Well hello there dear fellows,

I was wondering what is your take on using an addon or something that would help with questing, much like it is on retail today.

Don't you feel that genuine thing would be to rely on quest log and general chat? Asking people, explaining stuff. Even without coordinates on world map!

I feel like this would bring just so much more fun, than going to the spot market on your map without having any clue about what is actually happening and clicking on highlighted item which seems random.

What do you think?

Personally I use the addon Questie as I don't find much enjoyment in having to spend extra time locating people and areas. However, I try to read the lore and be more immersed whenever there is a longer quest-chain or class specific task.

Really depends on how you enjoy playing the game. Some people like to relax when they play and just enjoy the atmosphere while slowly grinding away at whatever they're working on. If you're hardcore into exploration or role playing then it makes sense to play blind. I'd be hypocritical if I complained about it being that I was always tabbing out to Allakhazam and Thottbot in the old days. Chances are that I will use Questie come Classic and much like [mention]Rootdancer[/mention] still read lore and take my time.

I will personally not use a quest helping AddOn, but those that wants to can go for it, of course.

I will rely on muscle memory, and those I cannot fully remember I will simply take my time and read the quest text. I don’t think I will feel in a hurry when finally getting my hands on an official Classic server.

I won't use Questie at least for my first character. I wanna experience as immersive gameplay as possible.

How long do you expect it to take you to hit 60? I imagine no Questie and focus on immersion will lengthen the time quite a bit Razz

Depends on class choice as well as muscle memory of some of the quests. I'd quess it could even take you 1 more day /played without questie, dunno.

It is actually rather interesting why we sometimes feel like slow leveling is not desirable, and hitting 60 quickly is a goal. The thing is that learning to enjoy the process is key if you want to have fun - especially if you're looking forward to bond with the chosen character.

Exactly. But for some people who have already leveled through Vanilla countless times, doing the same quests over and over might get boring after some time. It still will be fun but if they are mostly looking forward to minmaxing and getting to top guilds, levelling isn't for them.

I personally will try to immerse myself into the game as deep as possible. Not using quest helper will be one of the key things to do so. I'm gonna play Alliance so it's good that I have only played Horde on private servers so far so I won't have the Alliance quests in fresh mind, so I can explore the world once again.

To be honest, I'm not sure I'd resist using some quest helper when leveling for the second or third time on the same faction 🙂

For the first time though, it will feel fresh for sure.

Yea for the next characters, if I'm gonna make any, I will use quest helper for sure.

To be honest, I might use this legendary guide for some giggles after I am done with my main.

Purely for Horde this one, though. But instead of a quest helping AddOn I'll pop this one up on the second screen :biggrin:

I'm not going to use it. Used one on a private server and it definitely streamlined everything. But when classic comes out, I want to regress to a clueless 13 year old again with no idea how to min/max hah.
