When wow launched i was only 6. I started playing when AQ was already out and I only made it to level 10. I was able to get far when TBC was out, but I didn't get very into it back in the day. I am wondering if anyone else has a similar background with Classic.

I was seven when I started playing during Vanilla. I ran around as a druid because I saw the lady in the cinematic turn into a cat and I felt that was my calling. I treated getting cat form like it was end game content and I wasted so much time in that level range running around as a cat. The highest i've gotten in Vanilla was level 48ish, the most memorable moments in Vanilla was for sure playing with my family. My whole family played WoW together. We would have family dungeon night every friday. Would spend hours inside dungeons with our computers and laptops in the living room with popcorn/soda etc.
Fond memories!

I haven't tried vanilla, I think my friends and I started around the of TBC.

I'm just excited for a competent new MMORPG, and from what I've seen, Classic is that. It's not about nostalgia for me.

Vanilla WoW is a very well made game. It's literally a MMORPG in the most traditional sense. When I started playing Vanilla servers back in 2010 it was nostalgia that lead me there after that I stayed because it was simply just a good game. Been playing on private servers for Vanilla for almost a entire decade now which is longer than i've played Retail WoW by almost double.

I still have not done a lot of the content either. I still can't say i've cleared naxx fully and haven't played very many classes. I still have a lot on my plate to do. I'm also still discovering things in the game here and there that are brand new. New meta's are being discovered left and right. Still feels like a fresh game to me. You will have a lot of fun.

If you would scan the MMORPG market for upcoming games, I'd say without question (even if WoW was unknown prior to) that Classic was the most promising. What else is there? A stream of half-assed crowdfunded indie attempts, sadly.

It's funny as it is true. The only possible WoW killer is WoW itself.

I only started in BC. Most of the stuff that made TBC such a good game directly came from Vanilla. And I am very excited about the things that were different.

Just to let you guys know someone made a poll a while ago for 'when people start playing' which might be interesting for folks in this thread!

I was playing on a buddies account on and off since May of 05. I finally got my own account in December of 2005 and was only around 50 when BC dropped. Really looking forward to being part of the Vanilla events as they happen this time!

That's absolutely awesome. I have been contemplating getting my wife to play wow particularly for this kind of stuff. I used to sit up all night doing stupid stuff like makee fresh alts and like 2-3man wailing caverns with friends while on vent at low levels where like we all rolled shamans or some such silliness, taking 3 hours to clear it..haven't done anything like that for years now so wow has really become a lonely game.

Started September 2006 just solo-playing. My goal after I got to 60 was to get the D0 set as it felt like the ultimate goal without a guild. Managed to get the last piece a few days before TBC launched. I'm really looking forward to being in a guild and raiding in Classic, as it is something I've never experienced. 40 people in a raid sounds terrifying and awesome at the same time. Don't think I will take up raid leading again (I was a RL during tBC and Wrath)

I was playing EverQuest. I played a couple months in TBC pretty casually. Nostalrius was essentially my first time really playing WoW seriously.

Time-wise, I played a good bit of Vanilla WoW, but I didn't really play WoW. I never read any guides, and honestly I had no idea what I was doing for most of the time that I played. It wasn't until TBC released that I really grasped the concept of what I was supposed to do to progress in the game.

This time around, I am doing my research beforehand. Reading through the posts here, I am realizing so many things that I would never have even thought about. So in some ways, I think the game will feel like a completely different experience to play.

I started playing back in 2006 casually and didn't reach lvl 60 until late TBC. For classic I have done some research beforehand just to keep myself a little bit knowledgeable (races, professions, yada yada), but I won't rush through the levelling process, instead, I will take my time and enjoy it every second.
