I have to admit that outside of nostalgia

I’m one of those people, but I have to admit that outside of nostalgia, I don’t have many strong opinions on World of Warcraft. I played my fair share of the base game and I’ve returned at various points throughout the years to check out the state of the game. The bulk of my playtime, however, remains with vanilla WoW, so World of Warcraft Classic is a game that’s aimed precisely at me and the people https://www.mmobc.com/wow-classic-gold of similar backgrounds.

Even here in 2019, the core gameplay loop of classic WoW is a lot of fun, and I don’t think that’s only nostalgia talking. It’s slow, that’s for sure, but that’s okay because WoW Classic is something to be savored. There have been and will be plenty of people trying to race to WoW Classic’s level cap of 60, but I would argue that taking your time and getting immersed in the world around you can only improve the experience. That’s especially true for folks who haven’t spent any time playing on unofficial, private vanilla servers. In short: If this is your first foray into vanilla WoW since 2004, take your time in playing this game.


The presence of fetch quests isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it does lend to this feeling that WoW Classic can be a very grindy game. This sort of goes hand-in-hand with the notion https://www.mmobc.com that WoW Classic is also a slow game, but regardless, you’ll do a lot of running around on behalf of people who are holed up in settlements and cities, often to do quests that have a very similar structure. You’ll also do a few escort quests as you play, and I don’t care what game they’re in, I will never like those.
