Been an avid reddit viewer of Classic, Play WOW back in the day '05 EU Aggramar Server, Boys From The Horde, Mained a Undead Rogue raided up to AQ40, had a Shaman Alt in 0.5 too.
Moved to Maining Shaman during tbc owing to feeling under valued on my rogue and the change to 10 Man Kara / 25 Man Raiding, hit our guild pretty hard, moved around alot with a few friends, creating a small 10 man raiding guild on WOTLK which went went. But then hit casual mode with RL etc. only ended coming back for a few months on each Xpan to play the story as I love the Lore even though the writing might be slightly lacking of late since MoP imo.
Defiantly coming back to classic! Struggling to pick a class though; rogue / shaman / Priest / Mage I've narrowed it down to on private servers, but yet to make a decision.
Anyhow! Nice to see a nice old school forum, will start perusing! O/
Stumbled upon this forum site looking for info on the whole "Chose your name before actual release".
Decided to join and see what goes on.
A lil introduction, began playing 2006 but being a lil kiddo and english not being native tongue had a pretty hard time actually questing. I remember asking my parents to translate but I soon got tired of that and pretty much just spent my time killing and being killed by whatever mob i walked into. Literally had no idea of what to do, never played a MMO until WoW, pretty much only Legend of Zelda games before as well as BF2:MC for the PS2 which was a blast.
With my english becomming better and actually understanding whole sentences I started to level up alot quicker. By this time TBC had been release and I did not know that Wotlk was just around the corner, because when I hit lvl 70 and was ecstatic, lich king released mere 12 hours later and yeah, I was a bit slow to level up after that.
Will look through the forum now, take care!
Well, except for jumping on the free version to somewhat re-acclimate myself to the game, I haven't played in 9 years because the game was not fun anymore. I quickly learned on that short little free version, why I left the game. Praise the Lord Blizzard is releasing classic WOW so I can be a noob all over again n a game that is interesting and fun to play.
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.
Ten Storms EU Alliance
Finnigan - Dwarf Hunter Lvl 30
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!
