    There's no need for Chromie to get involved to roll back time, tbh. Blizzard's said explicitly before that previous expansion content doesn't "carry forward" in the timeline, and going back to, say, Northrend or whatever means you're technically going back in time to when that expansion was relevant. It's how expansions have always worked, and there's zero reason to expect anything to change for this. Literally all they're changing is that you can fully level in a single expansion, instead of having to work your way through most of them.

    I've heard positive things about what this does for story and solo-play, however.

    Level an alt from 1 to 120 in the current content and you're probably not going to be able to finish a single major storyline without massively outleveling it.

    Seems like they're trying to make it so the people who like leveling (my friend) can actually enjoy the experience as a quasi-single-player game again. This is partly what they are also enjoying about Classic right now.

    Officially done with Classic.

    There are certainly aspects - namely with questing and gearing - that I like but yall can take your #nochanges bullshit and shove it up your ass. It's exacerbated by the ridiculous 80/20 (if that) split between Horde/Alliance. Can't even go to any zone without a brain dead hunter viper stinging me and auto attacking and winning.

    If anyone thinks class design is better in Classic than in Retail, you're objectively wrong (maybe prot warriors are better, they're quite challenging. But that's it). Or maybe one button rotations are your thing.

    On Yojamba, you can go to any zone in the game and it'll look like a Horde starting zone. They're skittering all over the fucking map, being tailed by their 60 mates. I went to four different zones to try and farm herbs on a Sunday morning (EPL, Felwood, Silithus, Winterspring) and it was the exact same. No Alliance players in sight.

    I'd have never even played on a PvP server in the first place, but an Oceanic server will be struggling for player retention to begin with let alone one on a PvE server, so while I had the 'choice', it was never a real one. There's one PvE server, and its pop is 'medium.'

    I'm struggling to find groups to do anything on a high pop server as is. There's no one to play with. Even people in my guild would rather AFK in IF than help anyone, and it'll take about an hour if you want to PUG a tank for anything. This is another problem with class design in Classic., I went in thinking I'd never want for a group as a healer, but I just forgot how fucking easy healing is in Classic. Healers are a dime-a-dozen, it's easier to find a group as a DPS, no joke.

    War Mode is brilliant. I'm not a huge fan of layering, but on a server with a faction disparity as huge as mine? It seems mandatory. Oh, and I logged into retail to get my Deathwing mount - I would take any one Priest spec in retail over the 3 I have in Classic. I had to log in to do MC after getting the mount and all I could think about was how much more fun I'd be having if I was a Retail disc priest in MC than a Classic one...

    Honor released today, and it was amazing. the most fun I've had in the game to date. I participated in 200v200 hillsbrad battles (and 300v100 and 100v300), I did 5 man gank squads, and 40 man globetrotting deathballs loaded with sapper charges. Wiped alliance at kazzak for over an hour as well. Couple issues of course. The first, and it's the one that has been a problem since launch, is server stability. Any more than a couple hundred people and the whole area lags. Unacceptable in 2019. Might even be worse now than it was back in the day. Like, you can barely even get your ony buffs in orgrimmar without lagging out. Second is sustainability. Presumably this phase is going to last about 3 months. I can't really imagine actually wanting to grind honor like this. Interest will die a bit so it won't even be that long until the only honor you'll get is camping flightpaths, ganking world bosses, farming level 48s and assaulting blackrock mountain. With the lag I can only imagine the tedium. I wouldn't be surprised if blizzard decided to release a battleground early like they did with dire maul.

    Yeah you should move to Felstriker, the Horde/Alliance ratio is something like 60/40 so I've been able to have a fuckton of fun doing WPVP even as a prot warrior.

    Just a small reminder for people like me who couldn't/didn't play Wow for the last few months or so, but want to play now...
    WoW's 15th anniversary is going on and that means you get 15% extra boost on rep and exp. You can even combine that with the hat and wheel from Darkmoon Faire (I think) to grind super fast.
    I had not finished pathfinder 2, which I did in the last week.
    Also a good time to level-up a character to 120 if you have em at 110 or 100-ish. I had a Boosted (From buying BFA) Dwarf Hunter just sitting there, who I'm leveling now.

    The Deathwing mount isn't half bad either. ;]
    Event going on till first week of January I think.
