WoW: Classic

Recommended Posts

Last stress test started. Logged in got 4600 queue, no problem waited like 10mins got in. Game run so smooth. Hosted in EU so had good latency and zero lag. Just watched people logging in to starting zone.

Then started messing with my graphics settings. Game crashes. Back to queue which is 11000+ at this point and estimated wait time over 30mins.

Hopefully getting my addons set up during this test. Still got tomorrow I guess.

Starting at 00:01 CEST on Tuesday 13th August, players with an active subscription or game time on their World of Warcraft account can reserve their character names by creating up to three Classic characters. Please note that all of your characters on a PvP realm must be the same faction.

Before creating a character, you’ll choose the realm where you want to play that character. The following realms will be available:

Name Type Language
Golemagg PvP English
Hydraxian Waterlords RP English
Mirage Raceway Normal English
Pyrewood Village Normal English
Shazzrah PvP English
Zandalar Tribe RP-PvP English
Name Type Language
Auberdine Normal French
Sulfuron PvP French
Name Type Language
Everlook Normal German
Lucifron PvP German
Name Type Language
Хроми (Chromie) Normal Russian
Пламегор (Flamegor) PvP Russian

Relative realm population will be visible in-game to help in choosing a realm so you will see “Low, Medium, and High” in the realm selection screen. If there are high numbers of players congregating on individual realms during name reservation and character creation, we will post warnings about the potential for queues on those realms, giving you time to choose alternate realms. WoW Classic releases worldwide on Tuesday 27th August at 00:01 CEST.

 

 

So.... Golemagg or Shazzrah ?:D

Go Shazzrah. 

Top named server still gets more zerged then lower ones. 

Also what is the change they will open up more servers? Classic might get zerged to hell? 

 

 

I will try to reserve my name (monday right?), unsure if I will actually play. Got alot going on atm but will try to pop by.

Everyone can make 3 characters and we got 2 servers so it's not a huge problem to make one character on both realms and decide later where we start playing. Unless you have like 3 very popular character names you want to use on your main and alts.. then it's maybe a problem 😛

People seem to indicate that Golemagg is targeted by non english speakers. So Shazzrah seems the best choice if that is correct.

The test was extended to monday, playing some with Dansul and it really brings back the "feeling" from when you first set foot in good ol tauren lands back in the days :)

I wont be able to reserve my name since i m on hollydays untill 24/08.. 

I fear that they set a number max of slots allowed on servers and i can t create on same server as everyone... someone know ?

I also wouldnt be fked if they block cration of faction to balance both sides ( even if the risk to see horde more numerous than alliance is very improbable )

I'm leaning towards shazzrah.. 

Many ppl I know going there and then there is the rumour about big spanish community going to golemagg since they are not getting their own language server. That could lead to stormreaver situation but this time instead of finnish it would be spanish in general chat 😛

Well now its seems the British, Scandinavian, and the Spansish community has targeted Shazzrah, also some eastern european countries. Seems like noone ended up targeting Golemagg after all. Not sure what is going on, but the server discords are on fire.

looks like the wipe was extended to Wednesday 14th. Some extra time for anyone wanting to test anything and/or set up addons etc.

Guess that means the name reserving is later too?

Has any one seen any thing official about, whether or not the layering will include auction houses, or if there is just one?

I don't have anything official because doubt there is any blue post about it but auction houses are server wide(inside each faction) just like chat channels, character names etc. 

Only way layering would affect the auction house is if people can abuse the system(they totally can) and f.ex layer jump to get same ore/flower/whatever over and over again from different layers. Just hope they remove the whole system as soon as possible.

That is basically what I am afraid of. In Vanilla you had 2-3k people supplying an AH. Meaning you, in the first few months, could not just buy gear off of the AH every few levels. With potentially 10k+ people, that is not going to be the case. With a fully stocked AH almost from day one, Classic will not be any thing close to what Vanilla was. Not for me any way.

I would recommend not buying any gear from the auction house on your first character while leveling. Having 100g for mount at lvl40 is more important than having some extra gear.

Also noticed during the stress test that having skinning while leveling is totally awesome. Vendoring all the leather is lots of money! So I'll be skinning my way to lvl60 and getting rid of the profession then.

Skinning is best...

Other gathering is more difficult cause everyone hunts that copper vein or flower, while you shoot some thousands skinnables on your way to 60

Hey peeps! Im back too for classic but think I'll create chars on rp-pvp since the rp servers (Zandalar Tribe) seem to have a tiny bit less toxic people on them.

Won't bother with Golemagg for tonight, leaning towards Shazzrah anyway.
