WoW Classic Section & Class Guides

Recommended Posts

40257-world-of-warcraft-classic-patch-11

We now have a dedicated section on the site for WoW Classic, accessible through the main menu and we've started populating it with guides to be ready for Classic launch on August 27.

The new section contains the latest WoW Classic news and guides and will be handled in the same way as retail. We'll be updating it with more guides as we approach launch.

Today, we're releasing the first two Classic Class guides for Hunters and Warriors. The guides are complex and cover various aspects of the game, including endgame, PvP, addons, and goldmaking.

Ah the class I was going to try, good stuff. Druid next please

 

Does this mean Classic news will stop coming on the main site?

I'm getting tired of people moaning about that but equally see their point.

Not at all. All news will be displayed on the main site, but the Classic category will only contain Classic news and guides.

your warrior pvp tree is wrong. you should never have points in 2h weapon spec. you will never miss that 3% damage. you will however notice an enemy warriors 1800 melee crit that you didn't parry. as a warrior in vanilla battlegrounds your leading the charge and directing the flow of the battle your largest goal should be survival. the enemy premade is undoubtedly going to focus you. early on thereby riding themselves of the MS buff that they have to worry about. you should focus on getting a sword NOT an axe with the highest damage range possible. sword spec spam string is the only way to beat mages and the best way to drop other classes on the battlefield especially coupled with HOJ and if your horde wind fury. blood craze also provides so little benefit that its most of the time better to simply go with IMP battle shout. https://classicdb.ch/?talent#LVhxdhboxuE0zm0x I've linked a proper pvp spec that most vanilla rankers will agree is optimum for warriors.

also your tanking chart for warrior's has some inconsistencies. blizzard has already stated that boss mobs will have a 14% chance to parry a player. you should have two combat tables set up for people to see one for boss mobs the other for dungeons and world play. you state that weapon-skill is the best threat increase in the game but list troll as 1st over orc. berserking's uses will be far and in between were as you will always benefit from weapon skill from your first dungeon orc and human should be listed as the best overall races. also you list improved revenge even in your raid build which most raid mobs are immune to stun in the first place. even with 1 point it will be nice in a dungeon but you should set it up with a separate dungeon build and a raid build. your fury tank build looks alright. i would reinforce on it thought that it is specifically for end game raiding guilds that clear MC in under an hour and it has a separate stat priority over standard tanking in progression guilds. specifically they duel wield tank raid bosses focus on + hit and agility to improve threat. these are guilds that are downing bosses in under 30 seconds.

I believe your guides will benefit from a class-specific macros section by a large margin.

We have class-specific macros in the guide, check them out at the first part of this page, for example, what did you have in mind?

That's a lot of feedback man, thanks! One of the beautiful things of Classic WoW is that, with more but less impactful points you can tailor your builds to your needs. I went with 3% damage over 3% parry for the example build simply because it is applicable to duels with non-melee enemies, while parry only helps against those, admittedly way more than 1% damage could. Skipping Blood Craze is also completely fine as these talents stand within the "pick whatever you prefer" type.

Sword spec is great for the extreme RNG combo potential, but I'd say that your best weapon defines what specialization you take, rather than the other way around. After all who can say no to a Dark Edge of Insanity on Orcish hands, right? 🙂 

The combat table I set up for tanking was purely an example, numbers wise. Its purpose is to illustrate the order in which combat outcomes are processed, rather than the exact numbers behind each possibility, as that varies wildly with enemy level / your weapon skill and defense / enemy's weapon skill and defense, and so on. Troll is listed as "arguably" #1 for main-tanking, which is a very specific scenario where you need to pull out all the stops to get ahead on threat immediately, hence why Berserking is superior. For the vast majority of players, who will also want to PvP and DPS often, Orc is a superior choice, and I will edit the guide to make that clearer, thanks!

Finally, on Improved Revenge and the Fury tanking build, I sought a compromise that will allow you to do both dungeons and raids at a good rate of efficiency without requiring expensive respecs all the time, hence the 1/3 revenge recommendation, and only if you require extra survivability (feel free to flex away from it at any point). The fury tanking build is an end-game thing, but it should be feasible to clear MC with it (and a shield ready on swap at any point, as I recommend) once you are well geared, fully buffed and acquainted with the raid.

Thanks again for your feedback and see you in Classic! 😄

      It seems we'll have to wait a bit longer for the much needed key ring feature that will free up thousands of inventory slots across Classic! Blizzard said the addition will come in the "first patch" to the Classic client and later clarified that a patch is not the same thing as a phase, as they can simply "turn on" features in the phases, while a patch has to change the game client.
      Phase 2 is coming this Thursday, November 14th, bringing with it the PvP Honor system and world bosses, and every realm has already switced single layer, today in fact.
      Key Rings (source)
      Yes – the Keyring will come to WoW Classic with our first patch to the game client later this year.
      We don’t yet have a certain date for the patch, but we’ll let you know as soon as we do.
        Correct. We’re able to turn on content such as Dire Maul or World Bosses without having to change the game client and require downtime the way a patch does.
      Sorry for the confusion.

      Players were abusing line-of-sight rules in Gadgetzan, so Blizzard gave the guards in Gadgetzan, Booty Bay, and Everlook longer range on their ranged attacks in today's hotfixes, even though the new range differs slightly from their reference WoW 1.12 client.
      Blizzard also said they will be taking action against players who exploit the line-of-sight rules, so we might see suspensions going out later today.

      Resolved an issue that caused Survival Hunters’ Mending Bandage (PvP Talent) to heal more than intended on non-player targets. WoW's 15th Anniversary
      Korrak’s Revenge The amount of Timewarped Badges rewarded for winning or losing Korrak's Revenge have been doubled from 10 and 5 to 20 and 10.  The repeatable quests “Irondeep Supplies,” “Coldtooth Supplies,” and “More Armor Scraps” no longer reward Timewarped badges. Many quests in Korrak's Revenge now are daily quests and reset daily. They are as follows: “Irondeep Supplies,” “Coldtooth Supplies,” “Towers and Bunkers,” “Capture a Mine,” “The Graveyards of Alterac,” “Armor Scraps,” “Capture a Mine,” and “Alterac Valley Graveyards.” Developers’ note: While acquiring supplies from the mines and mounts for the ram and wolf riders contributes to the battle, we agree with the feedback that these can be a bit repetitive. To that end, we have converted a number of quests within the Battleground into dailies and removed the reward for the repeatable turn-ins. The guards in Gadgetzan, Booty Bay, and Everlook now have a significantly longer range on their ranged attacks. Developers’ note: We’re seeing some players attack others by abusing line-of-sight rules in Gadgetzan. This disruption is against our Terms of Service (as it was in 2006) and we’re taking action against players who exploit this game mechanic. While this new range differs slightly from original WoW 1.12, it better enforces the authentically intended consequence of PvPing in a goblin city by challenging the attacker to fight, die, or escape the guards. The Discombobulator Ray will now correctly dismount mounted enemy players. Abilities that provide a damage increase to the next auto attack (e.g. Heroic Strike and Raptor Strike) will now properly break crowd control effects if the ability was queued before the crowd control was applied. Corrected an issue that prevented pets from attacking a target who entered stealth after the Attack command is used. Corrected an issue with the Gnomish Cloaking Device that caused it to incorrectly drop the player from combat when used. November 8, 2019
      Guards will now correctly be more willing to assist players in PvP combat who have Friendly or higher standing with them. However, they will continue to not assist players with Neutral standing. Corrected an issue that was causing Onyxia to fail to clear the threat of the primary target of her Fireball ability. October 22, 2019
      Fixed a bug that caused creatures such as Solenor the Slayer to misbehave when pursuing the player. Groups of creatures that commit to combat as a group will now all continue to pursue whenever any one of them are struck by a player attack or ability. October 16, 2019
      The buffs obtained from the guards in Dire Maul North after completing a tribute run will no longer stack.

      Molten Core speed runs ahead of Phase 2 seem to be really popular these days and Salad Bakers from Gehennas-EU managed to clear the raid in 28 mins and 29 secs, which is currently the world's fastest reported clear of the 40-player raid.

      More details about the run are available on Warcraft Logs.

      According to the latest update by Blizzard, free character moves from select US realms will be only available to Horde characters.
      Blizzard (Source)
      I’ve updated the original post here.
      Free Character Moves from Fairbanks, Herod, Incendius, Kromcrush, Skeram, and Stalagg are only available to Horde characters.
      We had some unexpected technical issues when we first enabled this service a couple of hours ago, and we’ve been working through those.
      Thank you!
      It appears Blizzard ran into some technical issues when they enabled the free character moves today, but they still plan to have all realms on one layer tomorrow, and launch Phase 2 on November 14.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Next week, we will take multiple steps to prepare for the release of the PvP Honor system and World Bosses at 11:00 a.m. PST on Thursday, November 14. Here’s an outline of those steps.
      Monday, November 11 – Updates to Free Character Moves**
      At 11:00 a.m. PST on Monday, we will update the Free Character Move service.
      Free Character Moves from all realms to Sul’thraze (Brazil) and Loatheb (Mexico) will be closed at this time. Free Character Moves will no longer be available from Atiesh, Benediction, or Yojamba (Australia). The following Free Character Moves will be available: FROM TO FACTION Arugal Felstriker   Bigglesworth Anathema   Bigglesworth Arcanite Reaper   Bigglesworth Earthfury   Blaumeux Anathema   Blaumeux Arcanite Reaper   Blaumeux Earthfury   Faerlina Anathema   Faerlina Arcanite Reaper   Faerlina Earthfury   Fairbanks Anathema Horde-only Fairbanks Arcanite Reaper Horde-only Fairbanks Earthfury Horde-only Fairbanks Heartseeker Horde-only Grobbulus Anathema   Grobbulus Arcanite Reaper   Grobbulus Deviate Delight   Herod Arcanite Reaper Horde-only Herod Heartseeker Horde-only Incendius Anathema   Incendius Arcanite Reaper   Incendius Earthfury   Kromcrush Arcanite Reaper Horde-only Kromcrush Heartseeker Horde-only Mankrik Azuresong   Mankrik Windseeker   Pagle Azuresong   Pagle Windseeker   Skeram Arcanite Reaper Horde-only Skeram Heartseeker Horde-only Stalagg Arcanite Reaper Horde-only Stalagg Heartseeker Horde-only Sulfuras Anathema   Sulfuras Arcanite Reaper   Sulfuras Earthfury   Whitemane Anathema   Whitemane Arcanite Reaper   Whitemane Earthfury   We strongly suggest that any players planning to use a Free Character Move do so as soon as possible. Free Character Moves may be disabled without warning at any time.
      Tuesday, November 12 – All Realms to One Layer
      With scheduled weekly maintenance beginning at 7:00 a.m. PST on Tuesday, all WoW Classic realms will be set to a single-layer. We expect some realms listed above to experience long queues after this step. We especially encourage players on Arugal, Faerlina, Herod, and Whitemane to use the Free Character Move service to avoid excessive queues.
      Thursday, November 14 – PVP Honor System and World Bosses
      At 11:00 a.m. PST on Thursday, the update will occur for all realms in this region. The PvP Honor system will come online, and it will become possible for Azuregos and Kazzak to spawn.
      Thank you very much!

      We have some Classic hotfixes today, as guards will get more involved in PvP with Friendly players, presumably in preparation for the Honor system that's coming next week andwe also get an Onyxia threat fix!
