WoW: Classic

Recommended Posts

Sharding is inside each realm it doesn't mean realms are connected. It just means lets say your realm max population is 10000 then they do f.ex 5x2000 shards. Players are divided in those 5 shards and you can only see your own shard 2000 people running around in the world but all 10000 people are still in that one realm. Unless you get invited to group with someone in other shard and then you move to their shard.

This sharding is only at the beginning to help with server load and they will remove it then after 2 weeks? or something. Not sure if any set in stone date so far..

 

Edit.. so it is called layering not sharding in classic wow.. https://www.wowhead.com/news=291722/layering-in-classic-wow

Dev interview about layering 

 

So in short they plan to do as few realms as possible and they will be high capacity realms.

Each realm divided in to layers at start and each layer has capacity similar to vanilla server.

Then after few weeks they combine the layers and we got one world for entire realm.

Any advice on how to up fast and effectively ? And what are the mains points to focus on ?

Rush quest is the only way, or farming can be a possibility ?

I will play this wow classic but i know nothing about wow, never played it since my school at that time was L2.. So i wonder a bit to start a game that everybody know as his own pocket and me as a big newcommer with 0 knowledge.

Is having 0 knowledge a bad thing tho?

Green quests if I remember rightly, move to the next zone when they're grey

Yeh i wouldn't worry too much about getting up fast. Most fun I had in this game was during classic exploring and doing random world pvp etc.

But yeh, it kinda leads you from quest hub to quest hub. You can grind a bit or do group dungeons a lot - just means the quests go grey quicker and you need to head over to the next area.

There is of course always better zones than others(cant remember anymore when to do which zone), but to be honest the leveling with others, and fighting with the other side for a silly monster was the most fun i had. Level 60 i would assume is going to be max at start, its just a number. You will be able to do the boring part(1023412340x same dungeon for a piece of equipment) plenty of hours, so enjoy the fun part as well ;).

I just looked through old emails and saw one from 2010 where Gromk tried to convince me to start playing WoW with Ginnunga. That addiction took 4 years to get rid of, mainly because Ginnunga was awesome. 😀❤️

If there is one key takeaway from all these mmos we've played over the years, it's that the gfx are cool for the first few hours but after it’s mostly about the game play and who are you playing with! My opinion anyway (particularly after recently playing everquest again for like a year)

Is that a thing? I see several people using this argument, but have never experienced it myself when i go back to play a game i enjoyed before.

You also have the option to choose if you want graphics like they were in vanilla, or have a update with some chaged to texture and lighting i believe.

I don't think graphics will be an issue if you just use the max settings. You wont have to use vanilla graphics unless you are a masochist of cause. This particular style of graphics could never be amazingly beautiful. The gameplay and the people you play with on the other hand... well the gameplay anyway. :P

Almost 1 month left before start, we should make a pull to know who will finally play wow classic, what race/class everyone plan to play, and mostly, and at least, if Ginnunga will be Ally or Hord.

I will be rolling a Warrior either Troll or Orc and side level an Undead Mage.

I plan on tanking mainly and using the mage for farming and utility and a 2nd set of professions.

The servers will be released on the 13th of Aug from what I have heard, you can then go in and reserve your name if you have an active sub to WoW.

We should set up a discord so we can organize ourselves, our friends and whoever we want to play with. Would be sweet if we could all get on the same server atleast.

We have forums , teamspeak and Discord. If people wanna give it a go, I am sure someone can make a poll if we have enough to get started, then set up forum section, etc.

All it takes is stepping up!

I'd be more interested in alliance than horde, I've never played alliance before so would be good for the story and starter zones. 

I'll configure Discord for wow classic later on

Character name reservation for WoW Classic opens next week on Monday, August 12 at 3:00 p.m. PDT. Players with an active subscription or game time on their World of Warcraft account will be able to create up to three characters per WoW account and have the name(s) reserved before WoW Classic releases worldwide on Monday, August 26 at 3:00 p.m. PDT.

We will release details regarding realm names and realm types later this week so you can coordinate with your friends on where to begin your adventure. If there are high numbers of players congregating on individual realms during the name reservation/character creation process, we will post warnings about the potential for long queues on those realms, giving you time to choose alternate realms. Also please note: Character creation will be limited to only one faction per realm on PvP realms.

After release, the number of WoW Classic character that can be created per WoW game account will change to the following limits:

A maximum of 10 characters per WoW Classic realm.
A maximum of 50 characters across all WoW Classic realms in your region.
Only one faction per realm on PvP realms.
There is no overlap regarding character limits with World of Warcraft, so if you have 50 characters in Battle for Azeroth you can create 50 more characters in WoW Classic.

WoW Classic’s worldwide release is almost here so it’s time to get started organizing and planning your path to level 60!

 

 

Realm names coming this week wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
