    Private server =/= authentic mechanics.

    Some private servers modify the game to allow in-game perks, like a faux way of introducing expansion content mechanics into vanilla.

    :lol:

    Lol no, at this point Rag was next to impossible to kill in the original game.

    I'm sorry but we are playing a nerfed emulation.

    That's because MC was introduced at launch on 1.1.x. Classic is 1.12/13. That's an almost 2-year difference in patches/content, so we're already on technically the end-game patch, with Blizz just unlocking content in phases.

    So no, it's not nerfed, we're just not on 1.1 that we hoped for.

    Gear itemizeation and talents I guess make it easier and the small rag fixes

    classic is much less work than retail is that's for sure, nice not having to grind out AP or m+ for stupid titanforges.

    I'm going to ask you again for proof. I have provided some sources, you just seem to have hand-wavy conjecture that "it was harder"

    Its easier in the situation where we are playing with 1.12 mechanics when back in the day we were running 1.0-1.4ish mechanics. Class balance and gear was a lot different.

    Not to mention 15 years of knowledge and theorycrafting.

    That's a big part of it but not the whole story.

    I do have my concerns about the difficulty of PVE content but right now I'm having fun doing some roaming PVP. If y'all enjoy PVP you should get in on the world PVP right now because it won't last, once the BG's are released the back and forth in Hillsbrad, Searing Gorge, etc will pretty much cease.

    I really didn't want to do this, but at this stage I'm going to consider you a troll, unless you address why you think it doesn't matter that we're playing on 1.12 as opposed to 1.1.

    Drip-feeding is a form of trolling. I'm all ears.

    As a level 55 druid the only way to level now is in Dungeons, and the chokepoints on the way to thise dungeons are being camped by gankers.

    Its impossible to solo quest right now. Not really having fun being a soft target for bored level 60’s who are wearing gear from MC and Onyxia. Tonight running from Kargath to BRD i got ganked 6 times and gave up.

    Gonna leave my char in Kargaths inn for a few weeks and get rest XP. Hopefully blizzard rushes in BG’s and doesnt wait for Phase 2 because right now the game is not fun.

    Try an alt on a pve server to kill the time, open world is aids.

    Level in dungeons (yes corpse running to the dungeon is a pain.) Or just try out of the way place like Un'goro, not many alliance around those parts.

    Also rested XP caps.

    WTF are you even on about?

    You said that you feel Rag has been nerfed. Some have brought up how we know more now 15 years since vanilla, and I brought up the point that MC/Rag was introduced in 1.1, whereas Classic launched on 1.12. The timeframe between vanilla 1.1 and 1.12 releases is 2 years worth of patching. My rationale is we're not playing on 1.1 mechanics, and as far as I can tell you haven't addressed this in your reasoning.

    Also adding on that just because you've done MC/Rag on a private server, it can't be guaranteed to faithfully equate to Vanilla experience. Heck, not even Classic is 100%, and Blizz said this.

    It's good to see honour ranks are back. Over the weekend, whilst working on my level 30 alliance warrior, I did a fly by Southshore, and landed in the middle of a classic Tarren Mill/Southshore raid. Good times.
