WoW Classic uses the Drums of War patch 1.12 as a jumping-off point

World of Warcraft Classic, the faithful recreation of World of Warcraft as it launched 15 years ago, was released worldwide on Aug. 27 and has been incredibly popular. Blizzard is continuously opening up new realms to combat queues and recently increased the maximum player capacity across all servers to tackle long queue times, which saw nearly 20,000 people waiting to log in at launch.

Well, can you imagine a world without World of Warcraft? After 15 years spent exploring the wastes, wildernesses and wonders of Azeroth, it’s hard to think of a gaming landscape without Blizzard’s all-conquering massively multiplayer RPG in it. And, with World of Warcraft Classic, we get the opportunity to experience those first fledgling days with the game, all over again, and see just why it was so influential.

In the world of online games, 15 years is an incredibly long time – it’s almost unheard of for a game to maintain a community like World of Warcraft has over that period of time, especially when it requires a subscription to play. Plus, to keep that fanbase loyal, Blizzard has added more and more to World of Warcraft over the years, piling expansion on top of update on top of expansion.

World of WarCraft rewinds time back to 2006. This means it takes place prior to even the first expansion, The Burning Crusade. WoW originally launched in 2004, so we’re not quite back at the beginning. WoW Classic uses the Drums of War patch (1.12) as a jumping-off point. From looting to builds to look and mechanics, WoW Classic is certifiably 2006.

Combat is slower, more methodical, and generally more dangerous. Movement across the map takes much longer than in modern WoW. Additionally, quests are more straightforward, with less chance of happenstance events occurring mid-run. You also may have to meander a bit to find out where you’re going and prepare for more backtracking. Your primary stats will look quite similar to modern WoW, but secondary stats are really different, as Blizzard has overhauled that aspect of builds over the years.

Overall, vanilla WoW takes more effort to make progress. Though the level cap is only 60 (instead of 120), you’ll spend far more time making your way around the map to find dungeons, connect with other players, and grind for loot. Even your build choices are more consequential, as you cannot just instantly switch up your specs. Everything is earned through hard work. But yes, you will need to spend much longer working towards your goals. That can be rewarding, though. Moreover, provides Cheap Vanilla WoW Gold for players.
