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...

light's hope is still alive and well

any EU server won't get shut down, assuming they have the funds to keep it running (which kronos has)

Also you better hope these admins are good because woah boy have you never seen online drama until you’ve seen vanilla private server drama.

okay, it is pretty cool to walk into stormwind and slowly realize there are no level 60s, or even 40s, no one has a mount :lol

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.

wow... you can use thunderclap in defensive stance in TBC

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

Imho the most important thing about vanilla is no cross server shit, no queueing etc.

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.

i think there's something off with the mining veins on this server... there's very little even though its low pop

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 seem to be way less veins tho... i think its the server

i dont think ive ever seen tin ore at westfall for example

and i only ever see one particular node in those quarries :goty2
