    Exactly. 200-250G Every week is a significant time sink on top of all of the materials for potions, flasks and other consumables you already need to farm for classic raids.

    Resto shaman for raiding is definitely viable. Probably the best raid healer in the game. One option is just to spec elemental/resto (which is the PvP spec anyway) and collect heal gear with MP5 -- then just heal as elemental. All you'd really be missing is mana tide and 10% healing from purification. Something like this? Then you'd also be able to farm dungeons with a tank and 4x elemental.

    In retail we have gotten used to the ease of travel. Multiple low-CD hearths and portals everywhere. But I bet in classic we regret not having the QoL of the mage portal and warlock summons on our team.

    Remember the constant begging in every major city "Looking for portal to orgrimmar 100g!!"

    Mages have a solid amount of CC, too. When you get jumped by a bunch of melee you can just round-robin frost nova and polymorph for days.

    Need to figure out keymap to turn, blink, follow then stop to split all your followers and have a nice field of fire that can't be LoS'd.

    yeah its tough...elemental without ele fury/lightning mastery is complete crap but resto shaman without manatide isnt probably something a raid would accept unless you got the connections

    I remember back in the days where everyone was bad I cheated my way in pugged mc as enhancement shaman saying I was resto and convinced them mana tide stood already when noone was looking (you couldnt inspect spec back then)... not sure how that works nowadays where everyone got addons xD

    "...class balance is pretty much confirmed to be fixed at 1.12 state..."

    That I hadn't heard before. Definitely good info for doing theorycrafting research.

    I started listening to the countdown to classic podcast.
    I am getting pumped.

    Combined with Apatheist's relentlessness promotion of Paladins. I am now torn again.

    I likely have an unpopular opinion, but I would rather Classic was a reboot, not stuck at Classic forever.

    One paladin by itself is a pain to deal with as any class. Two paladins cross healing and dispelling CC from each other are godly. Tons of defensive cooldowns, passive interrupt/silence defense and plate&shield. Blessing of sacrifice on your DPS will keep your healer out of any CC that breaks on damage (poly, seduce, sap, various engineering tricks that are widely used in classic, etc.) Plus Dwarves have the best beards.

    Once you get your two paladins geared you can mix and match any 3 other DPS and you'll do fairly well in PvP or PvE. Which is convenient because paladins also happen to be the best booster in the game for leveling alts.

    It's a no brainer for me.

    Doesn't have to be either/or. Once Blactivision set the precedent with classic (assuming it's financially successful) I'm sure they'll eventually release servers for other expansions. TBC and Wrath are at least as popular as classic judging by the distribution of private server populations.

    Once they have multiple concurrent expansions available it would make sense to provide some sort of optional progression system where you can choose to advance your character or not.
