Hi guys! Found this forum through Reddit, seems like the place to be hanging out while waiting for the WoW Classic launch!
I started playing in Vanilla a couple of weeks before the Ahn'Qiraj opening event launched and was hooked almost instantly. I eventually joined a raiding guild and got to do got to do everything part from clearing Naxxramas fully. I also greatly enjoyed The Burning Crusade which I consider the hight of World of Warcraft. In that first expansion I think Blizzard found the perfect balance between hardcore and casual where you could do some semi-high end PvE content (heroics) even if you didn't raid and get decent gear. The different specs of the hybrid classes were also a bit better balanced making druids and paladins more viable tanks for instance.
After TBC I've been playing on and off (with an emphasis on off) with Pandaria and BFA barely getting any playtime at all. What I'm looking forward to the most with Classic is probably the community since that's really what's been lacking in the latest 4-5 expansions. I'm also hoping that TBC eventually will be brought back also since that's my favourite stage of the game, Vanilla coming in as a close second
I can imagine that was a little bit demoralizing! I had a similar experience when TBC released, but luckily I was aware that the expansion was coming.
Hello Guys! Just discovered and joined this forum and i think it’s a piece of art! Thanks for making this! Im a WOW player since 2006 (i was 9 years old) and started playing literally 2 weeks before TBC launched. I remember when i first got the game for christmas sleeping with it that night.
I can’t wait to fully relive the experience that vanilla was, and im sure it’s going to be amazing. I was warlock back then, but this time im choosing rogue! Good to meet you all!
This site is F smooth i've been through many forum in my life but this one is the best i've experienced so far
Hello! I'm Bandos and I got here looking for forums to recruit for my Classic guild. I'm a long-time WoW veteran who has gotten together with other WoW veterans and players who still play today to run a semi-hardcore raiding guild on a Est NA PvP server. If you would like more information pm me!
Hello and Hejsan!
Been lurking these forums for nearly a month and decided to create an account.
My signature says it all.

Portalmaster - Gnome Mage Lvl 19
Shaelur - Dwarf Paladin Lvl 22
Shaelus - Night Elf Druid Lvl 50
Decided to make an account, just to say hello, as I've spent the last few days looking through the forums here :)
I played WoW from release; EU Horde; mained Warrior upto TBC release, then mained Holy Pala until end of WotLK when I stopped playing. Got back into the game just before BFA launch and played Holy Pala and DH for some time in BFA, though it was mainly achievement farming and not solid raiding because I didn't much enjoy the content. My PC stopped working at the end of last year and I haven't been bothered to fix it due to other priorities/money/new gf but 2 irl friends I used to play with in BFA wanted to start afresh in Classic and I'm actually really looking forward to it. Gonna main Feral Druid this time around.
Really pleased this kind of environment exists, was concerned that there weren't that many people out there getting as excited for Classic as me.
Now it's just a case of fixing my PC and waiting until release :)
Hi all! I stumbled across this forum a few days ago and have been lurking/looking around. Decided I should make an account because this place seems great! My hype for Classic is becoming more and more intense the closer we get to release!
Hello all! Found this site yesterday while doing some research on class combinations. I was a fairly hardcore Vanilla/BC player in my college days (cleared through Twin Emps in AQ40), and have subbed off and on since WOTLK, clearing most raids on normal/heroic in a casual guild. Don't love the current direction of retail, and I'm hyped for classic! Still undecided between warrior, rogue, and priest though.
I am a casual player from late vanilla >> BFA, stopped playing a few months ago as the game was doing my head in. Looking forward to classic and intend to drink my body weight in beer while bungling my through to L60, hopefully having a bit of craic along the way.
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!
