For someone that never, ever played WoW, what was the best thing about it? Why did people live and breath this game for years? I got friends who literally get sad talking about the old times on it. It ruined others lives completely.
>>
>>324251931
huge world
huge playerbase

>>
>>324251612
BRD was amazing. It's probably the most unique dungeon to be added in wow yet.
>>
>>324251931
For me, it was my first mmo (other than planetside 1 for about a week), so that alone was a big part. I had never played an rpg where you could find people randomly in the huge ass world, so that was cool. I love the art style as well. Played for about 8 months right when it came out then had to stop because I went to boot camp. Played one more time for maybe a year around when wotlk came out and stopped a few months into Cata. Cata was cool from the standpoint of it changing a lot of things up, but it also ruined some of my favorite zones. Namely Dun Murogh.
>>
>>324251612
I never finished in vanilla either, but I did finish it later at the right level. I had a prot warrior alt that I only leveled using the dungeon finder and I knew BRD inside and out, I knew every single boss and people loved me when I would run BRD. I got compliments from people that running the whole dungeon was some of the best fun they had playing WoW and it made me feel very warm inside.
>>
>>324251612
>>324251698
I like BRD, but honestly I think it might be TOO big.
It's fucking huge, there's, what, 21 bosses in the full thing?
>>
>>324251931
It was easy to get into, which would lead to ease of interaction with other people, which would lead to ease of making friends.

The world felt massive before full-world flying and dungeon queues came along, and with the ease of interaction/friendmaking already in-place, you could pretty much go on adventures just getting from a main city to a particular dungeon that you wanted to run that day.

Scarlet Monastary and you're a human in Stormwind? Well first gather up your party of friends/strangers, fly up to the closest taxi drop-off you can (not full-world flying), then trek from there through a forest that had monsters that might hurt a little, and players that could hurt a lot. You're almost there, but just remember, Scarlet Monastary is kinda close to the Undead main city, and a lot of enemy faction players hang out there, so stay on your toes. Alright, you've made it, now get into SM by walking into the hallways full of either NPC enemies, or opposing faction players and run into the dungeon portal.

Good job! Now run the dungeon.

I have no idea, but I was one of those people. I remember it went on for years. As soon as school ended I would cycle as fast as I could back home, boot my computer and wow and then play it until I had to go to sleep.


I'm sure it affected me growing up negatively in a lot of ways. That being said some of my best memories are from the game.
>>
>>324252394

You weren't supposed to do a full run if you didn't want to. You could stop after the first few bosses if you were in your mid fifties and you could skip more than half of the dungeon between optional bosses and shortcuts that required keys.

Also i suspect brd was supposed to be an elite-only area but was converted into a dungeon after the alpha, just like Stratholme.
>>
>>324252557
Best memory of PS1 was on the snow continent at a giant ass bridge. I was NC, TR across the way. Both sides literally set up siege lines of tanks and MAXs just exchanging fire. Some poor souls would try to drive across the bridge, who knows why. Someone organized about 20 of us together and we took liberators and reavers (about 12 vehicles in total). We took a long route not to be detected and carpet bombed them to fuck. I don't remember the outcome of the battle, but we sure wrecked them on those strafing runs and I had a blast.
>>
>>324252561
The whole concept of being "stuck" in the zone and having to look for a way back to the surface world was really cool. Underwater combat? Not so much. Overall I'd give it an 8/10.
>>
Close to everything in vanilla was comfy as fuck. Except maybe what, Desolace ? But even then Desolace had it's own vibe.

You know, i miss vanilla every single day. I think these were the last day i felt happiness. I wish that when i die, i could play WoW vanilla again.

If you make a beeline to the last boss, you only need to fight like 4~5 bosses.

For players that can stealth, there is a route through the lava that allows them to skip everything to reach the MC portal for attunement.

>>324253261
I spent so much time there my guild consults me as an attunement guide for new raiders. Was a rogue solo farming dark iron ore. I was also a fire-resist bracer farmer for my guild, my guildies just had to wait at the entrance while I soloed Lord Incendius. They nerfed the item loot distance later though.

I was a bit disappointed the world pvp wasn't bigger than it was when I played in vanilla. Tarren mill was the only place that did it that I found. And it was every day.

Dear vanillafags, do you remember Project X from the Eluna server? It's about that female player that was the first on the server to have 9/9 T3? That video exposed her private camwhore videos she sent to the GM to get the loot over other players, it's completely pornographic. She changed servers and her name instantly when that video was released to the public. I tried finding it, but I only found dead links. Any of you still have it?

Also let's post some guild videos of our own:

>>324254152
I never got the "arenas are esports and serious business" thing blizzard tried to push.
In every team based, class PvP game, deathmatch is reserved for casual shitters and objective based gameplay is the focus of competitive play.
Yet in wow, it was the opposite. Deathmatch was the "serious" pvp.
The focus on deathmatch pretty much turned any spec/comp without focus on survival irrelevant.

I resub about once every 6 months now, I haven't played seriously since late Wrath.
It's usually not worth it, once you get two or so characters to the level cap you realize it's just gonna be more of the same shit for weeks and weeks until you get bored and stop.
The current endgame model has you running like four different versions of the same raid week after week. Once you've got enough gear from the first one, you move on to the second one and so on
By the time you make it to the point where you're geared enough for the hardest version of the raid, you've already been through the place too many times and it's boring as fuck
I hear PvP is pretty badly imbalanced right now, too

Prior to the BGs, other world pvp hotspots include
>Crossroads (alliance would often organise full raids to kill all NPCs)
>Nesingwary camp in STV, usually escalates to GromGol vs Rebel Camp
>Booty Bay/Gadgetzan/Everlook, they gave the goblin guards plenty of CCs later due to this.

Interestingly, on PvP servers, outside of these places, players would often just /wave to each other since there's nothing much to gain from fighting.

I started playing again last month since quitting back in 2008 and I think it's okay. The demands raid groups have for ilvl and achievments is fucking absurd though, so you'll probably have to LFR all the raid content and it's not even the same experience at that point. PvP is fun if you're a ranged class, but then again you cannot possibly have worse PvP than TBC's.

it was a panic attack from blizzard due to Starcraft's fail and people leaving WoW for mobas.

The moment the new expansion comes out people will reach endgame in one month. Not the elitist hardcore raiders. Fucking casual players reach it in one fucking month.
Then guess what there is absolutely nothing to do in WoW for a half year and Blizz is shitting out expansions to increase the lifespan of WoW.

i got into wow for the pvp. I was never much of a warcraft fan. i played the first and dabbled with the second. finished #3 excluding the expansion. but when i heard blizzard the same company that gave me diablo and starcraft was making an mmo where you could kill other players i was stoked.
Battlegrounds ruined it though. blizzard should have just kept the game to where you did pve to get gear then played around with it by trolling the enemy in world pvp or fought over rare spawns like the devilsaurs in ungoro crater. That's what mmo pvp should be; players fighting over pve elements that fuel the player run economy. Not the instanced master league gamer garbage that it is now.

While I still think that Wotlk was better than TBC (I'm probably biased because I love north mythology), yet I hate the shit out of blizzard for making Wotlk to it what it became.
I still think Wotlk was Blizzards most fucked up expansion because of the ungodly amount of wasted potential.
Races, classes, role, gameplay, factions, zones. They all could have been so much damn better.

I still remember I got especially mad when I started my first DK and made the questline.
Who the unholy fuck thought that it was good? Or wait, I used the bad word with "good", it should be logical or acceptable in any way?

You know after that I wasn't even surprised all expansions were shit. I expected nothing.

I never "played" WoW (because I aint payin every month for a game) but I spent many hours explorating its world with the free version

As it only goes to level 20, I had very hard times when travelling across high level areas
I tried to avoid enemies as much as possible, but sometimes I had to pass among them and it would take me dozens of minutes to slowly pass them with the combo travelling to place of death with the ghost, resurrecting and trying to advance as much as possible before next death

Good time overall

>>324259626
This was before they removed hit chance. Secondary stats at level 10 scaled like mad. Just putting one pyrium weapon chain on your offhand made it so you could hit level 70s without ever missing, though the highest a level 10's ever killed is a level 60 player.

Have a level 10 ganking people in Stranglethorn where everybody's 30-40

As of right now, there really isn't going to be any new content until Legion, and that's still months away with a release date planned in September. Other than the arduous legendary ring quest, raiding, and PvP, there's nothing to come back for unless you plan on doing old world content, or perhaps RP, and even then there isn't a whole lot of actual good RP.

Though I'm a bit cynical, and coming back to the game after so long can actually be rather fun. I did the same thing a few months back. I stopped playing near the beginning of WoD and came back for Hellfire Citadel and enjoyed myself for a bit, but then I ran out of things to keep my interest, and while I've tried to level a few alts, the only ones I have now are 90+ and require leveling through Draenor, which is undoubtedly the worst leveling experience as of right now. Even MoP leveling didn't get this bad after a few alts.

I really do hope the wait for Legion will be worth it, and I hope it'll help breath some new life into the game, but I'm at the end of my ropes here, and if Legion ends up the same as WoD, I think I might finally let my characters rest.

Instances shouldn't be so confusing. BRD and LBRS straight-up weren't good instances because they were so all over the place. So many times people had to leave or you got lost that it became a chore to do them.

almost every 10 twink will tell you that preying on level 30s is like a level 19 twink preying on level 25s.

nelf was just 'slow' because people did them wrong and it was a meme. The world record back in vanilla at the time was set by a night elf and he crushed it, and part of that is because you could go 1-10 in like 3-4 hours (back then that was quick) and 10-18 took maybe another 4 or 5. Nelf was soooo much faster it wasn't even funny, if you knew which order to do the quests in and how to do it efficiently. This quick of a time was not possible in any other starting zone.

I will, because Sunken Temple actually felt like an adventure, being lost in an instance was my idea of fun, it wasn't about the race to finish the it so I can maybe get that one gear drop I want, but it was about getting immersed into the slightly confusing layout helped with that. It wasn't even as big of a labyrinth as everyone else claimed, you did the instance once and you would know how to navigate it yourself just fine from then on. I swear I felt superior to everyone claiming it was too confusing.

I fucking loved Maraudon. I fucking loved finally getting a group together, running there, deciding which part to start with. I loved spending 5 hours in there.

I loved reaching the waterfall part. I loved the big, white hydras and the stone giants. I even loved hating the swamp and the eggsac parts.

I'm still trying to pinpoint why.

you could probably binge on it for a week or so. 2-3 weeks if you like making alts

Whenever I resub I usually make an alt on a new server and play it for 1-2 weeks then I'm slowly reminded of all the things I used to hate and be bored by, and then I quit again

if you have already played WoD then there's no reason to return now

I think the newer zones all feel more "handcrafted" in the sense that they have less pointless travel time and no empty areas

That's also the reason why the older design is often better though. The areas feel bigger and not so much made for you. Feels more like they exist without you.

That doesn't sound "hand-crafted" to me at all; sounds like a machine that is programmed to produce a flawless, scripted, and streamlined world with little margin of error, resulting in an ugly, bland, overly dense world with npcs and landmarks populated over it in specific quadrants as if on a page of math graphing paper.

A "real" world is imperfect; that adventure and wonder is created by both the errors and free-flowing artistic creativity only the human hand, and mother nature, can do.

There was a shaman on my server who RP'd outside of the Thunder Lizard area in Durotar for the entirety of vanilla and BC (maybe longer, I stopped playing).

Every day for 4 years, level 10 shaman RP'd as some kind of Thunder Lizard conservationist.

If I recall they flooded the entire area in Cataclysm? I don't think there could possibly be anybody more wronged by Blizzard than that Shaman.

I guess "hand-crafted" was a bad word to use. What I meant was that the newer zones felt more deliberately designed than the old ones. Pretty much what you describe as streamlined and flawless


I don't agree that artistic creativity of humans is the same as nature's.

mother nature is accidental
human 'art' is intentional

Making flaws and more "natural" landscapes is a deliberate process just as well as making too perfect landscapes are.

That's true but I meant compared to the other starter areas where they are mostly warzones as >>324271381 mentioned, Mulgore still remains comfy.

As far as after Mulgore, I think most players head to Northern Barrens but I personally always head to the undead areas after the initial 10 levels or so regardless of what race I played

>>
>>324272782
I'm pretty sure most people can agree that patch 3.2 is the exact moment WoW tipped over the edge from dragging itself along into unchecked, accelerating freefall.

And hard modes were a great idea!

... when they were creative and seamlessly integrated into the fights for exactly two patches before the aforementioned freefall.

I don't think a lot of people noticed actually. But even if they did it wouldn't have mattered much. Blizzard can get away with anything as long as their army of drones keeps defending everything they do.

I enjoyed Wrath but the pandering to casuals was in full swing by that point and I really disliked that, I stuck it out though because on the whole Wrath was decent.

He's kinda BSing. The part he's talking about is darkwhisper gorge, an area that was filled with elite demons. Only very few quests required you to venture there.

In Cata they made this under-utilized area into a questing area under the Hyjal zone.

Cataclysm really had this unintentional effect of making the entire old world resonate this weird feeling like being in a game of Mousetrap where the trap's been set off and is now just laying there... forever.

They made every single zone and storyline this huge, bombastic event, and the result is that if you ever revisit these zones you're basically just sitting on the congratulations screen for all eternity.

Shit, if you go back to Stonetalon Mountains will Garrosh still be sitting at the top of the Horde town congratulating you for your heroism?

If they actually cared about quality they'd make it so each zone didn't have "hard" borders and they would add/change things subtly with each patch so after awhile you could go back and see what was new/what developed over time. It would make the game feel alive and reward long-time players, plus it would be building continuous content over years instead of just wiping everything and starting over every expansion.

They said they would never do something like that again, because the sheer amount of work that went into it meant that ICC lasted much longer than it should have, people got angry, and Cata endgame was almost as barren as WoD. They will never do a huge revamp like that ever again.

I hate to break this to you, anon, but they're adamant about it.

They would rather have the other half work on the new expansion while the main ones works on the current one.

I'm sorry, but we're never going to get a revamp where Azeroth is somewhat healed from the Cataclysm.

Just like how Skywall will never be a
