    I give up in the end. I think 3 hours is enough for me. Takes the piss. I changed server just to see them all full. Started on another that has 'High' population rather than full .... 17000 in the queue. I know its only day 2 but people are paying good money for this. I just hope they sort it by the weekend. I really want to binge on this for a while.

    I settled on Nethergarde Keep... not seen a queue there since I rolled a Dwarf Warrior.

    Still undecided if I want to pay another visit to WoW to revisit how it was in the old days... part of me thinks I'll enjoy casually going through it all again, but then another part of me feels like without the fun of discovering new things it won't give enough to keep the motivation up.

    38 priest on migraine or however you spell it.

    First few days queues were crazy but things have settled. Still hit the queue now and then not to different from my vanilla experience.

    It's fun, groups randomly forming to help each other with quests or anti ganking.

    Even stv PvP has been fun!

    Personally while I'm in a raid guild I'm a social so have not intent on raiding. For me it's about the 1-60 journey and I haven't had this much fun in a long time while gaming, you could in fact say it's been 15 years! I really wish I had jumped on the pserver bandwagon!

    I've been on and off playing with a friend currently level 25 - its so rewarding playing it how it was. I forget how easy retail is these days.

    So my priest is 60 and raiding. Honestly I am not enjoying the raiding part. Mainly because we have a lack of healers and I have been "asked" to heal (However I cant roll on heal gear and shadow gear is Warlock priority). Also while our guild is referred to as Semi Casual, it honestly doesnt seem to feel that way and well the raiding is very strict. That said MC on farm, three BWL clears and only the middle one was really really bad.

    While the game itself is great its lost something of its soul. Its been my experience that whilst we do have vets that have resubbed or switched from retail, the vast majority are folks that have been playing private servers all these years and really push very hard. Whilst my guild is full of nice people that I like, it feels hollower then vanilla.

    I think also given that I am not one of those types that plays the game to death and not immersed in it all I am loosing out. Folks that did the research have invested and are running the market. i.e. things like major mana pots and Protection potions on my server are very very expensive (5G+ and 14G respectively). I dont have the time or inclination to farm hard to keep up with these costs per raid...

    I am looking forward to TBC classic if it comes. That was the pinnacle experience for me, BUT I get a strong feeling that it again wont be the same given the way that the guild is.

    MC and Bwl are about as far as most guilds will go before issues begin to brew, by the sounds of what you typed they already are. If I was healing and not allowed to role on heal gear I would probably leave the guild, every guild wants a healer

    You think raiding is expensive now

    wait till AQ40 and Naxx

    need about 300g for repairs

    and about 1k in mats for pots a week at a minimum

    vanilla is a lot more time consuming due to pots and flasks and limited income / retail you can get away with so much less play time

    My plan in leveling the druid is to make him resto. That way priest can go back to shadow and I can flip depending on what's needed on the night.

    Spriests are not really in demand so I do need to adjust.

    In all honesty, in vanilla I didn't really raid a huge amount. MC I used to get to join alt runs irregularly. Outside of that zg a handful of times and then naxx just once on an alt run. No expectations around consumes, though to be fair I was being carried.

    I think that's why tbc is such a fond set of memories, I remember lots of Kara, and a few MH runs. All main runs, but none felt like I had to grind like this.

    They changed TBC after launch once TK and vashj raid launched and stopped all the flask and pot stacking to bring things back in line

    I know the things we did for progression including everyone making a warlock for soul stone,

    TBC was the last time I played high end, mostly due to what they did with final raid, 1 year wait for a raid killed my enthusiasm for more of wow
