Long, chaotic vanila AV battles were my favorite part of the game.  If that's an option, I'd play.  2 hour battles in which Lok and Ivus are summoned?  I'm in.


I would subscribe for this.
Ditto.  Original AV was probably one of my most favorite things ever.

And I'll be there too, ignoring the battle and working on my fishing.

or skinning.  Pretty sure I spent a good long time in there skinning wolves on my mage, for whatever reason.

Because it was a super efficient means to get to 300 skinning if one of your toons got Finkle's Skinner off The Beast in UBRS, because you were now the Raid Skinner for skinning Onyxia's scales.  (at least that's how it went for me).

I'll definitely be snookered back for this until reality interferes.

The one thing I'll never understand a Vanilla purist defending is the fucked itemization of everything. You could leave in the jank, pidgeonhole talent trees, shit like tab-target-sunder spam for tanking, etc.

But why would you want like 95% of the gear to be garbage with a random smattering of stats? I'd say let Blizz redo set bonuses from Tier 0 and up and make all the loot not suck complete shit.

Because they remember the one time they got one piece of gear that was good and they were better than everyone else. They looked at it all day long in town with the character portait open. And this time, THIS TIME, they will do better and have a thunderfury and everyone will like them now.

Set gear isn't the only gear in the game.

Looks like I was right: "Classic" experience will start with patch 1.12 (Drums of War) :

Have we any idea what the computer specifications will be? I'm hoping my wife can play on her very-much-non-gaming laptop.

This post made me realize the game will be 14 years old in November. That's insane how long it's been going.

Whatís even more insane is that considering how successful it was, Blizzard hasnít made another, newer MMO in that 14 years.

I'd have to dig through emails but I feel like they've scrapped one if not two. Hell maybe three.

They scrapped Titan to make Overwatch, which seems to have been the right decision.

They will almost certainly make a WoW 2 when they feel they have well squeezed the last bit of blood from the stone.

Sure, but its just impressive they managed to fuck up so many potential MMO projects over the years when you'd think making another successful monthly subscription game to replace their massive cash cow would be priority number 1.

Mind you, the face of MMO's has changed drastically since WoW was originally introduced, and I don't expect them to try and make another traditional MMO per say.  But as WoW has fallen off, they really have to be missing that guaranteed monthly subscription income.
