    Lightbulb Realistically, How long do you see yourself playing Classic?

    Hello,

    I'm curious to see the intentions of players regarding how long they see themselves playing Classic, especially those who have come back for Classic.

    For Myself, originally I just wanted to kill Ony & MC (which I have not yet done btw). However, getting closer to 60 I find myself really enjoying the experience and foresee myself playing up until phase 6 now, and beyond, on a casual basis.

    Now it is premature of me to suggest that I will even last that long since I havent even reached my original intention yet, but my point is more about how my own intentions towards the game have changed since release. I didn't anticipate enjoying the game as much as I have now that most of the nostalgia has worn off. It's like a long lost friend has come back and I want them to stay around ofc :>

    But yeah, what are people's intentions to how long they will play. Please keep it about your own interest to the game, less about what you think others will do,
    Thanks.
    like totally dude-bro, I couldn't have said it better myself mang

    I plan on playing Classic through at least phase 6 and beyond if they do more.

    Will no doubt play until Zul Gurub, if anything I'll muck about doing some PvP until then; but I'll happily run MC Ony and BWL given the opportunity.

    After that who knows, depends how things look at that point but I've never run Naxx40 so I'd like to do that as progression rather than tourist farm. Really depends on the guild landscape by then because I know I can't be arsed managing these things myself.

    Seriously guys, this forum would be a better place if everyone just stopped acknowledging Zenkai. It's just demeaning to everyone.

    I never planned on pugging Classic content. It's basically my same position as retail. If my guild doesn't raid/participate, then I most likely will just drop WoW.

    I already did everything in Classic, those were my golden years. No lifing the game as a teenager, trying to get rank 12 and end game raid simultaneously. I did everything I could on a shaman and then some and rode out every single patch and talent change.

    There's an interest in classic, but not an attachment. I wanna actually utilize my expensive GPU as well lol.

    Just to level 60, given the extremely solo play style - after 60 there is little left to do.

    However - I plan on taking several months to get to 60.

    Only thing that kept me around originally were the expansions.

    I'm already done. I ended up on the losing side of a 30-70 split server and I would rather paint my entire house than level another character.

    Im pretty much already done i think. I'd like to do the more interesting raids of AQ40 and stuff but i just can't be bothered to raid a year+ of molten core to get to that point.

    This being due to me having played during vanilla live and really don't want to do all that stuff over again. :P

    I would love to clear Naxx, don't have any idea how ambitious a goal that is. I hit 60 last week and already scaled WAAAY back on playing. I've killed Ony and now several bosses in MC in pugs. I'm fine on gear despite not enchanting or doing anything with professions, basically a raid logger at the moment.

    Before the beta I thought this was the dumbest idea ever. 30 min into the beta I realized I was completely wrong. Started playing and figured this was my life for the next however long...but then reality of age set in and I realize that Im just gonna take as long as possible to slowly level 4-5 characters to 60.

    I just dont have the time to set aside for dungeons and especially raids anymore. Dungeon finder ruined the game in a lot of ways, but unfortunately for me LFR and dungeon finder are the only real ways for me to do content like that. When I log in I need to be able to do a dungeon NOW, cant sit around waiting to find a group, let everyone arrive....wipe a few times, then I gotta go. Not fair to others, so this is basically a solo game for me aside from the odd group quests and dungeons.

    1-2 months tops during phase 4'ish when all BGs are out. Or none at all most likely. Do I really want to waste money on an old game I already played? I don't think so. If the best new game the genre had to offer this year was a recreation of old WoW, then the genre is really in quite a bit of trouble. No innovation whatsoever. I'm looking for the BEST and most NOVEL experiences. Classic WoW doesn't quite fit that bill. All it is is a trip down memory lane. Nothing more and nothing less. With that said, if it was free or if I had a lifetime subscription I would have played.

    I didn't know I would like it as much as I do. In a matter of weeks, I went from wondering whether I would reach level 40, to wanting to clear Naxx.

    When I'm not raiding on retail I'm logged on classic. I have no interest in alts on retail now with the essence system and AP grind, so levelling my warrior has been a great change of pace. I'm not rushing and just enjoying the experience again.

    I just want to complete Tier 0 and get Quel'Serrar.
    Check out my game, Craftsmith, on the Google Play Store!

    I’ll play until I feel like it’s a job and not a hobby, last time that happened was in Legion. So i’d say 12/13 years if Blizz re-releases everything.

    No "I stuck to retail and never even started Classic" option.

    Same. I'm also an altoholic so that extends Classic's life for me but, yeah, level 60 is basically the end of the line.
