Things to Remember When Returning to World of Warcraft Classic


If you are just joining the ranks of those returning to the original version of World of Warcraft then you might have forgotten a few things that are critical. Of course, if you decided to just make a new character to get onto less populated servers then you might also want some extra tips to get closer to where you left off on the other server.

Keep in mind that that Blizzard is allowing Free Character Movement between certain servers right now to reduce the number of players on the most popular ones. You might still be able to move already existing characters so be sure to give that a try first before making a new character to start from scratch.

The World of Warcraft release was 15 years ago, and it was a very different game. Those familiar with only the modern game might be in for a surprise. World of Warcraft Classic is an old-school experience that plays a little differently.

Limited Class Flexibility

Remember that the classes ‘back in the day’ were a lot more rigid when it comes to playstyle, how useful they are at higher levels and also the skill meta. Paladins can wear plate armor but well… the truth about them in classic is the class is only a healbot in PvE. Classes in World of Warcraft Classic have rigid usefulness which completely changed over the years of WoW. If you play the most recent version then you can see that classes can now take several different roles according to their playstyle. In World of Warcraft Classic, this is not the case.

Always Take First Aid

When Battle of Azeroth released, the First Aid profession was removed because a players heath would regenerate very quickly then. Well, before this change First Aid was critical. Health pools take a long time to regenerate normally and this profession was a literal life saver. Don’t sell that Linen Cloth, it’s actually very valuable and you should aim to level the bandaging ability.

On a side note, food and water is very important. There is a reason why there is a food vendor around Ironforge and it’s because back in the old days, this guy was someone you needed to see a lot. Stock up on food and water to keep your health and mana pools full and healthy.

What About Levelling?

There is a good reason why making a new character sound different in World of Warcraft Classic than it does in the current WoW. In the modern game, Blizzard has made it so levelling is fast and you reach the cap very quickly. In Classic, levelling is slow-going and it can take a lot of grinding to reach the level 60 cap. It’s a different game. In the modern World of Warcraft, players try to rush to the level cap because the real game starts then. In 2004 when Classic was released, this wasn’t a thing. The real game starts the moment you log into World of Warcraft Classic. There is no need to rush to any kind of level here, just sit back and enjoy the nostalgia trip.

Is it Worth Buying a Mount?

The modern game, mounts are given away and nothing that special now compared to how they used to be. In World of Warcraft Classic, mounts are expensive which means you need to save up a lot harder than standard WoW gold to buy just one of them. It takes a lot of time to get the gold you need, sometime you can even buy the level cap before you can afford the mount you want. As a result, it’s tempting to buy a starter mount just so you’re not a high level person running around without a mount. You don’t really want to do that though, it’s best to grind up some gold when you can while saving to afford the one you actually do want. Otherwise you need to start from nothing again.

Grinding Gold

In reality, certain professions are best for getting gold quickly. You want the ones focused on gathering such as Herbing, Skinning and Mining instead of Crafting. Gathering those things will give you gold and then you can also sell it in the Auction House if you want for extra gold. Ideally you gather and sell as much as you can while you level up, the gathering professions don’t take lots of time away from completing quests or levelling so they’re perfect.

You can also get some boosts from the gathering professions when you farm dungeons for some World of Warcraft Classic gold and XP. It’s harder to farm for rare items since many of them are world drops but that doesn’t mean you can’t collect materials which spawn in dungeons. Those materials are easy to sell to crafters who don’t earn any gold for collecting them, so you can also grind gold this way. Mobs inside dungeons do also drop items which can be farmed even though they aren’t incredibly rare. Items such as cloth are things that sell very well since it’s something people always need so it is possible to earn more World of Warcraft Classic gold just through them.

One Important Thing to Remember

World of Warcraft Classic does not use the cross-realm searcher to find people to team-up with when going into dungeons. The modern version of the game does use that feature when it didn’t exist in the original version of the game so it’s not included at all. So if you want people to invite you back for dungeons and group stuff, you will need to be nice, active and able. So if you start to become greedy or lazy then there’s a good chance people won’t want to keep playing with you. Basically, your reputation is very important as you will only play with people on that realm so make sure you’re nice and courteous with everyone you encounter. It’s easier to grind dungeons with groups for that sweet World of Warcraft Classic gold, alternatively you could just go ahead and buy WoWC gold on shops like

      That’s for sure, a lot has changed in the new version of World Warcraft. But in any case, I do not worry, if something is not clear to me, then I can ask for help in the Vanilla WoW leveling guide where they will definitely help me and help me figure it out.
