The Big List of WoW Classic Guides and Resources
Last updated 7th June 2019
Image
This is a comprehensive listing of non-video format resources for WoW Classic players. It includes guides, opinion, tools, spreadsheets, data and other information pages that you may find useful when the game launches. Hopefully this page provides a portal to other community sites outside of Barrens Chat and helps everyone find what they're looking for :smile:

If you would like to add your resource to the list private message me or leave a reply below and I will do so at the soonest opportunity.

Nota bene I have done my best to curate this list of resources by selecting those of high accuracy and reputation. Many guides are however based on anecdotal evidence and private server emulations of Classic meaning that their viability in patch 1.13 could be affected.

This is a great compilation! I see my Master Guide scan in there. I also uploaded the Dungeon Companion scan on my Archive.org account. You can see my name under the Master Guide page. I also uploaded the GIMP file for my detailed map on there if anyone wants to improve upon my map. I want someone to make it better honestly.

Inaccurate on the whole with a lot of private server-only stuff like front stabbing for rogues etc. I’ve had a lot of people asking me to take them down.

Just read through this list and noticed that the "PvP Consumables list" is listed under "PvE General". Intended or typo? :)

Frontstabbing isn't a private server thing. Please stop saying this before looking into it. It had always been possible. It takes a single google search to find sauce, but here is the first
https://www.wowhead.com/spell=53/backstab#comments Ohera commented on this. I promise I did this from Vanilla all the way up until Cataclysm (on 20-30 ms latency), after which it might have still worked, but I never tried.
I'm not trying to flex and act like a smartass or anything, I just want the truth to be out there: it was never a bug, it was somewhat of an exploit, clever usage of game mechanics, it was never a latency issue or a private server thing.

Hey Pork,

Thanks for the input. I don’t have time to verify, curate and compile everything here with 100% accuracy so I’m willing to believe the overwhelming reports from other users that it isn’t possible to fronstab in Classic rather than your anecdotal evidence.

That said - if you can provide a source from say Classic beta then I’d be very willing to reconsider reinstating those guides and thank you for bringing this to my attention :smile:

It is not possible to pull off in the Classic beta. But I promise you, it was very much so in retail. Sadly, there's no evidence other than the people who used to do it, since there is no way to provide you with evidence that it was possible in Classic, BC, WotLK and Cata. Those games don't exist anymore. I can only appeal to the few people who found out about it, and our past experiences with wallhuggers, especially when shadowstep was introduced. You would be ported on top of the target, and be at the exact same x/y/z coords as the opponent, you would be able to use backstab, ambush and garrote, even when facing the opposite direction of your target, effectively ''frontstabbing''. This is just how hitboxes used to work: you and your target could be facing each other, be able to attack each other, but be registered as behind each other. Somehow, ''target being in front of you'' and ''you being behind the target'' are not mutually exclusive (!), again, afaik, since 2006 till 2012.

I know I am speaking in the face of many, but I am right. I am not accusing anyone of ignorance, and I understand few will believe me, but I did this, and there is no reason for me to lie. It was a very awkward trick and required you to spazz out in the hitbox while spamming backstab, hence it wasn't a thing you'd find out easily (I barely grasp why I did it in the first place, I was a bit bored leveling sometimes), but easy once you got the hang of it.

Alright well in that case we’ll have to test your findings when Classic releases to see if works on the live version.
