There's a lot of discussion on the main forums about how we will have nothing to do after we reach the level cap and gear up (despite how much work that entailed in vanilla), and even how we should "progress" into TBC or Wrath after classic. Honestly, I think this quote sums up how I feel about it nicely:

"It is good to have an end to journey towards; but it is the journey that matters, in the end." -Ursula K. Le Guin
People have really lost sight of what made vanilla so magical. Is there a grind? Yes. Do you have to struggle to achieve even five levels? Yes. Did gear take a lot of time and effort? You betcha. But that is what made everything so rewarding. We don't need to be endlessly chasing the next dungeon, and I doubt we will get bored with classic.

I get why people are excited and talking about the possibility of TBC and Wrath servers, but I’m not that interested to be honest. Classic alone will scratch the itch for me. Let’s see how this game comes out first of all!

I like the idea of being able to pick up classic again in the future, so I too would like classic to remain classic. However, if Blizzard decides to have a few "progression servers" that move into TBC and Wrath I wouldn't be opposed. As long as classic remains intact I will be happy.

Not gonna lie, I'd probably play both. Keep Classic for WPvP and do TBC for raiding.

Thing about WoW is that there's plenty of stuff to do. If you can count leveling a class to 60, leveling some professions to max, raiding all tiers and doing some PvP a complete experience of Classic then you just have to re-roll and see a different experience, and there's plenty of classes to go by. Once you get tired of that, you can try the other faction as well.

Onwards, sons of perdition!

I'm with you there.
Actually, when I think about it my nostalgia lies TBC aswell... Not for WotLK (or higher) though.. No one knows why :P

@Cram I started playing in TBC, I guess that's why. And I was a tard for most of it but got to see upwards to BT because I was a healer. For me it would be an awesome opportunity to go back amd accomplish what I dreamed of doing as a kid and mastering that content. Staying away from private servers because I know how scummy GMs can be like and because TBC takes soooo much more investment once you reach max level with the rep grind.

In a big way you've still experienced classic through leveling. As we all know, leveling is a really big part of classic. In TBC it still was a classic experience. After TBC they slowly took that away with the integrated quest helper (end of TBC?), heilrooms (probably some patches too).
So even though you say you started in TBC, for me you kinda played Classic too :)
