I Don’t Know Me

I was really excited about Classic WoW but more in a “I want to visit my favorite places” way than a “I want to be agonizingly poor again and have fish jump off the hook” way. I thought I would use the bulk of my WoW time with Cat and maybe a half hour or so every day in Classic looking around.

I was wrong and didn’t see that coming AT ALL. What has happened so far is pretty much the opposite. I thought I remembered the crushing poverty but nope, I didn’t. Remembering I couldn’t buy a mount until about five levels past when I could have is what I remembered.

What I didn’t remember is having to decide which talents to train cause I can’t afford them all. Kitwynn up there took a screen shot on arrival in Darkshore because she was so proud to have accumulated almost 30 silver!

She had only 18 silver twenty minutes later as she was killed so many times by Murlocs repairs ate it all up.

I forgot the immense joy of getting a six-slot bag from a Nightsaber.

What’s strange about so many things like the improvements with Fishing over the years I really appreciated them at the time and yet now I’m so happy the lovely improvements that I loved are gone.  I did not see that coming. I don’t know if it’s just nostalgia or what but I am enjoying all the bugs too. Oh yay! I remember that!

I now see why my first Druid didn’t make it, I’m not sure how Cat prevailed but man, I am dead all the time. It’s quite an adjustment from Cat pulling four or five on a quest to a Level 10 Classic Druid.

After the Murlocs murdered Kit repeatedly she came to her senses and returned to Teldrassil. Killing something her own level is touch and go and she can’t afford the amount of water she needs to get her mana back.

So everything kills her, she’s really, really broke. Killing something her own level has like a 50% chance of success, fish jump off her hook.

Good times. No really. It really has been good times so far. I didn’t know that’s what I wanted but I guess I did.

    Oh so true, so very true! I am having so much fun dying all the time!!

    • I know! What is this craziness! Oh, and I don’t know if it has anything to do with Classic or not but it’s the friendliest server I’ve ever been on too.

      • Very friendly servers! I’m buffed all of the time, people jump in to help on a mob when they are passing by; I even chatted with someone while fishing! This is wonderful!

        • I know, it’s so nice! It is so different from my experience on my original server. I’m in the middle of Ashenvale trying to accumulate 16 satyr horns and people kept running by with buffs. It’s great!

  2. Heh, this reminds me of an Elite: Dangerous review I saw where the bloke involved subtitled it “I’m insignificant. I’m poor. And my ship is rubbish.”

    Regardless: I, too, am enjoying it.

  3. I burst out laughing the first time I fished in classic and it said something like, “The fish got away” – I kind of blinked at the screen – and then laughed – like – omg – all the stories about vanilla are so true. I mean, I’m no newbie – I started in cataclysm where you fished up weeds and boots for like 200 skill levels – but ‘the fish got away’ – TOO FAR XD hahah. Glad you’re enjoying classic. I use it as a ‘break’ from live – I’m still actively playing live – but when I feel I want something different then I dip into classic. I’m glad they both exist.
