; I'll extend the offer to you that if you want to talk vanilla wow with a veteran guild leader/main tank/no lifer hardcore raider type hit me up. Hopefully some of us will even get the chance to raid together. And as always Thanks to Teebling for this forum:)
Hi all, hyped-for-Classic guy found his way to the Barrens Chat.
Been playing since TBC with some off-time halfway into expansions from Pandaria to BfA. Now I'm playing a bit on Elysium to get hyped even more and to prepare myself (and not make dumb decisions when Classic launches). Any advice from veterans?
Found this forum via Reddit and ready to talk about how everyone's getting ready for June. I'm still making up my mind about what class to main. Always played Rogue as main, but might give Shaman a go this time.
Hello all, I have been playing since the last year of Vanilla and have played every xpac except Mists. Nothing has ever felt like Vanilla. I played on Aerie Peak(Horde) until they offered free server transfers to Quel'Dorei. I was in the guild Truewatch. And mainly played Freezehaha(UD mage) Shadowgurl(UD priest) and Candythefox(BE rogue). I never got to Raid in Vanilla so I am very much looking forward to giving it a try and plan to no life BG's until I can hear Drek'Thar yelling in my sleep.

I will prevail.
Make yourself ready for the many slayings to come.
Also, willing to befriend like-minded berserkers, even nakedserkers will do at this point, rpovided that they show the proper ruthlessness."
Defective roleplayer reporting for duty.
Also, blood and thunder & lock tower ogre.
Manduin is my kind of rula'.
Yep, that sums it up nicely

Hello :) I found this forum through Redzy_TV, thanks for making it so very nice.
I started to play WoW 6 months before TBC came out. Somewhere around there when I was about 16 years old I think. My best friend and her boyfriend played it and they helped me make a new alliance character, a nightelf boomkin. Ever since I've played through the expacs casually (filthy casual!), doing my quests and such at my own pace. It wasn't until MoP and I'd gone Horde side (tauren, holy priest), and Siege of Orgrimmar came out that I found a guild in general chat shouting PR that I actually tried raiding that wasn't LFR. And so my WoW life continued until Legion where my interest started to taper off and my guild dismantled, and after about two months in BfA I actually unsubbed coz the game just felt boring to me.
I got really happy when Classic was announced, coz even though I did not play it as long as other people have done, I still remember the feeling. I hope to get that back if possible. :)
Welcome to Barrens chat, Cowyousaid.
Hope to see you around and share what you know and what else. Also hope Classic will prove to be a great experience for you. Really isn't far away now. Soon we will get to play it. Maybe if they do a beta I can get a little fix of non-pirated Classic...
