  1. maybe classic and tbc were the golden age of wow and wotlk was begining of the end
    but i member having most fun while i played wotlk and im sure its the same for for most peoples

  2. Man that intro could be the trailer for the relaunch of Burning Crusade, very well done, and i love these videos you make Mad, such amout of information and detail put together in a 55 min video is actually a treat for any of us wowoholics out there. BC was the expansion i joined World of Warcraft for the first time, and got that sense of a gigantic world this game is, and looked at the high level players in PVP gears and told myself i was going to be one of them, loved to see those badasses killing 4 or 5 players on their own. The leveling, the prople, and trying to solo lot's of content…. this was a great experience for me, and cemented WoW as my favorite game ever, close to DOOM and Turok 2 and Super Mario World… and…. well i still play the game today, and i still like it, even in it's current form, i would love to see cross realms being reverted a bit, to the point where people in the same server get to know each other, and where you as a low level can get to know who the top players are, and eventually fight wars alongside them….
    Well, great video mate, a breeze to watch if you ask me. I'm waiting to see you next expansions videos, as long as it might take. Farewell man.

  4. I still remember people (not a lot back then) using their vanilla end game gear all the way up to Kara. Mind you these were the top guilds on my server at the time and they did not bother waiting to gear up in heroics they went straight into Kara. I personally used my Vanilla pvp gear since that is all I did back in vanilla (I started wow 2 months before BC) until around levels 67-68 when I was in shadowmoon valley.

  5. Whoever says wotlk is better or equal to this expansion never played vanilla or tbc, honestly, what the fuck is your problem? never quit vanilla, never quit during tbc at any moment, quit multiple times during wotlk and stopped playing WoW since, shit got stale and boring, WoW became more about sitting around waiting for queues, logging in once a week for raids, than actually playing the game, WoW as an mmorpg died in wotlk.

    During BFA the first time I started recognising random names was people grinding in Stormsong for the bee mount. There were regular names in the general chat and it had a temporary community while I was doing that. Then when I pop over for emissaries now I see another mini community sprouting up while they do the grind.

    Not just names but it was things like the same people on the Pig mount, the timereaver etc that I saw every day.

  7. 05:49 the structure around the portal isn't the portal itself. Destroying the pillars does and did no damage to the portal. It will remain.

  8. Man it's been almost 2 years you can't leave us hanging like this this was too good! Especially as a late comer to hear about how things were is so fascinating

  9. I disagree with the assertion that such didn't have a brick wall boss, vashj was utter insanity. Phase one was an easy task and spank. But at 50% hp vashj be comes invulnerable and it gets nuts. Firstly vashj randomly chain lightning's the raid, elementals spawn in the pool surrounding the platform water elementals head toward vashj and if they reach her they buff her damage, "tainted" elemantals would spawn and had an air poison bolt that hurt, the tainted elementals when killed would drop a tainted core that was used to break vashjs invulnerability shield. Of course if you looted the core you lost the ability to move while the core was in your bag it had an on use to throw the core, at least two throws needed to happen because the place where the tainted elementals spawned didn't have a line of sight to where the core needed to be used. Easy right? But there's more. In addition the elementals other mobs spawned as well there were elite naga that came one or two at a time and would insta kill any one but a tank the needed to be killed before more than two spawned or even the tanks wouldn't be able to take it. Lastly there was a giant fen strider the would spawn the fen strider could not be tanked as it had an aoe aura that would give you a debuff that was fear + 300% run speed increase so you'd be on the far side of the room or further when it were off. These had to be kited and killed if two were up at once then it was probably a wipe. So between killing the various ads and people trying to coordinate throwing the cores and kiting the strider dps was spread pretty thin. For each core used vashj's health would drop 5% so she would bubble at 50% and come out at 30% any damage buffs she got from the elementals remained and the fight continued like phase 1, but now there were also spore bats dropping poison patches on vashj's platform and it became a race to kill her before the platform was covered.

  10. Aww, almost two years. Hopefully you can get the time to get the Wrath episode out! Don't pull a Blizzard for too long! Great vid btw.

  11. Burning Crusade was the best expansion! This was in a happy time before Ion Hazzikostas (the lawyer turned game designer) took the reigns from Greg Street. Ion has been the worth thing that ever happened to the game.
