Yes it's one of the things they did not revert back to how it was in vanilla.BoP items looted in raids have been tradable for up to 2 hours for quite a few expansions now. This was done to reduce the workload on Gamemasters having to move items around for players.

Re: Classic WOW

Yeah that was something they did 'modernize'. The argument was convincing enough for me, in that it doesn't really affect the end result of anything, (loot could always be transferred to other players in the raid) but this way just saves everyone a lot of grief (players and GMs)

Re: Classic WOW

Yeah our raids are down to 1hr45mins (steadily improving), but the biggest culprit is consistently loot time. We're getting better at doing it faster but every kill people like clicking on the dead body to see what dropped and there's like a minute or two of people hanging around. If we didn't loot at all we'd shave at least 15 mins off the raid time

Re: Classic WOW

Distribute loot after Ragnaros and use pre-assigned roles for healers/tanks via an addon. Those seem like the biggest time wasters.

Re: Classic WOW

As an update, we cleared BWL week 1 (over 2 nights) and after the 1st week have done MC + BWL in 1 night (roughly 3 hours total). Raid-wise, been great and a lot of fun.

That said, it's frustrating I have basically everything I can get on my own on 2 characters, so it's a little boring.

Re: Classic WOW

Just my opinion, but TBC was superior to vanilla WoW in pretty much every way the same way that Ruins of Kunark was superior to vanilla EQ. Were there a few small things that were nostalgic about vanilla over these expansions, sure, but basically they were totally better games. This can't really be said about Live because there is so much that the content is not focused, it takes forever for a new player to grind to the end game in Live due to level/content creep, but they can like click a button and get thrown in with end game characters.

I'm not deeply knowledgable about live and not looking to start a flamefest but the short version of what I'm saying is that TBC is just 'a better vanilla' where Live is not.

I didn't raid vanilla, I think I hit 60 like a month before TBC came out, but after raiding Classic I'd like to see 40-man versions of TBC 20-man raids. So far every TBC raid was more interesting and better designed than anything through P4 (is ZG P5?), but I like the feel of 40-man more. Other than that, I agree, TBC is superior in almost every way.

Re: Classic WOW

Massive black lotus change. The prices are in free fall. My server had fairly mild prices at like 140 per. Now people are trying to unload them for 65g.

Re: Classic WOW

I'm playing TBC, which is my favorite expansion. I'll probably bow out from Classic after this one, Wrath is when the game started to go downhill in my view. But having fun with TBC for sure.

Classic WOW

Iím playing an unhealthy amount but loving it. On faerlina (horde). Main Officer and acting gm of a growing raiding guild, we downed nightbane (first night trying him) and gruul last week. Itís a lot of work but I love it.

Got a 70 druid with 2750 GS in resto gear (mostly bis except my boots), 2550 in tank gear (almost def capped, just need a few more pieces). Havenít messed with boomkin yet but I have a set of preraid bis for that. Then I have a 70 hunter that was my main but heís since fallen a bit behind the druid because the resto druid is so much more valuable to the raid. This week gonna see a lockout on each of them though which is cool.

Love healing. Tanking is not very fun but Iím getting much better at it. Hunter is boring af.
