And I can't be too bitter. As grindy since wow classic gold could feel, there was a touch of the sublime at a 6-hour long Blackrock Depths run. As poisonous as it was, there was a certain pride that I took in being able to wrangle a complete group from the argumentative pit of the LFG station (being a healer helped, I am sure). Strat, Scholo, UBRS; memories as deep as the Maelstrom. Single. Pull. It is remembered by me . The thought of reclaiming it, of touching it all again, in the business of the others, appeals to me on a level of need I am ashamed to confess to. It was the neighborhood that made those experiences meaningful. I could never recreate those days; even if by some dark wonder all my old friends and guildies from 2006 were to rematerialize here in Classic, we'd be different people.This is a problem for a costly undertaking marketed (so many other things are nowadays ) with appeals to nostalgia. It creates a quandary: how can you make and maintain a community of players that are there to find the 1 item you cannot give themno matter how hard you try? The nostalgia is premised on far more than just code, far more than even the rolled-back landscape of Azeroth to its pre-Cataclysm impurity; it is premised on the bonds we forged within that world. A world light's hope gold buying can not, really, go back to.I'd love nothing more than to recapture these days; I know it's hopeless because they're tangled in a web of context that no server might host. I will, always, come as a too-grizzled traveler, not able to return. It may even offer you a novelty into the legions who combined World of Warcraft after its later expansions fused themselves to the game. Yet it's hard to imagine most of the players remaining within an Azeroth shorn of those quality-of-life improvements that assured WoW's victory was long-lived.
