I understand this thought. And as dumb as this isn’t going to sound, I’m going to play vanilla BECAUSE I don’t have time to play games much anymore. This is because of one thing alone.. vanilla was fun and there was always something to do. In legion I got max level in a week without playing much, got max gear, finished main quest lines, and got max honor really fast... without playing much. Then when I do have time to play games I don’t want to play legion. Why? Because I have no main team anymore so I just sit in lfg for an hour, play with people who blow, then I’m back to lfg. That’s boring as fuck man. Even when I had a main team I would logon and play the same comps doing the same routine mindlessly.
With how much I play I won’t hit 60 fast, and it’s going to be a blast. I’ll always have something to do when I logon. And then the funnest part of the game finally come see back. World pvp. I could spend hours in tanaris 1v3ing people because on vanilla if someone is better than you, you lose
There isnt really much to do in vanilla after you get your pre raid bis. I had a 60 warrior elysium and after getting said pieces pretty much all you do is raid log (aka only login during weekly raid clears). You might wanna grind bgs for gear but the way vanilla honor works it requires retarded amounts of time dedicated solely to bg premades. Worst part is vanilla classes are so fucking retarded pvp is extremely boring, theres no chance you will beat a frost mage in a duel as warrior without consumables or beat a backpedalling hunter for example.
Only thing vanilla is good for to me is the actual mmo part. Vanilla world definetely feels more alive even on elysium. You actually make friends along the way unlike cancer legion.
Im just hoping they will rethink the classes a bit.
