What is World of Warcraft Classic?

In a nutshell, World of Warcraft Classic is the game as it existed in 2006, two years after the game first launched, and before the release of the game’s first full expansion pack, The Burning Crusade.To get more news about WoW Classic Buy Items, you can visit lootwowgold news official website.

It’s this point (Patch 1.12: Drums of War) where the original World of Warcraft, pre-expansion add-ons, was at its strongest, having had a few years of bug squishing and gameplay refinements under its belt. However, it was a considerably tougher, slower game back then, encouraging team play to take on tough foes rather than pandering to today’s solo-friendly play.

Playing was also more of a grind, with the less-populated lands feeling larger in comparison to today, where they are littered with quest options and easily-accessible faster traveling options.If that sounds like a turn off, you're perhaps missing the charm that these early days held. Communities had to be stronger to take on foes, players had to be hardier as there was less in-game hand holding (like basic quality of life elements, such as quest markers), and the game world generally felt a little more unknown and dangerous. Going out into the great unknown felt like a true adventure.

Things like the Dungeon Finder, letting you easily match-make for groups will be gone (not to mention the fact you’ll have to walk to any dungeon entrance, rather than be instantly transported to them), while some of the visual flourishes the game has received over the years will also be dialed back.

Choosing your specific skills in the talent system will be more of a considered task too – you’ll have to go find a trainer to reset skills if you don’t like how you’ve worked out in Classic, whereas the standard game now lets you re-spec on the fly.

While the current World of Warcraft game has undeniably seen a ton of improvements built into it over the years, it hasn’t stopped some from feeling nostalgic about these earlier days of the game.

A desire to re-experience the history of the game had become so great prior to World of Warcraft Classic’s reveal that there were many private servers, set up by hardcore fans, that were essentially DIY efforts to resurrect those halcyon days of WoW.
