It was a vital moment that stood to highlight the camaraderie of an MMORPG, that’massively multiplayer’ aspect of WoW which critics said was lost amongst all the upgrades. We casually chatted to others we’d picked up in our celebration about what they thought of this demonstration, and roughly BlizzCon normally,classic wow gold and recalled the friends we had made questing in circumstances all those years ago. Yes we were fighting against the mechanics of the game, but we tackled it as a team.
As a Hunter — WoW’s most popular class – you are supposed to be using ranged skills, but if an enemy comes within five yards of you, you’re not able to fire your weapon, which means we had to go through the motions of shooting off a Concussion Shot to slow down the bandits’ movement, while constantly running backward away from the fight to keep them at the ranged sweet spot. It all feels very primitive, and serves as a reminder that some of this stuff was changed because of this.
The consensus in the global chat was apt. The people were loving the nostalgic experience, but half were shocked in the numerous seemingly ridiculous mechanics that were antiquated, and one of the jokes when Blizzard added Classic and pandarens inquiring.
There was a feeling that people checking out the demonstration would buy wow classic gold dip their toes into Azeroth, but it is really only a committed, but still sizable, handful. The slower more immersive gameplay is an attractive proposition and it’s easy to get lost in, but alongside that view of yesteryear, you begin to see the cracks in the years and a half old game layout.
