    For the most part, addons could have been quite advanced back in classic as well, but for some of those really advanced addons it took years for people to make them.

    Anyway, Classic is based roughly on a 8.1 WoW client, and has similar addon support, with some changes to accomodate for changed game systems, and a few removals.

    It's on at least the 7.3.5 client, so one would assume the 7.3.5 API.

    so questing addons, proper threat meters , dps meters and millions of QoL addons are coming up unless blizz blocks them like they have blocked some addons in the past not to mention classic elvui.

    Threat and dps depend on proper mob id reporting, if that's in then those will work great.

    Vanilla had a ton of UI and questing add-ons so that's no question really

    That being said, it's already been stated that Blizzard is going to reproduce a 'true classic' (with very, very few minor changes) so asking for a fixed Classic isn't really going to happen at this stage.
    But which are the limits of a fixed Classic? How far Blizzard should go without taking away the Classic Experience? is fixed classic balancing all the classes? which criteria? making them more like tbc, wotlk, mop? is fixed classic taking increasing the drop chance and respawn rate?

    Its is true they said very few minor changes but only the ones that wont change the classic experience.

    I’m curious to see what remains “not a bug”.

    Looooooooool, do you have a link? I never could stand Tips. He claimed to be a vanilla fan when all he knew was from private servers and joined the Nostalrius crowd to feel "hip" and "chick".

    Private servers: A few dudes reverse engineering from their garage. Fully functional after a matter of months.
    Classic: Blizzard resources. Nonsensical bugs pop up, even with the source code on hand. Nice!

    Sounds like a great parallel for the following "joke":

    We can also do things like reset the realm at a busy time like 4:30pm PDT to try and find the source of a certain issue where a crocolisk is losing it’s brain due to how multiple processes are interacting and mirroring code to form a cohesive world. There were similar types of issues like this back in 2004 but we wanted to try and resolve this one before the weekend for the folks who are testing.

    Well that's going to depend from person to person. But bug fixes that does no good and making useless specs.. less useless would be something to work, would be some example.

    Classic isn't for everyone and you obviously are not the target market. But instead of revelling in what you perceive to be justification of your viewpoint you should be happy that as of mid-August myself, and many others, will be renewing our subscriptions and in the process helping to support retail WoW. But for Classic Blizzard would never have gotten another dime out me after 3 consecutive disappointing expansions. The day they make changes to Classic to appease people like you is the day I stop playing altogether.
    You remind me of a person that would order a Filet Mignon extra well done and ask for a side of ketchup to wash it down with a Natty Lite.

But, after all… it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."

    Quests objectives and points of interests are not tracked on the map or minimap.
    People really thought this was a bug?

    BWAHAHAHAHA!

    Yessiree. If anything, this will cheer a lot of people up who were a little concerned about things like that. Its everybody else being surprised that makes it funny

    The wrong f*cking people... I am glad I didn't get invited at this point. I reported 34 bugs on Bfa beta and not even half of them get fixed... For example: In Drustvar on the snowing part at the middle of the map there are still flying herbs what you cannot reach...

    It did exist in Vanilla wow, just not for the entire of Vanilla, Can't remember, but if u go on wowwiki u will find a patch which removed the option of sitting down to forcefully to get crit in order to get enraged.

    But yes it exists on most private servers, not sure if its just somethign they struggled to script or what.

    100% agree, all of the people screaming and Shouting about stuff they honestly would have no way of knowing, none of them looked at old Vanilla warriors levelling in 2004. they can only compare it to private servers. even though the HP regen seems to be in accordance to what I've seen on Northdale, so not sure what they are smoking, I guess they're just looking for issues for the sake of it. Gotta find them zebras.
