    Do you think anyone will get to 50s so soon on Vanilla's content and XP gain logic? :lol:

    In 1 day, 40 to 48 is possible.

    3 days 40 to 60 is possible

    2 Days.

    1 to 20 is 10 hours.

    So in theory, it'd take a whole week to get to 60. That's plenty of time for bugs to be found later and for them to be dealt with long before most will come by them.

    My impression anyway.

    Levelling in Classic would be most of the appeal for me, I wouldn't rush it to end-game like people do today.
    Actually challenging battles, having to work with others for a lot of it, and finding and using loot that is an upgrade and a big deal, some which would have to reskill-up in just to use, etc.

    8 hour raids and AV matches can wait.

    Precisely.

    No heirlooms. No BIS gear form last expansion to carry you through the next level grind. No cache rewards from dungeon queues.

    While spamming dungeons may work for the XP, I think the gear will be most people's biggest problem.

    I'm planning on taking it slowly, enjoying the quests, exploring and hitting some goals along the way.

    Rushing to 60 is missing so much of the game, and missing the entire point of Classic - a fresh world to explore and start all over again.

    It's not like there's an insane amount of content at 60 at release anyway. Put away your adult diapers, get some sleep and chill out.

    Do world firsts count when it comes down to levelling plus grinding gear from previous tier? Everyone knows exactly what to do anyways.

    No, because said "world firsts" happened in 2004.

    What?

    If you zerg rush the content with a class suited for grinding (warlock/hunter) it’s around 50hrs of /played to ding 60

    You're missing a 1 there bud. World record is almost 5 days /played. Unless you count some of the dodgier private servers with questionable xp rewards, in which case its about 3.5 days.

    Considering there will be competition for mobs/quests/etc, even among those that "get ahead", you'll be looking at 150+ hours for 60 for the vast vast majority of people. No one will hit 60 in under 100 hours /played.

    Treating WoW Classic as a competition doesn't make any sense to me. The current "world first" pushes involve cobbling together strategies about what will/won't work. Back in 2004/5 when this was new, there was no mmo-champion, no youtube, no social media sites etc, and so there was much less information out there. Most of the top guilds knew each other, and feeder guilds knew somebody who knew somebody who had a strategy.

    Fast forward to now and there are thousands of hours of boss kills on youtube alone. It's bemusing that so many people are clamouring for "world first" as though it connotes the same prestige and glory, when the vast majority will just be whoever gets there with enough people earliest. But that's fine. People will do whatever they want, and I'm clearly not the target market for WoW Classic. It will be interesting to see how things unfold...

    No rushing to be done here, done it all before many many many times. Time for a nostalgia trip I'm in no hurry.

    PS - can you reserve Guild Names, could be fun pissing of the old hardcore guilds by taking their guild names. ;)

    Don't believe so, as it isn't possible to "Enter the World", let alone gather the needed gold and signatures to form a guild.

    His twitch bio explains his tattoos.
    Only up to 3 character names can be reserved at the moment, nothing else.
