Is it true you need the current game and subscription for the vanilla mode.

Havent touched wow since the first expansion, bought the second one at release and dabbled but never made max level and just gave it up.

I missed my pvp guild hitting up AV, getting some mod to queue us all at he same time usually ended with 30+, was great fun.

Was reading comments on a facebook post about it coming soon and some were giving it s**t because you had to earn your mount. Getting your first mount on first toon was a pretty satisfying accomplishment tbh.

Good nostalgia for me if i pick this up. If only i had the same amount of time as my teenage self in the mid 2000's.

The day I hit max level unarmed was my proudest moment.
Me later in Burning Crusade, seasoned prot pally in Hyjal, Hammer of Judgement finally drops. Been after it for ages so had chanting mats on hand and got guildie to chant it. Several waves into second village area, s**t hits the fan. "Panzer! Why aren't you holding threat?!"

..."sozlol haven't maxed maces."

I was watching some beta footage last night. Looks like vanilla with a few of the quality of life improvements that came later such as arrows on the mini map for quests. Purists are crying about that but I'm not fussed, anyone who seriously played WoW would have rolled a million alts and know where every quest is anyway.

A dude I was watching had multiple ranks of abilities on his bars. That's something I completely forgot about, and real talent trees!

One thing I haven't looked into is the order and availability content. I don't assume it includes everything from MC, through AQ to Naxx right off the bat? I wonder what happens when that's all done too? It's not like they will go through the series again but I'd love to see BC. Probably my favourite time in WoW and it was just an extension of vanilla. That's unlikely though because where do you stop.

Ew I forgot about that too! I've enjoyed not caring about mana management on my pally for the past 10 years.

Yeah I'm gonna miss this too. Just don't have time to dedicate to it and don't want to get sucked in. This rag statue has me tempted though.

I was so tempted for this till I realised it's not a game. It's basically just a statue and a couple of ugly mounts that I'll never use.

If they’re complaining about mounts imagine when they pick up a shiny new weapon and have to level up their weapon skill before they can use it
haha I played a dagger rogue and would just level up everything in easy raids like ZG, MC and BWL since no one cared about DPS meters and we'd clear these raids without even thinking.
