God damn it
It's only taken me about 6 months (maybe longer) to finally get my pre-Naxx BiS chestpiece...
And on the way to getting my overall BiS shoulders. Both acquired tonight.
Both won on MS rolls on an EPGP run.
I'm on Remulos Horde. Keen to get to 60 but only 38 at the moment and it's such a slow grind. I'd be super keen to run a few casual raids on weekend evenings though.
Check yo emails and launchers, you might be invited to the last wave of beta testing for TBC!
Prepare to feel the true pleasure of penetrating the Dark Portal once again! (Literally one of the top 5 moments in the entire lifespan of WoW, seriously)
Raiding then was just so pure. No hard modes, no bullshit push the red button, just plain raiding. Either you were good enough to kill shit or you weren't.
I haven't had better times in WoW since downing Kael, or Illidan. After that it was trololol through shit on normal to farm for gear, then when progression came around it was literally the same fucking thing but a little harder.
Of course times change and I can appreciate that WoW is a little more accessible these days as I now work ~50 hour weeks instead of 38 hour weeks, and own my own home to maintain etc (so basically I grew up a bit). As much as I would love to I just don't have time to dedicate to progression any more.
PTR is up for Everyone lol, no more beta.
only for live, TBC is still beta
Beta is now just silly... not to discount only a 2 week prepatch... at least we get BE/Draenei early... but I'll be spending pretty much all the 2 weeks level grinding a shammy to 58/60.
It really is, and it's a real obvious message to Retail customers - "holy shit guys, we are SO far behind on 9.1, so um just go play TBC for now please"
(or just grind anima)
See you say that, and then to watch you recoil in distaste when I tell you that I played a ret pally in TBC.
Well I was mostly ret. I got to play whatever we needed, I tanked a bit and I occasionally went holy. I was actually a shockadin for our first Kael kill because our MT wanted the sanc aura.
Try being a ret pally in BC in the melee group. Normally chain potting smashing my arse out to do reasonable DPS (yes ret can do decent damage in BC) but when you wander in and on your first melee attack, you proc a windfury, that procs a seal of command, which procs another windfury, which procs another seal of command (the stars align!) you get to watch the boss turn around and rape you in the face.
Prepatch ETA 8 hours!
Made a new thread. Since they are going to have some Vanilla Classic servers running in tandem, best to keep them separate.
WOW - World of Warcraft Classic - The Burning Crusade | OCAU Forums (overclockers.com.au)
If you want to get back to Vanilla Classic, you'll need to reinstall it.
