I would also like a TBC classic at some point, but without flying mounts. I think the meeting stone summoning function from 2.0 was nice and one of the few conveniences that I wouldn't mind coming back maybe. On one hand, it wasn't breaking the game since warlocks could do the same thing, but on the other hand it devalued warlocks.

I remember listening to a long rant from (I think) Kungen, explaining how flying mounts started the decent in WoW by getting rid of a big portion of the 'world' aspect I mentioned earlier. It really separates you from the rest of the server when you can just mount up and fly above / over people and mobs for everything you do. Watching these streamers on classic beta really brings back a lot of memories of the same things they're doing, with taking long treks to get to STV, running through ?? mobs and dying 3-4 times to get somewhere. Just the travel was an achievement by itself.

I agree there was a certain charm to hoofing it across the map, keeping a quest guide website on the other monitor, holding off on getting the mount because it was oh-my-god expensive (unless you're a warlock, then it was just difficult). Spamming trade chat to get a party going. A friend of mine gave me 1g to start off with and I thought I was rich.

With double the levels now, something had to give.

Some of the subtance has gone away in favor of avoiding really annoying grinds.

Got into the stress test yesterday.

2 hours of waiting in queues, disconnecting, waiting in queues, server full, waiting in queues, character time out.

Hopefully my contribution helps them to fix this before launch. Woo.
