    Is UBRS still 10 man able?(ik cant really confirm atm) If so that dungeon might be worth doubling up on. With 2x5 teams. A Melee team and a caster team would go well together in a 10 man. As Xandorz said for gear sharing reasons. Not sure on the exp though.

    There was no 5-man version of UBRS in Vanilla, so there's no reason we'd see one in Classic.
    Do not send me a PM if what you want to talk about isn't absolutely private.
    Ask your questions on the forum where others can also benefit from the information.

    Nice find. I imagine it's an issue that comes up so rarely they just weren't aware. Can't see any reason they wouldn't fix it since they do seem to be making some effort to keep classic authentic.

    Yes I believe it is and I was discussing that in a few other threads. That is part of the reason I made sure my planning spreadsheet noted where a 5man team could not be self-sufficient and thus put options for BiS slots that were normally from UBRS. If you are interested in that the link is here:

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

    The content areas marked in red on the 'Phases' tab denote things I likely cannot do with my 5man team...

    On the 'Warrior PVE preR' tab I denoted in red which BiS items were possibly unattainable by a 5box team (at least in phase 1) and put down attainable options... That would be realistically the best gear a 5man team could get for itself by itself in phase 1 (with the exception of some Tier 0 pieces if preferred).

    That being said I encourage grouping by at least us Boxers in the community and would like to find a strong raiding guild that can get through all content in all phases that doesn't mind boxers when used appropriately.

    I say that in part because, as depicted on the spreadsheet, essentially a 5box team that doesn't work with others is limited to mostly preRaid BiS items and most Tier 0 items (with the exception of some BiS & Tier 0 pieces from UBRS).

    Boxing teams of ten that work together unlock the few remaining pre-raid BiS options and Tier 0 gear from UBRS.

    The mains in a boxing team that can work in 40man raids also unlock full Tier 1 sets and parts of Tier 2 sets in Phase 1...

    I'm excited to come back after a hiatus - haven't boxed since Cataclysm. I have a feeling it will be fun and nostalgic; or it will be so boring and slow, and I'll have forgotten how many QoL stuff they've added that made things easier/better (dungeon finder) that I'll wing up quitting from frustration early on.

    To me the main things I look forward to in Classic, in order of priority to me, are:

    -1) Focus on Open World PVP and PVP Rankings
    -2) Battlegrounds at the 60 cap (also factoring into the PVP Rankings)
    -3) Twinking in 19,29,39,49,59 BattleGrounds without having to deal with XP off
    -4) Progression Raids with Classic limitations (mana, difficulty changing specs, etc)
    -5) 5Boxing Dungeons/Instances;

    For me I plan to Main a Paladin and view 5boxing Dungeons as a way to build some gold and prep my main with preRaid-BiS gear for the Progression Raids. Thus the 5boxing of dungeons is more of a means to an end... (So priority 5 feeds Priority 4)...

    Doing well in the Progression Raids in Phase 1 should help give my main top notch gear going into Phase 2 for PVP. (So Priorities 5,4 feeds Priorities 1 & 2)

    Once I have topped out at whatever is my likely max World PVP ranking (I want at least Rank 8 but would love to higher) I likely back off some on World PVP Ranking grinding so that I don't burn out.

    At that point I may go back to focusing on end game raiding or using my main/team to make some twinks (or both) and just World PVP when in the mood and/or when Guildmates or Faction Defense calls... (So priorities 5,4,1,2 feeds 3).

    My assumption at this point is that I will only be boxing in dungeons (5) and maybe some in open world PVP (1) but I am fine running just 1 character in World PVP if that is more optimal (assuming I can get into some good groups).

    Sorry if that doesn't make sense but I am in a hurry and that is the way I think of it in my head... Kinda a mix of the areas I want to have fun in and they ways I get to those areas with the better gear/consumables/etc...

    The point of the above is to say that if all you are coming to Classic to do is to grind out dungeons you likely will not be satisfied... As I think MiRai said in another thread the current live retail is likely better for that with a much wider variety of dungeons and more interesting mechanics.

    It'll be both, depending on your perspective. We were all laughing in Barrens chat about players coming over from BofA and playing the beta stress for about 15 minutes before giving up saying it was too hard. People expecting infinite mana, auto-trained skills, the ability to easily take on 2-3 mobs their level, and having big bags at the start. And having to actually go see a trainer to train skills. And having to train weapons. And etc. etc.

    I think a bunch of folks don't know what Classic actually is.

    I wish we could box BGs, I have super fond memories of AV with my shammies, sadly the disabled (so far) /follow in BGs, #nochanges hasn't work there yet but maybe not all hope is lost for it by the time they open the BGs for real

    I really hope they don't fix this as a bug, but you can tame animals +2 to you as a hunter at the moment.

    that is a bug, it wasn't like that in vanilla so it should be fixed (wonder where it stems from)
