not being able to use thunderclap in defensive stance is fucking killing me

so much weird shit about this game

and before you talk shit about how it's outdated, plenty of games had smarter designs when WoW was made

in the WoW glory days I spent my time playing Guild Wars 1 and I have zero regrets about that

Oh yeah, defensive stance. Now i have not heard that name in a long time...

At least you get to drown people by sheeping them in the water in private servers. God tier design.

all private servers are free boo

elysium seems to be the biggest one https://elysium-project.org

it seems to be hosted in the netherlands, i get like 14ms latency :whew

servers hosted in the US were cracked down on by blizzard but servers in EU are safe

Depends on if you consider having your 1x leveled 60 with BWL gear deleted when Blizzard throws a C&D at the server "free".

I really wish Blizzard would just do time locked servers already.

I still have my discs. I assume I'd need to pay for playing time right? If so I'll pass. Been waiting for a f2p WoW...

i grouped up to do relics of wakening which is some hole in the night elf starter area thats a fucking nightmare to do solo and we ran across another group, so we grouped up with them

then we had a 4 player group, running around killing shit, i thought to myself holy shit it feels just like the good old days! :rejoice

the feeling of grouping with people you just met is a completely different feel than with that finder bullshit

not too long after though we split up cuz we needed to get items from the boxes and its one for each, then it disappears and spawns a minute later

think about that

holy fuck, i remember this game getting a 9.5 from gamespot

how do you give it a 9.5 when it has this kind of bullshit... unbelievable, not too long after the group split up, im guessing because we thought it would be faster without having to wait for each other, waiting for the stupid fucking boxes to spawn with the quest item. unbe-fucking-lievable!!

so let me get this straight

its hard to solo

so its like oh well group up noob

but why do i go there in the first place, to do the fucking quest

and the quest isn't designed to take into account multiple people needing the fucking item!!?!?  FUCK OUTTA HERE

overwatch sucks so much its hard to believe it came from WoW people, but now im thinking about it, and it all makes perfect sense :rofl

fucking blizzard gaming... fuck outta here with this bullshyt

3 reasons why vanilla WoW is remembered so fondly:

-Forced grouping and community > this has been 100% destroyed and will never come back thanks to QOL improvements like LFG buttons /cross server play, imho this is what made it an MMO, a breathing living world you played in, now its all anonymous shit
-First MMO experience for most
-Nostalgia

It was pretty technically advanced when it came out. Animations, graphics and physics were very good for a mmo in the early 2000s.

i already played FFXIV and its a pretty shallow game

i mean it's that when people talk about FFXIV it's mostly about player housing, the combat system and dungeons etc are just shallow and you get bored pretty easily with it

all i remember is that it's more relaxing to play than WoW but also more convoluted, confusing, and not particularly satisfying

certainly not worth a monthly fee

High end FFXIV combat is considerably more complicated than WoW has pretty much ever been. There are only a few specs at specific points in time I can think of in WoW that were anything close to what XIV demands.

Mechanics are apples and oranges.

:lol i just dont get the idea that people who play FFXIV aren't enjoying it, lots of bitching about quests last time I read the GAF thread

like there's some quests you gotta do that were tedious... i mean thats one of the reasons I quit :doge

also now that you have another expansion i need to buy that one also to get in the game again... and i cant remember if i got heavensward, so i need to buy that AND get stormblood AND pay a monthly fee

If you want a living, active open world then you should be playing Black Desert Online.

You need an up-to-date PC though.

i decided to ditch tanking and go dps and ive been having more fun that way

the trouble with being a tank in wow is that it's really a dungeon and raid spec, not a questing spec

any dps will do fine with questing, dungeons, and raids

but not tanks

and i guess maybe healers dont do so well with questing im not sure never played healer much, but being a tank while questing really just sucks

i cant remember how it was in FFXIV, i think better
