congratz @teebling ! Did you get your invitation randomly or did you get it as a content creator (as owner of barrens.chat) ?

i was very interested about getting one for my website (checking values etc..) and making an addon version, but i don't know if blizzard would be ok to give me one, and i don't even know how to contact them properly

Not sure man, I was in touch with them a month ago and they asked for my battle tag so I guess because of the site.

Will try and hop on for a bit later on and answer your questions about weather, reputation etc.

There has been some footage on youtube showing quest arrows on the minimap.
Could you please confirm if they are in the game indeed?
I wish they would keep it like in Vanilla - meaning no quest arrows.

What’s your graphics card (or integrated?) on your laptop and how high can you turn up the graphics? Possibly include CPU too, please.

Can confirm, the download is about 8GB. Uncompressed it is 8.35GB. Mac OS X Mojave.

I'm playing on a SHIT Macbook Air at the moment from 2015 which doesn't even have dedicated graphics. It's on a 1.6GHz i5 with Intel HD 5000 integrated graphics. The system 'recommends' a setting of '3' for me, which I was actually pleasantly surprised by (thought I'd have to run it on baaaare minimum). No anti-aliasing of course but it's very smooth - I have the 'classic' graphics selected so it looks identical to vanilla screenshots I've seen for comparison, and doesn't require a great deal of power as a result. You can run classic very nicely on anything mate, is my conclusion.

I read this post yesterday at work and I must have not been reading very closely because I don’t remember that at all! :oops:

I suppose you can’t do the increased ground clutter, but I keep telling myself I don’t need a new computer and I don’t need it.

I have a WoW account but its not subscribed. I am not paying for a subscription.

I’m the deeloper of this here site so I think that’s why I got an invite - for being a classic ‘influencer’ or whatever you call massive nerds these days :smile:

Hey Teebs, grats on beta! One thing I would like you to take a look at is whether LookingForGroup is a global channel, global but restricted to main cities, or local to main cities.

Cheers!

A couple things for me:
Are there unarmored albino raptors that can be attained from the troll mount vendor? This will change my method for leveling significantly.
Have you attempted any wall-hopping or other exploitable terrain mechanics? Do they work like on vanilla or have they been corrected?
Thanks!

Our time will come.

Blizzard already announced that the old, unarmored mounts will not exist in Classic.

Doh! I just found it on another post. That is a bummer for sure but at least now I won't be spending my time farming rep at a low level. I even considered rolling a Troll when I really want to go undead this time. Crisis averted I suppose.

Yeah, I believe they said they don't want to force any playstyle (i.e. rushing to 60 to get the mount in time) on players but encourage everyone to play the way they want.

I was curious to know this. They must have a predefined list of "influencer"-type people that they invite regardless of subscription. But they're telling everyone else for a 'chance' to get in they must be subscribed... Nice way to make a ton of money without having to do anything I guess. :lol: I was wondering if all these people getting in today in the 2nd wave were subscribed, but I am guessing not.

In adition to the weather system i’m interested in seeing how nights compare to retail, as I’ve seen it mentioned often over the years that nights used to be darker way back then?

I'm not sure how much you've played or what class, but when I was watching some livestream the mana regen looked reallyy fast and the streamer mentioned it a few times. He was playing an undead priest and he probably only drank like 2 or 3 times from 1 - 10 even though he constantly used it all. It also looked easier to kill mobs than I've experienced in private servers, but then again some others especially rogues seemed to be cutting it pretty close at lower levels. I've never played priest in a vanilla setting so idk how easy or hard it is to fight with them, but that mana regen looked too fast.

How much reputation are you getting per quest if you don't mind me asking?

If you could give me a sample of about 4-5 quests that'd be swell.
Yes, me too! I'd like to have a comparison for private. If we could get the xp/rep rewards from the first batch of quests that would be great. Maybe a batch of 5 or so at each 10 level increment just to see how it compares to values on private.

SO PUMPED FOR YOU!!!! Tell us everything!!! I've heard some rumblings that the starting zones are actually showing A LOT more mob spawns than what was available on private... Are you seeing more mob density in early zones? If so this could result in much easier leveling on launch day!
This is kind of difficult to gauge, especially in comparison to pservers. Light's hope for example every starting zone was PACKED with players, and dynamic respawning was also in operation, so I really don't have a baseline to work off.

I saw about a dozen different people in my run through Valley of Trials today. There were enough mobs everywhere and going through the gave to the burning blade medallion guy was fine - nothing spawning behind me as I moved through it.

Check to see if the auto shot is the same as vanilla, if so gunna be painful to get use to the attack speeds
also if the mana regen is supposedly still bad at early levels ?
Hey Dragonoon, it seems pretty similar to what I've experienced on LH. I get about 3 auto shots in from max range before a melee unit reaches me and I have to start swinging. This is without kiting in any form.

Ey grats @teebling ! Enjoy.

I'm hearing that it's about 30% slower to level in classic compared to private servers. Would you mind sharing your finds regarding this?
Feels about the same to be honest.

Good to see someone getting a invite that actually deserves it!

As for things to check out, like Kalo said, check if the weather system is there and also, is the combat text vanilla like? When you crit, do the damage number appear bigger?
Yeah if you crit, the text is slightly larger. Not massively though.

Not sure what you mean... Durotar Localdefense was all I was seeing:

That's all I can do tonight, no time left! Don't worry if I haven't answered a question of yours yet - got them all written down on a list so I'll try to get to them eventually when the circumstances allow.

Definitely a bug with the cursor icons which are washed out - looks like a 50% brightness filter with no contrast. Comes and goes. Font smoothing is pretty bad without anti-aliasing on for the entire rest of the game too. Reported both.

Also everything loads so quick when you log in - no idea why this is. Reduced amount of assets to be loaded for the UI? I'm on about 120ms ping because I imagine the servers are located in the US and I'm in the UK.

I leveled a priest in TBC, probably doesn’t compare 100% but from what I remember, having to drink to regain mana only started coming up starting from 10-20. Post 20 I dimly recall starting to not even be able to finish single mobs with a full mana bar, making up for the difference by blasting away with wands.
