I’ll be joining the masses who are making their way to the Classic WoW servers to check out days gone by. I don’t expect my visit to last that long since I actually enjoy most QoL changes that have happened over time – but – there is something undeniably fascinating about playing along with all sorts of others and starting fresh. Plus it gives me a chance to play on the same server as some friends that I haven’t been able to play with before.

I’ll be starting on the Bloodsail Buccaneers server, it’s a PvE RP server – and I’m glad that Blizzard has decided to allow two RP servers. They’re some of my favourites, and I’m hoping to actually see RP take off. I haven’t been able to participate in any for quite some time and the start of my WoW career was so long ago that I barely remember what I created or what faction I played.

This time around I’ll be alliance (to begin with, maybe both factions over time, we’ll see) and I’m debating between warrior, paladin, and druid. I want the ability to tank, something I’ve done very little of in WoW. I’m trying to make this play-through be as far off from how I typically play as possible. Whether or not I’ll be successful I’m not sure. I’m also hoping to get into the economy and trying to make gold. It’ll be an interesting thing even if I only stick it out for a month or so.

Are you going to be giving the classic servers a try? What server are you hoping to play on? Faction and class already chosen? Let me know in comments and as always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
