it just baffles me that the WoW folks are happy with a shit service...


Look dude, every aspect of this has now been explained to you multiple times by multiple people. It's perfectly fine if you still don't get it, but, with all the respect and love in the world, could you possibly shut up about it as it's very tedious?


I get it all. Trust me. I just find it shit. If I designed a system like this. I would be fired.

It was meant to be the original game I changed. If they changed the game for instances, could the whole game not be instanced. No queuing.
As it got quiet remove instances.

I don’t know. You could always scroll past. That might help with the tediousness.

Yes, the whole game could be instances... Which is what they do with the 2019 version of the game... But this is the 2005 version...

Dude, I'm not the one banging on about this past the point everyone else is sick of explaining it. That's you.

Either everyone else is wrong, or you don't get it as well as you think. Either way: please, please shut up.

2005 did not have layers and that has been added.

You get my point. It has been changed it is not Vanilla

I love when the word ‘mate’ is used to mean ‘twat’

This almost feels like a line from that Monty Python sketch.

So then, WoW Classic.....

Still having loads of fun with it, Mrs Hearthly and I are deliberately taking things at a very leisurely pace. For example yesterday evening we got a 'breadcrumb' quest to take us all the way from the Undead starting zones to The Crossroads in The Barrens (which is on the opposite continent and is a hell of a trek once you get there). It's the kind of quest you can safely ignore and just carry on with your current quests where you are, but one of the rewards was a really nice pair of caster gloves that Mrs Hearthly immediately had her beady eyes on.

I suggested we head out there to get her the gloves, and also for a change of scenery (both points she was keen on), so we ran up to the North of Undercity, got the zeppelin over to Orgrimmar and set off on foot down to The Barrens. Once we got to The Crossroads in The Barrens I then suggested we carry on to Thunder Bluff (the Tauren capital city) in Mulgore, since it's the next zone over and another flight point to grab. Plus having capitals available to fly to are always handy for trainers, auction houses, banks and so on.

All in all in pure travelling time it was about 40 minutes, literally 40 minutes to basically do nothing except 'travel', turn one quest in to get some gloves for Mrs Hearthly, and grab three flight points.

And it was fun. I think it's a mindset as much as anything, in a lot of ways the game is its world, as many people have said of Classic, 'it's about the journey, not the destination', and that's how we're approaching it. As we walked through Mulgore together and we saw Thunder Bluff come into view in the distance, and the lovely music kicked in, the point was to enjoy that sense of place in the game's world, even though we weren't technically 'doing much'. (There was still a point, to get to a new capital city.)

Later on, after Mrs Hearthly and Jnr had gone upstairs, I spent some time seeing what I could list on the auction house for a few silver pieces (cash is still really right and I'm having to be choosy as to what new abilities to train as I level up), before re-speccing my warrior to Fury spec as Protection is overkill for two-player questing, and then travelled back to The Barrens to test my new spec and rotation on some baddies, before retiring for the evening to a hammock in the inn at The Crossroads.

As I settled down I did a /say 'Good evening' and was rewarded with someone blowing me a kiss and a Tauren Hunter flexing his muscles at me.

So we've rolled Alliance characters too, and we're alternating between Alliance and Horde, playing when we've got a decent chunk of rest XP, which with the XP sharing from mob kills basically means normal XP awards.

We've gone for a caster combo on Alliance, an high DPS option but very little to fall back on when things go pear shaped. I got killed by a pig called Princess that was accompanied by her 'Porcine Entourage'.

We always find somewhere nice for our characters to settle down for the evening, although we are keeping things decent by occupying separate beds at the inn.
