Total n00b here. I swore up and down for years when WOW first launched that I would never play this game. ...and then I did. When classic launched this year, I thought I'd give it a try. Now... I'm hooked.
I'm really digging the hell out of some classic. I have actually given retail a shot and I have to say that I just can't get behind it. When I've got a level 11 toon and I can set my auto-attack and then literally take my hands off the controls and put them up behind my head - with no fear of dying... Just... No. I'm not sure if it gets harder later on in the game, but if that's any indication of things to come, I can't in good conscience call that a "game".
I know I'm ripping on retail right out of the gate, something that I hear fans of classic often do, but I do get that retail wouldn't be a thing if it didn't work for those folks who are in to that kind of thing. Each to their own.
I love that classic makes you work for it. That it doesn't hand you everything. It's my personal preference, of course, but I like the feeling of accomplishment and a job well done - even if I had to die 20 times to do it.
I also have no idea why I'm blathering on like this. I'm not good at introducing myself. I never know what to say.
Hello all! Long time player, since 2005. I've played the game steadily since then. While I do still enjoy the retail game, I cannot lie when I say Classic scratches that nostalgia itch something fierce. There's a great many mechanics I miss from the old days, so I'm really happy to have the chance to experience them again. Also, there's so much I miss from pre-Cataclysm.
I pretty much enjoy both versions of the game as completely separate things now. Retail when I just wanna go blow stuff up on my ridiculous number of alts, and Classic when I crave the slow and steady pace and having to put in the effort to earn things.
Hope to see you guys in-game sometime! :)
Hey! I was doing a google search and I stumbled upon this website! Fetid of Westfall. Undead warlock. Truth be told, I never played Vanilla or Burning Crusade. I've been playing kinda on and off since Wrath. I've had a solid experience with classic so far and I can't wait to get to 60 (41 right now) Glad to be here!
Hello Barrens! I'm Grevmak, playing a Troll Warrior on Everlook, and love myself some forums.
Been playing WoW since vanilla, but I was a wee lad back then, thus I didn't see the endgame until the very end of tbc. Now I'm leading a chill semi hardcore guild and enjoy my time in Azeroth a lot.
I love playing and theorycrafting warrior, reading up on every new weird interaction and strategy while optimizing my gameplay but also enjoy leveling alts on calm days.
Hope to write and read some more on here very soon. See ya!
Hey! I'm Linux, or Lïnux in game, Dwarf Warrior on Sulfuras-NA. Looking to become more invested in the Classic community.
Very interested in talking to other players and learning from their experiences. Always interested in theory crafting, advice, strategies, resources and so on.
Hope to get to know y'all better real soon.
Gurgel here. Human Paladin on Mograine EU. Just started lvling.
Played WoW since Late Vanilla/ Early TBC and one of my first toons was a Human Retribution Paladin.
I had no clue what I was doing and I had no idea Retribution Paladin wasn't really viable.
But I didn't play for minmaxing back in the day and honestly minmaxing classic seems like such a waste. All though I know so much more about the game today I will try and play the game like it is supposed to be played. I will take it slow. Enjoy the zones, the quests and the dungeons. Make friends and try to slay the Horde players I come across.
I will be Retribution all the way. I love the idea of a Templar/Crusader fighting with Greatswords and Battle-Hammers using Holy magic to protect what is good and inflict damage upon foes. Is it the greatest dmgdealing class? Far from it. Will raiding guilds take me in? We'll see. I'm just here to have a grand old time, relive som nostalgia from childhood/teenage years and hopefully make some new friends.
See you guys in Azeroth :-)
Hi everyone! I'm excited to properly get into Classic WoW as I now have free time in my life to do so.
I was also wondering what the rules were on the forum for being a content creator, I don't want to post my content anywhere where it wouldn't be desired or seem like I'm just shilling my channel, if any mods can let me know the rules on that or what have you it would be much appreciated!
I may also be an altoholic but I'm trying to curb that habit with my Orc Warrior.
Hey welcome to BC A link in your signature and regular posting is the best way to get exposure here without stepping on people’s toes.
Hello guys! A bit neurotic, Slav and trying to be wholesome - looking forward to make ambitious crossover of Blizzard and IRL universes, and make both of them better in the process!
I started playing WoW back in 2005 and finished the easiest raids MC, Onyxia, ZG and AQ20 with my healer paladin. Moved on to TBC and did all the raids up to BT as a hunter. Took a longer break before WotLK which I played casually and when Cataclysm came out, I played it for one month and decided to quit WoW altogether as I felt the game had lost that spirit it once had.
When I first read about Classic about a year ago, I was excited to play the game once again. I had everything planned out for the launch - what main I would play and its appearance, its leveling spec, what weapons to get during leveling, which professions to pick and so on. Well, then life happened. I have been busy with other things since launch and did not find the time to play Classic.
However, when I was on sick leave for couple of days from work this week, I came up with a feverish, brilliant idea: beg a game master to grant me couple of days free game time and install Classic. With everything set up, I rolled a troll warrior on Zandalar Tribe EU and played a couple of days.
The leveling experience to lvl 24 was a sweet trip down the memory lane and it was even better than I remembered. Especially the community and social aspect is much stronger than I remembered: higher level players were helping me to kill Fizzle "Pain-in-the-Ass" Darkstorm near Orgrimmar and I found leveling company in Barrens and we finished most of the level 18-21 quests there in a couple of hours. It was just so fun to play that game once again and now I am trying to figure out how to come up with some free time in the evenings and level to 60. After playing the game for a few days and watching some Youtube videos about Classic raiding, I couldn't help to notice that players in Classic seem to be much more goal-oriented than back in Vanilla both in leveling and raiding. But I guess that is what happens over time.
Anyway, it's nice to be back playing Classic. Now that I found my way to this forum, I will try to drop a few posts every now and then!
Used to be super into WoW up until WoD, took a very long break played came back for Legion for a bit and then BFA came out, got to max and was immediately disappointed. Was extremely happy to hear Classic was coming out so I could start fresh. Had some trouble getting back into it but now I'm currently leveling a Undead Warlock, first for both and its a huge refreshing change from a Troll Shaman.
I hope to have a bunch of new amazing memories and yes I'm aware nothing will compare to the first time I first put in the disk to download World of Warcraft for the first time.
Hope to see other many lovely levelers out in my adventures on US-Whitemane!
Damn right it won't be but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the new ones and cherish the old ones!

Hello guys! I've signed up here a while ago. Maybe in august. But didn't take a time to intriduce.
Well, I'm Syd and I'm a rogue on Noggenfogger EU. Maybe some of you lads also play there? If yes, I'm up to fun like wpvp, gank, grief and all this dirty rogue staff^^
Hey! I'm cooped up inside because of El Coronavirus and figured this was the perfect opportunity to guiltlessly pour some hours into this ineffably magical game that so captivated me when I was a kid and Bush was president.
I think of myself as a Horde guy but I just leveled a Human Paladin up to 15 and I've been having fun. I met lots of kind and friendly people in Westfall today; a few hours ago, I sat with a group of three on the coast under the rays of the lighthouse and we talked about joblessness and money and our attempts to help others in crisis. A useful release valve after hours of pretending to not think about corona.
In my real life I'm an actor and writer with a special interest in Shakespeare and other renaissance artists. I was going to direct my new adaptation of The Witch of Edmonton this May until the shit hit the fan.
I was thinking I might get into RPing as a way of engaging both my acting and writing muscles during my unemployment and newly indoorsy life, and I still like the idea, but it's also been nice to just run around and chat with people. If I can keep my head above water with money and can keep subscribing maybe I'll get back on that idea soon enough.
When I was a teenager I played lots of WoW and wrote lots of message board posts, habits from which I walked away as I got older, but it looks like I'm returning to them now. Time is recursive! Hope you didn't find this message too long. See you around!
