    This leads to any serious player having quest addons to do questing that needs to be maintained and updated. If there's any QoL change I wish Blizzard implements, it's quest indicators on the world map. I mean let's be honest, within 2 weeks everyone that plans on staying will be using such an addon, and it'd be better if Blizzard themselves added one.

    Other than that, literally nothing on the poll list bothers me. All of that was simply part of the experience. And a lot of people will read my post and feel the same, but you do get tired of the "to the west, along the mountain" and just running blindly, or you alt-tab to check a classic db site.

    I will most likely try to get my first 60 without such an addon, because I really want to go back to that slower style of leveling where you aren't just following along a set route, but the lack of a world map quest indicator really does feel like self-gimping after a while.
    Having no quest indicators in game is one of the things I am looking FORWARD to in classic.

    Have potions been addressed in classic at all? You used to be able to drink multiple potions on a cool down rather than one per encounter.

    As someone who actually played back when Vanilla was current there is a lot I don't like about it. Classic will be a nice trip down nostalgia lane but I can't see myself actually playing it long term. There have been so many QoL things added over the years that I don't know if I can go back to playing a game stripped of a lot of them.

    Mainly though the idea that my preferred class just isn't viable unless I want to heal. I am however really excited to just see the old world again though. I fear it won't feel the same though because it was literally almost half my life ago and the magic won't be the same.

    Well I want to play enhancement shaman but I also want to raid, so I don't like I can't do both.

    The horribly slow pace of combat.

  7. #287
    40 man raids. As a person who has never been in a hardcore raiding guild and never will be in one. Waiting hours upon hours for a pug raid to get enough people was a pita.
    I'm the root of all that is evil, yeah, but you can call me cookie.

    A straw man is to lay out the oppositions argument for them, and then attack it. Considering i attacked his original statement by explaining it is paradoxical for X and Y reason and giving an example is not a straw man. You cannot love 2 different things that are in opposition to eachother within the same context.

    Imagine explaining a straw man as " Claiming something false " what a fucking joke lol

    It’s only QoL stuff that will be jarring, but I started playing when most of this stuff was still in play.

    You have been playing the wrong game for approximately 16 years.

    That the same bunch of clueless fools that are in charge of retail are also in charge of Classic...

    I'm hyped but there will definitely be some quality of life issues that'll be kind of annoying. I checked about half the boxes, but the biggest for me is probably a lack of aoe looting.

    The crappy old graphics. I would have been 100% behind this if they had remastered the game with new models.

  18. #298
    Of all the things you listed the only think I mind is the graphics tbh. They are too damn old and the spectacle of it being my first MMO will not apply the second time. Many of the other things listed are immersive elements that help make things actually feel like an RPG.

    This, especially as a holy priest. So painful when I tried to solo.

    The thing I dislike about classic the most, even though I don't want it changed at all, is debuff lengths. Some of them are awfully long. Sometimes as a melee class you will just be standing still and unable to move or attack things because you are frozen in place for a long time. You will be slowed for a long time. The ability to not move or control your toon for a long time can be very frustrating.
