    Yeah, I'm sure they'll choose the latter.
    The last classic style content was bc and very early wrath prior to dungeon finder being added and gear creep making aoe spam a thing. It could be argued very early on they tried to go back to it in cata but bads threw a fit. Blizz is likely to do what makes them the most money if they have more/as many players invested in classic as retail they will develop new content for it ala osrs. If however they start doing class changes they will lose people hopefully they are smart enough to see that.

    No, new content is fine if it comes eventually like 2 plus years but class changes are not. Classic wow was based on the old dnd type classes if you can heal you are meant to heal but they let you have a damage spec for convenience
    but it is a known fact that paladins in wow were initially meant to tank as well.
    but it was taken from them, because shamans could not be turned into a capable tank as well, for balance.
    as well as many of the class combinations were originally allowed, only to be scrapped to maintain some sort of status quo.
    i'd say the game was more based on the hero classes of WC3, rather than generic DnD. with a few exceptions, like rogue and hunter.
    i can explain this further if you want, its just a lot to write.

    Classic is perfect though, why would we need more content. Noone will the "perfectly" tuned and definitely not bugged raids. As for feral being fine just needing a weapon, mained feral in vanilla, more than just lack of items was wrong.

    Yeah let's never add new content to Classic because REEEE CLASSIC IS CLASSIC REEEEE and then five years later it can just be a dead fucking product with very little players and no activity because surprise surprise, you can't just keep a game running forever with no new stuff to do in it how fucking dumb are you?

    Post Naxx vanilla style raids? REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE NOT CLASSIC

    It doesn't matter what they think/feel. Money > feelings. If Classic is a huge success they will dive into our pockets, them nor anyone else can stop them. And I welcome their greedy hands. I am 33yo, and lots of spare money for old WoW, just take it away from me!

    Whatever you think the purpose of classic is, you seem to be off the mark.
    Yeah, well, as far as I can tell they're likely talking about TBC and Wrath classic servers.

    I'm still waiting for the link to the interview where they're asked about adding exclusive new content to Classic WoW.
    I did a Necromancer thing. Check it out! All feedback welcome!

    That's a realistic assumption but in the best of all possible worlds I can see new side stories, additional level 60 zones, dungeons, quests and possibly a raid or two released over time as DLC. Smaller than what we think of as an expansion but better than letting Classic rot in its museum case forever.

    The "purist" types (no offense intended) can maintain their more pure version of the game by not buying into that and staying with the original game. Others might well pay a little extra for something additional. The game will have to be very, very successful for that to happen and it won't happen for some time.

    I'll grant though that if you want to generate cyclical interest in Classic to encourage people to return once in a while that would be a way to do it.

    TBC and Wrath servers are the more obvious thing to do but I wouldn't entirely discount the other idea if the game did well enough.

    That one is easy to predict: "We don't have any plans to do anything like this at this time but if there's enough demand it's not off the table."

    Classic is not supposed to be a "reboot" of WoW. Simple as that.

    No, its you being ignorant of the context of the reply.


    The question was posed whether there would be NEW post Naxxramas content. TBC is not new, and the answer is clearly in regards to there being an open possibility based on fan desire.

    You cant just wave this away as TBC when the reply was directed at people discussing potential for new 60 content.

    That has nothing to do with "making brand new content to Classic". Classic was not designed to take the story (and content) in WoW into another direction.
    Wrong. If it is a snapshot with no intention of adding content, then they would say so. They would say no new content rather than saying 'we keep the possibility open depending on fan reaction and desire'. They have used a 'no changes' stance to answer a lot of suggestions, but this is one of the few where they openly say there is a possibility. That is the importance of this news.

    No, it's not supposed to be. But if it ends up being popular enough there's no law that says they can't change their mind and make it one. I think it's very unlikely but certainly not impossible. It's not a decision that will need to be made any time soon.

    Not sure this has been mentioned yet, but something very similar has been done with RuneScape. They released a version of their game as it was in 2007, but over time added more content, but not the same content that was added to the original game. It kept the old school feel, while still providing new content. Blizzard could always do something similar. New content, but keep the vanilla mechanics. Expand the game, not revolutionize it with every expansion. Basically, expand Retail forward, expand Classic outward.

    I would welcome new content if the gameplay aspects stayed the same.

    I'm still waiting for said "context", i.e. a link to the actual interview, not a journalist's own words.

    If that's the case they'll have to increase the team working on Classic to include storywriters and quest developers, etc, which would mean one of three things: either they'll increase the monthly fee; or they'll split the two games into each having its own monthly fee; or we'll start seeing more than just cosmetic items in the cash shop. Or worse: all three of those.

    And the only one I'm comfortable with is the second option.

    Why not? It wont destroy classic idea, it will just expand what they scrapped. Well, I really wanted to see Azhara Crater, it was so epic map. There are so many things that could be added, like Hyjal etc etc. Dunno, I guess TBC and another Xpacs what made some ideas scrap into nothingness... Because some ideas wont fit in "we need more money" situation.
    step into everything will gief ya nothing, mon

    If there enough players staying with Classic to cover its costs plus some profit none of those three things have to happen.

    Except both Classic and modern WoW are tied to the same monthly fee. If one team has to increase its size, then it keeping it all in the same monthly fee, without increasing its price, and not adding MORE stuff to the cash shop slowly becomes more unfeasible.

    "Good will" and "love letters" only go so far. Blizzard is a company, and so they need profits.

    Yes, please. Do show me the citation about Old School Runescape not being supposed to be a reboot. Thanks for asking the question for me. I only wish you also answered it.
