WoW Classic: The Burning Crusade is the hottest game right now, the “Dark Portal” was opened just a month ago, on 3rd June and WoW Classic “transitioned” to WoW Classic: The Burning Crusade. All players were given the option to either remain on the original, WoW Classic Era, or to migrate to the expansion, Burning Crusade Era on the very same servers. Approximately, 99% of the high level characters have already migrated. It appears WoW TBC Classic is still benefiting for being a WoW Shadowlands / retail alternative. Here are 5 reasons why still it is fun to play Classic rather than Shadowlands:
1. Community – Tighter Community / Sense of Community
“We are in this together” is still the common mentality of players in TBC as in Classic rather than Shadowlands. It’s what made WoW so popular back in the day, it’s how new friendships were merged, people grouping together in the open world to complete tough tasks and quests and sticking together for hours.
2. The “Drops” Matter
The loot drops matter for good. Every item is precious and can greatly boost your character’s ability to tank, heal or do damage. Epics are really epics and harder to attain than in retail Shadowlands, so they hold a lot of value to every player. Even the greens are seen as valuable, they can have great stats and tremendously boost you while leveling, and, since they have increased drop rate in Outlands, are the real gold mine. Potions are coveted and sought after, safe in the knowledge they can save you in the last minute.
3. Playing The Game At Slower Pace
Or suffice to say, at the correct pace. Ever since the Cataclysm, and the flying points every hundred yards, exploring the open world started to miss in the game. In Classic and TBC we have that again. Especially if you lack the high speed mount. Discovering the zones and mobs to kill in order to finish the quest. Even simple farming is enjoyable.
4. Every Character Progression Step Feels Significant
And it truly is, by every word. The level progression, 58-62, 62-65, 65-68, 68-70. Mount progression, reputation progression. Gear progression, from greens to blues and finally epics to the second spec you crave. It truly feels significant and like celebrating due to the game’s difficulty and the slower pace.
5. Danger Lurks Just About Anywhere
In Shadowlands, unless you jump into Mythic+ Dungeons, the real feel of the game is easy-peasy. Not so in TBC and Classic. A simple mob can do significant damage to your character and unless you are careful, you can find yourself running from the nearest graveyard to your character’s corpse quite often.
6. Have Lots of Gold is Epic
Gold has lost its value in the recent-most retail expansions. It really takes a couple of hours and bump, you have over 100K gold coins in your backpack. Not so in Classic! Most people go about with a few or dozen gold coins in their backpacks, and they are okay with it. Gold farming is hard. Except for a few players who still have thousands on them after purchasing the fast-speed flying mount. That is unless you buy WoW Classic gold. Some people go as far as buying level 70 WoW TBC accounts, or NW coin.
The list can go on and on. For me personally, there are at least 30 reasons to play TBC instead of retail or any other game.
