    It wasn't a walk in the park, it reminded me of original Vanilla where you had to work together as a team, communicate and control everything.

    I was a hunter in this stress test and got as far as i know the only wind serpent pet on the server. It was an awesome tanky pet with a ranged attack with no cooldown and ate mage food :D

    Mobs are elites, levels 17 to 21. so at level 15 it's a great challenge.

    task 1 is to farm the turtle kresh for his blue shield drop with +4 defense. great armour and 9 block value. It really helps for the rest of the instance.

    so you reset the instance and farm kresh until the blue shield drops, then you can go onto the rest of the dungeon.

    You shouldn't. Classic is basically going to be sharing the subscription.

    What's the go with the game being available to download and play now?

    Is it still in the stress test phase?

    3rd round of stress testing.

    STRESS TEST SCHEDULE*
    • Stress Test 1: Wed May 22–Thurs May 23
    • Stress Test 2: Wed Jun 19– Thurs Jun 20
    • Stress Test 3: Thur Aug 8 at 11:00 a.m. PDT
    *Dates of each stress test are subject to change.

    The stress testing servers seem to be purely that. I logged on the other night, and the available Oceanic server is "Swamp of Sorrows", which is not one of what Blizz is reserving for us.

    You are making me super nostalgic Mathuisella! You've just about convinced me to re-sub haha

    I played an enhancement orc shaman back in the day (2H windfury ftw!!!!) but had to respec resto to get a look in for raids... very fond memories.

    Being able to downrank spells again would be fun!

    yes, down-ranking spells is great when you're super low on mana but need a slow effect or something like that rather than the damage.

    Frost shock shammy anyone :p

    You see Vanilla is where the game is at. Every class is good and bad in areas and it's up to the individual to work with it and make those weaknesses into strengths, or do something unexpected to keep yourself alive in world PVP, great times. :D

    I had (minimum) 3 ranks of greater heal on my bars. Dunno why blizz thought getting rid of spell ranks was a good idea.

    They dumbed it down so much that there was no finess, no tuning, no individuality, nothing to seperate one class from another...

    they watered the game down so much

    I used to do so many lowbie WC runthroughs on my mage with level 1 arcane explosion :) It was the best being able to round up the entire instance haha

    Got my name :)

    It's on a friends account, so will have to co-ordinate swapping over.

    Got my name on both OCE realms and an extra alt on the PVP realm.

    Was a bit of a shit show to begin with but was expected.
