    I meant it the other way around. Blizzard classic threads or similar threads for the various vanilla private servers there are always full of people declaring how much modern retail WoW sucks and how much better classic was, etc. I also prefer classic and TBC but I recognize that those are preferences and that my preference isn't an objective fact.

    With the exception of a few specific encounters where druids can do well because of stacking resists and their HP pool or where strong AoE threat from a paladin is useful, warriors are objectively the best raid tanks in classic. Paladins have no taunt, druids can't achieve immunity to devastating blows from raid bosses and both take more damage than warriors.

    However, if you're planning on boxing 5man content and not raiding with your tank, paladins and druids both make better tanks (IMO) for boxing dungeons for several reasons.

    1. They can both be hybrid spec'd for healing and tanking. This means you can simply switch your gear set with a macro when raiding or PvPing and have 2 healers, 3 DPS -- whereas a warrior tank would generally be useless for anything but tanking. There is no dual spec in classic.
    2. They provide solid buffs and utility to the group.
    3. They have significantly better AoE threat than warriors. Druids swipe hits 3 targets, paladins consecration is pretty much an AoE taunt. Remember that holding threat on multiple targets in classic is much more difficult than in later versions of the game and that most of your time in dungeons is spent clearing trash. A paladin tank with 3 DPS will AoE clear much faster than warrior tank.
    3. An extra source of resurrection is amazing. Having your healer die and having to run back because none of your other characters can res is a pain.

    In an earlier comment I recommended somebody asked for opinions on a 2 paladin, 3 mage group. I suggested they switch to paladin, priest, 2x mage, 1x warlock which would be a superior build for pure PvE. However, after considering more I think a 2 paladin, 3 mage group might be pretty solid for an all-around PvE/PvP group. You will clear dungeons fast and you can switch your tank to holy gear in PvP and have 2 solid healers that won't die easily to rogues/warriors. Priests in classic require a lot of micro management and kiting to survive melee. Paladins can just tank the hits and heal through it or bubble.

    I think paladins will be my healer of choice if I play classic. If they leave IWT in, you will even be able to box effective melee groups. 1/2 paladins, 3/4 warriors will cleave through trash extremely quickly and the warriors will all benefit from kings/might and judgement and have a fear break. This could be a great PvP group too. The inclusion of IWT makes a lot of teams viable that weren't in classic.

    getting flash backs, but there was the outrunners elites that patrolled.

    found on wowhead:
    https://www.wowhead.com/npc=5797/aea...river#comments
    I did see the Outrunners, and they were 24-25 elites. However, I might end up spending a long time trying to track them down since they're mobile, and they might not even be up if someone else killed them recently (they're rare with a respawn timer). Plus... four elites at once when they out-level me by ~8 levels... yeeaaaaah. I might be able to land some CC, but it's going to be repeated resists until I could get one to land, and I'll probably be dead by then.

    In other news, I got smart and answered my own question by just looking up the mob itself—the Razorfen Battleguard—which is level 41-42. So, I won't be trying to make my way into Razorfen Downs.

    All that's left are either the few 23-24 elites just outside of Razorfen Kraul, or back to The Deadmines. Honestly, it'd probably be more difficult in The Deadmines since there are plenty of non-elites to pull together with the elites. So, I dunno... I've got a few days to figure it out.

    I'm excited about playing Classic, but the one big thing I'm not super excited about is starting over flat broke again.
    I mained warrior during vanilla, and I'm going to main a warrior again in classic.
    If you've ever played vanilla, you know that warrior is among the worst gold farming classes, so I've been thinking a lot about my gold-making strategy come classic.
    You may be aware that hunter and mage are/were capable of soloing some dungeons to the tune of 50-150g per hour.
    My initial thinking was "ok then I need to level a hunter or mage in addition to my warrior".
    Problem was, I don't want to grind a warrior up to 60, then turn right around and start grinding up another toon to 60. Once my warrior hits cap I want to start gearing him up in pre-raid bis.
    To avoid this, I began thinking about multiboxing this "gold farming" toon alongside my warrior.
    One thing led to another, and now I'm leaning toward multiboxing an entire 5 man team upon the release of classic.
    Assuming I go horde, I'm thinking about:
    Warrior
    Mage
    Hunter
    Shaman
    X?

    What would you do with the 5th slot and why?
    I'll also add that I haven't yet decided how long to keep all 5 accounts active.
    Do I want to transfer all of the toons to one account (assuming that service is offered in classic) and then just solo farm with the hunter/mage?
    Keep 2 or 3 accounts active and double/triple box farm?
    Keep all 5 active and solo farm endgame dungeons?
    What you guys think?

    I would do gathering (herb, mining) at the very least. Those were super profitable back in the day if you didn't end up always getting stuck looting the nodes. Then whatever else floats your boat.

    As we need to purchase 5 mounts, i agree, herb/mining one toon, and Skin/Leatherworking. Level up whatever makes money, bags, etc and push on AH.

    maybe something like this

    1x Warrior Tank
    1x Shaman? - heals
    2x warlocks - 2 pets out, great dps
    1x mage - make teleports, cc, great dps

    Did druids have mobility of heals anywhere close to what they have now.
    I'm thinking war druid 3 mages but I keep reading that priest is the go to healer for classic
    I think this makes a good dungeon group and also best aoe farming

    Somewhat, but as I recall it required a ton of shapeshifting to make it work. The ones I remember running away from me in PVP on my warlock group in Tarren Mill battles were shaman. Stacked 15 dots on 'em and they'd just start glowing and running away. :P

    Do we know if its possible to get gold and buy a wow token within classic? That we also can convert to battle net balance? If this is the case.. it means more options regarding possible spots to farm, both in the live game and in classic.

    On Sunday night, I got a chance to record a second video showing off a, somewhat clunky, mixed-class team.
