I considered coming back for the last expansion but then got an Oculus rift instead. Almost everyone who still reads the forums from the original Strife crew keep saying they'll come back but then don't, or they play for 2 months and stop.

I take it everyone has moved to Discord now too? Ventrillo hasn't worked in like a year or two.

As I mentioned I am still interested in coming back in some capacity.

It really depends on what exactly Vanilla means (and it means many things to many people) as well as how many others we have.

I do think recreating Dartagn and re-living the old days would be fun.

I don't know how much fun it would be past level 30.

If our 40 man crew raged, I would happily raid with the guild. If 5 of us join another guild to try, well that sounds more like work then anything.

Unfortunately Dart there aren't a lot of the original crew who still come back to the forums. It would be pretty cool for all of us to raid again in Vanilla... I also really enjoyed Lich King. I wonder if they'll still require 40 people to raid? We definitely couldn't do that again.

Let us know if you do return!

I'm still playing a bit of retail off/on so I'll most likely check out some Classic.

That said, my approach won't be to recreate Col and re-live that experience. I think making the experience as different as possible will probably lead me to play it the most in the long run. There is a 0% chance I'll raid consistently for any amount of time. Thinking 10-man content will likely be my limit unless I play one of those classes that gets invited to do 40's no matter what your gear really is like. That whole never miss a raid in a year so you get the weapon is impossible now.

I wonder how the community will handle loot and all that. Given how Vanilla is, DKP was really the best option. With how long it takes to get loot, no thanks on giving loot to randos.

Another interesting thing will be how the community will handle hybrids this time around. We now know a lot more and certain builds can be a lot more viable than we thought back then. Then again maybe it'll be 12 rogues per 40 man all over again.

Remember how sweet it was for the two Warlocks and Druids? I think we were DE'ing their tier armor before I even got a piece.

Oh, how I remember.

I think what's most interesting about all this is that wow retail is struggling with it's latest expansion and everyone is stoked for wow classic. I think that, somehow, blizz is going to need to add some old school elements to their next expansion, if they want to see it come back to life.

I personally would like to see them get the next retail expansion right; it's just missing something these days. Maybe the hardcore, unforgiving nature of vanilla will bring back the magic. I have no idea how long I'm gonna be playing classic, it's a total wild card for me, but I'm definitely gonna be there at launch.

Beyond that, there are some really good looking mmorpgs coming out next year that we might be able to get together for, if all else fails. Ashes of Creation, Crowfall, and Chronicles of Elyria, to name a few. I'm liking the sound of a new sandbox mmo more and more.
