why not make the game even faster by removing the leveling process all togeather and buying a level 90.


Better yet just give $15 a month to blizzard and skip the game altogeather. Than you can finish the game infinity faster

So thats why it was so easy to get 40 man for a raid in vanilla.

They pulled that shit with WotLk, sure but BC and Vanilla?

>>275644098
you will see the challenge once it is taken away from you

seriously, hop on a 10 day trial, witness the mind numbing ease of leveling now
>>
>>275641865
You faggots don't seem to get it so here it goes:

The game at low levels is easy as shit for two reasons.

1. To make people level up faster, meaning they have to buy the expansion. Which means more money for Blizzard.

2. Casual players don't want a challenge, Blizzard knows this and are bringing in the mad casuals money. Just look at Hearthstone.

It's so fucking simple.

Blizzard doesn't fucking care, they want money. And they are getting it by the truckloads.

I leveled a shaman from 90-100 after resubbing to play with new friends. Hadn't played in 5 years. Shaman don't actually have totems any more, or like you have a couple of big CDs that are "totems"
Now I'm leveling a rogue from scratch and I haven't put a third spell on my action bar yet. I just Mutilate twice and most mobs are dead, the ones that don't die from that wait another GCD for a 30 energy envenom.

But that said, I'm really having a blast with both characters. Enhance still has skill bloat (down from 24 in TBC to like 12 now, but still), resto is in a good place pve (well highmaul is harder on resto than anyone else because of the movement in most fights) and stealthing around all these revamped places and just generally being a rogue in a new world is really neat.

BUT

if given the choice I would take TBC wow. Even with the gating and attunement and kara wipes, I would take that over what we have now. Don't get me wrong, I'm really enjoying this game, but it feels so fundamentally different from TBC that I'm not really thinking of it as WoW.
It must have been really interesting to play through the small changes that have culminated in such a difference from when I played. Like going from skillpoints to this talent tree thing? Losing resilience? yeah
>>
>>275644632
My main is a level 100 Rogue. All I can say is dont bother. Feral druids do everything we can except vastly better. There is no reason to ever bring a rogue when you can have a feral druid.
>>
>>275644507
>you just have to play it for 40 hours until it gets good

Really?
>>
>>275644507
Not OP but, some of my fondest WoW memories came from leveling up, dicking around the world with buddies and exploring new places.
If leveling up is not important, why have level systems at all?
>>
>>275641865
was playing a tbc private server with 2x rates, and even then i thought it was painfully slow. No one really cared about working together, only getting to level 70 to get to endgame shit for some reason, like there was any reason to.

I bought 30 days of play time with mists of pandaria for 5 bucks recently, and i'm having a god damned blast. I can handle everything on my own, leveling is nice and quick, i have access to dungeons but at every fucking level no one cares or wants to do them even on official, so i'm just grinding my way all the way to 90 so that i can run out of game time and realize that i have no reason to ever come back.

Monk is way more fun that warrior ever was, and fury warriors literally have no place end game.
>>
>>275644918
>If leveling up is not important, why have level systems at all?
Well, you need to waste some of that subscriptions time, dont you?
>>
>>275644223
As someone who played since TBC, leveling has not been a challenge. It was only 'hard' when you didn't know what the fuck you were doing.
>>
>>275644761
and this is why the endgame is fucked, they broke it in cataclysm and even partially in wrath

no class provides anything unique to a raid. They dont. If you provide a buff, 5 other classes provide the same buff and they dont stack. Is one class better at everything because of FOTM balancing? Tough shit, you can't raid with that character

it's fucking dumb

in BC i could DPS as a survival hunter, even though i did considerably less than a BM hunter, but I could do it because I provided an assload of AP for everyone hitting the same target as me
>>
>>275644918
Not saying I didn't enjoy progressing through raids with my guild back in vanilla, but I feel like people take the feeling of progression too seriously.
Like, it's the only form of genuine success that is available to them, so they only seek that, to say it like an armchair psychologist.
Leveling? Fuck that. PvP? Fuck that. Level cap, do raids.
>>
>>275644593
People would play those for two months max and you know it. The only ones left after the initial nostalgia rush would be fifty neckbeards raiding MC every other night, not enough to cover costs of the server and fixing bugs.
>>
>>275645264
I think you really underestimate people, I mean you DO know how many private servers are out there, right?
>>
>>275645138
ive been playing since vanilla, friend.

compared to what it is now, it's a challenge. You click on a guy, press 2 spells, and he's dead. you can kill higher level elites with ease. you can run through 8 guys and come out okay.

remember when a murloc would run away and you'd have to take him down or risk 3 more coming to fight you? AND you had to manage your mana? Remember all the fights you ran from? All the times you died because you were'nt paying attention?

that doesnt happen anymore. You will ONLY die if you
a) AFK and take hits (I actually watched my shamman friend kill a guy with lightning shield alone)
b) try to take a group of elite mobs in a dungeon by yourself with no heals

it's just....there's no way to describe it EXCEPT to say that in comparison, it used to be challenging.
>>
I just want to point out, as anyone who has played from Vanilla can attest, that the only "challenge" that was ever present in leveling was the presence of things like elite-filled zones around that world that we all learned to stay away from. Sure, I think the removal of those was a bad idea, but when you avoided the areas you knew had elites, very few of which were ever more than a deterrent to keep people from unfinished content, leveling was just as easy as it is today, except maybe you had to stop to eat or drink once in a while.

Also, I'd say that the leveling experience has actually gotten huge amounts better since Cata, because if nothing else, Blizzard has put a shitload of work into the actual questing and storylines of zones, how they progress and feel interesting without ever really making you feel like you're lost and have nowhere to go next, which was a huge fucking problem in Vanilla and TBC questing.
>>
>>275641865

They literally changed nothing.
>>
>>275644632
I have just started playing after a six year hiatus. Playing my 70 warlock for the first time since BC, and I totally agree that this feels like a different game.

I am enjoying it albeit there is a lot to get used to. I'm pretty casual now too since I'm not 18 and have real life responsibilities. Glad to see leveling is easier, and I all the expansion content from 70+ (Wrath, Cata, etc) is all new to me.

I'm not sure how I feel about the skill systems now. It's really simplified and the whole specialization system is a big change from BC/Vanilla. I see why they did it, but I'm not sure how I feel about the execution. I know the old talent tree still pigeon-holed most classes into specific builds anyway, but this doesn't feel like it takes away that feeling it just does it for you now.

This is just plain wrong. Visit a classic private server and try to level any class. It was very hard, because the game was designed to be a multiplayer game. There were a ton of group and elite quests- even normal quests were very hard if they involved humanoid enemies.
Mob camps/villages/caves were basicially little dungeons.

You HAD to play with others to do some quests.
>>

This

I was playing Dark Age of Camolot when WoW came out
WoW was the most casual shit I had ever touched
>>
>>275645138
Not him, but compared to what it is now, it fucking was a challenge. I'm speaking only for vanilla and TBC, and all these things apply to vanilla more:

Mobs could actually kill you. Now they don't deal enough damage to actually kill you, atleast not until you get to MoP content, where there's mobs that are supposed to hit hard.
You actually needed food and water to heal up between fights. Now you just regen both to 100% in seconds, or sit down to regen both to 100% in a few more seconds, depending on your level.
You actually couldn't just mindlessly pull shit. Now every single class has a high damage AoE spell made for exactly that.
You actually had a hard time killing mobs 3+ levels above you, depending on your class and most importantly, skill level. A good hunter would kill mobs 10 levels above him, a bad hunter would die to 2 mobs his own level after they kill his pet. Yes, that's an extreme example, but other classes were like this too, to an extent.
You had groupquests that actually required you to group up until you were good at your class. These same group quests would wipe people repeatedly if they suck.
Leveling actually required some thought put into it, reading quest texts, understanding where you have to go, knowing if it's something you can do alone, etc. All gone. Go to the quest marker lol

These are all things that made leveling slightly interesting, and not a complete fucking snorefest. And more importantly, it filtered out the complete fucking casuals. Now there's nothing like that, and the complete fucking casuals get matched into your instance runs.

All in all, it's still enjoyable because of the polish they have now, but MUCH less so, and the game suffered a lot overall.
>>
>>275646337
If you really think leveling was hard at 60 you're probably retarded. You could easily level up without ever talking to anyone just as you can now, just ignore group quests, most of the time they weren't even worth the exp, they were just fun to finish for a story line or something.

I wouldn't judge leveling from 1-90 in WoD. Blizzard just makes it a mad dash until you get into some of the later content.

>literally killing every mob in less than 1 GCD
Kind of agree, but leveling in wow always was just formalities, the real game starts at full level.

>get to level 10
>pick a spec, no hybridizing allowed
Talents are for hybridizing. And hybrid classes were useless, aside from pallys for pvp.

>dungeons are a joke, you dont even need a tank
Same as the first one, but they should add all the dungeons in WoW with endgame difficulty for lvl 100

>cant queue for tank if you arent specced for it either
That should be to teach the new players that you can't tank stuff as other specs.

>check my stats as warrior
>agility literally does nothing
Agi was never good for a warrior

>no reason or benefit to stance dance anymore
Agree

>all party buffs consolidated into one of 10 possible stat boosts
Yeah, having party restrictions to get all the buffs was FUN right

>hunters have no melee and can shoot while moving, no mana management either
What kind of useless hunter used melee? Melee weapons for hunters were always just stat sticks, same as ranged weapons for every other class.

>basically every class has a bottomless pit of mana
Agree

>what the fuck happened
People change, the game evolves with them. Forcing people to beign basement dwellers to be good at a game is not a viable mechanic anymore. Still, you can find challenge in WoW.

>I just can't sit there and play MMOs anymore

I think that's the crux of it. That's why WoW has become more and more of a casual experience. The generation who started on WoW back in 2004 were 10 years younger and therefore had a lot more time on their hands. I was 17 when I first started WoW and had a fucking blast cuz I had all that time to play the game. Now trying it out at 28 I have WAY less time to dedicate to this kind of game.

It's a weird trade off that my gaming autism has a hard time accepting. I wanna play a genuine fun MMO kind of game, but I don't have the time to actually dedicate to that.

The fuckin' struggle.

>>275647324
>What kind of useless hunter used melee? Melee weapons for hunters were always just stat sticks, same as ranged weapons for every other class.

this is how i know you're bad. Melee had it's uses in PvP. If someone got close, you used it to wingclip and slow them down, lure them into traps, or straight up crit a mage with mongoose strike for funsies. It also caused you to have to manage your position relative to the person you were fighting. Now you dont have to, you can shoot and run all day long with no drawbacks. There's no dead zone, no melee zone. if you're fighting a mage, you just stand there and shoot at them. they dont try to get close to remove your DPS because theres no point

if you had played hunter before cata, you'd know that. even before wrath too
>>
>>275647324
>Agi was never good for a warrior
Agi gave warriors crit, which has always been their best stat. Back in the day when only a few pieces had Crit%+ it was helpful to get any Str+Agi gear you could.

Actually a big point to buying accounts at lvl 90 isnt so much to do it faster but to appeal to bots which make up a massive number of players. They ban your grinded up bot so what do you do? You go buy a level 90 and bot that. Faster for you to get right into it and more money for blizzard. Yes it looks like they are appealing to casual crowd but the reality of is that they are appealing to the botters who really put the money into the game.

Whats better?
A) some kid playing casually from expantion to expansion
B)some assmunch buying 10 accounts at lvl 90 each and running them 24/7 botting


See the point I am making?

WoW was ALWAYS about endgame content. Leveling your first character was always fun and magical but the rest were just tedious.

>>275647651
Because those items are from vanilla, when the stats were different. Even if AGI do something now, 2 points of AGI wouldn't change nothing.

>this is how i know you're bad. Melee had it's uses in PvP. If someone got close, you used it to wingclip and slow them down,
If you got close as a hunter, you had to get far. Guess who's the baddie.

What kind of moron stacked agi to a warrior? And he complained about quest items, which gave you 2 points of agi

Probably because MC is one of the worst raids in existence.

Unless you're in Paragon you haven't killed that boss yet. Last phase you need to do a ton of aoe. The shaman did significantly more damage than anyone else in the raid because of how broken fire nova is.

Also it helped i had a pocket mage who supplied me with pots and shit in exchange for power infusing (i think that was the name of the discipline skill) him during raids so he could get dem mad crits so i never really had to prepare for anything. I made discipline priest popular on our server.

I checked during a trial and my priest is still wearing his T2 with benediction.

Honing in on hunters was one of the thrills of fighting hunters. Also, you had to exploit their dead zone if you were a mage in order to survive. And yeah, mongoose strike hurt like fuck.

this happened yesterday. you know, 2 expansions AFTER they completely re-did all of vanilla, including items

it was a rare cape from RFC

>wow was the casual alternative to most mmos of the time

This is somewhat true but not a great justification for what the game has become. It used to strike a good balance and some areas and quests would occasionally provide an interesting challenge, dungeons (even the leveling ones) would require you to know how to play your class and definitely couldn't be facerolled. The game started out at an acceptable level of difficulty and has become way too casual.

>I bet you don't even mythic raid

Why bother playing the game for challenging content when I have to suffer through 99% of the games content being insultingly easy.
>>
>>275649493
So basically you're saying you're shit and want to be good at easy stuff and don't want to attempt actual hard stuff? Nothing pre-raid at any level cap has been hard, you're just bad and like to think you're good when you kill some random fucking elite every retard has killed.

It's not just WoW, the entire structure of how MMO's are designed has changed and WoW just evolved with it for better or worse.

RPG's in general are becoming casualized since the audience is becoming broader. It blows but it's not just WoW.
Games like skyrim had just as much of a hand in ruining the RPG genre as any other game. It won't go back as long as it's making money, and it makes a lot of it.

There were more than enough quests, you would just have to travel to them.

Porting to dungeons just supported people not going out in the world at all

Level 40 made it feel like an achievement.
>>
>>275649891
So what if a few things were improved when lots of the fun was gutted?

>poor class balance
This is true. However, so many classes feel homogenized and the lack of class specific quests makes you feel less unique.
>not enough quests
Simply not true.
>couldn't even port to dungeons
That could be a pain when you're halfway across the world but at least the dungeon was fun. It required teammwork and you often ended up being friends with the people you played with. Now you might as well be playing by yourself. Nobody communicates because it's not necessary. You just play with people from different servers and steam roll the dungeon.
>class skill bankrupt you
You mean respecing? Or just buying skills? Either way, gold felt like it actually meant something.
>no mounts until level 40
It was a pain to run everywhere, but at least the cost of mounts made it an accomplishment. Also, class specific mounts had quests and felt meaningful.
>had to look at ugly, mismatched gear
Yet gear actually mattered.

WoW took a turn for the worse, despite some of good additions.

I don't remember exactly, but I think it took me around a month to do by basically playing as much as possible whenever I wasn't in school. I basically only slept 2-3hrs a night, went to school, and played WoW until I hit it.

I remember after I quit hearing about people hitting 60 in a weekend, or even in a single day. Shit's changed.

The fuck did you expect, OP?

When I was playing WoW, I was raging at constant huge power level gaps between items from newest expansion and items from previous expansions. Then I realised this game is only about current expansion and that all previous expansions are literally dead and everyone just fucking skips them in any way possible - xp for next level is reduced as well as monsters hp and you're supposed to move through them as fast as fucking possible. I always laugh at WoWfags, saying their char is worth probably around 500$, because they have a couple of 90 level chars. No, it isn't worth shit, since getting to that level nowadays is a matter of fucking weeks or maybe even less - considering until recently Scroll of Ressurection was boosting chars to level 85.

I'm surprised they aren't actually boosting you to level 90 when you buy the newest expansion, like automatically. They should do it, since no one gives a fuck about old content anyway.

the obtuse and difficult nature of old wow made it feel more satisfying when you accomplished something because you had to work harder at it. New wow makes it so everyone can get everything super easy so no one feels left out. As wow got bigger Blizzard saw more and more people complaining that it was hard for them to do things other players had already done or could accomplish. In order to retain subs Blizzard made it easier which was a smart move but kinda sucked the soul out of the game that people playing since vanilla had become accustomed to. Sites like WoWhead and heavy modding did this as well, there used to be a very wild west feel to wow but now its just a rpg with some multiplayer parts to it

The pacing was a lot slower in old WoW, now you level up too fast, reach maximum cap, and find out there's actually not that much content or depth when you've reached end game since every form of PvE content gets obsleted by Raids.

>Dungeons are pointless
>Crafting is pointless
>Dailies are pointless

>>275652414
My gripes I can think of right now
-There were no automated tools for group finding so you had to socialize with your realm to get anywhere
-Questing was way less linear, nowadays you're handheld from one quest to another
-Group content has been stripped to bare minimum, the very few group quests in the game can be soloed. Way back when you NEEDED at least a tank and a healer with you for group quests in the world.
-Anything outside mythic raiding (the hardest mode out of the 3 available, which I find stupid) is piss easy, especially 5 mans. Modern 5 mans are nothing but AOE fests that are over in 5 minutes with even fucking healers pulling groups of mobs because they pose no threat whatsoever. And I still think adding difficulty modes for raids was stupid, if you can't progress through a raid then too fucking bad.
>>
>>275648681

Dude,FFXIV is exactly the carbon copy of WoW,except with a lot less things to do(the one that matter,anyways) and shittier pvp.

Endgame raid was literally weekly hop from boss to boss,you even need to spend less time in the instance itself than WoW.

Heck,even the crowds itself are the rejected from WoW,easily identifiable because they all play and talk like an elitist retard who parse all the time.

>>275653068
only wrathbabbies and beyond believe this.

the game had a real sense of community because it was harder to level up. dungeons required effort to get done and you formed connections with people on your server that did dungeons with you. Having a guild helped get dungeons done more often, but you frequently found groups on /lfg channel. It let you know who was good, who was bad, who was a troll, who was a faggot, who was nice, ect. It was like playing with actual people.

I cannot even begin to remember any of the names ive played with since Wrath. it's just lfg finder party member #103592. 90% of the time, no one says anything, and beyond the initial dungeons of an expansion release no one says more than whose job is whose ("mage poly adds, ill tank boss." thats it).

dont even try to argue that it wasnt better

>poor class balance
Classes were decently balanced, unless you meant specs, in which case yes. That part did suck for people wanting to be Feral, Boomkin, etc. It was kind of balanced out by how amazing hybrids were in PvP though. Shadow Priests and both DPS Shamans absolutely dominated back in the day.
>not enough quests (had to grind or run dungeons)
There actually were enough quests, people just didn't know where they were because the world was so huge (more on this later) and there weren't as many resources back in the day to find everything. Which is a big issue with MMOs nowadays, everything is already known by the time of release because beta testers and data miners have already found everything it put it up on a million different websites.
>couldn't even port to dungeons
Made the world feel much more alive and larger. Was getting to SM as Alliance or running to Dire Maul from Ironforge a hassle? Obviously. But for the sake of a better world I'd go through that all again in a heart beat. I'd end up running out of room for this post if I started going into stories about how much shit I've had happen on the way to dungeons and raids, so I'm just not going to start.
>class skill bankrupt you
Professions were actually important back in the day, especially gathering for money. So many people went Herb/Mining and Skinning, and for good reason. Gold actually meant something.
>no mounts until level 40
See everything I said about a larger world two points up. Most classes had a way to move around faster by level 40 anyway, and it made getting a mount an achievement to be happy about.

This is still a thing at level 100. Daily quest and world bosses always make reason to team up with strangers.

It's f2p, so you can try it out, if you want to.
I still have an old (running since 2007) Necromancer that I play every now and then as preferred status. I am not a hardcore raider, never been, so I'm not sure what the exact limitations are, but it's definitely playable without a sub. Bein in the low f2p-tier is kinda shitty in terms of inventory space, but it's sufficing to get an idea how the game works.

As for the history of the game, I wouldn't say it has changed fundamentally, it just grew more and more complicated over time with character customization that makes PoE look like child's play. For the worse and better.

However, unless you play a summoner class, the game is geared towards groups.

>mfw I had never played an MMO before and thought it was going to be some awesome RPG game where I could roleplay as a fucking pirate

Yeah, I sat at lvl 40 on my Tauren druid and wondered what the fuck I got into.

All the while my friend was raiding stratholme.

Quickly woke up and found out that competitive online was the only form of online. Such a shame since it took out a lot of the fun stuff.

Yeah it was so fun spamming for 2 hours to get a group and then when you are finally ready and head out there, somebody has to go to eat dinner or some shit so 3 of you stand waiting at the dungeon while another tries to get a 5th back at a city.

I played MMO's that have no LFG, they get tedious as fuck when you have to spend so long getting a group together just for a dam dungeon

No problem.
EQ2 is enormous and you get a decent amount of discovery XP, which is something I like a lot.
All/most/some (not sure, really) magic classes have invisibility spells, so you can go sneak around areas that are ~10 levels above you and nick that sweet disco XP.
Plus, the areas are really nicely designed.

Common lands is still my favourite zone in any MMO ever.

Look, i hate WoW in its current state, but don't go acting like Hardcore is the way to go.. look what happened to Wildstar

I finished my attunement in Wildstar and jumped into raiding, and god was it abysmal due to how fucking hard it is. Every 3 seconds theres a chance for a raid wipe, meaning if someone lagged for ~1sec your whole raid wipes. Theres 0 room for error, the game is unforgiving as fuck and it was in no way 'hardcore' and 'challenging' it was utter bullshit.

and that moment when the trash has more hp than the fucking raidboss, it took 15mins to down a miniboss that just spams adds for you to deal with every ~2min

I fucking hated that game for trying so hard to be vanilla wow, it was cancer.
>>
>>275644098

>ITT faggot yong shits that never played Vanilla or TBC

At lvl 52, it took my holy priest 1 holy fire and 8 smites to down the mobs in Felwood. I could only cast 12 smites before oom. I had to drink water cause my priest wouldn't have enough mana to fight two mobs back to back and he also couldn't kill two mobs at once.

Your post pisses me off. I was just passing by and noticed how others pointed out your stupidity and even me, a person that has no interest in WoW and hasn't played since 2009 had to come in here to let you know, you're a little piece of fucking shit.

Eh, I can live with that.

IIRC LOTRO kind of did that, where the houses would be in a different zone but next to each other.

Wonder what LOTRO is like now. I used to really like it, especially for the musical instruments. This was back in 2006-7 or so though.
>>

There hasn't been a point to them for years, Blizzard stripped out everything that made them unique and gave it to other classes or removed it whole sale

Abusing WoW's 10-day trial system I've managed to build a Shaman from level 1 to something like 65 over the course of this past year I guess. You can hit 40 in like a week anyway.

Anyway, Shaman's are just a lot more boring now. Since stat restrictions are in I get no benefit from stats like Strength even though I'm Enhancement. Totems are a joke now and most of them are about as good as a distraction. Everything dies fast. There is no challenge except for PvP. My only driving goal is to reach the level cap, after only doing it once to 60 with a warlock in Vanilla.

Alright? And 99% of new players aren't looking for some tedious experience with leveling. They just want to enjoy themselves, and leveling in WoW is far better in both categories than it was back in vanilla through wrath for 99% of people. And hell, the only people that don't like the newer leveling are people that want it to take months or find the idea of dying because your class is shit at leveling appealing in some way.

Note: leveling was never hard for some classes, like hunters, locks and mages. Ever.

You could read their exhaustive explanation why. Basically, it made healing more about how many mana cooldowns your raid had instead of proper mana management. You just spammed heals and then called for innervates/mana tides/ hymns/etc. Thats not the healing model they want now, so they removed them.

I have a friend who long ago played a lot of WoW but he stopped at some point.

Now he started again. He seems content with the game but I liked him more before he started again when he still complained about all video games being shit.

Personally I seem to be immune to MMOs. Not RPGs, but MMOs just seem like really dull games where the only hook is that you can do it with a bunch of people you don't know. I guess PvP mite b cool but I don't think it would be worth everything else.

I want to fish, I want to craft items, I want to cook, I want to hunt, I want to gather, I want to entertain and I want to trade. Maybe even swindle fools from their posessions. Shit, how about having some general notice board where players can issue wanted posters of other players or write their own personal quests for other players to do. Where the fuck is my game?

>You will never have one ability rotations on every second class in classic and complain that they simplified classes in wod somehow

>You will never be a paladin in classic and spend all your time manually buffing everyone over and over again

>You will never have to sit to eat/drink after every fucking mob

>You will never pretend you played classic and say that the raids back then were hardcore when almost every encounter had a single mechanic and nothing else

>You will never onehit everyone in naxxgear

>You will never play 16 hours a day for months to get that high warlord title

>You will never get kicked out of a raidgroup for even daring to show up in a mc raid as fury, arms, feral etc. and complain that the classes after vanilla were unbalanced

>You will never play wow on the day they patched in bg´s and everyone stopped world pvping instantly, and later claim "x" killed worldpvp when players themselves killed it

>You will never quest in stranglethorn valley, an area for 30-40´s with xp for maybe 1 and half level´s worth

>You will never complain how they fucked loot distribution later in wow´s life when in mc for example every boss dropped 2 items, rarely 3 for 40 fucking people

>You will never pretend silithus was so fucking amazing, even before the aq patch, when for 90% of classic silithus was completely empty, with nothing there

To be fair

>You will never gimp around in raids feeling hardcore while doing 10% of the dps you could ever again

I think this depended on the server you were on, my world pvp never died when BGs came out. Maybe less frequent in a lot of areas but the major spots like XR TM West Fall and Goldshire always had stuff goin on

I wasn't talking about DoTs, I was talking about curses: curse of weakness, curse of tongues, curse of shadows, curse of recklessness, curse of elements, curse of doom, etc.

Most of them were removed, changed or merged so that the fact that they were curses, and supposed to be a signature spell of warlocks lost its meaning. So removing them completely in WoD didn't really change much.

>>275657475
Weakness was fucking stupid, having one warlock cast it on a boss once, oh such a core spell. Tongues was OP bullshit in pvp. Elements and shadows was merged into one because it's fucking stupid to need two warlocks for all spell damage. Doom still exists, recklessness is the same as weakness.
Nothing remotely core about warlocks was lost, nor was it their signature spell. It made game play a lot better so you don't need 5 warlocks to cover all the debuffs in a raid. Warlocks have always been about dots, which they still have plenty of.

It´s something nobody talks about anymore, nostalgiafags leave it out cause it sucked dick, and retards that didn´t play back then but pretend they did of course don´t know about it because of that

There were a few zones, like stranglethorn and arathi, that were designated for 30-40 in stranglethorn´s case, but only gave quest xp that amounted to 1 1/2 level, so you either had to grind a shitton of mobs/dungeons or hope that you find some quest that leads to another zone somewhere

There were also giant gaps in those quests, like a bunch of level 35 quests that gave you half a level of xp, and then the next quests were for level 40´s

>>275657310
It did on my server back then, can´t speak for all of them
>>
>>275658174

That's because leveling wasn't suppose to be linear. I very much recall going back and forth through zones to do my quests in vanilla. Why are you so bad at video games anon?
>>
>>275658075
I think there's confusion over my point, I'm not arguing the old design was better, I'm arguing vanilla/bc had flawed design because of math and that any identity warlocks had was butchered in wrath/cata with their streamlining; MoP being the best thing that happened to warlocks by making each spec unique, and WoD is just shitting on the example of what class design should be.
>>
>>275658174
STV was alright for quests. Questing in vanilla was completely different to questing now though. You had to fucking earn your experience.
The reason I loved STV though was because it was so great for pvp. Still one of my favourite zones to this day.

>>275656798
Nope. Been playing on and off since 2005. Nice try, faggot.

>>275658174
You're supposed to go to another zone with quests when you run out of them in your current zone.
>>
>>275643005
>lvl 40 you'd get a fucking MOUNT holy shit, the amount of time getting to that level without it made it feel worth it, also saving gold encouraged better buying choices.

This. Mount's were something to aspire to.
>>
Can we all at least agree that Metzen is a fucking retard ruining the lore and WoD is him just jerking off the orcs and the plot makes even less sense than Warcraft plot already did?

If it was intended to zone switch frequently between same level zones, why didn´t you have to do it in any other zone besides arathi and stv?

Those 2 were completely not worth it to even visit, the amount of xp the few quests gave you was completely worthless

>>275659884
Yes

Every time he has a hand in the story it sucks complete dick

I haven't played WoW since the first expansion with the blood elves came out, yet I still remember it like it was yesterday. I was a dwarf hunter named Fiofran, and I killed a level 41 Gorilla, in a jungle area while hunting for a white tiger to make my pet, when I hit level 40. I was told the area doesn't exist anymore. Which makes me sad.
>>
>>275654941
as someone who REALLY wanted wildstar to succeed, its problems went far beyond its overly hardcore attitude.

It is a buggy mess, to this day. It has no real different abilities between classes, they all amount to the same thing. The crafting is neat but to shallow. Not enough pvp, the zones are all instanced. ect ect ect.

Are we talking Vanilla? How did you level 30-40 without STV and Arathi?

For those that started in vanilla/BC before exp requirement nerfs across the board, what dungeon did you level your first character in by doing it way too much

>Farmed Maraudon for the epic dagger, usually full runs
>It drops eventually
>Huntard wins the roll and have to get it again
>>
>>275661913
Oh, Alliance. I never leveled an alliance character in Vanilla so I have no clue about this.
>>
Leveling with quests in vanilla wasn't too annoying until you you were in the mid 50s. W/EPL were nice but when you ran out of stuff there it was pretty bare pickings because places like Silithus and Winterspring had so few quests.

I remember a bunch of runs through SM, Mara, ST, and finally Scholo. Finding the entrance to Mara always took way too long.
>>
>>275662268
Oh man Maraudon, haha. I remember when my friends finally came to WoW (too late, i was playing since Vanilla and they got into it in WotLK) and they went into Maraudon for the first time.

>"Anooon where are we??"
>"Anooon this is so fucking huge!"
>"Anoon where do we go?"
>"Anooon, we've been here for 3 fucking hours and we don't know what the fuck to do, come help us please we can't even get out!"

Fucking nostalgia... I would go back to WoW, but... No, it will be shit, it will not be the same anymore.

>>275663032
Oh and ZF as well, but the temple part was brutal before it was nerfed.

>>275662268
I really wanted the epic robes from Sunken Temple for my priest but it never dropped. It's actually pretty fun instance when you know how to do it properly.
>>
>>275660630
I think the area still exists, but the tiger is a corpse forever and the gorillas are gone.
>>
>>275663179
There's actually something funny they did in WoD when it comes to Maraudon.

When they resized all the dungeons for LFG, they split all the wings in Maraudon, come WoD they added a dungeon completion system, and added Celebras back in to the wings; everyone just leaves the group prematurely now either forgetting or not knowing he exists, confused why they didn't get completion exp.
