I gotta say, I feel rather silly not seeing the "Introduce yourself" thread until now :)
Hi! I'm a long time player of WoW, i've been playing since Burning Crusade and still play to this day! I started playing when I was 7, so I didn't accomplish much of anything for a very long time, but I enjoyed exploring this vast world (and dieing, a lot...). Nowadays I enjoy raiding, though I only PUG them. I've gotten every Ahead of the Curve achievement from Archimonde to Uu'nat and am working on Queen Azshara at the moment and hope to get that before launch.
But Retail doesn't matter! I am here to experience what I missed, to play Classic. I currently have the lucky ability to play all day, so i'll easily be playing 10+ hours a day every day until Kel'thuzad is dead at my feet (well, dead a few times, gotta get dem atieshes). There is one thing in WoW I have always dreamed of, and I mean literally DREAMED of, and that is the Black Qiraji Battle Tank. I've always been sad about the fact that I missed it, and that I wasn't here to witness it or go after it. Now I have my chance! In addition, i'm excited to be a part of a community, to be there when the realm begins and to be part of the process of it growing into what it becomes.
I enjoy minmaxing, but not to the extreme usually. I dab my feet in PvP, sometimes soak my legs if it means better gear, but I definitely don't focus on PvP even if there is an upgrade deep into it. I read guides, watch videos, bring consumables or anything else that gives me that edge. But going for every single world buff every week is a little crazy, I plan on only doing what is convenient or not too time consuming for everybody or during weeks that are super important.
I can't wait for Classic, to say WoW has had an impact on my life is an understatement bigger than C'thun's canonical size. I know for a fact there will be bumps along the road, but its a road i'm glad to be here for this time around.
EDIT: Oh and I found out about Barrens Chat from Reddit. I remember seeing the original post introducing it, but I forgot about it until I saw a comment mention it recently. I'll be honest, I came here for guild recruitment. But instead I found a wonderful website! :D
Congrats man you’re member number 2000!
Took one year to hit 1k and just 3 months to hit 2k. Welcome everybody to the shit show!!
What prize does he win!?
Played WoW through all of BC and Wotlk but fell out of love with the game after that. Been back for short periods of time during each expansion for a month or 2 but never enjoyed it as much. 2 irl friends and I are starting a guild on an EU server for pvp and pve and would love to have more people join. We love the social aspect of WoW and are excited to have it back! We've started a Discord for the guild already and are eagerly awaiting the classic launch. See you guys in Stranglethorn!
Brand new here. Just saying a very quick hello and that my knickers are in a twist for Classic - Cant wait!

Hello everyone! I've been lurking around here for couple of weeks, but I've just been too lazy to register earlier. I just came here to say, that I've been absolutely loving the vibes and atmosphere here! Such a friendly and helpful community (just like the original ig. Barrens chat lol).
Nelf Drood btw (after being Horde member for a decade)!

Hello hello! Haven't been playing toooo long. Tried WoW out back in the bc days but MMOs just weren't for me back then. Tried again and finally clicked with it during the WoD xpac and now I love it! Very much looking forward to playing vanilla WoW soon. Mostly looking forward to a more social experience with WoW and see what I missed out on back in the day!
full time from beta way back when to wrath and on and off since cata.
My rogue will return to Classic and INCREDIBLY excited!

Hey all, ClassicRaids here!
We're building a website to better serve the community where we've noticed there's a gap. You see, there's a lack of guild search resources. Sure, there are a number of places you can post a message for your guild, but how are players going to find you through when there are hundreds of other guilds doing the same thing? We offer players the ability to sort, filter, search, and browse through our ever-growing list of guilds.
We're seeking more feedback from the Classic WoW community about how we can better serve you!
Hey all, Started playing WoW back in late-BC and spent most of my time running around pretending I was a scarlet crusader. Didnt really get into the game til Wrath and fell in love with Death Knights and mained one up until BfA when I switched to warrior.
Looking forward to classic and cant wait to get those real WoW adventures in again.
Love the site here and hope it continues to grow!
I've been reading these forums trying to contain my hype to finally get to play classic for the fist time.
I'm a TBC player and I've been GM of our Guild twice through Cata and WoD. With extensive experience MT raiding in WoTLK with a different Guild.
I've registered today to advertise our Guild for any EU guys and girls that want to play Horde and enjoy both competitive and social raiding.
Our Advert: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1827
I'm looking forward to getting involved with this community and have some experience writing guides. Cant wait to see you all in the game, only 30 days to go!!!
Pretty new WOW player here and can´t wait to experience classic. Never knew about this chat!
Currently levelling an Orc warlock but unsure whether to go horde or alliance in classic... :P
Will definitely check this website out as i'm hoping to find some cool and casual people to play with! After all it is an MMO XD
Enjoy and as of now... Lok'tar!
I'm relatively new to WoW, I first started playing just when BfA came out. Then I took a break and came back this summer to play some more BfA, but I kinda lost the desire to play because modern WoW is just a grind to lvl 120 basically. You don't need to care about professions and gear until you get to the latest expansion which is something I don't like. It's always been sad for me to play BC or WotLK content in the modern WoW, because I know that I wasn't around during these times. You just do a couple of quest chains and you're already ready to leave the zone.
I only went to school when WoW launched and I remember dreaming of playing it during Cataclysm expansion when I read articles in Igromania (a Russian magazine) about interesting stuff happening in the world. I didn't even know about gameplay that much, I just wanted to experience events that the community made itself. I couldn't afford buying the game and the monthly subscription because I was like 12-13 years old. I remember finally convincing my mom to buy me that WoW Cataclysm DVD in the videogame store. But I was frustrated when I found out that it was only the expansion itself and I needed to have the base game and the subscription... As I mentioned I played WoW properly for the first time when BfA launched and I must say that this experience is not very appealing for me. BUT NOW FINALLY I will get to play the WoW where all of the things actually have a purpose!
Hey everyone, a really nice community here, I've been lurking for a while but felt it's time to join in as well.
Started playing during TBC but I'd say I missed most of the expansion, dinged 70 around the time when Sunwell released. I played a lot during WotLK which remains my favourite expansions and burned out a bit during/after Firelands. After that I've played on and off but have levelled at least one char to max in each expansion. I'm currently playing retail but I don't have time for serious raiding so it's currently mainly BGs and arena.
Throughout the years I've played on both Alliance and Horde and I have multiple Affliction Warlocks (3), Restoration Shamans (3) and Protection Warriors (2). I'm planning on playing a bit on all of them in Classic but it remains to be seen which will be my focus.
I would love to get through Naxx40 as I enjoyed the raid in WotLK but likely I won't have the time to go beyond levelling and going through the dungeons.
Hello all new members and welcome to barrens.chat!
Oh, Barrens chat... what a time trip. Hi, everyone. I'm Illustria, Tauren Druid who can't WAIT to relive the old days of Vanilla. Looking forward to WPvP, hours-long AV matches, and being a part of raid progression from the beginning this time around.
Hello everybody, i'm Zolid, a newcomer in WoW Vanilla ^^
I've started my journey in World of Warcraft in Cataclysm and i've no idea how it felt to play in Vanilla, TBC or WoTLK. I've played through all my life tanks, to be specific warriors. I found really interesting changing my playstyle.
By the way, I don't have any friends that want to play with me in WoW Classic, so it'll be nice if i could find 'party-fellows' or guilds with people to play with.
Thank you everybody, we'll see each other in Azeroth!
So happy to be a part of the community. I started playing WoW back in 2005, which I still believe to this day was the best version of WoW. I will never forget when our guild Tank got Thunderfury before BC came out. Our guild was called 'RoE' on Khaz'goroth. It was a huge moment after so much work and dedication for our guild. I even still have a video recording of it - It was back when the Thunderfury blade had no texture and the whole blade was just solid black hahaha! I am so hyped for Classic to come out. Got many of my old WoW friends coming back for it its going to be a blast!
