    Is anything in BC revamped on live? BC could hypothetically come fast

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but I don't believe any of the BC content was ever revamped, was it?

    Seems like adding BC at some point, weather that means one time transfers to a classic+BC server, or whatever, might not take that much effort.

    In theory it wouldn't. I'd imagine they would have more frequent backups of BC too.
    I can't think of anything that was directly changed other than black temple being kinda fucked up on live from the timewalking addition

    Come on, the stupid classic-thingy is not even out yet. Blizzard really don't need more dev time wasted on another pointless project.

    I think they'd want to "finish" Classic first before entertaining BC. So fast is relative.

    All the loot, multiple times.

    Zul'aman was removed.

    The elites in the world were made non-elite.

    The Dark Portal doesn't take you to Outland anymore. The Hellfire Peninsula portal doesn't take you to Blasted Lands.

    Thank you for a real reply, not that I didn't expect a bunch of shit posters on these forums for a real question.

    WoW classic will be massively popular, classic content will get old eventually, players will want BC, bliz likes money.....this is all obvious.

    Mostly class and system changes.
    Check out my game, Craftsmith, on the Google Play Store!

    They'll throttle expansion re-releases, pointless to release BC while the hype is still high from Classic. They'll wait until retail and Classic are in a lull.

    It's literally a different dev team.

    And it's not a pointless project, or wasted time if:

    A. People want it

    or

    B. It makes them more money than they put into it.

    And thus reboot whining for classic again.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    They're committed to at least releasing all of classic through Naxx, how long will that run for.... 2 years? If that doesn't completely flop.
    Can't imagine anything sooner than like 3 years, summer/fall 2022, at the earliest.

    Outland is like a time capsule. I really wish there was relevant stuff in there, I absolutely love the design of some of the dungeons and zones

    And Nagrand. Such a beautiful zone

    Yeah should go pretty fast compared to classic. The data is already on live servers in the right format, they just have to adjust minor things like classes etc, but the big thing like the map and terrain is already fixed and good to go.

    BC is both a better and a worse classic. Much better class design, but much less content and much more end-game focused.

    I'd rather not have TBC. Better said, I wouldn't like to progress from Vanilla to TBC like they are releasing it all again, but I wouldn't mind tbc-specific servers (I'd just avoid playing them).
    I still remember my TBC days and I want them to be a memory, I don't really want to relive them. Stuff got removed from TBC since its release, but we are talking very small compared to what Cata did to Vanilla, and I don't think that warrants a revamp.

    Levelling is faster (less xp needed or more xp gained, no idea)

    You can fly from the start

    All zones scale

    Though that could be an overall thing having nothing to do with the core of TBC.

    Yeah...it could come fast...but why should it come sooner than August 2021?
