Oh I think it will. Even nax 10/25 in wotlk needed the resistance gear for a good while. I had a group that tried to clear it pretty quick and we just couldn't get enough heals out.

Fun fact, I made a video about that fight back then on my resto druid (before I knew how to put together a clean UI / record in good quality). It reeks of that whole era, with drowning pool music and text overlay for mechanics and everything.

See if you can find my video, 'How to: Sapphiron (10 Man Naxxramus)' buried in the pile of 20 other guides with better quality. Must have been over 10 years ago... crazy.

I'm still debating between warrior/mage/warlock. On one hand, 2 of the 4 or 5 people I'll play classic with are going warrior and (probably) mage, so I don't want to ruin that experience, but on the other hand I don't want to base my whole experience on that, choose a class I won't enjoy as much, then find out we don't play together as often as we're anticipating.
Created an account on Lights Hope. JFC their progressive server is crowded. Like, patch expansion day 1 crowded in the newbie/starting zones. I'm assuming there was an influx from WoW Classic hype. Was not expecting to have to spawn camp.

edit: should have said expansion instead of patch.

On launch it's either gonna be go all in and beat the crowd or wait a few days until you start playing imo. Starting zones are going to be horrendous

Is it just me or does wow classic sound awful? Who wants to go back to having to hoof it for hours across zones? I'm very happy with the newer creature comforts.

I resub for like a month every expac and remember why I quit. I get to raids and am like 'nope, got a job already'

It depends on what you enjoy about video games. For me, I find much more fun and satisfaction when I accomplish something more challenging. In current retail, it's so easy to coast by, instantly join loads of dungeons / heroics / raids with random people, zero communication, and it requires close to zero skill to clear 90% of normal content, then you go your separate ways and never see them again.

Sure, you can argue about 'heroic and mythic are challenging!' but the game has lost any kind of sense of community, wonder, and interaction. The only reputations that hold weight are top tier world first clearing guilds.

I am excited to play classic because each realm will really feel like its own world. You'll get to know the people you play with, for better or worse. Your reputation will mean something, you'll interact with people out in the world questing or in world pvp or doing dungeons, and inevitably make real connections. The journey from 1-60 will really be an immersive, several-month journey.

Level 60 people still went out in the world farming resources, doing quests for reputation, doing normal dungeons with people from level 50+ because that was the gear that was good and needed. Nowadays the game is so segregated and isolated and so much of the 'world' aspect is gone.

I'd be more down with TBC or WotLK "classic" tbh. I just hate a lot of the dumbing down/titanforging that came after. After 3.3 with the dungeon finder I think things just got a bit too convenient
