How many old RH guildies want to relive all the nostalgia feels? Honestly, those couple of years playing together are among my fondest memories. The game just isn't what it used to be. The time we spent together in MC, with Ashman/Blitz/AC/Crash/JJ/Vinny/Irm/Baelfire/Tien/Mantinian....etc....the list goes on and on. The hours that Chronos and I spent at work, pouring over talent trees, Microsoft excel building dps calculators, reading these forums...posting pages of theorycraft on the warlock...all before things like elitist jerks came along.

I'll be creating another warlock, however Narishma is being reborn as an undead.

Come and fight for the horde forces this time! Join me!

This is opening up tomorrow, I'll be joining and rolling Carcophan.

After seeing this thread I looked into it a bit and was surprised at how popular private servers are. You can pretty much decide which expansion you want to play and find a private server that offers that patch level.

I'll be rolling an undead warlock, either named Scathain or Narishma, on Nostalrius (PVP). The server opens at 11 AM CST tomorrow. I'll try to be on right at 11, but may not be able to get on until tomorrow evening.

Carcophan you better be rolling horde this time around. No more gnomes. Period.

In total on their two servers they have over 79,000 accounts, so these two servers will be far from empty. They do have characters still saved from when the previous server was open, so you'll see some high levels already around.

Hope to see a few of you there!

I'm rolling on Nostalrius (PVP) because it is further ahead in content released than the PVE server. Also, world pvp isn't as bad as you guys might think if you've only played on a PVE server. It already has ZG, MC, BWL, Onyxia, and the world dragons open, with AQ coming in February and Naxxramas coming in September. The PVE server is a few months behind, only offering MC and Onyxia for raids, with BWL coming in January, ZG not until April, and AQ not until October.

Here you go AC, just follow steps 1-7 (skip the player transfer part)...

Not at all. This server is not owned/operated by Blizzard, and is free to play.

I've created an undead warlock named "Shadimar" on the PvP realm. I'm not in yet as it seems to get stuck on "retrieving character list" so we'll see how it goes.

I expect Tanks and Healers will both be in high demand as they've always been AC. :twisted:

Undead warlock named Scathain created on the PVP realm. Heading out of the house for awhile, but I'll be on later tonight if anyone wants to chat in game.

lol, just like the old days... looks like the PvP realm crashed from being overloaded.

UPDATE: Actually looks like they had some issue transferring players from the original servers. They've shut down and are looking for a fix and will rollback the servers.

They rolled back the server, so I recreated my warlock. Undead, PvP server, named Trilless.

Friendly advice, starting zones are crowded with hundreds of players. Find a spawn point for the mob you want, stand on top of it, and spam right click to tag. This includes spellcasters. Don't waste time running around. Stand and wait for respawn.

No idea. I haven't had a single issue with logging in or playing yet.

It happens to me sometimes as well. It seems to be when the realm you're assigned to has crashed. If you clear your realm (edit Config.wtf) you're go in without an assigned realm.

Also, make sure you did step 6 in the instructions and are pointing to the elysium servers.

I've been able to log on once or twice. I have an Orc hunter and a tauren Shaman on the PVP server. AnxietyClown and Coolro. See you there. Lets set a time to connect.

To round things out, I created a Tauren Druid named 'Eatmorchikin'.

Come on in Ashman, it's pretty fun. Being on a PvP server and horde is a new thing.

I may have to give it a shot. I don't really have much time for it honestly, but the big thing holding me back was not having a computer to run it on. However, the girls are both getting laptops for christmas, so I think I'll have one I can borrow if I want. 8)
