In other news, as a druid I've mostly healed. But I have some pretty good tanking gear at this point (not many druids want to tank/dps so I get a almost all of the gear drops). It's at the point where I've been getting asked to tank on raids and 5-man runs.

So far I've tanked 5-mans, ZG including Hakkar, some AQ20, and the first AQ40 boss (Skerum). It's been pretty fun and my first serious effort at tanking in WoW.

And... I got my 8/8 T2 tonight. woot woot!

It was quite enjoyable to watch you guys in Naxx while working on macroeconomics. Nice music selection too ^_^

10/10 would watch again.

No sure if you guys saw but they are, apparently, officially reopening some "wow classic' servers....go figure.

Yeah, seems early in the process though. They talked about hiring a team to do this. They say they found a way to support a "classic" experience using their modern infrastructure. So we'll see, they haven't released a timeline for release.

I actually have all the source code to the private version Narishma and I have been playing on, it's been very interesting reading the code and see exactly how the events and boss encounters are actually scripted.

By the way, I've been tanking with my druid in Naxx full time now. It's been pretty fun to tank the most difficult content in vanilla.

Patchwerk is my favorite boss fight so far.

So a good sized group killed all of the alliance leaders in their capitals last night. One person posted their youtube stream of the event. You can see me tanking Bronzebeard the King in Ironforge below. We went on to kill the leaders in Stormwind and Darnassus. :50cal:

Sounds like you guys are having a ton of fun with this. I think looking at the source code would be pretty cool as well... when I have time. :roll:

I miss vanilla wow, but mostly I think what I miss is the organization of the guild, the recruiting, leading a successful raid, and the exploring of content that I didn't know and figuring it out. I don't think I'll ever be able to experience that again just by playing the old content. Again, assuming I had the time anyway.

At this point there is nothing to explore that I don't already know, and learning boss fights has devolved into reading the right guides ahead of time. Not just a wow thing either. There is just so much information out there and the pressure to succeed right away that it is too difficult to ignore and just try things.

Not to mention, I look back on exactly how much time I spent playing and somewhat cringe. :? Don't get me wrong, I loved it at the time and I met and became friends with a lot of good people, but it was still a LOT of time to spend playing a game.

You bet Ashman.

It's actually winding down. The last of the vanilla content is out (private servers "progress" from like 1.4 -> 1.12.1 over a "patch" period), and when Blizzard announced they were going to open "classic" servers, it seemed to freeze the private server community and stop the notion of progressing to TBC.

I have enjoyed it, being able to raid AQ40 and Naxx has been a lot of fun (especially Naxx) as we didn't do much of that content. I think the last raid I remember doing regularly was AQ20 in vanilla.

Here's the source code:

https://github.com/LightsHope/server

I was amazed at how little code it took.
