Hey Dread! Welcome to the site and thanks for your very kind words :smile:

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!

Hey all,

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!

Hi all,

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!

Stay cool!

Hello there,

Interested in Classic since quite a while, not sure how I managed to not find this Forum sooner. :)

I'm from Switzerland but living in Singapore & Japan, currently back and forth between them. We (my wife, kids, myself) are moving back to Europe in 2020, hence I'm rolling on an EU Server at launch! 200-300ms is very playable from Private Server experience, but looking forward to 20, 30, 50ms or whatever it will be as well! ;)

Played Vanilla wow since launch, changed Server 2 times - not because of reputation haha, but to find out the right type.. started with PvP, then moved to RP and eventually settled on a PvE Server. Had my first lv60 (Priest) on the RP Server but eventually found my home with my second lv60 - Undead Warlock - on the German speaking Sen'Jin Server. Raided the vanilla content there and rocked through BC until Black Temple. Never seen Naxxramas however.

This time around planning to roll an an English speaking Server, taking it more casual 10-20h a week once things have settled after the initial launch phase. I'm a bit indecisive still on my class (Priest, Shaman, Hunter or Warlock) as well as if I should roll on an PvE or PvP Server. Will make up my mind in the last 6 weeks, also depending if I might come across a suitable Guild beforehand or not.

For the Horde!

Way late to the party but super happy I found this site. Started playing in TBC, have played every xpac since vanilla. I only recently discovered pservers or I probably would have quit retail ages ago. PVP is the only aspect I really care about, by I thoroughly enjoy trying to experience as many aspects of the game as possible.

Nothing wrong with that! I played both in Vanilla and loved both!
Enjoy Ironforge because nothing beats it!
I so wish I was a dwarf again and can enter that place with pride!

Yeah you’re right, Ironforge is amazing! Dwarf is of course the only obvious alternative for an Alliance race as well!

Hi there, I am Scaredy. I played a Human Warrior Called Opeth in the guild ReDeYe on Runetotem EU back in Vanilla. I've played on and off since then but never enjoyed the game quite like i did back then. I am looking forward to returning to Vanilla and playing with a real understanding of the game. I AM SO EXCITED!

Hello, peoples. I'm Zhohan. I was a young lad during vanilla and shared an account with my brother on Gul'dan (US). I played a gnome warlock and leveled lots of alts from 2006-2008. I made my own account in early Cata but by that time, the game lost its magic. I've played every WoW expansion and around 2012 I gained an interest in RP. I've spent the past 7 years on RP realms and reading the WoW novels. Became a lore junkie.
In 2015, I was lucky enough to lookup vanilla private servers and I found Nostalrius. I raided with <Questionable Talent> (later <HANDLE IT>) as we progressed through the raids until we disbanded at 7/9 in AQ40. Can't wait for Classic!

hi, I played late vanilla (naxx was out) thru mid TBC. Only did pvp back then, no level cap, 19 thru 49 brackets.

couple spins on pservers years later to look at the dungeons and play the different classes in non-pvp situations. Stopped at BRD both times, once because I quit playing and once because we got news about classic. So vanilla endgame 5mans will be new to me, looking forward to seeing them. Lots of respect for the art team back then and the lore has charm. I always thought we'd get a video game closer to old skool d&d for pve, but all these years and WoW's about as close as it ever got for co-op multiplayer. So I'll give raiding a chance.

my main hope is that twink pvp gets big enough for insta-queues again, I liked it a lot more than mobas for solo queue. I think gear broke the game for pvp at level cap, but that impression was from naxx era. I'm sort of interested to see how pvp plays with earlier gear.

Hello to everyone :)

I'm 29 years old, living in Belarus all my life. Started playing WoW in Vanilla around a year after official release (2005-2006). Sadly, at that time I wasn't able to play on official servers, so couldn't enjoy the game how it supposed to be played. But I always liked Classic more than any other WoW patch and really want to finally experience it properly when official servers will be released.

Played on official servers late WOTLK - Cataclysm, quit after 4 months in Pandaria. Mainly on Russian realm called Пиратская бухта.

Also, in Vanilla I started playing on Alliance side and since Burning Crusade I rerolled Horde and played only that fraction for an entire time in WoW, up to pandas, as shaman. I have a dream to level up shaman as my main on Horde side when Classic comes out so I can call myself a true Horde player in every patch! Lok'Tar Ogar!

Hello everyone!

I started playing WoW a few months before the start of the BC.
Although I have bought all the expansions, from MOP I've been playing less, to the point that in the case of BFA just got my main character to 120 and left him, quite disappointed with an expansion that I consider close to disaster.

I look forward to Classic release. It was the game mode which I really liked. The remodeling of Azeroth with Cataclysm was for me something like when you're a kid and get changed of school, or when you move into a house that you just don't like. It was a feeling that something had changed forever, and not for the better.

I discovered this page through the US forums few months ago and I was pleasantly surprised.
Love the design, close to the classics rpgs, quality contents and the environment, breathes enthusiasm and love for the game that we expect. Congratulations.

Greetings from Spain :)

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
