If you could change 1 thing and only 1 thing.

Classic Discussion
Heroic mode dungeons, with badges attached. Heroic dungeons were the best addition in Burning Crusade and I'D LOVE to do a heroic version of my favourite vanilla dungeon: the temple of Atal'Hakkar.

the temple of Atal'Hakkar.

I literary never heard anyone in the game referring to ST like that so it took me a while to understand what you're saying ).

But yeah, ST is amazing, specially with first timers who have no idea what to do. Such an adventure. I still prefer BRD tho, ST being the close second.

Easy... remove the addon feature.
Lower respec cost would be mine. I'm typically a hybrid player on every server I play on, and while I have no problem healing raids, I dont think it's fair that the classes that get pigeonholed into healing raids also have to be the worst classes at farming gold, AND the ones that have to respec the most.

Meanwhile classes that have no problem farming gold such as mages and hunters get to raid in their farm and pvp specs.

But thats just my personal opinion. If they dont change it, no big deal. Ill just pick a mage or warlock or something when Classic comes. But thats the one thing I would like to change.
High Elves model. They were terrible and creepy in Vanilla. Nowadays new model would be fine :)
Make mooncloth cooldown 2 days instead of 4.
I'm going to show my age and infirmaries on this one. I'd love a way to increase the font size on the quest text without having to enlarge the whole UI to a silly size. With the large font setting and a dark background on the chat box it is just about visible, but I tried reading the quest text this morning while having a quick run round and ended up reaching for my reading glasses.
Have current retail view distance (although since they've been messing around with graphics I don't know if that might actually already be there).

Paladins able to tank raids :) (ok that may be more changes to get this one work)


Pala taunt from TBC (taunt off friendly) was orignially an idea for classic. The designers just didn't know how to implement it well and make it work.

So i'd see it as a change that might happen. But nothing else.

Making palas able to properly tank raids means that alliance will have more tanks.
Palas (just like druids) were offtanks by design - they can be 3 roles, they have free mounts, they can heal/bubble themselves and so forth. They are good at many things, but specialist classes will still beat them in specific roles. It was always meant to be that way in vanilla. Back then WoW was balanced around the whole game, mostly leveling and dungeons, and not raiding.

Also, buffing palas will probably mean they will have to buff shammies as well, which can lead to many classes being slightly retuned or else.

Allowing people who ask for changes on the forums to even post, I would change that.


Permanently ban “ no changes” cry babies. Especially one who are crying about optional graphical update .

You do make a fair point my friend. Mostly i based that experience from TBC as i rolled tank on my pally through that expansion.

But warriors are hybrids too, being both the best tank and a good DPS. But, well, there was a clear class bias in design.

It would have been interesting if the initial idea of having night elves in the Horde and undead in the Alliance would have happened. I guess the exclusive classes then would have been paladins in the Alliance and druids in the Horde. Maybe then, they both would have been viable tanks.

Well, yeah, but leveling a warrior was probably the hardest, we couldn't solo/kite a lot of stuff while others could, didn't heal ourselves/others or could escape via bubble, didn't have strong and desired group buffs, didn't have free mounts or instant mount ability (and mounts were damn expensive), were very gear dependent and it cost a lot, are far from best in pvp (specially with no pocket healer, but good with healer and while being well geared), were often "forced" to tank even in arms and fury, and the like. But all that allowed us to be the best tanks and ok dps, so I think the game is pretty balanced overall if you look at the bigger picture (not perfectly balanced in any way, but at least they tried ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

You can't have so many nice stuff as palas have, and expect to be on par with specialist classes in their roles, it would be unfair.
Debuff slots. It would only be brought back for sake of accuracy. No-one ive seen thought it was good design or enjoyed it. It was just a technical limitation.

Having said that, no changes.
I would change the release date to december 1.

What, even if it was supposed to release on November 23rd?
Balance all classes and specs without changing the gameplay.
Because many specs and classes will be useless, and thats no fun for the people who want to play those specs / classes.

A global looking for group channel (where all the LFG spam in trade chat could go to).
Not one bound to the region you are currently in, but a server (faction) wide simple LFG chat channel.

This is technically already possible but everybody would have to join manually. Would be nice to see group advertisements while out in the open.

Just when i thought i couldn't think of single matter, your post made an excellent point.

Be careful what you wish for. Otherwise the heroics will be more like legion/bfa than what we had in tbc. I remember a druid tank being one shot in one of the hellfire citadel heroics in tbc, but now heroics are much easier than the normal version
