The Queue: Back to the Burning Crusade

I lost interest in WoW Classic pretty early on. I’ve been there and I’ve done that and I decided I didn’t feel I needed to put myself through it again. But Burning Crusade Classic? I had so many good times back then. I loved Karazhan. I thoroughly enjoyed the design of Holy Paladins, who weren’t good at a lot of things, but were excellent single-target healers who never ran out of mana and basically could not be killed. (Today healers are very homogenized and it doesn’t feel like anyone is tremendously good at anything.) My main right now is the same main I had in TBC.

A couple of days ago I went into some TBC raids to grab some screenshots for an article, and I wound up getting the last key pieces of what used to be the gear set I wore in TBC. I sold that gear well before transmog came around, so the appearances had been lost to time. I rushed to the transmog vendor and I put on that appearance and the wave of delight that washed over me is hard to explain.

Now I’m thinking that even though I didn’t have time for Classic, I might have time for TBC Classic. Or I might have to find the time.

Wow, that was a long intro. Let’s Queue, people.
