Classic I feel bad for new, wholesome, kind players hitting 80 and being kicked from groups for gear. Here’s a quick guide:

673 Upvotes

Step 1: if you have gold buy crafted gear (the best being dark moon card greatness and the belt/boots for your armor type). Level your professions (google what’s best for your spec)

Step 2: normal high level dungeons to replace your worst gear

Step 3: normal heroics, these may be tough to find so I recommend starting your own group for it (be patient). Look at the heroism/valor badge vendors in dalaran for relevant gear like trinkets. Run. VoA 10/25 every week

At this point your gear score should be around 3.5k+. If your weapon is shit do some battlegrounds and get the deadly weapon from the vendor in the dalaran sewers for honor.

Step 4: Now get into Naxx and soak up all the loot you can. Although it’s crazy easy, make sure you watch guides so your raid doesn’t get upset with you. Eye of eternity and obsidian sanctum are also great options.

Now you should have at least a 4k gs

Step 5: Run heroic+ to replace your worst pieces. Make sure you do the daily everyday for conquest badges.

Once you have 4.5k gs or near look for ulduar normal runs. Again do extensive research on boss fights.

Finally, you can start looking for ulduar hard modes.

I see a lot of players confused on what to do so I wanted to do my best to help. Please feel free to critique my advice or add additional help in the comments.

Thank you, Cooldad/Coolerdad pagle alliance

Nostalgia LF OLD GUILDIES

464 Upvotes

Hi Friends. This is a total long shot, but here goes.

Back in OG Vanilla, TBC, WOTLK, I played an Alliance NE Rogue. Was in a guild, but I can’t remember the name. If any of them are still playing classic or otherwise, it’d be cool to reconnect with them. Lots of fond memories from those days.

Server was ARTHAS. Toon name was Paxinos

The only three guild members I remember were:

  • Featah - NE Priest
  • Arkay - human warrior
  • Blivo - gnome warrior

Let’s see what happens!

Discussion How long do you think vanilla era will last?

17 Upvotes

I’m thinking about the vanilla (2006) servers, as well as som and the coming hc servers. I’m just leveling another warrior to 60 as i regretfully didnt clone my original main when TBC came out.

I’m hoping classic era will last atleast another couple years, or longer, so we can raid, pvp and chill on these servers without the time worry.

How long does r/classicwow predict vanilla era will last from now?

Classic Would you play if TBC was recycled one more time?

708 Upvotes

TBC was and still is the only expansion I played fully, I started playing WoW playing TBC and obviously fell in love. It has the classic aspect in terms of leveling and world pvp, and has arenas ( never got interested in endgame content ).

Having played the past TBC cycle which I believe was short, a year and 2-3 months. And especially since they didn't keep some TBC realms alive, they only kept Vanilla and Wrath. I'm still itching to play the expansion, try other classes other than what I played.

Honestly, classic TBC has been a highlight in my life gaming wise, I really enjoyed all aspects of the game except raiding :D So I'm wondering if Blizzard would ever recycle TBC or create a SoM version or whatever, and if people would still play my favorite expansion.

Peace.

I’ll start first: swimming up in water sometimes causes you to DC. The amount of death appeals in HC in water vs on land is not proportionate to how much time you spend questing in water.

the spellbinder robes on, a beautiful cut matched with an elegant pattern. the dichotomy of the bolt bodacious fire truck red belt, obtained from sleeping with Captain Sander's in Westfall (trust me I'm wearing his t-shirt as well) complimented with the cool calm and collected tone of shaqueeshes garmets, are what many would call a statement. the fly tiger spectacle 3000s, are the "icing on the cake" providing a classy and innovative addition to an already jaw-dropping look.

Discussion Would play a WoW Classic prequel, that takes place either during or before the War of the Ancients?

1.1k Upvotes

A lot of people over the years have discussed a WoW sequel, but hear me out. What if instead we got a prequel that takes place ~10,000 years prior to the WoW Classic timeline?

According to the WoW lore, 10,000 years ago, the Burning Legion invaded Azeroth and there was a huge global conflict known as the War of the Ancients. At the end of this war, a massive source of energy sitting at the center of Azeroth literally exploded, which split the landmass into the parts that we know in the current WoW, i.e. Kalimdor, Northrend, Pandaria, Kul Tiras, etc. This event is known as the Sundering in the WoW lore.

I think there is huge untapped potential here. Over the years, WoW has given us a lot of flashbacks from this era, but a MMORPG that actually takes place in the pre-Sundering world could be the breath of fresh air that the Warcraft franchise needs.

Question Classic wow character to WotLK

This may seems like a stupid question but I can’t find the answer online. Will my character from classic be able to continue to Wrath when I buy the xpac? Or do I need to buy the xpac and make a new character?

Question So is owl rly the best leveling pet?

Upvotes

Heyo currently leveling a hunter, was always under impression that cats are the best pet for leveling due to high astkdpeed, and dmg bonus while able to learn both claw/bite. However there is a recent trend that owls due to aoe screech are better ones? Is it worth going back and taming an owl as 20+ hunter ?

Title. I've just started playing and I've got it boiled down between mage and hunter and can't quite pick. What do you think is gonna be more in demand? For Mage I'm personally drawn towards fire but I heard it's super duper gear dependent

Old Swifty video where he uses spell reflect against 40 casters. Epic video and I think most people have seen it. But I never understood how his spell reflect lasted for the full duration and reflected like 80 spells? Why didn’t his spell reflect disappear after the first reflect like it’s supposed to?

Question Razer Tartarus Pro movement not compatible with classic wow/ classic wotlk?

0 Upvotes

I was using an orbweaver chroma for a while, which I loved since as a enhance shaman it felt a lot more accessible to play. However, I was having problems with the switches in the orbweaver not working. So I bought the Tartarus pro expecting it to work identically, and of course, it doesn't seem to work the same. The movement is not the same, for some reason I can't forward or backward strafe. I have 100% made sure all the mappings are correct for movement on both the razer software and the WoW keybind side.

Was wondering if anyone else had this same issue, about to just buy a new orbweaver at this point. I have been using my numpad on my keyboard for the time being, but I do love being able to control movement and inputs with 1 hand.

Discussion Spider pets in Vanilla

0 Upvotes

Yo,

So I am levelling a hunter and have had three diff pets. Cat, Boar, Spider. Level 25 for each

Going by the Petopia stuff and reading here on the subreddit the consensus is that that Cats are A tier (dmg and prowl), boars are B tier (charge, and can eat anything), and spiders are C/D tier (just bite)

However- I’ve noticed that the spider actually has highest damage (black widow hatchling) and can hold aggro better than the boar (not sure about Cat)

Using beast lore- the spider has a damage range of 39-44 at lvl 25

This was higher than a level 29 cat (someone else’s pet) that I used beast lore on

Dmg for the boar is hella low but they’re low maintenance which is nice

Just looking for discussion on this as it seems to me spiders are actually better than people say even though they don’t have any special spells

Nostalgia Do guilds still do guild events?

0 Upvotes

Hey all! I am curious if guilds still do their own fun events in game. I remember in vanilla/TBC every so often our guild leader and officers used to host things like level 1 hogger raids and naked gnome races from Dun Morough to Menethil harbor.

We also did an event one time where we had a level 70 mage RP out a raid encounter against 40 level 1 taurens, the video is on YouTube still if anyone is curious! I am interested to see if people still do things like this today, or if that was just a quirky thing some people used to do way back when! Would love to hear any stories about cool events your guilds used to do a long time ago!
