Hey all, I was wondering what you were doing to prep for TBC? I've got a list of things myself, such as farming the Classic mats for JC that I can, profession prep, etc. I am stuck between choosing an alt to lvl for TBC as well, so I was also wondering what classes you guys look forward to playing in TBC, maybe I can draw some inspiration from that to pick the next alt to lvl in preparation.

Thanks all,
-Amyrildora

I'm still holding off for an official announcement for TBC, along with the official plan on how to get there. I think by now we all assume that TBC is coming as a foregone conclusion, but I'm not going to sink time into preparing mats for it until (a) it's officially announced and (b) we officially get to transfer or copy our characters over vs only getting a F R E S H set of new servers. I think the odds are good that both will happen, but I'll hold off on any serious prep until then.

As far as classes go, I'm pretty set on my classic characters. My main is a feral raid tank, and I know they get extra thicc in TBC. The other character I raid with is my fury warrior. I know DPS warriors fall off in TBC, but I'm not changing it up. I like the RPG aspect of the game and I like my characters and want to play them through the outlands if we get there. I'm not going to abandon my lil gnome warrior just because the DPS won't be as good as it is now vs the other classes.

I bet there will be fresh servers for TBC but it'd be insane if they forced people to all do fresh. The question is what will they do to the economy to adjust for what some have done during classic? Maybe nothing, maybe a cap. I can't say but hopefully they do something so the economy isn't broken day 1 of the expansion.

We can't be sure for now, you'll have to wait till Blizzcon for solid intel.

That said I doubt they just patch and leave everything as it is - as with realms transfers / copys they have a good tool to consolidate the playerbase while restricting some economic advantages that would drive away new players or paying subs - we have a guildmate with 150k gold for example...

If anything, they can lean on the hardcore fans playing it anyway - even set back to 0. For Blizzard, FRESH is definitly on the table.

How do you prevent people from bringing 150k gold with them? I'll just make 5 accounts, spread my resources across all five of them, move to TBC, and consolidate the resources back into one account when I'm there and cancel the extra accounts.

I don't think it's realistic to try to put a cap in place on what items or gold can be brought over. I'd find a way around it.

I dont think they should prevent anything.
They didnt prevent people with high amounts of gold back then...

They should do it like they did it back then, deploy the pre tbc patch to existing classic vanilla servers so people can get ready for TBC on the server they are on now. And if you dont want to continue the journey, have classic vanilla servers you can transfer to or copy your charcter over but you have until TBC launches to make a decision. (Or force people to go to TBC and after wrath, start it all over again...idk)

Yes, and I pay 5 subscriptions for at least one month for that, plus transfer fees maybe. Also, if the gold cap is based on character level, like only level 60 can transfer up to 5k people without alot of alts need help.

You are right that people will find a way, but its not like blizzard can't abuse it for some easy cash. And the statement that they tried to regulate.

I already do have three accounts, so if Blizzard did try to limit how much gold/mats can be taken into a TBC server I'm already ahead of most people.

Yup. There are even a few items you can stock pile right now to be sold for nearly the same amount of gold later.

If they dont put any cap, everyone and their grandma will have epic flying on day 1-2. Im hoping for a few fresh tbc realms and start fresh without a broken economy, might be a better way to get people together on the same realm who got spread out due to the crappy launch of classic also :)

You still have to get to level 70 before you get flying. I'm sure they won't have flying unlocked for 60s initially. But I'm sure many will be able to afford it.

Well thats obvious, but it wont take a lot of people more than 1 day to reach 70 so yeah, and then epic flying for everyone. Boring ass hell imo. Heres hoping for a few fresh with no transfer options for x amount of time :)

If you mean 24 hours /played maybe. From everyone I've heard who has done some TBC prep, they were all surprised how long it actually took to get to 70 so I'm guessing there's a general incorrect memory of what the TBC leveling process will be like. Regardless it's ok if people get flying quickly. It's still going to act as the gold sink it was designed for. Perhaps it'd be better if it was more expensive but like with Classic I'm sure TBC will pretty much be /nochanges.

Yeah which will suck ass, since we will have nerfed content and so many raids available from the start. I think you underestimate how much gold people have also, if you think inflation is bad now, wait til it ruins the tbc market. Heres hoping for a few fresh realms for a chance to a "reset" the insanity.

I sure do hope we are getting Heroic keys at revered and (yeah I know this was different on TBC :D) 3 months wait until T5 is opened. Give people the time to enjoy Heroics and T4...

I'm currently watching some older content mixed with new content on how TBC was and investing some time into a PServer. Only to learn on how TBC was played/balanced. Once TBC hits, I'll be doing a FRESH roll. Not too sure if Horde or Alliance. Probably BELF Paladin even though Draenei are amazing toons to play just on lore itself.
