Hello. I'm dreadwail and I've been playing since launch. I currently main a priest.
S'up. Shivus from EU-Ysera originally, High Society was my first guild :)
Have played a Fury-Warrior as Main since Vanilla and will be doing so once more for WoW Classic!
Am quite excited already! Really hoping I can find a suitable guild for my desires (clear all raid content, but with a nice and friendly guild that has some casual vibes to it).
Just found this forum while randomly browsing some information on Classic.
I played in Vanilla beta all the way into a bit of Wrath at which point I became disinterested in the game. I mained both a Rogue and Mage on Sargeras PvP Server. I am likely going to be playing a Rogue this go around, although probably looking at a slightly different build from before (21/3/27 Hemo Sword build is what I am currently looking at, might even go Premeditation).
Hello Barrens Chat!
I have to start this by saying I was immediately enthralled by the layout and old-school vibe/theme of this website. I can't remember the last time an account creation was such an enjoyable process. Reminded me of that gitty feeling I had as a kid creating my very own/first WoW account (with my Dad's credit card and approval, of course.)
I stumbled across this site from a YT video made by Chimly (who I stumbled across just today) suggesting to check out Minorou's Dungeon Lore Companion on here without giving any other explanation/information than that. So, I didn't expect to discover all that this wonderful website has to offer.
It does leave me to wonder though; Where did this website come from, who created this and how long has it been around?
Hey Dread! Welcome to the site and thanks for your very kind words
I started barrens.chat in March 2018 and since then the community here has grown to make it into the lively place that you see today! Shout outs to all the new folks and of course the old timers for posting here!
Ngl I'm a pretty new WoW player (only hit 120 level halfway through Uldir). I play monk in retail WoW so it was a trek to figure out my class /race etc for Classic. (Honestly there's a lot to choose from)
Tried out most classes on a private server (Lights Hope babey) and it took me a long while to figure out which classes I like. I'll prob play gnome mage as my first char in classic (I'd prefer to play on horde but I don't like the look of the undead or troll models).
I'm really hyped for classic release since I tried out the last server on Lights hope, Silver hand because I was playing when the server started and it was a LOT of fun racing against people and scamming then out of gold. I think i made like 3g in the first 9 hours of the server by selling Lesser and Greater Magic wands,
Anyway I'm pretty new and pretty hyped so I suppose that's all there is to it
Hey guys, how are y’all doing? I’m really hyped for classic and so happy I found this forum! I’ve been playing since vanilla, and didn’t really like any expansions except TBC, and quit shortly after that. Been lurking here for a while now and I thought I’d make an account, better late than never right? (Just like the re-release of classic WoW, hehe)
I’m from Sweden if you wonder about my name. It’s all the strange extra vowels we have. I also suffer from extremely bad imagination when it comes to naming a character, so that’s why..
In the meantime while I’m not enjoying the summer weather I decided to start leveling a 19 twink on live servers. Just for the lulz! I’m playing on Al’Akir - EU on Alliance if anyone wants to join in. It’s pretty fun to see how the game have changed after all this time, but I’m thrilled that twinking is still a thing! I’m using a freebie starter account though so I’m not sure how the friend requests work, if they work at all. But if you want to try then I’m game!
Just found this page as well, while browsing for some classic content. Great forum, with some very interesting posts!
Nice to see there are so many people hyped for the re-release of classic!
I'm from Sweden and been playing since 2005. Back in Vanilla I played as Zaycho, Orc Hunter on Shattered Hand EU
Pushed through end game content and kept playing to mid of Wrath. Then I lost interest and stopped playing. Been playing some Legion and BFA but it never really caught my interest. It just feels too easy, and not rewarding.
I'm super excited for the classic release and will play as a Hunter, once again but this time it will be a Dwarf!
I will keep lurking the forum and now when I've registered I might as well start to reply!
Interested in Classic since quite a while, not sure how I managed to not find this Forum sooner. :)
I'm from Switzerland but living in Singapore & Japan, currently back and forth between them. We (my wife, kids, myself) are moving back to Europe in 2020, hence I'm rolling on an EU Server at launch! 200-300ms is very playable from Private Server experience, but looking forward to 20, 30, 50ms or whatever it will be as well! ;)
Played Vanilla wow since launch, changed Server 2 times - not because of reputation haha, but to find out the right type.. started with PvP, then moved to RP and eventually settled on a PvE Server. Had my first lv60 (Priest) on the RP Server but eventually found my home with my second lv60 - Undead Warlock - on the German speaking Sen'Jin Server. Raided the vanilla content there and rocked through BC until Black Temple. Never seen Naxxramas however.
This time around planning to roll an an English speaking Server, taking it more casual 10-20h a week once things have settled after the initial launch phase. I'm a bit indecisive still on my class (Priest, Shaman, Hunter or Warlock) as well as if I should roll on an PvE or PvP Server. Will make up my mind in the last 6 weeks, also depending if I might come across a suitable Guild beforehand or not.
For the Horde!
Welcome to the Barrens.chat, Gunma.
Way late to the party but super happy I found this site. Started playing in TBC, have played every xpac since vanilla. I only recently discovered pservers or I probably would have quit retail ages ago. PVP is the only aspect I really care about, by I thoroughly enjoy trying to experience as many aspects of the game as possible.
Nothing wrong with that! I played both in Vanilla and loved both!
Enjoy Ironforge because nothing beats it!
I so wish I was a dwarf again and can enter that place with pride!
The Burning Crusade is coming soon
Yeah you’re right, Ironforge is amazing! Dwarf is of course the only obvious alternative for an Alliance race as well!
Glad to see forums are still a thing, found yall on r/classicwow
Been hyped for Classic ever since it was announced, even though I'm a wrath baby;
I've been flip-flopping between pservers and retail throughout the years, can't wait to play the real thing.
Hi there, I am Scaredy. I played a Human Warrior Called Opeth in the guild ReDeYe on Runetotem EU back in Vanilla. I've played on and off since then but never enjoyed the game quite like i did back then. I am looking forward to returning to Vanilla and playing with a real understanding of the game. I AM SO EXCITED!
