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. :biggrin:

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!

Hi guys, I am Ivan, from Serbia. I played WoW from 2004 up to the Cata. Once Deathwing destroyed my beautiful world, I quit :)

Hey people,

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.


Cheers,
Comprido

Hi people!

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.

Yep, that sums it up nicely :roll:

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...

Hey everyone! Super hyped to get ganked by ally and pwned by mobs on my quest to get a holy/disc priest to 60!

Stumbled upon this place via Facebook, seems like a good find!

Bring on the grind! Bring on the wipes! Bring on the corpse runs! Bring in the lack of bag space and the shortage of gold! Bring on the super slow movement speed! Bring on the nostalgia!

15 years ago I thought we'd be playing true to life graphics VR with sensory implants, but no. Here we are, still waiting for someone to make a better MMO than Blizz did back in 2004.

I'm gonna be setting up a guild in honour of my guild from back in the day! I'll throw up a post in the relevant section!

FOR THE HORDE!

Hello Barrens Chat.

I will be playing Classic this time around with a new group of friends and it's safe to say that I'm very excited.

I just have one small (actually huge) problem... They all unanimously want to roll Alliance.

I've always been FOR THE HORDE!

So my question is:
Do I roll horde and gank them on repeat or find a new group of friends?
What do?

> friends
> not playing the same faction

I don't understand how these two work. I never was friends with anyone who played Alliance. We didn't fight or anything, it was just an "oh, okay" and we never talked about WoW again. Same thing with chicks, I once found a chick who was playing on a good server, was doing Mythic boosts and everything but when she told me she only played Alliance on that PvE server I was cockblocked and we stopped talking.

It's not faction pride or anything, it's more about the fact that if it's a big part of our lives but we can never play together unless one of us makes a huge compromise then it's not worth starting and you're better off going with someone who isn't involved with it at all.

Play Horde, you'll make new friends. I mean, it's not like you *should* be talking about WoW stuff when you're out irl anyway, and online friends are just as good as real friends when you're gaming, you know?

That sounds kinda slave-ish tbh :biggrin:

@Nymis You don't rly have any real reason not to like them. It seems purely emotional that you cannot stand the other faction. You are slave to your emotions :mrgreen:
