Blizzard is launching Classic WoW (vanilla), and I am fucking hyped. I have not yet decided whether I will play or not actually; I know I shouldn't, but I badly want to!

What are your thoughts and sentiments? How are you preparing for the launch? I am watching YouTube-videos every day for levelling, addons, and what not.

My favorite class by far has always been druid, but druids are decent at best in vanilla, and I can't really go rogue or mage which have always been my second picks after druid, because half of the vanilla population is rolling those two classes. I think I am going to roll a warlock, and since they are less common in The Alliance than in The Horde, I will most likely roll a human warlock.

problem is most people think back on vanilla with a nostalgic lens. While I wouldnt mind going back to experience what is was like I do not really want to go through the grindfest that was leveling in vanilla. Just remember no dungeon finder, lack of quests, no mounts til 40.

Dungeon finder was the worst shit ever invented. Completely killed the social aspect of the game.

Yeah one's perspective on grinding changes over time. Seems likely that in the face of 40 hours of somewhat repetitive gameplay people will be more inclined to say "I don't have time for this shit" when as a kid it seemed like a fun adventure.

So, what, they are re-launching vanilla WoW with some QoL/graphics improvements or is it literally just a re-launch of an old game version?

I think and certainly hope that they won't touch the graphics. It's probably going to be very close to a true re-launch like Nostalrius and Elysium.

You realise how much you forgot about the game when you get new about it on another game forum hahaha... I think I'll try the Vanilla servers out and see if I like it. I'm a WoW player since 2010, I didn't play it for the last year or so but I want to start playing it again with the new big update.
