im not sure but im thinking if you're in the US you'll be able to play easier than in EU as the queues might not be there and it wont be as crowded

could be wrong tho, i dont doubt plenty of US players will be there

also because its an EU server you might be playing in nighttime if you're in the US

Chased this dragon a few times now. Kronos is pretty well known at this point, but Vanilla is a long grind and losing your shit on a C&D, host pulling the plug or somebody running out of money sucks. I’ll be there for Classic day one as long as it isn’t some “new and improved” version.

BC private servers on the other hand...

I'm trying a TBC server.

The trouble I have with vanilla is that while it's nice to have Azeroth as the only world, the endgame doesn't appeal to me. I mean what is there? I've never done vanilla raids but I don't think people like them.

Whereas TBC has some interesting raids. Also never done them, but in retail as level 90 I went through some vanilla and TBC raids for achievements and the vanilla shit seemed pretty barebones while the TBC raids seemed vastly more interesting.

But Outland is a hellhole, so I'm not sure what to do.

In any case, I can just play a bit of both. I'm level 26 on vanilla, so I'll just get rested exp there while I try out the TBC server.

Also the TBC client seems more refined. My GPU acts up with the vanilla client but it's smooth sailing with TBC.

Vanilla raids mostly suck

UBRS/LBRS: not really a raid
ZG: Trolls so already wack. Also very easy.
BWL: Actually interesting mechanics, good story, but farming it for Elementium forever means I can't stand to even think about it
MC: legit the worst raid of all time. Patrolling bosses, long as shit, annoying attunement, ugly af
Ony: One boss, fun but kinda meh for loot. Neat story stuff for Alliance though.
AQ: Fun bosses, you get a bug mount, overall  both 20 and 40 are pretty good
Naxx: If you liked it in LK you'll like it in Vanilla. Pretty much the same but much more punishing. Best raid until Uld imo.

why the fuck would anyone play vanilla :kobeyuck i'd think maybe it's the endgame but endgame seems better too?

early levels seem less grindy as well

Other than AQ and maybe Naxx (but most people never even touched Naxx), there's nothing in Vanilla that is better than BC imo. Having all the classes available for each faction is great, new races are cool, story stuff is better, dungeons are a mix...some are stupidly hard for no reason, raids are definitely better as a whole in BC.

i'm gonna laugh if blizzard launches classic with the fuckery of vanilla and none of TBC's refinements

the only problem i have so far is TBC servers don't seem to be quite as good and i think the one im playing on is the only good one but its kinda low pop, im level 17 and have yet to group with someone :fbm

dungeon queues are wotlk, cross server shit is cataclysm AFAIK :doge

TBC is basically like vanilla, except better in seemingly every way

jewelcrafting is also nice... more loot choices of necklace, rings

Finder was patched at Wotlk, was great before it.  :( Reminds me of how fun Death Knights were back then, op shit aside, they had some pretty awesome mechanics relative to their time and other classes.

if blizzard does a tbc classic server i might get on that... but vanilla... no thx

iirc tbc made veins respawn based on how quickly they were mined. if a vein is mined immediately it will respawn much faster than one that sits around for a while before being mined.

there's a new server coming up that's basically WotLK client (with all the refinements over vanilla client) but is capped at 60, vanilla content only, essentially emulates vanilla

that could be really interesting

Yeah I don't think anyone reads this thread but... :doge

I've been bouncing around on some private servers lately.

Trying to figure out which I prefer, vanilla, TBC or Wotlk.

It's gotta be TBC. TBC beats the shit out of vanilla, and I think edges out Wotlk as well.

The trouble with Wotlk is that it starts to turn into a casual game at that point. Achievements, Dungeon Finder, a bunch of other random shit.

Wotlk is probably when the combat system started to get more fun, more hectic, more active. I think I do prefer that.

But everything else seems to take a step back, IMO. So Wotlk has combat, TBC has everything else. TBC is just more nuanced.

Unfortunately there don't seem to be any good TBC servers. So that sucks.

New hyped vanilla server launched yesterday, and I couldn't resist trying it out. But vanilla really does suck. Everything is a chore in vanilla.

All this talk about TBC ruining world pvp by introducing flying mounts is stupid. Compared to TBC, vanilla is just shitty and unrefined across the board.

It feels almost half-finished. The entire game is just worse. It has more of a classic MMO feel to it than TBC, but overal, as a game, TBC is just flat-out superior. Anyone who disagrees is blinded by nostalgia.

So yeah. TBC is surprisingly awesome.

I started playing on a TBC server that offers instant level 58. Which seems reasonable. But there's hardly any people on it.

But I'd probably prefer a normal TBC server.

A high pop fresh TBC server would be awesome but it's probably never gonna happen. So I guess I'll just dick around where I am now.

It's a shame the private server community is so obsessed with vanilla.

But I'm pretty sure a lot of folks who've played a lot of WoW will agree TBC >>> vanilla.

Also for some reason Outland seems so much more awesome than in retail.

I guess because in retail it's just some shitty space island you have to level through before you get to the game proper.

But in TBC it's basically a dangerous high/max level area where everything is meaningful. The feel is totally different. :o

TBC was peak WoW.

Vanilla has the world and nostalgia but classes and encounters are mostly too simple and unrefined. Wrath still good but too many missteps.

well once you hit level cap you can work on capping your hit (in the 140s iirc) and then you'll start getting more hits and better rage generation. in most situations you won't have an overflowing amount of rage so you'll still need to make smart action choices.

druid tanking is full distinguished mentally-challenged fellow now. no more set rotations, basically just a priority system of 4 attacks and its the same for aoe or single target. :lol however my bear does look like hes made of rocks which is pretty damn cool.

Adventures in Dufus Land

Decided to get back into vanilla.

Low pop, as in... at most 40 people playing at a time, killed the current TBC server for me

Meanwhile vanilla servers have high ass pop i.e. Northdale ~9000

Too high actually... but still.

I'm gonna try vanilla until a new TBC server launches that manages to get high pop

I don't even want super high pop... just not 20 - 40 people, that's too dead for me

400 - 800 would be nice

edit: ya that didn't last very long

grass is greener and all that

the interaction with other people with so many players on the server is rly shallow

i notice people take you less for granted on a low pop server, so everyone is more patient, more friendly etc

although it is nice to have an auction house that's absolutely loaded with seemingly every piece of loot in the game at low prices

read the edit dude :doge i already bailed out

one absolutely massive problem with TBC combat is the misses and parries

vanilla absolutely wasn't like this and I think it's only TBC with the hit rating thing it added

so im guessing to compensate misses and parries became way more common until you get high hit rating

it makes the combat vastly more frustrating

WoW is such a goddamn mess

every expansion it improves things and then makes other things worse

iirc hit was a thing in Vanilla but not until one of the last patches before TBC, maybe the AQ patch? that was a really big patch with a bunch of changes. in TBC step one on reaching level cap was to get your hit capped, otherwise you didn't do shit against raid bosses. i assume it was just to give people a reason to grind heroic 5 mans.

meanwhile i'm still playing Legion and now leveling my Paladin, more fun than Druid tanking at least. tempted to put in the work to unlock Nightborne race but I dunno if I'll even stick around past this month. no matter what i choose, it means i'm no longer allowed to mock dufus for playing vanilla/tbc :'(

it's tempting to dig up a wrath server or something but without the same people i used to play with, i feel like it wouldn't be the same

well im on vanilla for the time being

there's just no good TBC server right now

the one i was at had population of around 20 - 40 people... kinda pointless

im on northdale right now which has 8000 - 10000 people on it

there's at least one TBC server launching in two weeks but im not sure if it'll get much people to play on it

world pvp is such a mess

it's just weird as fuck to attack people while they're busy questing

the world isn't designed for pvp.. so world pvp fkin sux

that's why they introduced battlegrounds... but they also suck

pvp can be fun but it's wildly uneven, unlike pve, and walking back to your corpse takes more than a minute

no wonder people ditched MMOs to play regular multiplayer games
