Hey all!

I've been playing WoW on-and-off since it was in closed beta. Back then I was 14, and had the time to invest - vanilla through WotLK were easily my most active times. Since then, I've played every expansion, but only raided in a few of them (MoP, Legion, BfA).

Back in the day I played on Mal'Ganis, first on the Alliance side in a guild called Eternal Union. It ended up being somewhat ironically named, since the leader stole 2,000 gold from the bank and transferred servers. After that, I flipped to Horde and joined the Goon Squad at what was probably the height of their WoW shenanigans. Good times, there.

The biggest part of the game for me back then was the social aspect, something that is woefully missing from the live version of WoW. I played for a while at the beginning of BfA, maxed out a few characters and ran up to mythic 10s. I've completely lost interest at this point. In the past I would start a new character and tool around in the old world, but it's so empty now it's almost depressing.

I am hyped for classic - I loved the game back then, especially the RPG aspect and slower pace. I plan to re-create my first characters (Human Mage, Dwarf Hunter) and take my sweet time getting them to sixty. We'll see how it goes now that I work full time and am days away from getting married. Luckily, the soon-to-be wife played WoW, too. So I think she'll get it ;)

If there's any old Mal'Ganis peeps here, hmu.

What a nostalgic forum. Nice!
Hello everyone, I'm Gallow; originally from EU Sporregar, later EU Sha'tar. My characters include Oozeling the undead warrior, Scrolls the druid, and of course Gallow the Undead Priest. My most active main was Furude the Blood elf paladin but thats TBC heh.
I've played WoW from final patches of vanilla (did MC/BWL at most), all through TBC (cleared all raids except Sunwell) and Wotlk (all raid content cleared). I dabbled my feet in some MoP, and have renewed my subscription once or twice after that, but never played for more than a week.

I'm excited as hell for vanilla - although since I don't have a gaming PC anymore I need to take a look into that. Indicentally, I'm thinking of buying a gaming laptop these days as space is a luxary at my home right now (I'm living in Japan and the apartment is not that large). Anyone has any recommendations / cons-pros / tips for playing WoW via a laptop? I've never played anything on a laptop so not sure if that's gonna be my thing, but then again I may not have any other choice.

As to what to roll during Classic, I'm torn between either an Undead Warlock, Orc Hunter or a Tauren Druid. I will be playing 5-10 hours per week at most, so outside of MC I probably won't be raiding much. Druid leveling seems the most fun, but I don't want to be a healer at lvl 60. I used to be a very good tank (never played as a druid tank though), so I may take that route again and as long as it's 5-mans/MC, it should be probably fine.

Anyway, thanks for having me!

Hey guys!

I have been an off and on again player of WoW since Cata released. I was in my teens during WotLK and that is when I played the most. I am really looking forward to the Classic release this summer.

I am looking to join a horde guild at some point. I will be a casual player as I won't be spending vast amounts of time in game. Essentially I am looking for a guild that prioritizes real life over the game, but still wants to try and progress through content.

Thanks!

PS: As you can tell from my name, I'm a Nebraska Cornhuskers fan. I'm sure there are a few others around here.

I'm looking for a very similar group as you are. Real life prevents me from playing how I did as a kid. Let me know if you find something! I'll even forgive you for being a Nebraska fan!

Greetings everyone!

I first encountered WoW when I was able to play the open beta two weeks before the official launch of the game in the EU. I still remember playing a Night Elf female and not hating the game. Can't remember the class though.

I did not played it at launch though since at the time paying monthly for a game was absurd to me. Instead I played Guild Wars for a bit. A colleague of mine at the time was talking all the time about WoW and eventually I decided to just give it a try. I mean, I get a free month so at least I would be getting my hours worth.

When I made my account it was June 2005. That was when it began. I made a human female Warlock and leveled to around 43 or so, before stopping for about 3 months. I was in the Un'Goro crater area when I stopped. After those 3 months I resumed again and eventually made it to level 60. I was happy my guild at the time did not kicked me for being inactive. I was on the EU PvP server called Dunemaul and my first guild there was called Ryfari on the alliance side.

My first character, the Warlock, took 19 day's of /played to reach level 60.

Eventually I made a Rogue because raiding as a Warlock was boring for me. Just spamming shadowbolts all the time. This was because of the debuff limit. I was not able to use my full tool set.

I raided up-to and including parts of AQ-40 with the guild. Also loved doing PvP and made Rank 7 I believe (Knight-Captain).

Eventually I rolled a Hunter on the Horde side (Orc Female) and managed to level that to 60 in 2 weeks. Just in time before TBC launched.

I plan on leveling a Hunter this time as well (Night Elf female Alliance side (still subject to change, this or Orc female)). After having played all the classes many times and playing the BlizzCon Demo I decided Hunter is just my thing and the perfect class for me to casually level in Classic WoW. Since I only plan on leveling once I am going to take my time and enjoy the ride. I am in no rush this time.

Great to meet you all!

Hi everyone,

been waiting for Classic for a looooooong time, it's finally happening. I've played WoW since vanilla, but the late expansion didn't get a grip on me.

I'm looking for a group of players ont GMT-3 or GMT-4 timezones, Alliance side.

Cheers

Hi! :mrgreen:

I've played WoW back in 2005 as a tauren hunter called Dodeandus on EU's Azjol Nerub server. I've played a bit on classic pservers the last few years, but now I'm waiting on the official release. And I can't wait!

This time around, I'm planning on rolling either an orc warlock, or a troll mage. I'm leaning towards the warlock the most, since I leveled an lock to 60 on a pserver and I loved it.

ABOUT me: I run my own Dutch gaming- and entertainment website, called https://radmag.nl/. If you speak Dutch (or have a good translator) I'd love for you to check it out and give feedback. I post content about WoW Classic obviously and I post it more frequent and faster than big Dutch newswebsites!

I'll be playing Classic on a PvP server with my little brother and about 6 IRL friends. I'm hyped!

Hello!

Been playing on and off since TBC; very excited to play vanilla. I've played various classes and races. I'm in disgust over the newer expansions and have not played in a while. Ready to dive in and explore.

Thank you,

:)

Hey guys,

Zurgan here, played from the very first day of Vanilla until WoD. WoD had so many high expectations that were not met, I leaved the game. Been on and off to try Legion and BfA, but the game just doesn't have any appeal for me anymore.

I played war from the beginning until the end of BC before joining IRL friends for WoTLK as a pal.

Really hope to live that grind again and play an actual MMORPG and not that game it has been since a few expansions now.

Hey all,

For anyone who is interested, this is probably going to be a Bible... Here we go.

My first experience with vanilla was from my older brother, he was playing since launch with his friends and I'd always go interrupt him and call him a nerd.
On my 11th birthday, 15th of February 2006 my brother gave me Wow as a present and told me, go ahead, start playing and call me a nerd again.

So I did. I created my first character, undead rogue. I was such a bad player that I always ran into the other room to my brother who had several level 60 characters to ask him how to do a certain quest etc.

He eventually got mad at me for asking to many questions to the point where he said. "figure it out, I'm not helping you anymore" and he really stood by that. It got to a point where I would create a dummy character to whisper him, asking him for help and hoping he didn't realize it was me.

I got my rogue to 58 and several alts to 30-45. Did a lot of pvp while still being such a noob at WoW.

Today I'm a retired hardcore raider with several top 20/ top 15 world titles. I've stopped playing retail wow and cannot wait for vanilla to launch. I've also played on Kronos and leveled up a few characters to 60. Cannot wait until summer and all hell brakes loose.

Hope to see you all in August!

Regards
Marcus

Hello. Been lurking this forum as a guest but decided to make an account because why not.

Been playing WoW retail since 2006-2011. Started in mid Vanilla and stopped mid Cataclysm.

Got to the level 57 + some alts in Vanilla at the age of 11 before TBC. In TBC I had a few level 70s and cleared BT and MH.

I was an altoholic and had every class except Mage at 80 in WotLK and ran Naxxramas over and over and over again.

Since then I have been playing a lot of private servers. I have never been tempted to go back to retail, since Cataclysm with the Guild Perks that made Guilds hungry for gold and mass invites I already felt like the social parts of the game started to vanish.

I had most fun in the private server scene on the Feenix Emerald Dream server, where I raided with a Guild <Ingenium>. We moved forward to a WotLK private server after the shutdown.


I am now 24 years old with a full time job 6 am to 3 pm, or as I would put it, 06:00-15:00.

In classic I will go full main, max 1 alt if even that. I will roll Troll Warrior and Tank, tank and tank. I decided to go Prot Warrior because ever since I played a Tank class it has never gone wrong. I also want to experience more quality playing, as in, logging in and not spending too much time forming groups.


If I would present my future character:

Name: Tzae***
Race: Troll
Gender: Male
Class: Warrior
Spec: Protection
Professions: Engineering and Mining
Realm type: PvP
Availability: 4 - 11 PM CEST (16:00 - 23:00)


My wish is to be the Main Tank or seconday Tank when classic comes. I am a dedicated player and I hope we all get to have one hell of an experience!

Hello!

I started playing WoW in late TBC, (February 2008), Started as a warrior but had to quickly switch to level up a rogue, because the guild I was in wanted a rogue. So I have never experienced WoW Vanilla firsthand, but when I began there were still some of the functions from vanilla in the game, like buying mats for vanish etc, ranking up weapon skills and so on. Have played retail since then with the exception of a break mid-Legion, until like for 3 months ago. Reason for that was lacking of time. Playing 2 hours a week didnt feel meaningful to me. Im a better position now (can play like 2-4 hours a day (or night I should say)).
So really hyped about classic coming. Are going to play with working friends at first. Will be trying to level up a warrior tank and a rogue.
But Im a altoholic, so I will create one of each class, on both factions. Everything with class, race and name already made up. And yes, Im a neutral. Dabbling with both sides, even if the Alliance have had my preference in retail. But in classic I will go horde with my working friends.

IRL Im a 41 year old guy from the green plains of southern Sweden, Living in a small town with my wife and cat. Working sundays.-thursday between 12-21 will make raiding a bit hard to fulfill.. But I have the patience and maybe will find a guild together with my working friends that raids in the night.

OK, now I stop rambling and lets hype some more for classic and enjoy it!

Cheers

Hey guys,

Formerly UD priest & tauren druid, rolling shaman for classic.

Started playing Xmas 2006 on Nagrand-EU, but mainly Al'Akir-EU since WOTLK. Been on vanilla private servers from around WOD release.

Big into (horde) speed levelling, need more horde runners to chat to and saw there's a thread for it :mrgreen: First heard about the site from @teebling's incredible wallpapers, which have been on slideshow ever since. The site design looks great btw, props to whoever's working on that.

Hello Everyone, hoping this reaches some old friends from Dragonblight server. My name was Rowenn, I was a Human Warrior in the Guild 'Echelon'. My dad's character was Chassuer he was a Human Paladin. We both came fresh from playing Asheron's Call 2, The announcement that the game was being shut down led us to quit playing and search for a new game. My cousin had an issue of Computer Gaming World and the full spread on World of Warcraft was in it. We had decided to play based on that article, and we all have played every expansion since. I was only 13 at the time so my leveling was done after school and homework but i would pull some late nights on a shared laptop with a blanket over my head and a secret Troll Shaman that my dad didn't know about haha.

I am pumped for classic and i really hope pfUI can be ported to the 7.3.5 client that classic is being built on.

Hello!

Really looking forward to playing Classic!
I was told it releases this Summer but as of today it is still snowing in Norway ..making the release feel sooo far off :(

I plan on playing a priest just like my brother did back in the days!

I work 07:00-15:00 2 weeks and 14:00-23:00 every third week. This made it impossible for me to get a Mythic raid spot in Legion :(. But if anyone care to take a shift worker for 40mans then HMU! Prefer Alliance.

Hi all,

Great forum, love the community here. I played in 2006, first server was Quel'Thalas EU, was a pretty new server. Was Allance there for a while - NE rogue called Zord, hence my forum name - cheesey name, but it's nostalgic! Then rolled on Defias Brotherhood, Horde side with a different name. Was heavily into the RP community then, was an officer of an RP guild for a while.

Quit just after WOD, and am likely to come back for Classic. The game isn't even released yet but I'm already obsessed, browsing every forum available! Have been horde since late vanilla, so will likely roll Alliance to relive my first few months in game.

Hello everyone

I really like what I am seeing on this site, and have been browsing for days as a guest.
I started WoW with my friends in school, specially with my best friend with whom my WoW journey have been with. We played classic through WotLK where he unfortunately passed away before Cataclysm, and I have been playing up untill BfA very loosely and not focusing on anything specific. Through the last years my main concern has been classic on different unnamed servers :)... Have even sourced out all the old Bradygames books and atlas books, so I am prepared!

Today I am 26 years old, live in Esbjerg, Denmark with my fiancée and our 8 month old son.
My hobby will always be gaming and then I am an avid whisky collector / drinker!
I will only be playing classic in the evening due to work and prioritizing my family. So will be searching for likeminded casual people to play with once it goes live.

See you in Azeroth!
