Outside Azeroth - General Chatter / Re: World of Warcraft Classic

So Bloodsail Buccaneers is looking like the default Deadly Cupcakes realm?

I'd suggest one big guild called Deadly Cupcakes for everyone playing in Classic.

I played the beta and liked it a lot more than I thought I would. Main reason is the questing forced actual extended grouping where you socially interacted with people again vs the current experience of clicking to group to complete the daily quests and then immediately disbanding without a word said to each other.

Edit: And someone got Zildjian already (or it was otherwise disallowed). Looks like I'm Zildj instead on Bloodsail Buccaneers.

I have created Jenilea (a human this time around because I am still recovering from the crick in my neck playing a gnome!) and Lindi. I also created a rogue, Jindoran, on Whitemane in case I want to do the PvP thing (I spent 6 months of vanilla on Emerald Dream).

Uncharted 1.  I bought the remastered trilogy for PS4 and just finished the first one.  It's a combination of shooting, parkour, and a few set piece sequences with their own mechanics.  I played on "normal" difficulty and found it slightly on the hard side.  I liked that the parkour animations were fast (compared to similar games like Tomb Raider or Zero Dawn); I did find that they were a little finicky and Nathan is pretty fond of leaping to his death.  I'm pretty terrible at aiming with a console controller, so I found the combat sequences difficult, but at least the format was pretty forgiving--your health regens after a few seconds if you stay behind cover.  Ammo was sometimes an issue in the later sequences.

The story was probably fine by the standards of 2007 but is pretty thin today.  Nathan gads around the world looking for treasure, self-defenses his way through a couple of hundred nameless goons(*), discovers that (MAJOR PLOT TWIST INCOMING) the treasure is cursed, fights the inevitable FPS fast zombies for a bit, then has to fight one of the few named goons to keep him from some vague plan to do evil with the cursed treasure.  Oh, and he gets the girl (who is at least pretty badass for a love interest slash damsel character).  The voice acting is good like everyone says.  I look forward to the second game since people say it was better.

(*) There has to be an indy game about managing the incredible number of mercenaries who throw themselves three to four at a time against heroes.  Payroll, food, lodging, hiring, trying to get life insurance claims paid as the hapless underwriters go bankrupt, stuff like that.

I reserved Marco, Tulgey, and Uffish on Bloodsail Buccaneers, under the theory that if I do play (not that likely) it will probably be as a warrior, warlock, or priest.

It's been a while, ladies and gents.  I'll be back for classic as a warrior named Buliwyf on Bloodsail Buccaneers.  My blizzard tag is Nelno#1621.  Say hello!

Brynndolin, if you send me any more carp, so help me god...

My plan is now to start at least (and probably no more than) an Orc Shaman on Bloodsail Buccaneers. 

Orc Shaman Krais@Bloodsail Buccaneers.  And Krais@Mankrik as well, because 45 minutes of repeated connection disconnects trying to get on Bloodsail Buccaneers.  (I lost count around 15 tries.)

Oh, and Dwarf Priest Fallowgrey@Bloodsail Buccaneers as well, because *mine*.

I've seen similar complaints on Facebook from some people I know who play but aren't super hardcore so I don't think that's an uncommon sentiment.

I'm having a lot of frustration as a result of the latest expansion. I can't recall if this happened at other times. The short form is that the new special cards - particularly the quests and some of the legendaries - are at such a high power level compared to the existing cards that almost no deck without them is competitive anymore. Not just "not Tier 1", old decks are now Tier 3 or worse(*).

As someone who hasn't drawn good legendaries from his packs, and whose free quest was one of the worst (priest) this has left me with very little I can play. Super frustrating.

(*) Zoolock and long-game control warrior seem to be the exception but even those are using several of the new cards to keep up with the power curve.

Blizz has set up forum posts for each vanilla realm back in the day for people to post and reconnect with those that played in 2004-2006. The ER forum is at https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/wow/t/earthen-ring-alliance-reconnections/227750/80 - some nostalgia there for sure!

I am still undecided whether to play classic but nostalgia is a powerful driver!

Thanks, Marco.

My plan is now to start at least (and probably no more than) an Orc Shaman on Bloodsail Buccaneers.  I'm in Classic to see the Horde side lore I missed having not played that side until after Cataclysm.  Questing is what I'll be doing, not PvP.  I'm hopeful I'll find a guild to 1) not be destitute, 2) do 3-5 man quest bosses, and maybe 3) heal some dungeons, assuming they want to take their time and not rush through 'em like it's Mythic+.
