Vanilla WoW - 46 Things To Expect If You Never Played Classic World of Warcraft - MMORPG Discussion

  • In this video Vress lists some of the things you’re going to see when you play the official World of Warcraft vanilla servers that have been announced by Blizzard. This video is aimed at those who never played classic WoW back in the day, but I’m sure that it will give you vanilla WoW veterans a nice hit of nostalgia too. Things have changed a lot in World of Warcraft since the legacy days, and I think some of you may be surprised to realise by just how much!

    I’m a big fan of vanilla World of Warcraft and that it’s probably my favourite game of all time. I plan to cover vanilla WoW a lot both in the run up to the official legacy server launch and when the content is live. However, I’m not going to pull punches just because of how much I love the game, so please don’t get all up in arms when I talk about the flaws of vanilla WoW as well as it’s awesomeness!

    Why do so few peeps mention the patience required , and the joy of taming a truely unique pet when you were running a hunter alt? ... that may very well run off and desert you if you did not care for it.

    More adds in vanilla and, a little of modern, will be Epic one!

    I started in BC about half way through, I'm playing vanilla now. It is nothing like the game became later. I haven't even downloaded the new expac, I've decided to pass on it. Maybe later.

    Stop comparing it to later versions of WoW if you are addressing it to new players. It doesnt give a good impression, and sort of just acts as a way of saying its mediocre in comparison. It doesnt suit the game experience.

    My friend groups playing alliance so I'll probably roll a druid or hunter because druids are always fun af and I have strong nostalgia with the old hunter melee abilities(lowkey just going to spec and gear for melee hunter because I can thats why)

    but my first character in tbc was a human warlock, so I'll probably make an alt/maybe main on another server that will be an undead warlock with the same name. That character's been barber shopped, race changed, all sorts of things on live, so it'll be a cool rp thing to bring him back from the dead so to speak.

    And also I always loved the forsaken and was kinda a horde guy even though my friends always played alliance.
