The 27t of August, Blizzard is going back to their roots to release World of Warcraft like it was for 15 years ago. Anyone stoked for this/going to play?

@eri123: sadly not. You're gonna have to pay 12 euro a month to play it, which gives you access to both the classic and the retail version of the game.

I have heard locks and warriors are probably best classes to start with. I will probably roll paladin though (ret). Any idea what server you will be on? I'm looking at Pagle.

i don't get it, wouldn't you rather play one of the most recent MMOs/MMORPGs with much better graphics, new mechanics, more engaging combat, etc.?

Ah, that feeling of being constantly broke as you pay for your skills to the point where at times you have to not purchase some skills to pay for others [until you've leveled up gathering enough to start making money on the market or have high characters able to send gold].

That feeling of spending hours walking across the continent to get the stupid mounts... Dear god, the Warlock mount quest.... so.... so tedious.

Graphics & Mechanics is not everything, especially when it comes to an MMORPG. What makes Classic so great is that you had to work for your stuffs, it felt progressive, you had to be social or else you would get nowhere (A lot of quests required you to teamup whereas in retail you can pretty much solo anything outside of raids/dungeons), every class felt more unique with 30-40 spells for each class that you'd unlock as you level, professions were mandatory, PvP was actually fun, Raids & Dungeons were challenging.

Dungeons have been a piece of cake since MoP & The game has been unsocial since wotlk
