November 23rd of the year 2004 is remembered as the most important day in the history of the MMORPG genre. On that very day, the World of Warcraft was released, and soon after, millions of players were sucked deep into the dangerous and exciting world of Azeroth. The Game’s scale just could not be compared to any other MMO of that time, and the feeling of becoming a part of the world known from the famous Warcraft series just could not be matched by the fledgling competition. World of Warcraft has succeeded in becoming the best known, the most impactful, and the most inspiring game of all time, and its success was not matched by any game released in the following 15 years.
World of Warcraft Classic is a version of Blizzard Entertainment’s incredibly popular MMORPG as it was around its launch. Now, you may have noticed I said 2006 above instead of its actual launch year of 2004. That is because World of Warcraft Classic is based on the game as it was back in 2006, specifically version 1.12.1.
This is also meant to be an authentic recreation of what World of Warcraft was 13 years ago. That means all the convenient features, even something as simple as a quest tracker, will not be in the game. Back in May during its beta test, a “Not A Bug” list was posted on the official forums giving players an overview of the “bugs” that are actually features of the game.
Players who choose to play on a PvP server can only make characters of their given faction on that server. For example, if you play Horde on the Fairbanks server, you won’t be able to make any Alliance characters on Fairbanks. Finally, players should talk to their friend groups before creating these characters. Many of Blizzard’s recent cross-realm quality of life changes aren’t in place for World of Warcraft Classic. Pick your realm and faction with your friends before you make any decisions in World of Warcraft Classic, or risk not being able to play with them. Finally, to enjoy all the features in the game, players can buy WOW Classic Hunter’s Pet Power Leveling from 5mmo.com at a reasonable price.
