    so world PVP is fine as long as it doesn't result in PVP?

    The problem I had with WoW PVP was that it was designed like an afterthought, despite having been the core of the series before. Roughly half the players were your enemy for no particular reason, in fact most of the time the same players would stand next to you peacefully as you accepted and completed quests from neutral factions. And don't you dare attack them here, guards so powerful that you wonder why you're doing these quests in the first place for them will kill you in seconds. There was no reason to go into enemy territory and the claims you could get special rewards for going into more dangerous contested territory from 2003 turned out to be rather misleading - you'd simply not advance past level 20 because every zone was contested except for Elwynn Forest and Westfall in the human half of the eastern continent.

    And wow the honor system was fucked up.

    I don't think I'll ever play on a private server again simply because of the massive RMT corruption and power abuse that seems to plague every single one of them, but I do remember what it was like to play on a high/locked PVP realm back in 2005. The people on the internet have become worse and worse every year, and this reflects perfectly well on all free PVP games.

    We can't have nice PVP anymore. We just can't.

    What's a not sketchy tracker I can use. Someone said iptorrents which seems to be invite only/paid.

    Yea, looks like BWL is set to release next month though. So true, not terribly far behind in the grand scheme of things. I forget, did MC get farmed ever after BWL was released? I don't remember how my guild did it.

    Mine did at least. But it was I think due to fire gear for some of bwl? Or just chance at bindings. Takes a while to gear massive 40 person raids too.

    The Nostalrius page is still up, and as a couple of days ago, there was a working google drive download from their site.

    Ended up rolling on the PvE Elysium server, since there is no set date for the fresh PvE server.

    Let's get to that MC boys. BWL is just around the corner!

    Downloading.


    For whoever else is also starting anew. Who else going alliance? Name will be Sludig, though waffling on class. I worship my old warrior but as a first main in vanilla remember leveling being a bitch. (Vs later expacs prot ez mode or finally even later effecient healing zerk)

    Alliance, and the 7th is for the fresh PvP server, and I'm not doing that.

    Oh man, can't remember if smithing worthwhile back in this time era and ongoing or if i should just go alchemist. I seem to recall a stint as a leather worker. Or maybe it was just dual collection. like herb + skinning or something. Need to figure out the local economy

    Somehow I managed to get my account banned with my level 7 warlock, so going to skip on the Elysium server if the GM/Mods are that ban happy.

    Dynamite, Gnome Mage level 6! :)

    Figured Mage was a safe choice. Love ranged DPS, and they'll be useful for groups with their CC and good DPS.

    ended up rolling on the pvp sever, already a lvl30 warrior named solstice. friend I'm playing with really wants to do battlegrounds and I've already done mc/bwl to death so no point in waiting for fresh.

    and mining is incredibly profitable. have 31g atm and that's with pissing done away on pointless ah purchases. herbalism is beyond painful and the low level herbs you do get are worthless.
